After signing up what seemed like FOREVER ago, I finally got my first Stitch Fix! (Learn more here.) Basically, stylists hand pick five clothing items and accessories to match your taste, budget and lifestyle each month based on style profile you fill out, Pinterest boards you have, etc. Keep what you want, send back what you don’t want within three days. Pretty genius, right? It’s kind of similar to Le Tote, which I’ve tried recently as well, but there are some differences (I plan to write a post comparing the two and which I like better). In the meantime, I wanted to do a Stitch Fix review!
My first fix arrived and I was SO excited…by the way, there is a $20 styling fee that you are charged when you monthly fix ships…but that $20 fee is applied as credit towards anything you keep (and if you keep all five items, you get 25% off!) I had a $20 perk from Klout, so this fix was free!
All items are hand picked and contained a personalized note about why your stylist picked the items they did- very cool touch! A list of the items and their prices was also included, along with little “style flash cards” which give you a ideas on how to wear the items in a couple ways- loved that!
To start, I got a couple dresses. One was a blue Farah Fit & Flare Striped Dress ($68). The dress was too small on me, but I regardless, I really don’t care for fit & flare dresses because they never seem to flatter my figure.
The one on the right is the Cadee Strip Cap Sleeve Fitted Dress ($158).
I loved this dress- a fun, unique fit and great pattern! It fit like a glove, but I was one big meal away from not fitting in it! I would have kept this dress out of all my pieces, but I couldn’t see myself paying $158 for a dress. It’s just not gonna happen.
Next up was a coral Filbert 2/4 Sleeve Popover Blouse ($58). It was super cute and comfy but I feel like I already have enough popovers in my closet. Then there was a Pashma Lurez Detailed Boucle Moto Jacket ($88). I am always on the lookout for fun jackets/blazers for work, but it was way too short on my torso and itched like CRAZY! The Julia Flower Gem Statement Necklace ($38) rounded out the shipment. Absolutely gorgeous but a little too fancy for work I felt.
So there you have it! While I ended up not keeping anything, I essentially got this first fix free so no harm there. I do think the quality of the pieces are quite nice and fit my style. I was able to give detailed feedback to my stylist when sending back the items so I’m excited to see what I will get in my next shipment!
Want to try out Stitch Fix for yourself? It’s just $20 a month for the styling fee (which turns into a credit for anything you keep in your shipment for that month!) Sign up here. (and in full disclosure, I do get some referral credit- so thank you in advance!)
