STITCH FIX REVIEW JANUARY 2017
STITCH FIX REVIEW JANUARY 2017

If you are new to TheBoxQueen, I invite you to start from here to read about how Stitch Fix works, and how to get the best Stitch Fix possible for you!! Also below find some of my Stitch Fix highlights.

You can find my Pinterest Stitch Fix board here. I update it regularly with new Stitch Fix pieces available, and my own SF outfits.

STITCH FIX HIGHLIGHTS

How Stitch Fix Works and How to Get Your Best Fix

At Stitch Fix Website, you fill out a VERY detailed style profile. They ask everything from your height, weight, to top and bottom sizes. You include details on the types of styles you like such as glamorous, preppy or boho as well as a bunch of info on how you want things to fit.

Theboxqueen’s Tip: Be as honest with yourself here as possible. I remember when I first filled my style profile, I answered the Q’s with more of what I dream my style to be rather than what was actually needed for my current lifestyle. I am a mom of three young kids. I love glam style, and incorporate that into my life here and there. The truth is most glam pieces are not functional for my everyday life. I now ask for more casual styles.

My suggestion is to fill out the style profile even if you are not ready to order just now; it’ll give you an idea on your style and you’ll get a sense on what Stitch Fix is about.

  • You pay a $20 styling fee upfront. This is applied to your keepers, so if you keep at least one piece you don’t lose it.  Also when you keep your whole box ( like I did a couple times so far) you get 25% off the entire purchase. I always keep at least one piece as I would hate to lose my styling fee.
  • Make a Pinterest board that is a good representation of your style. Pin types of Stitch Fix pieces you like as well as your own photos so the stylists can see who they are styling and your fashion choices.

Theboxqueen’s Tip: Here is my personal Stitch Fix Pinterest Board. I pin what I like from Stitch Fix here as well as how I styled previous pieces so the stylists can get a better idea of what I like, my body type etc. I think these all help them find the best pieces for me. Feel free to join me there to see what I am liking from new SF items, and my new SF outfits.

  • Leave detailed notes to your stylist when you check out. When it’s time for checking out, they ask you for feedback on your fix. Write why you loved your keeper item(s), and the specific reasons why a piece didn’t work for you.

Theboxqueen’s Tip: I always make sure to include details such as ” The waist was a tad too tight” or ” The color wasn’t flattering on me” or ” The skirt was two inches too short for my taste”. The more specific the better.

  • Make requests but know that there are no guarantees. One fun thing about Stitch Fix is the surprise factor, and how it pushes you out of your comfort zone.
  • If you don’t want to wait too long for fixes, sign up for automatic shipments. You can determine the frequency. I usually go for once a month nowadays but I may make it more frequent again once the new season rolls in.
  • You have three days to decide, and mix and match with your own clothes. When you are done, you send back everything you don’t want to keep; in a prepaid envelope included with your box. Love how quick and easy this system works.
  • I love that SF now offers exchanges. Do you love your items but need a smaller or bigger size? Just let them know to make an exchange. 
  • Stitch Fix now offers petite, and maternity styles and recently started Men’s Styling. YAY!!!!!

I get a lot of e-mails with the question ” What do you ask for in your personal style profile?“.

I ask for pieces that are suitable for a mom of three kids under the age of 12, but who also loves cool, trendy items that can easily be mixed and matched. I think you can definitely be a mom, and stay chic especially with comfy pieces high on style. In addition, I ask for colors, a variety of textures, and prints. I think these bring life to your closet, and also to your existing outfits.

Ready to see what I got in the first Stitch Fix of the year? I thought so! 🙂 I can’t wait to show them all to you. This month I received a patterned tunic, a burgundy cardigan, a pair of glam heels, a crossbody bag, and finally a dress with laser cut details. Let’s begin lovelies.

Dee Elle Abey Tie Waist Tunic

Stitch Fix styled the tie waist tunic in a casual jeans look as well as a fancier skirt outfit. Btw I have the fringe crossbody they show on the styling card. I kept it from this review. So pretty!

Dee Elle Abey Tie Waist Tunic ($64)

Style Tip: This tunic (see this similar style I also love, comes in 3 colors) has so many pretty elements to it. The color mix is beautiful, the small V neck is very flattering, and the length is just right. I also like the drawstring detail as it provides definition. I paired the tunic with my favorite ripped jeans ( current similar style) and latest shoe addition, purple pumps. The crossbody bag (I also love this leather version) that also came in January Stitch Fix box was the final touch to my boho chic look with an edge.

For all of you ladies that are looking for a tunic, pin this beauty as it is really a gorgeous piece, and the design details are universally flattering. I bought this tunic recently in color blue  so I had to pass this one up. Loved this Dee Elle piece and it was a bit hard to put it back in the return envelope I’ll openly admit.

