One of my favorite things about living in Kentucky is the fact that we have four distinct seasons, and I’m giddy at the start of each new season. When the weather changes, I start to long for wardrobe changes as well, and I’ve been known to go on some major shopping sprees around this time of year.
After talking to some friends who use Stitch Fix, I decided to give it a try. I’m always skeptical of subscription services until I’ve talked to a few people who’ve actually tried it, but I heard some pretty great things about Stitch Fix. On one of the first warm days when I started online shopping, I decided against purchasing yet another navy spring dress and pair of nude flats and headed to Stitch Fix to set up a profile. I figured that it could help me try a few new items that I wouldn’t normally pick up. Also, knowing that my package was arriving in a couple weeks definitely helped curb my desire to fill my shopping cart.
Setting up a profile was really easy. I liked that I could share which cuts of clothing are most flattering for my body and what I’m comfortable wearing. I also appreciated that there are numerous opportunities to share with your stylist what styles, colors, and types of clothing you prefer and link Pinterest boards to your profile. Fingers crossed that I can put together some outfits half as cute as my Pinterest “Style” board.
So here it goes... my first experience with Stitch Fix.
- Navy Jacket - In my note to my stylist, I specifically requested a spring jacket. I would definitely keep this jacket except I already have one that’s almost identical. I guess my stylist was just too good.
Striped Tee - I wanted to like this shirt because it is really comfy, and I liked the cut. However, I didn’t love the color on me. Also, this looks like something I would pick up on sale at Gap or Target, and I thought the $48 price tag was a little steep for this tee.
Jeans - I was shocked that these fit really well and were really comfortable! I always struggle to find pants and jeans that fit well. However, the wash on these jeans weren't my favorite, so they went back.
Pink Shirt - This was a hit! I paired it with white cropped jeans and wore it to a casual Easter brunch this weekend, and I think it is work appropriate as well as something I can wear to a to happy hour or dinner with girlfriends. I probably wouldn’t have picked this if I saw it in a store, but I really like it!
Pencil Skirt - Another hit! I wear lots of navy, so I have plenty of tops and accessories that coordinate well with this skirt. I liked the polka dots for a little bit of flair. I already wore this piece too, and I paired it with a mint green top and navy Kendra Scott Rayne necklace for work.
