Stitch Fix Review #24: December 2016 II
Happy Holidays! I hope you are enjoying the magic of this time of year with your family and friends. If you are still looking for some last minute gift ideas I do recommend a Stitch Fix gift card for a unique treat! Receiving this beautiful fix just a few days before Christmas myself certainly made it feel special. Not to mention there were some pretty cool things inside. I recently changed my Stitch Fix profile to include jewelry so I received my first pair of earrings in this one. I also requested sweaters and Rachel sent the most perfect one!
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.

Urbino Morganna Front Stitch Detail Pullover: Kept
This is probably my most favorite Stitch Fix keeper ever. If ever there were a sweater for me, it’s this one. It’s heavy, comfy, and provides full coverage. It’s also super casual but can also be dressed up. And, it’s in my favorite color to wear! Super affordable too. This is a keep keep keeper!
Urbino Nej Mesh Sleeve Detail Pullover: Returned
Another super adorable sweater! It was somewhat fitted which I tend to stay away from just as personal preference. The mesh detail was very pretty and certainly made the sweater interesting. I don’t know how warm it would have been though with those cutouts? There was no way to hide bra straps with this one – which you know is a deal-breaker for me.
The Korner Naoma Wool Sweater: Returned
I thought I would love this sweater when I first saw it but once I had it on it really wasn’t very flattering. You can see that it’s boxy on me. I did like the contrast of materials and the beautiful emerald color. The wool part wasn’t itchy so I liked that too. Ultimately it wasn’t flattering enough to justify the cost for me.
Pixley Eve Floral Skirt: Returned
So many ways to style this skirt! With such an interesting pattern and combo of colors the options are endless. The skirt is a pretty pink/peach color but all of the accent colors are bright and gorgeous too. These mid-length skirts are never flattering on my short frame and this one was no different. It is also double-lined and I thought it made the skirt look chunky rather than sleek.
Bay to Baubles Aries Fireball Fringe Drop Earrings: Returned
These earrings were perfect for the holidays and upcoming NYE. I do have a very similar pair though so I sent them back. My first accessory piece may have been a fail but I do look forward to receiving more!
The Holidays are here– give a Stitch Fix Gift Card!
