One of the reasons why I love Stitch Fix so much is that I feel like they really listen to me. I like the little personal notes they send every month, and that they take the time to read my blog to find out more about me and what I'm looking for.
If you need the details about Stitch Fix, here's the details:
First, go to stitchfix.com and you create your style profile. Also, create a Stitch Fix Style pinboard and link it to your profile so that your stylists can get a feel for your clothing tastes and preferences. Then schedule your fix!! The stylists will hand pick 5 items for you to try on. They send the clothing pieces directly to your house, you try them on and decide what to keep (if anything) and then you send back what you don't want. Super easy and convenient!
- There's a $20 styling fee, which you can use toward your order. (that's awesome!!)
- If you keep all 5 items you receive 25% off your order.
- You choose your price range.
- The more feedback you give on the pieces sent to you, the better they get over time. So be sure to be very specific to your stylists so that they can send you things you'll love.
Item #1 - Shiva Plaid Mixed Material Tee
Item #2 - Kate Distressed Boyfriend Jean
First, let's talk about the top. If I'm being totally honest, I wasn't super thrilled about the pattern right out of the box. Plaid isn't my favorite, and I probably wouldn't buy anything with this pattern if I was walking around the store. That said, though, I liked this top a lot better after wearing it for a bit. The top fits really well and it's really comfortable, too. Chances are I'll send this one back, but I'll take another day or so to think on it.
The jeans, you might recognize these from my August fix! I ended up sending them back because they were too big in the waist. So they sent me the size down this time, and honestly, they still feel a little big in the waist. I mean, I have lost weight and inches over the past month or two but I don't feel like it was THAT much of a difference. I kinda feel like this size should fit better. And also, I after wearing them around for 30 minutes or so, they stretched out a little so these will end up looking even bigger than they do in these photos (which really aren't a good indicator since you can't see them around the waist) I'm torn because I really love these pants, but now I'm wondering if I should go down even another size!??
Item #3 - Henry Birds on Branch Infinity Scarf
I really like the colors and the pattern on this scarf, so I could see myself wearing it for sure! I always have a really hard time committing to scarves for some reason, though. Anyone else have that issue?? lol
Item #4 - Rowson Colorblock Striped Sweater
I really really wanted to love this. I mean, I like it. But I don't LOVE it. You know? I can't deny that it's super comfy and I would probably wear it a lot, though. So there's that. Just not sure about the colors of this. I think I'd like it more if they were pastels. Maybe I'm just being too picky.
Item #5 - Xander Short Sleeve Woven Back Sweatshirt
Well this is lovely, isn't it? I really like the contrast of materials with this top, and the colors are awesome. Can never go wrong with grey, and the pastel pink is very pretty. 99% positive I'm keeping this baby. Smooches for Angela (my stylist) for this one! ;-)
And that's it for September's Stitch Fix!! What do you think? What should I keep and what should I send back??
