My March Stitch Fix – To Keep It All Or To Not Keep It All?

March 5, 2015


Erin Schrader

And then it happened again. Stitch Fix went and knocked another box out of the park. From the minute I opened it I knew “oh no, I’m in trouble…with my husband.” Apparently after 30 some fixes, my stylist has an idea of what I like 😉 If only men were that easy to train…
For those of you who haven’t yet given Stitch Fix a try, it goes like this. 
1. Head to the Stitch Fix website and fill out an extensive profile. You will select what styles of clothing you like, discuss your sizing, let them know what body parts you like to flaunt and what you like to cover up, your preferred price range, and so on.
2. Sign up to receive your first fix. THIS WILL BE THE MOST EXCITING MOMENT OF YOUR LIFE. Hypothetically speaking…or in my case, realistically speaking. 
3. Wait for your fix to arrive! Open your front door, look down, and squeal in excitement. It’s natural, just let it happen. Open that box and feast your eyes on the 5 items that your stylist hand selected for you. Do a little happy dance, get those jazz hands working, and shake what your mamma gave ya.
4. Decide what you are keeping and what you are returning! You have 3 days to decide so choose wisely. Take this time to try everything on in the comfort of your own home home (no dressing rooms that are so small you can hardly turn around in, no awkward moments of people looking at your mismatched socks, and no avoiding stepping on the chewed piece of gum that somebody else’s two year placed on the carpet). Look through your closet to see what else you have that coordinates with the items and so on. Alright good, know what you are sending back? Awesome – the postage is already taken care of for you! Just head to your post office and drop it off! 
5. Repeat scheduling your next fix over and over again until you feel as though you have enough clothes to last you a life time [hint: you will never reach this point, it is impossible, I have learned]. 
Some of you have asked what the typical price range is — they say that the average price per item is $55. Sometimes the items are considerably less and sometimes they are more. I will note that the quality is top notch and I have never ever had a problem with any of the items that I have kept! 
Stitch Fix is made to bring you all of the items that you never knew you always wanted. 
My March fix was once again full of items that excited. In the last couple of posts I have shared my tips for achieving fix success — 
1. Be specific in your notes to your stylist — if you are in need of black pants, tell them you want a pair of black pants. Want something bright pink for your closet? Let them know. 
2. Keep your Pinterest fashion board updated and pin items from Stitch Fix that you love – I love their this just in! and ladies in stitch fix boards! Want something similar to what you see below? Pin away baby. 
Without further ado, here is my my 32nd fix..
1. Olive & Oak – Mulliken Raglan Striped Knit Shirt – Small [kept]
Do you know what I love more than a baseball tee, distressed jeans, and a pair of Converse? Macaroni and cheese. But that’s it. This shirt is everything and I can’t wait for Spring to roll around so I can wear more of it. Also, side note : the above pictures were taken during a snow storm hence the fuzzy white things flying all over the place and why I then had to move inside for the remainder of the post. God bless Indiana. 
2. Margaret M – Emer Polka Dot Print High Waisted Cropped Pant – Small [kept]

YOU GUYS. I requested a pair of work pants in this fix and boy did they deliver. These babies are amazing. From the fit (hello stretch), to the feel, to the look — it is all perfection. I love the polka dot pattern as it makes the “serious professional” look a little more fun. I can’t wait to receive other work pants in future fixes. Preferably ones that also have no buttons or zippers. I like efficiency in my life.

3. Pixley – Martina Slub Knit Open Cardigan – Small [returned]

I almost don’t want to talk about this one. For whatever dumb reason I returned this cardigan. When trying it on I felt like it was just average. Looking back I think the color is bangin’ and hello, it has pockets. Never say no to pockets friends. Off to go hang my head in shame….
4. Kut From The Kloth – Kate Distressed Boyfriend Jean – 2 [kept]

I had pinned these a few weeks ago and my sweet stylist Layla, found them for me! I have a thing for boyfriend jeans (mostly because I have only ever had one serious boyfriend which is my now husband so it’s like I am living vicariously through them or something). Anything with a little bit of distress on them is a-okay in my book.

 5. Gilli – Sina Vneck Printed Maxi Dress – Small [kept]

If you know me at all, you know I am a maxi addict. I should clarify, a maxi dress addict. #teamtampons. Even though I typically wouldn’t choose a vneck maxi for myself (it makes the ladies look rather large) I love the print of this dress. I also love that I can pair a jean jacket with it for a cool evening out. Props to maxis for changing the leg shaving game forever.

And that concludes March’s fix — which item is your favorite?
