I’ve been a fan of Stitch Fix forever and even more so since they released plus sizes (as well as Maternity and Men’s)! Even though I’ve received a few other boxes, this is the first one I wanted to share on my blog… also it’s the first one I tried all the clothes on and had someone (aka CA) take the pictures for me lol. I think my favorite part about Stitch Fix is that you get a personalized stylist for each “fix” you get. If you have a special event coming up, or realize that your closet is lacking a clothing item, you can leave your stylist a note to let them know. I also like that they have fashion tips & outfit ideas on their main page. Even though I love fashion, styling new outfits can be tricky for me, especially if they contain color (I’m more of a black with color sprinkled in girl). They even have “Ask a Stylist”! So maybe you want to try something unique than what you have in your closet now, you can ask them for their opinion! Maybe you want to know, “how do I style this new skirt I got,” or “can I wear a jumpsuit, even though I’m short (this one’s me!)? I’ve gotten “lost” on their site looking at different outfit options for going on a road trip and what to wear for holidays!
So, when you sign up here, you fill out a style profile, which has various questions to answer so they can send you the clothes that best fit your style. The questions vary from choosing a set of clothes that fit your style closest or what you like to hide/show off with your body. After you fill out all of that, you’ll see that a stylist is working to fill your box with five different items (clothes, shoes, jewelry, etc.) and an estimated ship date. Once your box ships you’ll be charged $20 for a styling fee. Once you receive your box (yay!), it’s time to try on those clothes! This is my favorite part about the box because I can do it at home, not in a store where I feel rushed. Plus if they don’t fit, then I have to go back to the dreaded customer service/returns department, and no one has time for that. In this Stitch Fix I asked for at least 1 or 2 summer tops, and the rest I left up to my stylist’s choices.
In my box, I received two summer tops, a kimono, jean shorts, and a necklace. Since my awesome husband took photos of me outside before the rain came, you can see the all the details!
First// Renato Drape Back Detail Blouse // Size 2XL // Fit- Loose // $54 // Return
I love the color and the feel of the top but it’s a little too short for my liking, I like tops that go past my waist not just hit it. The back is weird too (not shown) it drops down so you’d see my bra strap if I wasn’t wearing a sweater. The material is loose and very light which is perfect for summer time.
Second//Laneer Cold Shoulder Blouse // Size 2XL // Fit- Loose // $58 // Return
This shirt was hilarious for me to try and put on. It’s supposed to be a cold shoulder top; I am wearing it as a spaghetti strap shirt because I couldn’t figure out how to get my arms in the sleeves while putting the shirt over my head. YES, I kid you not, that was my issue. The material was beautiful and light, the colors lovely, but ya….big “no” on cold shoulder tops.
Third// Mina Distressed Cuffed Short // Size 2XL // Fit- Semi Fitted// $58 // Keep
I have short legs and a long torso, so I usually go for shorter shorts but not too short, and these are the perfect length. I love the cuffed look, so these will be added to my summer wardrobe I’m so excited.
Fourth// Colombo Kimono // Size 2XL // Fit- Loose // $44 // Return
This was CUTE! It’s so perfect for summer, just not my style. I feel like I wouldn’t grab it as much as I would like to.
Fifth// Blossom Tassel Pendant Necklace// No Size// Fit Long // $28 // Return
I want to get it, but I know it would just sit on my necklace tree and not get used. I don’t wear costume jewelry for my day job, so this definitely would just collect dust. I love the length though and the simplicity of it, maybe if I were more of a fashionista instead of a fashionista wanna be I’d keep it.
