My Fifth Stitch Fix!

I can't believe this is my fifth Stitch Fix delivery!

I get so excited when it's time for my fix to come in the mail--it's such a fun experience.  (In case you don't know, Stitch Fix is a clothing delivery service.  You pay a $20 styling fee, fill out lots of info about your style preferences and body type/size--you can even link up your Pinterest style board--and a Stitch Fix stylist picks out five pieces that she thinks you'll love.  You try them on, test them out with other pieces in your wardrobe, and send back the pieces you don't want in a prepaid bag that they include in your shipment.  Also, your $20 styling fee is applied toward any purchase that you make from your fix!)

I have been wearing a lot of skirts and dresses lately for a couple reasons: one, I needed a break from pants as my leg tattoo healed, and two, I have really enjoyed wearing cute clothes (and my husband apparently doesn't mind either).   I didn't know if they would or could, but this time, I asked my stylist to send me all dresses and skirts.  And she delivered! This was a super fun fix!

There were three dresses and two skirts.  These first two dresses are the pieces I decided not to keep.  The Laney Empire Waist Jersey Maxi Dress fit okay, but it was about three inches too long (with heels).  I feel like it was too expensive for being just a plain dress--I wish it had a print and was a more substantial material than jersey.  The second dress, the Daphne Scalloped Colorblock dress, fit really well actually.  However, it was polyester and lined, and I just didn't see myself wearing it very often during the humid Missouri spring and summer.

But I did keep three pieces!  Let's talk about this shift dress.  It's called the Wendle Embroidery Detail Shift Dress, and it's beautiful and fits like a dream. Apparently, shift dresses are my jam, and I need more of them in my wardrobe.  I also love love love the embroidery--I've been really attracted to embroidered details on clothing lately, so this dress was a total score.

This Jordanne A-line Skirt is a fun addition to my skirt collection.  The green color is amazing.  The fabric is just heavy enough to be worn into the fall and winter, but I can also wear it during warmer weather comfortably.

I also love skirts with bright prints, so this swing skirt is perfect!  The Kye Box Print Swing Skirt will go with a lot of tops that I already have.

I was so happy that they accommodated my request for all skirts and dresses.  I've really enjoyed getting these fixes.  My husband even commented the other day that he thought it was cute that I got so excited about them.  Awe!

If you want to try it out, you can use my referral link (click here), and I will get a credit when you get your first fix.  Then YOU can share your own referral link with your friends to get credit for your own Stitch Fix addiction. 

What do you think of these pieces?  Would you have kept the same ones?

  1. This is sucha great idea- I love living vicariously through your fixes :) I keep thinking of trying it myself, but I'm worried I'd keep everything they ever sent!
