StitchFix Take Two

by - Friday, May 24, 2013

Currently my arms are so sore from this morning's CrossFit class I can't lift them over my head. Should make washing my hair in the shower rather interesting...

In non-fitness news, do you remember when I tried StitchFix a while back and totally loved it?

If you're not familiar, StitchFix is a service that let's you fill out a style profile online and then they ship you several fun and fashionable pieces right to your house so you can try them on with things already in your closet. Whatever you don't like, you just pop in the return shipping envelope and send back.

Anything you do like, you pay for online and get to keep.

Last time I did StitchFix, my box was full of pretty awesome stuff, including this dress that I love and wear all the time.

Red and black game day dresses

I got my second Fix in the mail yesterday, and I have to say, I was kind of disappointed. After having such a good experience the first time around, I was really unhappy with the styles and pieces in my second shipment. Nothing was very "me."

Here's a glimpse at what came in my fix:

Black and White Dress

I love black and white things, in fact, a very large part of my closest is black pants and black and white tops, but there was just nothing flattering about the way this dress all. It makes me look short and squat.

Jeans and top

I actually really liked the jeans, they just didn't fit well. What you can't see in this picture is just how tight they were across my thighs. Fairly certain I wouldn't have been able to walk up steps in them.

The shirt itself is actually sort of cute. It's not something I'd normally pick out, but I kind of liked the colors. I can't really wear button down shirts though, because they never, ever lay correctly and I always get that awkward button popping across my chest.


Cardigan Sweater Thing


I don't even know what you call this, but man did I hate it . I don't do billowy flowy clothes. I like things that are clean cut with crisp lines and this top was the exact opposite.

Unfortunately, this shipment was just really off the mark style wise, which really bummed me out since I liked it so much the first time. I ended up not keeping anything.

I should say that I'm not totally writing off StitchFix entirely after this. I did have a really good first experience, so I think I'll probably just wait a few months, update my online style profile a bit and hope the third time's a charm.

  1. I'm sorry you didn't get anything you liekd but am relieved to know that I'm not the only who who has not had success with Stitchfix. I read so many blog entries about how much everyone loved their shipments that I signed up but I've received two orders where I returned everything. It's a really cool idea -- just goes to show that it's really, really hard to shop for other people!
