What in the world is Stitch Fix? Have you heard of it? I had never heard of it, until I saw a few friends post about it on Facebook! Nothing like social media to keep me up-to-date on the latest trends!
I jumped on the Stitch Fix bandwagon, and am loving it. It’s really fun! You sign up to have a personal shopper shop for you! Wow! I only thought celebrities could have this luxury, but not now!
To start, you create a very detailed profile of all your favorites styles and trends. You even pick if you want casual, dressy or work clothes. Best part? You get to set your own budget so you can spend as much or as little you want to on your fix.
You even get to pick how often you want your “fix.” I chose to get mine every 3 months. I wanted to be sure I liked it first. However, now, I am thinking I want to change it to monthly. You also get to send a note to your own personal shopper. For example, if you have an event coming up and you want to see more dressy clothes in your next fix, just send a note and your shopper will find something just for you!
Now, I know you are probably thinking–what is the catch? Well, there is one… kind of. There is a $20 styling fee, however, you receive a $20 credit toward your fix that arrives. So whatever you choose out of the 5 items they send you the $20 goes toward that purchase. Yes, if you don’t like what they send you on your fix then you could be out the $20. Other than that, every time they send you something you only pay for what you keep. Also if you end up liking all 5 items they send you, you get a 25% discount on the total order. The best part is that they send you a pre-paid label and shipping bag to return all the items you didn’t like. I hate going and standing in line to get postage and packing and now you don’t have to! Brilliant!
I don’t know about you, but I feel the older I get, and the more kiddos I have, I really don’t like trying on clothes. I still LOVE to shop, don’t get me wrong, but I will buy what I think will fit, try it on at home, then take back what didn’t work.
With Stitch Fix, that is basically the exact same thing. I have received two fixes and I have kept three items! They know I am pregnant now, and send me sweet notes about being pregnant. They also have been really good about sending me “growing” clothes.
When you send back what you don’t like you have the opportunity to tell them what you didn’t like and what you would like to see. I didn’t like the first style of maternity pants they sent and told them I actually like the full-panel maternity pants. The next pair they sent were perfect! I ended up keeping them!
If you have ever thought about trying Stitch Fix or a similar service, I HIGHLY recommend it! Do something nice for yourself this year and give yourself the gift of a new wardrobe!!
Happy shopping mommas!
