{first stitch fix review}



Last week I received my first "fix" from Stitch Fix and I'm so excited to share a review with you today.

I'm very happy with the pieces my stylist, Darien, chose for me the first time around.

If you aren't familiar with Stitch Fix, it is a mail-order styling service. You complete a personal style profile, and a stylist is assigned to you to pick out clothing and accessories that they think will fit your style. It is $20 to schedule a fix, and then that fee goes toward anything you keep from the box. You can keep anything, everything or nothing!

The only negative to this experience was the fact that I came down with strep throat on the day my fix arrived {I KNOW!!}, so I wasn't able to take photos wearing all of the pieces like I had hoped to. They have to be mailed back within three days. So my apologies for the mish-mash of pics.

When I opened the box I found this great styling card, which shows each piece in the fix, and two ways to style it. The turqoise tank immediately caught my eye. I knew right away it was a keeper!
But first I'm going to start by sharing the pieces I didn't keep. Because I was so sick I didn't try to take photos of them on...nobody wants to see that! ;)

1. Sansa Dotted Chevron Print 3/4 sleeve dress - $38
This dress was super cute, but unfortunately too tight on me. It is a large but felt more like junior sizing. I'm kind of glad it was too tight because I would have had a hard time sending it back!

2. Krissa Mixed Print Henley Blouse - $44
I loved the fit and feel of this top, but the color and pattern weren't quite me.

3. Arley Tortoise Jewel Pendant - $38
This was the one total miss of the fix. I do love chunky jewelry, but this piece was too flashy for me, and felt poorly made...especially for that high price tag.

And now for the two pieces I love and kept!

4. Ashlie Graphic Knit Sleeveless Cardigan - $44
My stylist obviously noticed that I love my Aztec cardigans, and was nice enough to send me a piece I can wear through the warmer months.
This sweater is suuuper soft, a really sturdy knit, and a perfect mix of neutral colors. I wore it to work with khaki pants, but can't wait to pair it with jeans and sandals for a more casual look.

And my absolute favorite piece from the fix...

5. Sadie V-Neck Embroidery Detail Tank - $48

Darien, you ABSOLUTELY nailed it with this top. The color, the fit, the olive green embroidery?!

Shut.up. I could seriously wear it every day. It was the perfect light-weight top to wear to my boys' birthday party this past Saturday.

I paired it with jeans and sandals, and received so many compliments.

Overall this was a really fun experience and I can't wait to try it again. It was definitely a splurge for me though, and not something I'll do every month.

If you are interested in trying Stitch Fix, you can use this link and I'll get a nice little $25 credit toward my next fix. Isn't that nice how you can enable my shopping habit? ;)

What pieces in my fix were your favorites?

I love what you kept. I agree about the necklace - wouldn't be quite me either. Looks like you got some modestly priced items!

Love what you kept! You look gorgeous!

I hate the dress didn't work! I loved it. That necklace is hideous and looks cheap just from pics! The items seem pricey to me. I'm very cheap 😉 I do love the turquoise tank!
