My new Stitch Fix box arrived (with Lisey’s help)

If you are new here or new to Stitch Fix: Stitch Fix is an online styling subscription program. You fill out a profile, pay a $20 styling fee, and you get a box of five clothing items to try. The $20 styling fee applies toward anything you keep. I originally was trying out the “the cheaper, the better” price point, but it was all pretty expensive anyway. As of now, I’m just trying to use up the credit I accumulated from an older post. If you hate Stitch Fix posts, consider yourself informed about today’s post content (i.e. do not leave me annoyed comments. Read at your own risk!)

Alrighty! You know how my last box was a big fail? And how Lisey revamped my profile for me?

Well, I got a fresh new box of things to show you now.

Item #1 : green joggers

Stitch Fix Sanctuary green joggers

These fit me oddly, and the style/color combo just immediately made me think of medical scrubs.

If I wear the waist low, it isn’t flattering, and if I pull the waist up, it isn’t flattering either!

Not a winning pair of pants for me.

Item #2: high waisted denim shorts

First issue: when I put them on, the button cover popped off.

Second issue: I don’t think they are super flattering on me. The side/back view is ok, but from the front, they make me look more square than I actually am.

Item #3: peach open-back shirt

I do really like the color of this shirt; warm coral/orange shades look good with my skin color.

But the loose fit sleeves and the crew neck were not my favorite.

There’s a circular cutout on the lower back that I tried very hard to take a photo of, but I could only do so well.

Item #4: white short-sleeve shirt

This one is not bad from this view.

But from the side, it feels awfully shapeless.

And same thing from the front.

I tried tucking it in too, and I don’t think that was any better. Also, please note the very square shape these shorts give me.

A half tuck was maybe a little better?

Item #5: a dress (er, chemise?)

This Free People dress does not seem like a dress to me.

I put it on and decided there was no way I was sharing photos of it on the internet. That is just too much skin showing!

I put a white pillow inside the dress so you could see why I didn’t want to model it:

Nope, nope, nope.

I noticed that the style card suggested wearing a denim jacket with the dress:

so I put that on.

A buttoned-up denim jacket is the only thing that could make me wear this dress in public! Ha.

Bonus item: a pajama set

Stitch Fix gave Lisey the option of picking some sleepwear/loungewear items to add, so she surprised me and picked a black knit pajama set.

And funnily enough, the pajama set offers much more coverage than the above dress. So, I’m modeling the pajamas for you and not the dress!

These are cute and comfortable and I am definitely keeping them.

Would I pay $64 for pajamas normally? Nah. But since I am trying to use up my Stitch Fix credit, I am happy to keep these.

And since the credit cannot be used for anything else, I consider my efforts to use up my credits to be frugal. I’m not about to leave the dollars there! 

Next steps

Since this fix was not exactly a home run, here’s my next thought.

Stitch Fix style card

Stitch Fix lets you log in and shop for some items directly (it’s called “shop your look” and it’s groupings of items based on Stitch Fix items that you have bought before).

So, I’m going to have Lisey go through and choose some items for me, since she is generally better at styling me than Stitch Fix stylists are! 

Stay tuned. 🙂

Oh, and here’s the price sheet, since I forgot to include that last time around.

So. Would you keep any of these things?

Give me your fashion opinions!

Those picks are terrible. I am a long-time stitch fix subscriber and I have found that finding the right stylist is key. I went through several terrible boxes before I landed on Lisa as my stylist. I have now had her for over a year and the vast majority of her picks have been flattering and appropriate for a 38 year old mom.

As for using your credits, do you have "Shop Your Look" in your profile? Have you purchased anything from Stitch Fix before?

This is the new model for clothes shopping as malls start to die out. I have used Amazon Prime Wardrobe for my sons but not so much for myself.

I really like the white top on you even though you didn’t find the shape flattering. It looks so loose and cool in this heat wave we are having and looks really nice on you. The coral shirt I like the loose sleeves but a V neck would be much more flattering and what’s with the open thing in the back? Don’t like that at all. The PJs are a home run. And I agree the “dress” is anything but. Lol

The prices are ridiculous! I would not pay this much for new clothing. I am disappointed because I thought this might be an easy way for me to shop for used clothing online. I buy almost all of my clothing from garage sales and thrift stores. I admire that you keep trying! And I love your blog. It is the first one I go to each day. You enrich my life.

Nope. And I’d use that credit for something more useful.

Unfortunately, I can't use the Stitch Fix credits anywhere else! I'm stuck spending them at Stitch Fix.
