Unless you have been living under a rock there have been a plethora of services that have hit the blogosphere to make ones life uber convenient.
From eyeglasses to food – I am dubbing 2016 “The Year of Convenience”.
It was only a matter of time before I jumped on the bandwagon with what I hope to be a monthly fix of fashion.
Yup – I have joined Stitchfix, the monthly subscription service where after filling out a pretty detailed style profile, your stylist will hand select 5 clothing and accessory items that will arrive on your doorstep each month.
The cost for this service is a $20 “styling fee” which is applied to your order if (and probably when) you decide which item(s) will have a “fix”ure in your closet. If you decide all the items are “must haves” then you receive an additional 25% off your total purchase.
So since I am trying to jazz up my wardrobe with some new items and I hate to go shopping, I thought this would be a win-win. I figured I would give it a try and worse comes to worse I could cancel my subscription, as you can cancel at any time.
With bated breath – I filled out my styling profile, linked my Pinterest Account (to give my stylist an idea of clothes and accessories I would more inclined to wear, and waited until the end of December for Christmas to arrive (again) at my doorstep.
I was very excited (can’t you tell) to see what Stephanie had chosen for me. I loved how the package can neatly wrapped along with a note welcoming me to the Stitchfix family, a note from my stylist as to why she chose certain items and for me who is a total noob when it comes to styling – personalized style cards that I could use to “complete my look”.
I should have taken a picture of all of the individual pieces (don’t worry I will fully document my Fix next month. However of the five pieces that were selected for me – I decided to keep the Just Black Dolce Bootcut Jean, the Jolli Knit top and the Charter Pre-Layered Necklace (which is hard to see from this picture.
Both items were very soft, well made and I loved how they both fit and felt on me.
I am a bit “hippy” so it has been not so easy to find pants that not only fit but look flattering – the Just Black Dolce pants checked off both of those boxes for me. Who knows how long it would have taken me to find just such a pair of jeans traipsing around the mall.
All in all I am super happy I decided to try Stitch Fix out – I can see why so many find this addicting and can’t wait for my next Fix next month. Until then I will be actively going on my Pinterest Fashion Board so Stephanie can make some awesome choices for me in February
