I love fashion. I’m just not super fashion savvy. My wardrobe tends to be fairly boring.
Scrubs and tee shirts for work, yoga pants at home after work, and my version of dressing nicely on the weekends. This usually consists of my favorite skinny jeans, boots and a comfy dolman top. Nothing too fancy, but it works for me.
However, I want to expand my wardrobe a bit, and I want a few staples that can be dressed up a bit more than my comfy, soft shirts and oversized sweaters.
After searching around online a bit, and not really knowing what to pick out for myself, I decided to give Stitch Fix a try.
If you have never heard of Stitch Fix before, they are online personal shoppers. You fill out a style profile and your personal stylist picks out 5 items that she thinks you will love. They are delivered to your door with cards and tips telling you exactly how to style each piece and a pre-paid return envelope for anything you’re not crazy about.
You have three days to try everything on and figure out what you are keeping and what you want to return. If you decide to keep all 5 items, you get 25% off your purchase — which is a pretty sweet deal. There is a $20 styling fee that you put down when you schedule your fix, but that goes towards anything you buy.
I was a total cheater, and looked at what was coming in my fix as soon as I got the notification that it was on its way. I immediately fell in love with a few of the items just based on their pictures and it made me even more excited for them to arrive.
My fix showed up a day early, and as soon as I got home from work I tried everything on. Then I brought it all to my moms and made her take pictures of each outfit. She wasn’t super thrilled to take the pictures for me (she is not the greatest photographer) but she did really like each of the items and was just as excited as I was to check them out.
So — I got 5 items. A pair of skinny jeans, an awesome denim jacket and 3 shirts.
I love, love, LOVE this exposed zipper dolman top. It looks super cute paired with the skinny jeans, and I have the perfect pair of booties to go with it. It’s just my style and I can picture myself wearing this top very frequently. This was the only item that didn’t have a picture in my preview online, so I was very pleasantly surprised by it.
I never wear cowl necks, and when I first saw the picture of this, I hated it. I figured that I would never in a million years like it, and I wondered if I would ever even try it on. It was the first thing I pulled out of the box and the subtle patter and fun texture immediately drew me in. It’s a super comfy top, and I think it would also look good with black leggings and a black tank under it (it’s a little bit see through).
This moto jacket is my new obsession. I’m literally obsessed with it. I just keep taking it out and looking at it. I LOVE it so much — it is going to be a constant staple in my wardrobe this spring. It can be dressed up or down, plus it’s super comfortable. I have some bright tops that are going to look perfect under this jacket. Did I mention I love it?!
I loved this stripe top when I saw it online. I loved it when I first took it out of the box. Then I put it on and I hated it. However, the more I wore it, the more I liked it. I think I would like it better with gray jeans or with darker denim. It’s one that I’m honestly only getting because it ends up being “free” when I take the 25% discount into account. I do like it, but I really wanted to love it.
The jeans are the only other item that I am on the fence about. The style is perfect for me, and I love that the denim is soft and has a decent amount of stretch. I tend to be in between sizes, and they sent me the bigger size of the two. They fit okay, the length is perfect and I do really like how they fit in the thigh area, my only concern is how stretched out and big they would be in the waist after wearing them for a few hours.
All in all, I am beyond thrilled with this fix. I do plan on keeping everything as the $20 credit and 25% off really make it worth it.
I plan on scheduling another fix around my birthday next month, and I already can’t wait for it to arrive!
