Have you ever tried Stitch Fix? With the holidays rapidly approaching, it’s time to start thinking about the perfect gift for everyone on our list. Each year, I struggle with what to buy for friends and family members. I know that 90% of the gifts that I buy are going to get returned yet purchasing gift cards to a store seems so impersonal. This year, I decided that I am going to get (a little) creative, and give the gift of Stitch Fix for all those “hard to buy for” people in my life.
So what exactly is Stitch Fix? It is an online styling service that delivers clothing and accessories hand picked for you directly to your door. Each Stitch Fix box contains five items for you to try on at home. You keep what you love, and send back the rest using the prepaid USPS envelope. Shipping and returns are always free. They even offer exchanges!
Don’t have time to shop for yourself this holiday season (I mean, who does!)? Try Stitch Fix for yourself!
There is normally a $25 styling fee which is subtracted from anything that you end up purchasing but Stitch Fix is waiving that $25 styling fee for Joggers and Gym Shoes readers!
Stitch Fix carries so many of my favorite brands – Joie, Ella Moss, Paige, Splendid, Rails, and Free People. They also carry a lot of their own brands so you will probably receive a few pieces unique to them that you could not find in stores. Who doesn’t love surprises?! 😉
If you’ve never tried Stitch Fix before, it can take a couple tries before you find a stylist that meets all of your needs and understands your style. It took me two times, and a change of stylist, before I loved what I was getting. That can be frustrating though. You have high expectations and then you are underwhelmed.
Here are some tips to get the most out of your Stitch Fix:
- Be very detailed when filling out your profile. Make sure you list brands that you like along with sizes you typically wear in those brands. If your sizes change, make sure you update your profile! I forgot to do this after I lost my baby weight but luckily you can exchange items that you want to keep for different sizes. Returns and exchanges are always free!
- Write a detailed note to your stylist each time you schedule a Fix. Don’t just say, “I like sweaters”, be very specific in the type of sweater style, color, etc. Do you have an event coming up? Let your stylist know about it so she can find you something special.
- Leave feedback when you checkout. The more detail the better. If the armholes on that shirt were cut too small, or if you weren’t crazy about the pattern but loved the fit, put it in the feedback.
- Link to a Pinterest style board and keep it updated! This is the absolute best way to really let your stylist know what looks you want to emulate.
