Stitch Fix

One day last month, my friend, Karissa, came into work with a really cute pink dress on.  She told me that she'd gotten it from Stitch Fix and suggested that I give it a shot.

If you've never heard of it like I hadn't, it's basically an online styling assistant.  You complete a questionnaire to make sure they know what you like, what you don't, what you want more of, your sizes, price point, what types of clothing you're looking for (work, casual, going out), etc.  You can also provide the links to some of your social media profiles, like Pinterest, so they can get an even better idea of what you'll really like.  Once you complete your questionnaire, you pay $20/fix and they'll send you 5 clothing and/or accessory items.  The $20 can be applied towards your purchase of any of these. Once received, you have 3 days to send back what you don't want.  When you checkout online, you can enter why you didn't want to keep whatever you end up sending back, so you're more likely to get something you like better next time! You can get your fixes sent automatically every 2-3 weeks, month, or two months.  I opted out of the automatic fixes, but I think it would be a fun way to get some different things a few times a year.  

I just got my first fix in the mail yesterday (there was about a month wait period when I ordered).  I entered the lowest price point - something along the lines of, "the less the better".  I also specifically included in the comments section that I like tops that can be worn both at work and casually with jeans, as well as statement necklaces.  Here's what I received...



All 5 of the items in my fix (Aubrey not included):


They include a little styling guide that includes a couple different ways to wear each item:


#1. Riley Distressed Boyfriend Jean, $68

#2. Milan Lace Print Back Pleat Top, $58

#3. Kahlo Embroidered Solid Tank, $38

#4. Colibri Floral Print Sleeveless Top, $44

#5. Shelly Layered Ombre Stone Bib, $42


 I ended up keeping #1 and #3.  I really like the cut of the shirt, but it's kind of hard to see in the picture.  The necklace was a close contender, especially because I'm a sucker for anything ombre.  I ended up sending it back because I thought I could probably find something similar for less money elsewhere.  Plus, I already have my eye on a few other necklaces. ;)  Overall, I was happy with my first fix and would definitely recommend trying it.  It's pretty fun to not know what your stylist is sending your way!
