Stitch Fix is an online styling service that offers members the expertise of a personal stylist to help update their wardrobe. To sign up for a Stitch Fix, you fill out a personal style profile that includes your sizing, style preferences, and clothing budget. Once your profile is complete, a stylist will send 5 pieces of clothing or accessories to your home for you to try out. You are able to keep the items for 3 days and try them out with your clothes, shoes, and accessories before making your final decision. Also, Stitch Fix sends you a styling card with each item depicting how to wear each item two ways: casually or dressed up.
You pay a $20 styling fee up front, but that money can be applied to any items that you keep from you Stitch Fix. Shipping is free both ways. If you keep the whole box, you get a 25% discount.
Check out the post below to see what I received in my November box!
The first item I pulled out of the box was the Andrew Marc Elodie Collarless Faux Leather Jacket in Black ($98)
I instantly loved this jacket! My husband, Nick, was also really excited about this piece. The fit was perfect since this month I specifically requested a larger size in outerwear. I was even happier when I saw the price tag! This was cheaper than I could have found a similar jacket in the mall. I immediately took the tags off this jacket and wore it out to dinner after trying on the rest of my fix. Verdict: Kept!
Second were the Ecru Christen Bootcut Trouser in Black ($138)
I really like the pattern and style of these pants. As a bonus, they were very comfortable. I would have kept the whole box this month, if only these pants had fit me correctly. 🙁 Sizing up or down would not have helped. These pants were a little too big in the waist and about 1/2 inch too snug in the hips. See all of the bunching in the pictures. They felt really nice, but they did not look good. Verdict: Returned!
Up next are the Eclair Leo Contrast Trim Blouse in Cobalt ($68)
This blouse was exactly like something I would choose for myself. I loved the bright blue and thought the contrast details and slightly short sleeves were really cute. I came really close to keeping this shirt and I would have if it had a slightly lower price tag (or if the rest of the box had worked). In the end, I just could not justify the price. VERDICT: Returned, with sadness!
Then, there was the Daniel Rainn Minal Heart Print Henley Blouse in Burgundy ($68)
When I first saw this blouse, I thought it was a super childish pattern and that I would feel embarrassed wearing it as an adult. The first time I tried it on, I felt the same way. Then, I styled it the way they show on the Stitch Fix card (like above pic) and it wasn’t too bad. I liked the color and fit, but honestly felt that the pattern would cause it to have limited utility. This is the only item in the box that just wasn’t my style. Verdict: Returned!
Last, but not least, was the Octavia Henry Birds on Branch Infinity Scarf in Black ($28)
I really liked the bird pattern and was immediately drawn to this scarf. The price was reasonable and I did not have a black and white scarf in my closet. Verdict: Kept!
This month, I had Jenny as my stylist. She has styled me for the past 3 months and I think that this box shows that she is starting to understand my style. Also, I think I have been giving more specific feedback, which is helping with item selection. Overall, I was really happy with this Fix.
My next Fix is coming the beginning of December and I cannot wait to see what my stylist sends! If you are interested in joining Stitch Fix, please consider using my referral link. I will receive a merchandise credit if you sign up for your first Fix.
Until the next Fix,
