Woop woop! Happy Wednesday, Happy February, and HAPPY Stitch Fix reveal day! Alright, so I'll admit that intro may have been a bit dramatic and over-hyped for this months fix, but I'm going to leave it anyways. I'm not going to say the items in this fix sucked, because they definitely didn't, but they were certainly not my style.
When your stylist goes on vacation when your fix needs to be created, it's not generally a good thing.
Before we get started, here is a bit about Stitch Fix if you don't already know:
- It is a personal styling service in which you fill out a style profile, give them links to your Pinterest style board and leave notes for your stylist as regularly or irregularly as you'd like.
- Your stylist takes the time to handpick 5 items for your fix that they think you'll love. These items vary from clothes to jewelry, scarves, purses and even shoes. For my Stitch Fixes I only ask for clothes because that is the area where I lack styling ability.
- They ship you your fix, you receive it and have approximately 2 days to try everything on and decide if you love it or hate it. Then you send back what you don't want in a pre-paid envelope and keep the items you couldn't part with.
- Last little details, Stitch Fix has a $20 fee for each fix sent to you. If you purchase any items the $20 goes towards your purchase and if you purchase all five items you get 25% off! You can get a Fix as often as you want. I am signed up to receive them monthly but I can turn that off at any time, set it up to send only when I request one or I could even bump it up to every two weeks (if only Justin wouldn't have a fit over that...).
Also, before we get started, can anyone tell me why my camera made all of these pictures look kind of like... I don't even know how to explain it. They aren't out of focus per se, but they are kind of, blotchy? I cleaned my lens so that wasn't it.
Mystree - Rickhouse Mixed Material V-Neck Pullover
Small - $78
So like I said, not awful, just not my style. It really wasn't very flattering, the layers at the bottom made it kind of flare out from right below the bust and I wasn't loving it. HOWEVER, if this is your style, it was about the softest piece of clothing I've ever put on my body, so I would recommend it!
Sade New York - Jamiee Knit Dress
Size 4 - $78
This dress was actually quite flattering besides that in person it made me look like I had itsy bitsy girls at the top there, which is weird, considering the cut. I also didn't love the length and for the love of all things holy I don't need any more damn knit dresses. Which I have now added to my Stitch Fix profile. Back it went (even though the Navy with light blue polka dots was pretty cute).
41Hawthorn - Layman Beaded Blouse
Small - $74
See what I mean by blotchy on the pictures? So, I really can't blame the stylist for this one - but it isn't something I'd ever wear. I asked to be sent a burgundy blouse I returned previously (due to incredibly quick wrinkling), and they didn't have it in stock so she did her best to find something similar. I just think this missed the mark, the sleeves are way too wide, the shirt is super boxy and I'm just not that into beading at all.
Evolution by Cyrus - Hilbers Lace Detail Button-Up Fitted Cardigan
Small - $58
This was an almost keep! This particular cardigan was actually very flattering buttoned or not (which is surprising, usually they gape at the bust), but I just don't wear cardigans. Because I didn't end up loving anything, and I hate, HATE spending $20 for the box to keep nothing, I considered keeping this one but the extra $38 I'd have to spend to get it just didn't seem worth it. Womp womp.
Just Black - Joey Skinny Jean
Size 4 - $88
This is another really sad one because I actually loved the color, and I'm wearing them in every picture above besides the dress, but the pockets were super funky (which I realize, don't show when I have blouses or sweaters on) and I just felt like they made my thighs look bad and like I suddenly had hips. Which is not something I've ever been accused of ever - I'm basically a rectangle. So back they went, unfortunately.
I will say, though, as always Stitch Fix was fabulous to deal with. I simply left a note in my checkout that said I wasn't particularly pleased with this fix (it doesn't match anything I have pinned on my Pinterest board), and that if they would refund me the $20 I would schedule my next fix for sooner than a month from now. GOOD NEWS, they're amazing and waived my fee for my next fix so I promptly scheduled it to come on the 8th (for the record, I got this fix on January 20th).
