January Stitch Fix Review (Stitch Fix #1)

Have you guys tried Stitch Fix yet?!?! I’m beginning to think that it is a fabulous idea!

I know this is outside of my normal fitness/running blogging, but hey – its my blog, and I want to blog about my awesome clothes!  I’m going to apologize in advance for my horrible ugly pictures. I planned to take pictures with them on…but that didn’t work out.

Here’s how it works: You set up a style profile and you receive a box with 5 items in it.  You can choose the frequency with which you set up the box …once a month, every other month, etc.  You pay $20 to recieve a box.  If you keep anything, that $20 goes toward your purchase.  If you keep all 5 items, you get a discount!  They send you anything from jewelry, to clothes to handbags. If you don’t want to keep an item, they have an envelope to send them back.

What I love about this is that I get a stylist that looks at my style profile and picks out items just for ME.  You can even link to a pinterest board so they can get inspiration and a better look into what you like.

All in all, I love the STYLE of my fix. I loved the look of everything.  Spoiler alert: I had some trouble with the fit.

 Item Number 1 – Moss V-Neck Pleated Dress ($68)

I.love.this.dress. Its so beautiful.  When I opened it, I knew that if it didn’t fit, I’d ask my stylist to send me another in the correct size.

….It didn’t fit. I’m sad.  I asked to get it again in the next size up!

Item Number 2 – Riley Distressed Boyfriend Jean ($68)

The sizing was way off on this one, even taking into consideration that I may have not perfectly filled out my style profile.  These were men’s size 30 waist.  I am a size 12…clearly a 30 waist is not going to work.   I love the look of them, but I couldn’t even get them on.

Item Number 3 – Pasadena Crochet Front Short Sleeve Blouse ($48)

I felt iffy about the style on this one, but my real concern was the sizing.  It was too tight in the bust.  Otherwise, I really like it.

Item Number 4 – Ava Floral Print Silk Henley Blouse ($88)

Why oh why, do I love the most expensive item in the bunch? This blouse is beautiful! Its also the only item that fit me. I partially wanted to keep it, just so I could say that I kept something, but I also really loved it!

Confession: I kept it! I love it!

Item Number 5 – Benson 3/4 Ruched Sleeve Blazer ($78)

I was really excited about this one, but it is way too small.  Its more of a jersey knit material, so I’m not sure its even work appropriate. I was hoping for a bit more structure to it.  It’s cute though.

 Lessons’ Learned

I think I need to adjust my style profile.  Clearly, normal sizing is not working for these clothes, I need to size up a little.

My stylist totally gets my style though – absolutely love all the items, just couldn’t get the sizing right this go around. I made some tweaks to the sizing so hopefully I’ll get a much better fit next time!

Overall Impression

I love this concept.  Once my stylist and I get the sizing right, I think we’ll get in a good groove!
