Second Stitch Fix

I gave Stitch Fix another shot. This time, they sent me three shirts, a pair of pants and earrings. I won’t go into packaging details since you can read about that on my first Stitch Fix post.

The only piece I will be keeping from this Fix are the pants.

KUT FROM THE KLOTH
Jilian Straight Leg Pant


These are Kut From The Kloth brand straight leg trousers. They fit perfectly and are the perfect length for petites. I love how they’re so comfortable and the army green color is something I don’t already own.

The next piece I received is the 41Hawthorn blouse.

41HAWTHORN
Ellie Printed 3/4 Sleeve Blouse

It is 100% polyester and 3/4 sleeve. This was the only shirt from this Fix that I somewhat liked. But it was a little too trendy for me. I don’t see myself wearing an elephant print shirt too often.

HUMMINGBIRD
Liara Knot Front Knit Top


This was the weirdest shirt. Everyone who saw it questioned the knot on the front. Not my style but I liked the modal/poly blend fabric.

Z SUPPLY
Tamika Knit Top


Z Supply shirt cotton/poly blend. Was only okay. I don’t like horizontal stripes and it was a bit too casual for the price.

GORJANA
Chloe Small Stud Earrings

These Gorjana earrings are something I would actually wear. But the price was a bit steep for just plain earrings. I have a ton of these kind and don’t need anymore.

Overall, I have to say this Fix was just about the same as my first one. I will keep the pants but everything else will go back. I’m not sure if I’ll do another Fix but we shall see!

Free Sample Boxes from PINCHme

I wanted to share an awesome sample site that I’ve been a member of for four years. It’s called PINCHme. They offer samples usually on alternate Tuesdays at noon. Sometimes you’ll get a full-sized sample and sometimes it’s a travel-size. All the ask is that you log back in after you receive your box and provide feedback on the items.

This is the last box I received. Isn’t it amazing?

Here are some of the boxes I’ve received in the past.

Nutiva Coconut Oil Deal at Amazon

There’s a great deal on organic coconut oil on Amazon right now. The 1-gallon size (184 ounces) Nutiva Organic Coconut Oil is on sale for $18.79. This will last a long time, although I’ve been using coconut oil for almost everything so maybe not as long.

The refined version does not taste or smell like coconut but it still has most of the benefits of unrefined coconut oil. It is still organic and of course, non-GMO.

This is a better deal than other coconut oils on Amazon right now!

My Stitch Fix

A $25 Stitch Fix credit appeared on my Tmobile Tuesday app last week. I’ve heard a couple of coworkers and friends try this wardrobe-building service but I never looked deeply into it. Alas, a reason to try it!

After creating an account and answering a lengthy number of questions about “my style”, I was informed a box of five items will be delivered to me within a week. It took five (business) days to the box to my doorstep. A simple, brown box with the Stitch Fix logo taped on the seams was waiting for me yesterday.

Upon opening it, I noticed a nice inner design on the box and my items were tightly packed with heavy duty tissue paper and a green sticker. There was also an envelope in which were details about my Fix and a receipt.


Let’s take a look at what was in my Fix!

FUN2FUN
Eloisa Split Neck Blouse


Price on invoice: $38

My opinion: probably the only item that I liked aside from the sleeveless aspect. It has a cute pattern, it’s light and flowy for the summer, and it fits good.

RENEE C
Caliban Split Neck Top

Price on invoice: $48

Did not try this on. Print is average, as is the price. I like the material but I don’t see myself wearing this. It will likely be returned.

SKIES ARE BLUE
Strucker Mixed Material Top

Price on invoice: $54

The only thing I might keep out of the box. I don’t like the price or the color. I could probably get a top I truly love from Zara at less than this shirt costs.

TRIBAL
Fia Trouser

Price on invoice: $58

These pants are navy blue – almost black in color. I dislike the material – a cotton, poly, spandex blend. They were also too long even though I had marked petite sizes in my Style Profile.

DEAR JOHN
Finnegan Roll Cuff Chino Short

Price on invoice: $58

Now. I specifically marked “never” on my Style Profile under the shorts category. I’m a little confused as to why I received so many items I did not have interest in. (Sleeveless, pants, shorts). Needless to say, this will be sent back.

I need to mail back my unwanted items by Thursday so that gives you three full days to try on and decide what you want. You have to review your Fix on their site and select what you like/don’t like about all the pieces. You only get charged for what you keep plus a $20 styling fee if you do keep anything. Shipping is free both ways and a USPS bag is already included.

This box was mostly a fail. I can’t justify keeping any of these items if I only slightly like them. I honestly thought after knowing everything I like to wear and would never wear, along with a personal note to my Stylist, they’d have pinpointed specific pieces that suit me.

I’m hoping my Stylist will be able to pack a better box the next round. Here’s to some nice summery outfits in my future!
