I just got my first Stitch Fix which is a personal styling service. They have an online portal where you tell them your style, size, and budget, and one of their stylists puts together a box of 5 items that are specially picked for you! They charge you a $20 styling fee which is refunded to you in the form of a product discount if you make a purchase. You can also get a 25% discount if you buy all 5 items. If you happen to dislike anything, or the fit is wrong, send it back within 3 days in a free prepaid envelope and you will not be charged for it.
At first, I was a little nervous because I'm usually really particular about the fit and style of my clothes, but I must confess...I purchased everything!
I was so excited to come home from school today. My husband texted me a picture while I was at school to show me my fix arrived. As soon as I walked in the door, I dug right in. When I opened the box, there was an envelope that contained styling cards that give me ideas of how I could wear each item. For this fix, I asked my stylist to give me loose fitting blouses that I could either wear with leggings or under a cardigan. I didn't get anything long enough for me to feel comfortable wearing it with leggings, but it didn't matter after I tried it all on. Scroll on down to see everything I got! The lighting in my house was horrible at this time of day, so the color of the tops don't look great when I'm modeling it, but I was able to get some good pictures of them on a hanger so you can see what they really look like. :)
My first item was the McKenna Printed Button-Up Tank. You can see the color is much better on the hanger, but I wanted to show you how it actually fits me. I actually really like this, although my husband and mom both said it was their least favorite. I really like that the fabric is thick and it would look nice as I wear it teaching in the warm months paired with capris, pants, or jeans on casual days.
The next item is this Roxanna Chevron Open Knit Cardigan. I'm obsessed with chevron, so I was excited to see this! What I really like about this is that the color is pink and white. When I typically buy cardigans, they are gray, black, or white. It's probably not the color that I would pick out on my own, but that's what I like most about it.
I love the pattern and color of this Camillia Floral Print Sleeveless Blouse. It's so light and airy and I can imagine myself staying cool while I'm in my 2nd floor non-airconditioned classroom. It could also be something I could wear in the fall with a cardigan on top.
The last item in my box is this Judson Silk Layered Split Back Sweater. When I took it out of the box, I instantly loved how soft it felt, but wasn't sure how it would look on me as it doesn't have much shape to it. After I put it on, it instantly became my favorite piece, even if it was definitely way more expensive than the rest of the items in my box. I told my stylist that I have really long arms and these sleeves are actually the perfect length for me. It's just so soft and the split back is something that one wouldn't expect to see.
Overall, I'm extremely happy with my first Stitch Fix! I really recommend this service for anyone who either doesn't have time to shop, doesn't like to go shopping, or is just looking for something new that you wouldn't try on your own. What is also great about it is that you can try on all the clothes from the comfort of your own home and you can get to see what it looks like with the rest of your wardrobe and accessories. I would say that the quality of the clothes is what you might get at a Macy's or Dillards.
