Stitch Fix Review #11: March 2016 II
This is my second box this month and the second time I’ve basically just told my stylist Rachel to send me spring things. Though my requests were vague, I did do a bunch of pinning this month and let my stylist run with it. Throughout most of the year I’m pretty settled in my own style but Spring is a fun season and my favorite time to “play” around with trends. Right now I’m finding Stitch Fix and my stylist to be super helpful!
In case your fashion addiction has led to the termination of your wifi and cellphone services and/or you’ve been living under a rock, Stitch Fix announced this month they are now also providing SHOES! This is actually quite funny to me because when I first signed up almost a year ago now I thought they did provide shoes and an amazing pair of wedges was one of the first items I pinned to my Stitch Fix board lol! I’ve looked through the examples on Pinterest and it seems like they provide a huge variety of shoes.
Rachel sent me a F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S pair in this fix, I can’t wait to show you! But first, let me tell you all about Stitch Fix:
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.

Pixley Cyprian Henley Blouse: Undecided
When I peeked on my Stitch Fix app my first impression of this henley was that it was another print I didn’t like. In person, it grew on me. The print is actually kind of ugly. With that said, it’s white, which I thought was pretty and the odd combo of colors makes this fun to wear with bright, bold pieces. Like the emers I kept from my last fix or these mango colored shorts. There is a pop of electric blue in the print too, which I thought would look cool with a pair of cobalt pants. The top is sheer and needs a cami underneath. It’s also a bit longer in the back. I haven’t yet sent back my items and I remain torn on this one – I like it but I’m not sure if it’s enough to keep it… thoughts?
P.s. excuse the scary man hand in the photo LOL I know they are bad! It’s the price I pay for working in healthcare and having to wash them 600x a day. Sorry!
Gilli Kodi Jersey Maxi Dress: Returned
I really loved the Grecian style neckline on this maxi, it’s such a flattering look! The material was very flowy but soo clingy. I like the combo of colors on this, aren’t they pretty? I sent it back because I really don’t like paisley…..
Pixley Triste Swing Skirt: Kept
Keeping this skirt was my intentional move to step a little out of my comfort zone. In case you haven’t noticed, I send almost every skirt back (even ones I love) but Rachel keeps trying. This skirt was a good fit, perfect length and it wasn’t skintight. Patterns, as you also may have realized, are another thing I have a tough time accepting – but this simple chevron stripe was something I could work with. I played around with jewel tones for work, and thought it looked professional and comfortable. For a fun casual look, I’ll try it with a printed tee.
Pixley Waldorf Lasercut Hem Blouse: Kept
I knew I was keeping this shirt before it even arrived. It’s unique and fun. I love the lasercut. I probably should have asked for a size up only for a longer option because it does rise up when I lift my arms.
Diba Jessica Floral Print Wedges: Returned
How gorgeous are these? They epitomize spring this season and my stylist was right on with sending these! The floral pattern is pretty. I love the combo wedge and ankle strap too. The wedge is very small, so these are perfect for taller women or those who “don’t do heels”. I sent them back for a few reasons, the first was that they were a little too big. Also, they were open-toed – which I can’t wear to work and that’s primarily where I’d want to be wearing these. And third, the ankle strap was a little painful for just the few moments I had them on.
Overall, this was another happy fix! I’m exited to try both my skirt and top out at work. I’m still undecided about the floral blouse, though I think it’ll probably go back. Next fix I think I’ll ask for a casual fix and hopefully find some great weekend pieces.
