My StitchFix Box Review
Time for my latest Stitch Fix Review! This was Fix #11 for me. Yep, I’ve been a Stitchfix member for over a year now. Love this service. 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 so they can 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 to try on at home. 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.
This month I asked my Stitchfix stylist to send me some dresses that I might be able to wear for holiday parties. I always dread going to the mall trying on loads of dresses during peak shopping season so trying on dresses at home is way more my style.
My fix came with a lovely handwritten note from my stylist. This was the first time I’ve received something like this. Nice job, Stitchfix. Nice job. I like the personal touch.
I received three holiday dresses to try on in my fix. The first was this 41 Hawthorn (Stitchfix’s house label) dress called the CAPITOLA FIT & FLARE TANK DRESS:
I liked this dress, but I didn’t LOVE it. And I like to LOVE clothes when I buy them. Otherwise, what’s the point?
The second item in my Stitchfix box was this ROCCO 3/4 SLEEVE FAUX WRAP DRESS. It was a pretty dark red and I wanted to love this dress because it is the perfect color for holiday parties. Unfortunately it did not fit my body shape too well and made me look frumpy!
The third dress I tried on was CARRIE POLKA DOT FIT & FLARE DRESS. I liked the print, but also found it to look too frumpy on me. Wah.
The fourth item was something different – it was called the MICHAEL FAUX LEATHER JACKET. I tried this jacket on and I really liked it! I think I really liked it because I don’t have anything like it in my wardrobe.
And the 5th item I tried on was this BENFIELD HEATHERED DRAPE FRONT CARDIGAN. I have a lot of cardigans like this, but I was drawn to this one because of the print on the front.
So, what did I end up getting? Well, sadly none of the three holiday dresses I tried worked out. I did end up getting the faux leather jacket and the cardigan. I am looking forward to my new purchases. Two out of five on this fix, but I was 5 for 5 on my last Stitch Fix Review from September 2013 so it’s all good 🙂
