If you aren’t familiar with Stitch Fix, here’s the scoop:
Basically, it’s an online styling service. You create an online profile with your likes and leave it up to the stylists to pick out items. Based from this information, they send you 5 articles of clothing that get delivered right to your door. You can chose to have it delivered as little or often as you like.
It’s $20 a fix, but as long as you keep one item you can apply that toward the price. So you only lose money if you don’t keep a single thing (and you get a 25% discount if you keep it all!).
Then from there, you can try everything on and figure out what you want to save and what you want to keep. A prepaid USPS envelope is included for easy returns for items you don’t keep.
And then you know what happens, right? I try all of the items on and I suddenly need it all. That’s what I love most about Stitch Fix. The items that my stylist chooses for me are not always necessarily items that I would first pick out for myself which ultimately makes me step out of my comfort zone aka style rut.
This month my stylist did an awesome job based on my requests and my clothing inspired board on Pinterest. Lets take a look at what showed up on my doorstep this month. And excuse my cheesy modeling looks. Bahahahahahahaha!
Renee C – Dalia Split Neck Top – kept
Kut from the Kloth – Aviva Boyfriend Jean – Kept
I purposely requested the cropped jeans. It’s the pair that every single person is receiving from Stitch Fix lately. I was hoping for a lighter wash and was hesitant about keeping this pair even though they fit great. I had just bought a very similar pair the week before. Oh and then my dad, I mean Ron, said “You’re going to pay $78 for ripped jeans?!?!” I definitely had to point out to him that he sounded like an old fuddy duddy when he said that. Definitely a keeper.
Market & Spruce – Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Tee – kept
This tee is super soft and oh so comfy. The color is perfect. The one thing that made me hesitant about keeping it? The price. It was just a plain tee after all. I could get four of them at Target for the same price. But with the discount for keeping all 5 pieces, it was worth it.
Papermoon – Garland Geo Print Maxi Skirt – kept
Street Level – Anchorage Striped Canvas Tote – kept
I love the idea of a Maxi skirt, but have never been able to find one that fits just right. Every single one just makes me look like a blob. In my mind I was already sending this back as soon as I laid eyes on it. But then I tried it on. You guys, I want to live in it. Super comfy. My stylist suggested I wear it with the Hi-Lo Tee. I’m not sure I like the two together. I felt very frumpy. With a denim jacket, though, it was much better. Although I’ll probably find something else to wear with it from now on.
I love the look of this tote. It just screams summer and nautical to me. However, I didn’t really need it. I had plans to send it back until I decided to keep at least three of the items. It actually ended up being like the tote was a freebie then. Reminder to self – take off the tag before you actually use the tote!
I went back and forth on whether to keep all 5 items. I didn’t absolutely love every piece. But with the discount, it made it worthwhile. And once I decided to keep it all, I really started to love every piece. I’m glad I kept everything. I definitely will be wearing each piece all summer long.
