First peek at my Stitch Fix!

Ever since I received my first Stitch Fix, I’ve been itching for another one.  I’ve been living vicariously through friends who also receive fixes and I’ve been all over Pinterest checking out what other people are getting.  I’ll repeat, I’m not a fashion blogger…but I got a lot of great response after posting my first fix, so I think it’ll be fun to share again.  And of course, if you’d like to start receives fixes for yourself, you can sign-up using my referral link and I’ll love you forever.  🙂

So let’s go over what I got:

1. Smith Ruffle Front Blouse $48

Green top

 I immediately loved the color of this top and the ruffle detail.  It’s comfortable and fits well.  I was a little hesitant at first, because the details on the shoulder make it tough to conceal bra straps.  But I think this will be a great piece for summer, both at work and play.  Verdict: KEPT.

2.  Pink Martini Sally Mixed Striped Dress

Meh.

Meh.

This dress is definitely not something I would have pulled off a rack to try on.  I don’t usually do structured pieces and while I’m a big fan of stripes, this pattern turned me off.  The material was nice…cotton, but thick and comfortable.  It was just too loose on top and while I didn’t think it looked bad, I didn’t love it.  I had peeked at my items when my fix shipped, so I had already googled this dress and saw it in both blue tones and black and white.  I didn’t really care for either of those, and then mine arrived in orange.  Yuck.  The only upside was that it had pockets!!! I love a dress with pockets!  But not enough to keep this blah orange-striped, wayyyy overpriced thing.  Next!

Verdict:  Sent back.

3. Mystree Alissa Twist Front Striped Dress

This dress is ALL wrong.

Also known as the ugliest dress in the history of the world.  I saw this dress in someone else’s review and immediately knew I would hate it.  It’s a pinkish floral pattern that is striped (makes no sense, I know…) and it is just plain awful.  The top wouldn’t fit anyone with a chest (the knot is so awkward) and the seam connecting the skirt and top landed pretty high on me.  Side note:  I specifically told my stylist that I hate “girly” things, floral and any dress that has a seam under my boobs.  This dress had all of those things.

Verdict: Couldn’t send it back fast enough!

4. Natasha Front Pocket Sleeveless Blouse (off-white) $58

5. Lucilla Mixed Stripe Maxi Skirt $58

Obsessed with this combo!

After seeing this top in other reviews, I knew what I was in for.  I saw it in other fixes in a hot pink or weird purple color, so I’m thankful mine arrived in this cream color.  I wouldn’t have picked that for myself and don’t think I own a single top in cream.  It’s sheer with gold accent buttons and pockets and is long enough to wear with leggings or skinny jeans.

As far as the maxi skirt, I specifically asked for one in this fix so I was excited to see it.  I often have trouble finding maxi skirts or dresses that are the right length for me.  My stylist did a great job on this piece, because I love everything about it.  It’s just the right length, fits great around my hips/waist and is such a fun color/pattern.  Would I normally spend $58 on a maxi?  Absolutely not.  But in this case, it was love at first sight.  Verdict: Kept both!

In the end, I kept 3 out of 5 pieces and I’m content.  I do think my fix was pretty pricey for the items I received, but I had some referral credits so didn’t feel too guilty about splurging.  If I hadn’t had the credit, I probably would have only kept the skirt.  I left lots of feedback during checkout and hope fixes only get better from here on out.  This fix was purposefully scheduled for almost 2 months from my first, so I wouldn’t go overboard on my spending each month. Since then, Stitch Fix has created an “every other month” option, which works fantastic for me!  After checkout, I signed up for that option and my next fix will be coming at the end of June!  Stay tuned…and if you’re intrigued enough to sign up, don’t forget about my referral code! 🙂

What would you have kept from my fix?  Have you tried Stitch Fix yet?  Tell me about it…

  1. I actually really do like the shape of that orange dress…if only it was not orange and striped, haha. I loveeee a dress with pockets.

    The skirt and skirt combo is SO cute!!

    I tried to sign up for Stitch Fix a few months ago but they said they wouldn’t be taking on more accounts until mid-May. I guess I should check back now!

    • I love the first green top! I”m signing up for Stitchfix now haha

      Have you tried Vain Pursuits? They’re kind of like Stitchfix but for beauty products
