stitch fix box #2 review

Since I still had T-Mobile credits available, I decided to give Stitch Fix a second try (you can read about my first experience here). This time around my stylist nailed it!

These were my three favorite items:


None of the pictures do these three items justice. The shirt was really flattering (and I LOVED the patterns), the vest was hands down a total winner and the pants were the most comfortable jeans I've ever put on. That being said, the price for these three items would be $194! That is just way out of my financial ballpark. Ironically enough, if I kept all 5 items it would only (only) cost $174 because of the 25% discount. If I had loved the last two shirts (one I hated and one--the one under the vest in the photo above--was okay) I would probably be tempted to get it, but since I know I probably wouldn't wear those last two shirts I just can't bring myself to spend that kind of money. I am probably going to keep either the jeans or the shirt,but I haven't decided which yet. In lieu of the vest, I found this one at Costco for a mere $20 and immediately ordered it in gray:

The nice thing about this box is that I never in a million years would have tried on the pants or the vest on my own and they were my two favorite items. The jeans were kind of a cross between a legging and a jean, so I'm thinking about trying to get a much more affordable pair of jeggings (hell has apparently frozen over because I swore I would never wear such a thing). My only regret is that I have 3 days to pick what I am going to keep. If I knew I could find comparable jeans for less I would totally send the Stitch Fix ones back, but I can't let go just yet. I have until tomorrow to decide so I keep trying them on and throwing around whether a higher quality pair of jeans like this is worth it. I am eyeing these from Target for $30, but they don't have them in store so I can't try them before I have to send back my items. This is such a hard decision, but if it's the hardest one I have to make then I can consider myself pretty darn lucky.

  1. I would say finding jeans is the hardest and worst thing, so if you found a pair you like it might be worth the splurge! I would wear them around the house all day to make sure they don't sag but I think the other items you would more easily find dupes vs. the jeans :)

    1. I think you may be right! I'm going to hit the mall today and see if I can find something comparable for less, but if not I think I'm keeping them!

  2. I have that Regina top and love it!! :) Happy this was a much better Fix for you! One suggestion - FB has quite a few Stitch Fix buy/sell/trade groups. Many ladies keep all five items to take advantage of the discount and sell whatever they don't want on that page for the discounted price plus shipping. I've done this a few times and had good luck.
