I received a credit to try Stitch Fix as a result of this promotion. By posting this review I am entering a contest sponsored by Stitch Fix and am eligible to win a prize. I was not compensated for my time. This post contains affiliate links.
When I first learned about it, Stitch Fix sounded too good to be true. Being a tall woman means shopping for clothes is not always the easiest (or most enjoyable) task – most trips to the dressing room have me carrying in the maximum amount of items allowed, and it’s rare that even just one of them fits right and looks good on me. So an online stylist who’s never seen me? I was skeptical.
But then the Recipe ReDux gave us the opportunity to try it out, and I jumped at the chance! A redux doesn’t always need to be about food, after all! Stitch Fix designed for you to get fashion pieces based on an extensive profile of your measurements, style preferences, pattern likes and dislikes, which articles of clothing you’re looking for, and even what you’re trying to dress for (ex: professional clothes for work, fancy clothes for date nights, casual clothes for every day wear, etc.)
For $20, you’re assigned a personal stylist upon completing your profile. You get to pick when you’d like to receive your Stitch Fix shipment – a collection of five items picked out specifically to match all of your needs and wants. I received mine five business days after filling out the profile – pretty darn quick for someone starting from scratch with what I might like to wear! Over time, as you order more fixes, and return the items you’re not interested in, your stylist becomes better at picking out pieces she’s confident you’ll love.
So what did my stylist pick out for my first fix? Let’s see:
This adorable 41Hawthorn Sugar Dot Print Dress is SO me. It fits perfectly, and can totally be paired with any of my solid colored cardigans for an easy, yet professional work outfit!
A lightweight Pixley Wheeler Kimono is a great way to provide a bit of coverage without weighing you down in the warm weather. I layered this over a plain white tank with jean shorts – an outfit I could throw on for Sunday morning brunch on the balcony (sunglasses and Bloody Mary optional!).
This Pixley Lartia Handkerchief Hem Maxi Dress would be the perfect laidback outfit for farmer’s market visits. There are quite a few near me, on both Saturday and Sunday mornings. It’s fun to check them all out and support the local growers and producers. I found a local artisan single-source chocolatier last month, who I now love!
Milwaukee has a festival every weekend, and weekdays are populated with free outdoor concerts of all music genres. It’s a great time to explore the city, and this Renee C Radka V-Neck Blouse is just the style to match! Denim shorts, sandals, and my smallest over-the-shoulder purse complete the look for traveling light from festival to festival.
All the good bars and restaurants have outdoor seating around here, so happy hour is a great time to get fresh air while catching up with your friends. This Le Lis Polli Lace Detail Knit Top is chic yet muted, and goes perfectly with denim shorts or jeans, sandals, and delicate gold jewelry.
This was such a fun opportunity – a package in the mail is always welcome, especially when it’s a package of clothes picked just for you! It was also a lot of fun pairing my fix pieces with my wardrobe and setting up a fashion shoot around my house. Thanks to the boyfriend for playing photographer!
