Before going into my review of this fix, I just wanted to mention something: I receive nothing from Stitch Fix for writing these reviews. All of the items I’ve kept, I’ve purchased with my own money. What you’re getting is my 100% honest opinion of the service and the specific items I receive. Why do I do it? Mostly because it’s fun! I’ve never really been into fashion, until I became a mom and realized that I needed a major wardrobe upgrade and didn’t want to go shopping with 2 kids. So an online personal styling service seemed like a worthwhile thing to try, and I enjoy blogging about it. And reading other blogs about it. Stitch Fix does have a pretty awesome referral program though, so you will see my referral link in all of my reviews. If you use the link to sign up and order your fix, I get a $25 credit to put toward a future purchase. Don’t feel obligated to use it of course, but if you do, I’d certainly appreciate it 🙂 And then you can use your own referral link to get your own credit, thus spreading the Stitch Fix goodness.
Ok, on with the show!
For this fix I requested either Melody or Tracy to be my stylist. Melody styled my very first box, which I loved, but nothing fit (except for the one tank I kept). And Tracy styled my last fix (the one where I kept everything!) My request was granted and I got Melody! Apparently she’s working out of the Indianapolis location because that’s where my fix shipped from this time (instead of San Francisco). Overall, not a bad box. Not another 5/5 winner, but my wallet is okay with that 🙂
Let’s start with the bad, shall we?
Axelle Colorblock Jacket
This jacket is just not my style. It’s REALLY warm (which isn’t necessary right now in CA). And I don’t need anymore jackets in my wardrobe (I’ve already purchased 2 from Stitch Fix). Also, it’s clearly too small. And I don’t like the neckline…I felt like I was suffocating. VERDICT: Returning
Tamar Lace Detail Sweater
I like the idea of this one. “Let’s take the ultimate casual/comfy grey sweatshirt and add some lace detail to make it more fashionable.” But it doesn’t work for me. If this was indeed a *sweater* (like it’s named), I probably would’ve kept it. But this is not a sweater, it’s a sweatshirt. I just didn’t feel great in it. And it was slightly damaged (some threading on the inside of the sweater was loose). VERDICT: Returning
Okay, now for the good!
Saxby Scoop Neck Top
This is simple and casual and very “me.” It’s thin, so perfect for spring and summer. I like the coral colored stripes. And it fits. VERDICT: No-brainer keeper.
Cathleen Split-Neck Tulip-Sleeve Blouse and Connely Skinny Jean
First, the blouse. I LOVE the color. It’s bright and bold and will look fantastic with other pops of color (necklaces, scarves & other accessories). It has interesting ruching on the sleeves and I like the pleating on the shoulders. It’s a classic, versatile piece. I have to admit, when I looked it up (before actually receiving it), I thought it would be pretty boring and not at all flattering on me. This is one of the reasons I love Stitch Fix. I would’ve never picked this out for myself at a store. Actually seeing something on your body, instead of the hanger, can make a big difference! VERDICT: Keeping
Next, the black skinnys. I’ve been requesting these for awhile. I think they’re a staple wardrobe item. These fit and feel amazing. VERDICT: Keeping.
Also, that outfit makes me feel like a grown-up. And I like it.
The End 🙂
