Stitch Fix #11 Review {It’s Mah Birfday} + A $50 Gift Card Giveaway

Stitch Fix #11

January 7 is my birthday! I actually changed the date of my monthly delivery so that my Fix would arrive in time. My note to my stylist stated that I was willing to splurge because it is my birthday month, and I wanted to look glam but modest for my big day! I also requested Brookelyn or Mayte style me, because they have sent me the best boxes so far. If you are not familiar with Stitch Fix, I strongly urge you to give it a try and check out my last Fix! It costs $20 per box, which covers the styling fee. You try on the clothes, keep the ones you like, return the ones you don’t. Pay for the items you keep and the $20 styling fee gets applied to that cost. Get 25% off if you buy all five items. Easy, right?! You can sign up here.

Now I have to admit that I peek. When you get notification that your Fix has shipped, the link to checkout shows up online. If you click this link, all the items they sent you are listed (no pictures unless you have the iPhone app) with prices. I always search the internet for the items because I HAVE to know. What I have found is that first impressions are not always right. I might be disappointed after I peek, but after I try on the clothes my attitude does a 180. And my first impression for this box was not great. Two items I couldn’t find online, so there is still hope. I was expecting more dresses. From what I found online, this fix was not as glam as I was hoping.

But then the box arrived. Let’s see how they did!

RD STYLE Donno Embellished Neckline Sweater – $88

RD Style Donno Embellished Neckline Sweater Stitch Fix

I loved the material and weave of this sweater, but it was just too short. I am not into midriff tops at all. My midsection is my problem area and needs to be covered up.

I thought the neck detail was beautiful! The thing I did not like about the neckline is that it is stiff and so it sits funny on the shoulders.

RD Style Donno Embellished Neckline Sweater Back

I have another RD Style sweater that has a similar split back, I guess they really like that style. It is fun!

PAPERMOON Ankeny Woven Back Knit Top – $58

Papermoon Ankeny Woven Back Knit Top Stitch Fix

I’ve been pinning floral shirts and I’m so happy I finally got one! This Papermoon shirt is gorgeous!

Papermoon Ankeny Woven Back Knit Top Side

I love that is longer in back and covers my big ole butt. I also love that the back is black. It is more slimming on me than all over print.

This is definitely a keeper! Can’t you tell I’m so happy in it?

BRIXON IVY Lezlie Dress – $78

Brixon Ivy Lezlie Dress

Every girl needs a little black dress in her closet, and I don’t have one! Can you believe it? I like that this dress is cinched at the waist and is very flowy.

Brixon Ivy Lezlie Dress Detail

I love love love the detailed neckline. This dress definitely fits my “glam but modest criteria.”

The dress is longer in the front than the sides, which makes for a fun flowy movement.

LE LIS Maude Floral Dress – $78

I think this dress is pretty, but the pattern is not really me.

To be honest, I don’t think this fix was as glam as I hoped. My stylist did mention she reviewed my Pinterest board, but I had just pinned a bunch of shiny and sparkly New-Years-Eve style dresses that I considered glam yet modest. I received none of them. I understand they can’t always send the exact items we pin, but these dresses weren’t even close.

LE LIS Calina Crochet Shoulder Knit Top – $54

Le Lis Calina Crochet Shoulder Knit Top

This shirt is really cute and I love the lace detail! It is very comfy as well.

The lace starts at the shoulder and goes all the way around the back.

Le Lis Calina Crochet Shoulder Knit Top Back

I really do like this shirt, but I’m torn. They send me a lot of gray items, and for some reason I always love them! I need more color. Should I keep it or return it?

So that was my fix! What did you think?

    I’m partial to gray too! I think I keep getting black and gray because I always keep them, even thought I ask for more color.

    I like both the floral top and the sweater, but I do think the sweater would be even better in a fun, vibrant color.

    I can’t decide if I liked the Black dress the best or the black and white dress!

  24. Lauren
    January 14, 2016 at 4:21 pm (2 years ago)

    Cute Emily! I wanted to try it but it seems pricey. What do you think?

    • Lauren
      January 14, 2016 at 4:22 pm (2 years ago)

      oh and I liked the floral top!

    • Emily
      January 15, 2016 at 6:53 am (2 years ago)

      It can be pricey, but is probably no more expensive than shopping at a department store. I think the cheapest clothing item I’ve had was $48. Sometimes they send scarves, which are less. You’re not obligated to buy anything, so if you return all the clothes you are just out the $20 styling fee. You can always cancel after your first box if you don’t like it. 🙂

    I like the grey sweater.

    I love that black and white dress! I don’t think the pattern was too bad, but if it’s not your taste then that’s what matters. But the cut was definitely very flattering on you! I got a dress this month that I had the same problem with: perfect cut, imperfect detailing/pattern. But I asked my stylist to try again with a similar cut and a more flattering pattern (no horizontal lines).

    Happy Birthday!

  31. Melissa S
    January 27, 2016 at 5:57 pm (2 years ago)

    I really like the crochet lace tee the most.

  32. Emily
    January 30, 2016 at 10:36 pm (2 years ago)

    Great fix! And you look great in all of them (even though some weren’t quite what you were hoping for). 🙂

    February 2, 2016 at 8:35 am (2 years ago)

    What a fun fix!!!!! You look fantastic in the LE LIS Maude Floral Dress! This dress is very flattering to your figure and the neutral palette is fun to play with and dress up with accessories.

  35. Jessica
    February 2, 2016 at 8:46 am (2 years ago)

    I’m digging the Le Lis floral on you!

  36. Monica Bassett

  37. Julie
    February 2, 2016 at 8:54 am (2 years ago)

    Love the black dress! And I actually really like the open back sweater even though it is short it would look great with a longer cami underneath!
