April 2013 Stitch Fix Round Up: What’s in their Fixes?

I got my Fix #10 yesterday (my May fix)! 

I had to drive through nasty rain trying to get home in time, so I could pick up the package from my apartment office. I can get a little crazy with my commute back from work when I know that my Fix is waiting.  But I did make it back in time and got the Fix!  Had a lot of fun trying on the clothes yesterday, still doing some of that today.  Lol.  I can’t decide what to keep.  Will post more about that soon! 🙂

Check out what the other bloggers got in their fixes in March and April! (Below are links. They didn’t turn blue!  Why?  Turn blue, wordpress blog!  I still don’t completely understand this thing!)

I’m obsessed with checking out what’s in other people’s boxes! It’s so much fun to compare.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I do 🙂

Pretty Prints & Patterns

Recently, I’ve been in a prints & patterns kick. 

But I was in a rut. I wanted something different, but I didn’t know where to find it.  I’ve been to those stores in the mall a thousand times.  Online is not any better, since I can only go to websites that I already know! 

So I figured I’m gonna let Stitch Fix  help me!

Hey, if I’m gonna sign up to have a stylist pick out clothes for me, why not ask for something I can’t find on my own?

There are plenty of Gap stores around here. I want something different!

So in all my fixes, I’d been asking for prints and patterns, please!  

Here’s the roundup of the pretty prints & pattern pieces that Stitch Fix helped me find so far.

Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival

While I was writing my last post, I realized that the last two tops I bought from Stitch Fix were floral print tops.

It was no coincidence! Spring is in the air, and flowers are on my mind!

This reminded me of last spring when I went to Epcot for the International Flower & Garden Festival. It’s definitely the most romantic time of the year at Epcot!

In the Beginning,

I’ve always loved fashion.

But that doesn’t mean I knew how to dress myself.  I was one of those people who bought clothes/shoes/accessories in pieces. Then I ended up with lots of things that didn’t go together.  Always wondered how other people did it.  Did they think about how it would go with something they already had before they bought? 

My inability to style was aggravated by my first ‘real’ job. I wore standard black pants and a plain, white dress shirt to work.  

I felt a complete loss of identity!  

I spent countless hours online after work looking for clothes.  But where?  Everything seemed to be either casual college wear or 40′s something power suit. Where’s something in the middle?  Where’s something young, stylish, fun, yet appropriate for work?

I know part of the problem was me!  There are probably plenty of clothes out there that can be styled for my age.  But I don’t know how.  I need help! 

That’s when I serendipitously stumbled upon a blog about Stitch Fix.

Stitch Fix is a fashion styling company that send you happiness in a box!

Each time you request a Fix, they charge $20 styling fee and send you a boxful of mysterious clothes accompanied by styling cards (perfect for me!  And I actually learn from these!), showing how you can style the piece. You keep and pay for what you want and send back the ones you don’t.

In a way I think Stitch Fix is kinda like Netflix for clothes.  But Instead of ‘suggesting’ what movies you might like, they’re trying to predict what kind of clothes you’ll love!

When I knew my Stitch Fix was coming, I’d drive home with butterflies, wondering what surprise was in store for me.

Since October, Stitch Fix has been supplying me with boxes of clothes. And what started out as my quest to dress better for work has morphed into dressing better in general.  I’m no longer just looking for work clothes. I keep getting my Fix because I like surprises in a box!

I’m officially addicted.  I need my Fix NOW!!!
