So my first Stitch Fix was a bit of a disappointment. I had prepared myself for it, but I was still crushed when I didn’t like anything in it. I’ve read from a lot of fixers that you have to give them 1 or 2 tries to get your style pinned down. I got a little down about it though and didn’t get as excited for my second fix. Well # 2 came and I like it a whole lot more than the first one! YAY! When I opened the box and saw the colors and lace, I was SOOOOOOOOO happy! I was very specific about what I did and didn’t like in my first fix and they certainly got the message. I asked for warmer softer colors, pinks specifically, more lace, and more attention paid to my Pinterest board. The only thing they didn’t quite get is that I like fitted clothes more than tents… I’ll definitely be fixing that with the next fix and then I think we’ll be pretty close to perfect. Who knows, maybe I’ll love EVERY piece! I can be optimistic right?
I’ve been wondering lately if I really need someone else to do my shopping for me and if it’s really worth it. Well let me tell you something. Yesterday, we were at our local IFA and I found a nice shirt. I know right? IFA shopping? Don’t judge. So I thought I could quickly try it on over my shirt and make sure the fit was ok. I thought, this isn’t shopping. It will be quick and easy. Let’s just say that one shirt later I had 2 screaming babies, the youngest of which had a goose egg on her forhead… I remembered then why I don’t go shopping at all.
Thank you Stitch Fix for making my life so much easier and more fun! It’s wonderful to be able to have an awesome shopping experience right in your bedroom.
Pip Crew Neck Blouse $64
I loved this when I pulled it out of the box. It has nice lace detail on the bottom and it’s hard to see, but the detail on the bodice is tiny raised dots. I guess that’s what pips are? I loved the cream and the lightweight for summer. I didn’t like the fit. Can you tell if this is long sleeve or 3/4? Well I couldn’t and it looked awful if I tried to just push them up. I also would like it more fitted. From the side I look pregnant. I don’t have to have skin tight clothes, but I’ve worked hard after 2 kids to lose my baby weight and I would like people to see that I have a figure.
Gaelle Crochet Skirt $68
Have I told you how much I like lace? Seriously, it’s an addiction. I’ll add it to anything. This skirt was love at first sight. Then, I put it on… There was just something about the fit that bothered me that I couldn’t put my finger on. I also think the bottom is too jagged and not soft enough for my taste. I’m picky right? Remember though, that I am not supposed to buy anything unless I LOVE LOVE it and would wear it everyday.
Tricia Textured Dot Front-Pocket Blouse $48
This was the only thing in the box that I didn’t really like at all. I didn’t like the color, the baggy fit, the odd sleeves… Sorry. Not for me.
Haiden Distressed Straight Leg Jean $88
I have to say that I really do like the denim Stitch Fix sends. I’ve only tried 2 of course, but they seem thicker, good quality and are so stretchy and comfy. These were a little big on me though. I also don’t like holey or cuffed jeans so lesson learned. I’m putting that on my list as well.
Eliana Embellished Detail Dolman Top $54
Ahhh… I saved the best for last. This is just me. I love the beaded neckline and the sheer sparkle. It’s hard to tell, but it’s a nice pale peachy pink. It is lightweight, but still feels a little more like fall than summer. I kept it anyway. I LOVE this top! $54 is a little pricey for me. I’m telling them to tone down the prices for my next fix so we’ll see what they come up with.
All in all a HUGE improvement. I almost loved everything, and I was able to put my styling fee towards an item. I think to be worth it, all you really need is one thing you love. I feel like the next fix will be even better. I’ve pinned some new styles and I am excited to see what next month will bring.
If you are on the fence about Stitch Fix let me tell you how I think of it. You might be out $20 on your first fix. I think that’s about as bad as it gets. After that, you put your $20 styling fee towards what you buy. In an average month do you typically go shopping once and buy 1 thing? If you do, you aren’t going to spend any more than you would without Stitch Fix and this is so much easier. The anticipation is fun too. Just give it a try. You can pick your own price point and I don’t think you’ll regret it!
*I do get a commission if you sign up through my link, but I really do believe in this product after only 2 fixes. I know, it surprised me too.
