Stitch Fix Review

So here’s how Stitch Fix works: It’s an online “styling” shopping service. You fill out a form about your size, body type, and personal style preferences, and pay a $20 non-refundable styling fee. Then, someone out there who knows what they’re doing with clothes and fashion and such (obviously not someone like me), takes your input and picks out 5 pieces (ranging from tops to jeans to skirts to accessories and beyond!) that they think you might really like. They package it nicely in a box and send it your way.

This is when the old me would have been all panicked, thinking omg! There is no way anything in this box is going to fit, and I’m going to be totally humiliated (in front of myself?), and have to send it all back!

Instead, I squealed over the careful packaging and tissue paper, jumped around my little box, and carefully handled each pretty item as if it were a precious delicacy as I removed them all, one by one. My eyes reveled in the colors and patterns, and my fingers wouldn’t let go of the soft cotton.

Stitch Fix had sent me 4 shirts and 1 necklace. Two of the shirts didn’t fit quite right. And yes– it was because they were too small. But guess what? I loved the other two shirts– which fit perfectly. And I loved the necklace! So I kept the three things I loved, popped the two offending shirts (ok, they were actually quite darling) into a pre-labeled bag for shipping, and stuck them in the mailbox never to be seen again.

It was an awesome shopping experience. Everything I kept was really great quality and fit well. And, if I’m being totally honest, it’s SO fun to have something that didn’t come from the Old Navy or Target clearance racks. I mean, nothing against Old Navy and Target. They’re both long-time loves of mine. But there’s something about buying something a little nicer for yourself that feels really good. And then allowing yourself to feel like you deserve it.

As far as pricing goes, each of my items ranged from $28-$38. When you fill out the survey at the start, they ask you about price range. I selected, “the cheaper the better” for all of my items. The $20 styling feel can be applied towards any item, so you really only lose it if you send everything back (since I don’t think they’ll ever send you anything less than $20). My total bill ended up being around $80. For 3 quality pieces, I feel okay about that! I may not end up spending $80 every month, but I’m thinking one item a month could fit into the budget.

Annnnnnnnd, speaking of all that: they have a SWEET referral program! You get $25 for every friend who orders using your referral ID! That’s like a free shirt! It’s a great way to make using Stitch Fix more budget friendly. A friend of mine even said that she got her last box totally free! Just from referrals!

So… uh… use my referral ID if you decide to order a Fix, would ya? Just use this link: Thanks ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Hi! I have not commented on your blog before but I am so happy for you! I am glad that you are mentally feeling pretty again. Keep shopping! And jewelry always works for me. It always fits!!

  2. I am so happy you’re working on mentality and trying to be happy AS A PERSON, not as a “skinny” person. You’re working on your mindset and that’s fantastic and much more important in the long run. Since you’ve made that decision for yourself, you have looked younger and happier in pictures. (Also super cute clothes and super cute haircut!)

  3. I think you are beautiful by the way, and I am happy to see this honest review of Stitch Fix! I want to pull the trigger and give it a try, but have been hesitant about the price and whether or not it’s worth it, but after reading your review, I just might try it! And I’ll use your referral code if I do!

  4. I LOVE all these happy pictures!! I love Stitch Fix!! And I think I totally just bought the same chevron shirt you were Fixed with but in red… It’s such a cute shirt!! And because I haven’t gushed enough or used enough exclamation points yet…. I LOVE the picture of you and your daughter!! Y’all look so super happy and like y’all are having a blast!!
