Stitch Fix | You GOTTA try this!

Have you heard of Stitch Fix?  I've seen it around the blogosphere and also in Facebook ads and I decided to give it a go.  

Here's the gist.  You create an account at Stitch Fix and you fill in your "style profile," which includes specifics like height, weight, bra size, typical sizes you wear in various types of clothing, types of styles/fits you prefer, etc.  Based on this information, a stylist selects 5 items for you and ships them to you.  You try them on in the privacy of your own home (and you can pair them with items you already own).  Then you decide what you want to keep and what you don't.  If you keep all 5 items, you get 25% off the entire total.  If you decide to send back everything, you're only out the $20 styling fee; if you keep even one item, that $20 styling fee is deducted from the cost of the item(s) you keep.  Sending stuff back is super easy because they send you bag with prepaid postage, so all you do is pack it in and drop it at the post office.

I received my first "Fix" a couple of weeks ago, and I have to say, I loved this entire process.  As Max has gotten older, it's gotten increasingly more difficult to go shopping for clothes with him.  I typically purchase things I like, try them on at home, and then return whatever I don't like to the store.  Or I shop online and do the same thing.  The reason I like Stitch Fix so much more is because someone else chooses the clothes for me, so I get to try on things I might not normally choose for myself.  It's also so incredibly easy to return stuff.  You can request regular Fixes on a monthly basis or go onto the site whenever you want to receive a new Fix.  You can also specify what types of items you'd like to have in your Fix: perhaps you need cocktail dresses for a wedding, date night options, or casual, everyday items, etc.  And, BONUS: they offer maternity and petite options!  Seriously, why wouldn't you try it out?

Here are the items I received in my Fix.  I think my favorite part was this style card insert, which offers suggestions for different outfit combinations for each piece.

1.  Market & Spruce Spencer Striped Jersey Dress: $54

Totally my style.  So comfy and cute.  I kept this and wore it last weekend.  Love.

2.  41 Hawthorn Moni Geo Print & Camisole Blouse: $58

A coordinating camisole came with this blouse.
3.  Mystree Skylar Asymmetrical Knit Zip Up Jacket: $78

I was very intrigued by this.  But it was so different that I was afraid I wouldn't wear it.
4.  Papermoon Samara Printed Maxi Skirt: $58

Not crazy about the shape and fit of this skirt.

5.  Papermoom Descanso Beaded Neckline Blouse: $48

I already have a few blouses similar to this, so I passed on this one.

After I tried everything on, I went onto my Stitch Fix account and provided feedback on each item for my stylist.  I have to say, she nailed my style quite well.  I told her that I'd like to steer clear of blue next time since that's always the color I gravitate toward when I shop for myself.  All in all, I LOVED this experience and I'm looking forward to the next Fix!

Also, just so you know, Stitch Fix has no idea I'm writing this post.  I just wanted to spread the wealth since I'm sure lots of other gals out there would love to try this, even just once.  Just click here to get started!  I hope you love it!


  1. soo cute!! i love the jacket :) and dress! so fun

    1. Thanks! The dress was my favorite. I actually have a black dress in a similar silhouette from Old Navy that I'm obsessed with, so naturally I had to keep this one. I'm the girl that finds a top or dress that I love and then buy it in a bajillion different colors haha!


Please leave a comment! I would love to hear from you!
