Mac had a conference in Atlanta this week, so I got to come, too! Metropolitan areas are not good for me. They provide lots of temptations to shop because I live in such a small town that usually when I go out of town I have my kids with me which means shopping is not fun. So, I shopped. Because it's so fun!
What struck me as I walked through Marshall's and TJ Maxx was that trying to find clothes there is no fun. The racks are packed so tight that it's hard to even see what's available. I was reminded of Stitch Fix and that I have a new box coming in the mail soon! A box that was chosen for me...that I didn't have to search racks for. Perhaps for that box I'll give a more step-by-step of the process.
But this is from last month. I was remiss...I waited to put this out. Better late than never.
If you are reading this and wondering what in the world Stitch Fix is...scroll to the bottom. I outline the basics there. I'll also include links to my other reviews, if you should be so interested.
Hi, Faith (aside: Faith is my stylist)...here's the review for the box that you sent.
1. MoVINT Rebecca Printed Aline Skirt
Love, love, love this skirt. Perfect for winter weather. I wore it to church and actually had someone say I looked like I just got back from a college class. HA! I'll take it. I look a little silly with my headphones on, I know, but my husband and I produce a podcast and have for almost 10 years!
2. OCTAVIA Sutro Open Knit Infinity Scarf
I peeked at my box online...and looked up some pictures of this scarf. Not a fan of the photos. But once it came...LOVED IT. The color is great, it's super soft and fun to wear. Now, I just waiting for the weather in Georgia to get low enough to wear it. It's almost 80 in my hometown today.
3. JUST BLACK Dean Skinny Jean
Ok...these jeans are a little tight...just a little. I think I'm between sizes and no way am I going up. But it's nice to have some black jeans. Haven't had any in a while.
4. RENEE C. Alondra Ruched Pencil Skirt
Oh my gosh. This is the greatest skirt. It looks fancy, but feels like something you could wear to do yard work. Completely comfortably. It's how all nice clothes feel. This picture doesn't do justice to it at all. It's a deeper blue, but I guess up against the blue shirt I had on, it appears more purple.
5. BRIXON IVY Baya Lace Inset Pullover sweater
Verdict--KEPT to sell
Didn't love it. Not very comfortable, and just doesn't really look good on me. But for the discount I kept it. It would have cost more to send it back. Hasn't sold yet, but hoping it will.
Overall a great fix. Again, my closet is filling up with blues, but I like blue. For my next fix I plan to ask for more color and no bottoms. My winter tops could use a boost. Thanks, Faith!
Stitch Fix is a personal styling service. Head over to the website and create a style profile. There is a questionnaire asking about elements of style that you like or don't like. You can link to a Pinterest board of styles you are interested in (which I highly recommend). You can even leave personal notes for your stylist. For instance, I included some of my favorite colors and my measurements. Once you get all that info in, you go onto a list and your "FIX" is scheduled. There is a $20 styling fee which will be applied to anything you purchase. You will receive 5 items in each box and you can keep all or none. If you keep all five items, you get a 25% discount on everything. Shipping is free both ways. Boxes are scheduled to your desire, as often as you like. From other reviews that I have read and the couple of interactions I have had with them, the customer service is pretty great. If you have a problem with your stylist, need a different size or notice damage to clothing, they are good about rectifying those issues.
If you, the reader, decide to try out the service, this link does allow me to get a $25 credit. Which is nice for me, I admit. Just in case you were wondering, the prices in this fix ranged from $34-$78.
