Stitch Fix #1

Several months ago I read a post by Raechel Myers about a new service that involves a personal stylist who finds clothes and accessories based on my likes and ships them directly to my doorstep.  For someone who enjoys new clothes, but doesn't like to try things on in the store, Stitch Fix seemed like it was meant to me.

About a month after I signed up, I received my notification that my first Fix was ready.  I scheduled the date that worked best for me and waited to see which five items my personal stylist would pick out for me.  And when they did, I hoped I would like at least something...

Picasso Geo Print Cotton Cardigan by Angie

Bilson Pleat Detail Tabsleeve Blouse by Daniel Rainn 
& Florian Overlap Tulip Pocket Skirt by Dylan and Rose

 Korye Knit Longsleeve Top &
Carlita Cotton Crochet Top, 
both by Mystree

The verdict: pleasantly surprised!

Not only did I like at least one item I received, I actually liked four items enough to think about purchasing them.  On top of wondering if I'd like anything that was picked out for me, a little part of me was worried that everything would be too expensive for my usually clearance-only taste.  But with a $20 styling fee that can be used as a credit towards whatever I end up keeping and a 25% discount if I decide to keep everything in the box, the price point is pretty reasonable in my opinion.

In the end, I decided to only keep one item (the Carlita Cotton Crochet Top by Mystree, actually I ended up keeping the Korye Knit Longsleeve Top by Mystree), but not because I didn't like the other items, but rather I just felt that this top was different from most I already have in my closet, yet I can see it being paired with a lot that I already own.

I'm already looking forward to my next Stitch Fix and seeing what else they pick out for me.  It's really easy to sign up and you don't pay any money until you schedule your first Fix.  Sign up here!  (And come back & leave me a comment if you do because I'd love to see what you get too.)

Have you tried Stitch Fix?


  1. I've never heard of this! I think I'll give it a try.

  2. You're adorable in every item! I'm proud of you limiting yourself to one thing--I never would be able to do that. :)
