Unboxing // October 2015 Stitch Fix review


Another month, another Stitch Fix review...  

This month marks my 18th Stitch Fix box (you can sign up here if you're interested). Earlier this year when I had some issues with Stitch Fix they said they'd assign the same stylist to me. Last month, I got a different stylist since my regular girl was out, which is fine. But this month I got a completely different stylist again so I wonder if this will be a regular thing.

Since I am moving across the country in the next few weeks, I didn't keep any items in this box. Though in all honesty, the didn't seem quite my style either.

The pieces ranged from $28 to $98 each for a total of $370. After the $20 styling fee and 25% discount, the whole box could be purchased for $257.50.

I'm not huge on blouses. For me, they're just a fact of life and I need them for work. 


This one was nice and flowy, and I liked the navy color, but I just wasn't crazy about the pattern.

I am 100% against pull up pants! Pants should have a clasp, or button, or zipper or something! But boy did these pants give me a run for my money...


They might be the comfiest and most stylish pair of pull up dress pants I've seen. I didn't keep them -- because again, I'm not for pull up pants -- but I was tempted.

Bay to Baubles Tahiti Half Circle Layer Necklace $28| STATUS: Sent Back

Out of all the pieces, this was the one I most considered keeping. 


I love silver jewelry and I like the layered look -- I just have a hard time doing it myself. 

So this piece would have been an easy way to keep a layered look in one step.

The necklace was a good length too -- not too short and not too long.

London Times Uma Printed Dress $98| STATUS: Sent Back

I liked the print and the color of this dress since I don't think I own this particular salmon/peachy color.

The material was pretty thin and flimsy though I felt for a $98 dress. I've purchases dresses at Target for one third of the price that have more material to them.

It also appeared to wrinkle pretty easily. You can see a few wrinkles starting  on the skirt and all I did was unfold it, put it on, and walk 10 feet out onto my porch.

Ivy + Blu Mario Dress $98 | STATUS: Sent Back

This was another piece I considered keeping, but ended up passing on.


Price and moving aside, there were a few issues with the dress. First was the fit.

Typically I wear A-line dresses because I'm pear shaped (wider on bottom than on top) and that tends to be a happy medium for my small bust and larger hips. 

Usually I still have extra space on top, but not with this dress. It was too tight across my bust, but fit my hips and waist fine.

Also, like the London Times one above, for a $98 dress it really wasn't the nicest material.
So, that was my 18th box! Tell me what you think about Stitch Fix in the comments below. If you're interested in Stitch Fix, you can sign up here!
