Hello! I hope everyone had a nice holiday and a happy new year. I’m trying to get back into the swing of posting Stitch Fix reviews again, so I figured I’d start fresh in 2019. For this fix, I asked my stylist for high-quality investment pieces in natural fibers. One of my new year’s resolutions is to avoid impulse purchases, so I want my stylist to keep that in mind throughout the year. I know I’m already a picky person but I actually want to be even more picky with what I’m buying. And we don’t have much space in our NYC apartment for new things, so being picky is important for our sanity! I also asked for a pair of boyfriend jeans.
WHAT IS STITCH FIX?
Stitch Fix is an online personal shopping service. It’s actually quite simple — you are matched with a personal stylist and they send you a box with five items whenever you need, or you can request recurring boxes (the options are seasonal, every couple of months, once a month, and every 2-3 weeks). There is a styling fee of $20 per box, which is credited to anything you purchase. There is also an annual fee option called Stylepass that is offered to frequent customers, where you pay $50 per year for as many fixes as you’d like. It is free to return anything you don’t want or need! I’m planning on writing a more in-depth post about the styling, checkout, and return process soon, so stay tuned for that! To sign up, you can visit Stitch Fix’s website and take the free style quiz. Also, please feel free to use my referral link here!
Here’s what I got:
Bagatelle Rishima Wool Blend Trench Jacket ($138) — RETURNED: I love the style of this jacket, but it was just too big. It was boxy, overwhelming on my frame, and the sleeves were too long. I told my stylist I’d like it more if it were tailored.
Central Park West Grantis Silk Cashmere Turtle Neck Sweater ($138) — RETURNED: I’m a huge nerdy turtleneck fan. My black turtleneck sweaters are the most-worn items in my closet, so I was excited to try another color. But this one just felt too long/big and was bunching in odd places.
Cosmic Blue Love Adrianne Distressed Boyfriend Jean ($88) — RETURNED: These fit length- and hip-wise, but there was a big gap at the back of my waist. I’m glad I tried this style, but I think I’m just going to stick to dark wash and black skinny jeans.
LNA Jillyan Raglan Sweatshirt ($125) — RETURNED: Leopard is great, but this felt like too much for me. Something about how large the pattern was, paired with the bulk of the sweatshirt made me not like it.
Max Studio Nash Sweater Knit Skirt ($54) — RETURNED: I love these sorts of flared skirts, but this one had an extremely high waist and no defined waistband. I’d much prefer something that sat right at the smallest part of my waist. I tried this in all sorts of orientations — pulled down, folded over, with a shirt over, a shirt under, shirt slightly folded over, etc., and nothing really worked. Oh well!
I’m still waiting on a knockout 5/5 fix. Thanks for reading!
