I’ve been super excited to try Stitch Fix and when I saw that box on my front porch I was giddy. Then I remembered that I was going to have to stand in front of my camera to show off these clothes, and boy, do I hope they fit!
I’ve been pretty reluctant to try this service because you really have no idea what the price is going to be, nor do you know if you are going to like the stuff you get sent. But I love the idea of someone picking out clothes for me and getting to try them on in the comfort of my own home.
When I opened the box I was excited and nervous when I saw the colors, patterns and fabrics! I mostly wear cotton tank tops and yoga pants, basically 7 days a week, unless I need to be wearing something nicer! Date nights typically consist of leggings and a top of some sort. And while I’ve wanted to try “skinny jeans” I never have.
So here is what I got.
Lannie Striped Maxi Skirt
I love this skirt. I saw it when Mandy from A Sorta Fairytale got it in her box a few weeks ago and I immediately pinned it on my clothes board on Pinterest with a note to the Stitch Fix Gods so they knew I wanted it. So I was very excited. It is so comfortable but I can tell you that I have never spent that much money on a skirt before and that freaked me out a little. But I’m keeping it!
Cranston Cross- Front Racerback Blouse and Adora Ankle Length Colored Skinny Jean
When I first pulled this top out of the box I was in love. I have no idea when I would wear it unless I wore it on every date night that Travis and I have. But then I tried it on and the material felt weird and it was bulky in my belly and believe me, when I already have enough bulk in the belly, I don’t want a top to add more! Plus, it had a slit in the front and it made me feel uncomfortable. So, it’s going back!
Here is a view of the back- That was my favorite part.
I’ve wanted to try skinny jeans but the closest I’ve gotten is a pair of leggings that look like jeans. But I thought these were cute and I was excited to try them on. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m not super tall. I’m barely 5’4″ and I always have trouble finding jeans that fit my legs. If I get a normal inseam they are too long, and petite length are too short. These were just too long and I don’t want to buy a pair of jeans that expensive and then have to hem them! So they are going back!
Marcia Lace Panel Detail Tank
I really love the color of this top. And another thing I really like about it is that I would have never picked it out for myself. That is part of the fun with Stitch Fix is getting clothes you love, that you might not have picked out for yourself in the store. But it was super tight across my chest and then very flowing everywhere else. Not to mention the price tag!!! So it is going back!
Izzie Asymmetrical Button Front Cotton Cardigan
When I pulled this out of the box I immediately loved it. I was thinking of what I could wear it with, and when I would wear it! Here in eastern Washington we have been sitting in the mid 90’s for the past week+ and it doesn’t appear to be going down anytime soon! (Believe me, I’m not complaining! I love the heat!) But when am I going to wear a cardigan? Then I tried it on and as much as I loved it, and wanted it, it was a little too snug across my belly and the buttons pulled leaving a gap in between buttons…. So unfortunately, it’s going back!
So out of my 5 items, the only thing I am keeping is the maxi skirt, which I will probably live in for the rest of the Summer!
Lastly, I have to say this about the price tag. Everything in my Stitch Fix ranged from $38-$78 and I about gasped when I saw that! Especially considering I have my fixes set for the “cheapy cheap” setting. Other than a coat that I bought in high school and the only pair of Nike’s I ever bought years ago (and still have!) I’ve never paid that much per item of clothing and I was a little shocked. While I love seeing peoples fixes, I’m not 100% sold on Stitch Fix unless they come up with a cheaper price range.
Have you tried Stitch Fix? What do you think about my items? And what do you think about the prices?
