First of all... thanks Stitch Fix for educating my poor 4-year old son on what a real mature woman of XXX should look like. He asked me the other day what a dress was. It was then I thought my appearance and choice of dress might need a little tweaking. I haven't bought any real clothes since well before baby#2 and t-shirt and shorts have become my normal everywhere attire.
Enter.. Stitch Fix.
A nifty little company that sends you a box of 5 items whenever you want based on a personal profile that you provide. It's like having a personal shopper but way less expensive. It is $20 per box, but the FULL amount is credited toward any of your purchases. You also receive a hefty discount if you keep all the items. Also choose what prices you are comfortable paying. I chose the lowest, and felt the items I liked were worth the price.
So what was in the box!?
A personalized note from my stylist, along with little cue cards on what to pair with what. I really loved two of the items. First this cute chevron top. I liked the way it draped in back, the front was a little short but it worked.
And this dress. The Sportsman liked it, so I ended up keeping just the dress. The belt and shoes are mine and were actually on my donate to Goodwill pile. So I saved money on not having to buy a complete outfit. Yay!
The only negative was the necklace was missing a jewel. I wasn't terribly disappointed though since it is not my style and I would have sent it back regardless. Customer support was very quick in responding when I notified them of the problem.
They also sent a blue chevron maxi dress. I am just not a maxi dress person, I feel like I am wearing pj's in public. And a bird blousey thingy that was just way big, and I am not a big fan of birds.
Overall, I loved the experience. I loved not having to drag the kids to the mall to shop as well as being able to try the items on with my existing wardrobe and get opinions from my picky family members.
