I consider myself pretty fashionably competent. I know the basic rules of thumb and all of the do’s and don’ts in fashion. I know enough to know that some rules need to be broken every once in a while, and I know that trendy is one step away from tacky. Most of all, I know you should bring your own unique voice to the table. I’ve heard a lot about Stitch Fix over the past year, but I was hesitant to pay someone else to pick out clothes for me. Who knows me better than me? Why would I pay someone to try to get to know me?
Well, I recently caved and gave it a try and I’m in love! I had absolutely no idea it would be this simple. I basically answered a few questions online, submitted what dates I would be interested in receiving my fix, and voila! In a few days my box was here with notes and even suggestions on how to style each piece I received.
There were tons of fall colors (which I love) and fabrics that work perfectly with the balmy Florida autumn. I was impressed by both the quality and the versatility of my box. I received:
It was as if they were inside my head!
I loved how all of the pieces meshed with my existing wardrobe and show collection. So it’s not as if I had to run out and buy a bunch of accessories for my new items. The denim was high-quality and all of the shirts were incredibly comfortable and right on trend with the season in my region.
One of the best parts about this fix was that these were all pieces that I loved when I had tried them on, but I’m not convinced that I would have chosen them myself in a store. With two young boys its tough for me to get to a store alone anyhow, but to be able to try these pieces on and get outside of my comfort zone would have never happened without Stitch Fix.
I’m no longer a size zero, and as a curvy girl fit and comfort is very important to me. I’m also far from model height, so the fact that they were able to nail not only my size, but score me the petite cuts I needed is a miracle. I cannot tell you the countless hours I’ve spent in my life trying to find my size in a petite (I’ve even resorted to wearing ankle cut, because it fit me just right).
I am such a happy camper, I can’t wait to try my next fix!
