I know, I know, where have I been and WHY is someone who claims to be a fashion lover so behind the Stitch Fix adoption process? Well, quite simply, it’s hard for me to spend money on “real” clothes right now since I spend 99% of my time in workout attire. I finally bit the bullet though thanks to Corey and now I’m happily addicted.
Here’s how my first fix played out (#selfies aren’t ideal for showing off the clothes, but you get the point. Apologies for the blurry ones!):
Eight Sixty Bobbi Textured Stripe Peplum Top: I loved the idea of this top. I think the peplum style is adorable and the material of the shirt was really cool- almost an eyelet. Sadly, I’m long torso’d and the waist band of the shirt hit me mid-rib cage and thus the peplum part of the shirt flared funny. RETURN
Level 99 Pandora Stretch Sueded Leggings: I love a good legging and even though I had just gotten some new black ones for my birthday, I decided to try these on. The fit was great- maybe a little snug, but hey, they’re leggings. Ultimately 2 things made my decision to return very simple. 1. My hands were BLACK just from getting these puppies on and off once! Fade much? 2. The sueded material made them feel wintery so not something I’d get much use out of here in FL. RETURN
Tart Galena Abstract Print Pleated Ponte Skirt: I admit, I was on the fence about this one. I’ve wanted a non-straight casual skirt for a while now, but have struggled with finding one I liked on my body. Let’s face it, my body type looks better in straight styles. I let Batch make the call on this one and he really liked it, so KEEP!
Donna Morgan Aska Abstract Print Belted Dress: I loved this from the second I saw the fabric in the box. It’s a great dress that’s SO versatile. Definitely a keeper- in fact, I wore it the same night I got it to a work dinner with Batch! I’m going to have fun styling this one for different seasons (boots, scarf, peep toes, flats, jacket…). KEEP!!!
Collective Concepts Denova Dot Print Blouse: I liked the mixed texture/fabric between the body of this top and the sleeves. The fit was ok for a simple casual top, but I wanted to be wow’d so I decided it wasn’t worth the money. RETURN
So there you have it, I kept 2 and returned 3 from my first fix. In the end, I actually liked (i.e. was willing to try on) every thing in my box, I just wanted to love it before I committed to keeping it. Everyone has said that the boxes/fixes get better and better the more you do as your stylist learns more about you and your preferences so I’m looking forward to my next fix. I tried to give detailed feedback on this fix and made some specific requests for my next one.
