I’ve been toying with the idea of doing a Stitch Fix review for a while now. After I got my first Stitch and became instantly OBSESSED I started searching #stitchfix on Instagram to see what everyone else was getting. That’s how I found that bloggers like me (not just fashion bloggers! Not just models!) were reviewing their Fixes.
Confession: I sort of love taking pictures of myself, if I am given complete control of pose, lighting, camera angle, and the most flattering filter available. And you guys already know I love my Fixes. So this idea of doing a review was very appealing to me. I decided this Fix (my third ever) would be my first one to review on my blog.
Only problem was, Fix #3 was definitely my least favorite Fix. The other two blew it out of the water, perhaps setting up some unrealistic expectations for the future. But as we already established, I had already decided I was going to do a review, so damnit, I’m doing it anyway.
So fellow clothes-lovers sit back, and scroll through some selfies shot with an iPhone in my bedroom. Yes. Someday maybe I will learn to take self-timer pictures with a real camera. Today was not that day.
Here is what I got:
This was my favorite thing in my Fix. I asked for a comfortable maxi I could wear to BBQs and other casual summer outings, and I think the stylist did a good job. Being petite it is hard to find Maxis that work, and this one was a little long. And very clingy, which I felt may not be a great match for “relaxing” for me. It went back, but with a little regret.
I thought this one had potential, and I loved the way it looked under my blazer. If I was working outside of home, this would probably be a keeper. It was super comfy and I liked the print. But since my work clothes are 99% of the time sweat pants and baggy t-shirts, this went back.
I don’t know what it is about the knitty-crochet-y trend thing that just rubs me the wrong way, but as soon as I saw that on this dress I already knew it was a nope. I think it is a sensory issue with me – I like my clothes to feel good, I like rich fabric and soft things on my body. The texture of the top part would drive me crazy. Also, this “lets guess where your waist is and put elastic there” thing? Can we just not do that anymore? No clothing makers appear to have any idea where my waist is. I loved it more when I found out it had pockets but not enough to keep.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this color. Love the fabric too – it was a heavy, non-clingy synthetic. I might regret sending this back, but as summer approaches the last thing I want to buy is a heavy long sleeved shirt.
Ok. I am NOT a short person. At all. I can’t remember the last time I wore jean shorts but I’m pretty sure I was 22 AT THE VERY OLDEST. I couldn’t try these on and make them cute for you, but they actually are pretty cute and fit well. Just not going to get me in jean shorts this summer, Stitch Fix. Valiant effort though.
So my first review resulted in 0/5. I am going to give detailed feedback to my stylist and hope for better luck next time! Take away lesson: even Stitch Fix isn’t perfect every single time. How very humanizing J
