I know what you’re thinking. Why would a personal style blogger, who styles herself daily for photos, need a stylist? I’ll take that question and raise you one!
I do think I have a good sense for my style. I adore off-the-shoulder cuts, feminine details, and lots of color! The problem I tend to run into, as I mentioned here, is that it is sometimes hard to find good pieces that will work with my wardrobe due to my weight and body shape (apple-ish?) I have always been in that awkward lane between “too chunky for straight sizes”, but “not quite chunky enough for all plus size cuts” (they tend to fit in the middle, but drown me in the arm/shoulders, and hip area). As such, it is easy to stick to tried and true stores, cuts, and styles. Sometimes, even a Socialite needs help breaking out of a style rut. Enter Stitch Fix!
I first heard about Stitch Fix through a TV Commercial, and I was intrigued. It was only upon seeing an ad on Instagram that I decided to click and Learn More. I am so glad that I did! My impressions of Stitch Fix have been highly positive!
You can sign up for Stitch Fix multiple ways:
You can go online to www.stitchfix.com, and you will be prompted to create an account, OR login through your Facebook page, as shown here:
OR you can download the Stitch Fix app for your smartphone, which is what I used to request my Fix!
♦️Once you have created an account, and logged in, you will then take a Style Quiz. And HERE is where I fell in love. Y’all this quiz is sooo detailed that if they can’t nail your personal style, no one can! They start by asking general questions about your height and weight, but then they get real detailed: you’ll answer questions about your body type (apple, pear, rectangle, etc.); waist level (high, medium, low); and what level of comfort you have with baring certain body parts (arms, back, etc.). All of these questions help Stitch Fix build your Style Profile.
♦️Once you’ve answered questions about your body and style, you will then be presented examples of outfits that you can rank according to your style preferences! I’ve provided an example from my style quiz below!
♦️When you’ve completed all of your Style Profile Questions, you’ll be assigned your very own Personal Stylist through Stitch Fix, who will curate a Fix, or outfit pairing, based on your Style Quiz preferences. You are also encouraged to provide your Stylist with your social media accounts or personal websites (this is not required), so that your Stylist can get an idea of how you look, your overall body proportions, and your current style. I think this is a really great feature!
♦️ If you choose to Schedule a Fix, over the next few days, your Stitch Fix Stylist will choose 5 hand-selected pieces of clothing and deliver them straight to your door via courier!
♦️ Once your package arrives, tear into it with bated breath (I know I did! 😉) and revel in how perfectly your Stitch Fix Stylist assessed your personal style, and chose items that you are sure to love!!!!
