I first heard about Stitch Fix a while ago via one of my old neighbors who had signed up. She loved the service, and when they expanded their available style range I decided to sign up. (I definitely lean towards the more alternate/edgy side of fashion, and originally I felt they weren’t catering to that area of style.) I received my first Stitch Fix box in the mail last month (yes, I’m always belated with this stuff), and I wanted to share the experience with you!
To start, if you are not familiar with Stitch Fix—it is a subscription box service for curated fashion. You fill out a style profile, which is impressively extensive, and a stylist is assigned to you to hand-pick five items for your box. You can choose to receive a one-time box or have an automatic subscription repeat every two weeks, every month, or every other month. I currently have every month selected, personally, to see how it goes. They charge a $20 styling fee per box, which gets deducted from whatever you decide to purchase from your box. Whatever pieces you decide you don’t like, you send back in a provided shipping bag with a prepaid shipping label. So it’s kind of like having a personal stylist choose some items for you! I found it extremely helpful to provide a Pinterest board of my personal style preferences, as a reference for my stylist.
The box arrived and looks like this when you first open it up:
Inside was some paperwork and my five, hand-curated items. The paperwork included a card with all the items listed on it, a message from my stylist, and two styled looks per item. I received two tops, a pair of pants, a faux leather vest, and a dress.
