You guys. I did it. I jumped on the bandwagon and joined Stitch Fix. For whatever reason, I've been hesitating for a long time now. But I finally just bit the bullet and decided to do it! It was a completely spontaneous decision, but one I am SO glad I made! I really see this coming a bit of an obsession for me. Not sure whether that is a good thing or a bad thing, lol. But, it is certainly exciting!!
Let me start off by explaining a few details about Stitch Fix:
- First you sign up for your first fix.
- Then you fill out your style profile. This helps the stylists select clothing that they think will suit you.
- Your stylist then chooses 5 items based on your profile.
- You choose your price range.
- The items are sent to your home (no shipping fees), and you then try them on. Keep what you like, send back (in the included pre-paid postage envelope) what you don't want.
- There is a $20 styling fee, however this can be used to purchase any of the items you are sent!
- If you decide to keep all 5 items, you receive a 25% discount.
- You then give feedback on your fix. It's extremely important to be very detailed for your futures fixes!
To put it simply, it's sorta like having your very own personal stylist...and who doesn't want that?!
I was very, very detailed in my style profile. I expressed my love for all things stripes...and was pleasantly surprised when I opened my box!
That's a whole lotta stripes!! Yayyy!!
I also thought it was kind of neat that they included a little card that provided a few examples on how to style the pieces sent.
Okay. So what was in my box? What did I think of the process, and what did I keep?! Also, I'm apologizing in advanced for the dirty mirror, messy bed, no make-up, and messy top knot.
Item #1 - Avicci Colorblock Stripe Knit Shirt
You guys. They really hit the nail on the head with this one. This shirt is SO me. The color. The stripes. The fit. I am in love. I could wear this with jeans, as shown...and I think I could even pull off wearing this top with a pair of white pants, to dress it up a bit! This is an obvious keeper.
Item #2 - Corinna Striped Heathered Dolman Top
When I first saw this in my box, I was really excited. I love the colors...and obviously, the stripes. It was so SO soft. But when I tried it on...ick. It was way to big and baggy on me. So disappointed!
Item #3 - Delmont Lace Detailed Chambray Shirt
I knew I wouldn't like this shirt. It is just so not me. The lace detail on the shoulders was probably the worst part about it. It just reminded me of an old lady shirt. At least my photo bomber is cute!!
Item #4 - Walt Striped Skirt
This is another item I knew I wouldn't like. It's a knee-length skirt, and VERY tight. It had a zipper closure in the back, that I couldn't even zip up! It wasn't very forgiving for my (almost) 8 month post-partum figure.
Item #5 - Lorna Diagnol Stripe Maxi Skirt
I honestly wasn't sure how I was going to like this skirt. I love maxi skirts, but I didn't know how the diagonal stripes would look. But you know what? I REALLY liked it! I think it looks pretty good on....and even better, because I'm so incredibly short.....
...it doubles as a dress!! Yep! I just hiked it up a bit, and voila! I'm keeping this one too. I'm even more excited that it's kind of like getting two outfits out of one with this one!!
So, there you have it. I'm keeping 2 out of the 5 items they sent me. I really don't think that's all that bad, especially for my first fix! In fact, I think I'd call it a successful fix, if I kept at least one item.
I was very specific in what I liked/didn't like in the feedback. I even already scheduled my next fix!! If you're looking to join, please sign-up through my link!
Also? I would LOVE some feedback on my fix. What did you like? What didn't you like?
