October Stitch Fix marks an important milestone in my Stitch Fix Journey. I am on my 30th box and I think I can officially call myself a Stitch Fix veteran. 🙂 As you’ll see below in my Stitch Fix October 2015 Review, my stylist made this milestone much more special with the beautiful pieces she sent my way. I love all seasons of style; however I have to admit that fall, and winter bring so many options for layering and textures.
If you are new to TheBoxQueen a big Welcome! I would like to guide you through my Stitch Fix Reviews section. I start my reviews with the styling cards Stitch Fix sends, show you how I put each of my pieces into outfits, continue with my style tips, and include why I kept/sent back each item. I also include all the details of each look under the pictures. I invite you to start your reading from the Stitch Fix Category to see my previous Stitch Fix’s.
A Summary of How Stitch Fix Works
- Stitch Fix is a fun, high quality, personalized styling service. You fill out a very detailed style profile including your body measurements, likes & dislikes. You can even connect your Pinterest or social channels to help out your stylist with their choices. The Stitch Fix’s get better in time as they learn more about your fashion sense and taste. See: My Tips on How to Get Your Best Fix
- The $20 styling fee is completely applicable towards any purchases you may make. You send all your non-keepers back in a pre-paid envelope after trying all your items for three days in the convenience of your home.
- You have the option of buying a one time box or setting up a periodical service such as a box every one, two, or three months. I receive a Stitch Fix every month for the past two years and I still can’t get enough of it.
- If you keep all 5 pieces you get a 25% discount.
- I also have a section where I remix my previous keeper items. See Stitch Fix Remix 1 and Stitch Fix Remix 2.
I can’t wait to share the contents of my October Stitch Fix with you ladies. Let’s start!
In my October Stitch Fix I received a mixed media zipped jacket, a romper, a knit dress, an open cardigan, and a pullover sweater.
Stitch Fix styled Blank NYC mixed media asymmetrical drape jacket with two different jeans.
Blank NYC Lettie Drape Jacket ($98)
This piece has been a recent favorite of mine and I believe I even pinned it on my Stitch Fix Pinterest Board. The jacket is knit material on the front, has an asymmetrical zipper, and the back and half the arms are faux leather. It is a GORGEOUS piece; one of those items that I fall in love with at first glance.
If you would like to request the piece from Stitch Fix, I recommend it wholeheartedly. If you are not that patient, I also found the exact Blank NYC Drape Jacket in many different colors here and more colors here.
See the close up of the details. I love how trendy, unique and pretty the jacket is but so wearable at the same time.
STYLE TIP: These moto leggings I recently purchased in a variety of colors called out to me for an outfit when I got the Blank NYC jacket in my hands. I thought this burgundy one was especially a nice match. Olive and burgundy flow together beautifully and I wanted to add my plaid pumps to bring some movement to the combination.
My accessories including these Kendra Scott classics are from Rocksbox. You can get a FREE MONTH of Jewelry service from Rocksbox here with my CODE: theboxqueenxoxo . They send the best brands. (See all my Rocksbox Reviews)
One thing I noticed about the Blank NYC jacket is that it is very similar in style to the asymmetrical cardigan I kept from Stitch Fix last year. Even the color is almost the same.

