Stitch Fix #3: The Leaves are Changing….

Alright, so before I start in on showing you all the goods from this Stitch Fix, I confess. This is not related to my #write31days them. at all. But, I’m using it as today’s post anyway, so whatever. Writing is writing, right? 🙂 If you have no idea what I’m talking about, click on my #blessed: ordinary days image in the sidebar to see what I’ve been writing about this month!

Now, onto the Fix.

For this month’s box, I requested one pair of skinny pants and the rest shirts. My stylist, Kayla, totally delivered.

Lizzy Colorblock Striped Sweater

I had been pinning a lot of shirts that had 2 different designs on them, so I can see why Kayla picked this one for me. The sweater is super soft (and warm!) and the arms were only a tad bit too long.

Dayna Skinny Jean

Perfect pair of jeans AGAIN! We’re 3 for 3 in the jeans department! I have spent hours and hours of my life looking for jeans that fit me, and never have I found pairs that fit as well as these last 3. It’s amazing that a stylist who doesn’t even know me can use the measurements I gave her and get ones that fit like a glove. This alone makes Stitch Fix 100% worth it to me.

Lodi Crew Neck Blouse

I asked Kayla to send me some petite shirts if she found them, and this is one of them. It fit really well, and while I still have a bit of a plaid hangover from the years 1994-1996, I told Kayla I was ready to experiment with some plaid after seeing my sister-in-law’s way cute stitch fix from earlier this summer. The shirt fit me SO WELL, but, it’s pretty thin, and Wisconsin winter is a-comin’. Sending it back.

Martina Slub Knit Open Cardigan

I have been searching high and low for cardigans that I like. I have a bunch of the shorter cardigans that button up, but I’m looking for open, longer cardigans with no buttons. This black one fits the bill, but I haven’t decided if I’m keeping it or not. It’s long, which I love, and soft, which I also love. But it might just a wee bit too big- the sleeves are super long. I wish it came in petite!

Cotulla Button Back Sweater

Lastly, I had practically begged Kayla to send me something, anything(!), with patches on the elbows. I love, love this style and was so excited that she sent me a warm soft sweater in a great color with the patches AND bonus buttons down the back (I think I have a sweater liked this pinned to my Style board!). Sadly, it’s too big– the patches fall on my forearms. Why, oh why do my arms have to be so short? Sending it back reluctantly.

So that’s it, my friends! I just love how responsive my stylist has been to my requests, and she’s worked really hard to find things that match the styles of the board. Because I’m so short, I’m sure I make her job harder than normal :).

My next box comes in January (I do it 4x per year- one with each changing of the seasons). If you’d like to try Stitch Fix out in the meantime, feel free to use my referral link! 🙂
