Today I am going to be giving a full review of my experience with Stitch Fix. I have only received three boxes so far, but I think I have had enough experience to form an honest opinion. Although I failed to document my first three boxes with pictures, I will provide the pictures I do have and will show you what I kept in each box. Here is how it works…The first thing you have to do is create an account. This includes filling out a detailed profile where you will be asked to rate different groups of clothing and how much it matches your taste. You also have an opportunity to disclose any colors or specific patterns you dislike such as plaid or stripes. Once you complete your styling profile, you have the opportunity to make a Pinterest board so a Stitch Fix stylist can get an even better idea of your style. You can also leave a very detailed note for your stylist (this is very important) to tell them about what specific items of clothing you are looking for or any special events you have coming up. Each fix consists of 5 pieces and you also must choose the frequency in which you want to receive fixes. You can choose to receive a fix every 2-3 weeks, every month, every other month, or every three months. Once you have scheduled a fix, you are charged a $20 styling fee which will be used as credit towards any purchases you make. Once you receive your fix, you are given three days to try on the clothing and to check out online. Each fix comes with a prepaid bag so all you have to do is put the items you don’t want to keep in the bag, seal it up and stick it in the mailbox. It is that simple! Now that I have given you the introduction, I am going to detail each of the three fixes I have received.
Stitch Fix #1: For my first fix, I did not make a Pinterest board and did not leave a message for the stylist. I was clearly leaving it up to luck! It was obvious that my stylist catered towards clothing that was suitable for work. I received a pair of black skinny pants which were excellent quality and fit perfectly. However, I couldn’t justify keeping them for the price. They were around $70 and I just felt that was too expensive. I also received a grey quarter length sleeve blazer. Although it was the perfect fit, I just don’t wear blazers that often, so I ended up sending it back. The next item I received was a green sleeveless blouse that had a black lace design. I did like the blouse, but again felt the price was a little high at around $58. I also received a navy blue and white sleeveless blouse for around $28. Although I liked the price was on the less expensive end, the material was really thin. I didn’t feel the quality was good enough to justify keeping. The last item I received and the piece I ended up keeping was a gold, metallic cross body purse. I found it was perfect for date nights and formal events. The gold detail chain on the purse made it very unique. It cost around $38 and with the $20 styling fee, I only paid $18. Below is a picture of me wearing my purse. This was the only item I kept from my first fix. I was unsure whether I wanted to receive another fix, but wanted to give it another shot.
Stitch Fix #2: I am so glad I decided to try Stitch Fix again because my second fix was fantastic! So much so that I kept everything in the box! When you keep all 5 items in a fix, you receive a 25% discount. Here is what my receipt looked like:
Below I have pictured each item I received in the fix. When I opened the box, I wasn’t too sure how I felt about some of the items. However, when I tried them on, I fell in love! Each piece was excellent quality and fit perfectly. I couldn’t bare the thought of parting without any of the pieces, so I purchased all 5. So what was the difference between my first and second fix? I left a note for my stylist. I told her I was looking for either cargo shorts or dress, and was looking for cute summer clothes since I live near the beach in Florida. My stylist absolutely delivered!
Stitch Fix #3: My last fix was great but not as great as the second one. I attribute that to the fact I forgot to leave a note for my stylist before my fix shipped. Since my last fix was more on the casual side, my stylist wanted to incorporate more clothes that were work appropriate. Below are the three pieces I decided to keep in this fix. I kept the necklace because I don’t own anything like it. I also loved the color of the sleeveless top and it matched perfectly with the skirt. When I first opened the box, I hated the skirt. However, after trying it on, I was shocked by how much I loved it. The two pieces I returned included a blazer that was almost identical to the one I received in my first fix except it was black. I also returned a cute polka dot sleeveless top. I really liked it but again thought the price was too expensive.
I will make sure to document my next fix with pictures including packaging and each piece I receive. Overall my Stitch Fix experience has been fantastic! I have been able to try pieces I never would have picked out for myself. I just hope in the future they can start incorporating pieces that are less expensive.
