Stitch Fix Review – April 2015

Do you know about Stitch Fix?  If not, you should!

In short, Stitch Fix is an online personal styling service that sends five pieces of clothing and/or accessories that have been selected specifically for you by a personal stylist, based on your style, budget, and fit preferences.  Your “fix” is delivered right to your door, and you can try everything on in the comfort of your home and style each piece with items you already own before decide what you’d like to keep.  Keep what you want, and then send the rest back in the prepaid mailer.  You pay only for what you keep, and while there is a $20 styling fee, this amount is deducted from the cost of the items you choose to keep.  If you keep all five items, a 25% discount is applied.

It’s like Christmas to get a box of beautiful clothes that my sweet stylist has picked out just for me!  I love shopping, but Iately I’m focusing on buying fewer, higher quality pieces that I absolutely love (rather than filling my closet with lots of “good deals” that I don’t feel fantastic wearing).  Stitch Fix is helping me tremendously with this, and helps me discover new favorite pieces that I wouldn’t necessarily have picked for myself but end up loving.

Currently, I receive a scheduled “fix” each month (you can choose to schedule deliveries, or just request a box each time you want one).  I asked for great spring colors, fun patterns, and unique details, and my stylist certainly delivered.

I was enamored as soon as I pulled this beautiful Daniel Rainn blouse out of the box.  I love, love, love polka dots!  This was right up my alley.  I have several other Daniel Rainn blouses, and consistently love the style and quality.

I styled it with my mint jeans, a chunky bead necklace, and summery flats.

I really liked it.  Notice I say liked.  Not loved.  While this blouse did work well with my mint jeans, I felt like it kind of washed me out. At the time, I felt like the pleats in front made it look a bit maternity-like on my body. I really wanted to keep it, but in the end sent it back.

Next, I tried on the Pixley Triste Swing Skirt.

I added a bold cobalt cardi and wedges.  This is one of my go-to outfit types for work, and I love an A-line swing skirt.  And stripes.  Oh, stripes.  A definite keeper.

Next up, the Pixley Colibri Bird Print Tab Sleeve Blouse.

This was a piece that I had pinned to my Pinterest board, and I was beyond excited that my stylist included it for me to try.  Just look at that fun pattern and the perfect color palate for spring time!  I paired it with white denim and wedges.

I was sold on this blouse because of the pattern alone.  I like that it’s on the longer side, but also trimmer and doesn’t swallow me.  Another keeper!

The Daniel Rainn Deena Crochet Back Blouse was a bit of a stretch for me.  I didn’t love the pattern, but I tried it with an open mind.  My stylist often surprises me with pieces that push me out of my comfort zone but I end up loving.  Look at that beautiful crochet back!

I styled this top with my black cropped pants and wedges.

I liked this top more on than off, and I especially loved the crochet back.  It just didn’t speak to me– again, I liked it but didn’t completely love it.  I’m trying to be very selective and choose only pieces that I really love and make me feel fantastic, so this one went back.

Lastly, I tried the 41Hawthorn Dita Sleeveless Ponte Dress.

This color was so pretty.  I so wanted to like this dress, but it was just waaaaay too tight through the bust.  Like, too tight for me to even show you a picture.  You’ll just have to trust me.  Unfortunately, back it went.

Here’s the rundown:

  • 41Hawthorn Dita Sleeveless Ponte Dress, $68 – RETURNED
  • Pixley Triste Swing Skirt, $58 – KEPT
  • Daniel Rainn Bilson Dot Print Pleat Detail Blouse, $68 – RETURNED
  • Pixley Colibri Bird Print Tab-Sleeve Blouse, $48 – KEPT
  • Daniel Rainn Deena Crochet Back Blouse, $68 – RETURNED

So, what do you think?  I’m kind of having returners remorse about the Daniel Rainn dot blouse.  Should I have kept it?
