Well, it’s that time again. Yep, I ordered another round of Stitch Fix. You can read my past reviews of Stitch Fix here.
For those of you who have never heard of Stitch Fix (<– referral link!) it’s a service that sends you clothes and/or accessories based on an in-depth style profile you fill out online. You pay $20 for your “fix,” and then the $20 gets applied to whatever you keep. So, for example, you would pay $20 for your shipment, and then if you saw a $40 shirt you liked, you would only have to pay $20 more for the shirt. If you buy nothing you lose your $20, but if you keep everything you get 25% off the total. Whatever you don’t want to keep, you put into a bag with a prepaid return label on it, and drop it off in the mail. So easy!
The best part about Stitch Fix is that it introduces you to new clothes and styles you may not have found on your own. Plus, Stitch Fix is perfect those who, like me, are often too busy to go shopping themselves, and love the opportunity to get clothes delivered right to their door. From there they can be tried on in the comfort of your own home, with other pieces that are already in your closet. It’s a win-win to me!
You can have your Stitch Fix delivered whenever you want, however I find that I like ordering them four times a year – once at the start of each new season! That way I can get excited for the season ahead with a couple of new pieces.
So let’s see what was inside this season’s box, shall we?
The first thing I tried on from my box was this raspberry-colored maxi dress. Unfortunately I had a major blogger fail and forgot to take note of the prices OR brand names of any of these clothes – woops – but if I remember correctly this dress cost about $30.
Although I really liked the color and fit of this dress, maxi dresses just seem a little too summery for me, and I couldn’t really justify buying a new one right now, since the weather will be turning colder soon (it doesn’t help that stores like TJMaxx, Ross, etc. have cute maxi dresses for so cheap!).
Still I probably could have been convinced to buy this dress if it didn’t look so similar to the bridesmaid’s dress I bought for Fabio’s sister’s wedding next May. It’s hard to tell from this picture, but they are almost the exact same color and style. In the end, I decided to send this one back.
Next up was a pair of white “boyfriend” shorts which were about $25. I was pretty hesitant about these when I pulled them out of the box since they looked pretty long and weren’t really my style. Here’s how they looked on:
Ok, no. Although these shorts fit me perfectly and were really comfortable, they were just not my style. At all. Maybe they would have looked better if I rolled them up at the bottom?
I’m not really sure what to think about these, except that they were a no-go for me. Plus white shorts to start off fall? Talk about impractical. Back into the bag these went.
Next up was an adorable little top for $48 that I immediately loved. Although $48 is more than I would normally spend on a top, it was so cute I just had a feeling I was going to wind up keeping it. The top itself was made of sheer royal blue fabric, and was lined with little gold studs along the collar and back. The back is also slightly open at the bottom.
Here’s how it looked on. I apologize for the extreme close-up!
I just loved this shirt and thought it totally fit my personality and style. I’m headed up to NYC next weekend to celebrate my friend Catrina’s impending move to San Diego along with my upcoming birthday, and I am definitely planning to bring this shirt along for the trip. I think it’s so fun!
Next up was a patterned dress that looked ok (just ok, there was a lot of pattern going on) by itself, but once I put it on I thought it was really unflattering on my body type. Just, no.
The last thing in my fix was this cute woven cross-body bag, which I also really loved.
It was nice and roomy, had a dainty gold chain that was the perfect length, and I thought it would be so fun for fall.
I really had a hard time deciding on this one, but since the price tag was around $45 and I just bought a new cross-body bag for myself a couple weeks ago (darn it!), I decided to send this one back. I’m clearly having some buyer’s remorse about this one. (Is it buyer’s remorse if you don’t buy it? Is it non-buyer’s remorse? #ImportantQuestions)
Anyway, all in all I really liked this Stitch Fix. Although there were a couple items that were not right for me, the other items completely made up for it. I can’t wait to wear that top next weekend. Eeek!!

Question of the day: What would you have kept from this fix?
