Shortly before we headed out of town for our wedding, I received my latest Stitch Fix. I scheduled one to arrive right before all of the chaos to give me something else to focus on and look forward to. Having that box arrive on my doorstep is always such a treat!
If you aren’t familiar with Stitch Fix, it’s an online styling service that allows you to fill out a profile with your style preferences. A stylist then uses that information to pick out five hand-selected items to send your way — a box full of clothing and accessories. You pay a $20 styling fee, which can then be applied to any of the items from you fix that you decide to keep.
In this fix, I received a dress, a blouse, a pair of pants, a skirt and a cotton shirt. I loved the majority of the items, which always makes it tempting to keep the entire box — you get a discount if you do!
By far my favorite item in my fix was the polka dot skirt. It was flattering and fits my style perfectly. It’s also versatile — worn with a jean jacket it works as a great, casual outfit. But, dressed up with a blouse it’s perfect for work or a fancier night out. This is the one item from my fix I ended up keeping.
I wasn’t a fan of the cotton, lace t-shirt my stylist suggested wearing with the skirt. The high neckline makes my short torso appear even shorter. And, the front of the top was on the shorter side, which wasn’t flattering when the shirt was untucked.
The next item in my fix was an adorable coral dress. The dress was super comfortable, but a little tight in the chest for me. Because the fit wasn’t quite right, the dress had to go back.
I loved the final two items in my fix, mainly because they were a slight departure from my normal style: a grey blouse and black ankle pants (they ended up being the length of normal pants on me because of my height). I was very tempted to keep both items, but with the wedding right around the corner at the time, I couldn’t justify the expense — especially with the pants being $98.
Overall, I was very happy with my fix. I love that the service helps me step outside of my comfort zone a bit and try clothes on I normally wouldn’t pick off the rack. Now that the wedding is over and the honeymoon is paid for, I’m excited to schedule another fix sometime soon!
