Ok. I’m freaking out. For two reasons. I got my first Stitch Fix in the mail last week and I love it. Second, I’m showing my mug on here for the first time ever. I don’t know why that is so freaky to me, but it is. Here goes.
So, what is Stitch Fix? Stitch Fix is the Fairy Godmother to your Cinderella. Except you don’t get a ball gown, you get five adorable fashion pieces (tops, pants, accessories, dresses, skirts) that are chosen just for you based on a pretty in depth style and size profile that you complete. Your Stitch Fix stylist will even look at outfits you’ve pinned or posted to other social media to get a solid idea of what you like.
So, Hi! That’s me. Nice to finally meet you. The navy blue shirt is the first piece from my Stitch Fix box. I love it because it is a classic with a little bit of an edge. The mesh v neck and sleeves are interesting and a little sassy while still being work appropriate. I should note that on the part of the style profile that asked about what body parts you like to show off, I listed none. So my fix should be pretty conservative. Yours doesn’t have to be!
These black pants might not look like much in this picture. I mean, who needs a stylist to pick out black pants for them? I do, apparently. And you might too. I would not in one million years have ever picked these out. Out of the box, they look slim fitting and they are slim fitting and that is not a silhouette this curvy girl would go for. Ever. But these pants are magic. They are slimming and comfortable. I got lots of compliments on them. I would wear them every day if there wasn’t a stigma attached to wearing the same clothes every day in this country. As it is, I wore them Monday and I’m wearing them again on Thursday. If that is wrong, I don’t want to be right.
My favorite piece in the box is this asymmetrical zip sweatshirt/cardigan. I’ve worn this like 5 out of the 7 days I’ve owned it. No lie.
I love it open with the drapey effect.
And I really love it zipped. And the material is the most comfortable thing you’ve ever worn. For real.
When I took this chevron shirt out of the box I was underwhelmed. I didn’t like the colors and it just didn’t wow me. Then I put it on and I realized the colors are great on me AND this magical shirt made my stomach disappear! Holy What? I adore this shirt. Again the material is cozy. It’s flattering, but I feel well covered in it. Like, I’m not worried if I move the wrong my I’m going to reveal some cleavage or tummy, know what I mean??
These earrings were the accessory piece in my fix and I like them. I wouldn’t normally pick them out and I definitely WOULD NOT spend more than maybe $8 on them in a store. They were a lot more expensive than that from Stitch Fix, but I’ll explain why I kept them in the Pros and Cons section to follow. I want to mention first how bizarre it is to see my face that close up. Ask me some day about why my smile is crooked. It’s kind of a good story. Yes, go back and look at all of the pictures again and check out how crooked it is. Weird, right?
So, pros and cons of Stitch Fix:
Love the Clothes
Fit was great on every piece
The quality of the clothes/material seems good.
The stylist really nailed what I would like, even better than I can do!
Access to labels I don’t see very often.
Prepaid postage and packaging for returns
You can earn a $25 credit if you refer a friend and they make a purchase!
The expense. My entire fix ended up at $200. For five pieces, this is way more than I normally spend. There is a $20 style fee that is deducted from your total if you purchase at least one piece and you receive a 25% discount if you buy all five pieces. This is why I kept the earrings. I would have ended paying more if I didn’t keep them. I’m still working out whether or not it’s worth the expense. I think I’ll need to see how the clothes hold up over time (I’m guessing they will hold up well, based on the material). If you want to try a less expensive alternative, try a ThredUp Goody Box!
That’s it. That’s the only con.
