October Stitch Fix

As much as I love Stitch Fix, I didn't intend to get any more boxes this year. I felt like I didn't really need anything new, especially for the fall/winter season. Living in such a warm climate means that my cold weather wardrobe is still in an almost new condition. But, Stitch Fix told me I had a credit in my account and I needed to use it before it expired. I'm definitely not one to pass up free stuff! 

It's always so exciting to open your box! It's half the fun. Erica says this all the time but you absolutely have to try on everything! Things might look completely different once they are actually on your body. 

Here's what I got in my box!
Colette Piper Knit Top - $38

This is absolutely 100% my style. In fact it's almost identical to the top I wore in this post. The stripes are thicker, but the material and the cut is almost the same. So much so that I can't justify another striped shirt! The stylist definitely got it right though.
Verdict: Return

J Crew Merc. Maylee Slim Boyfriend Chino - $36.50
Stitch Fix // Pugs & Pearls Blog

Can I just say how much I love J Crew Mercantile? It's basically J Crew's version of Old Navy. The clothes are great basics and the prices are so much better than traditional J Crew. When I pulled these out I was not sure how I was going to feel. On one hand I was excited to see the brand, but I have never really tried a boyfriend style pant. I just never thought they would work on my shape. But, I was pleasantly surprised when I pulled these on! I do have a pair of olive cropped chinos (from Old Navy ironically), so I'm still debating on these. I'm also wondering what shoes would work?
Verdict: Still deciding. 

Tinsel Floid Chambray Top - $48
Stitch Fix // Pugs & Pearls Blog

Meh. That's how I feel about this one. I love the light chambray color and polka dots. The material is very heavy, so I know I wouldn't get much of a season to wear this top. Plus the fit is just okay. I don't hate an oversized shirt, but this just doesn't really flatter anything. I wish that the photo would reflect just how much extra material there is. I also noticed that the buttons easily come undone. If I loved it, I would size down. 
Verdict: Return.

Hummingbird Liara Knot Front Knit Top - $34

This is why I say you HAVE to try everything on! When I pulled this top out, I literally just put it to the side. The material seemed weird and almost sheer. I was positive I wouldn't like it. As soon as I tried it on I was sold! I LOVE this shirt! The knot front tops are very popular right now, but I had never considered it for me. This shirt does exactly what I've been trying to do with the 'half tuck' thing without being fussy. It's great. And the color is absolutely perfect for summer or fall. I immediately took the tags off and paired it with jean shorts-but I know it will look equally good with jeans and ankle booties in a few weeks. 
Verdict: KEEP! and try to find other colors. 

Nine Britton Abigail Brushed Knit Midi Dress - $54

If something could be the exact opposite of my style, this dress would be it! Holy crap, I didn't even want to put it on. It wasn't as bad as I thought once it was on though. I have super mixed feelings about the material. It's both soft and comfortable, but also really clingy which makes me uncomfortable. The length was great, and I did like the color. I think it would be really cute with ankle boots. However, I can't think of any occasion I'd feel appropriate in this. So not me. 
Verdict: Return.

Leave a comment below and tell me what your favorite piece is! Should I keep the boyfriend pants? Help me!

  1. Oh my gosh, I think that dress is gorgeous! Even though it wasn't your style, you absolutely pulled it off!!
    Glad you found a few winners in this box! The first shirt is SO you but when I saw the picture I was like, 'I think I've seen her wear this before!' Lol!

    1. LOL I knew everyone would like that dress! It's just not me.
      Haha, and yes-the striped shirt was hilariously similar to what I already had! I won't say it still wasn't tempting!

  2. You have a great selection here and for me the Breton top and chinos are no-brainers. The chinos would look great all year round - especially in Spring with more Breton tops haha! They'd look good too with cropped roll neck sweaters or a fitted turtle neck to look a bit beatnik? Hope that makes sense, I'm no style guru! ;) J xx

  3. That dress looks SO good on you - you should keep it!! Pretty versatile too! Could wear to a wedding, or dress it down a bit with a jean jacket for the chillier evenings for a date night? Love me some boyfriend pants, though I've only gone for jeans. I'm not really a chino girl but pair them with some snug booties?

    1. The colors are great! That shade of red is definitely popping up in my closet more often recently. Such a beautiful color! Thanks Anastasia!

  5. I have heard of this but never really had the desire to sign up. I feel like I can do my own styling I guess, I mean I am a fashion blogger after all. And it seems like clothes are not really style. But is seems like a great service for people who are on a budget and find shopping over whelmng.

    1. Yes. If you love to shop, Stitch Fix probably won't appeal to you. It's just a fun way to try out a few new things, and not have to go out looking for them. I've gotten some really nice pieces!
      Thanks for commenting Alicia!
