Stitch Fix Review #22: November 2016
I’ll just let the collage photo speak for itself. Obviously, this fix was filled with great pieces! Last fix I couldn’t stop talking about the greatest olive skinny jeans that were sent and this month I received the best black skinnies – I’m super excited to show you! I also checked another top off of my stitch fix wishlist (thanks for listening Rachel, you’re the best!). We’ll get to the review in a second, first let me tell you all about Stitch Fix:
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.

Market & Spruce Evella Boatneck Top: Kept
This top has been on my Pinterest board since the end of summer so I was pretty surprised to see it coming in this fix! Dreams really do come true and all of that. Unless fit was an issue I knew this was going to be a keeper, and it was! There’s something about simple stripes and the denim hem detail that makes this a perfect basic staple tee. I can’t wait to dress it both up and down.
Market & Spruce Brookline Mix Material Sweater: Returned
Genetic LA Serena Skinny Jean: Returned
These are hands down the softest pants I’ve ever worn. You need to request these! They had a flattering low rise fit too and I found them to be really comfortable on. I’d been asking for a pair of nice black skinny jeans for a few months now but I finally bit the bullet and bought a different pair a week before these showed up. I don’t regret my purchase because I do love the ones I picked but I will say these would have been keepers for me if I had still been on the hunt.
My experience with stitch fix sweaters hasn’t been great – I don’t think I’ve kept a single one sent my way. But this one, I loved. It was thick, oversized, and great quality. I adored the zipper detail on the back and the fact that it could adjust it. And as we all know, burgundy/wine is so my stitch fix color right now. With that said, I did end up sending this back because I already have way too many sweaters in this color (I’m too embarrassed to tell you JUST how many) in my closet.
Papermoon Harni Cutout Detail Knit Top: Returned
The photos of this top turned out good – I’m diggin this outfit looking at it now. I wish I had felt that way when I was trying it on. I actually liked the dull green/grey color but wasn’t into the black border along the neckline. I also thought the cutout detail in the back was funky and flattering but not really my style.
Greylin Rellie Velvet Blouse: Returned
Rachel sent this crushed velvet top because she knows how obsessed I am with neutrals. Only, I couldn’t really figure out how to style it. I used my style cards for this one and paired it with a pink blazer, distressed denim, and lace-up flats. It turned out cute but the top still felt a little too beyond me right now. I don’t know if that makes sense to you? Maybe I needed more time with it.
