My second Stitch Fix package arrived last week and it was just as good as my first one! Stitch Fix (<–referral link!) is a personal styling service and is ideal for someone like me, who hates shopping, never tries anything out of my comfort zone, and has no idea how to style the pieces I actually own! It’s also great if you don’t have time to shop, are looking for specific items each season, or just love new clothing in general!
When you sign up, you take an in-depth survey about your clothing sizes, style, and pricing preferences. After reviewing this information, your personal stylist will send you 5 items to try. The fee for this service is $20, which includes free shipping and free returns. If you keep any of the items they send you, you get to deduct the $20 fee from the total. (If you keep all five items, you also get a 25% discount!)
Now that you have all the basics… on to my experience!
This time around, my note to my stylist focused on fall work outfits. I specifically wanted a sweater dress and a non-pencil skirt. I updated my Pinterest board to include dresses, skirts, and fall outfits that caught my eye. Make sure to update your board often! I’d also recommend following StitchFix on Pinterest so you can re-pin any clothing they highlight. It just might show up in your box!
Once again, I found myself eagerly awaiting the day my box would arrive and wished I had scheduled it sooner! When you receive your box, you have three days to decide what items you want to keep and what items you want to return. There is a “Checkout” option in your online account to let them know what you’re keeping (and paying for) and provide feedback on all the clothes. This is another great opportunity to tell your stylist about your likes/dislikes. Your credit card is only charged for the items you keep (minus the $20 styling fee!). A USPS bag (for the free shipping) is provided in the box to return the other items. I also figured out that the USPS will pick up packages from your doorstep, so I didn’t even have to make a trip to the post office!
Here’s what I received in my second box:
Leaf Necklace ($28) – This is a long gold leaf necklace (apologies for the terrible pictures) that I really like, but I think I can find something similar for less money. This isn’t the type of necklace I’d have tried on my own, so I’m very happy my stylist sent it. RETURN
Crew Neck Sweater ($68) – I was torn about whether or not I should keep this sweater. It is extremely soft and heavy, making it perfect for cold winter days, but it didn’t have the fitted shape that I like. It was a great sweater for lounging, but at $68, I couldn’t justify it. RETURN
Rebekah Blazer ($88) – This is my favorite item from this box!! I like the look of blazers, but never felt comfortable picking one out for myself. My stylist knocked it out of the park both with the fit and style. It’s 3/4 length sleeves which is great for my long arms and has a polka dot pattern on the inside that peeks out when you roll the sleeves : ). Plus, it exactly matches the blue dress from my previous Stitch Fix so I can wear it with the dress to the wedding this weekend! KEEP
Haneli Polka Dot Swing Skirt ($54) – This high waisted skirt is another winner. It almost touches my knees, so it’s a good length for work and is lined, making it feel more substantial. Now I just have to figure out what to wear with it… KEEP
Gilli Striped Dress ($78) – I was skeptical about this dress as soon as I pulled it out of the box. Since I had asked for a sweater dress, I was a bit disappointed that I received this one instead. It wasn’t horrible, but the material is clingy and I wouldn’t feel comfortable wearing something that tight to work. RETURN
This box was another hit for me and the dress was the only item I didn’t consider keeping. Even more than than before, this box contained pieces that I wouldn’t have picked out for myself, but absolutely love. This service has certainly lived up to it’s reputation!
