Note – Most of the people who land here looking for info about Stitch Fix are asking questions about plus sizing options. As of right now, there are none at Stitch Fix. Currently they only offer up to a size 12/14/XL. If you are looking for a plus size option, I’ve heard great things about Gwynnie Bee, though I haven’t tried it myself.
I know what you’re thinking.
Elizabeth, where is Stitch Fix #3?
Well. It was here and then it was gone. It was the most “meh” fix so far and I really should have taken photos of it. Not “meh” as in bad. “Meh” because I had something almost identical to every item in the fix and the items didn’t appear to be of any great quality (see the bottom of this post for an update on an old fix). Oh, and then there was an $80 pair of jeggings. I sent back everything but a navy tank with some embroidery on the front, just so I wouldn’t lose the styling fee.
I think I’ll take another few months off after this fix and maybe get one right before my birthday. WHICH IS IN LIKE 2 MONTHS. Gah.
Here we are at #4. I took a couple months off because the last fix was just too similar to things I already had and I thought it would be nice to wait for a new fix for fall.
First item — Fun2Fun – Richard Pleated Lace Detailed Blouse
This is fine, but once again a little too similar to something I already own. The cut is forgiving, but not very flattering. Looks too much like a maternity top. All that plus the $48 price tag…
Second item — Pomelo – Brentwood Tiered Striped Sheath Dress
Super comfortable and easy to wear. I like this a lot. Threw a cardigan over it because there’s a little too much exposed arm for my taste. (It’s sleeveless. I rarely do sleeveless without a cardigan.) I’d wear a different one with it, but this one was handy for the purpose of a blog post. Once again, we’ve got a diagonal pattern here like the dress in my second fix and that’s really flattering. I don’t own anything quite like this. It’s $68 and one of the pricier items in the fix.
Verdict: PROBABLY KEEPING?
Third item — Marlyn Schiff – Willa Bar Drop Earrings
$28. Without knowing what they are made of, there’s no way I’m keeping them and putting them in my very sensitive ears.
Fourth item — Olive & Oak – Mulliken Raglan Striped Knit Shirt
Maybe my favorite item this time around. Sooners understand! Perfect shirt for football season. I’m sure there are some Texas A&M fans who wouldn’t be opposed to it either It’s simple, comfortable, and cute. Rings up at $48.
Fifth item — Solid Design Lab – Mylee Tulip Hem Skinny Jean (not pictured)
Got another pair of jeans with this fix. I’m going to have to specify that I do not want any jeans because I refuse to pay that price for something I’m not head-over-heels in love with. I could tell they wouldn’t button, even though they are technically the correct size. At $98, there’s just no way.
Pretty good fix. Worth it to me just for the last top. What do you all think about the dress?
A little update on my first fix from back in April. The striped blouse (first one pictured in that post) has seen some mileage since then. I took it to the UK with me and wore it twice. I think I’ve worn it maybe 4 other times, bringing it to about 6 appearances total and I have to let you know this thing is WRECKED. Okay, it’s not falling apart at the seams, but it has become so misshapen, no matter how gently I have washed it. It looks so warped. This is the sort of thing I expect from something I bought at Forever 21 for $9, NOT something I paid 40 bucks for. I’ve not seen a lot of people address the quality of items after a few months of wear, so I thought this might help someone else out if they were wondering. Most of the other items seem to be holding up well. I’ll keep you posted on that.
