So, I tried a thing. And I’m not quite sure how I feel about it.
Some ladies at work are OBSESSED with Stitch Fix, and considering how much I hate shopping I figured I’d give it a try – especially now that I need maternity clothes. The tricky part is that while I want things to wear now, I also want things that I can still use after Little Bit arrives.
When you sign up for Stitch Fix, you fill out a style profile and you can also link them to a fashion Pinterest board, so your stylist can get a better idea of what you’re thinking and pull things they think match it.
So far, one thing I will say I’m pleased about is the quality of the clothes. Stitch Fix items are pricey (most pieces being around $50), but I’m willing to pay a bit more for the quality.
I’ve received two boxes so far, but I’m really conflicted with how I feel. I’m fairly picky when it comes to clothes. The things I have bought I probably would never have tried on if they hadn’t been mailed to me. I think if I can get my stylist more dialed in to my fashion taste, it would be worth sticking with it.
Out of each box, I’ve only kept one of the five items (if you buy all 5 you get a discount on the total box cost). The good thing is that you can give them feedback on their picks or let them know if you want them to include something different or special in your next box. You can also request a new stylist, which I’m considering for my third box. But I feel so bad about it, like I’m firing the poor girl! We’ll see if I actually go through with it.
If I’m going to stick with the subscription, the stylist picks will need to improve. I’ll keep you guys posted on if it improves.
Have you tried Stitch Fix? What are your thoughts? Love it or leave it – let me know!
