Stitch Fix #6 (May 2014) Review

My Stitch Fix #6 arrived in the mail yesterday!!  This is by far my favorite subscription box to receive each month!

THE PREVIEW:

SFandBBManApr14 022

If I keep everything in my box, it will cost me $162 with the $20 styling fee and the 25% discount!

THE COST:

$20 a month styling fee – then the cost of clothing (read more here).

THE GOODS:

Best part about Stitch Fix is the styling cards they send with each item – really helps inept people such as myself with how to wear said items!

SFandBBManApr14 014

Bella Boutique Gabrielle Mini Horseshoe Charm Necklace – $44

Uh yeah – I don’t think I would have even kept this necklace if it was free… not a fan.

Verdict = Returned

SFandBBManApr14 018SFandBBManApr14 017

Mak Jaclynn 3/4 Sleeve Button-Up Cardigan – $38

Loved the price point on this item – and even better that I had one of the items they recommended wearing this with on the style card!

Verdict = Kept!

SFandBBManApr14 0192014-04-30 SFandBBManApr14

Renee C Wilfred Abstract Print Tank – $48

Holy unflattering!  I felt like I was wearing a mu-mu… blech!

Verdict = Returned

SFandBBManApr14 020SFandBBManApr14 009

Pomelo Cherise Cotton Tab Sleeve Henley Shirt – $58

I really was on the fence with this shirt… I didn’t hate, just didn’t love enough to keep for $58…

Verdict = Returned

SFandBBManApr14 021SFandBBManApr14 015

Ezra Enzo Grid Print Mixed Material Raglan Top – $48

I wasn’t too sure about this top either – but the longer I had it on, the longer I liked it!  It’s so different then anything else I own!

Verdict = Kept!

THE VERDICT:

Well I was pretty happy about this month’s fix.  Coming down off the high of last month’s perfect fix, this one was a little more disappointing… but still LOVE nevertheless!  I decided to keep 2 tops and will end up paying $66 (after my styling fee is discounted!)  I think Natalie did a great job again this month in finding tops at the perfect price point! Can’t wait for my next Stitch Fix!

Stitch Fix #5 (April 2014) Review

My Stitch Fix #5 arrived in the mail today!!!!  This is by far my favorite subscription box to receive each month!

THE PREVIEW:

StitchFix#5 017

If I keep everything in my box, it will cost me $240- a little on the high side, but considering the denim jacket, jeans and maxi – probably worth it 😉

THE COST:

$20 a month styling fee – then the cost of clothing (read more here).

THE GOODS:

Best part about Stitch Fix is the styling cards they send with each item – really helps inept people such as myself with how to wear said items!

StitchFix#5 021StitchFix#5 014

First up was the 41 Hawthorn Asha Chevron Print Infinity Scarf – $28

Oh my goodness I love this scarf!  I just wish it had actually come with a styling card, as the best I could come up with to pair it with was a black tee shirt!  I will have to play around with this one to see what I like it with in my wardrobe!

Verdict = Kept!

StitchFix#5 020StitchFix#5 010

StitchFix#5 022StitchFix#5 011

Next up was the Pomelo Fiona Embroidery Detail Striped Maxi Dress – $78 and the Mavi Kalie Denim Jacket – $98

I LOVED this dress, everything about it, except the material was a little bit on the thin side, which I decided wouldn’t really matter come summer time.

And the denim jacket.  Oh my goodness that denim jacket!  I’ve been dreaming about owning on of these (even requested in my last Fix, but must have gotten my request in too late – was a last minute addition).  Let’s just say, I’m ready to rock a summer night party somewhere!

Verdict – KEPT and DOUBLE KEPT!!

(p.s. don’t mind all of the Daisy photo bombs… although the one of her licking is pretty hilarious!)

StitchFix#5 019

StitchFix#5 018StitchFix#5 004

And last up was the Tart – Brigitte Striped Raglan Thermal Top – $58 and the Kut From the Kloth Denna Colored Skinny Jeans – $78

So hilarious thing about this top is I just sent Husband to the store yesterday to buy me a top I saw in the Target ad that I had to own, are you ready for it?  Here it is (with the tags still on):

StitchFix#5 005

and here’s them side by side: StitchFix#5 008

The difference?  The Target top actually fit better, and was only $9!  Ha!  BUT… since I was LOVING the colored jeans (still wearing them actually!) and everything else in this fix, it was actually cheaper for me to keep the duplicate top (I’ll be keeping the Target version also – planning on rocking this colorful ensemble sometime soon!) even thought it wasn’t a perfect fit.  And I’m sure I’ll wear it also – just more for lounge days!

