What is Stitch Fix?
If you are not yet Stitch Fix obsessed like I am and have no clue what I’m talking about, let me fill you in. Stitch Fix is an online personal styling service that ships customers a hand picked selection of clothing and accessories based on their individual style, size, lifestyle and budget. After signing up you can start immediately on your Style Profile and then schedule your fix whenever you want. You’ll be assigned a stylist and they will send you 5 pieces they thought would work for you based on your profile. You can also link to a Pinterest board to help show them pieces you’re interested in. You pay a $20 styling fee with each fix, which is applied as a credit toward anything you keep. Shipping is free both ways and they provide a USPS envelope to return what you don’t want. The best part is if you love it and keep all 5 items they give you a 25% discount on your whole order. It’s super easy and I love it. I had a lot of fun filling out my style profile and even more fun obsessively searching for reviews from other bloggers.
My Second Fix
This time I made a few specific requests. I asked them to focus on tops because I wear jeans every day and recently found inexpensive skinnies that fit me well. Also, every review I have seen that includes pants always includes a high price tag. I did, however, mention that I’m in search of a pair of bootcut/flare leg jeans in a dark wash and if they happen to have them in petite, please send them my way. I requested a cobalt colored top, the Moni Stud Detailed 3/4 Sleeve Blouse in a fun color and a long cardigan in a neutral color. I also asked for that Kristen Blouse from last month in a larger size, but it wasn’t available.
Here are my style cards and price sheet along with a nice note from my stylist, Nicole.
Item 1: Enrique French Terry Fit & Flare Dress by Renee C, $38
At first, I was a little hesitant when seeing they were sending a dress since I specifically asked for all tops. But, I kept an open mind since the price was great. It was the first thing I pulled out of the box and I thought it was really cute. Sadly, it was too tight in the chest and arms. I emailed asking if they had a larger size, but it wasn’t available.
Verdict: Sent Back
Item 2: Ruben Tab-Sleeve Open Cardigan by Splendid, $78
This was nice enough. The fabric was soft and the color was neutral, like I wanted. But, I was looking for a thicker boyfriend cardigan. This was t-shirt thin and $78. I have a very similar cardigan in black from Kohls and I paid no more than $20 for it. Verdict: Sent Back
Item 3: Aleah Heathered V-Neck Dolman Top by 41Hawthorn, $48
A friend of mine got this in another color in her fix last month and it was her favorite piece. But, she is tall and thin and I am very much the opposite. I like the color and the fabric is amazing, it’s soft and cozy and it feels well made. It’s a little big in the shoulders and when not bunched at my waist, it would reach my knees. I asked for a smaller size, but again, it wasn’t available. I said last month that one thing I loved about Stitch Fix is that they send things that you’d never choose for yourself. This is definitely a style I have avoided. I’m still not sure that it is flattering on me, but my friends who saw the photo said it was a keeper. I sure hope they are right. With the styling fee credit and some credit I had from a friend who joined, this ended up being FREE. Therefore… Verdict: Kept
Item 4: Moni Stud Detailed 3/4 Sleeve Blouse by 41Hawthorn, $58
If you remember, I requested this shirt. I’ve been seeing it all over Pinterest and other Fix reviews. It’s made by Stitch Fix’s own label, 41Hawthorn. I love the style and this red color is fantastic. Sadly, it was too tight around the mid-section and hips. I may request it again in a future fix once I have lost some weight. Verdict: Sent back 🙁
Item 5: Natasha Front Pocket Sleeveless Blouse by 41Hawthorn, $54
This color is still my favorite and I’ve been told it looks nice on me. So, I was excited to see it again. But, this top was huge on me. Had I not been wearing a tank top underneath, you’d be in for a show. The arm holes were huge and it hung strangely in the front. Not a fan. I’ve seen this in other reviews and haven’t seen anyone keep it yet. But, I really did hate to give up that color again. Verdict: Sent back
So, what do you think of my second Stitch Fix?
I’m not going to lie. This fix was a disappointment. I had changed my sizing in my style profile because some of the tops I got last month were too tight. But, it didn’t necessarily help. With my second fix, some things were too small and some things were too large. I guess I don’t really fit into one size across the board. But, I’m still enjoying this process and it’s really fun receiving clothes someone else picked for me. So, I will give it another shot. My next fix is scheduled for April 3.
