When it comes to style and picking clothes out for myself, I have a tough time! I never want to get outside of my normal bubble of certain styles and types and so shopping for new clothes is a task I do not look forward to. I find myself stressed and frustrated when I don’t find the right fit of jeans because I only like boot cut, or that a shirt isn’t quite the right shade that looks good on me, etc. I also have a hard time with dresses, I find some cute ones and then don’t have the confidence to give them a whirl.
I would LOVE to have a personal stylist helping me with every shopping trip, one that will be there to make me get out of my comfort zone, try some of the styles and colors I love so much on Pinterest and find the right fit for my body type. I also would love to keep up with the style without having to spend a ton of money! I was introduced to something called Stitch Fix a few months ago and couldn’t wait to give it a whirl.
Stitch Fix is for busy women on the go! Stitch Fix is the personal styling service tailored to your taste, budget and lifestyle that helps you look and feel your best every day.
I was nervous to let someone style me, nervous that I would hate everything in the box or that it wouldn’t fit. The profile creation on their website asks for your sizes, how you like your clothes to fit and even asks for you to link it to your Pinterest style board (if you have one). Then, once you schedule your box, you can leave a note for the stylist about anything in particular that you are looking for. I told her that I had a wedding in a few weeks and that my birthday was the week after the box would be received. I was nervous but excited about receiving my first box! I couldn’t wait to open it so I did a live unboxing video so you can see first what I got in my box…. check it out:
What did you think? I’m super impressed with what my stylist picked out for me, how the clothes were wrapped, and the personalized note that she wrote me! How fun is this….. I didn’t even eat dinner until I filmed that video, and tried on all of the clothes! Here’s my try-on session!
The Adelyn Rae dress above will be perfect for the wedding that we are attending in a few weeks! I think this one is definitely a keeper, it is so comfortable and will be perfect for the summer! What do you think?
This outfit is definitely a step out of my comfort zone! The pants are SO comfortable and fit me well but I usually go for boot cut and standard jean colors. The top is a little too short in the torso and not necessarily my style. The purple clutch is my favorite color but if I keep another bag we are going to be in trouble! What do you think of the outfit?
Patrice, my stylist, picked out this adorable top for me! I knew as soon as I pulled it out of the box that I would love it. I love the navy and white on it and also the added feature at the neckline. This top is SO comfortable and cute with the white shorts I have on. This top is from Skies are Blue! What do you think of it?
