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. 


My little guy had to get in the picture with me! :)  


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?

  1. I would have kept the jeans and the shoes! You would have gotten your money's worth out of both of them. My husband doesn't get a say about my fixes...

    1. I know.... I'm actually sad now. What would I have paid for them? $50. And, another $50 I wouldn't have missed that money in the long run, but the pants. UGH! :(

  4. I think all the outfits with pants were super-cute (it doesn't hurt that you look fit and adorable...you would probably look cute in anything!), but I do think the dress was a little frumpy. I'm such a bargain-hunter too, I think I would be too cheap to keep most of it.

    1. I'd give it another go! Write them an email and tell them the frustration. Maybe they'll send you your styling fee for free?? It's always a shot?

  6. Im supposed to get an order tomorrow! I really hope I get something I like. The prices do seem to be all over the place and I hope I get some that are reasonable. Looks like you got some nice stuff though!

  7. I do love Stitch Fix. I really do. But I buy so many of my clothes at Target and Old Navy that I really struggle with the price tags on things they send. I have asked for the lower end of the $$$ range, but things can still be pricier. I feel like if you can't justify the purchases, you made the right call. I do like the first top, but if you didn't care for the fit, well, then, it's best that it went back.

    1. I agree. And Target has really stepped up their game in the clothing department for sure!

  8. I've never tried Stitch Fix but after seeing everyone's fixes I feel like I need to. I have the worst fashion sense. I can dress someone else but most definitely not myself. Funny since I used to do visual design when I worked retail. :)

    Anyways, that floral top is ADORABLE. I would have kept it and had it altered!

  9. I actually like the jeans, but I have a funky sense of style LOL and wear "spring" colors year-round (imagine those jeans with a black sweater and riding boots, and a chunky b/w patterned scarf) ;-)

  10. I was just talking to a friend how I need to invest in more expensive high quality clothing since I probably would get many years out of it. But I'm a bargain shopper too and don't like to buy anything at full price (only good food is the exception!). I also like to go to the store and pick out my own clothes. Stitch fix does sound like a good option for busy people.

  11. I am obsessed with Stitch Fix right now and adore my stylist. Those lavender skinny jeans are great and that floral top. Definitely good to be frugal though!

  13. I would have splurged on the jeans but only because purple is my favorite color and I have another pair of jeans from that brand and they are my absolute favorite!! You look fabulous in all of it. -Fellow running mom.<----Bookmarking your blog now. :)
