My First Stitch Fix

I purchased my Stitch Fix with my own money and was not asked to provide this review.  The link below does contain my referral but I will not be otherwise compensated for this post.

I heard about Stitch Fix a few months ago through some friends that had tried it and really liked it.  I am not a big clothes shopper - I honestly cannot remember the last time I went clothes shopping for myself, except say for running attire.  I find this very funny because I used to LOVE to go shopping, but nevertheless, my wardrobe is in desperate need of some new pieces so I decided to give Stitch Fix a try to see how it went.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with Stitch Fix, let me give you a brief overview.


When you first start with Stitch Fix you will create an online style profile, which includes your sizes and picking out what types of styles you like.  This will help the stylists pick what pieces to send you - if you have a Pinterest board with outfit ideas you can even include that to give them even more insight into what you like.  The stylists will hand-pick 5 items they think you will like and send them to you - you keep and pay for what you like and return the rest in a prepaid envelope.  Creating your profile will cost you $20 but that amount is credited towards your purchase.  Each item comes with styling tips, so those of us that are, ahem, fashion impaired will know how to dress each item up or down to suit any occassion.


Due to the popular demand of Stitch Fix these days it took over a month to get my first fix, but I will get them monthly from now on.  I can now provide feedback to my stylist so they can better select items I will love!  Here's a peak at what was in my first Stitch Fix:


Esten Button Up Sleeveless Blouse, paired with a Crosby Striped Maxi Skirt

I honestly love the skirt - the top is ok (I'm not a big fan of showing my arms).  I paired them together because the style card said they would look well but overall I liked the skirt paired better with a black top I already had in my closet.  I'm 99% sure I will be keeping the skirt but the jury is still out on the top.


Wrenn V-Neck Jersey Top

I like this top, and it's very soft (I just threw on a pair of shorts that I already had), but it does cling a little in places I don't want to accentuate.  Jury is still out on this one as well.


Maddison Geo Print Belted Shirt Dress

I really love the pattern, but...I dunno.  It just doesn't look quite right on me for some reason.  This one is going back.


Juno Small Folded Clutch

I don't really go out often enough to justify a purse, plus I hate having to hold stuff, so this is also going back.

So what do you guys think??  Help me decide whether to keep these tops!  Have you ever tried Stitch Fix??
