I got my first StitchFix in October and was impressed with the service. I wanted to sign up for another fix immediately, but I held off for a while. I’m glad I waited a little while, that gave me more time to reflect on my first go-round.
For those new to the show or are unaware, here’s how StitchFix works: You fill out a survey about your body type, lifestyle, likes/dislikes, etc. Then you pay $20 as a styling fee. You receive a box in the mail with 5 items hand-picked for you by a stylist. They’ve taken into consideration everything you provided in your survey. You try everything on, return the things you don’t want (in the enclosed prepaid envelope) and the $20 styling fee is applied toward anything you purchase. If you buy everything in the box you get a 25% discount.
My latest fix just arrived yesterday, here are the goods and decisions. (PS – If you weigh in TODAY, as in Friday January 17… you may be able to influence my decisions!)
Tart Yusuf Embellished Shoulder striped top
I like the striped top, I wasn’t sure about the sparkly, bedazzled embellishments on the shoulders. But I don’t mind them when on. But I don’t like the shoulder pads in the shirt… weird! Plus, the shirt is dry-clean only and with the embellishments on the shoulders, I’m 99% sure that at some point my toddler would find a way to smash some kind of food in there.
Verdict: On the Fence
41 Hawthorn Ivy Tulip Print tab sleeve blouse
I like this shirt, but it feels very similar to one that I got in my first fix. And while I wear that shirt a lot, I think I should branch out more.
Tart Hemmingway tab-sleeve knit shirt
This is probably my favorite item in the box. It’s comfy, feels like I’m being totally casual yet looks more pulled together than an old race t-shirt.
Just Black Adora skinny jean
I was sooooooo excited to get green jeans in my fix. GREEN JEANS! I don’t know why I want green pants so much, but I do! And well, these pants are a lot tighter than I’m use to/comfortable with. It’s not like they’re too tight to even zip up and they don’t give me a muffin top, they stretch and move well; but still… not comfortable to me. They’re also soooooo long.
Verdict: Return [sad face]
Moon Collection Alexander Aztec Knit Drape Front Cardigan
I feel like I’m drowning in this. And I really am not a fan of any kind of southwestern-ish prints. This is just not right for me.
So this box wasn’t as much of a winner, but I think it is helpful to me in nailing down things I like/dislike. I’m going to schedule another fix soon too!
