Let's talk about...Stitch Fix

But first...thanks to all of you who shopped my Instagram sale! (PS-still some items left here!). And sorry to those of you who had to put up with 20 plus items flooding your feed if you had no interest!

Since I'm on the subject of clothes, I thought I'd ask if you've heard of Stitch Fix? I've been seeing other bloggers and Instagram friends post about it lately. At first, I dismissed it, thinking it was so silly to have someone I didn't even know pick out clothes and accessories and send them to me each month....but the more I contemplate it, the more appealing it becomes!




Within the last few years, my wardrobe has gone from business casual, to maternity, to completely casual stay-at-home-mom wear. My style has changed a little bit, but my needs have changed a lot. Comfort and functionality trumps everything these days, but that doesn't mean I want to look frumpy and careless either! I find that when I go into stores (99% of the time with Audrey), I just sort of pick the same styles and colors and call it a day, but then I get home and look in my closet and think "I have nothing to wear!" Or, I have cute things that I like, but I feel like they're totally not working for crawling around the floor with Audrey all day! Agh. Dilemma.

The concept with Stitch Fix is that a stylist picks out 5 items to send to you each month. You fill out information about yourself and take a style quiz so your stylist knows your needs and what you're looking for. You can even select how frequently you want a certain style sent your way. After each box of clothing, you can give additional information to your stylist on what you did and did not like, so that his/her picks for you can become even more on-point.

It would be nice to have someone pick things out for me that are on trend and fit my lifestyle without me having to over-think it, or spend time in a dressing room with Audrey (while I give her lollipops to keep her entertained!). I figure, if nothing else, this might save me time and sanity, and I could end up with some cute items that I wouldn't have picked out on my own.


Here we are - in a dressing room and she just finished her lollipop! This means, "Wrap it up, Mommy!" Then she threw a fit because I bought a green shirt, and not a pink one! LOL This girl! 


So what do you guys think? Have you tried Stitch Fix? I'm still kind of on the fence. On one hand, it seems convenient, but on the other, I feel like I might be too picky to benefit from this. I'd love to hear your feedback if you have any! I may just try one month and then cancel if I don't love it!

  1. YES! I just got my 11th fix - its so fun and convenient. I would recommend sharing your Pinterest page or at least a board that shows "your style" and your fix will be more likely one that is most your style. I look forward to my monthly fix! I have a 4 yr old and 2 yr old and shopping with them is not fun and I just don't have time! If you need a referral link, I'd love for you to use mine :) https://www.stitchfix.com/referral/3121683

  2. I have a couple friends that use StitchFix and absolutely love it! They are stay at home moms running their own businesses and love the convenience of being able to try things on at home without bringing the littles to the store :)

  3. Oh darn, I wish I'd checked your blog earlier so I could have you use my referral link. :)
    I did my first fix in December and I loved 4 out of 5 things they sent me. However, I only kept one item - a pair of bugundy skinny jeans that fit absolutely amazing, so I sucked up the $98 for them. I wore them allll the time til now but am putting them away for Spring. The other items either didn't fit quite right or I just couldn't justify the price. I'll probably do another fix soon though - it's kind of fun to do once a season!

  4. I know you saw my IG pics, and I loved my 1st fix! My 2nd will be coming in a few weeks, and I'm already excited to see what they send! I think it's a fun alternative and definitely got me out of my "comfort zone" of buying the same styles and colors, yet they were still pieces I loved and look great on! I was very happy with the 1st experience! Here's the link to my review.http://twobytwomom.com/?p=1615 xo ~Jenn www.twobytwomom.com
