Earlier this year, I kept hearing about Stitch Fix on Facebook and my other social networks. So, I confess that I tried this service for the first time back then.
But what intrigued enough to want to try Stitch Fix previously?
Well, I have always loved fashion and shopping. But secretly I always wished to have my very own personal shopper. Still, I couldn’t afford to pay for a personal shopper. So, this seemed like the perfect solution.
While I enjoyed my initial experience, I kept making excuses as to why I couldn’t get another “Fix”.
But then a few weeks ago, I decided that I was going to give Stitch Fix another go. Plus with the holiday season right around the corner, I thought I could find an outfit or two to wear to some upcoming get-togethers. Also, I reasoned that I could have my family gift me one or more of the items I liked, as well.
So, FYI totally recommend to all for possible holiday gift idea for yourself or a fashion forward woman or man in your life. That’s right, they also style men, too!
How does Stitch Fix work?
When you first sign up, you begin by taking an in-depth survey about your sizes, your style, and even your pricing preferences. From this survey, your personal stylist sends you 5 items to try in your “Fix”.
What is the fee for Stitch Fix?
The fee for this service is $20, and that includes free shipping and free returns.
What do you pay if you keep any or even all of your “Fix”?
You pay the item prices listed on the checkout screen. Plus as long as you keep any of the items they send you, you get to deduct the $20 fee from the total. BONUS…If you keep all five items, you also get a 25% discount!
So, let’s see what I received picked out by stylist, Laila in my Stitch “Fix”…
1. Octavia Nina Floral Print Infinity Scarf – $28
I am a huge fan of scarfs, especially infinity scarfs during the fall and winter months. This infinity scarf is a navy blue color base gold, brown and pink embellishments. Absolutely beautiful colors and goes with browns and cream colors perfectly.
2. 41Hawthorn Caulfield Textured V-Neck Pullover – $74
At first this chunky sweater seemed a bit on the larger side to me and wasn’t completely feeling it. But then I put it on the skinny jeans in this “fix” (see below), my brown boots, as well as the aforementioned infinity scarf. What I ended up realizing was I kind of liked the cut and style of this beige, cream colored sweater with the overall outfit.
3. Market & Spruce Careen Dolman Knit Top – $48
This black and grey striped sweater is perfect for leggings and/or jeans. I wore it with black leggings, my grey Ugg Sweater boots and my green khaki army style jacket. Another winning pick as this went nicely with staple pieces I already have in my wardrobe.
4. Lila Ryan Liza Skinny Jean – $98
I have been wearing leggings more and more lately. Yet, I do still like jeans. Skinny jeans seem to be the jeans that I gravitate towards when I do wear them. But it is hard for me to find skinny jeans that fit comfortably as I tend to have a smaller waist but my hips are slightly bigger. These black (almost dark navy blue) skinny jeans fit my waist comfortably and my hips, too. Plus they were cut short enough for the fact that I am on the petite side at 5’2″.
5. BRIXON IVY Lawley Cable Knit Open Cardigan – $68
I saved the best for last, as I soon as I opened the box for this “fix”, I fell in love with this grey, chunky open knit cardigan. So much so that I wore it to a a girls night out cookie swap party. That night I wore it with Lularoe Christmas Leggings. But I also recently paired it with the Liza skinny jeans and black high heeled boots. The look became a bit more classy and sophisticated. Also, I just love the wide and long pockets of this sweater. Really just so comfy and cozy!
The Verdict on this Stitch “Fix”…
So, I was originally going to send back #2 and #4 is this “fix”. But I ended up keeping all.
Because I just couldn’t part with any of these key pieces.
Plus, I basically got the skinny jeans for FREE with a $99 discount for the 25% off discount and the styling credit of $20, as well.
Also, my stylist pretty much nailed it with this box. She got my style completely and even more so than I even initially even realized. I am amazed that someone who never met or laid eyes on me before could figure out what I would like to wear. This is proof to me that the right stylist can really make the Stitch Fix experience worthy for all those naysayers.
And right now is the perfect time to give a Stitch Fix Gift Card for the perfect holiday gift.

