Well, I tried stitch fix.
Mainly I tried it because I hate shopping. It overwhelms me. When I need clothes, I call a friend to let me raid their closet, and by “raid their closet” I mean I ask them to pick something out for me for whatever last-minute event I have to be at, and they so kindly oblige.
But I figure maybe I should adult-up a bit and get my own clothes. Enter Stitch Fix.
I don’t know where I first heard of them, but I decided to ante up the $20 styling fee and give them a try. And now…
I HAVE PICTURES AND THOUGHTS FOR YOU!
First, the pictures! The first item in my first fix was this blue dolman top, WHICH I ADORE. I was very clear in my Stitch Fix profile that I love dolman tops and wanted one. They heard me. Thank you Meagan (my stylist) for putting this comfortable, flattering top in the fix. WIN.
I know some of you are going to ask about the shoes. Yes, they are SO CUTE, and I totally ordered them from Zappos after seeing my friend Amy in them (yes, that Amy). But ya'll, I'm returning them because I cannot walk in them. So sad. And so painful.
Next up is this soft denim "chambray" shirt. I don't know what chambray means, but I really like it.
The thing is, I have a denim shirt, so I'm not sure what I'm going to do. Also, it's expensive. But really comfortable. And it fits. I may or may not have gained a few pounds and have a tight situation in the other one.Ahem.Well, as far as styling goes, it's a WIN.
I know, those shoes are cute too. They are not from Stitch Fix, although Stitch Fix will send you shoes to try if you want them to. I asked them not to send me shoes.
Last top in the fix was this pretty little lacy thing. I asked specifically for a white lace top (per my Pinterest style page), and they delivered. The only problem is that it's too big.
The last piece of clothing in the fix was the jeans, which I'm wearing in each picture. They fit great, but (and tell me if this is me being too old), I can't justify buying jeans with a purposeful hole in them. No on the jeans. UPDATE: I have come to like jeans with holes. Felt like I should let you know.
Last item in the fix were earrings, which are cute, but I'm not sure...I'm a dangly kind of girl, so, we'll see.
Here’s a couple other fixes I have received (ignore the gray hair, it was a stage that is now over):
Now for my overall Stitch Fix thoughts! Isn't this fun?
Stitch Fix PRO's
I am happy to report that YOU DO NOT have to get a box of clothes every month! You can schedule your fix for every two-three weeks, monthly, every other month, or every three months. This is a major plus for me because every three months sounds just about right. I get to avoid the shopping places while still getting to be cute. TOTAL WIN.
Did I mention with Stitch Fix I don't have to go shopping? This is the biggest pro for me, and what is likely to make me keep getting fixes.
The stylist for me pretty much NAILED IT. She listened to what I wanted, and delivered. She couldn't have known that I wouldn't want holes in my jeans, and I didn't think to add that information.
You send back whatever you don't want. There is a prepaid shipping label and packaging and everything you need to pop into USPS and send the items that didn't work for you back.
You can earn free clothes. When you sign up to try a fix for $20, you get the option of having a referral link to earn free clothes. Hi. I like that. Thank you. Here's my referral link if you want to try Stitch Fix. :)
Stitch Fix CONS
I really only have one con, and it might be me not understanding the service (I am a newbie, remember). But I thought when the stylist sent me items, they sent along ideas for how to wear jewelry with it.Okay, now that I wrote that sentence I feel silly, because why would they do that? They did send a paper with ideas of outfits (see above). I put in a note in my profile that I wanted to know how to wear necklaces with shirts . I was hoping she would have sent necklaces to try with each top. Ah well. Maybe next time. Meagan, if you're reading this, HELP A SISTER OUT! I need to know how to style necklaces with tops, for reals.
WIN WIN WIN WIN! I feel like my stylist rocked it. I am VERY happy with my fix and will keep using Stitch Fix. YAY! No more stealing clothes from Amy and no more wandering the mall like a zombie! PERFECT FIT.
