“Fashion is like eating. You shouldn’t stick with the same menu.” -Kenzo Takada
If you are like me, then you know that shopping with little ones is close to impossible…actually it IS impossible. I used to love going shopping, looking at all the new and upcoming trends, finding a few new options for the season, it was a joy. Now, I only see fashion trends on Pinterest (or Project Runway) and never get a chance to find such looks.
As of lately I have wished for my own personal shopper. Someone to find the trends, pick what will look good on my body and deliver it straight to me! Sounds to good to be true? Well, its not! The future of fashion made easy is now here.
My close friend told me about a website called Stitch Fix. It’s a personal stylist that literally shops for you. All you do is fill out a questionnaire, tell them your measurements, give them suggestions about what you like, don’t like, materials you would never wear, your profession, your budget and you can even link a Pinterest account so they can see pictures of things you like. You pay a mere $20 for a “fix” but you can put that $20 toward anything that you like in the box of five items. If you like everything in the box you can also take an additional 25% off all five items. They include a prepaid mailing envelope for anything that you don’t like and decide to send back. If you don’t like any of the five items you just loose the $20. You can also specify if you are looking for something for a special occasion and add a profile picture of yourself for them to see.
It came so highly recommended to me that I decided to give it a try. It sounded absolutely perfect for my life right now. So I placed my “fix.” For me, this time around all I really said I needed was to replace a pair of black skinny jeans. When the box arrived on my doorstep I felt like Santa had just filled my stocking!
My five looks included: a pair of black skinny jeans, two tops, a zipped cardigan and a gold bar necklace. I did like all five items, but because of some fit issues I decided to keep two.
The THML Keeli Raglan knit top was also one of the other items I decided to keep. I love the colors, fit, relaxed style and feel like I can wear it to the park with the kids or out of a date night with the hubby. I actually already wore these two together and paired it with my uggs & beanie on a family day out.
Overall, I had a really fun time with the experience and I will most definitely do it again, very soon. An added bonus is that if you refer a friend and they decide to sign up you can earn a $25 referral. So, if you are reading this, and want to give it a try I will leave my referral code for you, just in case you want to help this mama shopper out!;) And to all you husbands out there that don’t know what to get your wife for Christmas, this would be perfect! Happy shopping!!!!
