December 2015 Stitch Fix

stitch fix december 2015

I recently received my December Stitch Fix. This was my fix #9 from the company. For those who have never heard of Stitch Fix, it is a personal styling service. You fill out a questionnaire about your style, size and price point, and a stylist will send you a box of items. You pay a $20 styling fee, but that is credited back if you keep at least one item. You pay only what you decide to keep. If you decide to keep all the items, you will receive a 25% off the entire purchase. Here is my review of this month’s box and my decisions:

1. Market & Spruce Fierro Elbow Patch Crew Neck Sweater $58
This sweater is 20% wool and 80% polyester, hand wash only. Although it feels soft and the pink elbow is cute, I don’t think it is anything special and I could find a sweater I like more at this price.
Decision: Return

2. Staccato Raelene Striped Draped Front Cardigan $48
I actually love this–its super soft, I love the stitched details and draping, the buttoned sleeves make the length adjustable, and the price is reasonable. However, I am very picky about high maintenance clothing. The washing instruction says hand wash cold and do not dry clean. I usually wash my clothes after each wear so I avoid clothing that’s hand wash only.
Decision: Return

3. Skies are Blue Asa Blazer $68
My friend, Tracy, who photographed these outfits love this blazer, but we both agreed the quality is VERY low. There are lots of ways to style this, but I’ve seen cuter blazers at cheaper prices and higher quality. Far away it looks fine, but up close it just doesn’t look as polished. The fit is also loose, and I prefer a more fitted look.
Decision: Return

4. Gilli Gary Dress $54
This one-piece dress is the perfect fit and I love the flared bottom. It’s casual yet I can also dress it up. I love that it doesn’t wrinkle and I don’t have any dresses in the black/white color combo yet! Finally a keeper!
Decision: Keep

5. Zad Malia Circle Hoop Layer Necklace $28
No close-ups available of this necklace but I am wearing it with outfit #2 and #3 above. It is a layered necklace with one hoop on each layer. I have a few gold layered necklaces already.
Decision: Return

So for December, I am keeping one item. With the $20 styling credit, I paid another $34 for the black and white dress. I am packing this for my vacation in a few days and cannot wait to wear it! Let me know what you guys think of this month’s fix!