STATUS: SENT BACK
You will be surprised to hear that I sent back the jacket. I am just as surprised as it’s a piece I have to have. Like I mentioned above, the jacket is almost identical to the cardigan I previously kept ;(minus the faux leather) especially in color.
I made the decision to purchase the Blank NYC jacket in this French Grey or this Red. I’ll still have the beautiful jacket but my closet will have more variety if I get it in a different color.
In the styling cards Stitch Fix styled this piece with pants in both outfits once again and made it day and date night appropriate with change of accessories.
Pixley Timmy Twisted Seam Sweater ($68)
STYLE TIP: I also thought the sweater would make a lovely casual outfit. I added my own touch with a fave destroyed boyfriend jeans (almost identical), studded red spiky flats, and a grey hat. I finished off the look with a couple of jewelry items from Wantable and Rocksbox. (get a FREE MONTH with CODE: theboxqueenxoxo ) This is the type of outfit I could wear any day dropping my kids off to school, having lunch with friends, or going to a book store.
Love this Perry Street Necklace from my latest Rocksbox. (Code:theboxqueenxoxo )
Sweater: Stitch Fix | Pants: Boyfriend Jeans Zara Past Season (almost identical here) | Hat: BP (same brand very similar) | Shoes:Halogen | Bag: Foley+Corinna | Earrings: Wantable (see my reviews) | Necklace: Rocksbox (Get Your FREE MONTH code:theboxqueenxoxo )
STATUS: SENT BACK
If you are building up your pullover sweater collection, this is a truly great option. The sweater has a really nice fit and the black/white striped design is easy to wear with so many bottoms. I have quite a large variety of pullover options at home, and own many striped versions. For me it wasn’t worth keeping this one as I do have many similar pieces.
Stitch Fix sent me this burgundy red knit dress in a fit and flare fit. They styled it with flats for day and heels night.
41 Hawthorn Carmina Dress ($74)
At first glance I wasn’t sure of the dress. It doesn’t immediately scream my name, and doesn’t have the originality, details, and that bit of an edge that I am looking for. When I put the dress on though it felt like a second skin; the fit felt very good. I dress for myself, I don’t normally ask for my husbands opinion on my style choices. (although I love it when he likes the choices I make LOL) He did comment that this is a beautiful dress though and he thought I could wear it to a special event.
STYLE TIP: This dress has an understated elegance. I thought heels in the same color family and a couple of sparkly jewelry pieces ( like the Popbasic necklace- available now in the Treasure Trove Section) would be enough to complete the outfit.
Dress: Stitch Fix | Shoes: Calvin Klein -past season (same color&brand here) | Necklace:Popbasic | Other Accessories: Wantable
There are very subtle stripes on the fabric of the dress. I love the open V back detail.
STATUS: SENT BACK
I almost kept this dress. I am still not sure whether I should have. At the end of the day I thought it wasn’t really me, however if I did keep it I know I could wear it and feel good in it.
This Alice Blue open cardigan is specially designed for Stitch Fix . Once again it’s shown in a jeans outfit on the styling cards.
Alice Blue Daphne Open Cardigan ($58)
STYLE TIP: Remember the moto leggings I showed you in burgundy in my first outfit? I also purchased their navy version. ( If you are looking for textured, cool leggings get your hands on these ladies, they look great in so many outfits and they are affordable.)
I loved how the navy goes with the blue in the open cardigan. I did pattern mixing in small dose with the Striped PopSugar Must Have scarf. It was a bonus the scarf has the same florescent coral pink in it as the cardigan. My Franco Sarto booties are comfortable and they have just the enough amount of heel to make my casual outfit a bit more chic.

I’ve mentioned many times that I have a thing for open cardigans. Previously I kept this green one from Stitch Fix last winter, and the orange open cardigan in this post is also from Stitch Fix. I loved this one for the print, it’s length, and the arm design. It was an easy choice and I kept it happily.
The Zaria Romper was styled with red accessories including flats for a day look, and a blazer and wedges for night.
Pixley Zaria Romper ($68)
STYLE TIP: The romper is gorgeous. It is super short though, especially for winter. I wore my opaque spank tights under the romper and felt more comfortable with the length. (Bonus! They also provide medium support) I wore my Wantable necklace, and earrings from this Stitch Fix to add shine. I wanted to keep the pumps the same color of the tights to add continuity. (which makes the legs look longer and gives you a more balanced silhouette)

STATUS: SENT BACK
I have to admit the romper is gorgeous, and I wear rompers quite a bit in summer. Recently I bought this romper which you can also see in my Go Shopping Post. At this point I didn’t feel like I needed another fancy romper. If you need one and feel comfortable with shorter styles in colder weather, this one could be a stylish option.
Overall Impressions: I think my Stitch Fix stylist put together another amazing box for me. It has color, patterns, textures, edge and even a style (the dress) that made me think outside of my own box. Stitch Fix continues to be an exciting service for me and I look forward to see what my stylist puts together for me each month. Being on my 30th SF, I do recommend you give it a try to see what you think of it. As I noted above, I think the service gets better as you put your input and as the system gets to know you. <3
