I received a note from Stitch Fix a while back waiving my styling fee as a "holiday gift" - fine by me! After several fixes I felt like they finally "got" me, but I didn't want to shell out for the styling fee so I figured I'd wait to see if there was a promotion.
The package arrived and I really liked the look of everything, plus my stylist Krista really seemed to have though things through, and I greatly appreciated the fact that she actually put together outfits for everything including skirts, not just skinny jeans.
I was still annoyed by how high the prices were, though... I'm used to shopping sales and secondhand, so new retail prices always shock me! I was hoping to find at least one item to keep, though.
Up first? Market & Spruce Patsy Dress ($58)
Nursing-friendly, I love the mixed stripes, but it was a little too short for me to be comfortable in it.
41Hawthorn Walt Skirt ($68) and 41Hawthorn Queensland Dolman Jersey Top ($48)
I loved this skirt but again, just too short for my taste... The waist hit right around my natural waist and the material was a medium weight - substantial enough, but not thick enough to hide my tummy (which is just never going away, I've realized!).
The shirt though... Well, I love dolman shirts. This is a color I don't have, and I could really use more basic long-sleeved tops.
Market & Spruce Denver Cable Knit Elbow Patch Cardigan ($58)
In theory I love this sweater, but not for me. Chunky knits are my favorite, but they just don't work to slim my figure! The color's actually really nice and it was pretty warm, but just unflattering and frumpy on me.
RD Style Nori Pullover Sweater ($78)
The color of this sweater is beautiful - but like the other sweater, it was just a little too chunky to be flattering on me. The sleeves were too long and I generally didn't have any figure wearing it. Also WAY more expensive than I pay for sweaters!
In the future I'm planning on writing a full Stitch Fix vs. Golden Tote review post, but all in all I think I still prefer Golden Tote - far more affordable ($149 for 6 items vs. $310 for 5, $232.50 if I had bought everything), similar (sometimes superior) quality, and I think my stylist "got" me more with Golden Tote.
