Serious fun fashion right to your door... I am addicted to Stitch Fix already.
This is my second month getting 'a fix'. Last month I kept 2 things... a blouse with funny birds and some front pleating that I would have never thought to try (it's the same one that Stephanie Howell had if you happen to follow her darling blog) and a tshirt that looked like nothing special until I put it on and it fit like a glove.
So what came in my box this month?
- black ponte pants
- royal blue jersey blazer
- silk shirt
- another fun (more subtle) bird shirt
- chevron tunic
Sorry for the goofy faces - I suck at self portraits apparently.
I'm keeping the bird shirt - love it. I clearly have something with birds. Which is funny in it's own way... but I digress.
The blazer was super cuddly and quite a lovely color, but it was a bit too snug for 'the girlfriends' so it went back. If it had come in pink or stripes, I might have kept it...
The ponte pants were tempting, lovely material I'll be watching out for now, but I didn't need another pair of pants like them and they were snug. Made me want to workout though, which is probably a good thing.
This mint silk shirt was lovely, but almost the exact same cut as the bird shirt and I decided it wasn't a great color for me. (my friend Kathy swooped right in and snagged it though - we started a fix share this month, checking out each others goods before we sent back... double the fun. I highly recommend.)
The tunic was a major ' um, no'. Lovely for being a tunic, as it was a lovely pattern and fabric and I love that it wasn't a loose tie, but tunics often translate into 'dress' for me. And again, things with ties aren't flattering with a little more giftedness on top. My fashion nemesis.
So that's that.
Oh and I may have snagged an orange cardigan sweater from Kathy's box. And yes, it is the exact same one that Gillian Nelson totally destroyed in her blog... I laughed out loud and promptly tried it on again to make sure I wasn't crazy. I'm good. Whew.
Until next month...
For those who are saying. "What in the heck are you talking about, lady?"...
Stitch Fix, is like a personal shopper that comes to your home. You take a survey
about your fashion likes and dislikes, give them your sizes and
preferred price ranges, and they choose 5 pieces for you and mail them to you. A $20 "styling fee" is charged when shipped that is applied to your purchase. You have 3 days to try on the clothes, you pay online for what you want to keep and send the rest back in an included, postage-paid envelope, and drop it off at the
post office. Easy peasy. They also offer a discount of 25% off if you purchase all 5 pieces.
I'm not affiliated with Stitch Fix in any way, but if you are interested in checking it out and use my code, I will get a $25 credit towards my next purchase. And if not me, pick someone, share the love.
