Tuesday morning I received a package on my door-step from Stitch Fix. It’s been a while since I’ve used their services, and I’ve never documented it on the blog, so I thought it was high time for a little clothing extravaganza! You see, Stitch Fix is an amazing online company which basically provides you with your own personal stylist. It’s pretty simple! First, you sign up on their website and fill out a style profile. It asks you questions about what you like to wear and your lifestyle to get a clearer picture of the type of clothing you would enjoy receiving. You can also include a link to one of your Pinterest boards for your stylist to peruse. Next, you schedule a “fix” and leave a comment with any special requests or upcoming occasions. And then WAM-BAM, in a few weeks you have a package with five unique items, hand-picked by your own stylist. You also receive a style card for each of your five pieces with two outfit ideas. This is a neat way of showing you how you can incorporate the pieces into your own wardrobe.
For this November Fix, I told my stylist that I recently moved to Miami and was looking for some Autumnal pieces without going the whole cardigan and heavy knits route. I also mentioned I would love to receive a dress option for a wedding I’m headed to later this month. So, wanna see what I got?
1. Market & Spruce knit top with cut out detail.
3. Papermoon blouse with lace detail and tab sleeves.
3. Zad metal cuff with gold, rose gold, and silver.
4. Mavi knit top with cowl neck and zip detail.
5. Papermoon dress.
Now comes the fun part! Deciding what to keep and what to send back. Your box comes equipped with a pre-stamped bag/envelope so you can send back what doesn’t work for you at no extra charge! However, if you keep all 5 items you receive a 25% discount off your total bill. You have three days to make your selections. I like to have a rifle through my closet, jewelry box, and shoe collection to try and come up with full outfits for each piece. This is my way of sussing out if I’ll actually wear the item or not. Here’s what I came up with…

What do we think, my loves? All the shirts hit the “Fall in Florida” mark spot on! I can style them with more autumnal accessories but they’re lightweight enough that I won’t die of heatstroke in the process. I’m not certain how often I would ACTUALLY wear the bracelet but I do appreciate that it’s mixed metals, meaning it would tie everything together when I’m wearing silver and gold jewelry at the same time. The dress is the real kicker though. The cut is super flattering and I think it’s a perfect pick for a New Orleans wedding…but there’s a little rip in the fabric! GAH! I know the rip/hole will get bigger each time I wear (and wash) it and it feels wrong to buy something I know I’ll get limited wear out of due to that damage. I contacted Stitch Fix to see what they can do so *fingers crossed*! But I’m curious, what do YOU think I should keep?
If you’d like to give Stitch Fix a go, and I SOOO recommend you do, CLICK HERE. It’s nice to have an option for cute clothes that doesn’t involve schlepping to a million stores! AND if you already know you’re expecting a package, is a great way to curb a bunch of “fast fashion” impulse spending.
