I indulge in retail therapy. I fall into a pattern of buying and don’t necessarily jump out of my comfort zone all too often. It is the reason I have several pencil skirts and flowy blue and/or purple tops.
That doesn’t mean I don’t want to try new things. Unless I have a personal shopper that really isn’t going to happen. I don’t have the money or time for a personal shopper.
Enter Stitch Fix.
Stitch Fix is a fun and easy way to keep your wardrobe up-to-date. We get your style and size preferences, then send you a package of stylish goodies to try on at home, in your closet, with your favorite jeans and heels.
For $20 a month (or per fix whenever you want it) a package of clothing is sent to you. The options are picked especially for you based on a questionnaire you fill out when you sign up. You aren’t under any obligation to buy any of the items sent to you, but if you do that $20 is applied to the cost of whatever you keep.
I asked them to focus on business casual/work attire and “laid back casual.” Gave them the price range and scheduled my first fix.
I received a denim shirt, a black flowy floral print top, a scarf, a navy button down, and a dress. My favorite part of the fix is the recommended wearing guides with each of the clothes.
Shirts are difficult because my petite frame usually means they are too big in all the wrong places. These were no different, they just weren’t flattering.
The scarf was cute. I already had a striped scarf and this one was $45 so I didn’t think it was worth it.
I absolutely LOVED the dress. Loved every piece of it. It made my waist look super tiny, and that is always a win in my book.
Returning the other items was really easy. The fix comes with a pre-stamped envelope to send whatever you don’t want back. You just have to do with within 3 business days. To finish off the fix you log back on and tell them what you liked and didn’t like.
There is a wait list, but honestly if you are trying to work new clothes into your wardrobe it is a great way to do it.
