One of my February Goals this month was to try a subscription box! I decided to give Stitch Fix a try because I just purged my closet of basically everything and wanted some new clothes. Stitch Fix is a pretty cool concept. Basically, you pay 20 dollars for each “Fix” and you can pick how frequently you want a Fix delivered (every month, every other month, or basically, whenever). You fill out a style profile, set a price range, link up your Pinterest boards and leave any notes to your stylist about what you are looking for. Each Fix comes with 5 pieces of clothes/accessories and you have three days to try them on and see what you like. Your original 20 dollars can be used as a credit towards anything you want to keep, and if you want to keep all five pieces, you get an additional 25% off. Anything you don’t want, you send back in a prepaid envelope!
I was really looking forward to my first Fix and it arrived really fast (about 5 days after I signed up). Each box comes with a note from your stylist and pictures of how to style each piece they sent you. This is what I got in my first fix!
Zad Loretta Spike Necklace-$28.00,The necklace is something I would never have picked out for myself, but I surprisingly liked it a lot! Abrianna Longsleeve Knit Cardigan in Jewel Tone Purple-$48.00, The Cardigan was a really pretty color and quality material. I specifically asked my stylist to include colors in my tops because I tend to gravitate to blacks and greys, so I was happy to see this color. Mavi Hiedi Jean in Black – $98.00. The jeans fit really well, but were too expensive for what I had asked for.
Tomson Mixed Material Top – $54.00. While I liked the concept of the colors and patterns, this top was way too short for me. I have a long midriff and without an undershirt, this would have shown off three inches of my belly! I can’t imagine what would happen if I had to lift my arms up for something!
Thomson Cross Front Blouse in Navy – $68.00. Once again, I really liked the concept of this top, but it was a little too short on my torso for me. It was also above the price range I had asked for, so that was a bummer.
While it was super fun to get a package in the mail, I was a little disappointed in my first fix overall. I felt like my stylist listened to what I said about color, but didn’t pay attention to the price range I wanted to stay in. I decided to keep the necklace, because my 20 dollar credit makes it only an additional eight dollars. I really like it, surprisingly!
I think I will try another fix in a month or two, when the weather is warmer. This wasn’t a terrible experience, I just think I need to be even more specific in my notes to my stylist about what I am looking for!
