    My credit card was filled out by my husband who only put in our shared last name, but I am a hyphenated last name! How can I tell my stylist where to look for my Pinterest account?

    I’m new….waiting on my first shipment due Feb 11th…. I created a board on Pinterest. How do I make sure my stylist sees it? Thank you!

    I prefer to keep my pint eat boards ‘secret’. I know it’s possible to share a board by collaborating with another person via email. Is there an email I can enter to collaborate with my attest while still keeping my board ‘secret’? Or do I have to make a public board?

    how do I know I set my Pinterest Style Board up correctly and my stylist will find or get it..

  7. Jessica 2 years ago

    I have a public style board that’s shared, but I was hoping to start a private board where I could post pictures of myself in the clothes that were sent to help the stylist see how things fit. The reason I don’t want it to be public is that I don’t really want friends and co-workers to see pictures of myself in my bathroom trying on ill-fitting clothes and taking selfies, haha. Pinterest does allow private boards to be shared with an email address / pinterest account. Seems like it wouldn’t be that hard to have the stylists keep a shared account for that purpose?

    Where do I add the caption to describe what I like about my pin in Pinterest? Is it in the ‘description’ section?

    1. Stitch Fix 2 years ago

      Yes, that’s correct!

      As long as you share the link then yes!

    I already have a pinterest board named “outfits” that I’ve been pinning to for a good while. How do I get this to my stylist?

    1. Stitch Fix 2 years ago

      Hi Shawn, All you have to do is copy & paste the link in the field at the end of your Style Profile. You’re Stylist will then be able to see your outfits board.

    I can’t figure out how to get the URL for my stitch fix board to show up. Where do I find this? I’m using the Pinterest app for iPad.

    Hey there hopefully I’m doing this right but here is the link to my stitch fix board

    Some of the comments are copied from the previous person. It took me a few tries to realize I could change them lol

    1. Stitch Fix 2 years ago

      HI there, you can put it in the bottom of your Style Profile. There is a field just for your Pinterest board link.

  17. Pam Cox 2 years ago

    Thanks for my recent Stitch Fix… My stylist did an excellent job. Here is my pinterest board…
    Again thank you. Looking forward to my next “Fix”

    I would really like the tonal skirt and sweater look just listed. I really want to have over size sweaters and cowl necks for the fall. Melissa Smith

    I love fall clothes and being in a wheelchair wearing loose sweaters/cardigans and cute skirts, long skirts, leggings, the right fitted jean would be really nice that are easy to put together would be so nice.

      Hi there, if your Pinterest board is public, your Stylist will be able to see your pins!

  23. Tee 2 years ago

    For the Stitch Fix customers who would like to keep their pinterest board private … could a screen shot of the board be sent to the stylist or attached to an email somehow?

    1. Stitch Fix 2 years ago

      Hi there, the best way to share a board with your Stylist is to create it under a fake name. Unfortunately you can’t share a screenshot or any other image with your Stylist at this point.

    I already have a board title “My Style” that I included with my Profile. Do I need to start a new board named “Stitch Fix” or can I just update that board with new pins and new captions on old pins?

    1. Stitch Fix 2 years ago

      That is fine! Your Stylist will be able to figure that out 🙂 Just make sure you’re always updating and evolving your board!

  28. Elyse 2 years ago

    Stitch Fix really can’t do anything about Pinterest’s policies. They are two different websites run by different people. Stitch Fix staff can’t make Pinterest’s private board policy change, even if they wanted to. They’re not ignoring your suggestions– they just literally cannot do anything about it. Pinterest is just a convenient tool they can use to gauge your style, if you let them. Why not send your secret invite suggestion to Pinterest, as it is indeed a good suggestion!

    In the mean time, to work around this– sign up for a separate Pinterest account without your name on it and don’t post pics of yourself. Just pin pics of clothes you like. Link to that board for your stylist, instead of the board that’s just for you.

  29. gabrielle2258 2 years ago

    I’m on a tight budget currently as my due date approaches. What’s the average price of an item?

  30. Angela 2 years ago

    I don’t really understand the need for privacy on a Stitchfix Pinterest board. Aren’t you just posting clothing from retail websites and other outfits that you find on Pinterest? I don’t have any pictures of myself on my Stitchfix Pinterest board. I just post outfits that I see and like, styles that I am interest in trying and they are all on models or other people. No pictures of me. And both my stylists have used these pictures very effectively, even sending the exact items I pinned. I am delighted with the ability to give direction so that they can better visualize my style. Not me.

  31. Karen 2 years ago

    I posted a comment yesterday but it wasn’t included. I wonder why, it was just about the privacy issue with Pinterest and I expressed my own opinion.

    1. Stitch Fix 2 years ago

      Hi there, your comment was posted today. Stitch Fix tries to moderate blog comments daily, but on weekends, we might take a bit longer to respond! Your Pinterest board is able to be viewed by anyone on Pinterest unless you make it private. If you make it private, your Stylist won’t be able to see it either. It’s definitely up to the user to decide what they are comfortable sharing. Let me know if you have any other questions.

  32. Karen Rasmussen 2 years ago

    I’m not an accomplished Pinterest user but have recently set one up for Stitch Fix and provided it on my Stitch Fix profile, as directed. Wouldn’t that board be only available to be viewed by Stitch Fix personnel? I ask because I honestly don’t understand the privacy need when you are pinning clothing that probably all the other Stitch Fix subscribers are like and are pinning too. Goodness, it’s not like you are pinning lingerie or something very personal!!

