My First "Fix"!

I received my first Stich Fix box in the mail this weekend! If you don't know what Stich Fix, it is kind of like a personal stylist. You simply fill out the Stitch Fix Style Profile and their personal stylists will handpick a selection of five clothing items and accessories unique to your taste, budget and lifestyle. You can buy what you like and return the rest! I thought it would be a fun way to spice of my wardrobe (tshirts & yoga pants have dominated my SAHM wardrobe these days!) and maybe get a few things that I normally wouldn't choose for myself. 

When I filled out my style profile I did it right through the app and it went really smooth! The other cool thing you can do, is link your style profile to a pinterest where you can pin outfits you love and your stylist will use it to help choose your five items. You also can choose how often you want to receive a fix, every 2-3 weeks, monthly, every other month, every 3 months, or on demand. 


There is a $20 styling fee, but if you choose to keep one or more items that $20 gets deducted from the price of that item(s). Within your style profile you can indicate your price range. I chose the option that said "the cheaper, the better"! In my opinion, the items aren't "bargain" shopping, but I love that they are chosen for me, sent to me (I don't have to go anywhere!), it's free shipping, they are quality items and they are things I wouldn't normally choose for myself. The five items I received ranged from $28-98. Oh and if you keep all 5 items you get 25% off your entire fix!


Without further ado, here is a quick little video out my first fix! Check it out!


The jeans and the dress were both super cute, but too small. Also the cut of the dress did not flatter my shape. This is the other cool thing about Stitch Fix, you can be VERY specific about things like that (which I should have!). For future fixes I'm going to note that I only want empire waist dresses because those flatter my shape much better than the drop waist style that was sent to me. 


Talk about being specific, look at the personalized note I received in my fix: 


I love it! That tells me she read all of my requests I included in my style profile! The Ezra top was one that my cousin received and was SO cute! And the cargo vest is something I requested and have pinned multiple times on my Pinterest style board. You also get this handy card to give you some inspiration on how to style your items you received. 




The vest, the gray top, and the gold necklace were my favorites from this fix (the jeans are ones I already own)! I'm keeping the vest and the necklace. The top is a tad snug around my hips, sadly I'm going to return it.

It's likely that I have a rock {or two} in my pocket. {thanks my rock loving little boy}
My house gets messier quicker than it ever has {we’re here all the time}.
I’ve got extra {spiderman} undies in my purse.
Instead of reading Federal registers, work email, etc, I read children's books. 
My lunch hour is no longer spent alone.
Speaking of lunch, it usually isn’t warm.
I don’t get sick days, vacation, or break time.
Daily conversations revolve around dolls, trucks, & potty talk.
I've become an excellent referee & negotiator. 
My schedule involves swim lessons, story time, bike rides, and play dates.
I repeat myself, A LOT.
TV entertainment includes Disney Jr, princesses, & super heros.
I answer questions all.day.long.
Instead of my name badge, you might find a sticker {or 2!} on my shirt.
I get mushy kisses throughout the day.
I give magical kisses to take owies away.  
I treasure after nap snuggles.
I’m blessed to spend my days with my kids.
I’m a full time stay-at-home mom, best job ever.
