Check out my new personal fashion stylist and how easy it is for you get the same with just $20, Stitch Fix Review!

So this is not a typical post by any means for Joyful Healthy Eats.

It has nothing to do with food, but more to do fashion, which I should say is not my forte.

I KNOW … that really makes you want to read on right?

Bahaha….

I’m just being honest. If it was up to me I would probably live in NIKE clothing and flip flops all day long, and most days I do. But I still like to be girlie every once in a while. I mean whats the point of all those Pinterest Fashionista boards if you don’t buy/wear any of the clothes your pinning. right! I might as well stop pinning them ….

Well.. lets not go that far!

SO… today. Let’s talk fashion shall we?

I just signed up for this awesome online style retailer called Stitch Fix.

WHAT IS STITCH FIX?

It’s kinda like having a personal stylist that you will never meet … but who knows everything about you. When you first sign up for Stitch Fix, you will fill out an in-depth style profile, where you’ll specify sizes, body shape, price range, personal style, likes/dislikes, and any other additional things you might want the stylist to know as they prepare your “fix.”  You can even link up your Pinterest account so the stylist can see your pins as a way to sense your style. Once the style profile is complete, you’ll pick the date and frequency of your “fixes” and they will ship you a box of 5 clothing items and/or accessories based off of the style profile you filled out! All you do is pay a $20, a styling fee, this price includes the cost of delivery. Once you receive your fix you can keep as little or as much as you’d like, the $20 styling fee you paid will be applied as a credit for the items that you decided to keep. The remaining items that you don’t want to keep, just be put in the pre-paid return package that is included in the fix and drop it off at UPS. If you decide to purchase everything in the box you get an additional 25% off.

Sounds pretty sweet right? Well, if you want to learn more about how it works head over to Stitch Fix!

I signed up for Stitch Fix because I have a hard time pairing outfits and I don’t always have the time to stay in the the store to figure it out. I know what I like when I see it on Pinterest but can’t put it together in real life. Stitch Fix has solved that problem for me. They are the brains behind my fashion and I LOVE IT!

MY FIRST STITCH FIX REVIEW

Ok, let’s get started. Below is a picture of Item #1 Sonja Straight Leg Jeans paired with Item #2 Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Tee. I liked the style of the pants and the color, but they were a little big in my legs, so I decided not to keep them. The short sleeve shirt seemed to fit really well, I liked how it was short in the front but longer in the back. The dark grey color was perfect, it could easily be dressed up or down.

Next up, Item #3 Alberta Tiered Fringe Collar Necklace. In general I don’t have alot of necklaces. Most of them are really plain jane but I want to start expanding my accessories so this necklace was perfect. I love the gold color of it, I’ve found that gold tends to look better on me with my skin color and hair then silver does. 🙂 Have you found that one color looks better on you?

Now on to one of my favorites, Item #4 Braddon Airy Knit V-Neck Sweater. The fit of this one was perfect, I loved the airiness of it, which is great for Texas because lets be honest, it’s hot down here! I’m a fan of black and it actually went really well with the above necklace!

Lastly, Item #5 Braydon Printed Sweater Sleeve Utility Jacket. I don’t have a utility jacket yet, this one fit well but was a little heavy for Texas. I loved the aztec print on the sides, super fun, definitely not something I would have picked out for myself normally.

Ok, this one is just for kicks. Daddy and Cason were taking all these photos but Cason wanted to get in on the action and I couldn’t resist! I mean look at the cutie!

MY THOUGHTS ON THE FIX

The keepers out of this fix were #3Alberta Tiered Fringe Collar Necklace  and #4 Braddon Airy Knit V-Neck Sweater. I don’t have a tiered necklace like the one above so I wanted to add one to my collection and I loved the sweater, so naturally could not resist keeping it! 🙂

    I’m so glad that you tried Stitch Fix! Your first fix was awesome and you look great in everything! I really love the sweater and jacket. Love the pic of Cason too!

    1. Krista

      Thanks Ashley! I knew that you loved it and a couple of girls I talked to have really enjoyed it, so I thought I’d give it a try.

      The jacket was really cute but way to heavy for down south! 🙂 (as i’m sure you know florida girl!)

    I’ve always been intrigued by Stitch Fix but I was told that the items you get (if you buy) are expensive. Did you feel like the items you kept/bought were more expensive than the amount you usually spend when shopping? I’m a cheap-o shopper and some of the prices I was told about for the items in Stitch Fix blew me away!

    1. Krista

      Hey Allison. You have the control when setting your price range. The items I get would be comparable to shopping at Express instead of a Target, but they are also the same quality that you would get at an Express. (meaning, good quality clothing)

      I use to shop at Forever 21, all of my shirts there literally have a hole in after the first wear so I decided that if I start to invest (not a large invest but more than I normally would) than I would have a wardrobe that would last instead of going out every couple months. Make sense?

      I have spent on average of $60 for each box that I’ve received from Stich fix and have purchased more than one item. I hope that helps! If you have more questions totally ask I’d be happy to help!

      It depends on what kind of shopper you are and what your issues are about shopping. Some women LOVE to shop, have access to a lot of different stores, and are fashion-y type people who know how to dress.

      I am not one of those people.

      I dislike shopping. I hate trying things on in a dressing room. I live in a small town about 90 minutes from the closest mall/shopping variety. I do not know how to dress.

      So for me, the cost of the clothing has been worth it. Yes, I am spending more than I usually do…but I hated shopping so much, I would rarely buy anything new. When I did, about 1/3 of the time I would buy something I’d rarely wear. (did you ever buy something at the store just so you don’t go home with NOTHING?)

      I have found in the 10 boxes from Stitch Fix I’ve received in the last year, the items I’ve kept are my most worn items. I’ve found the courage to get rid of some of the questionable purchases I’ve made over the years. And I’ve gotten more compliments on my clothing than I ever have. Worth the extra cost!

      1. Krista

        Awesome! Yes, I completely agree. I have received two boxes from them so far and of the items I’ve kept they are probably the most wore in my closet. They are quality items and give me confidence when I go out because I look good in them AND they are in style!! 🙂 Best part was all I had to do was open my door and try it on. LOVE IT!
