I’ve been hearing a lot about Stitch Fix for several months now and finally decided to bite the bullet and give it a try this month. What is Stitch Fix? A personal styling service that sends you 5 clothing items/accessories based on your personalized style profile, which you fill out at sign up. Your stylist takes your profile preferences and Pinterest board (if you provide one – which you definitely should) to select your items, so the chances that you’ll like/love the items sent is pretty high! The upfront cost/styling fee is $20, which goes toward the purchase of any item(s) you decide to keep in your “Fix,” and if you decide to keep all 5 items, you receive a 25% discount on your purchase. And what you don’t like, you send back (pre-paid shipping + envelope included in your box).
Your stylist also includes a little note to you, which makes it feel like true personal service! I’m sometimes unsure how to pair items, so I appreciated my stylist’s note on how to wear some of the pieces she included (e.g. dressing up or down), and also a paper with some complete looks for reference. Very helpful! And now that you have an overview of the service, I’ll get right to it!
Kut From The Kloth Paige Skinny Jean ($78)
Skinny jeans are especially great for this time of year when the weather’s cooler (well, sometimes here in Florida) so you can rock some boots. These are jeans that can also be dressed up or down, which is great! Not to mention they’re comfortable, which is key for pants. Verdict: Keep
Skies Are Blue Terese Quilted Faux Leather Jacket ($88)
Leather jackets – real or faux are the last thing I thought I’d want to add to my wardrobe. I always pass them in stores and they’ve just never really been my thing. So when I found one in my box, my first thought was ehh, I won’t keep it but I’ll try it on just for kicks. Well, jokes on me. I LOVED it! Verdict: Keep
Mystree Abigail Colorblock Lace Trim Top ($58)
Tops for work and also for nights out are always on my radar. This top works for both occasions. I was most iffy about this out of all of the items I tried on. I definitely prefer a jacket with it but I’ll wear it! Verdict: Keep
Moon Alexander Graphic Knit Drape Front Cardigan ($68)
I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this cardigan. It’s the most comfortable/cozy piece of clothing I’ve ever owned and feels like I’m snuggled up in a blanket. It’s a little heavy which is great for the cold days, but basically, I plan to live in this piece! Verdict: Keep
Loveappella Canon Button Detail Striped Knit Top ($48)
I normally try to stay away from horizontal striped shirts. They’re just not always that flattering. But this one is SO comfortable and I love it! It’s also fitted in a loose way – if that makes sense? Not skin tight or too flowy. Verdict: Keep
I know it’s hard to get a true feel for what the clothes are like just seeing them on a hanger so here’s my selfie (apologies for the terrible lighting) with two complete looks using all of the items I received. I love that I was able to make complete outfits with my Fix and not just a few random pieces here and there.
So there’s my very first Stitch Fix LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. It was a huge splurge for me since I ended up keeping everything (even with the 25% discount), but I’ll definitely get good use out of every piece I received and the items seem to be very high quality. I never would’ve found the items I received in my own shopping, or if I did, might not have thought to try them on. So needless to say, I’m extremely happy with my fab stylist Emily and her picks for me!
Stitch Fix isn’t necessarily a monthly subscription. You schedule “fixes” on your own schedule. Keep in mind they are typically booked almost a month in advance! I’m not sure when my next one will be (likely after the holidays), but I’m already looking forward to Fix #2!
