Stitch Fix: October 2016 Review

It’s been a few months, but it’s finally time for another Stitch Fix review! I decided to skip out on August and September since I didn’t want to add any more summer clothes to my wardrobe. But with a couple trips coming up to cooler places this fall, I specifically requested some fun outfits to wear during my travels and to soak up all that is fall weather!


Market & Spruce Merideth Sweater Dress ($88)

This sweater dress was the first thing I pulled out of the box and I could already tell it was going to be a no-go. But since I’ve been wrong about clothes before, I gave it a try. It was even worse on! While I was hoping it would work out, there wasn’t a chance in the world. Notice that there’s no photo with me in the dress to model it. It was THAT bad. Verdict: Returned


Liverpool Reagan Skinny Pant ($88)

I received a pair of Liverpool pants in a Fix last year and have to tell you, they’re the most comfortable pants I’ve EVER owned! They feel like yoga pants, but are something that looks fancy enough to wear to work or for a business casual event. This pair didn’t disappoint either! While I’ve been trying to lay off adding more pants to my wardrobe, I love that these are a dark brown, one I don’t currently have, so I made an exception. Plus, they’re a thicker material which will be great for both fall and winter travels! Verdict: Kept

Alice Blue Elby Split Neck Blouse ($48)

I was so excited to try this one on when I saw it in the box. I love the color and the pattern is fun. Totally something I’d wear. Unfortunately, the fit was totally off. The blouse was too big on the top and too tight on my arms, where the shirt was pinned back for quarter sleeves. I tried rolling the sleeves down to see if it would help, but no dice. Such a bummer! Verdict: Returned


Loveappella McCally Raglan Knit Top ($54)

I’m pretty picky when it comes to striped tops, but appreciate that this one has different types of stripes instead of the same ones all the way across and around. Plus, it’s made of the comfiest material! Not to mention it pairs fabulously with the last item I received in my fix, so despite the higher-than-I-wanted-to-pay price on the tag, I decided to keep this one. Verdict: Kept


Market & Spruce Jahana Cargo Vest ($68)

Totally saving the best for last here, and believe me, this one was a surprise to me! I’ve never quite understood the fall vest trend. It’s probably because I’ve lived in Florida most of my life and don’t get to wear fall clothes too often. Even taking the vest out of the box I just felt “meh” about it. But guys, as soon as I put the vest on, I totally got it. The vest thing clicked. I love this thing! Verdict: Kept


What did you think of the items I received in my Stitch Fix? Any you absolutely love or aren’t so crazy about?

    A lot of my friends have been doing stich fix & I think after this review I might have to try it out too! I especially LOVE that vest!!

    • October 29, 2016 / 8:47 PM

      You absolutely should! I’ve gotten some amazing things from them (including the vest)!

  4. October 17, 2016 / 9:49 AM

    These are all cute. I love the chunky sweater and the green vest the most.

    • October 29, 2016 / 10:50 PM

      I love the vest too! So perfect for fall!

    Ok I’m so glad you kept that cargo vet because it’s adorable on you! Plus so versatile! Great review girl!

    • October 29, 2016 / 10:52 PM

      Thanks, Chrissa! I’m so excited about it. Stitch Fix does such a great job styling!

    • October 29, 2016 / 10:53 PM

      Right!! I’m so pumped about it!

  6. October 17, 2016 / 10:27 AM

    That vest is so cute on you! I love it!

    • October 29, 2016 / 10:53 PM

      Thanks, Olya! I’m glad they sent it to me, I love it too!

    That’s too bad about the sweater dress, it looks so cute on the hanger! But you’re right, the striped top and vest look great :)

    • October 29, 2016 / 10:53 PM

      Thanks, Jessica! At least the sweater vest not working out saved me some money :)

  8. October 17, 2016 / 11:07 AM

    love love love the striped top! and the vest is cute. i am with you on sweater dresses, it’s been a long time since i’ve worn one of those haha. the split neck blouse is definitely an odd fit!

    • October 29, 2016 / 10:54 PM

      Same! That dress haunts me.. it was awful. Haha.

  9. October 17, 2016 / 11:22 AM

    I like the stuff you kept! That sweater dress does look a little rough, especially with that price tag.

    • October 29, 2016 / 10:55 PM

      Thanks, Becky! It definitely was. I think they should remove it from their collection entirely!

  10. October 17, 2016 / 12:00 PM

    That vest is amazing!

    • October 29, 2016 / 10:55 PM

      Me too! Stitch Fix did well this month.

  11. October 17, 2016 / 4:39 PM

    You got a great fix! I love all the stuff you kept!

    • October 29, 2016 / 10:55 PM

      Thanks, Lauren! I’m really excited about the new pieces I added to my wardrobe!

    • October 29, 2016 / 10:57 PM

      Thank you! I’m loving it!

  12. October 17, 2016 / 4:51 PM

    That vest is EVERYTHING! definitely a keeper!!! I just got my October fix a couple days ago and it was super disappointing. I don’t think I’m going to keep anything! :(

    • October 29, 2016 / 11:05 PM

      I’m so happy they sent it to me! I never would’ve picked it up in a store. Bummer to hear your fix didn’t work out :( Maybe reach out to them and see if they’ll refund your styling fee this month. Total miss boxes are pretty rare I think!

  13. October 17, 2016 / 5:15 PM

    Love that vest! It’s not something I would pick out, but it looks so cute on!

    • October 29, 2016 / 11:04 PM

      I’m 100% with you. I’ve never been into vests but once I put it on, it totally clicked!

