January Stitch Fix Review
It’s been quite a few months since I last tried a Stitch Fix. I discovered Trendsend back in October and was so thrilled with the experience and the price point, I never thought I would go back to Stitch Fix again. However, Trendsend recently broke my heart a little by starting to charge a 20 dollar style fee like Stitch Fix. Boo Trendsend! Why do you have to be so rude?!
If you’ve never heard of Stitch Fix, it’s a pretty cool idea. Here’s a 5 second run-down:
- Sign up, create a style profile, put in your sizes, your likes and dislikes in clothing and link up a Pinterest board.
- Pick the day you want your fix scheduled and write a note to your stylist if you have any requests or special events coming up
- Pay a 20 dollar styling fee that goes towards keeping any item in your box
- Wait for the mail
- Get your clothes, have three days to try them on, keep what you like, send back what you don’t in the prepaid envelope.
- Keep all 5 items, enjoy a 25% discount!
Anyway, with our cruise coming up, I decided I would give Stitch Fix another whirl and requested a dress for the cruise and some winter-spring transitional tops. I was paired with a new stylist who really listened to what I wanted and who must have actually looked at my Pinterest board, because I finally got some clothes that I felt were my style!
What I got in my January Stitch Fix Box:
Papermoon Bret Raglan Knit Top – $48.00 – This top was so comfy and soft and I liked that it had a blue color to it instead of being gray. I was almost able to look past the unflattering horizontal stripes because they were so thin, but the material was a little on the flimsy side to me. I could tell that it would develop pulls really easily, so I decided it wasn’t worth the money. However, I loved the style of it! Returned
Loveappella Kimichi Colorblock Lace Knit Top – 48.00 – While I loved the idea of the lace detail, this top didn’t have much shape to it and I own several black and grey tops, so it wasn’t needed. Returned.
Papermoon Carlito Dolman Knit Top in Pink – $38.00 – This was my favorite top out of the bunch; it’s a color I don’t own a lot of, and it’s super versatile. It’s light enough for spring and early summer, but it’s can also be layered for winter. It’s can be dressed up with a statement necklace or it can be paired down with some print leggings. Kept.
Gilli Adalea Dress – $58.00 – One of the more affordable dresses that Stitch Fix sent me, and I really liked the pattern on the bottom. However, it was a little short on me without leggings and the cut on the skirt was a little too high for my body type, so it wasn’t the most flattering. I was torn about the dress, but after asking for everyone’s opinion on Instagram (and getting a ton of great and honest feedback), I decided to send it back. Returned.
All in all, this was probably my best Fix to date because I finally got a stylist that understood my style. Even though I only kept one thing, I felt like all of these pieces were reflective of my personal taste. I’m still a little “meh” on the price point; I love that Trendsend sends me things a little more affordable from their sales racks.
But, I love getting mail and trying new things on, so I’ll probably schedule another fix in the next few months and make sure I get the same stylist!
What do you think about this Fix? Anything stand out to you? Make sure you pin anything you like for your stylist to see!
