I realized that my summer was getting too crazy busy when I received a Stitch Fix package, and I hadn’t even sent a message to my stylist.
Sending a note to my stylist before receiving my package of goodies is part of why I love Stitch Fix. I get to be very specific about what I want to receive. I’m always very thoughtful about what pieces would really enhance my wardrobe, what my closet is missing or what special events I have coming up.
So when I found the box on my front porch and remembered that I had received an email reminding me to tell my stylist what I wanted, I was bummed.
But I was pleasantly surprised when I opened my Fix and it was full of beautiful summer pieces, and even contained a tank top from my Pinterest board.
When you join Stitch Fix, you fill out a style profile. This helps your stylist know how to pick the right size for you, but also whether you like skinny jeans or flow tops or boho style or glam style.
Sending a note to your stylist is the easiest way to receive exactly what you want, but creating a Pinterest board helps your stylist see what your style is and what you would like to receive.
I highly suggest following the Stitch Fix Pinterest board and pinning straight from their boards. These are pieces Stitch Fix may have in their warehouse and can actually send to you!
I received the Octavia Brooks Crossbody bag and the Renee C Leela Racerback Top – both of which I had pinned.
My stylist has also sent me pieces that were very similar to things that I had pinned.
Here’s what I received in my recent Fix…
Everly Isabella V-Neck Dress
I loved the style, colors and pattern of this dress. It was the perfect length and was very flattering. The only reason that I didn’t keep it was because it was too snug around the shoulders and arms.
Level 99 Edward Relaxed Trim Detail Straight Leg Pant
These were such beautiful pants. I don’t usually wear light colored pants because I have cellulite and I can see it through light pants. These pants looked good on me, but it makes me feel self-conscious to see bumps on my thighs.
THML Dejen Embroidered Top
I loved this top. It was super hippie/boho and would be cute with ripped boyfriend jeans. I didn’t love that the bottom half was sheer. I don’t know, I don’t love wearing undershirts.
Renee C Leela Racerback Top
I pinned this and received it! I’m obsessed with tie dye and I love the colors in this top. It’s perfect with shorts, but I’ll also wear it with cuffed jeans or my linen pants.
I also love the dainty straps and racerback. Love, love, love!
Market & Spruce Bruce Double Strap Blouse
I love the color of this top, but I wasn’t into the pattern or fit. It was too flowy and not flattering on me.
I was excited when I opened this Fix. Everything was beautiful and fun and in line with my style.
Even when I keep just one item, I still feel like my Fix is a success. I’m receiving something unique and high quality that I wouldn’t find locally. It’s also fun to try on pieces that someone else has picked for you. It’s helped me to try new things!
Have you tried Stitch Fix? Here are the details…
With Stitch Fix, you fill out an extensive style survey, then a stylist handpicks some pieces of clothing based on your preferences. You can receive a ‘fix’ every 2-3 weeks, every month, every other month or every three months. You can even schedule fixes randomly, which is what I’m doing right now.
I highly recommend creating a Pinterest board to give your stylist a better idea of what you’re looking for. Check out my Style board on Pinterest. Your stylist really looks at your Pinterest board too!
When you receive your box, you try everything on, send back the items you don’t want and purchase the items you want to keep. You pay a $20 styling fee for each box, but that $20 is applied to anything you want to keep from that shipment.
In your style survey you can set price points too! So you end up receiving items that are in your budget.
You also receive styling cards with your Fix. This is soooo helpful, especially for the fashion challenged. Me!
