Stitch Fix Review: Fix #6

Every once in a while, Stitch Fix will offer to waive the styling fee in order to get you to try out their service again. When they just so happen to do that right when I was considering ordering a box anyway, well, you know I had to.

Bonus: If you decide you want to give Stitch Fix a shot, they’re currently offering a Give $25, Get $25 for orders that ship before July 28. So if you use the links in this post, you’ll have a $25 credit waiting on you!

A quick reminder for anyone who doesn’t know, Stitch Fix is an online service where you set up a profile, pay $20 and have a personal stylist send you five curated items they think will suit your needs/wants. Once they arrive, you get three days to try things on, mix-and-match with items from your own closet, and decide what you want to keep. If you keep anything, your $20 up front goes toward your final total; if you keep everything, you get a 25% discount on the entire box. It’s super easy and, if you’re like me and hate to shop, easy is what you need when you need new clothes. Plus, referral links (like the ones in this post) get you $25 credit for each time someone orders a fix.

OK. Here we go! Stitch Fix review, complete with terrible bathroom shots!

First up: Skies are Blue, Crochet Trim Top


I had to text 4 people on this one, all because I didn’t think I liked it, but Darrell said he did. Ultimately, I’ve decided the boxy style is unflattering on my body type. The size was right, just the way it was cut doesn’t work for me.

Cost: $48. Verdict: Sent back.

Next up, from the same company (Skies are Blue), the Abner Back Cutout Detail Top.


I really wanted to like this tank top – I love the cutout design – but the fit wasn’t right. It was baggier around the bust than it should be, and left big gaps under my arms. And again, kind of boxy, leaving me looking like a giant square.

Plus, let’s be honest: Mama’s gotta wear a bra under her shirts, and this cutout style top isn’t going to cut it.

Cost: $48. Verdict: Sent back.

For the last of the tops, the Nelda Halter Blouse, from Pixley.


I actually really like the style and print of this top, but once again, the fit was all wrong. It was too big in the bust, leaving lots of room under the arms. And, again, strapless bras are just not my jam right now, and therefore neither is this shirt.

Cost: $44. Verdict: Sent back.

When it comes to these shirts, either I’m just not in style, or maybe I need to size down on my style profile, but something’s not quite right. I’m hoping the next fix I order can get to the bottom of this.

Anyway, onto the dress! This one’s from Collective Concepts – the Chantelle Dress.


That’s the face you make when taking a backside selfie, obviously.

I have to tell you, I really liked this dress. Unfortunately, where the waistline sits really accentuated the fact that my stomach is still soft after having a baby.

Or after all those doughnuts people keep bringing into the office.

Whichever.

Either way, I’m bummed about this one because it was oh-so-close to being oh-so-right.

Le sigh.

Cost: $88. Verdict: Sent back.

And last but, uh, least – the Monica Suede Criss Cross Slide Sandal, by Dolce Vita.

Ugh. Feet.

These were comfortable, and even though I was lukewarm on how they looked, I was actually halfway excited about them because I thought they could be my I-should-wear-something-nicer-than-flip-flops-but-screw-wearing-heels shoes.

And then I looked at the price tag.

Hahahaha. I’m sorry, but $70 is just way too much for shoes I’m not really excited about. I also don’t really love slide-on sandals – I’m more of a ankle strap kind of gal.

So, like everything else, back they went.

Cost: $70. Verdict: Sent back.

Once more, I sent back everything. I was really hoping I’d be able to get something fun to wear over 4th of July weekend, but this just wasn’t the box for me. It seems like I need to really write out how things fit, as that’s the biggest problem. Next time I’ll be asking for more fitted tops, and maybe more forgiving dresses, as it seems I’m getting the two sort of in reverse of what I actually need.

If this review hasn’t completely dissuaded you, I’d definitely recommend you give Stitch Fix a try. Especially since if you order for delivery before July 28, my referral link will get you $25 too – that’s enough to cover your styling fee, meaning you’re out nothing if you don’t like your fix.

If you DO decide to try it, I’d love to hear how it goes!

 

Stitch Fix Review: Fix #5 – Post-baby Fix

Now that little dude is 3 months old (yes, it’s true, and no, I don’t want to talk about it), I figured it was time to go ahead and schedule another Stitch Fix.

Well that, and the fact that I asked for Stitch Fix credits for Christmas, so I had some money to burn.

Hooray, free monies!

