Stitch Fix #2 Review – April 2015
It’s heeeeeeeeeeeere! Amen! Alleluia! God Bless America! It’s been
an agonizing 4 weeks since my very first Stitch Fix. When my Stitch Fix box is shipped, I track it daily. Ok, I track it hourly to see if it will get here faster. Something happened at the apartment office where my package wasn’t delivered due to “the business was closed” or some nonsense and I had to wait a whole extra day! Stitch Fix-ers know that is torture! And I’m only on my second box and feeling this way. I’m just waiting until a box makes me cry.

What is Stitch Fix? It’s pretty simple. Stitch Fix is a monthly subscription styling service. It costs $20 per box, which covers the styling fee. You try on the clothes, keep the ones you like, return the ones you don’t. Pay for the items you keep and the $20 styling fee gets applied to that cost. Easy, right?! You can sign up here.
My favorite new sweater came from my first Stitch Fix, which you can see here.
Woo patterns and colors! I usually squeal at this moment.
Your Stitch Fix stylist includes a styling card to show how you can wear each item, and a personalized note just for you.
Just Black Jimmy Ankle Length Skinny Jean – $88 [Return]
While I loved how dark these jeans were, they didn’t fit. They were in waist size and not US size. I’ve never fit into a pair of jeans that went by waist size. I wiggled and wiggled, but to no avail. Back they go to Stitch Fix land, which in my head is similar to Candy Land, but full of clothes.
[Tip: If you like this look but can’t afford the price tag, try similar styles on Amazon.]
Loveappella Evie Draw String Funnel Neck Sweatshirt – $64 [Keep]
Your stylists really do pay attention to your Pinterest boards, because I pinned this sweatshirt in a different color from Living in Yellow. And now it’s in my closet…almost. When I held up the sweatshirt, I noticed two ripped seams. While repairable, if I’m paying for a new item, I want a new item that isn’t damaged. Customer service is AMAZING and got back to me on a Saturday! They said that there was one available for exchange. So I paid for this, but am sending it back for an exchange.
Tulle Melinda Textured Dress – $48 [Return]
NO. I like the general style of dress, but the color and pattern are less desirable.
Kensie Rebekah Contrast Detail Blazer – $88 [Return]
I already regret returning this. I agonized over this one all the way to the post office. I did ask for a blazer in my notes to my stylist and they did an amazing job answering my request. Yes, I love this blazer. It is dark navy and not exactly full length sleeves. They can be rolled up and the polka dot detail is so cute. But if I’m going to spend $88 on a blazer, it is going to be on a full length sleeve, black blazer. If I had the budget, I’d buy this in a heartbeat. Maybe I will ask for it specifically again when I make some extra cash.
Sweet Rain Shina Button-Down Blouse – $38 [Keep]
This is my favorite piece in the whole box. I was surprised it was tight in the bust area and nervous that I would not be able to exchange it. I think I got lucky that they had it in a larger size and I will be exchanging this as well. I can’t wait to wear this to work! The price is on point too. The color was different than what I was expecting when I read the styling card. It looks red on the card, but it’s actually pink, which makes me so happy!
*Update – it has been brought to my attention that this shirt was available on Modcloth under a different name for $29.99. It looks like it is sold out now.
I am really happy with the items I decided to keep (exchange). By the way, if you purchase every item in your box, you get 25% off the entire purchase! Visit Stich Fix for more information.
