So I mentioned last week sometime that I gave in and ordered my first Stitch Fix box.
I filled out a profile with my sizes, clothing preferences, the fit I like, etc.
At the very end it even gives you the option to send a note to your stylist with links to Pinterest, my blog, etc. so they can get an even better idea of my style.
My box arrived on Monday last week and I couldn't wait to get home and open it up!
Inside I found a return enevelope, a small envelope with a letter from my stylist, a price sheet for the clothing I was sent, and a style card for ideas on how to wear the items.
Of course, I jumped right into the box and read the info later. lol!
Let's pretend that I read the card and all that jazz first.
So here is what I received all together.
Again, I apologize for the poor quality photos.
Working on figuring out where is the best spot to put my mirror still.
RD Style Annaway Cable Knit Sweater - Dark Gray $68
Kut From The Kloth Kate Distressed Boyfriend Jeans - Blue $78 (in all photos)
I loved the style of this sweater and the color.
It has a marbled look that takes me back to my youth without actually being from the 80's/90's.
Plus, it is pretty lightweight for a cable knit sweater.
The jeans seem to pretty well in the waist and the length.
I do have multiple pairs of jeans that are distressed, and a couple of boyfriend style ones as well.
While the price is more than I typically spend on jeans, I would be willing to spend a little more for a good quality pair.
Pixley Paulet Woven Back Knit Top - White $58
I loved the black and white stripes on this top and the all black back.
Unfortunately, the fit was way too boxy for my shape.
See U Soon Jeni Oversized Wool Coat - Orange Red $168
Unfortunately, the color was all I liked about it.
It was more than oversized on me, and the style was not my taste.
Plus, I don't think it would work very well in the cold Ohio winter.
The price tag was a bit higher than I am normally willing to spend too.
Look by M Mateo Fringe Edge Infinity Scarf - Grey $34
I really liked the softness and color of this scarf.
And the fringe aspect just styles itself.
However, I do have two similar scarves already.
At the end of the day I sent everything back but the cable knit sweater.
I couldn't believe that it all (including that coat) fit in the return envelope!
So here is how things work....
The $20 styling fee that I paid for the box to be sent to me is a credit towards that box.
Since I kept the sweater, my $20 went towards the cost and I just paid the difference online.
I sent the rest of the items back in the return envelope within three business days.
Do I think it is worth it?
At this point it is hard to tell.
Everything Amanda picked out for me was truly a color or style that I liked.
Unfortunately, the fit just didn't seem to work for me or I had similar items already in my closet.
So, I jumped online and updated my profile and sizes and preferences for the next box.
You can choose how often you get a new box.
(Mine is set to only send one when I request it)
I picked to have another one sent immediately since I do have a birthday and Christmas coming up ;)
It is set to be delivered on the 7th, so be prepared for another review soon.
Oh, and just it case you were wondering...the box total cost was $406.00.
Had I chose to keep it all, I would have received a 25% discount.
Making the total purchase price $284.50.
I did select to receive cheaper options, and my stylist made note in her letter to me that she understood the coat was higher priced than what I selected but loved the color for me.
We shall see how the next box stacks up.
