Stitch Fix Review #1

It happened. I took the plunge. I have been eyeing Stitch Fix for a while now and finally decided to sign up! It took about a month to get my first fix, but, it came in the mail yesterday!!!

If you don't know what Stitch Fix is, basically it is an online personal shopper/stylist. You fill out a brief survey with your measurements, sizing and answer style questions and then they send you clothes that meet your profile. Actually, it's as simple as that! I also took the tips from other blogs that I had read, prior to taking the "plunge", and referenced a Pinterest page that had my style preferences on it. Or at least, what I want my style to be. If you are interested in trying Stitch Fix, you can use my referral link to get to the website and you can sign up!

And here are my fixes!


First of all... I am not a selfie taker. This is my first selfie in the mirror try. So I apologize. Next time, I'll wash the rug in the bathroom and maybe make the bed. :) 

These pants fit awesome. I LOVE the way they feel and fit. Super stretchy and I think I'd wear them all the time. There are two negatives though... 1. The color. These are a great blush color. I actually like the color, except it almost looks like I'm not wearing pants! 2. The color/tightness. Because these are a bit lighter in color they show EVERYTHING on the backs of my legs. I tried to take a picture of the back so you could see how it hugs my legs. Gross, but I think I could see a bit of hail damage through these pants. :)
STATUS - Returning


 I love this shirt! Great material and hangs really well. Interestingly, this is the LAST item I thought I would keep from first glance. 

With jeans. Would be great for a date night, if we get one of those soon. 

Love the detail on the sleeves. I tried to get a good picture of the sleeves because they are so cute!
My stylist/the style card that came with the shirt indicated to wear it with a skirt (it had an emerald one) so I tried it with this orangy/pink one. It actually looks better in the picture than it does on. The skirt has a texture to it and I'm not sure I like it with the shirt. 

This feels a little "safe" to me, but I actually like this look quite a bit and would probably wear it to work as well.
STATUS - Keeping

I am on the fence with this one. I really like the fit, color and material. The stripes on the arms are black and the stripes on the body of the sweater are blue, which makes it SUPER coordinatable. However, I don't know that it will wash well - and I am not the greatest at clothing maintenance in the first place. 

With skinny jeans and a polka dot scarf. 

Black skinny pants, long necklace and flats. This would be perfect for a day at the zoo with the boys or runny errands/shopping. 
 STATUS - Ho Hum... what to do? 


I love the print in this skirt. It's navy blue with birds on it. But, I don't love the way it fits me. My butt looks big. Honestly, I'm not sure if it's the material or the cut but I'm not feeling it. Five points if you can find my personal stylist (Dillon-the-Villain) sitting on the counter watching me. :) 
I may need a second opinion on this one. I do plan on taking it to work and having my friend Lyndse give me her two cents before making a final decision. 
STATUS - Leaning towards NO.


These are Kate Spade earrings but are very similar to the ones that were in my fix. These earrings can be found here and are $39. 

These earrings are actually quite a bit out of my comfort zone but I really like them. I've been wanting to stretch a little out of my comfort zone, especially in the jewelry arena and I think this is a great first step. 

STATUS - Keeping

So there you go... my first stitch fix. A few things I didn't mention above... When you receive your fix, they also send styling cards that give you several ideas for how to mix and match your fixes with what you already have. This is AWESOME for me because I struggle with pairing with new things or thinking "outside of the box." Also, you get to give feedback when you check out with your purchases. So the fixes are supposed to get better each time. Woo hoo!

  1. Love the sweater! It all looks great to me, ya skinny mini ;-) But seriously, if you're not sure about the sweater maybe return it. Looks like you're keeping some super cute pieces.
