Hey y’all! Happy Friday! I am currently traveling to see some friends and their kids but I knew I need to write while I was going since I truly have been sucking at it lately. I am even going to write while I am out here because they are more like family than friends. Today we are discussing my thoughts an opinions on the subscription service Stitch Fix.
What is Stitch Fix?
According to the website, they say they are “for busy women on the go, Stitch Fix is the personal styling service tailored to your taste, budget and lifestyle that helps you look and feel your best every day.” Essentially they are a subscription service that a “stylist” reviews your answers to questions and send you five different pieces of clothes. It can be anything including shoes and accessories. Once you receive your fix, you have to go back online and let them know exactly how you felt about the stuff they sent you. You can’t lie because it affects your next “fix.” You can create a Pinterest board with clothes that you liked to give the stylist an better idea of what you like as a client.
Stitch Fix is $20 every time you ask for a “fix.” They can be as frequent as every two weeks or as spaced out as you would like. Currently I am “fixing” once a month to see how well they do. After the $20 stylist fee, the clothes cost you whatever they are marked minus the $20.
Now, lets get into the nitty gritty of my fix. I was sent a scarf, a dress, a racerback tank, a shirt and a pair of skinny jeans.
It comes with cards to help you “style” yourself. Truth be told, I wanted some of the other things pictured with the outfits. Lol.
Scarf – Abbot Border Print Infinity Scarf
The scarf came with this card on how to wear it because it was an infinity scarf. I appreciated that tremendously because I have no idea how to style an infinity scarf. Had it been another pattern I might have kept it but sadly, I didn’t care for the pattern.
This scarf was $28. Which is a little pricey. Maybe if I LOVED the pattern I would have been able to justify the price but nope.
Shirt – Walworth Roll Sleeve Knit Top
This is the card that came with the shirt and I really liked the shoes in both outfit. I also liked the jeans too but they weren’t sent to me. Lol.
The grey is the front and the burgundy is the back. I really loved this shirt and it was the only thing I kept out of the whole fix. It is a mix of jersey and cotton. I loved the way this fit. It was $48. Which is a little pricey but I also didn’t want to lose out on my $20 fee.
Dress – Celia Dress
Again, I really liked the way they styled it more than what was sent to me. I know, I am weird. Lol.
The back of the dress has the zipper all the way down the back and the front has fake zippers for pockets. It is a navy color, which unfortunately is not coming across in the pictures. Sorry. This dress was $68 and I was highly considering keeping it. I would have probably kept it more if it was during the year because I could use it for work. But since it was summer, I didn’t feel this was a summery enough dress for me and the money.
Skinny Jeans – Tory Distressed Ankle Zip Skinny Jean
I SO badly wanted the two shirts the were styled with these jeans. I loved, loved, loved the red tank.
These jeans were a dark and skinny. I really liked the look and the feel but the fit. Oh, the fit. So, not good. They were listed as a size 14, but they were definitely not true to size. They had no give whatsoever. They were also $88! I do not pay that much money for jeans. The most I have ever spent on a pair of jeans were about $60. So, even if I loved them, I would have had a HARD time justifying them.
Racerback Tank – Lazi Racerback Knit Top
I loved the white jeans that were stayed with them. I absolutely loved the way this outfit was styled and wish I would have loved the top just as much.
This was a double layered racerback tank top that was way too hot for Florida summers. It was super cute but I would be dying of heatstroke in this top. Plus it was $48! Who the hell pays that much money for a racerback tank.
It wasn’t a bad experience and I have decided to do it again to see how it goes. The total cost of the clothes would have been $280 for 5 items, which is a little pricey for off the wall brands. If you buy all 5 pieces you get a discount and mine would have been $70 and you also have to minus your styling fee. So, base price if I had done all that would have been $190, which to me is still a little pricey for clothes. Don’t get me wrong, I will pay that much for clothes but they need to be really well made and they need to be something that I absolutely have fallen in love with.
I would recommend trying it out if you are curious about it. I had been thinking it over for about 3-4 months before I finally took the plunge and I was happy about it. If you want to try it, heres the link for you to look it over and see for yourself.Click here -> Stitch Fix
Have a wonderful weekend y’all!
