About two weeks ago when I was browsing online I came across Stitch Fix and found their personal styling feature so interesting! I did want to step up my style a little bit since I always feel clothing + shopping are my biggest struggles. I decided to go ahead and give Stitch Fix a try! If you have never heard of Stitch Fix it is an online styling service that delivers a truly personalized shopping experience, just for you. Fill out your Style Profile and a personal stylist will hand pick pieces to fit your tastes, needs and budget—and mail them directly to your door. Each box contains five items of clothing, shoes and accessories for you to try on at home. Keep what you love, send the rest back in a prepaid USPS envelope. Shipping and returns are free—even for exchanges! I couldn’t be more excited to receive my first Stitch Fix because c’mon who doesn’t like to try on clothes in the comfort of their own home?!
My Style Profile:
They asked you all necessary information to style you properly. Like your height, weight, all you’re sizing your jeans, shirts, etc. They asked you about your proportions of your body, and even down to the fit and cut on how you like your clothing. They show you a bunch of already put together styles and ask you what you think of them, and even ask what stores you shop at. Now for the most important part of them all…PRICE…I made sure to click on the cheaper the better in terms of price when it came to the clothing my stylist was going to pick out for me. They did have different price ranges $50-100, and so on but because I have a bills + a budget so I know I couldn’t spend too much! So everything and everything below $50 would have been ok!
My first Stitch Fix was set to be delivered on Oct 2nd and I couldn’t wait to come home from work to open this box and to see what I have received inside!
So this is what it looked liked inside. All the clothes were wrapped up nicely on the right hand side of the box and everything else was to the left. On the left we had the pre-paid postage with a USPS bag to send back whatever you didn’t want, a welcome note, and a style design booklet on how to style your different outfits.
Now lets get into the clothing! (PS. Just came from the gym don’t mind the gym attire & sweaty look! LOL)
Cotton Emporium Delia Tie Front Pull Over Sweater $40
When I first seen this sweater I just fell in love!! Love the way it fit, loved the tie front, and the color. I was shocked on how perfect my stylist Megan got my taste for fall. I actually didn’t know any of the prices until the very end of this fix.
Hawthorn Sharon Thumb Hole Detail Pull Over $78
Next I tried on this thumb hole pull over turtle neck sweater. I absolutely love these kind of sweaters and I don’t own any either! I loved the way this one looked on me, and how it felt (not itchy, thank god!). But the price $78?! This was just insane to me! I did try to go online and try to find a similar sweater for cheaper, but my luck ran short. I couldn’t find a similar sweater for the life of me! So I decided last night I was going to try to exchange the sweater I already purchased (above) for this one instead. As of this afternoon I was successful.
Vigoss Bryleigh Distressed Frayed Hem Crop Skinny Jeans $68
NEVER EVER, EVER in my life have I ever spent $68 on a single pair of jeans, and I wasn’t about to start! Also, if I’m not mistaken Vigoss isn’t a big name brand where jeans should cost this much and to reassure myself I actually looked at their other jeans online which range from $20-$40. This was a red flag for me! Is Stitch Fix trying to scam us by doubling the price of clothing? UH OHHH!
Vera Moda Sydney Puffer Vest $68
Another item I have never owned in my life! A cute puffer vest!! I am so in love with this vest but I can’t imagine blowing $68 on something I’m not going to be able to wear much longer. Unfortunately I am returning this one! I did do my research and found that Vero Moda puffer vests (which they like to call them waistcoats) are no more than $42. So this was another red flag for me!! On the plus side Old Navy carries the same exact vest for only $34 so I will be ordering that one instead!
Lush Debbie Cross Front Blouse $46
I loved the cross front but I was not too much of a fan of the fit. It seemed really short at the waistline for my liking especially when you have a long torso. I was also not really a big fan of the floral so I was going to have to skip on this one! This is another shirt that I found to be way over priced when comparing to their items on other various websites like Nordstrom + Nordstrom Rack.
As much as I loved how my stylist Megan dressed me and picked out awesome things for me she was not too self-conscious of my budget. I stated “the cheaper the better” for a reason. After, sitting down and doing my own research on some of these items and what the true price point should be I’m quite disappointed. I already left my stylist a note on how I felt about pricing, and hopefully my next Stitch Fix will be different. I do plan on trying this one last time before throwing in the towel completely.
I would love to know if any of you guys have ever tried Stitch Fix before, and if so what was your experience with them?!
