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 Fifth Fix (May 2014)
Here’s a sneak peek of my Fix, along with my style cards, price sheet and a nice note from Jenni.
Item 1: Papermoon Lupita Colorblocked Cross-Back Tank, $48
I am a big fan of bright colors and colorblocking so I was very excited when I pulled this out of the box. The back has a fun cris-cross detail and it came with a comfy white cami. Unfortunately, it’s a high-low top. Apparently high-low tops are on trend right now as I’m seeing them a lot. I get it, who doesn’t want to cover their bum? But, for those of us that are vertically challenged, it’d be nice if there wasn’t an extreme difference in length between the front and back. I’ll have to take more photos that include the back later so you can see for yourself. But, even though it’s pretty long in the back, I love it from the front and in the end I could not bare to part with the great back detail and amazing colors. Verdict: Kept
Item 2: Papermoon Wynn Mixed Dot Print Front Pocket Blouse, $48
I was pretty annoyed when I saw this listed on my sheet. I got a Papermoon Wynn top in my last fix and it didn’t fit. Guess what? Neither did this one. Although the arms weren’t as tight as last time, it was still very long on me and not very flattering. Generally, I enjoy crazy prints but I think they have to be symmetrical. I really didn’t like the dots in varying sizes, but the color was nice. Verdict: Sent back
Item 3: 41Hawthorn Lori Lace Fit & Flare Dress, $88
Jenni mentioned taking a chance on this one so that I’d have a nice date night dress. Bless her heart for thinking we actually go on dates. Well, we do occasionally, but nowhere fancy enough to wear this dress. A friend suggested wearing it to a wedding, but I don’t even know anyone who is engaged! It’s really too bad because I love the color and the lace and the fit was pretty good too. It does make me look a bit top heavy though, a v-neck would have been more flattering. For the price, I couldn’t justify it sitting in my closet waiting for an occasion to pop up. Verdict: Sent back
Item 4: Collective Concepts Lydia Floral Print Key-Hole Blouse, $68
There is that blue color again. My goodness, I love that color. I really like the style of this shirt and the colors are obviously gorgeous and the length is perfect. I wasn’t crazy about the flower pattern, but I totally would have kept it if the fit wasn’t so boxy. Verdict: Sent back
Item 5: Pomelo Brook Dot Print Tie-Waist Top, $54
Brenda Walsh called, she wants her tie-front shirt back. I often shake my head when strange things come back into style. I certainly was not ready to bring this one back. Although, kudos to Jenni for sending me something with polka dots, which I love. This was a bit long on me and, therefore, the tie hit in a weird spot, making the shirt bunch at the bottom in a place I do not need extra padding. Verdict: Sent back
So, what do you think of my fifth Stitch Fix?
Overall, I’m not very impressed with this fix. It started on the wrong foot when it came late, which was a first. Jenni does a great job of sending things that I will like in theory, but we’re still having major fit issues. I have another fix coming up and it may be my last for a while if the fit doesn’t get any better. Maybe I need to just wait until they come up with petite sizes.
