I have to admit: I’m not always the most fashionably-dressed Mom around. But I’ve wanted upgrade my look recently; to make an effort, if you will. And so I gave Stitch Fix a try. And if you try it, too, MomsLA will be paid a small fee for sharing our link with you.
When it comes to my wardrobe, I have no need for Runway looks; most of my day is spent near a computer or grabbing groceries, but I’d like to look stylish.
I don’t have time to shop multiple stores and try on different items, looking for the things that fit best and put together multiple outfits. I probably need a personal stylist, and maybe that’s a good idea for another time, but in the meantime, Stitch Fix is an ideal solution for me. In fact, I have 4 reasons why I think it’s great.
- Easy to Set Up
The first thing to do is fill out a personal profile, which is a series of questions designed to figure out your size, style, and budget. The idea is that the Stitch Fix stylists (or algorithm) “learns” what you like and dislike, and sends more of what you like – and less of what you don’t.
This takes a few minutes to fill out completely, but then you’re good to go. You’ll tell the system how often you want to receive shipments of clothing, how much you want to spend, and whether you’re looking for work clothes, everyday looks, or clothes for special occasions. Or all of the above.
Bonus: I filled out the profile on my own time; I didn’t have to set an appointment with anyone else – or get out of the house and find parking at the Mall.
- Super Cute Clothes
Take a look at what they sent me – adorbs! I really liked the pieces they sent, and would have bought all 4 of them if they had fit. The off-white blouse was just like another I bought a month ago, so I chose not to keep this one in my closet, but not because I didn’t like it. In fact, I think it demonstrates just how well they understood me. And I loved the dresses, but they just didn’t fit right. The yellow blouse in the lower left corner? Loved it.
Plus when you get the clothes, you also get styling ideas from Stitch Fix.
So then I tried to style the yellow blouse myself – what do you think?
- Stylist Who Learns About ME
What’s great about the system, even though I can’t wear these dresses right now, is that I can give feedback about each thing I bought or returned and the stylists will know that.
For example, until I slim down in my core, I don’t want to keep any of the form-fitting slinky dresses they sent me this time, even though I love the look and style. But the yellow blouse is perfect and I let them know to keep things this size and style coming my way.
- Easy To Return
Once I realized I was only keeping the one blouse, and I filled out my feedback info on the website, I was ready to send back the other items. I folded them up, put them into the pre-addressed mailing bag they included, and dropped it at the Post Office. No Muss, No Fuss.
