Liz’s List: Stitch Fix Personal Styling

Although I have lost most of my baby weight (dang you last five lbs!), it still seems like my clothes just don’t look right any more. They’re either too tight, too short or out of fashion. I have a new state of mind and needed some new clothes to go with it.

Enter Stitch Fix. Stitch Fix is a personal stylist of sorts that is done through the internet. You fill out an in-depth personal style questionnaire, tell them your size and what your clothing needs are – business casual, formal, casual, and even can send them a Pinterest board showing your personal style.

Then one of the Stitch Fix stylists picks out five “fixes” specifically for you. They can include tops, dresses, pants, skirts and accessories. You try on the clothes and keep whichever you like. The rest you ship pack in a pre-packaged envelope. Then you fill out a quick survey about your fixes – what you liked and didn’t like and why – so your stylist can continue to refine their picks to fit your style.

The best part is that all this is just $20/mo and that $20 goes toward the purchase of whatever you keep. You can set the price range of the items too. Most of the things I’ve kept have been around $40. Here are some of the things I’ve gotten in my first two fixes:

I kept the blue zig zag top, blue necklace, black maxi and orange geometric tank, and I have been wearing them non-stop. It feels great to finally have some clothes that A) I feel great in and B) fit my style perfectly. It also is pretty awesome that I didn’t have to haul Lila out to the mall to pick any of these out myself.

If you are interested in trying Stitch Fix yourself, I’d appreciate it if you’d use this link so I can get a $25 referral credit. :) Let me know if you have any questions about how it all works!
