Yesterday, I got my tenth Stitch Fix in the mail! I kept ALL the items from my last Fix, and I’ve been dying to get this latest Stitch Fix in my hands! I hoped I’d have my same stylist again (Nicole). I also spent a lot of time updating my Pinterest Style Board called “For My Stitch Fix Stylist” in the hopes it would make my future fixes even more successful.
Here was the note I sent to my stylist after my last fix to guide Fix #10:
My 29th birthday is coming up on October 29th – something fun to celebrate in would be a great addition! Excited to have Nicole as my stylist again! I 100% feel like she is getting a sense of my personal style and this fix was pretty dead-on, minus some fit issues. Her note acknowledged that she is really listening, and that is super appreciated. I think it’s the start of a great partnership. Fall/winter clothes are my favorite so I’m looking forward to the upcoming fixes. I’d love to see oversized/off-the shoulder sweaters, more leggings in rich colors (olive, burgundy, chocolate, camo), structured cardigans/jackets, loooong draped cardigans/sweaters. Anything in faux leather, animal print, mix of neutrals and neon. Pretty please check out the newest additions to my Pinterest board
A few days ago I peeked in my account to try and figure out what was coming, but it only lists the names of the items and doesn’t include pictures. So…I had an idea of what was headed my way, but didn’t have any clue as to the colors or patterns of things.
- Octavia: Bennie Heathered Stripe Knit Infinity Scarf ($34)
- Loveappella: Oliver Faux Leather Trim Striped Top ($58)
- Kut from the Kloth: Danny 5-Pocket Knit Pant ($68)
- 19 Cooper: Sheldon Leopard Print Mixed Material Top ($58)
- 41Hawthorn: Sherwood Faux Leather Detailed Cardigan ($74)
My note from my stylist (Nicole):
Stitch Fix comes with an information card which includes a listing of everything in the box, prices, and then a total of how much everything would be if you kept everything in the box (it deducts your $20 styling fee and the 25% discount for keeping all of your items):
Here is what I received:
Octavia: Bennie Heathered Stripe Knit Infinity Scarf ($34): This scarf is beautiful, and really soft for a knit. I like how it drapes too. My hesitation is with the colors. The combination of navy, orange and yellow is a bit of a weird mix and it’s definitely not in my normal palette. VERDICT: Undecided!
Loveappella: Oliver Faux Leather Trim Striped Top ($58): This top is SO me. I love the grey+black combo and the wide strips. I like the length of the top and the cut at the bottom. The leather detail in the v-neck is subtle, but a nice addition to make the top special. VERDICT: Kept!
Kut from the Kloth: Danny 5-Pocket Knit Pant ($68): I loved these pants initially, especially the burgundy color. Unfortunately, the waist was too snug and the length was too long. Style wise this was a fit – but fit wise it had to go. VERDICT: Returned!
19 Cooper: Sheldon Leopard Print Mixed Material Top ($58): I loved this top initially, especially the leopard print. Unfortunately, the top fit too tight across my chest and was a bit too short. Style wise this was a fit – but fit wise it had to go. VERDICT: Returned!
41Hawthorn: Sherwood Faux Leather Detailed Cardigan ($74): This draped cardigan is so great – super long and softer than you’d imagine. The faux leather detail is subtle, but a nice touch to make the top a bit more elegant and dressed up. I know I’ll be wearing this a TON this fall. VERDICT: Kept!
I really like the styling cards included in my Stitch Fix box. They help provide inspiration on how you might pair this new find with something already in your closet.
For my tenth box – I am a happy girl. I got Nicole as my stylist again and she’s really starting to get a sense for my style. The top and burgundy pants that didn’t fit great aren’t her fault – they are mine. And it’s great motivation to keep on this healthy journey and not let weight be an issue with any clothes I fall in love with. I love the concept and as long as I keep even one piece so I don’t lose my styling fee, I’m a happy Stitch Fix girl! Excited to see what’s in my next box, set to arrive in 2-3 weeks.

If you don’t know the greatness that is Stitch Fix, let me break it down for you… Basically, Stitch Fix is a personal shopping/styling service for women. You sign up (HERE) and fill out an in-depth style profile about all your fashion likes and dislikes, sizes and even budget preferences. Are you more preppy or more rock n’ roll? Do you wear T-shirts and jeans – or are you never caught without a dress? You can even link to a Pinterest board to really show your stylist what your personal style is all about…
Once you’re all signed up, you’ll receive a box once a month with outfits and accessories HAND-PICKED for you by your personal Stitch Fix stylist. There is a $20 styling fee each month. IF you choose to keep even one item, that $20 is applied to your purchase price. Even better, if you decide to keep all 5 items – you get an additional 25% off your total order. Essentially – you keep what you love and you send back anything that doesn’t work. You only pay for the items to decide to hang on to, and you are charged when you ‘check out’ each month on your Stitch Fix page. You have a few days to try everything on and the box comes with a bag and a prepaid return label so you can easily ship back the pieces you aren’t interested in.
