My 1st Stitch Fix

Friends, I’ve fallen into a rut. The exact definition of a rut. A habit or pattern of behavior that has become dull and unproductive but is hard to change. Yup…that’s me with my wardrobe. I love shopping. I’m not the person that hates buying clothes for myself or can never find anything that looks decent. I have a style! It’s called…mom casual? I’m somewhere between yoga pants and a zip up hoodie and designer jeans, heels and trendy tops. I wear a pretty typical mom “uniform” of black leggings or skinny jeans, a long tank, a cardi and boots. I don’t like to wear sweats or  yoga pants when I leave the house, yet don’t have time to be a fashion icon either. I like to look put together, but be comfy enough to be chasing around my 4 little munchkins all day. The problem is, I gravitate towards buying the same things. All.the.time. And not only the same types of pieces, but always the same colors. Black, gray, black, charcoal gray, black, light gray, black, medium gray…sometimes a splash of pink if I’m feeling saucy. I don’t even know why…I like color! I really do!

See? BOOOORING!

I kept seeing ads for Stitch Fix pop up on my Facebook feed. So either Mark Zuckerberg is now a mindreader, or he sees my pictures and thinks I could use some help. Either way…I took it as a sign and went ahead and signed up! My first fix came today, and I couldn’t have been more excited!

I was hoping to like just 1 or 2 things from the box, but after trying everything on…I loved all 5! My stylist really did an amazing job in following exactly what I asked for. When I was trying to decide what to keep, I went through what I had already in my closet to see what I could put together for spring incorporating the new pieces.

Outfit 2 will probably be coming on vacation with me next month. Shirt was in my fix, shorts, clutch, necklace and wedges were already in my closet.

I can 100% see myself running errands or at the park in outfit #3. Dolman sleeve top from my fix, capri leggings, necklace, flip flops and cross body bag from my closet.

outfit 4 includes a pair of boyfriend cut jeans from my fix. Bag, shirt, necklace and shoes were already mine. I can see this as a fun casual date night outfit.

Overall, I am so happy with my fix, and I’m already looking forward to the next one! I am determined to get out of my “uniform” rut once and for all!

    How are these priced? I see some people getting things they love in the $30-40 range and others complaining that everything they get is so expensive.

      Tara, you choose your price points when you fill out your profile (for example, I think I choose tops in the $30-$50 range, and jeans in the $80-$100 range. I don’t remember exactly, but something along those lines). You are not obligated to keep anything, so if it’s too pricey, you can always send it back. My entire box with my $20 styling fee credit (you get that as a credit monthly if you keep something) and the 25% off from keeping all 5 items came to under $200.

    I signed up for StitchFix last month after being referred by a co-worker and bought 2 things out of my first box at about $50 a piece. I also requested no jewelry or accessories because I want clothes! My next box comes next week so I’m excited to see what I’ll get. It is a fun way to get new clothes. I will admit the prices are probably more than I would spend in a store, but it is good quality unique hand picked stuff so it is worth the additional cost. It is also helpful the styling fee is applied to what you buy, because that gives you incentive to buy something rather than throw $20 away. I wouldn’t typically spend $48 on a sweater, but I would pay $28.

      Kara, I agree! And it’s not the typical stuff I’d pick up in my regular stores that everyone else has as well. Worth it to me, and so fun!

    I have been debating this for months. Loved your review. I just went to sign up and they full until mid May. Bummer!

      Meg, I was on a wait too…I believe about 6 weeks. I signed up anyway and had been looking forward to it’s arrival since then. Did you sign up anyway?
