I asked all of you lovely readers who follow me on Facebook and Twitter if you wanted me to continue these Stitch Fix posts. The response was overwhelmingly positive, so I’m back with another Stitch Fix review!
-Stitch Fix is an online personal styling service for women. First, you create your own style profile. Then you are sent five hand-picked items.
-You are under no obligation to keep the items sent to you; you have three days to decide what you want to keep and what you’d like to return. You send back the items you don’t want for free in the included postage-paid, addressed mailing bag.
-You can receive a Fix as often as you’d like. Some women are on a monthly auto ship, other women schedule their Fixes as they are needed.
-You provide detailed feedback after each Fix to help your stylist learn what you want, how things fit you, etc.
I think that covers it! I have been getting monthly Fixes for 5 months now, and I love this service. It’s so convenient to get hand-picked items sent to me each month, not to mention tons of fun! I get so excited when I see the Stitch Fix box on my porch–I look forward to it every month! It’s been a great way to slowly build my wardrobe and keep it up-to-date.
If you are interested in trying this service, I would love it if you would use my referral link. Stitch Fix has a great referral program for everyone–for each new person you refer, you get a $25 credit. Pretty sweet! Here’s my link if you are interested. Thanks so much!
So let’s get to this month’s Fix. I have to preface by saying that I wish Stitch Fix gave a little more time to decide what I’d like. The first day I opened my box, I looked at everything and wasn’t overly impressed. Nothing got me too excited, but I knew I couldn’t make any decisions until I tried everything on and I didn’t have time that day. I didn’t have time until it was time to check out online on the third day. I wasn’t in the best mood and quickly tried everything on and my mood dictated what I kept. Given more time I would have possibly kept more because later that night when I tried things on again for pictures, I wasn’t sure if I made the right choices. Oh well!
Daniel Rainn Jerome Crochet Trim Silk Blouse $74
Unfortunately, I really dislike burgundy. It’s just one of my least favorite colors. This blouse was definitely judged too harshly initially, though. I think in my feedback I wrote: “nothing about this blouse appeals to me.” My poor stylist. I really was in a bad mood. In reality, it does have some cute details. I wouldn’t have kept it in this color, though. Just not for me. Return!
41Hawthorn Sloane Colorblock A-Line Ponte Shift Dress $78
Isn’t this a cute dress? I really like it. This is one that I really wasn’t sure if I should keep. I wear dresses all the time in the summer, but not as much the rest of the year. My stylist said, “The 41Hawthorn Colorblock Ponte Shift Dress is a great classic piece that is fitted. It will be so great for working!” If I worked full-time and in a different job, I do think it’d be perfect. I would have worn this when I taught elementary school, but right now I am teaching at a Montessori preschool. I am pretty much sitting on the floor the whole time. Dresses and skirts are not the best for this position. Also, you may not be able to tell from the picture, but it was a little too big in the chest/underarm area. I would have had to have it tailored, so I decided it wasn’t worth it. Return!
Tart Jolene Striped French Terry Sweatshirt $88
I liked the color and the stripes on this sweatshirt, but that’s about it. I didn’t like the fit or cut of this at all. I guess because it’s maybe a bit too small in the length and the arms? Plus, $88 for a sweatshirt? I don’t know. I would have to really love it to justify that cost. Return!
19 Cooper Lincoln Button-Up Long-Sleeve Blouse $68
Recognize that skirt from last month’s Fix? Let me just say that looking at this picture I only want to yank it down as the bunchiness at the top is driving me crazy! 🙂 Meghan was my picture taker again this month and she was not interested in taking pictures, so I didn’t bother to look at the shots and just had to go with what I had. So this blouse. I tried this on in a haste with the jeans I had on and though, “Eh, no thanks.” Later, after I’d checked out, I read what the stylist had to say about it: “The 19 Cooper Button-up Long Sleeve Blouse is a great piece that will pair perfectly with your polka dot skirt from your last Fix.” In my feedback last month I said I liked the skirt but didn’t have much to wear with it, so she sent me this. Whoops! Later when I tried it on with the skirt, I realized I did like it with the skirt, but I’d already checked out. I guess since I didn’t love it initially, it’s probably better I sent it back. Return!
41Hawthorn Benson 3/4 Ruched Sleeve Blazer $78
Even though I only kept one item, I’m really happy with that one item I kept. Like I said earlier, I feel like I’m slowly building my wardrobe with key pieces. I love that aspect of Stitch Fix. So, what do you think of my choices this month?
