Stitch Fix Review (#23) + $20 Gift Card Giveaway!
This is my first fix as an Albuquerquean. (Say that 10 times fast.) I requested a box full of southwestern flare so I could fit in and look like a true New Mexican. Sonia, my awesome stylist for my last few boxes, was not available, so Michelle styled me. I have to admit that when I see my Stitch Fix has shipped, I act like I’m checking out so I can peek at my box. #SorryNotSorry After peeking, I was not too sure this was the box I requested, but I always wait until my box arrives to pass judgment.
If you are not familiar with Stitch Fix, you better get with the program! You pay a $20 styling fee upfront per box. 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.

After reading the note from my stylist, this WAS the southwestern style box I requested. Let’s see what’s inside!
Kut From the Kloth Rose Bootcut Pant – $78 [Return]
I love me a good KFTK pair of pants. They are so COMFORTABLE! But ummm…I made an oops. I moved to Albuquerque, where I am not working from home (aka no longer in an office), and I forgot to update my profile. *facepalm* Emily! Yep, I still had in there that I prefer professional clothing. Getting a pair of trousers hemmed that I don’t really need in the first place didn’t really sound that appealing, so I returned them. But I definitely would have kept them if I was still working in an office. I might have kept these pants if they were shorter, but they were sooo long. I had to wear my highest heels and they still almost touched the ground.
I normally don’t show my feet in pictures (or wear shoes at all for that matter), but since I have moved, I have a bigger and brighter space to take pictures! But this is now one of the few times I wear heels. I converted to flats for everyday wear awhile ago. I love heels, but they don’t love me. My poor feet have been tortured for years. Now that I’m in my old age (32), I am wiser and am protecting my feet with AirPlus cushions and liners.
They have different inserts, cushions, and liners for your different needs. When I wear really high heels, I need the Ball-of-Feet cushions. When I am breaking in new flats, I need the Hug My Heels liners. They are so comfortable!
Okay, I went on a tangent. Back to the Fix!
Brixon Ivy Jarred Lace Detail Cap-Sleeve Blouse – $58 [Return]
This blouse is BEAUTIFUL! I love the color and the lace detail. I returned this because I am not yet ready to show off my arms. (C’mon BeachBody!) I normally throw a cardigan on over sleeveless shirts, but it would be a sin to cover up the back of this shirt.
How gorgeous is that?!
Alice Blue Fieres Cold Shoulder Blouse – $58 [Return]
I don’t usually go for cold shoulder shirts, but this one was so flattering! I loved the sheer, poofy sleeves. I would have kept it, except that I could not for the life of me get the straps to stay up! They are adjustable, which is great, but I could not find the sweet spot. I think that the straps in the front are attached to close to the sleeve, and need to be attached closer to the middle.
Kut From the Kloth Simmons Bootcut Jean – $88 [Keep]
These jeans are to die for! They feel wider than most bootcut jeans, which is perfect for summer and wedges! I love these jeans! So comfortable! Keeper!
Brixon Ivy Sylvester Split Neck Blouse – $54 [Return]
While I love the color and style of this blouse, it was a little snug in the arms. Stupid arms. I have been working out and hopefully I won’t have this problem much longer. But I never justify buying clothes for “when they fit one day.”
So that was my fix! While it was not quite the southwestern style I was looking for, it had some very pretty pieces. What did you think? I am very excited to be able to share better pictures now that I have better lighting and more space. Next month’s fix will be even better because I bought a GIANT mirror! I am excited to style WHOLE outfits for you.
