Stitch Fix Experience

SF12

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:

  1. Find your actual measurements. It will help your stylist pick out clothing that will fit.
  2. Link and frequently update a personal style board on Pinterest-they actually use it!
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. 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 😉

Happy Fixing!
