For so long I have been looking into subscription boxes and considering them however with so many out there now I couldn’t decide.Since I hate going to the mall and shopping, I decided a clothing subscription would be best. After researching various boxes I signed up for stitch fix.
I received my first fix in April and set up on demand fixes meaning I could schedule a fix whenever I want. I was very excited to receive my box and I had spent a good amount of time on Pinterest pinning outfits and writing notes on my Stitch Fix account as to ensure I got exactly what I wanted. Of course there is never a guarantee and there is always a risk of getting pieces you don’t like. The day came finally when my box arrived and I have to say I was very happy with the packaging. It was packed compactly with a little notecard detailing the outfits and ways to wear them. I am a sucker for great packaging. If something does not come wrapped nicely, it already off sets the mood.Stitch Fix also gives you a bag with postage for you to return the clothes so you just place what you don’t like in there and drop it off (super easy and convenient, loves!)
In my fix for April I received two tops, one dress, one pair of pants, and a cardigan. I ended up keeping the cardigan and pants. The pants were black and appropriate for work and since I did not have any I had kept them. They also fit amazingly, just like a glove.
I felt my stylist really listened to me and tried her best to style me in pieces that I needed and was craving (since this was my first fix). I didn’t schedule another fix only because my hubby and I have a small apartment and there isn’t much room for an expansive wardrobe and honestly I do not want a huge amount of clothes. I like Stitch Fix for myself when I need a couple items and I just cannot find them or if I want to try a new trend but don’t know exactly how to go about it because I feel stylist push you outside of your comfort zone. I was not a fan of the cardigan when I pulled it out of the box but I tried it on and fell in love with it.
I recommend for those considering it to just try it once. If you don’t like it you can always cancel. The styling fee is $20 and then once you get your fix the price of any clothes you keep. The $20 styling fee is cut from the total amount of clothes you purchase and if you keep them all, you get a bigger discount.
