My First Stitch Fix Box!

Let me just preface this entire post by saying that I am definitely a bargain hunter when it comes to clothes--some of my favorite items are from garage sales/Goodwill/Walmart/Secondhand stores!   You will probably rarely see me post anything above $40 unless I love it a lot and it's really good!

Happy Wednesday, friends!   It's been entirely too long since my last post--life has been super busy, and I'm trying to revamp my blog/website.    I've seen lots of people that have tried Stitch Fix, but didn't try it myself until I got a referral code from my sister-in-law.    I figured I'd give it a shot, because it was a free box, and if I didn't like anything, I wasn't out any money. 

Stitch Fix lets you schedule automatic deliveries, or on demand deliveries (I chose this option for my first box).    Basically, it's a $20 styling fee for each box, and if you choose to purchase an item, your styling fee will go towards that purchase.   When you create an account, you'll fill out a style profile, which asks all of your sizes, how you want items to fit, what colors and patterns you like, what you'd like to receive in your box, etc.    After you get your box and review what's inside, you'll decide if you want to keep or return any of the items.   You can rate how you felt about each item, the price, if you want some different items in your next box, or you can add notes to your stylist also. 

When I took my style quiz, I specified that I was looking for some new pieces for work.   You may know that I recently had my third baby back in February, and since she was born, I am actually below my pre-pregnancy weight (yay!), so all of my pants/jeans are a little too big now.  I work in an office, so most of my wardrobe needs to be professional attire instead of casual jeans and t-shirts (although we are allowed to wear jeans on Fridays).   You can also link your Instagram account and any of your Pinterest style boards, so they can see what your style is, which is really neat!  Let me show you what I got!

I loved this dress when I pulled it out of the box!   I love the color and the style (navy blue is one of my faves!)  However, when I tried it on, I didn't think it was flattering on my midsection.  It was comfortable and I liked the fabric a lot--I would maybe have considered it if it was more flattering on me, even though it was above my "price range" 😀

I thought this top and pants were super cute, but I couldn't get past the price point.  Both were navy and would have been perfect for work, but were a little out of my price range, unfortunately.

I loved the style of this sweater (I love a good cardigan!)!    I debated back and forth a long time before ultimately deciding to send it back.   It was more of an orange-y color than it looks like in this picture, so I wasn't sure what it would pair with the best.   I'd love to check out a different color if I order another box sometime!


This necklace was pretty, but it wasn't really quite my style.  It was pretty light to wear and would have gone with a lot of clothing items I have at home, but I wasn't drawn to it enough to keep it.  

Overall, I thought it was a good first experience with Stitch Fix, even though I ended up returning everything I got.   I feel like I know what to request next time and to request a couple of lower price points.   I'm looking forward to trying a box again sometime!
