Stitch Fix Review #3

Sad news.  Most of the items in my box didn't work for me this time around:(  I had the same stylist as my past two fixes, and I feel like she tried to listen to what I asked for in my note that I wrote her.  I asked for some things to wear on our beach trip and I specifically requested distressed denim, because I have been wanting some for a long time.  Even though it wasn't as successful as my last fix, I still feel like I learned a lot about my personal style through the process.

Some quick facts about Stitch Fix:

-The styling fee is $20 per fix.  The $20 is deducted from the price of any item(s) that you purchase in that fix.
-You can specify your price range for the items that you receive.  You can also specify how often you want to receive a fix.
-You will receive 5 items that are hand-picked for you by your stylist, using the style profile that you will fill out upon signing up.  You can decide to purchase them all, just a few items, or to send them all back if you don't want to keep any of them.
-You have 3 business days to choose what you want to keep and send back what you don't like.  They give you a prepaid shipping envelope that you can just pop in your mailbox (so easy!).
-If you choose to keep all 5 items, you get 25% off your entire order.
-You can earn $25 in credit for every friend that uses your link to schedule their fix.  Its a win-win!

My Fix:

Lexia Distressed Skinny Jean and 41 Hawthorn Filbert 3/4 Sleeve Popover Blouse

These jeans were a little too small.  I have been losing weight and I wasn't sure what size to put in my style profile, but I think they may run a little small.  Also, they were WAY too expensive for me.  This was a good learning opportunity for me and my stylist because I made sure that I let her know that I won't pay that much for jeans:) Ever. 
I liked the way this top looked and fit, but I am not a fan of plain white shirts.  Plus, I felt like the style was a little too stuffy for my beach trip.
Verdict: Sent back.

Sweet Rain Jefferson Overlay Blouse

The pattern on this shirt was SO cute.  I loved the colors, and I specifically asked for shirts with cool back details, so my stylist really tried on this one.  However, one problem with this shirt was that it was too small.  The bigger problem was that it was sheer in the front and it had to be worn with a tank top underneath.  The tank top made the back detail look really strange.  It just didn't work.  I wish the pink underlay would have been on both the front and the back.
Verdict: Sent back.

Skies are Blue Calvin Halter Blouse

When I saw that I was getting a halter blouse in my fix, I was a little worried.  I mean, this girl isn't wearing a halter top unless its on a bathing suit.  Fortunately for me, I discovered that this is not a traditional halter and I learned that I really like this style of top.  This shirt was a great price, excellent quality and fit really well.  Unfortunately, I did not like the Asian-inspired pattern and the v-neck enough to keep it.
Verdict: Sent back.

Fun2Fun Alannah Henley Blouse

This top was pretty, and it fit really well.  I liked it, but I didn't LOVE it.  It was a good price, so I kept it so that I wouldn't lose my styling fee.  I have listed it to sell, so let me know if you are interested!
Verdict: Kept, but listed to sell.

I know.  Whomp whomp.  But you know what?  I'm not discouraged.  I am learning that part of what Stitch Fix is all about is helping you find your personal style.  Even though I struck out on this fix, I am still really happy with what I learned about my style in the process.  I am ready and excited for my next fix, which is coming in a couple of weeks!

What did you think?  Did I make the right choices?
