New Year 2016 Stitch Fix Review and Giveaway!

stitch fix review 2016

Winter break was busy, loud and full of spontaneous fun mixed in with a lot of little whining voices. I’d like to say that I look forward to winter break with all my kids home but if I’m being completely honest, I need another snow day like I need another Chuck E. Cheese’s birthday invite. I just don’t have much left in me this January. That’s why my January Stitch Fix box was especially welcome in the New Year! A lil’ something just for me.

I LOVED this fix. Which may seem weird because I only ended up keeping one thing, but I really loved the options my stylist Lucy sent.

What is Stitch Fix? Go here.

Signs it’s time to give Stitch Fix a try:

  •  you loathe dressing room lighting
  • you don’t usually try new things or styles
  • you are wearing sweatpants while you’re reading this
  • you love getting packages in the mail
  • you have a special event coming up and need an outfit
  • you don’t want a sales person telling you how great something looks on you while you stand awkwardly in a three-way mirror
  • you would rather pay a little more for a few things you really like, than a bunch of stuff you found on a clearance rack

Still not convinced? Be sure to enter my giveaway below, and you could win a $20 styling fee to try Stitch Fix on me!

Here are the goodies in this month’s Stitch Fix box:


RD Style Checkered Cardigan Stitch Fix

Sal Checkered Open Cardigan

RD Style Sal Checkered Open Cardigan ($78)

Loved this! It is so soft and cozy and while boxy, the fitted sleeves were a great touch. I ended up returning this because the sleeves were a little short on me and I was put off by the price tag.

Verdict: Returned

Evie Draw String Funnel Neck Sweatshirt Stitch Fix

Loveappella Evie Draw String Funnel Neck Sweatshirt ($64)

If you follow other Stitch Fix reviewers, you’ve seen this sweatshirt in several colors. It’s soft and pretty thin, and it’s just plan comfy. I know I would wear this, but I ended up returning it because it was just a basic and I didn’t think the thin material would wash well. I can see why this shirt is so popular though!

Buy a similar style here!

Verdict: Returned

Stitch Fix Market & Spruce Poncho

Market & Spruce Cilia Cowl Neck Poncho

Market & Spruce Cilia Cowl Neck Poncho ($78)

I asked my stylist for a poncho to try, I haven’t jumped on the poncho trend and I wasn’t sure how I would feel about the look. The idea of wearing a blanket sounds fabulous though. This was a great basic style poncho but in the end it just felt like a lot of fabric for my 5 foot 4 in frame. Just not my look. But if you’re looking for a poncho, I think this would be a great one to try.

Verdict: Returned


Stitch Fix Bryden High Rise Jean

Just Black Bryden High Rise Distressed Straight Leg Jean

Just Black Bryden High Rise Distressed Straight Leg Jean ($88)

YOU GUYS. These are the jeans. High waisted jeans are the best thing to happen to mamas since those little applesauce pouches were invented. These are so super soft, a little distressed and fit like a dream. I have worn them three days in a row now. You need these jeans. As my stylist noted on my style card, “these jeans have a straight fit through the leg and a high rise, making them more flattering than super baggy boyfriend jeans.”  Pin these bad boys.

Boot are Lucky, you can find there here!

Verdict: Kept


stitch fix moto vest

Pixley Malynn Asymmetrical Soft Moto Vest

Pixley Malynn Asymmetrical Soft Moto Vest ($58)

This is a great, comfortable vest with a little edgy style. I was close to keeping this one because it’s so cute but it is very similar to the jacket I kept from my last fix.

Target has a very similar style for under $20! Buy it here

Verdict: Returned

And now for the really fun part, a $20 Stitch Fix gift card giveaway!

  1. I need to get rid of almost everything in my closet! After a couple months of Stitch Fix, I’ve realized that most of what I own doesn’t actually fit or flatter…

  2. I need to get rid of my clothes that I have hung on to (for no apparant reason) since college. That was 3 kids and many years ago!!

  3. The jeans look so comfortable, but I’m just not ready for jeans that come with holes in them. With my lifestyle, I seem to create holes myself – no need to start with them! 🙂 Speaking of which, there are probably a few pairs of destroyed jeans in my dresser that I should get rid of!

  4. I just pinned those jeans! Very nice. I do have that funnel neck sweatshirt in pink and I love it! It does wash/dry just fine and it did not shrink. In my own closet, I need to get rid of sweaters with built in blouses underneath.

  5. Just did a closet clean out and got 2 bags worth. Trying to use capsule wardrobes, but so hard with all the fun stuff from stitch fix. And it doesn’t help that I wear scrubs. ?

  6. Good fix!
    I need to get rid of all my stained clothes. And the ones with holes…ah, the life of a mother!!

  7. Cute fix! I received the Evie this month, too, and kept it. Love the jeans and will definitely consider them as a request for a future fix.

  8. I love those jeans. My closet is full of things I never wear but can’t seem to get rid of for one reason or another. I especially need to get rid of the things I’ve had forever and still have price tags on!

  9. What I need to get rid of in my closet… things I never where, that are too big since I lost weight.

  10. I don’t have anything to get rid of, but that’s because I just did a major overhaul of my closet. It is currently filled with only things that fit and I love.

  11. LOVE the sweater! I have been toying around with the idea of joining Stitch Fix for about a month now. I need just sit down and do it.

  12. I am have been back and forth trying to decide if I should try Stitch Fix. I think I may just have to try it.

  13. I’ve been cleaning out my closet each month – getting rid of clothes I don’t wear – dresses that don’t fit, old sweaters, shoes I don’t wear.

  14. Great fix! I love high waisted jeans too. I’m hoping to get the Loveappella Evie Draw String Funnel Neck Sweatshirt in a future fix!

  15. I need to get rid of a lot of things in my closet! LOL, I’m actually working on it. I’ve lost 33 pounds, so I am slowly getting rid of things and trying to rebuild my wardrobe with StitchFix! I love it!!

  16. I need to get rid of clothes that are 10+ years old…yes, I said it…that old! I have clothes still from High School that I hang on to…”just in case” but really? am I going to ever wear them? NOPE!

  17. Awesome fix! I love those jeans! Too bad about the first sweater, it looks so incredibly cozy! And I’ve been thinking about asking for a poncho! I really need to get rid of a bunch of old outdated dress tops (button-downs) in my closet. I can’t fit into them anymore after having kids!
