I’ve been stuck in a style rut, but luckily one of my coworkers turned me on to Stitch Fix. For those of you who don’t know, Stitch Fix is a fun online company that assigns you a personal stylist who chooses fashionable items that suit your needs. On the website you provide your stylist with your sizes and complete a simple style questionnaire. You have the option of writing her a note including your requests, and you can even provide her with the link to your online media like your Pinterest page. There is a 20 dollar style fee, but if you choose to buy any of the items, the fee goes towards your purchase. You have 3 days to decide which days items you want to keep and which items that you want to return in a prepaid envelope. It’s really easy and the anticipation of the unknown makes it so much fun.
My first box just arrived from Stitch Fix and I couldn’t be happier. It came with a style guide to help to help me mix and match the pieces.
1. Kathy Striped Fit & Flare Dress
This is such a cute dress and I think it is very flattering. I can dress it up or down and wear it season to season.
2. Octavia Tina Checkered Infinity Scarf
I would have not have picked this out, but I really like it. It’s so soft and unlike anything that I have. (Please excuse my pasty legs.)
3. 41 Hawthorn Colorblock Lizzy Striped Sweater
This sweater reminded me of other shirts and sweaters that I own, but once I had it on I knew I had to keep it. It’s soft and comfortable. I like that the stripes on the body are different from the stripes on the arms. It’s a nice detail.
4. Market and Spruce Clove Twist Back Cardigan
I was not crazy about this cardigan when I opened the box. It was expensive for something that’s not very flattering and aside from the color, a bit boring. One plus is that it doesn’t attract dog hair.
Verdict: KEEP (Only because if you keep all 5 items, you get 25% off.)
5. Pixley Sofia Hammered Square Collar Necklace
I liked this necklace so much that I wore it right after I opened the box. It can dress up any outfit.
(Sorry for the bathroom photo. It’s my only room that has good light at night.)
I really enjoyed doing Stitch Fix. It was fun to start thinking about my style and it got me moving in a better direction. The anticipation of getting my box in the mail was almost as fun as opening the box and playing dress up. My stylist, Monica, really got me. I would definitely do it again. I wish they’d offer a teacher discount.
