I finally did it. I got my first fix.
My first Stitch Fix that is.
Have you heard of it? You no longer have to be a celebrity or be a millionaire to now have your own personal stylist! Stitch Fix is a team who helps women find clothes to flatter and compliment our bodies and personal styles. I've been seeing friends post pics of outfits on Instagram for months now and I actually signed up some time ago. But I didn't order my first fix because I was still losing weight and was in-between sizes. I'm still losing weight actually but my curiosity got the best of me so I filled out my questionnaire, told them all about my style, and then
patiently impatiently waited for my first fix!
When it came it felt like Christmas!
I couldn't wait to see what they picked out for me.
In this fix I only had tops. I'm thinking I skeerrred them a little with my wishy washy size right now so they played it safe and only sent tops.
They always send 5 pieces in each fix and you can specify what you want or don't want them to send. They also ask if you have anything special coming up that you would like them to send stuff for. I actually have a special trip coming up that involves tropical weather so my sweet stylist sent more of summery stuff rather than fall pieces. ( in hind sight, I wish I woulda just had her send fall stuff which I am SO ready for!)
They send you little cards with each piece suggesting how to change it up for different looks. I always envisioned having a grand time changing up the looks with different stuff from my own closet and taking pics and all that. But alas, I got the package and had about 30 minutes before the sun went down to take a few pictures because we were leaving the next morning for a week. So what you're about to see was me frantically flinging together a couple of outfits in 10 minutes and Nick snapping a couple pictures with my phone. Hopefully next month will be better.
There was this little sleeveless top that I loved but couldn't get it to look right on me.
I loved the little details on the shoulders.
Next was this little sleeveless top that I loved the print and the fit...
But it looked too much like everything else I already had. I loved it paired with a cardi though.
They had this really sweet top that had the cutest little tie at the neck
I tried it on with darker jeans and still wasn't sure. Wish I woulda tried it on with my black palazzo pants. The brand is called "Nick and Me" which made me almost keep it just for that alone. But my Nick wasn't crazy about it so I sent it back.
There was another top but I didn't care for it at all and didn't take a pic. It was a total miss.
But my fave and what I kept was this little beauty....
Loved this necklace and I have lots to go with it.
I only kept one thing this time but all in all it was a great experience. I'm already signed up for my next fix and looking forward to what my stylist picks out for me.
If you would like to sign up for yourself, it's easy peasy.

You pay $20 for your stylist fee but then that is credited towards anything you decide to keep in your fix! So much fun! And I gotta give props to their customer service...I had a mix up with the shipment date and it was scheduled to arrive after we had left on our trip which meant the package would be sitting outside for a week with time sensitive belongings in it. Once you get your fix you have three buisness days to return what you aren't keeping. I panicked because I wouldn't be home until well after the three days and didn't want to be charged for clothes I hadn't even had a chance to look at much less try on! Well the customer service was more than understanding and notated my account so I would have plenty of time. But then I was able to pick it up before I even left from Fedex so all was well and I worried for nothing. But it did give me a glimpse into how they handle such problems and I was more than pleased with their customer service.
Can't wait to til next month.
