You’ve probably heard of Stitch Fix. They are super popular with moms right now because they are such a huge time saver. Stitch Fix is a service that send you a box of 5 clothing or accessory items, lets you try them on in the comfort of your own home, keep the things you like, and send back the rest. A stylist hand picks items that fit your needs and style. What busy mom wouldn’t love that?
If you looked in my closet you’d find items of clothing that I’ve owned for years. There’s honestly a few t-shirts leftover from my college days. It’s not because they are still in style. Actually, I probably still don’t know what’s in style. It’s mainly because I don’t have the time or energy to devote to finding clothing that fits my body correctly and is in style.
I’m the type of person who finds a shirt that I like and buys 3 others in the exact same style but different colors. I usually only step food in a clothing store once every six months. I simply don’t have the time and after having twins it’s kind of discouraging to try on clothes and rarely find anything that works for my new body type.
I’d been hearing great things about Stitch Fix so I figured it was worth a try. The idea of having a personal stylist choose clothes that may work for my body sounded great and not having to go to the store (to buy or return things) sounded even better.
I loved opening up my box. It was like Christmas getting a box of things picked out just for me.
You can check out the video below to see everything as I pulled them out of the box. Ignore my just got out of the shower look . . . you can tell I need a lot of help in the style department.
I really loved the things that my stylist picked for me. I loved the look of all of them. A few things didn’t fit quite right but if they did I probably would have kept the whole box.
First up was a really cute Bastille Tulip Sleeve Blouse from Papermoon. I love how versatile this blouse is. It’s a cream color blouse that really could be dressed up or down. It has some fun little details on it that make it more than just a basic blouse. I did love the sleeves and it had some cute pleats along the front to give it some extra shape.
This is definitely something I would wear, especially since it goes with so many things. I ended up keeping this piece and I’m excited to wear it to my favorite blogging conference later this month.
I don’t usually buy jewelry so I don’t have a lot of pieces to accessorize with. I made a note of that when I signed up for Stitch Fix. I wasn’t sure I would actually keep any jewelry but I wanted to see what they came up with because I feel like having something to accessorize with would help me get the most out of some of the outfits I already own.
I was pleasantly surprised when they came up with this Kaitland Spade Charm Necklace. I love the styling of this and it would go with so many things in my wardrobe. I ended up keeping this too because it so perfectly matched my style.
Next up was a Margery Stripe & Dot Open Cardigan. I actually really loved this. The fabric felt really nice and I loved the navy color on this. It looked really nice with the tulip sleeve blouse too. I was really on the fence with this one because I really did like it.
The problem is I live in San Diego and it’s warm most of the year. If I had found this at the beginning of fall I probably would have kept it but I hate to buy something new just to have it sit in my closet until next fall. It’s still a little chilly right now but we have days where it hits 70-80 degrees in February so I didn’t think I’d get much use out of this. I ended up sending this back but I’m hoping I don’t regret that when next fall rolls around.
I really need a good pair of jeans and they are one of my least favorite things to shop for. My Stitch Fix box included a pair of Dayna skinny jeans from Kut from the Kloth. These were super comfy and I loved the style.
They were just a bit long on me though so they bunched up a bit at the bottom. I really considered keeping them anyway but I’m hoping to continue loosing weight so I wanted to drop a size before investing in a good pair of jeans.
Last up was this super cute Arca Henley Blouse from Skies are Blue. I LOVED the color on this and when I first opened my box this was the blouse I was sure I was keeping.
Unfortunately, it accentuated my belly a bit too much and since that’s the part of my body I’m most self-conscious about at the moment I didn’t want to draw attention to it. If I lost ten pounds this would have fit perfectly . . . and I’m working on that. My goal at the moment is to buy clothing that makes me feel good about my body the way it is right now though so I sent this back and am hoping I can find something similar when I drop a few pounds.
So, the verdict is, I really loved trying out Stitch Fix.
I had a lot more fun with it than I thought I would because trying on clothes is not one of my favorite things at the moment. I’m definitely going to be trying it again though. I loved having someone hand pick things that worked for me and I like the idea of investing in some nicer items that I really love instead of having a closet full of things that don’t make me feel great about myself.
