Stitch Fix Review – Winter Recap
Hey there! Long time, no girly clothes chat, right? I’ve been super busy with the holidays and didn’t have time to take pics or write a blog post of my December Fix, so this Stitch Fix review kind of combines 2 fixes into 1 – December and Janurary.
Usually when I get around to writing these Stitch Fix reviews, I already know exactly what I’m keeping and what I’m sending back. But I totally need your help this time. I don’t know what to keep and what to send back – I’m so torn!
I actually thought I had decided which items I wanted to keep and which to send back. But then I re-tried them all on again. This time I added my accessories that I would probably wear with the outfits. Some of those accessories really brought the outfits to life! And what I thought I wanted to send back, now looks really good with the added accessories. Ugh, girl problems! I hope you’ll stick around and tell me what you think.
I also want to tell you that I’m not going to be getting a Fix for a couple of months so if you don’t see a review from me, that’s why. Nothing bad happened – I still adore this service and I think my stylist especially nailed these last 2 Fixes. But if you’ve read my other Stitch Fix reviews, you know that I totally simplified and got rid of over 95% of my clothes at the beginning of the summer. Going forward, I am only buying pieces that are a 10 out of 10 (perfect!) for me. That means I have far less clothes, but the few pieces I do have make me feel 100% fabulous. Currently, I’m very happy with my winter wardrobe (all 10’s – woo!!!) and I don’t need anything else until spring.
And if you’re wondering what Stitch Fix is….
If you aren’t familiar with Stitch Fix yet, let me give you a super quick rundown. You get matched with your own personal stylist who handpicks a “Fix” for you of 5 clothing items (and accessories if you wish) reflecting your tastes, budget and lifestyle. An adorable box with your Fix shows up at your doorstep. You keep only what you want and send the rest back in a postage paid envelope. And yes, it’s very affordable – I wouldn’t be able to do it if it wasn’t. You can get a Fix as often or as little as you want. No commitments!

Here’s my Stitch Fix pieces this month!
You’ll notice my January Fix is loaded with polka dots! I LOVE polka dots so I was especially excited to see all the different polka dot options for me. I only want to keep 1 polka dot shirt out of the 3, though. The very best one. The problem is, I really love them all! This is where I need your help. Which one do you think I should keep?
Pixley Bixby Dot Print 3/4 Tab Sleeve Blouse
I saw this shirt on Pinterest and fell in love with it. I pinned it and and lo and behold, my stylist checked my Pinterest board and sent it to me (you can follow my fashion Pinterest board HERE). I was so excited! When I first tried it on, it was a 9, not a 10 for me, though. I loved everything about it, except the cuffs. They felt too big, loose and just a little awkward on me.
But then I tried it on for a 2nd time, loaded with the accessories I would wear and paired it with the white denim from my August Fix as suggested by my stylist. I realized that I really do love this shirt and this outfit is totally me and my style. I think I might regret sending it back. What should I do?
VERDICT: Undecided – help me decide!
Pomelo Missy Polka Dot Tab-Sleeve Blouse
Polka dot shirt #2! So cute, right?! I love this mint color. Mint + Polka dots = Swoon 🙂
When I first tried this shirt on, I thought I had made up my mind that this was the polka dot shirt that was going back. I thought that I liked the other 2 polka dot shirts just a tad bit better.
Then I re-tried it on, but this time, I styled it as my stylist suggested – with my white denim from my August Fix and with bright pink accessories. And wow, what a difference! Those 2 things totally changed the whole look of the shirt and I really, really love this. Again, this outfit totally screams me and my style. And now, with the pink accessories and white denim, it’s a total 10 for me. So what do I do?!
VERDICT: Undecided – help me decide!
Market and Spruce Tracy Dot Print Cross Back Knit Top
As if I wasn’t undecided enough, here’s polka dot shirt #3 in navy blue! Again, I think this is so adorable. I especially love the cross back detail and the fun, slightly puffy sleeves. Because it’s more of a casual shirt, it’s the most comfortable out of all the polka dot shirts. I feel like it’s also the most versatile – I could easily dress it up or down. Plus I could have a lot of fun accessorizing it with any of my favorite colors – yellow, mint, pink, coral, and red.
The back of my hair is a hot mess (curly hair probs), but I wanted to show you the cute cross back detail that I really like:
For all the reasons stated above, I thought I had picked this polka dot shirt as the winner. But now, with all the other shirts being so cute with the added accessories, I love them all and am totally undecided. If you were me, which one would you keep?
VERDICT: Undecided – help me decide!
Olive & Oak Tiffany Textured Crew Neck Sweater
I was glad to see such a nice staple piece in my Fix. This sweater fits perfectly, is a great quality and a piece that I need for Winter. My stylist told me to pair it with my polka dot swing skirt from my October Fix for a wintery look. She also said it would look adorable with my light blue chinos from my November Fix. I LOVE that she remembers what I bought from my previous Fix’s and sends coordinating items. Isn’t that awesome?
Since I need a versatile piece like this for winter, I think keeping the sweater is a no brainer.
Collective Concepts Janice Graphic Print Blouse
This top is one of the reasons I love Stitch Fix. I never would have given this the time of day if I saw it on a rack. But my stylist said it would be perfect for me. She called the pattern “organized chaos, but something about it just works.” I couldn’t stop laughing at that because it sounded like she was describing my life 🙂
The first time I tried this top on, I knew it was a keeper. I love how unique it is – I have nothing in my closet like it. Coming from a gal who only wore solid colors before Stitch Fix, I am loving all the fun patterns in my closet now thanks to my stylist.
I didn’t have time to take pictures of my whole December Fix before the deadline to send the items back. I wish I would have just snapped a pic of all the clothes with my iPhone so you could see all the pieces, but I didn’t think about it at the time. The whole December Fix was really cute and I ended up keeping 2 of the 5 items – a mint cardi and a beautiful blue lace overlay top. I adore them both. Here they are:
TCEC Donelle V-Neck Buttom Up Cardigan
I’ve practically lived in this cardigan since the day I got it. It’s ridiculously comfy and it’s in my all-time favorite color to wear. I even wore it for my family Christmas pic. My stylist knows I’m such a sucker for this color and she hit the nail on the head with this cozy cardi.
In this pic, it’s paired with the Janice Graphic Print Blouse from the January Fix, as suggested by my stylist. I think that’s such a flattering combination and one I wouldn’t have thought of myself. I am also wearing my favorite dark wash skinny jeans from my November Fix.
Brixon Ivy Roselin Lace Overlay Blouse
Isn’t this top so pretty? I fell in love with everything about it as soon as I saw it. I especially love the bright blue paired with mint. It’s really cute with a pencil skirt and also my white denim from my August Fix.
So there you have it! Between the last few Fix’s, I think I got some amazing pieces for the Winter season. Now I just need your help deciding which polka dot top to keep. Or do you think I should I say screw it and get them all?! They are all different enough, right? 😉 I don’t think I need 3 polka dot tops and really would like to just pick one, though.
I always enjoy doing these girly chats since I still don’t have many girl friends here. I’d love it if you would leave me your opinion in the comments. Thank you!!! <3
**UPDATE — I ended up keeping the 3rd polka dot shirt based on your comments here and also from the poll on my Facebook page – it was hands down the clear winner. Thank you so much for all your comments and opinions – I loved reading each of them and they really helped me make the decision much easier 🙂
