Are you interested in trying an online styling service with curated picks delivered right to your door? If the answer is yes, it might be time to check out Stitch Fix. I first heard about Stitch Fix from my work colleagues. They would come to work with some cute outfits and accessories that they had purchased from the company and, of course, me being a fashion junkie, I was very interested to try it out for myself.
How Stitch Fix works is you create an online account and then fill out a style profile, with your fashion preferences and sizes. Then you choose a date when you would like to receive your Fix, and a stylist is assigned to you. The stylist will select five pieces, and you can write a note to let them know if you have any certain style preferences for this Fix and they will take it into consideration. The Fix arrives right at your door with a personalized note from your stylist about the item and also includes a sheet that shows you how to style the pieces. There is a minimal cost involved, which is twenty dollars for your styling fee. If you do purchase items, that twenty dollars will be deducted from your final total. For the items you keep, you can purchase them from your account or the app on your phone. Then, for the items you want to return, they provide the shipping bag and label and you just have to drop it off at you local post office. Easy breezy!
A few things I like about the service is that you can schedule a Fix at any time and you aren’t locked into a monthly or yearly membership. Also, the items I have purchased are good quality, and I especially love their booties. Some drawbacks are if you are on a budget, it can get a little pricey. I can’t justify buying an item unless it’s going to be a staple in my closet or an absolute must-have. Also, there have been times when I don’t like anything they send me (which is rare, but it happens).
If you are interested in trying Stitch Fix or would like to purchase a gift card for the holidays, you can check out their website. They have also expanded their lines to now include men and kids. Happy Fixing!
