Stitch Fix Round 2

My second Stitch Fix came in the mail the other day. After my first fix, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect this time around. Although it was super fun filling out the style profile, linking to my Pinterest board (!), and receiving a personally styled box of items in the mail, many of the items were much too expensive (including the jeans I bought) or a little bit not my style. But I really enjoyed the process and I believe in trying new things at least three times before deciding whether I like it or not.

In light of trying new things, I thought it would be fun to style some of the items I received with some items I already had in my closet. Also, I need major help making a decision on what I should buy this time… : )

I was super excited to find that I really liked my entire fix this time. And it was much less expensive than my last fix ($170 for everything versus $300 for everything in April). To me, this says that there truly is someone on the other end taking my feedback into consideration and checking out my style dreams on Pinterest. The colors, styles, fit, and prices of this fix were much more realistic for me. And let me just say, the quality of all the items I’ve received so far – even the accessories  – are pretty top notch. So much better than the Forever21, Charlotte Russe, and JC Penny’s quality I’m used to.Nature Crafts Love: Stitch Fix PeekNature Crafts Love: Stitch Fix Peek

This fix was super great because not only did everything fit (expect the maxi dress is a little too big), but it’s also filled with a good mix of things I can wear to work or out-and-about.

Has anyone else given Stitch Fix a try? I’d really love to hear what others think. Okay! Off to go try everything on AGAIN, and maybe make up my mind about what I should keep. : )

ps… for the crocheters and knitters out there, that Baggu canvas bag would make the PERFECT on-the-go yarn bag.


What’s New: Stitch Fix

I’m totally loving this mail-order subscription club trend that’s happening lately. You may remember my Freckled Fawn post from a few months ago. Freckled Fawn was my first mail-order subscription and I’m still loving it! Pssst… thinking of giving Freckled Fawn a try? Save $5 on your subscription by entering my full name and email address at checkout (lanae caulfield, naturecraftslove(AT)hotmail(DOT)com)!

My newest subscription is to Stitch Fix. Have you guys heard of it? It’s great!

ImageYou get to fill out this extremely thorough style profile that includes information like your size, what kind of trends you like (and don’t like), what types of clothes you usually wear, how much you like to pay for clothes, and much much more. You can also link to your Pinterest style board so your stitch fix stylist can see what you’ve pinned. Once your style profile is complete, pay $20 to schedule your fix then sit back and relax while a stylist puts together some outfits for you!Image

When your fix arrives, you get three days to decide on which items you like, love, or hate. Keep the items you want, and send the rest back! It’s that easy! Plus, your $20 that you paid goes toward any item(s) you choose to purchase. If you love everything, they’ll even give you 25% off for purchasing all the items in your fix. Fun, right?! Here’s the items from my first fix.

ImageEven though I really loved the skinny jeans, scarf, and striped maxi dress, I ended up only keeping the jeans. I have a million scarves, and I was a little too broke to buy both the maxi and the jeans. The pink shirt was a great style and fit, but pink isn’t my favorite color to wear, so I chose to send it back. The printed blouse was a little too loud for me, so I sent that one back as well. These are all things I included in my Fix evaluation. When you send all your clothes back, you fill out an evaluation online about how much you loved or hated each piece they sent you.

ImageThe style guide really helps with ideas on how to wear something, as well! I’m such an “experience” kind of person. Even though spending money on things like clothes and doodads isn’t my fav, I’ll pay for an experience all day every day. Stitch Fix is well worth the $20 for the experience of having someone style some outfits for me! Plus, I love surprises (especially ones that show up at my doorstep)!

Sound intriguing?? Check Stitch Fix out and see for yourself! I’d love to see what you get in your fix!

Hope you enjoy your weekend! xoxo!
