I haven't received a Stitch Fix in well over a year. There's no reason really as to why, other than we've just been so incredibly busy. However, I have really missed it! So, I decided to schedule a fix!
So, before I go on and tell you what was in my box, let me explain Stitch Fix to those who may not be familiar with it.
- First you sign up for your first fix.
- Then you fill out your style profile. This helps the stylists select clothing that they think will suit you. Don't rush through this process! Take your time so your stylist can really get to know your style!
- Your stylist then chooses 5 items based on your profile.
- You choose your price range.
- The items are sent to your home (no shipping fees), and you then try them on. Keep what you like, send back (in the included pre-paid postage envelope) what you don't want.
- There is a $20 styling fee, however this can be used to purchase any of the items you are sent!
- If you decide to keep all 5 items, you receive a 25% discount.
- You then give feedback on your fix. It's extremely important to be very detailed for your futures fixes!
I've always wanted a personal stylist, haven't you?! That's exactly what Stitch Fix is!
Item #1 41Hawthorn Lizzy Colorblock Striped SweaterMy Style Board on Pinterest, and noticed I had this pinned in a different colorway. She immediately thought this was a great fit! While I did love the sweater, it was a little too baggy on me (sad face). This one is going back.
Item #2 Market & Spruce Marielle Knit Top
Item #3 Renee C Cora Printed Maxi Skirtmy first fixes included a maxi, that I happily added to my closet. However, this one unfortunately didn't do it for me. I really didn't care for the pattern. Back it goes.
Item #4 Le Lis Ginny Lace Detail TankPinterest board. I cannot tell you how appreciative I am that my stylist really took the time to get to know my style! Anyways. I was a bit disappointed because it was sadly too big. I REALLY tried to make it work, but it just didn't. Boo.
Item #5 Market & Spruce Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Tee
Honestly. I love everything about this tee. The color (yay for gray!!), the fit (perfect
!), the material (soooo soft you guys). That being said, I couldn't justify the $44 price tag. I just couldn't spend almost $50 for a tee shirt. Couldn't do it. Nope. So as much as I did like this top, I had to send it back.
Overall, I kept one item. I consider a Fix successful if you find at least one item you love -- primarily because your $20 styling fee goes towards the price. You're almost silly to not keep one item!
