My First Stitch FIx

I absolutely love the idea of Stitch Fix! Getting new clothes is so great, but the actual act of shopping isn't all that fun for me. I get frustrated so easy and dressing rooms are the worst. Stitch Fix is an online personal shopping service. When you sign up you fill out an style profile that includes your size, tastes and preferences. They ask you questions like how often you wear dresses or if you prefer gold or silver jewelry. Plus you can link your Pinterest boards for your stylist to look at! They send you 5 pieces to try on, and if you like them you can buy them. Buy all 5 for 25% off. 

My stylist is Jamie, and in her note to me I found out she has a pug too! While she couldn't find what I had requested, she did a great job analyzing my style. I like that each piece comes with a styling card with suggestions on how to pair each item. 

In my first fix I received 2 dresses, a top, a skirt and a pair of earrings. Let's break it down!



Zad Val Chandelier Earring - $28


Whoa, close up! These earrings are super pretty and not heavy at all like I thought they would be. I love gold, and I think these would go with a ton of things. I think that the price is a little high for a pair of earrings, so probably not going to keep these.

London Times Nancee Dress - $98



Black is so hard to photograph, but I gave you guys a close up so you could see the material better. Oh and nosey Delly makes an appearance too. I have to say I really like this dress! Who doesn't need a go-to black dress? This is long enough to wear to work but also nice enough to wear to a party. You can't go wrong with a fit and flare. 

41Hawthorn McAdams Beaded Neckline Blouse & Renee C Melisa Printed Skirt - $48 & $58


I LOVE this outfit- on the hanger. In my style profile I indicated that I wear a lot of skirts, so I was happy to get one. The colors here are great, the length is awesome and I love the idea. But, I just can't do pencil skirts anymore. Squat probs! My butt is just too big for this. I'd have to go 3 sizes up to get this skirt to look right, and then of course it would be way too big in the waist. The top is iffy for me though. I love the color and it's a great quality. I think it's a bit too baggy untucked, so I have to do some thinking about how I would style it without this skirt. 

41Hawthorn Melony Shirt Dress - $78


Another dress that doesn't photograph well. This dress is beautiful in person, but it looks terrible on me. I love the color and the material. One problem is that the lining is really tight on my butt, but loose everywhere else. I don't think this dress lays in the right spots for my body. Maybe a belt would look better but the tie is attached so I didn't try it. Honestly I just feel like this dress adds like 20 pounds. Plus it's a high low dress which isn't my fav. 

Overall: 
Stitch Fix asks for feedback on each item and I think over time you could really end up with a great wardrobe. The more feedback means better shipments! One thing you can also customize is your budget. I don't mind paying a bit more for excellent quality pieces that I really like. I do think it's funny my favorite piece of this box was the most expensive, but that's pretty typical of me! 

Another great thing is that this isn't a normal subscription service. You can select exactly how often you want these boxes, even if you only want to do it one time. There is a $20 styling fee, but it goes toward anything you buy. 

I'm still deciding on what to keep and what to send back, so your feedback would be awesome! If anything I will keep the black dress and the orange top. I feel so conflicted because I am trying to get rid of clothes that I don't absolutely love, so buying more feels wrong!

  1. Yay for trying out Stitch Fix!! I have done 15 fixes and love the whole process. I don't usually keep much because it can be a little pricey, but I love getting the package every month and trying on new things. :) I got that orange shirt last year, and though I think it's gorgeous, I didn't keep it because I was scared the beading would come off too easily. It looks so good on you though!

  2. OMG! That picture of Delly is everything!! Haha. I know I KNOW, I'm supposed to be looking at the clothes. I can't get into this because I don't really think of their clothes fit my style. I mean, they don't sell Marvel shirts right? Hahahaha. Anyhoo, you look cute though. And look at Erica up there commenting! She's a stitch fix addict. She should be a spokesperson for them haha.

    1. She is my favorite part of this post! Pugs are so involved in everything you're doing.
      I feel conflicted about my style too. I love a great superhero t-shirt, but sometimes I can be really girly!
