Stitch Fix-the beginning!

So yeah, I haven't really been around much. I've been busy with moving, a newborn, getting the new house put together, etc. And thebakingbeauties.com have been wonderful in supplying so many recipes that I've needed!

Because I've been so busy and now have two little boys, I really don't have time to go shopping and try on new clothes. But now I'm coming to terms with the fact that many of the clothes in my closet really should go, some because they don't fit so well now, some because, well, having clothes in the closet from high school when now a mom of two is just kind of odd. But what mom has time to try on clothing with a toddler and a newborn? And I hate being in a fitting room, and trying to imagine if the top I'm trying on would match with what I have at home, and matching colors and such. Then I saw on facebook about this new thing called Stitch Fix.

Stitch Fix is this new thing (at least to me) that is a well thought out, brilliant idea. Upon signing up with it, you get a stylist assigned to you, you give them your sizes, style preferences, etc, and they then send you 5 items that they think you'll like. This covers tops, bottoms, skirts, dresses, bags, accessories, etc. After receiving them in the mail, you get 3 days to try them on with what you own, decide what you like and what you don't like. Figure out what fits well and what doesn't. You then pay online for what you want to keep and put the things you don't want to keep in the pre-paid bag they send you and toss it in the mail. Done deal! Easy, fun and up to date styles. (which, for me, is a good thing. Because I tend to stick in my comfy fashion rut) Set the price ranges to what you want, as high or low as you prefer, and set how often you receive your fix.

Oh, Stitch Fix, how I already love thee!

Earlier this week I got my first Stitch Fix box! And boy, do I love it! I had left a note for my stylist, letting her know that I'm the mom of a toddler and a newborn, so I needed the clothes to be comfortable, practical and nursing friendly. Hannah did a great job!

I really liked this top a lot. It's my style and color, but alas, for my shoulders are broader than the cut.
Filbert 3/4 Sleeve Popover Blouse, Black  

I loved this top. Soft, cuddly, great color!
Sawyer Space Dye Dolman Sleeve Knit Top, Burgundy 

Another lovely pick. Again though, it was a bit too tight in the shoulders.
Sad. I really liked the style.
Layle Shirred Shoulder Button-Up Blouse, Red

I liked this one a lot. It's not my typical style or pattern, but that's good.
Dominic Honeycomb Printed Shirt Dress, Navy and white 

Another dress I really liked. Soft and comfy!
Mollee Dolman Sleeve Striped Dress, Gray tones
I'll be keeping the burgundy knit top and the honeycomb dress and ask that they send either the striped dress again or something similar. Definitely a great new addiction!
