I love shopping, but going out to the malls and stores kind of make me anxious, especially when my boys are with me. It’s impossible to find anything without them complaining of boredom, or I have to chase after them at the store. So, I never go to the mall or go shopping for clothes. Once in a blue moon, I’ll be able to go to the mall and look around alone, but it’s very rare!
Enter Stitch Fix, a clothing subscription box! I resisted a bit because I wasn’t so sure if a stranger could really find clothes for me. But, I had heard it has been a timesaver amongst my friends, so I decided to give Stitch Fix a try.
First you sign up for an account and answer some questions about your size measurements and your style. They also ask you how much you’re willing to spend on clothes. You decide when you want your box to be delivered and give them a credit card. From there, a styling fee of $20 is deducted and can be applied to your purchase once you get the box.
Stitch Fix lets you know when the box is scheduled to arrive so you know when to expect it. When you do get the box, it’s pretty exciting! It feels like Christmas! Who doesn’t love getting packages, right? It’s pretty fun and exciting to open and see what kind of outfits are in the box.
In order to get the best results, it’s a good idea to create a Pinterest board of all the types of clothing you like to wear, so the stylist has an idea of your style and taste. The first couple of times, I didn’t have one to give to the stylist and the result of that wasn’t too good. I ended up buying one thing just so I didn’t lose my $20 styling fee/credit.
This box is my 5th one and probably the box where I liked everything, but I didn’t end up buying everything because of different reasons.
Here are the clothes that were in this Stitch Fix box:
I actually ended up buying this romper because I loved the print and rompers are so comfortable! And, there were pockets!
Price of romper: $44 | Sandals from Naturalizer
This blue dress fit well and I liked how it hid my mama pooch, but I didn’t think it was worth the price. The shoes were also in this Fix, and although I loved them, they were a tad too big.
Dress: $48 | Shoes: $49
This blouse was really cute! It also hides the mama pooch too, but I like longer blouses, so I didn’t get this one. The shorts fit great and I ended up buying them.
Blouse: $48 | Shorts: $48
Overall, the clothes cost $92 minus the $20 styling fee, which came out to $72.
In my honest opinion, the clothes can be somewhat pricey. I probably could get a lot more clothing for $92, but on the other hand, I am starting to buy more clothes that are of quality. I think the prices make sense, when it all comes down to it because someone is taking the time to pick these out for you. So it’s part of the service. Would I do this often? Probably once every couple months. I know there are better values out there if I just keep my eye out on my favorite stores and their sales. And using Ebates when you order clothes online is a must for the cash back!
