Stitch Fix: My experience and my 3rd box!

Tuesday, December 10, 2013



This past week I received my third fix! I get so excited to get these, you don't even know. I can't wait to see what's inside. I always want to share immediately but I refrain because it's usually dark and the photos I take won't even do the clothes justice. I have actually only post bits and pieces of what I've gotten on social media this far, so I decided since I had my box over the weekend I'd try to take some photos.

It was a cold, dark and gloomy weekend - so some of things I received were perfect. I have to say though this time I was a little less impressed with my stylist. While she chose great stuff, last time I got a more personal note and seemed like she'd put more thought into it. I straight up asked for winter whites and cozy sweaters and I kind of got that, but it wasn't really what I expected. I also got all items closer to the top of my price range. So, I'm less likely to keep 2-3 pieces.

I'd love to hear what you think...


 This top and bracelet both fit well and I liked them enough, but the top was a little above my price range for something I'm probably going to put a cardigan over and the bracelet was beautiful, but with my recent Noonday show, I felt like my $34 would be spent more wisely on something that was more me. Do you think I am making a mistake in sending these guys back?


 Despite this terrible photo, this shirt is a creamy soft winter white and I really like it, but I'm just not sold. Even though it has a built in under shirt, I'll still have to wear an undershirt under it (under under under). I like the draping. It's very flattering from the front, but hangs a little funny when you look from the side. Here I have it on with tights but I'd most likely wear it with dress pants to work or jeans/cords. A keeper?


THIS SWEATER! It's like the great debate. I love the IDEA of this sweater. I love the feel of this sweater. I'm just not so sure about the look of the sweater on my body. It's really soft and a slight high/low style... but it's not exactly doing me any favors in my worst areas - the middle. I asked on my Facebook page and got mixed responses. It probably be a weekend sweater I'd wear with tights. I could wear it to work, but I'd have to wear it with heels for sure. What do you think I should do?


The FATE Aztec sweater. The one I knew I'd keep all along. I've been wanting a black and white aztec sweater and I'd been wanting stitch fix to send me one - I just didn't know exactly how to verbalize it. I haven't quite figured out the outfit part for places other than home, but I will for this season at least. It's really warm too and it's really cold here this week! So bonus!

For the most part, I love Stitch Fix. The concept is awesome, but it's a lot of items if they are all around $50. I want to do monthly fixes, but I can't spend that much on clothes every month. I am hoping they come up with a bimonthly plan, or a seasonal box with more items would be fun too!

Have you tried Stitch Fix? If so what do you think?


How does Stitch Fix work?

  1. 1. Sign Up and Complete Your Style Profile

    After signing up you can start immediately on your Style Profile. We need to know your size, shape, style, budget, and lifestyle to get your Fix right. The Style Profile will take about 10 minutes to complete.
    1. 2. Schedule a Stitch Fix

      Pick a shipment date, and we’ll send you a box of 5 clothing and accessory items we’ve hand-picked just for you. You can even opt to schedule a monthly delivery if you'd like.
      You pay a $20 styling fee when your stylist selects the items in your Stitch Fix. This $20 fee will be applied as a credit toward anything you keep from your shipment.
      1. 3. Try On All Of Your Items

        Try on everything we send you—you never know what you’ll like until you see it on. Pair each piece with items already in your closet to try different outfit options. Each item includes style cards with ideas and inspiration on how to wear it.
        1. 4. Decide

          Take 3 days to decide what you’ll keep. Return the items you don't want in our pre-paid mailing bag at any USPS mailbox.
          1. 5. Check Out

            Login to your account and pay for those items you kept. If you buy all 5 items you save 25% off the entire shipment price.
            Don't forget to give us feedback on your Stitch Fix shipment—our secret (styling) sauce gets better over time if we know what did and didn’t work for you.

  1. I LOVE that aztec sweater! So I'm glad you kept that one! And I'm on the fence about the other stuff. So I totally feel where you're coming from on those!

  2. I really love the Aztec sweater on you. It's really great. I like the white and blue shirts a lot too, but if they're $50? Pass! I'd return the sweater and the bracelet. My .02 :)

  3. Yeah, the solid sweater is not a keeper

I love the communication and connections one simple comment on a blog can bring. Lifetime friendships are formed, grown, and flourished in this little box. So, basically the pressure is on ;)
