Stitch Fix Review #30: July 2017
We are in the heat of summer and a more appropriate fix couldn’t have shown up at my doorstep. Each piece was perfect for a hot summer day and could be worn right out of the box so I was pretty happy with my stylist’s seasonally appropriate selections. I was also super excited to see a little bit of everything I wanted to try: ruffles, embroidery, off-the-shoulder. So many bright colors and cuteness loaded in this fix, right? Also, you may (or may not) have noticed I’m no longer getting my previous stylist, Rachel. For now I’m just going with it and enjoying receiving fixes with new perspectives and approaches on my style. It’s O.K. to change things up every now and then – isn’t that essentially the purpose of this service?
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.

Nakamol Orai Leather Wrap Bracelet: Kept
I actually thought this bracelet was blush pink in color based on the photo sent so I was a little bummed when I opened the box. Once I tried it on though, I was surprised at how much I liked it. The tan color makes it versatile so it can be worn with many different things and the bracelet itself is very comfortable while making a subtle statement.
Rebecca Minkoff Iris Off Shoulder Dress: Returned
I’m sorry the dress is so wrinkly! It was sent that way so there wasn’t much I could do to fix that for trying it on. The dress fit well and was so comfortable. The off shoulder sleeves stayed in place and the pockets were an amazing casual addition. If I could change anything I would get rid of the big tie belt – it was just a bit much for me. There also seemed to be quite a bit of excess material around the bodice of the dress that made it feel bunchy and was sort of unflattering. I knew I’d be sending this back because I own a very similar dress already but I did really like this one!
Rebecca Minkoff Coral Ruffle Detail Top: Returned
This top – I so wanted to love it, I just couldn’t. The fit is all wrong on me. Too tight with an awkward fit around the chest and too loose around the midsection. Maybe a size up would have looked better but then it would have been really big and boxy in the midsection. The top itself is adorable and so soft.
Generation Love Maria Embroidered Crochet Knit Top: Returned
Dear John Finnegan Cuffed Shorts: Returned
I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this embroidered top! Unfortunately, like a few other pieces in this fix, the fit was all wrong. The embroidery is adorable. The shirt though, is see-through and too short. I also didn’t like the crochet trim along the bottom. Between the detail on the shoulders and all down the back I just felt the trim was unnecessary.
The shorts were too small. I did stuff myself into them for pictures but I was very uncomfortable. Maybe a size up would have fit better, but even so – I’m not sure how I feel about the yellow. Still on the fence about the color. I do think the shorts are a great length.
