Review: Stitch Fix


Ladies and gentleman, I have a new obsession.
...and it's probably more expensive than drugs, so don't tell my man...
It's called  S t i t c h  F i x.

What is Stitch Fix?

Stitch Fix is a company that sells you clothing hand picked by a stylist to fit your size, shape, and needs.

How does Stitch Fix work?

You take a detailed quiz that goes over your size, shape and style.
After taking the quiz, you pick a date for your Fix to arrive and leave a note for your stylist.
It's important to tell your stylist what you're looking for and if you have any special events.
Note- It may take your stylist a couple of tries to get it perfect, but when they do, watch out!

Can you show us an example?

Yes I can!
Three weeks ago I placed an order with a very specific note.
I requested casual outfits for a trip to St. Lucia and specified the desire for a sundress and sandals.  I also requested a professional statement piece for a big corporate event I have within the next couple of weeks.  I reminded the stylist that I wanted items that couldn't be found in the store and that fit my very petite frame.
I'm probably more petite than you realize at 5'0 and 115 lbs.  This makes shopping a nightmare for me.


Four days earlier than my Fix was scheduled to arrive, it surprised me at the front door.  It was filled with a sundress, a romper, a business dress, a pair of shorts, and a white blouse.  It also came with a lovely little note from my stylist explaining how the pieces were meant to be worn.  She also apologized for not having any sandals at the moment in my size.
I ended up purchasing all 5 of the above pieces.
I mean, how couldn't I?  Look how lovely they all look!

Pros -  
-I've been sent some pretty fabulous pieces of clothing that fit my petite frame perfectly.
If you ever tried to shop for petite clothes in the store, you'll understand how big of a win this is!
-They have brands and pieces of clothing that are exclusive to Stitch Fix which means unique items.
-The stylist can put together a look for you that you otherwise wouldn't know how to do.
-You may discover a new look or trend that you weren't aware of.
-Their clothes and outfits lead to lots of compliments.

Cons -
-What they send you is dependent upon their current inventory.
-Sometimes the stylists don't get your actual style on the first or second try.
This is why it's so important to be honest with your stylist and give detailed feedback.
-In order to fit a "want", they may take a chance with a different size resulting in an unwanted piece.
-There is a styling fee that you pay for each Fix.  If you choose to purchase, that fee comes off the price.
-The pieces can get pricey so you need to be able to exert some self control.

I have been using Stitch Fix for a while now and it's usually great!
I did have a few bad Fixes when my original stylist either left the company or me.
After a few bad Fixes from stylists that didn't get me or my style, I finally found one that's perfect.

Have you or will you try Stitch Fix?

If you haven't yet and want to, holler out, because you and I would get $25 for friend referrals.

    1. LOL I mean, it's quite possible. I do get very defensive when they send me "small" regular clothes instead of petite. I could do that myself at the store. I pay the styling fee because I want petite choices that have shoulders and length that fit me!!!!!

  2. lol your original stylist left you? Were you too annoying? Or did she not want to go to the kids section to find clothes anymore?

    Sounds like a good way to do it though. As long as you get what you are looking for and it doesn't become a hassle.

    1. Me? Annoying? Absolutely not. ;)
      When I was in between stylists it was a bit of a hassle. I had a wedding that I had to go to and they kept sending me Fixes full of horrid clothes that didn't fix. It wasn't until I finally got my current stylist that it stopped.

  3. I like the concept, but clothing is something that I have to touch and try on in the store. I hate ordering clothes online because I hate the hassle of having to return most of it. I've know a lot of bloggers who do use StitchFix and love the service though. Thankfully, I'm not petite, so there are many options locally for me to choose from.

    1. Oh how I wish to be able to walk into a store and find things that fit. :) I guess it can be worse, so I'll try not to complain. Luckily, my father owns a dry cleaners with a tailor onsite. That tailor has really saved me throughout my 30 years of life...

  4. I'll be honest, I didn't read your post. I was too mesmerized by your pictures and well just stalked them all. Absolutely adorable! I can see the happiness all over your face. You love being a mom!! I'm so excited for you! I can't believe we lost touch like this. Not again, ma'am. Not again! Missed you lots, my friend!

  5. Those are some nice choices. I have trouble finding clothes that fit because I'm six and a half feet tall and weigh 66 pounds. Oy, the troubles I have.

    Love,
    Janie

  6. Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books. Sure, I understand. You are young you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a Vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, But how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity, I can help you solve any problem you are having
