Stitch Fix #16-“Fall”in’ in Love

Stitch Fix  #16- Fallin in Love {Domesticated Academic}

Fall is upon us! Ok, so it went from burning hot, humid, drippy summer to a few days of fall and immediately into “we’re getting a butt ton of rain” and possibly the remnants of some hurricane name Joaquin. So long fall, you were short, sweet, and a tease!

I did take some time to pin a few things this month as well, minding my note to the stylist as well. As always, she came through.       I’d like to give a blogger shout out to my stylist this month, Leslie, for being the bomb dot com of my fix. This is the first fix I recall where I truly “liked” everything that came–from the colors and patterns–this was a great fix. Some fit issues kept me from keeping more, but I realize that everyone has a different shaped body.

Liverpool Reagan Skinny Pant- $88

Wanted to love. They fit but I felt like they were too skinny for me. I adored the pattern on these pants and I own another skinny leg pant from Gap but there was too much spandex in these or something.

Brixon Ivy Lawley Cable Knit Open Cardigan-$68

Stitch Fix  #16- Fallin in Love {Domesticated Academic}

I adored this sweater. I love the color and knit that it had. The front lapels that melted into the pockets was amazing. The downfall of this sweater was where it laid on my body, right on my butt. When I caught view of myself in the mirror, I noticed it made my backside look bigger. I’m short so it may lay differently on someone who is a half inch taller or shorter.

Market & Spruce Fierro Elbow Patch Crew Neck Sweater-$58

Stitch Fix  #16- Fallin in Love {Domesticated Academic}

This was a cute sweater. Lightweight black with adorable dark grey patches. It would have been great to wear over a collared shirt to make me the ultimate preppy professor. This sweater laid funny on my hips, hugging my middle and making me self-conscious. It was also a thin sweater, great for layering but I’m not sure if it was $58 worth of sweater. Super cute. If it laid nicer on my hips, it would have stayed no matter the price tag.

41 Hawthorn Kassidy Faux Wrap Dress-$68

Stitch Fix  #16- Fallin in Love {Domesticated Academic}

This dress is perfect for multiple seasons and the pattern was super fun with a beautiful dark red/pink mosaic pattern. I wore this to teach in and received at least three compliments throughout the day. It’s a flattering length and opens just enough at the hem for a slimming effect. I wore this on a muggy fall day with a simple cardigan over it and didn’t need too much jewelry because of the pattern. I’m going to pick up some tights for cooler weather and wear it with short boots.

Market & Spruce Colibri Polka Dot Print Top-$48

Stitch Fix  #16- Fallin in Love {Domesticated Academic}

I loved this top as well. It was really soft with a flattering collar. When I tried it on, it was too snug across the bust and shoulders, making it an automatic “return” item. I loved the pattern. The polka dots weren’t obnoxiously big and this would have worn well under a jacket for a complete outfit. I wanted this to fit! I was so excited when I peeked at my shipment.

Stitch Fix has been a great service for me. I can honestly admit that I’ve cut down on purchasing clothes in general and when I am at Target, I’ll think, “no, a box is coming soon” before I spend money on stuff I won’t wear or just wear a few times. I can honestly say I wear the crap out of my stitch fix pieces. I get compliments on them frequently and the clothes are always interesting and not things I would normally purchase.

No pressure either way. Stitch Fix doesn’t compensate me. I pay the $20 styling fee each month and appreciate what they send me.

Stitch Fix #15-Birthday Fix

I pinned a few things this month to help my stylist along and she delivered! While it was a hit or miss box, I found something I loved and that’s always the goal. I’ll never understand how people are so disappointed when they don’t get a 5/5 EVERY month. I’ve learned to be grateful when I can find one thing I genuinely love and will wear the crap out of and the rest is just good karma.

In honor of my birthday, my stylist sent me a nice variety of things to try on.

Let’s go!

Pixley Felicia Dress-$54

Stitch Fix #15-Birthday Fix! {Domesticated Academic}

Keeper!!! This dress is so soft, it’s forgiving, and it drops at the knee. Totally work appropriate with adjustable straps. I put this on and immediately started scheming how to accessorize it. I wore it the next day to teach in and paired it with a cardigan, fancy sandals, and jewelry. It was comfortable all day to wear.

Romolo Stevie Snake Print Buckle Cuff-$34

Stitch Fix #15-Birthday Fix! {Domesticated Academic}

I wanted to like this, but the gold wasn’t my taste. I generally don’t wear gold, which I didn’t tell my stylist. It also had something poking me in the wrist when it was clasped but I couldn’t figure out what it was. It was fun, but not for me.

Market and Spruce Gil Plaid Dress-$68

Stitch Fix #15-Birthday Fix! {Domesticated Academic}

As much as I wanted to get mad for plaid, I just couldn’t. It was comfortable but too tight across the chest. And plaid…it’s just not my thing.

May Pink Bradwell Off Shoulder Knit Top-$44

Stitch Fix #15-Birthday Fix! {Domesticated Academic}

This was weird. I don’t do off the shoulder. EVER. ANYTHING. Simple, comfortable, and straight forward. Basic black. Just not for me.

Skies are Blue Krishna Cutout Detail Top-$44

Stitch Fix #15-Birthday Fix! {Domesticated Academic}

I pinned this but it was too snug all over. The end.
