Yes it’s been a few months since I’ve written a Stitch Fix review and yes, I’m still receiving my monthly fixes. (I wish I knew how to quit you.) In fact I still really love it. And because I’ve taken the last couple weeks of summer off to spend with the kids before they head back to school, I’m thinking I’ll have the time to complete some reviews for you (but don’t hold me to that promise).
If you aren’t familiar, Stitch Fix it’s a personal styling service for us ladies. When you sign up, you can personalize your fixes to your style, size, clothing budget, and lifestyle (Do you work in an office? Do you work with baby spit all over you?) Then you’ll receive a package of 5 awesome pieces to try on at home (i.e. no awkward fitting room lighting). What will this pieces consist of? Well, that’s up to you (and a real-live stylist). Let’s say you’re in desperate need of some fall dresses – just go to your profile and send a request for dresses that month. Or let’s say your ears are feeling naked, just ask for some jewelry to go along with those dresses.
Each box comes with a style card that gives you tips on how each item can be worn. This is really helpful to me because sometimes I just stare at clothes not knowing what to wear them with (true story). Don’t like some of the items you got? Just keep what you want and send back the ones you don’t in the included prepaid postage bag.
There is a $20 styling fee that is applied to your order if you decide to keep any of the pieces. If you don’t keep anything, you don’t receive a refund of the fee. And if you keep all of the pieces, you get a 25% discount on everything!
Wondering what I received in my May box? You know you are…
Aiden Embroidered Hem Woven Top | $38
It’s hard to see in this photo (they send you a card on how to style each item) but this shirt had some great detail. It’s the perfect work shirt for me so I put it in the keeper pile.
Emily Lightweight Chevron Infinity Scarf | $38
I’ve been wanting a new scarf but I’m pretty over chevron so unfortunately I sent this one back. Boo hoo.
Siena Colored Cropped Capri Pant | $58
Again, I wanted to love these pants but the fit was off (or I ate wayyyy too much in May) so these went back.
Azza Abstract Chevron Print Hi-Lo Tank | $54
I loved this shirt and wanted to keep it, but I have a few similar tops and at $54 I just couldn’t justify it.
Clemency Abstract Print Tab-Sleeve Tunic | $68
I honestly can’t remember why I didn’t keep this shirt, and now that I’m looking back I sort of want it. Oh well.
If I had kept everything in my box, it would have cost me $250 – 25% = $187 which is actually quite reasonable for three cute tops, a pair of pants and a scarf. But this was one of those off months for me where things didn’t fit quite right, etc. so I only kept the Aiden Embroidered Hem Woven Top for $38. I have a two more months to catch everyone up on so stay tuned because I love me some Stitch Fix!
