Here are the 5 items I received in my first Stitch Fix box. For more information on what it’s all about, check out my previous post here. A cool little idea included with each article of clothing is an attached card with styling options. I like that. Click on pics to enlarge.
Ballario Ruched Side Long-sleeve Top by “Sweet Pea”
Positives: color, ruching defines waist
Negatives: priced too high; I had a similar “Sweet Pea” top that I put in a yard sale because I didn’t really like the fabric – too “huggy” in other places I don’t need it to be. I let them know not to send me anything else in that fabric.
Positives: made in the U.S.A., flattering, cute print, cute tab sleeves, looked good over a pair of skinny pants I already own
Negatives: too short to wear as a dress, pocket hung weirdly
Ivy Drop Print Tab Sleeve Blouse by “41Hawthorn”
Positives: made in the U.S.A., cute tab sleeves, CUTE print, good color combo, great fit, love the style, great length without looking boxy; I REALLY LIKED THIS ONE A LOT!
Negatives: price point a bit high for a top and if it had been less expensive I would have kept it
Verdict: returned but just barely
Rocco Faux Wrap Tank Dress by “Last Tango”
Negatives: a bit too short, fit more like an XS and so was, again, “huggy” in places I don’t need it to be…
Verdict: returned but I would have kept this one had it been a bit roomier in the bust area and a tad longer (I may request this one again in the next size up.)
Gold Spear Earrings by “Betty Carre”
Verdict: kept these!
After receiving my first “fix” I completed my online form (very easy) to let them know what I was keeping. I just have to put the returns in the postage paid bag and drop it at the post office – you get 3 days to do this. Also, I logged into my Stitch Fix style profile and added more specific information as to what I like. Lastly, I created a “My Style” Pinterest board and linked that to my profile so the stylists have an even better idea of the kind of clothing that looks good on me. Basically I like classic, casual pieces and if there’s a little quirky or unexpected detail – all the better! That being said, I’m open to being a little more adventurous to get out of my style rut.
Will I do it again? I’ve already got my next “fix” scheduled and expect that with the style updates and Pinterest board I made, the next box will have more keepers.

So what do you think? Will you give Stitch Fix a try? I tell you it was so much better than shopping at the mall!
