Stitch Fix Review #1

Happy Friday Everyone! I hope your week has been going well and you are looking forward to an exciting weekend ahead.  As of right now, we do not have any major plans so I am planning to work on my office, get some cleaning done and spend some time reading.  Pretty much my ideal weekend, actually.
 
Today I wanted to share with you a little bit about Stitchfix! If you have not heard about them before, it's a personal style service for men and women that evolves with your tastes, needs and lifestyle.  You can choose to get boxes every month, every other month or whenever you want them to come. They send you a box of clothing or accessories for you to try on, then you can either buy the items or send them back.  The ones you keep, you pay for and the ones you don't keep send back you don't.  

I would first like to talk about how lovely their packaging is.  The box was wrapped nicely, the items were folded perfectly and they had step-by-step instructions on how to enjoy my first "fix".  Not to mention everything was well protected so I did not have to worry that anything was damaged upon arrival.



For my first box, I asked my stylist to give me something casual to wear for Valentine's Day.  And here is what she gave me.  I tried to put the items together into outfits to keep give a general idea of how they were to be worn.  Here are two outfits I put together with what I was sent {FYI the shoes in the first picture are my own from Zulily - you can see a similar pair here}.

Individual Item Breakdown


Statement Jane Scissor Hem Cuffed Skinny
When it comes to jeans, I have the hardest time finding jeans that fit me right.  My stylist did a great job picking the right shape, fit, and length but these were just a little bit too tight.  For the price, I decided I would just send them back and wait and see what she comes up with next time I get a box.  
 Price: $88.00          Status: Sent Back



Market and Spruce Chaplin Lined Hooded Anorak Jacket 
When I opened the box and saw this jacket, I was so thrilled.  I have been searching for a military jacket to wear during the Spring and Fall months.  Unfortunately, the jacket did not fit me the way I was hoping and had to send it back.  But I was in love with the red piping and the black and white striped lining.  I'm hoping I can find something similar to this soon!
 Price: $94.00          Status: Sent Back



41 Hawthorne Gideon Polka Dot Sweater 
I loved this sweater, but the color really did not work well for me.  If it had been more of a white versus the off white, it might have worked better, but it was just not great with my fair skin.  From a fit perspective, I loved how the sweater fit.  The cuff on the sleeve and waist made the shirt stay in place and it did not hug me in any places I did not want it to.  
Price: $68.00          Status: Sent Back



Report Footwear Moulay Fringe Ballet Flats 
I am so sad these shoes were just a little bit too big.  Normally I would have done an exchange, but with them being just slightly too big, I assumed the next size down would have been too small.  And I was looking for something I could just slip on and go.  So I sadly sent these back.  
Price: $40.00          Status: Sent back



Laila Jayde Bowie Solid Dolman Sleeve Top 
Unfortunately, the picture I took of the top turned out super blurry, which is ironic because this is the only item I kept out of all of the items they sent me! I did find a picture of the item so you all can see what I was sent, but I was sent this in a burgundy/wine color that is perfect since we are still in winter.  Next time I wear it, I will snag a picture and share it to Instagram or Twitter.  
Price: $58.00          Status: Sent back

So that is my first StitchFix box! I am super excited with everything she sent me and I cannot wait to get my second box later this month!

Thinking about getting a box of your own? Check out how you can get started here at the StitchFix website.  If you do decide to get a box, let me know! I'd love to see what your stylist sends you.

Question of the Day: If you could gt a box, what would you hope came in your box?
I'd love to hear from you!
