Fall Stitch Fix Review – November 2016

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

It’s time for another Stitch Fix review, this time with Fall clothes! I was pretty picky over what I kept this time, making sure it went with the Dressing Your Truth colors that work for me. I’m not passionate about making every single item in my wardrobe match my color code, but when the items are good quality and cost more, I want them to be something I adore!

If you would love to get started with Stitch Fix, they offer gift certificates, which is how I got started! Last Christmas Sean gave me a gift certificate, and I was so shocked! He totally knew I had been wanting to try this service out, but I never dreamed he would get me a gift card! It’s a nice way for a husband to buy his wife some clothes, without doing the actual shopping. 🙂

If you are not familiar with Stitch Fix, here is how it works! 

First thing you do is fill out your style profile. This gives your stylist ideas on how tight or loose you want your clothes, want pricing, sizing, and color preference you have. This is also the place you link to your fashion board on Pinterest, so your stylist gets an idea of what you like! I have a board just devoted to pinning Stitch Fix items.

Now you just order your fix! You have to pay a $20 styling fee, but that fee is refunded if you end up keeping any item in your box. I always keep at least one thing, so I don’t blow through $20. Every box comes with 5 items. Stitch Fix offers clothes, shoes, accessories, jewelry, but you can specify what you want. I don’t have anything checked on my profile beside clothing, but I might try the shoes and jewelry section next time.

The box will show up in a few weeks (you can schedule when you want it to arrive, but it normally takes around 2-3 weeks for the stylist to put together you box, and it to arrive). You have 3 days to try everything on, and decide what you want to keep. A postage paid envelope is included, so it’s super easy to send back! If you keep all 5 items, you get 25% off your order!

Let’s start with what I did love first!

Yellow skirt with blue sweater from Stitch Fix.

Blue Sweater – Somehow I lost the sheet that showed the names of everything I received. So you get the basic names. 😉 This sweater is super soft and comfortable. I just couldn’t get over how soft it was, and I love the color!

It’s so wonderful to wear something that feels like pajamas. 🙂 I saved this, and already wore it to an orchestra concert that my children played in.

Martina Cardigan from Stitch Fix

Martina Cardigan – This burgundy cardigan was something I really debated about keeping. It was incredibly comfortable. I ended up sending it back because I didn’t think I had enough in my closet that it would go with. I’m kind of regretting it though. I need to find some more cardigans this year!

Cardigan from Stitch Fix

You can always request certain items if you see something you like that Stitch Fix sells. I know they have this cardigan in different colors, so I thought about requesting it in a different color.

Shiela A-Line skirt from Stitch Fix

Shiela A-Line skirt – Ok this is a totally new look for me! I liked how the outfit all pulled together, but the skirt is not long enough for me to wear in everyday life. If I stand perfectly still or pose for a picture, I might be able to pull this length off, but even then…nope. LOL I want skirts to cover my knees. 🙂 The whole outfit is darker in colors than I prefer now. Back it went!

Tulen Pleated Top from Stitch Fix

Tulen Pleated Top – When I pulled this top out of the box I was in love with the color. My love for it ended there. You have to wear a cami under this top because you can see through it. It’s baggy, long, and barely tucked into this skirt for a picture. I adore this color, but it definitely went back!

Green shirt from Stitch Fix

I wish this shirt would have worked because the color is just what I’ve been looking for!

Overall I wasn’t out of this world excited about this box, but I’m glad I found the sweater. I wrote some honest feedback when I checked out, and Stitch Fix has waived my next $20 styling fee for me to try again. I always appreciate how often Stitch Fix will do this (definitely don’t abuse this, you want to give honest feedback each time so Stitch Fix knows what type of clothes to send!).

I’m going to schedule a box for December, and I’m really hoping to find 2 things in the box I want to keep, instead of just 1. 🙂 I added some more items to my Stitch Fix Pinterest board to give my stylist some ideas.

What would you love to receive from Stitch Fix?

Dressing Your Truth Review!

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

The Dressing Your Truth program has literally changed my wardrobe. I was so skeptical when I purchased this program if it would really do anything, but the confidence and knowledge it has given me has been a tremendous help!

The Dressing Your Truth program will totally change your wardrobe, and help you have a closet full of clothes you adore and that look good on you!

I’ve always been the more outgoing child. Sometimes I feel like I have more of a firstborn personality than my oldest sister. I’m bubbly, talkative, I enjoy being around people, and I enjoy bright cheerful things. This personality should naturally come through and be reflective in my clothing, but I’ve struggled to let that happen in years past, as I think I felt the need to fit into a certain mold.

Navy Floral Maxi Dress

I really don’t have to prove that I’m a conservative homeschooling mom by the more serious and somber colors of clothes. I can dress modestly AND let my personality come through with fun colors and prints! This course has really helped me be more confident in letting my personality shine, and dressing in a way that reflects who I really am.

Pink Blush Floral Maxi Dress

So what is the Dressing Your Truth program really all about?

In the course you are presented with 4 different beauty types. The first part of the course is where you figure out why type you really are, then once you select the type, the course walks you through how to dress for that type, what accessories, makeup, and hair styles work your beauty type.

The 3 hour course teaches you about 5 different elements of style – color, fabrication, texture, design lines and pattern. As you learn about these elements of style, it all seems to suddenly make sense. You get a big picture approach on how to dress for your type, and what will and will not work for your beauty type.

Dress Your Truth Program - find out what colors look best on you and what texture and fabrics are best for you!

What Type Am I?

