This may be the first Stitch Fix to appear on this blog, but I have been a long time lover of Stitch Fix. Somewhere during my first mid-life crisis of my twenties, I no longer enjoyed going clothing shopping. The spark of digging through hundreds of clothing racks was no longer appealing to me. Circa 2014, I think?, I discovered Stitch Fix and have been addicted ever since.
In case you don’t know, here is how Stitch Fix works:
- You start by filling out your style profile – you will complete all sorts of questions on sizing, fit/cut, pricing (I choose the cheapest category), style preferences – colors, prints, fabrics, etc. You can also write notes about likes/dislikes. *** Important Note: Make sure to link your fashion board on Pinterest so your stylist can see what you like!*** (This has been truly beneficial for me because my stylist ALWAYS tries to find similar items that I have pinned to my Pinterest board).
- Order your first fix! Your card will be charged a $20 styling fee however, if you keep at least one item you will be credited back the $20. Because of this, I always recommend keeping at least one item or you are essentially giving away $20 for nothing in return. You will receive 5 items (made up of clothing, jewelry, handbags, and shoes). I personally only want clothing in my fix so I chose to not receive any accessory items and marked that in my style profile.
- You have 3 business days to decide what you want to keep and what you want to send back (don’t worry, Stitch Fix also provides a pre-paid postage envelope so you don’t have to worry about paying for shipping to send any items back). During this time, try on the items, mix and match them with pieces already in your wardrobe and don’t be afraid to try something on even if you initially don’t like it when you first pull it out of the box. You may be surprised on what items you love after you try something on! *If you keep all 5 items you will receive 25% off your entire fix.
- When you check out – Leave feedback!!!! This step is super important so your stylists knows your likes and dislikes!
***Just to note: I chose to receive monthly boxes; however, this is in no way a subscription service. You choose how often you want to receive a fix. This can be every 2-3 weeks, monthly, every other month, every 3 months, etc.
Remember – If you see anything that you like below, feel free to pin away and/or ask your stylist in the notes section of your next fix for the item or something similar!
Loveappella – Atherton Lace Sleeve Knit Top
I love this top. I love the lace, cap-sleeve detail and the fabric is so soft! It is definitely one of those items that you can dress up or down. A great staple item for any wardrobe.
Kut From The Kloth – Elyse Slim Straight Leg Pant
I think these pants may be the softest, most comfortable pants I have ever tried on. I wanted to keep them so badly; however, I had just found out I was pregnant when this fix arrived. I didn’t think it was the wisest decision to keep any pants. Because I have to be real with you as well as myself…when I was pregnant with my daughter, I had gained 60 lbs. I went from a size 6 (pre-pregnancy) to a size 14 (post-pregnancy) and it literally took me 5 years to get back to my pregnancy weight/size.
Leo & Nicole – Lamarra Multi-Ribbed Sleeveless Cardigan
Let’s talk about this item for a minute. This is one of those items, I sent back and regrettably wished I would have kept! I don’t know if it was the 90 degree weather fogging up my brain or the fact I literally found out I was pregnant the day my fix arrived, but sadly, this item is no longer available. *insert tears*
Market & Spruce – Careen V-Neck Dolman Knit Top
I own quite a few Market & Spruce Dolmans. They are so soft and comfortable and this one is no exception. Plus it has stripes and I am a huge fan of stripes….Literally half my closet is full of stripes.
ModRef – Agnes Knit Top
This top is cute, but I feel like it just didn’t fit me right. It’s a great piece that you could totally dress up or down. Throw it on with some jeans and sandals for a cute, casual look. Or you could pair it with a skirt and heels to dress it up.
What piece(s) of clothing would you have kept? And if you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments below as well!
