The Stitch Fix Thread!

Recommended Posts

My last fix was great!!!

 

I'm wearing two of the five items today.  

 

http://www.polyvore.com/thisbe_colorblocked_open_draped_cardigan/set?id=113362855 

I love this cardigan it's light weight but has super long sleeves and is so pretty (It doesn't look like it but the grey fabric has a little shine to it that dresses it up).

 

http://www.polyvore.com/margaret/set?id=82898381

I thought for sure these pants would be a no go, but they are so so SO comfortable. They're really expensive but for super comfortable black pants that I can wear year round, they're worth the investment for me.  

 

I also got this jacket but it was just a bit too snug for me. http://www.polyvore.com/julia_utility_jacket/set?id=113098586

I really liked it but my bf felt it was too fuddy duddy so it's going back.  

 

The only thing I wasn't thrilled with was my SILVANA BEJEWELED SWEATSHIRT, it was comfortable and fit well but not really my style. I also got a green COLIBRI SOLID TAB SLEEVE BLOUSE which is very similar to other blouses I've tried from Stitch Fix and I have a green blouse from them in my closet.  

 

I specifically asked for green items to wear to our St Patty's day parade and block party but I'm sending both green items back.  Oh well.  

 

I find stitchfix works best for me when I have them send me things for specific events and they've always been helpful with my requests for specific items.

I got the same utility jacket in my last one, too. What color was yours? Mine was a dark royal blue. It was cute in theory but on me it was hideous!

Mine was the same green as the link I put up in my post.  I loved the color but it was just too dowdy looking on me.  I still asked for more outerwear items, I think they're worth the investment.

Well I just got the actual package, and i'm even more disappointed that I thought i'd be.

 

The cheapest item was a $42 necklace which I've seen sold at other places for less than $10 (and it's made in china, i am VERY familiar with the brand). AND a dress they're trying to claim is $78 retail is actually $72 retail at le tote, and costs only $42 to buy at le tote.

 

Way to go stitch fix.

Sorry, I didn't read this in detail, you can keep and purchase the items you want? Can you explain the process more? You rent & buy it if you like it......return it if you don't?

I don't have golden tote, but I have Le Tote (netflix type clothing subscription and you can still keep what you want and be charged a REASONABLE price. same brands as stitch fix but 40-50% less expensive). Their CS is AMAZING, they always offer extra items in their totes or credits when things aren't going right. I told stitch fix i'd be canceling and they were basically like "Okay, thanks for your support."  They don't care about their customers and won't fight to keep them. Which is a shame because I could have spent $100 a month on them if they had been nicer.

You don't necessarily rent anything, because you can't wear stuff and return it. But you can buy and return. So if you like 2 of the 5 items they send you, they'll charge you for those two and you'll send three back. Your $20 styling fee is applied towards whatever you keep. If you don't keep anything, you lose the $20. If you keep it all, you get a discount.

Bellerenee was talking about stitch fix, not le tote.

 

Le tote costs $50 a month (but they often times have promos) and it's like netflix, you wear whatever you want for however you like an return it with a prepaid 2 days shipping label. If I don't wear anything (or wear one thing that day and ship the next) I'll get a new tote in about 4 days. IT's FAST!  And if you like something you can just keep it and they'll charge it (great prices too I must say! especially compared to stitch fix....who makes up everything).

 

Also, their CS is AMAZING. They go out of their way to contact you personally about your daily life and try to send you things that suit your lifestyle. They send me things for swing dancing as well as things I can wear to teach during the day.

 

And lots of times, if I didn't like anything in my tote or had issues they sent me an extra item the next time or give me a $20 credit.

i think i am done with stitch fix for now too. it's nice to get clothes in the mail, but i don't think most clothes are really my style. i alternate between made well and Zara, and both places I get better quality for my money than stitch fix. 

 

 

it was nice to try though!!

once I found a blazer they sold for a lot cheaper at another site, and they offered to price match. if there is something you want that you saw somewhere else,  i would ask about price matching!

For stuff that is hand wash only I just put that item in a zip   up pillowcase from walmart and wash on the cold hand wash setting of my washer.

My washer is one of those front-loading things with no wringer inside- so stuff never gets caught.

 

I've been doing that for years and have some sweaters that look like they are crochet from thread and those are still in perfect condition.

 

I also have a lot of expensive socks and tights and havent ruined them by washing yet :)

Thank you!  I was thinking that was it but wasn't sure.  I have been so bad with posting my fixes.  I have received two recently and haven't posted yet.  It's been difficult with my work schedule but eventually I'll get it.  In my last fix I actually ended up keeping everything.  I wasn't crazy about the pattern of one of the shirts I received but it was just cheaper to keep everything with the discount.

Stitchfix tried and flopped this time. I feel like this style is much more "romantic," whereas my profile clearly reflects that I prefer a more classic/tailored style. I asked for a spring dress and anything in radiant orchid. Unfortunately, with my scoliosis, I can't wear dresses that are fitted at the waist, so I requested a straight shift style dress. Here's what I was sent. 400400400 I really wanted to love everything but here are my thoughts: The dress fit nicely and I love the colors. But it was $88. For $88 I could get a better made dress that I LOVE instead of a cheap-feeling dress that I only sorta like. The scarf was $42. Lol nope. The purple skirt was AMAZING. And a great price. I tried to love it. I really wanted to. But it accentuated everything I don't like about my body. I just looked way rounder than I am. I'm not tiny, but I'm fit... and the skirt made me look 20 lbs heavier. Sigh. So sad to send this back. Beautiful color. It's a deep eggplant and would've looked amazing with the orchid blouse. The white blouse would be stained in an hour. Let's just be honest. I didn't love the way it fit me either. Pretty embroidered details though. I kept the orchid tab-sleeved blouse. I'll always keep this style. It's so effortless. The color is stunning in person and will be perfect for spring. This was my fourth fix. I'm not sure if I'll continue with stitchfix. It's fun but the last couple ones have been totally off mark. I wish they would pay closer attention to my Pinterest. Or maybe they do and I'm just too picky. Also, as a grad student, $42 scarves and $88 simple dresses are not in my best interest. I'll gladly pay those prices for quality in styles I love but not for these items.

I have received two fixes, and I do not think either stylist looked at my Pinterest. My last fix was awful. I explicitly said no prints and received 2 printed blouses. I don't think the last stylist read my comments.

 

The first stylist was Olivia, and the second was Reina. I am going to receive my third in about 2.5 weeks. If it is a flop, I am going to request Olivia. If that doesn't work out, I will not do Stitch Fix anymore. All of my interactions with customer service have been poor.

 

Sorry about your fix :( I know how disappointing it can be when you have your hopes up for something good.

For what it's worth, my stylist is Britney and she definitely looks at my Pinterest. There's been one item is each of my two stitchfixes that she says she picked specifically because of my Pinterest board and there are usually other pieces that I can tell were inspired by my pins. It is unfortunate though that the stylists are not created equal. Some are awesome and some not so much. 

 

My third fix is scheduled to arrive at the end of the month. I guess we'll see how she does since I requested her again.
