Stitch Fix December 2013

Stitch Fix – December 2013 Review

After two great fixes, I was really excited to see what arrived on my door step for the month of December. As soon as I opened the box I knew that I was going to love some of the pieces. I love Stitch Fix because it is fun, easy and can be customized based on my own style.

WHAT IS STITCH FIX?

Stitch Fix reminds me of the personal stylists that they have at Nordstrom or similar stores, except I’ll never actually meet my stylist and all of the items are shipped directly to my door. When you sign up, they ask you to fill out a style profile, where you specify sizes, price ranges, shapes, styles and any colors or patterns that you prefer. You pick a date that you want your fix shipped and they send you a box of 5 clothing and accessory items hand-picked based on your style profile. You can schedule one delivery or sign up for automatic monthly deliveries. You pay a $20 styling fee for each box, which also includes delivery. The $20 styling fee is applied as a credit towards anything you keep from your box. If you purchase everything in your box, you receive 25% off the entire purchase.

THINGS I LOVE ABOUT STITCH FIX

  • Free shipping: (including return shipping) is included in the $20 styling fee.
  • No contract: You get it when you want it. You can sign up for monthly fixes or just schedule them when you want. I signed up for the monthly fixes so I automatically receive a fix every month.
  • You choose the price range: You can specify your desired price for each of the types of items. I am willing to pay higher prices for pieces of clothing than I am willing to pay for accessories so I specified this in my style profile.
  • My stylist listens to my comments and requests: I requested to receive work appropriate pieces in my fix each month. Every fix I have received at least two items that are work appropriate. In addition, you can request specific colors styles or types of items.
  • No pressure: With Stitch Fix, there is no sales associate standing outside the dressing room door. You try the items on in your own home and you have a few days to decide what to keep. Anything you don’t like you just send back.
  • It’s different: I love trying on pieces I wouldn’t have chosen for myself. I’ve received brands that I have never purchased before. And best of all, you don’t have to fight crowds or spend hours at the mall deciding what to buy.

MY THIRD STITCH FIX – DECEMBER 2013

So here is my third Stitch Fix box:

Here are the 5 items I received in my box:

(1) 41Hawthorn Filbert 3/4 Sleeve Popover Blouse – $58

I was so happy when I saw this blouse in my box. I LOVE the color and it is perfect for work or casual wear. I pretty much made up my mind that I was going to keep this blouse before I even tried it on.

(2) 41Hawthorn Walt Striped Skirt – $68

I really love that Stitch Fix sends me pieces that I wouldn’t normally try on myself. You never know what you are going to love. My stylist recommended that I try this skirt on with the fushia blouse tucked in. While the quality and fit were good, it wasn’t a style that I would wear. The skirt is too short for work and I don’t like horizontal stripes on my bottom half.

(3) Renee C Taber Foldover 3/4 Sleeve Sweater – $58

I love the color, fit and feel of this sweater. It was so comfortable that I could see myself lounging around in it on the weekends. The quality is very good and it is perfect for our Florida winters since it isn’t too heavy. I REALLY wanted to keep this sweater but I couldn’t get the foldover neck to stay in one place. As soon as I moved it came off of my shoulders and I just couldn’t get it to lay right.

(4) 41Hawthorn Benson 3/4 Ruched Sleeve Blazer – $78

I have a few blazers pinned on Pinterest since they are my typical work attire so I was excited to see that I received a blazer. This blazer can be dressed up for work or down for a more casual weekend look. I love the stripe detail on the sleeves. I buttoned the blazer in this picture so you can see the full look, but it looks fine unbuttoned as well.

(5) Bay to Baubles Loraine Triangle Lariat Necklace -$28

I have received a necklace in each of the boxes so far. They are all the same brand and similar styles. I felt that this necklace was too expensive and almost too dainty for my taste. I do like receiving necklaces since I wear one almost every day but this one didn’t work for me.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

MY OVERALL THOUGHTS

The winners from this box were #2 (41Hawthorn Filbert 3/4 Sleeve Popover Blouse) and #4 (41Hawthorn Benson 3/4 Ruched Sleeve Blazer).

Overall, I loved my third Stitch Fix box. Even though I didn’t keep everything in my box, I thought that my stylist did a great job once again.  The colors, fit and style were perfect. After every fix I review my style profile to make any adjustments. Since my stylist has done pretty well so far with my boxes, I haven’t really made any adjustments. For my next fix, I changed my profile to exclude necklaces. I want to see what they send me instead.