Verdict = KEPT AND KEPT AGAIN!

THE VERDICT:

Are you ready for it?!  Can I get a HALLELUJAH?!  I finally found my perfect fix!!!  The only item I wasn’t 100% over the moon with was the thermal top, and only because I had one that fit slightly better that I had just purchased myself.  How funny is that?!  To say my stylist hit it out of the park isn’t even good enough!!  I ended up paying a total of $240 to keep everything (I know… still crying a little over that one…) BUT because I kept everything, I saved $80!  Can I get a whoop whoop!?  I’m considering the jeans I’m wearing as free right now – and that’s amazing!  Let’s just saying I’ll be requesting my stylist Natalie again next month for my Stitch Fix #6 (May).  And the funniest part?  She was a sub from the person I originally requested!  HA!

Stitch Fix #4 (March 2014) Review

My Stitch Fix #4 arrived in the mail today!!!!  This is by far my favorite subscription box to receive each month!

THE PREVIEW:

Fix#4Mar14 007

If I kept everything in my box, it would have cost me $210.  That’s better then the prices from last fix!

THE COST:

$20 a month styling fee – then the cost of clothing (read more here).

THE GOODS:

Best part about Stitch Fix is the styling cards they send with each item – really helps inept people such as myself with how to wear said items!

Fix#4Mar14 009Fix#4Mar14 002

First up was the Pomelo Florence Colorblocked Dress – $68

LOVED this dress!! It fit PERFECTLY!  I don’t have much else to say but YAY!

(p.s., I’m determined that I MUST own a jean jacket now … let’s hope one arrives in next month’s box!)

Verdict = Kept!

Fix#4Mar14 010Fix#4Mar14 004

Next up was the Mystree Wisteria Weave Detail Knit Tank – $48

I hemmed and hawed about this top a lot… I think that maybe if it was a size smaller I would have liked it better?  I’m just not sure though – I’m horrible with flowy type tops.  I just didn’t $48 love it though, so back it went.

Verdict = Sent Back

 Fix#4Mar14 011Fix#4Mar14 003

Next item was the Collective Concepts Indy Keyhole Tribal Print Tank – $68

Not going to lie, I just about broke my nose trying to get into this top (OK, maybe I’m being a little melodramatic), but let’s just say Stitch Fix has a healthy amount of make-up to clean up after.  I can’t believe this shirt had such a tight neckline (with NO give) and didn’t have a clasp!  I checked like three times too just to make sure…

Verdict = Sent Back

 Fix#4Mar14 013Fix#4Mar14 005

Next up was the Le Sample Kahlo Embroidered Racerback Tank – $48

I actually really liked the detail on this shirt – but turns out it’s one of those hi-low shirts.  I felt ridiculous.  Sad, I wanted to love this when seeing the neck detail.  Guess it just wasn’t meant to be.

Verdict = Sent Back

Fix#4Mar14 012Fix#4Mar14 001

 And last up – the 41Hawthorn Madox Tribal Print Fit and Flare Dress – $68

I am SOO glad that I got this dress!! I had seen it in another fix and thought, “this dress would be perfect for Mexico!”  Ah!  It’s a tad big, but not enough to not want to keep it!  I actually did like the fit of the colorblock dress better, but this dress’ print won me over!

Verdict = Kept!

THE VERDICT:

Again, I’m loving this service!  I found two dresses that I absolutely loved in this  month’s box!  I ended up paying $116 for the two dresses (after deducting the styling fee) – not too bad!  It is sad that none of the tank tops and me got along, but here’s hoping that next month is box where I get to keep everything and take the 25% off!  I am now signed up for monthly deliveries, so I cannot wait until my April box (Fix #5) arrives!

Stitch Fix #3 (January 2014) Review

My Stitch Fix #3 arrived in the mail today!!!!  This is by far my favorite subscription box to receive each month!

THE PREVIEW:

Jan14BB,BB5,SF 032

If I kept everything in my box, it would have cost me $262.50.  I feel like my person got a bit out of control on the high prices this time…

THE COST:

$20 a month styling fee – then the cost of clothing (read more here).

