I have been meaning to update you about my last fix, in which I requested FIVE PAIRS OF SHOES! I was hurtin’ pretty bad for some new fall/winter shoes, so I figured letting Stitch Fix pick some for me to try was more fun than going to the store.
Well, that request fell a bit flat because Stitch Fix has a limit of sending one pair of shoes per fix. This makes 1000% sense because five pairs of shoes is a lot bulkier and more expensive to ship than five regular clothing garments. They cover shipping on both ends, so I completely understood when they kindly emailed me to let me know that they couldn’t fulfill my request.
I love love love this company though because not only did they ask if I had any specific requests for my one pair of shoes, but the customer service rep and I also ended up emailing back and forth a bit about Switzerland! She knew we were about to leave for our Europe trip, and because she’s been to Lucerne before, she offered up some of her personal recommendations. It was so personal and sweet!
I wasn’t able to do a blog post about my September fix, but here were the two things I kept. I am obsessed with the booties they sent! I asked for brown booties with a small heel and in a material that was water-resistant.
For this November fix, I requested pieces that would work well for upcoming holiday dinners. This is why the color scheme is all roughly the same! Here’s a look at what I received. 🙂
Stitch Fix November 2018
I like this cardigan because it’s thick and cozy, but I’m not totally in love with it. I’ve said a zillion times that I only keep pieces that I’ll be excited to pull out of my closet time and time again, and this one just isn’t anything special. I think it’s cute, but I don’t need it. If it were longer and covered my booty, I would have totally kept it. Verdict: Return
I could list a handful of things I don’t like about this top, but ultimately it’s a summery top (IMO) that should be worn with leggings, and I won’t be wearing leggings in the summer, soooo… this one was probably one of the easiest garments I’ve ever sent back. Also, it has to be ironed, and I do not buy clothes that have to be dry cleaned or ironed. I like clothes that are worn, washed, hung back up, repeat. 😉 Verdict: Return
This top was so hard to send back! It’s buttery soft and absolutely the most perfect fit. I could see myself pulling this out of my closet constantly. For basic tops like this though, I usually spent $10-$15 at Old Navy, and this top was about $35. Not a bad price at all, but because it doesn’t have anything special about it, I knew it was a good idea to send it back. I’ll miss this one, but our bank account says “well done”. 😉 Verdict: Return
I have been wearing my several-year old white slip-on Converses constantly lately, and I’ve wanted another pair of neutral slip-on shoes to wear with skinny jeans and leggings when it’s a bit too warm for boots. (I love Alabama winter!)
I requested just that, so my stylist sent these along! I’ve never had Toms before, so keeping them was a bit outside of my normal style. I wore them around the house for a few hours and love them. I’ve worn them almost every day since too, including around the whole neighborhood on Halloween. I really, really like them! Verdict: Keep!
Finally, I was feeling a bit “if-y” about this sweater when I pulled it out of the box, but I really liked it when I put it on. It fit so well! I have said before that I’m really drawn to garments that look “basic” among a crowd, but have just a little something that make it unique. The back of this sweater sealed the deal. I think it’s such cute detailing!
I had a kind follower on IG send me a message about this sweater regarding the “tricky-ness” of this sweater to wash, so I’ll be extra careful to hand wash this on cold and hang dry it. 95% of my Stitch Fix clothes are still the most durable clothing I own, so I am hoping this sweater lasts for several years. I plan to wear it on Thanksgiving day if it’s sweater temp. 🙂 Verdict: Keep!
Give Stitch Fix a try!
You should try Stitch Fix! Seriously, it’s a whole family affair around here. We save so much time and money not worrying about making sure we have clothes for x, y, and z events, and it’s fabulous! I’ve been a client for almost four stinkin’ years. Four! Isn’t that crazy? Why have I not bought stock in this company yet? LOL.
Create a Stitch Fix profile here and request your first box for you and/or your loved one! There’s a $20 fee that’ll be charged to your card when your box ships (IT’S OFTEN WAIVED, SO CHECK TO SEE!), but they’ll apply that fee to the item(s) you decide to keep. Dislike it all? Send it back in the pre-paid bag and eat the $20. But I’m pretty sure you’ll like at least one thing. 🙂

Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother in today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to two little girls (ages 5 and 2) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
