Happy Fix Day! I originally requested a Back-to-School fix. Then, I began adding to my style note things like “light wash jeans that fit like my Just Black jeans,” “a cold shoulder top/dress,” “something chambray,” and “cute summer sandals.” Nicole pulled together another tough decision for me! Let’s take a look!

The great part of Stitch Fix is how they credit you the $20 styling fee as long as you purchase at least one item. If you love it all, you get the $20 credit and a buy 5 discount towards your order!
At the checkout, be sure to leave specific and meaningful feedback to make your next fix even better! To help Nicole pinpoint my style and tastes, I created a Pinterest board and linked it to my Stitch Fix profile. I update it regularly with new textures, tones and pieces that appeal to me.
Let’s see what Nicole pulled for me this time!
MIA CANDIDA FAUX SUEDE SANDAL
I was excited to see a pair of shoes included in my September fix. When I unwrapped the Mia Candida Faux Suede sandals, I was a little unsure of their olive color. However, after trying them on and feeling their comfort and seeing the quality of the material they were made with, I grew to like them. Still unsure, I moved on to the next piece.
SKIES ARE BLUE REGINALD CROCHET DETAIL TOP
Nicole may have been on a green kick when she was pulling different pieces together for my fix. She sent me an emerald green short sleeve Skies are Blue Reginald Crochet Detail top. The fabric is soft and flowy. The crochet details were just enough—not too loud or too much. The top fit wonderfully and instantly became one of my new favorite shirts.
I paired the Skies are Blue Reginald Crochet Detail top with my black Emers from Fix #2 and a pair of grey Lucky brand Emmie Toe ballet flats from Fix #9–an outfit that I would wear to work. I dressed the same top down by pairing it with a pair of jeans…my next item from my fix!
LEVEL 99 PRIMROSE SKINNY JEAN
I was thrilled to see a pair of light wash jeans in my fix. I was slightly less excited when I saw the rather large price tag that accompanied these jeans. However, when I tried on the LEVEL 99 Primrose Skinny Jean, I was all smiles. They are very comfortable, which nearly made me forget about the cost. After all, you can’t put a price tag on comfort when you can wear comfort in a fashionable way!
ERICA TAYLOR KAREN STRAIGHT LEG PANT
The Erica Taylor Karen Straight Leg pant was up next as my finger tips plucked up the next item. Without having seen the tags, I would have guessed that Nicole had sent me a new pair of black Emers. And she really could have fooled me. They looked just like Emers, felt just like Emers and fit just like Emers. Damn, that Erica Taylor for being a copy cat! This pant looked great styled with the Skies are Blue Reginald Crochet Detail top and it looked great dressed down with a tank and my pale pink open cardigan from my athleisure fix over the winter. However, if there was one piece of the fix that would count as my swing vote, these would be it. I didn’t necessarily need another pair of black pants, but they were nice!
FREE HEART SHAMIRA DRESS
I saved the best for last—and I didn’t even realize it! Nicole sent me a Free Heart Shamira dress. Right out of the box, I was in love with the color, the feel and overall look of this dress. It looked like something that would totally stand out to me had I been shopping for myself. The fabric was so soft and light. There were little details that made me fall even more in love with this piece–which was a for-sure keeper, even without trying it on first.
I liked that it had straps–even though they were thin. When I went to wear it, the straps were still too loose despite me adjusting them to the tightest setting. The day I wore this favorite from my fix to school, I tucked the straps inside so I wouldn’t have to deal with them sliding off my shoulders all day. Aside from that, I loved the comfort and style of this dress!
With each fix, I usually am faced with a choice of keeping everything for the sake of getting the discount or sending back the items that I didn’t love along with one or two others that I was on the fence about in order to justify sending any items back at all.
Automatically in my keep/no questions pile were the Skies are Blue Reginald Crochet Detail top, the LEVEL 99 Primrose Skinny Jean in light wash and the Free Heart Shamira dress. This left me with the two items that I felt indifferent towards. While I liked the black Erica Taylor pants, I didn’t LOVE them. I felt similarly towards the Mia Candida sandals. While I did think they were cute and different, I wasn’t over the moon about them. Also, these are the least expensive shoes I’ve been sent from Stitch Fix–maybe a point awarded on Team Keep for the sandals for that reason.
- Mia Candida Faux Suede sandals…$39.00 (KEEP)
- Skies are Blue Reginald Crochet Detail top…$54.00 (KEEP)
- LEVEL 99 Primrose Skinny Jean…$98.00 (KEEP)
- Erica Taylor Karen Straight Leg pant…$88.00 (KEEP)
- Free Heart Shamira dress…$48.00 (KEEP)
Ultimately, I decided to keep the entire fix. To date, I have worn the three pieces that I loved right out of the gate. I have a hard time wearing the sandals because of their color. However, I do like their style and material. The black Erica Taylor pants I haven’t reached for yet because we have been experiencing an unseasonably warm October–record highs reaching the 80s in Connecticut. Its technically fall and I want to break out my fall sweaters and boots—-beat it summer weather!

Style Note for My Next Fix
For my next fix, I requested a fun A-line skirt or dress. I’ve been busy pinning styles after Olivia Pope from Scandal. I have been binge watching the last season or so before I can begin watching the last and final season on ABC right now. I love her style. Her clothes–and her many jackets are to die for. I have also been touring around with a capsule wardrobe. So, besides the Olivia Pope inspired dress, I also requested a surprise of fall capsule pieces to add to my closet.
Can’t wait to see what Nicole pulled together for me!
