My First Stitch Fix

Monday, May 4, 2015

Chances are you have heard of Stitch Fix already, as it has been becoming more and more popular.  I you haven't, though, you really ought to check it out!

I have been seeing Stitch Fix on a number of blogs, and finally decided to go ahead and try it after months of thinking about it.  It has been increasingly hard to shop with a little one running around who is less and less inclined to sit in the cart or stroller anymore, so I thought this would be a great way to shop without having to leave the house!  I was right.

Stitch Fix is a unique personal styling service that brings new clothes and accessories, tailored to you, straight to your door.  To begin, you fill out a detailed survey about your body type, style, preferences, and any special requests you may have for your shipment.  For instance, I noted in my survey that I am a mom of a toddler, so I need comfortable, functional pieces, but I wanted something a little more stylish than my everyday routine of basic tees and tanks.  I also told her that I live in Southern California, where it is getting hot, and I prefer sleeveless or short sleeve styles, dresses, skirts, and shorts.  I specified that I do not want outerwear, jeans, or accessories.  There are different price points to choose from, and for all of mine I put "the cheaper the better".

Next, you pick a date for your delivery.  You can choose to get a one-time Fix or to get one shipped to you as frequently as every two weeks to every few months.  A few days before your delivery date, a stylist picks out your items and you will be charged a $20 styling fee.  If you like any of the five pieces you are shipped, you pay for them and the $20 is credited toward your purchase.  Whatever you don't like you ship back, but if you do not keep anything, the $20 credit is forfeited.  There is a bag included with prepaid shipping that you have 3 business days to return unwanted items in.  However, if you love everything and choose to buy it all, you get 25% off of your total purchase, which is awesome!  I have seen quite a few ladies keep it all.

Now onto my first Fix!

I was so excited for my first Stitch Fix to come, I woke up feeling like it was Christmas morning.  Of course, of all days my mailman was late, ugh!  But better late than never!  Here is what I got:

1. Misa Embroidered V-Neck Top by Skies are Blue $44: I wasn't sure about this top when I pulled it out of the box, but when I tried it on, I loved it!  It was too big for me, so I sent it back.  I did debate keeping it for a while, though, and decided last minute that I probably wouldn't wear it as blousy as it was.  

2 & 3.  Topson Crochet Detail Blouse by Fun2Fun $38 and Lya Geo Print Short by Skies are Blue $38: I really liked both of these pieces straight out of the box.  The top is chiffon with crochet detail on the sleeves and back.  It was a little big, and I have something very similar, so for the price I figured I should send it back and just use what I already have.  The shorts I was on the fence about.  I wanted to love them because they are so comfy and they have pockets (I LOVE pockets), but they are pretty see-through, and I am not one to fuss over uncomfortable undergarments (slips, Spanx, etc.), so back they went.  

4.  Brie Printed Dress by Skies are Blue $68: I disliked the print on this dress from the get-go, and thought the style was a little old for me, but when I tried it on I was surprised that it did look cute.  I had asked for a dress and mentioned that I like v-neck or henley style necklines, so my stylist was right on target with what I asked for.  She also picked the palm tree print since I said I live in So Cal, which was sweet.  All in all, I didn't love it and it was too big, so back it went.

5.  Edmond Chevron Print Henley Shirt by Pixley $54: I had seen this top in another color and loved it, so I added it to my Pinterest board in hopes of receiving it or something similar, and was so excited when i saw it in the box! It is so comfortable and fits great.  At $54, it is more than I typically spend on a top, but since it was the only thing I kept, I decided to splurge.  I am so glad I did, because I have worn it a ton since!

I had originally scheduled my Fixes to come every other month, but I was so pleased with this first one that I changed it to a monthly shipment instead!  I cannot wait to see what my next Fix has in store!  If you are interested in Stitch Fix, check it out.  I think you will be pleasantly surprised!