I’ve got to admit, it was hard to narrow it down. I have a little bit of each type in me, especially the 1, 2, and 4. But as I kept working through the course I could identify with the Type 1 the best, the Bright Animated Woman. I’m pretty sure my secondary type is a 4. So what does this all mean?

I’m working on purging black from my closet, and instead wearing a lot of navy blue. Navy is the new black, right? At least for Type 1’s. 🙂

LulaRoe Pink Nicole Dress. It's super bright and cheerful, and is a great knee length dress that is comfortable for everyday wear.

It was after I took the course that I decided to cut my long hair. I cut 13″ off, and have a “fun” hairstyle now, bouncy and fun!

A Before Look at my hair…

A knee length denim skirt with a comfortable striped sweatshirt and a fun blue scarf for my hair!

13″ cut and curled with hot rollers!

A blue cardigan from Stitch Fix, and a brand new hairstyle with curly hair!

Could this course help you?

If you feel like you have a solid grasp on your wardrobe, and already adore fashion and know what really works for you, then you probably don’t need this course.

If you struggle to know what looks good on you, what colors and styles really work for your body, then this would be a really good course to take!

A Disclaimer

I actually didn’t publish this review for several months, as I was trying to decide if I should. I try to only endorse something that I can stand behind 100%. This is going to be one of those times that I give a disclaimer on something I’m endorsing.

If you are a christian, you might find the first part of the course to be rather new age like. You have to relate to the elements of the earth, and it just felt a little out there. However once I got past that, the practical hands on stuff that came was amazing, and I’m so glad I stuck it out. I just want it to be clear that I’m not endorsing everything in the first section.

I recently went through a different course, thinking it might be the perfect course to suggest. I came back to this one, because it really did dramatically change how I look at what clothes I purchase.

Styling Cards

I can’t forget to mention the super helpful styling cards! Once you decide what type you are, they send you a large and wallet size style cards of colors that work for you. I keep the wallet size card with me at all times, and it’s really helpful when I’m out shopping!

Dress Your Truth Store

I also love going to the Dressing Your Truth store and looking to see what they have! I’ve never purchased anything from there, but I get a lot of ideas from the colors they have in my style. I went out shopping with my sister recently and came home with bright and cheerful clothes, even brighter color clothes for winter! And you know what? It made me so happy!

Normally this course is $297 to go through, but they have a special price of $99 going on through November 22th!

Instead of just getting access to the type you pick out for yourself, you will receive access to all FOUR types! This is actually really helpful, because a lot of people are dominate in one type, and can still relate to another type.

You also receive all four style cards sent to you, instead of just the one type you choose! This helps you even more when you are out shopping, you can take all 4 style guides and instantly know if a color is yours or not!

This course actually saves you money in the long run, because you stop buying clothes that you really don’t like! You will know what colors and fabrics work for you, and only purchase clothes that will truly work.

If you can’t afford the course right now, you can go through the free energy profiling course here. I haven’t gone through this so I don’t have many details on it, but it might still be a helpful course to go through.

One last thing….this course has even helped me be more confident in makeup colors! I totally go for brighter lipstick colors and have fun with eyeshadow, without going crazy and drawing a lot of attention to myself. 🙂

Let me know if you have any questions, or decide to go through the course!

4 New Fall Items On My Wardrobe Wish List!

This post may contain Affiliate Links. Thank you for your support!

I’ve been trying to look around the stores and see what current styles are out there for fall. Beyond that, I’ve looked at my own closet to see what gaps I might have in my wardrobe for fall.

I like to be stylish, but also realize I have six children and a husband to purchase clothing for as well. My budget only goes so far! Shopping online at places like ThredUP can help when I just can’t find the time to get to the thrift store, or search out good deals in stores.

While I could make a really long list of things I want, here are a few things I’ve narrowed it down to for this fall season (and into winter).

Quilted Vest

A Quilted Vest – I’m not sure yet if this will be flattering on me or not, but it’s high on my list to try. I want to get this white vest from JCPenny, and maybe the navy one as well. I can see it looking really cute with my Rainbow Denim Skirt.

Striped, floral and solid color shirts would look cute under these vests.

Brown ankle boots

Ankle Boots – These have been in style for awhile now, but I’ve put off getting any. I wore ankle boots when I was 13, and it just has always reminded me of that time. I finally found a pair I like on Zulily, and absolutely love them! I’ve always liked the Naturalizer brand, so I’m hoping they work for me. If you missed them on Zulily, they are also available at Kohls!

Choose Joy and Choose Hope shirts

Choose Joy and Choose Hope Shirts – I love the short sleeve Choose Joy shirt I have, so I’m going to get one (or both!) of these long sleeve tees. A Halftee tank under them will solve the v-neck problem. 🙂 I’m leaning towards the Choose Hope shirt, as I’m really trying to cling to hope that we will be able to move someday, and buy a house. 🙂

Through October 20th you can get either shirt shipped free for $16.95 with the code: CHOOSEMSM2 at the checkout! 

Solid colored long sleeve shirts from Land's End for fall and winter!

Solid Color Shirts – Somehow my closet is sadly lacking in solid color shirts. It’s hard to find good shirts that are thick enough to not see through, and hold up through washes without pilling. These solid shirts from Land’s End have good reviews, and they don’t look skin tight. For a little cheaper option, there are good reviews on these cotton tees from JCPenny.

So there you have it! I would love to know what you are looking for this fall!

*We are having a flash sale at Deborah & Co. through Thursday, October 20th! Receive free shipping in the USA on any $20.00 or more cami order placed! Use the code: FLASHFREESHIP at the checkout!
