Stitch Fix, December 2018

This post contains affiliate links.

You know how I’ve been trying out Stitch Fix using their “the cheaper, the better” option?

Well, I decided to try bumping my price points up to the next level to see what would happen.

And I would say basically: nothing.

The prices of my items in this fix were kinda the same as in my previous fixes!

(Everything except the pair of pants was between $58 and $68. So maybe a little higher but not much.)


Anyway. You came to this post to see wardrobe photos, so let’s get to it.

Last time, I kept everything from my fix! This time, not so much.

from last fix

I got a pair of Tom’s in this fix, and they fit my feet pretty well.

But the white polka dot paint did not look at all like it would hold up, and I wasn’t super sold on the rose gold leather back of the shoes.

Gonna return those.

This plaid shirt was nice, but it was just too big for me.  This is untucked…

And half-tucking it didn’t help much.

The pants are black velvet, and while I think they look fine, I wasn’t a huge fan of the fit.

They kept sliding down my waist when I walked, even though they were actually pretty tight around my middle (they gave me a pretty uncomfortable muffin top when I sat down).

And they were $88.  I am actually willing to fork over the cash for expensive pants if they feel FANTASTIC and they’re well-made, but I am not about to pay that much for pants that feel anything less than great.

Next up, we have a dress. This is a lot of nope for me. I have a long torso, so the waistline of this hit me in an uncomfortable spot.

Also, I don’t like the overall lace thing…just not my style.

Not big on the back view of it either.

Ooh.  Here we have some Very Good Modeling.

This one’s going in the return bag.

So this fix would have been a total loss…except I got one thing I did really like!

(By the way, these are the jeans that had the rip by the zipper that I repaired. So far, so good!)

This sweater is soft and comfy, drapes nicely, and I like the color on me.

So yay! One thing to keep.

It’s got brown elbow patches, which you can’t see in these photos…sorry.

(Which reminded me that last fall, I got another green Stitch Fix sweater with elbow patches, but I didn’t like that one nearly as much.)

Oh! I have one more picture of VeryGoodModeling™ for you.


Props to Mr. FG and Sonia for taking photos of me.

By the way, a small seasonal reminder: Stitch Fix offers gift cards, so maybe that would be a good idea for someone on your holiday gift list.

I've heard a few people say that personal taste & syle impacts greatly what we enjoy wearing & I think it's true. Just because something suits you doesn't mean you will ever like wearing it. I think the best money spent is to buy things you need that you really like wearing, so I definitely agree you made the right decision re the red dress, I like the top you chose it looks stylish & comfortable, & it sounds like you will wear it a lot.

I just got my first StitchFix in December. I asked for dresses, and I kept 2 of the 3 they sent me. For January I asked them to send me casual tops. I'm excited to see what they send me.

I do like the green sweater on you, btw. Cute.

I was thinking about a Stitch Fix gift certificate for a friend. How much would the whole box typically cost?

Hmm, that depends on what your friend chooses for a price range! But if you gave a $100 gift certificate, then she could keep several pieces from her fix, probably.

Okay, I just had to creep by and mention how CUTE those Toms are. I stopped buying them years ago, but I do miss how cozy they are.

Did you stop buying them for a particular reason? I've never owned a pair before!
