My First Stitch Fix Review! (March 2016)

Well, I did it.  I finally gave in and tried Stitch Fix.  My sister and several friends told me about the success they've had with getting clothes through Stitch Fix (and more about what a fun process it is) so I decided to give it a try and vowed to share and give an honest review here for anyone else who may be considering trying it out as well!  Reading through other bloggers stitch fix reviews is ultimately what convinced me to finally try this service, so I want to share the love as well!


If you don't know what Stitch Fix is yet,it's an online personal shopping service that provides you with a personal stylist who selects five clothing items and/or accessories based on information you provide, and ships them directly to your doorstep.  Then you get to try them all on, keep what you love, and send back what you don't in a prepaid return shipping bag that's provided for you.  The process could not be simpler.  It's so neat to see what someone else will select for you based on the information you provide them with about your body type and style.  You can also set your price point, link a Pinterest board so your stylist can get a better sense of your style, and you can even request specific items.  Your stylist will send you a sweet note about what she picked out for you, and handy little styling cards for how to style each piece!

It's simple to sign up (if you do decide to sign up I'd love for you to use my referral link so I can get a credit!).  There's a $20 styling fee, but that cost is applied to anything you purchase from your fix, so I went into this process with the thought that if I ended up getting just one item that I loved I would be happy.  (Bonus, if you keep all 5 items you get a 25% discount!)  Wondering how I made out?  Check below to see what I ended up keeping and what was sent back!

Kut From The Kloth: Maribel Distressed Straight Leg Jean
shoes (Target) // sweater (Loft)
Details:  I specifically requested a pair of distressed jeans and boy did my stylist, Kate, deliver!  I can honestly say I've never owned a pair of jeans that fit me so perfectly in all the right places.  These were an instant keeper!
Status: KEEP!

19 Cooper: Stevenson Ribbon Detail Blouse

watch // shoes (Target)
Details:  This was a beautiful navy tank, amazing quality, the fit was great, and it was super versatile so I knew I would wear it over and over again.  Bonus, my stylist picked up on my favorite color, navy!  I went back and forth with whether or not to keep this one but ultimately I felt the price was too high for a tank, so sadly, this one got sent back.  I left feedback for my stylist that I love the tank, just not the price.
Verdict: Return

41 Hawthorn: Lex Textured Knit Dress

watch // shoes
Details:  This dress was super cute, it's just wasn't a home run for me.  I have to say even for the items I returned, every single thing fit me perfectly, which just seemed so surprising considering when I shop for myself half the things I try on are either too large or too small.  Pretty impressive that someone who I've never met before was able to select 5 items that  literally fit like a glove!
Verdict: Return

41 Hawthorn: Litton Split Neck Blouse

watch // shoes // bracelet (similar)
watch // shoes // bracelet (similar) // pants (similar)
Details:  As soon as I saw this blouse I knew it would be a keeper.  I'm a big fan of black and white and an even bigger fan of polka dots!  This blouse is light and airy, can be dressed up or dressed down, and will work well for a variety of seasons, a definite keeper!
Verdict: KEEP!

 Gilli: Tahj Maxi Dress

watchbracelet (similar)
Details:  I specifically asked for a maxi dress and this was gorgeous, amazingly comfortable, actually fit my 5'0" frame, and hubs loved it on me (always a bonus!)  I just had one problem, the draping on the chest.  I wasn't sure exactly where it belonged, and I just felt like it was unflattering if it didn't lay just right.  Again though, the fit was perfect. Now looking at it again, I know I'm going to kick myself later for returning this one.
Status: Return

Final Thoughts: Overall I really loved 4 out of the 5 items that were sent to me, and ended up keeping two of the five.  Pretty great for my first fix and I have to say I'm super impressed with my stylist. The whole process was exciting and I can see how people get addicted! The verdict... if you've been on the fence about trying Stitch Fix, it's definitely worth it to test it out at least once, but be forewarned, you probably won't want to stop after one fix!

So what do you think?  Did I keep the right thing?  What would you have kept and sent back?  Let me know in the comments below, and remember to sign up to receive your own fix by using my referral code!
