Do you ever feel like you're in a style rut? I feel like I've been in one for the past several years, in fact, really since I've had children. At first, I avoided clothes-shopping like the plague as I adjusted to the changes in my *cough* hips *cough* body post-pregnancies. Then it just became such a chore to go clothes-shopping, kids in tow, complaining that I was taking too long and giggling about mama's bra on the floor.
My wardrobe has essentially morphed into a mix of oldies but goodies (that don't necessarily fit anymore), hospital scrubs, and cheap pieces grabbed hastily from Target during one of the aforementioned clothing expeditions with my children. Its desperately in need of a change... But seeing as my time is limited between working full time and being a mom and my incessant urge to paint everything in my house, when do I fit in shopping?
If you haven't heard about Stitch Fix yet, well let me fill you in... It's a personal stylist service that chooses clothing and/or accessory items for you to try based on your personal preferences. Your picks are sent to you monthly or however often you'd like. You try them out, keep what you like and return the rest. Sounds awesome, right?!
I received my first "fix" this past week:
It contained five different tops, all different styles since my style profile is not clearly defined yet... Ha! What's funny is that the one top I didn't like straight out of the box is the very one I decided to keep and the one I thought I'd like the best, well, I didn't. The rest didn't work for various reasons: fit, style, etc. And that's ok, cause I just sent it back in the postage paid envelope that came with the shipment. Easy peasy.
I love that the Stitch Fix peops include these styling cards with each item, showing you a casual and a dressier version of the item in a styled outfit. Perfection!
So what'd I keep? I know you're dying to know!
I kept this blue striped top, which was a soft knit in the front with a sheer back. It's totally not what I'd ever pick up to try on, but I ended up liking it enough to keep! That's what I like about the whole grab bag approach of Stitch Fix. It forces me out of my comfort zones, and maybe into more stylish ones along the way!
I'm super excited already about the next shipment and what will be inside that sweet little box.
Have you tried Stitch Fix? What are your thoughts?
