I’ve wanted to try Stitch Fix for a while now, and last month I finally gave in and decided to try it! For those of you who don’t know, Stitch Fix is an online styling service. You take their style quiz which gauges your style, size, prices, and gives room for you to make special requests. Then, your stylist picks out clothes for you based on your answer to the quiz, and a week or so later a box arrives on your doorstep! The styling fee is $20, which is later turned into a credit to be applied to buying the items in the box. If you find an article of clothing you like, you keep it and pay for it through the Stitch Fix website. If there’s something you’re not a fan of, you simply seal it in the pre-made shipping bag they send you and mail it back!
For my first box, in my special requests I told my stylist that I wanted casual wear that was just a bit more fashionable, but appropriate to wear to work. I asked for layering pieces since the weather in my area varies greatly, and I requested hair accessories for my long hair. I was impressed with what my stylists picked for me based on the limited information she had!
The first article of clothing is a light gray Denver front twist brushed knit top from Market & Spruce. This knit top is so comfortable and soft, and it’s going to be a very well-loved piece in my closet! It’s slightly over-sized and absolutely adorable! It’s a simple shirt that’s perfect for a chilly fall day.
The second clothing item is a Ruby cold shoulder open back knit top rom Kaileigh. I love cold-shoulder shirts, it just adds a little sass to any outfit! I liked pairing it with an open back, and it’s a piece for one of those sunny fall days at the pumpkin patch. Unfortunately, it was a little big on me. When it comes to shirts with more intricate styling at the top, it’s difficult for me to find a good fit. This shirt came to me in a small, and it hung a little too low on me and was a bit baggy. I only have a quick photo of the size that doesn’t fit because I’m in the middle of exchanging it for a smaller size.
My pants for this outfit were Ellie skinny high rise jeans by STS Blue, and oh my gosh, I love these jeans!! I was nervous about trying them on, because it’s extremely difficult for me to find jeans that fit well, and this was actually one of the reasons I originally decided to try Stitch Fix. These jeans are so comfortable and stretchy, and they remind me of jeggings while still being jeans. I was stunned, and I applaud my stylist for picking out an impeccable jean and a perfect size on the first go-around!
My layering piece was an Adelie hooded rib sleeve cardigan from Lety & Me. I’ve always adored a olive greens such as this, and some of my favorite shirts are in this color. I like the ribbed sleeve and hood on this piece, and it’s not to heavy but not too light, it’s just right for my climate! I’ve already worn it a couple of times, and it fits me well in the arms and the length is immaculate.
For my last piece, it’s time for accessories! My stylist answered my request for hair pieces splendidly with a Python three piece scrunchie set from Marlyn Schiff. These animal print scrunchies are perfect, and are a big trend for fall. I love how soft, plush, and luxurious these are; I never thought that I would be calling a hair scrunchie luxurious, but there’s no going back to regular scrunchies now.
Pricing & Buying
It’s time for a total! The Denver front twist top was $38.00, the cold shoulder open back shirt was $34.00, the cardigan was $44.00, the jeans were $55.00, and the scrunchies were $29.00. The subtotal for everything was $200, however if you choose to purchase everything, there’s a ‘Buy All’ discount of 25%, which totals to $50. The styling fee for $20 is also applied as a credit, and shipping is free. All together, the $200 is knocked down to $130. I chose to purchase all, because I adored all of the pieces and they all fit well! I am exchanging the cold shoulder shirt for a smaller size, though.
