Stitch Fix, Fix #1

October 31, 2013

I joined Stitch Fix back in March of this year, so I’m doing a little backtracking to catch you all up on my fixes. What is Stitch Fix? It’s an online personal styling service that sends you monthly “fixes” based on your style profile. It’s a pretty cool concept and you don’t have to leave your house!

Stitch Fix Box on So, How's It Look?

Here’s the lowdown: for a $20 styling fee, your personal stylist will send you 5 items. Keep what you like and return what you don’t. Shipping is free both ways! If you keep just one item, your $20 styling fee goes toward that item. If you keep all 5 items, you get a whopping 25% discount! Return everything and you lose your $20 styling fee.

You can adjust your style profile as often as you like and leave specific instructions for your stylist for each fix. You can also create a Pinterest board of looks you like so they can get even more of an idea of what to select for you. They have different price points as well, so you can somewhat adjust the pricing of what you’ll receive.

I didn’t keep the details on this first fix, so bear with me as I don’t recall the brands or prices (and I promise the pics get better).

Stitch Fix Polka Dot Shirt on So, How's It Look?

Grey Polka Dot Shirt – loved this out of the box, but it made me look really homely. It was prettier in person than in my picture, but I sent this one back.

Stitch Fix Earrings on So, How's It Look?

Majorie Baer Silver Drop Earrings – really liked these earrings, but I already own something similar. These were $30 and felt pricey to me. I sent these back and removed jewelry from my future fixes.

Stitch Fix Navy Striped Shirt on So, How's It Look?

Orange & Navy Striped Shirt – this was cute and I really wanted to keep it, but I was afraid I’d never match it with anything other than jeans. It’s kind of sheer, but was really comfortable. I sent this one back.

Stitch Fix Black Silk Shirt on So, How's It Look?

Black Silk Shirt by Daniel Rainn – loved this! It’s so silky soft and looks great with jeans. It can easily be dressed up with snazzy jewelry, too. Kept it!

Stitch Fix Striped Dress on So, How's It Look?

Black & White Striped Dress – I was head over heels for this dress, but the cut made me look preggo. The stripes curve down at the waist and made me look huge! I’m also really pale and it washed me out a bit. It pained me, but I sent this one back.

I only kept the black shirt from this box, but I’m already hooked on the service. I adjusted my style profile for no jewelry, no stripes, and no white. Stay tuned for Fix #2! If you want to see my previous fixes, check out my Stitch Fix Reviews category.

    My first fix was the best, but the prices were too high so I sent all but one thing back. The second fix was better price wise, but less things I liked. Third fix was my least favorite unfortunately. I am receiving my fourth today in hopes that all my feedback will finally pay off. If not I may have to quit. I hope your experience goes better!

      I’ve since received 8 fixes, lol! I’m behind in posting them. Only one was absolutely terrible. My stylist is really good at guessing what I like. Almost too good as sometimes I get stuff that’s too similar to what I already own. Still loving it!

    I think Imma have to reinstate my Stitch Fix membership. You’re making me very jealous just remembering how fun seeing each box on the front door step was.

      My last fix has THE cutest dress in it that you can dress up with tights and a cardigan for cooler weather. Totally in love with it. Still going strong with my fixes!

    i go back and forth on weather to sign up or not. The prices seem a bit high for me and thats whats holding me back. Love the new design and subcatagories .

      Thanks, Danielle! You can adjust the pricing. Some of the clothes I’ve gotten are worth the price and some seem cheap for the price; it definitely varies.
