My First Stitch Fix

Have you heard about Stitch Fix? Maybe I'm living in the dark ages, but I'd just heard about it a few weeks ago. If you haven't heard about it, it's this super cool website that basically gives you a personal stylist. You sign-up, fill out a style survey, and then schedule your Fix.

Once you receive your cute little box, you check everything out, try it on, and then go back to your Stitch Fix page to review the items. What you want to keep you keep and what you don't want to keep, you send back in the handy return envelope (postage provided) they give you. It costs $20, but that $20 does go towards anything you keep. You just pay the difference.

Really, it's very simple. And, I like simple.

Here's what came in my box. I didn't think ahead to keep the official names of the items.... and the lighting isn't the greatest, but you'll get the idea.

Item #1 - Mint and White Striped Cardigan

In the description of this item (each item comes with a little description, along with idea of how to wear it and what to match with it), it mentioned that this was perfect for "cool summer nights." I don't know where my stylists lives, but there is nothing cool about summer in Florida. Regardless, this cardigan is very light and filmy. I still wear cardigans to work (paired with a camisole), so I appreciate one that covers, but stills breathes.

Item #2 - Cream and Black Polka Dot Tab Sleeve Top

LOVED the style of this top. Perfect fit.... very easy to dress up or down. My only problem was the material. Again.... I live in the Sunshine State. It was very silky and I could just imagine trying to wear that outside.

Item #3 - Red Cowl Neck Sleeveless Top

Cute item and very comfy. Unfortunately, it was really clingy. To all the areas.

Items #4 and #5 - Green sleeveless top and silver circle necklace

Both were very cute. The necklace was the perfect long length and I loved the color of the top. The top was a bit short for my tastes and the buttons gaped at The Girls.

What did I keep?........

I actually am wearing it today and have already received several compliments! I just happened to have a tank that was the exact mint of the stripes. It's a different piece of clothing from anything else I had and it was a good price, so it was a keeper!

Overall, I am REALLY happy with my first Stitch Fix experience! I'm already looking forward to next month's box. I was in no way compensated for this review, but I do get referral credit if you use this link to sign up (I'd love you dearly :) ).
