My Saturday turned out even better than expected when my 3rd Stitch Fix arrived two days early! Stitch Fix (<–referral link!) is a personal styling service that 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… check out my 3rd box!
In the past, I asked for a few specific things in the note to my stylist. For my 3rd box, I wanted to give her more flexibility. My only request was a pair of colored skinny jeans (something I’d never pick out for myself). I updated my Pinterest board with a few sweaters and jeans, but didn’t spend too much time on it this month. Make sure to keep an eye on your board and update it at least once a season to give your stylist even more ideas of what you’d like to see in your box. I’d also recommend following StitchFix on Pinterest so you can re-pin any clothing they feature. It just might show up in your box!
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 discovered that 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 third box:
RD Style Chantrey Cable Knit Sweater ($78) – I can’t believe I even tried on a $78 sweater, but I’m so very glad I did. It’s perfect. I have a hard time finding sweaters that are long enough and are fitted rather than boxy. This one is both! Looks like I’m getting myself an early Christmas present 🙂 KEEP
Kut From the Cloth Skinny Corduroy ($48) – I asked for colored skinny jeans and my stylist delivered. Who knew corduroy was ridiculously comfortable? I wish they were a tiny bit longer, but I still love them. KEEP
Market & Spruce Cable Knit Elbow Patch Cardigan ($58) – Initially, I was on the fence about keeping this sweater due to it’s slightly short sleeves. However, the cute elbow patches and overall comfy-ness won me over. KEEP
Brixon Ivy Clover Print Blouse ($64) – This style and silhouette of this shirt was great, but the print was too much for me. It felt a bit like one of those magic eye puzzles where a shape appears after you stare at it for three hours (does anyone remember those??) RETURN
Gilli Sweater Knit Pencil Skirt ($58) – Wow, what a print! I’m not a huge floral fan, especially on a skirt? Again, I liked everything but the print with this piece of clothing. The skirt was made of a ridiculously soft stretchy material, like a sweatpants skirt. It would have been a pleasure to wear to work, but realistically I know it would just sit in my closet. RETURN
Third box…three items kept! According to this pattern my boxes keep getting better and better. I’m still astonished at how much I’m loving this service. Even as a self-declared super spendthrift, I don’t mind paying more for clothing I know I’ll love and wear.
