Stitch Fix #4

If you are keeping track of how many "fixes" I have blogged about, which is something most of you are probably not doing, this is my fourth Stitch Fix Box, but I have only done three posts. Why you ask? Well, because for my 25th birthday I received a box and I was extremely disappointed in what I received. I did not even care enough to take pictures of my items and I have honestly forgotten what was even in the fix. I was over the whole process and did not even have the desire to schedule any new fixes for almost a year. Out of the blue I just felt like scheduling one and since Stitch Fix has gained popularity in the last year, I was hopeful that I would have better results. And I most definitely did. This fix really messed with my brain and I had the hardest time deciding what I wanted to keep and what I wanted to send back. So here are all of my items and my thoughts behind my decisions.

For those of you who have never heard of Stitch Fix, here is the concept. You fill out an online profile of your size and style, and from there your stylist picks out 5 items to send to your front door. Then you can try on the clothes in your own home and decide what you like (and would like to keep) and what you do not like (and would like to send back). They even include a pre-paid shipping bag for all of the clothes you want to send back. It costs $20 to send your box, but if you like something and decide to keep it, the $20 can be applied to your purchase as a credit. If you do not like anything and decide to send it all back, you pay the $20 as a "styling fee". Also, if you keep everything in the box, you get 25% off the entire purchase.

THML-Jardina Split Neck Tunic- $64 {Kept}
The minute I put this tank top on, I fell in love. I love how loose and flowy it is and even better is its extremely comfortable. Richard told me he did not love this shirt, but I did not even care. I am always on the hunt for longer shirts that I can wear with leggings and this top is perfect for that.

Market & Spruce-Spencer 3/4 Sleeve Striped Dress- $58 {Kept}
This was one thing I had a hard time deciding on. I kept going back and forth on whether or not I should keep it and even after I decided to keep it, I questioned my decision. Richard loved this dress on me so I think his opinion swayed my opinion. I really don't like the neckline on this dress for some reason, it just looks weird to me. But, I was able to add a scarf to the dress and I think that makes a big difference. I also don't really wear dresses all that often anymore so I struggled with how much I would really wear it. But I kept it and so far it is working well for me.

Pixley-Lillibeth Stud Detail Blouse- $58 {Sent Back}
This shirt was something I could take or leave. It is definitely outside of my comfort zone and I would have been fine with keeping it had I decided to keep everything in the box. But, I did not love it and I did not hate it. It was a little big and I think that was my main reason for not loving it.

I really really wanted to love this shirt. I loved the pattern and the style, but it was just a little too big and I did not love where it ended on my arms. It sounds weird, but it is true. If the arm holes had cut in just a little bit more I would have loved it. Looking at these pictures makes me wish I would have kept it, but in person I knew I did not love it so I sent it back.

Liverpool-Kona Distressed Boyfriend Jean- $78 {Sent Back} Pictured Below
This was another item that I would have been happy with had I kept it, but I did not love it enough to choose to buy them. I just have a really hard time justifying paying that much for a pair of jeans considering we are trying to get pregnant. They were again a little big as well so that affected my decision too. They look super cute in these pictures and I probably would have worn them, but I hate buying clothes I don't love for a price I don't love.
As you can see, I had a really hard time deciding whether to keep everything or just some things. That discount is no joke. It makes things really confusing when trying to decide. But, I was able to save myself about $100 by choosing not to buy everything and only by a few things I really liked. Although, part of me wonders if I really should have kept the dress. If you noticed in my description, I mentioned that a lot of these items were too big. I have the hardest time deciding my size, even when I go shopping in person. I decided after this fix to change my shirt size from a small back down to an extra small. Most of these shirts are loose fitting anyway, so I feel like an extra small will not be too small on me. I have already had a fix since this one, which I am sure I will share eventually. The extra small definitely works for me.

If you are interested in giving Stitch Fix a try, here is my referral link. I receive $25 for anyone who signs up using my link, but then you can share with friends and receive money too!

Overall, I was extremely satisfied with my items and I am sure I will be scheduling one again sometime soon.

  2. Love the dress! Have you considered asking for petite tops? It looks like the length of the tops in your Fix is not proportional to your body type.
