Oh happy day. The day this sweet little box arrived on my door.
Let me back up. Stitch Fix. It's the new hip way to shop! Especially when you're a mama who can barely make it to the grocery store, let alone browsing racks for clothes to fit your new mama bod.
It's pretty simple, first, you fill out a style profile. That's where you get to say if you love lace or neon, tell your secret stats (height/weight/dress size). Then, you schedule the date you want your fix mailed and submit a $20 styling fee which is applied to your purchase so no loss there. Next up, your fix of 5 fancy items gets hand selected for you by your stylist. Based on the items I received, you'd think my stylist and I were besties - she read between the lines and found perfect things for me! She must be a mama too because I specifically mentioned items that were conducive to a postpartum mid section and nursing friendly. Last, but not least, your fab Stitch Fix box arrives and you do a happy dance! A mini home fashion show ensues and you decide what items are required to join your closet. If you keep all 5 pieces you get a 25% discount on the lot ... score! If you've got something to return you simply pop the go-backs into the provided mailer, pass it off to the postman and complete a simply checkout online. Checkout includes rating each item and giving feedback so your next fix is even more tailored to you.
So, you ask, "Gretchen, do you think Stitch Fix is awesome?" And the answer is, "Why, yes, I do. I really, really do."
On to the deets of my first fix ...
ONE /// I thought this would be my favorite when I opened the box. I mean, stripes? Love! And, super flattering on my belly. Unfortunately, the neckline made this one a return. It just didn't work for me.
TWO /// Love so much! The color and the cut = perfection! But, the price to wearing opportunities balance was a bit off :( Boo! I may have had a slight moment where I wished I was back at my former office job. This would have made my Monday outfit in a heart beat back then.
THREE /// Uh. I had high hopes for this top because of it's nursing compatibility, but as you can see by the photo that I didn't even want to post it was no bueno. Perhaps a smaller size would have helped? I'm not sure. It was super soft though ... like pajamas. And when every day wear feels like pajamas, that's a win.
FOUR /// The scarf, not the shirt is the focus here. I returned this because I'm a scarf whore and already have too many. Quality was lovely though, soft and sweet and the perfect length for lots of wearing options.
FIVE /// WINNER! Ohmygoodness ... I have wanted a tribal inspired sweater for many moons. I bought two last winter and ended up returning both because they just weren't right. This one, it's right. So right. And the red looks pretty fabulous with my new red lip color if I don't say so myself.
So, there's my fix! I'm going to tuck away my pennies and dollars and sign up for another soon! Which is one of the things I love about Stitch Fix; It isn't a monthly subscription, you schedule your fix for when you want it. Every month? Every week? Every season? You pick!
