Stitch Fix December & Giveaway

Affiliate Links

Another month, another Stitch Fix. And the last one of 2015! Pretty wild that we’re already into December. If you’re not familiar, Stitch Fix is essentially a personal styling service for those on a budget or with time constraints for shopping. Sign up, fill out a style profile, pay a $20 styling fee (that you can put towards your Fix), and wait for your box of 5 clothing items (maybe with an accessory or shoes, too!). You then can try each item on in the comfort of your home, select what you want to keep, and send the rest back in the prepaid mailing envelope.

I started my Stitch Fixes back up earlier this year and it seems to have hit a weird patch. My beloved stylist, Kimberly has vanished. Last month I had a new stylist, and again this month, a new one. Perhaps I’m a difficult customer? Who knows.

And that brings me to my bad news. I had another bust of a Stitch Fix. The good news for you? I’m starting Christmas early this year with a giveaway. Even if Stitch Fix isn’t always 100% on point for me, I thought it would be fun for someone to be able to try their own Stitch Fix risk-free by offering a $20 gift card to cover your styling fee. Even if the box isn’t 100% perfect, the experience and surprise still are! More on that below, but first, let’s take a peek at my December Stitch Fix!

Stitch Fix December 2015 Review & Styling

Stitch Fix December 2015: Liverpool Loren Bootcut Jean // hellorigby.com seattle fashion blog Liverpool Loren Bootcut Jean, Size 4P $78 – Returned
I’m petite, but when it comes to bootcut/flare jeans, I want them to just barely graze the ground. Unfortunately, these were too short. They fit everywhere else, though, so these weren’t a total dud.

Stitch Fix December 2015: En Creme Gonya Split Back Pullover Sweater // hellorigby seattle fashion & style blog En Creme Gonya Split-Back Pullover Sweater in Dark Gray, Size Small $58 – Returned
Well, this was much sheerer than I thought when looking at the photos… so sorry for the lack of tank top underneath. Honestly, this just felt like it wouldn’t hold up well, as the material was already fraying in spots, and I didn’t like the oversized length of the sleeves.

Stitch Fix December 2015: Pixley Amboy Raglan Sleeve Trapeze Knit Top // hellorigby.com seattle fashion & style blog Pixley Amboy Raglan Sleeve Trapeze Knit Top in Burgundy, Size Small $48 – Returned
The material of this top seemed like it wouldn’t make it through a run through the washing machine. It’s incredibly thin and felt very cheap. Combined with the fact that it was too tight in the shoulder and chest, this was a no-brainer to send back.

Stitch Fix December 2015: Sweet Romeo Mika Open Drape Cardigan // hellorigby.com seattle fashion & style blog Sweet Romeo Mika Open Drape Cardigan in Navy, Size Small $68 – Returned
When I first pulled this out, I was excited about this as it felt so comfy and cozy. It is… however, I think it’s a bit too oversized for my taste. I already own enough oversized/very casual sweaters that I just don’t feel like I need any more.

Stitch Fix December 2015: Skies are Blue Charlene Plaid Cotton Button Up // hellorigby.com seattle fashion & style blog Skies are Blue Charlene Plaid Cotton Button-Up in Burgundy, Size Small $54 – Returned
I own a very similar plaid blouse to this, which I think is a better cut and fit. This button up was also bizarre, as the button holes seemed to be cut far too small for the buttons to fit through. If you can’t tell, good, because I did not have this buttoned up for the photos… #RealTalk

And now for the part you’ve been waiting for – the giveaway! This giveaway is open to any location that Stitch Fix gift cards can be redeemed, and they ship to. (You can check that on their website here.) Giveaway will end at 11:59 pm PST on 12/13. Best of luck!

    I’ve been wanting to try stitch fix for forever, but I’m so worried I’ll hate everything! I’d love to see some cute tops that I can wear to work, but also style cute to wear on the weekends!

      Ah that’s a bummer! I’ve had it happen too – I recently cleaned out my closet again and really don’t wear my some as often as I thought I would.

    If you want a good stylist, Jenn, I highly recommend Ariann! You can request her in the notes section for your next box. Since I got her four or five boxes ago, my selections improved drastically!

    After discovering trendsend, I’m definitely not going back to Stitch Fix any time soon. The things they sent me recently felt so cheap and I just couldn’t pay the high price!

    I would like to see a faux leather jacket in my first stitch fix if I were to join. I really enjoy reading and seeing your stitch fix reviews. Thanks so much.

    I like the raglan top, but the rest was definitely bust. I didn’t realize you were short until you mentioned it once, and normally you don’t LOOK short, but those jeans definitely emphasize it.

    I’m having similar bad luck, a new stylist every Fix but none of them are really ‘getting’ me. I know I am particular and my notes are very specific, but that’s pretty much how the service is supposed to work. Maybe I’m just being cynical, but I tend to think that now that Stitch Fix has been around for a while they may be pushing the stylists to do more in shorter time and they are being spread too thin. Also, the stylists they employ now are more than likely current/former customers as opposed to people with a real fashion education who would make better selections for strangers.

      I think you’re definitely onto something there, and have felt the same way! Unfortunately I think they’re limited to about 15 minutes per Fix, and I imagine a lot of them really don’t understand much about what clothing styles work best on different body types.

    i don’t think you are too picky at all. if you don’t love something, why pay for it? i don’t want to lose the $20 styling fee when i do stitch fix, but i’m not going to lose any more cash by buying something i don’t love!

      Very true, and exactly why I sent it all back. I almost kept the sweater since it wasn’t terrible, but I really don’t think I would have worn it! Fingers crossed the next one is better.

    I’m feel the same way. I’ve only received one box so far but I wonder how much they really listen, or can, to the notes.

    I would love to see elbow patches, pointe pants and sweaters in my next fix. I feel like there hasn’t been a great selection so far this fall
