The demands of work, grad school and home life finally caught up with me and I realized that shopping in my closet was no longer an option. I was in desperate need of a wardrobe makeover. I don’t have the time nor interest in heading to the local shopping mall and I was at a loss as to what to do. The season would change soon and I hate being that girl that complains of having nothing to wear. Stitchfix to the rescue! I noticed one of my girlfriends was always perfectly, causally and prettily dressed. I’d complimented her on the perfect cut of her jeans and the really cute blouse she was wearing. Her response, “I got it from Stitchfix!” She explained how stitchfix works and how to optimize the items I’d receive each month and I signed up without hesitation.
A quick google search opened a whole new shopping world for me. A world where I sat at home and let some shop for me. I set up a style profile so my stylist would know exactly what looks I wanted for the Spring/Summer season. My height, sizes, weight, color preferences and items I needed to round out my current wardrobe were all added to the profile. My friend Natalie suggested I fill out a Pinterest page that would give the stylist a visual idea of wanted in my ‘fix’. I wanted looks for work-to-happy hour so I chose outfits that would work for every occasions. While I waited for my first ‘fix’ I read the blogs of the stylists and satisfied customers. The site has fashion tips, stylist’s blogs and a gallery of past looks. I love that and added some of those looks to my Pinterest page.
My ‘fix’ finally arrived and I was tickled pink! It felt like Christmas in April. From the buttery yellow Miz Mooz oxfords to the Kentucky Derby-esque white eyelet dress I was happy with the entire selection. The happiness helped me get the 25% buy everything discount making the entire experience affordable. Oh yes it was affordable because I was able to set a price ceiling on the items that the stylist chose so no uncomfortable surprises. These were all items I would have chosen for myself if I could stay focused in a mall. My second fix contained a peach romper, a striped blazer, a light blue leather clutch and a flowered tank to wear with the sexy jeans that were tucked in the very bottom of the box. All of the items fit well and were perfect for my budget!
