Stitch Fix Review #21: October 2016 II
Happy Fall Ya’ll! I’m loving all the fall fixes I’ve been seeing and I hope you’ve been finding a few things you love in yours! In this second October fix I asked Rachel to send olive and black skinny jeans. These are basic fall staples and I received my last pair of favorite black skinny jeans from Stitch Fix last year.
We’ll get to the review in a second, first I wanted to mention some exciting news coming your way from the company! In case you haven’t yet heard – Stitch Fix is now styling men! If you want to sign your guy (or brother, father, son, etc), up click here!
What is Stitch Fix:
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.

October 2016 II
Heartloom Kupie Lace Detail Blouse: Returned
Isn’t this blouse cool? I loved it. I thought the contrast of colors was great and I’m a sucker for lace too. I didn’t like that it was impossible to wear a bra without visible straps showing and the open back made this too inappropriate for work.
Pistola Caterina Frayed Hem Ankle Zip Skinny Jean: Kept
These are the BEST olive skinny jeans ever! I basically wore them with everything else that was sent with this fix so you’ll be seeing a lot more of them but I did want to show you just a photo of the jeans. They fit so well and I love the cut. I find them to be super comfy and flattering and the perfect color. I wore them for a 12 hour shift and they didn’t stretch out at all.
Lavender Brown Alaba V-Neck Silk Blouse: Returned
Though I didn’t love the print on this one and it was too pricey, it was still hard to send back. I really enjoyed the quality and fit of the blouse. It was super girly and had some “flounce” to it. It was longer in the back, which is always a plus for me.
Absolutely Pawny Pullover Sweater: Returned
This sweatshirt was supposed to fit “oversized” but as you can see, it really wasn’t. I wasn’t blown away by the pattern and pop of color in the shoulders and just overall felt underwhelmed by this one.
Mavi Jamie Skinny Jean: Returned
I asked for a nice pair of black skinny jeans to replace my current pair that are pretty worn. Unfortunately these weren’t winners. They did fit ok, a little big. The ombre coloring was interesting but not what I was looking for.
