In the beginning of the year, I took myself shopping…and was reminded again why I love the personal styling of StitchFix so much. I ended the all-afternoon shopping excursion annoyed and worn out because of all of the different options and stores, with only two new items to show for it. Shopping just isn’t my thing, and with limited time as a mom, I don’t have time to spend like that.
This past month, I started looking forward to spring, and after cleaning out my closet, I realized I needed some new dresses in particular. So I scheduled a Fix… and kept all 5 items!
Here’s what I ended up with:
- Collective Concepts Katelynn Printed Dress. Oh, how I love this dress. Summery, flattering, colorful. Looks cute with my necklace from the Fix I got last spring too. I think I will be wearing this all summer!
2. Moda Luxe’s Daytona Zip Pocket Hobo Bag. I requested a new bag because it’s been years since I have bought a new purse. I think it was 2010? Yeah. I love the bold color of this one, and it’s a great size! It also coordinates quite well with another dress they sent me…
3. Pixley Ashtyn Dress. This dress is so cute and comfortable! It’s a high-quality cotton material, and I love the colors. It can be worn with tights and boots in the winter and sandals in the spring! With having young kids, I always request dresses that aren’t low cut and are a moderate length. I’m thrilled that both dresses fit the bill perfectly in this Fix.
Speaking of young kids… Someone wanted to join the modeling session! 😉 We needed a posing reminder first…
And moving on to the last few items…
4. Romolo Genevieve Stacked Chevron Pendant Necklace. Not only did my new bag match my dress, but this necklace looks smashing with it as well. I love the black and gold, and it’s been very versatile to wear both dressy and casual.
5. Lastly, the 41Hawthorn McQue Solid Lace Sleeve Blouse. This was my least favorite item of the bunch, but to be honest, I kept it because keeping all 5 items results in a 25% discount, so it actually saved me money to keep it. I’m considering selling it in one of those Stitch Fix groups on Facebook though. The color is fantastic, but it’s a little too, I don’t know, dainty? The sheerness of the lace sleeves bothers me a bit too. What do you think?
Overall, I am loving what my stylist picked out! If you’d like to give Stitch Fix a try, feel free to use my referral link! If you’re new to Stitch Fix, you fill out a style survey, and there are different price points you can pick. (I chose the least expensive, and most of my items have ranged from the $20s for the jewelry up to the $70s for dresses and jackets. The tops have averaged in the $40s, which I will pay for a nice top that I love.) Frankly, most of my closet contains Stitch Fix tops now because I love them so much and wear them all the time. But because I don’t want a closet full of clothes that I only wear once or twice and because they do tend to be on the higher side of my personal price point, I definitely only stick with the items that I absolutely LOVE.
Stitch Fix will send you 5 items, and you have 3 days to decide what to keep. You can write a note to your stylist and request certain types of items, like I did with the purse. You can schedule regular fixes or just every once in a while when you want to go “shopping” (which is what I do). It is so convenient – and exciting when a new package arrives. I’m especially excited to break out these new dresses as the warmer spring weather rolls in!
