My Thanksgiving weekend was full of shopping. For myself. Without leaving the house. Yes yes, my first Stitch Fix arrived on Wednesday afternoon!
(If you haven’t heard of Stitch Fix, what you do is sign up, fill out a style questionnaire and then schedule a “Fix”. A stylist will pick out 5 pieces of clothing or jewelry for you, and then you have 3 days to decide what you want to keep!)
When I signed up last month, I promised many of you that I’d blog my first shipment, so here it is! Overall, I LOVE what I received…but I need your help because there are a couple of items I’m on the fence about…
Item numero uno was a beautiful coral “tulip-sleeve” blouse from 19 Cooper. I really love the color and the dressy-ness of it…but I am not so sure about the fit. It’s flowy but short, and I typically like tops to be longer if they’re flowy so I can wear skinny pants with them to balance out the flow on top. Hmmm…what do you think?
Next up, I pulled out a leather jacket. I had told my stylist that I really, really needed a fall jacket. I actually love this, and it fits just great – which is sometimes hard to find with my short arms – but I’m really just not a leather jacket-wearing kinda girl. I don’t know if I can pull this off 🙂
Actually, I do know. I can’t pull this off. See what I mean?
This third item though…this is my jam. Definitely my favorite from the bunch! The 41Hawthorn striped henley blouse is dressier – could be worn for an office meeting or a dinner out with friends – which is exactly what I need. It’s flowy but longer, so I can pair it with skinny jeans or black pants. And super double bonus – the pattern and colors would easily hide Aquaphor stains if I wanted to wear it around Brenna. YES PLEASE! I’ve already got this top lined up to be worn at an event we have next week 🙂
And for my last two items. I really love these, and I got real excited when I pulled out this gold necklace from Bay to Baubles because I’ve been wanting a long gold necklace, and I LOVE the Chevron charms on it. However, I feel like the two top charms hit me in a really weird spot – anyone else??
And the top, from Market and Spruce – I really like it. I like the color and the fit, and it’s a super soft material. My biggest problem with the top is the price – it’s way more than I would typically spend on a casual top that I would probably end up wearing with leggings around the house or to run errands. I think this one might have to go in the no pile for that reason?
All in all, I was so happy with my shipment. I feel like my stylist totally nailed my style but also sent me outside of my comfort zone a bit, which is what I need! And they really seemed to listen my instructions of what I need – I was very specific about dealing with Aquaphor on a daily basis. I’m so excited to schedule my next shipment at some point…maybe in the later winter or early spring, when I need another wardrobe change 🙂 The best part was that it was SO EASY – no navigating the mall with a huge stroller and complaining kids.
Have you tried Stitch Fix yet? What did you think? And give me some input – what items should I keep?? 🙂
