My Second Stitch Fix

I can tend to get a little carried away with purchases, so I vowed I wouldn't get a Stitch Fix more than once a month. Once I got my first one - April 19th - I just simply couldn't wait for my next, so I scheduled my next for the beginning of May (hey, it's still once a month, right?). It arrived on Friday, and I loved it even more than my first one! There's something thrilling about getting glimpses of what's in the box - patterns, fabric - when you first pull that neatly folded pile of clothing out! I knew immediately I was going to love it. I took a quick glance at each piece and zeroed in on the last one I pulled out - this black and white Ivy Square Print Tab Sleeve blouse, $75.

This blouse is exactly the sort of thing I was hoping to get in a Stitch Fix after borrowing a Stitch Fix blouse from my sister... but this one is even better because it's black and white, which means I can wear it to work! So obviously I wore it to work the very next day.

This Catriece Sleeveless Crossover knit top was the next item I tried on, and I loved this too! It's not something I would usually pick out for myself (exactly the reason I like Stitch Fix), but it would be great for going out. The price tag, unfortunately, was a little high for me -- at $88, it wasn't worth it. Even though I didn't keep it, I consider this successful since I liked it so much!

This Ronelle front-tie sleeveless top is the more bohemian of the pieces, and it was a challenge. I love the details, but I don't love that it's sleeveless and I don't love the tie at the bottom. It definitely pushes the boundaries of my normal wardrobe, something I need, but I don't see myself wearing it -- especially at $78.

This necklace, the one accessory, is just kinda... eh. Too simple. I go simple in most categories of my life, but lately I've been wanting some statement necklaces, so this isn't for me. It's also gold, and I only sometimes wear gold jewelry.

There was also a pair of Sophia skinny jeans in this box ($88), which I failed to get a picture of, but they're just simple, blue skinny jeans. They fit really well, and I need a good pair of skinnies, so I'm keeping them!

So even though I only kept two, three out of five of these items were successful as opposed to the one out of five in my first box. Unfortunately (and a little surprisingly?), this whole box was more expensive than my first. Everything was between $75 and $88, whereas everything in the first box was between $48 and $58. Not sure what the reason is for the higher prices, but I won't be able to consistently purchase clothes at these prices!

Have you tried Stitch Fix yet? How do you like it?
