I’ve always been hesitant to try Stitch Fix. I’m scared something I couldn’t afford or didn’t want would somehow get damaged and I wouldn’t be able to send it back. The whole idea of it makes me anxious.
On top of that the styles I usually see in photos of what Stitch Fix sends just aren’t my style at all. At its most casual my style consists of cotton tank tops and jeans and its least casual leans heavily toward punk and goth. The flowery dresses and peasant tops I see so many of in Stitch Fix reviews wouldn’t exactly go with my prison style tattoos (my tattoos are mostly black line drawings and words).
But I am currently visiting a friend in Chicago and she had recently subscribed to Stitch Fix. She received her first box not long after I arrived.
The items she received were pretty different from most of the reviews I have seen. So, my conclusion now is that most reviewers have very similar taste in clothes or at least give similar answers to the style quiz.
Market and Spruce Polka Dot Top $48
This top actually looks a lot like things she owns already. We both agreed it fit her style but was similar to things she had and that she could buy one almost identical for less money than this one costs. So while it was on point style wise it just wasn’t a good buy at the price they wanted.
Crescent Print Tank Top $44
She really liked this tank top for the most part and almost decided to keep it but their was a design choice where the design doesn’t quite match up at the center that she found annoying. So, it wasn’t a keeper but again was on point with her style.
Tart Maxi Dress $98
She specifically wanted items that she didn’t already own a lot of. So a maxi dress was perfect as she doesn’t own one at all. She is still considering whether to keep this or not just because of the price but it was definitely a hit with style and items she was looking for.
I haven’t ever seen jeans in Stitch Fix reviews. So I was more curious about maybe trying to out myself after seeing that they do sometimes send jeans.
Market and Spruce Cargo Jacket $88
The jacket was the item I liked the best and it’s the one she wanted to keep the most and probably will keep. It isn’t a thick jacket but it seems like a good summer jacket (in Chicago) or fall jacket in NC/SC.
That was her May Stitch Fix. I’m considering signing up myself but I haven’t decided for sure. All of the clothes are out of my budget really. I do want to try it though. I’m curious if they can actually match my style.
If you are interested in trying Stitch Fix you can do so at http://stitchfix.com/referral/7956245. It costs a $20 styling fee and then you get items in the mail and choose what you want to keep. You are charged for what you decide to keep but the $20 fee is also applied toward any item you keep. If you keep everything you also get an extra discount.
If you get Stitch Fix feel free to post what kind of items you get. I’m really curious how much they vary.
