I’ve heard about Stitch Fix for a while but only recently took the plunge and signed up. For a $20 styling fee, Stitch Fix (check them out here) assembles a box unique to you – your tastes, preferences, sizing, body shape, lifestyle, even your Pinterest boards are taken into consideration. You can choose to keep anything they send you, and the $20 fee is subtracted from the retail amount of whatever you keep. Likewise, you can send anything back and not pay anything more.
I love that they encourage you to be as specific as possible with what you’d like to receive. For people like me who are fairly picky about their style and taste, it’s great that they personally style the box to cater specifically to you. I received five items in my first box, and I was really surprised how well they listened to my preferences. The prices ranged from $28.00 – $88.00, which again was right in line to what I set my preferences to. So far, Stitch Fix is awesome.
Genevieve Stacked Chevron Pendant Necklace by Romolo – $28.00: This was the first thing I saw in the box and it was one of my favorite pieces that they sent me. I mentioned that I love trendy gold jewelry, and this fits the bill. I already own a really similar necklace, so I decided to send this one back. But that’s still great that they nailed my style since I already bought it for myself!
Dayne Skinny Jeans by Kut From the Kloth – $88.00: I never pay more than $50 for jeans. That’s just a matter of principle for me, since I own so many I really just can’t justify spending more than that on some denim. When I first laid eyes on them I immediately dismissed them as too expensive and probably won’t fit right – I am SUPER picky about my jeans. I almost didn’t try them on because I figured they wouldn’t blow me away, so why bother? Lauren asked me to send pictures of what I got (we get excited for each other’s new boxes), and I had to put on pants for the following few items, so I just grabbed these and put them on. I was shocked at how much I liked them. They fit PERFECTLY. They have enough stretch to them to be cozy and versatile, but they’re still hefty in weight and not cheap looking. They are sliiiiightly too long for me, but after modeling them for Brian and seeing his reaction to my booty in them, I decided to keep them. Welcome to my wardrobe, most expensive jeans I own.
Sevilla Funnel Neck Sweater by Loveappella – $64.00: Like the jeans, I immediately dismissed this sweatshirt. It’s just not my style. Then I tried it on, and it actually looked really good. It’s about a size too big on me, so I decided to send it back, but I liked this one as well.
Dorina Crochet Back Dolman Top by Papermoon – $48.00: I thought I would like this sweater, but when I put it on it was too shapeless for me. It was a little too short and a little too wide to be flattering. The fabric was a wide knit so it would require wearing a shirt underneath, which is not going to be appropriate in the Baltimore spring/summer heat that is just around the corner. Sent this one back without hesitation, but I do like the style with the crochet back.
Nickole Sleeveless Lace Fit & Flare Dress by Brixon Ivy – $78.00: I knew I would hate this dress before I tried it on. The color was nice, but I am not a lace girl. It also had ridiculously wide arm holes that looked very strange when I put it on. I don’t typically enjoy poofy skirts, and this flared out too wide for me to enjoy. This one went back as well.
Final Grade: A
I’m rating this box an A. All in all, I think Stitch Fix did a pretty great job for the first box! I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it was fun going through their selections for me and I could totally see why they picked each item based on what they know about me. The sizing is really accurate and once I tweak my preferences a little, I think this could be one of my favorite monthly subscription boxes. I am really looking forward to seeing what they send me next month!
