A Stitch Fix Win

So most of you guys have been reading the blog long enough to know that I have a monthly subscription to a personal online styling service, Stitchfix!

I love what this service offers.  For those unfamiliar with it, you go to their website, fill out a very detailed style profile, and for a 20$ fee they have a stylist pick 5 items to ship to you at home.  Four of the items are clothing, while one may or may not be jewelry/accessory.  Once your box arrives you get to try on your items in the comfort of your home to decide which items will work for you.  Once your choices are made you go online to check off the items you are keeping, place the items to return in a pre-paid shipping bag, and drop it off.  That simple!  Oh and your 20$ styling fee?……it comes off of the final price of your invoice so you really do not loose money!

I have raved about my love for the service several times already.  This month was great!  It is the first box from the service in which I have kept all five items – giving me the chance to use my savings for purchasing the entire box 🙂

I usually always keep the jewelty item that is sent in the box.  I mean let’s be honest, what woman doesn’t like jewelry??  Such a cute and different bracelet.

I was excited to see this top in my fix.  Most of the items I get are usually a little on the “dressier” side.  I was excited to see a more casual piece this month.

I wasn’t sure when I first saw this shirt if I would like it or not.  Of course once I tried it on it was too adorable.  I love the “lace” detail on the top/back.

This one by far was my favorite item in the box.  I love flowing type tops, and I also love things that are different colors.

This is the one item that I was going to return at first.  The only reason for that was because it was a little too tight on me.  I also know that is because of the weight/inches gained in the past several months, but who wants to spend money on something they aren’t comfortable in?  The only reason I kept it was because sending it back would only save me like 8$$!!  You get a percentage off for keeping all items in the box, so returning this skirt voids the discount making the totally difference on eight bucks.  So I decided to keep it for 8$, and I am sure once my body gets back on track it will fit fine.  It is an awesome skirt after all!

I really loved this pattern on this skirt.  It is totally different than anything that I would normally buy for myself.  Which is one of the main reasons that I love the service.  All of the items I have kept from them are things that I wouldn’t have even tried on much less purchased has I been shopping in a store.  That and they are so different from most things you can find in stores 🙂

This one was a total win!!!

My Very First Stitch Fix Fail….

Do you guys remember a few weeks ago when I shared with you my love for Stitch Fix? I am sure you do!

I have been using the service for about five months now, and I am totally in love with it.

Sadly this months fix was the first fail for me 😦

It wasn't because I didn't like the items in the box. Oh no! I was in love with the colors and patterns when I opened it. I just wasn't in love with the cut and fit of them…..,,,

Item número uno…..a very pretty skirt. I really loved the color of this skirt. What I didn't like – that it was a high waist skirt. I do not like anything with a high waist. Mainly because of my ridiculous “baby bump” that I still carry around, but also I must confess that I have a piercing which makes items with a high waist uncomfortable when sitting.

Up next was a very cute ikat print dress. It was a wrap dress, I hate wrap dresses :(. I really loved the colors/pattern, but I usually never buy anything that requires it to be tied around me. I will rock a belt with the best of them, but something that ties in a bow…..no thanks!

Then there was the maxi dress. Same story….awesome chevron print, beautiful colors, horrible cut. The dress was way to big for me, looked like a maternity dress (no offense to my expecting mothers), and was just really unflattering…..see for yourself!

Yep had to wear shirt under it……entire side of bra was showing!

I even tried belting it, and that didn't work either.

Now this little gem was my absolute favorite thing in the box! Until I put it on that is. While it,looks really cute the cut around the arms was just horrible, and if I raised my arms the shirt didn't fail back into place when they were lowered. I had to tug it back down and ain't nobody got time for that!!

The necklace was the only thing in the box that fit right, and in order to not lose my 20$ styling fee I kept it. Normally this little cutie would have went back due to price…..uh…..42$$. Now I do not mind spending money on jewelry, but I would have never purchased this on my own for that price. Since it was the only item in the box that worked it is what I kept.

So out of five boxes this is the first that didn't have any items to fit/keep. I say that is not too bad, but here is looking forward to a better box next time!!

p.s. if you would like to try the service for yourself I would appreciate it if you would use my referral code listed below, thanks so much!!

Confessions

Yep, it's that time again! Time for me to make a confession. I have been holding out on some great things!

Now I am not going to put all of them in one post…..no I will break them into two different posts. Because you know they each have a need for their own!

While imam normally very good at sharing things that are important to me, things that I love, and just random tidbits of info Here, I have fallen slightly behind.

I am in love with some new things lately. Now many of you will know about the first topic at hand. Stitch Fix!!!

Many of you have probably heard of this company by now, it is all over the blog world, but for those of of hat haven't let me share!

Stitch Fix is a personal styling service that delivers a curated box of accessibly priced items directly to doors across the United States. Stitch Fix hand picks pieces for each client, to ultimately help them look and feel their best.

So the basics are you join the site, fill out an extensive style profile, and the company will ship clothing items and accessories straight to your doorstep. Now there is a “styling fee” of 20$ that is charged to your card, but the money will be deducted from the total price of the items you decide to keep. Which of course means that I always keep a least be item…..who am I kidding I keep more than one! The items you do not want is placed in a prepaid bag for you to return to the company. Then you simply go online, check off if you are keeping/returning items, the reason why, and any additional comments you want to leave. Then you check out your final purchase. You can choose to have a monthly box shipped to you, or you can go online and schedule a fox as you want them!!

Here are items I have kept so far………..

 

 

 

They even include a style card with each item of suggested ways to wear the items……

So go,check out the website at http://www.stitchfix.com for more info. I promise you will not be disappointed.

P.S……. Oh and for my lovely friends that read, if you decide to try the service you can use the following code which gives me a referral credit 🙂
