There were three packages waiting for me when I got home from work on Monday night, and surprisingly, none of them were from Amazon.
The first was a gift from one of my best friends, Kristen. It was a beautiful glass mug with Poppy + Grace on it…in MY FONT! I thought that was such a sweet and thoughtful gift to create my logo on a mug (love you, Kristen!)
The second was a few Young Living essential oils products that I had won through a giveaway (I never win anything!)
And the third was my Stitch Fix box! I knew it was being delivered that day and could not wait to get off work to come home and see what my stylist had sent, then I came home to these other two surprise packages, and that was just icing on the cake!
So what was in my third Stitch Fix box? Keep reading to see the items my stylist sent and what I decided to keep.
Stitch Fix Review – Winter 2018
This time I requested some crimson pants because I have been wanting some for a while, but have had a hard time finding any this season. I also requested tops that could be worn throughout the winter season.
Item #1: Andrew Marc Performance Knot Front Top
I originally liked this top when I got it out of the box. It is knotted at the bottom, which I thought was a nice touch, and the fabric is a nice, comfy material. But when I got it on it simply wasn’t anything special. It felt too basic, and the knotting pulled around my mid-section in kind of a weird way. I ended up sending this one back.
Item #2: Fortune + Ivy Vicky Brushed Knit Top
This top is SO SOFT! It’s loose fitting, which I like, and it has nice detailing around the hem line. The bottom of the shirt is split and uneven in length. Sometimes when a top is longer in the back than in the front, I feel like it makes me look shorter for some reason. But after wearing it a little more, it’s comfy enough that this detail doesn’t bother me. I ripped the tags of and wore it out to dinner the day after I received my shipment!
*That’s one of the great things about Stitch Fix! You can wear it around for longer than you can in a store, so you can be certain whether you like the item or not.
Item #3: One5One Jodi Ponte Skinny Pants – Burgandy
I requested a pair of crimson pants in this shipment, and even though these aren’t quite the color I was looking for, I do like the color and I love the fit. They are like a thick legging and they are actually pretty slimming. They look more of a shade of purple than a shade of red, but I like the fit enough to keep them!
Item #4: Staccato Artemis Knit Top
Like many clothing items I have received from Stitch Fix, this top has that little something extra that takes it a step above “basic.” This is a super soft, casual grey top, but it has buttons down the back and elbow patches! I love the look of elbow patches and I don’t own any other tops with this detail, so I knew as soon as I pulled this one out of the box that as long as it fit, this would be a keeper (and it did)!
Item #5: Gorjana Chloe Gold Stud Earrings
These earrings are very pretty, and I’m sure I’d get wear out of them, but I just couldn’t justify spending $35 on stud earrings. Maybe this is a good price and I’m just a cheapskate, but I can’t bring myself to do it. I also have sensitive ears so there’s a pretty good chance that they would irritate my ears and I wouldn’t be able to wear them often.
Honestly, if I had been on the fence about the first top I probably would have kept them both to get the 25% Buy All discount, but I didn’t love the top enough to keep the earrings, and I didn’t love the earrings enough to keep the top (if that makes any sense at all). Back you go.

3. Schedule your first fix (you’ll be charged a $20 styling fee at time of shipment which will be applied as credit toward anything you decide to keep)
4. Try on your items in the comfort of your own home and decide what you want to keep. (Remember, if you keep all 5 pieces you get 25% off your entire order.)
5. Place the items you do not wish to keep back in the prepaid envelope and drop it in any USPS mailbox.
6. Go to your online profile and check out – be sure to leave specific feedback about what you liked and didn’t like about the items in your shipment. This will allow your stylist to better dress you in the future!
A few other things I like about Stitch Fix:
– You don’t have to hop around to different stores searching for something you’re looking for. If you would like a specific piece of clothing or if you have an upcoming event that you need an outfit for, let your stylist know before scheduling your box.
– You can set your price point wherever you’re comfortable with, so that you will get items that are within your budget.
– Returning items is free. Just use the prepaid, pre-addressed envelope and toss it in any USPS mailbox.
– You can stop at any time. You can schedule recurring boxes (every month, 2 months, 3 months, etc.) or you can request them on demand. You are fully in control.
– The initial $20 styling fee is applied toward anything you decide to keep from your box. It is most beneficial to keep at least one item from your shipment, or you will lose the $20 styling fee.
– If you give honest feedback, as time goes by your stylist will get to know your style better and will send you items that you are more likely to keep.
