Stitch Fix | February 2019

This post contains affiliate links.

Well. It’s time for another Stitch Fix post, where I un-professionally model the things Stitch Fix sends me.

(If you’re new here and need to catch up, I started trying Stitch Fix’s “the cheaper, the better” option for about a year, and now I upped my price points a bit to see what that’s like. So far, upping the price has not changed much!)

You can read all of my past Stitch Fix posts right here.

Item #1

We’ll start with the best thing from my fix, which is this gray funnel-neck sweatshirt.

(Jeans are Old Navy and I got them on sale for $15.)

It has pockets, it’s made of a dressier-than-most-sweatshirts fabric, and it has pockets.


The fabric is a lot like this shirt from a Stitch Fix last year.

Anyway. Things went downhill from here.

Item #2

I feel so frumpy in it.

I don’t like the print, I don’t like the fit, I hate the sleeve length, and I especially despise the ruffles around the collar.

Item #3

These pull-on blue pants didn’t improve things much.

And the pants were too tight anyway.  If skinny pants are going to be pull-on, they need to be very stretchy to make it over someone’s hips, in my opinion. 

It took lots of shimmy-ing to get these up, and even once I got them up, they were just slightly too snug.

Item #4

Next up, we have this dress, which I also really do not love.

It just feels matronly on me, and I’m not into all-over prints anyway, except for florals, and even then only on occasion.

Definitely not keeping it.

Item #5

The fifth item was this necklace, which for $28 was just not knocking my socks off.

What’s the verdict?

I’m sending everything back except for the gray funnel neck shirt.

I have to say, even though I’ve gotten some good items from Stitch Fix, on the whole, my fixes have not held a lot of great stuff for me.

remember this sweater??

I don’t know what to think about this, because my sister gets Stitch Fixes and routinely keeps all five items. I’ve only done that once!

an item from the fix where I kept everything

I think next time, I’m going to try keeping all five things and selling what I don’t want on a Stitch Fix facebook group.  Then I can report back to you guys about how that goes.

The advantage to that method is that you can get the 25% discount for keeping all five items, which can put you in a better financial spot overall.

Anyway, I’ll let you know how it goes!

(jacket and shirt also from the fix where I kept everything)

P.S. There’s always a reader or two who isn’t sure what Stitch Fix is, so:

  • Stitch Fix sells new clothes, not second-hand.
  • They ship you a box (a “fix”) as often as you like, with five items inside.
  • They charge a $20 styling fee, which is credited to any item you keep from the box, and if you keep all five items, you also get a 25% discount on everything.

You choose your price point, style preferences, and sizing when you make your account at Stitch Fix.  But as you can see from my fixes, this is not an exact science. 😉

oops . . . becoming it shows up the meh-ness of this batch. Still, 1 good find is a good score!

Agree with the commenters above who enjoy these posts- vicarious shopping and your excellent attitude make it fun!

Yeah, that shirt is not meant for Any. One. Period. But kudos for being such a good sport :) I loved the first item and it looks very cute. Didn't hate the other things but I see your point. The things from the "keep everything box" are so bec

I love these Stitch Fix posts!!! Good or bad, it is always fun to open a surprise box of clothes! :) I could be totally off base because I have never tried Stitch Fix, but you only have to pay the styling fee ($20). All of the items cost more than that, so if you only love one thing from the fix, you aren't out anything.

Aren't you out the $20, plus the cost of whatever you keep, plus shipping?

Stitchfix does not do you justice. What in the world?!?!? I do enjoy the posts and your sense of humor about it all.

That second top looks like a scrub top gone wrong. I can't imagine it looking good on anyone. Thanks for giving Stitch Fix a whirl and taking your readers along for the ride!

Yes, it looks like a scrub from the clearance rack at K-Mart. Bad print, puffs out at the waist, and hits you in all the wrong places.
