October Stitch Fix Review
Hello, friends! It’s time for your October Stitch Fix review. I know what you’re thinking, it’s November. And you’re right. Harvest is a super busy time for us. And while I tried to get this review out for you last week, with all the Halloween festivities, I just couldn’t pull it off. Luckily, Stitch Fix is delivered right to my door, so regardless of how busy the season is, there is always time to shop the box without ever leaving my home! It really is the best way for moms to shop.
How does it work?
Stitch fix is an online styling service that provides you with 5 pieces personalized to you. Items range from clothing to shoes to accessories. When signing up for Stitch Fix, you fill out a style profile to give them an idea of your price range, body shape and size, preferences, and style. You also have an opportunity to write a note to your stylist explaining any specifics for that fix (i.e. particular needs, upcoming events, must haves, etc). Unlike most subscription services, there are no set number of required fixes. You can sign up for as often as monthly or simply schedule them along the way as needed.
After you sign up, you are charged a $20 styling fee, which is then applied to any items you decide to keep. If you love and keep all 5 items, there is a 25% discount applied to your entire purchase. Once they are mailed to you, you have 3 days to choose what you like and what you don’t, check out on an app on your phone, and then throw the pieces you don’t want into a prepaid envelope they provided and pop it back in the mail. Super simple and you never have to leave your own home (can I get an Amen?!). You can also check out my post how to get the most out of Stitch Fix for Stitch Fix tips.
How do I sign up?
What I asked for:
This month I asked for colored skinny jeans, great basics, and a possible option with sleeves for our upcoming beach pictures. Last month I asked for pieces that would work for our family photo shoot coming up and kept a sleeveless maxi dress. Check out the full review here. Because I can be a bit lighter-complected (read pale) in the dark Midwest months, I think sleeves may be a better option for January pictures. And options are always good when it comes to family pictures!
So for the October Stitch Fix Review:
Papermoon Laramie Off The Shoulder Top. My stylist sent this top as the sleeved option for my beach family pictures. It fits well within the color scheme and does offer more coverage than the sleeveless maxi from the last fix. This top is very nice and would be great for some, but not me. It’s intended to be off the shoulder, which feels way too constricting for my taste. I’m also positive it would be something I would be constantly adjusting during the photos…I need easy to wear pieces that I can run after children in! The fit is wide and flowy, which can sometimes read as boxy on my figure. And this time was no exception. The print was beautiful, but somehow seemed too busy or big too blend nicely with all the other outfits.
Kaileigh Shaney Raglan Printed Sleeve Knit Top. This raglan knit top has printed sleeves that mimic lace. It’s a nice basic that could be layered with a vest or scarf to add some interest and dress up. Or it could be worn alone with sneakers for a more casual feel. However, it doesn’t fit well within my style. I find a band at the waist tends to accentuate an area I try to camouflage. The knit blend also feels almost sweater like. I prefer my basics and more casual pieces to be less fitted and more wash and wear materials. I find that this type of knit snags easy, so I tend to go for the softer, more durable knit blends. This B.P. Side Slit Tee from Nordstrom is much more my style. It meets all my criteria for basic layering pieces: affordable, washes well, and feels like you’re wearing pajamas. It’s actually on sale now for even cheaper! If I didn’t already own it every color, I’d order another today!
HIP Analis Graphic Knit Tee. I loved this graphic tee! Let’s be honest, I love most graphic tees! This one was so very soft with the perfect high low hemline! The high low hem allows you to pull off the perfect front tuck with jeans. As well as provides for full coverage of your backside when left out with leggings. (If you’re looking for the most amazing leggings, check out these Zella Leggings…they are the best high waisted leggings I have ever tried!). This tee also has a great faux ripped neckline, which is super cute and flattering. I love this top, but the price just feels too high for a tee.
If you’re looking for a similar look at a cheaper price, I highly recommend this Pioneer graphic tee at Cloth + Cabin. It’s got that same soft fabric and high low hemline, for a super cheap price! It’s on sale for $13 with an added 10% off when you use Coupon Code MIDST10.
Colette Romey Cold Shoulder Knit Top. Once again this top was a nice basic tee with a super soft material. It has cold shoulder slits to add a different detail to an otherwise ordinary top. This knit top has a loose, wide shape. It fits a bit shorter, so would be best paired with high waisted bottoms. Like I mentioned above, short, wide cuts tend to look boxy on my shape. I also already have an olive basic tee that I love. The Madewell Whisper Cotton V Neck Tee is, in my opinion, the best basic tee. It comes in a ton of colors including the golden yellow color trending now. And is longer with a side slit, which is a much more flattering shape. Plus it’s always under $20 and is frequently on sale.
Liverpool Elizabeth Super Skinny Jean. My stylist sent these as a colored jean option, and I love them! I’ve been wanting to try a pair of jeans with an elastic waist for a while now. Because let’s face it, elastic waistbands are heaven. I use any excuse I can to wear them, and now I have a jean option! They are a skinny fit with a faded black color. These jeans have a high rise. They are super soft and extremely comfortable. I cuffed them here, but they can be worn either way. If you are a lover of all things elastic waist like I am, I highly recommend these jeans!
What about you? Have you tried an elastic waist jean? What is your favorite basic piece? I hope you enjoyed my review!
