February Stitch Fix Review [One Of My Favorites Yet]

I wish I could appropriately describe how I feel every time a new fix shows up at my doorstep from Stitch Fix. One may assume that after 30 some fixes the excitement wears off, however for me it has been quite the opposite. This may be because month after month I feel like my fixes only get better or maybe it's because I am realizing more and more that venturing out to stores and spending hours in dressing rooms isn't my idea of fun. For those of you who haven't yet given Stitch Fix a try, close your eyes and think about this for a moment -- envision opening your front door in your pajamas, looking down and seeing a box that is holding five pieces of clothing and/or accessories that were chosen specifically for you by your own personal stylist. Eyes still shut? Good. Now think about the fact that you are able to bring that box inside your house, open it up, try on five different items in the comfort of your own home, be able to see if (and try out) other pieces in your closet that would coordinate well with it before you decide to buy it. Need to sleep to on it before deciding if you should buy a certain item or not? No problem - you have three! Still with me? Now that you have decided exactly what you want to keep and what you want to send back it's easy - head to your local post office and simply drop off the prepaid package with what you are returning and DONE. 

It is the best shopping experience one could ask for. 

My February fix was once again full of items that excited. In the last couple of posts I have shared my tips for achieving fix success -- 

1. Be specific in your notes to your stylist -- if you are in need of black pants, tell them you want a pair of black pants. Want something royal blue for your closet? Let them know. 

2. Keep your Pinterest fashion board updated and pin items from Stitch Fix that you love - I love their this just in! and ladies in stitch fix boards! Want something similar to what you see below? Pin away baby. 

Without further ado, here is my February fix...

1. Splendid - Finley Long Sleeve Tie Waist Abstract Print Dress [kept]

Three things about this dress - I can wear it to work, it has pockets, and it's warm enough for Winter. Absolutely a win in my book.

2. 41Hawthorn - Presley Colorblock Button-Back Sweater [kept]
jeans // similar boots found here and here

This baby is now one of my favorite sweaters I have ever owned - the colors, the asymmetrical pattern, and the buttons in the back? Yes to all of it.

3. Ark n Co - Davina Open Blazer [kept]
[striped dress from a previous Stitch Fix box]

I have never been one to say royal blue or blazers - perfect for work or a fun night out! 

4. Market & Spruce - Fierro Elbow Patch Crew Neck Sweater [returned]

This sweater I kept going back and forth on - I love the minty colors and elbow patches, however due to my budget I had to cut something out and so this was it. Looking back it makes me a little sad I chose to let this one go...

5. Kut From The Kloth - Michael Faux Leather Jacket [returned]
[striped dress from a previous Stitch Fix box]

This was a great quality faux leather jacket, however I already have a brown jacket that is very similar. Because of that I had to say good-bye to it. Otherwise, I would have totally kept this piece. 

And that concludes February's fix -- which item is your favorite?

  2. Absolutely LOVE the three items you kept! Holy moly! That first dress is perfect! I'm already thinking about requesting it in my next box. YAY for successful boxes!

  3. That elbow patch sweater is adorable!!! I keep going back and forth on whether or not to try Stitch Fix because I've heard that people either love it or hate it. Maybe I'll have to bite the bullet and sign myself up!

    1. Sorry if you already got a reply from me, I thought I posted it but don't see it... Anyway, I think you should try it, it's so low-risk ($20 if you keep nothing, free returns, and you don't have to schedule regular fixes). I thin everyone should at least try it! :)

      You can also check out my three experiences and also get an idea of pricing if you are interested -- I'm a novice blogger and my pics aren't nearly as lovely as Erins, but if it helps to see other experiences feel free to check it out! :)

  6. Want the first dress! Can you give me an idea of how the pricing works?? I looked on their site and it explains how they work with each person's budget, but that's not very specific. What would the first dress cost, for example?

    1. I don't know if Erin had a chance to reply to you, but I just wanted to share a little pricing info with you so you know how it works. That lovely first dress is $88, which is about standard for their dresses. I find that a lot of their clothes are more expensive than I normally spend on clothes (I'm a Banana Republic outlet on sale, Old Navy, or Target shopper ;)), but a lot of times I find it's worth it -- just for not having to go to a store to shop, and to be able to try things on with other items from your closet.

      They say average price is $55, but I think that accounts for accessories too. You can indicate your price range for all types of items (tops, dresses, bottoms, purses, jewelry, etc.), and they try to stay in that range for you.

      I have posted all 3 of my Fixes (nothing compared to Erin's 30!! ;)), and I noted the price for each item I received, so that may help give you an idea of pricing. You can check them out here (just know, I'm not a pro/fancy blogger at all, I just loved SF so much I decided to blog it to share :)). I recommend you sign up and try it --the most you have to lose is $20, and that's if you don't like ANYTHING! Good luck!

  7. As a HUGE Stitch Fix fanatic ( or should I say lunatic with the number of fixes I've already received LOL) I am in love with your fix. I think I would have kept it all. They all look amazing on you too! XOXO, Elif

  13. I have been waiting and waiting for you to post this! I found your blog when I was looking into whether or not I was going to join Stitch Fix. You convinced me! Now I am your latest stalker, I mean follower. ;o) I also live in Indiana, tend to be a tad sarcastic, enjoy a good drink now and then, and wish my clothing budget was larger than it is! Keep the content coming!

  16. Love this, I signed up for stitch fix but then cancelled my first shipment. I am just waiting for a better financial time but would love to know the average prices for those items (PS I love them all!) I am worried that I will fall in love with something but have to return it because of the price! Thanks!!!

    1. They say average price is $55, but I Googled Erin's items and found out how much they are (except the jacket, couldn't find):
      $88 dress
      $68 sweater
      $78 blazer
      $58 patch sweater

      I've only had 3 Fixes, but I note the price of each item in my blogs, so if you want to get more of a sense of price point, you can check it out here: amandasfix.wordpress.com (just know, my blog is not nearly as lovely or fancy as Erin's! ;)) I hope you are able to try it soon, it is so much fun! :)

  18. I got my first fix today, we have similar taste, could you please tell me what price range you do for your tops and dresses, like the cheapest or $50-100 etc? Thank you so much I just didn't know if the cheapest stuff was still cute or what?????

    ReplyDelete
  19. SUCH cute stuff! I got my 2nd fix a couple weeks ago and, just like the first one, I was pretty underwhelmed :( I am super specific on my profile, and I was really specific with what I was looking for this time (an elbow patch sweater was on my list... jealous!), but I didn't get anything I'd asked for. For everyone asking about pricing, I have all of my specs set for "cheapest possible" and everything is still over $50 per piece (even the jewelry I've been sent)... I ended up keeping a pair of slacks this time that I absolutely could NOT part with (Liverpool Madonna skinny pants), and those were $78. I also kept a cute sweater and it was $58. StitchFix is a really cool concept, but I just keep striking out...

  20. What size are you receiving for tops?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Where is your plaid shirt from? Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  22. oh, sigh...i love that minty elbow patched guy!

    ReplyDelete
  23. How does the pink 41Hawthorn sweater wash up? I like it, but I can't decide whether to keep the L and hope it shrinks a bit, or exchange for a M and risk it being too clingy....thanks for any recs!

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
