Have you tried Stitch Fix yet?? Stitch Fix is a personal styling service that sends you hand picked items in the mail to try on. It’s pretty awesome. You create a style profile, or even a Pinterest board to send to your stylist, and they select clothes that they think you will like. After you receive the package in the mail you are given a few days to try on the clothes and you send back anything you don’t want. Your stylist gets to know your style over time and therefore selects better items for you the more times you get a ‘fix”.

There is a $20 styling fee, but it becomes credit toward any item of clothing you want to purchase -and if you decide to purchase all 5 items you receive 25% off of the total purchase! You have about 3 days to decide what you would like to keep and then you check out online – so you aren’t charged for any of the clothing until you check out. They also include an easy pre-paid shipping bag that makes it very convenient to ship any unwanted clothes back.

To be honest, I was a bit skeptical about the service when I first heard about it – I mean how well could someone style me via the internet? But I read so many great reviews from bloggers and even friends I knew personally that I decided to give it a shot. I also really liked the idea of expanding my style beyond my usual stores and trying on clothes I might not choose for myself. I figured I could always send everything back if it didn’t work out.

My first Stitch FIx came in the mail this week and arrived on my doorstep in this adorable box.

It arrived with five items for me to try on: Jeans, a dress, a necklace, a dressier top, and a casual top. I was surprised at how much the items matched my style! I knew right away that my stylist, Christine, had reviewed my Pinterest board. Right when I saw the dressier top and necklace I knew I would be keeping them, but I wasn’t sure about the jeans. I couldn’t imagine that jeans from the mail would fit on the first try – but they did and I really like the way that they fit!

She also sent a card explaining why she sent the items to me and cards with styling recommendations for each piece.

I ended up keep the jeans, the dressier top, and the necklace. I sent back the casual top just because I didn’t really like it and the dress because it’s cut didn’t look great on my body type. Honestly I expected to send back more items on my first ‘fix’ and was shocked that I kept three items!

Aren’t they cute? I am actually wearing all three pieces as I am typing this. Here is a photo of what the clothes look like on me. I am not a style blogger so putting up this photo is a bit out of my comfort zone, but I thought you might want to actually see what the items looked like on. Thanks to Sarah for snapping these photos of me in my doorway (it’s been raining for days here in DC!)
