If you are unfamiliar with this incredible service, the concept is simple. Pay a visit to the Stitch Fix website and fill out your Style Profile. You'll answer questions about your body size and shape, as well as your favorite and least desired body areas (for example, I want to keep the girls covered, so that is on my style profile). You'll also answer questions about your personal style. Are you a classic girl? Like a little boho thrown in? Prefer edgy looks? All that is included as well. Link a pinterest board to your profile for extra style inspiration. You can list out your favorite colors and the types of items you'd like to receive. Since I live in South Texas, I have opted out of jackets and outerwear. Finally, you can set your price ranges for each item.
Then the magic happens.
A stylist reviews your profile and selects five pieces that she (or he) thinks you'll absolutely love. They are shipped to your door along with styling cards for each item. Try them on and mix and match them with items in your own closet (can't do that in the store!). Keep what you love and send back what you don't -- they send materials to make the return process a breeze. Each Fix has a $20 styling fee attached to it, but if you keep an item, that $20 is deducted from the cost of the item. Keep all 5 items? Give yourself an extra 25% off the total.
Beware... it's addicting!
So What Did I Get?!?!
PS: I apologize for the fuzzy photos. Not sure exactly what happened there, but it annoys me.
The shorts were also great. They fit well, had a nice rinse, weren't too short or too long. Unfortunately, I already had a pair of roll-up denim shorts in a very similar wash. I just couldn't justify spending $58 on a pair of shorts that were nearly identical to a pair I own already. RETURNED.
5. Papermoon Mirsilla Lace Detail Knit Top ($58) (jeans: Kut from the Kloth, earrings, Stella & Dot, baby: Ian) Hi Ian! Someone didn't want to be in his swing anymore, so he joined the photo session/fashion shoot. This top wasn't awesome. I know Sarah threw it in there because I love lace tops and lace details and lace lace lace lace... but this shirt just wasn't awesome. It was a boxy fit both in the body and in the sleeves, which wasn't flattering at all. I haven't jumped on the boxy trend because girls with major volume on top just look sloppy in boxy shapes. One thing I did really like about this shirt though was the softness! It was so comfortable on! That wasn't enough of a redeeming quality to save it though. RETURNED.
Had I kept all 5 pieces, I would have gotten the 25% discount. That in conjunction with some referral money (y'all are awesome!), my box would have ended up being about $34/piece, which is more than reasonable to me, especially for a dress. I'd totally consider this another successful Fix. I love that more fixes = more and more specific and well thought-out pieces from my stylist, Sarah.
If you're interested in giving Stitch Fix a try, I'd love it if you used my referral link here. It's where I can earn referral credits which will help to feed my Stitch Fix obsession!
