So I recently joined the shopping phenomenon that is Stitch Fix. And I’m obsessed! This newest obsession stemmed from my obsession with Birchbox. I was telling my friends Le-La and Sarah, of Swinny in the City, about it and Sarah told me she had heard of a similar service to Birchbox that was with clothing…aka Stitch Fix.
The idea immediately piqued my interest because I have like zero time to shop for apparel, and hate the guesswork of online shopping. Stitch Fix in a nutshell is a great online styling service that sends you “Fixes” containing five items ranging from sweaters, dresses, accessories, pants, etc. These items are tailored to your style choices which you select on your Stitch Fix style profile. You can also help your stylist get to know you better by creating a Pinterest Style page and pinning items you like to the Pinterest board.
The cost of “Fix”-ing is essentially $0. You pay $20 to schedule a fix, but can then use that towards the purchase of an item in your fix. You only forfeit the $20 if you choose not to purchase anything. And really no harm, no foul, because you don’t have to schedule another fix if you do not want to, or you can schedule one right away (which is what I did!) .
My stylest, “John M.” pretty much read my mind. Four out of the five items in my first fix were right on target. If you purchase all five items in your fix you receive 25% off your entire order, so I decided that even though I wasn’t in love with the fifth item, I was going to get it for $5 due to the 25% discount of the entire order, so I really couldn’t pass it up for that amount.
I will share a couple of my favorite pieces that I was able to find photos of online (I’ll post photos of my wear & tear in the future).
Item 1: Greylin Opal Silk Floral Print Sleeveless Top
This top’s bright floral pattern caught my eye in the box immediately . I have dark hair and light eyes, so this color scheme works well for me. The top is from Greylin’s Spring Collection and their lookbook is available online.
Item 2: C. Luce Colby Scalloped Trim Dress
This dress was so adorable! C. Luce’s site is Business-2-Business only, but their stuff is also available on Piperlime. Here is another dress (different from the one I purchased) that is swoonworthy by C. Luce:
Item 3: 41Hawthorn Enamel Box Chain Layered Necklace
This was the one accessory included in my Fix. It was a long gold layered necklace, which works really well with my existing wardrobe. I haven’t heard of the company and wasn’t able to find them online, but I really loved the way it worked with the BB Dakota dress included…
This was an item which I didn’t love initially when I picked it out of the box, but completely changed my attitude when I tried it on. This is also a reason why I love this service: I often do not try on items I do not think will be flattering (wide stripes, etc.) but find that that is not always the case once I give them a chance.
Item 5: Willow and Clay Adair Mixed Knit Polka Dot Sweater
This was the one item I ultimately would not have purchased. It was a simple pale blue knit sweater, with a polka dot pattern. I decided to try it because of the keep 5, get 25% discount which essentially made it free, so I said why not? Although I do think I could love other items from Willow and Clay.
Overall like I said earlier, I was more than satisfied with the picks sent to me & I can’t wait for my next Fix! If you’re interested in Stitch Fix, you can sign up to learn more or subscribe here.
Hope everyone is having a great week so far!
