I heard about Stichfix a few months ago and I finally decided to sign up over the holidays. A recently launched San Francisco company, Stitchfix is a monthly styling service delivered right to your doorstep. After filling out a style and fit survey, the stylists pick out a selection of five items they think you'll like. There's no monthly subscription and you don't get charged until you decide you want to keep one (or three or five) of the items in your package. Check out their FAQ for the deets. 

 My first package arrived this week and I decided to keep two of the items, the Jack by BB Dakota jacket above and the Aryn K velvet zigzag dress below. As soon as I put on the comfy jacket I didn't want to take it off. It will be perfect for traveling in style or running errands around town. I'll wear the dress with tights and a sweater or blazer for winter and pair it with a brightly colored belt for spring. I found it really helpful that Stitchfix gives you styling ideas and photos with each item. 

One of my favorite things about the whole experience was posting photos to Instagram and getting feedback from my friends about what I should keep. I really recommend Stitchfix for ladies who want help styling their clothes and need a little nudge to get out of the comfort zone. If you happen to sign up, tell the gals at Stitchfix that I sent you and they'll take good care of you. 

I loved the colors (navy and teal) and print of this dress but it was a little too tight. 

The gathers were flattering, but it was too short.  

Cute necklace but I not something I really need. 


  1. This is a good idea but it competes with my business.  Ultimately, you will get what you pay for. I would rather pay for expert advice and get it right the first time.  This sounds like fun though.

  2. Cool! I haven't heard of this. I'm totally checking it out. The jacket was a really good piece. Ill let you know if I try it :)


  3. Are there different brands you can pick from generally? Sounds like a cool concept, mail order closet.
