Happy New Year Stitch Fix friends! It's time for another fix and this one was lots of fun, though not so fun to photograph. It's getting cold out! My poor little fingers were freezing! This fix came in the mail just before my Christmas trip home to Buffalo, so I took this fix home and had my family help me choose what to keep!
Haven't heard about Stitch Fix yet? You can read a full review and explanation in this post and decide if it's something you're into! Basically you fill out an online profile and the Stitch Fix stylists send you some pieces from their vast collection. There is a $20 styling fee that gets applied to anything you purchase. Personally, I like to set up a Pinterest board for each coming season to help the stylists understand my style and what I've been lusting after.
This month I asked for a blazer for my new job and some cute weekend pieces. The pieces they sent me ranged from - Just what I was looking for - to - Totally not my style. Be sure to read through the entire post for a chance to win a $100 Stitch Fix gift card!!!
First up, this sheath dress from 41Hawthorne. I've been getting at least one item from the Stitch Fix private label each month. This month I got two. While I generally like the pieces from 41Hawthorne, I'm hoping for a little variety next month. This dress was cute, but I wasn't liking the fabric. It felt a little to flimsy for a work dress. I also just scored a few Hugo Boss dresses from the Bloomingdales Outlet recently, so back to California it went.

As far as trends go, the draped sweater hit hard this fall and Stitch Fix is determined to get me to buy a whole bunch of them. Remember the one on the right from two months ago? Or maybe the one in the center looks familiar, I actually own that one. I mentioned these things last month when I sent back the one on the left.
But that didn't stop them from sending me another one! I really loved this one, especially the detail at the wrist, but how long is this aztec draped sweater trend going to last? I couldn't justify keeping this one. You should totally ask for it in your next fix. It was so warm!

Up next we have two major fails. The Papermoon blouse was a weird fit for me, I didn't really like where the pockets were sitting either. I feel like it's more of a summer shirt, sadly it's in a wintery color. No more chiffon blouses during winter please! These pants were also a miss. Look how huge they are on me! Also, I recently dropped a wad of credit at Elie Tahari and I'm pretty set in the trousers department. I haven't had any luck with trousers from Stitch Fix, yet.

The last thing out of my Stitch Fix box was this 41Hawthorne blazer, just what I asked for! It's more of a casual blazer, as it's made from cotton, but the color is beautiful and the ruched sleeves are such a fun detail! I also loved the fit, it cinched in at the waist just perfectly! Totally kept this piece.
