October Stitch Fix Review

Why hello! It’s been a while since I’ve ordered a Stitch Fix box and done a review. We moved and it was so relaxing. ::insert eye roll::  It forced me to touch everything we own (yikes – where does all the stuff come from?). I did some serious purging of my closet and decided I didn’t really need anything new for the summer.

Fall is another story, and I had to have another fashion fix. I requested a pair of jeans, some layering pieces and some casual sneakers from my stylist. I should note that this box came at the perfect time, on the day that I needed it most. The Stitch Fix Gods were looking out for this haggard mama who needed to feel like an adult again and get out of workout clothes.

If you’re new to Stitch Fix, I’ll break it down for you. Stitch Fix is an online, personal clothing stylist service.

Step One: Fill out a style profile. This will narrow down your preferences on things like how you like your clothes to fit, what colors and styles you would like to wear, etc. Then, you are assigned a stylist who personally selects five items for you to try on at home.

Step Two: Order your first fix! You pay an initial $20 styling fee and that fee goes toward any purchases you make. You can pick the date you want it delivered.

Step Three: Decide what you want to keep and what goes back. Returns are easy, you just pop them back in the mail in a prepaid envelope. And, if you happen to keep all five items, you get a 25% discount. Winning.

Some of my most loved pieces in my closet come from Stitch Fix, and my stylists always get me to try new things I wouldn’t normally think of trying on if I was shopping in a store. My favorite part about the service is that you don’t have to sign up for a reoccurring delivery, you can try it once, or get a box as often as you want. There is no commitment. Yay. So, are you going to try it?

You can get a good idea of all the styles Stitch Fix is delivering by visiting my Stitch Fix Reviews board on Pinterest. Or, take a look at my past Stitch Fix reviews.

Alright, let’s get into my review for this fall fix. Some lovely colors! I had to take these pictures in my garage because we are still in the middle of a transition, until we move into a new house – hopefully next month!

Fall Stitch Fix Review



Loveappella Shasa Shoulder Detail Knit Top ($48)

(Also seen on the hysterical Erin here; and this spiffy cookie, also an Erin)

Love the olive, love the plaid shoulder detail. A little on the thin side but I like to wear tanks under shirts anyway.

Verdict: Keep

Olive & Oak Lorenzo Split Back Top ($58)

(Also seen on Erica – does she look like Tiffany Amber Theissen or am I crazy?)

I love plaid and these colors are perfect. I thought for sure this would be a keeper but the split back just didn’t work on me. It stayed open too big and it just felt all wrong. Like I kept getting a cold draft on my backside wrong. I thought for sure this would check all the boxes: cute, check; comfortable, check; covers muffin top stomach, check. In the end, it just wasn’t meant to be.

Verdict: Return

41Hawthorn Shara Herringbone Vest - Stitch Fix October

41Hawthorn Shara Herringbone Vest ($68)

(Also seen here on Stephanie; and here on Erin)

I wanted to like this because it’s classic and who doesn’t love a vest? But it was kind of blah and boxy on me. I know this is super popular style but I tend to wear a lot of neutrals so I think a colored vest like navy or a merlot color would have been a better fit for my wardrobe. Also, the only other vest I own is black.

Verdict: Return

Edison Mayfare Bootcut Jean - Stitch Fix October

Edison Mayfare Bootcut Jean - Stitch Fix October

Edison Mayfare Bootcut Jean ($98)

These remind me of my college days (Go Ducks!). I am old.  I mean, Luke Perry is on the cover of the AARP magazine and he was my TV crush as a teenager. I am getting really old. I remember saying I would never wear skinny jeans when boot cut jeans were still the rage. Ha!

Well, these fit great but it just wasn’t love. I love the boot cut and I think it’s a flattering look for anyone. However, they weren’t quite the right length and I don’t trust myself to actually get them hemmed. I tried them with some boots but they were too short, and I think they are a bit too long for the low wedge I paired them with. I’m going to hold out on getting some boot cut jeans until I find the perfect pair.

Verdict: Return

SeaVees Baja Slip On Varsity Sneaker ($88)

SeaVees Baja Slip On Varsity Sneakers - Stitch Fix October

These are right for someone, but not for me. I love mustard. I love sneakers. But no. Not a cinderella moment.

Verdict: Return

Overall, I think my stylist did a great job on this fix because she included all the things I asked her to: sneakers, jeans and fall layers.

Now don’t forget that Stitch Fix is now available for the special men in your life!

Until next time!

  1. Thanks Erica! You are just adorable and I love your reviews. I think the mustard shoes are super cute and I wish I could pull them off. I think my ankles are just too white 😉

  2. I was so happy to see a notification that you’d linked me on your site! Thanks so much! I actually loooooove those mustard shoes! Bummer that the flannel didn’t work out. I was a bit skeptical about the fit of it too! And yes… I get the Tiffani Amber Theissen thing a lot. I don’t really see it but take it as a compliment! Ha! So thank you! So happy to have found your site! Have a great Tuesday. 🙂
