There are two things that I have little patience for, slow drivers in the left lane and clothes shopping. I think it has something to do with my self-diagnosed obsessive-compulsive disorder, but I cannot shop at stores that do not have clothes in a logical order. I like to go down clean aisles, looking for something to catch my eye. If there are piles of unfolded clothes, jam-packed racks, or even racks with mismatched clothing items, I will leave the store.
However, it has come to the time where I need to update my wardrobe. I’m the type of person that uses something until I literally cannot use it anymore; clothes, shoes, purses, you name it. I am still wearing clothes that I wore when I was in high school, almost eight years ago. And you may say, “at least you can wear your clothes from high school.” And to that, I will say that you can visibly tell they have been worn for eight years.
So I decided to start saving up and buying more adult appropriate clothing. The first problem I ran into was finding new clothing stores. While I love H&M and Forever21, I have been blessed to purchase more quality (and pricier) clothing now. After taking to Facebook for advice, I was ready to try some new stores. But shopping at stores like Marshalls, made me feel overwhelmed with their clothing selection and displays.
Frustrated with shopping at brick and mortar stores, I decided to shop for clothes online. Unfortunately, with this route (especially if you haven’t bought anything from them before), it can be difficult finding the right size for you. Although most online stores allow returns and exchanges, I realized the true underlining problem in my clothing dilemma was not the stores themselves. The true problem is that I don’t know the type of clothes I should buy. Researching online, I became aware that everyone had a style personality. And until I found my style personality, I would just buy clothes that would not compliment each other.
Enter Stitch Fix. Stitch Fix does all of the work for you. All you have to do is tell them your favorite clothing styles and budget, and they will do the rest. There is a $20 styling fee per “fix,” but that is applied to any of the clothing you decide to buy. Stitch Fix sends you five pieces at a time; you can try them on in the comfort of your home, then return any items you do not like within 3 days. The company is very customer-friendly and wants to ensure that you are happy with the items. My first “fix” I was not happy with the prices nor the selections, and they waived the $20 fee if I tried them again. I did, and here is what they sent me. Another thing I liked about Stitch Fix, is that they give you multiple outfit suggestions for the pieces they picked out for you.
Of course I couldn’t help but having a impromptu photoshoot while trying on the clothes. My second “fix” appealed more to my style and wallet, but I will send two items back that I didn’t absolutely love. I’m excited to wear the black halter for a GNO (Girls Night Out) or date. The white halter, I can see myself wearing to brunch this summer. The blue jeans will probably be my go-to pants from now on. Blue jeans were on my most wanted list, and the jeans (in top photos) fit all of the curves of my body perfectly. After I save up more, I will order another “fix” to continue updating my wardrobe.
