Service Review: Stitch Fix

I've been debating trying out Stitch Fix for what feels like forever. I have a hard time getting behind paying a monthly fee for a personal stylist who doesn't know how picky I am, and paying for whatever items I choose that are probably a lot more than I'm actually willing to pay.

One of my co-workers was talking about how she uses the service and loves it, so I finally decided to give in and give it a try. Worst case scenario, I would just return all the items if I absolutely hated them and be out $20, but would get to blog about the experience (the blog part is my bright side reasoning for any new thing I try, tbh).

I signed up on a Monday, and my first "Fix" arrived exactly one week later.

The first thing I saw upon opening the box was an envelope with a welcome letter, instructions on how to proceed, and a style guide with the items picked for me and how the stylist thought I might be able to wear them. I obviously began trying things on right away, because I have zero patience.

Item #1

Siren Tie Neck Tulip Sleeve Blouse from Fun2Fun

I liked the idea behind this. My stylist chose it because I told her I wanted to try the boho chic look. It was a good idea, just didn't fit the way I would want it to.

Item #2

Melanie Knit Tunic Blazer from FrenchMauve

I. LOVED. THIS. The only parts I didn't like were the panel at the bottom and the material. Because of that, I couldn't get behind spending $88 on the blazer.

Item #3

Kay Skinny Jean from Liverpool

Upon trying these on, I promptly wore them around my house for the rest of the evening. These fit like they were specifically designed for me and I am still in shock. I have the hardest time finding jeans that fit me. They were a little pricey at $88 but I'm always willing to pay more for pants because I get more wear out of them and hardly ever get new jeans because I can't find them like I mentioned.

Item #4

Lavian Mesh Hem Scoop Neck Knit Top from Laila Jayde

Not gonna lie, I was not a fan of this. Didn't fit right, was a weird material for a shirt, and I was not feeling the pattern or color scheme.

Item #5

Ilyssa Heel from MIA

I discovered that I am not a fan of the kitten heel. Oh well! Cute pattern though.

The winner(s) that I kept: jeans from Liverpool!

Okay, so. Here are the deets, friends.

Right off the bat, Stitch Fix is a flat $20 monthly fee.

You pay for all the items you end up keeping from your box, but the $20 monthly fee gets subtracted from the total cost of whatever you keep (and you get an extra discount if you buy all the items in your box).

So, for example: the jeans I loved and ended up keeping were $88. Add tax (approx. $7 for me) to get $95, and then subtract the $20 fee for the grand total of what you would pay. I ended up paying $75 for the jeans and I'm okay with that. A little more than I'm used to ($50 jeans from American Eagle), but I have a hard time finding pants that fit in all the right places so I had to jump on these!

You also have the option to exchange, which I haven't tried but I'm assuming it's for when you need a different size.

You can also choose to get boxes less or more frequently!

Would I do it again?

Absolutely! I'm trying to use this as a way to stop being a shopaholic. Hopefully the box will be the only shopping I do every month.

What a fun way to add some new pieces to your wardrobe every so often!

Let me know if you try it out and what ya get!
