Stitch Fix Tips for Your Best Fix Ever!

Hi friends! Happy humpday! Hope that you’re enjoying the week. Last night I made some mediterranean chicken for dinner (from the bonus preorder ebook!) and we enjoyed a family walk. Today I’ve got some Stitch Fix tips to help you get your best fix yet!

When we returned from our Vegas adventures, we had some packages waiting for us. Even though this was my 50th fix (!), seeing the Stitch Fix brand on one of the boxes still made my heart flutter. I’ve been getting them for three years now, and it still feels like Christmas each time. This is magnified with little ones in the house. There’s no way I’m toting both of the noodles to the mall to try on clothes. If we head to the mall, we’re on a mission.

Since I usually sort through the goodies and send back what I don’t need fairly quickly, I’ve been mostly posting the “hits” and whatever I’ve been keeping.

latest Stitch Fix

This time, I’m posting the whole box, including what I’m thinking of sending back. (If you’re curious to learn more about how Stitch Fix works, check out my first post ever here. So much has changed since then!) Plus, I’ve got some Stitch Fix tips at the bottom so you can get a great fix too!

Skies Are Blue Isley Crochet Detail Top (similar herehere and here)

Red top Stitch Fix keeper

(Please to ignore my post-baby bald spot.)

When I removed this from the box, I KNEW it was a keeper. I love everything about this shirt: the bold color, the unique detail, and the fact that I can wear it all summer with jean shorts. Done.

THML Chana Dress (similar styles by the same brand herehere and here <— obsessed with that last one!)

Navy dress Stitch Fix Keeper

I wasn’t sure about this one. Lately with my Stitch Fix boxes, if I’m on the fence about something, I’ll just send it back. These are usually the pieces I don’t end up wearing enough to justify taking up precious closet space. The Pilot’s half of the closet keeps getting smaller and smaller. 😉 I liked the detail on the neckline and hem, but found the dress to be pretty shapeless and kind of blah.

Papermoon Paola Embroidered Neckline Top

+ my best derp face

Stitch Fix Fail

I think I would have liked this top more in another color. I have so many blue tank tops, and this one didn’t have a “wow” or “I want to wear that every day” factor. Sending back.

Pixley Alison Swing Dress (very similar here and here)

Navy Stitch Fix dress

(with Prada sneaks from MyHabit)

Another keeper! I love neutral casual dresses that I can wear with sandals or sneakers. I can tell I’ll wear this one a lot this summer.

Renee C Galia Cami Top (similar here)

I wasn’t sure about this one, but ended up keeping it. I thought it would be cute with my white jeans, jean shorts, or a with a skirt and wedges for going out.

Stitch Fix Tips to get your best fix yet!

Utilize Pinterest

Be very specific with what you’re looking for. If you have a Pinterest style board, be sure to link to it, and include links to specific items you’re coveting. The red embroidered top above is on my style board, so I was so excited to see it in my fix!

Give Feedback

If you don’t like something, be sure to indicate what you didn’t love about it. They really do read your feedback and take it to heart when designing your fix.

Give it a Chance

Give your stylist a couple of tries to get to know you! If you find that you aren’t meshing, ask for someone else to style your fix. I’m convinced that my stylist Alexandra and I are BFFs… even though she doesn’t know it. #creeper

    I love the things you kept! I feel the same way about that Chana dress — such a cute neckline, but it’s shapeless. Love the Pixley dress you kept. I just got these which I think would look really cute with that dress : )

    Happy Wednesday! PS. I finallllly started my blog and have it up and running. You are such an inspiration to me. I’ve been following for years and am just a huge fan. Check out the blog friends page on my site : )

    If I lose weight while I’m on SF, can I update my sizes and such as I go along? I’m SOOOO tempted to give it a try, but I don’t want to end up getting this that are too big IF I continue to lose weight.

    • Fitnessista on March 16, 2016 at 10:46 pm

      u totally can!

  5. Megan @ Skinny Fitalicious on March 16, 2016 at 7:55 am

    I love both dresses and the shirt you were on the fence about too! I’ve actually not done much shopping in a year. On a student budget here! Oh how I can’t wait to shop again!

    • Fitnessista on March 16, 2016 at 10:45 pm

      thank you, friend! hope you’re having a great week

  6. Hillary on March 16, 2016 at 9:19 am

    Love the coral top, very pretty!

    • Fitnessista on March 16, 2016 at 10:45 pm

      thank you!

  7. Kristin on March 16, 2016 at 9:48 am

    I’ve thought about trying SF, but I live in workouts clothes 80 percent of the time and worried that I won’t benefit from the service. Do they send workout/fitness clothes if you indicate that’s your style?

    • Fitnessista on March 16, 2016 at 10:45 pm

      they don’t offer those, but you can request more casual options!

  8. India on March 16, 2016 at 10:14 am

    Love the two that you kept! I tried SF once and it wasn’t for me, but I’m glad you’ve had so much success with it.

    • Fitnessista on March 16, 2016 at 10:45 pm

      thank you! hope you’re having a great week

  9. Jess on March 16, 2016 at 10:59 am

    I love the items you kept! I can see why it is so exciting to receive a box! How fun!

    • Fitnessista on March 16, 2016 at 10:45 pm

      it’s so much fun! especially since trying on clothes is a treat right now haha

  10. Amy S on March 16, 2016 at 11:05 am

    The items you kept look great! I am a fan of Stitch Fix, too…and I love reading Stitch Fix reviews 🙂 I got my last fix a week ago and kept an adorable coral dress that’ll be perfect for spring and summer!

    • Fitnessista on March 16, 2016 at 10:45 pm

      thank you! i love reading them too! what coral dress did you get? i want to google it haha

      • Amy S on March 17, 2016 at 1:11 pm

        Sure! It’s the London Times Evaline dress 🙂

  11. Tracy on March 16, 2016 at 11:26 am

    50? Wow! Do you think you’ve kept more or sent back more over the 3 years?

    • Fitnessista on March 16, 2016 at 10:44 pm

      that’s tough to say! i’ve sent back entire boxes quite a few times (in the earlier days) but also have had fixes where i kept everything

  12. Jessica on March 16, 2016 at 11:50 am

    I’m glad that I’m not the only one with a bald spot! My daughter was born a few weeks before yours and I’m bald in the same place!

    • Fitnessista on March 16, 2016 at 10:43 pm
