Stitch Fix Review #40: March 2018
Stitch Fix review #40: March 2018
One of these days I will give my stylist a little direction for putting together a fix. This one though was another beautifully curated collection put together entirely by my stylist without any help from me. She really knocks it out of the park when it comes to selecting pretty and fun pieces – which is what makes Stitch Fix so fun for me. Even though there were some fit and timing issues with the items I still overall felt like this fix was a winner. Check out the review below!
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.

Bailey44 Botanical Off-the-Shoulder Shift Dress
Shop the Look:
I love everything about this dress. Normally a pattern like this would teeter on being almost too old-fashioned or resembling something like a curtain or couch from the 40’s but somehow it actually puts off more of a boho vibe that I just love! Wildflowers are my favorite so I could just look at it all day long. The peculiar mix of colors is a step out of my usual neutral comfort zone but I really find them pretty in this dress. After saying all of these lovely things I should mention I did have to send it back. Price was the primary factor for returning but fit also wasn’t that great – the under-layer was very tight on me and the dress was borderline too short for me to wear anywhere comfortably. Insert sad face here.
Cosmic Blue Love Dustin Ankle Zip Detail Joggers
Shop the Look:
These pants are something I would have never picked out to try for myself. And as I’ve said a thousand times: this is why Stitch Fix is great. Every now and then your stylist will make you step out of your comfort zone in the most brilliant way. Once I had these on I was impressed with how cute they actually were. I’d automatically assumed I wasn’t cool enough to pull these off and that they would most definitely make me look super frumpy. I didn’t think they were frumpy and it wasn’t hard to style them at all. After thinking about price and how often I would actually probably wear them I did opt to send them back (even though I’m still debating whether or not that was the right decision).
Michael Stars Alastair Chambray Side Lace-Up Tank
Velvet by Graham and Spencer Telinna Cargo Jacket
Shop the Look:
So obviously the top is just too small for me. I went back and updated my sizes a few fixes ago and I’m not sure if my stylist just hasn’t looked or if I need to go back and take another look. Overall fit has been an issue for me for several fixes now and it’s time to just admit that extra 10 pounds is taking a little longer to come off then originally planned….sigh.
The cargo jacket is awesome and perfect for spring! The fit was right on for this one and I loved the color. I own a very very similar jacket that I purchased from target (at a much more reasonable price) last year so this one went back.
Laju Janero Ruffle Sleeve Detail Cotton Top
Shop the Look:
Ok so when I planned the outfit for this top I guess I didn’t realize how cute it actually was. I cut out the whole rest of the outfit in the photo because I didn’t want to distract from how adorable this off the shoulder piece looked! Originally I just thought, “oh great, another checkered tank, didn’t I just get one of these?” And then I popped it on and all the fun started happening. Somehow I managed to not be able to style the most versatile piece in the entire fix but hey, you totally see the potential there right? I bought about 487 off the shoulder tops over the last spring and summer and had to take a personal vow to not purchase anymore. It’s probably better that way. This top deserves a home that can actually style it…
