Stitch Fix #6: A Giveaway for those at home and Vegas!

 Stitch Fix


As this post goes live, I’m heading to Vegas.  That’s right it’s I Teach K, I Teach 1stand SDE’s TpTSellers Conference this week, and I’m headed out to hook up with some of my best blogging buddies and teachers from all over.

 Stitch Fix

 
So you can imagine that I was delighted to find out that my Stitch Fix would be arriving just days before my departure and just in time for Vegas!  Whew!  There’s one last thing I wouldn’t have to do before I leave.  I’m not that excited about shopping for myself in the first place, so when someone else will do it for me, it’s always a plus.
 

 Stitch Fix

 Let me just briefly tell you how Stitch Fix works!  

How It Works:  Stitch Fix is a personal shopping/stylist service.  All you do is fill out a personal style profile and answer a few questions, and then for $20.00 a stylist picks out 5 items of clothing for you to try in the comfort of your own home.  Your stylist takes your personal styling preferences, size and even special events into consideration when planning your fix.  And if you have a hard time ‘seeing’ how pieces should be worn, they even send you a style guide to show you different ways to wear your ‘fix’ with items that you may already have in your closet.    After you try on the items they suggest, if you decide to keep them, you just go to their site and check out.  They apply your original $20 to the balance of your ‘fix’ plus you will earn 25% off you bill if you choose to keep your entire fix.

If you decide not to keep some of the items, just put them in the prepaid shipping bag that is included in your box, slip into to the nearest mailbox with the flag up and you’re items are on their way.   Next, go to your account and check out by indicating which items you are going to keep and which you are returning.  It’s really important to tell them what you did and did not like about your fix so they can learn more about you and your style each time.  It’s really so much fun to see what my stylist picks out each time my box arrives.  I can’t tell you what a wonderful little treat it is.

I love how my stylist takes into consideration the other fix items I have kept and also what might work for my trip to Vegas!!!  They really pay attention, so make sure you tell them about those important events that are coming up on your calendar.
 
So let’s take a look at my fix this time!  First up was this gorgeous Chevron Print Maxi Skirt.  This isn’t the first maxi dress that Stitch Fix has sent me but the first one was so incredibly long and too big that I sent it back.  That was my first fix though, and I was crossing my fingers for this one.
 
 
I am so happy to report that the fit this time was absolutely PERFECT!!!  The length was right on and the size around the waist fit great.  I love that this skirt has the folded over top so that if you need to adjust the length you can, but you can see that this one fit very well.

 Next in my fix was a pair of Kensie Skinny Jeans.  Again, Stitch Fix tried sending me a pair of skinny jeans in the past, but the color was pink (I hate pink) and the length was about 6-8 inches too long.  I was hoping that this time I would have better luck.

 
Before I even tried this pair on, I had a good feeling that it might be a better fit from the description on the pocket label . . . ‘Ankle Biter.’  Yep!  That pretty much sums up my height.  This might turn out ok after all.
 
And the verdict . . . a perfect fit.  I LOVE these jeans.  First of all, they called me ‘skinny!’  What’s not to love about a pair of jeans you can actually get on that’s called ‘skinny?’  I can’t tell you how much I love these jeans.  It just goes to show you that ‘fixes’ get better and better each time as your preferences, sizes and styles become more familiar to your stylist.

The next item I tried on didn’t have a stylist card which was kind of unusual.  But it didn’t really matter, I knew as soon as I saw it in the box that I was going to LOVE this Heather Drape Cardigan.  It was perfect, except in the arms which were a bit tight.  So I requested Stitch Fix to send me a new one in a bigger size.  I can’t wait for it to arrive because the color and style will be perfect for me.

My stylist also sent me this Sheer Cinched Waist Blouse.  It was really lovely sheer material with a dress tank underneath.  She suggested I try it on with a gold skirt or faded jeans, but I had neither.  So I just paired it up with a black striped shirt that I had.

Unfortunately, I just didn’t feel like the fit was very flattering for me.  It was a bit big in the waist and just kind of hung there on me.

Lastly, I found a very Kelly green, Micah Ruffled Sleeveless Blouse.  It was suggested I try this on with a striped skirt.  I try, if at all possible, to try items on with items that my stylist suggests so I grabbed my skirt and tried to have an open mind.

While it wasn’t horrible by any means, I just couldn’t stand the ruffles at my neck.  Even with it unbuttoned at the neck, the ruffles were bothersome to me.

So all in all, a successful ‘fix.’  I kept the glorious skinny jeans, the amazingly cute maxi skirt, I am hoping to exchange the heather cardigan, and I’m returning the two blouses.
