Happy Hump Day!
Quick weekend recap – Colin and I rented a shore house down the jersey shore with a few of our friends. I’ll do a few posts on the Jersey Shore one day, but it was so much fun and I talked my boss into working from the shore on Monday – except I really did work A TON and didn’t even get to the beach until 4 PM. Womp.
Anyway, I have been seeing a bunch of stuff for Stitch Fix in blog land and I have been a quiet member for quite some time so I figured I’d help someone out that is toying with the idea.
1. Some basic facts: It is a $2o monthly styling fee that means you pay this if you do or do not buy anything. The 20 dollars can be put towards your purchase.
2. The average price of items is between 30-80 dollars – with your styling fee discount it is between 10-70 dollars.
3. You can chose your frequency to be 3 weeks, monthly, every 2 months etc.
4. You can tell them if you have a special event and they will send you things that cater to that.
My personal experience has been great. I truly look forward to the package that comes every month, but that could because I am a child and just love any mail that isn’t asking me for money. I limit myself to ONE item per month, which means that I am spending around 50 dollars for my item between the styling fee and discounted cost. I also would LOVE to get more than one item a month since I usually adore most of my box, but then I would be spending about 300 dollars in clothes a month.
Although it is a little pricey, I find that I do not go shopping NEARLY as much anymore. I am never craving that new clothes feel that I usually do. Recently, I ended up cancelling my subscription by accident since my credit card expired and I missed it almost immediately. I found myself shopping at lunch breaks and spending way more than the 50 dollars that I usually did a month so I signed right back up and will get my next one soon! I will try and get better at posting what I buy, but this one is one of my favorites that I wear all the time. The sweater was about 30 dollars after my discount.
Please let me know if you have any questions about this!
Does anyone else use this? What are your thoughts?
