Hi dear ladies of Stitch Fix ,and all the lovely readers who have just found us, a huge welcome! I received my December Stitch Fix the same day we were off to Victoria, BC. I just took my five pieces out of the box, put themin the luggage and off we went. This is the reason you won’t find a picture of the actual box I usually start my reviews with.
In case you are new here, you can find all the previous month’s Stitch Fix reviews here. These reviews have really useful information on how Stitch Fix works, how to get your best fix, and so many samples of the brands, and pieces they’ve sent me all styled in outfits, most with style tips.
UPDATE: See my January 2015 Stitch Fix review here.
In a short summary Stitch Fix is a fun, convenient, personal styling service that sends quality brands, and cute styles of apparel, and accessories to your way which you get to keep for three days, and try on with your existing pieces. At the end of the three days you get to choose which pieces you keep, or send back in the enclosed, prepaid envelope. If you keep the whole box you get a 25% discount. ( which I’ve done a couple of times, I am on my 19th fix, can you believe it? 🙂 )
This month once again I got five clothing pieces. Above cardigan, two dresses, a knit top, and a pair of corduroy pants. This time I’ll share the pieces I kept, and my reasoning behind the ones I sent back. As usual I first show you the Stitch Fix styling cards which gives you ideas on how to wear the items. If you want to refer back to these options you can file these cards in a folder when you get your own Stitch Fixes.
Skies Are Blue Kamaria Patterned Drape Front Cardigan ($58) This is at our hotel at Victoria, BC. The moment I saw this cardigan out of my Stitch Fix I knew it was a keeper. Open cardigans are such great winter pieces. I wear them under my long coats when it’s too cold, rain jackets when it’s rainy, and on their own when the weather is milder. Nothing beats a cuddly, drapy, pretty cardigan on casual days, and this one is a winner.
Style Tip: This casual outfit is pretty straightforward but still perfect for everyday. I wore my booties in the hotel but while visiting the Hatley Castle, and grounds switched to my Hunters in Navy Matte. It was a wet day, and I wanted to enjoy it without worrying about mud. My cardigan was the perfect weight for the temperature in Victoria that day. I added a necklace that has both green, and blue in it to tie all the colors together.

Isn’t the castle, and grounds so pretty? I was surprised to learn this place is not that old, (compared to European castles/palaces) however still magical to be around, and the building is just beautiful.
The second piece in my December Stitch Fix was this dress. I took it with me to BC but never got around to taking pics with it from all the sightseeing we did. It came back to the NW with me in the luggage, and tried on at home.
Yumi Quinn Diamond Geo Print Sheath Dress ($64) The fit of the Yumi dress was perfect. There was not one part of it too tight or loose, and the shape was easy to wear as well. Looking back I am not really sure why I didn’t keep it but I did send it back. I think my main reason was the timing. This fix coincidentally felt right in the time of Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, and I actually got really pretty dresses all on sale.

This top was styled with jeans, and a skirt by Stitch Fix. It is a very easy to style piece that would go with any outfit.
Market and Spruce Chaimbers Cowl Neck Knit Top ($48) If you are looking for a nice knit top at a good price point you may request this top from Stitch Fix. Sometimes they are able to fulfill requests if they have enough of the product in my experience. I did end up sending it back. I have many cowl necks so similar, even one the same color.
Corduroy, slim fit, and a deep burgundy red. I was so happy to see these pants out of the box.
Kut From The Kloth Jonathan Corduroy Skinny Pant ($68) As you can see from the pictures from my actual days out, I kept the pants. Ok ladies, seriously I don’t know what’s going on with Kut from The Kloth and me but there is a connection there LOL. I can’t seem to send back their pieces. They end up being just my style, and exactly what I am looking for. Great news for you I found these pants on sale in many colors. See below.
In this picture I am along Victoria coast driving with family, and taking pictures at sunset. It was FREEZING, I wore my ski jacket, a sweater, and scarf over the pants. Not too fancy but was perfect for that day. 🙂
Here are the pants on sale here in many colors. I love it in every color, and will surely order a couple more. The fit is great. I like it even more for a night out. Here I wore it to a restaurant for family dinner with friends tonight. Do you recognize the jacket from my September fix? You guessed it right it is also Kut from the Kloth.
This was a very popular Stitch Fix piece from a couple months ago that I kept from a previous fix. You can see my previous outfits in it here, and here. It has proved to be an amazing piece I seem to reach out for so much.
In case you have been searching for it I found it on sale here, and it is still available.
I like how Stitch Fix styled this drape front dress. It would look great with a cardigan, and boots as well as sandals. I went with pumps for a glamorous look myself.
Loveappella Haleigh Drape Front Tunic Dress ($48) In person the color of this dress is so gorgeous. I adore the blue/green. I also like that it has a drape front, and built in layer inside. Makes it so much easier to wear. The price for a dress this cute, and soft in fabric is just right as well. I would have kept it in a heartbeat if the fit wasn’t a bit too tight for my taste, especially in the back. I do love fitted dresses however I want to make sure the pieces I wear are still appropriate, especially as a mom.
Hope you enjoyed this edition of Stitch Fix. If you have never tried this service, and are on the fence, being on my 19th fix I obviously recommend it. 🙂 The $20 styling fee is totally applicable to the cost of the piece (s) you keep, and the excitement is really thrilling. Definitely think it’s worth a try even for once. <3 More than likely you’ll become a fan.
