I was gifted my Stitch Fix box for review, however, all opinions are mine as always. I would never recommend something I wouldn’t recommend to my best friend.
I don’t know about you, but I have been dying to try out Stitch Fix for years.
Something about the idea of not having to walk through the mall for hours, especially with my twins in tow, just makes me incredibly excited about the subscription box.
So I finally took the plunge and went for it. I made my first Stitch Fix order and mamas. I am ALL about it!
I was a little skeptical at first, like can someone really know me better than I know myself? Especially a stranger just going through my answers to a few questions on a website? But man did they prove me wrong.
I fell hard for the clothes and accessories included in my first Stitch Fix order.
Just the whole process. Everything. You need to try this out for yourself.
Here is exactly what you can expect from your first Stitch Fix Order:
First off, you’ll make an account on Stitchfix.com. Here is a link to get you started as you follow along.
You’ll fill out a personal style quiz after getting started. You can expect questions like:
- your height and weight
- your typical sizes, lengths and fits
- what styles and colors you wear most
- the price point you’re looking for
- what you’re looking to get out of your Stitch Fix
I made sure to answer all of the questions as openly and honest as possible in order for my “personal stylist” to best select items for me. They use your answers while selecting exactly what to send you. So if you fib a little bit on your sizing, like you’re a 16 in pants but you tell them 14. Girl. Your pants aren’t going to fit!
Something I also did, as I am a curvy mama, is give a size up.
I did this because I know that when I shop, my sizes can be all over the place depending on how certain things fit and what they’re made out of. And I would much rather have clothes fit a little more loosely so that I can tie a cute knot or something than be so tight I would never wear them. Again, just something to keep in mind as you go through your personal style quiz!
After your quiz is time to schedule your first Stitch Fix order! You can select which types of items you wish to receive, how crazy you want the selections to be, and when you want it. Keep in mind that there is a $20 styling fee. BUT the fee is deducted if you decide to keep any of the five pieces sent to you! Total win in my book. We’ll get to why I think that is a great feature in a sec.
For now, let’s jump to receiving your first Stitch Fix box.
I was a bit surprised by the size of the box when it showed up. I was imagining something a little bigger to be honest with all that supposedly comes inside the box. But I was over the moon once I did open up the box.
The clothes come wrapped in tissue paper and on top is your information. A card tells you what is in the box, gives you ideas on how to style, and explains what to do next.
First on the list is of course- checking out the clothes.
Guys. I was OBSESSED. A little taken aback because of the price to be honest, but I was impressed none the less. The price comes down to the fact that I never spend money on myself. Really, everything was decently priced. I received four items all around $40 and then a jacket that was $80. All reasonable when looking at if I was to actually go to any stores that I used to frequent.
So for the clothes, I received a pair of dark wash skinnys, a grey long sleeved top, forest green t-shirt style hoodie, burgundy jacket, and a multicolored knit infinity scarf.
Everything was perfect. Colors, styles, everything. My stylist completely matched my SAHM that gets out some of the time and sometimes tries to not wear yoga pants vibe.
Here is a quick video I put together from my Instagram stories highlighting all that I received:
So I had a few disappointments while trying to be very critical of the clothing, but in all honesty, I would have 100% left the mall with these five pieces if I had the chance to snag them.
But for the sake of the review, I wanted to also send items back in order to see how the process went so I only kept my two favorites. The infinity scarf and the forest green hoodie.
And to be 100% honest with you guys, I wore the hoodie for three days in a row AND I am wearing it again right now. LOL!
The return process was crazy simple. They send you an XL USPS postmarked pouch for returning and all you have to do is shove what you don’t want to keep inside, seal and then ship it off. Then you log into your Stitch Fix account and let them know what you want to purchase (AKA what you’re keeping). Following that is a quick survey to let them know why you liked or didn’t like the items in your first Stitch Fix order and what you want different in your next box.
BUT! If I was to keep everything in the box, I would have gotten the $20 delivery fee knocked off AND 25% off the entire order. So there are some real benefits in keeping the whole box of goodies for yourself.
All in all, I absolutely loved my experience and I would 100% do it again.
I have my next fix scheduled for two months from now. That is another factor I like about Stitch Fix, you can schedule out to receive a box however often you’d like. You can do a month, every other month, seasonal, twice a year. Anything! It is also very easy to postpone and alter the shipment date.
