I Tried Stitch Fix

In case you didn’t know, Stitch Fix is a service where you have an online stylist that picks out your clothing and sends it straight to your door.

I blame my sister for this…

and half of a sleeping pill. 🤪

Here’s what happened.

My sister thought I should be a stylist for this company. So one night, when I had trouble sleeping, I decided to go on their website and see what was up. They actually did have stylist jobs available, just not here in Vegas.

Well, one thing led to another, including that half of a sleeping pill and the next thing I knew, I had a Stitch Fix scheduled. 🤔🤣

For a $20 styling fee you get three months of ‘fixes’. Usually it’s $20 each month but they have to get to know your style so they give you a break in price at the beginning.

So, I went online and filled out the style questionnaire and then they show you a bunch of clothes and you rate them and that’s how they determine your style. I said I liked patterns and really unique items.

What I discovered is that the clothing they style you in is pretty basic. I mean, it’s good quality but nothing makes you say ‘WOW’! You also put down the price you are willing to spend but ‘not more than $5’ wasn’t an option. 🤣

Here’s what came in my first ‘stitch fix’.

This jacket was super cozy AND had pockets, but it was too tight.

I like the polka dots, but the shirt didn’t really do anything for me.

I REALLY loved the pattern on this top, but it was too big.

Originally, I had put down that I was a size 8 in jeans, but then I got real with myself and put down a size 10.

Apparently my stylist didn’t get the memo because she sent me an 8.

They also sent me this lightweight sweater.

I ended up buying this, because I didn’t want to lose out on the $20 styling fee. I thought it was green, but it turns out, it’s more of a teal.

Side note : The lighting in my bedroom is nonexistent. I’m always surprised when I walk outside and see the true color of what I’m wearing. 😜

You also get to add in ‘extra’s if you want, so I added in this. I’ve heard so much about these Free People bralettes, so I was super excited to give it a try.

Umm…let’s just say it was a no and leave it at that.

They also send you styling suggestions for each item.

And of course, they send you the invoice.

Notice the 25% off discount if you purchase everything they send you.I guess that’s not a bad deal.

I forgot to mention, you only have three business days to decide what you want to keep and what you are sending back. Personally, I think that is too quick of a turnaround. I mean, Amazon Wardrobe gives you a whole week to decide.

My next ‘fix’ is coming on December 5th. This time around, I told my stylist that I’m only interested in athleisure wear.

I’ll be sure and share with you what she sends.

Have you tried Stitch Fix?

  1. I tried Stitch Fix, but everything they sent me either didn’t fit or I didn’t like it. Some of the things they sent did not fit my style profile at all. I had better luck with Nordstrom’s Trunk Club. They actually sent things I liked. But some of the things were a little pricey.

    1. I agree about the style profile. It’s like my stylist didn’t even look at it. We shall see what happens in this next ‘fix’. I’ll have to look into Nordstrom’s Trunk Club.

  2. I was not impressed with STITCH FIX. But thank you Darlene… for trying them and then giving your thoughts on what they, as a company, are offering. If given the challenge, I bet I could shop the thrift stores and come up with second-hand alternatives to the clothing they are offering for just a fraction of that their total cost (including the 25% discount. First off, If a person is perfectly honest about sizes, then the items sent should fit — period!
    Second, you taste was not represented by the items picked for you. Third, their practice of not offering more time to send back what you do not want is very short.

    1. I agree with everything you are saying! When I lived in Albuquerque, my business was styling people at the thrift store. I found my clients complete wardrobes for $200 and the pieces were higher quality and more unique.

  3. I have never tried Stitch Fix. I read or watched videos that said they get some of their stuff from Nordstrom Rack. No clue if it’s true or not. I was wanting to try Nordstrom Trunk Club. I got an email from Nordstrom that says from the 16th to the 25th there is once chance to win $3000 for signing up. I think it would be hard to have an online stylist cuz of fit issues.

  4. I’ve never tried stitch fix, it sounds fun but I agree with Dee…I can find much better quality and deals at thrift stores. Guess I’m just too cheap!! Lol

  5. I really liked that jacket and that one print shirt you said was too big. Maybe if you like them enough (and I probably liked that jacket enough but maybe not $50 since it’s not a real jacket), you could ask for them to send the correct size? I’m with you, though – it all seems too expensive (especially if they expect you to buy several pieces). I know I’ve loved the looks some of the other bloggers have styled so maybe if you stick with it long enough, they finally dial it in and do well. I just can’t imagine spending $100 or $200 a month on clothes :/ I’d love to, but it ain’t going to happen. But I’d still like to try it a few times. I usually go to bed right after I take a sleeping pill (I just take 1/2 of one, too). It’s safer.

    1. You know, I don’t know if exchanging it for another size is even an option. I’ll have to pay closer attention next time. I plan on doing it for the three times and then I’m done. I have too many clothes!!!
