You know what still thrills me about Stitch Fix, even after 4.5 years of receiving boxes?!
There’s almost always something inside the box that I want to wear immediately and that answers the “What will I wear to ‘xyz’ function?” question. For example, this sweater. I got my most recent Stitch Fix box on Wednesday, and I didn’t take this sweater off after trying it on that afternoon! I loved it so much and knew that I wanted to wear it that night to dinner with a couple of families we were meeting in a few hours. Checkmark! I don’t own a single yellow long-sleeve top, and it’s cashmere soft (but it’s not cashmere, which is confusing but amazing because it really feels that way).
PINK CLOVER Hayes Seam Detail Pullover
At the beginning of January I received a fix that I never did a review on, but inside that box was the most comfortable floral purple dress that fit perfectly. I knew that I had a girlfriend’s wedding coming up in two weeks and had already decided I’d just grab something from my closet that I already owned (I just wasn’t sure which dress yet). But then I saw this purple dress and decided that it would be perfect for the wedding and also perfect for church, a nicer dinner out, etc. Boom!
Potentially relatable moment: I had an experience a few weeks ago where I was at the mall with my family looking for something to wear for New Years Eve (this was before my group of friends all declared the dress code “yoga pants comfy” and all of the angels started singing). I was in and out of six or seven stores and was frustrated. The department stores were too expensive (I swear every sweater was $80+, no thanks) and I’m just feeling too dang old to shop in Forever 21 these days. 😉
So I left the mall frustrated and surprised that I couldn’t find anything and thought “This is exactly why I love Stitch Fix.” I rarely (and I mean raaaaarely) buy clothes from anywhere else, and this is why. I don’t even have to think about it. I keep what I absolutely love and say SEEEEE YYAAAA to everything else. Another box comes rolling around maybe 3 weeks or 3 months later (depending on what I’ve scheduled), and voila, I have a few new pieces to keep my closet fresh (and an excuse to stay out of stores spending money).
Long live Stitch Fix.
Here are the other four items I got this week in my box. 🙂
Stitch Fix Review February 2019
I love the print of this tank, but this cut is not flattering on me. It cuts under my armpits in weird places as well as makes me look very boxy from the side. I wanted this top to work so badly when I pulled it out of the box, but it’s simply not a top I’ll feel comfortable and confident to take off the hanger and regularly wear. Sent back.
MAX STUDIO Eina Scoop Neck Top
EMORY PARK Dulce Short Sleeve Knit Top
This top is very soft, and though it’s a little plain, all I realistically wear in the spring and summer are solid basics like this. I know I would get a lot of use out of it, but the neckline was an issue. You can’t see the issue in this picture, but I felt a bit more exposed in this top than I’m comfortable with when taking my kids to play at the library. 🙂
NINE BRITTON Kolda Brushed Knit Dress
This dress is really soft and excellent quality (a major theme for this box!), but I just don’t love it. It would work well for allowing baby girl to grow, but I think it would be a bit too big next winter. Sent back.
GILLI Delina Knit Maxi Skirt
The last item I received in this box is this floral maxi skirt. I loved this when I pulled it out of the box and hoped it would work. I was just so eye-catching! The description card in the box recommended I pair it with a white top and the jean jacket I’d gotten in a fix months ago, so I did just that and liked it! It’s very comfortable and will work well during and after pregnancy.
The second recommendation on the card suggested I pair it with the mustard sweater, which I would have never, ever thought of. I liked it though! Not sure if the “tucked in” look will work much longer for me, but I liked the suggestion to do this maybe next year. Plus, I like these colors together!
Here’s the jacket I kept from a previous fix that I didn’t do a review on (I don’t think). I have never thought jean jackets were comfortable, but this one is like wearing jeggings! I wear it as often as I can. If you want a mega comfortable jean jacket, I’d recommend asking for this one from your stylist.
Also, here’s what I kept from my January fix. I requested a pair of maternity leggings and am totally obsessed with these. I started wearing them at 14 weeks even though I barely had a belly. 😉 There’s that purple floral dress I mentioned earlier, and then finally this olive knit top that’s been on my weekly rotation. You may recognize it from our gender reveal party!
Something new that Stitch Fix started doing a few months ago is keeping track of what you’ve kept in the past. Now, any time I need ideas for how to wear my items, I can see the suggestion cards on my profile. I love these fun ideas for how to wear the olive top. I don’t have a natural eye for apparel pairings, so I really appreciate the ideas!
Give Stitch Fix a try!
You should try Stitch Fix! Seriously, it’s a whole family affair around here. My husband gets a fix every three months (these are the only clothes he buys now), and my girls also receive boxes!
Create a Stitch Fix profile here and request your first box for you and/or your loved one! There’s a $20 fee that’ll be charged to your card when your box ships (IT’S OFTEN WAIVED, SO CHECK TO SEE!), but they’ll apply that fee to the item(s) you decide to keep. Dislike it all? Send it back in the pre-paid bag and eat the $20. But I’m pretty sure you’ll like at least one thing. 🙂
Here are 28+ Stitch Fix Reviews, including the mens’ and kids’ boxes, if you’re interested in browsing previous fixes. 🙂
Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother in today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to two little girls (ages 5 and 2) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
