I’ve been getting Stitch Fix boxes for the last couple years! I’m so in love with the idea of having a stylist hand pick out items just for me and send them to my doorstep for me to try on! YAY! Since I’ve been doing it for awhile, I’ve figured out a couple important things that really help my stylist knock it out of the park every time!
WHAT IS STITCH FIX?
Tip #1: Create a Pinterest Board with Looks you Love
I have a “Style” Pinterest board and a “My Stitch Fix Style” Pinterest board because there are a lot of things I like style wise that I don’t necessarily want to own. My Stitch Fix profile is linked to my “My Stitch Fix Style” board so that my stylist can see the looks I want to wear & see pictures of me that I pin in that board (so they know what I look like!!) When I pin to My Stitch Fix Style board, I am specifically thinking of clothes that I want to where and styles that I think will fix my lifestyle. If you don’t already have a specific & quality board connected to your Stitch Fix account, you need to do that now!
If you don’t have a Stitch Fix account yet, now is the time! Click over and see what it is all about. Create a Pinterest board to link to when filling out your profile!
Tip #2: Leave a (specific) message for your stylist
You have your chance to share your thoughts! Take this time to let them know about holes in your closest (I’m looking for some easy to wear tops) or specific items you are looking for (I’ve been looking for a good pair of pointed toed flats.) I’ve sent over several specific things from my Capsule Wardrobe that I am lacking – it is nice to have them hunt for it! Tell them about an upcoming trip or event. When I was planing a trip to Santa Fe I let my stylist know and the fix was geared toward that & I totally just signed up for a birthday fix in May for my 28th Birthday! Maybe you want more variety for work clothes that layer because of the changing seasons or you want super comfortable & cute clothes because you just had a baby. This is your time to talk! Make use of it!
Tip #3: Make sure your profile is up to date
If you have already tried Stitch Fix, make sure you keep your profile up to date. That means going in every now and then and checking things out. Is your weight the same? Has your style preferences changed? Are there new Stitch Fix items – like petite sizes or shoe sizes that you have not filled out yet? Is your profile linked to a Pinterest board? I recommend scrolling through real quick every time you schedule a new fix! Just to make sure you are up to date!
If this is your first time filling out the profile be as detailed as you can! You can always go back and update it as life goes on. If you are on a journey to lose weight, be honest about your current number (you want your clothes to fit you well!) and change it as you shed those pounds! Start filling it out here!
Tip 4: Leave Descriptive Feedback
After you receive your fix and check out, make sure you take advantage of that comment box! Share WHY the item didn’t fit. ” I can’t stand the print, please never send anything like this print again” or ” This would have been perfect but too short/ long / wide etc” or any details you have! Even if you are keeping it share why! ” I love the length of these jeans” or ” This top fits my narrow shoulders so nicely” or “I’m keeping the dress because it doesn’t show my bra strap!” The positive & negative feedback are both helpful to perfecting your fixes!
Tip #5: Don’t be afraid to reach out!
If you have revived several bad fixes or your last one was just way out of left field (like you told them you hate skinny jeans & leopard print and all that is inside is black skinnies and leopard print accessories ) then email firstname.lastname@example.org right away! Stitch Fix has some of the BEST customer service out there and they really want to connect with you, figure out the problem, and make it right! Seriously. If you are crying over your last fix or just even a bit frustrated about how unlike you the fix is, shoot them a kind email letting them know what is going on and let them take care of you! You may just need a new stylist who “gets you” and that is okay!!
That’s it! Stitch Fix has been a life savor for me and I’ve found that these five tips really help my Stitch Fix boxes to fit my needs & closet best! Have you ever tried Stitch Fix? Are you thinking of trying?
