I wasn’t going to schedule a new Fix for a few months. Then I caved a bit and scheduled it for the end of March. While I was browsing on Pinterest recently, I saw a bunch of fun new styles that I just had to have, so I moved my scheduled date to this week! I really have an addiction to this service…I may need to go to SFA (Stitch Fix Annonymous)!
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 your first Fix yet:
1. First things first you need to begin 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 only when the package is sent to you. If you keep any item (one or more) from your Fix, 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 an extra 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. And don’t forget that you won’t be charged the $20 Fix fee until the box is being shipped. Just manage your frequency on your account.
SO LET’S GET INTO MY LATEST FIX!
Daniel Rainn Angelyne Button Back Top ($64)
The first thing that struck me about this top was the color! I love bright colors (even though I am usually in gray or black). The detail on the neckline is so feminine and there are buttons down the back…”Miss Mary Mack!” This top would go great with shorts, a skirt, jeans, or a nice pair of pants. I am keeping this one for sure!
RD Style Novalli Split Back Knit Top ($48)
Since I am usually in casual clothes, this top fits my style. I like that it’s not just a boring gray, but also has light blue and off-white. It is so soft and comfy! Although I do like split backs on people, it’s not a style for me. My back is nowhere near tight enough and my hips really pull this top apart. I am sending this one back.
Renee C Aniya Racerback Top ($38)
I’m in love with the pattern and bold colors of this top! My stylist Katherine knows that I adore tops like this. I can’t wait to pair this one with skinny jeans and heels for a night out with my hubby or the girls! If you haven’t noticed already, I’m keeping this top! Now I need to go work on my arms a bit…
Papermoon Dani Cold Shoulder Knit Top ($34)
I mentioned in my video reveal that I’m not a huge fan of these open shoulder tops. There’s something about them…are you off the shoulder, do you have sleeves? Make up your mind! I was willing to give this top a chance because the fabric is so soft and I really liked the detail at the bottom. Unfortunately, this top did nothing for me or my ever increasing figure. Going back.
Report Footwear Morgan Grommet Wedge ($60)
I have been wanting to re-do my sandal collection. Living in Miami, sandals are our everyday footwear, therefore I wear mine out. I hate to see some of my favorites go, but it’s time. I was so excited to see sandals in my Fix! First off, I love that they’re black. The zipper in the back make them easy to put on and the gold grommets are a fun twist. The wedge heel isn’t huge so I can wear these with shorts or a fun night out. KEEPING!
STITCH FIX: THE REAL DEAL
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 could have saved $61 for keeping all five items (I told you sometimes it’s just cheaper to keep all five) and my $20 styling fee credit. Since I’m returning two items, I didn’t get the $61 off.
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.
