StitchFix Review


I'm back from my bachelorette weekend in Las Vegas! And what a weekend it was. I'm going to filter through some pictures and do a recap. But first, and quickly, I wanted to post about the box I received from StitchFix as well as my thoughts since I posted about it last week.

In case you didn't read last week's post, StitckFix is a company that charges $20 to send you 5 items of clothing that suit your tastes. You can keep 0-5 of the pieces, and whatever you don't like you send back in a prepaid envelope that you can put back in your mailbox. If you keep something, you get $20 off for the styling fee you paid, but if you don't keep anything you don't get the styling fee back.

Here are the items that I received. I'm posting them all so you can see them. Some fit better than others, and my thoughts of each piece are under each photo.
Here is how they arrived, packaged neatly and nicely, with each item specially tagged with outfit ideas.
These earrings I really wasn't impressed with. They were charging $28 for them, so they're definitely going back.
This BCBGeneration dress was okay. It fit kind of funny. I probably wouldn't have posted a picture online had I not wanted to share the whole box with you, as it's a bit tight in the bottom half. I do have a newfound love for BCBGeneration I'm going to have to post about, though. I love it! This dress was $68.
I just loved this top when I pulled it out of the box. It fit well enough, and the back was so cute; the problem was that it was super see through, and any tank top underneath would have taken away from the cute straps. I wanted to love it, but at $77 it's going back. It was from Aryn K.
Interestingly enough, this dress I didn't like at all coming out of the box. I didn't like it that much once on, but I was fairly surprised that I liked it more than I thought I would. It was Toi et Moi, and it's $143. Not a keeper.
This top is also Aryn K, and it was the only piece I debated keeping. It didn't photograph well, but it was fairly cute and 100% silk. It's $75, and I've actually decided to send it back now.

Overall I was really pleased with the whole service. It came quickly, had very quality brands and items, and has nice ease of shipment. I would hate to have to take it somewhere to drop it off, but since I don't I'll definitely try another box again soon.

I love that it gets me out of my comfort zone of trying things, and I'm guessing I'll keep a thing or two in the next shipment. They did well picking out a variety of items as well as keeping the pricepoints where I asked. The shirts were a bit high, but I was pleased with the dresses. I will absolutely order another box from them. They did a great job with sizing, but I definitely don't think any one person would have perfectly fit all 5 of these items. There was some variation by brand.

I hope you enjoyed the review, and if you want to try it out, would you consider doing so through my link? I get a referral credit if you order a box to try it! If you do, let me know what you think of it. I love the idea and wish I'd thought of it!!

I think I love everything in the box but the prices are a little high for my budget! Thanks for sharing though -- I love the yellow top too the most.

You're too cute! What an interesting concept!

ALSO, filtering your Bachelorette photos? Where's the fun in that? ;)

Keep Shining,

I can't wait to hear all about your Bachelorette party, so fun!

I love that pastel striped dress, so cute. But for $143, I'd have returned it too!
