You have probably seen something about Stitch Fix on Facebook or Instagram but what in the world is it?!
Like many people, I first noticed Stitch Fix being talked about on Facebook and honestly I completely ignored it. Then my own mom signed up and started getting boxes of clothes in the mail so of course I had to ask some questions and try it for myself. Stitch Fix is a personal styling company that sends you five items per box. You can choose to get a box as frequently as every two weeks or all the way up to every three months.
What do I mean by personal stylist? When you sign up you fill out a style profile to give your stylist an idea of what you like and what types of fashion trends you’d be willing to try. The basic questions like how do you prefer clothes to fit the bottom half of your body and how would you characterize your proportions are included. You’re also shown a series of pictures portraying different styles and asked what you think about each. It is highly advisable to set up a Pinterest board specifically for your ideal style and what items you’re looking to add to your wardrobe. This gives your stylist a constant visual update on the things you’re looking for.
I know what you’re thinking and this service really isn’t that expensive. You can choose price ranges for each type of item such as tops, dresses, and so forth. You can tell your stylist that you want to go as cheap as possible and still get very cute stuff in your box! When it’s time for your fix to be put together you’ll be charged $20 for the styling fee but that goes toward your total at the end when you check out.
So how does it work? Once you get your fix in the mail you have three days to try everything on and pick what you’re keeping. Your fix will include a note from your stylist giving you tips on what to pair each item with and a bag to send your unwanted items back. You only pay for what you keep but you get a pretty decent discount when you keep all five items. When you’re ready to check out, make sure you give your stylist detailed feedback on each item. This helps the Stitch Fix stylists understand your likes and dislikes.
In the beginning I had a different stylist for every fix but after purchasing all five items for the first time they kept me with the same stylist. You can also request a stylist after you try the service out for a while. I love having the same person style me because she gives me tips on how to pair the new stuff with the old stuff she sent me. I absolutely LOVE Stitch Fix!! Going shopping and trying clothes on with a toddler in tow is not a fun experience for me but now I have a box of clothes (and they have shoes now!) delivered right to my office!
I’m set up to receive one fix every month so I decided to start a new series for you guys! Every month I’ll show you what’s in my box and give an honest review of each piece. Even if you don’t want to use Stitch Fix these are brands that you can find at retail stores. If you do want to give it a try I’d love it if you would use my referral link! https://www.stitchfix.com/referral/6119245 Every person that uses Stitch Fix is assigned a referral link and when people use that link to sign up, you get credit towards your next box!
Happy Monday to you all! xoxo