  14. October 17, 2016 / 8:48 PM

    I love that vest on you! It’s perfect.

    xoxo, Jenny

    • October 29, 2016 / 11:05 PM

      Thanks, Jenny! I love it too!

  15. October 17, 2016 / 8:55 PM

    oh gosh that vest is so cute!! I love vest and totally had the same thoughts as you until I tried one on!!

    • October 29, 2016 / 11:06 PM

      Thanks, Angela! Glad to hear I’m not alone in my transition to team vests, haha.

    • October 29, 2016 / 11:06 PM

      It’s wonderful! If you sign up for Stitch Fix, request it!

  16. October 17, 2016 / 10:22 PM

    You got the cutest stuff! I was nver happy with my fixes but I might have to try them again soon – seems to have gotten better!

    • October 29, 2016 / 11:07 PM

      It can definitely be hit or miss. If you try them again make sure you’re specific in what you like/dislike and what you’re looking for (if anything). Plus keeping your Pinterest board updated. That makes all the difference!

    That vest is perfect! I have been wanting to try Stitch Fix! Thank you for sharing your experience!

    • October 29, 2016 / 11:07 PM

      You definitely should! It’s such a fun way to get new clothes!

    I actually love EVERYTHING in that fix! Do you have a Pinterest board they reference?

  19. Stephanie Parrell
    October 18, 2016 / 7:55 AM

    Looking good! Seems like it all worked out well.

    • October 29, 2016 / 11:08 PM

      Thanks, Stephanie. I got some great pieces this month!

    October 18, 2016 / 7:56 AM

    I love all the styles here. Especially the sweater dress!

    • October 29, 2016 / 11:08 PM

      They have some great pieces for fall. I wish the sweater dress worked out better for me!

  21. Kristen
    October 18, 2016 / 9:07 AM

    Love that striped tee and vest! Great keepers! I’ve never tried stitch fix, but the items seem overpriced to me.

    • October 29, 2016 / 11:11 PM

      Me too! It’s a great service. The prices can be a little high sometimes (mostly tops it seems) but everything I’ve gotten has been great quality – I wear them all the time!

  22. Patricia Conte
    October 18, 2016 / 9:39 AM

    LOVE the pants and that vest, which I hope they’ll toss into my next Stitch Fix box ;) I’ve been looking for one, but haven’t found one I’ve liked. These look great on you!

    • October 29, 2016 / 11:10 PM

      Thanks, Patricia! Make sure you add a note to your stylist or pin the things you like. Hopefully they’ll send them to you too :)

  23. Jena Proctor

    What a great box! I guess cargo vests are in this fall, I’ve seen them in a few places this season! Those pants looks great! I need to try those!

    • October 29, 2016 / 11:09 PM

      The pants are SO comfortable. I definitely recommend them!

  24. October 18, 2016 / 10:20 AM

    You got a great box girl! I actually really like that dress you got but of course some things when you put them on vs it being on the hanger….are completely different. I love striped shirts for fall. Also love the vest you got!

    • October 29, 2016 / 11:03 PM

      I feel like the sweater dress came out of left field from my stylist, but I’m really happy with most of my fix! The striped shirt and the vest are so fabulously fall :)

  25. Ashley Bridges
    October 18, 2016 / 2:12 PM

    Stitchfix is always hit or miss for me. Sometimes I get it and love it, other times everything in it is either totally not my style, ill fitting, or too expensive. Glad you got a decent box!

    • October 29, 2016 / 10:57 PM

      It’s the same for me. Usually there’s at least 1 piece I like. I do wish the price would drop on some of their things though!

  26. October 18, 2016 / 4:55 PM

    The stripe top and vest go together perfectly for fall! I love it!

    • October 29, 2016 / 10:56 PM

      Same! I love when Stitch Fix sends full outfits for you to piece together!

  27. October 18, 2016 / 9:40 PM

    This was a great box!! That vest is also WONDERFUL! I think this might be the year that I jump on the vest trend as well.

    • October 29, 2016 / 10:56 PM

      You should! I totally get the vest trend now.

  28. Carolyn
    October 18, 2016 / 9:48 PM

    I love that vest. I haven’t thought I wanted one before but it looks fantastic on. It even looks good with stripes.

    • October 29, 2016 / 10:49 PM

      Same! I still can’t believe how much I love it!

  29. Kelsie Kleinmeyer
    October 19, 2016 / 10:03 AM

    I have yet to try Stitch Fix, but have heard great things! I love that polka dot top and the vest. So cute!

    • October 29, 2016 / 10:48 PM

      You should give it a try! They offer maternity clothes too!

  30. Alexis Prieto
    October 19, 2016 / 11:00 AM

    LOVE the last picture with the 3 pieces put together! So cute!

    • October 29, 2016 / 10:47 PM

      Thanks, Alexis! I’m excited about the outfit!

    October 19, 2016 / 8:07 PM

    I LOVE that cargo vest! Holy heart eyes!

    • October 29, 2016 / 10:47 PM

      I love it too! Never thought it’d be something I’d wear either!

  32. Laurajj
    October 20, 2016 / 5:35 PM

    Oh that is so neat! Would be fun to see what you get each month! Like Christmas! I really love the LOVEAPPELLA MCCALLY RAGLAN KNIT TOP! That is so cute on!

    • October 29, 2016 / 10:47 PM

      It is! I’m loving the top too :)

  33. October 23, 2016 / 6:15 PM

    Love the color of the sweater dress – looks so cozy, but totally understand. Sweater dresses don’t go well for me, either! LOVE that vest though – such a win!

    • October 29, 2016 / 10:46 PM

      I know, I was so bummed about it. I’m glad I got the vest though!