So of course, that means another Stitch Fix review. A quick reminder for anyone who doesn’t know, Stitch Fix is an online service where you set up a profile, pay $20 and have a personal stylist send you five curated items they think will suit your needs/wants. Once they arrive, you get three days to try things on, mix-and-match with items from your own closet, and decide what you want to keep. If you keep anything, your $20 up front goes toward your final total; if you keep everything, you get a 25% discount on the entire box. It’s super easy and, if you’re like me and hate to shop, easy is what you need when you need new clothes. Plus, referral links (like the ones in this post) get you $25 credit for each time someone orders a fix.

For my first fix post-baby, I knew I wanted to aim for a new pair of jeans (like always) and a couple tops I could wear to work that would be forgiving in the midsection.

Because, you know, I just spent the previous year being stretched out and rearranged from the inside and, believe it or not, everything didn’t immediately settle right back into place.

Thanks, tiny human.

So I filled out my request asking for jeans and forgiving tops and waited impatiently for it to arrive.

(Forgive me, but I threw out the info on these before I wrote up this post, so I’m working from memory. Which of course is flawed, because baby brain.)

First off, the two tops they sent were fantastic.

PaperMoon Iglesia Pleated Blouse

IMG_4471

Oooh, pretty.

PaperMoon Bret Raglan Top

IMG_4474

Oooh, comfy.

They were fitted enough to have some shape, but flowy through the middle which is what I asked for.

Cost: $48 each. Verdict: Kept.

Next up, the jeans. Pretty awesome.

Mavi Freida Skinny Jean

IMG_4478

These jeans are a mid-rise, so they help hold in the gut a little while not being so high-waisted that they remind me of my maternity jeans.

Oh, maternity jeans. I have a love/hate relationship with maternity jeans. But that’s neither here nor there.

Cost: $98. Verdict: Kept.

These dress pants, while super flattering, were just not something I needed.

IMG_4480 (2)

Umm…  Oops. I totally forget the name of these. Ultimately I wish I could have kept them – they were high waisted and smoothing without being too tight – but at $98 for a pair of pants I had no real need for, I couldn’t justify the price. More on that in a minute.

Cost: $98. Verdict: Sent back.

OK. Now the dress.

IMG_4482

Lol whoops – forgot to take off mah socks.

Come on, Stitch Fix. This dress again?

They sent me this wrap dress again in a different pattern. Or maybe it’s not the exact same dress, but guess what? Still not flattering.

Wrap dresses are supposed to be almost universally flattering, but there’s something about the fact that this is a faux wrap, meaning there’s actually an elastic waist in there, that makes this dress hit in all the wrong places.

Kind of like it did last year. Because I’m the same person.

(True story – I was actually a few weeks pregnant when I got the blue one but hadn’t told anyone yet. Early pregnancy bloat = remarkably similar to post-pregnancy pooch. Good stuff.)

So yeah. Shocker, Stitch Fix, I still don’t want to spend money on a dress that makes me look wider, shorter and squishier than I am.

Cost: $68. Verdict: Sent back. Sent back so hard.

Probably the thing that annoyed me the most about getting this dress again – aside from feeling like I was being shorted an item – was that had I received those dress pants with any other fix, I probably would have kept them. As it was, I lost the $90 5-item discount because I just would not keep that dress.

Yep. I essentially would have PAID $30 to send back that dress had I kept the pants.

So the pants went back, along with the dress, even though they were pretty flattering and probably could have found a place in my wardrobe.

Le sigh. So close. Maybe next time will be the one where I keep all five items, Stitch Fix.

Assuming you stop sending me this dress, of course.

Stitch Fix Review: Fix #4 (Maternity Fix)

It’s been a while since I posted one of these, but since my lovely sister ordered her first fix last week using my referral link, I had $25 to spend and a dwindling closet that could use a few new pieces, so here we are…

My first Maternity Stitch Fix!

I updated my style profile to let the folks at Stitch Fix know I’m expecting in November, and asked for a few pieces I could wear on the regular, either to work in my casual office or out running errands.

I’m pretty lucky in that my sister gave me a ton of great stuff (thanks Kim!) from her maternity days, but her style and work environment differ a bit from mine.

She’s fancy. I’m not.

So aside from a few of her tops and jeans, I’ve been relying pretty heavily on the two pairs of shorts I bought, along with a handful of Old Navy tank tops that are nearing their limits.

Sorry, tank tops. I’m gonna wear you til you wear out or you’re no longer long enough to cover the belly, whichever comes first.

