Stitch Fix Review - February 2016

As part of my blog covering parenting, I like to look at ways to make being a mom more simple.  Sometimes, that will include products or services that I have found useful as a mom.

Today, I wanted to take an opportunity to introduce you to Stitch FixAfter I had A, I felt totally lost in my personal style.  My body had changed and I really needed a new wardrobe to fit my transition into being a mom. (Plus, who has time to go out and shop with a newborn?) The only problem was, I had no clue how to be a stylish mom. 

In stepped Stitch Fix, a subscription service that pairs you with a personal stylist.  Based off a survey you take, your stylist picks clothes for you and sends you 5 items each month (or every other month, or every other week, you can select  how often you want a fix.)  Don't worry, one of the topics on the survey covers how much you are willing to pay for items.  The more you fix, the better your stylist becomes acquainted with you.  This was actually my second fix, my first was totally fabulous.  This one honestly left me feeling a little ho-hum.  But they really invested in my Pinterest board and supplied me with a couple of pieces I had pinned.

Do you want to see my February Fix

1. RD Style - Tinia Dolman Pullover Sweater - $68.00

The first time I tried this sweater on (which came straight from my Pinterest board, yay) with skinny jeans I wasn't totally loving it.  I felt a bit frumpy to be honest.  But then I tried it again with a long under shirt and leggings and fell madly in love.  This look is great and comfy.  Plus, pairing it with this $5 Walmart statement necklace dressed it up enough for a church outfit. 


Verdict : Keeper

2. Liverpool - Kaesen Skinny Jean - $88

These were a basic dark wash skinny jean. In my note to the stylist this month, I asked for jeans. Nothing to fancy about them.  I paired it with the shirt from my first fix and the Crisscross flats.  I already had similar jeans, and since that was the case, I couldn't see myself spending that much for another pair of dark wash skinnies.

Verdict : Returned

3. Arrata - Lebray Button Down Top - $64

I loved picking this button down top out of the box.  It was very cute, except I don't really feel like I'm a button down type of girl.  I tried in on a couple of different ways.  I still didn't like it on.

Verdict : Returned

4. Mia - Afina Crisscross Flats - $55

I'm a big fan of flats.  I wear flats just about every where I go.  And, I'm a big fan of Mia.  I've had a couple of Mia shoes before and they have always lasted me a while.  To be honest, I'm hard on my flats.  So, I was ecstatic when I saw the shoe bag.  They had these Crisscross beauties.  Unfortunately, I felt like they made my feet look fat and wierd...duh, duh, doh!   

Verdict : Returned

5. Lila Ryan - Liza Distressed Skinny Jeans - $98

Ugh, why did I have to love these jeans so much.  They felt amazing and looked fabulous.  I really wrestled with the price sticker on these.  I chose the $50-100 range on jeans and these were right at the top.  I didn't love them that much.  But don't they look fabulous!

Verdict : Sadly Returned

Stitch Fix charges a $20 styling fee, which can be credited towards items you keep.  So, its worth it to try and keep one thing.  I am so happy with the Pullover Sweater.  It was very comfy for our Super bowl party.  If you decide to keep all 5 items, they also give a 25% discount which for this fix was $93.25 (a whole item free!)  But I wasn't loving all the pieces this go around.

Don't let this fix deter you from trying Stitch Fix yourself.  My first Fix was fantastic!  I loved all 5 pieces.

If you want to try Stitch Fix today, I would love it if you used my referral link here.  And have fun with your Fix!!
