I know I haven't blogged in forever. A few of my friends were asking for pictures of what I kept from my first Stitch Fix, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to blog!
What is Stitch Fix?
It is an online styling service. I signed up after several friends kept raving about it. I just gave birth in November to our sixth baby, and my wardrobe was maternity shirts and skinny jeans. I also don't really have much time to go shopping with my nursing baby. In addition to all of that, I am not fashion savvy. In fact, I have taken friends shopping with me more than once so they could pick out clothes for me. I have no idea what goes together, and I am not up on the latest trends. Stitch Fix sounded perfect for me!
How does it work?
I paid $20 for the styling fee, answered a lot of questions about my style and my figure. They sent me five items. I tried them on in the comfort of my own home, with my own wardrobe handy to mix and match. I liked everything in my box, but a few items just didn't work for one reason or another. I ended up keeping two items: a v-neck, sheer, navy blue blouse, and a pair of dangly silver hoop earrings. My $20 fee was applied to my purchase of these two items. Items are $55 on average, but mine were all different ranges. I put three items back in the prepaid postage mailer and left feedback on their website and paid my bill. At their suggestion, I started a Pinterest board to give them ideas of what I like. They also suggested I post a picture of myself to the board so they could see what I look like (which would definitely help them help me).
I know you're dying to see the blouse and earrings. Here you go. My husband took some pictures while we were at the park, and I felt totally awkward and unnatural.
This is the blouse. It has plenty of room for my postpartum physique without giving up a tailored look. I am actually wearing the earrings in this picture, but you can't see them because my mane is in the way.
Here are the earrings:
I never buy accessories, so I kept them!!
I scheduled another fix for next month. I can't wait to see what they pick out!!! If you're interested in trying out Stitch Fix, here is my referral link. If you sign up through my link, I get $25!
