Stitch Fix Experience #2

A couple of months ago I wrote about my first experience with Stitch Fix, an online clothing design service that sends the clothes to the customer. Using Stitch Fix is easy:

1. Sign up
2. Enter preferences
3. Receive 5 items of clothing and/or accessories
4. Send back what you don’t want, keep what you do.
5. Log on to your page, pay for what you’re keeping, and leave comments about each item.
There is a $20 styling fee for each fix, but you can apply that towards anything you purchase. Each box comes with a group of styling ideas, giving suggestions on how to wear your new duds. 
I received my 2nd Stitch Fix box in March, but because of my non-blogging days of Lent, I’m just getting around to telling you about it now. 
Item #1: Pomelo Downing Striped Knit Shirt
$44

Item #2: Margaret M Kayla Skinny Jean
$98
I do love a blue and white striped shirt, but this one made me look wider than the other two I already own. The suggestion card was helpful, though. It gave me ways to style the striped shirts hanging in my closet.
Result: Nope.
I loved the color of these jeans. I really went back and forth on keeping these, but in the end, the price tag was just too high.
Result: Not until I get a raise.

Item #3: Pomelo Arcade Dot Print Chambray Top
$68
The material of this top is so soft and doesn’t need ironing. That’s a win right there! I like it because it has the casual look of a denim shirt, but the dots give it a special touch. I can wear it with khakis or wear it open with a cami and a maxi skirt. 
Result: In my closet
Item #4: 41 Hawthorn Delta Lightweight Aztec Infinity Scarf
$32
This scarf was just okay. It went well with the jacket I bought in my last Fix, but I didn’t have a lot more in my closet to match. $32 is more than I would pay for a scarf. I just don’t wear them enough.
Result: Sent back
Item #5: Papermoon Hallowell Ombre Knit Sweater
$48
I so wanted to love this sweater when I pulled it out of the box. On the style card, I thought it looked like it should be longer than it actually is:
The cropped length just didn’t work for me. Plus, the threads were so delicate, there was already a snag in the shoulder caused by the garment tag. I knew it wouldn’t last long around my jaggedy fingernails.
Result: Back in the mail. But I really want a long version with thicker thread.

I only kept one item this time, but I still think the Stitch Fix experience is worth not going to the mall. Anything that lets me try on clothes in the comfort of my own home and offers pain-free return shipping is okay in my book.
