Stitch Fix #1

I got my first Stitch Fix today!!  How glorious to have clothes delivered to me that I didn't even have to shop for.  Someone shopped for me, shipped them to me, and sent a postage-paid envelope in case I wanted to send any back.  Brilliant.


Monica was my first stylist, and she did a great job.  She had obviously studied my Pinterest page, which she referenced in her note, and each of the 5 pieces in my box had something about them that I liked - polka dots, knit cotton, embroidery, etc.

The first top (I had specifically asked to have a box focused on tops first) was the Sweet Rain "Ryan" tank ($48):

The embroidery - including a row on back - was cute, and it was really soft, but I didn't like the ruffled shoulders and it gave me no shape whatsoever.  Sending it back.

Next up, Market and Spruce's "Memphis" shirt ($58):

Loved this!  SO soft, and it fit like a comfortable t-shirt, but has the prettiest lace overlay (front and back).  Hand wash only, which I dislike, but I love it enough to overlook that inconvenience.  Keeping!

Next up, Kut From The Kloth's "Somerville" top ($28):

No.  Just no.  As soon as I put this on, before I saw myself in the mirror, Jamie grimaced.  I wasn't a fan of the print right off, but it has a knit back and a cute pocket.  On me, though?  Completely shapeless.  Sending it back.

The last top in the bunch was Pomelo's "Tracy" top ($58):

Polka dots!  This was great.  Super comfy knit, awesome print, and a shape I normally wouldn't have picked out with the wide neck, slight criss-cross detail on the back, and seeming shapeless-ness.  Once on, though, there's a surprising amount of shaping around the waist, and it got a surprised, "I like it!" from Jamie.  Keeping!

The last item in the box was a necklace from Nashelle called the "Shayla" pendant ($54):

I really liked it, though I usually go for silver instead of gold (as Monica, the stylist, acknowledged in her note), but I can't spend that amount on jewelry right now.  Sending it back.

Overall, a great experience!!  I can't wait for my next one!
