As someone who has always loved helping others discover their personal style, creating looks and putting them together for others, I decided that I would go ahead and give Stitch Fix a try because I wanted to see what kind of looks someone would come up for me.
For those of you who do not know what Stitch Fix is, it's basically a personal style service where you get your own personal stylist. Your personal stylist will curate 5 items for and you can opt to have the items sent to monthly, quarterly or every 2 weeks. It's really important to communicate your style to your personal stylist, you can do this by sending your links to your Pinterest board, Instagram account, Blog etc.
I was so excited to receive my Stitch Fix box but was a little disappointed when I opened the box because I saw a floral dress!! Guys, you must know this about me, when I was in design school I was in love with Floral, I designed a floral dress and it was horrible. It was the first dress that I completely designed, I drafted the pattern and all.
My teacher's description of the dress made me cringe and from then on I vowed that I would tone the floral down. Floral is so bold that if you wear it once I almost guarantee that someone you haven't seen since you last wore the floral will remember that your wore the floral LOL!!
Once I tried the floral dress on I was flattered because it actually looked sooo good! But again it's Fall, and floral is just not what I want to wear this season. I love how my stylist left me a note and told me to try something new and bold! And I appreciate that because this was new and bold!
I normally gravitate towards more darker colors such as black :) Black is my happy color in the Fall and Winter!
Next, I was sent a green dress which isn't pictured it just wasn't flattering on me :( so it's not pictured .
But my stylist nailed it with this look!
I was sent this jacket and jeans along with a camisole and while I loved this look the pieces are very similar to what I already own!
Like I said in my insta-stories I am very picky when it comes to shopping for new items. I have to LOVE it, you know that one item that you have that you could wear every single day.
I returned all items because I have so many similar pieces that it just did not make any sense for me to purchase these items again.
I really wanted WOW factor Fall/Winter pieces such as, a sweater with ruffle sleeves, a cute trench coat ,things that are moreChicago weather appropriate.
But overall I am super happy with Stitch Fix, I now know what exactly I need to communicate with my stylist for the next box. Communication is important, which is why I recommend sending a Pinterest board that has your exact style.
I will be receiving another Stitch Fix soon and I am excited to see what my stylist sends me next time! I will also make sure to send him more detail of my personal style.
I have a code that you guys can use! You will get $25 towards your Stitch Fix box! Remember you are not obligated to keep the items you can always return them as I did. $25 will automatically be applied when you schedule your first stitch fix here.
