Wednesday Wow: Stitch Fix

My sister-in-law Melinda introduced me to the coolest website: Stitch Fix. When we were in San Francisco this summer she pulled out a box of clothes sent to her by Stitch Fix, an online personal shopping service. I was intrigued!

So, I signed up and I received my first "fix" on Monday. Based on a profile I filled out about three weeks ago, my own little personal shopper sent me a package with five items she thought would complement my wardrobe. The way it works is I keep and pay for anything I went, and simply return the rest in a prepaid packing envelope within three days. There is a styling fee of $20 which is deducted from the purchase.

I only kept one thing---a sheer black three-quarter sleeve shirt that I love. But, I did like a few of the others. A corduroy blazer with elbow pads was adorable, but I just couldn't picture myself wearing it.... especially to any professional outings. I also really liked a short, fit and flare black cocktail dress, but once again, I couldn't think of an occasion to wear it. We do have a wedding coming up, but I don't think it was fancy enough. The personal shopper also sent one piece of jewelry---a really cute and fun necklace, but I really just would rather spend money on building my wardrobe at this point. The only thing I really didn't like was a polka-dot sweater, which I found kind of blah. Overall, it was a fun experience. Who doesn't love receiving packages?

Here's the shirt I chose to keep. I think I will wear it a lot.
