First Post: Stitch Fix Review #1

My first post! Such a momentous occasion. I have been wanting to start a blog for quite a while, but I’m still struggling with identifying what I want to say and how I want to say it. So I figured I’d take the easy way out and start off with a Stitch Fix review! Although unfortunately, it will have to be pretty brief, because this box was kind of a dud. (Also, this post is riddled with referral links, because I like free money. Click here if you want to sign up for Stitch Fix; I get $25 with no skin off your nose! It’s a win-win-win.) Now, on to the story:

Fresh from a haircut, I was feeling pretty awesome. B called to inform me that my Stitch Fix box had arrived! A long awaited day! I rushed home to try everything on.

Trying to get a nice picture of the box. Instead managed to get Billy the Beluga in the background.

Hm, colors look alright. I asked for dark blue, green, burgundy. Lots of fall shades. And I'm not opposed to a pop of coral every now and then.

Not sure how I'm feeling about the skirt on the bottom right. And the blouses all look a little boxy to me in the pictures. Ah well, time to give them all the good college try.

Aaaaaand, duds. Duds everywhere. The Kasidy Abstract Print Swing Skirt and Stewart Colorblock Short Sleeve Blouse were so awful I couldn’t bring myself to post the pictures on the internet. The rest are pictured below.

I swear I am not actually shaped like a rectangle in real life

Worst. Top. Ever. (On me). And I really hate it, and that’s all there is to say about that. At this point I stopped letting B take the pictures, since they were turning out pretty unflatteringly. It’s all about the high angle..

I actually liked this top (and I actually like this picture too). I would have absolutely bought it if it hadn’t been so insanely large. The pattern was cute and I was okay with the shoulder studs. My fault for saying I was a medium, when I am normally between a medium and a small. Apparently I am a small in Stitch Fix sizing.

EDIT: this is a new picture from a later date (which includes the necklace I got in my second fix!) B informed me that the previous picture made my head look like an alien, so I figured I'd switch it. ;)

Aaand the only keeper. Honestly I’m not sure I would have kept it if it weren’t for the $20 credit I got from my styling fee. It was hard to get a good picture of it (EDIT: Obviously, since I had to replace the original one..). But I tried it on under a jacket I normally wear to work and it looked pretty cute, so I went for it.

And that’s that. I know Stitch Fix can work for me. I have seen so many amazing reviews where I loved every piece and would have kept the entire box. So I tinkered with my Style Profile a lot and wrote an even longer note to my stylist for next time. Hopefully it will work out and I’ll be posting a glowing review in 2-3 weeks!
