I think it’s safe to say I have a new addiction…Stitch Fix! I’m on Fix #4 in four months. I’ve kept just one piece from each Fix so far so thankfully, it’s worked out to get it each month. Not sure what Stitch Fix is? It’s like having a personal shopper for clothes! This is perfect for me since I rarely find the time to actually go to the store and shop for myself. Plus, I love that I have been sent (and purchased) items that I wouldn’t normally pick up for myself.
Once you create your account, you will complete your Style Profile. This tells your stylist what types of clothes you like and don’t like. Once your profile is complete, you can schedule your fix! There is a $20 fee for Stitch Fix to send your fix. This can be usedtowards anything you decide to purchase. You will receive 5 items – clothes, jewelry, scarves and/or shoes. And, if you decide to keep all 5 items, you will save 25% on your purchase. Once you receive your Fix, try it all on within 3 days and send back anything you don’t want. It’s that simple.
Now, I am normally a clearance rack shopper so I will tell you that Stitch Fix prices are higher than I would normally pay. Here’s the great thing, once you sign up, you can get referrals and that means shopping credit! I am not being paid for this post so if you are interested in Stitch Fix and want to sign up, I would love for you to use my referral link and then share your link with your friends.
The other reason I like Stitch Fix is the excitement of seeing that little box on your porch each month (or however often you decide to get a fix). This is my monthly splurge, and it keeps my closet up to date.
Once you receive your email that your Fix has shipped, you can see what they are going to send you – either on a computer or through the app on Apple products. For this fix, I specifically asked for a pair of Mavi jeans, a denim jacket and also referenced four casual knit shirts in hopes to get one. When I peeked, not gonna lie, I wasn’t excited….except for the jeans, but let’s see what I thought once it all arrived.
First up is the Laila Jayde Bowie Solid Dolman Sleeve Top. I LOVE the color on this top, but I haven’t had much success with dolman tops and actually asked to not receive them. This one on the other hand, fit perfect! It’s lightweight which means it’s great for the ever changing Illinois weather right now. The 3/4 length sleeves were nice and it fit nicely around my hips. I just wish it weren’t $58.
I also got the 41Hawthorn Litton Split Neck Blouse. This is a lightweight top that would be perfect if I worked in an office. But, I stay home with two boys and don’t see myself wearing this very often. The “v” was a little low cut for me, and I wasn’t sure about the length of the sleeves on this one.
And, it looked nice under the Liverpool Kolten Denim Jacket in Black. I got this same jacket in my first fix, but in a unique denim blue color. Once again, it fits great – stretchy and soft, but it’s $98 and I just can’t see paying that for a denim jacket.
The next item I got was the RD Style Braddon Airy Knit V-Neck Sweater. I loved the fit of this sweater – the length was perfect and it fit nice over my waist/hips, but I just don’t see me wearing it much. I have two boys and would be worried about it snagging. I’m also a typically cold person so to have a sweater with holes in the arms, just didn’t seem appealing to me. The holes in the front didn’t bother me much since you need to wear a tank top or cami under this one any way.
I saved the best for last! The Mavi Freida Skinny Jean in Navy. These were recommended to me by another Stitch Fix user. I have a fairly small waist, but thicker bottom/hips/thighs with shorter legs. These jeans were SO comfy and they fit perfect! There was no gap in the back and they have a 30″ inseam which hit me write at the top of my foot. These were a definite keep for me, and I already wore them out!
What do you think? What should I keep? Send back?
