So if you’ve been following my blog, you know that I’m no fashionista… in fact, it’s fair to say that I have zero fashion sense at all. I may have even blinded my FedEx delivery driver with the outfit I was wearing yesterday – Picture 1980 flannel PJ bottoms pared with a ‘vintage’ VW t-shirt that said ‘Farfegnugen’ on it… Yeah, poor guy.
My last clothing shopping spree was at my neighbors garage sale where I scored two shirts, a skirt, and a pair of brand new Guess Jeans for $6! My go-to outfit is always a pair of Yoga Pants (although I’ve never actually done Yoga), a Tank Top or T-Shirt, and a pair of Flip Flops (also known as ‘slippers’ here in the islands). Anything fancier than that makes me feel like I’m wearing a scarlet letter on my chest. Besides, let’s get real, when I’m not spending 5 hours in the kitchen every day, I’m out gardening, homeschooling, & busy raising boys – I’m most certainly not going to win any fashion contests anytime soon!
So when my friend Vanessa, the Crafty Gemini raved about her experience with Stitch Fix, I figured I’d give it a whirl. Plus, she gets $25 credit towards her future purchases – a win-win!
Side Note: This is not a sponsored post, but it does contain affiliate links… which means that if you click on any of the links in this post, I may receive a small percentage of the sale (which doesn’t cost you anything extra). Every little bit helps me keep this blog up and running, so thank you very much for your support! =)
What is Stitch Fix you ask? Well, it is an online personal stylist service who coordinates outfits & picks out what clothing they think will fit & flatter you best. Her decisions are based on a long questionnaire which is completed online & includes multiple choices, photo style boards, and even a place for you to link your Pinterest board with some design ideas (I obviously don’t have one of those! LOL!). Once you sign-up, you are charged a $20 fee for the personal stylist’s time (which is deducted from your purchase if you decide to keep the items).
Here’s a sample of one of the options…. Hmmm… I kind of like the shirts – but I definitely don’t love it.
The average price for a Stitch Fix box is a little steep, but considering I haven’t purchased new clothing for myself in the last decade – and the fact that I absolutely hate shopping – it seemed like a fun thing to try. Plus, there’s no obligation to keep anything they send you – you can send it all back in a free postage paid package. However, if you decide to keep all 5 items they send, you get an extra 25% off the total, plus the $20 style credit.
Here’s a more realistic fashion board for me:
My first Stitch Fix box is scheduled to arrive sometime around the 19 of February – I’m looking forward to seeing what they come up with & will share it in a follow-up review post for all of you. ***READ THE FOLLOW-UP REVIEW HERE**
In the mean time, if you want to try Stitch Fix for yourself, here’s my Referral Link… If you like it, I’ll get credit to spend on my future purchases.
