Stitch Fix does it again! For those of you who are not familiar with Stitch Fix, see my first review for the complete review and description of how the service works. I was so pleased with my first Fix that I signed up for a second one on the spot. I was so pleased with my recent fix and I kept EVERYTHING this time! 🙂 If you’re considering adding new or different pieces to your wardrobe, I highly recommend checking it out. They also have gift cards you can purchase on-line making this a really easy and fun holiday gift for the fashionista in your life.
So, what is Stitch Fix?
Here’s a brief overview of the service below from my first review.
Stitch Fix is an on-line company who pretty much provides each client with their own personal stylist. You sign up and submit detailed notes about your style preferences, measurements, ideal price points, sizes, special requests, etc. and then they send you a box with 5 pieces based on your profile. You have 3 days to try on the clothes and decide if you want to keep or return. Each fix has a $20 styling fee and shipping is free both ways (yay!) If you buy any of the items, the $20 is applied to your purchase. If you love all of your items, you can purchase all five and also receive 25% off the entire order. Some veteran Stitch Fixers have said that even if you don’t like all of your picks, sometimes it ends up being cheaper to just buy all 5 pieces!
It’s important to know that they currently have inventory for women’s sizes 0-14. They’re a fairly new company and are hoping to offer more inventory at plus sizes/maternity in the future. You can send them your measurements and they will contact you if they don’t have enough inventory in your size.
Fix #2- The Goods
1. Collective Concepts, Melandry Button-Up Tab-Sleeve Blouse, $68.00
Collective Concepts is one of my favorite brands. I have a few blouses and dresses from them and they are all so colorful and fun! If you’re in the Houston area, check out Loop Boutique in Rice Village. They have a great selection and I find most of my Collective Concepts items there! So, where do I start? There are so many things to love about this top. (Please excuse the shaky photography. Brent and I are hoping Santa will bring us our first DLSR camera for Christmas, so that we can retire our iPhones.) I love this bright color! It’s definitely a mood brightener during the dreary winter months. It’s versatile and I would wear to work or out and I love that the sleeves can be longer or shorter (with adjustable tab). This price point is fair as all of my other Collective Concepts pieces have been priced similarly. I’m looking forward to wearing this with some fun accessories and skinny jeans.
2. Kensie, Joce Embroidered Dot Ankle Pant, $88.00
Here’s another case where I was pleasantly surprised. Stitch Fix lets you prioritize and request different types of items (e.g. pants, skirts, dresses, jewelry, sweaters, etc.). I’ve typically stayed away from asking for pants because I think pants are the hardest thing to fit for my body type when on-line shopping. When these showed up, I was thinking “Great, another pair of pants that probably aren’t going to fit!” I absolutely loved the pattern and texture of these pants, but was bummed about the possibility of them not fitting. Turns out, they fit in the waist and just need a little love at the tailor’s to get them taken in the leg! They were a little pricey for me, but I’m keeping them because I don’t have anything like it. I think they are still conservative enough for work, but are still whimsical enough for the holidays. The greatest part, though, is that these pants are totally machine washable! I’m no stranger at the dry cleaner’s but I always love it when I can wash something on my own. As you can see from the style card below, there are multiple ways to style these pants. Luckily, I have no shortage of cardigans, sweaters and tops that will work perfectly. Thanks, Stitch Fix, for sending me something I would have normally shied away from.
3. Eight Sixty Mikelle Jeweled Neckline Ponte Fit & Flare Dress, $108.00
Everyone needs a little sparkle for the holidays and I think this LBD by Eight Sixty dress fits the bill. I love the simple jeweled neckline and fun fit and flare style. It’s easy to dress up or down and so festive. I don’t have many clothes with bling, so I was really surprised that I liked it. I think keeping all the shine to one area keeps it tasteful.
4. Angie Hunter Graphic Print Belted Dress, $35.00
This dress was my favorite item in the whole fix and it also happened to be the least expensive! I love prints and I love black and white. I also love dresses with sleeves. It really is the perfect dress for me! I usually can’t wear dresses with the elastic brand cutting right across the waist, but I was overjoyed when it actually fit and flattered my midsection. Perfect with tights and boots or flats and sandals, I can easily transition this dress for all seasons. This dress was a no-brainer and I even wore it for my team’s holiday photo at work. Love, love, love…I just love it so much.
5. Angie Ingrid Striped Tank Dress, $68.00
I’m a sucker for stripes and I loved this dress so much. It was super comfortable and perfect for those casual Fridays or running errands on the weekend. I tried this on with some red cowboy boots and one of my favorite necklaces by Yelena’s Bijoux. So fun and easy to care for = keeping!
So there you have it; my second Stitch Fix was a success. Remember that if you purchase anything, your $20 stylist fee automatically goes towards the purchase. When you keep all five items, you get 25% off your entire order! Even if you don’t LOVE all five items, sometimes it just makes better sense to keep all 5 pieces and get a better deal.
If you like what you see and want to give it a try, you can sign up here. I have not been paid or received any benefits from Stitch Fix for this review. If you sign up through one of the links on this post, I will receive a sweet $25 credit to Stitch Fix when your fix ships. I hope you enjoy your experience as much as I have!
