Three cheers, it’s Stitch Fix day!
I usually don’t closely track when my fix ships and is scheduled to arrive, but for some reason I was bursting this month to receive my box (probably because it’s been three or four months since my last one thanks to our big move). I totally cheated and snooped on my box online on the “checkout” page to see what I was getting, and I was admittedly a little disappointed at what was heading my way. A couple of things jumped out at me as “maybes”, but otherwise I was prepared to stuff the bag and send most (if not all of it) back.
Well, well, well. Joke’s on ME because guess who kept her whole box this time around?!
*insert me jumping up and down like a fool waving frantically with a big, cheesy smile on my face*
Not only do I have five new items hanging in my closet that I loooooove, but each item came out to only $37 each! Considering the exceptional quality and immense convenience of this “shopping trip”, I’d call this box a total win. And by immense convenience, I mean that I’m not trying on clothes in a dressing room while the girls play Hide and Seek on the nasty dressing room floor or while Sadie laughs and yells “Mommy naked!!!” Oy. Can’t make this stuff up. I digress…
Let’s check out what my stylist sent along this month!
Stitch Fix Review – May 2018
41 Hawthorn Breysen Pleated Detail Blouse
These two items – the blouse and the denim shorts – were two items I was sure that I would send back once I saw them on the checkout page on the Stitch Fix website. I wasn’t crazy about the top, and I didn’t really want/need a pair of cuffed denim shorts (not super flattering on me). But once I tried them on, I was all “Oh shoot, I kind of love these!”
I have a similar top like this from a previous fix, and I wear it constantly. In the winter I wear it with a cardigan over it. In the warmer months, I wear it as is. Like the top above, it’s feminine, casual, but can also be dressy depending on how I style it. I also love that it’s conservative enough to wear to church but trendy enough to wear out with friends. On the night I got it, I wore it during a video call with other bloggers, and I immediately got a compliment on it from my friend Chelsea. I wore it again yesterday, and Jamie’s grandmother immediately gasped when she saw it and said how pretty she thought it was. Good thing I’d already checked out online, because this baby is mine to keep. 😉
Tinsel Shyla Denim Short
And these shorts! They are so (so!) comfy. I very rarely call shorts “comfy”, but these deserve the title. Mark my words: you’ll see these shorts on me a ton this summer. (And let me go ahead and cross off “find new pair of everyday shorts” from my ongoing to-do list.)
French Grey Liska Brushed Knit Maxi Dress
I was intrigued by this maxi dress when I saw it online, and sure enough I am tickled pink by it! If you own any LuLaRoe leggings, you know how everyone calls them buttery soft? This dress has the exact same feel, except it’s just a tad thicker (and that’s a good thing!). It’s flouncy and hits at all the right place. I love the subtly cinched waist and how it hits at just the right place at my ankles (it’ll be perfecto with some wedges; I’m barefoot in these pics!)
This is my third maxi dress from Stitch Fix, and I’m pretty sure I’ll wear it as often as I still wear my other two. At 5’4″ with short legs, I cannot for the life of me figure out how they nail the lengthy every time. How?!
Jolie Wakulla Cold Shoulder Dolman Knit Top
This next top will be so great for the fall, and I’m keeping it because I know that! Sometimes I don’t initially fall in love with basics like this because they’re just that: basic.
As far as my realistic lifestyle and wardrobe needs go, what do I usually wear six days a week? Basics. We all know I dig the cold shoulder trend, so this top feels like a basic with just a little pop of something special.
Articles of Society White Cuffed Skinny Jean
And about these white jeans. I like them a lot. They fit perfectly, but I don’t really need them since I have another pair I wear regularly. Here’s the thing with Stitch Fix though. If you keep the whole box, you get 25% off of everything. Talk about a deal! If I kept everything except for these white pants, my total would have only been $6 cheaper than it would have been if I kept these pants. I considered sending something else back too, but I really wanted to keep everything else.
So, I have a new pair of white jeans for the closet. 🙂 My other pair is three years old, so they’re probably getting a little worn out anyway. Gracious knows that if I went out searching for another perfect pair of white jeans, I’d never be able to find a pair, so having a second pair that I love is a-okay with me!
Treat yo’self to your first fix!
- Create a profile.
- Schedule your first fix.
- You’ll be charged $20 when your box ships.
- Pick what you want to keep from your box, and then put everything else back in the prepaid USPS bag.
- Go back online to your Stitch Fix profile and check out. The $20 you already paid will be deducted from your total, so if the shirt you want to keep is $35, you’ll only pay $15. If you send all five items back, you’ll lose your $20. You best bet is to fill out your profile as accurately as you can because then you’re almost guaranteed to love at least one thing in your box.
- Hang new item(s) in your closet and feel your confidence boost the first time you wear it out and about. 🙂
What is Stitch Fix?
Stitch Fix is a stop-anytime apparel subscription service that sends customers five pieces of clothing and accessories once a month (or more or less depending on one’s preferences) based on price points that one designates in his or her profile. Stitch Fix stylists hand-pick what to send each customer based on one’s online profile created upon sign up. Customers are charged a $20 styling fee upfront per shipment, but the styling fee is later applied to any item(s) the customers chooses to keep. If one chooses to send back all five items, Stitch Fix keeps the $20 fee. A customer’s best bet is to keep at least one item since $20 has already been paid. Stitch Fix also includes a prepaid bag to send all unwanted items back. If a customer chooses to keep all five items, he or she gets a whopping 25% discount off of the entire box. So awesome!
Stitch Fix offers services for men! We gave this a try for Jamie back in November when his box was free, and we liked it! He kept two items. He got his second box in January and has worn the polo he kept so many times already! My brother also tried it, and he said it’s really boosted his confidence. He plans to receive one box per month to slowly increase his professional attire (he is single and hates to shop, so this is beyond perfect for him). Jamie plans to continue getting fixes once per month in hopes of adding one (maybe two) items per month to his professional wardrobe. This service for men is so underrated! So fabulous.

Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother in today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to two little girls (ages 5 and 2) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
