How to get you best Fix!! Stitch Fix 101

Tips and Tricks to get a great Fix!

I get a lot of questions when I’m talking about Stitch Fix and sometimes I talk to friends that have received boxes that they weren’t so crazy about. So here’s a quick rundown of what I do to get a great box (and keep getting them!)

-In the beginning I did link My Style Pinterest board and my first two boxes were just ok. Then I started searching for Stitch Fix clothes and I found that they looked at those much more often than non Stitch Fix clothes.  If you pin a lot of Stitch Fix clothes you will still be surprised and definitely not disappointed!! 

-If you received a box you love definitely request the same stylist next time. She might not get your style perfect every time but she will learn what you don’t like pretty quick! I love my stylist Jessica.  She tries really hard and always tries to meet my request!

BE SPECIFIC!! If you need a pretty maxi dress for a wedding or some dress pants for work, SAY SO!! They are very so so happy when you can be specific on your wants!

-Even if you think you don’t like a piece, keep trying it on with different pieces of your wardrobe.  For example I just received a box yesterday and Jessica sent me a maxi skirt (I had requested one) and I looked at it and even tried it on :/ It was just ok. I went back to my closet and said “Is there any top that would make this skirt look amazing. And just like that I found a perfect lacy tank that made the skirt look so pretty. I even took another shirt she sent me that I wasn’t crazy about and put it on top of the lacy tank and BOOM! The outfit looked amazing! My point is don’t judge to quickly.

Don’t expect to like everything every time!  The goal isn’t to keep everything all the time but to build a great wardrobe and to find special pieces that truly makes us feel amazing. I never have been one to think outside my box, but Stitch Fix definitely does that for me!

My 2nd Stitch Fix Box! April 2015

Welcome to Petite Mom Living!! Thanks so much for taking time to read my review of Stitch Fix Box #2! I really wish I would have taken pictures of myself trying everything on but I didn’t know I was going to write about them, my third Stitch Fix Review will up shortly and I took pictures of everything!!

So this is how Stitch Fix works: You fill out a very detailed style profile explaining every aspect of your style and how you like things to feel and fit! You set the price range for each category along with what you would like to receive in your fix, like whether you would like all tops, or no jewelry, etc.. Then you schedule your Fix!! Your personal stylist will handpick five items for you which can include tops, pants, dresses, jewelry, purses, etc.. It is free shipping both ways. Keep what you love and send back what you don’t in a prepaid mailer!! No need to subscribe even though you can if you like! The cool thing is when you schedule your fix you can send your stylist a personal note explaining if there is something specific you would like that month!! When you receive your Fix you will get a little note from your stylist explaining why she picked what she did, and a style card showing different ways to wear each piece! And make sure you try everything on, even if you don’t like it at first. I seriously hated one of my tops until I tried it on and it ended up being my favorite! There is a $20 styling fee initially but that will come off the price of anything you keep even if you keep just one thing!! If  you decide to try it please use my link here so I can keep doing these posts on what I love :)

So when I signed up for my next box I was a little more specific on some items I was wanting, I had read several blogs on how to get a great box. I requested a certain Maxi dress and they were out of my size :( . I also requested a jean jacket and a pair of distressed skinny jeans. In my style profile I did select the option of not getting any accessories but I’m sure I will request them sometime! So let’s get to it!

Item #1 Kut From The Kloth Aviva Boyfriend Jean- Sent Back

When I requested a pair of distressed skinny  jeans this was not what I was expecting. My stylist wrote on my card that she did not have any distressed skinny jeans available in my size so she thought I might like these… uh no….these were not me at all! I didn’t like the first pair of boyfriend jeans in my first box! Lol I did send a little note to Stitch Fix about me expressing how much I hated the first pair and why did they send me another pair!!?? They were super awesome and gave me a credit just for not listening to my feedback. 

Item #2 Just USA Morrie Boyfriend Denim Jacket-Sent Back

I wanted to love this jacket so much! I tried it on with several other pieces I already had and I just couldn’t do it. It was way to big and bulky for me even though it was a small. 

Item #3 Gilli Zuli Maxi Dress-KEPT!!!

At first I was disappointed that I didn’t get the Maxi dress I requested but after three days of trying this on I fell in love!! The dress is super flattering on my small figure and I loved pairing it with this cute little jean jacket I already had! This is why I love Stitch Fix so much, even if I find one piece that I love it is all worth it!

Item #4 Sweet Rain Chrissy V-Neck Blouse- Sent Back

Initially I really liked this tank, it was a very pretty material and very different than what I would normally wear. It just didn’t look very flattering on me, it hung way to loose and I’m not a fan of V-necks.

Item #5 Renee C Tucker Crocket Trim Top- Sent Back

I loved this top, I should have kept it! The material was so so different I can’t even explain how it felt, very slinky but not see through or too thick. The only reason I didn’t keep this was the lace all around the neck and arms. The lace hung very loose and awkward. I still dream about this top though, lol….

There’s my review! And again if you’re interested at all pretty please use my link here so I can receive a credit. My next review (May 2015) will be up soon and all I’ll say is that it rocked!! Pics to come! Thanks and God Bless!! Monica
