I received so many compliments on the orange cowl neck dress, I thought I'd share more about it and the other goodies in my Stitch Fix.
Stitch Fix is a monthly subscription stylist service. You answer a few questions about your style and voila! (approximately a month later) -- a box of handpicked retail therapy arrives at your door.
Overall, I thought everything was cute but not really my style. My style is eclectic but nothing stood out as something I would pick out for myself. There were a lot of light colors and pastels which doesn't really match my mom on the go / playground / in the kitchen lifestyle.
The Try On
- I was really surprised by how well everything fit even though the brands were all different.
- The layered chain necklace looked nice with all of the pieces and it was my second most liked piece.
- First being the cowl neck dress and the only purchase I made.
- I feel like the stylist dropped the ball on the colorblocked sleeveless blouse. I don't like to wear sleeveless tops because of a fat arm issue which I noted in my questionnaire. The top was really cute though with an exposed gold zipper in back.
- The french terry asymmetrical jacket was a good choice as I have a deep desire for a leather moto jackets. The 3/4 length sleeve was a plus too for my shorter length arms.
- I was split on the skinny jeans with a low rise. I liked the fit. Too long but that's not unusual. They were very stretchy and covered the butt. However, the color was too light and the fabric was too thin to make them work for me.
The box arrived a few days earlier than the estimated 1 month. The sizes were on point. Everything was stylish and on trend. The style cards give you inspiration on how to incorporate the pieces into your existing wardrobe. Great way to mix it up and get out of a style rut. Significant discount if you purchase the entire box.
The negative aspects of the Stitch Fix were cost and quality. As you know, I spend a lot of time in thrift stores so I had a bit of sticker shock looking at the prices which may very well be reasonable for someone else. I ended up spending $38 after the Klout perk discount.
Quality was another issue for me. While the seams were nice and everything was well made, the fabric quality was not very good for the price. Again, I could be thinking with my thrift brain but there was a lot of rayon polyester blending going on.
