I first heard about it from Lauren at Traded Dreams. Since I'm losing weight, I'm starting to experiment with some different styles of clothing and I thought this would be a fun way to try things that I might not ordinarily grab off the rack at the store.
You head to the Stitch Fix website and fill out a style profile to sign up. There is a $20 "Styling Fee" up front, but that is credited towards your purchase. Once you schedule your first fix, you
My first "fix" arrived yesterday, and I was positively giddy with excitement!
Your "Fix" arrives in a pretty box, all wrapped in tissue paper, with a card.
Each item comes with a card attached that shows some different ways to wear it. I love this idea!
Item #1 - a blue wrap dress.
I didn't even take a picture of it. It was really low cut, which I could've solved by wearing something under it. However, it was a little shorter and swingier than I like. Plus, the material felt similar to a wrap dress I have from Target that I paid about $15 for on clearance, and this dress was $50. I was sad.
Verdict: sending it back
Item #2 - a black scarf with little stars all over it
I LOVED this. I love scarves and this one was fun and would go with a lot of things. However, it was $38 and I just can't bring myself to spend that much money on a scarf.
Verdict: sending it back
Item #3 - navy peasant blouse
I liked this. If it was on the clearance rack, I'd have bought it. It was around $50 though, and for something that I just "liked" but didn't LOVE, it didn't seem worth it.
Verdict: sending back
Item #4 - black blouse
I loved this. I really struggled with the decision for this one. I liked the cut and the fit a lot. I ended up deciding not to keep it. Why? Because I'm still losing weight and this piece wouldn't look the same in another 30 pounds. If I was at my goal weight, I'd definitely have kept this one.
Verdict: (reluctantly) sending back
Item #5: color block cardigan
When I pulled this out of the box I actually gasped and went "I LOVE IT!" I never would've picked this up in a store, but when I put it on, I knew it was a winner! I love that it has the brown tone that will go with both brown and black. Plus, the edges are sparkly thread (hard to see in the picture)! The cardi is $68. That's pretty pricey by my standards, but I love it. Plus, because it's a boxier shape, as I lose more weight it will still fit but be more "boyfriend" style.
Verdict: keeping and wearing immediately!
Overall, I LOVED my first fix! It was so fun to try on different things. Plus, I didn't have to leave my house and I had all of my other clothes there. Don't you hate it when you're in a store trying something on and wondering how it would look with a piece you have at home?
