Stitch Fix :: April 2015

This was actually my second Stitch Fix! I had my first one back in October, but I never posted about it because I didn't like or keep anything that came in it. {There's a picture in this post though.}

I'm sure everyone who reads blogs is familiar with Stitch Fix, but if you're not, I'll try to describe it. When you sign up, you fill out a profile with your measurements, likes/dislikes, price range, and what you're looking for. For example, I told them to never send me jewelry. You can link them to a Pinterest board for more information about your style. Each box costs $20 (styling fee) and that will be used towards anything you decide to keep. You can either schedule your box manually or have it come every month. When your box arrives, you try on your five items and decide what to keep, and then you fill out a survey about the items before you mail back your unwanted items within three days of its arrival. If you keep all five items, you will get 25% off.

For this fix, I knew to be more specific with what I was looking for, so I told my stylist that I am looking to add more black and grey to my closet. I really liked the jeans last time, except that they were distressed, so I mentioned that and also asked for maybe a skirt or dress.

A lot of grey and black, just like I wanted!

{Before I get to the rest of the pictures, I just want to explain that I don't have a tripod, full length mirror, or anyone to take pictures for me, and the options that I had for places to take pictures weren't the best, so they ended up being taken in my guest room and I'm not too proud of these pictures, but I wanted to share what was in the box anyway. No, I am not a fashion blogger.}

Octavia Alden Ikat Infinity Scarf in black | $28 | 100% Polyester

I'm not really into the ikat pattern, but I think it works really well on this scarf! I decided not to keep this one because I already have a scarf in these colors, so I didn't really feel that it was worth the price. The material is a little on the thinner side, and I feel like it could be easily snagged. {I used this as the background for the rest of these photos so that it wasn't so bright like this pink one.}

Market & Spruce Brentwood Tiered Striped Long Sleeve Sheath Dress in black | $78 | 95% Rayon, 5% Spandex

I wanted to like this dress, even though it's a bit out of my price range. I didn't like it though, and here's why. While the fabric is super soft and a very nice stretchy material, it was too clingy on my body. I'm very self conscious of my torso area, and this was not flattering on me at all. I did like the neckline, but the way the fabric criss-crossed across the front was a little weird for me. The dress hit right above my knees, and while they are supposed to be long sleeves, they actually were about halfway between my elbows and wrists, closer to the wrists.

Market & Spruce Corinna Striped Dolman Top in grey | $48 | 60% Rayon, 35% Polyester, 5% Spandex

I thought I might like this shirt, but I didn't. My stylist said that this is one of their most popular items, but it didn't work for me. The stripes on a loose shirt like this one seemed to widen me, and I just wasn't happy with the loose fit. The sleeves kind of bothered me as well. It's super soft though, and maybe I would have liked it better as a solid color.

Pixley Messi Lattice Neckline Knit Top in light grey | $68 | 60% Polyester, 35% Rayon, 5% Spandex

I knew right out of the box that this would be a no because I don't wear tank tops that often. I tried it on anyway, and I was not a fan of the detailing at the top. In the back, it also cut my tattoos weirdly. Once again, I do prefer to wear more fitted tops to show that I have a figure, and I feel like this made me look like a blob.

Just Black Connely Skinny Jean in black | $78 | 98% Cotton, 2% Spandex

These were a little bit out of my price range, but with the $20 off for the styling fee, I knew that they were worth it, and so these jeans were the only thing that I kept. Not only are they super soft and comfortable, but they are classic and filled a gap in my closet. I do own one pair of black skinny pants, but they are dress pants and not too comfortable or practical (we're talking fake pockets), so I've only worn them a few times. I know that I will get some use out of these, and I put them in the wash with the rest of my clothes right after I took this picture so that I can wear them tomorrow!

Have you tried Stitch Fix yet? What was your favorite thing that you've received?

Haven't tried Stitch Fix yet? I would definitely recommend trying it for some new options for your closet! They even send you a little card with the pieces to show a couple ways to wear each item.
