Stitch Fix Reveal #53 // Be My Buyer!

October 27, 2016


Erin Schrader

Here we are again! I swear Stitch Fix is actually sending me a box every 4 days because there is no way in H that it’s been a month already. I’m really over how time flies even faster every year older you get. JUST SLOW DOWN. One second it’s the middle of the afternoon and I’m over here eating a Dairy Queen blizzard and the next minute it’s the next morning and I’m drinking coffee thinking “how is it Thursday already!?” Which brings me to my next point – IT’S ALMOST CHRISTMAS! I’m over here thinking summer is lingering when stores are all ready for the holiday season.

So none of that really had any point to where I was getting but it’s okay, we’re getting there. For this particular 53rd fix of mine I had requested from my stylist to send me items for our Denver and Vail trip. Back when I requested this I was seeing temps of 30 degrees in Vail so I basically asked her to send me 5 blankets. As she does in her typical awesome stylist spirit, she delivered on 5 great pieces to wear there and back at home. The only problem? I have absolutely no clue what I want to keep. So that’s where you all come into play today – if you could so kindly comment below, on Facebook, or Instagram which 2-3 items you would keep, please let me know. I’ve got to check out asap so any help would be much appreciated.

But before we begin here are a few words about Stitch Fix and how it all works if you haven’t read this the 52 other times I’ve wrote about it 😉

1. You start by filling out your style profile – you will complete all sorts of questions on sizing, pricing, preferences, colors, etc. You can also write notes about likes/dislikes. Make sure to link your fashion board on Pinterest so your stylist can see what you like!
2. Order your first fix! Your card will be charged a $20 styling fee however, if you keep any item [one or more] you will be credited back the $20. Because of this I always recommend keeping at least one item or you are essentially giving away $20 for nothing in return. You will receive 5 items [made up of clothing, jewelry, and handbags, whatever you prefer]. I personally only want clothing in my fix so I just always let my stylist know!
3. Decide what you want to keep and what you want to send back [in a postage paid envelope]! You have 3 business days to do so – use this time to try everything on, see what you have in your closet that pairs well with it and don’t be afraid to say yes to something that you wouldn’t normally. That’s what makes Stitch Fix so fun! If you keep all 5 items you will receive 25% off your entire fix, winning!
It should be noted that while I have chosen to receive monthly fixes, this is in no way a subscription service and you are able to decide when you want another fix, whether that be in 6 months or 2 years from your first fix! As always, if you ever have any questions feel free to leave them in the comments section below. Okay, here we go!

1. Emily Rose Melodee Cowl Neck Pullover – Small – $64

leggings [my absolute favorite!] // over the knee boots [30% off!] // purse // floppy hat
Put a cowl neck on anything and I’m sold. Especially on a sweater that is long enough to wear with leggings. Is there really anything else you need in life? Grey is always a perfect winter color as it makes you look a little bit like giant snowflake. A little dirty snowflake but a snowflake none the less. I do love this sweater so when I said I was confused on what I would like to keep, I was partially lying because this is the one thing I am sure of. Please agree.
2. Andrew Marc Risor Quilted Puffer Coat – Small – $168
jeans [25% off! my favorite!] // riding boots [20% off! wearing in cognac/cognac]
I absolutely love this brand of coats [you can see more here and here!] as I have received other Andrew Marc coats in previous fixes. They are so warm and feel so great on. I love the fit of this jacket, the detachable fur detail and of course, the color. I think for this it mostly comes down to the question of if I need another winter coat or not. Realistically the answer is no, however, also realistically I want the answer to be yes. HELP.
3. RD Style Kolding Faux Suede Vest – Small – $78

I can totally appreciate why my stylist sent me this vest, as I had asked for great fall pieces to wear on our trip. However, for some reason this vest just does not seem “me” at all. You know when you come to those moments in life where you are all “WHO AM I?!” I feel like I’m asking myself that question often when I have this on. Do I think it could be adorable on somebody else? Yes. Do I think that person will ever be me? No.

4. Olive & Oak Foray Hooded Knit Top – Small – $54

jeans [possibly size down one] // flats [20% off!]
For starters, I obviously shouldn’t have worn a purple bra with this top. That or I should have worn a tank underneath but who has time for that? This is an exceptionally light hoodie which is kinda nice. I do love the color of it, I just don’t know if I love it enough to pay $54 for it, you feel me?
5. Tart Terra Faux Fur Vest – Small – $158
black sweater [size down, wearing in XS] // jeans [25% off! my favorite!] // booties in coco loco leather  // brown leather purse // over the knee boots [30% off!] // black leather purse
And now for what I think is quite possibly the best for last. I haven’t ever owned a faux fur vest, but now that they sent me this I’m convinced I need like 20 more. Mostly for the blanket factor. This thing is incredibly soft and quite luxurious looking. I feel a little bit like an impostor in it because let’s be real, I’m not fancy but it’s sometimes fun to pretend. I love that you can pair this with black or brown as shown above. I would also love this with an ivory blouse type shirt underneath. So many ideas running through my head.
So there we have it friends! 5 pieces, 5 confused face emojis. Cast your vote for your top 1, 2, or 3 favorites! Thanks in advance – Stitch Fix is so much more fun with you ladies around.
