Stitch Fix Review #1

420 Shares

Stitch Fix Review #1!  For anyone wondering, “Stitch what?”  Stitch Fix is a styling service where you fill out a profile and a stylist chooses five pieces (clothes, shoes, accessories) to send your way for a $20 styling fee.  If you keep anything from your fix your $20 fee is applied as a credit and if you keep all five things, you receive a 25% discount on your whole fix.  You have three business days to make your choices and anything you don’t like gets popped into a prepaid envelope and dropped into the mail.  Basically it’s a mail order personal shopper. Curious to find out more? You can sign up here with my referral code.

This isn’t my first fix, but this is my first reviewed fix.  I was hoping for spring/summer pieces, but I will say my box arrived a few days after a late season snowstorm.  My skin tone could best be described as “ain’t seen the sunshine since I don’t know when.”  Point being:  it was tough to put on and take a picture/record in some of these pieces!  But I like seeing real clothes on real people and I hope you do too!  I have a video and a written review, so if you’d rather read it or watch it, I’ve got you covered :).

Here was my note going into my fix (instead of my usual psycho constant updating of the note, I went simple this time.)

Stitch Fix Piece #1: Wisp Tressa Ponte Dress $74

stitch fix review

Initial thoughts:  I loved the bright colors on the black background on this one and I always love a ponte dress.  I don’t have any weddings or really dressy occasions coming up, so I’m not sure exactly how I would fit this in my wardrobe.

The Try-on:  I was surprised this was a cotton ponte, where I was expecting more of a nylon scuba knit.  It made it a lot less dressy than I was anticipating, which I liked, but it was also shorter than I was hoping.  So it’s too dressy for my date night style, but too short for a work dress.  No clear place to wear this one

The Verdict: Returned!

Stitch Fix Piece #2 The Leota Lula Knit Dress $78

Stitch fix review

Initial thoughts:  My initial thought was, “Ugh, Homecoming 1998.”  Nothing about this dress seemed trendy in the least.  I loved the color and was hoping it fit much different than it looked, but I was zero excited about this piece. 

The Try-on:  This was everything I was afraid it was going to be and more.  It does not look trendy, I actually look like I’m attending a cruise but like 35 years from now.  I’m heavier up top and the ruching isn’t doing me any favors.  The length and color are good, but I couldn’t put this in the return mailer fast enough.

Stitch Fix Piece #3: Skies are Blue Talula Romper, $68

 

stitch fix review

Initial thoughts:  I’m trying to get away from a boho vibe, and this seemed extremely boho.  Also, I like the idea, but not the reality of a longer sleeve up top and a shorts on the bottom.  There just isn’t any weather that really accommodates that look.  I love pairing a cardigan or something with a shorts outfit, with the idea being that as it warms up or cools down you can add that piece back in. 

The Try-on:  Nope!  I want to keep at it on finding a cute fun romper, but this was not it.  It really wasn’t long enough in the torso, and it was way too short for my lifestyle.  No way I could bend down to pick up a kid in this one.  I did love that this pieces had pockets ~ designers take note, women like to store stuff too ~ but this was a pass.

The Verdict: Returned!

Stitch Fix Piece #4: Z Supply Coopie Knit Pocket Tee, $34

stitch fix review

Initial thoughts:  Possibly a good basic layering piece.  I’m nervous that it’s all white because ~ kids ~ and I don’t typically wear plain tees like this, so it’s something different for me.

The Try-on:  It’s very drapey and a really luxurious feeling knit.  I liked that the v-neck wasn’t too low and the tunic length felt good.  At first I thought it was just a bit too drapey and it showed every bit of everything under the tee.  I had planned to return it, but then I tried it on with the final piece and had a last minute change of heart!

The Verdict: Kept!

Stitch Fix Piece #5 Finnegan Printed Short, $58

stitch fix review

 

Initial thoughts:  I was most excited about this piece!  A great print, hopefully a good length and a piece that could be dressed up a bit or stay casual.

The Try-on:  This was everything I hoped it would be and more!  A great fit, structured like a chino, but a good amount of stretch too.  Also shorts length for over-30 has been so hard for me.  Everything is MTV Spring Break style or 1950’s camp counselor.  Can’t we be trendy and not make it a total free show?  Yes, it turns out we can!  Another win here — pockets!  And I tried an alternative style on the Coopie Tee and really liked the way these two looked together.  These shorts were so great that they influenced my keeping another piece.
