I joined Stitch Fix in October. I heard about it from a friend of mine and figured I should give it a shot. It was right around the time when I was interviewing for Verity Mom. I even wrote a post about taking care of yourself as a mom for my interview process. I forgot to take good pictures of the first box, but I loved it sooooooo much that I ordered another.
And this is what I got:
If you haven't heard of Stitch Fix before, it's an online personal shopper. It'a amazing. Basically you fill out a questionnaire on their site that tells them your style. For instance, I told them that I don't wear dresses, skirts or tunics. I also requested they don't send me any jewelry because I don't wear that either.
Now each month, they send me 5 articles of clothing. I get to try them on in the comfort of my own home and I have three days to return what I don't want. It's a tad pricey (details below), but it's all name brand stuff and really nice. It's awesome.
Shirt #1: Camellia brand 3/4 sleeve stripped shirt. $28.
I loooooooved this shirt. It fit nice and I loved the colors. It would work really well with layering too. It was machine washable, also a plus. I only did not choose this shirt because I liked the plaid one below better.
Oh I loved this sweater. I loved everything about it, the colors, the style, the feel of the fabric. I had it in my keep pile for about two hours and kept trying it on because I needed to find something wrong with it. The only thing I could find was it was dry clean only. That was the deal breaker. (Don't mind the photo bomb by Dexter, he insisted on being in the pictures)
I loved this shirt too. I loved the color, the flannelly feel, the fit. Everything. It's sliiiiiightly tight in the bust, but most button down shirts are. Thank goodness for camis. I had to have Matt being the tie breaker and he picked this shirt.
This cardigan was a little heavier than it looks, it's a super thick fabric. It's comfortable as heck though. I really liked it. But it was $108 so it was not going to find a home in my closet.
There was nothing about this shirt I liked. I didn't like the fabric. I didn't like the colors, I didn't like the cut. I felt very very frumpy in this shirt. It also is the least flattering shirt I've tried on in a long time. The minute I put it on, I knew it was not for me.
So my total bill was $20. How did I do that? Well, it's like this. When you sign up for Stitch Fix, it's $20 fee. If you decide to buy something they send you, they apply subscription fee to your purchase. If you decide to order everything, you get additional 25% off your purchase. It's incredible. I love that I don't have to go to the store. I love that I get to try on things that I wouldn't normally pick out. What did you think of my choice?
Edited to add: Whatever you don't keep you have to send back or they charge you. The best part though is they send you a pre-paid shipping envelope so you just dump the rest in the mailer and drop it in the mail box. Easy peasy.
