A few years ago, I heard someone talking about Stitch Fix. I will admit, I thought it sounded silly and a totally frivolous thing to spend money on. And then a friend of mine posted pictures of things she got in her Stitch Fix box and I thought, “I want to try this”. It just so happen that if I used her referral link, I would get a $25 credit. I figured I didn’t have anything to lose! Be sure to keep on reading to find out how you can get your very own $25 credit too!

Fashion and being trendy has never really mattered to me. However, now that I’ve lost close to 90 lbs. and kept it off for well over two years, I’m starting to venture out and try new things. So when I saw I could try Stitch Fix AND get a $25 credit to do so, I had to do it. Believe me, I was super skeptical. I am a person that needs to try EVERYTHING on.
What Did I Think of My Stitch Fix Box?
I knew my box was due to arrive today. Let me tell you. I was like a kid on Christmas morning. When I saw that box on my porch, I immediately grabbed it and ran upstairs to try things on. I was super nervous too. How could I not be? Like I said, I have to try everything on and my clothing size is not consistent from brand to brand. The first thing I pulled out of the box was a black blouse with flowers on it (I think they are dandelions, actually). My initial reaction was, “ugh…I’d never wear this”. Boy was I wrong!
This shirt is something I would have 100% passed up in a store. It’s not a fabric I would ever pick and the pattern is not something I would gravitate to either. However, I tried it on and instantly felt good in it. I can’t explain it. I just loved it. This definitely went in the buy pile.
What About Everything else?
The other items I got in my box are:
- Light denim jacket
- Long black maxi dress
- White shorts
- Keds shoes
When I saw shorts in the box, I almost didn’t try them on. I can’t tell you how many pairs of shorts I tried on this year before settling on the few pairs I bought. They were either too short, too tight, or they gapped open in the back and half my butt showed. So, as you can imagine, I didn’t have high hopes for these shorts. But…I kid you not…the darn things FIT! How is that possible? I really have no clue, but they fit like they were made for me. While I know that should mean I should have bought them, they were white and I’m not a fan of white shorts/pants for me.
The maxi dress was so nice! I really liked it and really wanted to buy it, but it was slightly too big on top. I know I could have sent it back for a smaller size, but I don’t know that it would have fit my lower half. The denim jacket as nice also. It’s just not something I see myself wearing. And finally, the Keds shoes. They were cute, but I’m having knee issues, so I need to be picky about what type of shoes I wear.
Why I think My Stitch Fix Was So Successful
I was crazy specific in my profile. So specific, I was afraid I scared off my stylist! Not even joking! However, that’s what you need to do. I told her that I was curvy and have an issue with shorts/pants gapping in the back. When it came to things I liked and didn’t like, I made a list and told her everything. I also made sure to list out the things I do not want. Things like jewelry and accessories. At the moment, I need clothes. Once I build up my wardrobe, then I can add in the accessories!
