It’s been a few months since my last Stitch Fix post and that’s mostly due to my own procrastination and a little to do with all of the holidays and stuff too.
What is Stitch Fix, anyway? Stitch Fix is like having a personal shopper that delivers right to your door. First, you sign up on their website by filling out a ‘style profile’ telling your personal stylist everything they need to know about you. Your sizes, styles you like, what types of things you’d like to avoid, etc. Then, once a month, or however often you decide you want them to, they ship you a package with five hand selected goodies, just for you.
As of this post, I have received 11 personalized ‘fixes’ and I have to say, each time I’m even more excited to see what they’ve picked out for me. One of the things that I love about it is that they send me things I might not normally pick out for myself and those are sometimes the things I end up liking the most!
It’s hard to decide what part is the most fun of getting a new Stitch Fix package, but one of them is these little cards that give you ideas on how to wear the pieces that they’ve sent you. The cards above are the ones from each piece that I’ve kept so far!
Lately, as in the past three months, I’ve had a more difficult time deciding on what to keep than usual. In October, I kept every piece and then in November, I was really torn between the top and the pants in the picture here:
The top is the Beringer Lace Black Keyhole Knit Top by RD Style and the pants are the Emer Printed Cropped Straight Leg Pant by Margaret M.
And I know, they look awesome together too. But I kept the top because even though the pants looked great, they were a little on the pricey end and I actually kept a similar pair in a red and black houndstooth pattern in September.
Okay, I’m going to be completely honest with you now. My December fix was probably the most disappointing one that I ever received. Almost nothing fit and I didn’t even feel up to taking pictures but I didn’t let it discourage me for too long. I did keep the Kut from The Kloth Jonathan Skinny Corduroy and I’m very glad that I did.
The navy blue color is so rich and the corduroy is so soft looking. They’re really a great pair of pants for cold weather that I can mix and match with a lot of different tops and look just a little bit dressier than in a pair of jeans.
And finally, we come to January. There were three things that I really, really wanted to keep from my January fix. But, since I just got a lot of awesome clothes as Christmas gifts, I decided that I would keep only one piece.
I’m trying not to regret not keeping these jeans. I know I did the right thing because I love this top so much. But the jeans are the Angie Skinny Jean by Mavi. And yes, it was really hard to send them back. The top is the Galey Embroidery Crochet Detail Knit Top by Skies are Blue.
Let me tell you, I was very unsure about this top before I tried it on. It’s definitely not something that I would have picked out for myself but once I put it on, I was in love. The cobalt blue is absolutely gorgeous and the material drapes so flatteringly. It also has a cute little opening in the back, which my hair mostly covers so it’s not too cold!
So, there you have my latest Stitch Fix keeps! I can’t wait to see what’s in my February fix and to share it all with you again!
If you love getting new clothes but have no time to shop, or just love the idea of getting personal-stylist-selected clothes and accessories sent right to your door; you need to sign up! All you have to do is answer a few questions about your sizing and style preferences to create your own style profile. Then you arrange for your fixes to be delivered whenever and however often you’d like. For a $20 styling fee, you will be matched with a personal stylist who will review your fashion preferences and hand-select 5 items just for you. The clothes are shipped direct to your door for free so you can try them on in your own home, at your own convenience. Then you simply keep the items you love, check out online, and return the items you don’t love in the pre-paid shipping envelope that is included in your package.
The best part is that you automatically have a $20 credit (from your styling fee) when you decide to keep any of your pieces and if you choose to keep every item in your fix, you automatically save 25% on your entire purchase! I choose to get my fixes once a month but you can also receive one every 2-3 weeks, every other month or every 3 months. And you can change or reschedule at any time too.
If you’re not already a Stitch Fix customer, I would really appreciate it if you would consider signing up with my referral link because I receive a small credit towards my future fixes whenever someone chooses to sign up using my link.
