I have heard bloggers & friends talking about Stitch Fix forever. I knew it was a clothing delivery service where they send you items selected by a “stylist” and then you keep what you like and send back what you don’t. To be honest, I had ZERO interest in trying this out. When it comes to my clothes I am super boring and basic. When I find a pair of pants or jeans I love, I buy 4 pairs. When I find a top I like I buy it in every color. (as long as that “color” is black, white, navy or grey) Also, I am really picky. It is hard to find clothes that fit me properly or are long enough since I am tall.
As you know, my big mantra for the new year is #MoreMEin2016. So when the woman from Stitch Fix emailed me, I decided NOT to immediately delete it. I never had time to shop for myself, and I did want to try to step up my style, at least a little bit. Since it wouldn’t cost me anything to give it a try, I figured I had nothing to lose.
I got my first ‘fix’ at the beginning of December and did a periscope about it. There were a few items I immediately liked and others I didn’t. I was so busy that I didn’t take pictures or anything. I was shocked to find that everything fit… and I really liked 3 out of the 5 items. (I ended up keeping 2) One of the dresses that I didn’t like AT ALL when I saw it, actually looked so nice on that I decided to keep it.
I was really looking forward to this month’s fix, but it was kind of a disappointment. I really liked one top, but the rest just wasn’t for me.

I am going to continue using this service, since I they do a pretty good job selecting items that I would like and everything they have sent has fit so far. To be honest, it is also really fun getting a box full of clothes in the mail, especially since I never have time to go to the mall. It is a nice treat. Also, my friends have told me that the longer you use the service the better they get to know you and your style, and the better your deliveries. I updated my “mommy style” board on Pinterest, so that should help my stylist. I’ll keep you posted! In the meantime, if you want to try StitchFix for yourself, here’s my referral link!
