I received my first Stitch Fix box and I was very excited!
You get a nice note from your Stylist.
Along with a note are pictures and suggested styling options for the five pieces sent to you.
Pixley Martina Slub Knit Open Cardigan | $48
I really liked the softness of this cardigan and the waterfall neckline was different. However, this cardigan was super huge and the sleeves went past my hands by a good 3-4 inches. I have plenty of black cardigans already, so had this come in a color (this is available in a coral, burgundy, turquoise, and navy) and in a smaller size (like a M or L) instead of an XL, I would have kept it. The fabric weight is more for spring/summer and don’t quite think it’s appropriate to send out to someone living in New England in the dead of winter.
This top was super soft, love an Ikat print, but the colors were all wrong. I had put I’m a size XL in my profile and after receiving this Stitch Fix, I think it’s safe to say I’m a size L in Stitch Fix. The top was too big. It comes in a navy blue and magenta pink. I would have rather that color combination than this washed out pastel number.
Pixley Edmond Chevron Print Henley Shirt | $48
This top fit really well. I liked the fabric. But HATED the colors. Orange and purple? Again, I wish the stylist would have read my profile and checked my Pinterest style board. This shirt comes in a pink and blue print, which I would have liked much better.
Market & Spruce Chaimbers Cowl Neck Knit Top | $46
I hate cowl necks. The neck was flacid like a dead fish. The top was too plain and the fabric too cheap to be worth $46. I could easily find this top for $16.99 at Marshall’s.
Market & Spruce is a brand only carried by Stitch Fix.
I was most excited about the jeans. I really needed a good pair and thought I don’t want to pay $88, it would be worth it if they fit well and were of excellent quality. I had filled out the style profile asking only for high-waisted jeans. These jeans were a mid-rise. Wish my stylist had actually read my style profile.
So, sadly there was not one item I liked enough to keep. I lost my $20 styling fee. I’m not sure if I will try a second time because I really was not impressed with the items picked for me. I really felt like they didn’t check my Pinterest style board or read my style profile. The pieces were all pretty plain and I could easily find at Marshall’s or TJ Maxx. I wish the jeans had worked out because high waisted jeans are hard to find.
