First world problems people. While I like the items I chose, after looking back I could have done a little better but you know what they say, better luck next time. Without further ado, I present you my long and overdue Stitch Fix reveal.
Real quick before we begin here are a few words about Stitch Fix and how it all works if you haven't read this the 54 other times I've wrote about it ;)
1. You start by filling out your style profile - you will complete all sorts of questions on sizing, pricing, preferences, colors, etc. You can also write notes about likes/dislikes. Make sure to link your fashion board on Pinterest so your stylist can see what you like!
2. Order your first fix! Your card will be charged a $20 styling fee however, if you keep any item [one or more] you will be credited back the $20. Because of this I always recommend keeping at least one item or you are essentially giving away $20 for nothing in return. You will receive 5 items [made up of clothing, jewelry, and handbags, whatever you prefer]. I personally only want clothing in my fix so I just always let my stylist know!
3. Decide what you want to keep and what you want to send back [in a postage paid envelope]! You have 3 business days to do so - use this time to try everything on, see what you have in your closet that pairs well with it and don't be afraid to say yes to something that you wouldn't normally. That's what makes Stitch Fix so fun! If you keep all 5 items you will receive 25% off your entire fix, winning!
It should be noted that while I have chosen to receive monthly fixes, this is in no way a subscription service and you are able to decide when you want another fix, whether that be in 6 months or 2 years from your first fix! As always, if you ever have any questions feel free to leave them in the comments section below. Okay, here we go!
1. Lusso Cashmere Betsee Color Block Pullover - $148 - Small - Kept
So here's where my biggest mistake may have been made. While yes, it's cashmere, it's still $148. In my mad dash of checking out I selected keep and kept going. Granted, I love the sweater, but that price is a little salty for my budget. However, it has zippers so we'll consider it a win still. So here we have it, the cashmere sweater that I will never dry clean and probably ruin soon. But at least for two weeks of my life I will have owned a legit nice cashmere sweater.
2. RD Style Aja Knit Dress - $78 - Small - Returned
When I originally put this dress on I was sure that I had my head through a wrong hole or something. However, it turns out this is the correct way of wearing it and now that I see it, I kinda love it. The only downside to this dress was the 15 extra pounds I've put on which made for some pretty heavy duty sucking in. One can only hold their breath for so long, meaning it was either my life or this dress. I chose my life, mostly just so I could share this fix with you. You're welcome.
3. Steven Cecilya Peep Toe Bootie - $129 - Returned
4. Skies Are Blue Sorel Cutout Detail Blouse - Small - $54 - Returned
The real reason I didn't keep this fun top? It essentially requires a strapless bra due to the cutout detail. Now, if it was summer I probably wouldn't have thought too much about this as I am used to wearing strapless bras then [this one is my favorite, FYI] however, being that it's the dead of winter and I haven't put one of those on in several months I thought oh haiiiiiiiiiiiiil no. Fun top though, that's a fact jack.
5. Tart Capella Collarless Textured Faux Leather Trim Blazer - Small - $98 - Kept
And last but not least, the "I am always a sucker for you" item - a blazer. I can't seem to have enough. Maybe because I feel like I don't actually have enough and always wear the same black one for work and play [hint: it's this one]. I loved that this had some fun and unique detail to it with the pattern and leather touches. Granted, I feel slightly Michael Jackson-ish in it, but who hasn't wanted to be MJ at one point in their lives?
And that my friends, summarizes my 55th fix. The best part? My 56th arrives in just seven short days. Have you jumped on the Stitch Fix bandwagon yet?
