I recently learned about a new online site called Stitch Fix from my friend during my recent D.C. visit. Immediately, I was intrigued and gave it a try.
Stitch Fix is a personalized shopping service – all of which can be done from the comfort of your own keyboard. How’s how it works:
1. Request an account here – they are still in their Beta phase, so please be patient. They will reach out to you when they are ready for you.
2. After you receive your log in, fill out your style survey – indicating what style you are currently rocking, what style you really want to capture but don’t know how to pull off, your pricing comfort zone for various articles of clothing and prefered color schemes.
3. Schedule your fix (i.e. monthly, 4 times a year, etc)
4. Receive your fix in the mail (Stitch Fix clients enjoy free shipping both ways as a benefit of membership!)
5. Be giddy as you open it and try on all the lovely designer brand clothing.
6. Decide what you want to keep and what you want to return.
7. Place any “I didn’t love it” items in the pre-paid USPS envelope and drop it off at the nearest mailbox.
8. Continue to build your style profile by providing feedback about the items online.
9. Wear your newest fashions around town and rave about your new personal styling service.
10. Repeat as often as possible.
The cost of this service in $20 dollars per fix; however, that fee is applied as a credit toward the purchase of anything in your Fix. So if you buy at least once thing over $20, you are essentially getting the styling service for free.
I am happy to report that I received my first fix last week and it was awesome. I tore open the package and tried on everything at once. While I only kept one of the five items I received, I was impressed with their selections. The stylist definitely got it right and if I had been more accurate with my sizing information, I probably would have kept a lot more! The top that I decided to keep was something I would NEVER buy myself, but something that I absolutely loved. I can’t wait to wear it. I honestly feel like I had Rachel Zoe right here in my apartment with me- only without the attitude and judgement at the fact that I am not a size 00 like her post-baby self.
So jump on the Stitch Fix bandwagon. I promise you – you won’t regret it.
