So in case you didn’t know already, I LOVE to SHOP! I recently shared of my complete LOVE AFFAIR with Stitch Fix…I couldn’t keep it in anymore.
So here I am on Fix #9 and I just keep falling further and further down the rabbit hole. I’m actually thinking of ways to budget our grocery bill so that I can keep getting my monthly fix….it’s just that serious.
Before I reveal what I received this month, here are a few things about Stitch Fix and how it all works in case you haven’t had the pleasure of getting a fix yet:
1. You get started by filling out your style profile – you will answer all sorts of questions on sizing, pricing, preferences, colors, etc. Be as specific as possible…I can’t stress this enough. Make sure to link your fashion board on Pinterest so your stylist can see what you like!
2. Order your first fix. Your credit card will be charged a $20 styling fee but, if you keep any item (one or more) you will be credited back the $20. You will receive 5 items (this will be clothing, jewelry, handbags, or shoes). I let my stylist know with each individual fix.
3. Go through your fix. Decide what you want to keep and what you want to send back (they provide a postage free envelope). You have 3 business days to make up your mind (I usually decide in like 5 mins.). And get this, if you keep all 5 items you receive 25% off your entire fix! SCORE!
I enjoy receiving monthly fixes. You can choose to get one once every 2-3 weeks, every month, every other month, every 3 months or on demand…completely your choice so you don’t have to feel obligated!
Stitch Fix Reveal #9
Pixely Jenner Embroidered Halter Blouse ($58)
Halter necklines are my favorite because they make my shoulders look smaller than they probably are in real life. This one is cute because it has a nice fun detail around the neck. I totally kept this top because it’s cute with jeans, shorts, a skirt….
Dear John Finnegan Cuffed Short ($58)
First off, yellow is my all time favorite color! Living in Miami, shorts are a MUST have since it’s hot here all year round. I don’t normally pay this much for shorts, but these are thicker material and I can make them casual or wear them with wedges for a dressier look. Not to mention they look good on my big ol’ booty. I kept them.
Street Level Meyer Tassel Clutch ($38)
THML Ericka Embroidered Dress ($88)
This is my new favorite go-to dress for all occasions! It’s a linen material so it’s nice and light. The fun embroidered pattern goes really well with my favorite Steve Madden shoes (not from a Fix). This is a perfect item to have when I’m tired of wearing shorts and it’s too darn hot for jeans!
London Times Bobby Jersey Dress ($98)
Ok, so I’ll be honest. I wasn’t completely sold on this dress when I first took it out of my Fix. It’s just not something that I normally would wear. Then I remembered that was the main reason I started getting Stitch Fix…to get me out of my fashion box (total pun intended!). So I tried it on and was pleasantly surprised that I loved it instantly! The flared sleeves didn’t make my arms appear bigger and the stretchy jersey material gave in all the right places. I can’t wait to wear this one (and doesn’t it look great with the Street Level Clutch?).
So let’s be real.
The prices seem a bit scary for each individual piece, right? That’s why I don’t look at the prices when I try them on. I want to make a real decision without being swayed by the price tag. The best part is, if I kept all 5 items in this Fix, I got $85 off plus my styling fee credit of $20. So for all the items, I paid $235. I would spend that much if I walked into the Gap and got some jeans, a t-shirt and a pair of shorts. So to me, it’s worth it because I got items that I wouldn’t normally pick out.
Keep in mind, when I filled out my Stitch Fix profile, I chose the second price point of $50-$100 for my clothes. There is also the option for “The cheaper, the better” and you can also range your prices from $200+. You choose.
