StitchFix No. 4

Another StitchFix delivery, and this one is probably my best one yet. I received this one towards the end of July.

This one made me excited from the moment I opened it. 

What could be cuter than opening a box and having a stack of pretty things creatively tied in a bow with the sash of a skirt?!?!? And there was a great variety of fabrics, colors, and pattern.

This time, all the items were under $50. Again, I feel like my stylist Jen is really figuring out what I like, what I'm comfortable with, and what might be worth the risk. 

I kept two things this time...can you guess which ones?

Renee C Kristy Striped Fine Gauge Sweater in pink This light sweater (perfect for summer and into fall) is really more peachy pink than I'm used to wearing. I loved the way the sweater fit...quite flattering...I loved the soft, light fabric...I love the diagonal stripes. It definitely needs a cami underneath, but still quite cool because of the fabric. I had seen this online in a mint color...and would have kept it in mint...but the coral was just so-so with my skin tone. I have requested it in mint for the future, if possible.

Renee C Robinson Maxi Skirt in navy This maxi skirt has the softest fabric in a beautiful shade of navy. In the picture above, it appears more of a blueberry color...but it is a nice basic navy. It fits comfortably...and I had told Jen I was looking for a navy skirt. Perfect. I kept it and have worn it  several times already. I love long skirts.

Aryeh Celia Flower Print Cotton Skirt I knew I wanted to keep this from the moment I saw that bow. :) Thankfully, it fits well, hits just at the knee...and my girls always ask to see me twirl. It is fully lined and quite comfortable to wear. My only con is that the bow is made to tie in the center...and I prefer off center, which means one end of the bow is significantly longer...and hangs past the end of the skirt. But I love it and make it work!

41Hawthorn Gum Drops Necklace I loved the matte gold of this necklace and the light pink shade of the beads. The quality of this necklace is really nice. I wasn't quite sure if I liked the shape of the beads, though...they kind of reminded me of teeth. I ended up sending this one back...but I did waver on it.

Very J Greer Crochet Racerback Tank  I wasn't sure how I would feel about the crocheted detail of the fabric...but the quality and beauty surprised me. I loved the color and the fit from the front...but I've never been a fan of racerbacks and the back of this was kinda blah for me. It comes with a tank to layer underneath, which is nice. If this had been a normal tank, I'd have kept it. But I sent it back.

For the first time, this shipment arrived past the date when I had scheduled it, but customer service mentioned that they were holding off shipping to ensure they could include a maxi skirt I had mentioned I was looking for. And I ended up keeping that it's nice to know that they are definitely keeping my interests in mind, not just shipping out clothes randomly.

If this is all new to you, here's how it works:

1. You sign up (via an invitation link) online, and once your account is created, you complete your style profile. This part is's kind of like a quiz. You fill out size, fit, and style preferences, as well as a price range you prefer to shop within. You can also link to a Pinterest board, so the stylists can get a good sense of your style.

2. There is a wait time currently involved...but between signing up at the end of February and getting approved, I only waited 11 days. 

3. Once you're approved and your style profile is complete, you schedule when you'd like to receive your first order or "fix." A StitchFix stylist handpicks items for you based on your profile; the fee for this service is $20...but you can apply the full $20 towards your purchase.

4. The package ships USPS and include 5 items. When your StitchFix box arrives, you get to try on clothes in the comfort of your own home...and with pieces from your own wardrobe.  This is one of my favorite features of the company. 

5. Within three days, choose what you love and then send back the rest, using the prepaid Priority envelope enclosed. Go online to StitchFix and checkout. You complete a survey for checkout, which further defines your profile and gives good feedback to the stylist for next time. You pay only for what you keep...and if you keep all items sent, you get 25% off the total purchase. 

6. Then, choose to schedule your next StitchFix shipment as frequently or infrequently as you like! I love that you can leave a note for your stylist about an event or season you want kept in mind when selecting items!

Also, StitchFix now offers gift certificates, so if you've been wanting to try, maybe request a gift certificate for your birthday or Christmas. I love that they offer this now!

Finally, this is not a sponsored post. I am receiving no compensation for this review from StitchFix. However, much like other online retailers (like ZulilyOne Kings LaneSole Society, etc.), StitchFix promotes their brand through referral links. So if you sign up through the links I've given here, I earn a one-time credit with StitchFix if you sign up and purchase. (And once you sign up, if you share your referral code with your friends, YOU earn credit! Win-win!)

I've earned some credit through some of THANK YOU! Let me about your StitchFix experience!
