My First StitchFix

Happy Saturday!

Cheer up Puddin', it's the weekend!

When a number of my favorite bloggers posted about their experience with StitchFix, I was intrigued!

When you sign up for StitchFix, you fill out a detailed survey about your style.  You describe your body type, tell them what patterns and colors you like and dislike, rate some example outfits, and much more!  Then you schedule your fix and they send you five pieces.  When your package arrives, you are able try the items on and see how they go with the rest of your wardrobe.  Then you decide what you want and send back the rest (in a prepaid envelope that comes with the original package).  The initial styling costs $20, but if you keep any of the items, that money goes towards your purchase.  If you purchase all 5 items, you get 25% off!

So what did I get?

1. Alberta Lace Overlay Short Sleeve Top ($54)

I wanted to love this shirt.  I loved the idea of it, but the fit just wasn't right.  It was short and boxy.  I'm all about clothing that makes me look smaller and this was not doing that.

2. Judah Pencil Skirt ($68)

Not a fan.  Pencil skirts aren't really my favorite thing in the world.  The fit was off and I wasn't excited about the piece in general.

3. Aimes Crochet Belted Fit and Flare Dress ($58)

This was a really cute dress and fit me pretty well, but it just isn't my style.
4. Waters Diamond Print Maxi Dress ($78)

I love maxi dresses, but not this one!  I feel like this dress makes me look like I'm 10 years older than I am.  I wasn't in love with the neckline and the fit wasn't great.  It seemed kind of short and hello extra flap of material under my boobs.

5. Dalton Embroidered Back Blouse ($64)

Bingo!  Even though it's fairly see through and the tag says dry clean only (which I usually take as a mere recommendation), I absolutely loved this top!  It's a little pricey, but it's beautiful and the 20 bucks I already invested in the fix helps a bit.

Honestly, this fix wasn't really a huge success for me, but here's the beauty of StitchFix: it gets better over time!  When I checked out, I filled out a questionnaire, evaluating each piece and leaving a ton of feedback.  As the stylists get to know me, I'm sure the selections will fit both my style and my body better and better.  The pieces are also fairly expensive for my bank account, which I mentioned in my questionnaire.  But at the same time, I'm also trying to "adult" my wardrobe and invest in some quality pieces that I will keep for a while.

Overall, I enjoyed the experience and I'm looking forward to seeing how my next fix goes.  If you're interested in signing up, here's an invite!
