5 Reasons Why I Love My Personalized Stitch Fix

by Alli

I finally bit the bullet and ordered my first Stitch Fix box. Yeah, I’m kinda late to the Stitch Fix party! I’m always a little anxious when I try something new. Did I make a mistake? Will I hate everything my personal shopper sends? Will the clothing fit? These are the type questions that run through my mind.

If you’re like my 20-something-year-old son and have never heard of Stitch Fix, it’s an online styling service that delivers a personalized shopping experience, just for you.

Why I Love My Personalized Stitch Fix

You just fill out your Style Profile and a personal stylist will handpick pieces to fit your tastes, needs, and budget—and mail them directly to your door.

I’m patiently waiting for my next box. Meanwhile, I’m sharing 5 Reasons Why I Love Stitch Fix!

5 Reasons Why I Love Stitch Fix

1. I Have my Own Personal Shopper

I actually enjoy adding information that helps my personal shopper find the perfect clothing for me. They know my weight, height, body shape (hourglass with a tad too much sand stuck in the middle) and what type clothing and accessories I like.

I let them know that I’m not crazy about my upper arms (age/gravity/etc.) and rarely go sleeveless. They also know I love easy, breezy, summer shift dresses.

2. My Bedroom is my Dressing Room

I don’t have to suffer through those horrible dressing room lights or get stuck in that one dressing room that is smaller than the others. I can prance around, walk up the hallway, sit down, stand up, shimmy and make sure I love my new dress/top/whatever. OK – maybe I don’t really shimmy! I’m not confined to the dreaded dressing room.

3. Save Time and Money

Sometimes I like to shop. Most of the time, I don’t. Who has time to run around from shop to shop trying to find that perfect summer top? Not me! Now I don’t have to.

4. I Only Keep What I Like

I’m surprised to admit that my favorite item in my first Stitch Fix box is the Kut from the Kloth denim boyfriend shorts. They are beyond comfortable, the right length (I’m too old for Daisy Dukes) and I love them.

Helpful Hint: Be sure and try everything on. Even if you think it’s not the right color, pattern, etc., you may be surprised!


5. Easy Returns

I have three days from the time I receive my box to decide if I want to keep all the items, some of the items or none of the items. I go to my personal Stitch Fix page and check out. There’s also a place to add notes, change the delivery date of your next box, etc.

Helpful Hint: Be sure and offer feedback on each article of clothing. It helps your stylist learn more about your style.

If you have a special event coming up, there’s a place to let them know. For instance, I’m headed to a tropical island soon and I asked for island wear in my next box. I’ll let you know if they deliver!

Each Stitch Fix box has a postage-paid return envelope. If you don’t want to keep an item, you just stick it in the envelope and drop it in any mailbox. Returns are so easy!

There’s Only One Miss in My First Box

I’m keeping every single item in my first box. However, there is one miss. The cutest summer dress was included in my Stitch Fix box. The sizing was way off! It was too tight for me, but fit my daughter, Caitlin, perfectly, so she now has a new dress.  She’s a lot smaller than me, so the sizing was way off on that one item. Everything else fits perfectly.

Guess what?

There’s also a Stitch Fix for guys? Have any of you tried it?

Stitch Fix seems like such an amazing service! I’m a curvy girl and they don’t have my sizes, but when I reach my weight loss goals I can’t wait to try them!

Alli June 9, 2017 - 10:11 am

I was impressed at the wide range of sizes, including plus sizes.

Sara-Jayne Jones June 9, 2017 - 8:05 am

I so wish that I was in the USA. Stitch Fix really need to come to the UK because it’s just perfect for me. I’ve read about them for about two years or so now and every time I sigh because I’d just love to try them! I hear you on the Daisy Dukes – but I do love denim shorts – and that stripy top is gorgeous! Hope your next box is full of fantastic surprises!

