Ok.  I’m freaking out.  For two reasons.  I got my first Stitch Fix in the mail last week and I love it.  Second, I’m showing my mug on here for the first time ever.  I don’t know why that is so freaky to me, but it is.  Here goes.

My First Stitch Fix - Pros Cons and Pieces

So, what is Stitch Fix? Stitch Fix is the Fairy Godmother to your Cinderella.  Except you don’t get a ball gown, you get five adorable fashion pieces (tops, pants, accessories, dresses, skirts) that are chosen just for you based on a pretty in depth style and size profile that you complete.  Your Stitch Fix stylist will even look at outfits you’ve pinned or posted to other social media to get a solid idea of what you like.

So here’s what I got:Navy Blue Shirt - Stitch Fix


So, Hi! That’s me. Nice to finally meet you.  The navy blue shirt is the first piece from my Stitch Fix box.  I love it because it is a classic with a little bit of an edge.  The mesh v neck and sleeves are interesting and a little sassy while still being work appropriate.  I should note that on the part of the style profile that asked about what body parts you like to show off, I listed none.  So my fix should be pretty conservative.  Yours doesn’t have to be!

These black pants might not look like much in this picture.  I mean, who needs a stylist to pick out black pants for them?  I do, apparently.  And you might too.  I would not in one million years have ever picked these out.  Out of the box, they look slim fitting and they are slim fitting and that is not a silhouette this curvy girl would go for.  Ever.  But these pants are magic.  They are slimming and comfortable.  I got lots of compliments on them.  I would wear them every day if there wasn’t a stigma attached to wearing the same clothes every day in this country.  As it is, I wore them Monday and I’m wearing them again on Thursday.  If that is wrong, I don’t want to be right.

Black Pants - Stitch Fix (1)

My favorite piece in the box is this asymmetrical zip sweatshirt/cardigan.  I’ve worn this like 5 out of the 7 days I’ve owned it.  No lie.

Grey Cardigan - Stitch Fix

I love it open with the drapey effect.

And I really love it zipped.  And the material is the most comfortable thing you’ve ever worn.  For real.

Chevron Shirt - Stitch Fix

When I took this chevron shirt out of the box I was underwhelmed.  I didn’t like the colors and it just didn’t wow me.  Then I put it on and I realized the colors are great on me AND this magical shirt made my stomach disappear!  Holy What?  I adore this shirt.  Again the material is cozy.  It’s flattering, but I feel well covered in it. Like, I’m not worried if I move the wrong my I’m going to reveal some cleavage or tummy, know what I mean??

Earrings - Stitch Fix


These earrings were the accessory piece in my fix and I like them.  I wouldn’t normally pick them out and I definitely WOULD NOT spend more than maybe $8 on them in a store.  They were a lot more expensive than that from Stitch Fix, but I’ll explain why I kept them in the Pros and Cons section to follow.  I want to mention first how bizarre it is to see my face that close up.  Ask me some day about why my smile is crooked.  It’s kind of a good story.  Yes, go back and look at all of the pictures again and check out how crooked it is.  Weird, right?

So, pros and cons of Stitch Fix:


Love the Clothes

Fit was great on every piece

The quality of the clothes/material seems good.

The stylist really nailed what I would like, even better than I can do!

Access to labels I don’t see very often.

Prepaid postage and packaging for returns

You can earn a $25 credit if you refer a friend and they make a purchase!


The expense.  My entire fix ended up at $200.  For five pieces, this is way more than I normally spend.  There is a $20 style fee that is deducted from your total if you purchase at least one piece and you receive a 25% discount if you buy all five pieces.  This is why I kept the earrings.  I would have ended paying more if I didn’t keep them.  I’m still working out whether or not it’s worth the expense.  I think I’ll need to see how the clothes hold up over time (I’m guessing they will hold up well, based on the material).  If you want to try a less expensive alternative, try a ThredUp Goody Box!

That’s it.  That’s the only con.

I’m totally hooked and I can’t wait to order another Fix.  I’d love it if you use my referral link to check out Stitch Fix:
