Today, I got my first Stitch Fix. If you’re unaware, Stitch Fix is a subscription box that’s basically like having a long distance personal stylist. For $20 a month, your stylist “shops” for you, sending you a curated collection of clothing that supposedly caters to your personal taste. You then have the option to try on the clothing and purchase it. If you make a purchase, your $20 styling fee goes towards that purchase. If you purchase the whole box, you get a discount.
Before you are sent a Stitch Fix box, you fill out your online style profile. This includes questions about what kinds of events you regularly attend (not many, as a new mom), along with questions about what you’d prefer to get in your box. I don’t wear much jewelry, so I said I would prefer not to get jewelry, although I was open to other accessories like scarves and shoes.
My style is pretty hard to pin down, so I was apprehensive about what the stylist would send. I indicated that my birthday was coming up, along with some Christmas parties, so some slightly more formal outfits would be nice. However, I am always looking for everyday wardrobe staples, so I asked for those too.
I know. I’m all over the place.
The first piece I pulled out of my Stitch Fix box was this patterned asymmetrical dress. I love big, bold patterns (as evidenced by my undying love for LuLaRoe everything) so I was really excited about this piece.
Unfortunately, the ruching and the asymmetrical hem didn’t work wonders for my post-baby body, so this was my least favorite piece.
The second piece I pulled out of the box was this beautiful exposed zipper dress, which features an open back and keyholes on the sides. It’s a dark navy blue, which looks black except in direct light. This is exactly what I was thinking of when I asked for holiday wear!
The only downside to this dress is that it is slightly too big. This is my fault, because I’m not entirely sure of my post-baby size or body shape— which has been fluctuating wildly.
This dress is my second favorite piece.
This was the third item from the box. This gray ponte dress is a great staple. I think this might’ve been my mom’s favorite out of the box, and it was very flattering. The grey is great for winter, too.
Downside wise, it’s slightly too big for me. Also, the basicness of this dress means it needs to be accessorized, and I own very few accessories thanks to my penchant for bold patterns.
Finally, we have this casual outfit consisting of skinny jeans and an embellished top. I saved it for last because I rarely, if ever, wear jeans. I wasn’t really expecting to like this. However, these jeans are the softest jeans I’ve ever put on.
The top is cute, and I like the embellishment. The metallic tones are perfect for holidays, and can be dressed up or down. The top is more than I generally spend on tops, coming in at $58.
The jeans are $78 dollars. Jeans are more of an investment piece to me than a top, because you can wear them with so many different tops.
Overall, I think my stylist did a good job keeping my style and body type in mind while making my Stitch Fix box. Stitch Fix seems like a great way to shake up your style, and perfect for busy professionals who don’t like trying to put a look together by themselves.
I haven’t decided what I’ll be keeping yet, but I’ll only be keeping one outfit, so feel free to weigh in on what you like best!
