A super colicky, super reflux-y, super not interested in naps baby.
This is not my first rodeo, but still somewhere in the 'not working so great' part of my brain I assumed I'd be just about back into my normal clothes by now. (3.5 mos post partum) HA, boy what was I thinking? Honestly - I am so far from being in my pre-baby clothes it's like a distant memory...
What better time to give Stitch Fix a go then when you are staring at a closet full of long lost dreams and days gone by....
I was tired of yoga pants and frumpy shirts and thought this would be a GREAT way to add pieces to my wardrobe without dragging my kids out to try to shop and having to think to hard about what might look good on me.
If you don't know what Stitch Fix is, you're probably wondering what the heck I'm blabbering about. Stitch Fix is a personal styling service - you fill out a detailed questionnaire with information about your size, weight, height, likes and dislikes. You pay a $20 styling fee and a box shows up at your doorstep with 5 pieces in it. It might contain jeans, shirts, accessories, or a combination of things. Each item will be personally selected for you by a stylist, based on the information you provided.
I was SO excited to get my box o' stuff. The thought of dragging my kids out to try to find clothes that fit me made me want to crawl into a hole and cry - but the thought of a box showing up on my doorstep with pretty clothes, hand selected for me? That was exciting stuff, people.
Everything in the box is nicely wrapped, and included with your items is a sheet like this that shows you different ways to style what's in the box!
And - hello, a personalized little note from my stylist. I was already digging this service and I hadn't even busted into the clothes yet.
My stylist did a phenomenal job pegging my style. I asked for casual or bohemian/romantic pieces that would be flattering to a post partum body. And this is no lie - I loved every. single. piece she sent! Every single piece! A few of them didn't look quite right, and I wasn't ready to shell out money for a bag just yet (diaper bags for life, yo) but I did end up purchasing two of the tops.
Even my toddler wanted to try this stuff out...
After you check out your loot and try stuff on, you decide what you want to keep and what you want to send back. If you keep ANY of the items, you deduct your $20 styling fee off of the overall cost. If you keep all 5 items, you also get a 25% discount. Whatever you don't want, you send back in a prepaid envelope included in your box.
I noticed that one of the sleeves of my new sweater was unraveling a little bit, so I sent an email to the Stitch Fix help desk, and they responded promptly - they had no more in stock but were willing to give me a discount on the sweater if I thought I could fix it myself - which I graciously accepted. Ha!
So - let's talk price. Stitch Fix says the average cost is about $65 - you can choose a price point, and nothing in my box was over $68. Still trying to decide on the quality vs cost - some of the items seemed to be higher quality than others and the price is definitely higher than I generally pay (Target and Old Navy shopper here!) but I'm willing to pay a little more so I don't have to go out and shop myself right now.
I am already looking forward to my next fix, which should arrive around February 12th. If you want to try Stitch Fix for yourself, I would love for you to use my referral code! Just click HERE to sign up!
