As a fun start to 2016, I received my 9th fix on January 2nd. T gave me a withering look when it came to our door and didn’t believe me when I swore I only get them once a month. Sigh. Anywho, here’s what came in fix #9!
Margaret M Emer Jacquard Print High Waisted Cropped Pant
I received a pair of solid black cropped Emers several fixes ago, and they are so amazing that I requested a pair of full-length colored ones for this fix. As you can see, these pants don’t have buttons or zippers; they just pull on and look super flattering. That is, they look super flattering if they fit right. For some reason, I received these Emers in a medium, which is a size larger than I normally wear, so they are a little loose and baggy. Luckily, I was able to contact customer service and get them exchanged for a small.
Papermoon Myrtle Crochet Back Top
I love everything about this top. I asked Allisha, my stylist, to send tops in neutral colors that I can wear with colorful bottoms and accessories, and this definitely fits the bill. It looks super flattering on me, which isn’t always the case with flowy tops like this. And the crochet back is beautiful.

Pretty back detail.
Dear John Macie Bootcut Jean
I requested a pair of dark wash bootcut jeans for this fix, as bootcut jeans are coming back in style and the only pair I have are light wash ones from Old Navy (and I plan on them getting wrecked on our upcoming Mexico mission trip). These would be cute with heels or wedges for a slightly dressier work look. However, for the price ($88) I was hoping for jeans a little softer/less stiff that would retain their shape, and after wearing these for a few hours they felt a little loose. I managed to find a pair of jeans at Target with a feel I liked better for 1/4 of the price, so these are going back.
RD Style Analisa Twisted Seam Mixed Knit Sweater
I have to admit that as soon as I peeked at my fix when it shipped, I decided against keeping this sweater. When it arrived, I tried it on anyway, knowing that making snap judgments from phone pictures isn’t always a great idea. Unfortunately, it still didn’t work for me. The sweater is pretty loose and boxy, and I knew I wouldn’t reach for it, even on weekends.

Pixley Kathy Striped Fit & Flare Dress
Once again, this dress came in answer to a request I made to Allisha for dresses with sleeves that I could wear to work. I’d seen this dress on other Stitch Fixers and had thought about requesting it specifically, but it turns out I didn’t have to.
This was T’s favorite item in my fix, and I’m a fan as well. It would be especially cute with a colored cardigan, scarf, statement necklace, or denim jacket, or even colorful flats.
So fix #9 is a 3/5, which is fantastic. By the way, in case you need a refresher, Stitch Fix is a subscription box that allows you to decide when you want to get your next one. You fill out an extensive style profile, link up your Pinterest style board for inspiration, and a stylist compiles a box of five items for you based on your size and style preferences. The styling fee is $20, but that applies toward any items you end up keeping. If you keep all five, you get another 25% off the total. (And if you do want to sign up, please use my referral link!)
