Stitch Fix Review #9: February 2016
This was probably the most conflicting Stitch Fix for me! As I sit here writing this I’m still undecided about the entire thing. I’m hoping that as I write out my thoughts on the pieces I’ll come to a decision. I did receive a pair of white skinny jeans that I’ve been asking for, and some other great things I’m really excited to show you. First, scroll down and check out the note from my stylist Rachel and you’ll see why I love her.
What is it:
Stitch Fix is a monthly (or semi-regularly, it’s up to you) personal stylist service. The most popular option is a monthly home delivery of 5 items, clothing and accessories, to your door, picked by your stylist. The monthly stylist fee is $20 (yep, that’s it!) and if you choose to keep any of the items, that $20 goes toward your purchase. Once your Fix arrives, you get 3 business days to decide which items to keep, and which, if any, you want to send back. If you need to send items back, they provide you with a prepaid package that can be placed in your mailbox so you literally have to do nothing. To purchase the clothing/accessories you want to keep, you log into your online account, and select the ones you’re keeping and checkout. That’s it!
If you are someone who hates shopping, but doesn’t mind someone shopping for you, this is perfect. If you are someone who needs to be shopped for – then you need this service. If you’re intrigued and you want to step out of your comfort zone and let someone else give you suggestions based on information you’ve given them about what you like, this is what this service is all about!
How to sign up:
Your Stitch Fix stylists will need to get to know you, so you begin by creating an account and taking a personal style quiz and filling out your style profile. This is kind of fun and gives you quite a bit of say in what shows up at your door each month. **You will select your desired price ranges during this part as well. All of your answers and preferences can be changed at any time.
You should also start a Pinterest Stitch Fix board for your stylists to see what your personal style is all about. Be specific and detailed with what you post on there, that will help guide them. There’s a spot in your style profile to paste the link to your Pinterest board.
You can leave the stylists additional messages if you are looking for something specific to arrive in your box – for example, if you have a wedding to go to, or will be going on vacation, job interviews, etc. Your stylists will send you options for these events. You can request to NOT receive specific items in your boxes (I just requested to no longer receive jewelry). I asked not to receive pleather or real fur…
You’ll select when you’d like your box delivered each month (or how often), and it’ll arrive on your doorstep 🙂 You’ll get an email a week or two before, asking if you have any last minute requests for your stylist, and another email when your box has shipped. Once it arrives, you’ll have 3 business days to decide on which items you’ll keep or send back.

DL1961 Moscow Skinny Jean: Undecided
I was the MOST excited for these jeans! Right out of the box I could tell they were quality, structured, and well-made. I had essentially asked that they not be see-through or thin so Rachel followed through on being picky with what she sent. The downside – they are super pricey. They are also a little bit big. They bunch at the knees and are a little long. From looking at the materials I am pretty sure they’d shrink up perfectly. But price. Sigh. These two springy looks are killing me, how perfect, right?
Papermoon Calhun Wide Lace Trim Knit Top: Returned
This top is gorgeous! I did wish it was a tiny bit longer. The arms are sheer, as you can see but the top is otherwise double-layered and doesn’t require an additional shirt underneath. I love the lace, so pretty. The only reason I didn’t keep this one is because I bought a semi-similar top for work from a previous fix and I want to focus on wearing that one more. I’d consider keeping this one if I choose not to keep the skinny jeans though…..
Honey Punch Leandro Plaid Print Split Neck Top: Undecided
This little plaid top is going to be great for transitioning into spring. It’s very light and I liked the colors. As Rachel suggested it would go nicely with the white skinny jeans as well though I’ll probably only keep it if I sent those back, because of budget. I paired it with my A GOLD E jeans from a prior fix.
RD Style Hollen Raglan Pullover Sweater: Returned
I only took one photo of this top, I’m sorry. Truthfully, this whole review “shoot” was a bit of a disaster. I was sick and had zero energy and this was my biggest “f*#@ it” moment….. In case it wasn’t evident, it was a rainy day making it pretty hard to get great images for you too. Probably the worst thing about Stitch Fix is the 3 day window that you have to complete your order and send unwanted items back, it’s hard to make decisions in that time. I’m totally feeling it this round as I struggle with making up my mind. It’s also hard if the weather doesn’t cooperate. Obviously asking for an extension due to blogging, schedule, and weather constraints would be laughable and obnoxious but, at least you know why the photos suck, if they do. Anyway, I digress….
I think the sweater was a little too small for me. I couldn’t tell if it was black or blue (I think because I was sick and not seeing very well). I would have sworn black but the invoice says blue. And it does look blue in this photo. It’s cute. There was a white stripe down the center of the back I wish I had taken a photo of for you. At first I didn’t think I wanted this (because I thought it was black) but as I sit here now and type I’m realizing it is a super cute transition to spring sweater because it’s super nautical. I do have something like it so I’ll probably still send it back.
41Hawthorn Renesme Graphic Print Faux Wrap Dress
This was the only item I really did not like at all. I photographed it because I know many of you will like it and want to know what it’s like on. It fit well, it just wasn’t my style, I really didn’t like the print. The dress is form fitting around the top and midsection and looser at the bottom, as you can see. It’s made of rayon and polyester so it’s clingy.
I will update and let you know what I decide so stay tuned! What did you think about this fix?
