Hey there! This weekend I received my fourth fix from Stitch Fix. When I first discovered Stitch Fix, I was a little skeptical of somebody else picking out my clothing, because I think I am entirely too picky.
Once upon a time I loved shopping. Today, it’s just not happening.
My clothes shopping is currently limited to Carter’s. And my current shop time is, at maximum, fifteen minutes. So to have a box packed full of personalized clothing show up at my front door is spectacular. And a little like Christmas.
Here’s how it works (in a nutshell):
Sign up for an account here: Stitch Fix
Fill out your style profile (see tips below) and select a ship date.
On or around your ship date, a beautiful little box will arrive at your house. In your box you’ll get five items, a styling card/note from your stylist, and a pre-paid return shipping bag (if needed). You’ll have 3 days to decided what you want. If you decide to keep your entire box, you’ll get 25% off of your entire purchase. There is a $20 styling fee. This goes toward your purchase, however– if you decide not to keep anything, you’ll still be charged the $20 fee (pretty fair I think). If you end up having to send anything back, all you need to do is stick it in your mailbox.
I actually sent back my entire first fix. I LOVED everything, but I didn’t set the appropriate budget for myself. So I gave it another try, setting my budget a smidge lower. My next fix was exactly what I wanted, for a price that I could handle.
Curious about what I’ve received? Here’s a few snapshots:
I’ve also received pants that fit perfectly. That never happens. I hate buying pants. Bonus points to SF.
If you decide to give it a try, here are a few tips to consider:
- Find your actual measurements. It will help your stylist pick out clothing that will fit.
- Link and frequently update a personal style board on Pinterest-they actually use it!
- Be as specific as possible. When I am writing my preferences, I swear I am being overly specific and perhaps a tad annoying, but it works! If you don’t want shoes or jewelry or bags, say so or you might get it!
- This is the best tip I have received: If you don’t like something, but want to keep your discount for your other items, find your size Facebook page and see if somebody else wants to buy it.
- If something is wrong-they will fix it. Once I was sent a knit sweater that had a strange gap in the stitching. They responded quickly and took care of the issue.
Overall, my personal experience with the company has been a positive one. I think I’ll be a stitch fixer for a while 😉
