Review: Stitch Fix

DSC03597-001

In an effort to not only have this blog filled with Target stuff (even though I love it and you love it too), I wanted to branch out and try some other stuff out to fill my growing and expanding closet. Enter Stitch Fix (ps., this is not a sponsored post, just some honest feedback that is all my own)!

How it works:

  1. You fill out a short survey online that helps to figure out your “style” and some items that you may be interest in your Stitch Fix stylist picking out for you.
  2. You pick a shipment date, pay $20 for a styling fee (that can go towards purchasing items in your Stitch Fix box if you like them), and they send you a box of goodies the week of that date!
  3. You open the box, read your nice note from your stylist (mine visited the blog to find out my style!), try on the goods (mine was four articles of clothing and one accessory), make outfits with the goods based on the style cards that are included, and see what you want to keep versus what you want to send back.

These are the items that I received in my first Stitch Fix box: one striped tee, one heart high-low tank, one sailboat dress, one mint necklace, and one pair of mint skinny jeans. All of these sounded right up my alley (cute graphic prints, mint items – I’ve been wanting one of those, and stripes), but nothing ended up wowing me (especially for the prices of each item)…insert sad face.

Here’s the dainty little necklace. I’m not much of a dainty long necklace wearer, so PASS.

This dress was so cute, and it came with an adjustable side waist. The stylist notes suggested pairing it with my red heels that she had seen on the blog, so I did!

Everything’s better with a blazer (similar). ;)

The two shirt were massively oversized (and I tend to be a high-low shirt hater, which is what the heart tank was), so those two were a PASS as well. They were so average that they didn’t even get photographed. And the mint jeans that I had a lot of hope for, since they were definitely long enough for my giraffe legs? They were skin tight and super thin, so they showed every single inch of my leg…which the internet is not ready for…so no photos of that either.

All and all, it was a fun experience. It’s always fun to get packages in the mail. It was cool to have someone look at your style and try to jazz it up a bit with some fun, new pieces. If the dress had been cheaper (and I didn’t already own a sailboat dress), I probably would have purchased it. I’m definitely willing to give Stitch Fix another try down the line and would recommend it to anyone who wants to try something new. If you’re interested in trying, here’s my referral link. Let me know if you have any questions, and I’ll try my best to answer!

I think I’m going to see about trying Le Tote next. Has anyone tried Stitch Fix, Le Tote, or anything else they care to share?! Let me know!
