April 2014 Stitch Fix Review # 1

Have you heard of Stitch Fix?! I found out about it via a friend and just loved the idea: You pay a $20 styling fee to get a "fix" and five clothing/accessory items are sent to your home. You get to try them on, in the convenience of your home, and you can keep all five (and receive 25% off your purchase), or you can keep whatever you want! If you do decide to keep anything, your $20 styling fee goes towards your purchase. Brilliant! Before you schedule a fix, you get to fill out a style profile and let your stylist know exactly what you like and what you don't like. You can even specify what type of items you do or do not want sent to you. Oh and the best part for a mom like myself on a budget, you can pick price ranges for each type of clothing item. So if you request clothing items around $50 a piece, you won't get sent a $200 dress. Okay, enough talking -  we want to see pictures!


Now for the fun part.... Here are my five items I was sent. Please ignore the toys and any clutter in my pictures. I promise my next fix pictures will be in a perfectly picked up 3-year old's room! haha

[one] Mia Melon - Paloma Striped Short Sleeve Cut-Out Top. This top had a really fun back which is why I included a back view. There were buttons going up and down the backside & it sort of gathers at the bottom which makes for a very flattering fit. ;) The shirt is actually patterned which you can't really see in the pictures. It does lay really nicely and would be a great everyday shirt. You can never go wrong with black too! I'm torn between keeping this and returning it. What do you think I should do? Verdict: Unsure


[two] Pomelo - Corinna Striped Dolman Top. I'm a little biased with this shirt because believe it or not, my friend Lauren who introduced me to Stitch Fix was sent this exact shirt but in gray instead of pink! She raves about it and I've seen her in it - it's too die for cute! This was a no brainer. It's unique, cozy, striped (I love stripes) and a great fit! Verdict: Keep

[three] Kensie Jeans - Sophia Ankle Length Skinny Jean. It's hard to compare these jeans to my other skinny's I already have because I love my AG & J Brands SOOOO much! These Kensie jeans were too big anyways, so it made my decision easy. Verdict: Return

[four] Collective Concepts - Esten Button-Up Sleeveless Blouse. I'm not too hot on the shirt color, it's a little bright for my liking. Also, I thought this was more of a going out top, and for that reason, I think it's a little boring for me. I'm not much of a necklace wearer, so there wasn't enough going on in this shirt for me to like it enough. I did like the material and lay of the shirt though! Verdict: Return

[five] 41 Hawthorn - Florence Colorblocked Dress. From the picture I saw prior to trying it on, I thought I might actually like it! However, it was too big. =( Sad day because I could really use a cute dress. Verdict: Return

Conclusion: Some of the items are slightly move expensive than I normally spend for clothes. I wouldn't want to fill my whole closet with Stitch Fix items, but it's worth it to me to have a few pieces that are nice and that I can pair with less expensive items. All in all, I love the concept and would totally do another fix! For future fixes, I am going to tell my stylist no more denim jeans, more fun patterned tops, and to remember that I am only 5'2" so to please send me smaller & shorter dresses!

Now are you just itching to try it out? Go head over to their website and fill out your style profile! Then you can decide to order a "fix" whenever you want! It's so much fun =)

BTW - which items would you have kept/returned? Would love to hear anyone else's opinions.

  1. Cute idea. Btw that blue going put shirt would be awesome if paired with a red, gold or yellow skinny belt around your waist. You can also throw a fun scarf over it with a leather jacket. Love your black flats with the gold embelishment. Those are a staple item for sure :)

    1. Oh and I say return on the black top. While cute you can find those anywhere for any price point.

    2. Thanks for the advice Kirstie!!! I think I agree with you on the black shirt and not sure if I can pull off your suggestion with the blue one, haha! I do have a leather jacket I could try the look out with =)

  2. Such a fun idea!! I am fairly tall so I always have a hard time finding things that are long enough - this would probably be pretty tough for me!

    1. no - it would be perfect Lisa! You tell them all your measurements and everything so they will know how tall you are.... then they should pick out stuff that would look good and fit you!!! =) wish I was "fairly tall".... I'm fairly short, like 5'2" haha
