My birthday was a couple of days ago. I ordered this fix strategically (planning for my off week of course) but also hoping for something to wear to my party this weekend. Every year we throw a big shindig at the house, mainly to try to see some of my friends that I don't see as often since kids, life, etc. happened!
For those of you who have never heard of Stitch Fix or want to know more about it, here's a quick run down:
Stitch Fix is a service that will send you five articles
of clothing (or purses,scarves, or jewelry) picked by a stylist at whatever interval you choose
based on a style profile you fill out about yourself. You pay a $20
styling fee for each box, but that money goes toward anything you keep.
So as long as at least one item works for you, there's nothing to lose.
And if you keep all five items, you get a 25% discount.
You don't have to sign up for a certain time period between fixes. You
could try it one time and never get another fix or get another one 2
years later! There's no cost commitment until you schedule a fix. When the box ships, that's when you are charged the $20 styling fee.
You can create a Pinterest board dedicated to your style and put the
link in your style profile so that your stylist can see what items you
like and why. I love when I receive something I actually pinned or
something very similar to a pin on my board!
I signed up for Stitch Fix last March, and this is my 11th box. I had a fill-in stylist last month, but since I kept everything, I
wanted her back if Ashley wasn't available. I was kind of hoping I
wouldn't love everything this month though because a monthly fix can be
expensive when you keep five items so often! Here is my note to my stylist:
I would like Ashley (or Anne, if Ashley is unavailable) to style me please! This fix will be my birthday fix! I would love to try some shoes (I think you have some now). I'd also love some colorful tops (like the blue Barret cold shoulder).
Here is what came in my 11th box:
(1) Pixley Stacey Scallop Hem Cut-Out Detail Skirt $64
It was hard to find something to match this skirt. Anne (my stylist) said I should tuck a shirt in to show off the red waistband, but I am lacking in shirts that match blue and red. I found an off white tank and also tried it with item #4 from this fix.
(2) Skies are Blue Talar Split Neck Top $54
Fix #7 and my Liverpool pants from Fix #10. After trying the shirt on again, I am reminded that it is SO soft and comfortable! My husband said I look like I should be on Saved by the Bell though. Maybe it comes in another color?
(3) 41Hawthorn McQue Solid Lace Sleeve Blouse $48
(4) RD Style Blair Cold Shoulder Pullover Sweater $88
Fix #7 in October, and I have pinned every top with this style that I can find.
(5) Kensie Rebekah Stretch Crepe Blazer $88
Fix #5. I think I may have to keep trying for the perfect blazer. I tried a t-shirt and dress with it as well, but it just didn't look right to me.
I'll have to take the next few days to think it over and decide what to
keep. I get three days to decide what to keep and what to send
back. I fill out a checkout survey to give specific feedback on each
item so that my next fix can be even better. Then I put the rejects in a
prepaid envelope and drop it off at the post office.
