I have mentioned Stitch Fix a few times on my blog, but never went into detail much on it.  Here’s the scoop:

Stitch Fix is like having your own personal shopper.  When you register, you go through a style profile, picking items you like and don’t like.  You go over things like “I like to show off my…” and “dislike to show my…”.  They ask your sizes, height and weight.  They also ask for things like your pinterest account, instagram, twitter, blogs, etc. so they can see what you like to wear.  Then comes the fun part, you get to schedule a “fix”.  You can schedule monthly fixes or just on an “as needed” basis and you can go in and set a date.  You can also request certain things like, “I have a wedding coming up, please send a few dresses”.

Then, you receive a “fix”.  It is a cutely packaged box wrapped up in tissue paper.

IMG_4071You are assigned a stylist, who writes you little notes.  This fix, I had Alexandra, who I requested after she did a fabulous job on my first fix.  It also includes the prices of each item.  They ranged from $38-88:

IMG_4072 This time, my note said “no clothes with animals :)” as per my request (my last fix had an abundance of them, and I learned I don’t like them on my clothes).

Each item has a little note-card with suggestions on how to wear the items.  You are encouraged to try everything on to see how it looks, even if on first glance you think “nah”.

IMG_4075Here was my first item this month, a cute blue sleeveless dress.  I loved the color and style and really wanted to love it on.

IMG_4073 When I put it on, I liked it.  It was flattering.  My only thing, I would want to wear it to work and it is a bit short for that.

IMG_4082IMG_4079Otherwise, I would have kept it.

This was the next shirt.

Look at the cute detail on the buttons:

IMG_4089I tried the shirt on.  It fit well, but I thought it was a bit tight on my belly.  I have a fear of looking like I have a pouch.

Then I tried on this super soft skirt.

IMG_4085 IMG_4101It was…ok.  The only thing was, the price was too high for my taste.  I felt I could find a similar item for cheaper.  And the color is a bit “eh”.  But I tried it on…

I didn’t love it, but I did love the pockets.  I think it should be a law that all skirts and dresses have pockets.  The Pocket Law.  I should start a petition.

Next was a cute white shirt, the Jack by BB Dakota.  I was excited for this instantly.  I pictured myself being able to wear this to work and for fun.

IMG_4094I tried it on and…

Last, was a pair of jeans:

Naturally, they are a bit long.  I am short, all pants are.

Then I did the “back-pocket test”. Please tell me I am not the only one that does this.

Final verdict:   They are comfy, and it’s hard to find jeans that fit just-so.  But, I have a lot of dark wash jeans.

I did keep the white tank!

I logged into my account and bought the shirt.  As for everything  else,  I let them know why I didn’t keep it to help my next fix be even better.

For the items I didn’t keep, I packed them into a pre-paid envelope that Stitch Fix sent along and mailed them back with-in 3 days.  I am only charged for what I keep.

It is nice to have the clothes delivered to my door, where I can try them on with items I already own.  Plus, who doesn’t like surprises?
