This Talkative Tuesday is all about my personal Stitch Fix Review!
If you don’t know what Stitchfix is or want to know more about it let me sum it up for you.
It is AMAZING for people who:
1) Don’t have time to shop (me)
2) When they do shop they pick out things that aren’t ‘quality’ and wind up never wearing or they fall apart (me)
3) For people who love clothes and want to INVEST in them (me)
Now, what exactly does Stitchfix do for you?
You start off by signing up for the service for $20 a every two weeks, every month, or every other month. Whatever you feel works best for you and your budget. You have your own personal stylist that picks out clothes they feel work best for you based off of their extensive style profile quiz you take. Which really goes into wonderful details.
Here’s a few screenshots of mine to give you an idea.
After you’ve filled out your style profile the next step is patiently or if you’re like me IMPATIENTLY wait for your first ‘fix’ to arrive. It arrives in a super cute box with personal “hello note” and style cards that give you a little snippet of advice on different ways you can wear each item. You have three days to decide which five items you want to keep and send back the ones you don’t want in their prepaid shipping bag. Which is through USPS, so it makes it that much easier for you to ship back.
Now, for the skeptics out there (like I was at first) you’re probably thinking $20 on top of already buying these clothes IF I like them enough to buy them? No! NOPE! THIS is the best thing – ANYTHING you buy even it’s it’s just one item, they apply the $20 styling fee to that item! Is that not amazing?! That was the deciding factor for me. Plus if for some reason every item is just absolutely amazing and you can’t bare to box them up and send them back, guess what?! YOU GET 25% OFF YOUR ENTIRE PURCHASE! You just can’t beat that. Now, if you choose to buy nothing, the only thing you’re charged is the $20 styling fee. That’s it.
Below are the fixes I had my sweet husband take photos of that I received this past week (this is my second ‘fix’ because I never had time to document the first).
I really, really loved this and WANTED to keep it, but I just couldn’t. I already have a coat so similar that it just wouldn’t of made any sense.
Brand: Olive and Oak
The shirt on the left I wanted to love, but it just didn’t fit the way I wanted it to, but that’s ok! I LOVED the one on the right!
Brand: Market and Spruce
Price: $88 (YES, I paid $88 for this shirt and technically with $20 OFF it was only $68…. It’s well made and the company plants a tree for every shirt purchased…yeah. Don’t judge.)
Brand: Amour Vert
Oh, how much I LOVED this scarf. Seriously. I am still in love, but I told myself that as much as I loved it, I just have too many I already barely wear…
And the fifth item are the jeans I have on in each photo. I HAVE NEVER OWNED A PAIR OF JEANS SO NICE that fit me PERFECT. I mean, PERFECT.
Brand: Kensie Jeans
Grand Total Spent on the jeans and shirt: $176 – $20 = $156
NOW BEFORE you say “YOU SPENT EIGHTY-EIGHT DOLLARS ON JEANS AND A SHIRT WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU”…let me just state that I am at the point in my life that I am SO tired of my clothes falling apart and not lasting long. I am starting to INVEST in my clothes and I highly recommend you do the same. They’re GOOD quality and are going to last you longer and I believe, SAVE you money in the long run. Plus, in your style profile you get to choose what price you’re willing to pay.
Now, if you’re at the very bottom of this and you’re thinking “I TOTALLY WANT TO SIGN UP THIS IS AWESOME” you should TOTALLY click this link: I WANT MY STITCHFIX and I receive credit for sending you and that what be even more awesome!
Also, one LAST thing… if you’re curious about trying it, I told myself I would do two boxes at least and if I didn’t like it, I would cancel. You can cancel at any time, but you won’t want to, I promise!
