I’m not going to lie to you guys, I think I am getting a really bad addiction to StitchFix.
For those of you who have heard of them, awesome. For those who haven’t, let me sum it in the quickest way I know how: clothes, for you, picked out by someone else, and mailed to your door step. You pick what you want, pay for that and ship the rest back.
The first thing that I’ve come to understand and actually like is that I don’t keep all the items. First of all, that’s a really high expectation for someone like me – someone who is so particular about…well…everything. But without fail at least 1 of the items is exactly what I want and on average I keep 2-3 items per shipment. I don’t mind the 2-3 items for many reasons: I like having a couple of new things each month that I can put into my regular rotation and I don’t like spending a lot of money. The second thing that you should know about StitchFix is that their items are designer pieces and not the $15-20 finds you can score after spending hours at TJMaxx. And don’t get me wrong, I love me my TJMaxx but the girls at the ages of 3 and 1 just do not understanding flipping through every rack in the store for the one perfect piece. What they do love is tearing open my StitchFix boxes and then watching me try all the pieces on (seriously, it’s like a little fashion party on a monthly basis – they even clap). It’s definitely not for everyone, but even as controlling as I am, I’ve learned that my favorite pieces in my closet are my StitchFix pieces and that fuels my addiction.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s talk about my June fix. Overall, I was so so so excited when I saw the content but after trying everything on, I only ended up keeping one thing.
The pants: wanted to like them but they just didn’t sit right. I loved the “fit” but when I looked at myself in them they just didn’t do anything for my frame. Return.
The top: another one I wanted to like so much but it was just too long on my frame.
Here it is with the pants. Sigh….return.
Another top: LOVED this shirt so much but when I went to take a picture from the side I noticed a tear. First time that’s happened to my fix. Disappointing! Return.
Another top: cute color but didn’t look good on me. Return.
Tell me – how do you make time to shop for yourself?
