StitchFix #1

Disclaimer: I was not compensated for this review in any way.
All opinions are my own.

StitchFix (<--- affiliate link!) is a word I've heard thrown around a lot from a few of my favorite bloggers for a while now and I finally took the plunge and signed up about 2 weeks ago! 
 

What is StitchFix? 
 
- StitchFix is a subscription box (how often you receive it is totally up to you!) that sends you 5 items (clothes & accessories)  based on a personal style profile that you fill out when you sign up.

- Once you receive your box, you try on all your items, decide what you want to keep, throw the times you don't love in the provided return shipping envelope and pop it in the mailbox. From there, you log into your account and fill out the feedback survey and declare which items you are keeping.
 
- StitchFix has a monthly styling fee of $20. If you chose to keep any of the items in the box, the $20 is put towards the cost of the items! If you chose to keep all of the items in your box, you receive a 25% discount on all times! plus your $29 styling fee! 


 
Now on to my very first StitchFix box! 

 

Jill Michael - Montgomery Beaded a Hoop Earrings - $42
I love these! The beads move around on the hoops and I absolutely love the gold color! 


Just Black - Nolan Ankle Skinny Jean - $78
The minute I saw these in the box, I thought 'NO WAY!'. I just didn't think I would be able to pull off white jeans. The minute I put them on, I decided that StitchFix knows what they are doing! I loved them on! I would NEVER pick these up off a rack and try them on, normally! I didn't end up keeping them though, for two reasons. One, the sizing was a bit off and two the $78 price tag was not something I could justify. 

Pomelo - Moni Geo Print & Camisole Blouse - $58 
Eh, I didn't love anything about this. The fit was weird and the pattern and color was a bit much for me. 

41Hawthorn - Marie Abstract Chevron Elastic Waist Dress - $58 
I really liked this dress! The fit was cute and the pattern was flattering. However, I feel like I already own a few dresses that are similar patterns and styles, so I sent this one packing too. 

Olive & Oak - Azza Abstract Chevron Print Hi-Lo Tank - $54 
Oh, how I wanted this top to work out! The colors, the print, I just LOVE it! However, it made me look like I was carrying baby #2, which I'm NOT! I so wish it wasn't quite as loose. 


The only thing I ended up keeping from my first box was the earrings. Even though I only kept one item, I am completely hooked on this concept!

I logged in to my account and gave some great feedback on all of the items that I sent back. You can also start a StitchFix Pinterest board and 'pin' items/styles you want included in your box. 

Side note: Reviewing this box also made me realize that I need to purchase a good, quality, HUGE mirror in order to take full body selfies. I attempted to try on all the clothes and take photos of them, but the pictures were horrendous! Sorry guys! 

What do you think? Going to give StitchFix a try?! :)
