In early July, I received my second maternity Stitch Fix (affiliate link!) in the mail. I debated whether I’d share this Fix or not since there were a bit more misses than my first Fix and I didn’t take individual photos of the pieces. Even if this Fix was a bit more of a dud, Stitch Fix allows you to try on some clothes that you might not otherwise pick for yourself. Sometimes it’s a win, like the maxi skirt. Other times, it’s a miss, like the red dress.
How Stitch Fix Works
Here’s a quick refresher for the ladies who haven’t heard of Stitch Fix. Stitch Fix is an online personal stylist for women. They carry “regular”, petite, and maternity clothes and accessories. To get started, you fill out an extensive style, fit, and lifestyle profile (they also recommend sharing a Pinterest board showing your style preferences), including your budget. When scheduling your “Fix,” you can also include a note for your stylist about any upcoming events or items you’d like to include or exclude from your Fix. Since I’m pregnant, I’ve shared updates on my weight gain (eek!), how my belly has grown, and some of the other maternity pieces I purchased elsewhere.
A personal stylist will then select 5 items for you. At this point, you’re charged a $20 styling fee and this is applied to any items purchased from your Fix. Your Fix is shipped directly to you (so convenient!) with a note from your stylist and a styling card showing examples of how to wear the pieces. Like so:
You have three days to decide whether you’ll keep or return any of those 5 items. The $20 styling fee will be applied as credit towards any items you purchase. If you buy all five items, you get 25% off the entire purchase! Return shipping is free, so you can easily send back whatever you don’t want by placing everything in the big return envelope that comes with every Fix.
When you check out, you have an opportunity to share style, fit, and price feedback on the individual pieces your stylist chose for you, as well as on the whole process. This gives them an idea of how to make future Fixes even better for you. You can also schedule your next Fix. I skipped the August Fix, but have the September one in transit.
