Stitch Fix Review #34: October 2017 II
Over 30 fixes in and I still get giddy when I get that little e-mail saying my Fix has been shipped! Some of you have asked how I always know what is coming in my fix when it is shipped so I thought I’d share that big (little) secret. By the way – this is kind of the “cheater” method because the fix is supposed to be a surpise. If you are like me and need to cheat and peek at your fix before it arrives simply download the Stitch Fix app and select begin your “check-out”. In the app you can look at photos of the pieces before they arrive. Sometimes you can do this online but the photos aren’t always available. I’m totally a cheater and take a peek every time a fix is coming so I have an idea what is included in the box. Do you?
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 asked not to receive pleather, paisley patterns, 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.

October 2017 II:
Cupcakes and Cashmere: Undecided
I just love this dress for fall. The colors are spot on for this season and even though I’m not quite sure I’d pick this up for myself I’m so glad Emilie did. The longer I had it on the more I liked it and started to feel all the ways this could work for fall. I was a little disappointed in the length – I wish it was just a little bit longer to make this appropriate for work and other casual functions. That’s why I’m undecided. Do I keep it despite the shorter length?
Truly Poppy Annamaria Pleated Woven Detail Sweater: Returned
This sweater is so my style. If I were wearing anything other than scrubs to work I would have scooped this sweater up and added it to my closet. I love the layered style but especially think the pleated neckline is super cute. I do already have a similar grey sweater and figured one is enough for now.
Laju Lydia Embroidered Cargo Jacket: Returned
The embroidered trend is something I keep trying, unsuccessfully. There is nothing wrong with this cargo – it’s beautiful. I thought it was well-made and the detail is very pretty. Overall it wasn’t necessarily in line with my style and this is almost one of those pieces that I felt like I wouldn’t do justice by trying to wear.
ASTR Claudine Bishop Sleeve Blouse: Returned
My favorite part about this blouse was the detailing on the shoulders. Not only was the rouching pretty but it really made me notice how well-made the blouse was. The rusty rose color is lovely for fall and I’m always a lover of boho tops. Fit was once again a bit of an issue. On me, the sleeves were a little too long and baggy and the blouse was too short along the sides.
Sole Society Libry Velvet Gem Loafer: Returned
Velvet is back friends and I would absolutely consider a pair of velvet flats, especially in this beautiful emerald color. The reason I did not opt to keep these was because I did not love the bold gem accents or the cut/shape of this particular pair.
