Stitch Fix #1 – What I Got & What I Kept

Stitch Fix review with a beautiful statement necklace and a sleeveless teal top! Love it!Well, who’s excited??

I am!

I received my first Stitch Fix a few weeks ago, and have been so excited to share it all with you! If you don’t know what Stitch Fix is, let me quickly explain:

You tell a stylist what you like in clothes and accessories. That stylist picks out 5 items they think you would like (or maybe push you out of your comfort zone a little) and sends you a box. You try on the clothes, at home, with your existing wardrobe. Keep and pay for what you want, return what you don’t.

I didn’t expect an 100% winning box right out the gate, but most of the items were really great! I did, however, return all but 1 item. But I’m not disappointed!

Let’s just get right down to the items, shall we? I’ve got prices, close up shots and outfit pictures of each piece.

1. Fun2Fun Sheridan Striped V-Neck Tab Sleeve Blouse – $48 – RETURNED

Stitch Fix #1 Review from Cup of Tea Blog

I know why I got sent this shirt. I mentioned I love stripes and loose shirts with details. So this fit the bill! I really liked the shoulder detail on this shirt, and you can never go wrong with stripes! But this shirt was a bit too slouchy for me, and the arms looks baggy too. So, I returned it. (And look! Blurry picture! Camera must have decided to focus on something else instead…)

2. Loveappella Devon Pleated Mini Skirt – $38 – RETURNED

Stitch Fix #1 Review from Cup of Tea Blog

This was a really easy skirt – stretchy, comfortable, and navy! But, at the end of the day, it was a tad too short and lightweight (could see a little gust of wind blowing it up) and bubbled out at my tushy. But I love that pleated detail in the front! It really is adorable. If it was a tad longer (it hit me above the knee), I would have kept it!

3. Mavi Zoola Denim Top – $74 – RETURNED

Stitch Fix #1 Review from Cup of Tea Blog

There were a few things wrong with this top. First, is $74 for a denim shirt with snaps…. I have a similar one hanging in my closet from Target, complete with snaps. Second, as already stated, I have more than my share of chambray/denim tops. Not Stitch Fix’s fault, but still, didn’t need another one. And third, it just didn’t fit well. It just didn’t snap over the twins and the hips. But I did like the fading!

4. Collective Concepts Esten Button-Up Sleeveless Blouse – $54 – KEPT IT!
Stitch Fix #1 Review from Cup of Tea Blog

Yay! A winner! This ticked so many wonderful boxes. It was lightweight and loose, but not too loose. I love the color of this! Not to mention the fact that it’s not so sheer that I have to wear a cami under it (that gets old in the summer time). And love that the v-neck isn’t too deep. Since I didn’t have a shirt in that color, I thought it was a keeper. The perfect shirt for dressing up or down!

5. Romolo Monet Mini Facet Bib Necklace – $38 – RETURNED

StitchFixNecklace

This necklace was a surprise! It’s so pretty – I love the colors in it. And the shape is different – love a bib necklace! But, I returned it because I have a necklace pretty darn similar to it, so figured I didn’t really need it… But isn’t it pretty with that teal top?

So that’s it! Stitch Fix #1 in the bag! I’m not ready to do a full review of it just yet, because it’s not fair to judge something on the first try, but so far, pretty happy! For my next box, I asked to see more skirts, preferably longer and maybe even patterned. We shall see!

    The blouse is such a win on you! Looks just lovely with your complexion. Good for you being particular about what you chose to keep. I think I’d be tempted to keep it all since I haven’t gone shopping in ages!

      Thank you! And it was tempting, because most of the pieces I liked! There was just something a little wrong… But I agree – I love that color!

  2. Whitney says:

    You look lovely in these colors! I agree with your keeps – you definitely picked the items that seemed like you. I love the variety and I’ve heard that the more specific your feedback, the better your next fix is. I’d love to give it a try one day 🙂

    This is a great idea! You would look great in anything, though, I’m sure!!
    Can you please come and dress me? I can’t get out of my yoga pants!

    I love Stutch Fix. I think I’m on my 8th one. I generally only keep 1-2 items, but I still love it.

    Your face in the denim shirt is too funny! The teal blouse you kept is a really flattering color for you!
