Stitch Fix Review #1

A couple months ago I ordered my first stitch fix. I know. I’m just getting around to posting. 🙁

The way Stitch Fix works is you can order a fix one at a time or monthly. For each fix you pay a $20 styling fee. This fee is applied to your purchase. So if you choose to keep a $40 top you only pay an additional $20. If you choose not to keep anything, you don’t get the fee back.  You get 5 items with each fix sent directly to your home. You get 3 days to try everything on. Keep what you want and sent back what you don’t in the postage paid envelope provided.

I was super excited when I got my first fix. Everything is all wrapped up nicely with a letter from your stylist.

You also get a packing slip that tells you how much everything costs.

If you keep everything you get a 25% discount. I did have a little bit of sticker shock at the prices. I had specified to make everything as inexpensive as possible. I don’t usually spend this much on a single item of clothing (I know. I’m cheap and I’m poor.)

The first item I tried was this navy shirt with orange zig zags. (I apologize in advance for the quality of photos. They are all taken in a mirror.) $48

Here is the styling card that come with each item.

I like the way this shirt fit, but I had specifically said no orange on my profile. I really hate orange.

I wasn’t impressed so far. Moving on.

There was this really cute white shirt. I liked this shirt a lot. It was quite sheer so it needs a camisole underneath. This fit perfectly with what I had asked the stylist for which is clothes that would work for the office and home. $58

Then there was this red wrap dress. Which was awesome. Until I sat down. The split went up way too high for my comfort. $68

One of the pieces included was a god and red necklace. $34

Which is pretty cool, except I never wear gold. There wasn’t an option on the profile for no gold. The only option was mostly silver.

The final item was this jacket, which is a jersey material. $68

I’m not normally a jacket person. I’m usually a sweater person, but this was a very soft material.

Overall, I like 3/5 items in the fix. What I like about Stitch Fix is that I can let my stylist know why I didn’t like certain things like the gold and orange. You can even request certain items. If you have a Christmas party to go to but no time to shop, order a fix, specify you want a dress for the party, and then the clothes come to you.

If I could afford to, I would probably order fixes monthly. This fix was a bit out of my price range. Next time I order I will ask for less expensive clothes and see what happens.

I did end up keeping one item from this fix. The jacket!
