Before I get started, let me explain to you about what Stitch Fix is and how it works.
Stitch Fix is a personal shopping/styling service. You fill out a personal style profile, answer some questions, and then for $20.00 a personal stylist picks 5 items for each fix and sends them to the comfort of your home. The stylist looks at your style preferences, size, and any recommendations into consideration. You can make recommendations for special events, such as, a wedding, vacation, etc. on upcoming fixes. With each fix, they send you styling guides to help you pair the items sent up with things that you might already have. After you try on the items that they sent, you log into your account and decide whether or not you are going to keep them or send them back at check out. If you decide to keep anything, the $20 styling fee will be credited towards your purchase. If you choose to keep all of the items, a 25% discount will be applied to your purchase. Any items that you decide not to keep, just simply place them into the prepaid envelope and mail out. It's that simple!
I really look forward to getting my Stitch Fix. I'm not much of a shopper. Majority of the times when I go into a store, I see something and would never even try it on. This program makes me try on things that I would just skip right over in the stores. With my first fix, I bought a beautiful statement necklace and a adorable dress. With that fix, I was also sent a pair of cobalt blue pants that I adored, but didn't want to spend that much money on, and two tops that I had to part with. One, the area around the armpits was really tight and the other one was to short. Enough about my last fix, let's see what was in my box this fix.
I opened my box and took out the carefully wrapped items. This is what was in my box.
I see some potential items. One item, I wasn't very fond of the pattern just looking at the stack. I then took out the sheet with the styling cards and tore them apart. I do this with each fix and try and pair them up with things that I have in my closet. Here is the personalized note from my stylist.
Looking at the styling cards, I saw a few things that I could pair together. Remember, I'm just starting out so I don't have to much in my wardrobe right now. Also, I have been working very hard on losing weight. It is a goal of mine. So far, I have lost 15 pounds. I asked for items that are loose fitting and items that I can wear in the extreme South Florida heat. As I began unpacking the items and hanging them up to take pictures for you all, I noticed that my stylist really didn't pay to much attention this time to my request. Here are the items I got this fix.
First up was the Mixed Dot Blouse. When I first picked it up, I liked that the material was sheer which means that it will be fine with the South Florida weather.
The styling card suggested that I pair it with a light pair of denim jeans or a navy pencil skirt. I had neither so I choose a dark pair of jeans.
I'm not 100% sold on this shirt. It looks a lot better on the hanger than it does on me. I'm not to sure about the dots.
My next fix was the Print Blouse. This is the one item in the fix that I did not like from the start. It reminded me of something I would have seen in my Grandma's house.
Let me tell you that my gut must have been telling me something because this shirt didn't even fit over my chest. So it was definitely out.
So onto the next item, let me tell you I absolutely loved this next shirt when I saw it packaged up and when I saw the styling card. I tried on the Dash Button-Front Chambray Shirt. This shirt looks just like a denim shirt, however it was super soft and very light weight. Well, I quickly became very disappointed as I put it on the hanger to take a picture. It was completely the wrong size. The tag on the sleeve said the correct size, however, the actual tag on the shirt was 2 sizes smaller. So, I knew I wouldn't be trying this one on and would be sending it back.
The final 2 items I tried on together. I tried on a pair of black polka dot pants and teal knit top. The pants were the same pants as the pants in my first fix except that they were a different color. I like the fit of them, but am not a huge fan of the polka dots. (Secretly, I was wishing that it was the original pants from the first fix.) The teal shirt surprised me. It was long sleeve. I didn't want long sleeve and I specifically asked for items that I could wear in the Florida heat.
Well, I was surprised because it you could actually roll up the sleeves to make them shorter.
What do you think about my fix? I was a little disappointed by some of the items I got in this fix, but will be letting them know. I'm going to keep the teal shirt, but send all the others back. I liked the pants, but really wasn't a fan of the polka dots. I hope you liked finding out about Stitch Fix as much as I liked sharing it with you.
