First Stitch Fix

November 23, 2015

Have you heard of Stitch Fix? I have seen people posting about it for a while now and recently decided to give it a try. My first fix came in the mail this week and the experience was so fun I had to share my first Stitch Fix with you!

First Stitch Fix

Stitch fix is a styling service that ships clothes and accessories to your home according to your preferences. On their website you input your likes and dislikes, favorite colors, styles, sizes, etc. You can leave a note for your stylist and can even create a Pinterest board for them to reference in styling your fix. You receive 5 items in the mail picked especially for you in each fix.

You can put your preference for pricing of the clothes and frequency in which you would like to receive a box. You can choose twice a month, once a month, every other month, every 3 months and so forth. I chose “cheaper the better” for pricing and every other month frequency to start out.

The styling fee for each fix is $20 and what’s neat is, if you keep any of the items in the box, that $20 goes as a credit towards that purchase. They send you a prepaid envelope to ship back any unwanted items within 3 days of receiving your fix. If you don’t keep any items, you forfeit the $20 styling fee. If you keep ALL items, you receive 25 % off your entire purchase. Once you try on your fix, you can pick and choose the items you want to keep or send back and give feedback to your stylist for your next fix. I figured, if I didn’t like anything, $20 isn’t too much to lose and totally worth it to try out something new and fun!

You get to choose the delivery date for your fix ahead of time and I was so happy mine came a couple days early! This is so fun I think if you have a birthday or special event coming up and want to make sure you have something to wear.

I really loved my fix! Even though I didn’t love how every item looked on me personally, I honestly feel like my stylist totally picked out things I would normally try on at the store which was awesome for a first fix. Here’s what I got:

1. Minal V-Neck 3/4 Sleeve Solid Blouse

This blouse is something I would normally try on if I saw it shopping, but when I put it on I knew it wasn’t for me. I’m not quite sure what it is about it, but I just don’t think it looks right on me.

2. Vivianna Open-Draped Knit Cardigan

Another one that would have caught my eye at the store, but again, not for me. Just didn’t love it enough to keep it

3. Beatrice Exposed Zipper Dolman Top

This one, I loved! I forgot to take a picture of the back but it has a cute gold zipper in the back and I really loved how it fit.

4. Fion Tiered Inverted V Necklace

I’m just not a fan of this necklace. I found it a little too clunky and didn’t like it.

5. Freida Skinny Jean in Navy blue

These were pretty comfortable and I liked them but I didn’t feel they were unique enough to keep or spend the money on.

So that was my fix! I think for my next fix I will ask the stylist to send possibly something with a little more pop of color or unique detail and also something short sleeved (since winter apparently doesn’t exist in Miami ;) As for my overall likes and dislikes on Stitch Fix:


  1. I really love shopping and trying on clothes anyway so the whole experience is fun to me!
  2. I felt that my stylist totally captured my style and did a great job picking out items for me, especially the first time around.
  3. I love having someone else pick out items to try and and I love the element of surprise possible in each fix.
  4. I love that they give credit for referrals! I was able to receive a referral credit when my friend used my link and this really helped out in being able to buy the top I chose.
  5. I love being able to try on the clothes at home! It’s nice being able to try them on at a time when the kids are napping and I can take my time and really see if I like it as opposed to being rushed at the store.


  1. As a self proclaimed “frugal mama”, I will say, the clothes definitely cost more than what I would normally spend. But they are well made which does go a long way when you are getting items you can wear over and over again.

I’d say overall my likes far outweigh my dislikes and I am definitely looking forward to getting my next fix in the mail! I totally recommend trying out Stitch Fix  if you are even a little bit interested!

Have you heard of Stitch Fix or tried it out before? I’d love to hear about your experience!



*If you sign up through one of the links on this post, I will receive a credit to Stitch Fix when your fix ships (also, when you sign up, you get your own referral code to share with your friends, and get credit, too!) Honestly, it was so fun, I would be sharing this either way!
