Dear Stitch Fix ladies how have you been since last month? I sure missed chatting with you.
My life has been fast-paced as usual, and I feel like once again a month has gone by with a blink of an eye. Today, after a long, and fun day of me time ( finally got a facial after a really long time), blog work ( took more pictures for this review), kids activities, puppy playdate, my son’s school auction, and writing this post, I feel rather exhausted but so excited. Why? Because this is my first Stitch Fix that includes accessories, and I am thrilled to finally start showing you some examples of what they carry. Cuteness alert- Stitch Fix does amazing on the accessories department too!
I am not entirely sure why I chose to receive only clothing items until fix #22 haha. I think it was my perception of having a bit too many accessories at home. ( which is completely true btw) In any way, I am so happy with my decision of asking my dear stylist Ishara for a bag & jewelry this time around, and I am not sure whether I’ll ever look back, & revert to my old ways of just wanting clothes.
Are you new to TheBoxQueen? If so, a warm welcome from me, and a virtual hug. <3 You may want to start your Stitch Fix reading from my Stitch Fix reviews section. That place is seriously packed with info on everything Stitch Fix.
You can find how this fun personal styling service works, see all the pieces sent to me styled in outfits, (along with my style tips) and even get my tips on how to get your best fix. I even link to Stitch Fix items I find elsewhere (if I can) in case you can’t get your request from SF, and can’t live without a certain item you see here. I am on my 22nd Stitch Fix ladies, I’ve got you covered. 🙂
Let’s start the fun ladies. What do you think? You can find my outfit details under photos. I tried to find the exact matches, or linked to super similar styles. I am also sharing why I chose to keep or send each piece.
In this Stitch Fix, I got three clothing pieces, and two accessory items. This pullover sweater was the first one out of my box. Stitch Fix provides these nifty styling cards for each piece they send. You can even collect them in albums to give you ideas for future outfits. They show options for day & night looks.
Mystree Aldora Pullover Sweater ($58) & Romolo Harriot Floral Cluster Necklace ($42)I
Style Tip: I loved how Stitch Fix styled the white knit over jeans. I added my own twist by pairing mine over ripped jeans with a faint rose pattern, and used printed pumps instead of booties. Even if you avoided destroyed jeans until now, I invite you to give them a try. They look great on all body shapes, add an instant modernness to any simple look, and I believe they are ageless.
You just need to find the one that works with your lifestyle. Give them a try! If you want to go for a more put together look, pair them with pumps like I did. It’s all in how you style the jeans. The jeans I link to in solid blue are a great starter piece, at an amazing price point. I just can’t imagine my closet without my beloved ripped jeans. 🙂
I love the light, airy feel of this knit top.
Style Tip2: Sometimes when I like the cut, fabric or feel of boyfriend jeans, but want a closer fit, I go one size down. That’s what I did with the Joey boyfriend jeans here. I could go both sizes, and chose the smaller one. I love the resulting fit that’s between skinny jeans, and straight cut.
Jeans: Nordstrom, STS Blue Joey Destroyed Jeans ( here is the plain, light version identical), | Knit: Stitch Fix ( very smilar sweater at Nordstrom), Clutch: Popbasic ( get $15 off collection w/link) | Necklace: Stitch Fix | Shoes: Bought traveling from a boutique in Europe
Stitch Fix also sent me the Floral Cluster Necklace. I thought the blue tones in the middle of the petals paired really nice with this white/blue outfit.
Aldora Pullover Sweater – KEPT
This sweater is right up my style alley. It’s the perfect piece to add casualness to many different looks. I plan to continue wearing it with my jeans. I am also thinking of adding this top over skater, and pencil skirts to create a contrast of styles. I couldn’t let the sweater go.
Harriot Floral Cluster Necklace – SENT BACK
If you are just building your statement necklace collection, I think this necklace is a great starter. As someone who has too many statement necklaces in her jewelry box, especially in floral shapes, I thought I probably didn’t need another similar item. Also the $42 price tag was a tad steep for this piece in my opinion.
I think how Stitch Fix styled this pencil skirt, in the prettiest of yellow hues, was right on point. How adorable is the striped top, and flats look for day, and the scalloped top, & heels for night ?
Brixon Ivy Sabina Textured Pencil Skirt ($58) and Urban Expressions Ayana Studded Envelope Clutch ($38)
In box #22, Stitch Fix , along with the pretty textured skirt, sent me the Urban Expressions studded turquoise bag that double as a clutch, & shoulder bag with the included chain. I thought colors of these two pieces really complimented each other.
The floral tank top is one of my new purchases. I actually bought this tank in three solid colors as well. It has a really nice cut. The tank is lovely on it’s own, but super functional to use under open cardigans, blazers, and see through tops.
Top: Nordstrom ( exact piece, also in variety of colors here) | Skirt: Stitch Fix | Shoes: Nine West ( sold out) | Jewelry: Wantable ( get 30% off w/this link until Feb. 28th) | Clutch/shoulder Bag: Stitch Fix
Exact Clutch/Shoulder Bag: I found the bag here too 🙂
The pattern on the skirt is subtle in person, however looks special when worn in an outfit. I love that although there is a pattern on the skirt, it is still very easy to pattern mix with it.
Style Tip: Pattern mixing can give new life to the pieces in your closet, and let you multi-task them in fresh looks. To strike a balance, make sure one of the prints is more subtle, while the other is more prominent. Add some fun accessories. Don’t forget to mix in some neutral anchoring pieces into your ensemble, like my beige shoes, and belt. They’ll bring the whole outfit together.
Textured Pencil Skirt – SENT BACK
It was SUPER hard to send back this pencil skirt. I was really fond of the soft yellow color, and the texture on it. You know I made the decision to only keep items that I can wear frequently. We are still in fall mode here ( I know it’s almost spring but the weather feels like fall, not quite winter, and not quite warm), and I am saving my lighter weather picks to next months.
Studded Clutch – SENT BACK
This clutch is the best size for easy use, and I love that you can double it as a shoulder bag. You may know, I have quite a number of clutches. Otherwise this was an easy pick. <3
The fifth, and final piece of my Stitch Fix was the Market & Spruce open cardigan. As I would have myself, they styled it with jeans, and over a casual dress.
Market & Spruce Quito Open Drape Cardigan ($68)
This striped/chevron print open cardigan, and it’s colors are really pretty. This cardigan technically had a lot of potential. It’s no secret I like open cardigans. (See the one I kept from my February Fix) The fit on this one was a bit off on my body though. I felt it just didn’t lay right. I had to arrange it to stay as I like.
STATUS – SENT BACK
Part due to the fact that I just recently kept another open front cardigan, part because of the fit problems, I sent back this piece. It’s cute though, and may look different on your body. Worth trying.
Cardigan: Stitch Fix | Knit V neck tunic & pant leggings: Zara | Shoes: Hunter boots in Navy | Jewelry: Wantable ( Get 30% off with the link until Feb. 28)

Are you considering treating yourself to a box of pretties from Stitch Fix? As a girl on her SF #22, I obviously say go for it. LOL. Seriously though, you need to try this service at least once. You need to experience the excitement of anticipating which pieces will be sent to you, play dress-up mixing & matching with your own clothes, and just enjoy being a girl. See for yourself if Stitch Fix is for you. <3
