My second Stitch Fix through the Annual Style Pass program arrived last week! 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 didn’t include any requests. I didn’t need any particular pieces of clothing, so I decided to leave it up to the stylist. Usually, I use the option to add a note to help ensure I’m getting what I 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 May box:
Mix by 41 Hawthorn Knit Top ($38) – I laughed when I pulled out this sweater, because I received the exact same style in my last fix. This was just a different color and material. Still the same weird pockets/folds though. Sigh. RETURN
Just USA Denim Jacket ($68) – It’s a bit hard to believe these 80’s fashion staples are making a comeback. I’m just not a fan. RETURN
Jolie Knit Maxi Dress ($48) – I love the idea of maxi dresses, but I’m always too nervous to pick one out for myself. I loved the style and colors of this one, but it didn’t fit quite right. I’m glad my stylist sent one, though and I’ll be asking for more options in my next box. RETURN
Papermoon Marple Henley Blouse ($38) – This didn’t stand a chance when I pulled it out of the box. I adore polka dots, especially navy and white, but the material was awful. RETURN
West Kei Lace Detail Knit Top ($42) – Although the color and lace on this tank top were perfect, I prefer fitted tops to wear under sweaters for work or with jeans. RETURN
Now that I’m not paying a $20 fee for each box, I’m scheduling my fixes on a more regular basis. I know I won’t be able to afford to keep items each time, so I was happy to send back all five items. I’m looking forward to another maxi dress in my next box and maybe I can finally start wearing spring/summer-y clothes!
