September Stitch Fix Review

Hello lovlies! It's Thursday and I was surprised to see that my September Stitch Fix showed up a day early, so yay! This one was kind of a mixed bag for me. I liked everything, but only loved 1-2 things. I'm still deciding what I want to keep though, so your opinions are very welcome :-)


One of the reasons why I love Stitch Fix so much is that I feel like they really listen to me. I like the little personal notes they send every month, and that they take the time to read my blog to find out more about me and what I'm looking for.


If you need the details about Stitch Fix, here's the details:

First, go to stitchfix.com and you create your style profile. Also, create a Stitch Fix Style pinboard and link it to your profile so that your stylists can get a feel for your clothing tastes and preferences. Then schedule your fix!! The stylists will hand pick 5 items for you to try on. They send the clothing pieces directly to your house, you try them on and decide what to keep (if anything) and then you send back what you don't want. Super easy and convenient!
  • There's a $20 styling fee, which you can use toward your order. (that's awesome!!)
  • If you keep all 5 items you receive 25% off your order.
  • You choose your price range.
  • The more feedback you give on the pieces sent to you, the better they get over time. So be sure to be very specific to your stylists so that they can send you things you'll love.
Here we go....

Item #1 - Shiva Plaid Mixed Material Tee
Item #2 - Kate Distressed Boyfriend Jean
First, let's talk about the top. If I'm being totally honest, I wasn't super thrilled about the pattern right out of the box. Plaid isn't my favorite, and I probably wouldn't buy anything with this pattern if I was walking around the store. That said, though, I liked this top a lot better after wearing it for a bit. The top fits really well and it's really comfortable, too. Chances are I'll send this one back, but I'll take another day or so to think on it.

The jeans, you might recognize these from my August fix! I ended up sending them back because they were too big in the waist. So they sent me the size down this time, and honestly, they still feel a little big in the waist. I mean, I have lost weight and inches over the past month or two but I don't feel like it was THAT much of a difference. I kinda feel like this size should fit better. And also, I after wearing them around for 30 minutes or so, they stretched out a little so these will end up looking even bigger than they do in these photos (which really aren't a good indicator since you can't see them around the waist) I'm torn because I really love these pants, but now I'm wondering if I should go down even another size!??

Item #3 - Henry Birds on Branch Infinity Scarf
I really like the colors and the pattern on this scarf, so I could see myself wearing it for sure! I always have a really hard time committing to scarves for some reason, though. Anyone else have that issue?? lol
Item #4 - Rowson Colorblock Striped Sweater
I really really wanted to love this. I mean, I like it. But I don't LOVE it. You know? I can't deny that it's super comfy and I would probably wear it a lot, though. So there's that. Just not sure about the colors of this. I think I'd like it more if they were pastels. Maybe I'm just being too picky.
Item #5 - Xander Short Sleeve Woven Back Sweatshirt
Well this is lovely, isn't it? I really like the contrast of materials with this top, and the colors are awesome. Can never go wrong with grey, and the pastel pink is very pretty. 99% positive I'm keeping this baby. Smooches for Angela (my stylist) for this one! ;-)

And that's it for September's Stitch Fix!! What do you think? What should I keep and what should I send back??

I love love love the colorblock sweater! Be bold!

I have the complete opposite problem with scarves--I try to commit to all of them all of the time! :) I love the top in the last picture--it looks fantastic with your skin tone and hair. If you love the jeans, see if you can get them in a smaller size. The number on the jeans doesn't matter--just the fit!

Brandi Hayden said...

Cute clothes!

Courtney said...

I think every single item you got is great! But I definitely think you still need to size down in the jeans. I can see what you're saying.

Sami Seibert said...

LOVE the grey shirt!!!! I'm the same way with scarves. So hard to pick one that you will wear more than twice.

Carly Fisher said...

Love the scarf! I would wear the heck out of it. You definitely need a smaller size in the jeans, and I'm not crazy about the plaid either :)

Jordan said...

Love the color block sweater, the scarf & the last shirt!! I'd definitely size down again on the jeans. Even if they're a little snug you're exercising still so they'll feel great in no time!

spiffykerms said...

Those last two items are totally my style and if they were avail in stores - I'd buy it right now.

Camille Millecam Whiting said...

I love the gray shirt! I'm a big fan of the scarf too!

Lindsay Living Vegan said...

Those are some great pieces!! I've been seeing stitch fix everywhere!

Hayley! said...

I love the sweater, but would probably be ready to give up on those jeans, haha! If you absolutely adore them, you should definitely ask for another size down! It just stinks that those will take up the spot of another item!!

Mandy! You look great! I love the scarf! Super cute outfit on you! And the striped shirt with pink up top! Love them!

Chrissy Jordan said...

I have a scarf "thing" I want to love them... but I just can't pull them off. I used them when necessary in WA, but now that we're in FL I have a closet full of scarves that need to be rehomed.
And that pink and grey top is the only thing I would have kept, love it.

Julianne Jayson said...

love the scarf and tee! I am going to check them out.

Carly said...

That plaid top is actually my favorite! I love plaid, though. I'm loving that scarf, too!

Laura Railing said...

I love the color block sweater! I say go for it! ;) it looks really pretty! Love the scarf too. It'd be hard to pick just a few things. I'd have to totally want to keep something.

Jessica Doll @ Team Wiking said...

The patterns on those are nice, you look really happy with them.

happy_wife said...

You know why I like the last shirt so much? I would never by a chiffon shirt because my little boys would destroy it in a second.....BUT with the chiffon detailing on the BACK and the casual t-shirt front is just genius! I also like the scarf and jeans; super cute!

Brendy Beauty said...

I love love love the plaid. i can not put my finger on why, I just have to say that I do!

Ecuador InMyEyes said...

I really love the infinity scarve! That one is a true keeper!

Gretchen said...

LOVE the last shirt and yep, go down one more size on the jeans. The stretched out after an hour thing is soooo annoying :/

Fiona Naughton said...

I love the scarf and the tee with the pale pink and grey, my favourite colours :)

Lynette Brown said...

I've never heard of them, it's amazing how power able a personal note can be in business, love the last top

JMS said...

The scarf is great & I agree with everyone else on the jeans- too big. I'd try for a smaller size or take them to the tailor. I'm not a fan of the color block sweater- it doesn't seem to fit your shape well.

Lindsey Paris said...

Scarf and the pink/gray are keepers. Try again for the pants!

Katie said...

I love the T shirt.

I think I'm not sure about the colour of the pink on the jumper by your face. cooler colours definitely suit you more. As for the jeans I'd definitely get a size smaller depending on where they sit on your waist/hips!

Brooke @ Youre in Brookelynn said...

I've always wanted to try stitch fix! I absolutely love that grey and pink top :)

Beth Mayberry said...

Maryann said...

You look great in all of them! I think my favorite is the grey.

Amanda Jillian B said...

I love them, can I have them lol

heckyeshotmess said...

Love the scarf & the blocked colored sweater!

Kenzie @ Life According to Kenz said...

I don't have an issue committing to scarves simply because I just feel the need to have them all. Ha! You look amazing Mandy! That last top is so "you!"

Aaron and Megan said...

Hi Mandy- I have done Stitch Fix for about 5 months now. What has your experience been about getting a different size of the same item? I just got my box today and had a pair of red skinny jeans, but they are too small. (My fault, because I had the wrong size in my profile. I'm still figuring out my size these days.) Does Stitch Fix send you a different size for the same Fix? Or will I have to wait until my next box?
Thanks!
Megan

I have that sweater and love it, but it is has gray stripes and mint green top. Maybe request that version if they still have it? It is very comfortable.
