January Stitch Fix Review - Fix #8

I just received my 8th fix from Stitch Fix. I truly have no idea what I did before Stitch Fix. It has changed my life. Someone at work this week even called me a fashionista. Me??? Wow! Thank you, Stitch Fix and your wonderful stylists!! Speaking of wonderful stylists, mine for the 2nd month was Solenice. As I said last month, she is amazing. Once again, she referenced my Pinterest board, blog posts, and past fixes. Perfect!! For as long as she's a stylist at Stitch Fix, I will continue to request her to style my fixes. Now that I think about it, I should probably stop talking her up so much...I don't want her to get to busy for me. :)
For this fix, I had a couple of special requests: a pink dress to wear to a breast cancer philanthropy luncheon, a Valentine's night date outfit, and a colored trench coat. I received all of those items plus a couple of awesome tops.
Alice Blue Natal Knit Trench Jacket
I specifically asked for a colored trench coat after I saw this one on another post. I even added this one to my Pinterest board. See, Solenice can read my mind. Unfortunately, I just don't think this looks great on me. One thing I didn't realize until I received it, is that the jacket doesn't have any just tie it shut. As I was wearing it to try on, it kept coming open. I love the color of it, I just wasn't thrilled with the way it fit on me.

Adrianna Papell Melynda Dress
For my luncheon, Solenice chose this Melynda Dress. I love the cut and fit of this dress, and I like the way that it fit on me. I liked it, but didn't LOVE for $108, I felt that I needed to return. Also, I think I might have to go down a size on what I have listed in my style profile for dresses. This one was just a tidge too big.

Gilli Kamile Jersey Ruched Detail Dress
This dress...PERFECTION!! Solenice chose this one for my Valentine's day dress. I'm pretty sure my husband is going to be impressed. She suggested pairing it with my Just USA denim jacket from my July fix.
Yep...that's a winner!

Here is a close up of the dress, so you can really see the color:
Crescent Lurli Grommet Detail Blouse
I'll admit, when I first saw the style card and pulled this one out I was unimpressed. Then...I tried it on. I think I have a new go to work blouse!! I just love the color and fit on me. Also, the grommet details are to die for!

Leo & Nicole Hacian Split Hem Detail Pullover Sweater
Solenice said to pair these with my black Emers, black flats, and a silver necklace. I think it looks great with my Emers. Unfortunately, the only silver necklaces I have are little ones. With only my small diamond pendant, the sweater felt a little plain. Looks like I'm going to need a silver statement necklace in my next fix. Hint, hint.
Then, I paid attention to the style card. Love those things! I noticed that it in one example, it was paired with a I pulled out my 20 scarves (I might have a slight obsession) and found a match.

This fix was a 3/5 for me, and I am still in love with Stitch Fix! This service really has been dressing better to accentuate the positives of my body. No more non-flattering clothes for me. I had a major purge of my closet around Christmas. I feel so much better, and according to my coworker I am a fashionista!!
