Stitch Fix Review #36: December 2017
Receiving a fix in the mail this week was like getting a little surprise Christmas present!! I think my stylist realized this and took on a festive theme with this December Fix. I was pretty excited about each of the pieces I pulled out of the box this month and I think it’s obvious why: each was just so lovely and comfortable. Because we’re in the middle of the Holidays and super busy I naturally forgot to give Emilie any direction or suggestions for this month and so (once again) she had free reign. Surprise fixes are usually super fun and this one was no different. Now, lets dive into my December 2017 Stitch Fix Review.
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.

Collective Concepts Gretchen Dress: Returned
Shop This Look:
Just like the beautiful floral shift dress from my October fix, I loved this dress. The bell sleeves were a pretty added bonus too because I had been begging Emilie to keep trying that trend. I thought the color was beautifully toned-down and would work for both the holidays and fall. I did send this back because by the time I received it I had already purchased all of my holiday outfits and didn’t need another. If I had endless income to spend on my wardrobe this absolutely would have been a keeper.
Daniel Rainn Becru Lace Detail Blouse: Kept
Level 99 Knoxx Sueded Skinny Pant: Returned
Shop This Look:
This top was a surprise yes for me. I’ve been declining “business casual work tops” from Stitch Fix since I started my new job and no longer needed any. But then I tried this one on and just really loved it. I think part of the reason I couldn’t give it up was the beautiful color. After I paired it with emerald green I loved how much it popped. The suede-like pants were not keepers only due to size. I think it’s time for me to just bite the bullet and update my sizes in my size profile as sizing has been an issue for the last few fixes. These were too tight on me but I was worried a size up would be too loose and bunch so I did not swap.
Stitch & Knot Nadine Tie Front Pullover: Returned
Shop this Look:
If I had made a bet on which piece I would have kept from this fix it would have been this sweater. I’ve been asking for a wrap sweater for-like-ever! The tie front was just a pretty accent. The only reason this one went back was due to sizing. I was unable to exchange this one for a size up or I totally would have.
Loveappella Maha Velvet Drawstring Knit Hoodie: Returned
I adored this little velvet drawstring hoodie. How cute is the velvet detailing? It was so so soft too! I wasn’t sure how much I’d actually wear this after the holidays were over. And, again, I would have preferred a looser fit (just personal preference) so this one went back too.
