There are a number of things that changed since we’ve had kids. Like my shoe-shopping habits that had to be reigned in for time restraints and financial reasons. Or the evenings out and trips to the movies that are rare. But the one I miss most is clothes shopping.
I absolutely love browsing through isles, picking up way too many articles of clothing and spending a half hour in the dressing room. But with two kids, especially an infant, work, and everything else that is our life, there just isn’t room for me to spend a couple of hours just dilly dallying at the mall. I know that it won’t last and I’m not complaining, but I sure do miss the clothes.
Fall is a time of the year when I miss it most. Shopping for new sweaters, cute jeans, or the newest jewelry trends at the change of the season is among my very favorite things to do. But giving up time at the playground or a hike or a walk in the park? Well, not really worth it.
And then a friend of mine introduced me to Stitch Fix.
I’ve seen a few other bloggers post their Fixes on Instagram and I was always a bit curious and after talking it over with a friend, I decided to give it a go. And with the arrival of my very own Fix, I was hooked!
Let me give you a little summary of the service: you fill out a survey about your preferences (style, price range, etc etc) and based on that, a personal stylist will pick out 5 items that they feel will fit you best and ship them to you. You go through them, try them on, and ship whatever you don’t like back.
Did I mention how genius and awesome that is for a mom who loves to shop but doesn’t have the time to do it?
I was so so so giddy to see my first Stitch Fix arrive.
Some things were a little off, while others were just perfect. Each piece came with a little styling tip and a couple of different ways to pair your outfits.
I went through the items, trying them on and decided on two keepers: the black top and the Baubles necklace.
Guess what’s now going on my Christmas list?
