This month I decided to finally try Stitch Fix. I know, I know…I’m totally behind the times on this. But I just enjoy styling my outfits and shopping for new clothes way too much to let someone do it for me so I didn’t think I needed Stitch Fix. However, in my household (just like in most households), fall is such a busy time that I am always looking for ways to simplify. While I love shopping, I decided I could save time by having chic, fashionable clothing handpicked by a stylist shipped right to my doorstep. Being a style blogger, it doesn’t really make sense for me to have regularly delivered Stitch Fixes (shopping and putting outfits together is kind of what I do), but it is definitely something I will use every once in a while when I am extra busy and want to quickly elevate my wardrobe. But for you other ladies out there, who are super busy being a mom or working long hours or both, Stitch Fix would be a fantastic option for you.
What is Stitch Fix?
For those of you that aren’t too familiar with Stitch Fix, here is a brief overview. They are a team of personal stylists that will handpick clothes for you and ship them directly to your door. When you sign up, they’ll ask you to fill out a style profile where you are able to list your sizes, price range, styles you like, etc. Next, you choose the date you want your “fix” shipped and they send you a box of 5 items, a mix of clothing and accessories. You can choose to manually select one time deliveries or sign up for monthly deliveries that will be sent automatically at the same time each month. After trying on your items, you decide what you want to keep and what you want to send back. For more information, visit the Stitch Fix website.
So, here is a review of the 5 items I received in my first Stitch Fix box:
Papermoon Lace Detail Blouse/ Just Black Skinny Jeans/ Diba Studded D’Orsay Flats
1. Papermoon Lace Detail Blouse – $48:
Blouses are something that I have been in need of lately so I was very excited when this one was in the box. I love the color as well as the lace and tab-sleeve details of this one so I decided to keep it. I have already worn it twice…once with denim and once with a pencil skirt!
2. Just Black Skinny Jeans – $88 and 3. Diba Studded D’Orsay Flats – $45
I loved these jeans. They fit well, I loved the wash, and they were extremely comfortable. However, despite the great price point, I just couldn’t rationalize buying a new pair of skinny jeans at the moment. I have too many as it is! I also fell in love with these shoes when I took them out of the box, but unfortunately I had to send these back also, because they were too big. They were the correct size, but ran a bit larger than was comfortable for me.
O+O Striped Sweater/ Just Black Skinny Jeans/ Nautica sneakers
4. O+O Striped Sweater – $58
This sweater was okay. It was very soft and comfortable and came in my favorite pattern, stripes, but I just didn’t love it so I decided to send this back also.
Crescent Textured Knit Dress/ old heels
5. Crescent Textured Knit Dress – $68
When I pulled this dress out of the box I liked it, but when I put it on, I loved it. It fits well and I am a sucker for cut out back details. It is still warm enough that I can wear this dress with some fun heels or flats, but when it gets a little colder, I can wear it with a slouchy cardigan or fitted jacket and some tall boots. I chose to keep this one!
My Overall Experience:
Although I chose to only keep two items from this box (#1 and #5) I was happy with my overall experience. My stylist was pretty on point in nailing my style. I also thought it was a great mix of pieces. And although not every piece worked for me right at this moment, they were all still comfortable and high quality items. I will definitely use this service again!