Have you tried their service before?
Glad you had such a great Stitch Fix experience! That sweater looks super cozy, perfect for winter. And it does pair very nicely with skinny jeans 🙂
Thanks Bev and I agree this sweater is so very cozy and does totally pair perfectly with skinny jeans 🙂
I’ve been wanting to try Stitch Fix forever. You had great options there!
Thanks Dara and I am now not sure why I put off trying Stitch Fix again after my first go around. but just so glad I finally did 🙂
Jennifer Weedon Palazzo says
I’m afraid I’d always buy every single thing they send! 😉 You look great.
Jennifer, that is exactly what I just ended up doing here LOL! Thanks 🙂
Seana Turner says
My husband got me a gift certificate to this as a birthday present. It is very easy to use, and I like the quality of the clothing. They give you so many options that you can work within many budgets and styles. Not everything fits or works, but it is easy to send back. I’ve got another “Fix” coming next week and can’t wait to see what’s inside!
I love that you have tried this too and I am hoping that you get an awesome “Fix” next week now, too. But do agree they make it easy enough to send back and return if some of the pieces don’t work for you still, too 🙂
William Holland says
I don’t know much about stitches, but I know it’s snowing this morning, so I’m smiling. 🙂 Wishing you a brilliant Monday.
LOL, Bill. But the snow is something I hope stays away here for a bit longer as you know I am so not a fan. Happy Monday to you, too now once again!! 🙂
You may have convinced me… I love everything you got!
Yay, Melissa and hope you so try soon, as well as get a great “Fix”, as well 🙂
I’ve heard of Stitch Fix, and its always intrigues me. What woman doesn’t want a personal shopper, I know I do. I like the idea of not having to go shopping, sadly I don’t have time to search for clothes nowadays everything is done online and easy, peasy. It looks like Stitch Fix takes it one step future. This would be an excellent Christmas gift for someone.
Agree, Mary Stitch Fix definitely takes it one step further and truly hope you can try them hopefully soon, too!! 🙂

I have never heard of this! I would totally pay for a personal shopper if I could afford it. I HATE shopping so this sounds perfect for someone like me. You look great in your new duds : )
Thanks Sheila and I know I would seriously pay for a personal shopper if I could, too. But this is really the next best thing 🙂

I love all the clothes you got! Good additions for the winter wardrobe. And I like the idea of a stylist to help make choices. Great idea for easy shopping for a busy mom. Enjoy the new clothes and the great look! Love, Aunt Gloria
Thanks Aunt Gloria and definitely a wonderful idea for all busy moms on the go, who don’t have time to go shopping for themselves xoxo 😉
Christine Carter says
Omg Janine, you look SO CUTE in ALL of those outfits!! I just love love love them! What an incredible gift and such great additions to anyone’s wardrobe. I’m secretly coveting them all!!
Aw, Chris you should totally treat yourself!! 🙂
Look at you with the AWESOME poses! You’re gorgeous! And while I was reading, I couldn’t help but think how much I wish I knew how to use a sewing machine. LOL. I taught myself to knit, and I can mend a hole about as well as an eight year old (I can do, it, but it looks like an 8 year old did it) but still.
So in the meantime, what a fun post! That stuff looks pretty awesome. I think you might have a sideline hobby as a model! hehe.
Aw, thank you Cyndi and it was really fun to model these clothes and maybe in another life, I could totally do this. Hugs and have a wonderful Wednesday now!! 🙂
We’re twins! I’m into leggings and skinny jeans. I have a small waist but my hips got bigger after kids. I like them.. but it requires more thought into dressing. You look good in everything!
Twins for life! But seriously, thank you so much Tamara and definitely glad we can share in this, too 🙂
I’ve heard so many great things about stitch fix. This definitely looks like a fun idea. I bet my sister and stepmother would love it as a gift this year. Thanks for sharing your experience!
Happy to share and definitely again would recommend 🙂
Every body is doing Stitch Fix these days and I can see why! You look super cute! I love the jeans. I really want new clothes for Christmas, but I don’t want to hit any stores to look for them, so… how about Stitch Fix? YAY!
Aw, yay and hope you get to try Stitch Fix, soon. And thank you again, Jen!! 🙂
