Background on Stitch Fix for those who aren’t familiar: Basically, you sign up, fill out your “style profile” with lots of info around your style and the clothes you like to wear, then pay a $20 styling fee to receive a “Fix,” which is basically a box with 5 items (clothing/jewelry) specifically picked out for you! You get to try them all on at home with other pieces you own, then pay for & keep what you want (the $20 styling fee also counts as credit toward anything you keep) and send back what you don’t want (shipping both ways is free). You can check out their website for a lot of the nitty gritty details around how it works, but a friend posted about StitchFix on Facebook, I saw their website, and I was sold!
I was a little disappointed that I didn’t get to keep anything from my first fix, but have heard that the stylists & items in the fix typically get better with each round so I was hopeful! Fix #2 came this week and it’s definitely more “me” (and less “who I want to be”!
Hello, my beautiful Fix! I was a little surprised that my stylist changed (is this typical?) but regardless, thank you, Margaret!
The colors in my fix are so me… less “trendy” and kinda less “springy” but definitely classic, which is what I asked for.
Piece #1: LoveMarks AUSTIN DENIM BUTTON UP TOP ($68) – I still do not own a chambray/denim-y shirt (late to the party?) so I was open to the idea of one in my fix… but I didn’t love this one. The fit was okay & it’s super soft, but something about the color and the wash I didn’t like.
Piece #2: Kersh HERERRA COTTON BUTTON UP SHIRT ($58) – I also do not have a great white blouse (my closet is full of non-essentials, apparently!) but this wasn’t quite right… I liked the fabric (super super soft cotton) but it was too wide (you can kind of tell in that picture).
Piece #3: Chris & Carol ABRIANNA LONGSLEEVE KNIT CARDIGAN ($48) – I LOVE THIS. I probably own more cardigans than a person should, but I love this for a variety of reasons: 1) I want more “open” cardigans 2) I love the color and don’t have anything like it 3) lightweight fabric but not see-through 4) perfect for spring and 5) dress-up & dress-down. Keeping this!
Piece #4: Collective Concepts IVY SOLID TAB SLEEVE V-NECK BLOUSE ($58) – You can’t tell perfectly in the pictures, but it’s a really nice color – a little more nuanced than grey, but not so dark as black. I actually really like this piece– it’s loose (but not in an unflattering way), is SUPER comfy (you can probably tell), plus has super cute little tabs on the sleeves (you know I love the little things). I’m still trying to figure out if I’m going to keep it… If it wasn’t for the cardigan that I fell in love with, this would be a no-brainer.
Piece #5: Tart SALMA FRENCH TERRY STRIPED BLAZER ($128) – I had liked the cotton blazer in my last fix and put it in my feedback (that you fill out when you send things back) so my stylist sent another– I actually like this one MORE than the previous minty one because it fits a lot better & it’s a little more practical and easy to mix-and-match. Butttt… since it’s slightly out-of-my-price-range… it’s a go-back 😦 Sidenote: SHOULDER PADS!
Sooooo, that was Fix #2! I’m super happy that I found at least one thing I love (cardigan!) and am going to think through whether or not to keep that Collective Concepts top… thoughts? Want more pictures?? Help me decide please!
Would highly, highly recommend the service to anyone who’s looking for a few new pieces for spring and is down to try something totally fun and new. (It’s seriously so much fun… I have to stop myself from scheduling another one!) Thanks in advance for using my referral link if you’re interested in signing up for the waitlist!
