Stitch Fix #3

Stitch Fix #3 showed up at my house last weekend.

Honestly, I forgot it was coming so this was a pleasant surprise.

Last Fix, I kept just one item. Sadness. But I didn’t give up.

Full disclosure: first glance at this box didn’t seem too promising.

The first item that I unpacked was a faux suede jacket. It was the color of a weimaraner.

Initially, I thought the cut was bad. The seams were not finished. It looked cheap.

I tried it on and styled the collar a few ways. There are an abundance of snaps and in the end, there are at least four ways to wear it.

The faux fur lining is also super soft. Surprisingly, this was the least expensive item in the box ($58, eventually $43.50 with 25% discount).

The rest of the items also had a similar winter feel. 

Item #2, a navy and fuchsia blouse with brass studs:

Super pretty. Super unusual. What Stitch Fix is all about.

Here’s the styling card that came with it:

Next up was a quilted olive sweatshirt. When I pulled this out of the box, I thought the color was boring. Meh.

But when I tried it on, it fit really well. Like, really well. And my photography is lousy, so it doesn’t show that the color is actually olive and not puce. I’m showing it here with two shark tooth necklaces I was wearing when the package arrived.

This is a good layering piece.

The fourth item was a striped cowl-neck sweater. This had a strong Edith A. Miller vibe.

Definitely my style.

The last thing was a pair of dark wash jeans. I really don’t own many pairs of jeans and only wear them on the weekend. They fit well, though, and it was a deal  to just keep them.

In the end, I kept it all. Final tab was $237, which I think is more than fair.

While I wouldn’t have gravitated to any of these items in a store, I was happy to add some spice to my usual wardrobe – which (again) is what Stitch Fix is all about.
