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 6th Fix (June 2014)
Here’s a sneak peek of my Fix, along with my style cards, price sheet and a nice note from Jenni.
Item 1: LeSample Kahlo Embroidered Racerback Tank, $48
I’ve seen this top a lot in various SF reviews. I always wanted it but was afraid how the bottom would look on me. It comes in a few different colors and this green/pink combo was by far my favorite. Jenni sent me an XL and it was just way too big. I was pretty bummed. But, I decided to email and in the subject line I wrote “Attn: Jenni B.” and asked if she had it in a L. She wrote back within 24 hours and said she was able to find it and would send it to me as an exchange. So, during checkout I proceeded as if I was keeping the original top, but sent the XL back to them. A few days later I received the L in the mail. It worked out well. I’ll have to update with a side by side comparison photo of the two different sizes. Verdict: Kept
Item 2: 41Hawthorn Alessandra Striped & Colorblocked Blouse, $54
Again, I requested this shirt and have seen it in a few different awesome bright colors. Love the yellow. But, it’s times like this where I question if the stylists really know the clothes. I would never expect an XL in this top to fit someone who is 5′ tall. I’m not even sure a L would fit me. It looks more like a boxy dress than a shirt. Oh Well, I’m sure there are some skinny tall girls out there rocking this top right now. Verdict: Sent back
Item 3: Ezra Mimi Wavy Chevron Print 3/4 Sleeve Blouse, $48
I saw this top in someone’s Stitch Fix review and I immediately pinned it. It’s gorgeous – I love the color and the pattern and it was the perfect length for me. It fit slighting snug on the bust, but nothing I couldn’t live with. But, the sleeve cuffs were so tight that I couldn’t push them up passed where they are in the photo. 15 minutes after I took it off, it still felt like I had tight elastics on my wrists. Ouch! What a bummer, I really loved this top! Verdict: Sent back
Item 4: Mystree Samberg Smock Detailed Knit Shirt, $48
The color on this was nice, I don’t have anything this color. I liked the detail on the top part too. But, the mid section reminded me too much of a maternity shirt and was not at all flattering from the sides. I also had to wear a tank under it in order to hide my boobs, but I tend to wear undershirts anyway so this didn’t bother me so much. I know it would bother a few friends of mine. Verdict: Sent back
Item 5: Papermoon Fletcher Lace Trim Blouse, $48
The cutout detail on the bottom of this top is so unique, I love it. I just wish it was a fun color since I already have a cute black top from Stitch Fix. The length was great and the overall fit was fantastic, although slightly snug on the boobs (story of my life). Verdict: Kept
So, what do you think of my 6th Stitch Fix?
Overall, I liked this fix a lot. The colors were great and the majority of the pieces weren’t ridiculously long. I’m still having some fit issues, but I’m still loving the process. I’m going to do at least one more and decide if I want to continue from there.
