Yes, my title says #15, I am just skipping right over 14. After the disaster that was fix#13, CS set me up with a senior stylist who took a look at my Pinterest board and was excited to style me. My date was set for December 14th, but I got a shipping notice much sooner than that and decided to peek. It was so beyond horrible and had another sweater coming in it even after having discussed that with CS. It turns out that was not my correct box, not styled by the senior stylist, and I was told to just box it right back up and return, so that’s what I did. The correct package arrived Tuesday and I knew it would be a winner just from peeking! Pending fit, I was thinking 5/5. This stylist, Allisha, COMPLETELY got my style and that I wanted casual, comfortable clothes without looking & feeling frumpy!
This Cassadi Contrast Sleeve Raglan Knit Top by Alice Blue ($54) is perfect and right up my alley! I love that it has an asymmetrical hem and flares at the bottom yet still remains fitted enough in the chest, and I LOVE the 3/4 length sleeves! This was on my Pinterest board, so I am glad she was able to take a look there.
In the note Allisha suggested I pair the Kut From the Kloth Jonathan Skinny Corduroy ($48) with the Market & Spruce Arcola Side Binding Knit Top ($48) for a cute, casual look. I had pinned several colors of pants for this winter and have yet to get any and this blue is gorgeous in person! The Market & Spruce top is what I consider a thinner sweater and it’s very lightweight. Perfect for just throwing on with a pair of jeans, but it can easily be dressed up as well.
I am really not a scarf person, but I saw this Octavia Coleman Weave Plaid Infinity Scarf ($34) on someone I knew I had to have it. I LOVE plaid and these bright colors are perfect for chasing away the gray winter blues. Aside from the fact that it’s super soft, it is also thick and warm.
I was so excited about receiving the Loveappella Evie Drawstring Funnel Neck Sweatshirt ($64) that has been on my Pinterest since day ONE that I packed it up for a size exchange before taking any photos in it. I will definitely do a Stitch Fix Saturday post with it as soon as I receive it! I am hoping it comes tomorrow so I can take it with me to New Orleans for the next few days. It is navy and SO soft! I am so happy that Allisha took the time to go through my Pinterest and find items that most resemble my style and what I’m looking for in a fix.
This is the first 5/5 I have gotten in a while, and definitely the first perfect box where I am keeping everything myself instead of selling one or two for the discount. I sent CS an email thanking them for setting my up with Allisha and for all the help they gave me. CS agent Catherine was such a huge help! I asked for Alisha to continue styling for me and even set another fix up to come on Christmas Eve. I was shocked that date was available but I went ahead with it and will open it on Christmas morning!
Stitch Fix is an online personal styling service that will send you 5 pieces in a box. You pay a $20 styling fee up front in order for a stylist to choose pieces for you. Once the box arrives you can try everything on then choose what to keep. There is a 25% discount for keeping all 5 pieces. Before you get started there is a style profile you fill out so your stylist can know your preferences. You can choose to receive no jewelry like I have, or you can leave all the options open and receive clothes, jewelry, and/or an accessory each time. You can set up automatic shipments as frequently as every 2-3 weeks, or you can choose to do manual shipments and tell Stitch Fix when you’d like to receive a box. They also have a referral system where you can receive a $25 credit for every person who signs up through your link and purchases a fix. So really, even if you hate everything in the box, which I highly doubt you will, you’re only out $20. You can ship everything back with a prepaid envelope and choose whether to get another fix next month. If you leave detailed feedback about your items, keep your style profile updated, make a note about any upcoming special occasions or vacations, and link to your Pinterest, you’re bound to have a great fix!
