Well, well, well… hello Stitch Fix box, my dear old friend. It’s been a while since we’ve seen each other, but I’m so glad to see ya. I’ve missed you. 🙂
I went on the Stitch Fix website last month to delay my box until this month because I was in and out of town so much in October and didn’t want to worry about tracking my shipment. It came at the perfect time last Friday though because I didn’t know what to wear for that night’s train ride with my daughters, and a casual, comfy blouse that was in the box was the perfect solution.
If you’ve been side-eyeing Stitch Fix and are semi-interested in trying it, NOW IS THE TIME! I hate to shout, but seriously…. NOW IS THE TIME. 🙂 They’re waiving the usual $20 styling fee for all new customers who schedule a fix between now and November 30th. If you love something, you’ll pay for it on the Stitch Fix website and then hang it in your closet. 🙂 If you don’t like anything, send it back in the pre-paid USPS bag and you won’t be charged a penny. It’ll be just like shopping on Amazon, except it’ll be a total surprise what you get. That’s the fun part!
Here’s a look at what my stylist sent along this month. 🙂
November 2017 Stitch Fix Box
Never Fray Hem Skinny Jean ($48)
I keep the pants that Stitch Fix sends me almost every single time. For years I’ve been blown away by how well the stylists are able to pick out pants that fit me. I loved the frayed hem on these pants, so they were the first item I put on once I opened the box. The fit was more than perfect, so I ripped the tags off and paired it with another top from this fix that I loved. I then ran around the house for the next 20 minutes getting the girls ready to get out the door, and I found that I was having to pull my pants up a lot. I think they were just a tad too big (which is why they were so comfortable haha), so I decided to send them back and put a little note on the Stitch Fix checkout site about why the tags were off. I considered asking for a smaller size, but decided to pass since I don’t really need another pair of blue jeans.
Aubrey Cold Shoulder Knit Top ($38)
I was fully expecting to put this on and love it since I’m a big, big fan of cold shoulder tops and dresses. I found this to be more of a “cold upper arm” shirt instead of shoulder, which I didn’t find flattering in the slightest on me. I also didn’t care for the fit of this top, so this was another easy return!
Mollie Knit Dress ($48)
I’m a little confused why they sent along a sleeveless dress in November, but I would have debating keeping it if I loved the print since warmer weather will inevitably be coming. I didn’t though, so back it went.
Loni Back Keyhole Blouse ($48)
I only have a couple blouses I like, so I was thrilled to see this one in the fix. So comfortable, flowy, and well-fitting. I can picture styling this top a handful of ways. This was a very easy item to keep! PS: I took this picture on Friday before we left for the train ride, and I’m wearing the Stitch Fix jeans I mentioned above. This was before I realized they were a bit too big.
Ronny Pointelle Detail Cardigan ($44)
Cardigans are one of the few items I don’t think a girl can ever have too many of since they turn lighter tops into year-round tops, but this one wasn’t doing it for me. I just didn’t love it, so it went in the return bag.
Some people get disappointed if they only keep one item out of five, but I don’t view that as a “failed” box at all. I view it like I brought five random items into the dressing room, but only decided to purchase one. In fact, I like that I’m not spending a ton of money out of nowhere every time I receive a Stitch Fix box. Just keeping an item or two is totally doable for our budget. The service is totally free if you keep one item, plus the element of getting a box on your doorstep is so fun!
TRY A BOX FOR FREE!
Usually a customer is charged $20 when each box is shipped, and then that $20 is applied to the cost of an item that one keeps. If everything is sent back, Stitch Fix keeps the $20. (Note: I’ve only sent my entire box back one time in three years!)
But this month, Stitch Fix is doing something different! They’re offering all new customers the chance to try Stitch Fix without the $20 styling fee! Click here, schedule your first fix before November 30th, and Stitch Fix will waive the $20 styling fee. That means you won’t be charged anything ahead of time and will only pay for what you keep. If you decide you don’t like anything and that you didn’t care for Stitch Fix, send everything back in the pre-paid USPS bag and be done with it. 🙂
What is Stitch Fix?
Stitch Fix is a stop-anytime apparel subscription service that sends customers five pieces of clothing and accessories once a month (or more or less depending on one’s preferences) based on price points that one designates in his or her profile. Stitch Fix stylists hand-pick what to send each customer based on one’s online profile created upon sign up. Customers are charged a $20 styling fee upfront per shipment, but the styling fee is later applied to any item(s) the customers chooses to keep. If one chooses to send back all five items, Stitch Fix keeps the $20 fee. A customer’s best bet is to keep at least one item since $20 has already been paid. Stitch Fix also includes a prepaid bag to send all unwanted items back. If a customer chooses to keep all five items, he or she gets a whopping 25% discount off of the entire box. So awesome!
Stitch Fix now offers their services for men! We’re considering giving this a whirl for Jamie, since he’ll be trading an Army uniform for professional attire soon. 🙂 If your guy has a holiday party coming up and could use a nice new sweater or pair of pants, I’d say now is as good of a time as any to give this a whirl!
Ready to get started and schedule your first box?
Don’t forget that your first box is free to try this month, so why not give it a try?! Just don’t forget that it also must be scheduled before November 30th. 🙂 Have fun!
