For all of you out there who have never heard of Stitch Fix, here are a few words about it.
1. You start by filling out your style profile. Answer all sorts of questions on sizing, pricing, preferences, colors, etc. You can also write notes about likes/dislikes.
2. Order your first fix! Your card will be charged a $20 styling fee however, if you keep any item (one or more) you will be credited back the $20. You will receive 5 items (made up of clothing, jewelry, and handbags, whatever you prefer).
3. Decide what you want to keep and what you want to send back (in a postage paid envelope)! You have 3 business days to do so - use this time to try everything on, see what you have in your closet that pairs well with it and don't be afraid to say yes to something that you wouldn't normally. That's what makes Stitch Fix so fun! If you keep all 5 items you will receive 25% off your entire fix, winning!
As I said before, it is a subscription service, but you can order your first box and then decide to receive your next box in 6 months or 2 years, whenever you are ready! There is a referral program, so if you sign up through my links, I do get credit towards a new fix!
After receiving an okay first box and then a bust of a second fix.... I was ready for Fix #3!
Velvet Heart - Polk Button Down Top $78
I initially really liked this one - the shirt is super soft and hides most of the problem areas. I love the three-quarter length sleeves too! But then I looked at the wrinkles and said "no, thank you!" I also saw a very similar shirt (that looks way nicer) on a blog I follow for LESS money and that was a deal breaker for this one.
Doesn't her shirt look better? I like the gold toned buttons... and for $58, much better priced.
Plenty By Tracy Reese - Bridgette Neoprene Pencil Skirt $98
I asked for a pencil skirt (specifically one I found on a blog) and my stylist said she couldn't get it and so opted for this one. I also told her I didn't like too crazy of a pattern....not sure she listened to that one. I just think these aren't my colors...Brock may like orange, but not his Momma. Also can't justify the price of this skirt as a SAHM. It does fit me well and was super soft, but the color was a bit too much.
Urban Expressions - Elisha Zipper Accent Structured Satchel (Coral) $64
Free Heart - Kinderhook Chambray Top (Light Blue) $48
I had high hopes for it from the style guide...... (They send you examples of how to style each of the items you receive)
THML Chassie Textured Knit Dress $78
Verdict: Returned with heavy heart
What are your thoughts? Did I keep the right things?
