January 2019 Stitch Fix Unboxing & Try-On
I wasn’t going to do a post on this Stitch Fix box, but a few of you spied it on my stories last week and wanted to see what was inside, so I whipped out my camera and decided to do a quick unboxing and try-on! This clearly is my best hair day ever (not) but hey – growing out bangs is a hard thing to do, you know?
If you have never heard of Stitch Fix before, here’s how it works: StitchFix is a clothing subscription service, where you have a personal stylist that sends you 5 items of clothing and accessories to try on in the comfort of your own home. You pay a $20 dollar styling fee and can write a note with any special requests for specific clothing you may be looking for or occasions you need to be dressed for. Note – I’m currently on the Style Pass, where I paid a one-time $50.00 fee (that went to whatever I wanted to keep) and then had the ability to get unlimited fixes for a whole year without the $20.00 stylist fee. You can mail back whatever you don’t like in a prepaid envelope and keep what you do like! The $20 dollar styling fee goes towards anything you want to keep and if you keep all 5 pieces, you receive a 25% off discount of the total of the clothes.
StitchFix is a fun way for me to try out new trends or styles that I normally wouldn’t pick out for myself. My stylist always gives me something to push me a little bit outside of my comfort zone and it’s fun to mix and match pieces with what I already have in my closet to see how I could style them. Stitch Fix prices do tend to be on the higher side, but the quality (for the most part) is decent. Some things are definitely not worth the price, but there are some good finds if you keep up with them and try to be as specific as possible with what you are looking for in your fix.
So, without further ado, here is my January 2019 Stitch Fix Unboxing
Nine Britton Maleah Cut Out Back Knit Top – $34.00 – I really liked the material of this tee, and the fit. It was loose but still fitted enough to give my body a little shape. I didn’t take a picture of the back, but it had a matching v-neckline in the back, with a strap going across the top, like a keyhole, which was a fun detail. However, I felt like this color would be more appropriate for the fall and didn’t think I would get a lot of wear out it with spring around the corner. If it had come in a more springy color, I probably would have kept it! STATUS: RETURNED
PINK CLOVER Marni Waterfall Cardigan – $44.00 – This had a great weight to it and was definitely higher quality then previous Stitch Fix cardigans have been, but, to be honest, I didn’t think this was anything special. I like waterfall cuts on cardigans, but this seemed a little excessive in draping and looked heavy on me. I already have a striped cardigan that I love and fits me a lot better, so I didn’t really have a reason to keep this and didn’t think I’d get a lot of wear out of it. STATUS: RETURNED
Marc New York – Andrea Faux Leather Zipper Puffer Jacket – $88.00 – Okay, I don’t know what crazy person decided that this jacket looked like faux leather, but they must have been on Mars because this is the LEAST leather-looking-like coat I’ve ever seen. Not only that, but the material felt SO thin and cheap and definitely not warm or cozy. I felt like the wind would cut right through me in this! Plus, I already have plenty of coats for winter, so spending money on another one was the last thing on my to-do list. STATUS: RETURNED
Market & Spruce Fallan Twist Back Plunging V Neck Sweater – $58.00 – I really loved the color and material of this sweater, and of all the things that were sent to me in this fix, it was my favorite. However, I was worried about how hard it would be to keep my undergarments hidden with the deep plunging v-neck back and didn’t want to have to worry about layering it every time I wore it. Plus, to be honest, the price was just a little too high. I’m all about paying for quality, but 45 dollars is typically the max I’m willing to pay for a sweater. STATUS: RETURNED
Rune Maesen Mesh Detail Moto Leggings – $58.00 – I’m not going to lie – these felt like a super cheap, thin copy-cat pair to my Old Navy Moto Leggings and my Old Navy Moto Leggings are FAR better. Hard hard pass on these the second I put them on – the quality was not there and the price did not match the quality. STATUS – RETURNED
So, yes. I returned every single thing from this fix. I’ve DEFINITELY had better (see this one, where I kept every item that was sent to me) and I just felt underwhelmed by the things that were sent. I like staple pieces, but not for the prices that these were priced at. If I’m going to pay a little more, I want unique and high-quality pieces that I can’t find anywhere else, ya know?
What did you think of this fix? Did I return anything you would have kept?
