After reading about Stitch Fix on scores of blogs, I knew that I wanted in on the action. Because all the cool kids are doing it.
When you sign up, you'll fill out a questionnaire about your style, body shape, interests, needs, etc. They ask height, weight, and a lot of questions about your style personality. Really they're just asking you the same three questions in about five ways to make sure they're understanding you. For instance, the first time they asked me if I was bohemian, I thought, heck no, I'm not Nicole Richie. Then a couple of questions later they asked me again and showed me a picture of what bohemian was, and I realized, Yep, I'm def classic and preppy. Send me some argyle sweaters folks! Each box contains 5 items your personal stylist chose especially for YOU. How much fun is that!? They give you the opportunity to jot down a few things you're looking for in your box as well as linking up to a pintrest board your stylist can use for inspiration.
And if you like the whole box, you get 25% off all the items. Otherwise you pick a price point for your stylist to work within. Me, I'm on the cheap end. Mostly because all of my jewelry I can get at F21 for $4 :) You pay an initial $20 stylist fee and then if you choose to keep an item, your $20 goes toward paying for the item. Super! Anything you don't like goes back into a pre-paid postage bag that you stuff in your mailbox. Couldn't be easier.
In my box I received, I got a sweater dress, an infinity scarf and three shirts.
|Every piece comes with a styling card with ideas on how to wear what they've sent you.|
|It was cute but I couldn't see it being one of my favorites. (again, problems with my pictures being fine and then uploading sideways - what gives?)|
|88 dollars?! Really!? But I did appreciate the style ideas.|
|It was a nice shirt. Just not my nice shirt.|
Overall, I think Stitch Fix is really fun. I think that the items your stylist chooses only get better as you refine what you like and dislike and they get a better feel for who you are. I'll definitely be putting this on my Christmas list this year.
