Stitch Fix Review February 2019……what I kept, what I returned and what you should request!
It’s the season for layering! Here in the City of Angels, our weather is all over the place. Days are warm (sorry northeasterners) and then cold and rainy. It’s the time of year when I constantly dress in layers so I can adjust as the day progresses. My biggest request in my Stitch Fix this month? Pieces that I can wear as the weather changes. I requested long sleeved nicer tees, and sweaters. And I got a GREAT variety of items!
In case you aren’t already familiar with STITCH FIX…….a bit about the service: STITCH FIX is a personalized styling service that sends five pieces (including accessories if you choose)to your doorstep. The great thing? When you join, you fill out an extensive styling profile. You can request certain items or even ask for options for a specific event (like a conference or vacation). You choose how often you get a fix (for me it’s usually once a month). In the comfort of your own home, you try on all items. Then you keep what you love, and send back the rest…..and all with free shipping! There is a $20 styling fee, but you can use that $20 as a credit towards any of the items you keep. And YES, you can set a price range you feel comfortable with.
Want to see what I got? These are the specific items that were in my February fix. Remember, if you see something you love, you can pin the image to a Pinterest board and share it with your stylist!
LNA V-Neck Cutout Sweatshirt (size medium, $114, kept): I have to admit, I balked at the price of this sweatshirt and was emotionally prepared to return it. But once I tried it on? I loved the cutouts and soft fabric. It was WAY more flattering than I expected, and I think I’ll get a TON of use out of it!
Cupcakes and Cashmere Linetta Cotton Jacquard Cardigan (size medium, $115, returned): If you are looking for a great, thicker cardigan…..this is a PERFECT one. It’s warm enough to add a solid layer, and the pattern is even cuter in person. If I didn’t already own a thick grey cardigan, I would have kept it.
Market & Spruce Zansia Curved Hem Knit Top (size medium, $58, kept): I’m a total sucker for a great striped top, and the hem on this one? IS SO CUTE. It’s a great price, and light enough to wear even in warmer months.
Joie Marcina Sweatshirt (size medium, $128, returned): This sweatshirt was such a disappointment. I loved the color blocking, but it was short and too wide and SUPER unflattering. If you are an apple shape or more top heavy, it would probably look adorable….but it wasn’t for me. AT ALL.
Sole Society Nelmaeya Suede Bootie ($100, returned): If you are on the hunt for a taupe bootie, these are PERFECTION. If I didn’t own a similar pair already, I would have kept them!
