Stitch Fix Reveal #53 // Be My Buyer!


Here we are again! I swear Stitch Fix is actually sending me a box every 4 days because there is no way in H that it's been a month already. I'm really over how time flies even faster every year older you get. JUST SLOW DOWN. One second it's the middle of the afternoon and I'm over here eating a Dairy Queen blizzard and the next minute it's the next morning and I'm drinking coffee thinking "how is it Thursday already!?" Which brings me to my next point - IT'S ALMOST CHRISTMAS! I'm over here thinking summer is lingering when stores are all ready for the holiday season.

So none of that really had any point to where I was getting but it's okay, we're getting there. For this particular 53rd fix of mine I had requested from my stylist to send me items for our Denver and Vail trip. Back when I requested this I was seeing temps of 30 degrees in Vail so I basically asked her to send me 5 blankets. As she does in her typical awesome stylist spirit, she delivered on 5 great pieces to wear there and back at home. The only problem? I have absolutely no clue what I want to keep. So that's where you all come into play today - if you could so kindly comment below, on Facebook, or Instagram which 2-3 items you would keep, please let me know. I've got to check out asap so any help would be much appreciated.

But before we begin here are a few words about Stitch Fix and how it all works if you haven't read this the 52 other times I've wrote about it ;)

1. You start by filling out your style profile - you will complete all sorts of questions on sizing, pricing, preferences, colors, etc. You can also write notes about likes/dislikes. Make sure to link your fashion board on Pinterest so your stylist can see what you like!

2. Order your first fix! Your card will be charged a $20 styling fee however, if you keep any item [one or more] you will be credited back the $20. Because of this I always recommend keeping at least one item or you are essentially giving away $20 for nothing in return. You will receive 5 items [made up of clothing, jewelry, and handbags, whatever you prefer]. I personally only want clothing in my fix so I just always let my stylist know! 

3. Decide what you want to keep and what you want to send back [in a postage paid envelope]! You have 3 business days to do so - use this time to try everything on, see what you have in your closet that pairs well with it and don't be afraid to say yes to something that you wouldn't normally. That's what makes Stitch Fix so fun! If you keep all 5 items you will receive 25% off your entire fix, winning! 

It should be noted that while I have chosen to receive monthly fixes, this is in no way a subscription service and you are able to decide when you want another fix, whether that be in 6 months or 2 years from your first fix! As always, if you ever have any questions feel free to leave them in the comments section below. Okay, here we go! 

1. Emily Rose Melodee Cowl Neck Pullover - Small - $64

leggings [my absolute favorite!] // over the knee boots [30% off!] // purse // floppy hat

Put a cowl neck on anything and I'm sold. Especially on a sweater that is long enough to wear with leggings. Is there really anything else you need in life? Grey is always a perfect winter color as it makes you look a little bit like giant snowflake. A little dirty snowflake but a snowflake none the less. I do love this sweater so when I said I was confused on what I would like to keep, I was partially lying because this is the one thing I am sure of. Please agree. 

2. Andrew Marc Risor Quilted Puffer Coat - Small - $168
jeans [25% off! my favorite!] // riding boots [20% off! wearing in cognac/cognac]

I absolutely love this brand of coats [you can see more here and here!] as I have received other Andrew Marc coats in previous fixes. They are so warm and feel so great on. I love the fit of this jacket, the detachable fur detail and of course, the color. I think for this it mostly comes down to the question of if I need another winter coat or not. Realistically the answer is no, however, also realistically I want the answer to be yes. HELP. 

3. RD Style Kolding Faux Suede Vest - Small - $78

I can totally appreciate why my stylist sent me this vest, as I had asked for great fall pieces to wear on our trip. However, for some reason this vest just does not seem "me" at all. You know when you come to those moments in life where you are all "WHO AM I?!" I feel like I'm asking myself that question often when I have this on. Do I think it could be adorable on somebody else? Yes. Do I think that person will ever be me? No.

4. Olive & Oak Foray Hooded Knit Top - Small - $54
jeans [possibly size down one] // flats [20% off!] 

For starters, I obviously shouldn't have worn a purple bra with this top. That or I should have worn a tank underneath but who has time for that? This is an exceptionally light hoodie which is kinda nice. I do love the color of it, I just don't know if I love it enough to pay $54 for it, you feel me? 

