Ok, so I signed up with a company called StitchFix about a month ago when a co-worker of mine suggested a new, and fun way to shop. We often swap stories about clothing finds and always mention the same stores. yawwnnnn… I figured this was a good way to have other looks/items put in front of me that I may not otherwise have looked for. When I tell you I have been waiting for this package with the glee of a 5 year old on Christmas morning.. I have been!
When I initially signed up, I took an online questionnaire letting my stylist know what types of pieces I would want to see, and at what price range. Based on my results, I was an “edgy” type that wanted to see pieces that would also be ok in the office.
Well…yesterday I received my first box! What’s cool is that you pay a monthly fee of $20 to be a member but that goes toward any purchase you make. Your stylist will send you 5 pieces to choose from (including accessories) and you are welcome to purchase the ones you want, and send back the ones you don’t within three business days. If you purchase all 5 items, you will be awarded 20% off your entire purchase.
I only decided to keep one item from my first stitch, however I think this is something I will keep up. Since “monthly” things seem to be a negative in adult life (Rent, period etc..) It’s nice to have something exciting happen monthly!
Take a look at my stitch! sidenote: I did also receive a teardrop necklace with this stitch that was not special by any means, so I didn’t even take it from the packaging.
The stitch came with these cards showing ideas on how to style the pieces included. Awesome inspiration!
Note: Speaking of “stitch” I don’t have a stich of makeup on in these posts so..beware! I also left all the tags on the jeans because at this point, I don’t know if I am keeping them or not.
The jeans are by Kensie and before this I had never heard of the brand. The moment I slid them on they fit like a glove. I couldn’t believe it! Most of my jeans fall into the category of uncomfortable or too short. These were a perfect mix of the two. They also sent me this Corinna striped top that hugged in all the right places. I could see it as a casual piece, but I don’t feel it was worth the $48.00 they were asking for it.
The next piece I got was a leopard print blouse by C. Luce I really liked the print and felt it was a top I could wear with a midi skirt (pictured above), white jeans or black slacks. The only thing I wasn’t a fan of was the mid cap sleeve. I have bigger arms so I like to keep them semi hidden!
I also received a black thin cardigan with a faux leather shoulder by HoneyPunch detail that I also thought was a great piece to have in my closet. I paired it here with a mini dress since it will be getting warmer out and the days of leggings, high boots and cardigans are coming to an end. Since I have an unlimited supply of faux leather and black in my closet, I decided to send this one back as well.
All in all I was thrilled to try this service and receive my box! If you are interested in signing up to give it a try, use this link so they know Lovein201 sent you!
