Stitch Fix Review #1

I am so excited about today’s post because it features my first ever Stitch Fix (referral link)! I remember when you had to get “invited” to Stitch Fix; I’ve had an account ever since it was new, but I’ve never had the opportunity to try it. That is, until now! My sweet in-laws gave me a gift card for my recent birthday.

It’s thrilling to receive a mystery box of hand-picked items at your doorstep. That experience along is enough for me to try Stitch Fix again! Also, I found that the items I was sent are unlike anything I’ve seen in stores lately, which is great for someone looking to add unique items to their wardrobe.

If you’re unfamiliar with Stitch Fix, it’s awesome! All you do is fill out a style profile and get paired with a stylist. Then, you select the day you’d like to receive your fix and pay a $20 styling fee (which you get to use toward any purchases you make). When your Fix comes, you have 3 days to try everything on and decide what you’re going to keep/return. Finally, you keep/pay for what you want and send the rest back in a pre-paid mailing envelope! If you keep everything in your box, you get a 25% off discount.

Without further adieu, here is a look at my first Fix!

Bay to Baubles Cyrus Metal Filgree Fringe Pendant – $37 – Returned

As cute as this necklace is, I couldn’t justify spending $37 on something I could find at Target or Forever 21 for half the price. Plus, I recently bought a necklace very similar to this, so I didn’t think I needed it.

Liverpool Mira Skinny Jean – $78 – Returned

These jeans (which are actually more like leggings) are so comfortable. They have an elastic waistband and jean-like details. Despite the comfort-factor of these bottoms, I couldn’t justify spending $78 on a pair of leggings, especially since I already own 3 or 4 pairs of similar pants.

41Hawthorn Presley Colorblock Button-Back Sweater – $68 – Returned

This sweater was not for me. Though I like the loose fit and the button-back detail, the colors of this sweater were way too bland for me. I also didn’t like the pattern on the sweater; the asymmetrical colorblocking just looked weird.

Skies Are Blue Brite Quilted Jacket – $88 – Kept

love this jacket. The blue and gold details are perfect together! This jacket isn’t heavy at all, but it also isn’t too light, making it perfect for spring and fall. It has a little extra room in, so it will  be so easy to layer with sweaters on cooler days!

41 Hawthorn Lizzy Colorblock Striped Sweater – $68 – Returned

This sweater is not my style at all. While it is incredibly soft and comfortable, the stripes were unflattering and the colorful blues were not my favorite color to wear.

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with my first Stitch Fix. I would have loved to keep the jeans and the necklace if they were more affordable. However, I’m very pleased with the one item I did decide to keep, and I can’t wait to style it this fall!
