It’s another delightful Stitch Fix time of the month ladies. ( Fix #16 to be exact) I received my September fix this past week, chose my lovely piece, and I am so happy with it. Due to latest feedback I got from quite a few of you dear readers, I thought it was time to bring back the theboxqueen’s Stitch Fix mystery game for this month. I took all my pictures in the same location to not give my keeper away, & will give you some clues through out the post in italics. I would LOVE it if you let me know which item you think I picked/should have picked? 🙂 Hope you enjoy.
If you are new to theboxqueen, first of all welcome! So happy you have found us Stitch Fix fans. You may want to start by reading all my previous Stitch Fix reviews. Those will fill you in with a lot of resources, including what Stitch Fix is all about, how to get your best fix, and a LOT ( and when I say a LOT, I mean it 🙂 ) examples of the type of brands, and pieces Stitch Fix sends. You’ll see all of these pieces styled in outfits to give you ideas, and hopefully inspiration.
Here is what you get when you meet Stitch Fix for the first time (ohh the excitement) and every time after. A box full of Stitch Fix items your stylist hand picked & personalized for you (depending on your style profile), a white envelope that has your styling cards, notes from your stylist, & your receipt, and finally the large USPS return pack that you put all your non-keepers in and send back for free.
You can find more information on” How Stitch Fix Works” in my May review “How to get your best Fix” in the August review, and see how I remixed some of my past pieces in “Stitch Fix Remix”. These are great starts to get all the information before you try Stitch Fix for yourself, or to browse through while you are waiting on your current fix.
In my September box, I received a sweater, a drape front faux leather jacket, two tops, and a dress. Last month in my August Fix, I kept the whole box. For September’s Stitch Fix my goal was to build my fall wardrobe, and only purchase items I really need ( although all five of them are awfully cute) You can also opt to receive accessories such as handbags, scarves, and jewelry.
Here is the first clue of the mystery game: I only kept 1 item this time. Which one do you think it is? Let’s take a closer look. Also if you would like more people to play along, I would appreciate it if you pinned the below pic. <3
Like always, I’ll first show you the Stitch Fix styling cards, then my own interpretation of the piece in an outfit I styled.
The first piece is this short sleeve Collective Concepts floral top. Stitch Fix styled it causally with jeans, and with a skirt for the evening look.
Collective Concepts Denova Mixed Material Floral Print Blouse ($34) There was a bit of green in this beautifully colored top. I thought my pistachio colored BCBG generation jeans ( super comfy and on sale right now) would pick up that green, and make a pretty fall outfit. I completed this outfit with my neutral, pink toe-capped flats. I would wear this look to pick up my kids from school, running errands, for anything daily & casual really, when I also want to feel cheerful.
I was thinking; do I really need more short sleeve tops when we are entering the chilly fall?
This dress, styled by Stitch Fix with a jean jacket for day, heels & statement accessories for night, is made of such a comfortable fabric. It has a way of hugging curves in all the right places which is flattering for a lot of body types I think.
Gilli Brooklynn Cap Sleeve Drape Front Dress ($64) The rather modest neckline, and to the knees skirt length of the dress immediately made me think this would be the perfect alternative for the office.
Style Tip: Obviously you can go anywhere with this dress; but ladies if you are working in an office environment, and want to add fun pieces to your wardrobe, request Brooklynn Cap Sleeve dress! You won’t be sorry. Worn alone, or with a cardigan/short blazer over, it’ll be perfect for work hours, and after work dinners.
I would jump on this dress any day. Have you seen my August Stitch Fix though? I kept smt. almost identical.
The styling of Stitch Fix on the card beautifully combines the faux leather + fabric draped jacket with fall plaids,and a fancy striped dress.
Kut from the Kloth Maisha Ponte Drape Front Jacket ($88) In my version I wanted to create a cool, carefree but still feminine look. The mixed textures, and fabrics of the jacket is really soft, and so pleasant in person. It also is very comfortable on, and drapes so effortlessly.
Style Tip: Match your ripped jeans with a fitted top, a fitted type of leather/faux-leather jacket, and high heel pumps. You’ll still get that cool rocker vibe but will also project a more grown-up and feminine image.
I love the soft draping of the collar. I think it helps make this jacket laid-back instead of stuffy, especially in the strechy, faux-leather fabric.
Zara #Fashioncode clutch is so fun, and represents my love of Instagram. I have to say, there is not much I don’t love about this jacket. It is pretty fab.
As Stitch Fix demonstrates on the styling card, Davenport Crew Neck tank goes nicely with jeans or skirts. The tank is slightly longer on the back making it original, and suitable for legging looks.
Fun2Fun Davenport Crew Neck Mixed Graphic Print Blouse ($44) For me graphic tanks like this one screams fun. I created a look I would wear to a date night, or a mom’s night out with skinny jeans cuffs rolled up, and lace peep-toe booties.
Close-up of the top. My long-time, styling soul mate of a stylist, Ishara listened to me when I asked for tunic length tanks to wear with my beloved leggings. ( Thanks girlie 🙂 ) One thing is I don’t really fancy paisley that much, and this design definitely is paisley-like.
Side look of the tank top. You can see how it’s longer on the back.
The final piece of my September Stitch Fix is this airy, crochet knit sweater.
Papermoon Lisbeth Crochet Knit Long-Sleeve Sweater ($58) A tank top is a must under this sweater as it is completely see through. I thought my green everyday pants, mid-heel shoes with velvet bows, and faithful big brown bag would make a casual chic outfit out of this item.
Close up of the sweater. The layered necklace is Wantable ( also seen here).
This is a nice everyday sweater but the need for the tank top doesn’t make it as practical for me.
Update: Thanks everyone for participating in this edition of Stitch Fix mystery game. As many of you guessed I’ve kept the Kut from the Cloth Maisha drape faux leather jacket, and I’ve already worn it more than once. 🙂
If you haven’t yet treated yourself to a box of Stitch Fix, I say go for it! (well yeah says someone on her 16th haha ). The $20 styling fee is well worth trying out the personalized service, and the wonderful excitement of the anticipation of your pretties. Shipping both ways is free, and your styling fee is applicable to your purchase. (you get 25% off if you keep the whole thing)
Hope you enjoyed this edition of my Stitch Fix reviews, and enjoyed looking for clues. I can’t wait to hear which piece you think I kept, and your favorite pieces of this box. <3