THE GOODS:

Best part about Stitch Fix is the styling cards they send with each item – really helps inept people such as myself with how to wear said items!

Jan14BB,BB5,SF 030 Jan14BB,BB5,SF 018

First up was the Mystree Dalton Mixed-Material Button-Up Shirt – $28

Loved the price of this item, HATED it otherwise!  Talk about frumpy.

Verdict = Sent Back

Jan14BB,BB5,SF 028

Jan14BB,BB5,SF 016 Jan14BB,BB5,SF 017

Next up was the Mia Melon Paloma Striped Short Sleeve Cut-Out Top – $58

This shirt was just so unique that I had to keep.  It fit me well (the back picture is bunched a little) and was just different then anything else I own!  I should have tucked the tags in the back photo… next time 🙂

Verdict = Kept!!

Jan14BB,BB5,SF 027 Jan14BB,BB5,SF 019

Next item was the 41Hawthorn Abrianna Longsleeve Knit Cardigan – $48

LOVED this cardigan!  Totally up my alley.  Not really different then what I currently have in the wardrobe, but loved it!

Verdict = Kept!

Jan14BB,BB5,SF 026 Jan14BB,BB5,SF 022

Next up was the Sanctuary Daria Striped French Terry Fitted Dress – $88

While this dress fit fine, I just didn’t love it.  Wasn’t certain where I would ever wear it, plus the price was just a little high for me.

Verdict = Sent Back

Jan14BB,BB5,SF 029

 And last up – the Crosby Cally Skinny Jean – $148 (Pictured on above)

I wasn’t too excited to see another pair of skinny jeans in my box (kept the ones from last month) especially at $148!  Eeek!  Plus I think the jeans I kept last month fit better (at $88).

Verdict = Sent Back

THE VERDICT:

Again, I’m loving this service!  While this month’s box fell a little short for me, I did find two pieces that I LOVE!  (Was hoping for that box where I got to keep everything and take advantage of the 25% off!)  I think I may sign up for monthly deliveries from now on (have been going month by month for awhile)!

Stitch Fix #2 (December 2013) Review

Sooo excited my Stitch Fix #2 arrived yesterday – what perfect timing since we were on our way out to a holiday party!  Therefore, I had something to wear!  Whoop!

THE PREVIEW:

dec box1 012

If I kept everything in my box, it would have cost me $225.  A little high for 5 items – but not too bad if I had loved them all.

THE COST:

$20 a month styling fee – then the cost of clothing (read more here).

THE GOODS:

Best part about Stitch Fix is the styling cards they send with each item – really helps inept people such as myself with how to wear said items!  Sorry I cut off the names a little…

dec box1 009

dec box1 004

First up was the Kensie Kormann Drape Front Open Cardigan – $78

Sorry for the lack of quality in the picture – may need to fire my camera man (Husband – LOL!)  Basically, this cardigan just didn’t lay right on me… Kind of hung out away from my body all weird.  Not that you can really tell… but anyway, based on the way it draped and the cost, back in the box it went!

Verdict = Sent Back

dec box1 003

Next up was the Zouk Giselli Chevron Print Sleeveless Dress – $58

The one thing I had requested when scheduling my December fix was a dress for my work holiday party.  When I first opened the box, I was a little disappointed that I only had one option, but it turned out it didn’t matter one bit as I LOVE this dress!!! I plan to wear as shown + tights and a cardigan (it’s freaking cold in MN)!

Verdict = Kept!!

dec box1 002

Next item was the Renee Walden Stripe & Colorblock Knit Shirt – $38

I didn’t mind this shirt – was actually pretty close to my style, I just didn’t love it.  If I hadn’t found anything else in my box to keep, I probably would have kept it just to not lose my styling fee, but just wasn’t in love.  P.S. I loved the price point of this item, but what do you do…

Verdict = Sent Back

dec box1 001

Next up was the 41 Hawthorn Filbert 3/4 Sleeve Popover Blouse – $58

I struggled with this blouse, I think it looked OK on – but I kept fidgeting with it.  I am of the mindset that clothes should be comfortable and for some reason this one just wasn’t jiving with me.

