Out With The Old, In With The New (Stylist That Is). Stitch Fix Review #21 and #22

This one time, I was driving and I hit a pothole and the entire exhaust fell out from under my car.


210,000 miles. RIP Sheila.


But hello Maddison!

Straight out of college, just got my first big girl job, and my Subaru gets its exhaust ripped out from under it. Time to trade in for a 2013 Nissan Sentra!

(Spoiler alert: I leased this car for three years because it was cheap and cute for a starter car, but I almost died numerous times trying to drive to work in the upstate NY snow. I do not recommend. Wah wah..)


Here’s how Stitch Fix works:

1) Sign up and create your own personal style profile
2) Schedule your first shipment (how exciting!)
3) Receive and try on your clothing in the comfort of your own home, styled with pieces that you already own
4) Check out online, within 3 days. Leave detailed feedback about what you loved and what you didn’t like so much. Every bit of information helps your stylist grow
5) Mail back your returns in the provided pre-paid envelope
6) Show off your new items! 🙂

Well guys, since I’m SO behind the ball on this whole blogging thing I’ve decided to back log my fixes from the past two years. These will just be short impressions of the items that I received with pictures of the style cards included. There will not always be pictures of myself, because I wasn’t big into reveals that long ago. Feel free to pin away!

Fix #21



For this fix I asked Elizabeth to send me items that I could wear to an upcoming Fall Out Boy concert. They’ve pretty much been my jam since high school (Matt and I were probably the oldest people in attendance besides parents). I was immediately turned off when she described the Level 99 pants as “fun boho style.” Boho is not fun to me, ever.. Also, Emers? Aren’t those work pants? I didn’t have great first impressions, but I tried to stay positive.

Street Level Amber Calf-Hair Clutch – $48


What a stupid picture, haha. I was actually really excited about receiving this clutch. It’s bigger than I imagined it would have been, and it didn’t come with a body strap, which makes it not so ideal for a concert. I’m having returner’s remorse.
RETURNED.

Papermoon Ailana Lace Panel Keyhole Back Knit Top – $48



Level 99 Gracie Wide Leg Pant – $?


Okay, so I’m pretty sure I look like I’m wearing pajamas. The shirt was the one thing I really had hope for when I peeked, but I absolutely hated it when I tried it on. Shapeless, and the lace detail on the back was so small that my hair covered it when it was down. The pants were as comical as I thought they would be. Comfy, but they ate my feet.

RETURNED x2.

Crescent Gracelynn Keyhole Blouse – $44


Margaret M Emer Printed Straight Leg Pant – $98


Here’s my unpopular opinion: Emers aren’t that great. Okay, so for those of you who haven’t rage quit reading my blog.. I actually kind of liked this outfit, but Matt had a different opinion. The pants were loose and unflattering, and I couldn’t honestly think of a single other piece of clothing I’d be able to wear them with. The blouse, on the other hand, we both LOVED.


RETURNED AND KEPT.

Another 1/5. I don’t know. It seemed like Elizabeth and I were growing apart. When she first started styling me I was so impressed, and she was a senior stylist. But, boho..? Emers..? I’m just starting to feel as though the whole thing is becoming less personalized. I didn’t want to give up on her though, so I stuck with it.

Fix #22


In an odd twist of fate, I actually got a new stylist for this Fix because Elizabeth was on vacation. For this Fix I requested items for my vacation to San Diego (I wonder if I misspoke and said San Francisco in my note to her, or if she misspoke in her note to me). Specifically I asked for floral printed jeans and something for the night out. I was really happy to see that she referenced my Pinterest.


Street Level Demi Fold Over Vegan Leather Crossbody Bag – $48


I was so anxious to receive this bag, because I loved the look of it from the pictures that I found on Pinterest, but I knew I’d be terribly disappointed if it came in a really drab color (considering everything else was black and white in my fix – although my CA friend assures me that everyone dresses like that in CA). I was SO happy when I tore open the paper and saw this beautiful teal!
KEPT.

Unpublished Katsopolis Denim Jacket – $68


There’s nothing that I don’t love about this jacket. It’s super comfy and goes with everything. It’s a wardrobe staple for me and the item I got the most compliments on during my trip.
KEPT.

THML Chana Dress – $68


Another unpopular opinion (I’m full of them today): this dress isn’t that great. The length was good, but I have an ironing board figure so.. It just hung on me like a potato sack 🙁 Also, what’s up with the collar? Does anyone actually wear it up? I’d pay to see that.
RETURNED.

Papermoon Bastille Tulip Sleeve Blouse – $44


If this blouse had come in another color, ANY color, I would have kept it for sure. I just couldn’t justify keeping another black shirt after buying one from my previous fix. I think I would really love to find one in yellow. (Anyone..?)
RETURNED.

Liverpool Vinny Floral Skinny Jean – $78


At first I was on the fence about these jeans because I wasn’t sure what I could wear them with, but then I realized.. I LOVE THEM! I’ll BUY things to wear with them if I don’t have them already! So far, it has worked out wonderfully in my favor.

3/5! I don’t know if it’s just great timing, or what, but I was so impressed by this fix that I requested customer service change my stylist from Elizabeth to Courtney from now on. Stay tuned to see if I regret this decision or not 😉
Well this has been a fun trip down memory lane! I hope I’ve given my fellow Fixers an insight into what Stitch Fix was sending last year, and some inspiration for your Pinterests 🙂 Thanks so much for choosing to read my little blog.

Until next time!
– Tia 🙂
