My Latest "Fix"

Have y'all heard about Stitch Fix?  Or have you tried it already?  Well, I found out about it several months ago, and was intrigued.  After reading some great feedback and wonderful reviews, I thought I would give it a shot, and see what all the buzz was about. 

If you don't know, Stitch Fix is basically a service that sends a box full of clothing and accessories that are handpicked by a personal stylist for you.  The stylist analyzes data from questions and information that you answer and give online (that part is actually really fun!)  You get to pick whatever date you want your box shipped out to you.  It comes with 5 items - those items can be selected entirely by your stylist, or you can help choose the type of items you are looking for (i,e. "dress for date night", "distressed skinny jeans").  You can be as specific or non-specific as you want, it's up to you.  

After the box comes, you go through your goodies!  Try them on, see if you like them and how they fit, and then decide what's worth keeping, or sending back.  You get a 25% off discount if you keep ALL 5 items.  If you want to send items back, they include a prepaid bag with label to drop off at any USPS mailbox.  Easy Peasy!  

For what you decide to keep, you pay for!  You do pay an upfront styling fee of $20, but that amount will go towards any item that you keep from your box. All this without all the hassle of driving to the mall, parking, finding a store, digging through racks, finding (or not finding) your size, trying on in the cramped dressing rooms, waiting in line to check out..etc etc.  Its just a few clicks of a button :-) It's really a fabulous idea.  

So on to my very first Stitch Fix Box! I had several requests to share my goodies - so here they are!  
Excuse my awful modeling poses ;)  

1. Floral Infinity Scarf  -$24
Lightweight, linen, gorgeous colors.  I have something similar or else I would have kept it.
Verdict: liked, but sent back.

2. Navy Dress - $78
Flowy, lined, and cinched at the waist. The material of the lining clung to me though.
Verdict:  liked, but sent back.

3. Distressed Skinny Jeans- $120
Dark denim skinny jeans with the perfect amount of distressing.  I specifically asked for something like these, and LOVED them, but they were just a little too big/baggy.  
Verdict: loved, but sadly sent back. 

4. Lace Detail Black Blouse- $34
Really pretty flowy blouse with lace cut out detail.
Verdict: loved, but sent back only because I have something similar.

5. Lace and Crochet Knit Blouse - $64
Reminded me a lot of an Anthropologie blouse.  Well-made, very comfortable, and cute on.
Verdict: loved, and kept! (with my styling fee and a credit on my account I paid $19 for it!)

Overall, I was very impressed with Stitch Fix!  The quality, material, fit, and style was very true to my taste and budget.  It was such a fun and exciting way to shop!   Not to mention, easy!  Especially when I'm used to shopping with a 1-year old!  ;)

Love you're review I've been thinking if trying this! Can you send everything back if it doesn't work? Can you give them a budget?

You got some great things! I always wondered the type of clothes Stitch Fix sent to customers. Not bad prices either!

Love Stitch Fix. I have tried them three times and the best fix I got was the second one. It's easy, and yet stylish. Love what you kept.
