What I loved and what I sent back in my winter 2020 Stitch Fix Review!
Hey everyone, today I am doing something I have never done on my blog…A REVIEW! I thought I would do a winter 2020 Stitch Fix review since I recently received a new “fix”. So without further ado…here’s my latest fix and review
WHAT IS STITCH FIX?
Per their website, “Stitch Fix is an online styling service that delivers a truly personalized shopping experience, for you and your family.”
You create a style profile and a stylist picks out curated items for you based on this profile. The items are shipped to your door with a $20 styling fee.
Once you receive your items, you can try them on at home and send back anything you don’t want to keep in a prepaid packaging bag.
If you choose to keep any item your styling fee will be credited from the item total. If you choose to keep all of the items, your styling fee is credited and you get a 25% discount off the entire purchase.
Depending on what your style profile is you can receive items such as clothing, coats, shoes, handbags, and jewelry.
MY PREVIOUS STITCH FIX EXPERIENCE
I tried Stitch Fix several years ago when subscription clothing services first became a thing. Although I enjoyed receiving new clothing every few months, I canceled the service. Not because I didn’t like it, but at the time the cost was out of my budget.
However, this year I started testing out subscription services again. Before going back to Stitch Fix I received two shipments from Nordstrom’s Trunk Club.
Although I did like Trunk Club, I canceled the scheduled shipments to try Stitch Fix again.
I may schedule another Trunk Club shipment for review purposes later in 2020.
WINTER 2020 STITCH FIX
I received 5 items in this fix.
The boots I received are shown in the images below with other items I received.
I was not able to model the skinny jeans. Keep reading to find out why.
Overall I enjoyed everything that was sent and felt that it was really on point for my style.
Knotted Olive Green Striped Tee//Nine Briton//$34
Pros: I love stripes and olive green so I was super excited about this when I opened the box.
Cons: The material was stretchy and thin which I didn’t like. I also wasn’t a fan of the knot on the front.
Verdict: I returned this because after trying it on it just felt boring and didn’t really add to my wardrobe.
Black Lace-Up Combat Boots//DV8//$99
Pros: They look cute.
Cons: Very small width and tight across the foot. They feel and look cheap for the price tag.
Verdict: I returned these boots because they were definitely not built for the high price tag. They also were uncomfortable and didn’t fit well.
Burnt Orange Cardigan//Market & Spruce//$68
Pros: I love burnt orange! Burnt orange is a color I keep in my wardrobe palette. The pockets of the cardigan are deep and unique in design.
Cons: Didn’t have one.
Verdict: I kept this item. This is the only thing I kept out of the whole fix and already wore it once. You can check out the outfit with the cardigan on my Instagram.
Pros: Soft and comfy.
Cons: Sleeves were too long. The colors were too bright for my palette.
Verdict: I returned this because it didn’t work for my wardrobe. I thought it was really cute but the bold colors were not my thing.
Stiletto High Rise Skinny Jeans//Sam Edelman//$88
Pros: I liked the wash of these jeans.
Cons: They were way too small!! My least favorite item out of the whole fix.
Verdict: I returned these jeans because they didn’t fit at all. I wear a size 16/34 in Gap, Express, and Madewell so I expected these jeans to fit. When I put them up against my other jeans from the above-mentioned brands they were 1 – 2 inches smaller. Yikes…
This is now my second fix of the year. After receiving this fix I canceled the automatic shipments. Again, I canceled due to budgeting and financial priorities. We are trying to save to buy a house and I don’t need any clothing right now so I couldn’t justify automatic shipments.
Although I canceled all of my clothing subscription services, I still like the idea of getting a surprise batch of clothing shipped to you.
I would definitely recommend Stitch Fix to anyone who just wants a few fresh pieces of clothing every season at an affordable price.
Most importantly, Stitch Fix is super convenient since you get the items shipped right to you and can easily return what you do not like.
