I know that everyone on the internets now has their own opinions about Stitch Fix. The personal shopping site has made many, many fans but not without some slips along the way. As someone who likes to shop – even trying this service seemed weird to me. But I tried it so that maybe I’d step outside my comfort zone a bit and maybe get introduced to some new brands that fit well.
My first Stitch Fix was a fail. Every single piece. None of it matched my style profile.
But after I returned everything, they contacted me and offered a Free Fix to try it one more time. They made mention of the mistakes they made and said that they had a better idea of what I wanted.
So last month another Fix arrived. And I was impressed. I mentioned that I like more fitted pieces and casual – as I do not dress-up much nor do I like blouses. Period.
They sent five pieces – a pair of skinny black jeggings, a blue sweater, a black pleather jacket, a purple tee, and a necklace.
The necklace I didn’t even try on as I really don’t do any jewelry but earrings. Jewelry has never been my thing.
The purple tee was cute – but nothing that I thought I would wear. So that was going back.
But I fell in love with the black jeggings and black jacket. You could dress them both up or down. They were totally my style!
I also liked the blue sweater – but at $88 – I didn’t think I would really wear it enough to make it worth it – so while it fit my style and I liked it – I didn’t need to spend that. But the price of the jeans and jacket were so reasonable and I know I will wear them both A LOT!
So even though I kept only 2 of the 5 pieces in my Fix – I still consider it a huge win as they totally got my style right.
Right enough that I’ll be Fixing to Stitch Fix again.
Also, I like my butt in these jeans.
