Stitch Fix is like having your own personal stylist. It’s an easy process where you answer a few questions. A stylist then sends you a box with a number of items. You keep what you want and send back what you don’t like. It’s an enhanced version of online shopping. I’ve been using this service for the last 6 months.
How StitchFix Has Helped Me
Stitch Fix has been a great way for me to incorporate pieces into my wardrobe that I wouldn’t normally pick out for myself. I do a lot of shopping to find new pieces to share with you guys. However, I have a tendency to shop a lot at stores like Nordstrom, J.Crew, and Ann Taylor. Every month I’ve been able to add a few new pieces that allow me to introduce new styles and trends into my wardrobe.
In my first box ever with them, I was actually introduced to my now all time favorite jeans from the DL1961 line. I have worn them weekly since I received them. Now they’re one of my favorite brands to buy for petite women.
This particular box I got 5 pieces. I got the slip dress by Vince and a Theory sweater. It came with a pair of booties by Sam Edelman and a black ribbed dress.Then I also got a pair of DL1961 jeans that I’m actually wearing right now.
I wanted to show you several ways you could wear these pieces so you’re going to see a number of different looks for each one. The black dress was sent back because I already have some similar items but I did like the way it looked with the turtleneck. I wouldn’t necessarily wear it to work but it’s still a great piece to have in your closet.
I love slip dresses and this slip dress by Vince has been so great to style. You can style it with a turtleneck and booties or even heels. The denim I paired with a turtleneck is just an easy every day look to get you out of the door. The Theory sweater can be worn with jeans as seen in the 4th look which is a look completely done with items in my Stitch Fix box. Today for the final look I actually paired the sweater with the Vince slip dress.
How Stitch Fix Works
Sign up. If you use my code, the first box is on me! They’ll wave the $20 styling fee for all my readers. When you sign up, download the Stitch Fix app. From there you’ll answer a series of questions to help your stylist determine your style. Be patient. This is a tedious process, but the more they know (ie. price points, styles, sizing) the better informed they are to send you the best Fix!
After you fill out your profile. Stitch Fix will start working their magic! Your stylist will curate a box especially for you. The Fix is sent to you with all your items, what I love most about the system is that they write a note telling you why decided to pull certain pieces. They also give you ideas on how to style these pieces in several different ways. You can decide to keep everything, one thing, two things or nothing! It’s totally up to you.
Be sure to try on everything once the box arrives. If you decide to return anything, simply put in the prepaid mailing package and send back to Stitch Fix. They’ll bill you for the items you decided to keep. Now you enjoy your new clothes.
What’s so great about Stitch Fix is that they have them for men and women! So if you significant other needs a little wardrobe refresh, sign him up for Stitch Fix and let him decide what he likes and doesn’t like. No buying and returning for you. Just ask him to put the things he doesn’t want and send back to Stitch Fix.
A Few Stitch Fix Tips
Try the pieces you wouldn’t normally pick. Some of my favorite items in my box ended up being things I would never have grabbed going into a store. Think of the service like a friend picking out something great for you.
One of the biggest tips I can give you is to fill out the feedback forms. It’s actually one of my favorite features of the app. It’s intuitive and easy to use. It gets the information back to your stylist quickly so it can be applied to your next box. Whether it was a sizing issue or if something was out of your budget, it will be reported and adjustments will be made. You can also mention things such as liking a brand or a particular style. From my experience, the more feedback you give the better the boxes will be.
If you’re really busy and don’t always have the time to find those great pieces or feel like you’re in a style rut Stitch Fix is a great option. It really is an easy to use service to add a few new items each month to slowly expand your wardrobe. What’s great too is you can always send back the items. There’s no obligation to buy if it just doesn’t work out for you.
If any of you currently use Stitch Fix I’d love to hear what you think. For those of you who decided to try it out let me know how it goes. Be sure to share some of your favorite pieces with me. Sign up here and you can waive your first styling fee on your Stitch Fix order!
