It’s time to review my Stitch Fix October box! I’m seriously addicted to this service and have gotten so many friends addicted too (sorry everyone! I couldn’t possibly let you miss out!) I was excited to know that my stylist was putting together some looks for fall in San Diego…which is basically summer but with pumpkins and turkey involved. I liked nearly everything out of the box, but as always, once I try it all on I’m able to form some true opinions. I’m going to go from best to worst this month and start out by highlighting what I loved the very most in my box, being this Market and Spruce Aleah Heathered V-Neck Dolman Top in a grayish-blue color. I love dolman tops this time of year since I tend to overindulge on pumpkin spice lattes a bit and they do a great job of hiding that fact! At $48, the price is right for the warmest sweater I should ever need living here in sunny SoCal, so this one was a keeper!
Another favorite this month were the Margaret M Emer Geo Print High Waisted Crop Pants. I didn’t get a good close up shot of the print, but it’s a fun geometric print that would pair well with a ton of different tops. From far away they almost look like jeans, and they fit me perfectly and were so comfortable! But, my only concern with these pants is that they are pull-on pants without a zipper or buttons of any sort. I have bigger hips and was afraid of ripping them just trying them on, so at $98 I felt the investment for the Emer Pant wasn’t worth the possibility they might tear after a few wears. I think for someone with narrower hips these might be a safer bet. I really loved them, but opted against keeping them.
Another fun item in my box this month was this 41Hawthorn Walt Skirt. I really liked the fit and look of this skirt and was surprised that the horizontal stripes didn’t seem to widen me much, if at all. The fabric was nice and thick and I think it helped suck everything in! 🙂 I just don’t wear a ton of skirts, so I couldn’t rationalize this one. I think if I were still a working woman this would’ve been a tougher decision for me.
When I first took this Market and Spruce Xander Short Sleeve Woven Back Sweatshirt out of the box, I really loved it and crossed my fingers that it would fit! It was close, but the baggy look was just a bit too much for me. I love how this top has a look of a sweatshirt in the front and a dressy blouse in the back, it’s fun and really unique! It was just really loose and flowy on me, so I opted not to keep it. I think the price of $54 was great though, if only it were a bit more form-fitting on the bottom half!
The last piece I received was the Pixley Kathy Striped Fit & Flare Dress, and I really despised it to be honest. As you can tell from the photo below, I didn’t like it enough to even share a picture of myself wearing it. Every single angle I tried still made me look like I gained 20 pounds just putting on this dress. It’s unfortunate because I saw a lot of other bloggers wearing it and they looked super cute! I think this dress is made for someone smaller who maybe wants to look curvier, and definitely not the opposite. It’s not a great cut for someone with a larger bust and/or hips in my opinion. The low v-back was the only redeeming thing about this dress. I’m begging Stitch Fix to not send me any more fit & flare dresses, and please especially not with horizontal stripes!!
