Stitch Fix #9

Ok, last week I wrote about how I thought Stitch Fix had jumped the shark and I was seriously contemplating a break up.

And then a new box arrived on my doorstep and it was all “Reunited” by Peaches and Herb. 

Reunited and it feels so good
Reunited ’cause we understood
There’s one perfect fit
And, sugar, this one is it
We both are so excited ’cause we’re reunited, hey, hey

Unboxing photo #1:

All I could see was a dark blob…

which turned out to be this jacket:

This Tart Hala Wrap Jacket is made of supremely soft fleece, and basically it is right up my alley, style-wise.

The fit was like a cozy robe, but in the best possible way. It was also mightily similar in fit to the M.M. LaFleur Morandi sweater I happened to be wearing at the time, and I love that sweater. Good pick, Stitch Fix, good pick.

Next up: this Market & Spruce Fierro Elbow Patch Crew Neck Sweater.

FullSizeRender-4

This is a basic black crew neck sweater with gray elbow patches.

I’d been pinning a lot of elbow patch sweaters to my Stitch Fix style board, so this was another good choice from my stylist. It’s minimalist. It’s modern. I loved it.

Item #3 was a pair of Gorjana earrings:

These are described as “Heather Hammered Bar Drop Earrings.” I don’t have anything similar, so I like them. At $34, they’re also not too spendy.

I didn’t know how to feel about the next piece, these jeans:

At first I couldn’t figure out what color these Level 99 Giovanni Straight Leg Jeans were. Green? Gray? Faded black? The stylist’s note said they were gray.

Ok, let’s go with that.

I don’t have any gray jeans and the fit was alright, so I was on the fence.

This shirt was piece #5:

As soon as I saw this Papermoon Tigard Lace Back Knit Top, I hated it. The tag says this was made for Stitch Fix.

This just looked so cheap. The striped fabric is henley material and the back has an internal lace layer with a shorter back. The colors are faded browns. Blech.

And yet…

I tried it on, and it wasn’t terrible. The stretchy fabric was soft and the muted colors actually looked good with the sweater I was wearing. While I would never pick this out in a store, I am contemplating keeping it for the buy-it-all Stitch Fix discount.

And now for some Stitch Fix math:

  • I like the Tart jacket ($98) and the crew neck sweater ($58) = $156
  • The earrings ($34) are also pretty cool. $156 + $34 = $190
  • The jeans are listed at $98 and the knit top is $58
  • Retail for everything is $346, but the Buy 5 Discount subtracts $86.50 and the Styling Fee credit is $20, so the total to keep it all is $239.50.

I’m not sure I’m feeling Fix #9 to the tune of $239.50, but I am definitely interested in the jacket, sweater and earrings.

And overall, this Fix was the best one in months. A big Note to Self is that I need to keep pinning more things I like to my Pinterest style board, which I think made all the difference.

Are you still into Stitch Fix?
