Stitch Fix: I'm Feeling It

Six months ago, when I decided to buckle down and get really serious about getting my mind and body back into shape postpartum, I started setting small goals to encourage me along the way.  One of my goals was to revamp my very sad and outdated wardrobe.  I promised myself that if I got to a certain weight, I would sign up for this Stitch Fix service that everyone's been raving about and put some life back into my closet.  Five months of clean eating and exercise earned me my prize and I jumped on the Stitch Fix bandwagon with gusto!

What is Stitch Fix?  It's a service that sends you clothes for you to try on in the comfort of your own home based on a style profile that you create on their website!  You fill out a ton of questions about your style, your body type, and your preferences.  My style, for instance, is a mix between laid back/casual and boho.  The more specific you are about your style, the more feedback you provide about your fixes, the better.  I created a Pinterest style board that I update regularly so that my stylist can see what I'm loving/wanting/needing.  You can choose how often you receive a fix, I am currently getting mine once a month but will probably take a break during the holidays.  You can also chose your price range.  You pay a $20 styling fee which you can use toward your order if you keep any of your items.  Keep what you like, send the rest back in the included envelope.  If you keep all 5 items in your fix, you get 25% off your order.  It's so easy and convenient!

Why do I love it?  For one, it's just fun to get a box of clothes in the mail every month.  I never go shopping and rarely buy anything for myself over the kids so this has just been such a treat for me. When I do shop, it is almost always online and sending things back is such a pain.  With this service, however, sending items back is a no brainer as everything you need is included in the box.  I love the fact that the pieces are tailored to suit me specifically.  And I love that these are good quality clothes that will serve as staple pieces in my wardrobe for a really long time.

Here are a few items I've received over the last 3 months:

Daniel Rainn Blouse


This top was from my first fix.  I love how light and flowy it is.  I love that I can dress it up or down.

Skies Are Blue Top
Kensie Jeans

These are my new favorite jeans of all time.  I was very hesitant about getting jeans through an online service because I typically have to haul like 50 pairs of jeans into the dressing room with me and cry when none of them fit perfectly but these fit like a glove!!  They have the perfect amount of stretch in them and they make me feel so happy!  This top is me all the way, comfy and casual but pretty.  This is my mom on the go uniform.

Mystree Top
Just Black Pants


I really wanted a pair of black skinnies, something different from my typical jeans/cutoffs look. These are fitted and stretchy and I love the length.  I can pair these with so many different options: staple wardrobe piece for sure.  I love the pattern of this top and will pair it with a cardi when the weather gets cool.

Pixley Top
Kensie Jeans


This top is all soft grey simple in the front and then pretty pattern in the back.  I've worn this like 20 times already 20 different ways, I love it.  And there are those great Kensie jeans again!  They are so slimming!

THML Sweater
Just Black Pants


Oh how do I wish it were actually cool enough to wear long sleeves already!  This sweater is perfect for the mild winter weather we have here in Louisiana.  It's super soft and I love the detail on the neck and sleeves, it turns a simple top into something special.

Renee C. Dress

This dress is my favorite.  I love that I can wear it in the summer but then pair it with tights and boots and a cardigan for the winter.  The print is on point and the fit is perfect for me.

This is a great service and a fun way to branch out and find pretty pieces to add to your wardrobe.  Have you tried Stitch Fix?  What do you think?

First of all, you are looking fantastic. I mean, you ALWAYS look beautiful, but you're radiating something a little extra special these days.

Second, I am insanely jealous because Stitch Fix is not available in Canada.

Third, I have seen A LOT of stitch fix fails (almost enough to make me NOT jealous), but they got you, girl. You look great in everything. The Skies are Blue top is AMAZING and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the last dress.

I love all of the clothes they sent you, and I've seen a lot of Stitch Fix reviews. (Wish they'd get on board for plus sizes, though!) You look gorgeous in all of the above. That dress is extra freaking awesome. I've also been on the lookout for a pair of black jeans, and I haven't found any that really do it for me yet.
