Earlier this spring, I received my first Stitch Fix. I liked four of the five items that I was sent, and you can read more about my first fix here. I originally created a Stitch Fix account because I was in a style rut and thought it might be a good way to incorporate a few inexpensive trendier items into my everyday wardrobe, and it just seemed fun. After I was surprisingly pleased with my first fix, I signed up to automatically receive one quarterly, which seemed reasonable.
I didn't document my summer fix, but I found a new coral red tank top that looks great alone and is perfect for dates or nights out with friends. I've worn it with white jeans and tucked into a skirt. It also looks good under a blazer, so I've worn it to work as well. Other than the tank, I didn't love the other items in my summer fix, and for the most part, the items were priced higher than I requested in my preferences.
Just in time for early fall, my last fix was waiting on my doorstep when I arrived home from the lake this weekend. Since it has been in the 80s and 90s here, I've resisted purchasing new fall clothes but been really tempted by all of the new collections in stores. I was practically bursting with excitement when I ripped open the box and saw a classic red and navy plaid peeking through.
I don't claim to be a fashionista, but I just wasn't impressed with what I received. I was hoping to add a few trendier pieces that I could fit into my normally classic wardrobe, but I thought most of the items reflected trends that were at their height a couple years ago. I don't think my stylist really paid attention to my preferences or looked closely at my Pinterest board that I linked to my account. I may give it another whirl at some point, but I think I'll be taking a break from Stitch Fix for now.