Eloise June 9, 2017 - 11:42 am

That sounds fantastic! my goodness! I would actually like to work for Stitch Fix as a personal shopper ; ) that sounds like fun!
I’ll have to consider using Stitch Fix for myself, I don’t have time to shop!

Rose Cottrill June 9, 2017 - 1:38 pm

I love this idea and all that you have in your box is great. I would love to be a personal shopper, it would be fun! The Stitch Fix for guys is quite interesting.

NYC Single Mom June 9, 2017 - 3:28 pm

I keep hearing about stitch fix so I love hearing your perspective. I am a bit heavy right now so I working towards getting a size smaller before I try it. But i love the idea of it.

HeidiDee June 9, 2017 - 3:37 pm

Wow I didn’t know that they had one for guys. Sounds like something my husband needs as he is the most finicky shopper ever!

Sarah Bailey June 9, 2017 - 6:06 pm

Oh my goodness this sounds absolutely amazing, there is something special about getting a personalised to you box of goodies!

Stitch Fix sounds like a really cool service! I would love to get a personalized box of goodies every month and it’s great that you only have to keep what you like.

Amanda Love June 9, 2017 - 8:28 pm

It’s good to hear that you’re loving your stitch fix! It’s a great way to get some clothes for yourself. I love that you liked every item except for one, just shows how accurate they really are!

Jocelyn @ Hip Mama's Place June 9, 2017 - 8:30 pm

I think Stitch Fix is worth it especially if you feel like your not really good at picking your own clothes or style. It’s nice to have someone shop for you, you might be surprised with what you’re going to get.

michele d June 10, 2017 - 8:20 am

Boy, I’m missing out! Stitch fix sounds like a great service. I never make enough time to go shopping for myself and this service would be great for me. I need to try it out.

Maurene Cab June 10, 2017 - 10:43 am

Stitch Fix sounds like fun. It’s great to use the bedroom as your safe and private dressing room.

Kristen from The Road to Domestication June 11, 2017 - 12:12 am

I’ve been wanting to try Stitch Fix for a while now! Eeeeek! I’m nervous! And I had no idea there was one for guys!

Rebecca Swenor June 11, 2017 - 5:30 am

Stitch Fix sounds like a great clothing subscription box. I love the idea of giving them your likes and dislikes along with a description of your body type then them sending your clothes. Thanks for sharing the information.

Agnes June 11, 2017 - 12:15 pm

I personally like shopping so this may not work for me but I know a lot of people who would love this service. Good idea

LaShawn June 12, 2017 - 6:16 am

I love the idea of Stitch Fix. Sometimes I don’t have time to shop like I want to and it’s great to have clothes delivered right to your door!

Adrienne June 12, 2017 - 9:56 pm

I keep going back and forth about signing up for this service. I just feel like I would spend way too much money! hehe I do love the idea of fresh new ideas for my wardrobe, though.

Carin Kilby Clark June 13, 2017 - 9:39 am

I do hear a lot about stitch fix and have thought about trying it. I just wasn’t sure if I had a real need for something like this because my closet is already so stuffed.

Alli June 14, 2017 - 8:56 am

I recently cleaned out and organized my closet and donated everything I didn’t wear. Some of them had the tags on them! I even gave away about 30 pairs of shoes. I was tired of my over-stuffed closet and always complaining that I didn’t have anything to wear. This time around, I’m only keeping the things I really love. 🙂

Katherine June 13, 2017 - 10:32 am

What kind of brands are included? Can you select a preference, considering the size issue?

Alli June 14, 2017 - 8:54 am

There are several different brands included. Some I recognized (like Kut from the Kloth) and others I didn’t. When you go to your Stitch Fix dashboard to check out, there are places to add notes as to why you liked or didn’t like that particular item of clothing. Also, when you initially fill out your clothing profile, it’s done in a way that your personal shopper learns what you do and don’t like. Finally, if you don’t like anything in your box, return them all and let them know in the dashboard why you didn’t like any items. They aim to please! Let me know if you try it! 🙂
