Stitch Fix February 2015

I am so excited that today I got my first Stitch Fix box!! I had heard about it a while ago, but I didn't want to make the commitment. Then I found out that you can do it one time and schedule later shipments as your schedule and budget allow! So let's dive right in!
My box arrived this afternoon (in the middle of a ton of snow & ice, by the way) and I couldn't hardly wait to open it! When you get the box, it comes with a pre-paid return envelope for you to return the clothes you don't want. It also has a little envelope that includes cards with styling ideas as well as the list of how much your items cost. I chose to look at those cards and info after opening and trying on all my clothes so that I could get my unbiased opinion on the clothes before I looked at prices!
Liverpool Shania Stitched Detail Jeans
I had requested a new pair of jeans because I've been looking for another pair I love as much as my Express Stella Ankle Skinny jeans! They sent this pair of Liverpool Shania Stitched Detail Jeans. I have them on in every picture. I liked them a lot! They were stretchy and comfortable! My only issue was that they came up a little higher on my waist than I usually prefer to wear my jeans. I wore them around for a few minutes because I was hoping I would be okay with it, but I just wasn't once I saw the price. They were in the $50-75 range and while I'm not opposed to jeans at that price, I have to really love them and these I just didn't love enough.

Market & Spruce Yuna Chevron Pointelle Knit Sweater
Everything else in my box was from a brand called Market & Spruce and I honestly loved their products. They have great fabrics and they were really comfortable and fit really well! So I had to just decide how much I liked everything. First I tried on the Yuna Chevron Pointelle Knit Sweater. It was definitely really comfortable, but I just didn't love the fit of it. You can see in the picture that it was a little see-through at the top and I didn't like that I would have to be careful about what I wore under it. I also wished it was a little more loose and over-sized in cut. I knew I wasn't keeping it even before I checked the price.

Market & Spruce Aleah Heathered V-Neck Dolman Top
This is the item that had me going back and forth. I loved the cut, style and fit. It was super comfortable and I could see myself wearing it a lot! I wanted to keep it! But at the $25-50 price range, I just didn't feel good about keeping it when I have several shirts that look very similar.
Status: Returned (Reluctantly)

Market & Spruce Corinna Striped Dolman Top
This was a perfect example of why you should try everything on when it comes in your box! I wasn't sure I would love this one, but then when I put it on, it was just so comfortable and flattering! It's a really soft material and it fits a little more loose everywhere, which is how I prefer my shirts. I can see it going well with a lot of my jewelry and shoes, so it seemed perfect! I also don't really have anything in that color! It was in the $25-50 price range, but it seemed well worth it!
Status: Kept

Market & Spruce Carly Graphic Print Cardigan
This was my absolute favorite thing in the box!! It is so warm, comfortable & soft!! I knew as soon as I pulled it out of the box that if it fit me at all I would be keeping it. You just can't go wrong with a great cardigan! I love the tribal print and seriously, Market & Spruce is a new favorite brand! I was disappointed to see that this was in the $50-100 price range, but I loved it so much and I had already ruled out enough other things that my overall purchase still fit within the budget I had set for myself.
Status: Kept!

Overall I found the whole experience with Stitch Fix to be extremely fun, convenient & rewarding! I found some brands I never would've found otherwise. Everything was in my exact size, based on the specific measurements I gave them when I signed up. I felt like the stylist had definitely taken my style into account. She even mentioned having looked at my Pinterest page to get ideas! I will definitely be scheduling another box sometime soon!

If you are at all interested in trying out Stitch Fix, I would definitely check them out!
