My Stitch Fix Review: April 2013
This past week I received another great package from STITCH FIX. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the company (or haven’t heard me rave about it), it is a service where they send you 5 items (clothing and accessories) and you can try-on everything at home for a $20 Styling Fee. They give you a big USPS bag so you keep what you like and you send the rest back. If you decide to keep something, then your $20 styling fee goes towards your purchase. And wah la, it’s as simple as that.
I first heard out about Stitch Fix back in November so I’ve been using their service for quite some time now. In fact, this was fix #6 for me! I hardly ever go shopping and I don’t think I have a good sense of style so this is pretty much the service of my dreams.
Here’s how it works:
1) You sign up and fill out an extensive 80 question survey about your style, preferences, and pricing. For some people this is too much. For me it just means that the stylist can know more about me and send me items that I’m more likely to keep. I see it as a benefit. I want the stylist to get to know me and send me things they think I will like or look cute in!
2) Schedule a fix. You can set your fixes to auto ship monthly or you can pick the date yourself. I like to pick the date myself.
3) Get your fix. Try on your clothes.
I have to admit I had pretty high standards since I ended up loving EVERYTHING in my fixes #4 and #5 and kept it all. It seems like Stitch Fix has gotten to know what I like over time which is pretty cool. For my April fix I asked to get some cute clothing for spring. Here is what I got:
The top on the left with the buttons is a LOST top that’s black and white and has a cute tie on the bottom. The shirt above it is another cute tee. I kept them both.
The shirt to the right (very red) was a little too baggy and conservative looking for me so I chose not to keep it. I also received a maxi shirt (the blue design in the back) and a silver bangle. I didn’t keep either of those items and I sent them back.
Here I am pictured above dropping off my stuff in the mail. Easy.
I scheduled my next fix to come next month. I am in desperate need of new clothes and this is a fun way for me to try on new clothes and have the convenience of doing it at home instead of driving to the mall in my free time. Some people like the mall. For me, it’s a chore. I’m a fan!

P.S. I am not getting endorsed by Stitch Fix in any way for this post. I have received a lot of interest on Twitter about people wanting to learn more about this awesome service so I decided to post a review on it. If you do decide to sign up, I will receive a referral credit when you receive your first fix. This makes my next Stitch Fix Shipment more affordable – and as you can see, I have quite an addiction to this service. Help me help you!
