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.
Since Sara did such an amazing job styling my last fix, I requested to have her style this box too! She did not disappoint me and I feel like she has a really good grasp on my style. I appreciate how she is very attentive to my Pinterest board and sends items that are exactly my style! This month, she even sent me a pair of jeans she owns because the type I requested were not available! I’m so glad to have a stylist with such great taste! So, let’s show you what I got!
1) DL1961 Hillary Skinny Jean ($164)
Sara sent me these jeans because she has them herself and thinks they are great! I agree! I know many of you may be a little scared off by the price, but I’m the kind of girl who thinks great jeans are worth splurging on because you wear them all the time and a good pair will last a few years. These jeans contain Tencel® fibers, which allow the jeans to have the perfect stretch and fit and feel super soft (almost like velvet). Jeans with Tencel® hold their shape, which means they do not gap at the top of the zipper, are less likely to slide down throughout the day, and look AMAZING, especially from the rear view! What more could a girl want? I’m always happy to get high quality items like these jeans in a Fix! Verdict: KEPT!
2) Brixon Ivy James Laser Cut Dress ($78)
The style and length of this dress are perfect! The cobalt is fun for spring and I love the laser cut detailing at the bottom. The fabric is soft and light, which makes it perfect for warmer weather. I could see this dress going to the office, a bridal shower, or on a date night with my husband. The fit on this dress is a little off because there is some extra fabric up top under the bust area, which is a little strange. I think that short dresses fit better when they run in actual sizes (2,4,6,8, etc.) rather than is S, M, or L like this one. I may have sent this dress back if I did not like the rest of the fix so well, but it only ended up costing $27.50 after I kept my favorites. At that price, I can pay for an alteration. The dress looks nice paired with yellow Kate Spade pumps and a multicolor Kate Spade necklace. I also like it with black shiny Payless pumps and a shiny black and white polka dot Kate Spade belt. Verdict: KEPT!
3) Pixley Navy Laural Geo Print Maxi Dress ($78)
This is a dress straight from my Pinterest board and the exact style of the maxi from last fix. I like the fun pattern and could definitely get some wear out of this dress at the office and beyond. Maxi dresses are so comfortable and the perfect wardrobe addition for spring and summer! I paired this one with a chunky wooden necklace and Jack Rogers flats. Verdict: KEPT!
4) Papermoon Navy Kualo Bow Back Knit Top ($44)
This top looks like several items from my Pinterest boards and is in a stripe pattern that I love! Unfortunately, the sleeves were too short and the material looked kind of cheap to me. The shirt does look very nice in pictures, but it did not win me over in person. However, my husband really likes the shirt and it looks great how Sara styled it with the DL1961 jeans. I think this item is growing on me. Verdict: KEPT (because it is free)!
5) Zad Omar Wood Oval Statement Necklace ($34)
This necklace was the most intriguing item in my box this month. Marnie had chunky wood statement necklaces on the runway this spring, so they are an upcoming trend. When I saw the necklace, I knew it was outside of my style comfort zone, but I quickly realized it is very versatile. I love it dressed up with my black pumps, Brixon Ivy Allegra Skirt from a previous fix, and Joie blouse. It also looks great worn casually with the Pixley maxi dress. However, the best part is that it can be used to style a Pinko shirt on its own because of its size (sorry for the picture quality)! I took lots of pictures of this necklace to show how well it works with a variety of items because I think it is a piece that can seem daunting until you know how it can be worn. Verdict: KEPT!
Overall, I was very happy with this Fix! Sara nailed it by sending some high quality denim. Part of the reason I took a break from Stitch Fix jeans was that I discovered Genetic denim (which also has Tencel®) and I did not want to give up on their fit and comfort. I’m so happy to know that Stitch Fix also has denim of a similar quality because I now know what to request in future fixes. I’m also crazy for the wood statement necklace, which is surprising even to me! I cannot wait to see what Sara chooses for my next box!
