My Review of the Styling Service Stitch Fix!
Yep. Been there, especially at the very end of a season when I am tired of my same ol' same ol' or the beginning of a season when I take inventory of what is in the storage boxes and think "Really? I actually wore that last year?!"
I decided to test out Stitch Fix for spring this year, mainly because after having kids, I feel a bit too old for mini skirts (ok, WAY to old according to ahem...some people), not entirely sure if I can pull of skinny jeans anymore, and am looking for the best way to stay young while not looking like I am trying to stay young. Get it?
First things first. I hopped on their site and was taken to a style profile. They asked me questions like:
Basics- height, weight, size
Style classification- Bohemian, Classic, Glamorous, Edgy, Preppy, Romantic, Casual Chic
They then gave me 7 sets of clothing and asked me what I thought of the collection:
Don't like it much at all
Here are a few examples (but they don't tell you which style classification each belongs to! I figured it out):
Here's what I told them in the final notes section:
Yes, I'm a mom but I don't want to look like a mom. I had a baby 3 months ago so would love to avoid anything that hits tight around the midsection. That being said, I don't want baggy, shapeless items either. I work(ish) in the world of fashion so love more edgy pieces that stand out.

Price: $20 styling fee per fix, which you can use towards your final purchase.
Discounts: You can get 25% off your entire order if you keep all five items.
Frequency: Schedule fixes as often as you like- it isn't a subscription service, so no worrying about "forgetting to cancel"
You get these style cards with each fix that tell you how to style each item so you can see how to incorporate everything into your wardrobe (genius).
If you want to give this service a try, you are only in for $20 (which gets applied towards anything you want to keep). Check it out here and this link will tell them I sent you!
Also check out their blog for different styled outfits! Although I only kept one item, I am a fan of the concept. They say that the more feedback you give your stylist, the better your fixes get.
Disclosure: My $20 styling fee was waived thanks to Klout, but anything I purchased was with my own funds. As always, all opinions are honest and my own.
