Fashion over 50: Another Stitch Fix

Good Morning!

It’s Wednesday again and today I have another Stitch Fix to share with you.  It’s not all styled perfectly or anything, but I thought I’d show you the latest box I received so you can check it out for yourself.  I had some credit in my account, so I figured I would try it again to see how this one went.  This is not sponsored or anything, but I do have a referral link above if you want to check it out.  If people buy though your referral link, you get credit added to your account, so that’s how I ended up with credit to spend.

Here’s what was in my Stitch Fix box this time.  Again, if you haven’t tried it, Stitch Fix is a subscription service where a personal stylist chooses clothing for you based on a profile you fill out. You can look at clothing choices and say whether you like it or love it and that gives them an idea of what styles you like and are comfortable with.  You also check boxes indicating price points you are comfortable with.

I ended up keeping the long sweater and these dark brown leggings by Liverpool, a brand I’ve worn before. They are not super inexpensive, but nice pieces to add to my Fall wardrobe.

The pants were $78 and the sweater $68, so I kept them and used my credit and had to spend about $50 for both pieces.  I do think they will be versatile pieces to have in my closet.  The scarf I got from my last thredUP shopping trip.

This gray Boho embroidered top was just OK for me.  Nothing really special and so I sent it back.  I have the price box checked at $50 to $100, so most of these items sent were around $50 to 60 each.  I didn’t feel this was worth the money.

Same with this drapey long T.  Just not something I felt that great in, so I didn’t keep it either.

This was a Calvin Klein leopard top, but again, not something I was wild about, so I sent it back as well.

So, that’s another shopping box from Stitch Fix.  I know so many women use the service and have great success with it, so if you are not near a lot of clothes shopping spots or want to give them a try, go over to Stitch Fix and check them out.  That is a referral link, just FYI.  I’m still on the fence about how Stitch Fix works, but the best deal is if you buy all 5 items in the box, you get a 25% discount on the whole order, so that’s definitely the best deal. But if I’m not crazy about 3 items, then I can’t see buying them and keeping them.  So far, with 3 boxes, I have only kept one or 2 things out of each box.  But, I do hear a lot of rave reviews on Stitch Fix out there in blogland!

Have you tried Stitch Fix yet and what do you think?

  1. Hi Rhoda: I haven’t tried Stitch Fix but, like you, I see it on the blogs a lot. I think the pieces you kept look great on you. Always enjoy your sense of style. I haven’t gotten into the buy online trend as much as other folks. I still like to go to the stores and try on clothing and shoes. But, I know online buying and subscription services are the wave of the future. Guess I’m still a little “old fashioned” in that way!

  2. I’ve been thinking of trying this for a long time and might as well give it a go. I see they have a quarterly shipping option. I’d like to see what else is out there for plus size folks like me.

  3. I tried Stitch Fix, and I found, like you, I was keeping only one or two pieces from each box. In general, I felt the pieces being sent to me were too loud, too short & not age appropriate.
    At age 70 & wearing plus size, I would prefer not to wear dresses & skirts above my knees or wear tops with cap sleeves.

      I had this same problem. Tried three boxes and kept one item from each just so not to lose the $20 fee. Clothes just not age and body style appropriate even though I told them over and over.

    I did try Stitch Fix using your link quite a while back when you posted about it and I’ve loved it! Not being a fan of shopping trips it’s been a a great deal for me. From the first box I kept only one item but after sending notes to the stylists and posting a lot of photos of what I like to wear on Pinterest I had great luck with my second fix and kept all of the items. I asked to keep that same stylist for future fixes because unlike the first stylist she seemed to ‘get me’. Other than exchanging a few items for size adjustments I’ve kept all the items in each Fix since then and am always receiving compliments from friends and even a stranger or two on what I’ve been wearing. I’ll be 70 on my next birthday and have gained about 45 lbs. in the last year due to a medication issue and consequently have had trouble finding stylish clothes I feel look good on me! Laura, my stylist, has been such a help to me so Stitch Fix is a great benefit. Hopefully I’ll have to have all these clothes altered when this weight comes off 😀. Thank you for making me more aware of Stitch Fix, I hope your stylist will do better with your future fixes!

    • Hi, VB, that’s so good to hear, I’m glad it’s worked out so well for you. I hear lots of happy reviews, so they are definitely filling a niche for a lot of women who don’t like to shop.

  5. I use a similar service called you get more items in your box my stylist has been in target with my boxes plus the prices are really affordable …I haven’t tried stitch fix yet

  6. Stitch Fit is really not a match for me. i don t use their service anymore. They were always off the mark where I was concerned.
