If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen my story (& accompanying song) about how my Stitch Fix arrived early this month. Which then reminded me that I never post my StitchFix review for LAST month.
It’s been one of those months, you guys. I don’t know if I have fully accepted that it’s March, yet. And we are halfway done with it! I know I am not the only one with a To-Do list a mile long (and growing!) and not enough hours in the day.
That’s why there will be no awkward outfit shots in this post. I know, I know – you’re heartbroken. But I promise to bring them back for the March post (which technically this is but let’s not go down that road).
For those of you that don’t know, StitchFix is a subscription service that delivers 5 items (clothing, shoes and/or accessories) to your doorstep. You try them on and decide which ones you want to keep. You get to choose how often you want to use the service.
Here’s how it works:
- Fill out your Style Profile so your stylist can get a sense of your style, size, shape, budget and lifestyle. You can also add in any links to Pinterest boards which is HUGE for me, as I pin everything.
- Decide when you want your shipment to arrive. You get to choose how often you want to receive shipments (every 2-3 weeks, once a month, etc) and once your items have been chosen, you will be charged a $20 styling fee. That $20 will be applied as a credit toward anything you keep from your shipment.
- Have a fashion show! I love this part! It’s like Christmas and birthday presents every time that box shows up. You can use the app to see what items are on their way to you, but I prefer to be surprised. I am consistently amazed at how well most things fit – especially jeans. I have the hardest time finding jeans IRL but StitchFix gets it right every time.
- After you have decided what you are keeping, simply return the items you don’t want and leave your stylist feedback through your account. The $20 styling fee will be applied as credit towards any items you keep. You get a discount for keeping the whole box.
Let’s dig into
this month’s last month’s box!
Loveappella Madras Embroidery Detail Knit Top | M | $48 | RETURN
I really liked the color of this top and the embroidery detail. Unfortunately the fit was off. It was really narrow in the shoulders and then blouse-y at the bottom, almost like a trapeze top. Not very flattering. Definitely NOT a keeper.
In last month’s StitchFix, my stylist sent a pair of TOMS flats that didn’t work for me at all. When I returned them, I made a note that I was not a fan of the TOMS flats but I would be open to wedges. This month I got…another pair of flats. Womp wimp. I was surprised and disappointed because usually the stylists really take your feedback to heart and course correct on the next box. Not this time. Needless to say, these bad boys went back.
I was SO excited when I saw that I had a pair of Kut From The Kloth jeans in this Fix. I thought I would be keeping them FO SHO since these are my go-to jeans. However, these were not y size at all. They were a size up and looooong. I love the wash of them (super dark) but I had a pool of fabric at my ankles (and I am not a short person) and the waist/hips area was entirely too big. With a heavy heart and a sad face, these went back into the return envelope.
I was not a fan of this jacket from the get-go. Even in the picture, it looked boxy and shapeless. When I tried it on, same. The color was also this really unappealing brown color. No thanks. I couldn’t get this off fast enough.
Daniel Rainn Waterman Split Neck Blouse | M | $68 | KEEP
This shirt was immediately a keeper! It has little dandelions on it and I am a sucker for dandelions and all their promises of wish-fulfillment. I also liked the split-neck cut. This was one of those shirts that I put on and didn’t take off for the rest of the
So there you have it! I wasn’t really crazy about this month’s Fix at all but next month is looking up. Be sure to check back next week for the March StitchFix review!
