Have you ever been shopping and you’ve lugged about 498 things to try on into the hot and sweaty box they call a fitting room? You know the one I’m talking about right? The one with the funky mirror and nasty carpet and door that won’t lock. That one. That’s where I was a few weeks ago trying on shorts and swimsuits. Now it’s bad enough to try on swimsuits. I mean. Worst. Chore. Ick. But when you lug all 498 things in and absolutely NOTHING works, it’s downright dejecting! And then you’re all hot and sweaty, and your hair is a mess, and you may have broken your necklace.(This post is not sponsored by Stitch Fix. or any other company. I’m just a very dedicated shopper!

And that, my friends, is why I love Stitch Fix. Pretty things arrive in a pretty box, delivered right to your front door. You try them on in the comfort of your own home. Using your own mirror. And life is good, even if things don’t quite fit.
What is Stitch Fix? Just in case you haven’t heard of Stitch Fix, it’s a stylish subscription service that allows you to add cute things to your wardrobe, without having to shop for them yourself. I love that I can write my stylist a note if I have an upcoming special event or occasion, or just want to add something new to my closet.
How does it work? It’s so easy and really fun to get started. Just create your style profile at StitchFix.com and answer a few simple questions about your taste preferences, sizes, budget, and clothing needs. When you are ready, you can schedule your first fix. You’ll be matched with a personal stylist who will review your style profile and handpick five items just for you. The clothes are shipped directly to your door so you can try them on in the comfort of your home. Shipping and returns are FREE. Try everything on, keep what you love, check out easily online, or use their handy app, and return any unwanted items in the prepaid shipping envelope that is included in your fix. They even offer a 25% discount if you buy everything in your Fix!
How much does Stitch Fix cost? When you schedule your fix, you will be charged a $20 styling fee for the service, which is automatically deducted from the price of any items you choose to keep. Prices vary and you can customize your budget for various types of clothes in your style profile. I personally have my preferences set in the mid-price range, but you can choose from several price points – all the way to ‘luxe’. .Stitch Fix offers styling services for plus sizes, men, maternity, petites, and are even testing out fixes for kids! There might be a grandkids’ fix in my future.
Here’s my July Fix Reveal!
Here’s the note from my sweet stylist, Katherine. I had asked for pieces that would all work together, and also with things I received in previous fixes.
XCVI Shany Side Slit Straight Leg Pant | CHASER Noreena Cutout Detail Linen Knit Top
I’m going to be honest here. I really didn’t like this shirt or the pants on me. The shirt was a bit boxy on me, and the pants, though super comfy, just made me feel frumpy. Back they go!
ELAN Nasia Button Down Top
NAKAMOL Ronnie Natural Stone Beaded Earrings
These are so pretty! And they fit! LOL…I wear a lot of pink, so I know I’ll get plenty of wear from them, so I kept them.
SKIES ARE BLUE Theresa Embroidered Dress
This is a beautiful dress. I mean stunningly gorgeous. The embroidery is perfectly detailed. The tassel tie is adorable. The price is great! I love everything about it. Except for the length. If it had just been two inches longer!!! I really struggled with my decision on this one. But I’m just really uncomfortable with shorter length dresses, and at the end of the day, I just knew I wouldn’t wear it. Sadly, I sent it back too.
My July fix isn’t a home run. Because you’re not always going to love everything you try on. The joy of Stitch Fix is that I didn’t have to go to a store and try a bunch of stuff on, and it was super easy (and free) to return what I didn’t keep. I sent my stylist some notes about what I didn’t like, and why. I can’t wait to see what they send me next month! Check back for the August Reveal! I’m asking for things to wear on my trip to Colorado!
