Stitch Fix is a subscription-based personal styling service. It has an extensive range of clothing, all of which are very high-quality, with personal stylists all over the country. For a $20 styling fee, Stitch Fix will put together a box of 5 items for you. When they arrive, you can try them on in the comfort of your own home (without that awful department store lighting or those fun house mirrors). Then, you can send back what you don't want in a prepaid package and keep what you do! You only pay for what you want, and your $20 styling fee is subtracted from your order once you purchase one item. If you keep all five, then you get a 25% discount, which can sometimes make a HUGE difference.
Last month's fix (read about it here) didn't turn out so well for me. Although I've stuck to the same stylist for the past 8 months, none of it seemed to match my style. I, of course, spoke honestly in my review, but I love Stitch Fix far too much to be legitimately upset.
I wasn't planning on asking for another fix for a few months -- until they contacted me with an offer I just couldn't refuse. They offered to waive my styling fee of $20 if I requested a box within a week. Let's just say I took it.
- Pro: who doesn't want more fixes?!?!?!
- Con: money.
I was so unsatisfied with my October box, that I jumped at the opportunity for some better luck. UNFORTUNATELY FOR MY WALLET, the redo fix was exactly my style and the fit was perfect. In reality, I didn't save any money by taking advantage of their offer.
Here's my almost perfect fix!
Presley Colorblock Button-Back Sweater - $68
This sweater is so incredibly soft and I love how easy it is to throw on and fool the world into thinking that I'm actually a lady who has nice clothes. The button detailing gives it that extra flair. This is going to be my go-to sweater for the holidays.
2. Market & Spruce
Sebastian Tie Back Pullover - $68
This sweater, although not the perfect fit for me, was so unbelievably soft and comfy. If it had been ~$30 then I definitely would have kept it for those lazy days, but the price just wasn't worth it to me. I have enough oversized hand-me-downs and thrift finds. I kept it for the discount but ended up selling on one of the many Stitch Fix Facebook groups.
3. Le Lis
Kano Textured Knit Dress in Navy - $84
THIS DRESS!! I was in no way looking for a dress. I swear. And when I saw a dress on my style card, I said aloud to the husband, "I am definitely not keeping the dress." Until I put it on. It is so comfortable. Comfortable enough that I want to wear it to bed, and then wear it for the next three days. It's super stretchy and easily elevates my look even though it feels like pajamas.
4. Olive & Oak
Jerian Lace Detail Top in Black - $64.00
5. Level 99
Glenda Straight Leg Jean - $118
First, the jeans. I have never in my life had jeans that fit this well. I know that I said something similar in this post. But, I was wrong. I always assumed that my body just wasn't made to fit in pants like other people. But these straight leg jeans are the perfect fit. I now what like four pairs of them so I can toss out all of my other pants. They have some stretch and feel like I'm wearing LuLulemon. But these aren't jeggings. These are substantial jeans, with a butter-y feel, and the straight leg is a relaxed fit, but doesn't look like I'm wearing someone else's pants.
Can you tell I absolutely love these jeans?!?!?!
Second, The shirt. I love plaid. I love almost everything plaid. And the triple button detail in the front, and the lace insets and tailoring in the back is just beautiful. My only con: washing. In my Stitch Fix profile, I have repeated notes of "only send me easy wash and wear items." And by that, I mean, I'm lazy - if I can't toss it in the washing machine and then in the dryer and then leave in a hamper for a week, then it just isn't practical. This shirt is hand wash only, which is really problematic for me. So I technically kept it, but will probably sell on one of the various Stitch Fix Facebook groups.
