Stitch Fix Review- May 2016

Yikes, time is flying by, and May is almost over.  I have been super busy with work and kiddos.  I know, excuses, excuses… Anyhow, I can not let May go by without my May’s Stitch Fix review.  Again this month, I loved all the pieces, my stylist, Kimberly picked out for me.  She is really doing a great job.

If you are a Stitch Fix newbie here is how it works:

  •  Sign up via the app or go directly to the Stitch Fix siteon your desktop.
  •   I completed a style quiz and answered detailed information like my size, height, occupation, how often I dress up for events and my favorite brands of clothing. To complete my style profile, I uploaded myPinterest board Fashionista.
  •  I scheduled the Stitch Fix box to arrive based on my time frame. I am currently signed up to receive a Stitch Fix box monthly.  You can sign up to receive a box yearly, quarterly, monthly or weekly.  It is all based on your preference.

Cost of Stitch Fix

  • There is an initial $20.00 styling fee. The $20.00 is applied to purchase.
  • If you do not keep any of your Stitch Fix pieces you will not be refunded your $20.00.
  • Shipping is FREE. My favorite four letter word.

Let’s get to it-

Le Sample// Gloria Hi-Lo Blouse (above)- This tank is great for work or a weekend outing.  I knew this tank would look great with the white pants Kim sent me in a previous fix. Of course, I kept the blouse.

Margaret M//Emer Printed Straight Let Pant(above)- paired with the Gloria Hi-Lo Blouse, per Kimberly’s suggestion- the print is fun, the color is fun and over all I am a fun person so I kept the pants.

Fun2Fun//Walden V-Neck Blouse (below)- It is the perfect blouse for a skirt or jeans.  I love the small v-neck collar.  Again, I could not help myself so I kept this blouse.  On a side note I am not sure why I am pushing my chest out. What a weird pose.

 

Pixley//Panorama Henley Blouse (below)- I had to send something back, otherwise I would put us the poor house.  This blouse got sent back, not because I did not like it but, because it reminded me of a picnic table cloth.

Dolce Vita//Ross Suede Wedge (below) This was my first pair of Stitch Fix shoes.  I was  excited about getting the shoes.  After trying them on, I decided they were not a look for me or my feet. I just did not feel like I could pull that wedge look off.  Plus my husband doesn’t like me wearing anything that would make me taller than he is (which is anything other than a flat or flops).

Since signing up with Stitch Fix and Trunk Club I am most certainly one overdressed mom on the field hockey sidelines. Who cares, I love all my new looks and styles.

Let me know what you think.

Stitch Fix Review #1

I recently have heard and read a lot about Stitch Fix. The reviews prompted me to try it out. My friend Brittany who currently uses Stitch Fix sent me a referral code and I signed up immediately.  Stitch Fix, like Trunk Club, is an online personal styling service. You can read my review about Trunk Club here.

Scheduled the Stitch Fix box to arrive based on my time frame. I am currently signed up to receive a Stitch Fix box monthly.  You can sign up to receive a box yearly, quarterly, monthly or weekly.  It is all based on your preference.

You will have no idea what is in your box until it arrives. For a control freak, like me, this was nerve wrecking. I always like to be in the know. I had high hopes that the stylist would get me and my style.

Cost of Stitch Fix

There is an initial $20.00 styling fee. Before you freak out amount spending money, the $20.00 is applied to any piece(s) that you keep.

A Disclaimer: if you do not keep any of your Stitch Fix pieces you will not be refunded your $20.00. Shipping is FREE. My favorite four letter word.

To my surprise, my Stitch Fix box arrived early. Yippee!

Kut From The Kloth cropped pants//Alice Blue Gower Peplum Blouse

I kept the cropped pants.  I did not like the shirt. The shirt made me look pregnant.

SF2

41Hawthorn Cordoba Elbow Patch Blazer

I really do not like coats or blazers.  It could be 32 degrees outside and I will forgo a coat.  The blazer went back.

SF1

41Hawthorn Sloane Colorblock                     A-Line Ponte Shift Dress

I really loved this dress but I have currently have two navy dresses.  I just could not justify keeping another navy dress needless to say, the dress went back.

SF4

Street Level Parvin Suede Detail Tote

I absolutely hated this bag.  This bag was sent back.

To some, this Stitch Fix box was unsuccessful.  I do not feel this way at all.  I was able to purchase cute cropped pants, and I did not have to go out to the mall looking for clothes.
