Three Reasons Why I Stitch Fix:
Gone are the days that I can shop with my kids in tow!
I have a 7, 6, 2 and 10 month old. Can you imagine all 5 of us in a fitting room? No one sits still. No one cooperates. And mommy gets to strip down naked in front of her older kids who now actually care. Negative! Taking a 1 or 2 year old shopping might be okay. Taking 1 or 2 kids might be okay. But for me, I just can't do it. I can't concentrate. I can't think. And most times I end up leaving the store without buying anything. Stitch fix is great because a box is delivered to the comfort of your own home, you have time to go to your own room. Model the clothes in front of your own mirror. And you don't feel rushed or stressed as you look through everything.
I like keeping up with the trends!
Call me crazy, but I like to look nice. Yes, even stay at home moms care how they look. I've always had a passion for fashion and now even more so I like to look presentable when we go out as a family on a field trip, when we head out to church, and on date nights! I like my figure and I want to dress appropriately. What I love about stitch fix is that your personal stylist listens to the survey that you fill out when you sign up. I wrote very specifically that I do not want cleavage showing. I also wrote that I want bright colors because I tend to buy lots of blacks and grays. I also can let her know if I have an event coming up like a photo shoot, or a wedding, or that we are about to celebrate my daughters birthday and will be hosting a big party. She takes all of those things into consideration and adds pieces in each box that are geared to not only your style and size, but the event you are planning.
I love the idea of having my very own stylist!
How cool is it when someone goes shopping with you and they honestly tell you how you look in the clothes you try on and they recommend the perfect outfit for your body type? It is a rare and unique gift. The women at Stitch Fix have a great ability in really listening to what you say you need and are looking for and put outfits together in a trendy way. They also give you a spread sheet with how to mix and match the pieces they send you. I save these sheets and keep them in my closet or next to my mirror so the next time I put together an outfit I try to mimic the ideas they give. It's amazing how adding a piece of jewelry or a jean jacket can totally give your outfit a new look.
