Are you Stitch Fixing yet?
Shelly loved her first box so much, I decided that I needed to sign up. If you’re unfamiliar, Stitch Fix is basically a service where you fill out a detailed “Style Profile” that gives them an idea of your day to day activities, your size, and your personal style. Then a stylist puts together FIVE items and pops them in the mail. These items can be tops, pants, skirts, dresses, accessories…you name it!!
They also send a cute card attached to each item that shows how to style it for day or night. That is great for someone like me who is a little challenged in that area!!
What I really love is that Stitch Fix makes it super easy to mail back what you don’t want — they include an addressed, prepaid envelope. Just stick what you don’t want to keep in it and send it on it’s way (this is great for someone like me who is Post Office challenged…).
Well. I got my first box and I LOVE it!! So so fun to open it up and see what they picked out for you.
One thing Shelly and I have noticed is that the items they send are usually things we would not have picked out ourselves…and don’t always look super exciting on the hanger. But trying them on makes a HUGE difference — it all looks so cute and I love it.
With that in mind, I decided to post photos of me actually WEARING the items. I enlisted my 8 year old Jon David (actually my “blog” hired him for 5 bucks) and had him snap away!! Please don’t be offended by my pasty white legs (ain’t nobody got time for skin cancer) or still existant baby belly. I’ll burn it off eventually!!
First up was a sheer tank with a tie front. Here they have it paired with jeans and a denim coat, or a skirt and heels.
I love tanks like this because it can go from Summer to Fall very easily!!
The tank fit good — a little fitted without being snug. I like that it’s casual enough for running errands, but I can dress sit up for church. The collar makes it a little cute and different.
I decided to keep it.
Next up was this 3/4 sleeve jacket.
I really wanted to love the jacket. The way they have it styled on the card makes it look so classy and timeless…and it had the cutest leopard print lining.
I ended up decided that no matter how I style it, it’s a little too old looking for me.
I’m sending it back.
Next was this wrap dress. I don’t own any wrap dresses, and this didn’t look super flattering or cute when I pulled it out of the box. But I have heard good things about how comfortable and flattering they are, so I was excited to try it out!!
This is another dress that looks like it could go easily from day to night.
I really liked it. Super duper comfortable, and I felt like the cut and print did a good job of camouflaging my middle.
Next was this mint lace 3/4 sleeve top. Again — it isn’t something I would normally choose, but it looked comfortable, and was a cute color.
I thought it fit fine, and would be great for late Summer/early Fall and Spring.
Last up was this necklace, which I absolutely LOVE. No one ever looks fat in a necklace!! Yay necklaces!!
Here’s the damage. Not cheap, but not bad either. I feel like this is about normal for several good quality clothing items.
What I do like is that you have 3 days to decide before you are charged…and can send back whatever you want, or cancel for that month if your budget is tight and you don’t want to be tempted.
So far, I am LOVING Stitch Fix and am excited to see what I get next month!!