OK. Back to the box.

My Stitch Fix arrived yesterday and when I first opened it, I was pretty excited. There were some awesome colors and the fabrics felt nice, always a good start to a fix. Per the husband’s request, I started my fashion show with the dresses.

Up first: Abilene Printed Maternity Dress by Leota Maternity.

Bummmmmp.

Bummmmmp.

This dress is cute, light and comfortable. It also gets bonus points because (I think) you could potentially continue wearing it post-partum, as the wrap-style collar gives you a bit of leeway for nursing.

That being said, though, it’s a bit expensive when I think about what I’d actually need it for. I don’t HAVE to wear dresses to work, though I can, so I filed this one away into the if-I-keep-the-whole-box, box.

Spoiler alert: I don’t keep the whole box.

Cost: $98. Verdict: Sent back.

Next up, the Gabre Maternity Dress by Eight Sixty Maternity.

Cute dress, terrible picture. Sorry guys.

Cute dress, terrible picture.

Alright, I have to admit, I really love this dress. You can’t tell from the picture (because I’m a terrible selfie-taker and am way too lazy to make someone else do it), but it’s a very pretty navy blue dress with a cut-out overlay. The back dips down a bit (not too much), there are pleats over the bump and overall, it has some really cute details and it’s even comfortable, like a big T-shirt.

But again – when am I going to wear this? For the price, I couldn’t justify it on it’s own, and again, it fell into the maybe, if I keep everything, category. It also doesn’t help that my sister gave me a maternity dress (in gray) with a very similar style/cut, so if I were going to wear a dress like this, I’d probably stick with the one I already have.

Bummer. Sorry, adorable dress. You deserve someone who wants you as much as you want to be wanted.

Or something.

Cost: $94. Verdict: Sent back.

Maternity shopping is so weird. Clothes are expensive, but you’re only going to wear them a few times before you’re back in regular clothes. I think had this been a non-maternity purchase, I would have shelled out the cash. But seeing as how I won’t be this size and shape forever, it doesn’t make much financial sense. Le sigh.

Alright, next up, the laughable Azalea Cold Shoulder Maternity Knit Top by Loveappella Maternity.

Seriously. Why?

Seriously. Why?

My face in this picture pretty much sums up my feelings on it. Why. WHY would you make this shirt for maternity?

I feel like I can see gears turning for the men (obviously, men) who designed this shirt:

“Hey, guys, girls get fat when they’re pregnant, right? But like, what part of their body doesn’t get fat, so we can show that off?”

“Uhh, derr, her shoulders.”

“Bro YES – CUT OUT THE SHOULDERS!”

Pair those unattractive shoulder slits with a tight (why?) but loose (what?) knit fabric that highlights the fact that my belly button is flattening and widening, and you have this perfectly hateable shirt.

Gross.

Cost: $48. Verdict: Sent back.

Now this one. This one, I’m bummed about.

The Anaheim Roll Sleeve Maternity Top by Loveappella seemed at first to be awesome. I mean hey, I’m even smiling in the picture!

Aww, prematurely happy.

Aww, prematurely happy.

It fits my basic style (half-sleeved tees, ftw), is a good length and simple enough to go with any number of pants/shorts/leggings to get good use out of it.

And then, it started. The itching. Dear lord, the fabric on this thing itches!

Now that I’m writing this, I realize it’s those guys at Loveappella again.

“Hey man, pregnant ladies aren’t like, constantly uncomfortable, right? Itchy fabric is NBD, right?”

“Totally. Totally NBD.”

If I’m going to drop money on a comfortable T-shirt, it needs to be that: comfortable. I couldn’t get this thing off fast enough.

Cost: $58. Verdict: Sent back.

Alright, before you think I’m just a big, pregnant hater, not everything went back.

The lone survivor from my first maternity fix was this pair of Kiley Maternity Ankle Zip Leggings, by Rune.

Oh hey there, fancy zipper.

Oh hey there, fancy zipper.

Again, it may be hard to tell in the picture, but they’re a deep navy (almost purple?) and the zipper detail is in gold. Seeing as how we’re coming up on fall – hooray! – and the supportive maternity waist on these means I’ll probably actually wear them post-partum to hold in all the jigglies, they seemed like a legit purchase.

Plus, since this box was free via a referral, the final cost was totally reasonable. And they’re super stretchy, thick and comfortable. Win, win, win.

Cost: $58 ($33 after $25 credit). Verdict: Kept!

