I was literally SO excited when I received my first Stitch Fix in the mail. I have been debating doing a clothing service for a couple of months now, so when I pulled the trigger and did it, I was so eager to see what my stylist would send me.
I literally ran up my driveway when I knew that my box was waiting at the door. I tore it open and looked at all the beautiful clothes. I wasn't expecting to like everything, but I liked almost everything. My stylist Lindsay did such a good job, and after only one go around! The ooooonly problem that I had was with fit with a couple of things. Which is totally understandable.
Here's a quick run down on how stitch fix works:
1. Start by heading to Stitchfix.com and entering your style profile. This helps your stylist get to know you as well as mine did! You answer questions about your sizing, pricing preferences, what you are looking for and what you are not looking for. Also make sure to keep up your Pinterest board so your stylist can check out what you like!
2. Order your fix! When you order each fix, you get charged a $20 styling fee. But, if you purchase an item, and you probably will because you will like the stuff, that $20 will be credited towards your purchase. In your fix you can receive clothing, jewelry and accessories, which your stylist will select based on your style profile. You have the choice to schedule fixes when you choose... you aren't obligated to buy one every month. This is one of the main reasons I personally chose Stitch Fix.
3. Once you have your fix, and have tried it on (and probably taken photos), you need to decide what you are going to keep, and what you are going to send back. You have three business days to decide, before you then go online, fill out your follow up survey, and then send anything back that you don't want in a postage paid bag.
So I bet you want to see what I got!
Pixley Tammi Keyhole Dress - Returned
I loved this dress, but it was just too big. Especially on top. I love the floral print and the keyhole detail, which is also on the back. I could definitely bring this into fall with a cardigan here in Norfolk. If it was a smaller size and fit I would have kept this without hesitation.
41Hawthorn Queensland Dolman Jersey Top - Kept
Renee C Gabe Maxi Skirt - Returned
My stylist recommended these as an outfit. I love the dolman top, and can see myself wearing this a lot as a basic. It is incredibly comfortable and soft, and will look great paired with some skinny jeans. The maxi skirt is cute, but I have something similar in my closet already.
Papermoon Shepherd Crochet Dress - Returned
This dress was awesome, but it didn't flatter me very well. I am on the lookout for some ivory and white dresses to wear for wedding events this year, and thought this might be a contender, but once I saw myself in these photos it sealed the deal for me. It's not right for me. Back it goes.
41 Hawthorn Montgomery Cross Front Knit Top - Returned
It's funny, as soon as I saw this, I told Dave that it looks like something my mom would wear. Don't get me wrong, my mom is a stylish lady. I wasn't a fan of the sleeveless. But I like the color a lot. Not a fan.
So what do you think? Do you think I made the right decision? Should I request the floral dress in a smaller size? What about the crochet dress? I have so many thoughts! Have you ever tried Stitch Fix?
