Guys! I’m so excited! The other day, just out of the blue, this box showed up at my door!
Now, the name on the box was a bit off, so I chalked it up to an intern or something sending the box. And then I remembered these boxes aren’t sent out unless you’ve signed up and answered a ton of Stitch Fix’s questions online. I don’t remember ever signing up and filing out a style survey, although maybe I did and just forgot after one too many hard ciders?
I could only assume that after reading so many of my posts, the ladies at Stitch Fix felt they understood my style well enough to send this box of goodies along for me to try. And wow, just WOW! I was just blown away by their five hand-picked selections. Check it out!
Of course, I couldn’t wait to try everything on. Stitch Fix’s website says it will send notes on how to pair some of the items but that you are encouraged to match the new items to ones already in your closet. However, the only notes I received were a few fashion plate images which weren’t all that helpful (take note customer service!)
Typically, you have three days to try the items and then send back whatever you don’t like, but, since there was no return envelope, or heck, even a return address on the box, I guess I get to keep them all. (Could this be a bribe? Is Stitch Fix trying to win over my loyalty and that of my readers with lavish presents? Who knows, but I say bring it on!) I’m so excited to show you some of my new looks!
3. First I tried on the pink satin ball gown. Although it took some getting used to, the puffed sleeve and fitted bodice didn’t hold me back from my usual chores.
4. Then, I decided to accessorize with the monkey hat. I read they like to send items “outside you comfort zone” so I tried to be open-minded in giving it a try. I was really surprised at how much I liked the look.
5. As I hadn’t given any sizing information, I wasn’t surprised when this vintage Sponge Bob shirt came in a bit small. This is me, unable to lower my arms or take a deep breath. I happily passed the item onto my eight year old.
6. Next up, I tried the over-sized sweatshirt and large scarf as a wrap skirt. The Flash Dance shoulders inspired me to rock a side ponytail. For the record, I would not recommend dicing leftover chicken with those sleeves. Later, we made a fort under the front of my shirt. So versatile!
7. I scanned my closet for other pieces I could mix with my new acquisitions and came upon this great vintage dress of mine. Immediately I thought the scarf would make a great Mass head covering, or glamorous turban for a night on the town. I know Tony is stoked for our next date night. Clubbing in Philly or casinos in Atlantic City, I’m set to go!
I’d say my first Stitch Fix experience is one for the win column. At this point, I’m not sure if I should officially sign up or just wait for another surprise package. They did such a great job without my input, I’d hate to screw it up next time around.
While I’m rejoicing at my coming of age as a fashion blogger, you can swing back to Jen’s for more trendy takers. And click over to Stitch Fix if you want a package of your own….or don’t. Maybe they’ll surprise you too.
