I’ve always loved fashion.
But that doesn’t mean I knew how to dress myself. I was one of those people who bought clothes/shoes/accessories in pieces. Then I ended up with lots of things that didn’t go together. Always wondered how other people did it. Did they think about how it would go with something they already had before they bought?
My inability to style was aggravated by my first ‘real’ job. I wore standard black pants and a plain, white dress shirt to work.
I felt a complete loss of identity!
I spent countless hours online after work looking for clothes. But where? Everything seemed to be either casual college wear or 40′s something power suit. Where’s something in the middle? Where’s something young, stylish, fun, yet appropriate for work?
I know part of the problem was me! There are probably plenty of clothes out there that can be styled for my age. But I don’t know how. I need help!
That’s when I serendipitously stumbled upon a blog about Stitch Fix.
Stitch Fix is a fashion styling company that send you happiness in a box!
Each time you request a Fix, they charge $20 styling fee and send you a boxful of mysterious clothes accompanied by styling cards (perfect for me! And I actually learn from these!), showing how you can style the piece. You keep and pay for what you want and send back the ones you don’t.
In a way I think Stitch Fix is kinda like Netflix for clothes. But Instead of ‘suggesting’ what movies you might like, they’re trying to predict what kind of clothes you’ll love!
When I knew my Stitch Fix was coming, I’d drive home with butterflies, wondering what surprise was in store for me.
Since October, Stitch Fix has been supplying me with boxes of clothes. And what started out as my quest to dress better for work has morphed into dressing better in general. I’m no longer just looking for work clothes. I keep getting my Fix because I like surprises in a box!
I’m officially addicted. I need my Fix NOW!!!
