Stitch Fix #28
October 11, 2013 by CJ
I got my October fix just the other day. Unlike last month, I really had a dilemma when it came to which items I would keep.
My box when I opened it up
I loved this necklace as soon as I took it out of the package. Before I looked at the price, I put it away with my other jewelry. Fortunately, its in my price range!
When I tried this on, I actually liked it. None of the pictures I took really showed how awesome this blouse is. My only issue with it, is my own problem. I didn’t like the way it looked at my belly. I had it in the keep pile, thinking if I only lost an inch or two it would look perfect. BUT, I have a closet full of clothes that would look perfect after a few pounds or inches are lost. I promised myself I would not buy any more clothes for future me. I need clothes for today me. With that said, this blouse has to go back.
Was not a fan of this in the box. But once I had this on, I was in love! The fit, the feel, everything!! This is what I’ve been looking for. Perfect for work, but still feeling like me. I just wish I could tie that bow the way it was in the box. A definite keeper.
If I had another day, I’m sure I’d talk myself into this shirt. I like it…I think. I didn’t like any pictures I took of myself in it…I’m really torn about this. I haven’t sealed my return package yet, anything is possible.
I fell in immediate love with this dress, then I tried her on.
It just did not contain me. Notice my right (your left) upper arm. I’m not a fan of the spillage. This is a dress I would have kept in the past thinking, it’ll be perfect when… But again, I’m not doing that anymore. As much as it saddens me, I have to return this one.
While I am only keeping 2, maybe 3 items this time, I am very very pleased with the box. It has inspired me to get back on track with my workouts, so I can fit into those items I really love. Two thumbs up!

Love that dress! Good job saying no to the items that “would fit if…”. That’s so hard to do! I haven’t tried Stitch Fix, but I may at some point. Thanks for sharing your experience!
Thanks for stopping by. If you do try it, I can’t wait to know your thoughts. For me it’s perfect. It was difficult to return that dress. I noted to them, that I wouldn’t mind seeing it again. 🙂 Going for that run now! 😉 I
I’m glad you found some items you liked, and good for you for sticking with your convictions about the others! Thanks for linking to my blog post! I had so much fun with my first Stitch Fix!
Thanks for stopping by. I love sharing other great posts on similar subjects. Sticking to my guns is not easy, but I am thankful that I did. I’m hooked on Stitch Fix
You are the first person I have seen ‘talk’ about stitchfix that wasn’t a size 0 to 2. Thank you! I am in your category. Normal every day knocking on 40 woman who wishes my tummy were alittle flatter and that my chest/arms fit in that oh so perfect dress just a tiny bit better. I really needed to see someone who wasn’t trying on skinny jeans from their box to feel good about trying stitchfix out. I started a new job after 6 years at home and rebuilding the work wardrobe has been a challenge. You have made me feel better about the service! Thanks for the post.
You are very welcome! I had similar questions about Stitch Fix before I decided to go for it. I was definitely struggling when it came to finding work clothes that I felt comfortable in and looked professional after living in sweats and tshirts for so many years. I’ve accepted that I will not fit into any pants they may send my way, I think I’ve requested they not even try that (maybe one day). I use the cards that come with each item to pick out appropriate bottoms. But it is a great service for tops, dresses and accessories for those of us that aren’t a size 2. Good luck and I’d love to hear about your fixes.
