Stitch Fix #1

After about a year of waffling I finally decided to try Stitch Fix.
 
Stitch Fix is essentially a stylist service at a minimal price.  The cost of each "Fix" is $20 and that $20 will be applied to any item(s) you purchase. 
 
The best piece of advice I got before I decided to try Stitch Fix was to be very specific and very detailed when filling out the user profile.  I can happily say that by following that advice I was pretty satisfied by what came in my first "fix".
 
Without further ado here is my review of the items I received.
 
1. 41Hawthorn - Jace Dot Print Fit & Flare Dress {kept}
 
When I looked at the style card that came with this dress it was misleading because the picture on the card does not do the dress justice.  The card made the dress seems one color when actually it's a dark dress with adorable teal polka dots.  I was leery until I tried the dress on...it fit like a glove and was extremely comfortable.  I like that I can wear it to work and on the weekends.
 
When I asked Max to take pictures he even agreed the pictures just don't do the dress justice (hence why we lightened one).
 
2. Sweet Rain - Sarafina Leaf Print V-Neck Blouse {kept}
 
I've been trying to jazz up my tank top/sleeveless blouse section of my closet because with the impending move to Houston I know they will come in handy.  The leaf print on this shirt was small and very pretty.
 
3. 41Hawthorn - Benson 3/4 Ruched Sleeve Blazer {kept}
 
 As you can see I REALLY liked this blazer.  I've been on the hunt for a navy blazer for probably over a year.  All of the ones I had found previously, that I liked, were ridiculously expensive (think $200+).  So I was pleasantly surprised by this blazer priced at $78.  This was the most expensive item in my box so I think my stylist, Victoria, did a great job respecting my wishes to keep things as affordable as possible. This jacket looked great with the Sweet Rain - Sarafina Leaf Print V-Neck Blouse (see above), my pineapple sundress (love the work bathroom shot), and my flowy pink blouse.

4. Dahlya - Tapainga Split Neck Blouse {returned}
 
 

I really wanted to like this blouse.  Problem was the buttons down the front had gaps between each button and I just couldn't get comfortable with the idea of showing off my bra.  I actually wore a nude camisole under the blouse in the picture above.

5. Kut From The Kloth - Siena Capri Pant
 
The pants were actually very comfortable, but they were not meant for short people.  They are supposed to be capris and look more like a shortened ankle pant on me.  Also, the pockets flared just a little so I thought I would likely end up being self-conscious about that.  This was the last photo that I asked Max to take and he definitely got a great candid of me that I knew had to be shared.
 
I'm currently scheduled to get fixes every month, but I might change that to seasonal/quarterly.
