Good afternoon! So some of you know that I recently decided to give “Stitch Fix” a try. I’ve already had so many questions about what it’s like so I thought I would write a blog post on it! Let’s get down to business.
How does it work?
First, you start by going to stitchfix.com. From there you will fill out a very detailed questionnaire that covers everything from sizes, colors you like/dislike, styles you might want to try, age, etc. After you fill out a questionnaire you can choose when you would like your package to arrive. Cool!
Sounds good, but how much is this going to cost me?
They charge a 20.00 “styling fee”. This is all you will have to pay to try the service, even if you want to send all of the clothes back. If you send everything back, you can say good bye to your 20.00 and move on with life. If you decide that you would like to purchase something, the 20.00 fee can be used towards the purchase and then you can send the rest back!
What if I love everything?
If you love everything you’re actually in luck. If you purchase all 5 items you will receive a 25% discount plus you can still deduct the 20.00 styling fee from your purchase.
I didn’t like anything! Now what?
They give you a prepaid envelope that you can send the things back in. No cost for you! You have three days to decide what you would like to keep and what you would like to send back.
What was in my box?
1. Teal tank top. $44.00
2. Airy Knit Sweater. $48.00
3. Striped Maxi Skirt. $48.00
4. Knit Dress $78.00
5. Infinity Gold Earrings $28.00
I thought this was really fun. I loved the element of surprise when my package showed up at my door and I had no clue what would be in it. It’s just like christmas! That’s almost worth the 20.00 in itself. I loved most of the items that were in my box and they surprisingly fit really well. I liked that the clothes just showed up on my doorstep and they were things that I wouldn’t necessarily pick out if I went shopping. The downside? I thought the price of the clothes was expensive. The quality is probably on par with tj maxx but they’re much more pricey. Since I hate trying to weed through clothes to find something I might like, paying the premium price doesn’t seem that bad to me. It also gets me away from wearing black spandex all of the time. Win! I won’t be doing this every month but will definitely be trying it again when I need some new clothes. Overall it’s definitely worth giving it a try. 🙂
