Welcome to my first blog post & first stitch fix ever!
I am so excited to finally be able to try Stitch Fix. Being overseas I really love the convenience of receiving this subscription service once a month.
You can select how often you’d like to receive your box. Either every 2-3 weeks, once a month, every other month, or every 3 months. It costs $20 for the “styling fee” which you can use toward your purchase when you receive your box. If you decide not to keep anything in your box, you lose that $20 credit. However, if you decide to keep everything in your box, you get the $20 toward your purchase AND 25% off the total! Thats such a plus.
My favorite part of this subscription box is how customized it is. All of the pieces in your box are hand selected by a personal stylist who looks carefully through your “style profile” before putting it together. They also give you the choice to attach your Pinterest fashion board to your account so that they can see more of what you like to wear. Included in the box is a personal note from your stylist explaining why she picked those items for you. I LOVE THAT! It’s like having a pin pal 😀
Here is my full detail review of the items I received in my 1st Fix & what i decided to keep or send back.
1. Kathy Striped Fit & Flare Dress (By: Pixley) $68.00
When I first saw this dress I though the cut looked super cute. I have always wanted to try the fit and flare short style dresses. However, I don’t like that its striped. I knew right away that this dress was going to make me look wide. I was right. I love the cut of the dress, but those stripes ruin it. This dress also has one of those flimsy cheap zippers that looks like its going to break after a couple wears.
Verdict: SENT BACK
2. Tucker Mixed Print 3/4 Sleeve Blouse (By: Renee C.) $48.00
When i pulled this out of the box the colors just blew me away. This cobalt blue may actually be my new favorite color. 😉 I also love the paisley pattern, its very spring/summery. The fabric is light weight, delicate, and soft. I can’t find anything wrong with this blouse… But I’m just not sure if i wanted to spend $48.00 on it. What do you think?
Verdict: Undecided. HELP!
3. Marson Wide Leg Jean (By: Dear John) $78.00
When I filled out my stitch fix questionnaire, I specifically asked my stylist to send me a pair of bell bottom jeans. Something that would look professional to wear to work, instead of slacks. & she totally delivered! These jeans are so comfortable I could sleep in them 😛 I love the dark wash & how the pockets look sleek and functional. I paired these jeans with the Tucker Mixed Print blouse they sent & some new shoes from Old Navy.
4. McCarthy Cutout Detail Blouse (By: Pixley) $48.00
This top is extremely see-through & its almost impossible to wear anything underneath it. The cut outs are really cute, but this top just fits weird on me. I also paired it with boyfriend jeans & a pair of ballet flats from Old Navy. But, I just can’t see myself wearing it or being comfortable in this top, so…
Verdict: SENT BACK
5. Rainne Multi-Strand Beaded Necklace (By: Zad) $34.00
When I saw that they sent a necklace that costs $34 (on the boxes customs form) I told my husband “there’s no way I’m spending thirty-four bucks on a beaded necklace.” But I guess I should seriously take that back… lol.
This may be the most gorgeous necklace I’ve seen in a long time. Not only is it gorgeous, its also made extremely well. Its light weight but seems like it won’t break after a few wears. The colors are everything i love; turquoise, gold, cream, and bronze. The multi-strand detail is perfect to dress up tons of outfits.
Verdict: KEEP, DUHH!
What do you guys think of my first Stitch Fix? Should I keep the Cobalt Blue blouse or send it back?! I just can’t decide.
Overall, Im really satisfied with Stitch Fix & think I’m going to keep them coming. Lets see what my stylist picks next!
