Stitch Fix Review - March 2016

I enjoy shopping so while I've always been curious about Stitch Fix, I didn't think it would be for me because it would take away from something I like to do. Still, I do like the element of surprise of what you get in your box so I thought I'd give it a try!

If your not familiar with Stitch Fix, it's a personal shopping service that shops for you and delivers five pieces of clothing and/or accessories to your door. You can schedule your deliveries monthly or whenever you choose. The charge for the monthly styling fee is $20. If you decide not to keep anything, you send it back in a prepaid envelope and are charged the styling fee. If you keep one or more pieces, the $20 styling fee is credited towards your purchase and if you purchase all five pieces, you receive a 25% discount.You can check out Stitch Fix yourself by clicking my referral link here.

Here's what I got in my first Stitch Fix box:

#1 Jes Keyhole Blouse $48
#2 Mavi Freida Skinny Jeans $98



First up is this blue and white print top from Fun2Fun. I loved the keyhole front and cut out detail in the back. It's the perfect everyday top you can dress up for work or down with jeans. While I liked it, it didn't wow me. Verdict: Returned. 

Next up are these Mavi skinny jeans. They fit like a glove, are the perfect length and have a stretch to them so it almost feels like you are wearing leggings. I didn't have any dark wash jeans so these were a keeper. Verdict: Kept.

#3 Twila Faux Shearling Jacket $74

 


My first impression was this is a keeper. The sleeves and back are knit and the front faux suede lined with fleece. It's super soft and drapes nicely and can be worn with a top and jeans or over a dress with boots. With spring right around the corner, I didn't think I would get much use out of it until next fall. Verdict: Returned.


 #4 Myah Cowl Neck Pullover $68
#5 Mckay Fringe Detail Tote $64


This cobalt blue sweater was gorgeous and cozy. I don't have many cowl or turtleneck sweaters, but again, with the weather warming up, I wanted to invest my dollars on spring ware. Verdict: Returned.

The Mckay fringe detail tote was the perfect size and it came with a zippered pouch. I have so many totes, it didn't make sense to add another to my collection. Status: Returned. 

There you have it, my first Stitch Fix box revealed! It's still cold here so it was packed with winter items but I would have preferred to get pieces for spring. With that said, I love the idea of having a personal stylist pick things for me and I did like the element of surprise when I got it in the mail. While it isn't something I would do monthly, I think it would be fun to schedule a fix every few months! If you want to give Stitch Fix a try, click here to sign up!
