Fashionistas and Friends, Welcome!!
Happy to share my fall Stitch Fix reveal and review. And glad you are here to join me! I am always excited when my Stitch Fix box arrives in the mail. But I never open my boxes right away. Instead, I prefer to just imagine what it holds inside for a day or two. Always marveling when I do open each box, that my stylist was able to get ‘all of that’ inside such a small box. I need her to come pack my suitcase next time we go on vacation!

Fall Stitch Fix Reveal
In keeping with my recent pledge to start vlogging more, I videotaped my Stitch Fix reveal or unboxing. Bear in mind, I haven’t learned how to use editing software yet. So this video is a little on the long side. And apparently, I suffered from temporary amnesia because at the end, I couldn’t remember how to turn off the camera! Ha! Would like to promise my videos will get better but there is no guarantee.
See what I mean about turning off the camera. I will get that down before next video!
Fall Stitch Fix Review
Here are the 5 pieces in my fall Stitch Fix as I did a quick try-on just to see what worked and what didn’t.
In each of the photos, I am wearing the Articles of Society Hiliary skinny jeans (similar, similar) from my Fix. They were comfortable and soft. But I didn’t keep them because at $68.00, they were above my price point for jeans. And I wasn’t too sure they didn’t make my behind look even wider and flatter than it is. Uh, no, thank you.
Same goes for the white Cupio Blush Branley one pocket knit tee (similar, similar), $28.00. The fabric was dreamy but I didn’t think the fit was flattering. It was awfully full. Maybe too big, but cut wider at the hips and flowy-ish. Would have been a great maternity top if my baby making factory was still open.
That leaves the 41 Hawthorn Sabo boat neck embroidered sweater (similar, similar), $64.00. The Buffalo plaid Leo & Nicole Syd open knit cardigan (similar, similar), $64.00. And at $44.00, the leopard print Pink Clover Abby button-back knit top (similar, similar). I kept all 3.
Styling My Fall Stitch Fix
My baby girl Lucia was sick this morning so I didn’t have to go over the mountain until my 10:00 a.m. physical therapy appointment. It was crisp but sunny out, the perfect weather for styling my Stitch Fix pieces and opening my fashion haus to share the looks with you.
Stitch Fix sends along these little cards with styling suggestions for each of the pieces included in your Fix. Decided to try to replicate their styling suggestions with pieces out of closet.
41 Hawthorn Sabo Boat Neck Embroidered Sweater
I would almost call this a sweatshirt. It isn’t sweatshirt material. But something about the cut reminds me of a sweatshirt. Or maybe it’s just the gray color?
This is the styling suggestion card.
Kind of hard to see, but the skirt is a burgundy color. I don’t have a burgundy skirt but I have some burgundy pants.
Old Navy super skinny Rockstar jeans and ON snakeskin d’Orsay flats, Tommy Hilfiger white blouse, faux pearls.
Leo & Nicole Syd Open Knit Cardigan
Wasn’t completely sold on this cardigan until I saw my stylist’s styling suggestions. I’ve said it before but I can’t seem to think out of the box. Too matchy-matchy. Would never have thought to pair this Buffalo plaid with a peacock blue!
Will need to drink a glass of wine before I try that combo. But here’s how I styled this cardi.
Pulled out an old Loft Outlet fit-n-flare dress, my gray tights (which I discovered have a hole on the left big toe!), and gray booties. My necklace is a tangled mess from Charming Charlie. Taking it tomorrow to be untangled.
Pink Clover Abby Button-Back Knit Top
This leopard top is as cute going as it is coming!! Especially with the elbow patches and the button details down the back. Even I can think of a bunch of ways to wear this sweater. Here’s the styling suggestion from Stitch Fix.
I had the pieces to style both of these looks but thought the denim skirt and tennies looked super fun. And out of my comfort zone. Put both looks together for a flat lay then wore one out today. And that rhymes!
On the left, Loft Outlet black skinny jeans, Target red ballet flats, Express white utility blouse, gifted earrings from my BFF! Look on the right, very old Dress Barn olive twill utility jacket, JCPenney denim skirt, Converse tennies, KEEP Collective bracelet.
Check out that back!!! Not mine, the sweater’s.
Wore this look to physical therapy and one of the college-age therapy techs complimented me on my outfit. She made me feel so good about trying something outside my comfort zone.
Even though I didn’t keep everything in this Fix, I really liked what I kept. It was fun putting together these outfits today. I used my good camera, +. Ran up and down the stairs to change so many times that my fitness tracker gave me credit for climbing 9 floors, +. And felt good in each outfit, +. Thank you, Stitch Fix.
