Meet the Sullivans: Stitch Fix Review Box #9

Stitch Fix Review Box #9

My first post-baby Stitch Fix came last week, and I was really excited to see what was going to be inside! I haven't done much shopping since Luke was born because I haven't wanted to buy a lot of clothes for my current size (I'm about 5lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight), so I was hopeful I'd find something cute in this fix.

If you're wondering what Stitch Fix is, or how it works... It's a personal shopping service, and all you have to do to get started is fill out the Stitch Fix Style Profile and our personal stylists will handpick a selection of five clothing items and accessories unique to your taste, budget and lifestyle. You can buy what you like and return the rest! The styling fee is $20, and if you pick something from your fix that fee is applied to whatever you decided to buy!

If you've never tried Stitch Fix before I highly recommend giving it at least one try. It is so much fun! And if you do decide to sign up please use my referral link --- thank you thank you!

I love seeing how they style the pieces. Or how they suggest you style them. I had some similar pieces to what they showed but didn't have the time to pull them all together like I have in the past. Next time!

Item #1: Collective Concepts - Shaye Shirt Dress ($88) - I actually liked this dress. A pattern this bright and busy is usually out of my comfort zone, but I thought the cut was flattering and the color too. But alas, I do not have a need for a dress like this right now. I have no events coming up and I spend most of my days doing house work and playing on the floor, so I just could not justify this purchase. Verdict: Returned

Item #2: Loveappella - Benete Back Slit Knit Top ($54) - I was not impressed with this top. Spring is here in California, so I'm already over wearing dark wintery colors. It was nothing special. Verdict: Returned

Item #3: Market & Spruce - Brandey Criss Cross Back Ribbed Knit Top ($44) - Another underwhelming piece. The back was kind of fun, but the overall tightness of this style isn't really my thing, and it was quite short. It hit just over the button of my cords. I also like tops with a little room in the waist these days. Verdict: Returned
Item #4: Dear John - Marson Wide Leg Jean ($78) - These jeans were a top contender. I only let myself keep one thing from each box, which can be hard sometimes if I really like more than one thing, which happened this time. The color of the denim was really dark, and I actually loved the trouser style, which isn't always flattering on me because of the pockets that flare out. They were really comfortable too and the waist was a perfect fit. I only returned them because I would only wear them with a heal, and I don't wear heals often at all. If these came again in another box (does that ever happen?) I would keep them. Verdict: Returned

Item #5: Market & Spruce - Alan French Terry Asymmetrical Zip Cardigan ($68) - I've seen this cardigan in lots of other people's fixes and pinned it to my Stitch Fix board on Pinterest, so I was happy to see it made its way into one of my boxes! I know I will get a LOT of use out of it, so it was a non-brainer of a choice!

Verdict: Kept!

Overall this was an okay box since I really liked 2 out of the 5 things inside. Next time I will try to be more specific about what I want to see in my fix and I'll probably wait another 6 weeks before I order another one. What are your thoughts on the items I was sent? Would you have kept anything?

If you'd like to see what I've been sent in some of my past fixes...
