Have You Heard of Stitch Fix?

IMG_0159If you follow more than just my blog, then you might have heard of a service called Stitch Fix. What is Stitch Fix, you ask?

Well, basically, it’s an online styling service. You create an online profile, link to some of your Pinterest style boards so they know what your tastes are and leave it to the stylists! Based from this information, they send you 5 articles of clothing that get delivered right to your door once a month.

Then from there, you can try everything on and figure out what you want to save and what you want to keep.

Want to send a few things back? Pop everything into a prepaid USPS envelope and drop it in a mailbox.

Want to keep a few things? Just log onto your stitch fix profile and check out! The total amount gets deducted off your credit card with a receipt sent to your inbox.

A few things I love about this service:

-I have an infant and a busy 4 year old, therefore making clothing shopping something I NEVER {and I really mean never} do.

-I am fashionably challenged for sure. It’s nice to have someone pick out clothes for you!

-Each box seems to be getting better. You can leave comments about each article of clothing you get. The more feedback you leave, the more info the stylists have to use, the better your box gets.

-You can pick your price points. If you’re uber cheap {like me} then you can select the “the cheaper the better” price option! Or choose what you feel most comfortable with.

A few things I don’t particularly love about this service:

-Ok, this isn’t necessarily something I hate…more like an FYI: before you buy anything from Stitch Fix, you pay a $20 styling fee. This is the cost for the stylists to pick clothes for you, box them up and ship them. BUT, if you decide to keep anything from your fix, that $20 gets applied towards the cost of the clothes.

-Sometimes you get hits, sometimes you get huge misses. It’s sort of like a weird fashion lottery. I’ve gotten two boxes and have kept 4/10 items total.

Wanna see what I got? Ok, here we go:

Screen Shot 2013-09-17 at 9.55.37 AMThis outfit came from my most recent box: green skinny jeans with this white top. The jeans were a little long and a little tight…but aren’t skinny jeans supposed to be tight? I was definitely on the fence about these, but ended up keeping them. Also, totally in love with this top. It’s slightly form fitting, but was loose in all the right places I needed it to be to hide the leftover baby chub. SCORE.IMG_0517This was another item I got in my 2nd box as well. I tried it on and thought it was just ok. I probably would have kept this if it was cheaper. Haha! I’m a total cheapskate you guys. Sent it back.IMG_0524Another 2nd box FAIL. I specified I didn’t want sleeveless tops, and so this was sort of an automatic thumbs down. Also: gold chain attached to the shirt? REALLY? Yikes….Sent it back.IMG_0532This necklace was ok, but I’m so not a necklace person. I wear them sometimes and think they look uber weird on me. I don’t know why. Also, I have a 4 month old who’s grabby. Not a good combination. Sent it back.Screen Shot 2013-09-17 at 9.57.05 AMThis was a black dress I kept from my first box. It fit me like a glove, so I kept it. Also, there were these adorable silver studs I kept too. I’m wearing them in this picture, but you can’t really tell. Also in my first box: a semi cute shirt that wasn’t worth the $90 price tag, black leggings {that I already had} and a really bad red shirt that did not fit me well at all!

See what I mean about big hits and misses? I seem to LOVE some items and hate others. But, overall I’m pretty satisfied with the service, especially because I keep getting good stuff that makes up for the bad. Also, it keeps me away from the mall. Win-win!

    Loving you in that black dress!
    I’ve heard about this. I’m VERY petite and find it hard to find clothes that fit properly. That and the price tags of the items are pretty much why I haven’t tried Stitch Fix out yet..

    I like the things they’ve sent you, more than the ones they sent me! 🙂 That outfit and black dress are adorable on you! My first box was a dud. I felt like they sent me the opposite clothes of what I said I preferred. I kept an ADORABLE necklace, but it broke the second time I wore it! Luckily, I was able to fix it! Hoping for better fixes in the future!

    I love that white shirt!!
    I had filled out the profile but was also wondering about prices. $90.00 for a skirt?! That’s a little too pricy for this thrift store shopper. I think I’ll stick with ThredUp? Have you heard of it? It’s an online thrift store but they only sell items that are in great shape or new. I got 6 items in my first box (2 still had tags) and loved all of them! They also have easy returns and the best part is that my order was only $60.00 or as I like to say $10.00 an item =)

    I just received my 2nd box. Same results a hit and miss — actually worked out the same for me 4/10 items. I thought my 2nd box is getting closer. I think I’ll give it another 2 months before making a final decision.

    I love that white top on you!
