I have been wanting to try Stitch Fix for so so incredibly long. When I first read about it I was pregnant with my little man, and it didn’t make sense for me to invest in good quality clothes that I’d stretch out with my big belly. Now that I’m two month’s post-baby I thought I’d give it a try. I’m so glad I did. What a fun experience it is!
Let me back up a bit just in case you haven’t heard of Stitchfix before. Stitchfix is an online styling service. You get your own personal stylist who handpicks a “fix” for you with five items. You get either clothing or accessories that are unique to your budget, and tastes. You’ll get three days to decide if you’re going to keep anything from your fix. The styling fee is $20 and that goes towards any purchase you end up making. If you buy all 5 you get 25% off the entire order. If you haven’t tried it yet, it’s so fun. You can sign up to get fixes whenever you want, or get them sent to you monthly, even bi-weekly. It’s perfect for a busy mom like me who has no time to shop for clothes. You can learn more about signing up for your first fix Here!
Kacie Half Flap Crossbody Bag — $48.00
I struggled with this. I had specifically asked for a fall bag, and they obliged with this cute black bag. I had been going back and forth whether to keep it or not because I liked it, but I’m not sure I was ready to part with $50 for it. I loved the inside, I loved that it was vegan. Had it been half the price I would have kept it. It was a great bag, but for the money I had to send it back. Verdict: Returned.
Alondra Ruched Pencil Skirt — $58.00
They sent me this skirt, size medium and I will be the first to tell you I’m not a skirt person. I only own one other skirt. However, every year about this time of year I start panicking. I end up going shopping for dresses because my husband’s company hosts a very upscale Christmas party. It’s a stressful thing for me to try on dress after dress. It fits my curves in all the right ways, and I also love that it stretches so as I continue to shed off this extra baby weight, it will still fit. Verdict: Kept.
Gradon Sheer Raglan Seam Sweater — $58.00
This was a simple, safe black sweater and I really loved it. It’s simplicity makes it a timeless sweater that I know I will be able to wear for years. It was forgiving on my mama pooch, and really versatile. It looked nice with jeans, or it could be dressed up with that skirt up there for my husband’s Christmas party (I sweat this party, you know). Even though it’s pricey compared to what you’d typically find in my wardrobe I know I will wear it for years. Verdict: Kept
Caspian Scallop Trim Cardigan — $68.00
This cardigan I think was my absolute favorite piece from this fix. This nursing momma dresses in layers so I don’t show the world my stomach pudge when I’m feeding my two month old son. My husband teases me because since opening the box I have worn it every day. I had to consider the scallop, I wondered at first if it seemed too old fashioned…vintage..grandma-ey? It grew on me. It really grew on me. The scallop in the end made it feminine and gave it personality. It’s super warm too, perfect for this upcoming winter. Verdict: Kept
Emer High Waisted Tall Trouser — $98.00
These trousers were very basic, slim and timeless. The key word here though is slim. I poured myself into them, and the only reason I could was because they were stretchy. I couldn’t even post a picture of me in them because I had a muffin top that topped all muffin tops ever. Every item in this stitch was a medium, but this one was on the smaller side of medium. If I had to guess, I would have placed them at a size 4 or a 6. I haven’t been that tiny since… ever, and specially not that tiny two months after having a baby. Had they been a larger size I would have considered them, but for almost $100 I would have had to really love them. They were so small I really can’t think that I can give a good review of them. Verdict: Returned
So 3 out of 5 on my very first Fix. I’m so pleased with my first fix, I’ve heard they can be a disaster when they’re trying to figure you out. This I feel was a very safe conservative fix, so now that they’re getting to know me they might take more risks. I’d like to see more flexible items shipped to me, hopefully they’ll send stuff that will be flexible as I slowly get back down to my pre-pregnancy weight.
If you want to try Stitch Fix, I totally recommend it. You can fill out your style profile and sign up for your first Fix here.
