My Second Stitch Fix

stitch fix, online shopping, fashion, paper moon iglesia pleated blouseI recently received my second Stitch Fix order. I have a lot of work staples (suits, dresses, pencil skirts and slacks) but not a lot of casual clothes (workout attire and sweats notwithstanding). For this Fix I was specifically looking for “non-sleeveless tops” (i.e. not camisoles or shells) that I could wear both under suit jackets and cardigans to work and with jeans for a more casual look.Interested? Sign up with my referral link and I’ll get a $25 credit if you place an order!stitch fix, online shopping, fashion, 41hawthorn gideon polka dot sweaterIn this Fix, I received one pair of jeans, one sweater, two three-quarter-length-sleeved blouses and one short-sleeved knit top. I decided to keep all five items in this shipment, meaning I got a 25 percent discount on the order.stitch fix, online shopping, fashion, 41hawthorn filbert 3/4 sleeve popover blouseAs with my first Stitch Fix order, some of the items were definitely things I would not have picked out myself. They’re different than the other things hanging in my closet so that’s a good thing!stitch fix, online shopping, fashion, mani ruin boyfriend jeanSo far I’ve worn the Igsleia Pleated Blouse with a charcoal skirt and black wedge heels, and the Gideon Polka Dot Sweater under a black jacket paired with the Ruxin Boyfriend Jean and gray suede Mary Jane heels. (I went rogue and wore jeans to work one day! It was sort of a snow day and we had a two-hour delayed opening.) I don’t accessorize much other than earrings (my Fitbit has replaced my watch), so I might prioritize accessories in my note to “personal stylist” for my next Fix.stitch fix, online shopping, fashion, loveappella kiana crew neck knit topThere are a few other StitchFix competitors out there these days, like MM.LaFleur (which focuses exclusively on business attire and cleverly calls their shipments “Bento Boxes”) and Le Tote.Have you ever shopped with a personal stylist? Give it a try!
