The “Whole Outfit” Fix & a $75 Stitch Fix Giveaway!

May 11, 2016·

I’ve been doing Stitch Fix for over two years now (and I’ve received over 28 fixes!) I LOVE Stitch Fix and truly, TRULY can’t say enough good things about the service (the customer service, the experience, etc.), the company, etc. Stitch Fix really is AMAZING and is doing so many wonderful things for women all over this country.

But, like I said, now that I’ve been receiving fixes for so long and especially because I’m super picky about what I will invest in (clothing wise) and I have, what I feel, to be a good, solid, wardrobe… I am having a lot of fun being creative with my fixes these days.

Kimberly J. has been my stylist pretty much since the beginning. She was maybe the third or fourth stylist I got before I stuck with her and started requesting her every month. Now, after so many fixes with her as my stylist, she really has a good, strong sense of what I like and don’t like and she also knows when and how to push me out of my comfort zone.

I’ve also gotten to the point with her that I can be really honest when I don’t like something and I can also send her notes asking for weird / unique things!

Now that Stitch Fix carries shoes, I thought it would be fun to request a “whole outfit” fix! You know, basically five items that “complete” an entire outfit or essentially are the makings-ups-of (<—not a word, I realize that…) an entire outfit.

And, as usual, Kimberly J. took my idea and ran with it! It was a fun experiment and I loved that she was game!

Check out what she included in my fix (I even took a picture of her note to me so you can see what her thinking was behind each piece!):

Stitch Fix Review

First up? The Dolce Vita “Darrah Strappy Sandal” – $70

Stitch Fix Review | Shoes - Dolce Vita "Darrah Strappy Sandal"

Oh, you guys. These shoes. SO. CUTE. So, so, so cute. I don’t know how well you can tell from the pictures, but the strappy part is a mint green! They’re really so adorable. …BUT, I have what some would call “big ankles.” Yes, it is true. I do. And, well, the ankle part of these shoes was just a hair too tight and squeezed my feet in awkward places. BUMMER.

If you have skinnier ankles, these are great! If not, you may have trouble like I did. 🙁

Verdict: Return

Street Level “Roxy Cork Clutch” – $48

Stitch Fix Review | Street Level "Roxy Cork Clutch"

This clutch was SO fun and really is made out of cork! I thought it was just a “print,” when I saw it at first… but nope! It’s cork! So cool and so unique. As adorable and unique and fun as this clutch is, I already have a few neutral clutches and really don’t need to add another one to my “arsenal.” Just not a wise purchase for me right now. BUT, doesn’t mean I don’t think the clutch is adorable!

Verdict: Return

Daniel Rainn “Peneloppe Embroidery Print Knit Top” – Size XL – $68

Stitch Fix Review | Daniel Rainn "Peneloppe Embroidery Print Knit Top" - Size XL | Stitch Fix Review | Mavi "Aiden Printed Skinny Jean" - $98 Stitch Fix Review | Daniel Rainn "Peneloppe Embroidery Print Knit Top" - Size XL

Ohhhhh this top, this top, this top! It was love the moment I set eyes on it. I have been searching and searching for a neutral, FLOWY, lacy top that can be easily dressed up or dressed down. It’s been a piece I’ve thought I may never find, but this top is gorgeous. It’s a very soft material and is the perfect amount of flowy and feminine. I’m very much in a “flowy” post-partum stage right now… so anything I can do to draw attention AWAY from my mid-section is golden.

It was a no brainer on this one…

Verdict: Keep!

Mavi “Aiden Printed Skinny Jean” – Size 14 –  $98

Stitch Fix Review | Mavi "Aiden Printed Skinny Jean" - $98

These jeans are SO fun! I have another pair of Mavi jeans from an earlier fix and I’ve always liked the brand. Mavi is actually manufactured in a factory in Turkey that adheres to ethical manufacturing practices / standards! So, bonus! 🙂 

Anyway, these jeans really are adorable, stretchy, and the print is FUN! HOWEVER, my post-partum body isn’t quite ready for them. 🙁 They were just a hair too small and not quite what I could justify keeping… because who KNOWS when they will fit right?!


Verdict: Return

Look by M “Adara Mixed Pattern Scarf” – $34

Look by M "Adara Mixed Pattern Scarf" - $34

This scarf is HUGE (in hindsight, I should have taken a picture to show how big it is… oh well!). It’s almost like a shawl or large, THIN, blanket scarf. It is really cute, but to be honest, I have more scarves than I know what to do with and a few scarves in this color scheme… so it just wasn’t something I need.

Verdict: Return.

SO, even though this fix was a 1/5, I still LOVED it and Kimberly J. did a great job trying out my “whole outfit fix” idea! While I don’t think the scarf really matched the outfit, I see where she was going with it! I do think everything else, had they all fit right, would have been adorable together.

What do you think? Do you like what I kept / sent back? Have you tried anything fun or unique with your fixes?

Now, as a bonus, I’ve teamed up with Stitch Fix to giveaway a $75 gift card to one of my readers! All you have to do is fill out your style profile (which is FREE to do!). Already a Stitch Fix member? That’s cool! Just update your style profile or leave a new note for your stylist! Good luck and happy fixing! 🙂
