Trying Out Stitch Fix

Stitch Fix. Have you tried it? So many bloggers that I know share about their fixes on a regular basis, so I figured I would give it a try.

What is Stitch Fix? It's a styling service. You fill out a style profile including your sizes and then request a fix! Each fix costs a $20 styling fee. Once your fix arrives to you, you have three days to decide what to keep or send back. The $20 styling fee is applied to the cost of the item(s) you choose to purchase. Then, you fill out a feedback form online, check out with the item(s) you decide to keep, and send the rest back in a prepaid mailer. If you keep all five items, you get a 25% discount.

Today I wanted to share my first fix with you and get your thoughts on what I should keep!

So, here's a peek at what I got! 3 tops, 1 scarf, and a pair of jeans.

The first top I tried on is the DANIEL RAINN Cassiel Pleated Detail Blouse ($68) along with the LIVERPOOL Elizabeth Super Skinny Jean ($78). 

I hear people over and over again say Stitch Fix jeans are the best fitting jeans they've found, and I have to admit these ones are pretty great. They have a stretchy waist which mimics my old maternity jeans and they fabric is so soft. I really like them for the most part, but I'm not a huge fan of the fact that the front pockets are not functional pockets. One pro to the waistband being elastic is that there's not going to be a button or tab showing under tops. 

I really like the top, too. Most of the flowy tops I have like this are solid colors, so the pattern adds a little something different. I feel like it's pretty flattering, too.

These are probably the two pieces I'm debating keeping.

The next top I tried on was the STACCATO Traci Elbow Patch Hooded Knit Top ($54). 

This top is so soft. It has stripes. It has elbow patches, but I just can't get over the fact that it has a hood. I really don't like tops with hoods unless it's an actual sweatshirt. If this piece didn't have a hood, it would probably be kept.

The last top I tried on was the RD STYLE Rowca Scoop Neck Pull Over Sweater ($68) along with the LOOK BY M Alpine Plaid Wrap Scarf ($38). 

I feel like the sweater is pretty basic, but it does fit really well. I already have a scarf similar to the one above, though it's a blanket scarf, not a wrap scarf like this one. If I really liked all the pieces in the fix, I would definitely keep the scarf to get the whole fix discount. 

The fix also came with styling cards for suggestions on how to style the items, which I love. I just got a faux fur vest, so that kind of draws me to keep the pleated blouse and style it with that. 

So, my overall thoughts on Stitch Fix is that it is great for people who don't like to shop. It's nice to have  someone else shop for you, have it all delivered to your house, and have suggestions on how to wear things. I don't think I will be a frequent Stitch Fix user just because I like to shop, I like to find things on sale, and I'm pretty good about putting things together myself. I honestly wish I could be a Stitch Fix Stylist because I think I would rock at it! So many people have asked me to come dress them or give them styling ideas. Maybe some day I will be able to be a Stitch Fix Stylist or find a way to  do something similar on my own. I do think I will request another fix sometime in the future just because it's fun to have someone else shop for me.

So, I need your help. I want to keep one piece. Which should I keep? The jeans? The pleated blouse? Or do you think I should keep something else? I have to return it today, so let me know your thoughts in the comments.
