My highly anticipated second Stitch Fix arrived today! I was so excited to find it sitting on the table when I got home today. I mentioned it early in the week, but I had peeked at what was coming and was SO excited about this time. If you’ll recall, I got my first Stitch Fix in November (you can check out that review here), but wasn’t thrilled with any of the pieces, so I sent them all back.

If you aren’t familiar, Stitch Fix is a personal styling service for women. You provide your style, size, and budget preferences, and they will send you a package of stylish goodies to try on at home. There is a $20 styling fee that is applied to your order should you decide to keep any / all of the pieces.  And if you keep all of the pieces, you get a 25% discount on everything!

The Box

My last Stitch Fix shipped via USPS Priority Mail, but this one shipped via FedEx.  Not sure what their normal shipping method is, but both are fast and both times they arrived a day before I was expecting them, so either way is fine.

Second First Look

The first look?  THRILLED!  Ahh!  I had read about all the items online, but it’s not the same as seeing them in person.

Stitch Fix sends an “invoice” of sorts which includes a listing of everything you received in your box, the total for all the items and then goes on to list what all the items would cost after your $20 credit for your Styling Fee plus your 25% discount would be.  My Fix would cost $210 if I end up keeping everything.  Here’s what was included:

~Kensie Adrian Short Sleeve Floral Blouse ($68): This was the shirt I was least excited about, but it’s growing on me.  It’s a stretchy material and has the floral print on the front and is solid black on the back. I can (now) totally see myself wearing these with leggings and a cardigan.  I probably wouldn’t do any of Stitch Fix’s looks, but I like looking at the ideas.

~Kut From the Cloth Paige Skinny Jean ($78): I love these stretchy jeans!  It’s like wearing jeans but feeling like you are wearing stretch pants.  Not a bad deal at all.  I total love the look on the left in the style cards and it’s something I never would have put together myself.

~Olive & Oak Sweeny Chevron Knit Crew Neck Sweater ($68): I wrote in my Notes to my Stylist (who was Jasmine) that I liked a chevron scarf that had previously been featured and while she said she couldn’t locate it, she was able to find me a chevron sweater! Totally cozy and cute and you know I am keeping this!

~Staccato Natalia Stripe Draped Front Cardigan ($58):  This is SO me.  I believe I also wrote in my notes (I meant to make a Pinterest board but never got around to it), that I liked open front cardigans so this was great.  They paired it with a pop of color, but I’d totally just wear black.  Wait, *maybe* red.  It is the holiday season after all.

~Rikka Henry Birds on Branch Infinity Scarf ($28):  Is it even a question if I like this or not?  I LOVE it.  Like I love it.  I knew what it was, but I had no clue it was going to be ORANGE and grey!  Yay!!!  Love. Love. Love.  And only $28? I feel like I got the bargain of the month.

I am SO glad I gave Stitch Fix another chance and I am actually thinking I am going to keep my ENTIRE Fix!  Eeek!  I would lose my $70 discount if I didn’t keep it all, so it just makes sense to keep it all since I pretty much love it all anyway!  And I am already plotting my next fix.  I didn’t think that anything was crazy overpriced or anything either, which I appreciated.  5 items for $210?  That’s not bad AT ALL!

    YOU GOT ME AGAIN!!! I just scheduled my first fix! I really was like ah that’s too much $ but I really could use something new – and having someone just do it for me – and mail it to me… yeah this might be great!! I hope!

    1. Jennifer

      I can’t wait to see what you think and see what you get!

  2. Bethany

    I LOVE this box!! I too am a chevron addict, but I love absolutely everything they sent you.

    1. Jennifer

      It was so great this time!!!

  3. Suzanne

    I so want to do stitch fix! After the first of the year I may have to try it!

    1. Jennifer

      You should schedule now for Jan! They seem to fill up fast!

  4. Nina

    Ahhh OK I think that’s all the convincing I needed to try it out…how does the fit go with everything? I always end up trying on different sizes in the store so I worry it would be just a weird fit all the time!

    1. Jennifer

      I thought the fit was great. TTS.

  5. Kayleigh

    My first fix is scheduled for 12/23. Your box had cute stuff! Loved that scarf. Can’t wait for my fix!

    1. Jennifer

      LOVED the scarf!! I can’t wait to hear what you get!

    1. Jennifer

      I couldn’t believe it when I opened up the box. Its so nice!

  6. Kate

    I’m obsessed with that cardigan!

    1. Jennifer

      Ahh, I love it!!!

    LOVE that scarf!!! I got my first fix last month and all I kept was my scarf. I liked the other items but they were ginormous on me. I got that same Natalia cardigan and it was so big that I actually wrote in my item feedback that it made me look like a clown. Lol. I really wish I’d gone with smaller sizing from the beginning since I really liked all the items. Will definitely give them another try. But now I want that scarf you got! 🙂
    I’m glad you liked your entire order. What a fun service!

    1. Jennifer

      Which scarf did you get? I don’t think I have seen any I didn’t like!

  8. Karen

    Oh man, I wish they had included that scarf in my fix! The only thing I kept in mine was the skinny jeans. Hmm… maybe I should give them another shot too?

    1. Jennifer

      Maybe?? Everyone raved about it and I didn’t get it at all. My Fix was just not very exciting the first time. But they made up for it!

  9. Angela D.

    I love all these… but oh my gosh that scarf! lol. i may have to finally give stichfix a try.

    1. Jennifer

      Do it! I was hesitant, but after this fix I am hooked.

  10. Alicia

    Ah! I’m so glad you reviewed this. I’ve been wanting to try them out and this might make me do it.

    1. Jennifer

      Try it!!!

  11. Tiffany

    I’ve had several fixes and they have been very hit or miss. My last fix was by far my favorite, however, I didn’t keep everything. I don’t always think they listen to what I put in my notes as they tend to keep sending things that are opposite of what I ask. But, I do love getting new stuff in the mail to try on!

    1. Jennifer

      You’d think they’d always want to listen so you’d buy everything!

  12. Shannon N.

    AWESOME Stitchfix!! I love those pants. I got the same ones in black. Consider they increased my pant ownership up to two pairs, I didn’t mind paying the price tag on them. I love that scarf. My next one is scheduled for Dec. 26th and I asked for Stitchfix giftcards for Christmas. 🙂

    1. Jennifer

      I already scheduled my next one!

  13. Jillian

    I just got my first fix yesterday and I am in love! I also got a Rikka infinity scarf but in a teal chevron style! I definitely recommend updating pintrest cause I had pinned 3 chevron infinity scarves to my board and was so excited to see one in my box. So excited for my 2nd box-this one is addicting!

    1. Jennifer

      Ahhhh, I need to get that teal chevron scarf!!!!!! That sounds fabulous!
