November StitchFix Review

November 15, 2013 · 9 comments

I finally received my second StitchFix so here goes another review. The first fix was actually pretty spot on for my style. I didn’t need many of the times so I didn’t keep them. This time, I was sent all tops as requested. I liked 4 out of 5 but still only kept one. Read my previous review if you are unfamiliar with StitchFix. It’s basically a personal shopper for $20 who sends you clothes to your doorstep.

These pictures were taken immediately after I got out of the shower which is why my hair looks disheveled and I’m wearing black yoga pants. I had to try on the clothes asap and send back the rejects since my box was delivered while I was in Disney World. You have just 3 days to make up your mind.

The first item I tried on was a burgundy 41Hawthorn scarf, called the Julie Lace Print Scarf. While I liked it, I didn’t think it was worth $38. I rarely wear scarfs but I love how they look on other people. I just don’t have the wardrobe for them yet.

I wanted a plaid shirt and was happy that box came with one. While it doesn’t look that great in the picture, It’s one of those shirts I can see myself living in this winter. It is made by Fun2Fun and named the Colibri Paid Printed Tab-Sleeve Shirt with a $48 price tag. I love that it has black in it so I can wear with my black skinny jeans or even black skirt as they showed in the card that shows you how to style the pieces. I decided to keep this one!

Next, I tried on the 19 Cooper Cathleen Split-Neck Tulip Sleeve Blouse. The material was silk like which was really soft and felt expensive (the top was $68) but I hate dry cleaning tops as this one called for and I could tell if I sweat at all, the wet would cause a watermark under the arm pits resulting in a dry cleaning bill after each wear. It’s hard not to sweat when I shoot videos with all the lighting required. This shirt would have been great on camera as it was a great color but price and dry cleaning made me send this one back.

Now, I loved this next item and almost kept it. The Navy Roxane Striped Tab-Sleeve Open Cardigan fit perfectly and looked really cute. I would see myself wearing it a bunch. I didn’t keep it because at $58, the Peach Love Cream cardi seemed more Forever 21 quality than Banana Republic pricing. I actually went to Nordstrom rack yesterday and got something similar on sale for just $10. I loved the top but wasn’t in love with the price based on the quality. I would be open to spending $58 on a cardigan if I knew the quality was going to hold up for a couple seasons.

The last top was really the only thing I did not like. The top was priced at $48 but felt like a $20 Old Navy shirt. I have one similar to be honest from Old Navy in fact. I just didn’t like the sleeves at all. I actually don’t like black and blue stripes which is another reason I didn’t keep the cardigan above. It wasn’t my style and was surprised it made it into my box. The Renee C Walden Strip and Color Block Knit shirt was a miss.

My second box made me miss my first stylist. The first person I think got my style right the first time, it was my fault that I just didn’t tell them what I was looking for. Since I said I wanted mostly tops for my videos, that was why I was sent all tops. They listen to your feedback! I’m going to give StitchFix (affiliate link!) another try next month. The $20 styling fee went towards my plaid top so I ended up paying an extra $28 for the top and I never had to go searching for the perfect plaid top.

Even though I only kept one item, I love StitchFix. That is how I shop. I try on everything and rarely even buy one item. No one likes shopping with me so I always have to go alone and never have a second opinion. This is why Stitch Fix is great. I kinda wish I kept the cardigan and pants from my first fix but I guess that is the buyers remorse of StichFix since you can’t go to a store and get it Have you tried StitchFix yet? What are your thoughts?

I love it! I am getting my next one next week. The first one was spot on. I kept 2 items and was tempted to keep 4 but one was a polka dot shirt and I have so many and the other was a necklace that I didn’t need. I am stoked about the next one! I do check the material and quality before keeping the stuff..if I get a Christmas bonus, I might upgrade some of the pieces to a higher amount to see what I get in December. That cardi you returned was cute indeed!

I’ve been curious to try stitch fix but it doesn’t really seem worth the money and hassle!

nope, not worth it at all. it takes about 5 minutes to get on shopstyle.com, search what you are looking for (and in a certain price range), and order it online. they are overcharging like crazy!! that plaid shirt looks like one i just got from h&m for 1/4 of the price you paid.

Stitch Fix is awesome but it’s definitely hard to get it all right!

I liked the 19 Cooper Cathleen Split-Neck Tulip Sleeve Blouse. The color looks great and the silk probably felt amaze. With silk tops you can wash them on delicate then hang dry them. I wash and hang mine with my bras lol.

I’m slightly obsessed with Stitch Fix. I had a great experience with my first box, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that my second box is just as great.

I got that pink top too! (And also sent it back.) Since we have such similar style, it will be interesting to see how many duplicates we get!

I am having great experiences with Stitch Fix so I recommend you keep giving them feedback and possibly move your price point to the cheapest setting to see how that suits you. I just got my fourth fix. After each fix, I have given ample feedback and as a result, my fixes just get better and better. I enjoy getting things I might not normally find on my own. I am a single mom to twin toddlers and run my own fitness bootcamp and dietitian practice so I do not have the time to shop freely like I used to. This exposes me to new brands and clothes I do not see on people all the time. Nothing I hate more than buying a cute top and then having a client show up wearing the same one! :)

I have been hearing all about Stitch Fix and I just can’t get past the fact that I can find similar items at TJ Maxx for a fraction of the price. $38.00 for that scarf? Please! You do not have to spend a lot of money to look good. I think for what you get the proces are way too high.
