I hate shopping. Almost more than anything. I’ve never been the type to just adore going and trying things on. In fact, I’m much more inclined to go to the mall, buy whatever, and if I don’t like it, I’ll return it. Making two trips to the mall is better–to me–than trying things on.
Clothing is hard for me. I’m 5 feet tall, about 188 pounds, with a small waist, wide hips and a big, broad back. This is the perfect recipe for disaster in a women’s clothing store. I’d be lying if I told you there hadn’t been more than a few meltdowns in the big dressing room at Macy’s (or, like, every other major clothing retailer).
A few years ago, I was introduced to StitchFix. I can’t remember just how it was introduced to me, I just remember being skeptical.
You see, StitchFix is essentially a personal styling service. You pay $20 and complete a survey about what your style is. You provide your sizes, height, weight, etc. and a stylist sends over clothing items that they think you’ll love.
When you get your box, you can try on your items, keep what you love and send back the rest. If you don’t choose anything from your box, you just send it all back.
I won’t lie, some of my boxes have been better than others. Especially in the beginning. I gave my stylist (hey Leslie!) a lot of feedback about what I loved versus what I didn’t. And y’all when I tell you she’s nailing it, I’m not exaggerating. The last THREE boxes, I’ve kept all the items.
I decided to show you guys what I got so here it is!
This PINK CLOVER two pocket cardigan is so soft and the perfect color for spring. It’s a light lavender/dusty pink and the weight of it is light enough to keep you warm but not too hot for upcoming spring. The 41 Hawthorn Mixed Material Blouse was a surprise. When I took it out of the box, I thought for sure that I’d hate it. But when I put it on, the draping made me feel fancy and slim!
Leslie also sent me these gorgeous Kate Spade Knotted Stud earrings. She may have seen on my Pinterest that I LOVE the matching bracelet but I don’t wear bracelets often. To open my box and see these? I knew I had to have them.
I’m currently in a weird place with my weight. Between trying to lose weight and get smaller and also trying to rebuild my wardrobe after Hurricane Harvey, I’m looking for a lot of clothes to rebuild my wardrobe. I loved this blouse from PaperMoon because it’s something that I can wear to work and dress up, or pair with jeans and wear on a Saturday afternoon. Very versatile!
Same jeans and boots from above.
For the last piece of my StitchFix box this month, Leslie sent over a Margaret M Printed Pencil Skirt which I paired with my 41 Hawthorn top. I have gotten several pairs of pencil slacks from Margaret M (and Leslie!) and LOVE them. I should have known that I’d love the skirt, too! I can’t wait to pair it with a gorgeous navy blue blazer for a really nice, professional look!
Needless to say, I loved everything so I kept everything and got 25% off my box this month. Shoutout to Leslie for making rebuilding my closet a painless and fun experience. Do you StitchFix? What do you think about it?
