If you haven't heard of Stitchfix* and have been looking for a little help in the wardrobe department, consider your prayers answered. Seriously. My lady friend, and new blogger, Allison (http://lifeastheyoungestseniorcitizen.blogspot.com/) mentioned getting a fix in the mail and loving it. A fix? Ummm.. I was curious as to what that was exactly. Fortunately, I knew it A) wasn't going to get me into any legal trouble and B) would be kickass because Allison knows about EVERYTHING cool.
So what is it? Stitchfix is an online company that allows you to create a style profile and then have clothes shipped out to you based on your wants and needs. An individual stylist reviews your preferences and selects five items they believe will suit your figure and tastes. If you choose to purchase all five items, you get a rather generous discount of 25% off. There's a stylist fee, but it's not too much considering they're picking out some pretty lovely items for you to choose from.
My first fix! Isn't it fancy and fun?!
They even provide a little styling guide on the different ways you could mix the fix up.
How does it work? Once you've tried on the items, you have three days to decide and return. Stitchfix provides a prepaid shipping bag, so you simply throw the unwanted items in the bag and drop off for the mail carrier.
Anyway, I'm on my second fix and have a beautiful dress AND a sweet pair of jeans (yes, I actually kept jeans that I received in the mail that I didn't pick out myself) to show for it. Keep in mind that you might not LOVE everything you receive the first couple times because the world is full of shapes and sizes and it takes a bit to really get it perfect. However, I have to say that they've done a great job with the information I provided and even manage to find items I really love but might never have considered before. It's convenient, fun, and a great way to change up your style with a little help.
Tips for success:
1. Be honest about weight and height.
2. Provide the most detail you can in the character count allotted.
3. Link up to your Pinterest style board if you have one so stylists can review what you're into.
4. Give it a shot or two. Who doesn't love receiving pretty mail?!
