When Stitch Fix offered me their Annual Style Pass for $49, I couldn’t resist. So, they’re back in my good graces for now. 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 giving a $15 credit to new users! 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!)
For this fix I asked for sweaters, jeans, and other wintry type clothing. Writing a 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 March box:
T4T Monica Legging ($38) – I couldn’t tell if these were workout leggings or everyday wear or both? Regardless, I couldn’t see myself wearing them for either. RETURN
41 Hawthorn Abriella Waffle Knit ($48) – This sweater was cute and versatile, but the folds were sewn in place and that was confusing. Are they pockets? Are they just folds? RETURN
Kut from the Kloth Simmons Bootcut Jean ($88) – Once I got past the sticker shock, I put on these jeans and didn’t take them off for hours!! These are probably the most comfortable jeans I’ve ever found. Sadly, in a rare occurrence, they were too long! I also generally prefer straight leg or skinny jeans. RETURN
Pink Clover Raglan Sleeve Knit T-shirt ($40) – I let out an involuntary “oooohh” when I touched this sweater – the material is ridiculously soft. It’s a perfect light casual sweater to wear…well everywhere. I’m never taking this off. I’m literally wearing it as I type. KEEP
August Mist Grommet Detail Pullover ($48) – I’m normally a sucker for navy and white, stripes, and gold details. However, the material of this item was just strange. A bit scratchy and it felt stretched out. RETURN
This fix was a hit! Just one or two tweaks and I would have considered keeping all the items. Since I can get unlimited fixes for a year with my Annual Style Pass though, I’m only planning to keep items that I absolutely adore. Stay tuned for my next box in April.