Street Level Braylen Structured Saddle Bag ($54)

The Street Level saddle bag was one of the pieces I pinned on my Stitch Fix Pinterest Board.  It’s big enough to hold more than your essentials, it comes in a rich red color that is striking in person, and to top it all it has a big tassel attached, very on trend! If you are looking for a vegan leather option this is your bag ladies, and if you need the leather version I LOVE this one. 

Status – Returned 

I was trying to decide between my eventual keeper piece (which I adore btw) and this bag. In the end I decided to go with the leather version of the bag for my closet. I use crossbody bags so much that I thought I may as well. If you want a seasonal red bag though this one is certainly a beauty. I do have a green vegan leather bag from Stitch Fix that I still use from time to time.

Style Tip: This dress is in a bold, gorgeous blue, and the scalloped details add a light, girly feel to it. As the dress (also love this lace dark blue dress) is a solid color, and plain otherwise, I wanted to bring in some sparkle with my accessories. I added designer jewelry from this months Rocksbox, including the crystal earrings I got & kept from them. ( If you still have not tried your FREE MONTH of Rocksbox you are seriously missing out. I LOVE having an ever changing high quality jewelry closet from them. – Get your FREE MONTH here with CODE: theboxqueenxoxo )

The red embroidered clutch (see this super cute option) brought in a fun element, and the stunning cage heels (almost identical -same brand) that also came in January Stitch Fix box added a feminine touch that I love.

If you’ve seen my Best of Stitch Fix 2016, and Best Party Outfits posts recently, I have a few of this type of dresses. In addition, although I did like this dress, it did not completely wow me for some reason. I did like the shape & fit.

How gorgeous are these heels? I love the material, the straps, and the heel.

I returned this pair because I found this almost identical pair of heels from the same brand on major sale!! I of course grabbed them. At under $45 I thought I could not go wrong.

Stitch Fix showed the versataility of the RD Cocoon Cardigan by pairing it with jeans and a lovely dress.

RD Style Warren Airy Knit Cocoon Cardigan ($58)

This burgundy cocoon cardigan attracted my attention the moment it came out of the Stitch Fix box. This season I am having a burgundy fest with my wardrobe, and I loved the unique dropped arms, the chunky knit along with the long length of the cardi. My choice was between this piece and the bag but I must say the cardigan finished very strong. It has been worn two times already in less than a week.

Style Tip: I paired my keeper piece with ripped boyfriend jeans, a grey long sleeve top, and my teal pumps. Ladies try light pink with burgundy. I think it is an unexpected pairing and looks pretty. I added a pink bag (love this one), and a couple eye catching jewelry pieces including a House of Harlow necklace, and designer earrings.

  • Susan Jeffries

    I love that tunic!! I never thought to pair it with denim – fabulous!! I would love to try that style. I also would love a blush faux leather moto jacket that I can style into spring. So many cute items here! Susan

    • Theboxqueen

      Blush moto jacket sounds amazing Susan! I love styling that color. Lately I’ve been trying to find different outfit options for my tunics instead of just pairing with leggings. Love to hear you liked it with denim 🙂 Thanks so much! XOXO, Elif

  • msrodeobrat

    I haven’t tried stitch fix yet! I love that blue laser cut dress styled with a leather jacket! I have tried that look for myself and I just haven’t found the right dress to wear with my leather jacket, or the right occasion to wear it. I so enjoy seeing your box each month!

    • Theboxqueen

      I am so happy you enjoy seeing my box reviews. 🙂 Stitch Fix is so fun; I love choosing from what they send me, and especially like the colors & patterns they carry. The blue laser cut dress would look fab with a leather jacket I agree. It is a flattering A line but not too puffy. Happy Wed! XOXO, Elif

  • Sarah Atkinson Stoll

    I’m glad you mentioned burgundy with pink. One of my favorite outfits is a burgundy cardigan with pink jeggings from Gap. Always wondered what everyone else thought lol

    • Theboxqueen

      I am with you on burgundy with pink Sarah. I love them together 🙂 Happy Tuesday. XOXO, Elif

  • Kay Martin-Pence

    Love the cardigan! I had to pin that one for a future fix. Great overall fix, love the colors and styles

    • Theboxqueen

      I can’t recommend the cardigan enough Kay. This was a super fun box. XOXO, Elif

  • Laura

    I am good with winter clothes, but do needs some long sleeve causal shirts, that can be dressed up or down. I think from your fix, I like the tunic, thought I would have to think about the colors

    • Theboxqueen

      Plain long sleeve tees are an important part of my closet too Laura. I have plenty in my closet for layering, and they are like a canvas you can accessories over. Have a fab Tuesday. XOXO, Elif

  • Courtney

    Absolutely love the cardigan and the color! This is something I’d love on myself.. although I cannot afford to try Stitch Fix on the kind of budget I have. This is is a great review for future reference though! 🙂

    • Theboxqueen

      The cardigan is both casual and fun. I am so glad I kept it. Hope you can try SF one day soon in the future Courtney, thanks for saying hi and best of luck with the giveaway. XOXO, Elif

  • Marilyn Nawara

    My favorite piece is the Burgundy Cardigan Sweater — looks great with jeans.

