First Stitch Fix

I had seen reviews for Stitch Fix before and and a few of my friends had gotten one before but I had yet to bite the bullet because I enjoy shopping. But when I saw a coupon code that waived the $20 styling fee I decided to go for it! Stitch Fix is a subscription box that you can sign up to have delivered any time – there’s no set schedule. You pay the $20 styling fee, fill out a detailed style quiz, tell them what you’re looking for and then a box full of five items is on it’s way to you! The code LIMITEDTIME ends today if you want to sign up without the styling fee. I think they did a good job at listening to my requests and the curating can only get better over time!

One thing that’s pretty neat is they include this styling sheet for every item that you receive. It shows a casual and dressy look. There’s also a little note from my stylist about why she picked the items.

Gilli Arisha Striped Dress – $58

I really liked this dress! It is a knit so it is extremely comfortable and it fit well. I like the tulip shape and twist detail on the straps. Another dress I own is almost the same color combo so I decided not to keep it (and it was kind of pricey).

Fun2Fun Binder Tie Neck Top – $48

I said I was looking to try more boho styles (looking for things I can wear to work at Anthropologie) and this fits the ticket. I like the colors and the style, but there were just a few things I didn’t like about this top. It has elastic sleeves and the bottom was a little tight on my hips. It’s getting sent back.

Level 99 Giovanni Straight Leg Jean – $98

It’s funny because we sell this brand at Anthropologie but I have never tried it on before. When I took the quiz there was an option to get petite sizing which I opted into, so these are petite jeans. I requested olive green pants so they did great with that. Unfortunately my normal size did not fit – I would have to size up in this brand. Also I would never pay $98 for jeans. I decided to buy some almost exactly the same from Anthro using my discount instead – a much better deal! One more thing to point out is that on the tag in the jeans it said these were the Lily Skinny Straight style which is not what my sheet says or the extra Stitch Fix tag says. It was just something weird I wanted to point out.

Pixley Elephant Print Blouse – $48

This was very cute and also fit into my boho request. I liked the loose fit and shape and it is a good fall piece. I’m just not sure I was crazy about the elephant print. I decided not to keep it.

Papermoon Rylie Embroidery Detail Tank – $38

Woo hoo we have a winner, and it’s the cheapest thing in the box! I requested something teal for fall and although it says teal on my sheet I consider this turquoise and a very summery shade. That being said I still love it! I don’t have anything like it or much in this color and the embroidery is great! I wore it with white jeans and pink earrings yesterday and it was so cute. The fit was just perfect too.

If I had decided to keep everything they would have taken a 25% discount so my total would have been $197.50. This is also less the $20 styling fee that they take off if you keep anything. I got this box for for free so I was wondering if they would still take off the styling fee, and they did! So I got that tank for $20 with tax! After you decide what to keep you go online and rate everything then send back the leftover items in the prepaid packing slip they included. Next time I will request more dresses and skirts. I was really happy I tried out Stitch Fix and recommend it! I hope you try it out too!
