HOW STITCH FIX WORKS AND HOW TO GET YOUR BEST BOX?
At Stitch Fix Website, you fill out a VERY detailed style profile. They ask everything from your height, weight, to top and bottom sizes. You include details on the types of styles you like such as glamorous, preppy or boho as well as a bunch of info on how you want things to fit.
Theboxqueen’s Tip: Be as honest with yourself here as possible. I remember when I first filled my style profile, I answered the Q’s with more of what I dream my style to be rather than what was actually needed for my current lifestyle. I am a mom of three young kids. I love glam style, and incorporate that into my life here and there. The truth is most glam pieces are not functional for my everyday life. I now ask for more casual styles.
My suggestion is to fill out the style profile even if you are not ready to order just now; it’ll give you an idea on your style and you’ll get a sense on what Stitch Fix is about.
- You pay a $20 styling fee upfront. This is applied to your keepers, so if you keep at least one piece you don’t lose it. Also when you keep your whole box ( like I did a couple times so far) you get 25% off the entire purchase. I always keep at least one piece as I would hate to lose my styling fee.
- Make a Pinterest board that is a good representation of your style. Pin types of Stitch Fix pieces you like as well as your own photos so the stylists can see who they are styling and your fashion choices.
Theboxqueen’s Tip: Here is my personal Stitch Fix Pinterest Board. I pin what I like from Stitch Fix here as well as how I styled previous pieces so the stylists can get a better idea of what I like, my body type etc. I think these all help them find the best pieces for me. Feel free to join me there to see what I am liking from new SF items, and my new SF outfits.
- Leave detailed notes to your stylist when you check out. When it’s time for checking out, they ask you for feedback on your fix. Write why you loved your keeper item(s), and the specific reasons why a piece didn’t work for you.
Theboxqueen’s Tip: I always make sure to include details such as ” The waist was a tad too tight” or ” The color wasn’t flattering on me” or ” The skirt was two inches too short for my taste”. The more specific the better.
- Make requests but know that there are no guarantees. One fun thing about Stitch Fix is the surprise factor, and how it pushes you out of your comfort zone.
- If you don’t want to wait too long for fixes, sign up for automatic shipments. You can determine the frequency. I usually go for once a month nowadays but I may make it more frequent again once the new season rolls in.
- You have three days to decide, and mix and match with your own clothes. When you are done, you send back everything you don’t want to keep; in a prepaid envelope included with your box. Love how quick and easy this system works.
- I love that SF now offers exchanges. Do you love your items but need a smaller or bigger size? Just let them know to make an exchange.
- Stitch Fix now offers petite, plus, maternity, men’s and kids styling services.
What Do I Ask For In My Personal Style Profile ?
In a gist, I ask for pieces that are suitable for a mom of three kids under the age of 14, but who also loves cool, trendy items that can easily be mixed and matched. I think you can definitely be a mom, and stay chic especially with comfy pieces high on style. In addition, I ask for fun colors, cool details like shoulder cuts, back openings, or lace up designs as well as a variety of textures, and prints. I think these bring life to your closet, and also to your existing outfits. I also utilize the shoes & bags Stitch Fix sends and request them both frequently from my stylists.
STITCH FIX REVIEW JANUARY 2019
In my 74th Stitch Fix ( this number is reaching pretty crazy levels, no? 🙂 I am not complaining as I enjoyed every single box for different reasons) I received a pair of ripped jeans, a sweater, a pair of boots, a knit top, and a quilted jacket. As I am quite into capsule wardrobes lately, I asked my new stylist for a mini capsule wardrobe for this box and boy did she deliver. You can wear both tops with the same pair of jeans (although I am showing you other options for variety) plus the boots and the jacket go with both of those looks too. LOVE!
As always I’ll show you how I put together full outfits with each piece I received in my January Stitch Fix box. Under the photos you’ll find my style tips, outfit details, and also visuals that can be clicked and would take you directly to the products so you can check current prices & color options available. I also always point out the same Stitch Fix pieces I’ve found online.
Ready to start beauties? Let’s do this and start our first Stitch Fix Review of 2019! <3
The stylists at Stitch Fix styled the Vigoss cropped skinnies with boots and flats in two casual looks.
Style Tip: I was in need of a brand new distressed skinnies and this pair that is under $70 has the perfect fit, and just the right amount of distressing. ( Found same brand, identical style here on sale for UNDER $41) As soon as I put it on I felt good as it fit like a glove. The light color is very refreshing, and I wanted to pair it with my chunky, modern sweater to create a casual cool look.
The MIA boots (exact style linked) that also came in my January Stitch Fix completed the outfit perfectly and I appreciated that they added some height with the comfy the chunky heels . For accessories I chose this Rebecca Minkoff bag, and Rocksbox jewelry. You can try Rocksbox FREE for a Month here. This is my favorite jewelry service and they send designer pieces.
MIA BOOTS SALE UPDATE: Since I published this review I found the MIA BOOTS in a different color here on sale. I also found the same pair with a textured look here on sale!!!
Top: Cable sweater | Jeans: Vigoss via Stitch Fix | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Jewelry: Rocksbox (Get your FREE MONTH with this link ) Shoes: MIA Boots via Stitch Fix
STATUS JEANS – KEEPING
I decided to keep these jeans in a heartbeat. The fit is amazing, the look is just what I am looking for and need, and the price is unbeatable. If you need a similar style this is the same brand, identical style (just not cropped) on sale for $40.
RECREATE THE LOOK
STATUS BOOTS – KEEPING
As you could guess these cuties are going nowhere but staying right here with me to start their new lives. They’ll be adored. 🙂
Stitch Fix put together two casual outfits with the Pink Clover top. I really like the one on the left with the vest.
Style Tip: This knit top has a nice mix of athleisure and girly design details. It’s a great comfy weekend look that you can fancy up a bit like I did with these cargo pants and a pair of chunky heel peep toe booties. I added sparkly earrings to add shine and a bit of glam, and chose this Tory Burch bag (navy color on sale) to add a some structure and chicness. I think this is an effortless look. It made me feel dressed up just enough.
Top: Knit via Stitch Fix (Similar Style) | Pants: Green Chino | Shoes: Sold Out / Identical Style | Bag: Tory Burch | Earrings: Baublebar
STATUS KNIT TOP – UNDECIDED
I have a couple more days to keep my Stitch Fix box home, and I am undecided on this top. I am keeping the boots, and the distressed skinnies already and not sure if I should add one more style to the mix. We’ll see and I’ll update you ladies. 🙂
RECREATE THE LOOK
The burnt orange jacket was styled over a cheerful dress, and distressed jeans on the Stitch Fix styling cards.
STATUS JACKET – SENDING BACK
The things I love the most about this jacket is its eye catching color, and the lightweight fabric. I can’t quite put my finger on the why however the quality does not seem super high to me which I absolutely require for outerwear. This jacket is going back.
Stitch Fix styled the pullover in two casually stylish outfits. I love that leopard pattern bag. 🙂
Sweater: Stitch Fix (Similar Style with Fun Back Detail) | Jeans: DL1961 Crop Skinny Jeans | Boots: MIA Boots via Stitch Fix | Bag: Kensington Quilted Leather | Jewelry: BaubleBar + Rocksbox (Try my favorite jewelry service FREE for a MONTH here – no commitment)
RECREATE THE LOOK
STATUS PULLOVER – GOING BACK
This is surely a really cool piece with details I love. I have this similar color sweater with tie-back detail in my closet though and I am not sure I need two similar greens.
LOVE this bag with the statement making bird on the flap. <3
