StitchFix Number 3 - Business Professional for my New Job

If you haven't already heard, I accepted a position at a different company and quit my job last week. This new job that I will be starting on July 5th has a dress code of business professional. I am used to a dress code of pajamas and sweats as I've been working from home for the past 4 years. So when I found out that I got that job and decided to accept the position, I scheduled a Stitch Fix (affiliate link).

If you haven't heard of Stitch Fix, it's a clothing subscription box. You pay a $20 styling fee and you get a personal stylist who looks at your Stitch Fix style profile as well as your Pinterest fashion boards to help when they pick out 5 items to send in your box.

When you get the box, you have 3 days to try everything on and decide what to keep and what to send back. If you keep anything, the $20 styling fee comes out of your purchase. If you don't keep anything, you lose that $20. If you keep all 5 items, you get a 25% discount.

I have ordered a Stitch Fix box a couple times before but I didn't continue it every month because the clothes were a little too expensive for me to be purchasing every month, and I didn't need them. Especially since I worked from home and wore pajamas most days.

But I decided to get one this week and to request mostly business professional attire. My stylist, Kristina, was amazing! She congratulated me on my new job and found me some adorable items! Now I just need your help deciding what I should keep and what I should send back by Monday. So here we go...

Item 1: Papermoon Bristol Dress, $68 (Update: Kept)

I love this dress! It is stretchy and oh so comfortable. Yet it still looks very dressy and classy. The neckline is perfectly flattering. I love the little opening in the back. The only thing I don't love is the price. But I'll probably keep it anyway. What do you think?

Item 2: Pixley Tamarindo Blazer, $68 (Update: Sent Back)

I thought this blazer was really cute! But, the sleeves are really tight. I was thinking about keeping it anyway but I really can't move in it. I'm a little bummed. Part of me wants to keep it and use it as motivation to tone my arms. But that's not very responsible. What do you think?


Item 3: Market & Spruce Fitzgerald Crochet Detail Top, $54 (Update: Sent Back)

I'm sorry but this top just didn't do anything for me. I love the color, but I have several clothing items this color. And it just wasn't anything special. What do you think?


Item 4: Brixon Ivy Jarred Lace Detail Cap-Sleeve Blouse, $68 (Update: Kept)

I think this top is really cute! But as far as wearing it to the office, I only have black professional bottoms. I have black pants and a couple black skirts. Would that be too much black? Maybe I could find a fun colorful or white skirt to wear with it. Is it worth it? What do you think?


Item 5: Papermoon Portee Tie Neck Blouse, $48 (Update: Sent Back)

Originally, I wasn't crazy about this top when I saw it sitting in the box. Or even when I pulled it out. But when I tried it on with a skirt and blazer, I kinda loved it! What do you think?

Okay so what should I keep and what should I send back? I really want your opinion? Even if you really like an item I've said I didn't like, defend it! I wanna hear why you like it. Thanks!

If you would like to schedule your own fix, sign up here (aff). I love how my personal stylist takes everything from my style profile into account as well as my specific requests for each box. It's pretty expensive but when you think about what you're paying for in a personal stylist and the convenience of having your clothes delivered to your house, it's really not so bad.

Thanks for reading!
