Stitch Fix #17 Review - Knoxville, TN. - October 2015

Wow! I can't believe this is my 17th Fix and I have to say that I think this has been the hardest Fix to decide what to keep and what to send back.
My Note To MyStylist
This month, for a couple of reasons I left my fix up to chance. I didn't make any specific requests. I'd seen so many adorable fall sweaters being posted on the StitchFix Facebook Page that I was sure this month would be a great month to just let things happen naturally...

That being said... This is the letter I WISH I'd written to my Stitch Fix stylist!

Dear Stitch Fix Stylist, - Please send me some of the amazing sweaters, knit tops, and scarves and dresses I'm seeing up and down the Stitch Fix blog these days. Please look at my blog and Pinterest board for inspiration. And please oh please send me stuff I'm going to love and want to keep.  With Love - Lili

But alas, I didn't send that note, so I have no one to blame but myself.

My Stylist's Note To Me
Dear Lili, I really enjoyed styling this Fix for you! I spent a lot of time reading your feedback from your previous Fixes, and checking out your Pinterest -and I think you will love all of these pieces! Our Kamile dress from Gilli is a different silhouette than you've received before. Pair it with the Barboza jacket and add some long layered necklaces. I noticed you had our cold-shoulder trend pinned a few times- our grey and black version is great for date night with skinny jeans and boots. The pattern on our Ivy Blouse is fun, without being too young. Accessorize almost any outfit with this simple and beautiful silver bracelet. I'm looking forward to your feedback. Have fun trying everything on! -Kandida

Size: Too Big | Style: Like it Price: Just right | Fit / Cut: Just okay
As you can see this is a super simple cuff bracelet.  My first impression was that it was a definite keeper.  I kept it on while trying everything on and taking photos and even with it pushed as small as it will go the cuff kept rolling around the wrong direction and getting caught on everything. So now I'm really rethinking keeping, even though the price is awesome!

Size: Just right | Style: Just ok Price: To high | Fit / Cut: Just right

When I pulled this out of the box I thought 'this looks like curtains'
And after a quick google search....
I found these aphulstry patterns from House Hackney
That said every blouse deserves a try on. It was super dark with dark wash skinny jeans and my Cole Haun boots...
So I added my super soft Market & Spruce Lauderdale Knit Cardigan from Fix # 12
It definitely lightened everything up but I'm still not sold.

And just in case you think I'm a pattern hater...
 I LOVE this...
 and this..
and this... 
SEE I don't hate all patterns!

Size: Just right | Style: Hate it Price: Just right | Fit / Cut: Hate it

First of all I was a little confused because once again it was a dark outer layer just like 
This Market & Spruce Chaplin Hooded Anorak Cargo Jacket from Fix #10
and this LATTE Jovani Twill Jacket from Fix #16

Maybe I need to go back through my style profile to be sure I haven't accidentally asked for "lots of dark outer layers".  That said I was super excited about this jacket because it's so soft and as I've said before I'm a total sucker for SUPER SOFT!!!  
Once I had it on I was a little disappointed because it had no structure.
it sort of looked rumpled and messy.

Size: Just right | Style: Love it Price: Just right | Fit / Cut: Love it

You already got a little peek at this cutie in the photos of the jacket. 
...but you'll probably agree without the jacket is way better than with.
With a couple of layering necklaces and those same Cole Haun boots and I think we have a winner.
I did try it on with the Mavi Kalie Denim Jacket from Fix #9 as the Style card suggestedand I think its a better outer layer option.
Also, with a quick google I found that it also comes in RED!!!

Size: Just right | Style: Like it Price: Just right | Fit / Cut: Like it

When this top appeared on the Stitch Fix blog in maroon I squealed a little and pin it right away. 
I actually like the fit and cut of this one better than the one I pinned.  My only concern is the color this gray and black jersey pattern reminds me of a sweatshirt.
I think the shoulder cut outs are super flattering!
In the long run I could see myself regretting it if I sent this back.

So after all that can you totally see how this fix was super hard to decide... Should I keep or should I send back?  Each of the pieces has something I loved but as I've said before, as much as I LOVE getting the Keep All 5 Discount, I really want to LOVE my clothes!

What is Stitch Fix ?
How Does It Work
It really is FANTASTICALLY EASY! The Stitch Fix Q&A page does a GREAT job explaining everything but the basics are... Fill out your Style Profile. Pick the date you’d like to receive your shipment. you'll pay a $20 styling fee before each fix which is applied to anything you purchase. Your "Fix" will arrive on your doorstep. (My mail lady actually hand delivered one of my Stitch Fix packages just so she could ask me what it was.) Once you have your package in hand, try everything on in the comfort of your home (you have 3 days). After you've had time to try everything on and see how each piece will work you log on to Stitch Fix.com and buy what you like and return the rest. You’re only charged for the items you keep when you let them know what you’re keeping and returning at Check Out. **DON'T FORGET*** The $20 styling fee will be applied toward any items you purchase. Also, ALL Stitch Fix clients enjoy free shipping both ways!

Buy All 5 Discount
One of the best parts about Stitch Fix is that if you choose to purchase all of the clothes in your fix, your order is automatically discounted 25%!

Get "Pinning"
According to Katrina Lake Stitch Fix founder and CEO 
"Pinterest is by far the most helpful. It's super interesting, and there's a lot of overlap with our audience. Even if you have nothing about fashion on your Pinterest board, you can learn so much by what people are pinning on their decor boards or DIY boards. It gives you a peek into what someone's life is like." - Q&A interview by Dana Hull, with the San Jose Mercury News
