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 Fourth Fix
My last Fix was a huge disappointment. I ended up sending a very lengthy email to Stitch Fix documenting all of the issues I’ve had with them ignoring my feedback, not taking into consideration my height and not looking at my Pinterest board as well as my sizing issues. I explained that I would give them one more chance and thought that our relationship could be improved by them assigning me a specific stylist who would get to know me and stick with me throughout my journey. I also provided them with more info on what I like and don’t like. I got a really nice email back from Jenni B, who had gone through all my feedback and was excited to work with me moving forward. I could just tell she was taking this seriously and wanted to help me achieve a great fix. She had less than a week to pull it off and she did really well. I’m happy to say, this was my best fix yet.
Here’s a sneak peek of my Fix, along with my style cards, price sheet and a nice note from Jenni.
Item 1: 41Hawthorn Cathleen Tulip Print Short Sleeve Blouse, $68
I requested another top with tulips on it, but since it wasn’t available, Jenni sent me this one instead. I’m so glad she did. I love the color and the tulip print. The top is a bit big to be honest, especially in the shoulders. But, I really felt like if I had received this in a smaller size, it would be too tight. My friend Allison also got and kept this top. Hers is more fitted, which definitely looks better. I should mention that I run a Facebook group of about 50 women who participate in Stitch Fix. We always talk about our Fixes, post photos and ask for opinions on what to keep. The reviews were mixed on this top. But, I just couldn’t let this one go. Verdict: Kept
Item 2: Renee C Sylvestre Lace Detailed Short Sleeve Top, $48
My friend Tricia found Katrina Lake’s Polyvore and I spent hours and hours pinning spring and summer tops and dresses that I loved. I learned that I really like lace. Who knew? This top was one of my pins and I was excited to see it. I love the lace detail and the sheer lightweight fabric. It’s delicate, but also feels well-made. I do wish it was white though. But, hey, everyone needs a cute black top in their closet! Pay no attention to the strange placement of my arms in this photo. Verdict: Kept
Item 3: Under Skies Baylee Crochet Detail Tank, $48
First, this teal green color is amazing. One thing I’ve stressed again and again is how much I love bright colors. So, thank you, Jenni! Someone once told me that my skin tone looked great with jewel tones. I believe this color fits into that category. I wasn’t wowed by the style of the shirt, but my friends convinced me that I had to have it. Verdict: Kept
Item 4: 41 Hawthorn Ivy Zig-Zag Print Tab-Sleeve Blouse, $68
I love this shirt. Chevron might be my favorite thing ever and we all know I love cobalt blue. So, I pinned this immediately after seeing it in a Stitch Fix review and was super excited to see it in my Fix. Jenni sent it in an extra large. But, I could barely even get it over my head. The photo shows the point at which I stopped trying for fear of busting the whole thing apart Incredible Hulk style. I know I’m hard to fit sometimes, but this is crazy. I’m seriously wondering if the size on this shirt was mislabeled. I wish I had more time, otherwise I would have had my friend Dale, who is a lot thinner than I am, try it on just to test my theory. Verdict: Sent back 🙁
Item 5: Papermoon Wynn Arrow Print Front Pocket Blouse, $48
Here’s another top that I pinned. It looked gorgeous on the girl in the review. But, I’m assuming she was a few inches taller than me. I love the colors and the arrow print. If it was a little shorter in length and a bit bigger in the arms, I totally would have kept it. Verdict: Sent Back
So, what do you think of my fourth Stitch Fix?
Overall, I’m pretty happy with this Fix. If the last two items actually fit, I would have kept everything! That is a vast improvement from Fixes past. I read somewhere that their goal at Stitch Fix is to have the customer keep 2 items per box. So, I’m ahead of the game then, right? But, in all honesty, I think the goal of the customer would be to keep all 5 items and score that 25% discount. My next fix is scheduled for May 13.
