Stitch Fix Review #1

Even though this is technically the second stitch fix I’ve received, it’s the first one I’m creating a post for. I forgot to take pictures from the first one, and once you send the fixes back, you can’t see the photos anymore! I also didn’t take any pictures of the first fix…whoops. But I also didn’t keep anything from that fix, so you’re not really missing anything.

If you’re not familiar with how Stitch Fix works, here is a brief break down for you. If you know the drill, skip down to the good stuff!

If you’re interested in trying Stitch Fix, use my referral code and get your $20 style fee waived!

1.    Create a FREE style profile at StitchFix.com.
This is the fun part! It’s simple and doesn’t cost a thing. Just give them an idea of your body type and what you like to wear. Upload links for your Pinterest page to give your stylist some inspiration!
2.    When you are ready, schedule your first fix.
After you complete the profile, you can set up a time to have your fix shipped out. Your personal stylist will hand-pick out 5 items just for you based on what you said in your style profile. There’s a $20 styling fee, which is applied toward whatever you keep from your fix! There’s no monthly subscription fee, and shipping is free both ways!
3.    Try on your hand-picked clothes.
The best part! You can try on your fix clothes with what you already have in your closet and see how things work together. You have 4 business days to try them on and decide what to keep. You can even extend that if you need more time!
4.    Check out online.
You can check out on your computer, or through the handy app. You leave feedback for each item for your stylist and let her know your thoughts so the next fix can be even better. You’ll see the $20 styling fee applied to your items here. If you keep all 5, you get a 25% discount on top of that!
5.    Return what you didn’t love.
Didn’t love all of it? Place any unwanted items into the pre-addressed envelope that came with your fix, and drop it in the mail. It’s that easy (and free)!
6.    Schedule your next fix!
You can schedule you next fix any time. You’re not obligated to have one every month. You can request items for special events like a wedding or vacation, get new things every season, or get them as often as every 2-3 weeks! I personally like to receive mine every 3 weeks, just because it’s something fun to look forward to.
I had the same stylist, Mia, for this fix. At the end of your check out, you can ask to receive the same stylist, ask for another, or leave it up to them. I left it up to them after the first one, and got Mia again. This fix was better than the first, as I could tell she really tried to give me what I asked for. I asked for white jeans, a plaid shirt that was mostly white, and something for work. Each fix comes with a personalized note from your stylist telling you why they picked each piece for you and a few ideas for how to style them. I found this helpful when deciding how to pair the clothes with what I already have in my closet.
Liverpool Elizabeth Super Skinny Jean – $88 (RETURN)

I would have totally kept these jeans if they fit better in the waist, and weren’t ankle length. I received these exact jeans in black in my first fix, and I wanted to keep them, but I really didn’t like that they slip on and don’t have a button closure. I am all for making an investment in denim, since I wear it a lot on the weekends, but I was worried that over time the waist would stretch out and they wouldn’t stay up as well. With no belt loops to secure a belt when that happened, I had to say no. The black pair fit like a glove, whereas this white pair you can see the waist was too big. They were the exact same size, but it just goes to show that everything is made differently! I’m not a fan of ankle length jeans personally just because I am on the taller side (5’8’’) and like my jeans to all be long enough to touch the bottom of my heel. I’m going to request these again, just with a button closure and regular length. Otherwise they would have been a win!
Steven Santana Deconstructed Leather Loafer – $109 (RETURN)

I didn’t even have to take these out of the bag to know I wasn’t going to keep them. I asked for black flats for work as my current Steve Madden flats that I love are on their last leg. But I was hoping for actual flats, not loafers. I am not a fan of loafers at all. They’re just not my style. I’ve seen them on girls that can definitely pull them off, but I am not one of them. I took one out to see if they even fit, but immediately put it back. No indeed.

Pixley Kirsten Tie Sleeve Blouse – $48 (KEEP)

This top was a pleasant surprise. I love neutrals and specified that in my style profile. Bright colors don’t look good on me because I’m so pale, and I also like to be able to mix and match everything I have which is hard with bright colors as I’m one of those people who liked to mash instead of intentionally clash colors together. For my personal style, simple is better. Which is why I loved this shirt. It is simple and black, but has some really cute details. The keyhole neck is twisted at the top. The knotted sleeves add a cute little flare to an otherwise would-be plain shirt. This was a definite keeper as it’s perfect for work. The sleeves were a little on the short side, but they hit right at my wrist and I typically push my sleeves up anyway. I tried them rolled once and that was perfect.

