I don’t know how Stitch Fix does it.
How is it possible that I can spend hundreds of hours of my life in fitting rooms trying to find a pair of jeans that fit great, and a total stranger – someone who’s never even seen me! – can do it based on my answers to a few online questions?
That’s what happened with my first Stitch Fix.
I signed up for Stitch Fix – an online personal shopping service – after seeing my friend Allison’s impressive first “fix.” Here’s how it works:
- Sign up online.
- Answer a variety of questions (height, weight, age, how much you like different parts of your body exposed, feedback on example outfits, your budget, etc.) to create your style profile.
- Pay a $20 stylist fee and receive 5 items in the mail, selected just for you.
- Keep and pay for what you like (your $20 stylist fee is applied as a discount toward whatever you decide to keep). Send back the rest in the enclosed postage-paid packaging by dropping it in any mailbox – including the one in your front yard!
- Refer your friends and get credit toward future fixes!
I really hate shopping so Stitch Fix is a dream come true for this girl. All five items in my first fix were things I wouldn’t have picked out for myself if I saw them hanging in a store, but I ended up loving four out of the five! In addition to the clothing and accessories, you also receive a personal message from your Stitch Fix stylist, and a style card for each piece showing suggestions of what to wear it with. Here are my cards from my first fix:
And here’s a look at two of my Stitch Fix keepers and how I wore them:
Top: Daniel Rainn, via Stitch Fix
Necklace: Bay to Baubles, via Stitch Fix
Bag: Kate Spade
Shoes: Banana Republic Outlet
This top is definitely not something I would have even tried on in the store, but I love it! It’s loose and flowy, with a subtle white polka dot pattern (love me some polka dots) and smocked detailing across the back, at the front of the shoulders, and on the sleeve. It’s interesting and just a little bit different.
I’ve always loved the look of these stacked bib necklaces, but every time I see one in person there’s something about it that isn’t quite right. This one, however, is perfect. Thank you, my Stitch Fix stylist!
I’ve already touted my love for this Kate Spade tote, so I won’t wax poetic over it again. It’s the perfect punch of color.
My favorite things about Stitch Fix?
- I don’t have to leave my house or fight crowds at the mall.
- I get to try out unique pieces that I likely wouldn’t find on my own.
- I set my budget and tell them how much I’m willing to spend.
- Whatever I don’t like I can easily mail back from my mailbox.
- Shipping is FREE both ways.
