I was so excited to discover Stitch Fix a few weeks ago. I saw that a friend had posted and raved about her “fix” on Facebook and had to find out more about it out. Basically, Stitch Fix is like a personal stylist and personal shopper all rolled into one, but one that lives online. So that means, they never meet you in person, but they meet you via social media. To give your stylist a glimpse into what you like and what you are about, you can provide links to your style board(s) on Pinterest, your blog, your Twitter handle and even other style icons that you love. Then they assign a stylist to you who will pick 5 items within your preferred price range(s) and ship them to you for free. You keep what you want and send back (free returns) what you don’t want. There is a $20 styling fee that will be applied as a credit to your fix as long as you keep at least one item. If you don’t like any of the items in your fix (doubtful), you are out $20, BUT if you keep all items in your “fix”, you will get a 25% discount. To make your final purchase, you simply go through the check out process within your online account and you are done–very easy. Find out more here.

The best part, in my opinion is the mystery of what’s inside the box. It is fun to get a different perspective on your style and exciting to see what they come up with. I mean, what stylist, in any other scenario, would only charge $20 for their time? None! So, without further ado, here is what I received in my first “fix”. (I was not planning on writing a post about this, so please excuse the lame photos)

I would have kept all 5 times, however I had something similar already so I decided to send back the blazer and the necklace. Overall, fix #1 was on target and I loved the experience. I can’t wait to see what they send next. Oh, by the way, you can schedule your “fixes” which allows you to manage them based on you budget or based on those times of the year when you plan to make clothing purchases. If you sign-up, please let us know what you think about your first fix. Enjoy!
