My Take on Stitch Fix

Well, if you haven't already tried it, I'm sure most of you have heard about the newest craze - Stitch Fix!  I have been curious for quite awhile, and even though I know what happened to the cat, I still had to try it for myself.  I was quite skeptical, and surely didn’t want to throw $20 down the tubes (stylist fee that goes toward any purchase you keep).  Those of you who have heard me speak know how particular I am about color, fit and style.  Okay, and a bit of a control freak who likes to shop!  I’m also a bargain shopper at heart, and didn’t want to break the bank when I’m accustomed to my TJ prices! 

So, Stitch Fix is not the first shopping service I’ve tried, but I have to say it is the best!  I have been so pleasantly surprised!  The colors have been spot on, the fit has been shockingly good and they seem to have hit my style pretty dog gone close.  For me, this is not a substitute for shopping (less I shoot my business in the foot!) but a great way to mix up your closet if you’re stuck in a rut, or to help find some quality investment pieces you wouldn't normally find locally.  However, if you hate to shop, and don’t have the time, I can honestly see how this could be a great fit every month.  I recently received my third shipment, and each time it gets better.  It’s so refreshing to have a service with no gimmicks, automatic shipments or charges. So, here’s what I’ve learned..

-          The more specific you are, the better
-          The cheapest price points are $30-50 for tops
-          Lots of blousy/silky long tops, which probably helps them fit the masses.  Make sure the fit is perfect and the length is flattering people! Bigger and baggier is definitely not always better!
-          I’m still trying to figure out how they’re making money

-          Don’t settle and regret, just send it back.  There’s always next time!

The pic above is most of the items I've kept from my shipments to date.  You'll be seeing these, plus
