This month I had a totally new stylist which was unexpected, but turned out to be a pleasure. I looked at the clothes before I read the card this time and the clothes were a perfect fit so I didn’t even realize it wasn’t her at first!
My previous stylist was really getting to know me and my taste in clothes when I decided it was time that I pressed pause on my subscription. Now I just tell Stitch Fix when I want a Fix instead of getting them shipped automatically each month. I appreciated the auto-ship feature while I was updating and creating my capsule wardrobe, but I have good foundation of clothing now and only need something new on rare occasions.
BUT WAIT! A Special Discount Code for Stitch Fix!!

STITCH FIX NOVEMBER 2017 REVIEW
1. Toms Classic Alpargata Solid Canvas Slip-On Flats
I specifically asked for these shoes in the note to my personal stylist for my Stitch Fix November 2017 order. I have wanted bright red Toms for years, but it’s rare that I spend money on myself. I’d rather buy my kids something. Is that just a Mom thing?
I have to say I had my fingers crossed that these would fit and I kinda felt like they wouldn’t, but I tried them on and they sure did! The bottoms of these shoes are SUPER slippery though! Seriously, be careful until you’ve worn them for a day. The first day I wore mine I walked across a gravel lot and they’ve been fine since, but I was slipping all over our laminate hardwood at home!
Verdict- Kept! I seriously love these shoes and I think they’re going to last me a long time. I’m so happy to have them for my capsule wardrobe!
2. JAG Karina Side Slit Tunic
I liked this top upon opening the box. I need a couple of longer tunic tops to pair with my leggings collection and I requested that my personal stylist send me some in this November 2017 Stitch Fix box. So I loved the length and I really loved the plaid. Seriously- who doesn’t for this time of year?
The downside to this top is that with it being a button up it puckered and flared open a little bit around the chest area. Maybe I needed to size up, but with the top being an oversized cut it would’ve needed to be tailored to look nice in a larger size.
Verdict- Returned. The price was too much for me AND I literally have an almost identical American Eagle top that I picked up at a yard sale this past summer. That just goes to show that my stylist knows my taste so well! 🙂
3. STS Blue Tayah Skinny Jean
Size- Size 2
LOVED these skinny jeans & the price straight out of the box. I was worried about fit, but impressed when I tried them on and they fit like a glove. I really wanted to keep them, but financially I can only enjoy one item from each of my Stitch Fix boxes- even with a Stitch Fix coupon code.
At first I disliked that these are ankle cut because I’m a fairly tall person and ankle cut pants remind me of those awkward middle school years when I got too tall too fast for my britches. The ankle cut design grew on me the longer I had them on and I would’ve loved to have kept this item, but I really needed to finally snag that pair of red Toms.
4. Olive & Oak Foray Hooded Knit Top
This top is one that I wouldn’t buy or pick out for myself. The color isn’t part of my capsule wardrobe and I try to adhere to those colors since I know they’re my favorites to wear. However, this top was like butter in my hands, y’all. It was SO comfortable! And once I put it on, the fit was sooo cute. I love V-neck tops! It was even long enough to cover my bum and wear with leggings.
Verdict- Returned. Ultimately I decided to return this item as well. As cute and as soft as it was, it was a looser type of knit that I fear will snag easily with my wild boy and his new puppy around. It would be perfect to pair with leggings though. *sigh*
5. En Creme Tarsa Cargo Jacket
I pinned a few images of jackets like this to my Pinterest board for my personal stylist. I was super excited to see this army green cargo jacket in my Stitch Fix November 2017 box. It is exactly what I was looking for in a jacket. The only downside to this coat is that I prefer my jackets to hit me about 2″ longer on my hips. I get really cold in that area so it’s just personal preference.
Verdict- Returned. As much as I would’ve loved to keep my happy little hands all over this perfect coat, I had to send it back. When I can only keep one item, I have to weigh the pros and cons of each one. This would be a fun now and then item, but it wouldn’t get as much use as those beautiful red Toms!
