I heard about Stitch Fix several months ago and filled out an online profile. I didn’t schedule a shipment as I was a little nervous, but thought about it a few times! Fast forward to the last month or so and I’ve seen numerous Facebook posts from friends who are loving Stitch Fix! So, I scheduled a “fix” and have been anxiously awaiting for its arrival.
If you are not familiar with Stitch Fix, you start by registering and filling out an online style profile. The profile covers your age, sizes and fashion preferences. You have the option of adding a picture of your self as well as adding a link to your Pinterest account. Based on your profile, a stylist will chooses five items (clothes, jewelry, and/or accessories) to send. You pay a $20 styling fee, which covers the cost of the stylist and shipping, and if you keep anything, you apply the $20 toward the cost of the item(s). If you keep all five, you get a 25% discount on the whole box! (You send whatever you don’t want back in a pre-paid envelope.) You can also earn credits for referring friends. Questions in your profile allow you to designate a price range for your items. I selected “the cheaper the better” for all categories. I don’t spend a lot of money on clothes for myself. But, I recognize the need for some quality items in my closet as I’m getting older!
I was super excited to see the box on my porch today and was super anxious to try things on! I had to wait about 2-3 weeks for my “fix” to arrive after scheduling, but it did come 2 days earlier then I expected.
The first thing I opened was this adorable necklace. I loved it and my stylist obviously got my style, because I have one just like it! I decided to return this, because I couldn’t justify buying another one so similar. Price – $28
Here is a picture of my Silpada chevron necklace next to the one I received in my shipment. If I didn’t already own one, I would have kept it! Next up was this adorable polka dot Gideon sweater. This sweater fits great and is reversible! I think it’s a great piece for work and I will be keeping it. Price-$68
I was excited to try the Anita pants in burgundy. I had high hopes, but they were just way too long. I also thought the pockets on the back made them a bit more causal then I would like for work. I will be sending these back and hope to find some pants for work I love in my next shipment. Price – $78.
I was also super excited when I saw the Riley distressed skinny jeans! These were ankle length and still a little long for me, but great rolled. I loved everything about these jeans, but the rise was a little low for me. I will be sending these back too! Price-$78
My last piece is this olive colored Rosa blouse. I loved this top because it fit great and can be dressed up or down very easily. I will be keeping this! Price-$58
The fix also comes with a personalized note from your stylist where different outfits are suggested, along with some styling ideas in pictures.
In the end, I will be keeping the two tops. Initially, I thought the prices were pretty high, especially after I had indicated “the cheaper the better”! However, when you apply the $20 styling fee and any credits you have, it turns out to be pretty affordable. There is also no shipping fee and I save time not having to go out shopping! Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE shopping! But, it’s difficult to find time to shop just for me. In addition, should you ever keep all of the items in your shipment, you receive a 25% discount.
Another piece of this service is filling out feedback on the items you received. You are able to rate on the mobile ap how well you liked the item as far as fit, style, price, etc. This info will help your stylist for your next fix.
Overall, this was a great exciting experience and I can’t wait for my next “fix”. If you’re curious, I highly recommend giving Stitch Fix a try!