    • Theboxqueen

      Thanks Marilyn, I absolutely love the cardigan. Have a great Tuesday. XOXO, Elif

  • I love the Cocoon Cardigan! It looks so cozy and the color is perfect for winter.

    • Theboxqueen

      It is super cozy over a long sleeve Danielle, and I like that it’ll be more lightweight with a short sleeve in spring. Have a wonderful Tuesday. XOXO, Elif

  • Love the burgundy cardigan. I’ve been obsessed with that color this season, too, and have a burgundy bag (from my September fix) that I adore and carry every day.

    For my next fix I requested a great tunic – I can’t seem to find one I like on my own!

    • Theboxqueen

      Great to hear from you Lauren! Isn’t burgundy such a pretty color. I can’t get enough myself. Now I am curious about your Stitch Fix burgundy bag 🙂 Hope they send you a lovely tunic. Happy Tuesday. XOXO, Elif

  • Happi Shopr

    I am over the moon in love with the red crossbody! That is my favorite of all the items you showed. I am not a part of Stitch Fix.

    • Theboxqueen

      The red crossbody was a great piece I agree. Hope you try Stitch Fix one day, lots of fun. XOXO, Elif

  • Ashley Bree Perez

    I am subscribed to this! I would love this. They have such great items!

    • Theboxqueen

    • Theboxqueen

      I’ve started receiving Stitch Fix’s almost four years ago, and after the first couple of boxes which were trial and error with my stylist learning my taste I’ve been very happy with the service. I LOVE receiving SF every month sometimes a couple times 🙂 Have a fab Tuesday, XOXO, Elif

  • Rebecca

    The tunic is my favorite piece in this Fix! Beautiful!

    • Theboxqueen

      It was a lovely piece Rebecca. Happy Tuesday. XOXO, Elif

  • The tunic really is cute! It has nice eye catching colors without being too overwhelming. I haven’t personally gotten a stitch fix yet – but I could sure use some good cute “normal shoes”, if that makes sense! lol I have tons of sandals and boots and not much in between that I really like.

    • Theboxqueen

      I hope you try them one day it’s so much fun. I love the term “normal shoes” Now that I think of it the majority of my shoes are boots, pumps, and sandals. Don’t know which shoes are more normal anymore haha. Maybe more sensible flats? 🙂 Happy Tuesday! XOXO, Elif

  • Gladys M

    I love the cardigan layered look. My favorite piece is the rebecca minkoff bag – the color is perfect! I recently joined Stitch last year and am looking forward to my next package in the mail!

    • Theboxqueen

      Gladys I adore that bag especially in that cute pink. Happy to hear you also get SF packages. Aren’t they so fun to receive? Have a fab Wed. XOXO, Elif

  • Ashley C

    I subscribed in the past but have stopped right now. I’m looking for some printed sweaters that I can wear to work in the winter!

    demureprincess7(at)gmail(dot)com

    • Theboxqueen

      Printed sweaters are always fun. I love them too. Thanks for saying hi. XOXO, Elif

  • alyssa Lines

    Love the cardigan & color, good pick! My fav item from my boxes is a pair of black skinny jeans….feel like buttah!

    • Theboxqueen

      Those black skinny jeans sound amazing. I love jeans that are soft and comfy. 🙂 Happy Wednesday. XOXO, Elif

  • Ake

    I normally don’t wear tunics because I need something with more shape, but that drawstring might do the trick!

    • Theboxqueen

      The drawstring made this tunic really flattering. 🙂 Happy Wed! XOXO, Elif

  • Sherry

    Love the cardigan!

    • Theboxqueen

      Thanks Sherry! XOXO, Elif

  • Laurie Klebosky

    Is that tunic long in the back? I’m always looking for something to wear with leggings that covers my rear! My favorite item is an olive vest that I fell in love with at first sight!

    • Theboxqueen

      The tunic was long all around, it would be good with leggings. I hear you completely, I also only wear leggings if I can have some coverage on the back 🙂 That olive vest sounds beautiful. XOXO, Elif

  • sarah
