If you haven’t heard of all of these monthly beauty and style boxes circling the Internets, let me introduce you to one of them: StitchFix.
In a phrase, StitchFix is an online personal shopper.
What happens is you pay $20 to order a “fix” from StitchFix. You fill out a style guide and then you wait.
In a few weeks, a stylist will mail you 5 hand-picked items based on your style guide . You get to try on all the pieces, keep what you want or send it all back. You pay only for what you keep AND your $20 styling fee you paid up front goes towards the purchase if you choose to keep something.
Y’all, it’s like Christmas.
Within just a few minutes the box looked like Christmas morning, indeed.
So. Before I show you pictures you have to know I was sick all day, didn’t fix my hair or makeup and didn’t try to put these pieces in outfits. This is like legitimate girlfriends-in-a-dressing-room-trying-on-clothes pictures. Except I ran outside because the lighting is so much better.
NORDICA AIRY KNIT OPEN CARDIGAN
Um, does my face give it away? While I normally love cardigans, love maroon and love knitted things, something about this combination didn’t work for me. The sleeves were tight. The length seemed too long. I felt old.
ARINELL TRIANGLE TRIBAL PRINT TANK
I liked the idea of this shirt. Clearly it would be cuter with leggings and boots. I believe this was a size too big though.
LYRA 3/4 SLEEVE JERSEY TUNIC DRESS
Again, it’s hard to imagine with these cords on. The dress would be way cute with tights or leggings but I don’t know. I just can’t seem to get with the pattern. I usually love the chevron pattern but this just didn’t work for me. The dress made me look boxy and dated me. Perhaps another size too large..
HOLLOWAY BUTTONDOWN STRIPE MAXI DRESS
This dress? This dress was all kinds of awesome. It fit like a glove, has gorgeous stripes in all the right places and I love the color. I want to wear it every single day this summer.
TRIBAL PRINT GOLD CUFF
The final piece is a cuff. Unfortunately, the cuffs and I don’t get along too well. Normally, I’d be open-minded but the cuff stayed more like this:
Oh my, isn’t that so much FUN?!
And yes, as you go, you give feedback about size and styling and it gets better as time goes on. As someone said last night, it’s like Pandora!
I’m totally ignoring price tags right now and just having fun with the arrival, dressing up and sharing!! Prices aside, what should I keep?? Is it just me or is the maxi dress the winner, winner, chicken dinner?
