I’m sure you saw me tweeting and blowing up the social media world with my referral code for StitchFix
. I’m all about testing out new subscription services and from what I’ve seen from other bloggers, this one looked promising!
After a few weeks, I was off the wait list and my first “fix” was in the mail.
Here’s how it works:
- Fill out a style profile that is very detailed to help you stylists pick the perfect pieces for you. Don’t be afraid to share pinterest boards!
- Schedule your first “fix” for $20. That $20 goes towards any of the 5 items in your fix!
- Receive your hand-picked goodies, try them on at home with your favorites pumps, belt and accessories. Log into you account online and checkout for the items you’re keeping. (Bonus: you get 20% off if you keep all 5!).
- Send back everything else and schedule another “fix”.
When I opened the package, I was super excited to see colors and patterns that I loved! I pulled all the items out but was way too sore/exhausted from the half to try anything on.
I was anxious to get home from work on Monday to take a good look at all the items.
I apparently have zero “selfie pic” taking skills. Please excuse the fact that these pictures are beyond hilarious. You’ve been warned.
The first item I ruled out pretty quickly were some great Kensie black skinny jeans
. They were a tiny bit snug (but probably would have stretched). I didn’t pick them because I already own a very similar pair and I couldn’t justify the $88 price tag.
The next piece I tried on, I thought I would love. I loved the coral and navy colors and I don’t have a top like it. Unfortunately, the way the sleeves were cut, it made my shoulders look sorta broad. I tried it on twice and almost kept it in the end but for $68, I just wasn’t sold. How hilarious is this picture…After this point, I realized that I was not capable of the “selfie” pic and resolved to just shooting the item. How boring.
The next item again had promise. I don’t have a top like it but I think I know why now. The silky, flowy, billowy tops just don’t work on me. I don’t fill them out right and it ends up looking like a sack. The black was also pretty boring. $55
When I pulled this dress out of the box, I was pumped. I thought it would be great for work but also for play with some cute boots. However, it did nothing for me when I put it on. The back was very sheer and the way the skirt part laid on my just looked odd. The pattern was a little old-fashioned looking for me. $55
This was the last item I pulled out of the box and also the item I thought wouldn’t fit, even though I did like it. Surprisingly, it fit (mostly) great. It’s a little roomy on top, but I’m used to that. I can easily have that part taken in. Otherwise, it fit really nicely. I liked the color on me and added a nude belt and nude pumps to see what it would look like for “going-out”. This ended up being the “winner” item and it only cost me $13 because I used my $20 fix fee plus a $25 credit ($58 total). I wish I could have snapped a better picture of me in the dress with heels and such but I’m working on training my personal photographer (aka C).
I think I’ll definitely schedule another “fix” in the future. It would be a great service for a special occasion or trip (like our honeymoon!) because you could be very specific in your stylist notes about what you’re looking for. Overall, I think my stylist picked items that I wouldn’t have normally tried on but were definitely my style. I think that’s the point of the service – getting you to try on stuff that you wouldn’t normally pick up. I liked being able to grab shoes and accessories to try on with the items. I probably wouldn’t have purchased the blue dress from a store because I liked it so much more with my own belt and shoes. Great job StichFix! I can’t wait for my next one!
I was not compensated for this post, I just like great ideas! If you sign up with my link though, I’ll get $25 in credit! Help a sister out!
