Getting My Fix6
September 9, 2013 by CJ
The other day there was a knock at my door that brought squeals and jumps of joy from me. I received my first Stitch Fix. What is a Stitch Fix? It’s a styling service. You log onto their site, complete a semi detailed form about your size and style and schedule a singe or monthly box. It costs $20 for a styling fee. If you purchase something from the box, the $20 is credited toward the purchase. If you decide to keep everything you get a 25% discount. They provide a postage paid bag for anything you do not want to keep. You have 3 days from the date you receive you fix to go through your items, try them on and send them back. If you are like me and find shopping for yourself draining and tiresome, this is for you.
Let’s get into what was in the box.
I actually have a similar necklace but in a mint color. I would have kept this, but it was awfully short. It fit more like a choker on me. Maybe I have a big neck…
Loved this, in the box. But it just didn’t do it for me when I tried it on. Wasn’t in love.
Another top I loved in the box and this time on! It was a little more form-fitting than what I’d pick for myself, but decided to step out of my comfort zone and keep this one.
Now this dress is definitely something I would have picked out. The hanger doesn’t do it justice. But once on, it was entirely too short. Form fitting, mid-thigh, is too much out of my comfort zone for me to make that leap.
I like this blazer, but it didn’t look right on me. My other stylist, through Keaton Row, had a blazer in my lookbook that I prefer over this one.
Each item included a little card attached with styling notes. Love this! I love the versatility of this top!
Of all the things sent to me, I kept one thing. Some may see this as a bad thing, but I don’t. I understand the more fixes I get the more my stylists will get to know and understand my style and likes and dislikes. Actually, I think they got my style exactly, it’s more of getting the fit just right. I signed up for monthly fixes and I am already looking forward to next month. You may be wondering if my feelings about Keaton Row have changed, after getting my first fix. I still love Keaton Row. As a matter of fact, after I received my fix, I contacted my Keaton Row stylist, Samantha Peterson and requested a fall lookbook. While Stitch Fix provides a few surprise items monthly, Keaton Row offers an entire seasonal wardrobe, or special event outfit. I love both services and will continue to use both. In my opinion, they compliment each other.
Have you tried Stitch Fix or Keaton Row? Preference?

I am not sure I would want to try something like this one I am quite awkward to get clothes to fit even when not carry the extra weight I have at the minute so lots of trying on different sizes can be required but I did find a make up/beauty box here in the UK GlossyBox and have signed up so fingers crossed will let you know how it goes
I’ve heard good things about Glossy Box, but I can’t afford to add another one. 😉 Definitely let me know what you think of Glossy Box. Now, when it comes to how I fit clothes, I was worried since I’m not a tiny girl. I’m hoping with each fix, I’ll have more options that fit me better. That’ll be the key in me continuing with this subscription service.
That’s an interesting concept! I have never tried it but who knows 🙂
If you decide to try it, let me know your thoughts. I know I don’t find the joy in shopping like I did when I was younger and this makes adding a new item so much easier.
Agreed! I wish I could design my own clothes …
[…] not love anything in your box. Since this was the first time this has happened (my other fixes- 1 and 2), I am not thinking about cancelling my subscription. I did adjust it, so I will not be […]
