I recently joined Stitch Fix, a website devoted to style. This may come as a shock considering my style might be considered “Target chic.”
I love Target.
But I found Stitch Fix through Etsy Stalkers,* and I was intrigued.
Here’s how it works:
- Sign up, wait for invitation – mine took less than 24 hours to arrive.
- Fill our your style profile. Yep. Sizes, style preferences, preferred price ranges, etc. (I chose “as cheap as possible” across the board, because like I said. Target chic. They stick as close your price preferences as possible).
This isn’t a subscription site, which is awesome. You pay a $20 “styling fee” whenever you decide you would like a “Fix” (you do have the option to set it up like a subscription if you want, so you get automatic shipments every month or whatever). Stitch Fix sends you a box with five items. You decide what you want to keep and send the rest back in the pre-paid envelope included in your box. The $20 you paid up front is then applied to your final purchase price. However: if you don’t keep anything from your box, they still keep your $20.
So! I decided it was time for a Fix (shipping is free, btw). They put my box in the mail on Friday and it arrived today – Monday. Here’s how it went. Clothes!
Clockwise from top left: Solaine 3/4 sleeve hi-lo top; lintley sleeveless faux wrap blouse; wavy double ring earrings; kasia colorblock silk tunic tank; genie splatter dress
The dress had pockets! But it did nothing for my shape. I loved the earrings but couldn’t justify the price. The wrap blouse and the red tank were okay, but the tank requires a strapless bra which I hate wearing, and the blouse has elastic around the bottom that sat weird on my hips. I’m keeping the blue top.
If you keep all five things from your Fix, you get 25% off. Unfortunately, even with the discount, the price is too rich for my blood. Plus, you know- I didn’t like everything.
So, this was fun. I’m looking forward to ordering another Fix in the hopefully near future. Recommended!

Note: I was not paid for this post, even though it kind of reads that way. Ha! As if someone would pay me for such a thing. I have like five readers. Probably.
