I’ve been reading reviews about Stitchfix for a while now and figured it was finally time for me to check it out. I have never been great with Fall fashion and I’ve been loving my monthly subscription to Birchbox so why not?
So, what is Stitch Fix? Stitch Fix is a personal styling service. They get your style and size preferences, then send you a package of stylish goodies to try on at home. No two Fix™ shipments are alike. Each one is hand–picked just for you.
How does it work?
- Sign Up and Complete Your Style Profile After signing up you can start immediately on your Style Profile. They will need to know your size, shape, style, price preferences, and lifestyle to get your Fix right. It’ll take about 10 minutes.
- Schedule a Stitch Fix Pick a date, and they will send you a box of 5 clothing and accessory items they have hand-picked just for you. Schedule monthly, or as often as you like—it’s your call. You pay a $20 styling fee up front, which serves as credit toward anything in your Stitch Fix shipment.
- Try it all on Try on everything they send you—you never know what you’ll like until you see it on. Pair it with items already in your closet. Each item includes style cards with ideas and inspiration on how to wear it.
- Decide Take 3 days to decide what you’ll keep. Pay for just what you want to keep, return the rest in our pre-paid mailing bag at any USPS mailbox. Keep all 5 items and you save 25% off the entire shipment. Don’t forget you get to use the initial $20 you paid towards the items.
- Check Out Give Stitch Fix feedback on your shipment—their secret (styling) sauce gets better over time if we know what did and didn’t work for you
I opened my box and immediately saw something I love in clothes.
COLOR. I did write in my profile that I love that, so I’m glad they were paying attention. My personal stylist also sent me a note which made me feel like she was listening to my needs (wants).
The first item I tried on was the red ponte dress.
Love. Love. Love. This was my favorite item by far in the entire fix. The fit was perfect, the material is thick and this is an easy piece to transform from Summer to Fall.
Each item comes with 2 pictures on tips for styling. Which could be a bad thing? Now I want the clutch on the right and the sandals on the left… Yikes.
Item number 2 is a blue flower crystal necklace that I paired with the dress above.
I did like this necklace a lot…However, I have almost an identical one from J. Crew so it doesn’t make sense to have two.
Item Number 3 was the black and white design tank. The back was very soft, almost mesh-like material. But way nicer than mesh. Does that make sense?
I wanted to love this tank but I wasn’t digging the fit.. Too frumpy for me. Adam however, did like it a lot. So i tried it on with a blazer too.
It was OK. But I didn’t want to talk myself into liking something.
Item Number 4 was a green drawstring skirt.
Love the color and the fit but it was a little too long. Also, I didn’t feel like the material could transfer over to fall so I had to say no to this one.
My last item was an orange top with lace crochet detail. I love lace and I love the color orange!
I adored this top. The only problem is it was a bit baggy on the sides so my bra was hanging out. When I was 18 I wouldn’t have cared…But, now that I am nearing 30 (WHAT?), I decided against it.
I only ended up buying the red dress in this order but I felt like my personal stylist did an amazing job of finding “my style”. These looks are definitely something I could picture myself in day-to-day.
I’m definitely planning on doing StitchFix again (sorry, Adam) and recommend to anyone who wants to try out some new things. The process was extremely easy and I’m happy with the outcome.
