First Stitch Fix Review

I received my first Stitch Fix today and was so excited to bust open the box!

The postman left my box in the pouring rain…

I opened the box to find two bundles of clothes!!  The first bundle had an anorak jacket that I totally fell in love with right away and I totally don’t need since I already have two… “Market & Spruce – Angelo Cargo Anorak Jacket”

That polka dot lining though…😍

The price was a little steep but after I put it on I knew I couldn’t send it back…  Plus you do get $20 off if you keep at least one item…

The second bundle had the four remaining items in it.  First up was a top “Le Lis – Brinan Mixed Print Knit Top”:

I’m not sure what is going on with this top but the colors are awful, and the polka dot pocket/ hem line just add insult to injury.  I tried it on just to see if maybe I wasn’t giving it a fair chance and it was baggy and totally unflattering.  Danny immediately chimed in saying he hated it… back to Stitch Fix that goes 😞

The next item was a pair of dark red skinny jeans/jeggings “Just Black – Blake Scissor Cut Hem Skinny Jean”:

These I wasn’t too sure about right out of the box, but I tried them on and Danny loved them the most out of everything.  They were really comfortable but I was on the fence…  until I saw the price of $88 😱  To me, pants of this quality (although cute and comfy) are essentially leggings with pockets and should not cost $88.  However, if I had fallen in love with everything in the box and got the 25% discount then I probably would have kept these.

Next up was a black sweater “BRIXON IVY – Darla Lace Asymmetric Hem Sweater”:

This sweater was something I liked in the box but I worried it might not be flattering on.  I was totally wrong! I’m normally not one to wear a lot of black but I fell in love with the fit of this sweater.  It’s really flattering and I love the mixture of textures and the shape of the front with the little lace piece!

Last but not least was a polka dot sweater “41Hawthorn – Gideon Polka Dot Sweater”

Out of the box I really liked this sweater, it was really well made and looked like it would fit well.  Unfortunately, as soon as I tried it on I realized it’s just not a style I would ever wear.  To me it fit very nicely, but would make more sense if I worked in a business casual environment.  It would be perfect over a blouse with slacks/dress pants.  Daniel was not a fan either, so back it goes.

Recap:

2/5 items kept – Anorak jacket and black sweater.

Overall, I had a really good first Stitch Fix experience.  The clothes are a little more pricey than I normally look to spend, but it’s fun getting a little out of my comfort zone trying some items on I wouldn’t otherwise.  Also, I love how easy it is to just send what I don’t want back.

I’ve already set up my next month’s Stitch Fix (November 19th) and have written a note to my stylist with what I’m looking to add more of in my closet.  We shall see if they follow my note or if they go rogue!
