My second Stitch Fix came today and I have say, waiting for FedEx was like waiting for Santa Claus to come on Christmas morning when I was 5 years old! And, I have purposely waited to write this post because I wanted to make sure I had two deliveries for comparison.
How it works:
When you first sign up with Stitch Fix you fill out a pretty long questionnaire about what you like, don’t like, your body type, colors you like on yourself, do you wear patterns, are you open to anything or are you reserved. They even show you pictures of grouping of clothes with accessories letting you choose what grouping you like. Price is also discussed; you fill out what is the price you normally pay for jeans, a shirt, shoes, or a sweater. Additionally, there is also space to write the stylist a note. In my case I wrote her that I was turning 50 in a year and that I found myself struggling with my evolving style. I even linked the blog post “Can I pull this off” so she could see what I was talking about.
This is the note that came in my box this afternoon.
I am delighted to put your Fix together for you today. I took a look at your blog that you had linked; it was fun to read through and hear about your journey! I saw you recently purchased a flannel-I almost sent one very similar to what you picked out until I saw you already had it. For todays’ pieces, I sent you some Level 99 skinny jeans-these are a wardrobe stable for all seasons. They will look great with either top and the BC Footwear booties or your leopard flats. I saw you mentioned a zip up hoodie to dress up or down. I wasn’t able to find one with a zipper, but this Olive & Oak cardigan is perfect for dressing up or down. Wear it over either of the tops and the jeans. Let me know what you think and what you would like to see in your Fix. if it is available I will certainly send it.
I admit it, after I read this…SOLD! Not only do I love what was sent to me, I especially LOVE that she took the time to read the blog post I linked and went a step further to read the “flannel and leopard” post as well and referenced the flats I bought to wear with the jeans she was sending me. It was an extremely nice touch.
When your Fix is shipped you get an email letting you know it’s on the way with a tracking number. Here is what the box looked like and how it was packaged.
Okay, okay…here is what was in my first Fix: Cost to keep it all $178.00.
What I love the most about Stitch Fix is that I would have probably only bought the blue and white stripped sweater and the necklace if I was out shopping for myself, but I have worn everything in this fix at least once in the last month and love the way all of it looks on me. The other thing I love it that these pieces are versatile, even the red jeans and can be paired with staples I already have in my closet.
Oh, which brings me to the card! I almost forgot…when you get the Fix you also get a card! When the box comes there is a card inside that shows you each piece paired with other items for a dressed up or dressed down look. This is extremely helpful and allows you to take the guesswork out of pairing.
Here is the card that came with this fix: (sorry the pic quality sucks…I’m desperate for a real camera!)
On to my second Fix: Cost to keep it all $278.50.
So there you have it.
