[I was hoping to have this post up earlier this morning! But when I saw 2am on the clock + I still needed to pack for a week of vacation, my pillow called. Oops! If you’re wondering why I have a problem with hoarding tshirts, check out yesterday’s post!]

 

I learned a little something yesterday.

Well, a few things, I guess.

I realized that I haven’t gone shopping in a grab-items-I-would-never-maybe-wear-and-try-them-on-just-because-I-can-and-I-have-time-to shopped..since Harlow was born. And while I’m not complaining, I learned today that a girl of any age still has fun playing dress up.  + oh I cannot wait until Harlow is playing dress up + wearing the most ridiculous things.

Yesterday I also learned that I could shop during nap time + actually try stuff on.  Yes.  StitchFix is genius, well, whoever dreamed it up, is a genius!

Then, there was this weird feeling that came over me.  Seven or so years ago I got a tattoo.  [hold the judgement.] I was warned prior to getting it that they’re addicting.  I thought for sure that was bunk.  Then I found myself, while someone was tattooing that permanent skin-sticker on me, thinking + planning what my next tatto would be.  Where it would be.  Can anyone relate?

Well anyway.  Want to know a secret?  I kind of want another fix to arrive from StitchFix…today!  + while my cleaning-during-naptime suffered, this mama had some fun trying on new clothes!  And I can’t wait to show y’all what I’ve decided to keep + what I’ll be sending back!

So, without further ado!

Well, maybe I do have an ado [what does that phrase even mean, anyway?] I took *ahem* a lot of photos.  oops!  So I tried to cull through them + combine them …. but let’s throw this into the why-this-isn’t-a-DIY-tutorial-blog category: y’all, this is not my strong suit!! But I sure had fun playing dress up!

So this arrived. + I was very excited to go shopping during naptime!

A few more AWESOME things about StitchFix!  1. You get a new little goodie with each fix! My first item was this package of post-it notes! HUZZAH! And 2. If you purchase everything in your fix, you get 25% off!  And don’t forget: your $20 styling fee is taken out of anything you purchase!
Remember? free personal shopper + stylist … in the comfort of your own home! 

This box was the first thing I pulled out! It was a “Minty Fresh” deal, where I could purchase the top, OPI nail polish + earrings for a discounted price! While the discount was great, the shirt [for me!]….was not.  See below.

EEKS! Yeah. No. Not so much!

But then I saw the next dress… + I hoped it would be as cute on me as I envisioned it!  They nailed it!

I’m planning on keeping this one, what do y’all think??

One thing I was very nervous about was getting items of clothing that I typically wouldn’t even try on … but then trying on them on at home + still having NO IDEA WHAT TO WEAR WITH THEM!

Scary, right?

Well, for each garment, they provide styling tips!  I [clearly] don’t have half of the items they recommend, but it helped me put the whole look together!

While I really do like this dress, it’s just not me!  It’s a little too babydoll-fairy-like for my taste.

What do y’all think??

Okay! This one excites me!! Y’all, I would never typically grab this color off the shelf!! I’m not a kelly-green fan, but my husband sure is!  So he’s a big fan of this top!  It’s sheer, so I wasn’t sure how I felt about having to always wear a tank or something underneath it, but the minute I put it on, I knew it would be a keeper.

Andy saw it, and he agreed!

You can see that our bedroom gets progressively messier + messier + messier as I keep grabbing-all-the-things to try on with each piece!!

Is it weird that I’m totally digging how it falls low in the back?

This one is a win: you agree? or am I crazy!?

Don’t tell Andy, but I tried it on with my favorite cardigan. :o]

Next I pulled out this bright blue skirt!  It was super girly, and I loved it…but didn’t quite love it.

Know what I mean?  Where there is just something meh about it?  I think this skirt on my sister – she’s about 3″ taller than I am – would be great.  I just feel like it cuts my legs off at an awkward spot.

Not planning on keeping this one!  Thoughts?

I haven’t carried any bag or purse other than my diaper bag in so long! I was happy to see my little luggage tag, from my days of traveling each + every week!

The aftermath of dress up time. Don’t worry: I cleaned it all up!  [And of course I took all of 2 photos on the DSLR….yay for self portraits with an iPhone!]

So what do y’all think!?  I’m really excited about the green top: it’s definitely not something I would normally pick out!  When I tried on everything for Andy, he said [with a smile on his face] I haven’t seen you getting dressed up like this in a while.  la sigh.  I’m excited to start dressing like I care again!

Also?  amazing how much more productive I am when I *cough cough* shower, put on make up and do my hair!  Oh, and possibly change out of yoga clothes.  *looks down at yoga pants bashfully* oops!

Remember you can go sign up for a fix of your own!  Shipping is free both ways, and the questionnaire is fun to fill out! I’ll definitely be changing a few of my answers: I played it safe, and I’m excited to define a few areas, but also let my shopper [Thanks Mary!] have a bit more fun next time!

If you get a fix, PLEASE email/leave a comment if you post about it!! I want to see the goods!

Edited to Add: As part of your style questionnaire that you will fill out for your fix [you can update + change for each fix!! And you can just get 1 fix! there is no monthly subscription or commitment!] – you will answer price questions! How much would you pay/normally pay for outerwear, jeans, dress, skirt, etc.  Just an FYI! :O] + another reason by StitchFix is so great!

Edited again to add: there is also a comments section in the questionnaire! say what you’re thinking! What’s your highest price point?  What do you for sure NOT want.  The more you tell them about what you want/afford/like/hate, the better your fix will be!

 I can’t wait to hear about y’all’s fixes from StitchFix!

+ remember, tomorrow is Summer Friday!  I have some cute photos from this week, can’t wait to see yours!
