Hi, loves! Emma here. I’m writing this from a very cozy office in the middle of a ridic snowstorm. I hope you are all staying warm out there. And, if you’re in a warm climate, just know that all of us in the midwest are very, very envious. Remember when we talked about subscription boxes awhile back? We’ve had some emails asking about the Stitch Fix box I was going to try, so I’m taking this weekend opportunity to share it with you. Read on to find out more…
First, I’ve been meaning to talk about Stitch Fix for awhile, but alas, time has gotten away from me. We covered a little bit about this amazing idea back in our post on subscription boxes, but today I’m honing in on one of ’em: Stitch Fix. A few weeks ago, I tried my very first delivery of Stitch Fix, which, if you’re wondering, is a subscription-based clothing delivery service. I kid you not. Clothing — to your door. Styled by a pro. It was like my birthday had arrived when that sweet little box was sitting on my porch. Like a dope, I totally skipped out on taking photos of the clothes on me, but I still want to share my Stitch Fix experience with you. And I found examples of the pieces I received.
My Stitch Fix Experience
Here’s a general run-down of the process:
1. See box on porch. Squeal. Pick up said box.
2. Open it immediately with whatever you have lying around. My car key was my box opener of choice.
3. Read the hand-signed note written by your stylist, hoping you enjoyed your fix.
4. Open clothing wrapped in tissue paper like birthday presents (as fast as you can).
5. Hurry to the nearest bathroom to change and look in the mirror.
My Stitch Fix included these pieces…
Since I’m pretty pregnant at the moment, I asked my stylist to offer a few ‘flowy’ options to wear now and after the baby arrives. She did a pretty good job, but when I tried on the tops they were… hmm, not my favorite.
1. Tab Sleeve Blouse
This was cute, but sheer. I’m not crazy about putting on a shirt I have to put another shirt underneath first. Call me crazy, but that’s just practicality. Even with the cami underneath, it just wasn’t my style.
2. The Cocoon Sweater
With it being winter, I really wanted to love this sweater. However, it felt sort of blah… too boxy, a little too large, and felt more like a lounge-around top. I have so many of those, so instead of $68 for another, I parted ways with it.
3. 3/4 Sleeve Blouse
This was sheer, but looked decent on. I considered keeping this piece, but turned it in. I couldn’t decide. I didn’t love it enough to keep, and I’m hoping my next Stitch Fix will give me something I really love.
4. Sleeveless Top
The sleeveless top was cute! However, it was a bit short. I’m tall, so I’m guessing that paired with a big baby bump was a combination this shirt could not accommodate. I sent it back on its merry way.
5. Maroon Toggle Coat
Finally, a piece I loved! This coat was oh-so-cute and I knew right when I unwrapped it that it was mine. I even put it on the hanger in my closet right after trying it on. My only gripe is the color is so dark, meaning it won’t be a piece I can wear for long. However, I will enjoy it with a scarf, skinny jeans, and a pair of flats. And, I’ll welcome it warmly with open arms once Fall arrives again.
All in all, this was as pretty good fix. I only kept one piece, but that meant I could keep my $20 styling fee (which went towards the purchase of my coat). I put my name on the list for the next fix, hoping I’ll get a few pieces I’ll really love enough to keep. The experience is a fun one… if you haven’t tried it yet, DO IT NOW! I promise you’ll be so excited you’ll want to share your experience, too. You can click on the image below to get started:
It’s so easy to get started. All you do is sign up sign up here, fill out a styling profile, and schedule your fix. You can schedule just one… or sign up for monthly fixes. You can add in comments or tips for your stylist, like my request for a few ‘maternity-friendly’ pieces and to skip over any jewelry (since I wanted to focus mine on clothing).
Oh, and next time, I’ll be sharing photos! This time, me and my sweet baby bump will be under wraps. ;)
