a.) a busy mom
b.) intimidated by shopping
c.) a fashionista
All of the above?? Good, you’re like me. Let me tell you about a little service called Stitch Fix. Clothes, doorstep, F-U-N.
Here’s the rundown:
-Schedule a one-time box or choose a monthly subscription
-A stylist will send five items based on your preferences and comments
-Packages come complete with styling suggestions and a personal note
-Pay a $20 stylist fee that gets refunded if you purchase something
-Keep the things you love, return the others free of charge
-$55/piece is average, but you get 25% off for buying everything
These prices might seem a bit steep but they make up for it in service and style. All of your obsessive pinning might even pay off since they pay special attention to your fashion board, how cool is that? I was very specific about what I was looking to add to my wardrobe and they delievered. My stylist was very thoughtful, even if she didn’t nail my style; that gets better with time as you provide more feedback and specifics. In a way, this service helps narrow your own style down because you’re forced to think about it in a way you usually don’t. For example, I learned that I don’t care for round jewelry.
Onwards! Here’s what I got in my first Stitch Fix as chronicled by my crappy cell phone in our old apartment:
- Mystree Marsha French Terry Crochet Detail Jacket, $68:
I was in a frumpy cardigan rut and this sweet little moto jacket pulled me out of it. I love the incredible crochet detailing on the back. I have already worn this tons. Totally worth the investment. I do wish it was an edgier charcoal color, but that wasn’t a deal breaker since it’s so unique and versatile.
Status: Kept that baby
- Pomelo Wrenn V-Neck Jersey Top, $44:
This jersey tee had a lot going for it- nice drapery, fun color, comfy, the ability to be dressed up or down, but I just couldn’t justify the price.
- Tart Galena Solid Pleated Ponte Skirt, $78:
This skirt was adorable. I enjoyed the color, fit, and comfort, but was hoping for more of a swingy pleated skirt. Maybe even pleather. Rwar. Oh well! Better luck next time.
- Bay to Baubles Glendale Small Beaded Bib Necklace, $36:
The necklace was cute, but it felt too preppy for me. I prefer angular, geometric shapes over rounded ones.
- Renee C Melody Longsleeve Cowl Neck Dress, $58:
This dress was a nice mix of covered up yet sexy. It was almost a keeper, but there was a hole in the seam. Yikes! They were willing to compensate the mending but it was not worth the risk.
I might have kept more, but I was on a one-item-only budget. Feel free to sign up using my link, I’ll get some credit added to my clothing cookie jar. Thanks for stopping by!