5. Tart Terra Faux Fur Vest - Small - $158
black sweater [size down, wearing in XS] // jeans [25% off! my favorite!] // booties in coco loco leather  // brown leather purse // over the knee boots [30% off!] // black leather purse

And now for what I think is quite possibly the best for last. I haven't ever owned a faux fur vest, but now that they sent me this I'm convinced I need like 20 more. Mostly for the blanket factor. This thing is incredibly soft and quite luxurious looking. I feel a little bit like an impostor in it because let's be real, I'm not fancy but it's sometimes fun to pretend. I love that you can pair this with black or brown as shown above. I would also love this with an ivory blouse type shirt underneath. So many ideas running through my head. 

So there we have it friends! 5 pieces, 5 confused face emojis. Cast your vote for your top 1, 2, or 3 favorites! Thanks in advance - Stitch Fix is so much more fun with you ladies around.

  1. I would keep the cowl neck pullover, the coat and the faux fur vest (that one is a must!). I am a total sucker for winter coats and have way too many, but that color looks great and you know you'll wear it in Colorado!

  3. I'm pretty sure you could wear anything and look cute but my faves from this fix are the cowl neck sweater and the faux fur vest! The cowl neck looks so warm and comfy and let's be honest, everyone needs a faux fur vest! I have one an absolutely LOVE it! It's a great piece for holidays I think. I love the quilted coat but that color just isn't very versatile I don't think. Maybe I'm weird but I would be trying to match my outfit to my coat. Haha!

  7. I have recently lost 40 pounds and I really want to try this company out..like really bad! All of these clothes are so cute! How do you not keep everything?

  8. The coat is my favorite. I think you have cuter things to take on your trip as far as sweaters and such.

  9. It all looks good but I think you should go with #1, #2, and #5 - that vest is awesome!!

    ReplyDelete
  10. That faux fur vest is a MUST KEEP!! It screams winter and luxury and awesomeness.

  11. I actually really like the shearling vest on you, but you gotta be you! I vote grey sweater, burgundy coat (love!), and faux fur vest. I'm not crazy about the sheer top -it doesn't scream Vail nor does it appear to be worth the price. :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. 1,2,5! Love that last vest way more than I thought I would, looks so cute :) and I think that jacket is a unique color!

    ReplyDelete
  13. That coat looks so cozy! I love the color.

  14. If it were my money...I'd definitely get the faux fur vest. The cowl neck looks super cute, but only if the material is comfy. I'd pass on the coat...I bet you'll find a cuter one!

  15. Cowl neck and faux fur. If you choose only one though, the faux fur vest looks FAB on you!

  18. Definitely keep the cowl neck sweater and faux fur vest. The coat is really cute, and the color is great on you! It just depends if you need another puffy winter coat.

    3. Definite No
    4. No. Too sheer. Too expensive.

  21. Erin,
    Question about the Vince Camuto booties you are wearing in the pics. What color are they? I ordered these in the greystone suede because I thought they were a gray/brown but mine are true grey like elephant grey. Your always look more brown which I LOVE. The only other color is the Coco Loco Nubuck Leather which I don't think these are. Any help you have is appreciated.
    Thanks.

The only other color is the Coco Loco nubuck and I don't think yours are those. Not sure if yours is a color they don't have anymore. Any insight is appreciated. Thanks

  23. Love the purple coat and the cowl neck. Not a fan of the fur vest, especially at that price.

  24. I really love that suede vest on you! Super cute!

  25. I would keep the cowl neck pullover, the coat and the vest (last one)! I keep forgetting that you are short like me (5'3) because you look tall in your photos! I like the length of the coat on you. I want a longer coat but they look AWFUL on me due to my height.

  26. Love the faux fur vest and the Cowl neck sweater! Both look so cozy!

    ReplyDelete
  27. 1. Yes
    2. Maybe, it looks good on you. but i also think there is such a thing as too many winter coats. :)

    4. No
    5. Yes

  28. The cowl neck pullover and the coat x4 because there were 4 of us deciding and we all agreed on these two.

    ReplyDelete
  29. When I saw the pic of the first vest, I thought to myself that that totally isn't your style, and then I saw that you basically wrote the exact same thing! I've read way too many of your fashion posts. Haha! Love the cowl neck sweater. That's the only thing I think worth your moolah!

  30. I love the first cowl neck sweater, that jacket is so nice and a timeless design... that colour looks great on you. Third piece... I love that fur vest!!! But maybe you could find a cheaper version??

    ReplyDelete
  31. 1 - eh, maybe. Nothing THAT special.
    2 - beautiful, but pass
    3 - No way
    4 - too thin for the price-pass
    5 - YES!!!

  37. Keep the first item - the gray sweater. The rest is a pass, although I did love the jacket on you. If you already own two like it then you don't need another.

    ReplyDelete

  41. In my opinion I would keep all 5 and get the discount, because I love coat, the grey sweater and the fur vest! (I have one on order)

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
