When I scheduled a StitchFix to arrive days before my 37th birthday, I thought it was a pretty great idea. Happy Birthday to me!
I loved everything about the timing of this fix, ladies–Especially the happy birthday message from my stylist, Alexandra. She included pieces perfect for celebrating my 37th year. These clothes make me feel young–and age appropriate at the same time.
Want to see what was inside?
First up is the Rho Twist Front Dress from Under Skies.
I did not break out the iron like I should have…but my husband was my fashion photog and getting him to do this was already like pulling teeth, so pretend the dress is wrinkle free.
What I loved: The color. The dress is forgiving around the waistline. It was lined–a nice addition.
What I didn’t love so much: It is not wrinkle free. It was probably one size too big. The weight of the dress and the cotton stretch fabric made the dress sag a little around the arms and bust–it might have been better in a size down.
I did not keep it. What do you think–did I make a mistake?
Next a casual outfit that includes the Corinne Striped Knit Tank from Olive & Oak and the Finnegan Roll Cuff Denim Short from Dear John. I can’t wait to wear this for our Father’s Day Picnic. Alexandra was inspired by an outfit I had pinned to my wardrobe board:
What I didn’t love: My fear about the top not washing well. I am not the most conscientious laundress…so I’m afraid of what might happen to the top if it gets run through the drier on the wrong setting. I guess only a few wash cycles will tell.
I kept the whole outfit–would you?
Finally, another dress from Under Skies: The Rubie Cap Sleeve Mixed Print Sheath Dress paired with Stephanie Beaded Drop Earrings from Zad.
When I put on this dress my girls started calling me “Becky G”. Hardly!
Maybe Becky G’s mom. Ha!
Here I am channeling my inner Disney Diva:
What I loved: This dress! I would not have picked this dress out for myself, but it felt great and looked good. The earrings were a perfect match for the dress as well.
What I didn’t love: The earrings. I mean I loved the look of them and the idea of them. BUT..I hardly ever wear earrings. I noticed even in the short time that I had them on that my lobes got a little irritated. I know I will regret sending them back…but I didn’t keep them.
I kept the dress.
Overall, StitchFix Three was impressive. My stylist delivered exactly what I asked for–great summer casual pieces and dresses for celebrating my 37th. I was tempted to keep all five pieces and snag that 25% discount–if the first dress had fit perfectly that is exactly what I would have done!
Are you ready to give StitchFix a try yet? I would LOVE it if you used my referral code to give it a shot.*
And for those of you asking about prices:
I’m going to shoot straight with you. The individual pieces are more expensive than I would find if I took a jaunt over to the local mall. The price tags are larger then I would expect to pay–cheapskate that I am (I chose the least expensive price bracket).
However, a jaunt to the mall is not really a jaunt. And if you are a mom, you know that.
Also, items picked specifically for me, to fit MY size, my style; Delivered right to my door to be tried on in the comfort of my home? Can you put a price tag on that? I can’t–it is well worth it.
The pieces are unique. It’s completely enjoyable and easy. I’m not obligated to keep anything and for just a $20 styling fee (that is credited back to me if I purchase something from my fix) I really think it manageably fits into my budget. I have not shopped in a store for clothes in over six months. This is a perfect way to add a few new pieces to my wardrobe each season.
With the three pieces I kept, I ended up paying less than $50 per piece. Had I kept all five it would have worked out to roughly $35 per piece with the discount. I can handle that expense every couple of months and that’s how I schedule my fixes — 4 to 6 times a year.
I can’t wait to hear how you love it! Let me know how it goes.
*I was not paid to share my fix with you–I did it because it is fun. If you use my referral link to schedule your first fix I will be thanked with a $25 credit. And for that, I thank you!
