If you ever scroll through Facebook, most likely you’ve seen an advertisement or saw a friend post about Stitch Fix (an online personal stylist). I asked a couple friends about it and read some reviews online and the general feeling I kept reading was “it’s expensive.” So I resisted trying it for a long time.
Well, after having baby #3, I started to become lazy with my appearance. No one said anything to me, but I just got tired of jean skirts, t-shirts, and I missed dressing up a little bit and wearing makeup. I also knew my wardrobe needed help cause I tend to buy the same colors and never step outside of my comfort zone, so I decided to give it a try. What’s the worst that could happen? I’m out $20? (I’ll explain that later) I waste that every month on Starbucks.
So here’s my FIRST Stitch-Fix review and the “lowdown” on how the whole thing works:
First I created a Pinterest board. When you do that, make sure you comment about everything you “pin.” Everything from “the price is too much,” “I don’t like the color,” “the style is perfect!” etc. Then when you create your style profile, you can send your stylist a link to your Pinterest board and they can get a feel for what you really like.
After that, you create your online profile at www.stitchfix.com You pay $20 upfront (that’s the styling fee), answer a bunch of questions, then pick a date to have your “Fix” delivered. You can choose to have your “fixes” delivered automatically or on-demand, which is the option I chose. Once your fix arrives, you have three days to try everything on, decide what you want to keep and what you want to send back. They do send you a postage-paid envelope to mail everything back in which is nice.
Here are some pictures of what I got:
I decided to keep this one because when I put it on, I felt like it worked perfectly with my body type and was a print I never would have picked for myself but that was the point, stepping out of my comfort zone.
Although I really liked this dress I sent it back cause I felt it was a little too much to spend on a maxi dress.
This one was sent back because the slits on the side went up to my thigh, just too much for my modesty standards.
I kept this one. It is simple, yet has a dressy feel with the lace, and is really loose fitting making it great for summer weather.
I sent this one back also because I felt it was too “old lady” for me with the color and print. The sleeve openings are actually cut pretty low which made me uncomfortable.
I didn’t think keeping two out of the five was bad for a first fix. Here’s how much it cost:
Dress $48 Top $48 Total $96 – $20 styling fee credit = $76
Now if you keep all five items, you get your $20 styling fee back AND an additional 25% off. So if I would have kept all five items it would have cost me $169. For good, high quality clothing, I really don’t have a problem paying these prices once in a while.
I’ll definitely be trying Stitch Fix again. I’m thinking I might do a box for every season. I’m not sure yet, but that’s my thinking at this point.
