Stitch Fix Reveal #5

Woop woop! It's that time of the month again, STITCH FIX!!

Stitch Fix Reveal #5

Before we get started, here is a bit about Stitch Fix if you don't already know:

  1. It is a personal styling service in which you fill out a style profile, give them links to your Pinterest style board and leave notes for your stylist as regularly or irregularly as you'd like. 
  2. Your stylist takes the time to handpick 5 items for your fix that they think you'll love. These items vary from clothes to jewelry, scarves, purses and even shoes. For my Stitch Fixes I only ask for clothes because that is the area where I lack styling ability. 
  3. They ship you your fix, you receive it and have approximately 2 days to try everything on and decide if you love it or hate it. Then you send back what you don't want in a pre-paid envelope and keep the items you couldn't part with. 
  4. Last little details, Stitch Fix has a $20 fee for each fix sent to you. If you purchase any items the $20 goes towards your purchase and if you purchase all five items you get 25% off! You can get a Fix as often as you want. I am signed up to receive them monthly but I can turn that off at any time, set it up to send only when I request one or I could even bump it up to every two weeks (if only Justin wouldn't have a fit over that...).

This fix was alright... I had asked specifically for some cream/white blouses to wear with the burgundy pair of tweed slacks I own (featured here) but I wasn't very specific and I ended up getting blouses I just didn't think were quite right. However, as usual, the pencil skirt was ON POINT!

Firstly, what an awful pictures, but I digress. when I pulled this out of the box I thought I'd keep it for sure, but it ended up just not being all that flattering and the arm holes were a bit large. This is one of the blouses I got for from my "beige/white blouse" request... but it just wasn't going to quite work with the slacks and it wasn't everything I've ever dreamed of. Back it went.

So this was a definitely no as soon as I took it out of the box but when I tried it on it just got worse. I feel like it's a bit matronly in style, for one, and for two, the tank top that it comes with is SUPER tiny and like a cheap stretch material. If I'd kept it I would have cut that tank top out ASAP because it just wasn't going to cover anything (hence the other tank I have underneath). I also just feel like I have so many blouses in this style and the pattern made it so I can't really wear this with the slacks.

Another return. This one is actually a really pretty color and not unflattering but again, I have a ton of blouses just like this. It was also just a super thick fabric which I thought was a bit strange, although I'm not sure if I disliked that about it... I did dislike how large the buckles on the arms were - rather than just having buttons they were more like how you'd fasten a belt, and it was just a bit much for me. Another one back to the box.

Now we're getting to the good stuff!

Kept!

I'll be honest, when I pulled this out of the box I was like "mm, yea that's a no" but then Justin said something about how he likes it and it's different than what I'd usually wear. And then I tried it on and was like "mm... well this fit isn't awful" and that was my decision-making process on this one. Step out of my comfort zone, get a crazy pattern in a skirt that will keep me nice and cool all summer. Turns out I really like this now :)

So I'll admit when I saw the price (and I never look until I've tried everything on, and usually cut tags off the items I like, if I'm being completely honest...) I had a mini heart attack but alas, it had to go in my closet. IT HAD TO. I'm obsessed with this skirt, it's the first pencil skirt I've owned in a long time, and the first Stitch Fix has sent me that fits like a glove rather than just straight down and I'm in love. It goes with any of my colored blouses, any shoes, it's amazing. I love it so much I want two and who needs two of the same skirt?

So there you have it, my June Stitch Fix!

If you haven't already... start Stitch Fix today, I can't speak highly enough of the service. My wardrobe is more stylish than I ever could have done shopping for myself.

What did you think of this month's fix?! Should I have kept any of those blouses? I'm not feeling any "non-buyers remorse" this time...
