Stitch Fix #1
Stitch Fix is a different kind of service than Gwynnie Bee. You fill out a style profile where you tell them your height, weight, sizes; you see pictures of clothes and you tell them if you like them or not; you can link to your social networks; and you can write up a brief narrative.
I basically told them that I love the boho style and colors (not tan, black...)
Then you schedule a "fix" (which costs $20) and some style fairy goes out into the world and collects things for you.
My first fix from them totally sucked. I hated every piece. I didn't take pictures of me in the pieces because it really wasn't worth it. I got:
- A preppy swingy skirt in navy polka dots. I love polka dots, but it was a preppy nautical style which isn't my thing. And, the huge skirt was not at all flattering. Note to self: get straight or slight a-line skirts.
- A dress which buttoned all the way down. I specifically told them that things that button all the way down are not flattering on me, and unfortunately, this dress proved me right.
- 3 tops all in boring neutrals. 2 with super wide dolman sleeves which made me feel like flapping my wings.
Horrible horrible horrible. I sent everything back with detailed comments about why each piece didn't work for me.
I didn't hear anything back.
So, I followed up with an email, and then I received a nice response from Jenni (one of the style fairies) who offered to credit my $20 towards my next fix and she would be my next stylist. I took her up on her offer.
Stay tuned for Stitch Fix #2...
