My First Stitch Fix
Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. Please see disclosure policy.
I received my first ever Stitch Fix! Yay! If you’ve never heard of Stitch Fix; it is a personal styling subscription. When you first sign up, you fill out a pretty lengthy survey on your preferences so your stylist can get an idea of the items you like.
You can schedule just one fix or sign up for an auto fix monthly, bi-monthly or every three months. You can also request certain items such as if you have a big event, or just want to try a particular item, and they will do their best to send it to you.
You pay a $20 styling fee, and that includes free shipping and free returns of the items you don’t keep.
You also get to deduct the $20 styling fee if you decide to keep any of the items and can receive a 25% discount if you decide to keep all the items. They also offer free exchanges such as if you like the top they sent but need to size up or down.
I love the whole idea of having a personal stylist pick out items. I mean, who wouldn’t, right?
I use to consider myself fairly stylish and always kept up on the trends. However, after having three kids in the past five years, and going from a working mom to a stay at home mom, my style has changed dramatically. Not only that, but I just don’t have the time that I use to. I still love to dress up and love doing my hair and makeup; it’s just not a daily thing like it once was.
Here are the items I received my first month
Included in the box were also a personalized note from the stylist, cards with styling suggestions, and an invoice that listed the price of each item.
I love the style cards and suggestions. My stylist also left a note offering styling suggestions. I had also requested a blanket scarf, and she said they didn’t have a blanket scarf I wanted, but they had a plaid infinity scarf she thought would be a great alternative. I love how they really try to customize the box and listen to what you like.
Hint: It’s also helpful to make a board on items related to your style on Pinterest. The stylist can then check your Pinterest board to get ideas of the types of items and styles you like.
A quick note about the pics: It was super windy and getting ready to storm, so we were trying to hurry, but at least you can get somewhat of an idea of how the clothes looked on. 🙂
Also, photo creds to my 5-year-old for taking most of the pics. I tried taking them myself, but that didn’t work out so well.
LOOK BY M #26134-760
Sammie Plaid Infinity Scarf
I was super excited to see the scarf! Although it isn’t the blanket scarf I wanted, it has the same look and feel that I was going for. I love the neutral and plaid colors and it’s the perfect length without bunching up too much at the neck!
Verdict: It’s a keeper!
Queensland Dolman Jersey Top – S
First of all, not to take away from the outfit, but am I the only one that has no idea what to do with my hands in pictures? I’m so used to taking pictures of my kids, or in pictures with other people, that when I’m by myself it just feels really awkward. Also, looking at this now, if I were to wear this out, I would probably pair it with my brown boots instead of the black ankle boots I have on.
The Dolman top fit perfect, and It’s totally my style. So much so, that I have 2 other tops like it that are almost identical. Although I like the fit of this one better, I just can’t justify buying another for $48
Verdict: Sent back
Martina Slub Knit Open Cardigan – S
I really like the length of this cardigan. I would have never picked this color, but I really like it especially for Fall.
I liked the color so much that I added a little darker lipstick to go with it. 🙂
Verdict: Sent back
I just wasn’t super committed to this for the price.
MARKET & SPRUCE #24934-488
Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Tee – S
The tee is super soft and I love the shorter length in front and longer in the back look. However, I went a little over budget on school supplies and clothes for the kids this month, so I won’t be keeping it, otherwise I probably would.
Verdict: sent back
Adorra Skinny Jean – 2
The jeans also fit great, but the darker wash I felt made my legs look too skinny. I’ve always been on the thinner side, but my legs are almost” birdlike”. 😉
Verdict: sent back
My Overall Thoughts
Overall, I loved my Stitch Fix experience! I feel like my stylist really understood my style. She gave me stylish but practical pieces that fit in well with my busy life as a mom. I was a little nervous that I would receive expensive pieces that weren’t “kid friendly”. I feel the pieces were also fairly reasonable in price.
I ended up only keeping the plaid infinity scarf, but in all honesty, I went into it only expecting to keep one or two things. I will definitely try Stitch Fix again in the future and will post again.
