Hi! Another Friday has rolled around again! With Easter this weekend, we've got a lot going on. Unfortunately the weather will be less than stellar, but we'll make the most of it!
I've got a couple faves for you today and the one MAJOR fave to share with you that may or may not rock your world :)
Ok - I know I said that I wouldn't do any more posts with games using plastic eggs, but these ideas from Scholastic are pretty great and I would be doing you a disservice if I didn't pass it along:
Ok, now. I interrupt out regularly scheduled Friday Faves and I bring you a game changer :)
Have you heard of Stitch Fix? Let me tell you about my new love.
How would you like a personal stylist? How about someone who hand-picks styles to fit your body and then delivers them to your door. No more mall shopping and trying on outfits in changing rooms while your baby cries. (Yes. Yes. and Tell me more!)
I always have thought that I have a pretty good sense of style, but I hate shopping and I'm never confident when I try to pick out something that I think is trendy. So as a result, I am still wearing clothing from freshman year in college. I kept hearing about this Stitch Fix company from other bloggers I follow and I decided to finally give it a try.
Here's how it works:
1) You create an account with Stitch Fix (affiliate code) and create a styling profile where they ask you a bunch of styling questions, your measurements and what not to get an idea of who they will be styling. It's actually kinda fun to fill out.
2) You are assigned a personal stylist (mine is Nicole) and using your style profile, the stylist chooses 5 items (tops, bottoms, and accessories) that she thinks you will like based on your profile.
3) You anxiously wait for your first fix to come.
4) You get awkwardly giddy when you come home from teaching a fitness class at the Y and see the Stitch Fix box on your doorstep.
(ok, those last two steps may be me-specific)
5) After you receive your items, you try everything on, keep what you want, send back what you don't. Easy!
I am really pleased with what they sent me for my first fix! Here's my review
This blouse it reeeeallly pretty in person (I take terrible pictures, which is why my face is cut off in all the pics..hehe, you'll have to take my word for it). It's light and flow-y with a nice texture. Perfect for spring. I would have never picked this to try on if I saw it in the store, which is why love stitch fix. They encourage you to try new things!
I decided to keep the blouse.
They also sent me the fabulous necklace. Here's a closer look:
I love how I'll be able to wear it with so many things! It's a keeper as well!
Next up are these distressed skinny jeans. They are so soft with a nice stretch. I don't even have to hem them (which is rare on my 5'1 height). I paired the jeans with this new button down top I just bought at Old Navy and a pair of nude flats.
I kept the jeans as well as they will be great for spring!
The next top is so lovely that I'm sad it was too big on me:
The arms are awkwardly floppy on me and the body was a bit big. It looked so nice with the new mint flowered necklace that I recently purchased. I'm really sad to send it back
Finally, I had requested that my stylist send me a blazer. The color is gorgeous and the cut was really nice on my short torso:
Unfortunately, it was a little snug across the back, compliments of my broad shoulders. It was also a little long on my arms. I loved the way it looked with the cream polka-dot blouse. I paired it with some pearls and it really made a polished look. I may choose to request another blazer on my next fix (scheduled May 27 - and I'm already anxious to get it!)
In all, I kept 3 of the 5 items - not bad for my first fix. Once you decide what you're going to keep, you go on their website to provide feedback so that they can make your next fix even better.
My first experience was awesome. I'm sold! If you've been thinking about joining, I highly recommend it. I would also love it if you used this link as my referral code.
Any other stitch fix users out there? I've been loving reading other bloggers reviews of their fixes!
