Unboxing // January 2016 Stitch Fix review


Another month, another Stitch Fix review... But this time it's a whole new year! Welcome to the first Stitch Fix review for 2016.

This month marks my 21st Stitch Fix box (you can sign up here if you're interested). Again, I didn't keep anything in this box because I'm still only working part-time right now so we're trying to keep expenses down.

Even though I didn't keep items, this month, what I really liked about this box was how well the items could mix-and-match together to create different outfits. I came up with at least 10 options using these 5 pieces.

The pieces ranged from $58 to $88 each for a total of $370. After the $20 styling fee and 25% discount, the whole box could be purchased for $257.50.


41Hawthorn Venessa Dress $88
STATUS: Sent Back

If there was one piece I would keep from this box, it would have been this dress. 


I really liked the cut and color, which I actually don't have a lot of teal-ish items in my closet. I also liked the faux leather details on the sleeve and waist.

The cut was kind of in between an A-line and a shift dress, which is something different for me and kind of mixes things up a bit.
Kensie Rebekah Stretch Crepe Blazer $88
STATUS: Sent Back

While I did like this blazer, there is no way I'm ever paying $88 for a jacket. It's just not happening.


That being said, the blazer was a lightweight material so it would be good in the spring, summer and fall. I liked the maroon color and especially liked the polka dot lining, which could peak out with the sleeves cuffed.

It was a good fit and material, but just way too pricey for me.


Alice Blue Boulder Button Down Blouse $58
STATUS: Sent Back

Again, I liked this blouse, but I'd never pay $60 for a shirt that I could easily get at Forever 21 or Target.


Price aside, I liked the colors and pattern of this plaid. I also liked that the sleeve were 3/4 length instead of full length.

It was a lightweight material so it could be worn transitioning from summer to fall, or with a cardigan or blazer (even the one above) over it when it gets colder.
Collective Concepts Lorele Peplum Blouse $58
STATUS: Sent Back

When I first pulled this item out of the box, I really, really liked the pattern and colors (I'm a sucker for classic black and white).

But then I saw it... the dropped waist! Unless you're super tall or have a really long torso, a drop waist is going to do you no favors whatsoever!

I have a really short torso so a drop waist draws a line right across my hips. It's literally drawing attention to the wides part of my body, which is a no-go.



Liverpool Mira Skinny Jean $78
STATUS: Sent Back

Last in the box was a pair of black skinny jeans. 

While I liked them and they felt like they had a lot of good stretch to them, I already own a pair of black skinnies that I like a lot.

There's a closer up picture below so you can kind of see the detailing and stitching. For the most part, they're just a basic pair of skinnies.

So, that was my 21st 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!
