Stitch Fix Unboxing | February 2018
It’s been a while since I got a Stitch Fix and since my last one was my favorite one of all time, I was excited and felt fairly confident that this one would be awesome, too. Spoiler Alert – this may have been one of my least favorite fixes, ever. I wasn’t excited about anything that was sent to me and was a bit confused since my previous fix had been so awesome.
If you haven’t heard about Stitch Fix, here’s how it works: You fill out a style profile on Stitchfix.com and link up a Pinterest board to clothes you like. You pay a $20 dollar styling fee and can write a note with any special requests for specific clothing you may be looking for. A stylist picks out 5 items of clothing and accessories and sends them to your house! You have 3 days to try them on in the comfort of your home and then you 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. You can adjust the dates when you want a fix sent to you (so you don’t have to get one every month – I currently get one every three months.)
Here’s what came in my February Stitch Fix Box:
(p.s. please ignore the messy office – real life!)
Sneak Peek – Carrie Distressed Girlfriend Jean ($68.00)
I had requested for a pair of lightly distressed denim for springtime and this is the pair my stylist sent me. I liked that these jeans weren’t super distressed and only had holes in the knees, but girlfriend/boyfriend cut jeans are not flattering on my body, so I wasn’t a fan of the fit of these. I felt like they made my hips and thighs look huge! They also were two sizes too big for me in the waist (thanks, Keto Diet!) so even if I did like them, they did not fit right. Status: Returned.
Romolo – Iver Mini Fringe Collar Necklace ($38.00)
I really liked this necklace and felt like I didn’t own anything quite like it. It’s the perfect mixture between being a delicate piece and a statement piece. It’s not too chunky or bold but still stands out. I have quite a few tops in my closet that have necklines that would really show off this necklace, so I decided to keep it. Status: Kept
Nine Britton – Avery Keyhole Neck Knit Top ($40.00)
I liked the color of this top, but that’s pretty much it. The material felt cheap and flimsy and not at all cozy (like it looks like it should.) It also had a weird fit to it and flair out at my hips. Not worth the money! Status: Returned
Pixley – Beckett V-Neck Blouse ($48.00)
I asked for a couple bouses that I could layer with cardigans for my work and this is the one my stylist sent. While I liked the fit and v-neck detail, I ultimately decided that I wasn’t a huge fan of the print. I love floral prints, but this one felt a little too childish and cartoonish for my office. Plus, I felt like the color palette was more of a winter scheme and not as springy as I wanted. Status: Returned
Absolutely – Myrtle Pullover ($44.00)
While I loved that this top really accentuated my waist (I haven’t looked this skinny in stripes in a long time) I wasn’t a fan of how scratchy the material felt on my skin. Also, I felt like this top was a little…outdated, maybe? It just didn’t feel as on-trend or exciting to me and I felt like I could find something similar for a fraction of the price at Marshalls or TJ Maxx. Status: Returned.
Long story short, like I said above, this wasn’t the best fix I’ve ever received. I like Stitch Fix because they usually send me super unique pieces that I couldn’t find anywhere else, but this fix felt bland and boring. I made sure to leave detailed feedback on the app when checking out so that my stylist would know why I wasn’t a fan of this fix. Hopefully my next one will be a little better!
