Stitch Fix Review for October 2020 – Fix #86

Hello October and hello to a new Stitch Fix Review. This month’s box was filled with things to enjoy wearing in fall.

Stitch Fix Review for October 2020

Last month I was so sad to learn that my beloved stylist, Brittany H., was leaving Stitch Fix. But, guess what? In her last few days of work, my request for a box came through and she got to style me one last time.

I was so surprised and happy when I read my sweet note from Brittany and learned that she styled me again this month.

This Month’s Stitch Fix Items

This month I requested items to enjoy wearing on our annual Vermont fall trip. If you’ve never been to Vermont in the fall, put it on your bucket list.

These are posts that I wrote after two of our trips:

Sage Braided Back Cut Out Tank

This Sage Braided Back Cut Out Tank is just my style. I loved it’s cut, color, and super soft fabric.

I paired this cute tank with black Old Navy pants, Jambu shoes (mine are old, this version is available now), and jewelry from Rocksbox.

Rocksbox is a jewelry subscription service that sends three pieces of jewelry that you can wear for as long as you like each month.  When you send your three pieces back or buy what you like, a new box is sent.  If you’d like a free month of Rocksbox, sign up with this code: PAULABFF54

It is really cold here in Virginia so we had to take pictures inside this month. To see details on my winter decor, click here and here.

This tank has an adorable braided back cut out detail.

Brittany suggested wearing this tank for a hike on our trip or for a travel day in the car.

I like that this tank can be dressed up but I can also wear it with leggings or capris to the gym.

I couldn’t pass up keeping this soft and cute tank.

Verdict – Keep

Vigoss Elaine Girlfriend Distressed Jean

A pair of jeans is a necessity for any fall trip. The Vigoss Elaine Girlfriend Distressed Jean that Brittany picked for me fit me perfectly.

While we were taking pictures for this post, our neighbors dropped by to climb our Magnolia tree and to visit with Sherman. Is this not one of the cutest little boys that you have ever seen?

I paired the jeans with a leopard print tee and a belt, both Amazon purchases.

Although I liked these jeans, I didn’t keep them because the last pair of jeans that Brittany sent me were high waist and I discovered that a high waist jean is more comfortable than a mid-rise one.

Verdict – Return

Market & Spruce Halls Brushed Knit Two Pocket Cardigan

This Market & Spruce Halls Brushed Knit Two Pocket Cardigan is super soft and a color that I can layer over many blouses in my fall and winter wardrobe.

I knew the second that I tried this cardigan on that I was keeping it. Not only can I wear it with casual outfits, I also can layer it over a dress.

For this month’s pictures, we did something different and took most of them in our front yard. Did you notice the fall wreath on my front door? Don’t miss seeing it up close.

Verdict – Keep

Market & Spruce Kallon Brushed Knit Hoodie

Talk about cozy! The Market & Spruce Kallon Brushed Knitt Hoodie was super soft and very comfortable.

This top is great to wear with jeans or with a skirt for a casual look.

I liked this hoodie but hoods tend to annoy me because they made the back of my hair get knotted.

Since I wasn’t 100% in love with this hoodie (mostly because of the hood), I decided to return it.

Verdict – Returned

Papermoon Simone Flutter Sleeve Blouse

The final item to share is the Papermoon Simone Flutter Sleeve Blouse.

Stitch Fix Papermoon Simone Flutter Sleeve Blouse

This blouse had the cutest almost leopard like print and adorable flutter sleeves. Unfortunately, it was too big for me.

Another detail that I loved about this blouse was the back.

I could have requested a smaller size in this blouse when checking out, but since the window for wearing short sleeves is closing in, I decided to return it.

Verdict – Returned

I want to thank Brittany again for being such a wonderful stylist for the past five years. My new stylist has big shoes to fill.

  1. Paula, you look good in all of these clothes, seriously. I like the jeans a lot, but totally get your comfort point about the higher rise vs mid. I also get your point about the hoodie. They bug me in general because they tend to hand back on the neck simply for the weight of the hood. I think you should reorder the smaller size in the flutter sleeve – it’s super cute! Love all the pictures. I see a fall getaway in your future!

    1. I thought about sizing down but since the top has short sleeves, I decided not to. I’d like a comfy hoodie without the hood. I guess that is a sweatshirt! Ha-Ha!

  2. I agree you were super cute in all the items Brittney chose for you, especially the jeans, they fit you so well!! I always love seeing Sherman. I’m sure he didn’t mind sharing his spot in the photo shoot with a little friend! 🙂
    A fall trip is in the planning here too!

  3. Loved your choices to keep! I, too, have gotten used to the higher rise with jeans and prefer them over the mid-rise and I also don’t wear many hoodies due to them being too heavy in the hood and I’m always tugging it back in place!! Gptta be comfy!! Take care and thanks for sharing your review!

    1. We are just alike with the hoodies and jeans! Thank you so much for stopping by to see this month’s Fix!

  4. Paula, I just got my fix a couple of days ago and am still deciding on a couple of things. You look beautiful in all of your fixes. I agree re: high-waist jeans. Is it an age thing? I’m an outlier cuz I LOVE hoodies ! Sometimes my head gets cold and I have a readily available head warmer ! I have a Stitch Fix hoodie similar to the one they included in your fix. Comfy cardigans are the BEST.

  5. I love that you kept a couple pieces for the trip, Paula! I’m THIS close to checking out the subscription for myself! 😉 And I’ll be sure to use your affiliate if I do!

  6. Have fun on your trip! I MUST have high rise denim and workout pants! Lol! If they a aren’t high rise, it bugs me all day long! This fix was really good. I love any pair of jeans I get from Stitch Fix. That flutter sleeve top is really cute.

  7. Love your photos and the front yard background. I agree that all the items look great on you.
    Your fall front porch display is lovely.

  8. So thrilled I got to style you one more time, Paula! It’s been an absolute pleasure. These look great on you! 🙂

    1. Thank you, Brittany! It made me so happy to see your comment. I hope you are doing well in your new job. Please keep visiting me here on the blog.
