Stitch Fix #9

I can hardly believe seven weeks have passed since my last Stitch Fix (the one with all the jeans), but lo and behold, it has and it was time for another!  I didn't have any specific requests for this fix except no jackets, no coats, no shoes, and no jeans.  So, basically, I was asking for tops, without specifically stating such. :)  I pinned quite a few sweaters, including a handful with button-up backs and elbow patches, and I was happy to see a few exact matches when I opened my fix!

Fun fact: my high school bestie recently got a part-time job with Stitch Fix.  How fun is that?!  I would be all over that if they had a position in Kansas City!

Anyway, onto my fix!  I even busted out the big camera this time.  Big camera, but no hair or makeup. #itwastheweekend #andicouldntcareless

Item #1 | Market & Spruce Margerie Stripe and Dot Open Cardigan
This was an exact match to one of my pins.  I really love the mixing of stripes and polka dots and so badly wanted to keep this (it's totally my work style), but in the end, it didn't make the cut because of the price ($68).

Item #2 | Market & Spruce Denver Cable Knit Elbow Patch Cardigan
 Cute sweater with a fun elbow patch, but just not my style.  The fabric was really thick and I felt like it hung on me in all the wrong ways.  I didn't feel great in it and decided immediately to return it.

Item #3 | Colourworks Blake Poncho Pullover Sweater
I loved this from the moment I pulled it out of the box!  I debated for awhile because it was so big (I know ponchos are supposed to be big, but this one is huge!), but in the end, I decided to keep it.  This is, after all, why I do Stitch Fix - for fun, trendy, and different pieces like this.

Loveappella Deaver Shoulder Inset Knit Top
 Didn't hate this, but didn't love it either.  It was pretty clingy and form-fitting, and right now, I'm more into looser-fitting tops.  (And no, I'm not pregnant.)  Also, for $58, it was definitely going back.

41Hawthorn Presley Colorblock Button-Back Sweater 
Another item that was an exact match from Pinterest board.  The best part is the button-up back, but it's really hard to take a backwards photo in a mirror with a big camera.  This sweater is very me, in my opinion, and a no-brainer keeper.

That's it's for fix #9!  To check out my old fixes, follow these links:

Stitch Fix #5 | March 2015-Didn't blog it


  1. The poncho is amazing! LOVE LOVE how it looks on you! Glad you kept it!

  2. I love that poncho and the last sweater! So funny bc I got the first two pieces in each of my 2 stitch fixes!!! I sent them back too- liked the navy cardigan but couldn't stomach the price!!! Love these posts!

  3. Nice!! I like the gray/black colorblock sweater on you (better than the red one I got). Great choices!! You totally pull off that poncho, I like it!! I wouldn't pick it out for myself, but that's the fun of Stitch Fix, you're right!! :)

  4. Hey I recognize that last sweater! :p I also got that polka dot cardigan in a box a while ago but sent it back for the same reason. Too light weight for the price! You got a great box this round!

  5. That poncho!!! Yes. So glad you kept it!
    Too bad the cable knit cardi didn't fit the way you wanted - it's cute!
    And the last sweater? Gah! Adorable!
