Although I took a mini break from Stitch Fix, I’m still a huge fan! I received my latest Fix for February this past week. I was thrilled to finally see a box staring at me from my front doorstep! Not to mention it arrived on my son’s birthday as a sort of “gift” for me. After all, I did all the work that day. That deserves a gift, right?
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT STITCH FIX…
Before I reveal what I received this month, here are a few things about Stitch Fix and how it all works in case you haven’t had the pleasure of getting a Fix yet:
1. You get started by filling out your style profile – you will answer all sorts of questions about sizing, pricing, preferences, colors, etc. Be as specific as possible…I can’t stress this enough. Make sure to link to your fashion board on Pinterest so your stylist can see what you like! (I have received exact items that I have pinned.)
2. Order your first fix. Your credit card will be charged a $20 styling fee, but if you keep any item (one or more) you will be credited back the $20. That’s why it makes sense to keep at least one item from each Fix because you’re getting a $20 discount right off the bat! SCORE! You will receive 5 items in each Fix (this will be clothing, jewelry, handbags, or shoes). I let my stylist know with each individual Fix what I want to see.
3. Go through your Fix. Decide what you want to keep and what you want to send back (they provide a postage free envelope for returns). You have 3 business days to make up your mind (I usually decide in like 5 mins.). And get this: if you keep all 5 items, you receive 25% off your entire Fix! It can’t get any better than that!
I enjoy receiving monthly Fixes, but lately, I’ve been getting them every 2 months or so. You can choose to get one once every 2-3 weeks, every month, every other month, every 3 months or on demand…completely your choice so you don’t have to feel obligated. Just manage your frequency on your account.
SO LET’S GET INTO MY LATEST FIX!
Dear John Dalba Bomber Jacket ($88)
I’m always down to step up my jacket game. I don’t really have fun jackets that can go from casual to a little more dressy. This bomber jacket is not only an awesome color, but it’s so lightweight that it’s perfect for Miami. Yes, I get cold here…especially inside places with air conditioning. LOL! Definitely a keeper!
Le Lis Sibley Twisted Knot Top ($44)
I have a pooch. I always have. It’s not necessarily my favorite part of my body, so I like to hide it. The placement of the twist in this top is perfect! It’s such a fun top that can be dressed up or down and still hides my “mommy tummy.” Kept this one for sure!
Collective Concepts Amabell Dress ($78)
The colors of this dress are great! The navy, burnt orange, teal, and greens go so well together. Sleeveless is a style that is ideal for living in South Florida. I can throw the bomber jacket over it for a more casual feel or a cute cardigan for a dressier look. (I told you, I’m always cold.) This dress is cinched at the waist which is the perfect style for my body type. Not to mention, I like wearing dresses to change up my style from shorts. Keeper!
Just USA Janelle Destroyed Cuffed Crop Straight Leg Jeans ($58)
I LOVE jeans! I seriously wear them all the time. I can dress them up, I can wear them with sneakers and a t-shirt. Throw some holes in those jeans and I’m in love! These jeans are perfect for the twisted knot top and the bomber jacket for sure. I love when my fixes all mesh well together. Kept for sure!
Report Footwear Veanne Perforated Peep Toe Bootie ($65)
OMG! These booties are so fun! They have a great heel for this short girly. I love that they are peep-toed and have zippers on both sides. I’m not sure how I’ll wear them. I don’t think I’m the kind of girl to wear these with a dress. I don’t think I can pull that off. Anyway, I’m keeping them anyway.
I’ve told you before that I don’t look at the prices when I try on the items. I want to make a real decision without being swayed by the price tag. The best part is if I kept all 5 items in this Fix, I got 25% off plus my styling fee credit of $20. In this particular Fix, I saved $83.25 for keeping all five items (I told you sometimes it’s just cheaper to keep all five) and my $20 styling fee credit.
Keep in mind, when I filled out my Stitch Fix profile, I changed my price point. I chose “the cheaper, the better” price point for my clothes. There is also the option for $50-100, $100-150, $150-200 and you can also range your prices from $200+. You choose.
I just got my 1st Stitch Fix box. I can’t believe how much I like the clothes!!! You are so right about saving money by keeping all 5 DESIGNER pieces, if you love them of course!
