Stitch Fix #2 Reveal

I’ve only received 2 stitch fixes thus far, but I’m loving the experience!  I wait to open the box until my mom comes over and then I model (in a very awkward non model way) what I received for my mom and A (and the boys).  It’s a chaotic mini fashion show complete with two adoring adorable fans.

A little blurb about how Stitch Fix works:

You create a style profile through the Stitch Fix website.  Basically you’re asked several questions that define your style – likes, dislikes, preferences.  You select a price range and frequency for shipments.  And whaalah… a box arrives at your door.  You keep what you like and return what you don’t.  There is a $20 styling fee and this is deducted if you choose to keep an item.

A bit of advice if you decide to partake:  Provide your stylist with detailed descriptions of what you like and don’t like and create a Pinterest board that represents your style.

And if you’re interested in trying, please use my referral link!!  I’m all for a $25 credit!

Stitch Fix 2 Reveal (again, apologies for horrible selfies):

The first items I tried on were the Colibri Solid Tab Sleeve Blouse and pants.  The blouse was a pretty burgundy color and I thought it would be great for fall.  But overall I didn’t love it.  It was a bit too long for me and a bit plain for my taste.  I didn’t hate it, but it didn’t wow me.  RETURNED.  I debated these pants for a long time.  You can’t see it in this photo, but they had a very subtle pattern, which I liked.  They fit well, but were a little long on me.  In the end, they were pricey and I didn’t absolutely love them.  Much to my mom’s disappointment (she loved them), these were RETURNED. (I’ll update with the brand name of these pants)

Next I tried on the Cassil Roll Tab top.  Upon seeing this top, my initial thought was, “No way. I don’t wear plaid.”.  I LOVE plaid on the boys, but I just couldn’t picture it on myself.  However, when I tried the top on, I thought it was really cute.  It made me think of pumpkin farms and corn mazes.  Since those are two of my favorite things, I decided to KEEP this one.

I wanted to see how the top looked with a cardigan.
Next up was the blue sweater.  The color was pretty, but everything else about this was wrong for me.  It was too short, too wide, and not at all flattering.  The knit material also seemed like it would snag easily – no bueno with two energetic boys.  Definitely RETURNED.

 Finally, the Eliza Crochet Detail Blouse by Daniel Rainn.  I saved the best for last.  What’s not to love about this one – the colors, the floral pattern, the loose fit, the lace detail.  Quite possibly my favorite Stitch Fix piece to date.  Loved and KEPT.

 So only 2 items kept this time, but the blouse and pants were near misses.


  1. Love the floral too - very flattering on you - you'll get a ton of wear out of it. The plaid's adorable. We just got back from a 2 week beach vaca and I brought along a similar cotton tissue plaid shirt, same color scheme, navy & green, for breezy evening walk ocean strolls. My teenage sons noted and commented on it - they thought I looked cool and 'Seattle'. So weird that they even noticed! I agree with you on the other two shirts. The pants look great in the photos, but only your backside knows for sure how they feel, how they fit! Thanks for the #2 Reveal!

    1. Thank you! I wore the plaid to preschool drop off and felt like a 'cool' mom. ;) Happy your teenager would think the same - if a teen approves, you know it looks good!
