Stitch Fix Review #37: January 2018
We’ve officially entered that yucky period of time after the Holidays and before Spring. I’m definitely starting to feel the pull of the cold abyss these next few months will hold. It’s also an awkward time to receive fixes because the holidays are all over and as much as I want to dive into what’s new for spring it’ll still be winter for quite some time. Liz did a really nice job this round stocking me up on winter pieces in colors that give me some hope that nicer days are ahead. The pretty mix of pastels in this fix allow these pieces to transition into the Spring months flawlessly.
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 clothing and accessory items picked for you by a 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’ll have 3 business days to decide which items to keep. A prepaid return package is always included if you need to send items back. I simply slip my returns into the mailbox or arrange for USPS to pick-up larger items from my front door. To purchase the pieces you want to keep, 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. And lastly, if you want to step out of your comfort zone and let someone else give you style suggestions based on information you’ve given them, this is what Stitch Fix is all about!
HOW TO SIGN UP:
Your Stitch Fix stylists will need to get to know you, so begin by creating an account and taking a personal style quiz and filling out a 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 stylist 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 stylist’s 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.

Free People Palisades Textured Off-The-Shoulder Top: Kept
Somehow I have no tops in my closet in this color. I took Liz’s advice and styled it with a sporty pair of leggings and sneakers for a cozy but functional outfit for running errands or completing chores at home. The top is a bit oversized but for me that’s a bonus.

Pistola Leann Distressed Step Fray Hem Skinny Jean: Kept
Nakamol Dirulo Wrap Bracelet: Returned
I’ve loved every single pair of pistola jeans that have been sent my way and these probably take the cake! This pair didn’t let me down with fit but it was the little details that made them keepers. The raw hem with step down detail in the back is super cool and we all know I’m a sucker for slit knee distressing! The bracelet is beautiful and I especially love the druzy accent. I did opt to return it because it was so similar to the other Nakamol bracelet sent to me in this fix.

CoffeeShop Safi Jacket: Returned
This season I’m in the market for a light pink jacket and this was a pretty choice from my stylist. I think ultimately I’d like something in a paler pink with a knee-length cut. I was also a little concerned that the cropped fit might not keep me warm enough so I think I’ll hold out for something closer to what I want.

Ink Love & Peace Zalin Slit Back Knit Top: Returned
From the front this one just looks like a simple cozy long-sleeved tee. The real party is in the back though! For me, it’s too much of a party. My derriere needs no extra accentuation so it certainly did not need this tee that opens up right around it.
