I'm sure most of you know what the title of this post refers to. For those of you that don't, Stitch Fix is a styling service website where you get monthly (or more often, based on preference) "fixes" of fashion items. You fill out a profile on their website, and a stylist will style a fix for you based on it. So you basically get a present every month! Of course you have to pay for the service, it's $20 per fix, and you get five things sent to you. Keep the items you want, and mail back the items you don't want. Check out online, the $20 styling fee applies to the stuff you keep.
It's a really fun service. I jumped to it when I first found out about the service. But then I wasn't really liking my monthly fixes. I felt that the stylist didn't really get me. So I cancelled for a while, then decided to give it another try. My November fix was surprisingly good! When I opened the box, at first glance I wasn't very impressed. But I still tried on each item. To my surprise, one of the blouses that I tried on was very flattering! And the jeans that were sent to me - let me tell you, I already have a handful of black jeans - but this pair, I kept it because it was so incredibly comfortable.
It's truly a fun experience each time I get my box of fixes. I eagerly await its arrival when the date is close, and when I finally see it at my doorstep, it's like, "Ok, the kids can wait on their dinner. Mama is trying on clothes first!"
Here's my most recent fix. I paired the blouse with the black pants, and accessorized the ensemble with a black glittered Rebecca Minkoff clutch and Valentino Rockstud pumps. On my lips I'm wearing a plum-colored lipstick. Perfect for the season. The rather business-like pairing suddenly look hip when I added fun and edgy accessories to it. I'm still relatively conservative. My idea of "edgy" is as edgy as a mother-of-three type of edgy gets. ;)
