So I found out about Stitch Fix through Jen‘s blog a while back, and I thought it might be fun to give it a try so that I can write up a little review for you guys! I shop just for all of you, because you’re worth it. And because I have a shopping addiction. The first step is recognizing it! The second step is ignoring it. Moving on.
Jen described Stitch Fix as “super fun and awesome for Moms who don’t have time to go shopping for themselves” which I realize doesn’t really apply to me, since the only one who calls me mom is my little fur baby, but I was intrigued. So I decided to check it out. Basically they ask you to fill out a style profile and then send you 5 items to try on, giving you three days to decide what to keep. There’s a $20 styling fee to get sent the items BUT they use that $20 as a credit to whatever you decide to buy. And if you decide to buy everything the whole kit and caboodle is 25% off!! Woot! I hope I spelled caboodle correctly!!
What an adorable little box!
omg there are clothes & accessories in there!
They even give you a little how-to card for ideas about how to style each item- so bueno!
The next step of the process is to try everything on, see how much each item costs, decide what to keep and what to send back in the already labeled bag they provide. SO easy. Then you go to their website to let them know what you’re keeping and give feedback about your fix.
You can ask for one fix and call it a day, or you can set it up to get one each month. I have to admit it’s pretty fun seeing the package on my doorstep waiting for me to unwrap my fix like a crazy wide-eyed child, just like when I was doing Le Tote. There were a few things I didn’t really like, the main thing being the prices of the items. In my style profile I listed that I wanted most things to cost on the lower end of the spectrum, and in general that’s what they gave me. But I’m so used to buying things at super low price places like thrift stores, TJ Maxx, Target and Old Navy, that it’s hard for me to pony up the cash for things that are higher prices than I’m used to. (I never ended up buying all 5 things from any of my fixes).
Also, I really enjoy styling myself! I’m one of those weirdos that gets super excited to go shopping- in real stores and online- and pick out clothes to join the party in my wardrobe, so, having someone else style for me was fun for a bit but in the end I’d rather do it myself. BUT, if you are a super busy mom (human mom or pet mom), someone who hates to go shopping or just want to try something new, you should totally give Stitch Fix a try! If you don’t shop as often as I do then it’s worth it to spend a little more money on quality, adorable clothes for yourself if you stay within your budget! If you do give it a try, I hope you’ll let me know how it goes! Ok, end of spiel.
Now, go enjoy your weekend!