Ultimately, this fix was a total mixed bag. Two things went back gladly, two more I’m a bit reluctant to put into the mailing envelope. But I just can’t justify the expense on something I know I won’t get much use out of, and unfortunately, I just don’t wear dresses all that often.

I was really hoping to see more inexpensive basics, considering the short lifespan of maternity clothing. I should probably update my style profile to reflect that.

My bad, Stitch fix; my bad.

Stitch Fix Review: Fix #3

Yep, I’ve been MIA so you’re getting two Stitch Fix reviews, back to back.

Last month, after I returned all five items from my last fix, Stitch Fix reached out to me and offered to waive the styling fee if I gave them another shot.

Didn’t have to ask me twice! I thought it was super generous of them to offer, so I jumped on the opportunity. And I’m glad I did — I managed to get a couple great items out of it!

A quick reminder for anyone not familiar, Stitch Fix is an online service where you set up a profile, pay $20 and have a personal stylist send you five curated items they think will suit your needs/wants. Once they arrive, you get three days to try things on, mix-and-match with items from your own closet, and decide what you want to keep. It’s super easy and, if you’re like me and hate to shop, easy is what you need when you need new clothes. Plus, referral links (like the ones in this post) get you $25 credit for each time someone orders a fix.

So now, onto the clothes.

For this fix, I opted not to get any jeans (or at least, didn’t specifically request them). Instead, I asked for fun, bright tops I could wear this spring. Specifically, I mentioned tank tops that I could layer to wear to work, or wear on their own for a night out.

First up, the Renesme Geo Print Faux Wrap Dress, from 41Hawthorn. In profile, I really liked this dress (despite the lame Twilight reference for a name). Hopes, you’re getting high.

Show me that side view, honey.

Aww, pretty dress.

And then, from the front … well. I mean. Isn’t the wrap part supposed to help define your waist? Why do I look so huge?!

Am I really that wide?

Am I really that wide?

While I loved the bright blue color and the geometric pattern, just really didn’t do me any favors. I felt like it was nowhere near as flattering as it should be, and for the price, just couldn’t justify the purchase. I think if the neckline were a little lower, or if there was something to break up the solid pattern, it may have ended differently for the two of us, but this one just wasn’t meant to be.

Cost: $78. Verdict: Sent back.

Next up, the Bowie Solid Dolman Sleeve Top from Laila Jade. This one I was pumped about as soon as I saw it in the box, because I loved the color and already have a couple shirts in this same style.

My camera is a fool. This is coral, not pink.

What do you mean, pick up the sweatshirt from the chair before you snap pictures?

And, I was right. I loved the way this top gives you a bit of space around the middle without being completely shapeless. It’s a nice, lightweight fabric for spring, too, so that’s definitely a bonus.

Cost: $58. Verdict: Kept!

Another item I really thought I was going to love when I first took it out of the box — this Phelan Blouse from Collective Concepts.

Whaaaat are those sleeves?

Whaaaat are those sleeves?

I was wrong. The sliky soft material and the fun print were not enough to excuse those horrific puffy sleeves. What is that about? And what about the cut of the shirt itself? It was strangely too large and too small at the same time — boxy around the middle but short in the length. There was no hemming and hawing about this one, it was definitely going back.

Cost: $68. Verdict: Sent back (with pleasure).

This next top kind of surprised me. It’s the Priya Abstract Floral Print Knit Back Tank (say that 10x fast) by Brixon Ivy.

Flowers. Because spring, obviously.

Flowers. Because spring, obviously.

Typically, I don’t wear many floral prints. I’m not really a girly-girl and they can often come off too frilly for my tastes. But this shirt, for whatever reason — the gray knit back panel? The abstract look to the flowers? — I actually really liked. It’s feminine without being in your face, and I love the bold colors in lieu of traditional pastels. It made for a pretty perfect Easter look, too, so timing was pretty good on this one.

Cost: $48. Verdict: Kept!

Finally, the last tank top in the box was the Fulham Embroidery Detail Top by RD Style. Once again, I knew I would want to keep it as soon as I pulled it out of the box, and I was right.

I'll keep this one, tank you very much.

I’ll keep this one, tank you very much.

Sure, it’s a little on the thin side, but for a fun, light, summery tank top I couldn’t resist. I love the neckline, and the super simple embroidery detail is spot on for my style. I can see this getting plenty of use for sunny days outside this spring and summer.

