After the success of my last Stitch Fix, I decided to get another one. This might sound redundant, but I asked my favorite stylist Nicole to use Princess Kate's outfits as inspiration. I think she nailed it on the head with a few of these pieces. I also asked for outerwear, since it's starting to get chill here!
In case you've never heard of Stitch Fix, it is a clothing subscription service. When you create an account, you answer a ton of questions about your style and your budget for clothes. Once you've completed the quiz and ordered a fix, which costs $20 for the styling fee, your stylist will send you a box of five clothing items, shoes, or accessories! You have three days to decide what you're going to keep/send back, and if you keep everything you get a discount.
Absolutely Jonny Cable Pullover, size XL, $54
As you can see, this sweater was ridiculously huge on me. I keep forgetting to redo my Stitch Fix sizes in my profile. I've lost a little bit of a weight, but apparently it was just enough to put me in a lower size. This cable pullover was divine. It is so soft and cozy, and cables are my favorite knit style. I love knitting cables and wear them. This yarn is gorgeous as well, because it has a tonal distressed look. I decided to keep this, but I exchanged it for a size M.
Skies are Blue Carroll Scallop Detail Top, size XL, $58
Now that I'm looking back on these pictures, I'm kicking myself. This top was also a little too big on me and the fabric was a little thin for fall/winter. The white/blue pattern is gorgeous, and the detailing at the hem adds a special touch. Since I wasn't sure what size to exchange this for, I sent it back. I just wasn't sure if a size M, which is what I was guessing I'd need, would be too small for my bust. Now I wish I'd taken a chance to exchanged it anyways. Ahh, well! This one went back.
RD Style Sorelle Rain Jacket, size XL, $88
I asked for outerwear, and my stylist sent me this super cute rain jacket. I'm not sure how she 'knew,' but I actually need a rain jacket. This black and white polka dot rain jacket fit so well. It cinches at the waist, which makes it look more tailored. The hood had ample room. I decided to send this back because of the price. I think I can find something just as a cute at a more affordable price point. This was sent back.
Look by M Della Tartan Plaid Scarf, $34
First things first, this scarf was incredibly soft. It was also a great size to either scrunch up around my neck or let hang down. These colors would be great for fall/winter and honestly ... nothing says cold weather like plaid. Since I have roughly a million scarves/wraps/shawls, I tend to be very picky about what I add to the collection. Sadly, this was sent back.
RD Style Birchcrest Side Slit Detail Sweater, size XL, $78
Friends. This color is so me. I used to hate the color red, but now I love it. This specific red is my favorite, and I was so sad this sweater didn't work out for me. The sleeves were the right length, the color was perfect, and the raglan yoke is my favorite style of sweater to wear. I think the split sides were a little too out of my comfort zone. I could definitely see myself wearing this around the house, but I'm not one to purchase a $78 sweater just to wear around the house. Maybe it would've grown on me a bit after wearing it for a while, but ultimately I decided to send this back. I'll have to ask Nicole for a similar sweater that is not split down the sides.
And that concludes my November Stitch Fix! I was so happy with the items Nicole selected for me, even though I didn't keep all of them. I'll definitely be making notes for my next fix!
