These days, why spend an afternoon lugging around shopping bags? Why not have great stuff delivered to your door?
Stitch Fix is a personal shopping service that picks five different items and sends them to your home so that you can try them on and see how they fit with your existing wardrobe. When you register, you take a fairly extensive quiz to help define your style and the types of items you’d like to receive. You’re just billed for the things you keep- there is a $20 charge for each shipment, but if you keep any of the items, that $20 is credited towards your purchase.
Since it’s a new company that’s still beta testing, I spent a couple of months on the waiting list before being notified that my first shipment was on its way.
I was giddy with excitement when I unwrapped the package. It had a top, a dress, a pair of pants, a blazer, and earrings. They all fit and were within the price range I’d requested, but most of them went back because they were either unflattering or just not great enough to keep. One really nice touch is that they provide a couple of styling suggestions for each piece: a God-send for someone like me.
I hoped to fall in love with just one piece in the shipment, and the blazer was it. It’s exactly the kind of piece my closet was lacking. I loved the double lapel, giving it some interest even though it’s a neutral color. Even the price was perfect! I wore it twice this past weekend- to the movies with my girlfriends and to dinner with my man. I know I’ll get a lot of use out of it as the nights get cooler.
As you can see, everything was reasonably priced and I was pleased with the quality. If you buy everything, you get 25% off! It was probably the best shopping experience I’ve ever had, and I have even higher hopes for my next shipment since they’ll take my feedback from shipment #1 into consideration.
