It's Stitch Fix time again!
If you're not familiar with Stitch Fix, it's a really neat way to shop for clothes wherein you let someone else do just about all of the work for you. You schedule when you want your shipment, or "fix," and write a brief note describing what you might be looking for. Stitch Fix assigns you with a stylist who picks out five pieces they think will be just right for you based on your size and style preferences. When your fix ships, you're charged a $20.00 fee. Once it arrives, you have three days to try everything on and decide what to keep or send back. You're only charged for what you keep, and the $20.00 styling fee is credited toward the cost of your keepers. If you keep nothing, you're out your $20.00. If you keep everything, you get 25% off your total, less the $20.00. Best of all, you don't have to go shopping. You get unique, quality pieces delivered right to your door.
Sounds pretty sweet, right? If you think so, then consider signing up for your own fix. And, I'd love it if you sign up using my referral code: https://www.stitchfix.com/referral/4005981. If you sign up using my link, I get a $25.00 credit when your fix ships. Thanks in advance! I know you'll love it if you try it out. :)
This is my sixth fix and this time around I asked for white jeans, a classic denim jacket, and a dress or two for my nephew's baptism and summer weddings. I also asked to have the same stylist as last time, Anna.
My stylist definitely followed my requests! I had requested a denim jacket, white jeans, and a dress or two, each of which were in my fix. I also got two tops to mix and match with items from my fix. I could see directly how my stylist picked items for me based on my requests and on my Pinterest Board. Here's what I got in my fix this time:
41HAWTHORN Jace Chevron Print Dress
MAVI Kalie Distressed Denim Jacket
PIXLEY Miandra Embroidered Top
BRIXON IVY Priya Abstract Print Floral Knit Back Tank
MAVI Aiden Skinny Jean
Without further ado, let's take a look at some of the items and outfits I got!
Outfit One, featuring: MAVI Kalie Distressed Denim Jacket, PIXLEY Miandra Embroidered Top, and MAVI Aiden Skinny Jean.
Next, MAVI Kalie Distressed Denim Jacket. I really liked the color and sandblasting on this jacket. It's pretty much what I was looking for when I requested a denim jacket. The problem with this jacket is that it's just enough too small that it's not going to work. I can't even come close to buttoning it and it was too tight through the shoulders, even unbuttoned. This is nitpicky, but I also didn't like the collar construction. If it's not perfect, I don't keep it, so... VERDICT: RETURNED.
Third piece in this outfit, PIXLEY Miandra Embroidered Top. I knew I would like this item as soon as I peaked and looked ahead at what I'd be getting in my fix. I was not disappointed when it came in! I love anything cobalt or royal blue-- it's a flattering color on me, AND it's one of our school colors. I have a lot in my wardrobe already to wear with this top, and I could dress it up or down. The size is just right on me, too. VERDICT: DEFINITE KEEPER! I wore this shirt to school today with some gray capris, a yellow cardigan and gold jewelry. I love bright primary colors!
Next item: BRIXON IVY Priya Abstract Print Floral Knit Back Tank
41HAWTHORN Jace Chevron Print Dress
41HAWTHORN Jace Chevron Print Dress. I styled this dress with a red belt I already had, just to break it up a little and help define my waist. These photos aren't that bad, but the dress was actually pretty unflattering on me. The pleats made my hips look bigger than they are and my husband said I looked, "wide" and "frumpy." The dress was also too big through the armholes, and makes it look like I have uniboob. Just wasn't a winner all around. I did ask for a dress or two but this one just wasn't going to work.
Here's a close up of the fabric for the Jace Dress.
Overall, I kept two out of five items for about $80 spent. I'm really happy with my decisions on what to keep and what to send back. Again, I only keep what's PERFECT. What's the point of settling? Then you have a closet full of stuff that you never wear, and that's why I started doing Stitch Fix in the first place! Was my fix stylish, convenient, delightful, and fun? Absolutely! Did I love opening my box and trying everything on in the comfort of my own home? You bet. Did I feel like my stylist chose items that were curated for me? Definitely.
What did you think of my fix? What were your favorite pieces?
Here's the style cards and note that came with my fix.
I am planning on getting one more fix in May, then I'll probably take June and July off. Since I'm not in school those months, I don't have as much going on that I need nicer clothes for. I mostly wear t-shirts when I'm at home on the farm anyway. Then I can pick back up in August in time for back to school.
Thanks for reading, everyone! Don't forget to submit me some photos of places you love and/or are thankful for that I can use in an upcoming Thankful Thursday post! For more details on that, read my previous post! :)
