Stitch Fix #11 - Redemption

It's been six months since my last stitch fix, and if you remember, I was pretty disappointed.  I've always been a fan of Stitch Fix, but routinely only kept one item, possibly two per fix.  This was generally based on budget, but typically I would only be impressed enough with one item to actually warrant paying the price (generally in my opinion, overpriced).   Add in some items that didn't last long term because of quality and I figured I was better off shopping on my own.

After pushing my fix back two or three times,  I finally took the plunge.  I still had a credit to use and figured I could get at the minimum a sweater or blouse to take me into Fall.  In my request form, I asked for another pair of DL1961 skinny jeans.  I love the dark wash pair they sent me, but my distressed pair that I purchased are getting a bit snug and I wanted another pair to wear that might be a bit more comfortable.  I also asked for casual fall sweaters or blouses that were washable and could take me from mom out with two kids to mom out on a date.  Also, no surprise backs - blech.

So imagine my surprise when I actually loved every freaking item.  To be honest, if the jeans were a poor fit, I would have been able to narrow down my selection to maybe two items to keep, but since the denim was $178 and keeping everything with the 25% off discount and my credit it was only a little over $200.  I'm definitely not mad as I needed a little closet refresh and I can already see every item in heavy rotation.

DL1961 - Cherise Skinny Jean $178

These are technically the DL1961 Margaux Instasculpt Ankle Skinny Jean (on sale here).  They are super soft and stretchy and almost the right length.  I always cuff my jeans with booties, so no big deal.  I'm not 100% how I feel about the whiskering, is that back??, but I assumed it probably was and with that and the lighter shade they are different my other pairs.

Paradigm - Vina Henley Top $64

This top is totally my style - navy, buffalo check, casual button front blouse.  It has cute embroidery on the shoulders and three buttons down the front.  It's really soft, and would look cute with a pair of boots.  Easy pick, although I think it should have been priced in the $48 range.

Daniel Rainn - Antona Crochet Detail Blouse $64

Another cute navy top, this time cap sleeved, which I'm sure will be more wearable living in the south.  It has nice crochet detailing down the sides of the button placket, across the front and back yoke.  I actually wore this top to dinner with my girlfriends on Saturday night, with the jeans, and my booties.  It definitely an effortless look, my fav.

Market & Spruce - Rowan Textured Pullover $58

Honestly, this sweater isn't anything special, but I like the color and it's comfortable.   It's something, despite not being very memorable, that I will probably wear frequently.  Easy for errands, shuttling the girls here and there, you know #momlife.  (just add a blanket scarf and sbux).

Market & Spruce - Alan French Asymmetrical Zip Cardigan $37

More mom wear.  This is so so so soft and cuddly, would be cute with jeans and boots or leggings and nikes.  Again, not the most stylish item, but something I need and live in during the winter months.

So there is my story of how Stitch Fix redeemed themselves in my book and I kept the whole fix for the first time.   If you are looking to try the service for the first time, please feel free to use my referral link!
