Stitch Fix Reviews 2 and 3

If you've never heard of Stitch Fix, you can read more about how it works in my first review here.

I'm behind on my Stitch Fix reviews, so today I'll be doing a review of my last two fixes.

My second fix was just OK.  Of the five items I only kept two.  I asked for warm and cozy sweaters and I received the Moon Collection Alexander Graphic Knit Drape Front Cardigan. The pattern is not my favorite but when I put it on, I was in love and decided to keep it.  It is NOT flattering at all and I'm still trying to get past that.  Here's the best pic of this beauty I can come up with.  

I also kept this SOFT, SOFT Octavia Rickshaw Graphic Print Knit Infinity Scarf.  I already have a chevron one with the same colors but at $34, I decided to keep it.
I requested colored jeans.  I can't wear jeans to work, so wearing colored jeans is my way around this.  The Mavi Gold Nigel Tall Length Skinny Jeans in (olive green) pictured below fit like a glove and felt like butter!!!  I LOVED them but have a pair of pants the exact same color, so I couldn't justify paying $138.  I'd love these in another color and may request them in another Fix.
Also in this box was this Oak & Olive Balton Sleeveless Abstract Print Dress!!!  Hmmmm....I'm still trying to figure out how this fits into my request for "warm and cozy items."   I did try it on but it did NOTHING for me.  So it went back with the jeans.
My final item was this Pink Martini Dennis Textured Knit  Sweater.  It was cute but snug and see-through in parts.  I had no extra room to squeeze a shirt under it, so back it went.
So that's a wrap on my November Fix.  Again, I kept 2 of the items, not too bad.

For my December Fix (which I just got today), I requested distressed, boyfriend jeans and I got these Mavi Ruxin Distressed Boyfriend Jeans.  They fit and feel really good, but I'm not too happy with the dark wash.  I think I'd like them better in a much lighter wash.  My thought right now is that these will be returned.
I requested this exact jacket after a co-worker got it in her last fix.  I was happy they were able to find one for me.  It's the Mystree Kalia Faux Leather Shawl Jacket, if you want to request it too.  I LOVE it!!  It's very well made and has a lot of great texture.  Defiantly a keeper.
I also asked for this Market and Spruce Alan Cowl Neck Asymmetrical Cardigan in a blue or red color, after I saw in another on-line review.  My stylist was only able to get it in this burnt orange color.  I love it for someone else but I'm not sure it's a good color for me.  I'm still undecided on this one.  It can be worn open or zipped up.
Next was the Market and Spruce Fierro Elbow Patch Crew Neck Sweater.  It is nice but I look better in brighter colors and this is a little too plain for me.
And finally, the Market and Spruce Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeved Tee.  This is really thin and plain.  It is a little too big and it just hangs on me.  This will be going back.

You can read about my first Fix here.  BTW, I'm having some buyers remorse from that fix about keeping the Abstract Print Tulip Short Sleeved Shirt it's soooo not ME and the Metal Bauble Necklace.  I've not worn either of them. :-(  I was so excited to get my first Fix that I made some exceptions and kept everything.  I won't let that happen again. To settle  my excitement, I now peek at my items by using the "checkout" button that appears when your Fix ships.  Does anyone else peek?    

If you want to give this Stitch Fix stuff a whirl, here's my referral link.  It's definitely fun and worth the $20 styling fee.  So until next month I'll keep pinning and giving very detailed comments in the notes to my stylist.  I think this is the key to a good fix.  And lots of pinning on Pinterest.  That helps too.  
Let me know what you think of my last two fixes and go ahead and complete your style profile.  It's FUN!!
