Stitchfix is an online personal shopping experience. You go to the website, enter information about yourself such as your height and weight. You answer questions about your clothing style and what your likes and dislikes are. You can be very specific too and tell them you don't like to show your arms or that you like to wear stripes, etc. They even ask you for an amount you'd like to spend.
When I started my own profile, I told my "stylist" that I love wearing jeans, but I can't wear them to work. I said I wanted to look polished but also wanted to be comfortable since I work in a school and spend a lot of time in the school yard and cafeteria. I also chose the "As little as possible" option for how much I'd like to spend. They take your credit card information and keep it on file.
Now, the fun part. Stitchfix sends you a pretty little box with 5 items in it.
Inside were three tops, one pair of pants, and one necklace. You take a look at everything, keep what you like and Stitchfix charges your account. Whatever you don't want to keep, you send back, free of charge, in an envelope they have supplied for you. So easy. You just have to make sure you do this within 3 days, otherwise everything will get charged to your account.
If you keep all 5 items, you get a 25% discount on your box.
Ann and Mary totally indulged me and were my photographers for my photo shoot. Want to see my new clothes?
Item #1 Renee C Lyzbeth Crew Neck Top ($48)
Item #3 41 Hawthorn Abrianna Longsleeve Knit Cardigan. ($48)
Item #4 41 Hawthorn Montgomery Cross Front Knit Top ($48)
And there you have it. I'm keeping everything. A splurge for sure, but in adding everything up and then subtracting the 25% off for keeping all five items, and less the $20 styling fee (you need to pay that if you send back everything. But it will be taken off of what you do keep), my grand total for five items is $167.
It has been such a fun experience. The only thing more fun was my photo shoot with the girls.
And that's a wrap.
