Hey there! My friend Jessica has a linky party called What I'm Wearing Wednesday and she has asked me to join a few times. I told her I couldn't because I don't know how to take selfies. So, she showed me how while we were in Vegas, but I'm still not very good at it!
Stitch Fix and wanted to share it with you! If you don't know what Stitch Fix is, click HERE and you can check it out for yourself! Basically you answer some questions about your body and style and a stylist picks out clothes for you and then sends them to your house! You try them on and send back anything that doesn't fit or you don't like (for FREE).
I've had four fixes I think. I tried to look it up but I couldn't find how many. I think it's 4. I usually keep one or two items. If you like all 5 pieces, you get 25% off the items. So, I wanted to keep all 5 each time but usually the fit wasn't quite right.
See, my problem area is my lower half. I'd say I'm pear shaped. So dresses would fit on my bottom half but be too big on the top. Or, it would be a shirt that fit well up top but was too tight in my hips. So annoying. I hate being pear shaped. And I hate tight things. Not my style. So I started working out this summer and guess what? I lost inches UP TOP and not in my problem areas (yep, still have all that junk in my trunk!)! Ugh. How does that happen? I'm spinning my legs off but I'm losing weight in my chest? Just doesn't seem right...anyway...
For the last three fixes I've had the same stylist. She is AWESOME! After each fix you give them feedback on their website about each item. I try to be very specific. I told her in June that I'm pear shaped, I hate it, and I don't like anything tight around my hips. And guess what? She LISTENED! And, I kept all 5 items in my July fix!! So, let me show you what she sent me!
(Now, please forgive the pictures! I told you I don't take good selfies. My 9 year old daughter took them. She is about a foot shorter than me. So she was angling the phone up to take the pictures which is so unflattering but I couldn't be upset that she's shorter than me!)
Here is a dress from my fix. Now, again, it's very form fitting which is not generally something I'd go for in a dress, especially with horizontal stripes on the lower half, but again, it's SUPER comfortable and I can throw pretty much any colored cardigan over it and even leggings under it in the winter.
I love that everything is comfortable, can be worn back to school immediately, and she kept the shirts flowy on top. I've always loved everything sent to me! Seriously! I always open the box and pull it out and oooooo and ahhhhhhh! It's kind of sad, though, when something adorable comes and it doesn't fit. This time, I was soooooo excited when it all worked! I know some people have used Stitch Fix and haven't had the same stylist each time. I guess I got lucky because it totally makes a difference! Now that she knows where my head is at with my body issues and my style, I think she'll keep nailing it!!
If you haven't tried Stitch Fix, go check it out! They didn't ask me to blog about it and I get nothing in return. I just wanted to share my happiness about my last fix! What are YOU wearing? ;O)
