Stitch Fix Review – Including Just Black Dean Skinny Jeans
Everyone’s talking about Stitch Fix!! And now, so am I!! After reading Still Being Molly’s rave reviews for MONTHS, I finally decided to take the plunge and sign up last month!! My first fix arrived last week and the only thing I have to say is this, “Hello, my name is Alexandra, and I have fallen IN LOVE with Stitch Fix!!” And that’s just after ONE FIX!!!
If you haven’t yet heard of Stitch Fix, here’s what you need to know:
Stitch Fix is basically a monthly (or however often you decide to schedule it) online personal styling service for women! It costs $20 that’s your styling fee, which can be used as a credit towards your final order. While there’s no obligation to keep anything in your box, you’re basically out 20 bucks if you don’t. If you do decide to keep something, you get to subtract $20 from your total at checkout. If you decide to keep ALL FIVE items in your fix, you get a 25% off discount!!!
When you sign up, you fill out a “style profile” with your likes, dislikes, sizes, what you’re willing to try, what you’re willing to spend, etc. Once you’ve scheduled your first fix, one of Stitch Fix’s personal stylists will hand-select FIVE items (clothing and accessories) based on your preferences, and send them your way in a neatly wrapped package.
Once it arrives on your doorstep, you have THREE WHOLE DAYS to try everything on, style it all up (they even send you these style cards with tips), and decide what you want to keep. Anything you don’t want can simply be put in the provided prepaid envelope and dropped off at any USPS mailbox.
Checkout is done online and SO easy (I couldn’t believe how easy it was)!! You simply login and let them know which items you kept, which ones you didn’t, and why (size, style, fit, price point, fabric, color, etc.) Pay, and then done!! See? Easy!! 🙂
And now for my actual first Stitch Fix review!!! I took the liberty of deciding to share as many details as possible with you 🙂 including my first impressions + photos, the size, price, and end result of every item I received in my first fix. Let’s see what I got, what I thought, and what I kept!!
Just Black “Dean Ankle Zip Skinny Jean” Size 2 ($78) I loooooved these jeans out of the box and they were even better on!! I love how they fit. I love how they feel. I love how they look. I love the color (which is actually navy, not denim). I love the zipper detail. I just LOVE them!! And they fit. Perfectly. So I kept them!!! Wins all around!! 🙂
Olive & Oak “Andreas Hi-Lo Raglan Sweater” Size X-Small ($68) Unlike the jeans above, I did NOT love this sweater out of the box. It looked big and boxy, and I thought for sure that it was the wrong size. Boy, was I wrong!!! This sweater is AMAZING!!! It’s so soft and cozy, it fits perfectly (not boxy at all), and I love the color!! So I decided to keep it!! 🙂
Gilli “Anwen Shortsleeve Abstract Print Faux Wrap Dress” Size Small ($64) The fit and style of this dress was right on, and it actually looked pretty great, but I wasn’t a huge fan of the pattern. Or the fact that it was a dress. IF the color/pattern had been different, I might have considered keeping it (because I really did love the style and fit). But because I really have no need for a dress right now, I decided to send it back.
Market and Spruce “Genesis Ruffle Hem Top” Size X-Small ($64) – I absolutely LOVED this top!! I loved it the moment I saw it and I loved it even more when I tried it on!! Which is why I was HUGELY disappointed to discover that it had multiple pulls and even a hole in the chest. I absolutely would have kept it if it hadn’t had so many defects. But I had to return it. 🙁
Octavia “Tina Checkered Infinity Scarf” ($34) This was actually the first item in my fix, but the last one I tried on. While I adore infinity scarves (and own several), I was not a fan of the color combo here. Im just not big on the color mustard. And because I just couldnt see myself reaching for it in my closet, I decided NOT to keep it.
Overall, I was really pleased with my first fix! The sizing (something I was really concerned about) was dead on, and the prices were all around what I would normally spend at places like J.Crew, LOFT, and Anthropologie. Even though I only kept two items, I really LOVE those two items!! And since shopping as a petite can be so tough, this was completely worth it to me!!
I haven’t yet decided what my future plans are with Stitch Fix. I loved it! And I definitely want to schedule a second fix SOON!!! But I’m a little strapped for cash with it being the holiday season, so I’ll probably wait and schedule my second fix early in the New Year! Actually, now that I think about it, scheduling fixes at the beginning of each new season might not be so bad… I’ll definitely have to think about that!!
In the meantime, if you would like, you can sign up for your first fix right here, and see all the magic of Stitch Fix for yourself!!! If you’ve already tried it, Id love to hear all about your experience and what cool things you got
