There’s nothing quite like the thrill of seeing a brand new Stitch Fix shipment arrive at the door. My own fix arrived this week and it was more exciting than usual because I had just downloaded the new Stitch Fix iPhone app. I could track my fix directly within the app, check out online, schedule my next fix and even upload a selfie for my stylist to see as she plans my next fix. It was a pretty amazing week! My fix was as stylish as ever and I can’t wait to show you what arrived this month.
This post contains affiliate links, including my Stitch Fix referral link. I receive a small commission each time someone makes a purchase through one of my links or signs up for their very first fix, which helps to support the blog.
I had some fun sharing a sneak peek at my fix on Periscope this week when it first arrived. I have been trying to do this each time I receive a new fix and my viewers love getting an early peek at what’s inside. If you’re new to Periscope, you can download the app and find me @kindercraze to see my videos. They only stay live on the site for 24 hours, but I was able to upload my latest video to YouTube so you can watch it without worrying about the video expiring!
Fierro Elbow Patch Crew Neck Sweater
I immediately reached for the Fierro Elbow Patch Crew Neck Sweater from Brixon Ivy ($58). My stylist, Layla, had me at “elbow patch.” I adore feminine details and soft colors. I am already dreading the long Michigan winter when I have to say goodbye to some of my favorite flowy feminine pieces until the warm weather returns. I loved this sweater because it was a soft gray color and because of the lace accents on the elbow patches. What’s more sophisticatedly feminine than lace elbow patches?
I’m not going to go on and on about the elbow patches. I think the elegance speaks fairly well for itself!
This was a fun ensemble to accessorize. I added a long silver necklace that I purchased at Old Navy a few years ago, a basic pair of pearl earrings and my Fossil watch (similar here).
I also added the bracelet I wore for my wedding (I am always looking for an excuse to wear any of my wedding jewelry and the bracelet has proven to be very versatile. As a final touch, I wore the White Elisa Kendra Scott necklace that came in my Rocksbox. You can read more about Rocksbox in this blog post and how you can try the jewelry service FREE for one month.
This sweater looked great with the Sophia skinny jeans from Kensie that came in my 4th fix.
Of course I also added my brown riding boots. The boots are from Enzo Angiolini and I purchased them at Nordstrom a few years ago. I did a little research and they currently sell a similar pair on Amazon.
I also styled this sweater with a lightweight eyelet sleeveless collared button down. The sweater is fairly lightweight and I didn’t want to add to much bulk so this staple from my summer wardrobe allowed me to layer the look while keeping a smooth silhouette.
Sarah Quilted Jacket with Faux Fur Collar Lining
The second item included in my fix was the Sarah Quilted Jacket with Faux Fur Collar Lining from Coffeeshop ($78). My stylist, Layla, knows all about my outerwear addiction, so of course she sent another coat! This quilted jacket is a very similar style to the green coat she sent in my last fix and the burgundy puffer jacket that came in my 15th fix (I purchased both of them), and I couldn’t wait to try this one on as well.
This coat is a definite keeper. I guess I’ll have to make some room in my coat closet.
Amherst Multi-Zip Tote
The third item included in my Stitch Fix shipment was a red Amherst Multi-Zip Tote from Urban Expressions ($68). I rarely request specific items that I see in other people’s fixes because I love surprises from my stylist, but, after seeing a similar red purse in a different Stitch Fix review, I begged my stylist to please send one my way. The Amherst bag was bigger than I expected, but wow, is it fantastic!
I attended a teaching conference on Thursday and Friday this week and the tote served as the perfect purse for those days. It was large enough to hold my wallet, planner, sunglasses, water bottle, handouts and even a small laptop with plenty of room to spare. I also received tons of compliments on my new purse!
Can we just take a moment to admire how perfectly casual and chic this ensemble is? I love the sweater, the bag, and the jacket! Throw in the jeans and I was dressed from head to toe in Stitch Fix. This, my friends, is why I hardly ever shop in a traditional store. It’s much easier to have perfect-fitting pieces that are just my style delivered directly to my door.

