Briefly, when you sign up for Stitch Fix, you first complete a style profile, where you can specify your personal style and taste, clothing item preferences, accessories wanted, sizing, and budget. Then, you get a personal stylist who will curate a box (or “fix”) with 5 clothing and accessory items selected just for you, based on your personal style profile! You can get a fix as often you’d like.
Each fix costs a $20 styling fee, but if you keep anything from the box, you get to apply the $20 to the cost of the item(s) you keep. Send back and don’t pay for any items you don’t want. Shipping is free both ways. If you decide to keep all 5 items, you receive a 25% discount on the entire fix!
Stitch Fix is such a fun way to shop in the comfort of your own home, with no risk. Perfect for those who don’t like shopping in the store or online, or who don’t have the time, or who just enjoy getting a pretty box in the mail with fun clothing and accessories. (I am the latter).
I have used Stitch Fix on and off for years now. They have expanded and improved so much since I started. They carry women’s, men’s, and kid’s clothing, jewelry, shoes, and handbags. They also carry well-known brand names like Kate Spade and NorthFace.
I recently ordered a fix in January 2019. Below I provide a review of my fix to share with you all. Let me know what you think!
These are the 5 items that were included in my fix. They definitely gave me a mix of simple and classic with items that pushed me a bit outside my comfort zone.
Item #1: French Grey Norine Knit 2fer Maxi Dress
This first item is exactly why I love Stitch Fix. I never would have looked twice at this dress if I were shopping for myself. The most important rule of Stitch Fix (that I have self-imposed) is to try everything on. Even if you think you will hate it…try it on! You will be surprised. This is what happened with this dress. I put in on, it fit like a glove, it was unlike anything else in my closet, and I had to have it.
Items #2 and #3: Fun2Fun Mackenzie Split Neck Henley Top and Judy Blue Adelene Girlfriend Jean
These next two items also carried a surprise. I own way too many pairs of jeans, and barely ever wear them. I mean, since leggings have taken over the world and introduced my bottom half to some next level comfort, I can barely force myself to wear real pants anymore. But, Stitch Fix did it again. These jeans are stretchy, so they are comfortable, and they fit me really well (which is tough for me and my big ol’ booty to find). So, another keeper.
The top is very much my style. Plaid is huge this season and I am here for it. The shirt was just the right fit, not too tight and not too loose. Another keeper.
Items #4: Pink Clover Bay Cross Front Detail Pullover
I was not crazy about this sweater. I didn’t hate it, but the color was really ugly. They describe it as olive, but its more of a muddy brown…not really my style…I typically love pattern and color! It was also a little baggy for my taste. Well, Stitch Fix, you can’t win them all.
I followed my own styling advice that I outline for you when you Join the 5 Day New Wardrobe Challenge!I paired this sweater with a new midi skirt that I am obsessed with and my favorite pashmina scarf to create an outfit that I really love.
Item #5: Staccato Scandya Plaid Cardigan
Finally, this cardigan. Another plaid in gray, which is my very favorite neutral. I instantly thought of several clothing items already hanging in my closet that would look great paired with this cardigan…and a girl can never have too many cardigans, amiright!? Keeper.
I kept the entire fix! I loved 4 out of the 5 items. The only item I was not in love with was the “olive” sweater. However, since I love bold pattern and color so much, I often find I am lacking more basic and neutral items in my wardrobe. For me, neutral basics are necessary, but just not fun to buy. I can definitely pair the sweater with brighter colored items I already own (like the skirt above). And, it was actually cheaper for me to keep all 5 items and get the 25% discount! In total, I paid $165 for all 5 items.
