Anyone who knows me knows that I’m easily excited. Maybe you guys know that about me already? So when I (with added facilitation) stumbled on a little thing called StitchFix, I got really excited about it. It didn’t take long for me to sign up, get accepted and schedule my first delivery (called a “fix”). And it’s not just because I hate shopping for myself—cause I really do. It was more of a chance to have fun with shopping. When I lived in Ohio, I’d “shop” my sister’s closet and accessories and wonder why I don’t have more fun with what I wear. The sad truth is that I have an overwhelming amount of grey in my wardrobe and don’t even get me started on the same Target pocket tee I have in every color they make. And as you may remember, my go-to is to add a scarf to everything. StitchFix seemed like a chance for me to do one better. The premise: I fill out a style profile and someone else picks out something on-trend just for me and I get a little “care package” (if you will) of goodies. It’s like a present (that I pay for). I can either keep it all, just a few items or send it all back. I can schedule these fixes as often as my paycheck allows and they can even gear the fixes toward special occasions if I tell them. Listen, I know that I’m sounding sales-y here but I think it’s a brilliant idea! Here are my top three reasons why: 1. I’d rather try on clothes in the comfort of my own home; 2. I like getting packages; 3. it’s too easy for me to screw up.
I got my first fix on Saturday and what was inside was exactly my style. Friends, if you want to check this out, let’s both get credit—shall we? http://stitchfix.com/sign_up?referrer_id=3109266
