Stitch Fix style: First fix, three ways

Everyone I know has been trying Stitch Fix, so I was waiting eagerly and watching tons of unboxing videos on YouTube until my first box was delivered. 

A primer for the uninitiated: Stitch Fix is a site where you fill out a detailed survey about your personal style, body type, and what kind of clothes you like or need. Then, a stylist sends you five items they think you'll love. You try them on, keep and pay for what you want, and send the rest back in a prepaid envelope. A $20 styling fee that you pay if you send it all back is deducted if you buy something. So, if you keep $100 worth of clothes, it'll cost $80, and if you keep none of the clothes, it's $20 for the styling and shipping.

I kept the Everly Elzada Dress ($54) and the 41Hawthorn Abrianna Longsleeve Knit Cardigan ($48) in this gorgeous jewel of a purple. I'm so excited to wear the cardigan with everything, and the dress is exactly my style: fitted but without showing a lot of skin, with a perfect-length flare skirt and a great variegated fabric.

The first look is just the dress with leggings and my trusty biker boots. I think of this as edgy but glamorous. I like the contrast of the boots and the sparkly statement necklace, and the dress is the perfect anchor piece.

The second look just adds the cardigan, and it's instantly artsy and eclectic. The drape on the cardigan is amazing. It skims my back and doesn't look baggy at all, but it leaves room in the front so it can sort of mask your midsection if you had pasta for lunch. And it's so soft with impossibly thin and luxurious material.

The third look is funky and feminine. I tied the ends of the cardigan around my waist, swapped out the boots for booties, and added a chunky floral necklace.

Overall, I'd consider my first fix a grand success, and can't wait to see what my stylist comes up with next.
