Is Stitch Fix Kids Worth It?
I’ve seen Stitch Fix ads and Stitch Fix Kids ads for a while but never tried them out, until recently. It’s become increasingly difficult to find the kids clothes in stores, especially during Covid. This led me to try Stitch Fix Kids. I needed something that wasn’t going to be stressful, didn’t involve me going to ten different stores, and would be something the kids liked.
Stitch Fix Kids Sign Up
The sign-up process is very straightforward. You tell your kids names, ages, and size. They also ask about current brands that you buy and what sizes you buy in those brands. There’s a $20 stylist fee which goes towards your purchase if you decided to buy.
There are also various clothing pieces that come up so you (or your child) can select if it’s something they would be interested in. I’ll admit I was very nervous the first time trying this.
How Stitch Fix Works
You pay $20 per “fix” for the stylist to create your box, it took about a week to get the fix. When you receive it you can pick and choose what you want to keep. I’ll be honest, had I tried to budget this and say no to some pieces the kids probably would have been a little upset since the clothes were already in the house. If you buy all of the clothes, your $20 goes towards the purchase and you get an additional discount. This makes buying the full box very enticing.
Did The Kids Like Their Stitch Fix?
That’s a big YES. They were so excited; I didn’t have to fight them to try anything on and they really did love all the pieces. I was also amazed at how well everything fit. When you are setting up your fix, they will ask you about other brands you buy and what sizes you buy in those brands. This apparently, is very helpful because everything we got fit great.
The kids also loved that the stylist wrote them a little note and shared what pieces went together and why they paired them that way as well as how to mix and match. You can choose to keep your stylist or switch to a new one for your next box and they both chose to keep theirs.
Mom’s Thoughts on Stitch Fix
I was not sure at first, but between the lack of inventory I can find in stores, and the concern of having to be in and out of places this was so much easier. Plus, the clothes were really cute, and I didn’t have to convince them of the outfits. It really made the entire process so much easier. I will say I probably spend more at one time then I might if I went shopping in a store, but they are also getting more than what I’d be able to find in one store.
I looked up some of the pieces online because some of the brands I wasn’t familiar with, and they were cheaper through Stitch Fix than if I had found them online so that was kind of nice as well. Plus, if there is a style your child really likes you can purchase additional through the Stitch Fix app.
Does anyone else have trouble finding cute kid’s clothes, especially after your child hits like 8? Where do you shop?
