A few weeks ago I got an email alerting me that I had earned more Stitch Fix credit through my referral link. I was excited to order another box and see what they would choose for me now that I’ve dropped quite a bit of weight this year. I adjusted my settings in my online profile and asked them to send me a box of things in new sizes. That part was a lot of fun!
If this is your first time hearing about Stitch Fix, they are a company that lets you work with a personal stylist and have her pick out clothes and accessories just for you, then they send you five pieces in the mail. Every box is like a present, it’s a surprise. You have a few days to try on the clothes, and whatever you don’t want you just stick in the self-addressed stamped envelope/bag they include and send them right back. There’s a $20 styling fee, but if you decide to keep something, that fee gets applied to the cost of your purchase.
It took me a few tries to get in a good groove, but now I usually love the pieces they send. Here’s what they sent me this time.
White Pants: Just Black, Ethan Split Hem Skinny Jean, size 6, $78
Floral Shirt: Alice Blue, Bushnell One Pocket Blouse, size L, $38
Denim Jacket: Just USA, Loula Denim Jacket, size XL, $68
I like these white pants. As you all know, I have struggled to wear white jeans for a while. I like that these have a lot of stretch and you can’t see through them. I think maybe they are supposed to be capri-length, but I’m short, so they come down to my ankles. Seventy-eight dollars is more than I would normally pay for one pair of casual pants, but I have a credit this time, so I’m not that worried about how much they cost.
The jacket was just waaaay too big. And I already have a denim jacket that fits.
The floral shirt was fine. I liked that even though it was thin, you could not see through it, and I liked that it had a pocket. But, like the jacket, it was too big on me. I think I may have forgotten to change my size setting for shirts and jackets.
The same white pants
Blue shirt: Hummingbird, Liara Knot Front knit top, size L, $32
Necklace: Berry Jewelry, Issy Mixed Layered Necklace, $34
The blue shirt was also too big for me, but I really liked it anyway. It was by far the most comfortable thing I tried on and it was something I would have picked out and bought for myself from a store. But because of that it is very similar to a few things I already own. Plus it seemed to wrinkle very easily.
I didn’t like this necklace at all. I’m not really a statement piece kind of girl and it was almost impossible to untangle when I took it out of the box to try on.
What I kept:
In the end, I only kept the pants. I returned all of the other pieces, but I’m sort of regretting not keeping the navy shirt. I might see if I can request it again in my next fix.
If you decide to try Stitch Fix, I’d love to hear how your experience goes!
