Sitch Fix #1 - My Thoughts and Reviews

I was SUPER excited to get my 1st Stitch Fix today. Yep. I said 1st because I will definitely be doing it again! :) So much fun! If you haven't heard of Stitch Fix....here's the jist. You sign up at StitchFix.com and create a profile. In your profile, you answer questions about which type of clothes you like. (They give you pictures and you respond with how much you like/dislike the outfit.) You answer questions about your body type and how much you prefer to spend on items. Then for $20, you sign up to get your first fix. (The $20 you spend will go towards any piece you choose to keep.) You choose a shipping date and it's done! A personal stylist will choose 5 pieces and they deliver them to your door!! It's that easy! So when I got home, this was on my doorstep!

Okay. I'm a sucker for cute packaging! Look how adorable the inside of that box is!!!! Can you see that style card? Stitch Fix will show you the 5 pieces they chose for you and ways to wear them. Brilliant right?

Okay...so here is my review of the 5 pieces I received.
 
#1 - Kensie Jeans - Johnny Skinny Jeans - $88
 
Let's me honest. I have a weird shaped body. I gain ALL of my weight in my stomach. So when I saw Skinny Jean on the list of things they were sending my way, I laughed out loud. Ain't no way they are going to get that right! Wrong! I love! They are dark denim and very stretching. They are fitted in the all the right areas.
 
 
Verdict: KEEP
 
#2 - Collective Concepts - Esten Button-Up Sleeveless Blouse - $54.00
 
When I pulled this piece out I didn't think it would work. I wasn't crazy about the color. It says Fuchsia, but it is really maroon to me. I like tops like this to wear under cardigans at work, but this isn't one I would have pulled off the rack.
 


 
Verdict: KEEP
 
#3 - Mavi- Kalie Denim Jacket - $98.00
 
I kind of knew I wouldn't keep this piece before I opened it up. I already have a few jean jackets and $98.00. Uh. No thanks. It helped me confirm that decision when it didn't fit. Too tight around the waist and too long in the arms. Yuck.
 
Verdict: RETURN
 
#4 - Tart - Vida Zip-Up Cardigan - $78.00
 
I LOVED this. As soon as I pulled it out, I was in love. I love the thumb holes, the gray, the stripes. LOVE. And in all honesty I think I would get a lot of good out of it. However, I cannot justify spending $80.00 on a sweatshirt. I just can't. Plus...I didn't like it zipped up. The band across the waist was not flattering.
 
Verdict: RETURN
 
#5 - Rikka - Betty Chevron Infinity Scarf  - $32.00
 
Super cute and who doesn't love a chevron scarf, but I have about 6. Got them on Jane.com for super cheap so I just didn't need it.
 
 
Verdict: RETURN
 
All in all, I'm very happy with my first Fix. Here is what I love about it:
1. They do the shopping for me.
2. They choose pieces that I would never pick out, but may (and did) like.
3. They have pieces you can't find near my hometown.
4. I'm not really out anything but $20 IF I choose not to keep anything.
 
If you want to try it out, I would love for you to click here and use me as a referral! Let me know if you try it and like it. Oh...and I'll be scheduling my next fix this weekend!!!

  2. I got the jacket and blouse in my stitch fix last night and your blog came up when i was googling about the jacket because I was wavering. Thanks for your review! It helped me decide to return the jacket. Mine was long in the arms too and I just felt like it was a little too short for me overall.
