My 2nd Stitch Fix

by Meghann on February 11, 2014

My second Stitch Fix is here!

Well, technically it arrived last week, but I needed a few days to sit on it and decide what to keep. Since everyone seemed to enjoy reading about my first experience last month, I thought it would be fun to share this month’s experience, too. It’s always fun to play the game of “did she keep it? or did she send it back?”

1)  Mystree: Bellflower Sleeveless Striped Lace A-Line Dress

I loved the look and feel of the dress. It’s not like anything else I own and seemed perfect for future baby showers I have this spring/summer.  It’s also super comfortable. I do wish the cut and neckline were a little different, as this look isn’t as flattering without a nice cardigan to cover it.

KEEP

I already wore the dress to work and got a lot of compliments on it.

2)  Kensie Neal Sleeveless Cotton Eyelet A-line Dress

I loved the color immediately. It was bright, vibrant and perfect for spring. However, it’s a little big and isn’t very flattering. I also didn’t like how the two dresses in the fix were similar in cut and fabric.

RETURN

Since the dresses were so similar, I didn’t want to keep both. I ended up keeping the striped one because I thought it had more styling possibilities.

3)  41Hawthorn: Milano Twist-Front Crew Neck Knit Top

It’s hard to tell in the photo, but it’s a long sleeve back top with two knots on the front. It’s made of a really soft, comfortable fabric that’s very light and perfect for Florida “winters.” However, the knots are a bit awkward and pulled funny across my belly.

RETURN

In the end the top was just plain boring. I also have way too much black in my closet already.

4)  Just Black: Adorra Skinny Jean

(see photo above!)

When I first saw the long and skinny jeans in the box I was afraid they weren’t going to fit, but they ended up fitting like a glove. The material is slightly stretchy in a very forgiving way. Not going to lie, my butt looked hot.

Unfortunately the pants are cut for someone who is 5’10.

Womp.Womp.

KEEP

Would I return a pair of pants that make my butt look great because they’re too long? Heck no! I can get these babies hemmed.

Yep, already worn them to work and already obsessed with them. I may wear these everyday this winter.

5)  Bay to Baubles:  Elle Jewel Statement Pendent

20140209_131426

It just so happened that the necklace worked with all the outfits above. I really liked the bright colors and chunkiness of the pendent, it really stands out and can work with almost anything.

KEEP

I need more chunky jewelry, plus I thought it was cute.

So that’s this month’s fix. I kept three and returned two – not bad. I’ve already scheduled my next fix for mid-March and requested fun, flowy tops for spring.

What would you have kept and what would you have returned?

Okay, my opinion means nothing, I’m sure, but keep that second dress! That color is great on you, and I don’t agree, I think it’s really really flattering! Just my humble opinion though, I will have to look into stitch fix myself!

Those skinny jeans look great on you! As I was scrolling & reading, I saw the “womp, womp” and thought you sent them back just because they were long, and thought “NOOOOOOOOOO!!!” — glad you kept them! Hemming/altering is the best fashion secret! 🙂

I love stitch fix posts! It’s interesting that I’ve never seen two people get the same thing! I probably would have kept the jeans and maybe one of the dresses–depends on price. I love kensie, but sometimes the fit doesn’t work.

I’m so sorry the turquoise lace dress didn’t work out. Like you, I immediately gravitated toward the color. I might have kept that one over the striped one, although I understand that fit was a concern. Those jeans look awesome! My third stitch fix is coming in early March, and I’m super excited!

Loved the color of the blue dress but have to agree that it did nothing for you. Love the jeans on you and the stripped dress. Very cute! Look forward to seeing what you get next time.

I have a LOFT dress really similar to the striped one and LOVE it. It’s great belted with a cardiand statement necklace 🙂

I love the idea of stitch fix. The first dress is cute. I also like the color of the second one. A good pair of jeans is hard to find so I’m happy you kept the pants! (:

good choices, I love the jeans and dress you decided to keep.

Stitch fix sounds like a lot of fun. I might have to give it a try after seeing how much success you’ve had!

I would’ve done the same as you–although that black top actually looks cute from the picture, I can’t really see what was wrong. But the blue dress was too big on you. Love the pants and stripey dress, though!

I really love the teal dress but I can see how it is a little big! I am LOVING those jeans! Are you able to buy the items if you don’t do the Stitch Fix program? I would so buy those jeans!

Good call on the jeans. People shy away from tailoring and I have no idea why. A 6-10 dollar alteration can make a good outfitting stunning.

I love the detailed reviews you’ve given – I love the idea but I think the clothes are a bit beyond my price points right now – perhaps in a few months I’d give it a go

Great fix! I would have kept and returned the same items you did. In fact on my last stitch I got the SAME long maxi dress you got in your first stitch!! And just this recent stitch I got a pair of navy stretchy skinny jeans and I would have classified them the same way as you “OMG are these things going to fit?” and then ” oh yeah fits like a glove!” sorta like a pajama pant feel LOL

I just got my second Fix and got a similar crew neck top. I had the same thoughts you did! Mine went back too.

I signed up for Stitch Fix a billion years ago but I never actually got a fix. Just signed up for my first delivery, thanks for the inspiration 🙂

I got my 5th Stitch Fix this month. I officially give up I often love the style and would love to keep the item, but the fit is just strange. Now and then the price is the deal breaker – I love the item but the price is not justified due to quality or I just do not spend that much for the item in question, such as $148 for a pair of jeans in my February 2014 shipment. I do not buy my clothes at discount stores, I shop at places like Coldwater Creek, Talbots, Chicos, etc.

The skinny jeans and the chunky necklace for sure!

LOVE that you kept the jeans anyway. I feel like great skinny jeans are SO hard to find and getting them hemmed is fairly inexpensive.. if you can part with them for that long! 🙂

I think you made all the right choices. I am really considering giving Stitch Fix a try. You have gotten some really cool things.

I love stitch fix! Would you mind sharing if you received referral credit and therefore received all this stuff for free? isn’t shopping so much more fun if you don’t have to pay for it!! It is AMAZING the number of bloggers that now get so much money for stitch fix based on referral credit. WOW! I know one blogger said she had over $500 she planned to donate! Did you pay for your first fix then had credit from there on out? I appreciate you sharing your finds! Those outfits look great on you!

I’m jealous, all of your stuff is super cute! I tried Stitch Fix twice and both times I barely liked anything. I put a lot of time into answering the questions and gave good feedback after the first one, but then the second one was even worse. Maybe stylists in CA just don’t know how to pick out stuff for a NY winter? Sigh.

33 Jamie February 20, 2014 at 10:45 am

So funny – I just got my fix in the mail yesterday, and I got the same dress as you! (The cream/tan striped lace one). I think I’m keeping it also – cute! 🙂

I got my Fix late March, and got the same striped dress too! I loved it, but it was a little too small. I also got (and kept) the Just Black skinny jeans. They fit great! Very interesting to see what others are getting! Thanks for sharing.
