StitchFix #3 | Review

I ordered my first StitchFix back in April (review here) and enjoyed the experience but only kept one item (a dress I've yet to wear because it needs a little altering). I thought it would be fun to order one for our honeymoon and I created a whole Pinterest board with things I wanted in my "fix". Total fail. They sent jeans and blouse-y tops that just don't work in Hawaii. I was pretty miffed so I took some time off. 

I realized I had some credit to use up and that I was in need a some cute fall clothes. I updated my profile and changed a few things. Then I put very specific notes about cozy sweaters and "basics" in my notes. 

To review, here's how it works. First, you fill out a style profile to help you stylists pick the perfect pieces for you. Schedule your "fix" for $20 fee. That $20 goes towards any of the 5 items in your fix. Receive your hand-picked goodies, try them on at home with your favorites pumps, belt and accessories. Log into you account online and checkout for the items you're keeping. (Bonus: you get 20% off if you keep all 5!). Send back everything else and schedule another "fix".

I was a bit skeptical when my box arrived yesterday but when I opened it, I was excited to see soft, cozy pieces. Here's what was in my box...

Willow and Clay Chunky Open Cardigan // $108 // This was the piece I was most excited to try on. I love chunky sweaters because they are so cozy and great for northeastern fall weather. I like the color and it's not something I'd usually pick out on my own. It's not similar to any other items in my wardrobe. At first impulse, I figured this would be the item I kept because I could apply my credit towards it which would make the sweater less expensive. The price is a little steep for my liking.

41Hawthorn Addison Striped Knit Cardigan // $48 // At first, I thought this might be cute. It's much thinner than the other sweater and has almost that shiny feel to it. Do you know what I mean? When I put it on, though, it felt like a grandma sweater. It doesn't really doing anything for me and I'm not a fan of the red and black color combo. The sleeves aren't fitted at all which just makes it feel stretched out. 

Splendid Striped Tab-Sleeve Knit Shirt // $84 // I love Splendid so I figured this shirt would be a winner. Side note, I ordered these Splendid wedges over the summer and love them. I didn't get to wear them nearly enough. I love the drapey, soft feel of this shirt. I also like that it's not super loose fitting or oversized. I could potentially see myself wearing it tucked into a pencil skirt. I really want to keep this but the price is a little steep. However, I do know the brand so I feel more comfortable spending a little more. (Excuse the wrinkles...)

Splendid Thessaly Short Sleeve Raglan Top // $84 // First of all, how is this shirt the same price as the one above? There's so much less shirt! I thought this would be a cute "transitional" top between seasons. However, I was wrong. You can see from the side shot that the top is quite short...if I wasn't wearing a tank underneath it, this would basically be a crop top. For some people, that works. It just doesn't for me. Also, there just isn't enough shape to this top. Lastly, I can see this being an item that I have to iron all the time. See how wrinkly it is already? 

Kut From The Kloth Leighton Twist-Front Sheer Blouse // $50 // Unfortunately, I knew this one was going to be a loser right out of the box. The only thing going for that it's navy. I suppose it could work if you belted it because it looks better with some shape (see picture on the right) but I'm not one to wear a whole bunch of accessories. I can't see it working even if it was tucked in. 

Overall, this was a better box. I think I was able to convey my style more clearly and the items were all very close. I would possibly order another box in the winter. 

StitchFix doesn't know I have a blog and all the opinions expressed here are my own. However, I do get a little credit if you use my referral link!

Now I need your help...and fast! I have to send the items I'm not keeping back to StitchFix ASAP. Do I keep the blue striped top? Just the sweater? Leave a note in the comments! 


  1. Definitely keep the sweater! And since you have a little credit splurge and keep the top! great choices this time!

  2. I really like the sweater, that is a great choice! I also really like the twist-front blouse--I would maybe tuck it in to a pencil skirt or wear with skinny jeans.

  3. What a great review and such amazing pictures!! IMO, Keep the chunky sweater. It looks so nice and cozy plus fits you well! It definitely is pricey, but if you're in love with it and feel like its a quality piece that will last a few years, go for it girl :) I can't wait to get my second box next week! I'll be posting a review on my blog if you want to stop by and check it out. I am so in love this with service it's a lot of fun. xX Michelle
