Have you guys heard of Stitch Fix? I hadn’t until my friend Watson brought it to my attention a couple of months ago. It works similarly to Birch Box, for those of you familiar with that system, but for clothes and accessories instead of beauty products. (Promise I wasn’t compensated for this endorsement, by the way.)
Essentially, you sign up online and answer all these questions for your stylist. You pass along your size, what look you’re after, and what types of clothes you’re most interested in (tops, outerwear, accessories, etc.). Then they show you images of several styles, and you rank them based on how “you” they are, to give your stylist a sense of what you’re going for.
Then it’s time to schedule your fix! You can set it up so that Stitch Fix sends you a package each month automatically, or you can register fix by fix (I went with the latter). Each fix costs $20, and if you keep any items the $20 goes toward that purchase.
My first fix arrived last week, and I was way more excited than I’d anticipated. They send you five items at a time, and it’s a great way to not only have a fashionable surprise arrive right on your doorstep, but also for discovering new designers and brands. In my fix were two flowy tanks, a pair of black pants, and two sweaters. Everything fit great, and I opted to keep one of the items — this lightweight Olive and Oak sweater with adorable buttons down the back (my sweater is black, though). Cute, huh?:
In each shipment is a pre-paid envelope to use to send back any items you didn’t hang on to — super easy. Before you mail the extras back, though, you fill out a quick online survey to let Stitch Fix know what you liked and didn’t like about the items, their sizes, their prices, etc. That way, the next fix can be an even better one.
Anyway, I’m pretty sold on this whole Stitch Fix thing so far. My next shipment is scheduled to arrive on April 15, so I’ll let you know if that one’s a winner, too.
Has anyone else tried Stitch Fix? If so, what’s your experience been?
