It’s a typical Monday morning and I have a ton of errands to run. A part of me wants to grab my typical yoga pants and t-shirt and head out with my hair in a hat. Then I think, why do I always look like a slob? I want to be one of those ladies I see who seem to look put together even if they are just running to the dry cleaners. I head into my closet and I immediately deflate…it is so boring. I’m tired of everything that I have, not to mention some of the things in my closet are from *gulp* years ago!
Then I remembered that I have an “ace” in my back pocket. My Stitch Fix personal stylist can help to revamp my wardrobe from drab to fab! (sorry so corny)
I quickly jotted down some notes to her explaining that I’m tired of my plain old t-shirts and I wanted some tops that can be casual and dressy and make me seem like I have myself together. I made sure that my Pinterest board gave a visual explanation to the solution I was looking for and then I crossed my fingers and waited for my Fix to arrive.
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 #10
This month, my regular stylist Kristy wasn’t available, so I had Katherine. She listened to my needs of wanting more tops that can work with shorts, jeans or for a more dressy look. You can also tell that she studied my Pinterest board because styles were represented in the Fix.
Skies are Blue Wasson Cutout Detail Top ($54)
This top is so light and airy…perfect for the Miami heat! I’ve paired it with cut off jean shorts for a more casual look, but it would work well with a nice pair of skinny jeans and sandals. Something about this top reminds me of the pictures I’ve seen of Greece. (Ya know, because I’ve never been there…) I kept this top because it was exactly what I was looking for.
Alice Blue Balfe Embroidered Top ($54)
Another score! This top is so cute and works well with the Street Level Meyer Tassel Clutch from last month’s Fix. Here I have it paired with a black cotton skirt, but shorts would also be really cute with this. This is a great top for work or play! Another keeper.
Skies Are Blue Enrico Crochet Front Detail Knit Top ($54)
This top is a little thicker in material but is a perfect way to break out of my boring t-shirt habit. The crocheted detail on the neck is so feminine I love it. Keeper!
Plenty by Tracy Reese Pege Keyhole Halter Top ($118)
Kathrine added this one to my Fix because she knows that I love a nice halter neckline. This silky material is so flowy and is perfect for Miami both day and night. Unfortunately, I couldn’t see myself spending that much on a top like this. I sent it back.
Yumi Kim Kandace Silk Romper ($228)
Ok, so this was my favorite in the entire Fix! This romper was one I pinned from Stitch Fix’s Pinterest board and they delivered! I’ve heard before that sometimes they send you the exact item you’ve dreamed about, but never experienced it until now. This sexy little number has a low cut front and 3/4 length sleeves. It’s a great outfit for flip flops or heels! Unfortunately, I wasn’t expecting the price tag, so I sent it back. I have to have will power sometimes.
I’ve told you before that I don’t look at the prices when I try on the items. 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 25% off plus my styling fee credit of $20. In this particular Fix, I only saved the Styling Fee because I didn’t keep all 5 items. I still find that 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.
