Stitch Fix Review #5

It’s been a while since my last fix due to the holidays coming up. We were gone the entire week of Thanksgiving, and with holiday shopping for others, I’ve put my own shopping on the back burner. But thankfully, I’m completely done with my holiday shopping and I just have to mail all the gifts back home!

For this Fix, I decided to be brave and just tell my stylist to send what she thought would look good. Typically she does a pretty good job trying to give me what I ask for, so I was curious to see what she’d send without prompting.

If you’re unfamiliar with Stitch Fix, here’s how it works:

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.


Now, on to the what came in this month’s box.



Sophie Rue Arick Pleated Bell Sleeve Blouse ($44) – RETURN

This blouse was what I was most excited for when I had my sneak peak at the box. Bell sleeves are a big trend this fall, and I love the neutral navy color and the pleats. I really thought they added a cute flare. I would have kept it, but it’s a little short for my torso. It hits right at the top of my jeans, meaning when I sit, skin would show. I prefer my tops to be longer, so that was the only deal breaker.

Mavi Freida Skinny Jeans ($98) – RETURN

My stylist has been trying to help me find new jeans for work for the last few fixes. I love that these are dark, because I think dark demin looks more professional. These were very comfortable, but as you can see, they’re short on me and flare awkwardly at the bottom. The 28” length doesn’t work for me since I’m 5’8” and I like my jeans to fit long. This is the third pair of ankle jeans I’ve received despite having said I don’t like them. I feel like they are made for shorter women and just aren’t for me!


DV8 Kaleen Bootie ($95) – RETURN

I have been waiting to receive a pair of booties in a fix! You can see Oli was unsure what to think. I think these are very cute, but aren’t really my style. I prefer a bit taller of a heel. They fit and they’re very stylish, and I love the grey. I tried them on with all of the outfits because they matched everything very well, but just weren’t for me.



Strut & Bolt Isobella Grommet Trim Cape ($68) – RETURN

This is a very interesting piece, and I actually liked it more than I thought I would upon looking at it. That’s why I have the rule of even if I don’t like how it looks, I have to try it on anyway because I seem to always be surprised by things. This didn’t look quite as bad as I thought it would, and was super warm. I’m not typically a fan of metal details, but this looks better in person. The only thing was since it’s a poncho, it’d be weird to wear to work, which is what I focus on. So it was a no go.


Liverpool Elody Puffer Coat ($98) – RETURN

This may be the first item by Liverpool I haven’t liked. I felt like an equestrian wearing it. I am not a fan of anything about it, sadly. Color and style are both off. I tried it on to be a good sport, but it’s a definite no. 

~

Unfortunately, this was the first box I’ve received that I haven’t kept anything from. I try to keep at least one piece from every box because it applies the styling fee, but I know that I wouldn’t wear any of these if I kept them.

It’s probably my own fault for not telling my stylist what I was looking for. Next time I’ll definitely
 be sure to ask for a few things.

  • 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. We’re all guilty of it 🤷🏻‍♀️. Click the link in my profile to read!  http://liketk.it/2zSzn #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • 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
