I’ve written about Stitch Fix previously by recapping a March 2015 box, August 2015 box, and a recap of 14 previous Stitch Fix boxes. Here’s a look at my latest Stitch Fix box, my December 105 Stitch Fix:
The 19 Cooper red Misla Tie-Neck Blouse has a great cut and fit for me, but I thought the amount of pattern was a bit much for my eyes, and F pitched in his opinion as well when I was trying it on saying he thought it was too busy. I sent it back.

This Pixley blue Tracy Dot Print Cross Back Knit Top is my favorite piece of the December Stitch Fix box. It’s cross back knit is fun as is the sweet drapey cut of this top that is flattering while hiding flaws. It layers beautifully with my cardigans and can go with me to work in the office, or out in the evening. A keeper!
Of all the pieces in my Stitch Box, this Collective Concepts black Vickie Textured Dress was the main disappointment. It was boxy and loose on top for my smaller chest, but snug and form fitting at the bottom half below the waist on my curvy hips.
Although I appreciated how this top had a little snap to close where the material folds (a constant irritant to most wrap dresses for me), since it didn’t fit well it was a no brainer to not keep. For those with less hips than me, I could see the appeal of a little black dress with the texture and feminine details that is still basic enough for any season. With pearls or with a trendy statement necklace, this outfit could be to the office or to a holiday party.
At first glance, a black and white striped sweater like this Market & Spruce Cordelia Striped Boat Neck Sweater seemed like any other striped sweater I can get at many stores. When I tried it on though, I realized how easy, soft and cozy this sweater is, and the boat neck fit is a subtle different from any other sweater from a store. I decided to keep it.
To report a bit on the customer service of Stitch Fix and how amazing it is, I wore this after checking out online what I was going to keep and what I wasn’t (I always add notes to why I liked something or why I didn’t). As I was at work, I noticed there was a loose string on one side by my right almost parallel to my belly button – and upon further examination it was a hole!
When I wrote to Stitch Fix about this on their website, they gave me the option to return the sweater but they also had another one in my size that I could exchange. Since I had already gotten compliments on the sweater I chose to do an exchange, so the within 24 hours I had an email with a free USPS label to shop my current holey sweater back and a new one was on its way to me – and which you see in my photos!
I’ve previously gotten dark red jeans, so when I saw my latest stylist send me these Level 99 burgundy Giovanni Straight Leg Jean I didn’t think it was unique enough since all my other jeans are all blue and I already had a dark red one. I still tried it on, as that’s the promise I made myself since these all are being shipped to the comfort and privacy of my home anyway.
They were a perfect length for my 5’2″ legs which is wonderful since rainy Portland weather often causes lots of puddles that I don’t want to drag pants legs in. But, the tightness of the top also causes a bit of muffin top whenever I sat down so this was a definite no and return. Still, I have to admire that they got me jeans that were a perfect length for my petite height, and the jeans were otherwise stretchy and comfy!
If you have not heard of Stitch Fix before, it’s a service where you can choose your style profiles and then at a predetermined interval that you pick, a stylist will send you 5 items for you to try. You can choose to keep the entire box (and get a 25% discount off the entire price of the box) or just some of them or none of the items. Each box charges a $20 styling fee, but if you buy any item from the box that is credited towards your Stitch Fix purchase.
Each box is hand selected based on what you would like in terms of price, your style, and you can request items such as clothing for a holiday party, for a vacation, for work, for going out, etc. This particular box I was looking for chic, unique details in one of a kind pieces to go with my regular style of jeans or that I can layer with my regular black or grey cardigans.
What do you think of the items I got in my box?
