May 2015 Stitch Fix Review MY FIRST FIX

IMG_20150514_160057 It seems like I’ve heard about Stitch Fix for years.  And then one day, a few weeks ago, I stood in front of my wardrobe and felt sad.  “The Living Room” community will be launching in a month and we were doing promotional photos.  I had a closet full of nothing to wear.  Nothing that spoke to who I was and what I am about.  I went shopping.  I shopped for hours and hated it.  Yes, I left with an outfit I truly loved but I spent more than I’d care to admit and it took too much time.

Enter STITCH FIX! That night I remembered Stitch Fix and decided that I would give it a try.  I got on the list and have waited patiently for my first Fix.

Stitch Fix is a Personal Styling Service.  They ask you some questions about your style, your sizing, and your preferences.  They even ask you to create an optional pinterest board–here’s mine–so that they can get an idea of your style.  They assign you a stylist who selects five items just for you: your body, your taste.  You pay a $20.00 styling fee that is then credited toward any item you purchase.  When it finally does come- it comes adorably packaged and wrapped in tissue.  Included in the box are your fashion items, a note from your stylist, style cards suggesting how to style the pieces that were selected for you and a shipping pre-paid return envelope.  You have 3 business days to choose what you like and return what you don’t.  Easy Peasy.

I liked all 5 of my items.  I kept two.  One was returned because I have something similar.  One was returned because I didn’t LOVE it and the other was returned because I couldn’t make it work with my religious commitments (read: LDS Temple Garments).  Try as I might, it didn’t look right with a tee shirt under or jacket over.  That one was a heart-breaker to send back.  The two items I kept are gorgeous.  A fabulous blazer in Navy, which I am in love with right now.  It is the “Benson 3/4 Ruched Sleeve Blazer” by 41 Hawthorne.  I also kept the “Briar Printed Maxi Dress” by Papermoon.  I love this one.  It can be dressed up or down and really emphasizes my little waist while minimizing my booty.

Here’s the awesome dress I kept:
