For those of you out there that are still developing your style or you’re already rocking it, Stitch Fix is an amazing resource for finding those perfect pieces to either complete an outfit or completely style one for you. Tonight I wanted to revisit my first Stitch Fix, which I’ve blogged about at Sliding Into Second Grade.I was so excited when I received my very first fix! I had heard so much about my friends’ fixes and even across the teacher blogs I found that these stylists really capture a sense of your own style and lead you into a more fashionable direction.
When you initially sign up you complete a style survey and that informs your stylist of the basics that make up your everyday wardrobe from the things you like and things you don’t, what fabrics or patterns you prefer, sizing and your budget. What I love about this service is that you can link your Pinterest board to your account, which gives your stylist an even broader and more specific look at what your personal style is or what you’re needing. With that being said, my stylist hit right on the money with her first fix for me!
Let’s take a look at what I got…
41Hawthorne Herringbone Vest: KEPT
Splendid Striped Knitted Top: RETURNED
Pop Over Blouse: RETURNED
Kinsie Skinny Jeans: KEPT
Kut From The Kloth Denim Jacket: KEPT
One of the most popular fall vests this season is the J.Crew inspired herringbone vest. I’ve seen this vest, and its many variations, all over the place and it’s perfect for fall. The vest itself is light, but warm enough when paired overtop a sweater or with a scarf. In the picture above I styled the vest with the Splendid striped knitted top, the Kensie skinny jeans, my own Tory Burch flats, and my J.Crew Outlet statement necklace – but I’ve quickly found this vest practically goes with everything! It’s always fun to see how many different ways you can use a few items from your closet and work them into many different looks. The herringbone vest is definitely a staple item since you can pair it in a number of different ways.
Stitch Fix is a service that has exposed me to a lot of great brands and styles that I may have otherwise looked over or not have bought for myself. You’re probably asking yourself if it’s worth the money? So, let’s take a look at the finances of it all:
With the $20 styling fee and the fact that you pay for what you keep, it makes for a good investment if you simply don’t have the time to go shopping yourself, you’re looking for new pieces, or you’re wanting to change up your wardrobe. Along with five handpicked items by a professional stylist, a prepaid shipping label and envelope is packed in your box for the items you don’t want to keep. All you do is drop it off at the post office within three days of receiving your shipment. Oh, you also get 25% off your entire order if you decide to keep all your fixes! Keep in mind that it isn’t necessarily probable that you’ll end up keeping all the items in your fixes every time but it’s great if you do and Stitch Fix reward you for it!
what’s new? the stitch fix app!
Now, you can download their Stitch Fix app and have all of this convenience right at your fingertips. With the app you’re able to update your profile, send a note to your stylist, track your shipment, and even take a peek inside your fix to see what you will be expecting. Checking out is a breeze with the app since their interface is so user-friendly, which has been a huge plus for me.
