Piper (aka Lil’Mayhem) has been wanting to up her wardrobe game, and since I barely know how to dress myself, and I know a teenager does not want clothing advice from her mom (no matter how wise and awe-inspiring it may be), I set her up with a Stitch Fix.
If you don’t know, Stitch Fix is a subscription styling service, that, for a reasonable fee, sends you items based on a profile you create. If you choose to purchase an item, the styling fee ($20) is credited towards your balance. You can also get a $25 credit if you use someone’s referral link when you first set up your account. Here is my link if you have any interest in trying this for your daughter or yourself. https://www.stitchfix.com/referral/12153084?sod=w&som=c
Once you click through the link, you will set up an account and build a profile by answering questions about your style preferences. You can also create a Pinterest board with samples of what you like, if you are into that sort of thing. Based on her profile, which indicated she liked casual, boho inspired clothing, this is one of the outfits they sent.
Isn’t my little Gen Z hippie cute? The top is called the Peasley Cold Shoulder Cotton Top (Collective Concepts), the necklace is the Knox Chain Lariat (Berry Jewelry) and the Margery Printed Wide Leg Pant (Boom Boom Jeans). Despite the pants being comically long, these items look perfect together, kudos to Kathryn the stylist who put the look together.
She also received this adorable summer dress called the Joseline Knit Dress by Nine Britton. The fabric is really soft and heavy enough that the dress has a quality feel to it. Saving the best for last, she also got this Callie Denim Jacket by Kut from Kloth. The sleeves are a little long, but otherwise is looks fantastic on her.
As you can see, the total price before discounts is $252.00 which is a lot more than I would ever spend in one shopping trip. Once you apply discounts, the price drops to $144, which is $28 per item, that’s a little more reasonable. But those pants were a non-starter with her, so we’re not getting the 25% discount for buying everything. Decision Time.
Here’s what she did, she kept the blue top which was her favorite piece. She also kept the dress because it was cute and reasonably priced. I talked her into keeping the jacket, it looks so good on her and she has already worn it at least 10 times. And, finally I bought the necklace because it is perfect and I love it. So bonus incentive to the Moms out there, if you do this for your daughter, you may also find something you love in that box.
You can see she got $25 credit for using my referral link https://www.stitchfix.com/referral/12153084 which you are welcome to click through and use as well. If you are going to give Stitch Fix a try you may as well start off with $25 in the bank. Once you schedule your first Fix you will get a referral code that you can share, and each time a person uses it, you get a $25 credit, pretty cool, eh?
In the end, we had a really good experience with our mother daughter Stitch Fix and would highly recommend you try it at least once to see if it is right for you. Let me know how it goes in the comments.
