Stitch Fix #1

*Note: This is not a sponsored post. Stitch Fix gave me no compensation or credit. Also, I know some of the photos are upside down. Sorry! I can’t figure out how to flip them. 

 

So after going to Italy with my sister, and borrowing a couple of tops from her, I decided to bite the bullet and give Stitch Fix a try. I would like to describe my style as a mix of rocker, hippie/boho, and country, but that wouldn’t be 100% accurate. Probably not even 40% accurate.

So in an attempt to expand my wardrobe and incorporate new things, I received my first Stitch Fix box. Now, I’m sure everyone under the sun knows what the hell Stitch Fix is, but quickly:

  1. You go on to stitchfix.com and fill out your style profile.
  2. A stylist picks out 5 pieces they think you would like and sends them to you for a $20 styling fee.
  3. You get your pieces in the mail and have 3 business days to decided what you’re keeping and what you’re planning on sending back.
  4. Your $20 styling fee gets credited towards anything you keep. There is also an additional discount if you keep all 5 pieces. If you chose to send everything back, you lose your $20 fee.
  5. Check out on stitchfix.com, leaving feedback about what you liked and didn’t like on each piece and how you felt overall about your shipment. Put anything you are sending back in the pre-paid envelope that comes with your fix and put it out for the mail person. The end!

So when I got my first fix I was pretty excited to see what they picked out for me. I posted them below, including a photo and what I kept and why and what I sent back and why.

 

41Hawthorn Breyson Pleated Tab-Sleeve Blouse $58.00-sent back

This shirt just wasn’t my style. It would have been ok for work, but the upper sleeves were just a bit too tight, and I could see myself constantly reaching past it for something else in my closet.

Pixley Curran Split Neck Blouse $44-kept it

Actually, my mom kept this out of my fix. I did like it, but it was a bit short on me, and we both thought it would look better on my mom than myself. So she took this one home!

Market & Spruce Evella Boatneck Top $64-sent back

I wanted to like piece so much. But it wasn’t meant to be. I thought the price was a little steep on this, and the seams where the “button-down” material met the sweater material had zero give to it, which made it uncomfortable. 

Le Lis Grenaa Knit Blazer $58-kept it

I was unsure of this jacket until I put it on. And then I loved it!  It looked like it would hang weird based on the knit material but it actually fits really well. I like that you could dress it up with a really nice top and pants to look good for work or wear it with a casual shirt and jeans. It seems like a very versatile piece.

Liverpool Georgia 4-Way Stretch Bootcut Jeans $88-kept it

These jeans fit really nice. They are a bit long, but I do prefer my pants to be on the long side, since I’m a bit taller than average and my legs are fairly long. I also liked that I thought they made my butt look pretty good. Another plus is that they don’t have a ton of decorative stitching and zero “bling” to them, making them a good pair of jeans to wear to a casual dressy function with a pair of heels. 

All in all, I was pretty happy with my first Stitch Fix. It was fun to see what someone else would pick out for me based on a series of questions I answered. I’m looking forward to getting more Stitch Fixes in the future!
