Stitch Fix Unboxing and Review: February 2014

purchased affiliate links

I’m so sad that I couldn’t review my December Fix: I got it on the day when I had no time to try anything on, and then I was busy for the next two days, too. In the end I didn’t keep anything, because I had problems with either colors or the fit. In February I could actually take my time trying everything on, and even got to keep one item. If my budget allowed, I would have kept the whole box! 🙂

In a nutshell, Stitch Fix is a personal shopper service: for a $20 styling fee a specially designated Stitch Fix stylist will put together a package full of fashionable items, all according to your style profile. This fee will be applied as a credit toward anything you keep from your shipment, and if you choose to keep it all, you will get an extra 25% discount. After you get the box, it’s very simple: try it on, keep what you like, and send back everything you don’t want within 3 days in a convenient prepaid envelope. You can choose either to get a one-time fix, or to subscribe on a monthly basis. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?

This time around I was sent five items instead of four, and I must say I had a great time playing with them. I got 41 Hawthorn Striped Knit Cardigan, Renee C Melody Longsleeve Cowl Neck Dress, LA MADE Weaver Mixed Cowl Neck Top, Under Skies Sacha Beaded Pocket Short Sleeve Shirt, and Emperia Crossbody Bag.

LA MADE Weaver Mixed Cowl Neck Top

The first thing I tried on was this bright blue cowl neck top from LA MADE. It features a very relaxed fit, and can be dressed up or down with accessories. It has a very interesting detail in the back made out of different type of cloth, which I thought was pretty cool. The material felt very light and airy, something that would be perfect for summer.

Under Skies Sacha Beaded Pocket Short Sleeve Shirt and Emperia Crossbody Bag

These two things I tried together: Emperia bag and Under Skies top seemed like they belong together. The bag is made of faux leather and features spikey accents, making it look a bit more edgy. I thought the design was nice, but I wasn’t crazy about the color. The semi-sheer T-shirt is actually really cool, and has a lovely embellished pocket in the front, which is totally my style. I knew right away that I had to keep it, before I even looked at the price. It turned out to be the cheapest item in the box, and of course I was quite happy about that 🙂

41 Hawthorn Striped Knit Cardigan 

Next item is this ultra-comfy cardigan from 41 Hawthorn, which is Stitch Fix’s own line of clothing. It fit me perfectly, and I loved the length and the material. I considered keeping it, but after closer inspection I noticed a few small tugs here and there. A shame, really, but I would not pay full price for a less than perfect product.

Renee C Melody Long Sleeve Cowl Neck Dress 

Last but not least, Renee C dress [and that’s a scratch on my mirror, not a dirty armpit, LOL]. It fits me like a glove, and the material is oh-so-soft and warm, which is perfect for dressing up during cold Michigan winters. I think my stylist did a really great job picking it for me, but she had no way of knowing that I already have pretty much the same dress in black: also cowl neck, similar length, except it’s black and not dark gray. Nonetheless, I enjoyed trying it on to confirm once again that this style hugs my curves in all the right places without revealing too much 🙂

41 Hawthorn Striped Knit Cardigan – imperfections

StitchFix accomodated all of my requests, and clearly looked at my Pinterest board that I provided for inspiration. I wanted no more pants [check!], more preppy-style clothes [that t-shirt totally fits the profile!], at least one bright item per fix [hello, blue top]. I also prefer having a bit more coverage in the front [check!], and the full range of sleeves – from sleeveless tops to long-sleeve dress, StitchFix covered all the bases. Even though this month I could only afford one item, I really hope my fixes will continue being this awesome in the future. And again, I’m sorry for the terrible picture quality, I wish I had better conditions to take large scale photos. Maybe I can make my husband take my pics outside when it’s warm 🙂
