I think I’m in love

A couple of my friends had been prattling on about Stitch Fix* for some time and I’d listen, look at their pictures, look at the site, ignore it, look at the site again, ignore it and then finally I bit the bullet in a moment of total frustration with my clothes and signed up for a shipment. Why not? What was there to lose? I thought. My first fix came this Wednesday and I think I’m still glowing. I’m seriously sitting straighter in my chair today because the new dress I’m wearing deserves it. I’ll spare you the details on how it works, because it’s explained on the site, and if you have questions, you can feel free to ask me, but I just want to ask, WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG?!?! This. Is. Amazing. Yes, I wish the clothes were made here, stateside. But pretty much nothing I buy clothes-wise is, so nothing has changed on that point. And yes, it’s not supporting the local economy, but I wasn’t doing that with my wardrobe-buying either. So essentially I already was an immoral clothes shopper before Stitch Fix. An immoral clothes shopper who was unhappy with her clothes. And now!? Well, basically, this may be the best thing that has ever happened to me and my wardrobe. Except for maybe that awesome prom dress I rented in 1993. But that doesn’t count, does it? because it was rented. So it never really was part of my wardrobe. So there you have it. I rest my case. Stitch Fix for president of wardrobes across the land!

PS – I think Aaron is going to try Trunk Club!

*Full disclosure: that link is my referral link, so I get $25 towards my next fix if you sign up through it. I’ll buy you a drink if you go this route. And we can talk about our clothes. Or whatever you want. Or our clothes.

    What a cool idea. I went to their site and I can see what a huge help something like this would be for a busy working person. I particularly love the fact that they choose clothes that match your price requirements. While I love buying clothes, I hate going to malls. They’re just so over-whelming with so much stuff. I do almost all my shopping using catalogs which is leisurely but also probably more costly. What a brilliant idea. I am delighted you finally tried it.

    Exactly! And the element of surprise is fun. Plus, being able to send things back for free helps. I know that more and more online vendors do that, too, but sometimes I think I’m more reluctant to do that when I’ve actually picked it out. I think I often make more of an effort to try to ‘make it work.’ And then it just doesn’t. I’m hoping I don’t feel that compulsion here. It has also already led me to try/buy things I never would have were I left to my own devices!

    Terrific idea. Plus, I confess to liking subscription boxes!
