Stitch Fix Review: A Great Service

I've read about Stitch Fix from some friends and bloggers, but never thought I'd try it out for myself because I love the thrill of searching for treasures in stores. Then I got a Klout Perk for $20 off and figured I'd give it a try. There's a "styling fee" of $20 each time, but you get that much in credit toward the purchase. So I figured I'd either get $20 off something or just send everything back with nothing paid out of pocket.

This morning, I got an email from Stitch Fix reminding me to return everything in a couple days. WAIT A MINUTE, IT'S SITTING ON THE PORCH NOW? I dropped my phone on the bed, throw on a robe, and grabbed the box from outside right away.

The box comes wrapped all nicely.

There's a pre-paid envelope to send back any rejects in.

There is also a card with styling ideas, and a list of the items with their prices.

This dress was the one I was most excited about. IT HAS POCKETS. I'm a sucker for dresses with pockets.

It's a good-quality weight and fit well.

Really, it fit like a dream. But I'm not in love with it for the $98 price tag, so I'll be returning it.

Then there's this top.

And these jeans. So, I commented on the survey for them not to send pants because of my derby ass and thighs. These jeans were the first item on top, and a size 14. I rolled my eyes.

But guess what? These jeans fit like a dream!

I like the top as well, but I'm keeping just the jeans. Seriously. JEANS THAT FIT.

Then there's this stretch jersey stripey dress. It's something I'd probably see in a store and like but not get around to trying on.

It's a great summer weight, and I'm dying to belt it.

This is the other keeper from the box.

Lastly, there's this dress. I died over the coral color. It's also a great summer weight.

It fit fine, but I just don't like things that are drapey on top and then gather. I want them to flow all the way down so I can add my own belt. A good styling fit for me, but I'm not in love.

Overall, I probably won't do this again because I have trouble limiting my shopping addiction as it is. But I would highly recommend that anyone try this once!

I love the first dress, but yes, $98 is a lot. Pants are hard for me to find, too, because my thighs are bigger but my waist is small. Are they a particular brand? I agree 100% about the drapey dresses. I hate elastic waist things that drape on the top. Seems like that is the "thing" right now and they annoy me so much.

Sarah, the jeans are Kenzie brand. I'm usually a 16 in pants, but these are a 14 ankle-length and I love them.
