My August 2015 Stitch Fix Review


Sniff, sniff. Can you smell it?

Well I can. It’s the smell of fall quickly sneaking up on us! The smell of pumpkin, spices, and that crisp fall air.

It also means that fall fashion is just around the corner. Oh who am I kidding?! Pictures of fall fashion are everywhere now! It’s just not the right weather for it. Which I am TOTALLY fine with. 80 degree weather, you just stick around for quite some time.

Anyways, with fall just weeks away, I took that into consideration when thinking about my August Stitch Fix box. I wasn’t ready to request ALL fall related items, but I did ask for a fall jacket and another pair of Margaret M Emer Pants. The rest….well I let them surprise me!

Might I say too, it was another box really well done. I think my stylist Lauren and I may have a long Stitch Fix future to look forward to. She gets my style the most of any stylist I’ve been given. I am going to specifically request her in my stylist notes for my September box!

Just a quick recap, stitch fix is a personal stylist company that hand picks 5 items based on your style and size. You get assigned your own stylist, and she gets to know your style based on your pinterest fashion board, style profile you fill out online, and feedback you leave on your previous fixes. In turn she hand picks out pieces she think will make you look – and feel – great and sends them to you along with styling advice and a personal note. Love that part so much!

This month I decided to not just give you one video, but TWO! Wahoo! The first video shows my reactions to opening up my box and seeing all my goodies. The second video is me trying on the clothes and giving you my feedback. Hope you like! 🙂

Margaret M Emer Brocade Tall Pant

The pants that I requested! I got my first pair and they were a little too busy for me. Last month I got my second pair and they were just black, but everyone needs a good pair of black pants. So I kept them. This month I got a pair of black brocade pants.

Ahhh! I wish they had sent me these last month! I would have preferred black brocade over just black. But alas, these are SO similar that there is only room in my wardrobe for one pair. So back these went. 🙁

Returned

Blank NYC Minnie Moto Jacket

I requested a fun fall jacket to help transition the season. I suggested a moto jacket with perhaps a little edge. Boom. They nailed it.

This jacket was so fun! Alas, it did not fit. It was very, very tight. It also made it extremely uncomfortable, which is a big no-no for jackets. They have to be uber comfy for me to wear them.

Returned

41Hawthorn Zappo Printed Mixed Material Sweater

Coral and navy! Yes! I loved the pattern on this!

So cute right?! Such a great transitional sweater. However, I have a sweater that is so similar that it just doesn’t make sense to have two of these sweaters.

Returned

41Hawthorn Ava Floral Print Silk Henley Blouse

When I pulled this one out I was over the moon about it! The colors have Megan written alllll over them. Plus, 100% pure silk! The luxury!

I was even more thrilled when I tried it on. This blouse was made for me. The fit was perfect. The feeling was incredible. Welcome to my closet.

KEPT!

Pink Martini Dwight Cross Back Blouse

This top was the one I was most on the fence about. I mean, check out that pattern (plus the white skirt! Wish I had that one too!)

I loved this shirt so much! I had fun dressing it up and down. Unfortunately, it just doesn’t fit my lifestyle. I’m not a huge strappy shirt wearer. This would have been the exception except…budget cuts. Haha. I splurged on the silk shirt so everything else was returned.

Returned

  • First, I loved both of your videos. You do such a nice job with them and it’a great to not only read about what you think about each item, but to also hear all of your thoughts. I agree with the choices you made this month. The blouse you kept is pretty and you’ll be able to wear it into fall with a jacket or sweater over it. Thank you so much for reviewing the Margaret M Emer pants and suggesting that I request them. They are the one thing that I kept this month and I’m wearing them right now.ReplyCancel

    • Thank you so much Paula! I have a lot of fun making the videos! I’m so glad you like the Margaret M Emer pants are working for you too. I bet they will be great for school! Can’t wait to see your next review!ReplyCancel

    Hi! I just read all three of your reviews about the Margaret M Emer pants. They sounds great and I’m in desperate need of some black pants for work. My question is how tall are you? I’m 6 feet tall and just haven’t been able to find skinny black pants that are long enough and flattering. I asked for a pair in my last fix and what was sent was so comfy and fit so well, but we’re WAY too short. (To be fair, my stylist knew they would be too short, but I had asked for some to wear with flats and tall boots. She knew they would work with boots.) I’m trying to gauge if I should ask for the Emer pants. Thanks!ReplyCancel

    • Hey Katie!I am 5’10” and the pants are just the right length on me. I definitely think they would be too short on you. 🙁 I’m sorry! I don’t think I would recommend you trying them; with having two inches on me they would definitely be too short.ReplyCancel
