My New Obsession.... Stitch Fix!

***Disclaimer:  This post is not sponsored by Stitch Fix and I am not affiliated with them in any way. I just really love this concept, the company and the fun box on my doorstep when I schedule it to appear!***

In February, I read this blog post and it caught my attention immediately.  I HAD to try it!!

And now I'm obsessed.  Stitch Fix is awesome!!  And I can't wait until my next fix! :)

So before I go into what I got in my first fix, I'll back up and give a quick explanation of what it is from the Stitch Fix website:

You sign up and wait to be accepted. I waited a little over two weeks... no biggie.  Totally worth the wait!! :)

Once you are accepted, they send you a link where you fill out a style profile with fun questions like this:

It covers all kinds of info from sizes to preferences.  You can also tell them anything you like, so I included a note to avoid coral colors (not a flattering color with my skin tone) and that I was looking for weekend casual wear.

Once you complete the profile, you schedule your fix.  I scheduled mine quickly... what can I say, patience isn't my strong suit!  So a week later, my box showed up!!

I can't explain how exciting it was.  Better than Christmas!  A box of clothes that are my size (in theory) and are stylish (I hope!)... I ripped that box open as fast as I could.... and I was not disappointed. :)

I got to try on everything with my existing wardrobe, in my closet, NO RUSH.  No impulse purchases.  I actually slept on my decision.  It gave me time to get some friends' opinions via text message and get my husband's opinion too.  Each item came with a styling card which I found good because it made me think about what I already had I could use each piece with if I bought it.

The price point?  It wasn't bad.  Look, this isn't the GAP, Target or Old Navy.  You won't be getting a $5 tank top with a coupon! ;) It's on par with my normal price point at Ann Taylor Loft, Banana Republic, White House Black Market, Macys, so I'm comfortable with it.  That said, I sent an item back due to price, but it fit perfectly and I really liked it... but more on that in a minute.

So down to business.... here's what came in the box:

I kept the blue tulip print, the royal blue dolman top, and the necklace.  The white cardigan fit perfectly, but I couldn't justify the price considering I already have several like it in my closet.  The red tank top with the white cardigan is mine. :)

There was also a striped jersey/denim tank that was horrible on me... didn't like the fit or the combo of fabrics.  Total miss, but I have to give credit for sticking to the request I made for weekend casual clothes.

Verdict overall?  I'M OBSESSED.  Addicted.  In love. ♥ 

I already scheduled my next fix and I cannot wait!!

If you have any questions, please ask in the comments or send me an email.

Have a great weekend!! :)

  1. That sounds SO cool! Unfortunately, even the $5 tank top with coupon is something I have to carefully consider these days. Perhaps someday I'll have a clothes budget again!


Thanks for stopping by and leaving me some love! I truly appreciate it and will return the love whenever I can! Due to spam, all comments are moderated, so it will show up as soon as I have a chance to see it! :)
