Last month I told you about Stitch Fix and shared my first impressions of their subscription service. I just got my Stitch Fix #2 shipment from them and wanted to share it with all of you. If you missed my first post, check it out to get more of the specifics on Stitch Fix and how it works.
I must admit I was a little disappointed in my 2nd shipment. Mainly because I didn’t end up with a bunch of items I liked. However, they do need to get feed back in order to get a better idea of your personal style and how things fit you. So even though I wasn’t jumping for joy, I am going forward with hopes they will get a better handle on sizing for me. Additionally, I think I really liked the items sent in my first shipment so to have so few items that worked in this one was a bit of a letdown.
First up is a green Kia Keyhole Bishop Sleeve Dress for $88.
I loved the color and the fit was fine. However, it was too short for what I feel comfortable wearing. I could have worn it with leggings. However, I wasn’t wanting to invest in this item if that was the only way I could wear it. I would rather have a tunic style top to wear with leggings.
Next was another dress – Alexio Mixed Print Dress for $48.00.
The price is great, but I wasn’t that wild about the print. When I put the dress on it was way too tight for my hips. I am a curvy girl and did specify that as part of my profile. Even if the dress fit me properly, I don’t were sleeveless dresses. So, I would need a cardigan or sweater to wear with it. Plus, the print would just not have looked good on my lower half. Just not for this girl with hips. That is all you would have noticed. It might have been ok if the print was used for a top. Also, the length was too short for me on this dress. This items was a definite no for me.
The third item was the one I was most excited about when I opened my package a navy Filbert Polka Dot Print 3/4 sleeve blouse for $58.
Definitely an item I liked. Problem with this one is when I went to try it on. I could not even get the blouse over “my girls” to try it on. The shirt was more fitted than it looked. So the size sent was too tight for me. If the shirt had fit me I would have kept it for sure. Too bad you can’t leave a comment to have them send you an item next fix in a different size.
My fourth items was a off-white Kinsley Cut-Out Neck Line Blouse for $48.
The item fit fine. I wasn’t thrilled with the neck line and just couldn’t see getting use from this blouse in my wardrobe. So this item also went back.
Last was a purple (I would call it magenta) Scarlet drop sleeve striped knit top.
This was the one item that DID work. The fit was perfect and I loved the color. I also had all the items shown for one of the ways to style this item that was shown on the style card. This one was a keeper. So I guess my #2 #Stitchfix could be considered a success since I kept at least 1 item.

I just wanted to let you know. You can request items be sent again in a different size. They can’t guarantee it, but when you schedule you’re next fix leave a note for the stylist saying you’d like “insert shirt name here in size x”
I’ve been making requests for things since box 1 and 80% of the time they can make it happen and if not they’ll send something similar.
I also have a note about jeans in my style profile that I need a waist number up. I’m typically a 2, but a 26 is just a tiny bit too small. I’ve found that to be helpful as well.
I hope you enjoy your fixes in the future.
[…] I have my third Stitch Fix to share with all of you. I must say this fix went much better than #2, but I only kept 2 […]
My second fix wasn’t great either. I kept one item. But the feedback is really important so I’m sure your future fixes will just get better and better. I LOVE some of the stuff they sent you, but based on your fit problems, I bet the same would have happened to me. (too short, too tight on the girls) 🙂
