I keep seeing everyone else's blog and Facebook posts about their Stitch Fix boxes arriving, and I finally decided to give it a try! Where I live, our shopping options are rather sparse. Although I live an hour outside of Nashville, where there's great shopping, I never have time to make a trip down there.
Enter Stitch Fix.
For those of you who aren't familiar, Stitch Fix is a subscription service, like BirchBox, Ipsy, and others, but for clothes. Here's how it works:
- Create your Style Profile, a relatively short, but thorough, survey about your style preferences, size, and amounts you usually spend on different clothing items.
- Select from their available shipping dates.
- Your stylist uses your style profile to select 5 items to send you.
- Receive your box, and try everything on at home. This way you can get feedback from your spouse or friends, and try things on with clothes and accessories you already own.
- Keep what you want, send back what you don't - in a prepaid USPS envelope (couldn't be easier!)
- Hop online, tell your stylist what you thought about everything, and pay for the things you kept.
You can sign up for automatic monthly shipments or just one shipment at a time, which I loved. There is a $20 styling fee that you pay before they ship your box, but if you keep anything, it counts as a credit towards your purchase. And if you keep everything, you get 25% off!
Here's a peek at my box (sorry these pics aren't the greatest):
Claudia Banded Dolman Sleeve Top - This fit really well, but I wasn't sure about the color on me. Fortunately, I tried it on again after my hair appointment. Now that my hair color is just a little darker, I love this color! It was a little more than I usually spend on a knit top, but I'm keeping it! Bonus - they are made in the USA!
My FAVORITE part: They include these awesome styling cards to help you figure out how to wear each piece! Plus, my stylist included a personal note with some tips and reasons she chose certain pieces. I'm aleady signed up for my March Stitch Fix, and I can't wait!
