I'm so loving my monthly Stitch Fix boxes! If you haven't heard of Stitch Fix, it's a monthly subscription box service. You pay a $20 styling fee and fill out a detailed style questionnaire, then the Stitch Fix stylists pick out five clothing and accessory items to send you. You keep only what you love and send the rest back in their pre-paid shipping envelope. Your $20 styling fee is applied as a credit toward what you keep -- and if you keep all five pieces, you get an additional 25% off the total.
This month's Stitch Fix box arrived right on schedule, on Jan. 2. I immediately dove in...
Alexandra was my stylist this month and she did an awesome job. I love that she included a personal note and said she actually read my blog reviews on my previous Stitch Fixes. How awesome is that?! Thank you so much, Alexandra and Stitch Fix!
First out of the box was this Marquis Slub Knit Dolman Sweater by Kut From The Kloth ($48). The color and knit fabric were awesome, but it looked a little loose and sloppy on me and was a little on the short side. Let's be honest, I really don't need to look larger than I already am. :) So it went in the going-back pile.
Next up was this Rowson Colorblock Striped Sweater by 41Hawthorn ($58). I fell in love immediately, probably because I'm super into stripes right now. In fact, I have bought two other black and white striped tops in the last month. For that reason, I was really torn on this one. I wanted to keep it so bad. That pink on the top is adorable. But, even though I loved this one, it had to go back.
Third in the box was this emerald green Cherise Tab Sleeve Henley by 41Hawthorn ($48). I loved loved loved this color as soon as I saw it. And it was such a flattering fit for me (even though my face looks less than thrilled here -- I'm obviously not much of a model LOL). This was a keeper for sure.
Finally, these Collen High Rise Straight Leg Jeans by Liverpool ($78) in a purple-burgandy color. I was really not loving these -- until I tried them on. I don't know how Stitch Fix does it, finding pants than actually fit me. I would have try on five gazillion pairs at Kohl's before I found one that fit me -- and yet, in each box I've gotten from Stitch Fix, the pants have all fit me perfectly. These were so soft and comfy. And I know colored denim is a big trend right now, so I decided to keep these.
Last up, these Katie Twist & Crystal Drop Earrings by Bay to Baubles ($28). They were beautiful and sparkly, but a bit large for me and not so-much-my-style.
I decided that if I was keeping those jeans, I was going to wear them right away. So I put together this outfit the next day with one of those new black and white stripe tops I mentioned earlier and a new necklace.

So all in all, I only kept two of the five pieces this month. That means I didn't get the extra 25% discount for keeping all five, but my grand total for the two pieces was only $106 after my $20 styling fee was taken out.
I'm loving my monthly Stitch Fix boxes -- I cannot wait for the next one! If you haven't tried Stitch Fix, you should definitely do it. It is seriously so much fun to get these monthly surprise boxes.
