You can imagine how thrilled I was to discover the box waiting for me after having to endure a four-week wait for my first Stitch Fix . Stitch Fix is essentially a personal styling service, for those of you who are unfamiliar. Making a style profile, picking a delivery date, and waiting for your box to come are all very simple steps. You’ll have five wonderful products to pick from when it arrives at your doorstep, and you can either keep them all and receive a 25% discount or send back the items you don’t want for free (please note that there is a $20 styling fee that you may apply against any purchases you make from your box).
Did I mention that delivery is free both ways as well?

Before deciding to use Stitch Fix, I read a lot of reviews about the company, so I was aware that I needed to be particular. I took the time to make a thorough note to my stylist as well as a Pinterest board with clothes I loved. I informed her that I was just interested in one accessories item for my first fix and that I didn’t want any dresses.
My hairdresser, Stephania, welcomed me with this lovely card when I got my package. I was pleased straight away to see that she paid attention to my requirements because she included one jewelry, three blouses, and one pair of jeans in my fix. Stephania sent me the shirts in a size small because I’m tall and prefer to wear some clothes a little baggier than others.
I’ll be honest—I was a little apprehensive that I wouldn’t like any of the shirts or items I received. However, after I put each item on as instructed, I was pleasantly pleased by how much I liked it. Here is a summary of what I discovered:
I’m sorry that my self-portraits in front of the mirror aren’t very good, but I at least wanted you to see how the side zip up looked on this incredibly cozy cardigan! Since the fabric is heavier and really soft, this is definitely my favorite piece from my first fix. It’s wonderful for fall!
2. 41Hawthorn Beatrice Open-Back Dolman Top
I had a bunch of these tops pinned on my Pinterest board, so Stephania must have noticed how much I adore them. I had been cleaning out my closet in anticipation of receiving some fantastic stuff from Golden Tote and Stitch Fix, so I was overjoyed to find this top in my package.
I occasionally find it difficult to find jeans because I’m petite and tall, but I also have some muscle in my legs. Although my first impression of these jeans was that I wanted they were black, I was nevertheless glad to acquire another pair of thin jeans because I intend to wear boots frequently this season (especially since my amazing hubby recently gifted me with the loveliest pair of ankle boots)!
In the photo with the dolman top, I’m also sporting the pants. As you can see, they actually fit quite well! They appear to be well-made and quite comfy, which is always a bonus in my book.
3. Spruce and Market Bruno Sleeveless Tunic with Chevron Print
This was the one component of the entire remedy that I was truly unsure how to handle. I would never have picked this out for myself, but I was curious to see how it would turn out. I didn’t particularly like it when I first put it on without a belt, but after putting one on, I started to like it. To obtain some input, I snapped a photo of my pals and uploaded it on Facebook:
I was shocked to learn that every single one of my pals said I should keep this shirt! The smaller print actually has a blue that is quite similar to the one on my cardigan, so they look great together. I took the choice to give it a shot after thinking that I wanted to think outside the box a bit.
Since I was keeping everything else in my fix, I figured that I could absolutely use this piece. I’ve been in need of a lengthy necklace for a time.
Yes, I did keep everything from my first fix. Since I honestly believed I would have to return back at least two items before I received my box, I have to admit that I’m a bit startled, but Stephania did a fantastic job styling me! It was like having Christmas in August when I finally got my fill!
I believe you should at least test Stitch Fix if you are on the fence about it! I’m sure you can get a wonderful repair as well as long as you state your needs clearly, be explicit in your stylist note, and are aware of your size.
