My First Stitch Fix

After months of going back and forth on whether I should order a Stitch Fix box, I finally did so this month! I went back and forth because I usually don’t spend a lot on my clothing and nice clothes tend to fit me weirdly. I did lose some weight since I first thought about getting a Stitch Fix box, so I decided it was time. I liked the idea of choosing one item from the box to keep, unless there was more than one item that I loved! The way Stitch Fix works is that you fill out a style profile, including your tastes and sizes, and you pay a $20 styling fee when you request your box. You can also leave detailed notes on what you are looking for. Your stylist sends you your 5 pieces, along with ideas on how to style them. Your styling fee is applied to whatever you purchase from your box, so you definitely want to keep something so you don’t lose that fee!

In my note to my stylist, I mentioned that I have a few holidays coming up for which I will need to dress nicely. My stylist, Rachel, made a note of this and enclosed a top, a skirt, 2 dresses, and a jacket. The items could be paired together or on their own.


The first item I tried on was the Renee C Leena Printed Skirt. This skirt is definitely my style. It was long enough, the colors can match with many things, and it was comfortable!

As Rachel mentioned in her note, the Skies Are Blue Kirt Scallop Trim Lace Blouse paired nicely with the skirt. I really liked this top. The style and fit worked for me, aside for possibly the tie, which I didn’t love. I also didn’t love the price tag, which was a little steep for me.

I also very rarely wear sleeveless shirts without something over them, so I added the Lila Ryan Avianna Cropped Denim Jacket to the outfit. This makes the look a little more casual, in my opinion. I already own a denim jacket and I knew that I would not be keeping this one. It was also slightly too big for me, especially in the sleeve length.



Next, I tried on the THML Roonie Embroidered Dress. At first glance, I really liked this dress, especially the embroidery. I wasn’t a fan of the neckline though, so much so that I didn’t even take a picture of it without the denim jacket layered on top! The dress was also a bit too short for my liking.



Finally, the 41Hawthorn Renesme Geo Cube Jersey Faux Wrap Dress was a style I really liked. I wanted it to work so badly, but unfortunately it was too tight across my extra large sized chest. I even took a close up photo to remind myself why it didn’t work for me.


So, if you didn’t guess, I decided to keep the Leena Printed Skirt! If I had unlimited money, I likely would have also kept the Kirt Scallop Trim Lace Blouse as well. What do you think of my box and the item that I kept?
