Hey, y’all! I’m so excited to share my first fix with you! By now, I’m sure most of you have heard of Stitch Fix. If you haven’t: What rock have you been hiding under? Anyways, after wanting to try it out for more than a year now, I randomly decided a week ago to take the plunge (after reading a few reviews from some fellow bloggers). So how does it work? Well, first you sign up. Once you’ve signed up you’ll be prompted to answer a few questions about your style, sizes you wear, etc. You can even link a Pinterest board for your stylist to get a better idea of your personal style! Then, write a note to your stylist about the kind of things you’re looking for in particular and/or any events you have coming up and schedule your fix! It really is that easy! You’ll get charged a $20 styling fee once your box is put together but want to know the best part? That $20 goes towards whatever you decide to purchase from the box! How fantastic!
One week after signing up (give or take a few days) my perfectly packaged box arrived and I dove right in. (Warning: This post is going to be selfie heavy). Here’s my first Stitch Fix review, complete with what I thought about the pieces, what I kept, and why I’m going to continue with the service.
Market & Spruce – Lana Lace Detail V-Neck Blouse
The second I pulled this top out of the box, I was praying it would look as good on as it did in my hands. The fabric is soft and flowy, making it perfect for a date night. Justin and I plan on making a tradition out of “Date-Night-In” on Saturdays, now that he has extended privileges (thank god for the bump from a 5 mile radius to a 75 mile radius). After styling the top with both jeans and the pencil skirt, ensuring I can wear it to work, I put it in the “keep” pile. It is actually the only item I ended up keeping from this fix and I can’t wait to wear it this coming Saturday!
This top was extremely hard for me to say no to, however, after trying it on three different ways (with the skirt belted and not belted) I decided the fit was just a little too boxy for my petite frame. I discovered through this fix that Mediums are actually too big for me now which is both a blessing and a curse because I’m not convinced a Small would fit any better. The details of this top were really subtle, but I definitely enjoyed the playful hem.
Another oh-so-perfect for Date Night tank. I adored this but the Medium was much too big for me to justify the purchase. I’ve been trying to purge my closet of ill fitting pieces and I’ve come too far to go back now! I hope my next fix has something similar to this tank because it was the perfect combination of preppy and feminine and I could see it transitioning easily from fall to winter and back to spring and summer. Also, throw on a blazer and this puppy is great for work! As a young professional, it’s imperative that my closet be stocked with pieces that can pull double duty when it comes to work and play.
Bancroft – Kaitland Spade Charm Long Necklace
41Hawthorn – Queensland Dolman Jersey Top
These were the final two pieces of my fix, meant to be worn together for Army football games (because sometimes jeans and a tshirt doesn’t cut it). I wasn’t crazy about the necklace, I’m much more of a statement necklace kind of girl and I definitely think there were better options out there for what I wanted. The shirt was SO comfy. The jersey material is to DIE for and I wish I had all the tshirts in the world made out of this material. I couldn’t really come to a decision on whether or not the Dolman top flattered my figure and that’s what ultimately helped me send it back. Hopefully more of this material will come my way (and I’ll be able to find something cute for football games).
Why Should I Try It?
Just a few more reasons y’all should try Stitch Fix: 1) The $20 you put down for the styling fee goes towards whatever you purchase from the fix, 2) You get your very own referral link and you get $25 every time one of your friends uses the link to sign up, and 3) Stitch Fix is so tailorable! You can choose how often you get your fix, you can write notes to your stylist explaining what kind of things your looking for (ex: if you have a wedding to go to and are looking for a dress for that), and you can set your price points. Stitch Fix is really tailored toward you!
Overall, I was extremely pleased with this first fix. I can’t wait to get the next one! It’s so nice to just be able to say to someone: “Hey, I’m really looking for something like this” and have them find it for you. Talk about convenient! You can expect another Stitch Fix review when my next fix comes (I changed the frequency from monthly to every 2-3 weeks)!
Are you going to sign up for your very own fix? Or if you already use Stitch Fix, how has your experience been so far? I wanna know! Thanks for stopping by, y’all!
