My first fix!

My first Stitch Fix, that is!

Have you heard the wonderful news yet? Stitch Fix is a team of personal stylists that combines the fun of receiving surprise packages and shopping! Two of my favorite things :)

I am normally hesitant when it comes to online shopping, you never know what will and won't fit, right?

Stitch Fix makes it so easy. You fill out your personal style profile. They provide fun questions so that you can tell your stylist all about yourself. They want to know so much more than just your size. 

What styles do you like? What styles do you hate?
What are your favorite colors to wear?
What materials do you love?
And most importantly, what's your budget? 

Cause let's be real, you don't want to receive a box of high-end expense items if that just ain't in the cards, right? 

Anywho, enough of my babbling. Let's get to the clothes. 

You probably just scrolled here anyway, huh? ;)

1. Gartner Front Striped Tank // Yumi

2. Kailyn Straight Leg 5-Pocket Denim // Kut From The Kloth

I seriously loved both of these. As for the tank, it is just my style! Love the fun colors, love the loose fit, and lately I'm diggin' the longer in the back look. 

Definitely an all around win for me!

And the jeans? First of all, the fact that they fit so well just blew my mind. I'm sure some of you can relate when I say that I'm different sizes everrrywhere I go. 

I learned very quickly never to let my jean size depict how I feel about myself, cause it is always changing!

But these bad boys fit perfectly. Five points for Stitch Fix!

Onto number 3:

3. Patsy Paisley Print Button-Up Tank // 19 Cooper

I've been getting into button ups lately, so I really loved the style of this top! As I said with the last tank, I'm all for the lower in the back look, so I was a big fan of that.

I could definitely see myself wearing this to work, or out in a casual setting. Love the versatility!

And our last two items:

4. Mission 3/4 Sleeve V-Neck Blouse // 41Hawthorn

5. Double Layer Circle Bubble Necklace // 41Hawthorn

I really loved the fit of this top. I used to think that loose tops were unflattering on me, but I'm definitely starting to hop on this trend. I think this top would be extremely flattering on all shapes and sizes. 

When I first put it on, I felt like the V might be a bit too deep. I tried it with a tank, and wasn't a huge fan of that, so I was at a bit of a loss on how to style it. But now looking at the pictures, it doesn't quite look as deep. I think I could figure something out :)

And as for the necklace? This was the first thing I saw and I just about died. 

I've been hoping to find a cute bubble necklace (just call me a trend follower), and this one was right up my alley. I adore the mint color, it can go with just about anything! Plus, the chain is easily adjusted to different lengths, so it can be made longer or shorter depending on the neckline. 

Can you tell that I love it? 

So what did I keep?

In case it's not obvious enough, I loved everything in my first fix. Everything fit perfectly, which was a very pleasant surprise!

As for prices, I wasn't too surprised with the prices of my items. I don't think they were unreasonably priced, but I will say that I'd love to see them a liiittle bit more affordable. 

Next time (because there will absolutely be a next time!), I'm going to book my fix for later in the month when I haven't just paid rent/bills :)

But this time, I had to pick what was best for my budget, so I went with...

((As if I haven't made you read enough for this moment))

the Double Layer Circle Bubble Necklace from 41Hawthorn!

I just love it!!

Thank you, Stitch Fix, for doing an awesome job with my first fix!

Schedule your's here!

That does seem like a fun thing to do. I would feel so leery about letting someone else pick clothes for me, though! From the sounds of it I would probably be pleasantly surprised, too. So that's nice. :)

I really like the "longer in the back" look, too!

Julie said...

Can't get over how adorable you are! Love love love all these outfits! So glad to see you got a necklace you love :) And I can relate 100% on the jeans thing– I'm a completely different size everywhere I go. I have such short/awkward legs so it can be so frustrating! Haha!