Cost: $48. Verdict: Kept!

Overall, this was a really solid fix. I wanted so badly to love that wrap dress, but knowing it wasn’t really a great fit for my figure and that I could likely find something better suited to my style for the price, I had to pass.

That blouse, though. That one couldn’t get out of my house fast enough.

If you’re interested in trying Stitch Fix, and if you’d like to see more reviews from me, I’d love for you to use the links in this post. These referral links do nothing to the price of your first fix, but they give me a $25 referral credit.

Everybody likes free money, right? Even when it goes to other people?

Stitch Fix Review: Fix #2

It’s time for another Stitch Fix review!

A quick reminder about what Stitch Fix is and how it works:

Stitch Fix, for those who don’t know, is an online service where you set up a profile, pay $20 and have a personal stylist send you five curated items they think will suit your needs/wants. Once they arrive, you get three days to try things on, mix-and-match with items from your own closet, and decide what you want to keep. If you keep anything, your $20 up front goes toward your final total; if you keep everything, you get a 25% discount on the entire box. It’s super easy and, if you’re like me and hate to shop, easy is what you need when you need new clothes. Plus, referral links (like the ones in this post) get you $25 credit for each time someone orders a fix.

Since I loved a couple items in my first fix, and because I had a referral credit in my account, I went ahead and ordered another. The three items I returned last time were more of a fit issue than a style issue (except that terrible mauve sweater), so I had high hopes for this box. When I opened it, I was excited to see they sent a couple casual tops, just like I asked.

There was also a really great pair of jeans I couldn’t wait to try on: Henry & Belle, Abana Coated Ankle Length Skinny Jean. The stylist card they included mentioned they should fit better than the last two they sent, so I had high hopes for these guys! Plus, they have this really great sort of metallic/shiny look to them that makes you feel a bit rocker when you put ’em on.

So shiny, so fancy.

So shiny, so fancy.

So like I said, high hopes. And they fit *almost* perfectly.

Super skinny skinnies

Super skinny skinnies

Yeah, my lighting is terrible. Whatever. Anyway, what you can’t see in this picture so much is that while they fit great through the hips and legs, the waist was a bit … tight. I’ve got a bit of dunlap (done-lapped over my belt!) going on here, and no one needs to see that muffin top.

Especially not at $114.

Cost: $114. Verdict: Sent back.

What you can also see in the above picture is one of the tops I was excited about: Market & Spruce, Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Tee.

Super soft, super comfy

Super soft, super comfy

Ugh. Muffin top, visible through that thin tee. Stupid jeans.

This shirt though. It was super comfortable, soft and a nice casual shirt you could wear just about anywhere. I liked the fact that it had a lower hem in the back, making it perfect to wear with leggings if you’re down with that sort of thing. The only downside here is that it feels a lot like some other shirts I own, and that I could probably find something similar if I wanted to for a lot less.

Cost: $44. Verdict: Sent back.

I can’t be too mad that the stylist found something that basically already exists in my wardrobe.

Speaking of which …

The Pixley Abriella Waffle Knit Cardigan, while awesome, is a near replica of a cardigan I already own. I probably actually like this one better, but I’m not trying to buy duplicates.

Exhibit A: The Pixley cardigan.

Such a great staple item!

Such a great staple item!

Exhibit B: Cardigan I already own, purchased at Old Navy like a year ago.

So great, in fact, I already own one.

So great, in fact, I already own one.

You see what I’m saying. Again, the stylist nailed my style, but since I already own something nearly identical, I’ll be passing on the cardigan.

Cost: $48. Verdict: Sent back.

I think you’re probably starting to see a pattern here, and unfortunately it continues. This cuff? Already own one.

Dorothy Layered Hammered Cuff, by Zad

Dorothy Layered Hammered Cuff, by Zad

So I guess, good job Makela for hitting my style on the head?

Well, almost. This shirt. What do I say about this shirt? It looked so cute in the box; the material so soft, the color nice and saturated, flowy like I like a lot of tops to be, and long enough in the back to pull it off with leggings.

Oh and also designed to make me look like a small house.

Pitchin' a tent up in hurr.

Pitchin’ a tent up in hurr.

Seriously. I know I made fun of my muffin top earlier, but in no way does this shirt help make things better. I look huge! My husband asked if there was a circus going on under this tent. I think the verdict is pretty clear; the only way I could see keeping this thing would be if I were in the market for maternity clothes.

I’m not.

