In case you didn’t know, I’m a part time Stitch Fix stylist! It’s so much fun, and absolutely love it. Getting paid to style people is pretty much a dream come true! Plus, I work with such an amazing team of #girlbosses that it’s hard not to love the job. Since the company is still rather new (although it is growing exponentially) I get questions all the time from friends and family about what Stitch Fix is, and how it works. So, I thought I would share with you guys a little bit about Stitch Fix, and my top tips on getting your best Fix.
So, what is Stitch Fix?
Stitch Fix is an online personal styling service. Once you sign up, you are paired with a stylist who then chooses 5 pieces based on your style preferences. Those 5 pieces get delivered to your doorstep, where you try everything on and decide what you want to keep. Once you’ve decided, all you have to do is drop off your returns in the mail with the prepaid return bag! Easy peasy. It’s perfect if you don’t have time to shop, or if you’re just looking for a wardrobe refresh.
How to get your best Fix:
1. Fill out your entire style profile, in detail.
Make sure to fill out every part of your style profile and list all colors, styles, etc that you want to avoid, material preferences, jewelry types, etc. The more fully you fill it out, the better! Don’t forget to write in the “Profile Notes” section- this is where you can write any specific requests that aren’t on the style profile.
2. Create a Pinterest board.
If you’re able to, creating a Pinterest board is one of the most helpful things you can do! You don’t have to have thousands of pins, but pinning a few things that you love really helps us stylists get a feel for your style and the type of pieces you’d like in your Fixes. Plus, you can pin things directly from the Stitch Fix board!
3. Leave as much feedback as you possibly can.
I can’t stress this enough. Whether it’s good or bad, feedback is crucial! Let your stylists know what you like and dislike about the pieces in your Fix. If you don’t have time to write out a note, at least use the easy ratings. This helps us really narrow down what type of pieces to send or not send next time!
4. Have an open mind.
Even if you pull a piece from your Fix that you don’t immediately love, make sure to still try it on. I can’t tell you how many times people have told me they didn’t like a piece at first glance, or never would have picked it in the store, only to try it and absolutely love it. Trust your stylist and have fun getting out of your comfort zone. Your stylist wouldn’t have picked something if they didn’t think you’d love it! Plus, sometimes pieces simply look better on!
5. Keep in mind that inventory changes.
If you request a specific piece, we always do our best to try to find it for you! However, inventory is always changing, so it’s not a guarantee that you’ll receive any certain item you request. Even if something is unavailable, we’ll still try to find something similar. So, don’t be too disappointed if you don’t get exactly what you’re asking for! It’s just how it goes!
