Thought about giving Stitch Fix a try but weren’t sure how it might work out for you? We took the jump and are excited to share our first experience with you!
If you aren’t familiar with Stitch Fix, it is a subscription service that sends you five clothing or accessory items that are chosen to fit your style. You fill out a style profile that includes your exact sizes, styles you like and any specifics you think tell about how you like to dress. You are then matched with a stylist and the stylist begins to work her magic!
For a $20 styling fee, you are sent five items selected just for you. You receive them in the mail and it feels like Christmas morning! You choose which items you love and want to keep and those items you would like to send back. They make it easy to send back – simply put the items you don’t like in the preaddressed envelope and drop it in the mail.
Jill and I think it was a little more fun because we signed up together and made sure to open our boxes together. To make it more of an event, we added wine and some snacks. Imagine how fun it would be to do this with a bigger group of people!?!
Now for the fun part – the clothes we received!
A little about me… I LOVE shopping! This is one reason I’m just now trying out Stitch Fix. I’ve struggled with the thought of giving up getting to go out and shopping. However, after seeing so many friends receive items that have caught my eye, I thought it was time to give it a shot. I am so glad I gave in! Here’s a few pics from our Stitch Fix Try-On Party:
The first item I received was a Skies are Blue brand Ollie Cotton Blend Textured Cardigan. It is a cream and black cardi – I really like the big pockets and how the collar lays. I slipped on a black scoop neck 3/4 length sleeve shirt I had from Gap. I paired this with the Lila Ryan brand Liara Straight Leg Jean I was sent. These jeans were a little more than I normally spend. HOWEVER, they don’t slide down at all – no more pulling and adjusting my jeans all day with these. Definitely worth the higher price in my mind!
My third item was a Skies are Blue brand Muller Ruffle Detail Blouse. This is a fun little lightweight top that can be worn in summer alone or with a cardigan for cooler weather. Take a look at the unique bicycle print! The cardi I received was to go with this shirt but I didn’t like the print on the shirt paired with the black and cream on the cardigan – it was just too busy for me. For an afternoon with my sister yesterday, I put on a pair of Old Navy shorts, Old Navy sandals and a hat from Banana Republic.
My last look was a plaid shirt that I thought would be a miss for me. However, I was pleasantly surprised when the shirt wasn’t flannel but a soft, more fitted material. This shirt screams apple picking! I paired it with my new jeans and the great DV8 Bria Wedge Booties I received. Now I’m a little more excited for the weather to turn cool!
I’m keeping all five items and have already sent in my feedback and requests for my next Fix. I’m afraid I’m addicted!
I’m definitely not as big of a shopper as Cathy. I like to look put together and nice but don’t enjoy shopping because I don’t like how clothes fit me. I’ve been thinking about trying Stitch Fix with the hope that a stylist could find me some pieces I fall in love with. Here’s a few pics from our Stitch Fix Try-On Party:
My first shirt was a win. This Pixley brand Tatie Cold Shoulder Blouse in black was a perfect pick for me. I don’t usually like how shirts fit around my hips. My first thought when I saw this shirt was that it was way too short to fit well. However, the stylist must have paid close attention to my style profile – the slits on the side of the shirt eliminated the problem I usually have. I’ve requested more shirts in a similar fit in future Fixes. I paired my new shirt with the Kut from the Kloth brand Maribel Straight Leg Jean. Like Cathy said above, these were a bit more than I normally spend on jeans. However, I ended up liking how well they fit so they were a keeper.
My next two items were close to my style but not quite right. The cream Skies are Blue brand Clarissa Lace & Crochet Detail Cotton Tank had a little too much detail to be something I would wear. I tried it on with the Le Lis brand Fredrika Pom Trim Kimono. Something about this one was not quite my style. I didn’t love the poms on the bottom and it was just a little too drapey. Both of these will be going back.
My final item was a Market & Spruce brand Canby Faux Suede Elbow Patch Knit Top. This shirt will be a great addition to my casual wardrobe for fall. I can see me pairing this with my new jeans, some boots and a vest for my son’s soccer games.
Overall, I’m keeping three of my five items. For my next Fix, I’m going to challenge my stylist to help me find a great dress for an upcoming wedding.
