Hey everyone! I just got a package of hand-picked clothing delivered to my door. This is a pretty exciting day in the life of Damaris. Stitch Fix is a personal styling service that will send a box of pretty for you to try on in the comfort of your home without ever having to set foot in a mall– ahhh, relaxing. You do have to pay a $20 styling fee, but it goes towards your purchase if you decide to keep one or all things. This is my third fix. My first fix gave me this gem, my second was a dud (but I can speak well of their customer service after that experience), and this one was the best yet. I have my wonderful husband to thank for the Christmas gift card that brings you this review.

Here I am “modeling” the Pixley Edmond Chevron Print Henley Shirt ($54). I thought I was going to hate this shirt right out of the box (think suburban soccer mom, bad kind, not good) BUT I loved the fit once I tried it on. Go figure, shows why this service can be so useful. The Henley cut is actually really flattering and the material is oh so soft. I’m still not crazy about the heathered chevron pattern, but it works.
I’m also wearing the Kut from the Kloth Parcey Polka Dot Skinny Jean ($48) which I was really excited about upon opening the box, but alas, the “skinny” jeans are baggy from the knees down and about 4 inches too long (I cuffed them to try and help). So if you’re taller than me (5’ 4”), these will be super cute on you! They are a gorgeous indigo color with tiny black velvet polka dots that are difficult to see in the photo.
This is the Market and Spruce Spencer 3/4 Sleeve Striped Dress ($58). There is a lot to like about this dress: comfy cotton, versatile, graphic, yet classic. While I am tempted to keep this, I can create a similar look with a top and skater skirt I already own. There is also some slack along the shoulder and bust area that you can’t see that would be fixed by a longer-torsoed woman. I am pretty petite, so certain things just don’t fit right in that regard.
Speaking of my small frame, I was pleasantly surprised by the Olive and Oak Chase Open Knit Sweater ($68). Finally, an over-sized sweater that doesn’t overtake me (props to my stylist Kristin). This is actually my husband’s favorite piece and my favorite outfit, isn’t it obvious by my poses? Holding that arm like I just smashed it and slouching hard because I’m so comfortable. Oh well! It’s a really pretty sweater, guys. Interesting cut-out details and color blending– nothing like it in my closet!
This Market and Spruce Paul Colorblock Mixed Material Top ($64) is also a nice addition because I don’t have a lot of bum-covering pretty flowy shirts. And who doesn’t want more blouses that they can wear with leggings and still look nice? I requested some on-trend neutral and blush colors with this fix and they delivered. Now, I just have to up my statement necklace game.
If you are interested in checking it out please consider using my referral link, I will get credit to fund further fun and would be forever grateful. I think that this would also make an awesome surprise if you have access to someone’s sizes and know their style well enough (hint hint husbands!). My hubby’s surprise certainly made me a happy lady. Since we’re trying to stick to a budget, I decided to go with the sweater and color-blocked top to round-out my closet a little more. Which pieces were your favorites?
