Stitch Fix #2: January 2014
Many thanks to the person who signed up for Stitch Fix using my link! I used my referral credit to schedule a fix :)
|Stitch Fix #2|
Stitch Fix is a clothing service that, for a $20 styling fee, sends you a box of clothing items and sometimes accessories. You have 3 days to try everything on and return what you don't like. You pay for what you keep, and you get a 25% discount if you buy all the items. Your $20 styling fee is credit toward a purchase.
I filled out a profile with my sizes and style preferences and Stitch Fix did the rest.
|Sophia Skinny Jeans, $88|
|Not too long!|
|Bye bye, jeans :(|
This is the shirt that I ended up keeping!
|Galway 3/4 Sleeve Button-Up Blouse, $38|
|Not much definition to the shirt, but it drapes well|
|A little wrinkly from its travels|
|Strasbourg Split-Neck Knit Top, $48|
|I'm so pale that I throw off the contrast. Sorry!|
|Cellar Open Front Drape Cardigan, $48|
|Again, sorry for the color balance.|
|Selfridge Cowl Neck Long Sleeved Shirt, $48|
|It took me a full 5 minutes to put this shirt on. It was needlessly complicated.|
|Holy cowl neck.|
Cowl-Necked Shirt: Returned
The merchandise total came to $270 for this fix, but if I had bought everything, the 25% off and the $25 credit would have brought the total to $182.50. No thanks. I kept the blouse and sent everything else back.
I like the idea of Stitch Fix a LOT. I really do. I feel like this would be great for someone with a grown-up job who doesn't have time to shop, and has the money to afford an $88 pair of jeans. That's not me right now, sadly.
I would have loved to keep the jeans, but I'm glad that blouse I liked was the most inexpensive item in the box.
If you want to try out Stitch Fix, please use my referral link here. I'll get $25 credit, and you will get a custom box of clothing to spare you from going to the mall. Try it on in the privacy of your own home, see how it fits in with your current wardrobe, and send back what you don't like. It's that simple.
