Last fall, I ordered my first Stitch Fix box. Stitch Fix provides a personal wardrobe styling service with delivery at an interval of your choosing or "on demand." I continue to use the "on demand" option. I liked the selections from the fall, so I decided to give my wardrobe a little boost for the spring, too. (Well, as much "fall" and "spring" as you really get in Southern California.)
When I opened my box, I was pleasantly surprised to see all the colors included. When I shop out in the store, I always seem to get stuck on one color for some reason. So this box brings some much-needed variety to my closet. I received four tops and one pair of pants:
The photo actually features the back of the shirt. The front is the solid grey sweatshirt material. The back is a bit sheer, so I wear a tank-top undershirt with it. The solid-color front is great for showing off some of these cool necklaces I've received in subscription boxes lately.
I recently wore this shirt on a very warm day at the Food and Wine Festival at Disney's California Adventure. It was so lightweight, comfortable and cool. Of course, I promptly flung cheddar and bacon soup on the front of it. It wiped off fairly well at the park, and then the rest came out with no trouble in the wash.
I really don't know how Stitch Fix manages to send pants that fit so perfectly. Both pairs they've sent me so far fit better than any pants I've shopped for in the store in the last few years. Maybe my body just particularly likes this Kut From the Kloth brand, as both were made by that brand.
I actually wore this shirt with a light jacket to church on Easter Sunday. My older daughter and I worked in the nursery that day, and we never wear our "Sunday best" when taking on that duty. However, I thought the color and design were lovely and appropriate for the occasion.
To be perfectly honest, I would probably never select a shirt this color if I were out shopping in the store. I was a little hesitant when I saw it in the box. However, I tried it on and really liked it. Again, like the sweatshirt above, the solid color really lends itself to fun with accessories.
Finally, StitchFix includes a lovely informational card in the box. It gives you photos and tips about different ways to wear your new items. For someone who is as fashion incompetent as myself, this is really helpful!!
