You might recall my first review of Stitch Fix and how disappointed I was. Well I got my second box and I was cautiously excited to see what it had in store for me.
In this box were two tops, both super cute and definitely things that I would wear. Unfortunately, both were too big! Last time, all the tops they sent me were too small so I went back to my online profile and changed my size. Now everything is too big. Really? It seems I am that awkward in-between-sizes size. Boo. I would’ve kept the striped top because that is totally my style (I love stripes…like, I think it’s a sickness kind of love). Oh well. By the way, the striped one was $44 and the white one was $48.
The cropped jeans they sent were totally up my alley too. And, to my surprise, they actually fit and were comfortable! I was seriously considering keeping them but two things stopped me: first, the stitching around the waistband was really stiff and itchy for some reason. I knew it would bug the heck out of me and I would end up avoiding wearing the jeans. Second, and more importantly, they cost $108! Excuse me? Three years ago, when I was svelte and had a booty you could bounce a quarter off of I would have totally paid $108 for an amazing pair of jeans. Today? Yeah, there is no quarter bouncing going on over here. Until I can lose this baby weight, I’m all kinds of soft mommy butt, so spending over $100 on jeans is not happening.
Next up was this adorable yellow dress. As soon as I saw it I thought it would be perfect for Easter. It was made from a soft, stretchy fabric and I thought for sure it was a winner. Unfortunately, the waist fell in the exact wrong spot and made me look 6 months pregnant. It was also the second highest priced piece at $74. Bummer.
The last piece was this fun statement necklace. It big, chunky, well made and very cute on. I don’t have anything like this in my jewelry collection and, honestly, I’ve been looking to add more accessories to my wardrobe. At $34, it is not something I would buy if I were out shopping but since they already have my $20 styling fee (and it would be added to anything I bought from the box), it ends up only costing $14. Not bad. This one was the only winner from the box.
One out of five. Not really the comeback I was hoping for from Stitch Fix but I think if those tops had been a size smaller, I would have kept them both. And, I discovered I can set my shipments for every other month instead of every month so that I’m not spending as much in the styling fee. Moral of the story: they did a better job this time and have peaked my interest in seeing how they might further improve their picks for me. I think I’m going to stick with it for another round.
