Have you heard of Stitch Fix?
It’s all the rave around the blog world these days, and I finally understand why.
I’m in love!
So what is it? Basically it’s your own personal online styling service.
You fill out a style profile about your style likes, dislikes, sizing, etc. It goes over everything from your occupation to what hobbies you do and it even asks which body parts you’d like to accentuate and which you’d like to leave covered up. It’s very in-depth but it’s the core to how your stylist will pick your pieces so it’s a definite must.
It only costs $20 per “fix.” You pay that up front but then if you keep any pieces that were sent to you, the $20 comes off as a credit. You also receive 25% off if you keep all 5 pieces that were sent! BONUS!
You can schedule them for whenever you want, but there is a little bit of a waiting period because of the high demand. Not to mention the company really wants to ensure they have five perfect pieces to match your style profile. How perfect is it if you have a wedding, promotion, or special event coming up that you’d have a new outfit coming your way if you scheduled it ahead of time? Such a great idea.
Once your Fix arrives, you have 3 days to try everything on and send anything back that you don’t want. The company even provides a pre-paid return envelope.
While you can’t give direct requests of clothing, you can provide a comment when you schedule your fix if you’re looking for something in particular – ie flowy items, dressy things, etc.
I didn’t have any special requests so here’s what I got.
- Hannah Chevron Stacking Bangle Bracelets (forgot to snap a picture)
- Priya Abstract Floral Print Knit Back Tank
- Julie A-line Striped Ponte Dress
- Porter Basic Legging
- Burgdorf Diamond Printed Henley Blouse
This might possibly be my favorite part of the whole process: each piece came with a styling card, showing me different options and pieces to pair it with.
I seriously have no style so this was a major plus for me!
Prices averaged around $47. That’s typically more than I would spend for a shirt or accessory. But if it’s good quality, I don’t mind spending a little more.
I ended up keeping two out of the five pieces sent to me so here’s how they all ranked.
- Hannah Chevron Stacking Bangle Bracelets (forgot to snap a picture). These were really really cute but I had a hard time spending $36.00 on bracelets. I don’t accessorize as much as I should, especially now with a baby who is constantly grabbing at everything. It was a hard decision but ultimately I sent them back.
- Priya Abstract Floral Print Knit Back Tank. Loved this tank. Loved it. It had the perfect amount of looseness, and I loved the bright colors. I kept it for sure!
- Julie A-line Striped Ponte Dress. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this dress. I’m a big time lover of all dresses so I’ll try any and all of them but this one felt as it if were sewn wrong. One side was lop-sided. If you look very closely at the picture, you can see my left side (the right side of the picture) is shifted up a little. Maybe my body is just off balanced? Could be possible.
- Porter Basic Legging. Another love and an absolutely must-have to any wardrobe. The fabric was extremely soft and thick. They’re definitely the best quality leggings I’ve ever put on. Keeper!
- Burgdorf Diamond Printed Henley Blouse. This was a tough one. I would never have picked this shirt out for myself in the store so I tried to keep an open mind. That’s what this process is all about, right? But I couldn’t do it. I felt frumpy and didn’t like the length.
I’d say my first Fix was definitely a success! Even though I didn’t keep everything, I loved all the options that were shown to me. It was surprising that everything fit almost perfectly too. I mean 9 times out of 10, I send back at least one item if I purchase things online on my own.
I really wasn’t sure what to expect with Stitch Fix. I’ve seen SO many people talk about it so I thought I’d give it a try and keep an open mind. I’m sure glad I did.
I loved it so much I already schedule my next fix, AND put it on auto-ship for a new Fix once a month!
FYI This post was in no way sponsored or endorsed by Stitch Fix. I honestly just wanted to try it and see what it was about, not knowing I’d fall in love! The company puts so much detail and time into each package they ship out, and they provide excellent customer service. I’m very glad I tried it! I hope you found my thoughts helpful and want to give it a try for yourself! It’s worth it!
