(Stitch Fix) February 2017 Box #4 Review: Tops Galore!

(Stitch Fix) February 2017 Box #4 Review: Tops Galore!

Another stylist change with my latest Stitch Fix. This is stylist #3 and I wonder if the company is moving away from assigning the same stylist from box to box.  I’m curious what others who have Stitch Fix are experiencing.  For box #4, I requested pant options that I can wear to work.  Too bad, they only sent me one option – I would have liked to try a few pairs.  Instead, I got a bunch of tops that I wasn’t very excited about…

My stylist, Jessica, wrote me a personal note:

Hi Kenia! I this Fix, I sent you some glam new Beyonce inspired pieces that you can dress up or down! The black pants I chose have a trendy twist in the suede look.  This is a major trend this season and gives a fun touch to an otherwise simple piece.  Try these with your new Blu Pepper top.  The rich jewel tone is perfect for the season and the cross front gives it a sexy bit of edge!  Complete the look with black flats and your new jacket!  The moto style is trendy and flattering as well.   The Ecru top I chose has amazing detail and you can wear it year-round.  For now pair it with your new pants and jacket, or wear it with white jeans and the shoes from your last Fix in the Spring.  I also sent you the black top that has a fitted bottom to show off your figure.  Pair this with your new pants, jacket and a bold statement necklace!  Enjoy! Best, Jessica

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Stitch Fix, here’s how it works.

1. Fill out your Style Profile

Begin by filling out the Style Profile. This helps them understand your size, style, shape, budget and lifestyle. Completing your Profile  takes about 10 minutes.

2. Pick the date you’d like to receive your shipment

Select a delivery date from the calendar. At the time your Stylist selects your items, you will be charged a $20 styling fee. That $20 will be applied as a credit toward anything you keep from your shipment.

3. Try everything on in the comfort of your home

Make sure you to try on everything our Stylists have picked for you because you never know what will look great on you. Create new outfits by pairing what’s in your shipment with items that are already in your closet.

4. Buy what you like and return the rest

Take three days to decide what you’ll purchase and what you’d like to send back. You’re only charged for items you choose to keep when you check out.

Check out by logging into your account to pay for the items you want to keep. The $20 styling fee will be applied as credit toward any items you purchase. If you buy all five items,  you get 25% off the entire  purchase

Simply return the items you don’t want in our prepaid mailer and drop it into any USPS mailbox. Stitch Fix provides free shipping both ways as a benefit of using the service.

******************************

So here are the items that Jessica sent me based on my style profile and my request for this box! Stitch Fix recommends that you try everything on because you might feel differently about it once on your body.  So, that’s exactly what I did!

Market & Spruce Elissa French Terry Moto Jacket.  Price to keep: $78.00

Level 99 Mora Sueded Skinny Pant.  Price to keep: $114.00

The jacket is ok — something I might wear to and from the gym. I don’t imagine I’d wear it anywhere else.  It’s soft and very comfortable to wear, but not for Winter. The asymmetrical zipper is very much on trend right now.  I have another gray jacket that is similar to this one that I purchased from my Wantable subscription, so no need to buy this one.

STATUS: RETURNED

I like the black pants.  They feel like suede and the quality is good.  I just don’t need another pair of black pants.  I asked for pants to wear to work. While these certainly fit the bill, I would have liked a few options to choose from.

STATUS: RETURNED

 

Blu Pepper Ellisen Cross Front Knit Top.  Price to keep: $44.00

 

This sweater has very nice flower embroidery detail at the sleeves.  The burgundy color is deep and very pretty. It is on the thin side, but flows a little when you move. The cross front is not all that interesting to me and, with the plunging neckline, I’d have to wear a camisole with this unless I’m going to a party or out for a night on the town.  I considered keeping this, but I don’t it and I don’t need it.

STATUS: RETURNED

 

Ecru Murray Embellished Strap Silk Blouse. Price to keep: $178.00

   

The detail on this camisole is very lovely!  The straps are made of these long beads and the top comes with a bag full of extras in case some drop off, I guess.  I love the style of this, but I don’t love the weird blue color. Because of the color,  I’ll have limited options for styling it. Also, the price is a little steeper than I’m willing to pay for something like this. 

STATUS: RETURNED

 

41Hawthorn Queensland Dolman Jersey Top. Price to keep: $$48.00

 

 This black top is a nice basic piece to add to my closet. The fitted bottom gives a chic look and this is easy to dress up or down. The fabric is a very soft stretchy/clingy material — very comfortable.  I can’t really go wrong with keeping this and I don’t want to lose my $20 styling fee, so this one is a no brainer!

STATUS: KEPT

  

So this is the first Fix that I’ve really been disappointed with.  The items were fairly blah and I didn’t get what I asked for. Hopefully, the next box will live up to other boxes I’ve received from this company. Let me know what you think!

How do you rate these items in this Fix?
