Stitch Fix Review #12: Transitioning to Fall

It’s been awhile since my last Stitch Fix review! Yes, my last Review was #10 and this one is #12. I had a surprise Fix #11 a month or so ago, but ended up not even trying on the clothes due to budget issues. It happens!

 

Even though I’ve been consumed by all things LuLaRoe, I was eyeing some cute pieces that people were receiving in a Stitch Fix B/S/T board on Facebook and decided to go ahead and schedule a “fall” Fix. I asked my stylist for some fall pieces, and included key words like: vests, boots, plaid, and jewel tones.

Sara, my stylist from previous Fixes, didn’t disappoint in my requested “fall” theme. Her note reads:

Hi Sarah! Can you believe it’s already September? Fall is just around the corner so I’ve sent along pieces to help you get in the pumpkin spice state of mind. I am in love with the Margaret M printed straight leg pants. They might be the perfect plaid pants. Wear them to work with the Daniel Rainn lace detail blouse, statement earrings, and black block heels. For a weekend ready look, pair them with your chambray button up, a statement necklace, and burgundy pointed toe flats. The Erica Taylor printed pants are equally as versatile. Wear them to a meeting with a black silky blouse and open toe booties. For a pulled together casual look, wear them with a white Vneck tee, the Marc New York faux leather and knit moto jacket, layered necklaces, and the DV8 wedge booties. Hello perfection! Cheers! Sara

 

Here’s what I received…

DV8 Glinda Wedge Bootie ($88)

While these booties are a gorgeous blue suede and have a lot of potential, they just aren’t quite my cup of tea. Despite Sara’s note on how to style the booties, I was at a loss at where to begin. I know that I wouldn’t reach for them for this reason, so back they went. Verdict: Returned

 

Erica Taylor Karen Printed Straight Leg Pant ($88)

These pants are made from a stretchy material and were super comfortable, but a little fancy for my day-to-day. The color was perfect for fall, but I wasn’t crazy about the length or the fit. Verdict: Returned

 

Marc New York Kayseri Faux Leather and Knit Moto Jacket ($88)

I actually received a faux leather jacket from Stitch Fix last year, and I LOVE it. This one was a comfortable material, but the cut was a little overwhelming on my frame, and not really my style. Verdict: Returned

 

Daniel Rainn Stegen Lace Detail Blouse ($68)

When I pulled this blouse out of the box, I loved the color. Sara delivered on my “jewel tone” request. I also love the brand; I discovered ‘Daniel Rainn’ through Stitch Fix, and have since found a lot of it at stores like TJ Maxx and Marshall’s. This was my favorite piece from this Fix, but it fit me a little smaller than I prefer. I decided I didn’t love it though, so it wasn’t worth requesting a size exchange. Verdict: Returned

 

Margaret M Sylvie Printed Straight Leg Pant ($98)

I was a little surprised to see plaid pants instead of a plaid button down shirt, but I tried to keep an open mind. Once I got them on? Very confused. I’ve looked and looked, but nowhere are the pants marked as “cropped” or “ankle” or “short” – nothing of that nature. You guys, these are like capris on me… and I don’t think they’re supposed to be. I already wasn’t crazy about the print, but the length is a little ridiculous! Verdict: Returned

 

Final Thoughts

Overall, I was excited to receive my Fix – especially since it had been so long – and I think Sara did a good job delivering on a “fall” themed Fix. Even though I decided not to keep anything, I look forward to requesting a new Fix in the future!

What did you think? What are some fall pieces you’re loving right now?

    I agreed with you on everything except the wine colored pants….I thought those were adorable and you rocked them!

    • Thank you, Jenny! I liked them more after I saw pictures, but they were still a little too fancy for anything that I do. I would have also needed a size exchange! Thanks for reading 🙂

    • amylu

      I agree. Those pants were SUPER flattering. Love them.

      Agree about the cut of the jacket on your frame. It’s too long.

      The fact that the print doesn’t match up on the side seam of the black/white pants is super distracting to me. For $100, I’d hope for more attention to detail. Guess that’s why I stick to inexpensive, solid colored bottoms!

  • That jacket was great! But since you already had one made sense not to keep!

    • It was a very well-made jacket, Lacey! I just didn’t have a need for it right now. Thanks for stopping by!

  • I love the last trousers, though it’d nice that you can get all the clothes try them on and still return them <3