  33. Beth Good 2 years ago

    My workaround for the public-private pinterest board conundrum was to make a public pinterest board under an alias. Just a tip for you ladies who like to keep their personal photos and interest in fashion private 🙂

    1. Stitch Fix 2 years ago

      This is such a good idea!! Tell everyone!

  34. Sherri W. 2 years ago

    Whoops. I’d created a Stitchfix Pinterest board last month after a year of receiving fixes, and in the fix I received yesterday my stylist didn’t reference it in her note. So I just found out by reading these comments that you cannot see a secret/private board…. Too bad. I don’t want my board to be public, so I guess it’s of no use to anyone. Chalk me up as another faithful customer who is asking that you somehow access our private boards when we invite you…. (Maybe this is a Pinterest limitation, and there is nothing Stichfix can do about it?)

    1. Stitch Fix 2 years ago

      HI there, unfortunately at this time, you can’t share a private board with our Stylists. That would require you to invite them individually using their personal account. At this point, we have not been able to integrate our systems with Pinterest, but this is definitely something that could happen in the future with the help of (a lot) of engineering work! Trust us, it’s on our radar! May I ask if there’s any reason in particular that you want to keep your style board secret?

    2. Julie 2 years ago

      This is because Pinterest is respecting your choice for a secret board, there is nothing Stitch a Fix can do about this. I’d love to know why so many keep secret clothing boards! What is the big secret?

  35. anat 2 years ago

    Same here – I have a secret board that I’m happy to share with you but do not want to make it public. Would be great to have that option!

    1. Stitch Fix 2 years ago

      HI there, I’m sorry that we can’t see private boards. Unfortunately at this time, the only way to share looks with your Stylist is through public Pinterest boards. Is there any way you can work around this? Perhaps there will be a new way to share style with your Stylist in the future… 🙂

      Not yet! But we hope to do something like this in the future.

  39. Leigh 2 years ago

    I agree. Stitch Fix needs to find a way to privately share boards.

    1. Julie 2 years ago

      I do not understand why so many of you require your pinterest boards to be secret. What is the big deal? This is not a Stitch Fix problem…it is not a Pinterest problem either…if you choose to keep your boards secret, that’s what they will be! You guys can’t blame SF because you choose to keep secret boards

    2. Michelle 2 years ago

      Nobody is blaming Stitch Fix. Some people are just more private than others. Everyone has their own “comfort zone”. Individuals have their own personal preferences. To each their own!They are just suggesting it as an option. If it doesn’t happen, it doesn’t happen. 🙂

  40. Christi 2 years ago

    I’m having the same issue. My stitch fix style idea board is secret, I strongly prefer to keep it that way. Is there any way around this? I’m a little bummed because after my first fix I emailed stitch fix to confirm that my link to my pinterest board was received to my profile and I got a “yes” reply. I’m finding out 2 fixes later that the stylist hasn’t had the ability to see them. Thanks for your input!

    1. Stitch Fix 2 years ago

      Unfortunately it’s not possible at this time! Is there anyway you can make it public? Maybe you can label it something secret and share that in your profile! 🙂

  41. Reagan 2 years ago

    Same issue – I don’t want to make my board public but would like to share it with my stylist. Can i just invite to the board?

    1. Stitch Fix 2 years ago

      Hi there, unfortunately no, that is our customer service email address. In order for your Stylist to see your board, you must make them public.

  42. Michelle 2 years ago

    Is there a way to “invite” my stylist to my Pinterest board? I keep all my Pinterest boards private (secret

    1. Stitch Fix 2 years ago

      Unfortunately not. Can you make your Stitch Fix board public?

  43. Adel 2 years ago

    You can post pictures of yourself on your board with your head cut off. I do this so my stylist can see my body in the clothes but it maintains my privacy as I don’t use my name on my board. (I don’t want random pictures of me “out there” either!

  44. Karen 2 years ago

    How do I provide a link that I’m sure goes directly to my style board?

    1. Stitch Fix 2 years ago

      Make sure that you add it into the notes at the end of your style profile!

    Secret board for me as well; just don’t do a public board. I emailed my picture so my stylist could see me, but sounds like that isn’t an option.

  47. Mel 2 years ago

    I also would use a secret board, but not a public board. Just letting you know! Thanks!

  48. Dawn 2 years ago

    I’d love to figure out a way to use the secret boards to share how I look in the clothes without having to share it with everyone!!! Maybe in the future it will be an option.

  49. angie verbonitz 2 years ago

    I can’t figure out to get my board link from either my browser or my pinterest app because it doesn’t appear! I’m using a Samsung galaxy s5.

    1. Sonja Westhassel 2 years ago

      Tap once in the address bar (mine showed the same way on my iPad). Once the details show up – which they should – then I think you should be able to hold your finger on the address so that the option to copy comes up. Once you’ve copied, then paste the address in the Style section. Tapping on the address bar of your Pinterest is what will make all the details appear.

      Hope this works for you. 🙂

      You can keep the name you have on there–that’s fine! Just make sure that the link you provided goes directly to your style board!

      Hi Nancy! Your stylist will likely not be able to access a secret board unfortunately. If you just want to pin your style inspiration, that is fine! XOXO

    Being new to Pinterest I didn’t know if it was appropriate, but I included on my style board some photos of myself wearing some favorite outfits. My Stitch Fix stylist told me the board was helpful when she put together my first fix, and thanked me for including photos of myself. She definitely got the right idea, I loved everything she sent (small matter of fit on 2 pieces, but we’ll work that out)!
