Have you heard of this service yet? I hadn't until our CC Moms' Retreat. Stitch Fix is like having a personal shopper, which is great for me because I really don't have time to go and do some good shopping for nice clothes. I mean, c'mon, I usually buy my clothes where I buy my food (did I really just type that!?), So, Stitch Fix has been an efficient - and fun - way to get quality clothes into my closet. And these are clothes that not everyone has; you know what I'm talking about, right? I'm talking about that cute yellow/mustard sweater from Target. You have it and so do I, and so does everyone who shops at Target, because it's super-cute. However, sometimes I want to wear something that's a little different, something unique.
You can schedule your 'fix' for once every 2-3 weeks, once a month, etc. Mine is scheduled for every month.
It looks so pretty when I open the box! Wrapped in paper! Paper, people!
A personal note from my stylist is included, letting me know why she picked each piece. Love the customer service. Shout-out to Kalesa for being a rockin' stylist! Woot!
Also included in each 'fix' are some ideas on how to wear the pieces. Handy.
Here we go...
Let's see what's inside!
Item 1: Colibri Solid Tab Sleeve Blouse
I was not a fan of this olive color (nor was I a fan of taking pictures of myself to put on the internet - felt reeealy weird!), but I LOVE the length (exactly what I asked for - long and loose tops). I've paired it with my new obsession - lace top extenders from Grace & Lace (GREAT company, btw). And it just feels sooo smooth and nice and pretty. Price: $48.
(Sidenote: why in the world am I taking pictures of myself in these clothes? Well, first, to share this fun service with you, friend! Stitch Fix makes me happy, and when something makes me happy, I want to share! And second, it helps other Stich Fixers. I've been to lots of blogs to check out items and how they look on other mamas before I request it in a fix. So, I just want to return the favor to my fellow Fix buddies!) Okay, back to business! Don't you love how long this top is?!
Verdict: It's in my closet right now.
(See, isn't this fun?!)
Item 2: Shiloh Tonal Dot Print Sleeveless Blouse
This is really pretty up-close with a fun scalloped hem along the bottom. I do apologize for these less-than-stellar photos; I just didn't have time to get all artsy this morning. Anyway, it's really cute and loose, which is what I like. Price: $58. Ouch, right?! Yes, I know, it's expensive for a sleeveless top, but, y'all, you just have to see it and feel it, and well, you can probably guess what I did with it...
Sent it back.
Verdict: Yeah, it's hanging up in my closet.
Item 3: Augustina Lace Back Open Cardigan
Looks great from the front, paired with the sleeveless top above. LOVE the kelly green color. However... take a look at the back (and my face):
It's lacy and open. I wanted to like it because the color was so great and again, it felt so pretty. But in the end, I just need a sweater that has a back to it. Price: between $50 and $60 (the actual price is in the room next to sleeping kiddos, and there's no WAY I'm going in there right now!) And yes, that is a homemade platform swing behind me in all these pictures. And yes, my four-year-old Anna loves it, but that's another post. ;) )
Item 4: Leandro Chevron Stripe Henley Knit Shirt
All of the shirts feel sooo pretty; I just can't explain it, and this one was no exception. I like the length (paired again with my Grace and Lace extender) and the pattern is fine. This is something I would never pick out for myself and try on in a store, but that's another great thing about Stitch Fix - it gets me out of my boring-clothes rut! Price: $54.
Verdict: Hanging up in my closet.
Last one for the month!
Item 5: Lindy Grid Print Blouse
