Stitch Fix | October 2014

Stitch Fix is a subscription box clothing service for women. You can set up a recurring subscription or schedule the service as-needed. You are receive five items selected by a stylist. You can specify a lot of style preferences in your general style survey and give feedback with each order. You have three days to try on your items. Decide what you want, check out online, and send the remaining items back in the envelope included with your shipment. There is a $20 “styling fee” for each box. However, the $20 fee is deducted from your purchase. In addition, there is a 25% discount if you keep all five items.

I’m changing up my monthly Stitch Fix post! Here’s the note I sent to my stylist:

Looking for layering pieces that fit into my fall wardrobe theme of “comfortable academic” (alternately described by coworkers as “feminine athletic” or “relaxed preppy”). I’d like items that are youthful but can transition from office wear to weekend relaxation. I’d love to get an accessory in this fix, preferably the Bennie Heathered Stripe Knit Infinity Scarf from Octavia. I also thought the Jimmy Ankle Length Skinny Jeans by Just Black would be a good addition. Color preferences for items are autumnal (mustard, rust, olive green, burgundy, camel) and standard black, white, and gray. Thank you!

What did I end up getting?

Feedback for my stylist: The fit wasn’t quite right for me – tight in some places, loose in others, and really clingy material.

Verdict: Returned.

Feedback for my stylist: This had a really square shape and looked too big on me. I also have a lot of burgundy tops and this was too similar.

Verdict: Returned.

Feedback for my stylist: I have a lot of black pants/leggings and I was really hoping for some standard blue denim.

Overall

October 2014 Stitch Fix

Let’s deconstruct my request, shall we?

Looking for layering pieces that fit into my fall wardrobe theme of “comfortable academic” (alternately described by coworkers as “feminine athletic” or “relaxed preppy”). I’d like items that are youthful but can transition from office wear to weekend relaxation. All of the pieces were a good blend of casual and work-appropriate.

I’d love to get an accessory in this fix, preferably the Bennie Heathered Stripe Knit Infinity Scarf from Octavia. I also thought the Jimmy Ankle Length Skinny Jeans by Just Black would be a good addition. I didn’t get either of these items, but the scarf was a good alternative. The jeans, not so much.

Color preferences for items are autumnal (mustard, rust, olive green, burgundy, camel) and standard black, white, and gray. Yep, received.

Overall, an okay fix in terms of style and colors (with the exception of that lace number; yikes). If anything, the issue was how each piece fit.
