Fix #1 gives you all the information about the Stitch Fix service, if you'd like to read up on it.
My requests for this month were:
- more warm clothes (since it is still chilly in my neck of the woods)
- a flowing skirt of some kind
- a blush colored top I can wear with my two pairs of red pants (both from Stitch Fix - see November 2014 link above for more)
- no more jewelry unless the quality is better (I was severely disappointed with the 2 necklaces in Fix #10).

There were some interesting items in here. A pair of pants, a sweatery type item, a blouse, and a few mysteries. Let's hang them up and do ye olde try-on! As many know who have read my reviews before, I NEVER look at the prices before I try anything on. I want to base my judgment purely on how much I like or dislike an item of clothing.
1) The first item I tried on were the Baxley Skinny Jean by Kut From the Kloth for $88.
They were made from a stretchy denim of some kind with cute little zippered details under the front pockets. I tried them on.
If a pair of pants looks really good on me and fits like a glove, I am usually in the mood to buy. One less pair of pants that I will have to find on my own in the horror show that is mall shopping. I consider myself a 'hard-to-fit' body type for pants...it may not look it in the picture, but I consistently have problems with jeans that need to be one size larger in the hip than in the waist. These pants fit great.
So, I left them on and decided to wait until the end (and after I'd had a look at the prices) to help me make my decision. MAYBE.
2) Next item I tried on was the Talulah Plaid Print Henley Top by Papermoon for $44.00. Check it:
Sadly, it was another thin, blousy item, which is too cold for my current weather (and won't be wearable for months). Also, I was disappointed to see no tank to wear under it, as it is a very see-through item. I guess I should've kept that awesome nude tank Stitch Fix sent me months ago. Sigh...why did I return it???
But I do try everything on. I found a gray tank in my dresser and gave it a whirl.

3) The next item I tried on was the Adel Plaid Trimmed Thermal by Threads 4 Thought for $48. I thought this looked fun and casual on the hanger.

4) The next item I tried on was the Penny Draped Colorblock Cardigan by 41Hawthorn for $68. I instantly loved this cardi when I hung it up.
5) The last item was the Lillah Quilted Ponte Jacket by Mystree for $78. I actually had been thinking about how I needed a less bulky jacket for spring.
All right, so where are we at the end of all this? I had one definite YES (the jacket) and two MAYBES (pants & thermal top). What to do? Prices do come into play at this point...so I did look at the receipt to get a feel for what everything cost.

PANTS - NO!
Next was the thermal top. It was cute. A little plain, but cute. Casual weekend wear is always nice to have. It was flattering. And I could pair it easily with other items in my wardrobe including some other cardigans I have. Also, it would be a good top to wear with a fun piece of jewelry or the right scarf. The price was also pretty decent.
TOP - YES!
The one part of this equation you do not know about is that my husband bought me a $50 Stitch Fix Gift Card for Valentine's Day. That, in essence, made the jacket practically free (I paid the $20 styling fee, which if subtracted from the $78 cost, leaves $8 for me to pay - after the gift card). Therefore, I felt more justified in purchasing the thermal top. Overall, I would only spend $56 (plus the $20 styling fee) for both items. Not a bad deal.

Full disclosure: I will receive a $25 credit after you order your first Fix. Thanks for considering it!
FINAL STATEMENT: I found it interesting that my stylist did not send me anything that I asked for. LOL. No blush tops/sweaters and no skirts. Guessing there was nothing available in my size that fit those requests. I will keep asking for those two items. However, she did go back to my desire for a colorful cardigan and more Kut From the Kloth pants (as they fit me very well), so I will give her points for that. Plus, bonus points for sending me a jacket that I honestly needed (and she knew NOTHING about)! Looking forward to March and my next fix. Until then, thanks for stopping by!
