If you follow me on twitter, instagram or happen to be a Facebook friend, you have seen me gush about Stitch Fix. You may have even seen a pose or two in some of my latest cute acquisitions.
So what is all the fuss?
Stich Fix is a personal stylist service catering to your preferences, budget and desire for overall fashion cuteness in your life. [I am sorely lacking in the skills to get the third on my own.] This is all determined by completing a simple style profile. You give your sizes and opinions, and they set to work.
For $20, which is applied to anything I decide to keep, I am sent a little treasure box of 5 goodies hand selected for me. The thrill of seeing the box with the blue circle is hard to match.
I’m a sucker for cute packaging – especially when it comes with a matching sticker and stationery! Stitch Fix has it in spades, y’al!!
They are pushing me to be a little more adventurous and open minded because I have to try on everything they send. Honestly, I would walk right past most of these items in a store. There have been a few misses, but that’s okay. I’m developing a reference for what works and what doesn’t work. That’s a good thing.
With my current state of self-examination I have to ask myself it this is just more indulgence and convenience controlling my life. As I look back over the past month or so I can say that I have actually been less drawn to frivolous spending and shopping. I have made a few purchases, but they have been completely intentional and part of a bigger picture to simplify. I’m working on paring down my wardrobe – and life in general – to stop wasting time focusing on the inconsequential.
I am not saying that my appearance is inconsequential. To the contrary, I am saying that I should be putting enough thought into my appearance that it actually takes less effort to make decisions and weed through items that I have, but don’t wear. I want my efforts to seem effortless. As with any aspect of our life, this only comes from intention and practice.
For hospitality to seem like second nature, we must practice hospitality. For forgiveness to seem like it is a natural part of our character we must practice forgiveness.
If I want to appear to have confidence and style, I need to practice. Stitch Fix is one of my coaches.
If you are interested, I love for you to check it out for yourself with this link. In full disclosure, if you sign up I get a $25 credit when you receive your first Fix. Then you can also share with others to get credits for yourself. You schedule how often you want a shipment.
I’ve had 2 fixes so far. I’m waiting on the weather to warm up before I go for my third. I also need to get a better handle on what I already have as well. It’s easy to forget what has been sitting in a box all winter between capris and tank tops.
I’d love to know if you’ve tried Stitch Fix before, how it worked for you or if you signed up today. What is your biggest style challenge?
