So I tried Stitch Fix for the first time! I had a $20 credit for them in my PopSugar Box, and I thought it sounded really fun so I decided to give it a shot! Basically you create a profile with your taste and budget and body type and wants/needs and then a stylist looks over it and sends you a box based on your style preferences. I feel like my body type is a bit rare, so it’s hard to find clothes that fit me properly. REAL hard. I have really big shoulders, an average waist, and a bit butt. I’m SUPER curvy, so “flowy” clothes tend to look pretty dumpy on me. My go-to’s are things that fit snugly and are dark colors. That way they flatter and conceal me at the same time…. not that I claim to know anything about clothes… I can either pick and choose pieces to keep, keep it all for a discounted price, or choose to send it all back and eat the $20 styling fee.
I can’t decide what to do… except that I for sure don’t plan to keep it all. Help me decide???
Ok here we go: my first STITCHFIX box.
The first thing I saw was a envelope with a nice personal note 🙂
So here’s the first thing I tried on: plaid collared tank.
Here are my issues with it: too short, too thin, too see-through, and too tight through the top of the chest. It’s cute, and could be a very nice top to have if you could wear it on its own. BUt this would have to be for layering only since it’s so sheer. I know I’m sending it back for sure because I wouldn’t reach for it if I kept it.
I like the ruffle/pleat detail in the front. But it’s just a boxy black tank top… what do you think? Maybe it would be the kind of piece I would just go ahead and keep if I also loved everything else in the box in order to keep the discount.
This next piece is the one I am most “up in the air” about! It’s really pretty. I absolutely LOVE the color, but am not sure whether I’d wear this or not.
Yeah, it’s pretty see-through but I have tanks I could layer with it.
I always feel frumpy in button-ups…. Are they supposed to be worn tucked in??? Does anyone even know? I am clueless.
It’s very fun and flowy but I don’t really like the way the pleates poof out form the waist. It makes me feel like my hips are sticking out like saddlebags. I’ve been really wanting a skirt lately, though. I would keep it for sure if it was a brighter color and just a little bit shorter.
I didn’t like the way the back of it hung. It just kinda dropped off way too high. It made me feel super naked. Like I was dressed like winnie the pooh.
It was a really nice quality dress though…
What should I do? Send it all back? Keep the red top? Keep the purple skirt?
