Disclosure: I was compensated to run this Stitch Fix review for members of The Recipe ReDux and this post contains affiliate links. Opinions are totally my own.
I write this post with the same feelings as Deanna did in her recent #StitchFixReDux post. I have:
- Excitement and…
- Apprehension – because fashion modeling is obviously quite a departure from recipe writing.
While I get super excited about #HealthyKitchenHacks and yummy recipes…
I’m just as excited I finally found a pair of jeans that really fits my too-tall-for-petite-but-too-short-for-regular-sized frame….thanks to Stitch Fix! Plus the jeans aren’t too tight or too loose. And while I’d gladly pay all my birthday money for these holy-grail jeans, happily they were less than $90.
In fact, the perfect fit of all the Stitch Fix items that arrived was what most impressed me about my very first ‘Fix.’ I’ve searched department and specialty stores, online and thrift stores for clothes – especially pants that aren’t too short or too long. I usually just settle. (So if you see me walking down the street, please don’t check the hem-line of my pants. #Fashionfauxpas)
So I was happy to try it out to see how it worked. What I didn’t quite realize was the impact that a personal stylist would have on what I thought was just an online outfit matching service.
It’s more than that.
My personal stylist, Leah was totally talented at taking a bunch numbers that made up my dimensions, plus my likes and dislikes from my ‘Style Profile’ …and turning them into five fashionable items that I really did like. << That Style Profile is key. I spent a fair amount of time on filling it out.
And as Deanna mentioned in her: How Stitch Fix Works in 4 Steps, the more detail you can give on the Style Profile, the better.
So, would you like to see what I received? Here are my five items:
Piece #1 – Denna Skinny Jean (Kut From The Kloth)
These are THE jeans. Not fancy, but easy to dress up and down. And see: The hemline is ‘just right.’
Piece #2 – Colibri Solid Tab Sleeve Blouse (41Hawthorn)
This blouse is not something I’d pick out on a rack. But I really liked it when I tried it on. And thanks to the little Pinterest-like outfit matching cards that came with each piece, I now know how to wear it. With each Stitch Fix item, you can decide to keep it or send it back. I’ll keep this blouse.
Piece #3 – Diaz Crochet Detail Top (BRIXON IVY)
I love this top. But I have one just like it. So it will be returned.
Piece #4 – Renesme Geo Cube Jersey Faux Wrap Dress (41Hawthorn)
This dress wasn’t a ‘wow’ piece when I first opened the box, but it was such a great fit – and a classic style – I decided to keep it.
Piece #5 – Whitaker Druzy Studs (Leslie Francesca)
The last piece was a pair of earrings which were fun and one-of-a-kind. But don’t really have anything to go with them; so they went back. Next time, I think I’ll request no accessories, so I’ll have even more clothing from which to choose.
