Stitch Fix has saved me! That might sound a bit over the top but what I mean is Stitch Fix saved me from myself! Anyone who knows me well will attest to my love of shopping and I must admit my closets have been overly stocked! I love the thrill of the hunt and touching the items so why would I gush over a company that sends me items in the mail that I never selected? Simple, it keeps me out of the stores (pretty much) and I have a personal shopper. When the box arrives I get the shopping thrill and can’t wait to tear into that box to see what I got. I can try the selections on at home with items I already own. All of this excitement for a styling fee of $20 which can be applied to anything I buy. The things I don’t want go back to Stitch Fix in a pre-paid envelope after I ponder the beautiful things they send for 3 days.
Another reason I love this company is the items Stitch Fix stocks are generally exclusive and not found in stores! I don’t see myself walking down the street unless I run into another Stitch Fix groupie! I’ve also noticed that Stitch Fix is able to style women of all ages even those near retirement age like me. Finally, the stylist always writes a personal note that includes ideas on how to style the items along with style cards showing two different ways to wear each item. It’s wonderful, I tell you!
I’m seriously trying to cut back on what I buy and spreading out my Stitch Fix boxes over months is very helpful. More on how the company works later but for now I want to share my latest fix.
My box arrives with items neatly wrapped in tissue.
I had asked my stylist to send bright spring colors, no work clothes and maybe some flats. I had also pinned some ideas on my Pinterest style board that Stitch Fix had posted as new items. Christina certainly delivered!
I had read that Stitch Fix was adding shoes and look what I got in my box! FFX New York Brooke Two-Tone Flats that go perfectly with a top you’ll see later. They come in a cute bag too. Love these shoes and kept them.
The next surprise was the tote that I had pinned on my Pinterest board. I love the zippers and snap closure so things do not fall out. There are pockets inside large enough to hold my i-phone 6s and a nice lining. Octavia South Hampton Tote. Kept it too.
Next up is an orange top. I styled it with black jeans, the new shoes and new tote. Love it! There is mesh detailing on the shoulders and a zipper front. Pixley Jimson Zipper Detail Top. Kept it!
I had requested a red top and I love the style of this one. A bit of a peasant look but not too flowy. Daniel Rainn Bienville Button Down Top. Kept.
The only item from this fix I did not keep are the Mercer Cory Distressed Skinny Jeans that I’m wearing with the red top. I liked the fit and color but really can’t justify paying $108.00 for a pair of jeans with holes in them! Not my style so they went back. If I had kept them, I would have gotten 25% off of the entire order.
I highly recommend trying Stitch Fix. There is no long term commitment and you decide how often you want a “FIX”. You fill out a detailed survey about styles you like, sizes, colors, etc. There is a section to write a personal note to your stylist before your fix. That’s where I mention items I saw on their blog or customer reviews, colors, upcoming events, etc. to help my stylist with my selections. I don’t always keep everything and at least once I sent it all back but I often get things I would have never picked and end up loving them and wearing them often.
