Stitch Fix Review #25: February 2017
Doesn’t it seem like it’s been the longest time since my last fix? The truth is, I did get one in January that I never posted about because it was a 0/5 and I was too sick with bronchitis to take photos. This time around, I’m recovering from the flu but I did muster up enough energy to put together a review for you. I’ve been pinning lots of sweaters and also specifically requested a moto jacket so I was eagerly awaiting the arrival of this fix. Check out the full review below.
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.

Teeberry & Weave Joella Pleated Mixed Material Pullover: Kept
I’m a sucker for pleats so it took me no time at all to decide this sweater was a keeper. There’s something so feminine about pleats and I love the idea of adding them as a subtle hemline. I especially liked the color of this sweater because it’s versatile enough for both winter and this coming spring.
Laila Jayde Busby Cowl Neck Zipper Detail Knit Top: Returned
I’d been pinning lots of sweaters in this brilliant hunter green color so I was pretty excited to see this one coming in my fix. I really did like the asymmetric cowl neck and zipper details. Unfortunately the sweater was overall a bit too small/tight for me.
Edyson Maisha Ponte and Faux Leather Jacket: Returned
I pinned the faux leather jacket that I really wanted to try in the hopes that I wouldn’t get sent this more popular version. The mixing of materials and all the busyness in this one made it seem overwhelming and of poor quality to me. I definitely want to try a faux leather moto jacket but this just wasn’t the one for me.
Threads 4 Thought Rylie Crochet Detail Knit Top: Returned
I’m not entirely sure what I’ve said to my stylist or in my style profile but it seems like I receive an awful lot of these crochet detail tops and I never keep them. I know I say this all the time but I really won’t wear anything that requires a fancy bra contraption and the only option for this one is a strapless. It was also too large for me.
Rails Shar Button Down Dress: Returned
And on the other end of the spectrum, this dress was too small for me. Well actually, the back was appropriate length but for some reason the front was very short – sorry for the pasty winter legs. Rachel is right though, rails does make some of the softest plaid, this dress was super soft and comfy.
