Stitch Fix #1 | My Review

IMG_7854

Have you been hearing the rave reviews about this styling service called Stitchfix? I’ve been noticing their ads popping up everywhere, and a few were from trusted sources. So since I really don’t enjoy shopping very much at all, unless it’s online, I decided to give it a try! (Visit their website to learn more about how it works.)

My first “Fix” arrived this week, and today I’m going to host a little Show & Tell. Maybe this will help you decide whether or not you want to try it yourself!

If you’ve been paying attention to my capsule wardrobe posts, you probably have somewhat of a feel for my style, so you could probably look at the style profile form and make pretty educated guesses on what I told my stylist.

Here’s what she sent me:

IMG_7865
Urban Expressions Avery Zipper Detail Hobo Bag, $68
IMG_7867
Tea N Rose Westbury Crochet Detail Hoodie, $54 (back side pictured)
IMG_7868
Henry & Belle Abana Ankle Length Skinny Jean, $148
IMG_7866
Market & Spruce Chaplin Hooded Anorak Cargo Jacket, $88
IMG_7869
Loveappella Saxby Scoop Neck Top, $54

Here’s my opinion of her choices for me:

  • The bag is super cool, but I’m not a huge bag person to begin with, and that much of a color (it’s more purple than what’s shown) is juuuuust too much of a stretch for me. I’m afraid I wouldn’t use it often enough to justify paying the price.
  • I like the hoodie. The crochet detail on the back (it’s the back side that’s pictured; the front is just plain) initially seemed a little too girly for me, but I think it’s growing on me. I might keep it.
  • I already own a great pair of black skinny jeans, so although these did fit me really well, I don’t really have a need or use for them.
  • The jacket is okay, but very similar to one I already own, that I bought at GAP last year (and I like mine better).
  • I can’t decide how I feel about the striped top. I like how it fits — fitted at the top, loose towards the middle/bottom — but I’m not sure if I’m feeling the stripes. What do you think? The fabric is super thin as well, not so cozy for fall…

I need to “check out” online by Sunday, and right now I’m leaning towards probably keeping the hoodie and maaaaaaybe the top. If you have any opinions, do tell. I could definitely use some help deciding!

If I decide to send everything back, I’ll have to pay $20 for the styling fee. If I purchase at least one piece, the $20 will go towards whatever I buy. If I was keeping everything, I’d get a 25% discount on it all!

Every Fix comes with handy little “wear it this way!” cards.

I love how easy the process is and how much fun it is to get a box full of surprises in the mail. I’m excited to give it another try, maybe closer to October when I’ll actually be starting my fall wardrobe. They say the Fixes get better and better as your stylist gets to know you!

  1. That crochet top! ♡♡
    And the stripey one would go so well in so many outfits; I vote yes. Stripes are a super fun way to add interest without color.
    I reeeeeally wanna try Stitch Fix someday and am hoping it will come as a gift someday 😉

  2. Super cute!! I vote yes on the top too. It seems so versatile. Love the hoodie for sure. And I think she did pretty good on your style considering you already have some of the pieces!!! 🙂 fun idea!

  3. I’m addicted to stripes so naturally my opinion on that piece is KEEP IT. 🙂 It looks like a flattering, comfortable top! Stitch Fix sounds so fun, but I also enjoy shopping on my own a little too much to pay someone else to do it for me. Now if I could work FOR Stitch Fix… 😉

    • I really appreciate your input. Thanks! I’m definitely highly considering both at this point.

      I should clarify maybe, if not for you then for others, that as long as you decide to keep at least one of the pieces, the styling fee is completely free! 🙂

  4. I wouldn’t keep anything you are not 100% about. I would skip the stipe top, but that hoodie is pretty sweet! Thanks for the review! I was looking into doing Stitch Fix when I learned they also style maternity and I was getting pretty fed up with trying to find some pieces in my style. I opted out because I read reviews that everything was pricey. But it doesn’t look like they are as bad as people made it out to be! I might have to try it for spring!

    • Right?! Now you’re the one keeping ME in check as far as loving the things in my closet. 😉

      I can’t wait to try them for maternity.

      You choose your own price range from several different options on your “Style Profile”…I selected the $50-$100 range. The pieces I got this time are definitely well-made and high quality.
