Today I’m sharing my Stitch Fix November 2015 box, the online personal stylist service. For a more detailed explanation of how Stitch Fix works, check the bottom of this post!
Stitch Fix – November 2015 Review (Fix #5)
I’ve been really happy with my Stitch Fix experience so far. While I seem to get a new Stitch Fix stylist every time, I think they each have paid close attention to my Pinterest board and to my specific requests.
This month I asked for fall pieces that could easily be layered. I also requested jewel tones (specifically, burgundy and teal), and I made one very specific request, which must not have been available.
Shareese was my stylist this month, and she did a great job with incorporating both of those requests into my box this month. She nailed the jewel tones (hello, burgundy!) and gave me a few pieces that I could easily layer – with each other and with pieces that were already in my closet. Thanks, Shareese!!
Here’s what arrived in my November Stitch Fix box:
- Market & Spruce Fierro Elbow Patch Crew Neck Sweater
- Blank NYC Lettie Faux Leather and Knit Drape Jacket
- Look by M Alzora Zig Zag Infinity Scarf
- Kut from the Kloth Danny Knit Pant
- Loveappella Tiffina Knit Top
1. Market & Spruce Fierro Elbow Patch Crew Neck Sweater
I have several elbow patch tops pinned to my Stitch Fix Pinterest board, so I was happy to see this elbow patch sweater included. It was a nice shade of navy and I liked the contrast of the bright elbow patches.
When I tried it on, though, it was just a little clingy around my midsection. Because of that, it wouldn’t be one that I’d reach for regularly, despite how much I love the look. Still love the look of this one, just not on me. Verdict: Returned.
2. Blank NYC Lettie Faux Leather and Knit Drape Jacket
When I took this faux leather and knit jacket out of the box, I wasn’t sure how it would look on. I did have something very similar pinned, so I was happy my stylist had paid attention to my Pinterest board. But i was a little afraid of it being too clingy, especially when zipped up.
I was pleasantly surprised that I actually loved the fit, and the look. It was just edgy enough for me and would be such a cool and unique addition to my cool-weather wardrobe.
In the end, though, I just couldn’t get past the cleaning instructions — or the lack of cleaning instructions. It calls for spot cleaning and specifically advises against dry cleaning or machine washing. Spot clean only on something that’s partially knit isn’t something I could wrap my head around. Too bad, because I would’ve kept it in a heartbeat otherwise. Regrettably, I had to send back. (Even as I write this, I’m wishing it were hanging in my closet right now!) Verdict: Returned
3. Look by M Alzora Zig Zag Infinity Scarf
Tribal prints seem to be trending this season, so I was happy to see this tribal print infinity scarf included in my November Stitch Fix. The color combo (burgundy, navy and cream) was spot-on and will be very versatile. It’s so soft, and was the perfect amount of material. In fact, I love it so much that I didn’t even want to take it off after trying it on. I wore it the rest of the day! Verdict: Kept.
4. Kut from the Kloth Danny Knit Pant
I don’t have any colored leggings…until now. These Kut from the Kloth knit pants were a perfect fit and look great tucked into boots. They also have a nice heft to them, so that they can easily be used into winter. The burgundy color hit on the jewel tones I had requested for this November Stitch Fix. I think the burgundy will work with quite a few items that I already have in my closet – and they couldn’t look better partnered with the Alzora zig zag scarf in this box. Above I paired them with a basic long-sleeve tee and my favorite denim jacket (left) and then tried them with a navy sweater I already own (right). Verdict: Kept.
5. Loveappella Tiffina Knit Top
I thought this Loveappella gray knit top would be a keeper right out of the box. It’s the perfect shade of gray, it has a great v-neck opening, it’s a nice length, and the detail on the sleeve makes it just unique enough. And can we talk for a minute about how soft it is? This felt like climbing into your favorite PJs, but actually looking quite pulled together.
This was a victim of my self-imposed limited budget. On its own or as a layering piece, this was a winner. And I’m pretty sure I would’ve kept it, if those pants hadn’t fit like they did. Verdict: Returned, sadly.
My next Stitch Fix box is already scheduled, and I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next!
How does Stitch Fix work?
Stitch Fix is a subscription box service, specializing in clothes and accessories. For a $20 service fee, you’re assigned a personal stylist who will choose five pieces of clothing and/or accessories for you, based on a pretty extensive questionnaire about your sizing and style preferences. When your box arrives, you have three business days to decide what you’d like to keep.
If you keep all five items, you get a 25% discount. Some people have mentioned that even if you only love four of the pieces, it sometimes makes sense to keep all five and take advantage of that extra discount.
If you keep at least one item, your $20 service fee will be applied to your order and taken off your total at checkout.
Returning unwanted items is super simple. Within three business days, just pack up those items in the postage-paid envelope provided with your box and drop off at any USPS mailbox.
