My First Stitch Fix!!!

It's finally here! My first Stitch Fix arrived in the mail on Friday and I couldn't wait to try on all my new goodies! I have watched many other bloggers update their wardrobe through this online personal styling service and I just had to try it for myself! Now I love to shop for clothes in stores! I mean LOVE... but there is something so exciting about being surprised for what's under that robins egg blue label and tissue paper! 

When I opened my box I first saw navy!... I like love navy!
The first piece is a navy & cream striped blazer! It is $72... a little pricy for my frugal budget... but I thought it fit great, felt great, and looked great! When I did my style profile, I said I was looking for colorful blazers... so my stylist hit the nail on the head, but I do have two blazers that have stripes very similar to this one... one from the Loft that is navy and cream and one from Express that is black and white. So what am I going to do with it?! Return it. It was a hard decision, because I really REALLY like it, but I just can't see having 3 striped blazers. 
The second piece is this adorable navy dress with a stripe hem for $68. It is a little long for my short 5'3 frame, but I debated about this one also! I thought with the thicker straps and the length, it would be perfect for school, but then I decided not to keep it because it looks like it will wrinkle easy and be a pain to iron. The third piece was this cute royal blue chevron necklace for $34... I thought it was adorable and at first I was going to purchase it, but as I tried to take pictures it kept flipping and I have way too many statement necklaces that do that, and I end up playing with them all day... so I decide not to keep it. 
The fourth piece is this lace detailed button-up for $48, which at first I wasn't too sure about, but when looking back at the pictures... I like it tied with a cami under it and would probably like it a lot tucked in! The last piece are these amazing grey-blue skinny jeans for $78 that I absolutely love!! They problem is they are a little too tight and I know I need a size up. I will definitely be adding a long comment to the final survey about how much a love them and would want them in every color! I am sad I have to send them back :(  
Overall, I liked every single item! It's the sizing or the fact that I already have similar pieces that has me sending most of it back. The lace detailed button-up might be the piece I am keeping... I just can't see sending all the items back and losing my $20 styling fee credit. What do you think?! What should I keep? I have one more day to decide! I'd love your input!!! 

Are you sold yet?! Are you going to make the leap to order your first Fix? Here is how it works: You make an account through Stitch Fix and complete an online style profile by providing information about your clothing style (likes & dislikes), sizes, and price range! It took me about 10 minutes and I found it to be a lot of fun! Then you schedule when your first Fix will be sent to you and patiently wait! Since Stitch Fix has been very popular lately, I had to wait about 5 weeks for my first one! It was worth it though! As you are waiting... a personal stylist hand-selects five pieces of clothing and accessories for you. Once your Fix arrives, you have three business days to ship back any items you do not want.  Returns are free... yes, you heard that right, returns are FREE! You will be charged a $20 styling fee each time you arrange for a fix, but if you decide to keep any of the items, the $20 free is applied as a credit to your purchase. What is even more exciting.... is that if you keep all 5 items, you get to save 25% on the entire Fix!After you decide which items to keep, log in to your Stitch Fix account and complete a final survey to let the them know which items you wish to keep or return, and share any comments you have on each piece so that your stylist can get to know your styling likes and dislike, which helps for more successful future Fixes.


  1. Love what you got Jacqueline!! That's too bad about the jeans...can you request a bigger size? Love that lace sleeved cute!
    I tried to sign up for stitch fix but they turned me down being in Canada...even if I shipped to the US :(
    Are you going to continue ordering from them?
    Have a great week!!

    1. Thanks a bunch! I am unsure how closely they will listen to my comment section on the final survey, I will see when my next Stitch Fix arrives on May 30th! That is a bummer that you can't get it shipped to Canada... maybe as their company grows they will make changes. I loved my first experience, so I am going to continue ordering as of right now :) Have a great week also!
