Stitch Fix Review #20: March 2016

Stitch Fix Review March 2016

Yay, it’s Stitch Fix time yet again! Unfortunately, I never got around to taking try on pics before I sent back the items I didn’t keep, so this will be my first fix with just hanger and style card pictures. I blame my new job and the lack of natural light once I get out of work for the lack of pics. Luckily by the time April comes, all of that should be rectified.

In case you are not familiar with Stitch Fix, let me bring you up to speed. Stitch Fix is a monthly subscription service (although you don’t have to get one every month, you pick how often) that sends you clothes and accessories based on a style profile that you fill out. You can keep what you like and send back what you don’t. There is a $20 styling fee but if you keep any of the items, the $20 fee is deducted from the total purchase price of the item(s) you keep. If you keep all 5 of the items from your fix you receive a 25% discount on EVERYTHING. Basically it is like playing dress up as an adult…..and it is both fun and addicting!

Every month you can also leave a note for your stylist. So if you have an event that you need some clothes for or if you just have an idea of what kind of pieces you want to add to your wardrobe you can pass that information along!

This month, I asked my stylist Diana, for pastels, stripes and florals! Let’s see what she sent me.

Stitch Fix Stylist Note - March 2016

Item #1: Renee C Rosanne Faux Suede Swing Skirt

This skirt definitely fits my request for florals and pastels! It is super soft and very flattering on.

Unfortunately my new job isn’t skirt and dress friendly and I wouldn’t wear the skirt in my non-work life so the skirt got sent back.

Cost to Keep: $64.00

Item #2: Kut From The Kloth Siena Cropped Pant

Kut From The Kloth Siena Cropped Pant - Stitch Fix

I wasn’t sure about these pants when I initially saw them. I felt that they may be a little too preppy for my tastes.

But once I put them on, I knew they were a keeper! They fit great and the color is perfect for the Spring. I guess all the raving people do about Kut From The Kloth is true! They are great pants.

Cost to Keep: $58.00

Status: Kept!

Item #3: Collective Concepts Katelynn Printed Dress

Diana is always great about checking my Pinterest board and sending me items that I pin. And this dress was on my board! I love the colors and the pattern.

Ulitmately I decided to send it back because I wasn’t wild about the fit and I am kind of over polyester clothes. In fact, I decided to update my Stitch Fix profile to reflect that I would prefer not to received polyester items any more. We shall see how that changes things for my April fix!

Cost to Keep: $78.00

Item #4: Loveappella Archor Lace Sleeve Trim Knit Top

Loveappella Archor Lace Sleeve Trim Knit Top - Stitch Fix

This top definitely fits my request for stripes. I love the lace detailing on the sleeves and I think it is a great basic top.

However, it really just is a striped t-shirt and I couldn’t justify the cost of it.

Item #5: Crescent Benedetto Open Back Blouse

Crescent Benedetto Open Back Blouse - Stitch Fix

This item was a no for me as soon as I saw it but I tried to keep an open mind. Initially I wasn’t fond of the colors or the sheerness of the fabric. I did like the detailing on the back though.

Even after trying it on, my opinion remained the same. This top was just not me.

Cost to Keep: $44.00

Status: Returned

This month’s fix was a bit of a miss for me. Although I do love the pants I kept and I have already worn them a couple of times.

As I mentioned above, I’ve altered my style profile to indicate that I do not want to receive any polyester items in future fixes. I’ve also change my price points by changing them from the lowest possible price to the highest possible price. I am curious to see if that will change the kind of items that I get.

Overall, I still enjoyed my Stitch Fix experience even though the items this month were not a perfect fit for me. For me, Stitch Fix is about trying new things and enjoying the convenience of not having to go to a store to go shopping.

On another note, did you see this in one of the resent Stitch Fix emails?

What do you think it is?? My guess? SHOES!!! Based on the woman having no shoes on her feet, I am guessing that shoes will be rolled out nationwide?! I sure hope so!
