My fourth shipment from Stitch Fix arrived this week and it was a box full of eye candy! I am so, so, so excited to share my latest fix with you. Are you ready? Let me take you on a visual tour of my fix!
How Stitch Fix Works
Just in case you haven't heard of the amazing-ness that is Stitch Fix yet, let me be the first to tell you ALL about it! Stitch Fix is an online personal styling service. To get started, go to StitchFix.com create an account (it's free to join) and complete a style profile. This is a brief survey of your sizes, personal style, and price limits. The entire process takes about 10 minutes and you even have a chance to tell your stylist about any areas of your body that you like to flaunt (or hide!)
Once your style profile is complete, you can make arrangements to schedule your first fix. For a $20 styling fee, you will be sent a box with 5 items inside. (Shipping is free.) You can try on all of the items in the comfort of your home and with the convenience of your closet nearby. Pair each item with pants, shoes, and accessories that you already own. It's like playing dress up. Seriously, it is SO much fun.
Keep any items you want and return the rest within three days. A pre-addressed shipping bag is included with your fix. Returns are free too! Your $20 styling fee is deducted front the cost of any items you keep. (So even if you keep just one thing, you get a $20 discount on that item).
Ok, that's enough information about the service. Let's get to my fix!
Stitch Fix #4 - Whats in the BoxOpening the box revealed an envelop declaring that my stylist thought I would love the pieces in my fix.
The inside of the box reminds me of the process, as well as a reminder that I should try on each piece (even if it doesn't seem like I will like it at all.)
I couldn't wait another moment. I had to tear open the seal and see the clothes inside!
Oh. My. Word.
The colors. The beautiful colors.
I'm going to stop
talking typing for a minute and let you take it all in.
I told you these clothes were some serious eye candy!
In my previous Stitch Fix blog posts, I only showed photos of the clothes that I felt comfortable in. And, of course, people would comment at the end of EVERY post that they wished they could see me wearing the items that I wasn't so comfortable showing off. This time I decided to share photos of myself wearing every single garment included in my fix.
Playing Dress Up
First up was the Mada Chevron Sleeveless Dress. I loved how bold and graphic the print was. I did not love how washed out I looked with my pale skin. I had to pair it with black tights to add some contrast and since summer will be here soon I knew I would not be rocking out black tights very often in the coming months. The dress was also too baggy on top. This one was destined to be returned.
My next item was the Julia Utility Jacket. I adored the bright kelly green and the navy blue polka dot detail on the inner seams (look at my rolled up sleeves). Unfortunately, this jacket was a little too big in the shoulders and collar. It felt too bulky on me and looked like I was wearing my mom's jacket. I had to wear a scarf to sort of "fill" the extra space. Sadly, this piece was also returned.
My third item was the beautiful pair of Zoe Open Shape Metal Earrings. LOVE! The nice thing about earring is that they always fit! This pair was definitely a keeper.
I tried on the Sophia Skinny Jeans from Kenzie with the purple Natasha Front Pocket Sleeveless Blouse. Just like the green jacket, I adored the color of this blouse, but it was a little too big on top. I don't generally wear v-neck tops and the arm holes were a little too big as well. It looked great paired with a lightweight dark purple cardigan, but I would feel very uncomfortable
Here is the breakdown of each garment, price, and what I decided to keep.
Mada Chevron Sleeveless Dress, $68, return
Julia Utility Jacket, $78, return
Zoe Open Shape Metal Earrings, $32, keep
Natasha Front Pocket Sleeveless Blouse, $54, return
Sophia Skinny Jeans, $88, keep
