Stitch Fix Cheat

Did you know you can cheat a bit on Stitch Fix and see your items before you receive them? This may seem like a spoiler for some people but for me, it's a little taste I need to get me through until my box actually arrives. It's kind of like people who find out the gender of their baby vs. those that don't. You won't know exactly what your items look like but you will have a significant hint. Here's how it works,

First, you can only do this after your box has shipped.  While this doesn't seem like a lot in terms, Stitch Fix uses Fed Ex so it takes much longer to arrive after it ships.  You will get a lovely little shipping notice in your email. Click it to go to the main Stitch Fix page. It will look like this...

 Next click on that tiny thing that says "checkout". Don't panic you are not really buying anything.  This take you to the screen where all your items are listed and ready for you to review.  Now, clearly you are not going to review the clothes so you don't need to click anything.  Just take note of the names of the clothing items...

From here we rely on good old Google or Pinterest.  Take the name of the item and copy it exactly.  Paste it into a search browser.  Typically you will find links to other Stitch Fix reviews where other people received the same item.  Now here is the catch- you have NO idea what color or pattern your item will be.  It is typically for Stitch Fix to carry an item in multiple colors and patterns.  Out of your 5 items, there may also be one or two that you just can't find when you search.  Either it's a new item to Stitch Fix or simply no one has done a review on it.  So there you go.  It's a bit of a cheat however it doesn't tell you everything.  The other important thing to remember is not to judge what you are going to get just by using this cheat.  You never know how the item is going to feel or look on you.  It is super important to try on every item you get in your Stitch Fix box.  After all, you are paying for a stylist. May as well give her the benefit of the doubt.  You will always be surprised by items you were convinced you wouldn't like.

If you are considering signing up for Stitch Fix I would really appreciate it if you would us this link.  I am in no way paid by Stitch Fix but I do get money towards my clothes when you sign up to receive yours.

Let me know if you have any comments or other suggestions.  Got any more Stitch Fix tips??
