So, if you’ve been following me in the blog world since 2011… you’ll know that I once had a self diagnosed shopping addiction. An addiction I punched square in the face when I swore off shopping for a year [nailed it]. But, here in 2014, I almost never shop (unless it’s for baby girl clothes because tiny ponchos, small Frye boots, and overalls are actual things you can purchase for baby girls… it’s out of control. I may not be shopping practical for my daughter, but the point is… holy cute tiny human clothes). A couple of months ago, I stumbled across a little something called Stitch Fix, and I said to myself, “Self, this is like shopping without leaving your house – no packing up the baby, no changing out of your sweatpants – clothes delivered to your door without purchasing until you try them on in your own bedroom.” Here’s how it works:
I figured I’d try it out. I actually had a lot of fun filling out the style profile, and I received my first stitch fix in March. I’m not going to lie to you, it’s not posted here because it was not awesome. Partially because they sent me boring winter clothes and partially because I overestimated my size. The fact that the clothes were too big, however, was a welcome realization that I had returned to my pre-pregnancy size (mostly). I sent all but two items back, purchased them online, and revamped my style profile…
Today, I received Stitch Fix #2 – I took advantage of spring break and nap time to take pictures of my items today (sans accessories, and obviously without brushing my hair). The fact that I actually used to do this outfit picture taking thing daily blows my mind. Anyway, without further adieu – here’s a little glimpse into my Stitch Fix…
(MJ likes the styling suggestions best of all)
JOSEFINA LAYERED MINI STONES PENDANT NECKLACE
Cute. I don’t have anything like it… and I can think of a lot of things to wear it with.
SAVILLE MIXED MATERIAL CREW NECK SWEATER
I really just love the back of this sweater.
FLORENCE COLORBLOCKED DRESS
I don’t own any dresses like this one, and it’s super comfortable.
ESTEN BUTTON-UP SLEEVELESS BLOUSE
This blouse is perfect for work year round, and I think it could be really fun to style for spring and summer. I’m also testing out the boyfriend jean trend (these are from old navy)… I’m still undecided, but they’re so freakin’ comfortable.
JORDANNE A-LINE SKIRT
Very basic. I don’t own a coral skit, and it’s a good work option.
So there you have it… I’m actually a fairly big fan this time around (thank you Stitch Fix, Samantha!) The only thing I debated about was the skirt (it’s pretty basic and on the pricey end), BUT if you buy all five items you save 25%, so when I did the math (who am I kidding, when the computer did the math), I realized the difference in price without the skirt was literally 1$… I decided I might as well just keep it. I’ll get good use out of it for work.
I’d love to hear your thoughts!
Oh, AND if you’d like to give it a shot… here’s my little referral link: https://www.stitchfix.com/referral/3457311
Stitch Fix is worth trying in my opinion… like I said, the style profile was fun to fill out, and the other great thing is that when you sign up, you can provide a link to your pinterest style board. Your stylist will look at it when picking out your items! My only tip is to be VERY specific when you are completing your profile… use the comment sections, and be completely honest about what you like and don’t. It’s a fun little style adventure… sweatpants optional.
