With the changing of the seasons, I was craving a wardrobe update and thankfully Stitch Fix came to my rescue! See, we were able to finally bust out our cardigans here in Phoenix for our morning walks to school and that’s our one hint of cooler temperatures and a cue for deeper jewel tones and thicker materials. Because I love checking out what everyone else receives from their stylists, I thought I’d share what a was sent, what I kept, and my thoughts on everything.
Before we dive in, let’s review exactly what Stitch Fix is. Stitch Fix is the personal styling service tailored to your taste, budget, and lifestyle that helps you look and feel your best every day. After signing up (with no commitment, I might add), you fill out an extensive style profile so your stylist can pick pieces that she thinks will suit you best.
When you’re ready to receive you first Fix, you simply schedule it online. While there is a $20 styling fee paid before your box is sent, that $20 applies directly to any pieces you choose to purchase. Everything comes perfectly packaged and includes cards to show recommendations on how to style each piece, an invoice with the breakdown of prices, and a return envelope for items you may not want. Bonus: if you choose to keep all five pieces sent to you, you get a 25% discount on it all!
Let’s dig in and check out all of the goodness that was sent my way!
First up: the styling cards.
These are one of my favorite parts of the entire fix, purely because the actual styling of pieces is where I totally suck. Even if I kept none of my items, I’d have this invaluable card that gives me helpful hints and tips on what to put together to look pulled together.
1. Moni Geo Print & Camisole Blouse from 41Hawthorn – $58
I had pinned a black and white version of this exact shirt with the hopes that it would be sent to me and I was so. freaking. excited when I pulled it out of my box! See, there are no guarantees that you’ll be sent what you’ve pinned and while you can attempt to request pieces, that isn’t really the point of the service.
The fit of this shirt was great, I loved the studded detail, and the color was spot on for fall. While I’m not a big fan of the included camisole for my longer torso, it wasn’t enough to deter me from falling head over heels for this top.
2. Calmia Roll Tab Top from Market and Spruce – $48
This top had so many things going for it from the start: the roll tab sleeves, the soft fabric, the cranberry and cream colors, the dainty geometric print. When I pulled this bad boy out of the box, I couldn’t wait to put it on. Unfortunately, that’s where things went south. I’m a tall girl and typically need longer length shirts and this one just didn’t have that going for it. Also, it was super loose around my midsection, which added extra pounds to my frame that I don’t have.
3. Banna Hooded Open Cardigan from Laila Jayde – $58
I am a cardigan-loving girl and because I get cold pretty easily, I wear one pretty regularly between now and March. The color and light thermal knit of this cardigan were awesome, but I just couldn’t justify the price tag for a plain piece.
4. Korbyn Geo Charm Layering Necklace from Bay to Baubles – $28
I’m not an accessories kind of girl. I struggle with adding necklaces or bracelets to my daily outfits and more often than not, the only piece of jewelry you’ll find on my body is my wedding ring. On my style survey, I indicated that I’d like to see jewelry every now and then so I was happy to see a necklace in this fix. I just wasn’t super wowed by the shapes that dangled.
5. Aryanna Dress from Loveapella – $58
There are certain prints and pieces of clothing that are adorable, just not for my body. I loved the theory behind this dress. It’s made of a super comfortable jersey that could be worn day or night and it had an awesome zipper detail in the back. I’m just not really comfortable with my body post baby #3 and the stripes seemed to showcase every flaw that I’m fighting. I took a picture to share with you, but I’m just not in it.
