Stitch Fix February 2015

I’m sure Stitch Fix isn’t anything new to you, but if it is – here’s a quick debrief. Sign up for a fix (you can use my link to sign up; if you do, thank you!) You’ll pay a $20 styling fee upfront on shipment. You receive a box containing 5 items based on a customized style profile. You then receive the shipment, have 3 days to try on the goods, and keep what you like, less the $20 fee. If you keep nothing, you do lose the $20 fee. Package it back up in the return envelope, drop it at the post office, and check out online. That’s it. No in-store returns… those are my least favorite part of shopping online! ;)

After my last terrible fix in June, I figured I’d be a glutton for punishment and order another. Why? Because I’m nuts and it would come in time for my birthday. I mean, there’s nothing that screams fun like getting potentially awful clothes, right?

Right!

The good news is that I didn’t end up getting awful clothes. I would actually venture to say that this is the best fix I’ve received. This is based on a small sampling, as I’ve only received 2 others, but I do like to creep on what other people get so I’ve seen quite a few fixes.

Without further ado… onto the clothes and my thoughts. At the end, tell me what you think I should keep – I have one day left to decide and I may be waffling a bit still.

Stitch Fix February 2015 Review

Stitch Fix February 2015 - Pixley Colibri Heart Print Tab Sleeve Blouse / hellorigby seattle fashion and lifestyle blog
Pixley Colibri Heart Print Tab-Sleeve Blouse in Navy, $48
Oh, petite girl problems. The fit on the left is straight out of the box. I tucked it in on the right and like it much better. I love the print and think it’s fun for Valentine’s Day without being unwearable for the other 364 days of the year.

Stitch Fix February 2015 - Kensie Jeans "Johnny" Ankle Biter Skinny Jeans, Market & Spruce Chambers Cowl Neck Knit Top / hellorigby seattle fashion and lifestyle blogg
Market & Spruce Chambers Cowl Neck Knit Top in Grey, $48 and Kensie “Johnny” Ankle Biter Skinny Jeans, $88
I really liked the top until I see it in photos. I think it looks better in person, but Dave mentioned that the cut wasn’t the most flattering on my chest. It is very comfortable though and would be a super easy wear to work top.

I loved the jeans when I put them on initially, but seeing them in comparison to my normal jeans (err, jeggings, whatever), I like them less. They’re too wide at the ankles and knees in my opinion and bunch in a weird way. I could have them taken in though… petite girl problems strike again.

Stitch Fix February 2015 - Skies are Blue Gabi Split Neck Blouse / hellorigby seattle fashion and lifestyle blog Skies are Blue Gabi Split Neck Blouse in Navy, $68 and Romolo Genevieve Necklace, pictured close-up below
I like this blouse, but it is quite oversized. This is a small, yet it feels more like a medium or even a large. It’s loose, lightweight, and feels bohemian and spring-y, plus I dig the sporty stripes. I do like it, but I’m not sure I want to spend $68 when I’m not 100%.

Stitch Fix February 2015 - Genevieve Stacked Chevron Pendant Necklace, Dark Grey / hellorigby seattle fashion and lifestyle blog Romolo Genevieve Stacked Chevron Pendant Necklace in Dark Grey, $28
While chevron is one of my least favorite prints these days (thanks, Pinterest!), I don’t hate this necklace. I think I would have probably preferred a solid gold, grey, or silver version, but I don’t hate it and could see it being fairly versatile with tunics.
(Similar necklace available at Target, $14)

So what made this fix so much better? I felt like my style was much better represented here. I like a little boho and a little classic in my wardrobe, and I think they did a good job of merging that. I also think that pinning items to my Fashion Pinterest board from their style boards on Polyvore really, really helped. I pinned both the heart print tunic (I thought it was cute for Valentine’s) and the Skies are Blue top, so I was happy to see them in my box. I also made sure to update my style profile to reflect what I wanted for this specific season, which was tops in neutral colors, and that’s what I got.

All totaled, my fix came to $280. Less $20 styling fee that I already paid at time of shipment and the special “Buy 5” discount of 25%, I can keep it all for $195, which is less than I expected.

So, now my question to you – what should I keep? :)

      Yeah, some of the pieces I really wanted didn’t show up in my box either, but oh well. Since this fix wasn’t a bust I’m thinking of trying it again next month with all that I saved by not keeping the whole thing… haha ;)

    I like all that they sent for you. I dont mind the gray top even. The necklace is really pretty! The first top is my absolute fave though even in the way you styled it.

      Thanks Kay! I kept the heart blouse and sent the rest back. I thought about keeping it all, but just wasn’t 100% feeling the rest of it.

      Thanks Julie! I kept the heart blouse! I liked the necklace too, but decided to try it again next month and save the cash for something I truly love ;)

    I received the same heart print top! I loved it so much, the only problem was I already have a pretty much identical top in cream with black hearts, haha. So did you end up keeping everything?

    I actually sent my stylist three Pinterest boards, haha. I definitely found she was good about pulling inspiration from them, which I was really impressed by! I only ended up keeping one item from my box, partly because it’s just pretty expensive and it’s hard for me to convince myself to spend $50 on a top that isn’t anything less than I LOVE. But I’m going to give it another shot and try it one more month.

      Oh bummer! It is cute, and I guess that means they got your style right! ;) I only kept the heart blouse, sent everything else back but will probably try again later next month!

      And dang, three Pinterest boards? That’s a good idea, I may try to send more inspiration boards, though I think my stylist did pretty well!

    I think you did pretty well!! Definitely keep the heart blouse and chevron necklace. I think both are versatile. And I’m kind of on the fence about the split neck blouse…I think it would be super cute with skinny white jeans and sandals, and I think you can pull off the flowy vibe. It doesn’t make you look wide or anything like that! But if you aren’t 100% about it don’t get it. I had a terrible fix arrive last week and it was my second shipment, so maybe third times a charm :)

      I think 3rd time is the charm! I was tempted to keep everything, but decided to just keep the heart blouse and try again next month!

    Pinterest killed chevron for me, sadly. :P That boho blouse is cute, but I can’t see spending that much on a top that I wasn’t 100% on either. (It does seem awfully big for a small! Weird!)

    I vote you keep the cowl neck top! I totally know what you mean about jeans bunching at the knees, I swear that ALWAYS happens to me. Short girl probs.

      I waffled on keeping that one too, but I decided to send it back and just keep the heart blouse this time around. I may request it next fix though, it was super comfortable!

    I like the “hearts” blouse – it’s a good fit on you tucked in :) The jeans look good too, but you should LOVE them. I believe in LOVING everything you buy, because I used to buy way too much all the time and get bored a few months later. I look for things I’m going to love long-term – but that’s just me!!

      Thanks Michelle! I ended up keeping the heart blouse and sending the rest back. I’m trying to be more discerning of purchases too – it’s easy to get trapped in the buying cycle, especially when it seems like a “deal”!

    I’ve debated on StitchFix multiple times, but haven’t ever committed. I know I will sometime. I love the dark navy blue items in this box alot! The heart shirt print looks almost exactly like something Burberry put out a few years ago too!

    I skipped my box last month so now I am very eager to get mine next week! I feel like we have similar body types in that tops just seem too “oversized” on us! I love the last blouse but it just seems too big on you :/ The heart top is super cute tucked in!

      Ooh, hope your fix is a good one! Definitely agreed on the too oversized fit. Some of the shirts end up wearing me, instead of the other way around! ;)

    OMG! I totally have the heart print shirt from the top! I also got it in a stitch fix. I absolutely love it. It’s so silky and comfy with a pair of leggings.
