So... awhile back while looking at some blogs I came across one that mentioned something called Stitch Fix - I was intrigued! The blogger talked about getting her 'Fix' and how excited she was and I had to learn more about it. So, I went to their website: https://www.stitchfix.com/ and requested an invite. I would say it took a couple of weeks and then I received an email saying I could get started and sign up for my first 'Fix'.
Once you've been 'accepted' into the program (and I use that term loosely - it's like a lot of the flash sale sights where you ask for an invite first) you go back to their website and create your style profile. In this profile you give your basics - height, weight, what sizes in clothing you normally wear. Then you get more specific: how you like your clothes to fit (loose/form fitting/tight) and what your style preferences are (classic/bohemian chic/glamorous/romantic/etc.). Then you say how much you'd prefer to spend on pieces of clothing/accessories and you can also classify what type of articles of clothes/jewelry/accessories you'd like included in your 'Fix'.
(I basically said 'all of it'!)
Then you sign up for your 'Fix'.... they give you dates on a calendar and you pick one and they say they'll send it to you the week of that fix. You also pay $20. Now the good thing is that $20 is a credit towards what you buy in that 'Fix'!!!! (I'm assuming some of that goes towards shipping too.)
SO - then you wait! And wait and try to be patient but then you email the company because you really want your 'Fix' and then of course that same day your box arrives. (oops!)
Anyhow - it was SO fun to open the box and see all the goodies inside! Here's what I received:
|Item #1: BB Dakota Kitty Sleeveless Cable Print Tank|
|It looks just like a cabled sweater but it's a gorgeous silky-like material!|
|Each article comes with a description and a couple different ideas for how to wear it - LOVE THIS!|
|and with that description - PICTURES! (this is exactly like having your own stylist come right to your house!!!)|
|Here's an extra peek at the cute stud detail and neckline|
|Another look at the outfit suggestions for this shirt - LOVE these!|
|this picture does it a little more justice|
|Item #4: Miilla Saxon Jacket - how rocker chick is this? TOTALLY not something I would ever pick to try on myself - seems way too 'tough and confident' for me but I really loved how it looked on!!|
|How cute do these outfits look?!|
So that was my 'Fix' this time around! The deal is that if you order everything from your 'Fix' you get a 25% discount - awesome! All together everything in my box was around $300 - that's probably a bit on the high side for me (especially at Christmas and considering it was all for me!) but with the $20 credit from ordering my 'Fix' in the first place and the 25% off everything - I could have gotten everything for $200! That's pretty amazing!
For me - I looked at these items in the following way:
#1. what would add to my closet/wardrobe the best
#2. what would I most likely wear the most
#3. what works best with my lifestyle (stay at home Mom who likes being stylish but let's face it - is home most of the time)
I ended up only purchasing/keeping one item from my 'Fix'. The price was great - with my $20 credit and then a referral credit of $25 that I'd gotten when a friend signed up I got the item for a crazy low price. I loved the funky jacket but it was a bit expensive and I wasn't sure how much I would be wearing it. The cable knit tank was also at the top of my list but I wasn't sure how much I'd really wear it either.... so I picked:
