I’ll admit it. I’m an annoying Stitch Fix customer. The problem is I really enjoy shopping, and I can usually find what I want at a great price. I also say that I want to try new trends, but I don’t want anything too casual or too outside my style wheel. It’s annoying, isn’t it?
I love Stitch Fix, because there are few things that are more fun than receiving a box of clothes and accessories that are hand-picked just for me. So, there are a couple of things to keep in mind to help ensure you are pleasantly surprised with each Stitch Fix.
- Update your Stitch Fix profile. Trends change about as much as my opinions change, so I review my profile every month when I’m scheduling my Stitch Fix to edit anything that has changed. Also, consider adding a picture to your profile so your stylist can better visualize your body type and style.
- Link to Your Pinterest page. Show your stylist looks you love by keeping a style Pinterest board and linking to it in your profile.
- Overshare. Stitch Fix stylists are most successful when you give them very specific details about your preferences, style challenges, upcoming events, etc. This is one instance where TMI is a good thing.
- Give Feedback. Whether you loved or hated what was sent to you, let your stylist know during the check-out process. And be specific about why!
- Leave a note for your stylist. Earlier this year, I received a great Stitch Fix, but it was essentially items I already had. So, for my most recent Stitch Fix, I was very specific about what I needed: pieces that are trendy and outside of my comfort zone, yet still fit within my more polished style aesthetic. Because let’s face it; as much as I may want to be Serena van der Woodsen, I’ll always be Blair Waldorf.
Here’s what I got in my Stitch Fix…
Alice Blue Toledo V-Neck Blouse
This was the first item I pulled out, and I immediately thought I was going to hate it and the entire box of clothing. But… the color is so fun, I have nothing like it and I can see myself wearing this to work or with jeans.
THML Arielle Embroidered Knit Tank
This is probably my favorite piece sent – I love the embroidered bib detailing contrasted with the navy stripes. THML is also quickly becoming one of my favorite Stitch Fix brands.
Le Lis Alante 3/4 Woven Back Knit Top
We’ve shared similar styles for less, but this shirt fits me so well and is the perfect tunic length. I love it.
Loveappella Leila Knit Dress
I was a little harsh in my review of this dress and told my stylist it was “matronly.” (I’m sorry, Mary!) But I have totally changed my mind after wearing it. This dress is definitely one that you can easily throw on when you don’t have the time or the brain capacity to put together an outfit. You can easily add almost any accessory you own and look pulled together. I will be wearing this A LOT.
41Hawthorn Astrid Tie Neck Blouse
Y’all know how basic I am, right? And so it should come as no surprise to you that this was an immediate favorite. I love the loose fit, and the tie-neck adds a little formality.
So, how’d my Stitch Fix stylist do?
I kept all five pieces and scored my 25% off discount (woohoo!). And while this may not seem trendy to most people, my stylist picked up what I was throwing down and totally nailed my “I-want-to-be-cool-but-I-am-just-not-that-cool” style. Now, I have five new trendier pieces to shake up my wardrobe a little.
