September Stitch Fix Style
Happy Labor Day weekend! I have a fresh batch of Stitch Fix [affiliate link] goodies to share with you. I actually meant to reschedule this Fix for a later date but forgot to do so. Not a big deal, though…now that we’re sliding into fall, I’m happy to receive a bunch of cool-weather pieces. Here’s a peek at what my stylist sent:
What is Stitch Fix?
Before we proceed, let me first explain a bit about Stitch Fix [affiliate link] in case you aren’t familiar with it. Stitch Fix is a subscription-based personal styling service for women, men, and kids. It’s free to create an account and complete a style profile. Once you schedule a Fix, a stylist selects five pieces of clothing, accessories, or shoes for you. Women’s clothing options include petite, plus, and maternity sizes. Once your Fix arrives, you have a few days to try the items on and decide which ones you want to purchase. They also now offer a shop where you can purchase items at any time outside of your Fix. Scroll to the bottom of this post to learn more.
September Styling Cards
My stylist, Selene, did a great job of selecting cozy fall items. Take a look at the styling cards for each item, along with notes on how to wear them.
The Skinny Jeans
Apparently Gen Z thinks skinny jeans are over? I truly could not care less. The Pistola Arielle Skinny Jean ($88) is working for me. The dark denim is good for a casual look but it can also be dressed up a little. For this photo shoot I paired the jeans with my Yesterdays San Diego tee and a pair of Trick ‘r Treat socks because this is how I dress on a typical day. The jeans fit well and are a good length on me. So the verdict is KEPT!
To the above outfit, I added the Bobeau Jemmy Brushed Open Pocket Cardigan ($58). This cardigan is similar to the Market & Spruce cardigan that I kept from my February 2021 Fix. The fabric is very soft and cozy, and I love the olive color. Plus: POCKETS. The cardigan looks great paired with the skinny jeans, as Selene suggested in her note. Though the style is super similar to the other cardigan, the verdict is KEPT because I could use another layering piece like this for fall.
Another cute fall layering piece is the Pink Clover Carson Crew Neck Button Detail Pullover ($46). The dark gray is a nice neutral shade that will go well with most items (though I probably wouldn’t wear it with my gray jeans because I don’t love wearing a monochromatic look). The buttons along the tops of the shoulders give the sweater a little visual interest. The pullover is fairly lightweight, so it’ll be good on its own or over a thin top in mildly cool weather. I’m pleased with this piece as well, so the verdict is KEPT again.
I’ve never received PJs from Stitch Fix before! Maybe these are new to their styling lineup. This is the Seeing Stars Gigi Sleep & Lounge Short Sleeve Notch Collar & Short Set ($44). The dark teal color and the autumn-ish leaf pattern are right up my alley. I can’t recall ever talking about PJs on my blog, but I do prefer sleeping in shorts rather than long pants; I feel like pant legs ride up in bed, which I find very annoying. So this sleep set is perfect for me! The verdict is KEPT.
I love a jumpsuit, so I was excited to see that Selene had sent me this Kaileigh Rochelle Knit Jumpsuit ($58). This piece fits me well and I absolutely love that it has pockets! The length is just right on me, and I also like the bow detail on the left side. The abstract graphic leaf print takes me out of my usual floral comfort zone in a good way. The jumpsuit doesn’t work well with a traditional bra, but I don’t necessarily feel like I need to wear one with it. This will be SUCH a great piece for fall and will look really cute paired with a denim jacket. The Bobeau cardigan should also work over it, but I didn’t think to try the two on together when I was doing this photo shoot. Clearly, the verdict is KEPT.
All in All…
I’m very pleased with this Fix! In case you weren’t keeping track, I decided to purchase all five items. So I did get the Buy All discount of 25% off, for a grand total of $200.50. That’s an average of $40.10 per item. I’d say that’s a good value for pieces that I know I will actually wear. Big thanks to Selene for nailing it!

You have several days to try everything on and decide what to keep or return. If you keep any items (even just one), they’ll deduct a $20 styling fee from the total cost.
