I love stitchfix.com and have a feeling that you women will too (sorry men, they only carry women's clothing...for now). I imagine that many of you who read my blog are like me; full-time working teachers, who are moms and middle class. I don't have time to drive to the mall and go clothes shopping, especially during the school year. Even if I did have time, my children don't appreciate waiting outside dressing rooms patiently. Not only that, but I seem to pick out the same items every year. I mean really, how many black cardigans does one person need?
Stitch fix is a company who sends you five pieces of clothing/accessories to try on in the privacy of your home, keep what you want, and send back the rest. You are required to pay a $20 styling fee, but that fee turns into credit if you keep at least one item. If you decide to keep all five items, you receive a 25% discount off the entire order. Once you decide what you are keeping and sending back, you fill out a questionnaire about the items so that your next fix is even better.
I enjoy that I receive items that I wouldn't pick out for myself. My stylist has been pushing me out of my comfort zone (in a good way) and I have been finding pieces that compliment my existing wardrobe nicely (black cardigans and all).
I thought I would share my latest fix with you all because I know some of you have been sitting on the fence about joining. Perhaps this post may help you decide one way or the other.
I came home to see this on my front porch today. Happy Dance!!
I must admit that I might enjoy the days leading up to the delivery of a stitch fix more than that actual day. Anticipation is everything folks!
As soon as I opened the box and saw this dress, I knew it was a keeper. The styling card that came with it suggested wearing it with a blazer. Great idea!! Yup, those are the tags hanging there.

Here is a closeup of the necklace. I'm certain this would have overwhelmed me in a store and I would have walked right past it. It sparkles a lot but the camera is not picking that up in the photos. This is a keeper.
Ah, the popular maxi dress. I'm not a fan. I probably should have told my stylist this. Anyway, I'm one of those people who likes a style long after its in style. This dress will be going back. That's my black lab Shadow photobombing me.
*Update* I've been receiving a lot of comments about this dress, that I should have kept it. First, I'm not in love. I try to only keep clothing that I absolutely love. Second, if I were brave enough to have my photo taken straight on, you would see how wide it makes my hips look. Yikes.

I think my facial expression says a lot here. The detail on the shirt is interesting, but the cut makes my hips look WIDE (yes, I have a issue with hips). The capris are nice but the fit wasn't quite right, you can see that they are a little baggy. I will be sending back both of these items.
