Does online shopping for clothes stress you out?
Oh, friend, you are NOT alone!
But there's great news:here are now companies devoted to doing it for you!
Mmhmm, it's true!
And we asked Rachel Martino (i.e. @rachmartino), the NYC-based fashion blogger behind RachMartino.com — who boasts a whopping 304,000 followers on Instagram — to put one to the test.
For us, she tried out Stitch Fix.
Stitch Fix is a online styling service that will pick out clothing and accessories for you for a flat styling fee. All you have to do is fill out their personal style quiz, and in exchange, they'll send you five pieces to test out — which you can either keep or return. You only pay for what you keep, and shipping is free in both directions.
But did it actually work?
"The quiz that I took for Stitch Fix was very long, very thorough — maybe even a little bit long — but I think for women who kind of don't know what they're looking for, it would be great," Rachel says. "It asks you — I mean, you could see, it asked me about my arm length!"
"There were so many questions about style, fit, and I really think that could help guide women who are confused or don't know what they're looking for," she adds.
As for the actually styles, as promised, Stitch Fix sent her five: a swingy striped cardigan, a red dress with a keyhole cutout in the back, a cold-shoulder floral top, checked pants, and distressed skinny jeans.
And while Rachel rocked all the pieces, only two of the three styles spoke to her — the dress and the jeans.

But that said, "I think that they did get a sense of my overall style," she says. "Some of the things I didn't like as much as others, but I think that it really would get great results for a lot of women."
Plus, the fashion blogger notes, you're able to rate your picks, so the service learns more about your style -- and thus theoretically improves -- the more you use it.
