Getting a Fix
A Stitch Fix that is. Haven’t heard of them? They’re one of the original clothing Subscription boxes available. I decided I’d give them a try and see if they were worth the hype.
First things first, I love the idea that it’s a surprise. We all need a little mystery in our life even if it’s just in the form of a clothes delivery. I also love that it’s delivered to your front door easy peasy- other than filling out a quick survey on what you like to wear, no work for you. If you decide to keep it all, you get a 25% discount but if it’s not love, they include a prepaid return envelope so you just send it back. Also, that $20 styling fee? It goes toward your purchase of that month’s fix. It’s basically a home try on service and as a busy mom, I can appreciate the convenience of that.
Now, for the good part: my first Fix. Opening the box was super exciting and I was thrilled to see it included shoes- booties at that- I’m super into booties right now. Another win was the pair of skinny jeans. I was also excited to see the mixed media shirt- in fact, I already own quite a few (some of which you’ll see next week during my series on leggings). The two other items I wasn’t so sure about: a gray shirt with loose fitting arms- I’ve never really understood that fashion trend. And, a puffy white vest. I don’t think I’ve ever in my life worn a vest but there’s nothing to lose in trying it.
So, here’s what. I love the jeans. They’re soft and so comfy- they fit like a glove and I’ve been looking for the perfect jeans (more about that coming soon). Those are a keeper for sure.
From there, the gray shirt was interesting. It’s outside my comfort zone so that was fun and I liked it a lot more than I thought I would. I haven’t decided if it will live in my closet, the fabric was so-so and I’m just not positive it would be a regular for me.
The blue shirt, which I thought I loved, didn’t hang exactly right and I already have quite a few like it in my closet, so I don’t feel like I really need it. I still think it’s pretty but maybe not a love.
The vest, oh boy, I’ll be honest- not me at all. I felt like a marshmallow. It was a little big anyway which is bound to happen when you find yourself kind of between sizes but, I didn’t like it so no need to find it in my size.
Let’s talk about the shoes. I love booties. I love the idea of mixing it up with a little color. Reality though? It’s just not functional. I loved the design. No zippers- that’s a new one- zippers seem to be all the rage right now, well and forever. The zipperless silhouette was fresh and they were very comfortable. I may have been more tempted to keep them if they had been in a neutral color. As it is, I think my closet can live without green shoes and I really didn’t need another pair of booties anyway.
So, that’s what I thought about Stitch Fix. It was a lot of fun. I for sure want to try it again. I enjoyed trying all the pieces especially since half of them were not things I’d normally pick out myself. Have you tried a Fix yet? It was fun and with only a $20 styling fee to lose, it’s worth a shot! Click here to get your Fix on the way.
I don’t have links for these since they all came from Stitch Fix. However, here’s a list of the brands. I did a quick search on the Level 99 jeans and Stitch Fix’s price was comparable or even a little less expensive than other websites.
Gray shirt: Laila Jayde
Blue Mixed Media Shirt: Le Lis
Vest: Market & Spruce
Jeans: Level 99, primrose
***As a part of the affiliate program with Stitch Fix my styling fee was waived, since I ended up buying the jeans it didn’t matter as that fee would have applied toward the purchase. All the opinions are my own, I was not compensated in any way for my review.***
I really want to give Stitch Fix a try soon! Maybe this summer. You’ll have to tell me more about their affiliate program 🙂
Stitch Fix was so much fun! The affiliate program is really simple- just email them and they’ll have you sign up with your blog for your first styling free of charge. I absolutely love these level 99 jeans- they’re like a second skin they’re so soft and fit so well.
Checking out Stitch Fix now – it sounds like so much fun! I agree on your summary of the items you got – I love the grey top, it actually looks really comfortable! I wouldn’t be a fan of the vest either, so good call. Plus skinny jeans are always a great investment!
Yes. I’ve worn these jeans several times now and they’re like a second skin! I absolutely love them. The gray shirt ended up going back but it was an interesting try. I liked it more than I thought I would!
What an awesome idea! I love this and the ability to try clothes you might not have otherwise. I actually think that grey top looked really nice on you! Wish we had this in Australia!
Yes! It was so much fun trying on things picked for me. Sometimes I get into a rut and end up with 5 of the same grey dress because that’s what I like right now. So getting to try on some different things was fun!
I have never tried Stitch Fix, but I just might give it a shot as I am now 3 months postpartum from my 4th baby. My body has been in such constant flux with all the babies that I have no idea how to dress myself anymore. It would be nice to have someone else pick some stuff out for me–especially when it’s shipped directly to my door!
Yes and there’s no commitment other than the $20 filing fee so it just feels very easy. I’ve found it very difficult to dress for the first year after baby normally because it’s so hard to commit to clothes when you’re not at your goal size. This baby, I’ve been really sick and went gluten free so I’ve needed a whole new wardrobe (that never happened before). That and committing to getting out of the yoga pants slump has been big. I can’t remember the last time I put on actual yoga pants! Leggings are still a staple though.
