What is Stitch Fix: The Long and The Short of it.

What IS 'Stitch Fix'?

(jump down for the TL;DR)
"For busy women on the go, Stitch Fix is the personal styling service tailored to your taste, budget and lifestyle that helps you look and feel your best every day."
"Stitch Fix is the first fashion retailer to blend expert styling, proprietary technology and unique product to deliver a shopping experience that is truly personalized for you. Simply fill out the Stitch Fix Style Profile and our personal stylists will handpick a selection of five clothing items and accessories unique to your taste, budget and lifestyle. You can buy what you like and return the rest!"
1. Fill out your Style Profile
Begin by filling out the Style Profile. This helps us understand your size, style, shape, budget and lifestyle. Completing your profile should only take about 10 minutes.
2. Pick the date you’d like to receive your shipment

We’ll send you a selection of five clothing items and accessories handpicked by personal stylists on the date you choose. At the time your stylist selects your items, you will be charged a $20 styling fee. That $20 will be applied as a credit toward anything you keep from your shipment.
3. Try everything on in the comfort of your home

We encourage you to try on everything our personal stylists have picked for you because you just never know what will look great on! Create new outfits by pairing what’s in your shipment with the items that are already in your closet.
4. Buy what you like and return the rest 
Take three days to decide what you’ll purchase and what you’d like to send back. You’re only charged for these items when you tell us what you’re keeping and returning. Check out by logging in to your account to pay for those items you want to keep. The $20 styling fee will be applied as credit towards any items you purchase. If you buy all five items, we’ll give you 25% off the entire purchase! Simply return the items you don't want in our pre-paid mailing bag and drop it at any USPS mailbox. Stitch Fix clients enjoy free shipping both ways as a benefit of using our service!
5. Tell us what you think!
Don't forget to give us specific feedback on each of the items you receive. Our personal stylists are able to send you better selections when we know what did and didn’t work for you, and why. Our blog offers a number of tips on the best ways to communicate with your personal stylist. If you choose to receive regularly scheduled shipments, we will automatically schedule the delivery date for your next shipment. You can always choose an alternative date that better suits your needs or opt out of regularly scheduled shipments entirely. Stitch Fix does not require a membership fee or a monthly subscription.

"Our goal is to make shopping fun, effortless and empowering for busy women on the go. We believe that if you feel confident in how you look, it affects your life in positive ways. From leading a meeting to laughing with loved ones, confidence has a way of boosting everything and everyone around you. At Stitch Fix, we’re here to make getting dressed simple and rewarding, so you can focus on being your best self."
"Each customer gets a unique referral link to share with friends. For each friend who signs up and orders a shipment, you will get $25 in Stitch Fix credit! The credit will be deposited in your account as soon as your friend’s package has shipped. "

***** The TL;DR Version! *****

It's a subscription box of clothes! 

  • 5 Items per box. No more, no less.
  • You can personalize the frequency (1x a month, 2x a month, every other month, or less frequent!)
  • Fill out style profile: what kinds of clothes you need/want, fave colors/patterns, style, along with 'don't send' options
  • It's $20 per box which is credited toward anything you keep (buy). Buy none, forfeit the $20. Buy all, get 25% off total purchase. 
  • Take about 3 days to decide.
  • Refer a friend who orders box, get $25 credit!
  • Free shipping both ways, Easy pre-paid label returns.
  • They do bags, purses, clutches, jewelry, scarves, coats, shoes, dresses, work clothes, jeans, casual clothes.

Why do I do it? I have 2 kids and a dirty house. I don't have time to make repeated trips of 10 items to dressing room just to be disappointed with everything I pick out. 
PS. It's a little addicting.
