My January Stitch Fix ( received last days of December) came right in the middle of the busy holiday craziness. I was expecting it a couple days later, and it was fun to have my Stitch Fix box with me during dinner parties where I can share it with friends, and speculate over each
piece. Love how everyone gets so excited over Stitch Fix. 🙂

STITCH FIX REVIEW JANUARY 2015


I have a very detailed Stitch Fix reviews archive. If you’ve newly discovered our community, I recommend you start reading from the beginning to get all kinds of information on how Stitch Fix works, how to get your best fix, and see lots of styled pieces & brands they send. There is also a series I started back in summer named “Stitch Fix Remix” where I show you ladies how I reuse my Stitch Fix pieces in new outfits. I know you’ll find the information you are searching for in one of these articles. 

I also share the pieces Stitch Fix sends when I discover them sold at other online retailers whenever I can. I know it can be frustrating to see an item here, fall in love with it, and don’t know if you can receive it in your next fix for sure. When I find what I get at an online store, I make sure to let you gals know. Here are some Stitch Fix items of mine I discovered at online retailers. I’ve gotten very positive feedback on this, and I plan to continue sharing. 🙂

You’ll also find this month’s keeper item found elsewhere below in case you have to have it. It is a really nice piece. <3

Another place I share a lot of my Stitch Fix outfits, and their existing & upcoming brands and pieces is my Pinterest “Stitch Fix Likes” board. If you are on Pinterest you can find me here to stay updated on all things Stitch Fix as well as outfit ideas.

Let’s start with each piece I received in my January Stitch Fix. I’ll give you my exact reasons on why I sent back & kept each piece.

STITCH FIX REVIEW JANUARY 2015
STITCH FIX REVIEW JANUARY 2015

I got five apparel pieces. Three tops, a dress, and a skirt. The first of the tops is this lace trimmed navy top. Stitch Fix shows it in casual and work appropriate outfits on the styling cards.

Skies Are Blue Lisa Lace Trim Knit Top For my interpretation, I went with a mix of casual chic. It’s so cold, and super rainy here in the NW at the moment, and I need color in my life to cheer up.

STITCH FIX REVIEW JANUARY 2015
STITCH FIX REVIEW JANUARY 2015

Style Tip: Color is definitely not just for summer. Especially in the winter months colorful outfits has a positive effect on us. ( At least they for sure have on me) When it’s dark clouds on a rainy day think purple, green, red, and pink. Here I balanced the darkness of my navy top with a green skinny jeans, my red peacoat ( also seen here), and favorite red bag. The navy/cobalt mary jane pumps anchor the look and pull all the colors together.

The pretty details on the navy top.

STATUS: Sent back.

I thought long and hard on this one. It was my second choice out of this box. I think this Under Skies top would be a wonderful addition to your closet if you don’t already own similar styles. The fabric feels good, the design details are well thought out, and the top is very versatile. In the end it came to the fact that I do have this type of tops, in fact many of them. My resolution is to keep clothes I absolutely love, and need in my closet ( to tame the crazy piles it is right now) so this regretfully went back.

Stitch Fix styled this floral top with a skirt, and again casually with jeans.

I thought the pink in this top would go nicely with my grey destroyed jeans. Once again I went with heels instead of flats but otherwise kept this an easy to wear, everyday outfit. I thought the slim jeans would showcase the longer back of the top which is what is unique about it.

I like the peek a boo back on this top, and the slightly longer back.

STATUS: Sent back.

At first glance I really liked this top. The colors are pretty, and the back details modern. Making it into an outfit, taking pics, and looking at myself in the photos though I decided the blurred print was not that pleasant for me. It just made me a bit queasy, not easy on my eyes either LOL. I didn’t think I could wear it all the time, however if you don’t feel like me it is a very cute piece. 🙂

A faux wrap dress, black/white pattern, and blousy but slim fit shape. I was so excited when I saw this dress out of my January Stitch Fix.

STITCH FIX REVIEW JANUARY 2015
STITCH FIX REVIEW JANUARY 2015

Eight Sixty Everett Long Sleeve Faux Wrap Abstract Print Dress

The moment I put this dress on it felt like second skin. So comfortable; fitted without being unflatteringly tight. It has so many possibilities. The dress could easily be used in a work environment, as a special day dress, or with tights, and booties under a cardigan for a more casual outfit.

STITCH FIX REVIEW JANUARY 2015
STITCH FIX REVIEW JANUARY 2015

Style Tip: A faux wrap dress is the perfect style for a well fitted, flattering dress. Instead of the true wrap dresses, self tied ties, these dresses have a V neck front that drapes over the other. For an effortlessly stylish outfit whenever you need one, I strongly recommend you have a couple of this style in your wardrobe.

STATUS: Kept.

I couldn’t NOT keep this dress. It is that perfect piece that is just the right fit to many types of closets, and it sure fit right into mine. Totally in love with my new dress.

I got my first dolman top from Stitch Fix a long time ago last year, and reviewed it here. Although not exactly the same, this top is from the same color family, the main difference is this one has shorter sleeves, and the pattern is vertical instead of last year’s horizontal.

Renee C Malcom Ikat Print Top 

Style Tip: Similar to my first outfit of Jan. Stitch Fix  review, I once again matched color with color for a happy winter look. For the purpose of showing you I didn’t wear anything over the top in this pic but if I kept it I would put a cream or navy chunky cardigan over.

