Stitch Fix #11 + $100 GIVEAWAY

My 11th box from Stitch Fix arrived earlier this week. I seriously cannot believe I have received 11 shipments from the fabulous online personal styling service. Each fix is always a delight and makes me just a little more stylish than I was before the box arrived at my door. For a mere $20, my personal stylist checked out my online style profile and skimmed my fashion Pinterest board, then hand-picked 5 garments just for me. As usual, this week’s stack of clothing was pure eye candy.

Stitch Fix is an online personal styling service for women. I love the clothing that came in this blogger's fix!

 

I was feeling pretty casual when I first dug into my fix so I immediately tried on the Memphis Lace Overlay Knit Shirt from Market and Spruce. I love a good cotton t-shirt and this one was dressed up with lace so I could be comfortable AND fancy. I have been patiently waiting and hoping for a t-shirt style to arrive in a fix. This was the answer to all of those prayers.

I paired the lace knit top with my favorite necklace from Old Navy (stylish doesn’t always have to be expensive) and my rose gold and ceramic Fossil watch. I love the soft feminine look of this whole outfit.

The Malin Bootcut jeans from Kensie (which were included in my 9th fix) paired well with this top to create a perfect balance of feminine and laid back.

Next up was a Giorgio Cowl Neck Long Sleeve Thermal Top from Splendid. This is not your average thermal top. It had a super-soft cotton cowl neck and the same fabric was used on the sleeves.

Sometimes a girl just wants to dress down. Especially on those cold, damp days of fall. This will be the perfect top to keep me warm, cozy and a little stylish as temperatures dip in the midwest.

I couldn’t resist taking a few photos so you could better see the softness of the sleeves and the cowl neck. This was SUCH a cozy thermal top!

At first, I wasn’t quite sure what to think of this dress. The print is not something I would typically wear but Stitch Fix encourages their customers to try on EVERY piece included in the fix.

Oh my word, what a great surprise! I was so happy that I tried it on. The fabric was relatively lightweight but it had structure to it. The pleat details gave the dress an interesting architectural look. I could not believe how flatter in the dress was once I put it on. It was very comfortable too!

I dug into my closet, set the wedges aside, and added black tights and my simple black riding boots to the look.I also added a tan cardigan for an extra layer. The finished look was absolutely perfect for the chilly fall days and even to wear in the winter!

I tried on the blog with my favorite pair of Kensie skinny jeans (also from Stitch Fix) and I still wasn’t quite sure how I felt about this item. It sort of reminded me of hospital scrubs.

In an effort to change the look from an ensemble from the medical profession to one from the education profession, I added a charteuse cardigan and a bright pink scarf.

The pink scarf and chartreuse 3/4 sleeve cardigan certainly helped to transform the look and feel of the abstract print blouse. It looked great with my dark skinny jeans and black flats.

I changed up the look one more time by adding a teal cardigan and a black and silver scarf. It was another great look!

The final item in my fix was a Filbert 3/4 Sleeve Popover Blouse from 41Hawthorn. The color was listed as burgundy, but it was more of a rich red than traditional burgundy color.

For this blouse, I kept things simple and paired it with a solid black tank and black pants. I love the simplicity of this professional outfit. It is something I can easily imagine myself wearing during parent-teacher conferences this fall.

How Much Did Each Item Cost?

Kinder Craze readers always want to know the price of each item that has been included in my fix. Here is the breakdown:

Memphis Lace Overlay Knit Shirt from Market and Spruce, $58
Giorgio Cowl Neck Long Sleeve Thermal from Splendid, $84
Devin Geo Print Pleat Detail Dress from Ymi, $134
Rye Abstract Print Solid Trim Blouse from Èclair, $58
Filbert 3/4 Sleeve Popover Blouse from 41Hawthorn, $58

 

Save 25% with the Buy All Discount

The best part of Stitch Fix is that customers can save 25% on their entire order if they choose to purchase every item in their fix. I wasn’t crazy about the black and white abstract print blouse, but with 25% savings on EVERYTHING, it is actually cheaper for me to keep the entire fix than it is to send one item back. I’ll show you what I mean. Priced individually, my fix added up to $392 and if I had returned the blouse but kept everything else my price would have been $334 ($392-58). But by keeping the blouse and saving 25% for earning the buy-all discount, the price of my shipment came to $294. That’s a savings of $40 and I got to keep the blouse! Stitch Fix also deducts their $20 styling fee from your total if you choose to purchase any of the items. When you factor in the extra savings, I had the potential to save a total of $118 for purchasing every item in my fix. That’s a great deal!

  1. Just starting my own blog and would love to link my fixes with you gals. I always love your outfits and pin them for my stylist. My favorite this time is the thermal cowl neck shirt.

  2. I get my first fix in just 7 days!!! SO excited! Love seeing all of your fixes. I LOVE the dress and the red blouse. 🙂

    1. Hi Katy,
      Those jeans are from See Thru Soul. I bought them a few years ago at Nordstrom. It’s sort of an obscure brand but I love how comfy those jeans are to wear.

  3. I received the same grey lace top in my fix, too! Also got the patterned top from your previous fix (which I requested after seeing it in your post). Everything looks great on you!

  4. I found your site because one of my upcoming Stitch Fix items is the first blouse on your page (yes, I cheat, I must google them before the box arrives 😉 This is my 6th Fix and I’ve been up & down with some of my boxes (mostly up), but looking at your page, I CLEARLY need to work on styling. The transformation of the shirt you were on the fence about was fantastic with the bright cardigans & scarf. The way you restyled the dress with boots and the cardigan was my favorite and looks really great. Your site has inspired me to dig into my closet and create some looks. I’m glad you kept it all, this box was excellent, you look great!

  5. Love the clothes you received!! And you do an awesome job styling them. Can I ask who your stylist is? I just got my first fix. I’m only keeping one item but I’ve heard they get better as they figure you out. Can’t wait for my next one!!

  6. You may be a wonderful Kindergarten teacher, but you have other talents. I’m watching your Stitch Fix entries and find that you are able to pull something out of the box that you (or any of us) might dislike immediately (think the hospital top), dress it up differently, and the look is fabulous. You might consider a fashion consulting side business.

    1. You are so sweet Maggie! It’s true… I have too many passions for one person to balance. I already have a plan B, plan C, and plan D for other occupations if teaching doesn’t work out. Perhaps fashion consulting should become my plan E!

  7. I love the outfits you are making out of one piece. I awas wondering what sizes you were wearing in shirts? As a taller model they all seem to have a nice length. I typically wear a M, but have been receiving shirts that are very boxy, big and short. I really like the red shirt and purple cowl neck. Was wondering if going down to a small would be better? I have tried to tell the stylist that I like fitted and longer…hasn’t worked out yet. Any suggestions?

    1. HI Susan!
      When I started receiving my fixes I was a size Medium for tops and they were often too boxy on me as well. I lost a few pounds and changed my profile to size Small. They fit much better! I recommend requesting some small blouses, even if your regular casual tops are still a size medium. since they are usually so boxy.

  8. Your styling of the rye print blouse was amazing! It turned a piece I wouldn’t have given a second look to into a piece I want to have in my closet!
