After lurking on their website for a few weeks, setting up a style profile and lurking some more, I finally scheduled a Stitch Fix and it arrived this week!!
I also was worried they would send me crazy stuff that just didn't fit my normal style. I wouldn't mind trying a trend, but I don't want expensive things that would be glaringly out of style in a few weeks. So based on other Stich Fix reviews, I added lots of detail to my profile and also pointed them to my style board on Pinterest (which I loaded up with outfits I like).
The wait time to get the fix was longer than I would have liked. I scheduled in mid January and took delivery late February. Perhaps it was the holiday rush or something, but I was pretty bummed there was a delay.
When it arrived I was so excited! The box is even cute and it is packaged so carefully. It really felt like a gift arriving, not anything like a typical department store order. It even included a personalized note from the stylist that showed she had indeed read the notes on my style profile. This was not at all a random shipment, these were truly picked out for me.
These were the five items I was sent:
This top was $54. It looked good on me but not great. I decided that if I'm going to pay full price for items, I want to love them when I put them on. So this one went back.
This adorable dress was $68. I really like the style of it and love the skirt but the top was pretty much transparent and that doesn't work for me. I would have definitely kept it otherwise.
I really liked this purple dress which was $78. It looked good on me and I liked the cut but the sleeves and color and not a logical choice for the coming heat. I couldn't justify the cost on a winter item heading into spring. I tried it on twice to be sure - I really liked it.
I really loved these pink pants for $88. But I had just gotten a nearly identical and non returnable pair from clearance at J.Crew. Seriously the day before. I really don't need two pair of pink pants. So back they went.
I was very pleased with the simplicity of the return shipping. The bag was enclosed and addressed and all I did was fold the clothes back up and stick them in. It gets dropped off at the post office tomorrow but I think you can also just stick it in your mailbox.
I only kept one item from this fix, but I was very pleased overall. I went online and provided feedback about the items which should help improve my order next time. I already went ahead and scheduled one for late next month. And I'm already getting excited about it!
