Stitch Fix #17 - November 2016

I took a little break from Stitch Fix, mainly because I was loving too many items!  I would tell myself that I was only going to keep one item and then end up liking the whole box!  So after a couple months off, I figured it was time for some new clothes!  Here's the note I sent to my stylist:

Same stylist (Anne) please! I need a top for a New Years Party that is indoor/outdoor. I also need a tunic or top that is long in the back to go with olive leggings.

I love that Anne really listens to my requests and tries to deliver.  If you have no idea what Stitch Fix is all about, here's my quick summary:

Stitch Fix is a service that will send you five articles of clothing (or purses, scarves, jewelry, and now shoes) picked by a stylist at whatever interval you choose based on a style profile you fill out about yourself.  You pay a $20 styling fee for each box, but that money goes toward anything you keep.  So as long as at least one item works for you, there's nothing to lose.  And if you keep all five items, you get a 25% discount.

You don't have to sign up for a certain time period between fixes.  You could try it one time and never get another fix or get another one 2 years later!  There's no cost commitment until you schedule a fix.  When the box ships, that's when you are charged the $20 styling fee.

You can create a Pinterest board dedicated to your style and put the link in your style profile so that your stylist can see what items you like and why.  I love when I receive something I actually pinned or something very similar to a pin on my board!

And here is what I received in my 17th shipment:

(1) Erica Taylor Karen Printed Straight Leg Pant $88

Anne suggested I pair these pants with a shirt and jacket (2 & 3) from this fix for a New Years outfit.  Here is everything put together:

I also tried pairing the pants with my RD Style Cold Shoulder Sweater from Fix #12.

I like the pants but not sure if I like them enough to keep them.  They have a comfy waistband and no zippers or pockets.

(2) Market & Spruce Galapagos Cross Bar Dolman Knit Top $54

I wasn't sure I liked the cross bar on the back of this shirt, but it has kind of grown on me.

 I tried it with my Just Black Skinny Jeans from Fix #7.  I like the purple color and the comfort of the shirt. 
My daughter wanted to join in the fun, so she jumped into the photo shoot.  At least it makes a cute pic!  I am trying hard to find a top to go with my Lularoe leggings that I bought.  The shirt has to cover my rear since that is my least favorite part to show off!  None of the pictures of the back of the dolman top were very flattering, so I'm still unsure about this top.

(3) Edyson Maisha Ponte and Faux Leather Jacket $88

My daughter is in love with this jacket.  She tried it on, told me to keep it, and wants to try it on again!  It's not something I normally would go for, but I think it actually looks good on me.  I also threw it on over a shirt from this fix (4) and my Gilli Skirt from Fix #4.

(4) 41Hawthorn Colibri Solid Tab Sleeve Blouse $48

Anne suggested I try this blouse with my leggings.  It does cover my rear, but I don't think I like the combo.

I also tried it with my Kut from the Kloth Boyfriend Jeans from Fix #14 and my Crochet Toms from Fix #15

I think I like it better with jeans than the leggings or skirt.

(5) Renee C Laverna V Neck Tunic $48

This top is gorgeous!  I thought it would be perfect with my leggings...until I tried it on.  My hips are way too big for it!!  I thought about trading it for a larger size, but I think that the top part would then be way too big.  Sadly, this one has to go back.

Overall, I'm not sure about this fix.  I think I need some advice from my readers!  Which item(s) do you think I should keep?  This fix arrived a week earlier than I scheduled too, so I have to take pics, write my blog post, and return my unwanted items all during my work week, which is hectic to begin with!

I have until Monday to choose which items to keep and which I will send back.  I fill out a checkout survey to give specific feedback on each item so that my next fix can be even better.  Then I put the rejects in a prepaid envelope and drop it off at the post office.
