Stitch Fix #2
In case you are not familiar with Stitch Fix, let me fill you in. Stitch Fix is a personal styling service (you pick how often) that sends you clothes and accessories based on a style profile that you complete. You can keep the pieces you love and send back what you don’t. There is a $20 styling fee but if you keep any of the items the $20 fee is applied to the purchase price of the item(s) you keep. If you keep all 5 of the items you receive a 25% discount on EVERYTHING. Basically it is like playing dress up as an adult…..and it is both fun and addicting!

On Thursday my anticipated Stitch Fix package arrived. Vann didn't want to nap (this is beginning to be a pattern...1 nap in 5 days), so while he was having "quiet time" in his crib I checked out the pieces the stylist picked out.
First one I tried on was the Janie Pleated Skirt. I. Do. Not. Do. Pleats. I am making this known on my style profile. I like tailored skirts more than large poofy ones. It's not a good look for me and all of my 5'2"! Seersucker has never been a favorite of mine either, so this piece is going right back! And after seeing the photo I KNOW I made the right call.
Next we have the McAdams Beaded Neckline Blouse. The material, fresh white with a pop of color, and the style was me. Ryan even commented that this was on of his favorites, but also said "I feel like you have a shirt like this" and he's probably right. It's very me. It's a great top to layer. I feel like it screams date night in downtown Athens...and I like that idea!
The Rana Floral Dress is another piece that I am not in love with. I did really like the fit. I could see me keeping it in a solid fabric. It really reminds me of the Babysitters Club or even channeling a bit of the floral print Kelly used to wear on Saved By The Bell. While I loved those shows...I am not wild about these flowers!
On the note I left my stylist, I shared that I would be at a business conference this month and would love some lightweight pieces but appropriate to be professional. I wasn't completely sure one way or the other about this one, I can't find a necklace that goes well, what shoes would I wear, the neckline is plunging. It reminds me of a maternity dress I had...maybe that's a sign to send it back?
Verdict: ??? HELP! Keep or Return?
I wanted to like the Zola Assymetrical Dress soooo bad. I had actually pinned the purple version to my board. BUT the pattern is identical to a dress I already have in my closet AND the fit is killer tight! I loved the front, but the back is a whole different story. I will spare you the photos! Stripes and super stretch don't make me feel extremely comfortable, so it's headed back to Stitch Fix headquarters.
While I wasn't thrilled with all 5 pieces it was still fun, it let me shop for myself which I haven't done in a while, and it all happened from the comfort of my own home. Another great thing about having another fix would be the feedback I can give my stylist so that each box only gets better!
What do you think? Is there something you would have kept? Have you tried it yet? Try it now!
