In case you're new to Stitch Fix, here's a quick run-down on how it works: I've gotten eight fixes overall (one I didn't have time to review). Although I usually only end up keeping 2-3 pieces, those items I DO keep I find myself wearing the most.
Stitch Fix helped me realize that I tend to wear the same few items over and over– the ones I invested a little more money in. I have a bad tendency to buy quantity over quality when it comes to clothing, so I have tons of cute cheap clothes that fall apart in less than a year.
With Stitch Fix, it’s like having a personal stylist and shopper. You get to choose the price range for each item, how often you want your fix and add specific notes for the fix. For example, for several fixes I've requested dresses for specific occasions.
Your fix also comes with photo ideas for how to wear the items (with clothes you may already own.)
- $20 styling fee upfront, but you get to deduct this from the items you decide to keep
- set a schedule for your fixes (like monthly) or schedule as the mood strikes
- set up a detailed style profile + include twitter and Pinterest links (gives your stylist a better idea of your personality)
- choose the price range you’re willing to spend for each category
- 25% discount if you buy all 5 items
- 3 days to decide which items to keep
- the shipping is free to return any unwanted items
- $25 for each person you refer
Here's what I got in my latest fix:
I left my comments completely blank for this fix to see what would happen.
And you know what? It was one of the best yet. I ended up keeping everything!
Which meant I got the 25% discount for keeping all 5 pieces. I was pumped.
Thanks Katie! You did an awesome job.
1 + 2. Mauli Stitch Detail Knit Top + Adorra Skinny Jeans - Kept
I'd prefer the top to be a little longer, but overall I love it. It's super soft and thin, so it can be worn through different seasons.
3. Bastille Tulip Sleeve Blouse - Kept
This blouse is perfect for dressing up or down (as you'll see below).
4. Heidi Scallop Hem Pencil Skirt - Kept
I don't wear skirts often, but when I do have to meet with clients I love the opportunity to dress up. This skirt is timeless, so it's a great addition to my more professional wardrobe.
5. Benson 3/4 Ruched Sleeve Blazer - Kept
The blazer is another piece I could dress up or down because it's a cotton material. It's also the first flattering blazer I've found. Most of them make me look really boxy and too masculine.
Stitch Fix Updates
Stitch Fix recently released an iPhone app, which I'm hearing great things about. You can upload a profile photo to make the experience even more personal, and it makes leaving notes for your stylist easier than ever. You can also preview what you'll be getting in your fix before it arrives.
I don't have an iPhone, so I couldn't actually use the app. But Stitch Fix did send me this adorable selfie stick for being a Stitch Fix Influencer!
Did you know Stitch Fix also offers gift cards?
You can have it mailed, emailed, or print it out yourself. You can choose from amounts starting at $20 and up.
If you want to get me something but don't know what.... ;-)
