If you’ve been living in a cave and haven’t heard of Stitchfix, let me give you a little rundown on how it works. When you sign up for Stitchfix, you pay a 20 dollar style fee (which becomes a credit to go towards any item you may want to keep). You fill out a style profile, link up a Pinterest board with ideas of clothes and accessories you like and make specific notes to your stylist about anything specific you may want. Your stylist looks over your notes and profile and then sends you 5 pieces of clothing specifically curated for you! You get three days to try them on and think about them, and then you send back what you don’t like and keep what you do!
I tried and did a Stitchfix review for the first time in February and had a rather disappointing experience. I felt like the stylist didn’t really get my body type and sent me some really pricy pieces that didn’t flatter my body. I was willing to give it a second go after getting to California, because after wearing Motorcross jerseys for 8 months straight in cold Idaho, I needed some new spring/summer things for my wardrobe. I revised my notes to my stylist (asking for longer tops to cover my torso and more color) and added more to my Pinterest board and waited with crossed fingers.
Here is how my April Fix shook out:
Emory Spaghetti Strap Top ($44): While I liked the mixed material of this top and the colors, the neckline wasn’t my favorite and I felt like the stripes made me look wider then I am. Status: Returned
Fun2Fun Clarise Mixed Print Tank Top ($38.00)-This top was such a close keeper! I loved the colors, pattern and fabric, but it was a tad short in the torso for me and a little too flowy, so when I moved around, it wasn’t as flattering. Status: Returned
41Hawthorn Milan Lace Print Black Pleat Top ($58):I was a little unsure about this top when I pulled it out of the box because it looked super wide, but once I put it on, I fell in love. It’s really light, has a gorgeous pattern and is really flattering. It was on the pricier side, but the quality was just so good, I couldn’t pass it up. Status: Kept
Fun2Fun Sonoma Striped Sleeveless Top ($38): Another close success! Dustin liked this one a lot on me, but it was a little short on the torso, tight in the bust, and the horizontal stripes were not flattering. I did like the cut, material and general idea of it, though! Status: Returned
Angie Tenessy Chevron Print Maxi Dress ($78): I had asked for a skirt, but my stylist said she didn’t have any in the length I requested, so she sent me this maxi dress instead. I loved the color and the pattern, but the weird drop waist really bothered me. Plus, it was a pretty heavy fabric for California heat and too pricy for me. Status: Returned
Overall, even though I only ended up keeping one top, I was really happy with this fix. I felt like my stylist really listened to the things I wanted and several of the tops were such close keeps, I really appreciated that my stylist stayed closer to the price point that I wanted, as well. My first fix for all five pieces was way over 250 dollars; if I had chosen to keep all five pieces in this fix, it would have been $177.00. I definitely think I’m getting closer to getting a completely successful box, so I scheduled another fix for May!
