If you have been around Simply Clarke a while, you have probably heard of Stitch Fix. However, if your new, or this is your first time visiting, let me introduce you. Stitch Fix is an amazing company that delivers a personalized shopping experience to your front door. To sign up, you go to the Stitch Fix website, fill out a style profile and then decide on a delivery date. You then pay a $20 styling fee, which will be applied as credit toward anything you keep from your shipment. Stitch Fix will send you 5 items of clothing, shoes, or accessories (you can specify what you are wanting and the price range). Once you receive your shipment, you can try everything on in the comfort of your home, decide what you are going to keep and mail the rest back in a pre-paid envelope. It is super easy and a fun way to shop!
I’m an avid “Stitch Fixer”… Is that at thing? Well, I am. I am addicted to getting Stitch Fixes boxes delivered to my doorstep. Over the past three years of receiving fixes, I have learned a few things about how to get a great fix that is perfect for your unique style. I would love to share my secret tips for your best stitch fix yet with you!
Create or Update Your Profile
The first step to sign up for a Stitch Fix is to create an account and fill out your profile. I highly suggest takign your time on filling out your profile, answering all of the questions and being as detailed as possible. Also, many people fill out their profile on day one and forget to go back and update their profile. My advice would be to go back and update your profile each time before your schedule a fix. It only takes a few minutes to scan through your profile and see any changes that might need to be made. Most likely, you style will change from time to time based on your mood, or you size will change, or you might like different trends for different seasons. Its important to note these things in your profile.
Create A Pinterest Board
This is probably the most important thing I could tell you to do to get your best stitch fix yet. Make sure to create a Stitch Fix specific Pinterest board. You should be mindful of what you are pinning to this board. I make sure that each item I pin is for the current season, is of colors I love, and most importantly, styles that I will actually wear and are good for my body type.
Communicate On Your Pinterest Board
Again, your Pinterest board is key. I always leave notes for my stylist on my pins. I tell her if I like a certain print, or style of jeans. I let her know if I really want to see a particular item in my fix, or a color that I am loving right now. This really helps her get to know my style.
Leave A Note
Another great way to get a fix you love is to communicate directly with your stylist. The only way to do this right now is to leave a note for them when you are scheduling your fix. Be as specific as possible in this note. I always let my stylist know if I am looking for tops only, or if I am really looking for a dress for an occasion. I also let my stylist know if I am wanting a specific item. For example, I might say, “Please send tops ONLYL for this fix. I am wanting no long sleeves or 3/4 length sleeves. I am also looking for a fun date night top. If you see a pair of light denim, destroyed jeans, I would love to try a pair of those as well. Also, I love the Dawney Scallop Trim Blouse I have been seeing around Pinterest, if you could snag that I would LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Thank you!”
Once you receive your fix, you are given the option to leave feedback with your purchase. Be sure to leave as much feedback as possible and be specific. Let your stylist know why you decided to buy a certain top over another. Let them know how each item fit, and your preferences. This is key for future fixes.
Request The Same Stylist
This is something that took me a little while to realize. You can request to have the same stylist each time. This is important because it really allows them to get to know you and your style. I normally request my stylist in the note section. I just type “Please have ____ style my fix”. It might take you a little bit to find the perfect fit, but once you do, they will start to nail your style each time.
I hope this helps you get your best stitch fix yet!
