My First Fix

Okay...I caved.
I got my first Stitch Fix last week...and let me just say this:
It was a BLAST!!!  
...and just like that, I'm hooked!

So you may be asking, "What is Stitch Fix?"

Stitch Fix is a personal styling service.  Basically, it's a personal shopper. :)  When I registered, I gave them my sizes, my body shape, my style, and my budget.  Then, they gave me an awesome personal stylist, Stephanie, who picked 5 pieces based on the information that I gave them.  And they shipped them right to my door.  I got to try those pieces on in the comfort of my home.  Uh...no trying things on in the dressing room hoping that they'll fit with the actual clothes that I want to wear them with?  Yes, please!!

"How much does it cost?"
It costs $20 for the styling fee.  When you get your items, the $20 is then applied to your purchase.  If you keep all 5 items, you get 25% off the total.  It's pretty nifty!

So just let me say this...I am not a fashion guru.  And I sure as heck am not a fashion blogger.  And I'm not a model or a photographer.  So I will show you the pieces that Stephanie picked for me, but you have to promise me one thing.  You cannot laugh.  I'm dead serious.  No laughing allowed.  Deal?  Okay...let's move on.

I took these in my bathroom with my point and shoot camera.  The lighting is a little off, so I apologize.  I told you...I'm no pro.  And my husband was out of town.

Oh...before I show you the goods, do you want to see the funniest video?  Yeah...I was a tad bit excited.




Okay...now that that's out of the way, I can show you my goodies!





It was wrapped so pretty!!  Isn't unwrapping a beautiful gift so much fun?  I think so.

I saw the colors that were chosen for this Fix and I was so excited and couldn't wait to try everything on!

I saw this top first.  It was a beautiful navy and white striped shirt with longer sleeves on them.  I knew I was going to like this one.  And I did.  It's a keeper.



This next top was so vibrant.  I couldn't wait to try it on, either!  But it was made from sheer, stretchy material and I knew it would cling.  I do not like clingy clothes.  I kind of feel like a stuffed sausage in this top.  It was definitely a no.  Adorable, yes!  But I sent it back.



Now, if you know me, you know that I have very muscular legs.  I have such a hard time finding jeans that fit.  When I do find a pair that fit, I buy 5 pairs of them...no joke.  So when I saw that there were jeans in my Fix, I was hesitant.  And then I saw that they were skinny jeans.  I knew that there was no way I was going to like them.



I decided I was going to give them a fair shot, like everything else, but they were like panty hose trying to put them on.   I was surprised I could get them up past mid-thigh.  But they did fit.  They were way too tight for my liking, so they went back too.

I fell in love with this sweater before I even put it on.  For some reason, I really love lightweight sweaters, and this would be perfect for spring!



But the more than I looked at it and wore it around, the more that I didn't like it.  So it went back as well.

My last piece was absolutely gorgeous.  If I see anything that sparkles, then you better believe I will be checking it out!!




The sad thing about this piece is that I don't go anywhere fancy enough to wear it.  I really loved, loved, loved this piece!! It was so beautiful.  But I had to send it back.

So there you have it!!  I adjusted my preferences so that next time I might have another great experience!  It was so fun getting to try things on in my own home, using clothes that I already have in my closet.  

The pieces that I'm not keeping get sent back in a prepaid package!  It's super easy to just drop it off at the post office!

I don't typically like showing people the clothes that I try on in the store...unless it's my mom.  So you got lucky, because you got to see all the pieces I tried on!!

  1. Stitch fix is so much fun! I thought the jeans looked super cute on you, but if they're not comfy it just doesn't work out. First shirt looks fantastic!

  3. I really liked the jeans on you! And OMG that necklace; I wouldn't have anywhere to wear it either, but it'd be so hard to return. I just got my first Stitch Fix last month and I'm hooked! Glad you liked it too
