This February 2018 Stitch Fix Review includes a handbag, pants, two tops and a cardigan!
I think it’s fair to say that you can expect regular Stitch Fix reviews from me now. At least until I get around to starting a second blog for these types of posts (sorry foodies who aren’t also into fashion)!
If you aren’t aware, Stitch Fix is a clothing subscription. You fill out a survey about what kinds of clothing you like and don’t like, as well as price ranges you’re comfortable paying for each type of item.
Then, after everything is all filled out, you choose a date for your fix to arrive and a stylist will send you 5 hand-picked items to try. If you like them you can buy them. If you don’t like them, you can either request a different size or return them. You can keep as much as you want, but if you keep all 5 items you also get a huge 25% discount.
Stitch Fix does charge a $20 styling fee, but that is credited towards anything you purchase. However, if you’re new to Stitch Fix and use this link, they will waive your first styling fee. So, you can try Stitch Fix risk free! Shipping both ways is always free, as well!
This is actually my 10th fix!
February 2018 Stitch Fix Review
For this review I asked for my usual – layering pieces and all things lacy and feminine. I also asked for ideas for what to wear with a pair of dusty rose colored jeans that I have. Here is what my stylist, also named Lauren, sent me.
Skies are Blue Alisson Chambray Top ($58.00)
Initially, I was so excited to see this top! Lauren picked this as a top I could wear with the jeans I had asked about! Not only that, but I’ve been wanting a button up chambray top!
I loved the color and the fabric.
Unfortunately, I deal with the fact that I usually am in-between sizes. This shirt was just too tight in the chest and has no stretch. I strongly debated asking for the next size up, but since I’m going strong with dieting and exercising, I’m afraid the next size up would be too big. I also really want buttons, rather than the pullover style, so I may request that on my next fix!
Kaileigh Belina Back Detail Blouse ($38.00)
I believe this was chosen for me because it would be great as a layering piece. The classic colors and polka dots make it very versatile, however, it felt a little cheap. Still, under a cardigan or blazer, it could work great.
If it fit.
Unfortunately, I had the same issue with this top. It was just too tight in the chest area.
41 Hawthorn Menton Dot Stitch Cardigan ($68.00)
I love 41 Hawthorn and the last cardigan I received from them a couple fixes ago was perfect!
While this one is absolutely beautiful and soft, and pretty much everything a cardigan should be, I just didn’t like the way it fit me. I like cardigans that are a little over-sized so that you can wrap them around you (versus buttons), but this one was too small to do that with.
I’m being a little nit-picky, but I find that I have to be or I end up with a closet full of clothes that I never wear. The price on this beauty was just too high to risk it.
Liverpool Jacqueline Skinny Pant ($78.00)
While I really liked all the other items when I pulled them out of the box, I just did not like anything about these pants. I didn’t even want to try them on because I knew I wasn’t going to keep them. But, if I’ve learned anything, it’s that you have to try things on to really know. So, I did.
And I hated them even more.
For one, the material is heavy and feels like a pair of Under Armour sweatpants that I own. I also had the same initial impression with these as I did with the blouse, they just looked cheap. But, they aren’t cheap! They are as much as some of the best jeans that I own (and got from Stitch Fix!), so I’m just confused by these. Maybe I’m just not in the loop fashion-wise or something?
Even if they were the cutest pants ever, they were way too long! The waist fit perfect but there was so much extra at the bottom even when I hiked them up as far as they would do.
Shiraleah Jesse Crossbody Bag ($48.00)
So this fix wasn’t a total wash for me. This bag is gorgeous! I love the style and the color. It’s also just big enough to throw an extra diaper or two in as well. Any bag that frees me from hauling around a diaper bag is a win!
The inside is so pretty and has two open pockets and a zippered pocket.
There is also an additional zippered pocket on the backside of this bag.
Of course I would like every fix to be a complete win, but sometimes, it just isn’t quite there. I do feel Lauren took everything I said into consideration when making her picks for me. I would have definitely bought the chambray shirt and the cardigan if they fit better. Unfortunately, for me, sizing can be tricky. I now know a few adjustments I need to make in my profile for next time!
For reference, the total of all my items was $290.00. Had I bought all 5, I would have saved $72.50, making the total $217.50.
Remember, if you’re interested in trying Stitch Fix for yourself, using this link will waive your styling fee! That means you can try out this service risk free! Just remember to be super detailed about what you like, don’t like, and any sizing issues you might have.