Cost: $58. Verdict: Sent back.

So there you have it — I won’t be keeping anything from this fix, but mostly because I already own similar items. I’m also still trying to figure out the right size to ask for in jeans, but I’m not giving up hope on them. There’s something just so much better about trying jeans on at home, with your shirts and your shoes, that it’s worth trying again and again to get it right.

Better luck next time, Stitch Fix.

Stitch Fix Review: Fix #1

I suppose I need to join the cool kids and post a review about my experience with Stitch Fix, right? I’m a total newb in the Stitch Fix game and am terrible when it comes to fashion, but hey, why not write up an entire post about it?

Stitch Fix, for those who don’t know, is an online service where you set up a profile, pay $20 and have a personal stylist send you five curated items they think will suit your needs/wants. Once they arrive, you get three days to try things on, mix-and-match with items from your own closet, and decide what you want to keep. If you keep anything, your $20s up front goes toward your final total; if you keep everything, you get a 25% discount on the entire box. It’s super easy and, if you’re like me and hate to shop, easy is what you need when you need new clothes.

Make sense? Also, if you sign up through any of the links in this post, I’ll get a $25 credit without costing you anything extra, so that’s pretty awesome. OK — on to the fix.

First up: Ooh, how pretty!

Everything comes in a nice neat little package.

Such a nice, neat little package.

I had asked in my style profile for a big, oversized cardigan (hello, cold office), so seeing all the knits in this box was a good sign. Definitely off to a good start.

First up, this pink/mauve cable knit sweater.

Hmm... that's an interesting hem.

Hmm… that’s an interesting hem.

I was pretty skeptical about this one right away, considering I don’t typically look great in this style of sweater, and-plus-also, what was going on with that hem? But I tried it on anyway, and…

Nope. Big ol' nope.

Nope. Big ol’ nope.

Yeah, no. The fit on me was super frumpy, the little side flaps (I mean, what else would you call them?) we’re a little too weird for me. And since I decapitated myself in this pic you can’t tell, but the mauve doesn’t do much for my skin tone.

Cost: $68. Verdict: Sent back.

Next up, these super cute skinny jeans.

Ooh, fancy pocket zippers.

Ooh, fancy pocket zippers.

At first glance I really liked these jeans. They were super soft and I kinda liked the funky-ness of that zipper detail.

Look at me, following directions!

Look at me, following directions!

I took a cue from the style card and paired them up with a bold-colored top and some snakeskin flats. I liked the look a lot, but ultimately, the fit was a bit off.

Cost: $88. Verdict: Sent back.

Man, I really need some jeans though, and they sent me two pair. Next up, these wide-leg trouser jeans.

Gettin' fancy. Denim fancy.

Gettin’ fancy. Denim fancy.

In theory, I really liked these jeans. I like that they’re a little nicer than your average denim, and the creased front makes them more like a pair of trousers. Oh right, that’s why they’re called trouser jeans. Anywho.

Close, but no cigar.

Close, but no cigar.

For the most part, I really liked these jeans. I had a bit of an issue with how they fit around the waist (just a smidge too big). And for nicer jeans, I’d want them to be a bit longer so I could wear them with heels; these are just long enough on me for flats. Darn.

Cost: $78. Verdict: Sent back.

Now, before you go thinking I sent back everything, I saved the best two for last!

To infinity (scarf), and beyond!

To infinity (scarf), and beyond!

Let’s pretend I didn’t just caption it that.

This scarf was super cute, a bluish-green color that I don’t own much of, and so, so snuggly.

Fashion, yo.

Fashion, yo.

Paired with a simple tee and some jeans, we’re good to go!

Cost: $28. Verdict: Kept!

And finally, the cardigan I begged for requested!

Why hello, there.

Why hello, there.

I spent hours — nope, not exaggerating — trying to find this mystical cardigan. Something big, warm and soft I could wear to work. Our office is freezing, FREEZING, and I’m usually at my desk wearing gloves and a coat because none of my cardigans are heavy enough.

Boom. Nailed it.

Boom. Nailed it.

This scarf fits the bill. It’s super soft and warm enough to wear sans-coat, even now when it’s in the low 40s. There was no question, this one was a keeper.

Cost: $78. Verdict: Kept!

So there you have it, my very first Stitch Fix! I know I’ll definitely give it another go, as I loved the convenience of being able to try stuff on with what I already own, not to mention having someone else make the selection decisions for me.

Did I mention I hate shopping?

🙂
