Have you heard about subscription clothing services? I had been seeing ads on Facebook for awhile and I was really intrigued, so I went ahead and tried one called Stitch Fix. Here’s how it works….you fill out a style profile, along with some stats and preferences about yourself and your style, and then a stylist hand picks 5 pieces just for you. They are mailed to you (with your choice of frequency) and you have three days to try them on and decide what you want to keep. If you keep all five items in your box, you get a 25% discount. The box even comes with an envelope to mail back your unwanted items, so you don’t have to worry about shipping!
The cost of Stitch Fix starts with a $20 styling fee, however if you choose to keep anything in your box, you can put that $20 toward what you want to keep. The only way you are “out” the $20 is if you decide not to keep anything that was sent to you.
Before I tried it, I read some reviews and found out that making a Pinterest board is very helpful for the stylists to get to know you and to really be able to capture your personality. And that’s just what I did- I created a specific Pinterest board for my stylist, and then posted the link to my profile on Stitch Fix.
When the box arrived, I was so excited to dig in and see what was it it!
The first thing I found in the box was this flowery shirt. I wasn’t too crazy about the print, but I did love the arm detail where it looked like the sleeves were tied. I will reassure you, it was a lot cuter on than it was on the hanger. I ultimately decided to send this one back because it didn’t fit me right.
Inside the box was also a striped dress that was definitely something I would wear! It was very flattering on, but was a little too long. Again, the price was a little steep, and I don’t really need any dresses right now.
The final item I received in my first “Fix” was a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans. (I am not really sure what that means!) They were so very comfortable, and although I would typically prefer them without the rip, I really liked them. I ended up sending these back, but only to exchange for a different size!
Overall, I really had a fun time with my first time using Stitch Fix! I am very busy and don’t get time to go shopping for myself, so it’s really convenient to have a stylist do it for me! The items are fairly decent quality as well. Due to the price point of a lot of the items, this isn’t something that I could make a regular occasion, but it would be fun to try from time to time!
