Confession: I’m not a stylish person. Don’t get me wrong, I like looking stylish, but I’m not the best at being stylish. The picture above is a great example of what I thought was cute growing up. I’ve grown out of that phase, but still hate shopping for new clothes because I have a hard time finding something cute, stylish and that looks good for me. I think clothes shopping is stressful and I would just rather not do it.
Enter Stitch Fix. One of the bloggers I follow, Lindsey Nobles, posted about this site in October. Stitch Fix is an affordable personal styling service where someone handpicks five items in each “fix” to fit the person and their style. Each fix costs $20 which can be used towards the purchase of any items in your box. The items are delivered to your door the day you request and you get to try everything on at home with your own closet.
I signed up for Stitch Fix in the fall and loved almost everything in the box. Unfortunately, the fit was just a smidge off so I only kept one shirt. It remains one of my favorite wardrobe pieces! Stitch Fix makes returns easy- in each box is a stamped return envelope. Any item I choose not to keep goes back in that envelope and right back in the mail.
Another thing Stitch Fix makes very easy is deciding how to wear the items. Each piece comes with a card describing the item and two visual examples of how you can wear it. This makes pairing each item with things I already own a breeze.
I got my second Fix in the mail today. Before requesting this fix I added a link to my Pinterest Style Board to show my stylist things I liked. Today’s fix was fantastic! Everything fit perfectly, the styles were great, and it was terribly tempting to keep the whole fix In the end I decided to keep two things from the fix- a blue cardigan (in the picture below) and a green top.
If you want to find more stylish clothes without the hassle of shopping you should try Stitch Fix. If you use this link when you register, I’ll get a bit of a credit when you order your first fix. Don’t worry I would absolutely recommend it without the referrer credit!
