October 2016 Stitch Fix #18

Who has time to shop in person these days? Thankfully there are people that will do it for you like the stylists at Stitch Fix.

Stitch Fix

Alrighy folks, it’s time for my October Stitch Fix! This month, I asked for olive or rust color moto jeggings, an oversized sweater or something with shoulder details, a long sleeve dark (but not black) dress, and just fall attire in general. So let’s dig in.

October 2016 Stitch Fix #18

P.S. Some of the jewelry I am wearing is from my other favorite subscription, Rocksbox. If you wanna try it out, use my code ERINBFF367 for a free month.

RD Style Jarryd elbow patch ponco

1. RD Style Jarryd Elbow Patch Poncho / XS / $78: I admit, when I first pull this out of the box I was a big perplexed. Cowl neck? Not usually my thing, Sleeves on a poncho with a flap over them? Completely open sides? Once I figured out how to put it on, I actually was able to make peace with all but the open sides. However, I think all it needs is a tiny stitch at my waistline and it’d be perfect. And I kind of enjoyed it paired with the leggings – more on that below. But $78??

Rune Glynn faux leather detail moto legging

2. Rune Glynn Faux Leather Detail Moto Legging / S / $58: These leggings were not quite what I was looking for. I wanted jeggings with actual pockets and thicker material, you know the kind you can wear as pants, and without any leather detail on them. But that being said I ended up liking these and it was my stylist Hailey’s idea to pair them with the poncho – such a smartie pants. But again that price, it just kills me to spend that much money on leggings. If they were more pant like I would jump on them faster than a freshly baked cookie. Okay maybe not faster than a cookie, but right after. IDK what do you think?

Hailey 23 Joel popover knit dress

3. Hailey 23 Joel Popover Knit Dress / S / $74: Hooray for a dark, long sleeve dress for the cooler months! But dang it, it’s black! I JUST bought a black log sleeve dress (which is why I asked for anything but black). However, it is quite different from the dress I already bought, with the dress itself being a full striped ensemble with that black piece over the top. But I’m not entirely sure I like it enough to justify owning 2 different black long sleeve dresses even if the other is just all black. However, there is a fun feature that I will share in a candid photo at the end of this post. (Necklace is from a previous fix, and why yes those are my beloved purple suede boots <3.)

Loveappella Shasa shoulder detail knit top

4. Loveappella Shasa Shoulder Detail Knit Top / XS / $48: Ask for shoulder detail and you shall receive! Unfortunately, I wasn’t really digging this top. I enjoy plaid but wasn’t a fan of the ribbing as I’ve never found it to be particularly flattering. IDK maybe I’m crazy, am I crazy? This was the least expensive of the batch so there’s that but probably not compelling enough.

41Hawthorn Maxwell lace detail cardigan

5. 41Hawthorn Lace Detail Cardigan / XS / $68: More shoulder detail! But meh, I am not the biggest fan of lace. Admittedly, there has been more than one occasion where this service has lured me into buying a top featuring lace but I don’t think this is one of them. P.S. That tank I’m wearing underneath is actually from my very first fix ever, back before I documented these things, and I still love it to pieces (zipper in the back)!

October 2016 Stitch Fix #18-candid

Overall, not my favorite fix but not bad. I’m contemplating those leggings the most, although the prospect of pretending to flash people in that dress could be an added bonus (I might be a 12 year old boy). I told you it had a fun feature :-P.

What did you like or dislike? Is there anything you would want for yourself? Make sure to tell your stylist!

For more details on Stitch Fix and how it works, check out my post from December 2014 or my past fixes listed below. Also, they now offer Stitch Fix for men! What dude would pass up the opportunity to have clothing sent to him, that didn’t require going to a store or picking them out? I’m surprised they didn’t set this up sooner.

Disclosure: This is not a sponsored post! I pay for these clothes on my own. However, this post does provide referral links for new sign ups which gives me a little credit to go towards my next box. Join me in the journey by signing up HERE

The only thing I even half-way like in this fix is the dress. The leggings are weird, as is the poncho, and the shoulder detail top. To me this whole fix is a bust. Maybe my take on this is because I’m old, but I wouldn’t keep any of it. :-)

Yeah I don’t like ribbing either! That dress is pretty cute-although annoying they sent you black when you requested not black. I also love those leggings but, like you, I’d be balking at paying that much for them.
