I just LOVE StitchFix!
I’ve been getting boxes for more than a year now- I think I got my first box around when I started my “new job” (coming up on 2years!). I’ve included it in our household budget to get a new box every 2 months. It’s fun for me (shopping without leaving the house), and Bill really loves the little fashion show and choosing what we keep. It’s like having a slightly more adventurous friend deliver what they think you’ll love, with no real commitment.
If you haven’t heard of it, StitchFix is one of those ubiquitous subscription box services that are everywhere these days. After filling out a style profile, you pay a $20 fee and receive a box with five clothing and accessory items in the mail. You can subscribe to these as often as you’d like, or get boxes on demand. If you purchase an item, your $20 fee goes as a credit towards the item’s cost, but if you don’t choose to keep any items – you’re out $20. If you keep all 5 items, you get a 25% discount on the final cost!
I have my style profile linked to my Outfitables pinterest board, so I can really tailor what I’m looking for. So far, I’ve had a ton of hits!
Now that I’m trying to be a better blogger, I figured it was time for a StitchFix box review (plus you can help me make decisions). So, without any further ado… my August 2015 StitchFix box!
(Bill took all of these pictures on an iPhone, and I forgot to wear shoes, so please excuse any weird photography ;))
Leavenworth Sleeveless Top – Love it! Kept it! It’s light-weight, but sort of Fall-ish so it’s perfect for Fall. Works for office and casual time. This is just the kind of top I love getting from StitchFix 🙂
Zio Colorblock Mixed Material Tee – Let me be honest, this is the most comfortable shirt of all time – like the best jersey knit ever. Unfortunately, it’s not gonna work for work, and I couldn’t imagine playing $40+ for what was really a comfy sleepshirt. So, back it went…
Phelan Abstract Chevron Print Short-Sleeve Blouse – I so badly wanted to like this top – it would be great for the office – but the weird sleeves, puffy shoulders, and lack of tailoring killed it for me. Plus, it was about $20 more than the other tops. Ah well, it was a very good try!
Earlson Split Neck Blouse – This was another, really close almost top, but Bill talked me out of it. The colors and pattern wound up just being too loud for me, even though I loved the cut and fabric.
Dafne Chevron Maxi Dress – True life: I’d never tried a maxi dress before! I always figured the length would make my shortness even shorter, plus it would cover up my skinny legs 😉 But I LOVED this dress… for the most part. The chevron was great, the fabric and cut were really comfortable, and it made me look 11 feet tall! But, it emphasized my chest a bit too much, and it was nearly $90 – too much for a jersey dress I don’t think I could pull off
Overall, I think this was a pretty good box, even though I only kept one top. What do you think? Did I send back anything I should’ve kept?
I often use StitchFix to bulk up my work wardrobe (since I get almost everything else I wear from Target, Ann Taylor, Banana Republic and LOFT clearance) and this box was in the right wheelhouse for the most part. I also like that it makes me try fashion I never would’ve tried on my own – the maxi dress for instance! Now, I’ll keep my eye on the summer clearance sales to find a (much) cheaper option that’s the same sort of flattering.
