My March Stitch Fix - To Keep It All Or To Not Keep It All?

And then it happened again. Stitch Fix went and knocked another box out of the park. From the minute I opened it I knew "oh no, I'm in trouble...with my husband." Apparently after 30 some fixes, my stylist has an idea of what I like ;) If only men were that easy to train...

For those of you who haven't yet given Stitch Fix a try, it goes like this. 

1. Head to the Stitch Fix website and fill out an extensive profile. You will select what styles of clothing you like, discuss your sizing, let them know what body parts you like to flaunt and what you like to cover up, your preferred price range, and so on.

2. Sign up to receive your first fix. THIS WILL BE THE MOST EXCITING MOMENT OF YOUR LIFE. Hypothetically speaking...or in my case, realistically speaking. 

3. Wait for your fix to arrive! Open your front door, look down, and squeal in excitement. It's natural, just let it happen. Open that box and feast your eyes on the 5 items that your stylist hand selected for you. Do a little happy dance, get those jazz hands working, and shake what your mamma gave ya.

4. Decide what you are keeping and what you are returning! You have 3 days to decide so choose wisely. Take this time to try everything on in the comfort of your own home home (no dressing rooms that are so small you can hardly turn around in, no awkward moments of people looking at your mismatched socks, and no avoiding stepping on the chewed piece of gum that somebody else's two year placed on the carpet). Look through your closet to see what else you have that coordinates with the items and so on. Alright good, know what you are sending back? Awesome - the postage is already taken care of for you! Just head to your post office and drop it off! 

5. Repeat scheduling your next fix over and over again until you feel as though you have enough clothes to last you a life time [hint: you will never reach this point, it is impossible, I have learned]. 

Some of you have asked what the typical price range is -- they say that the average price per item is $55. Sometimes the items are considerably less and sometimes they are more. I will note that the quality is top notch and I have never ever had a problem with any of the items that I have kept! 

Stitch Fix is made to bring you all of the items that you never knew you always wanted. 

My March 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 bright pink 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 my 32nd fix..

1. Olive & Oak - Mulliken Raglan Striped Knit Shirt - Small [kept]

Do you know what I love more than a baseball tee, distressed jeans, and a pair of Converse? Macaroni and cheese. But that's it. This shirt is everything and I can't wait for Spring to roll around so I can wear more of it. Also, side note : the above pictures were taken during a snow storm hence the fuzzy white things flying all over the place and why I then had to move inside for the remainder of the post. God bless Indiana. 

2. Margaret M - Emer Polka Dot Print High Waisted Cropped Pant - Small [kept]

YOU GUYS. I requested a pair of work pants in this fix and boy did they deliver. These babies are amazing. From the fit (hello stretch), to the feel, to the look -- it is all perfection. I love the polka dot pattern as it makes the "serious professional" look a little more fun. I can't wait to receive other work pants in future fixes. Preferably ones that also have no buttons or zippers. I like efficiency in my life.

3. Pixley - Martina Slub Knit Open Cardigan - Small [returned]

I almost don't want to talk about this one. For whatever dumb reason I returned this cardigan. When trying it on I felt like it was just average. Looking back I think the color is bangin' and hello, it has pockets. Never say no to pockets friends. Off to go hang my head in shame....

4. Kut From The Kloth - Kate Distressed Boyfriend Jean - 2 [kept]

I had pinned these a few weeks ago and my sweet stylist Layla, found them for me! I have a thing for boyfriend jeans (mostly because I have only ever had one serious boyfriend which is my now husband so it's like I am living vicariously through them or something). Anything with a little bit of distress on them is a-okay in my book.

 5. Gilli - Sina Vneck Printed Maxi Dress - Small [kept]

If you know me at all, you know I am a maxi addict. I should clarify, a maxi dress addict. #teamtampons. Even though I typically wouldn't choose a vneck maxi for myself (it makes the ladies look rather large) I love the print of this dress. I also love that I can pair a jean jacket with it for a cool evening out. Props to maxis for changing the leg shaving game forever.

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

  1. I absolutely love everything that you received in your box. I think you should have kept it all. I am very anxiously awaiting my first Fix and the suspense is a killer. I told my stylist that I've recently started following your blog & I always love your Fixes. Hopefully they will just copy your box every month ;-)

  2. Looks like you got a great fix. My March fix was a disaster, but I'm hoping for a better one in June. I love the dress and work pants the best in your fix!

  4. That is one of the most flattering maxi dresses I've ever seen. Wish I could figure out how to buy it outside of stitch fix!

  5. That maxi dress is so absolutely flattering on you, it's gorgeous!! Those work pants and distressed jeans both look incredible. I'm wearing an Olive & Oak cardigan today...their stuff is great! And MAN, you should've kept that cardigan because that color looks amazing on you, Erin!! Is it average $55 per item or per box??

  6. I don't understand why you didn't keep it all, let's forget for a moment that you "rocked" everything, but wouldn't the "keep all" discount have been better than returning one thing?

    1. I'm thinking the same.

    2. Great question! So how Stitch Fix works is as you start getting referral credit, they change the tiers of discounts. I am at a tier where I receive greater than 25% off so I no longer receive 25% off if I keep all 5 items - I just get my discount for whatever items I keep if that makes sense at all?

  7. oooh I love that baseball top/jeans combo. definitely a spring go-to.

  8. I had my first fix and the problem I had was that it was cheaper to keep everything than send a few items back. You only returned one item, but didn't that make you overall total more? I returned two items and immediately regretted it cause I only saved $10 😞

  9. Love that dress and those work pants! Actually, all of it looks great on you and I love it all. I can't wait until I have a steady income when I can afford to subscribe to StitchFix or Daily Look. Your posts always inspire me to try one out!

  10. Wow. It is all gorgeous. I agree with the others-that cardigan was a keeper. Plus, pockets. I get that.

  11. I got that cardigan in a recent box(in black) and had similar feelings about it. Mostly meh, some regret after I sent it back, but yeah. Probably a good choice! You got such a great box!

  21. I love your posts, but would like if you gave prices. Then I'd know if I wanted to ask my stylist for it. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wow! I want your stylist. I just got my second box and it was a disaster top to bottom. They switch stylists on me and this one must not have read my profile very clearly. So disappointed. You are proof you can get nice things though.

  23. What a great Fix! Is the Sina dress black or navy? I'm receiving it in my next Fix and can't quite tell the color.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love your black wedges with the patterned heel. What brand are they?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Just discovered your blog. Girl, you are FUNNY! And forget the haters with the sponsored posts. It's a legitimate and fun way to make a living, and if someone isn't into the product you are peddling, then move on, no biggie! Anyway, those same boyfriend jeans were in my very first Fix box, and I love them! I'm having a blast going through all of your Stitch Fix posts, keep writing them!

  26. I love the red cardigan you returned. It's perfect for an all black attire especially with leggings. It's the perfect length and looks classy. Not the usual cardigan we buy outside. I have a similar one, and must say one of my most beaten cardigans. Love the pockets. I also love the Margaret M polka pants. I have the classic black. One of my most favorite that I got from my Fix too. I have went over StitchFix board on Pinterest, which is why I am here now. Most of your fixes are my kind of style and just pinned them for my stylist.

  27. I am so grateful to you for your posts! I pin your stuff like crazy! Could I bug you for the details on the blazer you wore in this post with the Emers? I'm on the hunt for a good one with stretch. Thanks so much! :) Warmly, Sara

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 :)
