Stitch Fix #2 Review

I was planning on holding off on getting my second Stitch Fix until this month, but since I loved my first one so much (read my review here), I was very anxious to get another! Since it was Christmastime (at least that’s what I keep telling myself), I decided to have my box come a little earlier as a Merry Christmas to me thing.

Stitch Fix is a clothing styling subscription for women, that can be sent up to once a month. You schedule each “Fix” on your own schedule. Each box sent contains 5 clothing items/accessories based on your style profile (filled out when first signing up), and specified Pinterest board (here’s mine). You’ll always be charged a $20 styling fee, but if you decide to keep anything you receive, that money goes toward the item(s).

One of my favorite parts about Stitch Fix, is the personalized note that comes with it directly from the stylist who pulled the pieces together. I’m assuming it’s the same person from month-to-month, since I had Emily last month (she killed it!) and again this month. I really love the personal touch!

At first glance, there were a lot of darker colors. But it is winter (despite the mostly warm weather we’ve had here in Florida), so it makes sense.

Benzer Mixed Material Sweater ($78)
I had seen this sweater in another color when perusing people’s Stitch Fix reviews and thought it looked awesome on those who documented it. However, when I tried it on, it just wasn’t for me. It was baggier than expected (I could’ve sized down) and I wasn’t a fan of the orange popping out of the bottom of the shirt. It’s just not one of my colors. Verdict: Returned

Rylin Pintuck Detailed Cap-Sleeve Blouse ($68)
At first I wasn’t into this shirt at all. It’s very loose fitting and flowy. And while I’m no fan of super tight clothing either, I wasn’t sure if this one was for me. So I sat on the decision for a few days and decided to keep it! I prefer to wear it with a cardigan (or other jacket), but after trying it on with a few different pairs of pants, it’s definitely one I can make work. Verdict: Kept

Tiennent Faux Leather Detail Pencil Skirt ($78)
Pencil skirts and I just don’t mesh. Never have probably never will. I just feel awkward in them, and don’t find them too flattering for my body type. I felt like this was a pretty big miss from my stylist, compared to everything else she’s chosen for me so far. No worries though, it saved me from dropping an additional $78! Verdict: Returned

Ginsberg Metal Bib Striped Tank ($68)
When I first saw that this tank was coming (I peeked in advance online to see what I was getting), I wasn’t very excited. It reminded me of Cleopatra. Nothing against her, it’s just not me. I tried it on anyway, and actually ended up really liking it! It’s different from everything else hanging in my closet and is one that can be used for a night out or on vacation. Two types of pieces I’m always looking for! Verdict: Kept

Byers Houndstooth Open Draped Cardigan ($64)
I’m a sucker for cardigans. There wasn’t anything too special about this one – in fact, it’s a bit dull. But after walking around in my apartment with it for awhile, I decided I really liked it. Fashion challenge accepted. A pop of color is definitely needed, but that’s easily done with a shirt underneath and/or shoes. Plus, it’s SUPER comfortable. Verdict: Kept

My second “Fix” wasn’t as good as the first one, but for someone I’ve never met to style me based on a Pinterest board and style quiz I took, it’s not bad at all! My next “Fix” is scheduled to arrive in a couple weeks and this time I requested a couple specific items. Fingers crossed I’ll get them!

Do you receive Stitch Fix? What do you think of the service?

    That cardigan looks SO comfy!! The tank looks like it would be flattering on with the way it falls. It sounds like you should have returned the Rylin Blouse though, you sound like you don't really like it. I hope you like your next one better!
