Stitch Fix #6 February 2017

It’s been a long time since my last Stitch Fix delivery.  I skipped my December fix because I was spending a lot of money on Christmas gifts.  There was no money left over for new clothes.  Therefore, I was really excited to get Stitch Fix #6!

Check out what my stylist chose for me in Stitch Fix #6. Then, enter to win a chance to try Stitch Fix for yourself.

How Stitch Fix Works

If you’re not familiar with Stitch Fix, it’s a service that delivers new clothes directly to your door.  You basically have your own personal stylist choosing clothing for you.  If you’re working long hours or busy with the kids all day, it saves you a trip to the store.  This is perfect for me, because I rarely get a chance to go shopping alone – and trying on clothes with a 3-year old running around is almost impossible.  Here’s how Stitch Fix works.

Step 1

Go to the Stitch Fix website, and sign up.

Step 2

Answer the questions about your style to help your stylist choose great items for you.  You can even create a special Pinterest board just with styles you like.  That will really help your stylist visualize perfect outfits for you.  You can also write a special note to your stylist requesting specific items you need.  Another great feature is that you can select the price range where you’re comfortable.

Step 3

Choose a date to have your fix delivered.  You can choose how often you want to receive a new fix.  Right now, I get them every other month.  However, it’s really easy to change that or skip a fix.  That’s what I did in December.

Step 4

When your fix is delivered, try on the five pieces of clothing.  Decide what you love and want to keep and what to send back.  You have three business days to make up your mind.  Then, just put any clothing you’re returning in the bag that is provided by Stitch Fix.  Postage is paid, so just drop it in a mailbox or take it to the post office.  Returns are so easy!

Step 5

Sign into your Stitch Fix account, and let them know what you’re keeping and what you’re sending back.  You can also leave feedback, so your next fix is even more personalized for you.  You will only be charged for the items you keep.  There is a $20 styling fee, but it is applied to anything you buy.

Stitch Fix #6

Check out what my stylist chose for me in Stitch Fix #6. Then, enter to win a chance to try Stitch Fix for yourself.

Are you ready to see what I got in my February fix?  I opened the beautiful box and peeled back the tissue paper.  The first thing you’ll find in your fix is a note from your stylist.  This time, my stylist was Janina.  She told me about each of the items she chose for me.  Style cards are always attached to the note.  They show two different ways to style each of the pieces of clothing in your fix.  I love this feature and keep all of the style cards from all of my fixes.  Here are the clothes Janina chose for me.

Portar Fitted Pullover from 41Hawthorn

The Porter Fitted Pullover is one of the styles I received in Stitch Fix #6.

I was so excited to see the Portar Fitted Pullover in my fix!  I need more shirts that are long enough to wear with leggings.  In my last trunk from Trunk Club, I kept a great pair of black leggings.  However, I only have two shirts that are long enough to wear with them.  In addition to loving the length of this shirt, I also loved the stripes and pretty coral details around the arms and neckline.  As soon as I tried it on with my leggings, I knew it was a keeper.  This is such a comfy outfit for school.  I can move around in it easily and sit on the floor with my students.

Fausta Elbow Patch Raglan Knit Top from Papermoon

The Fausta Elbow Patch Raglan Knit Top is one style I received in Stitch #6. Check out the other pieces I received, and enter the giveaway to try Stitch Fix for yourself.

I was a little bit less excited about the Fausta Elbow Patch Raglan Knit Top when I pulled it from the box.  I wasn’t sure about the brown elbow patches, and the shirt seemed kind of plain.  However, when I put it on, it was so comfortable!  The fabric is really soft, and it fits perfectly.  It also looks great with a pair of jeans.  I’ll be able to wear this shirt for dress-down Fridays at school.

Leena Printed Skirt from Renee C and Sena Bar Back Blouse from 41Hawthorn

The Sena Bar Back Blouse and the Leena Printed Skirt were two of the styles included in Stitch Fix#6. Find out what else I received, and enter to win a giveaway to try Stitch Fix for yourself.

I decided to try the next two items on together.  I loved the Leena Printed Skirt as soon as I put it on.  It fits perfectly around the waist, and it is a great length for school.  I own some black shirts that would look great with it, and I wasn’t too sure about the Sena Bar Back Blouse when I first took it out of the box.  I usually like my tops a little more fitted.  However, it did look good with the skirt, and I liked the bar back.  It is different from all the other shirts I own.  Normally, I might have sent it back, but I ended up keeping it.  I’ll tell you why in a minute.

Lawler Two Pocket Top from Skies are Blue

The Lawler Two Pocket Top is one of the styles in Stitch Fix #6. Find out what else I received, and enter to win a giveaway to try Stitch Fix for yourself.

I really liked the colors of the Lawler Two Pocket Top when I first saw it.  I knew it would look great with a pair of gold skinny jeans I bought at New York and Company a while ago.  When Tony saw this outfit, he told me it was a keeper.  It was by far his favorite from this fix.  It is also different from all the other shirts I own.  I don’t have too much plaid.

Final Thoughts . . .

As you can see, I decided to keep everything from Stitch Fix #6.  Janina did a great job finding items that fit my style.  Plus, I hadn’t bought anything new for myself since before Christmas.  I deserved some new pieces for my wardrobe.  As I told you earlier, I might not have kept the Sena Bar Back Blouse.  However, another thing I love about Stitch Fix is that they give you 25% off if you keep everything.  Without the discount, my total would have been $282.00.  With the discount and my $20 styling fee applied, it came down to $191.50. I basically got the blouse for free.  How could I say no to that?

. . . And a Giveaway

Are you interested in trying Stitch Fix but afraid you might not like what your stylist picks for you?  Then, let me cover the styling fee for you.  Two lucky winners will each get a $20 Stitch Fix gift card.  That way, if you don’t like a single thing in your fix, your $20 styling fee will be covered for you.  Hopefully that won’t be the case, and you’ll fall in love with at least one piece you receive.  That’s happened for me every time.  Then, you’ll get $20 off the items you choose.  Just enter the giveaway below for a chance to win!

  1. I did Stitch Fix for a while and received some pieces that I would never have tried on in the store – really got me out of my style comfort zone, which is good. I love the skirt and the long sweater in the first picture the best, but you look great in all of them, Tara! And my husband is named Tony too!

      Thanks, Cathy! I wore the sweater to work and got lots of compliments on it. I didn’t realize we were both married to a Tony!

      Thanks, Kellie! It’s so much fun getting clothes delivered to your house! Plus, I never get to go shopping, so Stitch Fix helps me update my wardrobe.

  2. I love the first top. I have several pairs of leggings myself, but only one sweater that works well with them. It’s great that your stylist got everything right this month.

      I was really excited when I realized I liked everything in this fix. Normally, I only find one item I really like. I’m going to have to ask for more sweaters like that, because it’s really hard for me to find tops that work with leggings.

  3. I didn’t know about the 25% off if you keep everything. What a deal! I have to say that I really loved the raglan top and the plaid one the most. I just love that simple style and those types of tops are perfect for me to wear to work as I move around with lots of dusty books all day. Haha. 😉

      This was the first time I kept everything. Normally I just pick my one favorite to keep, but this time I really liked them all. . .and the 25% off really helped. I also look for comfortable clothes, since I’m moving around with kids all day.
