I am SO excited about this month’s Stitch Fix. It was my best yet!!
I am sure most of you have seen my previous Stitch Fix posts. If not, Stitch Fix is a service that sends you five items of clothing per month based on a style profile you fill out. This is based not only on style, but also on budget — you can choose if you want to go cheaper or pricier.
The service costs $20 a month – - that is the fee for getting styled and having the clothes shipped to you. Once the clothes arrive, you try them on. If you decide to keep any, that $20 fee is deducted from the cost. If you send any back, it’s so easy. There is a postage paid envelope included, so you don’t even have to make a trip to the post office!!
Overall, I have been happy with my fixes – - rule of thumb is, they get better over time as your stylist gets feedback from previous fixes and gets to know your style a bit better. But even though I’ve been happy, I’ve definitely felt like they could be better and that the clothing style was sometimes a bit “off”.
It turns out, there are things I can do besides just filling out my profile and leaving feedback that help ensure I get what I really want!!
A few things I changed this month — I created a Stitch Fix Pinterest Board. This is a board where I pinned clothing I liked and would like to see similar items in my fix. There is a spot in my profile to link my Pinterest to, and I don’t know WHY creating a separate style board never occurred to me!!
Another thing — make good use of that comment section in your profile!! I used this section to link to my Noonday Collection website. I wear Noonday jewelry almost daily, and I need clothes that compliment the style. I left a comment about that to my stylist as well.
Have an event coming up? A color you love? A celebrity you’d love to emulate?
Let your stylist know in those comments!!
I was anxious to see if the changes to my profile made a difference, and I am thrilled to say that it did!!
Here’s what I got this month:
I love maxi skirts, and this striped one is very similar to one I pinned on my Stitch Fix board. I love it!! It’s super comfortable and will carry into Fall.
(The tank top is actually an old maternity Gap Body tank top. Yes, I still wear them)
Necklace: Noonday collection
This was absolutely not my favorite picture, and the sweater definitively looks better in person!! It’s a bit oversized and SO SO soft and cozy…I can imagine dressing this up with boots and skinnies, or even throwing it on over black yoga pants to run errands.
Again — this is very similar to a sweater I pinned on my Stitch Fix board!!
Necklace: Noonday Collection
This embellished top has GORGEOUS detail!! It has tons of gorgeous beading, and came with a little bag of extra beads in case I lose any. I love that it is a little loose around the belly area, and could easily pair with a cardigan in the Fall.
Earrings: Noonday Collection
I LOVE this crocheted top. Again — it is nearly identical to an item I pinned to my Stitch Fix board!! It even came with a cami to go underneath (and they weren’t attached — I HATE undershirts that are attached!!)
The jeans were also in my fix This was the first time I got pants and I loved them. They fit great and were SO SO comfortable. Easily one of my favorite pairs of pants I own!!
Necklace: Noonday Collection
This fix was a bit pricier than some of my others — $255 to keep everything. For the amount of quality clothing I got, I felt that this was reasonable. However — in the interest of full disclosure, Stitch Fix does pay for referrals (everyone gets a referral link when they sign on, whether you are a blogger or not) so I don’t end up paying for the whole box myself. If I did, I’d probably send a few items back, not because I didn’t love them but because $250 is a lot to spend on clothes every month.
If you’re interested in signing up, you can do that here. It’s really a lot of fun and I am looking forward to my next box!!
