I need to preface this post by telling you that I’m not in any way a fashion blogger. I love clothes. I love shoes. I love handbags and everything fashion related. But, me? I need a little direction. I don’t instantly look at things and pair them together, and I certainly don’t take enough fashion risks. When I heard about Stitch Fix I just knew it was exactly what I needed. You fill out a style profile, complete with tons of questions about your style, and size. Then, you schedule your fix and it comes straight to your door. What exactly do I mean by “fix”? It’s a box put together by a stylish (based on your profile) and it includes 5 different items.
The initial cost of the box is $20, BUT you can use that $20 as a credit if you chose to keep at least one thing from the box. The box also comes with a prepaid postage envelope to ship back the things you don’t like. So, free shipping and free returns, and you only lose the 20 bucks if you don’t like a single thing in the box. The odds are in your favor, at least mine were.
Let’s talk about my box. I snapped a few pictures to show off the items that came in my first fix. Even better? I didn’t snap my normal “selfie” with my iPhone in the closet. Hooray for better quality photos!
Item #1- Amrita Ankle Length Jean by Just Black These skinny jeans came in green and I would have NEVER chosen this color for myself, but I absolutely loved them once I slipped them on. I scanned my closet and it seems that I have several shirts to pair these jeans with, and I can even use them for different occasions. The fit was great and the price was perfect, too. At $48, I couldn’t pass on these.
Item #2- Luke Tribal Print Front Pocket Tank by Pink Martini I’ll admit, the length of this shirt is a little out of my comfort zone. I tend to gravitate towards a longer length to hide the curviness of my hips. However, I tried this on and loved it immediately. The colors are perfect, I love the cool factor that the tribal print adds, and I can easily pair it with a longer cardigan and wear it to school. It was a keeper, too!
Item #3- Pyramid Rhinestone Charm Necklace by 41Hawthorn I immediately loved the daintiness of this necklace. It is simple and sweet. At $28 it found a new home in my jewelry box.
Item #4 Delcan Crochet Inset Floral Print Top by Angie This top had a tiny bit of the high-low look, just enough to comfortably cover up the backside. I love the colors and the print. The crochet details are just perfect and I can easily wear this to work. I think it will carry me into fall nicely. I kept it, are you starting to see a trend here?
Item #5- Ana Marie V-Neck Printed Back Top by Honey Punch When I was pulling the pieces out of the box, I instantly loved this top. The front is solid navy, but the back has such a fun print. Navy is one of my favorite colors to wear, and I think this top would pair nicely with jeans and flats for a great casual look. And guess what? I kept it! Let’s also talk about the look on my face, clearly I’m not amused about having my picture taken a million times. Props to my favorite fashion bloggers. I don’t know how you do it. Maybe next time I’ll give you something other than the hand on my hip. Any I might even iron those pink shorts. Probably not. A huge thanks to that patient husband of mine for suffering through all of these outfit changes.
If you haven’t figured out the obvious, I kept everything in my box. I was pleasantly surprised that everything fit, and I loved all of the pieces that were included. The best part? Stitch Fix gives you 25% off your entire order, if you keep all five pieces. This fix came at a perfect time because I had adjusted the budget to include a few new things for back to school, so it wasn’t a big deal to keep everything. Thank goodness, because I’m not sure I could have parted with these items.
