Stitch Fix Review #4


It's time for another Stitch Fix review!  You can read my other reviews here and here.  

I scheduled this fix for mid March since I had a credit to the shop from my referral link!  You may remember in my last Stitch Fix review I was disappointed in the service and said I might not do again...well, those credits were calling my name and so was my desire for a few new transitional pieces to carry me into spring.  I made some notes to my stylist and hoped for the best! 

For those of you who aren't familiar with Stitch Fix, it is a styling service that sends you 5 pieces of clothing and/or accessories pulled specifically for you.  Once you receive the items you can try on, take pictures and see how they will work into your wardrobe - all in the comfort of your own home.  You have three days to decide to keep the items or send them back.  If you keep all five items you will receive 20% off the entire purchase.  If you send all 5 items back you lose your $20 stylist fee that would have been applied to your purchase.  Everyone fills out a style and fit questionnaire, but you can be as picky or open as you want in your communications to your stylist.  

So what did I receive and keep?
{And yes, I tried on the tops with Lululemon leggings.  These were taken on a Friday night and I was way too tired to change into better pants.  Sorry, not sorry}

ONE :: Mystree Braden Sweater, $68.00 - SENT BACK 
Loved the sweater.  Didn't keep because it is about to be too hot to wear in Houston.



TWO :: Kensie Rebekah Contrast Detail Blazer, $88.00 - SENT BACK
Loved the blazer and the color.  Wanted to keep, but it had a stain on it.  For $88 I didn't want to try and get the stain out myself!



THREE :: Fun2Fun Sheridan Striped V-Neck Tab Sleeve Blouse, $48.00 - SENT BACK
Liked the top.  The fit was okay and it just seemed a little cheap for fifty bucks.



THREE :: Pixley Ohara Faux Wrap Tie-Waist Dress, $68.00 - SENT BACK
FOUR ::  Pixley Kathy Striped Fit & Flare Dress, $68.00 - SENT BACK
Loved the style and color of both of these dresses, but they simply didn't fit.  #fatgirlproblems


FINAL THOUGHTS :: Even though it seems that I didn't like my pieces since I sent it all back, I was actually pleased with what was sent to me.  I could tell that the stylist actually listened to my requests and viewed my Stitch Fix Style Pinboard.  I asked for stripes, a blazer, neutrals and items that could be worn to the office and on the weekend. She did all of these things for me!  I wasn't too upset to send it all back since I didn't actually lose my $20 styling fee since I had credit. 

I would have purchased the blazer if it didn't have the stain.  I also would have purchased the sweater if it weren't for the fact that it's about to get very hot in Houston. 

I would definitely do Stitch Fix again in the future.  Did you hear that they now offer Maternity and Petite styling too? I would have loved this service when I was pregnant!!!


If you want to give Stitch Fix a try, you can use my referral link here to sign-up. 
Note that I will receive a $25 credit if you sign-up.  Hopefully then someone will do the same for you...it's like subscription box karma!

  1. I think both of the dresses look fantastic on you! They certainly don't look like they don't fit

  2. I got four or five Stitch Fix boxes last year and I never loved anything that I got! The sizing was always slightly off, and they ALWAYS sent me tank tops. I've never had good luck with it, but I'm considering signing up again!
