Are you considering trying out Stitch Fix, but just not sure if it’s something you’d like? I can relate. I wrote about my decision to try Stitch Fix recently because of the boredom I experience every time I look in my closet. It’s a sad state of affairs in there and it’s just getting worse as the weather warms up. My fall and winter wardrobes aren’t too bad, but spring and summer…not so much.
That’s where Stitch Fix comes in. My friend and I decided to sign up together and it was so much fun. We got together for a girl’s night in and after the kids were in bed we opened up our laptops and signed up.
The process of setting up an account was pretty simple. All you really need is an email address and credit card.
Once you have created your account, you are directed to a very-detailed questionnaire. I don’t know about you, but it caused me to do some soul searching. What styles do I really like and which of my assets do I want to flaunt? But, if you think about it, your stylist needs to get to know you as much as possible so she can pick clothes and accessories you’ll love. It might be a bit long, but it’s worth it.
Questions they asked included simple things like date of birth, height, weight and general size questions.
Then they get more personal and ask about your body type and how you like your clothes to fit.
My favorite part were the style boards. There are different clothing choices and you get to answer wether you “love it”, “like it”, “don’t really like it”, or “hate it”.
The most ingenious section I thought was the social media section. Stitch Fix asks for links to your public profiles on Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Twitter. How smart is that!?! My style board on Pinterest was the perfect place for my stylist to get to know me better.
The questionnaire ends with an open-ended “final thoughts” text box for any additional information you did not get to cover. This was great, although I wish this would have been longer. I found myself having to craft my closing statement as carefully as my Twitter bio.
My least favorite part about trying out Stitch Fix was the long wait time for my first order. It took over a month for my first Stitch Fix box to arrive. Having patience is not my strong suit and it was hard to not be disappointed every morning when I got dressed. I just wanted those 5 pieces to arrive…like yesterday. However, soon enough the email alert that my Stitch Fix had shipped showed up in my inbox and I was giddy. I texted my friend right away and we confirmed our shipments were to arrive on the same day. Yippee.
So did I like my first Stitch Fix? I’ll post photos of the five pieces later this week and let you know what I kept. I can’t wait to hear what you thought of the options too.
