Got my third fix from Stitchfix this week and thought I'd share a few more thoughts. I shared my last blog post and pictures with my stylist, pinned many examples on the board she sees on Pinterest and gave detailed feedback on my checkout page. I think all of these things really helped to get a fix that was really great this time around.
I specifically asked for a white tunic blouse, a black skirt and an neutral cardigan:
|Margaret M Christiana Skirt - Black|
R D Style Vivianna Open-Draped Knit Cardigan
Daniel Rainn Minal V-neck 3/4 sleeve Solid Blouse
Thank you, Amanda. You rocked this.
Also in my fix, this cotton voile blouse in navy blue:
|Fun2Fun Aurora Tab-Sleeve Blouse|
Mavi Ruxin Boyfriend Jean
This shirt, shown paired with jeans from my first fix, is going to be a favorite. When I first saw it, I thought it would be too small and would just make me feel bad, but it fits beautifully and I like everything about it. It is slimming and cool and a little bit tough. It's perfect for me. I feel like myself in it.
|Loveappella Tori V-neck Knit Top|
|Rune Porter Legging|
This was almost a complete win, but sadly, this shirt does me no favors. I kind of bitterly hate it in a way that really makes no sense. I mean, it's an article of clothing, not a terrorist, but sometimes clothes are weird that way. However, if you buy all the items, you get such a big discount, it was worth it to keep it. I am shamelessly going to wear it as pajamas. Or, you know...the outfit I roll out of the house in to drop kids off at school and go back home to waste time on the internet. It's that kind of shirt.
This fix was the one that tied everything together for me. I can now put together dozens of outfits for any occasion. I had some fun for the first time in a long time just mixing things together to see what would work. It might seem shallow in the face of all the things that are happening in the world,
but a little self-care so that I can take good care of others is a healthy thing. So far, this service continues to be worth it for me. That was especially obvious to me as I have now gotten rid of nearly everything I bought for myself to wear post-baby because it didn't fit right, looked bad on me, or has fallen apart. Confirmation that a little quality over quantity is a good practice.
So, once again, if you decide you would like to try Stitchfix, consider using my referral code.
