Here’s a little disclosure before you read any further: I am not a fashion blogger. I’m a regular mom who wears sweats more often than not and I typically buy my clothes at Target, Kohls and TJ Maxx. I don’t buy things for myself that often, but when I do, there’s a little feeling of satisfaction (and selfishness) that I took the plunge.
I’ve been in love with Stitch Fix for awhile now, but this is only my second box in one year. For me, the anticipation of waiting for the beautifully wrapped box is like Christmas for a child. When it arrives, there is a personal note from your stylist who chooses these items specifically based on your measurements and style preferences. I left a note for my stylist that I am looking for fall clothes that are comfy, yet presentable enough for running errands and picking my kids up at school.
And if you aren’t a fashionista like me, included with your fix are photo cards with each of the items in different outfit recommendations.
Here’s what was in my box!
Denna Skinny Jean (by Kut From The Kloth): $78.00
I am super picky about jeans because I have a strange body type. These were comfortable, but seemed too high-waisted for me and just didn’t fit well overall. Verdict: sending back.
Presidio Lightweight Beach Stripe Scarf (by Subtle Luxury) $38.00
The scarf fabric is super soft, but I’m not crazy enough about the color/style to keep it. Verdict: sending back
Gretchen Striped Raglan Sweatshirt (by Tart) $28.00
My stylist nailed the comfy request because each of these items are super soft. I’m not crazy about the horizontal stripes (I thought they make you look fat?) and the color is o.k., but I am tempted because it’s just so darn soft. Verdict: undecided
Corinna Striped Dolman Top (by Market and Spruce) $48
Here’s another horizontal-striped shirt. The cut seems flattering (slightly longer) and I like the color which seems to go well with my skin tone and hair color. It also is easy to wear casual or dress up. Verdict: Undecided
Alan French Terry Asymmetrical Zip Cardigan (by Market and Spruce) $68
For some reason, this doesn’t look as good in the photos as it does in person. I do think the asymmetrical zip causes the fabric underneath to bunch up and make me look bulky. I didn’t realize until I was taking it off that it turns into a flowy cardigan, which wearing it that way may be the way to go. I’m very tempted by this because it’s so soft!! Verdict: undecided
If you don’t know how Stitch Fix works, I decide what to keep (and only pay for those items) and send everything back that I don’t want within three days. Help me decide what to keep and what to send back!
If you are interested in trying out Stitch Fix, I would LOVE if you did it through my affiliate links throughout this post!
