Stitch Fix Review – My Second Fix (What I Got & What I’m Keeping!)

April 22, 2014·

*This is not a sponsored post. This post does contain a referral link, so if you sign up to try out Stitch Fix, I will receive a credit towards my next fix, but that’s it. All opinions are totally mine! I don’t know why they’d be anyone else’s… haha!

I am BACK with another review of StitchFix! I just got my second “fix” in the mail and oh. my. heavens. I am in LOVE. Seriously. After two fixes, I am definitely hooked. I may have squealed a little bit when the mailman came to the door to deliver my StitchFix box. 

My stylist, Cynthie, did an AMAZING job really taking my feedback from my last fix into account. 

After my last fix, I told her that I was really disappointed in the strapless dress (I really don’t like my shoulders being exposed), and that the price points on most of the items really were just a little high for me. I don’t mind a pricier piece here and there, but most of my items were over $50 last time and I was disappointed about that.

Anywho, Cynthie really took my feedback to heart and in her personalized note, went into a great amount of detail to tell me why she chose certain pieces for me. 

So, like I shared last time, I’ll share each piece I got, what I thought of it (fit, style, price point, versatility etc.), and whether or not I decided to keep it! And also like last time, I took these pictures in our room as I tried them on, so they aren’t fancy, they are just raw, in-the-moment-as-I-tried-my-fix-items-on-for-me-and-my-husband, photos. I hope that’s okay with you. Okay? Okay. 

Item number one: Fun2Fun “Colibri Heart Print Tab-Sleeve Blouse” – Size L – $48

Stitch Fix Review - My Second Fix (What I Got & What I'm Keeping!) (1)

This is one of those tops that I never would have picked out for myself. I don’t know why, I mean, I like hearts, but I just don’t picture myself to be a heart-wearing kinda girl. Or something.

Anyway, I was eager to give it a try and try it on and… I LOVED it. The blouse is SO soft and the material is really lightweight so it will be great to wear this spring! It’s sort of a navy color, so it’s really versatile and will be easy to pair with a skirt OR jeans.

I also thought the $48 price point was actually quite reasonable for this blouse. It felt like good quality and really was so comfortable. I also LOVE the length of it. I really dislike shirts that are too short on me, and this blouse is the perfect length.

So, I decided to KEEP it!

Item number two: Kensie Jeans “Sophia Ankle Length Skinny Jean” – $88

Stitch Fix Review - My Second Fix (What I Got & What I'm Keeping!) (2)

I am not going to lie, I was REALLY nervous when I saw that there were skinny jeans in my fix. Ever since having Lilly, finding jeans that fit me and fit me WELL is nearly impossible. My hips (and rear) expanded so much and so well-fitting pants just are tough to find. 

But, I figured I’d give them a shot and so I tried them on… and SHOCKER… THEY FIT ME. I really was blown away. I know this seems silly, but I was truly shocked they fit. 

The material is a really soft and sturdy denim, they are the PERFECT amount of stretchy and (so far) they don’t stretch out to the point where they are saggy. The wash is a GREAT color and so they look really flattering and don’t make me look top heavy. 

These may, honestly, be my new favorite pair of jeans. And because I loved them so much, I did decide to keep them… yes, they’re $88, but honestly, a great pair of jeans that fit really well are truly priceless. ESPECIALLY since I have had such a hard time finding jeans that work for my post-baby body. 

So, yay!!

Item number three: Renee C “Vancouver Tribal Print V-Neck Blouse” – Size L – $44

Stitch Fix Review - My Second Fix (What I Got & What I'm Keeping!) (3)

I loved this item out of the box… the print is so adorable and the feel of the fabric is just amazing. It’s so so so soft and flowy and not stiff at all.

Although, when I tried it on, I didn’t love it right away. The sides of the blouse are cut kinda strangely and it’s actually a pretty short blouse (I don’t know how well you can tell by the picture).

I think the key to this blouse is going to be in how it’s styled. I think tucked into a high-waisted skirt could be really cute, or even with the right pair of jeans or shorts. The jury is still out…

I did end up keeping this one because it was actually CHEAPER for me to keep it than to send it back (there is a 25% discount on the fix if you buy ALL the items in the fix… so yeah, spoiler alert… I kept every item in the fix!)

Item number four: Urban Expressions “Aventura Woven Fold Over Clutch” – $38

Stitch Fix Review - My Second Fix (What I Got & What I'm Keeping!) (4)

I. Love. This. Clutch.

When I took it out of the box I think I actually gasped. The tan color is the PERFECT neutral and it just makes it such a classy everyday bag. I love the fact that it comes with a removable chain so you can wear it cross-body OR you can remove the chain and just use it as a clutch. 

I have actually been on the hunt for just a plain, neutral bag or clutch that I can use when I’m out and don’t need my diaper bag (which is basically my purse). I don’t own a good neutral bag, so this one was the perfect solution!

Plus, I thought a $38 price point was PERFECT for it. So, win, win, win!!

Item number five: Pomelo “Kathy Striped Fit & Flare Dress” – Size XL – $68

Stitch Fix Review - My Second Fix (What I Got & What I'm Keeping!) (5)

This was a dress that when I opened it I thought, “Hmmm this is cute… it’ll probably make me look like a prison inmate though… but I will try it on.” I love stripes, but sometimes black and white stripes on me just don’t look great.

The fabric is a soft and stretch material. It is a little thicker so it may be pretty hot to wear in the summer, but I don’t think it’s too thick for spring.

I LOVE the fit of the dress, it hits me at the smallest point of my waist before flaring out and so it really gives that perfect slimming illusion. Also, not pictured, but there’s a cute detail on the back because the back of the dress actually cuts down into a “V” shape a little. 

In addition to that, there’s an ADORABLE shoulder-detail on the dress… they’re almost like little poufy shoulders… it’s hard to describe. It’s just the perfect flirty, feminine detail! 

So, surprise, I kept the dress.

One of the other things that I love about StitchFix so far is that, from my experience, the QUALITY of the clothes is really great. Nothing feels cheap or flimsy, which is nice. Overall, I absolutely LOVED this fix. I think my stylist did such an amazing job! So, with the 25% discount for purchasing the entire fix, plus some referral credit (thank you to everyone who has signed up to try StitchFix through my referral link… I really appreciate it!!), it really was worth it for me to keep all the items.

I don’t know how often I will keep every item in my fix, but I’ve been saving some of my cash to invest in some quality pieces in my closet and this has really turned out to be SUCH a blessing. I am loving. loving. loving. StitchFix.

So what do you think? If you were me, would you have kept everything, too? Have you tried StitchFix?
