Bright Side Jessica and the Stitch Fix Product Review

Hi all! Happy Friday!

As promised, I'm sharing product details about my first fix from Stitch Fix! By now, you may have already seen my post and subsequent video I shared of my unboxing experience, that I posted earlier this week.

Now that that's all said and done, let's get to the good stuff – THE PRODUCTS!

I will say this time and time again. My stylist, Makela, was completely on point with picking out products for me. Even when I showed people photos of the picks, they would say, "Oh my gosh, that's totally you!" Everything in that box was my style, and, to my surprise, everything fit perfectly. It was the best first experience with Stitch Fix that I could've asked for.

So, let's do a deep dive, shall we?

1. octavia  |  francesca mini polka dot infinity scarf

This red mini polka dot infinity scarf from Octavia was super cute. I mean, you really can't go wrong with polka dots. At least as it relates to me. Haha. It was nice and lightweight, but not too lightweight that it could only be for styling purposes.

2. loveappella  |  elroy angled button knit top

This button knit top was my favorite in terms of style and fit. I knew I'd like it the moment I laid it out. Though, as I pulled it out of the box, I realized that the material was a little thin for my liking. When I tried it on and saw how it fit, the concern about the thinness disappeared. At least momentarily. 

I loooooved how it fit so much so, that I was willing to overlook the thinness just to have it in my closet.

3. 41hawthorn  |  astrid tie neck blouse

When I first pulled this blouse out of the box, I was pretty excited. I'd been considering getting a top like this for work since spring is here and summer is just around the corner. I don't have anything like it, so I was thrilled at not even having to go shopping for this top. It basically fell into my lap!

Anyway, yet another well-fitted top. This one fell straight so there was no curve hugging or anything like that, which I actually really like. (It's the kind of top you want to be wearing when going to a buffet. ;P) It's very lightweight. Perfect for the warmth of summer. Love the pattern and the fact that it's black and white so I could pair with any one of my colored pants. And to top it off, the tie neck was such a cute detail! 

4. liverpool  |  mira skinny jean

These skinny jeans were fun. I took them out of the box and thought, "No way is this going to fit me. I'm not even going to bother trying it on." Nevertheless, since I had heard multiple reviews from other people about how Stitch Fix stylists knew their sizes better than they did, I decided to give it a shot.

I regretted my decision the moment I tried it on, but not for actual bad reasons. I regretted trying it on because I realllllllly loved how it fit. Now, obviously, they're not 100% denim. They had a lot of stretch to it, which helped with it being such a great fit. But man, those pants fit so well, that I stared at the $78 price tag trying to make excuses to allow myself to get it.

5. 41hawthorn  |  abrianna longsleeve knit cardigan

I probably liked this the least out of everything else in my box. Don't get me wrong, I loved the fit and the color most of all, but I really didn't like how thin it was. I've never really liked see-through cardigans. I don't really see the point in them. But again, color and fit were perfect so I considered looking past the thinness.

 

So, which one(s) did I keep?

Well, I went all over the place to make this decision, mainly because of price, but also because of practicality. This is kind of how it went in my head...

I should buy all of them to get the 25% off. Yes, I don't really care for the thinness of the cardigan, but I can look past that for a good discount.

Then...

Nah, don't buy all of them if you don't really like one of them.

Then...

Maybe I'll just buy the two tops and the jeans since I don't really need a new scarf. I have enough already. And even If I didn't, I could always just knit myself one. It wouldn't have polka dots, but it would've been made with love.

Then...

Meh. I have enough pants. I don't really need a new pair, especially at $78.

And THEN it came down to the final two – the super cute, perfectly fitting striped top or the super cute, sleeveless tie neck blouse...

Crap. I know for a fact that I don't need both... Pig or cow? Pig or cow? [Bonus points if you can tell me where that's from. :P]...

 

I chose...

 
*Don't mind the blurriness.*

The 41Hawthorn Astrid Tie Neck Blouse.

Why?

Because as wonderful as that striped top was, I reminded myself that not only did I have slight reservations due to the thin material, I also have tops that are similar in fit and some that are similar in style.

I proudly chose the one item out of the bunch that I didn't have a style of already.

Mhm.

Patting myself on the back right now for making a very practical decision on this.
