So I have officially joined the Stitchfix fan club after receiving my first fix last week. As a working mom of two young babies, it's increasingly difficult for me to get to the store to find nice quality clothing for myself. Especially considering my current wardrobe limitations (breastfeeding friendly, accommodating for my post baby/softer body shape), looking for new clothes feels more like a chore, and often a frustrating one, than a fun hour to myself. Enter Stitchfix! A collection of clothing chosen for me by a personal stylist based on a survey and information I gave them when I signed up. What a fun idea!
I payed my $20 and waited for my fix. I won't lie I was not patient and may have checked the tracking site like a lunatic and squealed in joy when I saw it was out for delivery!
This box on my doorstep made me very happy :)
I opened it up to find 5 tops, which is exactly what I wanted because my bottom half is still in baby recovery mode and is a different size seemingly everyday.
There was a set of cards, one for each piece, with style suggestions on how you could wear your items, and also a personalized note from my stylist on why she chose the items she did, specifically mentioning comfort and ease of breastfeeding. Thanks Angie, those are my most important criteria!
Here are the items from my first Fix:
1. Ombré Magenta Sweater - $48
This sweater was so pretty! The color was vibrant, the cutouts added such a cool extra something to it, and the knit material was soft and delicate. Unfortunately, with 2 grabby kids and Velcro cloth diapers, I would undoubtedly snag this beauty and ruin it in the first day. In fact I was worried just trying it on!
2. Mixed material printed tshirt - $44
This was a lightweight, very soft tshirt material in a heather grey front and a gorgeous pattern on the back. Seriously, look how fun the blues, pinks and tans are!
I loved this shirt, it is so my style it almost hurt to put it back in the box, BUT I already have several tops in this shape made from sturdier materials that I've gotten for less than $20 and the $44 price tag was just too much for me for a tshirt.
3. Turquoise cross back tshirt - $54
Again, I loved this shirt. The material was thick and soft. Almost luxurious. The button details on the back and sleeves were so fun. The cutouts were well lined up to cover up even my intense nursing bra straps, which is quite a feat! The little bit of white peeking out is the tag attached to the shirt.
The cut of this shirt flattered my body by minimizing my chest size and hiding my post baby belly, although it did hug my back chub a little bit more than I liked.
4. Cross front high low top - $45
This is a piece that was a bit out of my comfort zone, but I liked the pattern. The fit was way off with the high being too high and the low being not quite low enough. It looked almost like a crop top on me and just didn't work with my body type.
5. Chevron TCEC cardigan - $58
I'm a sucker for an open cardigan! Something I can wear with jeans or leggings, and switch what I wear underneath for a completely different look? Sign me up!
This one had a sturdy knit material, so no concerns about snags. The neutral colors make it extremely versatile. I loved how it was "chevron" without being "CHEVRON" if you know what I mean (pattern overload!)
The price was a little more than I would usually spend on something like this but it is well made and I know I will wear it a lot! Plus I already spend $20 that would go towards my purchase, so that made the $58 price tag into a $38 price tag and made the purchase easier.
Overall, I'm really happy with my first Stitchfix and can't wait to do it again! I'll probably sign up to do it once every 2-3 months just because it can be an expensive treat, but I loved the experience and really look forward to what Angie has in store for me next time!
