I know I don't usually post about products/etc., but I wanted to share a little about about Stitch Fix. Making it relevant to what I usually discuss, I'm working on developing my personal style that makes me feel happy and authentic. Thus Stitch Fix to the rescue!
So what is it? Stitch Fix is one of those trendy box deliveries with cool items in it. In this case, clothing personalized to you! You have to complete a short survey about your style preferences and your measurements. Before you ship you can also add in personal messages, like "I really need a dress for my friend's wedding reception"/etc. They recently expanded their line to include men's as well as women's sizing from 0 - 24. While it's not on my radar at this point in my life, I hear the maternity clothes are beautiful too.
In the past I have purchased several items each time. Above are my favorite jeans, purchased from Stitch Fix. They fit perfectly. I've also kept cute summer tops, a blazer, an amazing Papermoon kimono top, a maxi skirt and a dress. Little bit of everything. The quality is consistently great and my stylist is usually spot on for enhancing my personal style.
How does it work? First off, there is a $20 styling fee for Stitch Fix to put together a mix of five items that match your preferences. Good news, if you keep something from your delivery that $20 is applied to your order. If you keep everything from your fix, you get a small discount! If you don't keep anything from your fix, you lose your $20. :( I have yet to not like at least one thing in my fix though. You get three days, from the delivery date, to try things on in the comfort of your own home. If you don't like something Stitch Fix provides a pre-paid envelope to send back those items! It's pretty easy and always fun.
Now that we've covered the basics, let's get on with the real review of my current fix!
This was the first item that I pulled out. Cute on a hanger, but fit a little weird around my wide hips. I'm also not super partial to the lace shoulders--what bra do I wear?! This was returned.
Love. Love. Love. I'm all about the kimono tops, over-wear, etc. The FRINGE! This one I kept. :)
However, this one I was not all about. This military green vest, with a removable hood, was not so much my forte. I tried it on anyways, but the shape was not very flattering. This was sent back.
Item #4 was a maxi skirt. I absolutely love the maxis that Stitch Fix sends me, but I have so many and I wasn't big on this geometric pattern. This item was also sent back.
The last item was a pair of jeans that are meant to show your ankles. Excuse the selfie photo, I forget to get a pic of them on a hanger! I went back and forth on these since they were the same brand/fit as my favorite green jeans. However I just couldn't get into the short ankle look. These went back too.
All in all, out of the five items I only kept one! Although I think it's important to mention that I did have a different stylist than usual. She did go back and see that I loved my green jeans--the reason why she the blue ones above. Also every time you get a fix, you give feedback on why you returned an item and what you loved about the items you keep. This ensures that your fix will keep getting better over time. Maybe my next one will be all winners?
Anyway, I'm enjoying my new Stitch Fix top and as you can see my cat, Sookie, is enjoying the box!
