Well, the time has come for a review of my most recent Stitch Fix box.
If you’re not familiar with Stitch Fix, I’ll give you a short run down:
This company is a personal styling service that sends you five pieces of clothing/accessories according to your “style profile,” which is formed by a survey that you fill out before ordering your fix. Your profile gives the stylists an idea of what types of styles you like or don’t like, what size clothes you wear, your price range, and if you want to see anything specific in your fix. You can also link to your own clothing/accessories Pinterest board (if you have one).
Once you fill out your profile, you pay a $20 styling fee that goes toward any pieces you decide to keep. You can keep everything in your box (resulting in a 25% total discount), or just a few pieces, or nothing at all (but you still pay the $20 styling fee). Whatever you decide, you can send anything back in a pre-paid envelope. It’s super easy.
This is actually my third fix. I wish I had done reviews of my first two because they were awesome, but alas, the past is the past. I kept one item from my first fix – a lovely grey maxi skirt – and I kept everything from my second. Needless to say, I was very excited for #3.
The package arrived in the mail on Saturday, and I opened it hastily to see the five pieces my stylist chose for me. I convinced my husband to be my official photog (cue this video) and strutted down our tiny little hallway to show off each piece.
Just Black Adorra Skinny Jean
As soon as I pulled these jeans out of the box, I knew I was going to love them. They were soft and stretchy, and I loved the wash. Good pants aren’t always easy to find, but these felt like the real deal. In fact, I wore them to try on each of the following pieces and they worked well with everything! Decision: Keep!
Le Lis Trentadue Lace Sleeve Knit Top
My first reaction to this piece was, “This is… interesting.” I’m not opposed to black or lace, but I wasn’t convinced I liked how this particular combination looked on me. Maybe it could work on someone else. Decision? Send back.
Daniel Rainn Bass Velvet Blouse
I’m 99% sure I own nothing velvet. BUT I loved this blouse. The shape/look is very me, and it could definitely be dressed up or down. Decision? Keep!
Market & Spruce Gillia Lace Detail Knit Top
How cute is this shirt?! This is the kind of lace detail that works for me. I love the v-neck and that it flows asymmetrically. And a little added bonus – the sleeves turn into 3/4 sleeves when you unbutton them. Yay! Decision? Keep!
Pixley Analisse Anorak Jacket
Can you tell how excited I was about this little number? I love a good jacket, and this one hit the jackpot. It’s SO cute and I can wear it so many different ways. There are drawstrings in the middle and at the bottom, plus a zipper, snap buttons, buttons to roll up the sleeves, and a removable hood. Talk about versatile! Decision? Keep!
Overall, I am so happy with this fix. It looks like I will actually be keeping the whole box since it just makes more economical sense with the 25% discount. We’ll see what happens to that black lace top (Christmas is this Friday…).
Another reason I’m a huge fan of this company is that they really do pay attention to your preferences. For me, each fix has been better than the one before it. Once you try on everything in your box and decide what to keep/send back, there’s an opportunity to rate each piece and tell your stylist exactly why you did or didn’t like it. I make sure to do that each time because I can see how it influences my next fix. My stylists have even made references to my feedback and to my Pinterest board!
When you sign up for Stitch Fix, you’ll get a referral link, and whenever a friend uses your link, you get credit toward your next fix! I had credit that I received when a friend used my referral link, which is super helpful when my box is full of great pieces. ;)
So there you have it! I hope that if you’ve never tried Stitch Fix, you’ll fill out your own style profile and order your first fix in the New Year.
