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 October box.
For Fix #2, I had my same stylist, Jenny. She did a great job with my first fix and I was eagerly awaiting my second box. This time, Jenny had access to my Pinterest Board, which was filled with hints of items I loved from other bloggers’ Stitch Fixes. Also, I specifically requested long sleeve tops that I could wear to work.
The first item was the Pomelo Carissa Striped Fit & Flare Dress in Navy ($64)
This dress had a very flattering fit; however, I was really disappointed in this item overall. It was a very thin cotton, more suited for July than October. Also, for the price, the quality was very poor. The fabric would likely shrink and distort after one wash. It was a little too short for work as well.
Items 2 and 3 were the Just Black Adorra Skinny Jean in Navy ($88) and the Collective Concepts Bethanne Abstract Chevron Print Tank ($58)
So, I was really disappointed to get ANOTHER PAIR OF NAVY SKINNY JEANS! (See Stitch Fix #1) It frustrated me that they wasted an item in my box sending another version of something I had just purchased last month. Shame on you, Stitch Fix! In comparison to the last month’s jeans, theses were a little too long, and slightly too tight in the thighs. I could tell that the quality was not the same. The Chevron tank had a cute pattern, but a tent-like fit. Also, the keyhole in the neck gave the perfect view inside of my bra. This whole look was a complete miss!
The fourth item was a 41 Hawthron Benson 3/4 Ruched Sleeve Blazer ($78)
This blazer was super cute and totally my style! The price was also great for such a comfortable and versatile item. Unfortunately, it was a little too snug. I emailed Stitch Fix to try to size up, but this item was not available. Bummer! I learned a valuable lesson from this Fix to include a note to my stylist that I would prefer a size up for outerwear and fitted tops.
The final item was the Skies are Blue Baron Sheer Sleeve V-Neck Blouse ($58)
You needed a front and back view to appreciate this top. At first, I was a little unsure about this item because I already have two long-sleeve burgundy tops in my closet. I loved the sleeves and the material was very soft and comfortable. After a little debating, I decided to this item was a keeper!
Overall, I was disappointed with Fix #2 and I did not hold back when I reviewed the service. I think what really annoyed me was receiving a duplicate jean and a cheap dress more suited for summer than fall. On the bright side, the burgundy top is really stylish! I also learned important lessons on things to communicate to my stylist. Next month, I will specify that I do not want more jeans! Also, I will include alternate sizing for outerwear since this is not an option on the Stitch Fix profile.
My next Fix is coming the beginning of November and I am hopeful that it will include seasonally appropriate Fall work clothes! 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,