ID: 23 Stephen One Pocket Top – $46 (RETURN)

I did ask for a button up plaid shirt that was mostly white, so in theory, this shirt should have been a win. But it was just a little too big for me, I felt like I was swimming in it. And I wasn’t overly in love with the blue. I’d prefer if it was black or grey with the white, and farther apart pattern wise. It was very soft, and I liked the pocket. Mia did listen to what I wanted, it just wasn’t a perfect match this round.
Edyson Maisha Ponte and Faux Leather Jacket – $88 (RETURN)
With the fall weather coming, I’m definitely always looking for new cute jackets to wear. This jacket is a push out of my comfort zone style wise, as it has both suede and faux leather. It fit quite well all over, but upon looking closely at it, I didn’t like the way the faux leather looked with the suede. To me it appeared a little cheap in terms of the edges and the stitching, and $88 isn’t exactly cheap for a jacket. I adjusted the lighting in the photos to show the contrast in the detail a little better. This jacket was just not for me. I do have a faux leather moto jacket that I need to get a replacement for, but this was not the winner. Hopefully one of the next few fixes will have another cute jacket to try.
Overall, this stitch was an improvement from the first one. I did expect there to be a learning curve as you can’t expect someone to know your exact style right off the bat. Upon checkout, I did request a different stylist. I’ve mad Mia the past 2 times, and while this fix was better than the last, I feel like trying someone else will offer a different perspective on my style. I try to go through my Pinterest fashion board and keep it as up-to-date as possible with what I’m hoping for from my fixes. I also note in my style profile what I do NOT wish to receive like velvet or embroidery or raw hem jeans which all seem to be ‘in’ this season. I much prefer my style to be classic and timeless, as trendy pieces are usually only good for one season before you won’t want to wear them again because they aren’t on trend anymore.

As you might know, I recently went through a big closet cleanse and got rid of approximately 70% of what I had in there. I go through my closet fairly often and get rid of things I don’t really wear anymore for whatever reason. I either sell my items on eBay for a steep discount, or what I feel like I can’t sell I donate to Goodwill. I like to keep my closet down to things that I really LOVE. The kind of things I would buy and then if I went out shopping and saw it, I’d buy it again. Learning to decipher between like and love have helped a lot, and Stitch Fix helps add an edge into it as I’m not really shopping for myself.

  • Comfy casual for errands is my style 👌🏻 also I love this hat because on the days I don’t feel like doing anything with my hair, hats are a lifesaver. And dry shampoo 😂. I put a poll up on my stories yesterday asking if you guys want to see a series of posts on #cozyminimalism and the answer was an overwhelming yes! I’ve already started working on them and will start posting next week so stay tuned!! In the mean time, check out my post on 12 ways you’re wasting money on clothes and how to stop.

  • Fun fact day about my wonderful husband: Jake has this uncanny ability to make me smile and laugh even when I’m sick. I was in bed all weekend but somehow he managed to still make me feel better. 
He is the king of puns and loves to make corny jokes. I’m talking real bad dad jokes. But I think they’re hilarious, and his enthusiasm and the fact that HE finds them so funny is the best part.

It’s the little things like this that showed me he was my perfect person. That and he told me he was going to marry me after 3 weeks of dating 😂🤷🏻‍♀️ which also made my laugh at the time but 9 months later he was down on one knee! 
That was also the same day I tried to break up with him because I had just gotten out of a bad relationship and I was starting to like him way too much too soon. I told him I wasn’t ready for another relationship and he literally said “are you trying to break up with me? ...no. We’re gonna get married.” I busted out laughing but he was so serious.
Even then, I could tell he really believed that. Now 4 months into our marriage he still shows me every day he wants to be married to me ❤️👰🏻🤵🏻 We have to appreciate the little things like the bad jokes because the effort behind them is how people say “I love you” in other ways. Happy Monday 💕#marriedlife💍 #marriagegoals
