I was stalking my Stitch Fix order online, so I was excited to rush home last night to check my doorstep.
Stitch Fix has an app that lets you preview your box, but I never, ever peek. I love the element of surprise.
However, I *did* observe on the tracking notice that my package only weighed 3 lbs, which meant that there were probably no shoes included.
I’ve received some cute shoes from Stitch Fix before, but I’m ok with skipping them, too.
Here’s a first look:
Right away I could see fall colors and some floral prints. In the end, I lovingly dubbed this the Fall Floral Overload Fix.
I’m going to start with Floral #1:
This is a mixed fabric top that has sweater-like fabric on the front, whereas the back is a floaty floral print. I like the gold zipper detail on the back.
Stitch Fix describes this as the Apricot “Mindee Mixed Material Raglan Knit Tee,” and full price was listed as $58. This was also the $58 dollar Fix, as 4/5 items were listed at that exact price point. The included styling cards showed this top with jeans, leopard print mules and a bomber jacket for one look, as well as with black leggings, a leather backpack and sneakers as another way to wear it.
I had Pinned this top, so I was excited to see it. The fit was good, so it quickly went into the Keep pile.
This plaid shirt was next:
Sigh. My usual photography problems are omnipresent, but this Statement “Athenia Button Back Top” is navy blue with electric blue, red and white mixed plaid. The backside has buttons down the middle, hence the name. I rarely wear plaid shirts; nothing against them but they are not really my style. One thing I like about Stitch Fix is that it can introduce me to new pieces I wouldn’t have gravitated to on my own, and I’d put this squarely in that category. Price, you ask? $58. Stitch Fix’s styling cards were pretty boring with this. It was shown with jeans and booties twice.
Ok, Floral #2:
Another floral mixed media top. Another 41 Hawthorn piece. Another $58 item. This is the 41 Hawthorn “Dido Mixed Print Knit Top.” The front is a silky t-shirt material and the back is the same floaty fabric (polyester, I think) as Floral #1. The front is gray and the floral has a dark green (deep forest) background with a quartz pink print.
Here’s a close up of the print:
The style cards basically put together the same looks as for Floral Top #1, and they even used the same jeans/bomber combo for one and the same leggings for the other. Well, now I know what to do.
Breaking up the florals, we turn to the final $58 item:
This is the 41 Hawthorn “Nio Pullover Sweater.” The collar is an oatmeal color, the body and cuffs are gray, and the sleeves are deep navy blue.
There’s a lot going on, but it works. This is very, very similar to a lot of things I already own, but I own them for a reason – namely I like stuff like this a lot. Winner.
I saved the best for last. Item #5 and Floral #3.
This is the 41 Hawthorn “Cristen Shirt Dress.” I’d seen this on another blog and absolutely loved it. I Pinned it and hoped there was a chance for it to show up, so I was beyond excited when it did. The price is listed as $78, which I think is extremely fair. The quality is higher than some Stitch Fix pieces I have received.
As for the style, it is a flattering shirtdress that could be worn many ways. The style cards paired this with blush heels and a matching handbag, as well as a light colored trench coat. That combo would look great in April but probably won’t cut it for fall, so I will probably go the tights/booties route.
Here are a few close ups of the fabric:
I was photobombed at this point.
I liked this Fix a lot, so I kept it all for $212.50.
While I’m probably set for floral pieces for a while, I have very few similar things in my closet so these were great choices from my stylist.
