My summer Stitch Fix 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 $25 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!)
Usually, I add a note to help ensure I’m getting what I want, but this time I let it completely up to my stylist. 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 August box:
Beratan Leather Slingback Flat ($88) – These shoes were OK, but way out of my price range. I generally wear the same few pairs of shoes all the time, so I’ll make a note in my profile that I don’t want any shoes in the future. RETURN
Lillie Cuffed Denim Short ($58) – I’m kind of the same way with shorts as I am with shoes. I have a few go to pairs that I wear all the time. These shorts were comfortable, but I just didn’t need them. RETURN
Colette Cold Shoulder Knit Top ($28) – The sleeves on this t-shirt were unique, but I have a decent amount of purple already in my closet. RETURN
3/4 Length Striped Knit Top ($34) – Usually I’m a sucker for stripes and I seriously considered keeping this top. However, in the name of saving money, I decided this is a piece I can easily by on my own. RETURN
Green Lace Sleeveless Blouse ($38) – I probably should have kept this to wear to work, but it just didn’t wow me enough. RETURN
This box wasn’t a slam dunk, but I recognize that I gave my stylist no ideas and hadn’t updated my Pinterest board in months. I am also trying to be a bit more selective about what I keep to avoid spending a ton of money!
