Wednesday Reviews : Stitchfix #2

Hi everyone!  Today I have a fun review for you: my second Stitch Fix! (click here to check out my first review)  This time around, I specifically asked for fall clothes, and they definitely delivered!  If you've never heard of Stitchfix, here's a quick explanation from their website:
Stitch Fix is the first fashion retailer to blend expert styling, proprietary technology and unique product to deliver a shopping experience that is truly personalized for you. Simply fill out the Stitch Fix Style Profile and our personal stylists will handpick a selection of five clothing items and accessories unique to your taste, budget and lifestyle. You can buy what you like and return the rest!

Be sure to let me know what you think I should keep in the comment section!


Stitchfix Azalia Skinny Jean
DL1961 Azalia Skinny Jean (size 4) - $98
These jeans were really comfortable and fit pretty well.  I loved how dark they were as well and they felt like nice, high-quality jeans.  Unfortunately, they seemed a little short to me (you can see that they're too short in the picture below) and I can't justify spending almost $100 on jeans when I just bought two pairs!  Then again, can you really ever have too many jeans?

Stitchfix Colton Marled Knit Cardigan
RD Style Colton Marled Knit Cardigan (size XS) - $64
I really like this sweater!  It's super cozy and warm.  I also love how it's oversized, but not too huge on me.  I had a similar sweater a few years ago that I loved, so I know that I would get use out of this.  I'm still deciding on this since it's a little more expensive than I'd like to spend.  What do you think?

Stitchfix Wilsonville Suede Detail Pleat Back Knit Top
Laila Jayde Wilsonville Suede Detail Pleat Back Knit Top (size XS) - $58
I love this top!  It's really soft and not itchy at all.  I also think the color is perfect for fall (a deep forest green).  It has black piping around the neck and a black back that makes it a little more interesting.  Since the back is a bit longer, I think this would be perfect for pairing with my Pixie Pants or other heavy-weight leggings.  Definitely thinking about keeping this! (and please ignore my weird "model face".  Clearly I'm not going to be a contender on America's Next Top Model!)

Stitchfix Maureen Twisted Seam Elbow Patch Sweater
RD Style Maureen Twisted Seam Elbow Patch Sweater (size XS)- $64
I really wanted to like this sweater- I love the chunky knit and it seemed like the perfect fall sweater!  However, it looked really shapeless on me, the sleeves look too short for my arms, and the elbow patch was way above my elbow.

Stitchfix Haddie Bird Print Scarf
Octavia Haddie Bird Print Scarf - $28
This is a really pretty scarf that has a subtle bird print all over (as you can see below).  I loved how this looked paired with a plain white tee and jeans - instant style!  The material is really soft and I love how oversized it is.  Perfect for those chilly fall days!

This was definitely one of my favorite boxes yet!  Everything definitely fit my style and I could see myself keeping (almost) every piece.  With Stitchfix, you get a 25% discount for buying all five items.  For me, this would bring the price of my box down to $214.  Not too bad!

If you're interested in trying Stitchfix, I would appreciate it if you used my referral code!  I'm not sponsored by Stitchfix and I paid for this box, so getting some referrals would definitely help me (I get $25 for each referral!)

What do you think?  What should I keep?
Have you ever tried Stitch Fix?

  1. I haven't tried Stitch Fix mainly because I like shopping for my own clothes and always think I wont like what they pick. But, lately I can't seem to find a darn thing in the stores so maybe I should give it a try! I hate the new style of shapeless and boxy, I always look so lost in those cuts and they do nothing for me either. I really need new fall clothes! Those jeans would be perfect for you if they weren't too short!

    1. It's definitely a lot of fun to try and I always find a few things that I like! I agree that it's better to shop yourself, but every once in a while I like to try this out :)

  2. I haven't done the Stitch Fix thing either, mainly because I'm a serious bargain hunter when it comes to clothes/shoes, and I also like to get pieces that remind me of trips or places when I do decide to pay "regular" price for clothes, e.g. my lopapeysa from Iceland. :) I LOVE that scarf, though!!! Definitely a keeper!

    1. That's a great point! I do like to do stitchfix every once in a while because I like the surprise..but it's way too expensive to do every month. Once or twice a year is good for me :)

  3. The knit top is very cute. It’s still warm here, but I need to start buying long-sleeve shirts to replenish my winter collection. I had to weed out some old tops when spring sprung.

    1. I have to start looking through my long sleeve things as well. Seasons are about to change here so I have to figure out what I need :)

  5. I really like the Elbow Patch Sweater... I've done Stitch Fix in the past and just haven't been totally sold, so I'm waiting until October/November for some solid late fall/winter pieces. Not that I need any more sweaters....

  8. I've tried StitchFix a few times and have kept 1 or 2 things each time but feel like they aren't really paying attention to my feedback/requests which is a little frustrating.
    I love the cardigan! Looks so cozy. Adding a scarf is one of my favorite tricks to spruce up a basic outfit. Looking forward to breaking out my scarf collection now that it's fall!

    1. That's too bad :( They seem to pay attention most to my pinterest boards and pick similar items, so if you don't link yours and keep it updated I would suggest that! I'm so excited for scarf season too...so much fun :)

  9. I don't recognize any of the brands-how is the quality of the clothing? I love the cardigan! So cute and comfy!

    1. It's pretty good! A little overpriced but not terrible quality (like forever 21). More similar to JCrew. Everything I've purchased has stayed in good shape!

  10. My favorite thing is the scarf, but I also love that forest green top (skirt looks really cute with it) & the cardi, which you can dress up or down. The jeans look great on you, but if you think they're too short, I'd return them. And I agree about the other sweater. It also looks like the sleeves are a bit short, though I like my sleeves really long.

    1. I have pretty long arms, so I prefer long sleeves as well! I have bony hands and wrists so I prefer to keep them covered :)

  12. I think the elbow patch sweater looks great on you! I got the same sweater in my box today so I was trying to see how it looked on others and came across your blog, and I think I'm sold on it now!
