Five on Friday {Volume Six} - Stitch Fix Edition!

It's been quite a while since I've done a Five on Friday.  It's a great way to share and I love having a clear goal for me and a clear format for you!  And this one is going to be EXTRA cool.  

I just received my very first Stitchfix.  Stitchfix is a personal styling service that send clothes right to your door.  Shipping and returns are free. You choose how often and when you receive a "fix".   All you do is pay a $20 styling fee - which is used as a credit when you purchase the items you love.  So you really have nothing to lose because you will absolutely love at least one of your items!

You may be thinking that this will never work for you.  I definitely thought the same.  I have a large bust, short torso, short legs, a booty...the list goes on.  Shopping is frustrating and time consuming.  I cannot believe how fantastic my fix items fit!  And I didn't even have to go anywhere!  Plus, who doesn't like getting pretty packages?!

When you first sign up, you will input all of your sizes, height, styles and trends that you like, etc. You can leave notes for as well as share a Pinterest board with your stylist.  This is a great way to try to help your stylist curate your fixes.  Signing up took about ten minutes total and my fix was here in less than a month.  So fun!

So here we go...I'm going to show you the FIVE FABULOUS items I received.  I actually decided to keep ALL OF THEM, so I got a 25% discount on my purchase.  Awesome!  

(Note that the items are straight from the box and photographs were taken by the hubby - aka wrinkles and not professional photos)

ONE:  Zad Bessie Swirl Drop Earrings.  These are very light and fun!  They have a shiny finish and are actually pretty large.  I will definitely wear these for work or for a fun night out.  Funky and cool!

TWO:  Just Black Dean Skinny Jean in Wine.  I would normally NEVER wear a colored pant, but they tell you to try on everything and I'm sure glad I did!  These are ankle skinnies with a zipper detail.  They are a soft, stretchy material and fit amazingly.  One thing I always read on Stitchfix reviews is that somehow the jeans they pick always fit like a glove.  TRUE.  Jean shopping takes me DAYS and usually ends with complete frustration.  These are cute, fit well, and are perfect for fall.  I can't wait to show them off!

THREE:  Skies are Blue Amari Jacket.  This is a funky jacket that will be great for fall and winter.  The style is definitely something I would have worn when I was wearing all black and sweatshirts.  I have this on a hanger because I'm exchanging for a smaller size.  This jacket has fun sleeves, a drawstring at the waist to change the look, and a mock collar.  It also has a zipper AND buttons and the sleeves can be buttoned up.  I will be able to wear this in so many ways!

FOUR:  THML Havana Dress.  I never would have picked this dress off of a rack.  Blue usually isn't my thing, I CANNOT wear shift/swing dresses and I am not usually a lover of this kind of print.  I put it on and was so surprised.  It's SO CUTE and flattering to my shape.  The hem is also a bit lower in the back so it is comfy and modest.  It is a bit tight in the shoulders but chiffon items with sleeves always are.  This is work, fun, party, and wedding appropriate.  Jazz with some gold earrings and a bracelet, and POW!

FIVE:  Papermoon Bastille Tulip Sleeve Blouse.  This was the first item I put on.  It FIT and it is SO GREAT!  Chiffon tops (as I mentioned) are hard with a large bust, but on this one, the sleeves are cut just right that I have a full range of motion.  Speaking of the sleeves, they're TULIP sleeves!  So cute!  Again, something I would normally never pick up as is it very feminine, but I absolutely love the way they look.  I put on this top with the jeans above and showed Mike.  He was stunned and speechless.  It's nice to have some really nice clothes now, as I am usually Mrs. Bargain Shopper.  

I simply cannot believe how great all of these items are.  Most of them I would have never even picked up.  Although I may not have originally kept all of them, when you purchase all of your items, you get a discount, so I essentially got one of the most expensive item for free.  You know I love my discounts!

If you would like to ask questions about price and sizing, please comment below or send me an email  I would be happy to chat with you about it!  Make sure to check out Stitchfix!!

  1. StitchFix sounds interesting! Sort of like Gwynnie Bee (which is for plus sizes), but with more customized service. I like that they also send jewelry and accessories. I've used Rocksbox for several months now, and I think it's the stylists who really make the service worthwhile. So I'm glad to hear that StitchFix has stylists who curate your boxes especially for you. Glad you scored such awesome pieces on your first round. Thanks for the introduction!

    1. Thanks Liz! I really love my pieces and can't wait to break them in! I love trying subscription boxes :)

  2. I didn't know you could exchange for a smaller size. How's that work?

    1. Hi Ashley! Thanks for stopping by :) I emailed CS and told them that I wanted to purchase and asked if they have a different size. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. I have had good luck so far! I also just received another fix, check out my latest post!
