APRIL - Stitch Fix Review
It's time for another Stitch Fix Review!
If you haven't jumped on the Stitch Fix train, I highly recommend that you do!
But, first.... let's get the information out of the way:
HERE'S HOW STITCH FIX WORKS:
Simply click on this link which will take you directly to the Stitch Fix website. Next, create an account and complete your FREE style profile. This style profile lets you tell your stylist about your EXACT tastes. One thing I like is that you can let her know just how much money you'd like to spend. The average fix is about $50 per piece. The more information you can give and the more specific you are with your preferences and likes/dislikes; the more successful your fix will be! I recommend creating a Pinterest Style Board to get even more specific about your style preferences!
Once you've completed your style profile, Stitch Fix will pair you with your own personal stylist that will select five items that will suit your individual needs! JUST FOR YOU! Then, the clothes selected will arrive at your door and you can try the items on in the comfort of your own home with the clothing and accessories that you already own.
It's really simple. Keep the items you want. Ship back anything you don’t like in the PRE-PAID shipping envelope. There is a small $20 styling fee that you don't get back if you don't keep anything that you were shipped. BUT, shipping and returns are FREE, and the $20 styling fee is deducted from the price of anything you decide to keep. Do you LOVE everything in your fix? If you do, you automatically save 25% on your entire order.
In my opinion, the $20 styling fee is worth it! No trips to the mall to search in countless stores for a put-together outfit. I'm hooked and can't WAIT for my next fix to ship! YIPPEE!!
WHAT WAS IN MY FIX??
I was very excited to get this fix. Of course, once my box shipped I cheated and looked at the clothes my stylist picked for me! I had the same stylist as I did for my last fix, and I was very happy because I think Anna did a great job last time.
For this box, I asked for fun and flirty spring and clothes for my upcoming Colorado trip in May. I told her that I had a blue jean jacket already and that I love flats. She scored big with my skinny jeans in the last fix and I was excited to see what she picked out!
Unfortunately, and with a big tear, I kept nothing from this fix. NOT because I didn't like the clothing that was sent, actually quite the contrary. I just felt like the clothes were just too expensive at this point in time.
These were the first two items I tried on. The shirt was adorable! I mean, very very cute. Had it NOT been for the fit I would have kept this. As you can see in this picture I was holding the fabric in on the side. The size was great - the cut, not-so-much. It appeared very boxy and square when I had it on. I was not in love, so sadly I returned this. STATUS: RETURNED
Q & A Tarria Pleating Detail Blouse - $54
Lila Ryan Dorianna Skinny Jean in Lavender - $98
Say what?? $98 colored jeans? These were absolutely fantastic on my body. I loved them from the moment they were out of the box. They fit like a glove. I could dress them up or down. I liked it best when I paired it with my black lace top and black wedge sandals. I also paired it with a previous fix top that I received in January (shown below.) Both worked well.
I just couldn't get over the price tag - SO pricey and being that they were so "seasonal," I knew that I wouldn't get the wear that I wanted out of them. Regrettably, my fiscally sensible head - and my practical husband talked me out of these. They are in my heart always. Lol STATUS: RETURNED
Loveappella Caroleena Front Pocket Knit Top - $48
This shirt was incredibly comfortable. Soft as can be, but the fit was just not right. I didn't love it and it was a bit big, even in a size small. It just couldn't be kept. STATUS: RETURNED
Nine West Marie Doted Laser Cut Ballet Flat - $78
I personally loved these shoes. I felt like they would be versatile with many clothing items. I asked for flats in this fix and Anna delivered. They were a very "on-trend" blush color and quite comfortable. My husband hated them from the get-go and because of that, and the price, I just couldn't keep them. The only shoes I spend THAT kind of money on are my running shoes! Runners can you relate??
Verse, Navy Flo Knit Dress - $48
This dress was sleeveless and a great material, but I wasn't in love. Maybe it was the pattern? I'm not sure. It was much cuter with the jacket than without, and I don't have any accessories on with this, but I just was kinda "it's okay" on this one.
The price on this dress was just right. I think in a different pattern it may have been a love for me. Also, because the fabric was so light and thin, I felt like I would need to suck in my belly. STATUS: RETURNED.
This fix didn't go as planned, but I'm okay with that. Last fix I kept everything!! I have already ordered another box, specifically asking for less expensive items. We shall see! I'm excited for it to arrive.
If you are dying to give this a try. Here's my referral link! I think you'll love it!
What do you think? Did I make the right choice?
