Time has seemingly gotten away from me as my girls have gotten older and busier. This makes it hard for me to find time to shop. It also is a little know fact that I hate shopping! There is something about standing in front of a mirror, with those awful fluorescent lights that makes me cringe and not want to look at every single flaw I have in that all too big mirror. I prefer to try those clothes on at home....enter Stitch Fix. Stitch Fix is a style service where after filling out a detailed style profile, a personal shopper picks out 5 items for you, you keep what you like and send the rest back in a postage paid envelope. You do pay a $20 styling fee, but it is applied towards your final order.
Since I'm getting caught up around my blog, this was a Stitch Fix I received last fall. For this Stitch Fix, I specifically asked for cute jeans and some more fall type outfits.
Item #1: Mystree Redford Striped French Terry Zip-Up Cardigan: $28
I'm really into cardigans, especially for our long fall/winters. I feel like they can be paired with so much and look really cute. I initially wasn't sure what I thought of this one. For one, the sleeves were white and I have young kids. Plus, it zipped up and I typically prefer to have loose fitting cardigans. However, all my hesitations faded once I tried it on. This is the softest, most quality material I have ever owned. Absolutely amazing! Plus, it looks adorable on (trust me this isn't the best picture of me in it, but it really does). After realizing I had a $20 credit to use, this was an absolute keep!
Item #2: Market and Spruce Pegah Striped Long Sleeve Shirt: $48
Oh how I loved this shirt! It was cute, comfortable, and really nice quality! The only thing holding me back is that I have a ton of clothes that are navy and white striped, including the zip-up cardigan I was about to keep. I just couldn't justify keeping this one too.
Item #3: Kensie Jeans Kaleigh Ankle Biter Skinny Jean: $88
I pulled these jeans out of my box and just gasped! I LOVED them! Plus, they actually fit when I put them on, which isn't very easy to do on my curvy bottom. An added bonus was that these things were comfortable! Soft, good quality, and such a great fit. There were only two things holding me back, the color and the price. I really liked the color, but wasn't sure I would get as much wear out of them as I would a typical jean color. I was fine paying the price on something I am going to get a lot of wear out of, but these probably would not be worn daily. I passed on these, and to this day, I still regret it. I may be trying to put in a request for these sometime this next fall.
Item #4: Collective Concepts Melandry Dot Print Button-Up Blouse: $34
This shirt was so adorable! Especially when paired with the cute pants! However, I didn't quite feel comfortable with the fit being a bit flowy. For the price I would rather have found a shirt I loved and this just didn't fit that this time.
Item #5: Market and Spruce Breyson Split-Neck Tab-Sleeve Knit Top: $48
This was the only item of this Fix that I just didn't care for. It seemed to fit me all wrong and I just could not get it right. Should have those sleeves been buttoned like that? Or were they supposed to go down? The material was also rather thin, and I want quality right now. I loved the color, but again, I am being picky on what I'm keeping and what I'm not right now, so this was a pass.
While I only kept one item out of this Stitch Fix, I have gotten lots of use out of it, and I love it! My only regret is getting rid of those gorgeous jeans. After looking at my fall/winter wardrobe I decided to take a break from clothes shopping until the spring! So watch for another Stitch Fix review coming up as I have already gotten a box!
