WIWW - Stitch Fix Review #5


I've been really looking forward to writing this Stitch Fix review!  After my last Fix was such a disaster, I scheduled this one nearly immediately.  I didn't want to waste any time with giving another stylist a chance to knock my socks off.

(P.S.  If you're reading this and wondering what the heck this whole Stitch Fix thing is that I'm talking about, I invite you to check out my previous reviews for the more detailed run-down.)

Super Quick Recap of Stitch Fix:
  • Sign up and get on the Waiting List (this usually moves pretty quickly)
  • Fill out your detailed Style Profile
  • Schedule your first "Fix"
  • Pay your $20 styling fee and wait for the goodies to arrive on your doorstep
  • Receive a box full of items hand-picked by a personal stylist, just for you, based on your profile
  • Try everything on, keep what you want, send back what you don't. (The $20 styling fee comes off the price of anything you choose to keep and if you buy all 5 items, you get a 25% discount!)
I knew as soon as I opened this box that my feedback had been considered and that this Fix was going to be far more enjoyable!


The specific dress I requested was out of stock at the time of my shipment, but my stylist sent me two others ones in the hopes that they would work for the bridal shower I was attending soon or for my anniversary date.  Yes, my stylist did mention all these things on my styling sheet - proof she did her homework!

This striped dress was super cute and definitely a bit out of my usual comfort zone!  And who doesn't love an included belt?  It was like a bonus accessory!


It actually looked pretty cute on too!  The shoulders were a teeny bit of a tight fit and the length of the skirt was a little shorter than I usually wear, but the shape was really quite flattering.


Oh, this tank.  Teal and stripes are a couple of my favorite things in this world, so this top was a bullseye.


It was just the teeniest bit too big though!  The arms were pretty loose so you got a good eyeful of my bra from the side view.  Plus, I thought forty bucks was a little steep for this top.


The second dress was very different than the first one, but I liked it a lot!


It was comfortable, flattering, and can we please talk about the color?  So pretty!  See my little photobomber in his bike helmet?  Classic.


I wish you could touch this top.  It was so soft and the stitching detail on it was quite lovely.


The color was flattering and I liked the fit for the most part.  It did hug a little tighter than I would ideally like in a couple of my trouble spots, but overall I could totally see myself wearing this top.


My accessory this time was this gorgeous teal bib necklace that played very nicely with the lovely coral top.  These colors are a big trend right now for good reason, folks.

So what did I decide to keep?  It was a very fun challenge this time to have several items that I wanted to keep!


But that green dotted dress was calling my name something fierce, so she had to stay home with me.  I sense this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship!

Ready to give Stitch Fix a try?  I have really enjoyed using this styling service as a way to mix things up in the wardrobe department.  It's so fun to see what my stylist has chosen!  My favorite part is that it is NOT a subscription service where you are charged every month.  You can get one Fix and be done or not get another one for several months if you choose.  Or....you can choose to get a box of goodies every month.  It's your call!  CLICK HERE to get started!

  3. I really need to give Stitch Fix another try. I used them twice this winter but kept getting sent the same things I already owned. I love that first dress!

  4. These items look great on you; thank you for the pictures of the styling ideas from stitch fix. Definitely something I will consider doing in the future (and I will use your link if I do).

    I agree on keeping the dress that you kept; I liked the stripes on you, but it was only "nice" and not great. Meanwhile, the dress you kept was great!

  5. I googled "Stitch Fix reviews" and came across your blog, and I'm so glad I did! I enjoyed your objective reviews of Stitch Fix, and how you modeled the items. I'm looking forward to reading all your other posts as well.

    I think you made the right choice with the green dotted dress. Its an adorable little dress, and looks great on you.
