Stitch Fix is another subscription fashion box. I know, I know- didn’t I go down this path before? Yes, I did. But I decided to try again (with a different company). The reasons I chose Stitch Fix:
- It’s woman-owned (wahoo!)
- The styling fee is only $20 per box, and if you keep anything in the box it applies to the purchase of that item.
- You can choose the frequency of boxes (I’m currently at 3 weeks).
- They have a very lively blog with fashion inspiration and style advice, for all body shapes and style preferences.
- They send 5 items per box, including accessories (if you want) and shoes (if you want).
- They also send a style card with 2-3 suggestions of how to wear/pair every single item they send.
- They have an awesome referral program- if you’re interested, click here to get your first Stitch Fix for free.
Stitch Fix focuses on pieces, not outfits, and I’m all about a versatile closet. I’m also all about learning how to style my existing items (as well as new ones).
(please forgive the crap quality of my iPhone video. I will attempt a horizontal approach next time)
So I ended up keeping the long cardigan (my $20 styling fee went toward this, plus an extra $20, including tax). Everything else was returned, with specific feedback to my stylist about why.
I also updated my Stitch Fix Style Pinterest board. I expected the first box might be really hit or miss. We’ll see if the second box is more spot-on!
Do you have any style goals right now? Have you tried a fashion subscription box? And just how DO you style a t-shirt to be work appropriate??
