My First Stitch Fix Experience

 

My First Stitch Fix Experience

Have you heard of Stitch Fix?  It’s an online personal shopping service that is extremely easy to use.  Over the summer I read several blog posts about Stitch Fix and was intrigued.  I love clothes and want to look fashionable for my job but hate taking time to go shopping.  Stitch Fix is perfect for someone like me who doesn’t like to take time to shop.  After filling out a style profile, a personal shopper selects five clothing or jewelry items that are sent to your home.  The box sent to you is called a “fix” and it comes with a prepaid envelope for returning what you don’t want.  There is a $20 styling fee that’s deducted from what you chose to purchase.

 

Your style profile includes your sizes and questions about your lifestyle, profession, and style.  You are shown groups of clothing to evaluate.  Your choices help your stylist determine what to ship to you.

Here are  a few examples from my style profile:

I liked everything in this group, so I selected “Love It.”

This group is not at all my style, so I selected “Don’t like it much at all” for my profile.

I “Like some” in this group.

You can schedule a monthly “fix” to arrive at your home or you can schedule a “fix” only when you want one.  My first “fix” arrived last week.  I knew it was coming and looked forward to opening my box when I got home from school.

My five item “fix” included a striped dress, three tops, and a necklace.  The necklace was too modern for me, I loved the dress but it was too short for school, and I liked two of the three tops.  I don’t have an unlimited budget for clothing, so I was good and only kept one top from this “fix”.

My First Stitch Fix Experience

I paired my new Stitch Fix top with a white denim skirt from Old Navy and a pair of silver and gold slides.  I wore this outfit to school the next day and got multiple compliments from both students and teachers.  The top is stretchy and quite comfortable.  I love the cowl neckline and will be able to wear this into fall by topping it with a jacket or blazer.

My First Stitch Fix Experience

 

I enjoyed my first “fix” so much that I signed up for a monthly installment.  If I decide that this is too often, I can change my mind at any time.

My First Stitch Fix Experience

This is not a sponsored post, I joined Stitch Fix on my own and paid for my clothing out of my own pocket.  Stich Fix does offer a $25 credit for anyone who encourages a friend to order and if you order by clicking through one of the links in this post, I would get that credit.  Credit or no credit, I loved my first “fix” and can’t wait until my next one arrives in early September.

  1. Hi Paula,
    I love the concept. I’m so glad you shared your experience! Are you able to choose a price point and are there certain brands they/you choose from. The top you chose is so pretty. I love the color!

    • Sweet Pea says:

      There isn’t a choice on brands but you do choose a price point for tops/bottoms/dresses. I like the color of the top, too. And I like that I can wear it as a layer year round.

  2. That was a good first fix! The color and style of that top really suit you! I didn’t have a great experience with them the first time (they only sent 5 big, flowy maternity-style tops) but the second time I got a really cute dress that I wore to Haven.

  3. How cute! You look great. 🙂

  4. What a neat idea. I do love that top. I had never heard of that. I’ve been working out and hitting the weights really hard lately to tone my arms so what I really noticed was your arms! I think I’ll take up tennis! lol

  5. I signed up thru a friend but haven’t placed my first order yet. Love your top!

  6. I got my first fix about two weeks ago and while there were some things I didn’t love, I did keep a skirt. It’s really fun!! Love that top on you.

  7. This sounds great for someone busy! Thanks for sharing your experience with them. This would be great for someone that is homebound too. Yes, that color blue looks great on you.
