So, I haven’t done a Stitch Fix post in a couple of months. Mostly because I get busy and forget to do photos and also the past couple of boxes have just been so-so.
I will say that I’ve never gotten a box where I didn’t keep ANYTHING, which is great. But I got a new stylist a couple months ago (no explanation why — did she quit? Was she fired for eating someone else’s Twinkies in the break room? I NEED MORE ANSWERS) and it took a month or two to feel like the new stylist really got a feel for what I liked.
I was really happy with this month’s box. I am NOT so happy with the photos, but that’s what happens when you have your nine year old son do them and all he really wants is to get back to his video games.
If you need more info, Stitch Fix is a service that sends you five items of clothing per month based on a style profile you fill out. This is based not only on style, but also on budget — you can choose if you want to go cheaper or pricier.
The service costs $20 a month – – that is the fee for getting styled and having the clothes shipped to you. Once the clothes arrive, you try them on. If you decide to keep any, that $20 fee is deducted from the cost. If you send any back, it’s so easy. There is a postage paid envelope included, so you don’t even have to make a trip to the post office!!
Now — here’s what I got this month!!
Loveappella Leandro Chevron Stripe Henley Knit Shirt
Sanctuary Rizzo Skinny Ponte Pants
First off, sorry for the incredibly awkward photo. I assure you I am human and not an alien robot.
Moving forward — this cute purple top and the black pants were both in my box. The pants were kind of a cross between slacks and leggings and are SO comfy. I really liked them a lot!! The purple chevron top was kind of thin, so it will be great going in to Spring, or paired with a cardigan on colder days. It’s a bit long too, so I think I’d feel comfortable wearing it with leggings if I had a long cardigan over it.
41Hawthorn Aleah Heathered VNeck Dolman Top
I am such a fan of slouchy, dolman sleeve tops, so this green top was PERFECT!! I loved that the color is NOT a color I normally buy — my closet is full of black, gray and blue — and this top is great for wearing around the house when I still want to feel cute and presentable.
Under Skies Gabrielle Ikat Print Fit & Flare Dress
This is one of those dresses that might not translate through photo — it looked super cute in person!! When I first got it out of the box, I was all, “ewww, no” but then I tried it on and was pleasantly surprised. Super cute with tights and booties and a cardigan. And again, a great Spring transition piece. The jewel tones will be great for Fall, too!!
Fate Garvey Tribal Print Cardigan
Lastly, this tribal print cardigan. I am such a sucker for a cozy cardigan, and this is perfect for pulling on in the mornings when I get up early to do my devotional and drink tea, but it’s also great with yoga pants for running errands. I could also dress it up with skinny jeans, boots, and a few layered necklaces.
Stitch Fix gives a 25% discount for keeping everything, so my total was $220 for the box. Not bad for two tops, a dress, a sweater, and a pair of pants. Again — I get credit for referral sign ups (you do too if you are a member!), so that helps a TON with the cost. I would never normally spend $220 a month on clothes. But that’s what I love about the service, I can keep or send back what I want based on my budget, and have an opportunity to earn credit if friends sign up.
I can’t tell you what a huge HELP this service has been since having Lucy — toddlers are NOT dressing room friendly. I can send my stylist a note if I have a special event or trip coming up, and she will try to accommodate me with appropriate styles. As a new (second time) mom, I cannot recommend this service enough. I ended up liking it much more than I expected to.
I can’t wait to see what’s in next month’s box. Have a great day!!
