Every once in a while you learn about something and your reaction is “how did I not know about this before now?!!?!?!?!?!?” Your whole world opens up and you wonder how you lived without this new discovery for so long.
That is how I feel about Stitch Fix. It’s pretty much the best concept in the world: I sit on my couch and someone shops for me and then sends the clothes to my house. And then I decide what I want to keep and ship back everything else in a prepaid envelope. It’s fantastic and I may never shop the old fashioned way again. Oh who am I kidding? Yes I will, but it’s still awesome. And I think y’all should try it and if you’re so inclined, you should use my referral link.
As hopefully a little incentive to try it out yourself, here’s a peek inside my first Fix. I’ll do this every month, but maybe I’ll actually wear the clothes next time. I was far too “weekend comfy” to take well lit and flattering photos this time around.
Item #1: Faya Sleeveless Keyhole Fit & Flare Dress. This was actually the only item I sent back. The style was adorable and the color is one that I love, but the fit was just a little off. The keyhole was placed way too low to wear to work and the price was a little too high for me to justify it as a special occasion only dress.
Item #2: Moni Stud Detailed 3/4 Sleeve Blouse. I totally would have picked this out myself. It’s loose fitting and very stylish, making it the perfect top for skinny jeans Friday (or skinny jeans Monday if we’re being completely honest).
Item #3: Corinna Striped Dolman Top. I’d asked for some more stylish casual clothes, especially for the cooler months so this top was an immediate hit with me. It’s super soft and is so much nicer than my normal weekend attire of gym shorts and t-shirts. I actually wore this Sunday night to the Darius Rucker show and would like roughly 8 more in a variety of colors.
Item #4: Betty Chevron Infinity Scarf. I took this out of the box and immediately placed it in the keep pile. Scarves are winter wardrobe staples for me and I am always looking for neutral ones to wear on days that I go with a brighter shirt or pants. Plus it’s a chevron pattern, something I love, but don’t have the courage to wear as anything more than an accessory.
Item #5: Emer High Waisted Cropped Trouser. I’ll be honest, I was pretty anti-these pants when I took them out of the box. But after wearing them around the house for a while and getting A’s enthusiastic approval, I decided to keep them. The photo doesn’t really do the color justice, but they are a really gorgeous blue which is a color I don’t wear often. I have a lot of longer blouses that will work well with these. Plus add in some nude flats and a fun necklace? Adorbs.
After such a successful first round, I can’t wait to see what comes in my next Fix!
