It’s 6am and the alarm is screaming, “Get up, already!” You trudge, bleary eyed, to your closet to pick out an outfit for the day. But just like yesterday, the closet has nothing new to offer you. As you brush your hand through the disarray of clothing, you settle on the white Target tee along with the red Target cardigan, and a pair of khaki pants from Old Navy. You’ll spice it up with a pair of silver ballet flats, right?
Or did you wear this same exact outfit last Tuesday?? Gah, you don’t have time to debate this tidbit of information, there isn’t anything else in here you want to wear anyway.
If only you could afford a personal stylist…
I’m here to tell you, you can! Because I did!! It’s reasonably priced, easy, and tres cool!
Have you ever heard of Stitch Fix? I hadn’t either, but I found it via a friend, and it’s the most excellent service ever!Fashion should be a form of escapism, and not a form of imprisonment. ~Alexander McQueen Click To Tweet
Here’s how it works. You go to StitchFix.com, fill out a personal profile, your stylist then reviews your thoughts and send you 5 pieces she thinks fits your style, you keep the pieces you love, and send back the rest. The service costs only 20 bucks!!! And if you buy at least one piece, they credit the $20 back against your purchase. If you buy all five pieces, you receive a 25% discount off your purchase. WIN-WIN!
What if I don’t like any of the clothes?
Oh, you will, but in the rare case that you don’t, then you send everything back in the supplied postage paid baggie and pay the 20 bucks. That’s it!
Your package also comes with a personal note from your stylist and little fashion cards that illustrate how to mix and match each piece! She totally eliminates the guess work for you!
You can review each item you received online in order to give your stylist feedback so that she can make your next shipment even more personalized for you. In addition, you can setup shipments to come automatically or you can tell your stylist when to send your next package. You are in complete control.
Still skeptical? Then keep reading.
If I am being honest, I was skeptical at first. But I thought for 20 bucks, it’s worth a try. I setup my 1st shipment and just knew it would be a complete flop. Boy was I wrong!
I received my 1st shipment and bought 3 pieces!! It was like Christmas in September! I loved items I would never in a million years have tried on in the store, which is always my problem. My wardrobe remains stale because I’m not sure how to branch out plus I hate mall shopping. I was semi-hooked.
So I setup a 2nd shipment, feeling excited, yet still a little worried. Bought some more cool things I wouldn’t have picked out on my own. And I was completely in love and a customer for life!The fashionable woman wears clothes. The clothes don't wear her. ~Mary Quant Click To Tweet
Oh! Did I mention you can tell your stylist not to send certain items? I asked her not to send any jewelry, cuz duh, I make my own ya know. Ha! You can also tell your stylist to send casual clothes, work clothes, dressy clothes, and you can also name your price points.
Can you believe it?
I’m not an affiliate, so I don’t get any perks if you try out the service; just the happiness I feel sharing a superb service with you that I too used to think was out of my budget. If you have closet hatred, you should totally check out Stitch Fix. I bet you’ll come away pleasantly surprised.
