Stitch Fix #16 - September 2016

I cannot believe it is still 90 degrees in September!  I'm glad I didn't order a fall fix because it would be awful to take pictures outside!   We have exactly 9 days until we are in Disney World.  We have a couple of nights out while we are there, so I thought Stitch Fix would be the way to go!  Here's the note I sent to my stylist:

Same stylist (Anne) please! Going to Disney at the end of the month. Would love some lightweight dresses for a date night and my daughter's birthday at the castle!

Here's a quick rundown on how the service works:

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 Anne sent in my 16th Fix:

(1) Hailey 23 Kerrigan 2fer Knit Dress $78

The top of this dress looks a lot like my maxi dress from Fix #15.  But as I first tried everything on yesterday, it was the one item that screamed keeper.  My stylist recommended a dainty necklace to wear with the dress on our date night in Disney. 

(2) Pixley Jacobsen Textured Knit Dress $68

Anne recommended this dress for my daughter's birthday dinner.  She suggested a red skinny belt to give it a Minnie Mouse vibe.  I only have a black skinny belt, but I threw on a red necklace to see what it looked like.  I don't like the waistline of this dress--it seems to poof out too much. It's also a tiny bit shorter than I would like.

(3) Market & Spruce Austin Polka Dot & Striped Mixed Material Shirt $44

I like the contrasting patterns of this shirt, especially the pocket.  Unfortunately, when I tried it on, the back is MUCH longer than the front and it almost completely covered my shorts.  Anne suggested the Pistola shorts from Fix #15.  This top is also one of the most inexpensive clothing items I've received, but I think it's going back.

 (4) Loveappella Keetin Contrast Shoulder Knit Top $44

I think Anne just sent me this top because it's very "me."  She didn't comment on how to style it at all, so I paired it with my Dear John shorts from Fix #3 and my boyfriend jeans from Fix #14.  I love the coral color and am always looking for cute tanks!

(5) Street Level Talula Backpack $68

Can I just start by saying, I know backpacks are making a comeback, but they are not my thing.  I do like the brown that would go with everything, but this is so not my style, and definitely not worth the price (for me at least)!  Anne had suggested it for hands-free at Disney, but I think my Osprey will work just fine!

So, I'm thinking about only keeping (1) and (4).  I have been keeping a lot lately, so I'm trying to spread my fixes out more and only keep what I love or what makes more sense financially.  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.
