The other day I got my fifth Stitch Fix in the mail! I kept one item from my last Fix (a dress ), and I’ve been dying to get this latest Stitch Fix in my hands!
A few days ago I peeked in my account to try and figure out what was coming, but it only lists the names of the items and doesn’t include pictures. So…I had an idea of what was headed my way, but didn’t have any clue as to the colors or patterns of things.
My note from my stylist:
Stitch Fix comes with an information card which includes a listing of everything in the box, prices, and then a total of how much everything would be if you kept everything in the box (it deducts your $20 styling fee and the 25% discount for keeping all of your items):
Here is what I received:
Towne & Reese: Brook Fanned Drop Earrings ($28): This was the first item I saw in my box. I love earrings and these are seriously beautiful. I was much happier with the price relative to last month, and have no qualms about keeping them. VERDICT: Kept!
Margaret M: Emer High Waisted Cropped Trouser ($98): I loved the color of these pants – and was pleasantly surprised that they fit and were pretty flattering. Ultimately, though, for the price and the fact that the pants look a lot like leggings – we weren’t meant to be. VERDICT: Returned!
Collective Concepts: Wintor Leopard Print Cross-Front Blouse ($64): I wanted this top to work so badly. I loved the print. I loved the style. It was flirty and still professional. BUT – I was just too short and didn’t hit at a flattering point between my waist and hips. Had it been made for a longer torso, I’d never take it off! VERDICT: Returned!
Pomelo: Carissa Striped Fit & Flare Dress ($64): I was super on the fence about this dress. I loved the stripes and the style. It was super fun for summer, yet still appropriate enough for work. My two issues with the dress were the pleats (which added bulk) and the fact that it didn’t seem special enough (I have a very similar dress from Old Navy). VERDICT: Returned!
Collective Concepts: Mckinley Tie-Neck Short Sleeve Blouse ($68): This top was the worst Boring color, matronly style, super wrinkled – didn’t even really try it on. Immediate NO! VERDICT: Returned!
I really like the styling cards included in my Stitch Fix box. They help provide inspiration on how you might pair this new find with something already in your closet.
For my fifth box – I was happy that I think my stylist is back on track. Even though I didn’t keep much, the styles represented me well for the most part. I still love the concept, though, and as long as I love even one piece so I don’t lose my styling fee, I’m a happy Stitch Fix girl! Excited to see what’s in my next box, set to arrive on 8/1.

If you don’t know the greatness that is Stitch Fix, let me break it down for you… Basically, Stitch Fix is a personal shopping/styling service for women. You sign up (HERE) and fill out an in-depth style profile about all your fashion likes and dislikes, sizes and even budget preferences. Are you more preppy or more rock n’ roll? Do you wear T-shirts and jeans – or are you never caught without a dress? You can even link to a Pinterest board to really show your stylist what your personal style is all about…
Once you’re all signed up, you’ll receive a box once a month with outfits and accessories HAND-PICKED for you by your personal Stitch Fix stylist. There is a $20 styling fee each month. IF you choose to keep even one item, that $20 is applied to your purchase price. Even better, if you decide to keep all 5 items – you get an additional 25% off your total order. Essentially – you keep what you love and you send back anything that doesn’t work. You only pay for the items to decide to hang on to, and you are charged when you ‘check out’ each month on your Stitch Fix page. You have a few days to try everything on and the box comes with a bag and a prepaid return label so you can easily ship back the pieces you aren’t interested in.