STATUS: Sent back. I didn’t keep the top over a year ago, and didn’t end up keeping this time. There wasn’t really any specific reason other than elimination by default. I already had my heart set on the dress, and unless I kept the whole box was going to keep just one piece.

The Mixed Geo print Skirt is a tight fitting, to the knee (on my 5 5′ frame) pencil skirt style that would easily be dressed up in a fancy evening look, as well as styled in a more casual outfit like the one I chose to wear.

Style Tip: A strechy pencil skirt such as this one can be the centerpiece of a day outfit. I matched mine with a chunky knit sweater, and heeled booties under my favorite raincoat.

STATUS: Sent back. The skirt was cute but a bit too tight for my lifestyle to wear comfortably everyday.

Receiving Stitch Fix is such a joyful experience for me each month. I love the brands they send, enjoy trying the pieces with my own clothes at the comfort of my home, and love that I can send back what doesn’t work in a prepaid envelope. It is a box of fun for me.

Have you treated yourself to Stitch Fix yet? What is your favorite item you got from the service so far? Would love to hear your thoughts.

    Love the style and pattern of the dress! I would wear it all the time. Love how you paired it with the Popbasic necklace; it’s such a pretty piece, I love mine. 🙂

    • Theboxqueen

      That Popbasic necklace is such a jack of all trades piece, goes with so many type of outfits, the neutral crystal coloring is so easy to match with anything and everything. Love it. The dress is cute right? I’ll definitely wear it in a more casual way as well. Have a great week lovely, XOXO, Elif

  • Tulay Ban

    Love your choice! It is indeed a very versatile dress. Enjoy

    • Theboxqueen

      Thanks Tulay. I imagine this dress worn casually as well with flat boots and a chancy cardigan, indeed versatile. 🙂 XOXO, Elif

  • ADA

    Hope your holidays were lovely Elif. As always you do such a great review of Stitch Fix, so thorough and greatly-styled. My favorite pieces are the dress and chevron top. I am glad you kept that gorgeous dress.

    Happy New Year Beautiful Mamma! <3 Ada.

    • Theboxqueen

      The holiday season was really fun Ada, lovely time to reflect and spend time with family. Hope yours was as nice and I wish you the best 2015. I am so happy to know you enjoyed the review and liked the outfits. Love my dress. 🙂 Thanks for the sweetness <3 XOXO, Elif

  • You made the right choice! The dress is the best!

    • Theboxqueen

      Thanks Amy, I couldn’t bear to send it back. 🙂 XOXO, Elif

  • Katie McLean

    Love your reviews! I had one of those asymmetrical cardigans from Modcloth when SF sent me the Market and Spruce version in black, and I have found the M&S version superior in quality. The fabric is softer and doesn’t pill nearly as much, and the Modcloth version has a magnet in the shoulder that stopped holding the interior panel up within about a week after I got it!

    • Theboxqueen

      That made my day Katie, so happy you like the reviews and thanks for saying hi!! 🙂 I have both of the cardigans, the one I kept from Stitch Fix and one in another color from Modcloth. I enjoy them both and so far haven’t experienced a problem but as always really appreciate the insight and hearing your experience. Hope to chat again soon 🙂 XOXO, Elif

  • I especially love that first outfit that you put together, the color combination is amazing! I’m also jealous to see grass ;).

    • Theboxqueen

      Thankfully Andrea NW is pretty green year around 🙂 I love it too. The colorful outfit is the type of outfit I like to wear for the darker days, glad to hear you like it too. Thanks lovely girl. Happy 2015, XOXO, Elif

  • Lorna Mai Ltd

    I love all the outfits you put together. I wish we had stitch Fix in UK. Love the outfit with the coloured green jeans, red jacket and blue shoes. Love the combination. Happy 2015 to you.

    • Theboxqueen

      They seriously should ship to UK. I connected with many readers from UK that would love to receive one of these pretty boxes. 🙂 So happy you like the outfit Lorna, love some color in my life in winter to brighten up the rainy days here. Thanks dear and happy 2015 to you as well. XOXO, Elif

  • So glad you kept the dress, it is beautiful on you!!!

  • coopersgurl

    What a great fix! I’m getting the faux wrap dress in my fix this month. I hope it looks as good on me as it does you 🙂

    • Theboxqueen

      That’s so nice of you to day & welcome to Theboxqueen!! Have you received your wrap dress? Did you keep it? XOXO, Elif

  • I stumbled upon your blog and find it so refreshing and fun. As women, I think we love getting gifts and surprises- and what better than subscription boxes. I was curious which subscription box you believe you get the best bang for your buck? Also, which is your favorite to receive? Which would you most recommend someone to try?

    I also really appreciate that you show how you style your clothes with Stitch Fix because sometimes I cannot picture myself wearing it how it is on the Style Card has it laid out, but you have so excellent styling ideas I would have never thought of!

      Hi Janet, welcome to Theboxqueen!! So so happy to hear you liked what you found here, made my day! 🙂 I think right now Little Lace Box is pretty amazing lifestyle subscription. If you haven’t already read my reviews on them you can find them under sub boxes section. The pieces chosen are so high quality, and they have the best themes. You can use boxqueen10 for $10 off a monthly box or they have a yearly option that comes with 20% discount. I think they are a wonderful bang for your buck :))
      Also if you like accessories I love Wantable- also have so many reviews on them.
      I am glad you like the clothes shown in different angles. Sometimes the backs have really pretty surprises. Hope we chat more in the near future. <3 XOXO, Elif
