I can’t believe I’m doing this. Today, I’m giving up the reins to this here blog to none other than my little sister.
While this control freak goes and breathes into a paper bag or something, check out Grace’s first Stitch Fix review. If you like my posts, know that she’s the 100 percent opposite of me.
Okay, maybe 99 percent opposite. We both do enjoy picking on wittle Jeffy. 😉

Grace here, hijacking Samantha’s blog for the day.
For those of you who don’t know, Samantha is my older (and my cool) seester. Sami asked me to guest-blog today, and review my first ever Stitch Fix! (cue my 15 minutes of blog-fame).
I’m currently a first-year law student on the east coast, and I have an internship lined up for the summer at a law firm. With that being said, my style needs are slightly different then the Super-Mom-On-The-Go! Sami thought it might be cool to see what Stitch Fix came up with for my specific needs.
I will admit that I was skeptical. I’m very small, and I have trouble finding things to fit me in most regular stores. So when they told me a “stylist” would be picking things out for me, I didn’t have very high hopes.
I will also admit that I was wrong. I didn’t love everything in my fix, but I ended up with a fabulous, versatile piece. Plus, it was fun to try everything on and take copious selfies.
The first thing I tried on was a pair of Kensie jeans called the “Johnny Skinny Jean.” My stylist picked these because of the super short inseam and my towering 5 ft. stature. (Jokes). These are really nice jeans, but they were too big in the waist for me. I couldn’t justify spending over $80 on jeans that weren’t absolutely perfect.
Next, I tried on the “Sarah Striped French Terry Mini Skirt” (That is the actual full name) from Sanctuary. I wanted to like this because it was longer and more professional. However, the skirt had built in hips and it did the most terrible thing: It made me feel fat.
I took it off immediately.
Third up to bat was the “Anthony Heart Print Sweater” from THML. I liked this sweater, but it felt like something I could get at Target for way less money. I’m also not a heart-pattern person, but the lilac hearts were pretty adorable. Had it been cheaper, I probably would have kept this sweater.
The next two items were my favorite, but I decided to stick with the Cotten rule of one item per fix. Ultimately, I decided to send back the “Boregard Wavy Chevron Front Pocket Blouse” (Who gets paid to name these things?!). This silk shirt was lovely both tucked in, and left loose. The sleeves were meant to roll up, but they were slightly tight on my arms. I didn’t feel as comfortable in it as I thought I would, and it was sent packing.
Which brings me to the “Aleah Heathered V-Neck Dolman Top” from Pomelo. I was pretty much sold when I took this out of the box. Not only is it a gorgeous color, it is ridiculously soft. I usually stay far away from the dolman cut, but this one works for me. Not only can I wear it as a sweater dress with tights, it also looks cute and (office appropriate) tucked into a skirt. We have a winner!
If you have a hard time getting to the mall, or tend to always buy the same type of thing, Stitch Fix is worth a try. You can do like I did and have a one-time fix sent as a trial run, or you can go ahead and schedule one every month. I had fun styling my pieces (Hashtag selfie), and I will definitely be ordering another fix soon! Thanks for reading!
