I mentioned a few weeks ago that I had placed my first order with Stitch Fix and was anxiously awaiting it’s arrival. My girlfriend has been using it for a while and I finally caved and placed an order. In case Stitch Fix is new to you, it’s a personal styling company who hand selects five items based on criteria you give them. The more information you give, the better able your stylist will be able to make the best selections for your size, shape, style, budget and lifestyle. You pay a $20 styling fee, but that fee is applied to any of the items that you decide to keep. You choose the date for your delivery and have the option to schedule it as often as you’d like, or sign up for monthly deliveries. There aren’t any obligations.
In case it wasn’t obvious, I love shopping, but central PA isn’t exactly a shopping mecca. Even when I did live in the city, my children often did a great job preventing any shopping from happening. And many of you with full-time jobs may absolutely love this idea (whether you enjoy shopping or not) because you get to shop right out of your home with clothing and accessories selected just for you. It really is a genius idea.
Here’s how everything looked when it arrived:
In addition to the clothes, a styling card is sent with each item to give you ideas on how to put various looks together. The process is laid out very clearly, so there’s not much confusion to be had.
Here are the contents of my box:
I knew right off the bat that the colors on the dress weren’t going to be the best for me, but I was interested to try out the fit. And I don’t know if it’s only me, but I have a hard time ordering pants online. Every pair seems to fit differently and I can never tell unless I’m in the store with dozens of pairs to compare, so I was iffy about these.
I snapped some lovely bathroom pics while I tried everything on to give you an idea of how everything looked:
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with everything. The sizing was right on point. To my surprise, the pants fit like a glove! I do have them on in these shots, although they’re rather hard to see. I loved the blue top. It’s a great year-round color and had a nice drapey fit. The jacket was a beautiful shade of green, but the fit wasn’t amazing on me. The white blouse was very pretty, but I had similar tops in my closet already. And the dress was so soft and comfortable! If only it had been in a different color/pattern I may have kept it. In the end, I decided to keep the pants. I would have kept the blue top as well, but it was priced just slightly higher than I was willing to pay for it.
Also worth mentioning, is the fact that you receive 25% off of your total shipment if you decide to keep all five items. I definitely plan on placing another order, so maybe next time I’ll get to use that discount! For now, I can’t wait to wear my new pants!
Check out Stitch Fix and have a look for yourself! Worst case scenario is that you’re out $20 which you’d potentially be spending on shipping from other stores anyway! If you do try it, let me know what you think, I’d love to hear!
