May 2016 Stitch Fix

I am late to the party posting about my May fix as it’s already June 1st…SORRY!  It’s such a fun, busy, time of year and I’m LOVING the warm weather.  If you don’t know about Stitch Fix please scroll to the end of this post for all the details.  Here’s what I received in May:

1. Emer Printed Knit Straight Leg Pant $98. This was by far my favorite item in the box.  These pants are awesome!  The print is tiny white polka dots but from a distance they just look like grey pants. There is not zipper, button, clasp or any other hardware!  Just stretchy material and a wide waistband.   MY KIND OF STYLE!!!  They’re a keeper 🙂

2. Marley Lace Detail Blouse $58. This is a great top for work and just my color.  I love the bright blue for spring and summer. There’s fun, lace detail on the shoulders and back.  It fit great and looked perfect with the pants so it’s also a keeper!!

3 & 4.  Cordelia Chevron Tank $38 and Fleur Frayed Hem Denim Short $58. Bleh. I did ask my stylist for some casual summer clothes but this was a bit too casual for me…or maybe they just didn’t fit right…or both.  To use Reba’s words, this outfit made me feel like “I might have been born just plain white trash…”  (Fancy?!  Anyone?!).  Anyway…these are going back. This was the only picture I took of these items so apologies for the facial expression.

5.  Arlen Faux Wrap Dress $78. EW!!!!  EW EW EW!!!!  Look at me in this!!  One…big…rectangle.  I have a short torso and really need a distinct waistline in dresses so this just didn’t work.  Plus it looks like wallpaper.  And Easter 20 years ago.  And EW.  Bye bye faux wrap dress.

S0 I’m 2 for 5 this month (last month).  I had a $25 credit so I ended up paying $131 for the pants and top.  Not too shabby for a great work outfit that I’ll wear over and over.    Here’s what my stylist had to say:

What is Stitch Fix??

Stitch fix is an online shopping service and I think their system is brilliant.  Here’s how it works:

Create an account on the Stitch Fix website and complete an extensive style profile.  The profile questionnaire will include information about your size, style, price range, etc.  You will also determine how often you want to receive your “fix”.  Your profile is then sent to a personal stylist who puts together your fixes.  You can also opt to attach a Pinterest board or other social media sights so your stylist gets a better feel for you.

I chose to receive monthly fixes with my first to arrive in December, 2015.  A few days before your fix arrives, your account will be charged a $20 styling fee.  Each fix contains 5 items.  The items vary and can be clothing or accessories…dress, pants, sweater, necklace, shoes, purse, etc.  It’s a surprise each time!  Also included with the five items is a personal note from your stylist and outfit ideas for each individual item.  Finally, there is a price sheet.  Now comes the pressure cooker!  You have 3 days to determine what you want to buy and what you want to send back. There is a prepaid bag for returns…just put your discards in the bag and drop it in any mail box.  Finally log on to your account and pay for items you want to buy.  Your $20 styling fee will be put towards your purchase.  If you purchase all five items, you will get a $25% discount.  So…to wrap this up…you are taking a $20 risk for each fix.  The worst that can happen is that you send all 5 items back and you’re out the 20 bucks.

    I hate that you did not like the Arlen Faux Wrap dress. I have been requesting this dress from Stitch Fix in my last 3 fixes with no luck. I’m absolutely obsessed with it.

    I agree with with all your comments on the other pieces but you should’ve kept the dress. ?
