The October PopSugar Box included a $20 gift card to Stitch Fix and since it’s a box I’ve been wanting to check out, I ordered right away. Stitch Fix is a personal styling service for women. You provide your style, size, and budget preferences, and they will send you a package of stylish goodies to try on at home. There is a $20 styling fee that is applied to your order should you decide to keep any / all of the pieces and since that was the exact amount of the gift card we received, it was a no brainer to give it a go.
Stitch Fix ships via USPS. My “Fix” was scheduled to arrive on the 9th, but actually arrived a day earlier.
So I randomly logged into my Stitch Fix account the other day and saw a list of items that were included in my Fix and I just wasn’t excited. Still I wanted to make sure I gave it all a fair chance, so I didn’t give it too much more thought until it arrived.
Stitch Fix includes little style cards for each of the pieces in the Fix. They give you two different ways to wear each piece and include shoes and accessories selections as well. Styling cards are also pinned to each item in the Fix. The box also includes a price list which breaks down the cost of each individual item, as well as, what the cost would be if you got the whole thing. You get a 25% discount if you purchase all of the items (that’s on top if your $20 styling fee credit which is deducted if you purchase any item) in your fix. Here are the pieces that were included:
~Mo-Ka Lyons Faux Leather Jacket ($58): First of all this is the worst picture on the planet. Sunshine plus my counter and a black jacket just don’t work out well. I thought that the jacket was okay, but the fit was boxy on me and way too short for my taste. On other people I can see it. On me. No.
~41Hawthorn Cross Front Long Sleeve Blouse ($58): I don’t hate this print, but the style just doesn’t work for me. It just hangs oddly and no matter what I wore under it, I know I’d feel awkward in it.
~Kut From The Kloth Crason FrontTwist Abstract Print Tank ($68): I *almost* kept this one because it looked cute under a cardigan, but even after the $20 credit I decided it wouldn’t be worth it. I do love the print on this though and the length was great.
~Colorworks Thompson Boat Neck Sweater ($68): I love this color and the quality of this was fabulous. But the boat neck part I didn’t love. This sweater in a v-neck? I’d be all over it and would want one in every color they made it in.
~Kut From The Kloth Danny 5-Pock Knit Pants ($78): I love these pants (they are a stretchy knit material), but I have a pair basically just like them ;(. And in the same exact color (these are a dark grey). Had they been any other color they would have been mine.
All totaled my Stitch Fix was valued at $330. Should I have opted to keep it all, it would have totaled $232.50 ($330 – $20 styling fee credit – $77.50 Discount for buying all of the pieces) which I think is more than reasonable. While I didn’t opt to keep any of the pieces this time, I already have my next Fix scheduled for December. I plan to tweak my profile and give more detailed information so I can have a better chance of getting items that best work for me. Since I used the Stitch Fix gift card from PopSugar, it didn’t cost me anything to try this out. Typically you are charged a $20 styling fee, which like I mentioned previously can be applied to the item(s) you purchase from your fix.
