Stitch Fix #3

Last week, the morning before I left for my trip back to Cincinnati, I received an email alerting me that my Stitch Fix had been delivered.  I wasn't expecting it until the following day when I'd be on the other side of America, and I didn't have time to stop home after work so I did the only logical thing, I ran home on my lunch break.  Because I couldn't possibly wait until I returned home from my trip, that would be absurd.  I didn't even get my door unlocked before I had the box open.  When I saw that they had found my beloved jeans, I practically shimmied out of my skirt right there on our porch.

If you live under a rock have no idea what I'm talking about, here's the gist:

1. Go to and create your style profile by answering some questions about your wardrobe preferences
2. Schedule a fix!  This can be as frequent (or infrequent) as you would like,  I get mine once a month.
3. Your fix arrives and you try everything on in the comfort of your own home with clothes you already have in your closet.
4. You are charged $20 styling fee for each fix, however, if you keep anything from your box, that $20 is automatically applied to your purchase.
5. You have 3 days to mail anything you don’t want back to Stitch Fix in a pre-paid shipping envelope. If you keep all 5 items from your fix, you get a 25% discount.

This is what my fix included this month (I apologize in advance for the crappy photos in my messy bedroom, I literally had like 5 minutes to try everything on and get my butt back to work.  I promise to give my fix proper attention next month and take some decent photos):

Item #1:  Under Skies, Breena Floral Print Sleeveless Blouse {Adorable, fit great, and it's outside my comfort zone/something I would never have picked out at the store, exactly what I look for in my box each month.  KEEP}
Item #2: Just Black, Adora Skinny Jean  {I had these in my 1st fix, fell in love with them, kept them, and then they were stolen after I'd only worn them once!  I was so bummed.  I literally squealed with delight when I saw them again in this fix!  This company is great at listening to your feedback and they truly try to give you exactly what you ask for.  I've been more than blown away by the customer service at Stitch Fix!   KEEP}

Item #3: Le Sample, Kahlo Embroidered Racerback Tank {Meh.  It fit great, had an interesting shape/cut (it's hard to tell in this photo but it's longer on the sides and shorter in the front/back), and was super comfy but I really didn't like the color combo...see the close up photo below.  RETURN}

I'm sorry, I just can't get behind the olive/neon combo.  If the stripes were black or grey, I might have kept it.

Item #4:  41Hawthorn, Harriet Aztec Print Fit and Flare Dress  {When I saw this in the box, I thought it was going to be a keep but the fit was just ok.  It's cute but nothing special.  RETURN}

Item #5:  Zad, Andover Enamel Floral Bib Necklace {I'm not a fan of pastel's or flower shaped jewelry so this was a no brainer for me. RETURN}

Like I said above.  I have been blown away by this company.  They read my blog posts (HI!) and appropriately stalk the Pinterest page I linked in my profile where I pin all the clothes I'd like to have in my closet to gather intel about me and my style and I can see the results in each fix.  If you haven't joined this rapidly growing company, I highly recommend you do so (and I'd appreciate it if you use the link I provided in this post so I will earn a referral credit!),

That first top is adorable!

Very cute! I really like the floral top and I don't really mind the olive/neon combo. Takes some getting used to but it's alright. I may have to try this!

I like that top, which you obviously do too since I've seen you wearing it (just call me your social media stalker). I like the dress too, but you are right, it's nothing special.

Totally love your keepers! And my heart broke a little with you over the olive/neon one. I wanted the stripes to be black too :(

Carrie said...

I really love the first top! And I actually love the colors of the racerback tank, too!

I love the dress. I have it on my Stitchfix board. It looked great on you too! I am loving this company as well; however, we haven't quite gotten on the same page regarding my style. I have high hopes for my 3rd box though.
