Over my break from work I did some blogging catching up and playing around on Pinterest, and I ran into a couple of posts on with Stitch Fix reviews. Between that and re-organizing my closet and seeing some areas that needed a few more pieces, I scheduled a fix in the middle of December and it was supposed to come January 7th. Much to my excitement, it came early, and with great pieces!
Ultimately, though, I went back to the thought that I had no reason to buy something that I sometimes thought was cute. I decided to just quickly checkout on the Stitch Fix Website and pick the pants and striped top and hurry on with it so that I didn’t change my mind.
All my items are packed in the pre-paid shipping envelope that is sent with the box of clothes, and I’ll drop it in the mail tomorrow to make it’s way back to the Stitch Fix HQ!
What would you have kept and sent back?
I will say I was A LOT more pleased with this fix than my last one. And I know why I was…
- Be detailed in your Stitch Fix requests: Don’t leave it blank or just write a sentence or two. Tell your stylist what you’re looking for and what you’re not. I said things like “no jeans” “I’d like a bright colored top” “I want a long sleeve shirt”. I got everything that I asked for!
- Keep your Style Pinterest board updated: I had been pinning outfits throughout December that I saw other people wearing. I searched for Stitch Fix Reviews and pinned outfits from those that I liked. I wrote little notes like, “Stitch Fix Stylist, I like this color but not the cut,” etc. I know my Stylist saw it because she included in her note to me that she had seen a pinned a lot of skinny black pants. She also mentioned that I had the same dress pinned.
- Update your Style Profile and add a note: Go back and check it every once in a while to see if it still applies. Your style changes over time, and so does what you wear, so keep it updated when you schedule a fix. Also, add a note there too. I noted here where I normally shop and what I look for in clothes in general. This is where I noted that I like quality clothes that fit well and look tailored.
- If you want something specific, ask for it: If you really need a dress for a special occasion or a wedding, explain what you’re looking for. Ask for options. They don’t care if you send items back, so if you want multiple dresses to try, ask. If you want all tops, note that. They listen to the notes in the fix requests.
- Give feedback on what you keep and send back: When you checkout online, it asks for feedback on why you kept what you kept and why you didn’t keep what you sent back. I was especially specific in these notes, and I look forward to seeing how that helps with the next items I get sent.
