the one about my third stitch fix experience

In case you don't know by now…I LOVE Stitch Fix.

Like, really love it.

And I love it even more because my last shipment was a total success, meaning I kept all 5 items!

Don't know what Stitch Fix is? You can check out my first two reviews here and here for more information!

I decided to take actual photos of my items this time, since I love them so much. I'm also going to go through the pricing and how to save a little money on your fixes!

Just for a little background info… I set my price settings at "the cheaper the better" for everything except bottoms and dresses. I am willing to pay just a little more for those items.

I also haven't ever made specific requests for items that Stitch Fix posts on Instagram, Facebook, or Pinterest. I know some people do that in their notes to their stylists, but I think that leads to disappointment if they don't receive the items, and I like to have pretty low expectations. I enjoy being surprised!

1. Skies are Blue Topanga Crochet Detail Flutter Sleeve Blouse

Love: The romantic, feminine feel of this top! I also love the lace details and that it feels like a tank top, yet it isn't a tank top (because hi underarm jiggle!). I am also a sucker for white, ivory, off-white, etc. 

Don't Love: My girls will have this thing painted in chocolate finger prints in no time…so I will save it for a date night or other special occasion like a solo trip to Target.

2. Market & Spruce Xander Short Sleeve Woven Back Sweatshirt

Love: Easy going fit, loose and flowy. I adore that peach sheer fabric in the back. This shirt feels very casual without being sloppy. (It's wrinkled because I wore it yesterday!)

Don't Love: It is just a tad boxy, which can make me look fat, pregnant, or both…but overall it's not unflattering. 

3. Octavia Henry Birds on Branch Infinity Scarf

Love: The minty color and the birds! This scarf is HUGE! The stylist thought it could double as a nursing cover, and it definitely could! It is very light weight and airy.

Don't Love: What's not to love?

4. Gilli Koko Maxi Dress

Love: The royal/navy blue color! The stylist chose this for the deep V neck, which is easy to nurse in. This is a stretch-jersey material, so it is very easy and comfortable to wear, but can also be dressed up nicely. 

Don't Love: The price was steep for a rather plain dress. I could find something similar at Target for less money, but there's a reason I ended up purchasing it anyway. More on that later. 

5. Dear John Finnegan Roll Cuff Chino Short

Love: The navy/white pinstripe! I also loved the length…not too long, not too short. They are very comfortable and will help me look pulled together in the hot summer months. Since I won't be 7 months pregnant on bed rest this summer, I will have actually wear clothes instead of a tank top and underwear. Damn.

Don't Love: Really, nothing! At first, I was annoyed that I received shorts because I don't enjoy showing my legs off, but they were very flattering and a great pick for me. 

Now that you've seen the clothes, you might actually want to know the cost of this box. The total price of all the items before any discounts was $252. I know, I KNOW. That averages to around $50 per piece (some were less like the scarf, others were more like the dress). If that seems too salty for your budget, I am with you, because it was for mine, too.

HOWever, there were some discounts to apply, which helped the cause. First, I had $75 of credit thanks to you sweet people who have signed up using my referral link. Thank you! However, that is not a perk exclusive to me. You can get $25 credit when a person uses your referral link (Stitch Fix gives you one when you get your first fix) to sign up AND schedule a fix. You don't get the credit until the person's set actually ships.

So, if you would like to sign up, you can use my link (wink wink), and then Stitch Fix will give you your own link once you schedule your fix. THEN, share that link with your mom who will surely want to sign up, your sister, your best friend, your cousin, your aunt, etc, and basically FORCE them to schedule fixes, too! That right there is $100 in credit! You can also share your link on Facebook to help your cause. It's worth a shot, right?

My box was $252, then my $75 credit was applied, and then because I was keeping all 5 items, an additional 25% was taken off ($58), which made my box $119. This averages between $20-$25 per piece, which is very affordable in my book! I know that I have paid more than that for a shirt or dress at Target.

I mentioned earlier that I considered not buying the blue dress because it was pretty pricey for what it was ($74). Had I not kept the blue dress, I would have not gotten the 25% off discount for buying all 5 items, and my total would have been $104. So, for $15 more, I could get the blue maxi dress.

As you can tell, I am a huge fan of Stitch Fix, and I think busy women of all kinds will find something enjoyable about the experience! Do you know they now offer maternity and petite sizes? It almost makes me want to get pregnant again...

Give it a whirl! Use my referral link, which gets me $25 credit! My next fix comes in June. I'm anxious to see what they will send me for Summer!

Oh, and if you want to know where to snag my awesome white, plastic hanger… it's Target.
