Fall is finally here! There is a crisp, fresh chill in the air. The leaves have started changing colors and gliding off the trees creating unique, mosaic-like patterns on the ground as they lay. My Uggs and a few other cozy fall items have been pulled from storage with joyful anticipation of fall adventures to come. Fall in New England is the best!
I was so excited to receive my October’s Stitch Fix. I had made some specific notes to my stylist. I wanted a warm, cozy sweater to wear with leggings and boots. A tunic with leggings would be nice. I asked for a black blazer to wear over dresses for church and speaking to groups. I told my stylist that I love receiving dresses but I STRESSED the importance of a sending me dresses with conservative hem-lines (in the past this has been an issue.) Finally, I took time to add a few new pins to my Pinterest Board. I tried to cover all my bases.
When the box arrived, I only had a minute or two to see what was sent. At first glance, I loved everything. I couldn’t wait until the afternoon when I had more time to try everything on. I hoped that the items would fit as good as they looked.
This navy blue, flannel tunic is soft and warm. I paired the tunic with Kensie skinny jeans and my Uggs. The Kensie jeans came in one my first fixes and are still my favorite jeans. They have held up nicely which proves that paying a little extra for better quality clothing goes a long way.
I asked for a black blazer and I got a black blazer. Basic, versatile, comfortable, and well-made. This is the same designer as my favorite skinny jeans. What can I say? It is just what I wanted and my stylist did a great job listening to my notes.
The burgundy color of this dress affirms that fall has arrived. I like the fit and style of the dress. It actually reminds me of a dress I had in high school and I love that. It felt familiar when I tried it on. I first paired the dress with a pair of Sam & Libby’s Bow Flats (from Target) to complete my 1994 look. 🙂 Then, I decided to add ankle boots and the Kensie blazer for a second look. The only thing that I do not like about this dress is the material. It is on the thin side. I am not sure how it will hold up after wear and care. In my opinion, it is also a bit pricy for the quality of the dress.
This is what I love about Stitch Fix! I would have never picked out this item for myself. In the store, I would have said too busy, too much pattern. But at first glance, I loved the colors in the shirt (corals and aqua) and the material felt nice to touch. I was curious to see how it would look on and I was pleasantly surprised. The material is soft and stretchy. Not only does it fits great and it feels good on!
I really did not need to try this on because I had already decided that I was keeping it when I first laid eyes on it. It is a perfectly, cozy, warm, well-made sweater. There is nothing more I can say but open my arms and welcome fall in!

This fix gets an A+. My stylist did a great job taking into account what I wanted and surprising me with a few new looks. The only item I would have sent back (due to the individual cost and quality) is the Kallan Dress but as I mentioned in my last post, if you keep all the items in your fix you get 25% off the total. Economically, it made sense to keep the dress. I will admit that I am not “totally” sad about it though. I love the idea of reliving part of the 90s. 🙂
