It’s been a while, Stitch Fix. Ya’ll know my ups and downs I’ve had with Stitch Fix. It seems like they used to get me so well in my first boxes. However, lately Stitch Fix has been a little underwhelming. Yes, I always note that I’m a stay at home mom. And yes, I do ask for casual pieces. But that shouldn’t mean boring! Come see what’s in my latest Stitch Fix Style Subscription box, and what I thought of each piece.
For this month’s Stitch Fix, I really asked them to blow me away. I threw out my budget and I asked for statement pieces that were trendy but not over the top. When it comes to style, I requested less vanilla and asked that they go more bohemian inspired this time around. I love that Stitch Fix does all the shopping and shipping for me. As a work from home mom of two boys, I just don’t always have the time OR patience to brave the malls.
Because of that, online shopping is my best friend. But its pretty awesome to have a personal shopper, just for me, from Stitch Fix. They can take my measurements and requests into consideration, and it’s all on them to browse, shop, choose, and everything. All I have to do is open my Stitch Fix subscription box, try it all on in the comfort of my own home, and then send it back to them with the pre-made return packaging. I have several days to try on the pieces they choose with pieces I already own, which is awesome. That way I can always make sure the pieces from Stitch Fix will work with what’s already in my wardrobe!

What was in my December Stitch Fix:
Here is everything that was in my Stitch Fix subscription box this month! I just got it yesterday, so help me decide what to keep and what to return! Although, there’s no question about the dress – that puppy is getting returned ASAP…
NINE BRITTON Cassiar Cut Out Detail Knit Top SIZE: M $42
I’m iffy on this one. I wish this Nine Britton Cassiar Cut Out Detail Knit Top was as marigold as it looked in the picture. The color is just not something I would normally pick. There are flecks of brown / grey, and it almost has a tint of greenish to it? The fabric is really soft but also REALLY thin. So basically, every little bump, etc from my bra, “fluff”, etc shows. I know the shoulder cut out detail is really ‘big’ right now, but I just don’t think it’s me.
The cropped length is super cute though! And I love the little perma-tie that’s going on at the front of the waist. The biggest factor that’s making me want to return it is the color as well as the shoulder cutouts. I just don’t think they’re flattering. I also got an off the shoulder in my last Stitch Fix, and made a note that the style did NOT work for me, so I was a little surprised to see this in my Fix.
VIGOSS Peony Distressed Frayed Hem Skinny Jean SIZE: 10 $68
This is another iffy piece in the box. At first look, I was really intrigued. I love the raw, frayed hem of these Vigoss Peony Distressed Frayed Hem Skinny Jean. I have a pair of Joe’s with the same hem and wear them constantly. The stretch of these Vigoss skinny jeans is fantastic. They move with me really easily, which is great. However, the waist band was too big, so they just didn’t stay up. I have also come to discover that high waisted are my best fit, and these were a much lower rise than what I feel is most flattering.
The color of these skinny jeans was great, a flat black, and I really liked the slashes at the knees. On the tag, it says these Vigoss jeans are slimming and shaping and hold their shape all wear long, but within the first outfit change, it already kind of felt like they were getting looser, so I would definitely need to size down.
Verdict: RETURN. Pretty sure? I just know I would never grab them, as they’re too low rise and I would need a size smaller.
PINK CLOVER Nouri Duster Cardigan SIZE: M $46
This is SO me. I love this Pink Clover Nouri Duster Cardigan! My husband’s first words when he saw me pull this out of the Stitch Fix box were – oh that looks like you! It’s a marled grey, which is super neutral. And neutral = versatile, which is a must in my book! I wear some type of cardigan every single day, so I’m really picky about my fabric, weight, and fit. While I’m slightly nervous of the snag factor, this duster cardigan seems really well made and like it’ll hold up well. I can easily see this working with jeans and a tank or tee, or over a dress. Pretty sure it’d be easy to dress up or down, too, which is always great!
Verdict: MAYBE KEEP?
VIGOSS Rita Faux Suede Jacket SIZE: M $78
Easily the piece my husband was most excited about in this month’s Stitch Fix. And not gonna lie, I was really excited to try this one on too. It feels JUST like suede, but really lightweight. I love the knit underneath the arms – it feels like its a lot more movable because of this. Just everything about this jacket is awesome to me. I love the color – its kind of grey, kind of green, kind of neither. The asymmetrical zipper and hem line give me all the heart eyes. And I love that the hardware is gold rather than silver.
I was literally 100% ready to check out with this jacket and pay the $78. BUT, then I googled. And it turns out that Maurice’s sold / is selling this EXACT same jacket in different colors for $49.99. AND it’s actually currently on sale on their website for $29.99… So I’m going to email Stitch Fix and see what they’ll do.
In case you didn’t know, Stitch Fix has awesome customer service. If you ever see something they send you for cheaper, just send them an email! I’ve gotten price adjustments and account credits, all just from asking. It never hurts to ask! You just may be surprised!
Verdict: MAYBE KEEP?
LINE AND DOT Darya Velvet Midi Dress SIZE: L $88
No. No. No. NO NO NO NO NO. This is… terrible to say the least. Everything about this Line and Dot Darya Velvet Midi Dress is so wrong. The fit is off majorly. They sent me a large, I’m sure because of my hip measurements. However, the spaghetti straps are too thin and chintzy and way too long. Although you can adjust the velvet straps, I have them majorly tightened in these pictures and it still doesn’t feel right.
The drape is off – it almost feels like just barely too much fabric so it doesn’t lay right. I’m sure it’s a sizing issue, but there’s no way a Medium would work in this for me either. The waist is way too big, so it looks sloppy, and don’t get me started on the fit around the hips. This velvet dress seems like its supposed to just kind of effortlessly drape / hang on your body, but its just structured enough to where that doesn’t happen. What does happen is it sits out from my body shape, and makes me look 500 times bigger than I am. I have no kind words to say about this disaster of a dress.
I’m not sure why they chose this one for me either. They mentioned something about it being over my price point – but I made sure to tell them that I had no price constraints. And at $88, I wouldn’t consider this a splurge dress. But I would consider it a waste of money for how useless and terrible it is. In no way does this fit my lifestyle at all. I tried with tights, without, with jackets and dusters and sweaters. No no no no no.
Verdict: RETURN. DUH!
Overall thoughts on December’s Stitch Fix box:
Obviously, there were some good and bad this month. I will say that in their defense, Stitch Fix certainly was less boring this time around. And while I am not a fan of every piece in this Fix, I am happy with the assortment. The dress is a total bust and was really disheartening to even see in the box, as it’s a piece I knew would be terrible for me before even trying it on. BUT the jacket is amazing and I love the sweater. Had the jeans been high waisted, I would have kept them. Additionally, if the ‘yellow’ tee had been more of a true yellow or true marigold, I would have considered keeping that as well.
While I haven’t made any final decisions yet (I have until Monday the 18th to return!), I’m thinking of keeping the Vigoss Faux Suede Asymmetrical Jacket (depending on what customer service says re: pricing), as well as the duster cardigan. Those are two pieces I know would get a lot of use! And I like that they aren’t winter specific, although the faux suede is definitely not all year round appropriate.
