It’s time for another Stitch Fix review, this time with Fall clothes! I was pretty picky over what I kept this time, making sure it went with the Dressing Your Truth colors that work for me. I’m not passionate about making every single item in my wardrobe match my color code, but when the items are good quality and cost more, I want them to be something I adore!
If you would love to get started with Stitch Fix, they offer gift certificates, which is how I got started! Last Christmas Sean gave me a gift certificate, and I was so shocked! He totally knew I had been wanting to try this service out, but I never dreamed he would get me a gift card! It’s a nice way for a husband to buy his wife some clothes, without doing the actual shopping. 🙂
If you are not familiar with Stitch Fix, here is how it works!
First thing you do is fill out your style profile. This gives your stylist ideas on how tight or loose you want your clothes, want pricing, sizing, and color preference you have. This is also the place you link to your fashion board on Pinterest, so your stylist gets an idea of what you like! I have a board just devoted to pinning Stitch Fix items.
Now you just order your fix! You have to pay a $20 styling fee, but that fee is refunded if you end up keeping any item in your box. I always keep at least one thing, so I don’t blow through $20. Every box comes with 5 items. Stitch Fix offers clothes, shoes, accessories, jewelry, but you can specify what you want. I don’t have anything checked on my profile beside clothing, but I might try the shoes and jewelry section next time.
The box will show up in a few weeks (you can schedule when you want it to arrive, but it normally takes around 2-3 weeks for the stylist to put together you box, and it to arrive). You have 3 days to try everything on, and decide what you want to keep. A postage paid envelope is included, so it’s super easy to send back! If you keep all 5 items, you get 25% off your order!
Let’s start with what I did love first!
Blue Sweater – Somehow I lost the sheet that showed the names of everything I received. So you get the basic names. 😉 This sweater is super soft and comfortable. I just couldn’t get over how soft it was, and I love the color!
It’s so wonderful to wear something that feels like pajamas. 🙂 I saved this, and already wore it to an orchestra concert that my children played in.
Martina Cardigan – This burgundy cardigan was something I really debated about keeping. It was incredibly comfortable. I ended up sending it back because I didn’t think I had enough in my closet that it would go with. I’m kind of regretting it though. I need to find some more cardigans this year!
You can always request certain items if you see something you like that Stitch Fix sells. I know they have this cardigan in different colors, so I thought about requesting it in a different color.
Shiela A-Line skirt – Ok this is a totally new look for me! I liked how the outfit all pulled together, but the skirt is not long enough for me to wear in everyday life. If I stand perfectly still or pose for a picture, I might be able to pull this length off, but even then…nope. LOL I want skirts to cover my knees. 🙂 The whole outfit is darker in colors than I prefer now. Back it went!
Tulen Pleated Top – When I pulled this top out of the box I was in love with the color. My love for it ended there. You have to wear a cami under this top because you can see through it. It’s baggy, long, and barely tucked into this skirt for a picture. I adore this color, but it definitely went back!
I wish this shirt would have worked because the color is just what I’ve been looking for!
Overall I wasn’t out of this world excited about this box, but I’m glad I found the sweater. I wrote some honest feedback when I checked out, and Stitch Fix has waived my next $20 styling fee for me to try again. I always appreciate how often Stitch Fix will do this (definitely don’t abuse this, you want to give honest feedback each time so Stitch Fix knows what type of clothes to send!).
I’m going to schedule a box for December, and I’m really hoping to find 2 things in the box I want to keep, instead of just 1. 🙂 I added some more items to my Stitch Fix Pinterest board to give my stylist some ideas.
What would you love to receive from Stitch Fix?
