For about a year or so now, I've toyed with the idea of trying Stitch Fix. I've seen other people talk about their own experience with Stitch Fix, but I hesitated. I am not one to commit to subscription boxes. They usually seem too pricey for me. Also, I hate having to go mail a return package. But then, someone sent me a $25 credit and since I really need some wardrobe help, I decided to give it a try! You can get $25 to spend at Stitch Fix, too and I will get another $25 if you sign up by clicking my link!
Since the pandemic with all of its lock-downs started, I have gone to the mall exactly ONCE! I purchased a few things, spent too much and I still needed a few more things! My shoes are all looking bad, my shirts always get holes in the stomach area for some mysterious reason and I need more pants! So, when I received the $25 to spend at Stitch Fix, I investigated further and here are the answers that I found to my concerns:
When my box came, I was surprised at how small the box was. Upon opening it, I was amazed that 5 pieces of clothing were in it, plus a note from my stylist, (Danny), and cards showing me ways to style the clothing. I loved that feature. Plus, there was the return envelope and the list of prices. I must say, I got pretty excited when I saw what was in the box, it all looked really cute and the fabrics were nice, Nothing seemed cheap or poorly made. Here is what I received:
3 shirts, all super cute!
1 pair of jeans, I loved them, they were soft and comfy, but unfortunately too big on me! (That was actually nice in a way! I'm hoping to try them in a smaller size.)
1 dress, I liked the print, but not the hemline.
I'm not showing you the dress, but here are the jeans and shirts. It was really nice to be able to try everything on in the comfort of my own bedroom rather than a now almost non-existent department store dressing room. You can click on the photos to find out which pieces I kept.
After the $25 discount, the 2 tops I purchased came to $41, or around $20 per shirt. In today's market, that is pretty good for a good quality top!
My husband, who was photographing me, asked me if it wouldn't be easier to just go to the store and shop and buy the clothes by myself. I gave him an emphatic "NO!" Here were my reasons:
I want to give a shout-out to my stylist Danny who really listened to me when I filled out my info about what I like and don't like. You have the option of getting a different stylist if they really miss the mark, but I kept mine!
If you would like to get $25 and give Stitch Fix a try for yourself, just click one of the many links I've shared in this post. You'll be doing me a favor, too!
