After hearing about Stitch Fix from a friend, I finally decided to give it a go. I’m not sure what took me so long. I mean, who doesn’t want a personal shopper?
In case you haven’t heard of Stitch Fix, it is an online personal shopping service. You fill out a style profile, give them your sizes, and select the budget range for your clothing items. You can even provide them with a link to a Pinterest board! (Here’s Mine)
Stitches can come as often as you like. I only get a box quarterly – when the seasons change.
Of course, I had some very particular requirements for my boxes. I wanted clothing in eco-friendly materials, and I didn’t want to have to search through a whole store to find them. I was able to specify the fabrics I like to wear on my Stitch Profile. You can see my first stitch here.
I am not known for being stylish. Far from it. Which is why Stitch Fix has become such a great service for me.
Not only does my stylist find pieces in the eco friendly materials I request, I get style cards with each piece that tells me how to wear them. Winning!
Believe it or not, Stitch Fix has saved me money. I don’t spend time in the mall or at the stores where I’m tempted to purchase more than my budget.
Plus, I’ve set my stitches to quarterly, so I’m only getting a few fresh pieces to update my wardrobe seasonally.
Since I’ve been receiving my stitches, I’ve become more stylish. I actually tape my stitch fashion cards up in my closet. I refer to them whenever I’m at a loss for “What to Wear???”
Finally, I love it because it is sooooo unbelievably convenient. I get the box at home where I can try on the clothes in the privacy of my bedroom. I can also see if the piece will mix and match with the clothing I already have in my wardrobe.
My stitches just keep getting better over time. I’ve found my stylist has really listened to the feedback I’ve provided and it has helped me update my wardrobe with pieces I will actually wear.
