After trying Stitch Fix earlier this year, I decided to order my second fix and see if my stylist could help me find something pageant interview appropriate.
How Stitch Fix Works
- Fill out a style profile and share your likes and dislikes with your stylist. I recommend putting together a Pinterest board.
- Schedule your box. They can be sent to you automatically or you can schedule a box one at a time.
- Pay $20 when your box is styled.
- Get excited while you wait for your box.
- Open your box and try on everything your stylist sends you.
- Decide what to keep and what to send back. (You have 3 days to do this.)
- Share your thoughts at check out so your stylist has a better idea of what to send you next time.
- Send back any pieces you don’t want. (Shipping is free!)

Inside Fix #2
Dress #1 – Pixley Millie Textured Kit Dress -$68
I’m not wild about gray, and the style isn’t flattering to my figure, so this is a pass for me. Verdict: Sent back.
Dress #2 – Pixley Meena Knit Dress – $78
I really like the style of this dress. The price is right, and the dress looks pageant interview appropriate; however, the sizing is awkward. The bodice feels two sizes too big while the hips feel a size too small. Sadly, this is a pass. Verdict: Sent back.
Dress #3 – Donna Morgan Cam Gathered Waist Dress – $118
The print is really pretty, and I like the gathered waist, but the price is more than what I want to spend. The style is a little bit too conservative for what I’m looking for, but the fit is perfect. I’d keep it if the dress was cheaper. Verdict: Sent back.
Top #1 – Daniel Rainn Albado Crew Neck Blouse – $64
This top is cute, but since I’m looking for dresses, rompers, and jumpsuits, I didn’t even consider keeping it. Verdict: Sent back.
Top #2 – 41Hawthorn Lyone Crew Neck Blouse – $58
This top is my favorite of the two, but since it’s not what I’m looking for, it’s a pass. Verdict: Sent back.
For my second Stitch Fix, I asked my stylist for pageant interview appropriate pieces, specifically shift dresses and jumpsuits. I wish a jumpsuit or romper had been included in the mix or at least all dresses. Since I didn’t ask for tops, I’m confused why I was sent two unless it’s because in my first fix I had asked for all tops.
This is only my second fix, and from all the reviews I’ve read, it takes some trial and error in order to get consistently good fixes. I, also, had a different stylist this time around, although I don’t know how much that matters unless you’ve been with the same stylist for several fixes.
This box has taught me that shopping for such a specific look is probably not the best use of this styling service. I think Stitch Fix is better for general wardrobe updates, like if you are looking to update your wardrobe for the new season or are looking for vacation clothes.
Happily, I had a special offer for this fix and didn’t have to pay the styling fee. While the $20 styling fee goes towards your purchase, you lose the fee if you don’t keep anything from your box. The retail cost of this box is $386.00, but had I kept all five pieces I would have received a 25% discount bringing the cost of the box down to $289.50.
If you want to try Stitch Fix, I’d love it if you used my referral link! When you refer a friend, you receive a $25 credit, so it definitely pays to share the love.
