Stitch Fix #2 October 2013

Rating: Maybe, One More Try!!
Cost: $20 styling fee + retail price of items you keep

My Stitch Fix #2 arrived yesterday! I was so excited to see what my stylist sent me this time based on my feedback from my last fix. I was happy to see some color when I opened the box. There was also some patterns that looked interesting, so I couldn't wait to try everything on. Here's a look at what I received.

Bay to Baubles Cecilia Rectangle Gems Layering Necklace
Retail Price $32

I didn't really like this necklace nor do I really need another long necklace. The large stones kept flipping backwards as I was wearing it and I have a 1 year old daughter that would really pull on this, so I never wear necklaces anymore. The colors were different shades of blue that were nice and definitely colors I would wear.

Kut from the Kloth Jonathan Corduroy Skinny Pant
Retail Price $78

I liked the tan color of these because they are versatile and will go with many items in my closet. They fit well and were comfortable. They are a tad tight, but I think they will loosen up with wear as most pants do. They are not uncomfortably tight, but if they shrink a bit they may be.

Undecided, what are your thoughts?

Mak Neptune Stripe & Colorblocked Cardigan
Retail Price: $48

This was the item I was most excited to try on when I first opened the box. But it didn't fit quite right. The sleeves were slightly too short and the sweater was a bit shorter than I like. The colorblocked pattern also just looked wrong on me. I guess an unsymmetrical pattern is just not for me.

Under Skies Finley Bell Sleeve Knit Sweater
Retail Price $68

I wasn't crazy about this sweater at first look, but I tried it on anyways. The neckline was large and it drooped down over my shoulder, which I wasn't crazy about. I hated the bell sleeves. And they were slightly short, so they looked even worse. (I don't have crazy long arms, so I'm not sure why nothing fit in the arms. I've never had that problem before.)

Sweet Rain Dally Knit Chevron Pencil Skirt
Retail Price $58

I loved the print on this skirt, but it was very long (below the knee). And very form fitting. I'm really not sure how I feel about it. I'm not sure what to wear it with besides solid colored sweaters or blouses for the fall/winter. The material was soft and it is very comfortable, but I'm not sure it is really my style.

Undecided, what are your thoughts?

I was hoping I would love at least one piece in this Stitch Fix, especially since I provided a lot of feedback from my last one. But I'm not sure I like any of them enough to keep anything. The two items I'm undecided about are the tan corduroy pants and the chevron pencil skirt. Can you please help me decide whether I should keep either of them? Please leave your comments below. And be honest!


  1. Both the pants and the skirt look fantastic! However, the pants are a bit pricey--you can find good skinny cords for less than that from the Gap or Loft. Unless they are particularly comfy or they'll really fill a gap in your wardrobe, I say send 'em back. The skirt is very cool, and I actually really like the longer length. Keep the skirt unless you're even a little uncomfortable with how body con it is--not worth it if you are.

    1. Thanks for the feedback! I ended up keeping the tan cords because I currently don't have any tan pants (and they go with so much, not sure why I don't already own any). They were a bit pricey, but I think I'll be able to wear them a lot, so hopefully they'll be worth it. I sent the skirt back. The more I thought about it, I just couldn't see myself wearing it. I thought it only looked good with solid colors. The pattern doesn't show up in the picture that great, but it didn't seem to go with anything. And it was so tight that I was very self conscious. I knew it would probably sit in my closet and I'd never wear it.
