Treat Yourself Tuesday: My first Stitch Fix!

Linking up with Becky from Olives ‘n Wine again this week for another Treat Yourself Tuesday Post.  Remember my first post that I did a couple of weeks ago about finding some time to pamper yourself?  Well, I wish I could say I have been following through with that.  The kids have been sick, our dog has been sick, I have been sick and I am lucky if I have treated myself to lunch or a shower this past week.  That being said….I did decide to treat myself to something a few weeks ago, that couldn’t have shown up at a better time.  My very first Stitch Fix!

If you don’t know what Stitch Fix is definitely head on over to check it out!  You fill out a complete style profile, and when you’re in the mood to get a “fix” you pay a $20 styling fee, pick and date, and give a description of what you would like to receive and your stylist does the rest.  When you receive your delivery you can try on all the clothes in the comfort of your own home,  keep what you love and send back what you don’t.  Your $20 styling fee goes right towards whatever you decide to keep and if you keep everything you get 20% off your entire purchase.

My birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks and I thought it would be a great time to get my first fix.  I asked for some cute birthday date night tops (or whatever else they thought would fit the bill).  Greg has actually stepped up the birthday plans since I requested this so I decided on renting a dress from Rent the Runway instead for my night out, but I am still excited to hear what you think about what they sent me.  Take a look below and I would LOVE to hear your feedback regarding which you think are keepers and which you would send back.  I have 3 days to make up my mind so please help a mama out!!

1.  Dellora Zig Zag Blouse – $58.00StitchFix1

2.  Esten Button-up sleeveless blouse- $58.00StitchFix2

3.  Breyson Open Circle necklace- $32.00StitchFix3

4.  Valencia V-neck 3/4 Sleeve blouse- $68.00StitchFix4

5. Hilde Geo Print Faux Wrap dress- $128.00StitchFix5

So what do you think?  I am actually pleasantly surprised by everything my stylist sent to me.  I don’t think I would have picked any of these off the rack myself, and even when I fist opened the box I wasn’t sure what I thought of the items.  Once I tried them on with my own clothing, and some of my accessories they started to grow on me, and now I *think* I know what I am going to keep and what I am going to send back…but, as always, your opinion usually has the final say so please chime in!   I love that they even sent me the nicest personalized note with style cards ideas of how to wear the pieces they sent.


I will for sure be ordering from them more often!  The next fix I am going to ask for more casual, everyday pieces and see what they send…stay tuned!  It’s such a fun service for a few special pieces here and there.  I love that you don’t have to commit to ordering a specific number of times, and you aren’t obligated to keep anything they send to you.  This service is so perfect for someone like me who just wanders mindlessly through the mall, only to leave with one boring and basic item.  Not to mention this was way more fun than trying to shop with two impatient kids, and the anticipation for what they were going to send me was so exciting!  I literally screamed when I saw the box on our doorstep!

So please let’s hear your opinions….also, when you have a free second head over and at least treat yourself to setting up your own style profile HERE.  Even just doing that part was a treat for me, and I actually let my profile sit for awhile before I got the itch for my first fix!

So that’s all for my Treat Yourself Tuesday post…stay tuned for my Surf City Half Marathon race recap.  I was going to write that while it was fresh in my head but I only have 3 days to decide on these clothing items and that’s so much more important than running 13.1 miles wouldn’t you say? ;)  Thanks for reading along and I look forward to some input!  Have a great week!

    It all looks really good on you!! I think the dress is too expensive, and the necklace isn’t as cute as some of the Stella & Dot stuff I’ve seen.. the zig zag top seems like a trend on the way out, but I like the sleeveless top (seems super versatile) and the hi-lo top (because I’m always looking for tops that cover my butt so I can wear my WUs as pants lol!!).

    I like the coral top best. The warm color brightens your skin tone. And it’s almost Spring! It will look super cute with some sandals, wedges (have you seen the new Toms Jutti flats? I totally dropped a hint to N for Valentines lol) I also like the open circle necklace.

    • lauren says

      Thanks so much Kasey. Those were my two favorite pieces as well. I usually don’t wear too many colorful things but I do love those!

    Keep the dress, great DVF knockoff and the gold necklace. The necklace has the right scale n drop. Pair turquois or lemon yellow accessories with the dress to stay on trend with spring. The dress is a great day 2 night look, by adding gold accessories with a nude heel…hence the gold necklace with the dress for night. No more chevron please…xoxo

    • lauren says

      Lol Gina I am with you on the chevron. The top style was really cute though and had a really neat button detail on the sleeve. I don’t know if I could rock that dress. I liked how it fit me but I am way too boring to pull off such a bold pattern. Maybe in a clutch or something haha. You were always a way stylish dresser and into high end fashion so YOU my friend could sport this!!

  4. says

    I LOVE Stitch Fix! It is the best treat! I love everything on you, especially the blouses and the necklace! I vote no on the dress only because I know how hard it is to wear a wrap dress with little ones. I’m pretty sure Greyson would untie it right off of me.

    • lauren says

      Hahah very good point. And let’s be honest…when do I wear dresses? Preschool drop off? lol. Yes the blouses are dressier but perfect for a date night! Agree with you! And yes now I am officially Stitch Fix obsessed.

  5. Autumn says

    #4 is my pick! Super cute stuff…I think the dress would need to be shortened to show off some more of those Advocare/half marathon running legs :)

    • lauren says

      That’s my pick too Autumn. I am excited to ask for a more casual look next time and see what they come up with! And you are too funny with the legs comment…thanks friend!

    • lauren says

      Thanks Mia!!! I agree I think I knew right off the bat I wasn’t going to go with the necklace or the dress. I have so many Stella & Dot pieces and I felt like a traitor haha

    • lauren says

      Haha I could definitely see why that would be! You should work for Stitch Fix and style me lol :) What a fun job you have.

  6. says

    You recieved an amazing first fix!! Definitely a yes to the 3 tops. I like the necklace and dress too but I love the tops more :) Plus, like someone mentioned, I’m sure one of your boys might accidentally untie the dress and you’d probably prefer to avoid apparel malfunctions ;)

    • lauren says

      haha yup totally agree Becky!! I am already counting down until my next fix. I have way too many online shopping addictions…I have a feeling you can relate ;) lol

  7. says

    My two favorites are 1 and 3. I can’t wait to see what you keep. I cannot wait to try this out but want a few more lbs gone before I go all in. Thank god for Advocare and clean eating

  8. says

    Really like 2 and 4! So so cute! You’re going to look super great in it all.

    And way to go Greg making plans for your birthday that necessitate a fancy dress! Wow! I’m impressed. Can’t wait to hear all about it.

  9. Gina Gallisa says

    Do they have the wrap dress in black or white? Maybe any solid and then sport some loud neon jewelry. The dress make your tata’s look great. Got to bring the girls out for your bday. xoxo
