Stitch Fix {Getting Started}

Eeek! I am so excited & thankful I got gift cards to Stitch Fix for Christmas!!
Stitch Fix

As you can imagine, having 4 kids in the last 5 years has left no time to focus on me. I am not complaining because I honestly don't like shopping for myself. I am not good at it. I have no fashion sense and have a difficult time seeing an item and imagining how to pair it, layer it, etc for a complete look.

What better solution for a busy mom with no time and bad fashion than an online personal stylist who mails you clothes to try on at home?!

I have several friends who use Stitch Fix and I asked them if they thought it was worth it. They all said yes!

What is Stitch Fix?

Stitch Fix is the first fashion retailer to blend expert styling, proprietary technology and unique product to deliver a shopping experience that is truly personalized for you. Simply fill out the Stitch Fix Style Profile and personal stylists will handpick a selection of five clothing items and accessories unique to your taste, budget and lifestyle. You can buy what you like and return the rest!

How does it work?

  1. 1. Fill out your Style Profile

    Begin by filling out the Style Profile. This helps understand your size, style, shape, budget and lifestyle. Completing your profile should only take about 10 minutes.
  2. 2. Pick the date you’d like to receive your shipment

    A selection of five clothing items and accessories handpicked by personal stylists will be sent on the date you choose. At the time your stylist selects your items, you will be charged a $20 styling fee. That $20 will be applied as a credit toward anything you keep from your shipment.
  3. 3. Try everything on in the comfort of your home

    Try on everything your personal stylists have picked for you because you just never know what will look great on! Create new outfits by pairing what’s in your shipment with the items that are already in your closet.
  4. 4. Buy what you like and return the rest

    a. Take three days to decide what you’ll purchase and what you’d like to send back. You’re only charged for these items when you tell us what you’re keeping and returning.
    b. Check out by logging in to your account to pay for those items you want to keep. The $20 styling fee will be applied as credit towards any items you purchase. If you buy all five items, you get 25% off the entire purchase!
    c. Simply return the items you don't want in our prepaid mailing bag and drop it at any USPS mailbox. Stitch Fix clients enjoy free shipping both ways as a benefit of using our service!
  5. 5. Tell them what you think!

    Don't forget to give specific feedback on each of the items you receive. Personal stylists are able to send you better selections when they know what did and didn’t work for you, and why. 
    If you choose to receive regularly scheduled shipments, they will automatically schedule the delivery date for your next shipment. You can always choose an alternative date that better suits your needs or opt out of regularly scheduled shipments entirely.
    Stitch Fix does not require a membership fee or a monthly subscription.

How much does it cost?

Our average price point is $55 per item, but they carry a wide variety of price points. When you fill out the Style Profile, you tell them how much you are comfortable paying. They do our best to pick items that reflect those preferences. If you choose to buy all 5 pieces, you get a 25% discount off of your entire purchase!

Last night I sat down and filled out my personal profile. The more specific you are about what you do and don't like the better your fix will be! I also started a Pinterest board of clothing items I like and linked that to my file for a more accurate personal style. My first box is scheduled to arrive in January and I can't wait!
