Stitch Fix #2

Stitch Fix is a clothing subscription box that can come as often or as far apart as you want. You complete a survey about your style and what you’re looking for, then they charge a $20 styling fee and 5 items show up on your front door! You can link your Pinterest page so your stylist gets a better idea of what your style is like. There is also a place to leave notes if you are wanting something specific. This time I left specific notes and they really paid attention to them. Once you decide what to keep, your styling fee is subtracted from the total. If you keep all items you also get a 25% discount!

This is the page with all the pricing information and discount total.

They always include a styling page with a note from your stylist and pictures of how to wear your items. On the left is a casual look, and on the right a more dressy one. This can be good if you’re kind of new at fashion or are trying a new style.

Skies are Blue Yancy Plaid Top $58 – I had listed that I was open to petite sizing and I think that worked against me with this top. The bottom is a little shorter than I’m used to. I had requested a plaid top just to throw on with jeans, but this one has a half placket which I don’t like. It made it had to get on and off. It wasn’t a great fit and sort of pricey so I didn’t keep it.

MTLA Brett Textured French Terry Lined Legging $38 – I’m not sure why but I wanted to be a leggings person, which I’m just not. These have a fleece lining and you can’t tell from this picture but a kind of sweater pattern on it too. I tried them on and they seemed a little thin and they just weren’t my thing.

Brixton Ivy Lawley Β Cable Knit Open Cardigan $68 – I had requested a cream sweater and almost kept this one! It is a nice heavy weight, and has a really cool pattern on it. The price point is high so I didn’t. A few weeks later I saw a customer in Anthropologie wearing it and struck up a conversation with her!

Octavia Alpine Β Plaid Wrap Scarf $44 – The blanket scarf has been a big trend and I didn’t have one yet. I don’t know what I was expecting but this was way too big and overwhelming and it just wasn’t cold enough this winter to wear it!

41Hawthorn Benson 3/4 Ruched Sleeve Blazer $78 – I had seen this on their Instagram page and had been wanting a navy blazer for a while! This is a stretchy knit fabric so it is more casual. I usually get a small but I’m really glad my stylist sized up on this one. I like the fun striped lining! I kept it and have already worn it several times with jeans and over a dress. I used some credit I had from referrals to get the price down.

Stitch Fix is a great option if you are too busy to shop or just feel like having a stylist! I like it because they do the searching for me and I get to see things I wouldn’t in the stores I normally look at. They recently added shoes and also have jewelry and accessories like purses. This was obviously a winter heavy box, but I hope to get a spring one soon with maybe some dresses! If you’re thinking about trying it out use my referral link please! As always, thanks for reading!

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!
