My First Stitch Fix Haul | Tryin’ to be a fashion blogger!

Ok, so I love fashion. I never BUY fashionable items, but I still love it. I’m starting to incorporate a few good pieces into my closet since I’m almost 30 and I should *probably* get rid of the clothes I got going into my sophomore year of college. #heyo

So now I’m trying out Stitch Fix! I’m in no way sponsored by Stitch Fix, but that is a referral link, just so you know! And as you can tell, I’m a HELLA qualified fashion blogger. 🙄  Don’t mind the perfectly timed photos taken with my iPhone with Ben sitting at his desk trying to work and I’m in between a mattress and a garbage can … oh, and a puppy with a cone head. Told ya – SO MUCH FASHION.

The Process

First of all, for those of you that have never used Stitch Fix, I filled out a questionnaire online and sent a link to my Fashion Pinterest page – easy peasy!

Once I got my package and made my choices, I went online, paid the money for the piece I kept (the $20 styling fee went toward it which was AWESOME) and told them why I didn’t like the other pieces. Then I packaged everything up in a bag they provided and sent it off in the mail.

My Fix

I ordered my SF a couple weeks ago and had it sent at the beginning of the year. I was so excited when it came in! It even came with a little present for Ben …

Moving on to my stuff …

Stitch Fix Piece 1: Returned

My First Stitch Fix Haul | Tryin' to be a fashion blogger! Nothing like trying to figure out that fashion blogger life, am I right?!I loved this scarf, but it was $38 and I’m just not paying that for a scarf. Plus, I’m more of an infinity scarf girl or serious blanket scarf (though this one claimed to be, but it was more rectangular than square). Back it went!

Stitch Fix Piece 2: Kept

What you don’t see in this post is that I just finally splurged on some high quality leggings from Athleta because my three-year old Zella Leggings have a huge hole in the thigh that I’ve just been ignoring for oh, two years. ANYWAYS, I can’t wait to wear my new leggings and this big ol’ cardi. And a shirt, obvs.

It was SO soft and long, but still fit my arm length which always makes me nervous with over-sized anything. I’m a small human, so loved that it was made that way!

Stitch Fix Pieces 3&4: Both Returned

I loveddddd these jeans (and I hate jeans) – they were petite, so they fit my length perfectly and the tears weren’t too huge. Problem was, they were a little to small and for $88, I’m not paying that unless they’re a hells yes!

The top was another fix. Ben LOVED it, I felt like it was too “grandma-ey” so that was returned as well.

Stitch Fix Pieces 5: Returned

I *almost* kept this dress. Ben loved it and I thought it was really pretty (especially for a wedding I have next month) but I felt it was too similar to a dress I already have so I just couldn’t bring myself to pay $50+ for it. Really loved it, though!

Overall Thoughts

SO MUCH FUN! First of all, it was fun to get a few pieces sent to me and figure out what worked. I feel like my stylist really listened to me and it was only my first fix! I’ll probably never keep the whole box because $$$ but I think it’s fun to do once a month or so and see what items I can get. Super excited to do it again!

What did y’all think? I love reading post like this, so I hope you like it, too. Let me know if you’ve ever tried Stich Fix in the comments below!

    I actually JUST did my first Stitch Fix recently, too! Unfortunately, I didn’t love anything enough to keep it. But, I also tried out Le Tote and I’m a huge fan of Le Tote already! And crazy coincidence: I wrote about both on my blog today!

    I love the black shirt, the jeans, the cardigan, AND the dress! I would love to try a SF box but because of my size, it’s just not worth it. I feel like I REALLY have to be picking with bottoms and dresses, and even shirts really.. So, eh. I’ll just buy my own shit that I can try on! It’s a good way to get some new fun things though! I LOVE SF reviews!!

      Girl, you struggle so much with your size! 🙁 I totally get it. I struggle with tops a lot, just because of my smaller frame and you’re smaller than me!

    I am far too picky to do stitch fix. I’m typically in the market for a specific piece of clothing in a specific color. PLUS i’m short with a booty and a small chest. They just wouldn’t get me. BUT I think its a great thing to try if you want a few seasonal items to mix it up!

      Haha well, I’m short with a booty and a small chest, too, so you can’t really use that as an excuse. 😉 But I totally get it – this isn’t for everyone! To be honest, I’m usually way too cheap for quality clothing (I’m and H&M & Target girl normally) but I figured I could get a couple of pieces.

    I’ve never tried Stitch Fix but it’s always interesting to see what people end up getting! I really like that cardigan & definitely would have kept it too. And I LOVE that dress!! It looks so good on you! Boooo for the price… and having a similar dress too, haha.

    Hello Jessie, you have shared such a nice blog. You are looking very cool in this dress. I really liked your cardigan very much. I never tried stitch fix but after reading your blog I am also going to try it. Thanks for sharing it with us.
