Lately I have been hearing a lot about different little boxes of fun things that you can get sent to your house. I have seen women’s clothes, dog toy boxes, dinner boxes, baby items, kid’s clothes even men’s clothes. Basically there is a surprise box of stuff for anyone and everyone. I have always been a sucker for things like this. Does anyone remember going to little shops where they would have grab bags. Items all packed up that you buy but you can’t look inside. I always loved these things growing up. I thought they were just so exciting… I obviously still do. So when I heard about Stitch Fix I just knew I wanted to try it.
To sign up you give them normal information that you always give out. The next thing you do is fill out your style profile. It asks you all about your size and what you like about yourself. It has you pick pictures that you like and different style combinations and rate them. It also gives you a place for a note. This is handy for anything you been wanting to try or anything you feel like would help them style you. It’s very important to fill out the whole profile and even link a Pinterest board to it. I did this and I have already received stuff that I have pinned.
After you have done all this you set up how often you want to receive your fix. I set mine up for every month to start. I mainly did this because I wanted to get a couple fixes pretty quick so that I could give a good review on the clothes and the costumer service. Honestly, now that I have got two I think I may keep it coming every month because I am so pleased with what I have been getting.
A couple things to note is in my experience they cost around $200 depending on what they send you, but that seems to be the average. This seemed high to me. I’m not gonna lie, with my first fix I had sticker shock. Keep in mind that you don’t have to shop, you don’t have to make decisions and it gets dropped at you door as often as you like. This, to me, is worth the extra cost. You get 5 pieces. This could be tops, bottoms, dresses, jewelry, shoes and accessories. You can request things that you want to try or tell them about pieces that you already have. I have done this and it has proved to be handy in my fixes being what I like and want. Also if you keep everything you get 25% off. They also charge you a 20$ style fee but if you keep one thing that comes off the item.
If you do end up retuning things they send you a prepaid bag to send them back in so you don’t have to pay shipping. You use that same bag if you want to send back for an exchange. I have kept everything they have sent me. I have loved a couple things and just liked others but to me its worth keeping it all and getting that 25% off. Out of both of my fixes I exchanged sizes and their costumer service has been very easy to work with. This most recent fix I actually wore the shoes once and thought they fit and after about an hour or so they gave me blisters. I emailed Stitch Fix and they are going to exchange them for a bigger size. No hassle at all. I love this about them.
I’m going to share with you some pictures of what I got. Mainly because it gives you a better idea of what to expect; And I’m going to link this in with my style profile so my stylist can see shots of me in all my outfits. 🙂
A little summary on my April fix. Mainly I was sticker shocked with the price. Once I got the 25% off and divided it by five I didn’t feel as bad. I loved 3 out of the 5 pieces and like the other two just fine. Over all a good experience even with an exchange.
A little summary on my May fix. I was happier with this one then the first. 3 out of the 5 pieces fit perfect. I think it also helped that I had wrapped my head around the cost. I’m already excited and ready for my next fix.
