Stitch Fix Review #28: April 2017
Spring has apparently arrived at Stitch Fix which is great because I think it finally arrived here too! This one was full of spring styles and I couldn’t get over how beautiful the pieces all were together. Pastels have kind of been my jam lately so I loved the color palette in this fix. In my note to my stylist I mentioned to Rachel that this would be my “birthday” fix and let the rest up to her.
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.

Pistola Keriann Distressed Boyfriend Jean: Kept
Casual jeans in blush? Sold! These are the times when I know my stylist just “gets me”. Earlier this year Rachel sent an Olive pair of Pistola skinny jeans and I raved about how perfect the fit was and these are no different. They are great for this in between season and I honestly can’t stop wearing them.
Skies are Blue Maiya Halter Style Blouse: Returned
I was conflicted about this halter style top. I love the windowpane pattern and I know that’s why Rachel chose to send this to me. The halter fit felt kind of bulky on me and disproportionate in the chest area. I tried styling it with jackets and cardigans but ultimately I just didn’t feel like it flattered me.
Cooper & Ella Ella Textured Tie Shoulder Top: Returned
This is the cutest little tank ever. The tie details are adorable and I really liked the color of the top. The dotted pattern and open back just added to making it a pretty and polished top that could be worn with so many bottoms. I’d love to have kept this one but I couldn’t get over the price – it just didn’t match up so I cried a little bit as I folded it up and sent it back.
Skies are Blue Kadence Lace Detail Maxi: Returned
In the past I have criticized Stitch Fix for having some of the most unusual and visual unappealing floral patterns. I take that back – this dress was pretty and I adored the floral pattern for this time of year. I was tempted to keep this for bridal showers and other events this spring but the top half was baggy on me there are no adjustments on the straps.
Mia Kora Strappy Criss Cross Heel: Returned
Other than being a little uncomfortable there was really nothing wrong with these heels. The color was off for spring – I don’t think I would wear them often and they are probably better for early fall. I did like the chunky mid-height heel which made them easy to walk in.
Mother’s Day is around the corner– give a Stitch Fix Gift Card!
