Stitch Fix | September Fix

Stitch Fix is a subscription box clothing service for women. You can set up a recurring subscription or schedule the service as-needed. You are receive five items selected by a stylist. You can specify a lot of style preferences in your general style survey and give feedback with each order. You have three days to try on your items. Decide what you want, check out online, and send the remaining items back in the envelope included with your shipment. There is a $20 “styling fee” for each box. However, the $20 fee is deducted from your purchase. In addition, there is a 25% discount if you keep all five items.

I’m changing up my monthly Stitch Fix post! Here’s the note I sent to my stylist:

Looking to continue building my fall capsule wardrobe with autumnal colors – rust, olive green, burgundy, camel – and standard black, white, and gray. Describing my style as “comfortable academic,” it’s a mix of structure and loose forms, like leggings and collared shirts, flowy cardigans and fitted dresses. Looking for some longer shirts/tunics. Also looking for accessories to pair.

What did I end up getting?

Stitch Fix Sept 2014 manuscripts & marginalia

Kressida Houndstooth Print Infinity Scarf, $28

Feedback for my stylist: A great asset to my accessories, I like houndstooth but often find it with heavy materials. This will be great for many outfits, and breaks up the chevron I have going.

Verdict: Kept.

Laina 3/4 Sleeve Striped Tie-Waist Dress, $74

Laina 3/4 Sleeve Striped Tie-Waist Dress

Feedback for my stylist: I had to sleep on this one, but I have a sleeveless gray and white striped dress that’s too similar, and I would prefer a lower price point. Maybe a different pattern but similar fit in a future fix?

Verdict: Returned.

Jerome Crochet Trim Silk Blouse, $74

Feedback for my stylist: Color was great, as was the fit – but I disliked the neckline and the cap sleeves.

Verdict: Returned

Tivoli Asymmetrical Zip Up Draped Jacket, $88

Tivoli Asymmetrical Zip Up Draped Jacket

Feedback for my stylist: Too heavy for Phoenix in the fall, this is a fun structured piece that didn’t work with my closet. I bet it’ll be huge in cooler climates this fall, though!

Verdict: Returned.

Lindley Front Pocket Banded Hem Top, $98

Lindley Front Pocket Banded Hem Top

Feedback for my stylist: So this is the most expensive item but it’s also the most comfortable and on-point for my fall wardrobe. I almost bought a similar shirt; I’m so glad I didn’t! This is soft and I love the fit/style!

Verdict: Kept.

Overall

September Stitch Fix

Let’s deconstruct my request, shall we?

Looking to continue building my fall capsule wardrobe with autumnal colors – rust, olive green, burgundy, camel – and standard black, white, and gray. The colors were perfect. I should have also mentioned mustard in my note, but totally forgot until I got the notification my fix had been shipped. Either way, no disappointments here.

Describing my style as “comfortable academic,” it’s a mix of structure and loose forms, like leggings and collared shirts, flowy cardigans and fitted dresses. I received a mix of forms and styles, and I was pleased to see the variety even though I only kept two items (almost three!).

Looking for some longer shirts/tunics. Also looking for accessories to pair. The burgundy shirt was on the longer side, as was the dress (um, understandably), but I didn’t get a tunic-style top. I’m okay with that, since the green shirt is pretty much the opposite of what I asked for and I love it. Oh, and infinity scarves are the best, so no complaints there.

I’m pleased with my fix. I’ve never been so specific in my fix request, and it was interesting to see how it changed the experience. I will definitely go this route in the future. Thanks, Stitch Fix!