Verdict = Sent Back

dec box1 006

And last up – the Just Black Adora Skinny Jean – $88

Alright – so I tried these on, said, “holy crap these are tight and I feel pored into them.”  Took them off, and put them to the side.  Then I took a shower and started to get ready for a holiday part we had last night, and realized, hm… those jeans that I just got would look really good with some boots… so, the jeans came back out of the box, and they stayed on!  (p.s. Husband said they looked good on too, so bonus!)  Well played Stitch Fix on the timing of your box!

Verdict = Kept!

THE VERDICT:

Again, I’m loving this service!  The best part, I don’t have to go to the mall and shop for 4+ hours to find a dress to wear to my holiday part next week AND they saved me from the holiday party this week with the skinny jeans!  I will end up paying $126 for both the skinny jeans and dress (already paid the $20 styling fee).  IF I had loved the other three items in my box, they would have only cost me $99 more for 3 additional pieces!  I can’t wait until I get a fix where I love all items and can take advantage of the 25% off!!

I did like this month’s fix better then last – I feel like they are getting to know my style a little more!  Yes, I do pay more for clothing through Stitch Fix, but I DON’T HAVE TO SHOP FOR MYSELF!  Whoop!

Stitch Fix #1 (November 2013) Review

Ahh!  My long awaited Stitch Fix #1 arrived today!!  I dove right into the box!  Without further adieu –

The Preview:

DSC02423

If I kept everything in my box, it would have cost me $198.  Not too bad for 5 items (if I loved them all).

The Cost:

$20 a month styling fee – then the cost of clothing (read more here).

The Goods:

DSC02424

First up was the LA Made Aussen Zip-Up Collared Knit Cardigan – $68

DSC02412DSC02413

I wanted to love this item – here in MN we just got our first snow yesterday.  What a perfect sweater for winter, right?  I tried a similar look to the first photo in the style card – but basically the sweater was just way too baggy on me and I couldn’t get it to look right (kept fidgeting with it).  Don’t get me wrong, I love comfy and baggy, but not when I’m paying $68 and would have to leave the house in it.  This item is going back. (p.s., that is a Barney photo bomb.)

DSC02425

Next up was the Tobias Crew Neck Knit Sweater – $98

DSC02415

I knew I was going to love this sweater when I pulled it out of the box – then I saw the price card and was determined that I would find something else in the fix that I liked better and this could go back…  No such luck, I had to keep this.  It was perfect.

DSC02417

Next item was the 41 Hawthorn (Stitch Fix‘s brand) Cubes Arc Necklace – $32

Overall – this necklace was OK.  If I hadn’t fallen in love with the sweater, I may have kept it just so I wouldn’t lose my styling fee.  Just didn’t really like the forced curvature to the necklace (seemed a little funny on me).  This item is going back.

DSC02426

Next up was the 41 Hawthron Bixby Swan Print 3/4 Sleeve Blouse – $48

DSC02418

This item was my stylist’s “favorite” – I wasn’t too certain when I tried it on – but it actually looked nice when put together (Husband said I looked good).  The only problem – it was too tight across the shoulders, I felt like I was going to rip it if I bent the wrong way!  The fabric had absolutely no give whatsoever (silk?)  I don’t like being constricted by clothing – this is going back.

DSC02427

and last was the Chris & Carol Strathmore Striped Hi-Lo Knit Shirt – $38

DSC02419DSC02420

I literally felt like I was wearing a pajama shirt!  While it was nice and soft, it was WAY too long!! I think that may be the intent of this shirt, but TOTALLY not for me.  The dog was even wondering what was going on!  This immediately went back in the box.

The Verdict:

Overall, I was fairly impressed with my first Stitch Fix.  While I ended up sending back 4 of the items, I LOVE the sweater!! And I would have never purchased this in the store (would have walked away after seeing the price tag).  While I didn’t really go out of my comfort zone much (perhaps part of the reason for scheduling my “fix”), I think the style cards will help me put outfits together with pieces that are already in my wardrobe.

Overall – I’m in love and will be scheduling my next fix soon!  I can’t wait until I get a fix where I love all items and can take advantage of the 25% off!!  Just think, I ended up paying $78 for one item (with the $20 styling fee deducted), had I loved everything, it would have only been $120 more for 4 more pieces!

Oh also, I received a $50 gift card for nakedwines.com – don’t think I’ll use it as we aren’t big wine drinkers, but a nice touch, nevertheless.
