Something that would make me smile is not having to think about what I’m going to wear. If I was really wealthy I would love to have a chef and a personal stylist. Lady Grantham of Downton Abbey doesn’t have to worry about cooking or getting herself dressed. Most of us are not Lady Grantham, but there are resources that can help take the thought process out of both of these things. This post will focus on what to wear. I first read about Stitch Fix on the blog Dine and Dish. Kristen of Dine and Dish had used their services and was happy with them.
Stitch Fix is a website which picks out clothing for you based on your individual style. You fill out an extensive questionaire on your style preferences, price range and size. Personal stylists then select five items to send you. One item is an accessory piece. The fee is $20 and if you decide to keep any items it’s applied to your purchase. If you don’t like anything you can send them all back in a prepaid envelope which is provided, but they keep the $20.
I decided to give StitchFix a try at the beginning of this summer. I liked most of the items they sent, but didn’t LOVE them. They were a little pricier than what I normally spend on shirts, but good quality. The stripped shirt was similar to one I already owned. I felt like the stylists did a pretty good job of matching my style. Since I can be extremely picky I had my friend Diane come over to check out the pieces. She was familiar with a few of the brands and agreed they were of good quality. I decided to keep the necklace, but returned the rest. However, I would try Stitch Fix again.
If you’re someone who is short on time, doesn’t love to shop or would just like to get out of a clothing rut Stitch Fix may be the answer for you. It can also be a nice resource if you are shopping for a particular event. If you give it a try, be sure to let me know what you think.
