My First Stitch Fix

I have been looking forward to receiving this box all week!! It just so happened that it was due to arrive the on the same day that I hired Merry Maids to come do a heavy duty, spring clean, at my house. It was so wonderful walking into a spotless home, that smelled so wonderful, and this beautiful box.
So, what did I get? Well, I must admit, when I opened the box I wasn't wowed. I don't know if I'd built it up in my head but I just didn't see anything that I couldn't wait to try on.

I was immediately worried about the jeans. They looked so teeny! The dress was cute and I had specifically asked for a dress because I never seem to buy dresses. I want to be a dress person, I just never have been.  The turquoise shirt was super silky, and I love the color, but it's definitely something that has to be ironed. Fun fact: I don't know how to iron. I make my husband do it. The sleeveless blouse was the item that I was most drawn too. No surprise there, I LOVE gray and the tulips were such a cute, spring pattern.
Disclaimer before we get to the try-on pictures: While taking these, I realized my bedroom is so dark and my mirror sucks. Don't judge. I don't know how Maria, from Kinder Craze, takes such beautiful pictures but you're not going to find that here. Also, no face shots. It's Friday, it's been a long week. I'm not camera ready!

When I first tried on the dress I was disappointed. It just wasn't all that flattering and it seemed a little boring. I looked at the included style card and decided to try and spice it up.
It TOTALLY needs a belt! The little jean jacket helped and made it more wearable for school. It has a pretty deep "v" in the back. I don't know that I'd feel comfortable wearing it in a professional setting without a jacket. I think it's a keeper. (ps. I don't think ankle boots are the right shoe. Maybe that's why I never wear dresses. I don't know what shoes to wear!)
Next, I tried on the teeny jeans. Thank goodness they had a lot of stretch. I was amazed but they actually fit pretty well. They have a bit of a flair at the bottom and they have a higher waist than I'm used to. I kind of dug the style but I don't know if they work for spring and summer. They're more of a "fall" jean. And the butt....man, my butt is flat. lol.
You can also see the sleeveless tulip blouse in this photo. I tried it a bunch of different ways and while I like it, it's a little boxy. I also own so much gray. Not sure if it's a keeper or not. What do you think?
Last for the try-ons was the turquoise, silky, blouse. I knew right away that this wasn't for me. First there's the ironing issue but also, it's flowy and boxy, not really my style.

You can see the necklace I received in this photo also. While it's a pretty necklace, it's very similar to something I already own. 
If you're keeping track, here's the verdict-
Jeans- Return
Dress- Keep
Tulip Blouse- Keep?
Turquoise Blouse- Return
Necklace- Return

Even though I'm not keeping a lot of it and my mind wasn't blown away when I opened it, I'm still very excited about Stitch Fix. It was so fun looking forward to the box and trying things on. I also hear, from multiple sources, that it gets better over time. I'm already looking forward to my next box and I'm hoping it's even more "my style".

  2. I like the gray shirt untucked and the last green shirt looks really good on you. I'm a Stitch Fix fan and have gotten about 6 fixes. I stopped for a few months and just started back. It does get better over time. They have the BEST colored jeans. The fit is always amazing and they always feel like butter on your skin. We can't wear jeans at my school so I always ask for colored jeans because I can pull off wearing those. I have a few reviews on my blog if you're interested.
