It’s kind of funny because I used to spend a lot more time in workout clothes and pajamas, but now when I leave the house with Liv, it’s kind of fun to wear “real” clothes since she’s not wearing her jammies. After Liv was born, I was pretty shocked by the lack of real clothes in my closet. I always wear workout outfits, had been living in the few maternity clothes I owned, along with lots of the Pilot’s T-shirts. Things fit me differently than they used to and I donated a lot of clothes when I first got pregnant.
When Liv and I are out and about, she’s pretty easygoing and fun to take anywhere, but clothes shopping is a nightmare. I can grab things and buy them, but when it comes to trying on, she’s not down with waiting for me. Last time we went to the mall with a mission to get a cute casual outfit, I ended up singing “Itsy Bitsy Spider” probably 4 times while quickly trying on the top and pants, waiting for the time bomb in the stroller to sound the alarm that she was ready to keep moving.
Also, since my brain has officially turned to mush, I can’t for the life of me remember what I still own, that actually fits, that might match things I see on the random shopping occasion.
StitchFIx to the rescue for all of the above.
Before I get into the review, I just wanted to let you guys know that this post wasn’t sponsored in any way. I’m pretty such the StitchFix peeps don’t even know I have a blog, haha. I paid for everything with my own money, loved it, and wanted to help spread the word.
Here’s how it works:
-You fill out an extensive style questionnaire with your height, weight, style preferences, the types of clothes you’re looking for, colors and patterns you love/hate and rate certain outfits. It’s very thorough and fun to fill out.
-You schedule your “fix” for the week you’d like it to arrive.
-The fix is delivered (there is a $20 styling fee which is used as a credit to any pieces you’d like to purchase) and contains a mix of different tops, dresses, pants, accessories, anything you requested, hand-picked by a stylist just for you.
-You try on the pieces with things you already own at home, keep and pay for whatever you love and send back the rest.
The shipping bag that’s included is extremely easy to use. It’s pre-labeled and accepted by USPS, so mine just went out in the regular ol’ mailbox. Pretty brilliant.
It was like Christmas when the first one arrived!
I didn’t have to drive anywhere (or entertain a little one in a stroller) and could actually take the time to try on everything.
In my package was a gorgeous red blouse, black jegging-type pants (super soft), a sweater dress, sweater and black scarf.
One of my favorite little touches: the tags offer mix-and-match strategies for outfits.
EVERYTHING fit. Let the angels sing.
I adored the blouse, but recently got one at Gap that’s the exact same color- ended up keeping the black pants (they fit perfectly and are going to be so comfy with boots or flats this winter) and this unique sweater:
So there ya go! If you’ve been wanting to sign up, here’s the link with an invitation!
