Gradybird Grades: Stitch Fix! (A July 2016 Stitch Fix Review)

Hello my friends!

So I've used Stitch Fix before and loved it, but haven't made a blog post about it in a few years (eek!) so I wanted to revisit on here.  (To check out my old posts - and see my much shorter hair - click here or here!)

If you've never heard of Stitch Fix before, here's the scoop:

Basically, it's a personal styling service where you fill out a questionnaire about your style preferences (Do you hate certain colors/patterns?  Do you prefer classic styles vs edgy styles?  Are you a mom?  etc.etc.) and then pay a $20 "styling fee" to the company.  Easy Peasy.  Then all you do is schedule when you'd like to receive your BOX OF FIVE AWESOME PIECES OF CLOTHING OR ACCESSORIES!  And they come right to your house!!!  And you decide if you like them/they suit you and your life/closet/etc.  If you don't like something, you mail it back (after three days, so you have time to decide!) in the provided and already paid for mailing envelope.  Check out online - if you buy something, the $20 styling fee is credit towards your purchase - and provide feedback on all items, whether you liked them or not.

Eek!  I just love how everything comes packaged, too!  So cute!

So what I'll do here is present each item's name, price, and a few photos of myself in the item. (Also, shoutout to my husband for being the BEST Instagram Husband EVER and taking photos for me for this post!)  Then I'll let you know if I decided to pass or purchase!  Please let me know if you have any questions!

  • Gilli, Haven Textured Knit Dress, $64.00

I actually liked this dress a fair amount, BUT I already own two other black & white polka dotted, a line dresses, so I had to pass on this one. Super cute, super comfortable but my stylist was almost TOO good in picking my style and chose something I essentially already owned!

Verdict: PASS

  • Pixley, Florence Dress, $68.00

This dress just... wasn't for me. The pattern with the different bottom just seemed a little strange, and then the slightly oddly placed elastic waistband wasn't doing me any favors and was uncomfortable to boot. Not for me.

Verdict: PASS

  • Collective Concepts, Katelynn Dress, $78.00
  • Street Level, Juno Small Folded Clutch, $38.00

This dress was pretty cute - it has an uneven hemline that was interesting and it was a comfy fabric, but it was just...nothing special? I liked it fine, but it certainly wasn't a standout piece, and I own SO MANY dresses already, so I didn't really want to add something to my closet that wasn't going to be unique.  And this clutch?  It was okay, not really my style or color, and for some reason (although it doesn't really read like this in the photos) it almost had a kinda dirty look to the fabric that I just really didn't like.

Verdict: PASS

  • Collective Concepts, Rema Maxi Dress, $88.00

Alright ya'll, I LOVE THIS DRESS.  I'm not usually a maxi dress person and honestly, I don't think they are the most flattering shape on me by any stretch of the imagination BUT I DON'T CARE BECAUSE I FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS DRESS.  The colors and pattern are absolutely gorgeous and this thing is so incredibly comfortable I can't get over it.  I'm notoriously cheap (let's maybe say "thrifty" to sound nicer? haha) and I splurged on this dress anyway!  I've worn it several times already and I just adore it.


So at the end of the day, I only purchased one item, but I love it!  I'm very happy with my Fix this month and am definitely going to use Stitch Fix again!

Interested in checking it out for yourself?  Wonderful!  Just to be 100% clear, I am not affiliated with or in any way sponsored by Stitch Fix, I just think it's a really fun company and I enjoy reviewing my Fixes!  However - full disclosure, as always - if you use the links in this post rather than Googling to find the website, I will earn credit towards future Fixes.  

Thanks so much for reading!  Happy Fix-ing! :)
