It's always exciting to me to get a box of clothes in the mail that have been picked out with my taste in mind - I like a classic, fitted look that's trendy, but long-lasting. The older I get the more I want to buy good, quality pieces that will last instead of one-season throw away pieces.
Every box comes neatly packed with a style card that shows you ideas for how to wear each piece they have sent you.
I really enjoy the style card because it can easily show you how versatile one piece might with clothes you already have in your closet. Now let's get to the pieces!
Primrose Sheath Dress by Kut From the Kloth - $88
Kut From the Klouth has some great pieces and this sheath dress is a great staple! It was light and very comfortable.
Status: Sent Back. In the end, as much as I loved this dress I sent it back because the key hole in the front was a little too low for me. Everything about it I loved... (except not loving the bra lines you can see in the photos though. Sorry!)
I LOVE this skirt! It was the right size, had patterns on the bottom, and was flatter from the bum area. Let's be real, when you got a bum you have to make sure it looks good in what you're wearing.
The only thing I have to do is find new nude shoes to wear with them. The shoes I am wearing in the photo are mine - but it's like they've expanded because they are too big for me now.
Shenley Mesh Detail Knit Tank by Loveappella - $48
I LOVED this top. It fit perfectly and had a really nice detail at the top of the shirt. This tank would have also been great for layering if it ever decides to cool down in Arkansas.
Status: Sent Back & regretting it. When it came time for me to check out on Sitch Fix I decided to send it back because the price was making me think twice. However, I do wish I had kept this top. It was soft and fitted.
Alliyah Button Down Top by Mavi - $68
I LOVE these types of shirts, they are light, but build-able in a way that you can throw on a jacket, or a vest, or a scarf and are fashionable. I can roll the sleeves up and wear with shorts, or roll down and layer it with other things. The only thing I wish I had done differently in this photo is put on lipstick. and blush. and maybe makeup.
Status: Kept! And it's currently hanging up in my closet.
Lyd Mesh Neckline Knit Top by Pixley - $58
Back is one of my favorite colors to wear. I was a little unsure about this top when I pulled it out of the box but once I tried it on I knew it wasn't right for me. The gathered material in the front would be forgiving, but the mesh at the top made it feel too adolescent for me. I liked the idea - but it wasn't right for my body.
Status: Sent Back
3 Stitch Fix Tips for Getting The Perfect Box
1. Create a Pinterest board that you use in your profile. You can see my style board here - and you can see the official Stitch Fix board here. I like to pin items that I see directly from the Stitch Fix boards because that means you will be more likely to receive those pieces.
2. Be honest in your style comment box A tip I learned is to tell your stylist what's going on in your life and what exactly you are looking for in terms of clothes. That's going to help them find the right pieces for you. Also, if you change your comment box every new fix, those other comments won't be seen by the stylist again.
3. Try on the pieces a couple of times with different pants/etc before you makeup your mind You can easily pull a piece of clothing out of a box and say 'no' based on what you see. That's not fair to you or to the clothing. I suggest that you try on each piece and see how you would wear it, it might show you that you really like the piece. Maybe you try it on and still isn't a fit for you - at least you will know and can send it back with no regrets.
Bonus Tip: Do Stitch Fix with a friend and get your boxes delivered around the same date. Just because you didn't like/want a top/dress/pant in your box, doesn't mean that you friend may not want it and vis versa. I got a GREAT jack and I love so much from one of my friend's boxes and she got a great skirt that she loved from one of mine. It makes the process more fun and get everyone involved! Have a girls night Stitch Fix try-on party!
