Are you familiar with Stitch Fix? Most people have at least heard of it. It’s a subscription-based model that styles clothes and accessories, and then sends them to you, for a nominal fee. The idea is that it introduces you to brands, styles, and even colors or patterns that you’d never pick for yourself.
I had always wanted to try it, but thought it was only for “normal” sizes. When discussing it with a friend who LOVES the box, I discovered that Stitch Fix actually offered plus sized styles, too. Whaaa???
Recently I had the chance to try my first Stitch Fix. Getting started was really easy. I signed up, filled put some info about the size I wear, and my height and weight, and styles I liked. The whole thing took less than 10 minutes. I was on the hunt for jeans, and had asked for date night and business casual outfits. Here’s what I got.
Stitch Fix Box Contents + Review
Yellow Sweater ($44) – When I first opened the box, this was right on top. I had a visceral reaction to it, and was like “UH NO. UGH NO!” The back had what we were calling bondage detailing, which at first I thought was awful. The more I looked at it, though, it started to grow on me. If it had been in a green or a bright blue, I probably would have kept it.
Black Sweater ($55-ish?) – This was a conundrum of a sweater. The style was a casual pullover, while the top had a very ornate lace yoke. It just didn’t go together. If it had been more fitted, or had more of a tunic shape, that would have been different. The lace was decent quality, and the knit gauge of the sweater was really nice.
Kut From the Kloth Boyfriend Jeans ($88) – These were almost a keeper. Allllmmmmoooosssstttt…. I was on the hunt for new jeans, since it can be hard to find places to buy jeans. And I liked the fit and the style of these. Buuuuttt…I already have 4 or 5 pairs of light stonewashed boyfriend jeans. Yes, there’s always room for another pair, but at $88, I really want to add something different to my wardrobe. I did, however, due to these jeans, buy a pair of Kut From The Kloth jeans in a darker wash. The shoes are Sperry Duck Boots.
Vigoss Low Rise Skinny Jeans ($80-ish) – These were just bad, all the way around. They were very skinny, and very low rise. The skinny was okay, but the low rise wasn’t. I mean, we’re talking Britney circa Slave 4 U days low rise. That’s just not a good look for pretty much anyone. The boots shown with the jeans are these $40 stiletto steals.
Necklace ($28) – It was just a eh necklace that had, like, a crescent moon shape large focal pendant. It wasn’t anything good or bad. It just was.
The items come with a little booklet that shows you how they recommend styling your pieces. There’s also a separate invoice that has the prices. Unfortunately, I misplaced both of these, so I don’t know exactly what the price was, or the brand, for the items with question marks. I know they were around that price.
Suffice it to say, I didn’t keep anything from the first Stitch Fix box I received. It’s okay, though, as we’re learning how to get along and show each other what we want, and what we need. I think the next box should be better.
