My February Stitch Fix Review

My February Stitch Fix Review

I was so excited when my second Stitch Fix arrived.    For those of you who have never heard of Stitch Fix, it’s a personal styling company.  They send you 5 items based on your style and requests.  You pick out the items that you want to keep.  If you want to send any items back, it’s easy.  Just use the prepaid envelope and send them back.  I did Stitch Fix last month and kept all 5 items, which gave me an additional 25% off.  Two of my friends did it too and they kept all of their items too.  This month I wasn’t so lucky, but it was still fun and I would do it again. Here what was in my box.

RD Style Rhonda Knit Black Faux Leather Jacket

Loved the fit and price of this jacket.  Verdict: Kept

Skies are Blue Bruno Split Neck Blouse

I asked for a light colored top, but this was a little blah and shapeless.  Verdict: Returned

41Hawthorn Filbert 3/4 Sleeve Popover Blouse & Dante Cut Out Metal Oval Layered Necklace

I liked this blouse, but couldn’t justify the cost for something so basic.  Verdict: Returned

The necklace was okay, but I wasn’t crazy about the separation between the layers. Verdict: Returned

Mystree Lorri Skirt

I know that 2014 was the year of the butt, but seriously, who would send this fitted skirt to a pear shaped woman?  Kim Kardashian?

I only kept one item from my box this month.  Hopefully, my next box will be filled with exciting new styles for spring.  If you want to try Stitch Fix, please click on my referral link.

 

 

 

 

My First Stitch Fix Review

Standard

I’ve been stuck in a style rut, but luckily one of my coworkers turned me on to Stitch Fix.  For those of you who don’t know, Stitch Fix is a fun online company that assigns you a personal stylist who chooses fashionable items that suit your needs.  On the website you provide your stylist with your sizes and complete a simple style questionnaire. You have the option of writing her a note including your requests, and you can even provide her with the link to your online media like your Pinterest page. There is a 20 dollar style fee, but if you choose to buy any of the items, the fee goes towards your purchase.  You have 3 days to decide which days items you want to keep and which items that you want to return in a prepaid envelope. It’s really easy and the anticipation of the unknown makes it so much fun.

My first box just arrived from Stitch Fix and I couldn’t be happier.  It came with a style guide to help to help me mix and match the pieces.

1.  Kathy Striped Fit & Flare Dress

This is such a cute dress and I think it is very flattering.  I can dress it up or down and wear it season to season.

Verdict: KEEP

2.  Octavia Tina Checkered Infinity Scarf

I would have not have picked this out, but I really like it.  It’s so soft and unlike anything that I have.  (Please excuse my pasty legs.)

Verdict: KEEP

3.  41 Hawthorn Colorblock Lizzy Striped Sweater

This sweater reminded me of other shirts and sweaters that I own, but once I had it on I knew I had to keep it.  It’s soft and comfortable.  I like that the stripes on the body are different from the stripes on the arms.  It’s a nice detail.

Verdict: KEEP

4. Market and Spruce Clove Twist Back Cardigan

Photo on 1-3-15 at 1.27 PM Photo on 1-3-15 at 1.05 PM #2

I was not crazy about this cardigan when I opened the box.  It was expensive for something that’s not very flattering and aside from the color, a bit boring. One plus is that it doesn’t attract dog hair.

Verdict: KEEP (Only because if you keep all 5 items, you get 25% off.)

5. Pixley Sofia Hammered Square Collar Necklace

I liked this necklace so much that I wore it right after I opened the box.  It can dress up any outfit.

(Sorry for the bathroom photo.  It’s my only room that has good light at night.)

Verdict: KEEP

 Final Thoughts

I really enjoyed doing Stitch Fix.  It was fun to start thinking about my style and it got me moving in a better direction.  The anticipation of getting my box in the mail was almost as fun as opening the box and playing dress up.  My stylist, Monica, really got me.  I would definitely do it again.  I wish they’d offer a teacher discount.
