Stitch Fix February

It's that time again-Stitch Fix mail for February has arrived.  Apparently box #15 was the winner as I kept all five items because I loved each of them, and they fit perfectly.

What is Stitch Fix?
It is a styling service that for $20 (which gets credited towards any items you keep) you get five items hand-selected for you by a stylist.  You fill out a style profile and link a Pinterest board, so your stylists know what you like.  If you are interested in trying out this service, please use my referral link as I can get credit for sending you their way.

After a slightly disappointing box in October, I have taken Steve's advice for the last few fixes and requested fewer specifics.  He was right, my boxes have been better than ever.

This months pictures make me a little sad because two days after they were taken, we got the biggest snow storm of this winter, and now my yard is under a foot of snow with supposedly more coming.  Photo credit goes to Potumus, who also helped style each outfit in this post.


I have been on the hunt for another pair of colored jeans since I got a fuchsia pair in Fix #2 and a dusty rose pair in Fix #11.  These mint ones will be the perfect addition.

Potumus and I decided to follow Maha's advice and pair it with the dolman top.  I don't own a dolman nor do I think I have ever gotten one in a fix before.  Clearly I was missing out because this top is the softest most comfortable top I own.  I can't wait to wear it to work next week.

The jeans are the softest pair I have ever tried on.  I imagine this is what seals or otters feel like.  They are longer, and I may decide to have them hemmed, but we will see.  I paired this with my Merrell Sandals.

Market and Spruce Corinna Striped Dolman Top $48 KEPT


I asked for something tunic length as I have a pair of black pants from The Loft that I adore wearing to work, but they really need something tunic length to wear on top.

I was not disappointed with what Maha sent me; plaid, tunic, and teal.  What else could a girl want?  I especially like that I can layer a tank underneath if the weather is cool or not as the weather warms up.  I paired this with my teal jeans and fuchsia Sperrys at my daughter's suggestion.

After some consideration of my wardrobe this winter, I realized that I need to expand my dress pants selection, so I requested a pair of dress pants too.

Once again I was not disappointed.  I don't own high waited anything, so these were a welcome change.  In addition they are made of an interesting fabric and don't have a button or zipper; they look like leggings on top, but the style card says trouser, so they are trousers.  I know that wearing these to work all day would not be an issue.  I paired them with a holiday sweater (my friends thought that was the item I got and said I should send it back) and my black flats.

I wasn't super excited about the last item because I had a top very similar to it already, but if you didn't have a black and white polka dot blouse, this is a good one.

I paired this top with my dusty rose jeans I mentioned earlier.  I layered it over a black tank, and it is lovely.  Honestly, I kept it because it was cheaper to keep it than return only this one item.

My first 5/5 box.  I am still reeling from the cost, but Steve assures me that I deserve it and need to continue building my wardrobe for work.

I haven't decided what to ask for in my March fix, and I have some time as our school band has a Disney trip coming up, so I pushed my next Fix back a couple week until the end of March.  Any suggestions on what I should ask for?

I would love to know more about you in order to help you more: Do you Stitch Fix already?  What brought you to my post?  What kinds of pieces should I try in my wardrobe?
