January Stitch Fix Review (Stitch Fix #14)

I say this every time: I know this is outside of my normal fitness/running blogging, but hey – its my blog, and I want to blog about my awesome clothes!  I actually managed to take semi real pictures this time! You should be proud!

Here’s how it works: You set up a style profile and you receive a box with 5 items in it.  You can choose the frequency with which you set up the box …once a month, every other month, etc.  You pay $20 to receive a box.  If you keep anything, that $20 goes toward your purchase.  If you keep all 5 items, you get a discount!  They send you anything from jewelry, to clothes to handbags. If you don’t want to keep an item, they have an envelope to send them back.

What I love about this is that I get a stylist that looks at my style profile and picks out items just for ME.  You can even link to a pinterest board so they can get inspiration and a better look into what you like.

Item Number 1 – Liverpool Rizzo Skinny Pant ($98)

I didn’t think it was possible for a stylist to be able to send me pants that fit.  Pants are so hard to get right, aren’t they? These pants are amazing.  I neglected to take a picture of them, but they are stretch black skinny pants. The length is PERFECT, no hemming needed. I kept them even though my husband might kill me for the cost.

Verdict:  Keep

Item Number 2 – Market & Spruce Wilco Solid Quilted Vest ($68)

I’ve been searching for a good vest, and this one fit the bill.  It is very comfortable, well made, and looks great on.  The olive green color would not be something I would normally go for, but it looks good with my complexion and my dark hair. I decided to keep!

Verdict: Keep

Item Number 3 – Crescent Arminta Crochet Detail Tunic ($54)

I hated this shirt right from the get go.  Its just totally not me. The print, the shape, everything. Oh well!

Verdict: Return

Item Number 4 – Pixley Amboy Raglan Sleeve Trapeze Knit Top ($48)

I wasn’t sure about this top. I tried to keep an open mind when I tried it on, but it just wasn’t flattering at all.  The hem of the shirt was just a strange profile for me.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 5 – Pixley Ivy Split Neck Print Blouse ($58)

So got this shirt in my 3rd stitch fix – March of last year.  My stylist remembered it and sent it to me in a bigger size! Yay!  I love it and I’m so happy to see it again 🙂

Verdict: Keep

Overall Impression

I would say this box was overall good.  My stylist sent me a blast from the past that I really loved.  She hit it out of the park with some PERFECT pants, and did a great job sending me a vest that I love.  The tunic was the only huge miss, as the raglan sleeve top had potential.

I find there is a tricky balance between cost and quality/fit of the items.  If I ask her to go cheaper, I find I don’t tend to like what she sends me.  If the prices increase, then the possibilities open up, and I get some really great pieces.

Despite the fact that I don’t keep everything (if I did, my husband not be a happy camper!), I really do like my stylist and most everything she sends me! The sizing has gotten much better, and almost everything fits now!
