October Stitch Fix

Guess what showed up on my door step? My October Stitch Fix box! This month's box focused on keeping me warm through the fall and winter. My stylist Janet must have had a sixth sense because she pulled pieces that were similar to things I had been drooling over in catalogs and fashion boards. This month's fix has me really undecided on what to keep. I loved two of these sweaters the moment I pulled them out of the box. This is where you come in to play! Help me decide what to keep and what to send back. Before we get started on what's in my box and figuring out what to keep, here's how Stitch Fix works just incase you've been living without the internet.

Start by filling out your style profile. You will complete all sorts of questions on sizing, pricing, preferences, colors, etc. You can also write notes about likes and dislikes. Make sure to link your fashion board on Pinterest so your stylist can see what you like. This really helps! The notes to your stylist can really help determine what you get in your box. Take the time to write your stylist a note!

Next, order your first fix! Your credit card will be charged a $20.00 styling fee however, if you keep any item [one or more] you will be credited back the $20.00 towards that purchase. I always recommend keeping at least one item or you are essentially giving away $20.00 and getting nothing in return. You will receive 5 items (made up of clothing, jewelry, and handbags). I personally never want jewelry in my fix so I just always let my stylist know! If you refer a friend you get credit so your styling fee could potentially be free.

When your box arrives decide what you want to keep and what you want to send back (in the pre-paid postage envelope)! You have 3 business days to decide so use this time to try everything on, see what you have in your closet that pairs well with it and don't be afraid to yes to something that you wouldn't normally. This is what makes Stitch Fix fun! It's like being a celebrity and getting clothing sent to you! I've chosen to receive monthly fixes but remember it is in no way a subscription service and you are able to decide when you want another fix, whether that be in 6 months or 2 years from your first fix! As always, if you have any questions feel free to leave them in the comments section below. To save some cash on future fixes they offer an awesome referral package, if you use my referral link I'll get to bypass the styling fee at least once!

Let's get started! Remember - If you see anything that you like below, feel free to pin it and/or ask your stylist in the notes section of your next fix for something similar! 
1.  En Crème. Henny Cable Knit Pullover Sweater. Size Small 
I loved this sweater the moment I pulled it out of the box. It's soft, cozy and can be styled with anything. I'm also loving the color. I feel like this is a sweater style that's been in style for decades and can be worn for decades more.
2. Le Lis. Shelten Dolman Pullover Sweater. Size Small

I had seen other Stitch Fixers receive this sweater in other color variations but never in this combo. I triple love it! It's warm, a little thick but super durable. I feel like this is a sweater I could have for years and it never go out of style. Then... I tried it on and feel like it makes me look 30 pounds heavier. Thoughts?
3. RD Style. Warren Airy Knit Cocoon Cardigan. Size Small
A perfect fall color! When I pulled it out of the box, I was like this is not a keeper but then I tried it on and can't decide. The holes in the sweater are a little bigger than I usually have in my knit cardigans. My fingers seemed to catch in it while trying to put it on and take it off. Thoughts? Keep it or send it back?
4. En Crème. Peppi Open Cardigan. Size Small

This cardigan is completely out of my comfort zone. The sweater blends color and design and is extremely thick and warm. Because of it's thickness, the sweater is very heavy. I can't decide if I like the short sleeves.

5. RD Style. Calandri Contrast Sleeve Poncho. Size Small

Perfect for the winter and super stylish this poncho can be worn loose or brought together with a belt. While it can't be worn over other clothing because of the built in sleeves you can style it for work or a night out on the town. It also has button details on the sides. Because the poncho is rather large when it folds on itself it hides the buttons.
What would you keep? What would you send back?

I love the third sweater, wraps are my favorite! And that cranberry color is gorgeous for fall!!

I really like the last two! I would put those in my own stitch fix!

Unknown said...

I love a good stitch fix reveal! 😉 I prefer the first sweater... Then again I am drawn to more neutral, classic pieces. I just think you can't go wrong with a cream cable knit!

I think I like the second and third items best. They definitely all make me anxious for sweater weather :)

LOVE #2 and #3. :-)

Jenn said...

I would keep all of these things..and thats a problem haha. around how much do each of the items run roughly? I have so many cardigans that I need no more, but these all look adorable!

I like 1 and 3 as I'm a bit over black, white and grey. But it's up to you. Pick a cardi and a sweater so you have both sorts.

I love the options but I think some of them look big on you like your adorable self could have used an extra small. You look cute as a button in all of the pics regardless!

Of all of them, the maroon one is my favorite!
