So, if you have been around here a while, you will know that I have tried Stitch Fix twice in the past and had horrible luck. I followed all the "tips" people suggested and it was just a joke. However, last month, Stitch Fix contacted me and asked me if I would give them another try. They informed me that they changed how they did the orders on their end and they were confident that they could make me a happy customer. I obliged so, I am currently on a 3 month trial period with them. During this three months, I will be receiving 6 boxes.
Basically, I got so fed up after 12 boxes (5 one time and 7 the other) that I stopped the service. I felt like my "style quiz" and "note to styler" message were not being read or taken into consideration. I don't like spending money on items that are not versatile. I like to be able to go into my closet and see what I can and can't pair with something and be done with it. I usually don't have the time to be trying outfits on over and over because one piece is too unique.
What is Stitch Fix?
If you don't know what Stitch Fix is, it is an online clothing store and personal styling service. For a $20 styling fee (which is taken out of your bank account when your Fix ships), you can have five personally selected pieces shipped right to your door. These pieces are selected by your personal stylist, who carefully reviews a "style profile" that you create. The $20 will be credited towards whatever pieces you decided to keep from your Fix. Things that you don't want are placed in a pre-paid mailer and sent back. If you end up wanting to keep all of your items, the $20 styling fee will go towards your end total as will a 25% discount.
Item 3: RETURNED
3: Gilli Haven Textured Knit Dress $64
I am SO upset that this has polka dots on it. I hate polka dots. I think they are extremely juvenile however, this was the best fitting and most comfortable dress I have ever put on! I wish more than anything that it was a different print or solid color!
Item 4: KEPT
4: Papermoon Etsie Textured Knit Dress $74
The color, cut, and style of this dress is just everything to me! I do want to get it hemmed a bit though because I do not like to wear dresses that cut at or below my knees.
Item 5: RETURNED
5: Octavia Jolene Zipper Flap Crossbody $48
I did really enjoy the color of this bag but, it isn't super practical and the price was too high for me.
Lynn was my stylist and I have to say, I am still not impressed. She claimed that the polka dot dress was an easy to style "neutral dress"...what about blatant polka dots is neutral?? Everything else was sub par in my opinion other than the Cobalt blue dress I am keeping. One box down, eleven to go for Stitch Fix to prove me wrong!
