Stitch Fix Review September 2018……what I kept, what I returned and what you should request!
Well, this is it. School is back in session, I can’t keep asking my stylist to send summer clothes…….and fall is on the horizon. When this month’s Stitch Fix arrived, I knew it was the last of warm weather attire. My big goal? To find pieces that I could wear NOW and into the fall. I wanted separates or dresses that could be easily layered.
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.
Side note, Stitch Fix has recently started carrying a few new brands….and one of them? ABLE. Yup, the amazing ethical fashion company I always talk about. Be sure to go into your Stitch Fix app to request brands or pieces you love! And remember, you can also create a board on Pinterest where you share all your favorite Stitch Fix items and send your stylist a link. It’s a great way to communicate!
LNA Taya Ribbed Knit Tee Dress (size medium, $150, returned, see above): I loved this dress, in theory. It looked adorable online, and the cut is super cute….but it was WAY too tight. I think the ribbed fabric makes it extra clingy, and I just couldn’t imagine wearing it.
TOMS Avalon Coated Canvas Sneaker ($59, kept): Now y’all know I love TOMS. And these? The perfect casual shoe. I’ve already worn them twice to work, and they’re as comfortable as can be.
Millian Halter Knit Maxi Dress, Trina by Trina Turk ( size medium, $188, returned): I loved loved loved this dress, and I almost kept it. We’ve got ONE more warm weather vacation coming up, and it would be perfect. But I didn’t want to spend this amount
Rails Cara Printed Tee ( size medium, $78, returned): I loved the print on this tee. Isn’t it adorable? However, the fabric wasn’t my favorite (it felt a little scratchy) and it wasn’t comfortable to wear. I figured for that price? I needed to LOVE it. So it went back.
Just Black Latrice Distressed Frayed Hem Denim Shorts (size 12, $58, returned): Ha. Now I wish I could show you these shorts. But they literally didn’t fit past my hips. So clearly, they were returned.
