This is my third Stitch Fix box, but because I received my first two before I started this blog, and I didn’t post about them on my previous blog, I can’t link to those for you. I can tell you that both my previous boxes were great. I kept a cute top and a dress from my first one, and I kept the entire second box! I have really, really loved this service. Living in a rural area of a rural state, shopping is not easy. Add to that the fact that I have always been “fashionably challenged”, and can use all the help I can get with what goes well with what. This is just what I needed. And I never even have to leave my house – cute clothes in my size just come to my door! How can you beat that?!
If you don’t know what Stitch Fix is or how it works, when you sign up you fill out a style profile to let them know what kinds of things you like and don’t like, what your sizes are, etc.Then a stylist will select 5 items especially for you. You pay $20 for the box at the time that they send it. When you get the box, try everything on. They give you three days to decide what you want to keep, and what you want to send back. They include a postage paid bag, so sending your unwanted items back is easy. Your $20 styling fee goes towards what you keep. AND if you keep the whole box, you get %25 off! If you have any questions let me know. If you would like to try them out, I would really appreciate you using my referral link. Let me show you what I got this time around.
First up is the Renee C Luna Graphic Floral Print Blouse. I thought this was cute – a little out of my comfort zone, but then that is one of the reasons I love Stitch Fix. It also has a really cute detail on the back. I paired it with the Kut From The Kloth Danny 5-Pocket Knit Pants that they sent me, as well as the Bay to Baubles Adina Stone & Chain Fringe Pendant Necklace. I love that my stylist sent me a complete outfit! The top is light and flowy, and will take me into fall nicely. The pants are almost like leggings, but a bit thicker, (no panty lines!) and nice. The necklace is a bit overpriced for what it is, in my opinion, but really helps makes the outfit. Verdict: I’m keeping the top, and the pants. I’m still on the fence with the necklace….
Next up is this adorable Daniel Rainn Laramie Herringbone Key Hole Blouse. This was an instant yes for me. It’s super cute, and I can add a jacket or cardigan as the weather starts to get colder. It also goes perfectly with the pants and the pendant necklace. Verdict: Keep!
Lastly is this Donna Morgan Stefanie 3/4 Sleeve Mixed Print Dress, which, you won’t see me wearing because sadly it was just that awful! I was sure when I saw the picture on the styling card I would not be keeping this one, and trying it on confirmed it. It was definitely not me, and was just not flattering on me. It accented my chest in a weird way, and made me look slightly pregnant. Verdict: this was a quick no for me.
So there you have it. While this box wasn’t a home run, I think it was really good. I don’t need to keep every item every time. My stylist is definitely listening to my requests (this time I asked for items to take me into fall) and looking at my Pinterest board, and I have had no problem with sizing so far. I can’t wait to get my box next month!
