After a year long break, I decided to give Stitch Fix another try for the fall! Stitch Fix (<- referral link!) is a personal styling service that is ideal for anyone who doesn’t have time to shop, is looking for specific items each season, or just loves clothing in general. UPDATE – For a short period of time, StitchFix is waiving the $20 styling fee for your first shipment!! Use my link to snag this offer.
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!)
This time around I specifically requested plum colored jeans and winter dresses I can wear to work. Writing this note to your stylist is terrific way to make sure your clothing is customized to exactly what you want. Also keep your Pinterest board updated! You can follow StitchFix on Pinterest and 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!
Check out the five items included in my November box:
Bay to Baubles Lambert Long Circle Pendant ($28) – I normally like these long pendant necklaces, but this metal circle just isn’t my style. RETURN
41 Hawthorn Roma Textured Striped Pullover ($78) – LOVED this sweater! It was cozy and warm and super soft. Plus the sleeves and torso were actually long enough for me. Unfortunately it just cost a bit more than I was willing to pay. RETURN
41 Hawthorn Chaya V-Neck Pullover ($68) – Another lovely soft sweater. Apparently 41 Hawthorn is my go to brand. Again though, too expensive for my taste. For a basic grey sweater I’m expecting a cheaper price point. RETURN
Edyson Windsor Straight Leg Corduroy ($78) – Finally!! I was thrilled to find these pants in my box since I’ve been looking for plum jeans/cords for a while. They fit perfectly and I can’t wait to wear them! KEEP
Kensie Norah Crochet Detail Dress ($78) – I love the color of this dress and the crochet detail, but it’s just not work attire for me. I’m looking more for sweater dresses or long sleeve tunics to wear with leggings. RETURN
After a year, I was pleasantly surprised that I liked so many of the items in this fix. I’m still not planning to get shipments monthly, but I’ll probably have another one delivered closer to Christmas.