I still have two more items to show you from this month’s fix and I’m also giving away a $20 Stitch Fix gift card. Click the image below to head over to page 2 of this post. I promise you won’t regret it!
Another great fix Maria! Already pinned that bag 🙂
I have been looking forward to this post since your last “Stitch Fix” post! Love all the items you received, and the great way you styled everything!
Totally LOVE that jacket!! I love your styling and crossing my fingers for the giveaway ??
I love the bag and pinned 🙂
Nice choices. I have to tell you that I subscribe to your blog because of your Stitch Fix posts. You do a tremendously good job. Thanks for the blog tips as well. I read your Most recent post on that. I just started a Stitch Fix page on my blog (with my 15th fix) and often take your advice.
Thank you for your beautiful posts. They have been most helpful in researching StitchFix!
I got that same sweater with the elbow lace on Thursday. I knew the second I tried it on that it was a keeper.
Are you going to do a Stitch Fix link up again? Those were so fun- we get to see more posts. Not that yours aren’t my favorite.
Hi Sarah and YES! I plan to host a link up every time I post a new fix at Crazy Together. The next link up will be in mid-November! Hosting it on my lifestyle blog seems to be a better fit than my teaching blog 🙂
Love that bag! Any chance you could take pictures of the inside of bags and purses when you get them? I’m tempted to ask my stylist to send me some of the bags I’ve seen from your fixes but I’m picky about the inside of my purses. ?
Hey Maria – Just curious, why have you started breaking the Stitch Fix post into 2 separate pages?
I would imagine this is because her posts are very photo heavy – if her audience is using a multitude of platforms (some that are slower than others) it likely will not load, or could lock up, the device of the viewer. Splitting it into two allows a person to view one page, let it load, and finish and move on to the next.
Just speculating. 😉
YES! Alyssa’s speculation is correct. One of my reasons is because my posts are SO long and SO photo heavy that I want the pages to load faster. It’s also good for the blog if people linger and read more than 1 page when they visit. My Stitch Fix content is very appealing to my readers and it’s very motivating to click over to the second page to read more. I don’t have plans to separate all of my posts into multiple pages, but the big ones with lots of content naturally lend themselves to the multi-page format.
First, I love your blog 🙂 As a newlywed-ish (2 years!), it’s great to read!! And I LOVE your SF posts. I’m thinking of requesting the Brixon Ivy Fierro Elbow Patch Crew Neck Sweater, but I was wondering – are the sleeves 3/4 length, or long sleeves? It looks like you may have rolled them up a little, but I wanted to check. Thanks!!
Hi Jana and thank you! To answer your question, they are long sleeves. I just rolled and pushed them up.
I received the Laila Jayde Raglan top in my first ever Fix as well, I loved the lightweight of it and the fabric – but sadly, I too returned it – just didn’t seem like something I would wear often enough to justify the cost!
2nd Fix will be here in a couple days!
I loved this post, you do such a great job with styling all of your items, and your descriptions are great, too! I am new to Stitch Fix, and also new to Pinterest, and I have a question: When they say to update your style board, does that mean I should delete items that I have already received or are out of season? Also, if I really want a specific item, does it help to pin it several times or make sure that it is pinned near the top of the page? Thank you!
Hi Heather! That’s a really good question! I almost never delete any of my pins. I interpret that message to mean that I should ADD a few more updated pins to my board, rather than worrying about deleting them. You could help to clarify your new pins by adding something like “please include a dress like this in my November fix!” so she will know which pins are more recent than others. And yes, if you really want something, I would definitely pin it more than once!
Loved the bag in this fix! I always look forward to your box openings. 🙂
Your last fix made me DESPERATE for that En Creme Potter Button Back sweater – asked for it in my fix – and made the awful mistake of peeking on the app when the fix shipped, and saw it was not enclosed… I hope this does not mean it is discontinued or sold out. Scoured the internet, no luck, AND even sent StitchFix an email asking if it was gone…:(
I don’t usually get excited about clothes! haha.
What kind of camera do you use?
