My Stitchfix Review: Summertime!
My latest Stitchfix package came in the mail this week and I’m excited to share what I got with you. I got a fix last month, but I didn’t post about it. Boo, I know. I sorry. I have forgotten how much you all enjoy reading about them. But I hope my Stitchfix July review makes up for it!
For those of you who are not familiar with Stitchfix, it is a try on at home delivery service where you fill out an extensive 80 question quiz to understand your fashion and clothing style, how much you want to pay for certain items, and what you are looking for. Then for a $20 styling fee they send you 5 items. If you like all 5, you can get 25% off your entire order. Or just keep what you like and send back what you don’t. Your $20 styling fee is applied to your order so you are incentivized to at least keep something. I LOVE this service and have been using it for over 8 months now. This was my 9th fix. According to the person who runs the Stitchfix Twitter, I am one of their most loyal customers. Woo hoo!
This month I told the folks at Stitchfix that I wanted some bright, fun clothes for summer. Here’s how my items arrived when I opened the box from Stitchfix:
This was super cute and immediately I wondered if I got a red dress. I remember getting a red dress with a tie strap in one of my previous fixes.
The first item I opened up was this silver necklace:
I liked it, but I decided I didn’t really need another necklace. I put this in the maybe pile.
Stitchfix is really cool because they give you these cards with each item to give you an idea of how you can style an outfit using the item. I am fashion challenged so this is particularly helpful for me. I hope they make these digitized in the future. Here are examples of two of the cards I got:
Here is a picture of me in the Zip Tank:
I liked this tank top because it was different, but I felt like it was a bit too frumpy looking on me.
And here is a picture of me in the red wrap dress:
When I tried on this dress I didn’t love the way it looked on me. It actually looks better in the picture than it did in person.
I also received this denim dress:
This was a very different look for me. I would never get a denim shirt like this let alone a dress. This dress was frumpy to the max. It immediately went into the return pile. But it was fun to try on!
The last item I tried on was this blue and white patterned top:
I liked the way this top looked and decided to keep it. The picture doesn’t do it justice – it does look better in person. I plan on wearing it with white pants. Not sure it goes with the pants I’m wearing in the picture.
So what did I end up picking?
I really liked everything but the denim dress. I decided to keep the blue printed top and return the remaining items. Now looking back on this post I wish I would have kept the red dress too, but I don’t have anything coming up where I could foresee wearing it so I decided not to get it. Oh well, there’s always next time!
