My November Stitch Fix came three days early, which was a real bummer because I didn't have my husband home to take photos of me in the items I sent back, and I also didn't have a lot of time to try on outfits and decide what I wanted to keep. I schedule my Fixes to arrive on Fridays so I have all weekend to play around with the Fixes. I don't have the luxury of doing that during the week. So yeah, I was not happy it came early. Nevertheless, I will still do a Stitch Fix post for y'all this month, but unfortunately it will include a lot of selfies. I will also include the short videos I post on my Instagram Stories where I ask my readers to vote on "What I should Keep and What I should Send back". If you miss these stories (as they are only kept on Instagram for 24 hours) and would ever like the opportunity to vote, let me know in the comments below along with your Instagram handle.
First up, the one item I was most torn about:
Michael Michael Kors "Telina Textured Blouse"
Ugh! Ladies I can't even begin to tell you how much I loved this shirt! I really wanted to keep it. I thought it was so pretty and it looked great on. But it was $84.00 and I just thought it was too steep for a top. I also have a similar Michael Kors black top, so I really didn't need it, (although the Micheal Kors top I do own is no where near as nice as this). I almost kept the entire box, just so I could keep this top, but I really wasn't fond of a sweater I got in the box, so again, I just couldn't justify it. This is one of the hardest things about Stitch Fix! Having to send things you love back! But, I did find this top on sale for $54.00 at Macys but all they had was a small. I wasn't sure if I could size down or not, I liked the way the Medium fit me, so I didn't order it. However, I will keep an eye out for this top at TJMaxx. That's where I find a lot of Michael Kors deals!
Here are some of the amazing details in this top. The back has a fun angular open slit.
The top has a sheer layer underneath, and of course, the Michael Kors label.
The sleeves are elastic at the wrist.
Instagram readers loved this top as much as I did. It came in at #2 with 71% saying to "Keep" and 29% saying to "Return".
Jill Michael "Elliot Pre-Layered Bar Necklace"
I was BEYOND THRILLED to get this necklace in my Fix. I have a lot of jewelry, but most of it is fancy jewelry. My outfits are very casual these days, so I really need more simple jewelry pieces. Plus, I even like to wear more simple pieces when I'm wearing dressier clothes to tone the outfit down a bit. Simple jewelry pieces are hard to find, and I often find myself wearing the same necklace a lot because I don't own a lot of simple pieces. This necklace is perfect! It will go with so many of my casual outfits as well as my dressier ones. I have a feeling I will be wearing this quite frequently.
Apparently lots of women prefer more simpler jewelry because the necklace came in at #1 on Instagram with 80% of pollsters saying to "Keep" and only 20% saying to "Return".
My next Stitch Fix item got low polls on Instagram but was very popular on my blog. I wonder if how I styled it had anything to do with it? In the video I'm just wearing it with jeans, but on the blog post I'm wearing it with a skirt.
RD Style "Montoya Open Cardigan"
I have a hard time returning cardigans. I keep almost any cardigan Stitch Fix sends me. I will always choose a cardigan over a pullover sweater. I love the layering possibilities with a cardigan, and also the ability to add or remove it. My mid-life body temperature changes constantly, so I need something I can take on and off with ease.
Here is a picture of the cardigan worn with the skirt. Isn't the color just beautiful? I love the knit too.
Instagram readers did not like this cardigan. Only 33% said to "Keep" and 67% said to "Return".
Teeberry and Weave "Kasia Color Blocked Curved Hem Pullover"
This sweater was the item I was really on the fence about. If I would have kept this sweater I could have kept the entire Fix and received a 25% discount. In the end, I just didn't love enough to shell out those extra bucks. I know this "color blocked" style is trending all over the Internet, but I just don't like the way large, bold, horizontal stripes look on me. I also didn't like the pea green color of one of the stripes. I think I would prefer this color blocked style in a cardigan. This way, I could embrace the trend, but not have big stripes going straight across my chest.
Instagram readers were not fond of this sweater either. It came in at only 38% saying to "Keep" it and 62% saying to "Return" it.
Liverpool "Elizabeth Super Skinny Jean"
My absolutely FAVORITE item in this Fix were these skinny jeans. If you have been following my fashion posts long enough you would know I'm all about comfort. If it's not comfortable, I won't wear it! I was so excited to see these jeans in my box because I wanted to try them for a very long time. They are PULL ON jeans! But they are not your grandma's elastic pants. There is no elastic waist band that you can see, and they have a faux zipper and faux pockets. They fit like a glove, have a high waist so my tummy stays tucked in, and the denim is dreamy soft. I just love them! My only regret about these jeans is that they do slip down during the day so I have to tug them back up, but I believe all leggings do that. I wish they came with a belt loop! But I could always add belt loops if it really starts to bother me.
I will probably not wear a single other pair of jeans all winter, I love these so much. I am wearing these jeans in all the selfie photos above, plus I wore them with this outfit too. See how well they fit?
Instagram Readers liked the jeans too, though not as much as me. 63% said to "Keep" and 37% said to "Return".
In summary I received five items from Stitch Fix: A top, a pullover sweater, a cardigan, a necklace, and a pair of jeans. I kept three items: the cardigan, necklace, and jeans.
So what do you think? Did I keep the right items? I'd love to hear from you!
Have A Great Day! Amy
