I LOVE Stitch Fix

Best. Mail. Ever.

(And yes, this is an entire post without food!)

My Stitch Fix came!!

Stitch Fix is, in my opinion, quite possibly the coolest thing ever. It’s basically a personal stylist and a personal shopper all in one!

You sign up online and fill out a personal profile on your style. You answer questions like how often do you wear dress clothes, what do you like to show/keep covered, etc. You also give your reaction to a few dozen outfits.

Then you schedule your “fix”. You pay $20 the day it ships. BUT you can then use that $20 as credit towards anything you decide to purchase in your box!

So what did I get in my first fix?

First, a SUPER soft angora-blend sweater

with really sweet detailing. The sweater was really well-made and felt amazing, but the large flower detail is a little too feminine for me.

I knew I’d never wear it. So my first item was a no.

The second item was this really cute lacey pull-over top

I went back and forth on this top. The fit was great and I could see wearing it with jeans or shorts in the summer. BUT I just didn’t LOVE it. And I don’t buy any clothing that I don’t love. So my second item was also a no.

My third item was a silky chevron patterned tank top in bold colors.

I loved the detailing on the back.

It sort of criss crossed and opened, but ultimately the fit was just too big. The billowy fit plus the big pattern weren’t flattering on 5 foot 4 frame. So this was also a no.

My fourth item was my absolute favorite. I knew it as soon as I saw the color. LOVE!!

And look at the detailing on the sleeve!

LOVE it!

I can wear it tucked out or tucked in – it’s a great length and cut. And it just looks and feels like a quality piece of clothing.

Much nicer than my Target wardrobe!

My last item was amazing. I instantly fell in love.

This brass ring was TOTALLY me. I loved the curved detail and the color. AND it’s handmade in the USA! But at $38 I couldn’t justify the price. I have a ton of great Fair Trade cocktail rings from work that I rarely wear. SO….it was a no.

As much I went back and forth – I talked myself in and out of this ring a billion times. But no. Or maybe…NO! Yes! No!

Bah! I have to decide by this afternoon.

So those were my five items. A cool feature of the Stitch Fix experience is that every item has a neat card with it:

giving you some wearable ideas. Love!

AND it’s super easy to return what you don’t want to purchase! They give you a pre-paid mailer to slip in what you don’t want within three days!

The verdict: I LOVE Stitch Fix and I will absolutely do it again! It was so much fun to receive a box full of surprises and the quality of the clothing was top notch!

I did not receive anything to write this post, I literally just saw Stitch Fix on another blog and signed up!

If you’re interested check it out! Or email me and I can send you a referral link!

Happy Friday friends!
