My First Stitch Fix Review

Have you heard of Stitch Fix? It’s an online personal shopping service and it’s AMAZING!

How it works:

1. Go online to Stitch Fix (Link Here!)
2. Fill out your style profile. They give you lots of style pictures, fit options and price options
3. Schedule your fix! Each Fix costs $20 and you will receive 5 items in the mail. That $20 goes towards whatever you choose to keep from your Fix and if you love everything in the box, you get 25% off the entire price in addition!
4. Try everything on. I love that I can try on the pieces on with clothes and jewelry I already own. HUGE benefit over shopping in the store! You can make sure the dress isn’t too short when you have heels on, you can try on 4 different cardigans to make sure the colors match and the lighting is generally better than an icky dressing room.
5. Send what you don’t want back. Shipping is free both ways, all you do to return it is put the items in the enclosed bag and pop it in the mailbox! So easy.
6. Go online and review your items. This is one of my very favorite aspects of this service, go online and tell your stylist exactly what you thought of each piece (Whether you kept it or not). The more Fix’s you get, the more tailored it is to your style, taste and size.
7. Tell all your friends! Every time you refer someone to Stitch Fix, you receive a $25 credit, how awesome is that?

This is technically my 2nd Fix. I got my first one last summer and it was just meh. I didn’t fill out my style profile very well and didn’t give it a second chance until now. So, I’m treating this like my first one and here’s what I got!

First off, a cute little note from my stylist along with outfit ideas for each piece. SO helpful!

Collective Concepts Esten Button-Up Sleeveless Blouse $54 Okay. I love this top! It fit perfectly and the material was super light but not sheer. I love this cut for a blouse, maybe that’s why I already have about 4 others just like it…but I needed this color. Result: Kept
41Hawthorn Flora Striped Fit & Flare Skirt $48 I wasn’t sure about this one when I first pulled it out of the box. But once I tried it on with a few different things I really loved it! I think it makes for a very professional post-grad outfit! Maybe if I dress like a grown up, I’ll be prepared for the real world?
Result: debated for a while but — kept!

Moon Collection Dannon Lace Detail Floral Print Dress $68: Beautiful, just my style and completely perfect for spring! Result: Kept
Pomelo Freddy Sleeveless Chiffon Dress $58: I love this color and cut! This type of dress is so comfortable for me. It can be dressed up or down and can be worn straight through spring and summer, which I love! Result: Kept
Century Pop Color Double Chain Necklace $32: To be honest, I probably wouldn’t actually wear this necklace with this dress but I just wanted to show that I got it. It’s super cute and simple and goes with so many tops I have. I’m not a huge jewelry person, I’ll wear the same pieces over and over with different outfits so I cling to simple, classic pieces. Result: Kept

Note: I tried all of these on with some nude J. Crew wedges from a few seasons ago…you can’t see my feet but I thought you should know.

Overall: LOVED this Fix! I specifically told them I needed some nicer things for bridal showers, weddings, graduation, etc. And they delivered! If you noticed, I kept everything and got 25% off, which is awesome.

What I love about Stitch Fix:

I’m a college student in a super small central Texas city, the shopping options are VERY limited. If you want to work on your style, your best bet is a nice little road trip to Dallas or Austin. This service is fantastic because they send you things that you might not ever try on in the store but if you’re able to try it on with other things you own, it works a lot better! I originally heard about Stitch Fix through some mom-bloggers who didn’t have time to go shopping / didn’t want to take their small children, so it’s really convenient and perfect for lots of different people.
