For those who don't know Stitch Fix is a company that mails you a "fix" - a box of 5 clothing items and accessories or shoes based on a personal profile you complete on their website to tell them some of your preferences and needs. There is a $20 styling fee, but that is applied toward any purchase you make. Anything you don't want to keep, you send back in the postage paid packaging.
Here is what I got in Fix #2:
1. Waffle Knit Cardigan ($48). I love cardigans and have had several bite dust recently so I really liked this!
2. Cross Front Knit Top ($48). This liked this top okay. I like the colors but wouldn't normally choose a pattern like this. My husband loved it though. I do like the fit quite a bit. This would have been an amazing shirt when I was breastfeeding.
3. Crew Neck Knit Top ($44). I love black and the fit of this top!
4. Bootcut Jean ($78). I am in serious need of bootcut jeans. All I have right now our skinny jeans or yoga pants. These fit and feel amazing! I would not normally pay this much for jeans but I really like these and I don't have to shop for them!
5. Abstract Print Infinity Scarf ($34). I really love scarves but do not need another one. But there is was a discount for purchasing all 5 items in this fix (amounting for more than the cost of the scarf), so...
In the end, I bought everything. I've started another job doing telehealth from home 10 + hours per week and I simply don't have time to shop anymore. I'm pretty desperate for bootcut jeans and while I'd never pay $78 for jeans in a store, these were delivered right to my door and look great on! No spending 2 hours trying on 25 different pairs from 5 stores!!! Since I am working (and generating a bit of income) my husband gave me the okay to make the purchase! If you purchase all 5 items there was a significant discount. So guess what? I bought all 5!
What I liked:
- Getting to try new clothes
- Delivered to my door. I didn't have to try on millions (slight exaggeration) of jeans to get a decent pair.
- Styling cards with outfit ideas
- Clothes I needed in my fix and a couple trendier items I wouldn't pick out but ended up loving
- The ability to leave feedback after each fix so your stylist knows you better and is more likely to sent items you'll like
What I didn't like:
- The cost. This is still more than I would usually spend on clothes but the 5 item discount helped.
If you have a decent clothing budget, are a busy mom or a working mom Stitch Fix can be a really great option! If you decide to try Stitch Fix, I'd love it if you used the links in this post.
