Stitch Fix

Yes, I know today's post is a little out of the norm of what I usually write. I'm classifying fashion as a cultural post, okay?

For those of you unfamiliar with Stitch Fix, it is an online styling service that sends you clothing and accessory items at times you schedule. Here's how it works:
  1. You sign up and fill out their style profile. This includes everything from your sizing, to what you can afford to spend, to personal preferences regarding your fashion taste.
  2. Based on your preferences, a stylist at Stitch Fix assembles a kit of five items that are sent to you. It's a surprise, so that's what makes it fun.
  3. Once you receive your Fix, you try everything on, keep what you like, and send back anything you don't like. You confirm payment online and send a note to your stylist about the quality of your Fix and what you'd like to see change for future Fixes.
Easy. You don't pay for anything upfront - yes, you enter payment information upon signing up, but you don't actually pay until you decide what (if anything) to keep.

So, without further ado, I present my Stitch Fix items.

1. 41Hawthorn | Bryan Short-Sleeve Open-Front Cardigan

This is a basic layering piece. While I have similar items, I don't have anything like it in white. White is a good neutral, so I'm looking forward to wearing this over many different casual tops.

2. Ezra | Juniper Lace Detail Floral Print Blouse

I like flowy tops and the lace detail makes this ultra-feminine. This is easily one of my favorites from my first Fix. As seen here, the longer length works well with black leggings. I imagine it will look cute with a denim jacket in cooler temps.

3. Market and Spruce | Twain Twisted Neckline Slub Knit Shirt

In my style preferences, I marked that I like neutrals for classic pieces like knit shirts. I may change this preference for future Fixes. Here I have paired it with skinny jeans and basic necklace.

4. Zad | Melodie Layered Teardrop Stone Necklace

At first I wasn't sure if I wanted to receive accessories in my Fix, but I love this necklace. I'm a big fan of colorful statement necklaces with the right outfit. Definitely a keeper.

5. 41Hawthorn | Iris Striped A-Line Skirt

This skirt is hands-down my favorite item in my Fix. The waistband has a bit of a stretch to it, so it's comfortable. The stripes are in versatile colors, so it can be easily dressed up or dressed down, as seen here. And the bonus feature? It has pockets that I can actually fit my phone in. It's a keeper.

I hope you enjoyed the out-of-the-ordinary fashion post today, and I'll definitely be trying Stitch Fix again in the future. Ladies, give it a go. It's a lot of fun!
