stitch fix october (oh dear, the ‘selfie’)

 ok, sweeties.  here we go…

stitch fix is awesome.  
(they are not paying me to say that by the way!!!)

i live on a very teeny budget when it comes to clothing.  i almost always shop from the target clearance rack.  seriously.

hello, stitch fix!  
remember i mentioned it in this post a few weeks ago?  it was certainly a good find!  a big thank you to angelique of where the piggy toes go for introducing me, and now, i’m passing along this sweet find to you!

it’s super simple.

this link will take you to stitch fix.  
once you sign up, you will answer a ton of questions regarding your style and what you are looking for…apparel, jewelry, accessories, outerwear…all of the above!


you’ll pick your price range.  
(note mine is ‘the cheaper, the better’).  

you’ll set your date.  (i would recommend that you don’t put it off too long, b/c they’re already booking into december!)  i subscribed for a monthly ‘fix’, so i’ll receive a package every 30 days.  as you can see in the pictures i’ve uploaded for you, you can reschedule or cancel your shipment at any time.  you don’t have to become a monthly subscriber.  you can order whenever you want!

here are a few screenshots of some of the questions you’ll be asked to answer in order to give your personal stylist a better idea of your wants, needs, tastes, and size…

 and here is what i received!  
it was like christmas morning for this mama…



normally, i wouldn’t have taken the time to try either of these on in a store, but this process gave me an opportunity to try new things and diverse styles.  i was really surprised at how much i liked everything!



that’s supposed to say ‘gorgeous and soft’, and boy, was it ever!  i really, really liked everything about the dolman top.  i nixed it b/c the hubby liked another better, and he’s got the paycheck.  😉

and on each piece, you’ll find a ‘polyvore-style’ tag that offers outfit inspiration!  love.

i apologize for the pics – i did this on the hubster’s phone.  
(our new camera is coming from new zealand or australia…pray it’s not a scam for our sake.  mama really misses having a camera.)

i swooned over the hot raspberry color of this next top, and it was the least expensive item in the box, so i was really wanting to keep it.  had it been the longer length all of the way around, i would’ve kept it in a heartbeat.

i especially liked the neckline and button embellishments.  after having three babies, my arms are my only assets!  ha!  (and you get to tell them in the questionnaire which body parts you want to show off or keep hidden. 
my belly and i like that option a lot.)

these skinny jeans were incredibly soft.  like,  ‘i want to make a teddy bear out of you or a pillowcase’ soft.  so.soft.  did i mention that they were soft?  oh man, they were soft.  they were too long, which was good, b/c they were out of the price range that i was looking for, so the length made our ‘good-bye’ a little easier.  so soft… *sigh*


this one.  he loved this one, and so did i, so the choice was easy!  it was so soft too.  i like soft.  haha

so, let’s talk money.
you will pay a $20 stylist fee upfront.  
that $20 will go towards your final purchase.  if you don’t want to purchase anything, your $20 will remain a stylist fee.

if you consider that someone is doing the work behind the sceens…looking into your LinkedIn profile, your pinterest boards (if you choose to make those available to them), and searching out items specifically for you, it really is a great deal.  plus, it goes towards your purchase, so you’re not paying for the clothes and a separate fee on top!

if you choose to purchase the entire box, 
you’ll receive a 25% discount.  
to help you understand what that looks like…
the jeans in my box alone were $88, but if i wanted the whole sha-bang, i would’ve paid $210 for the whole box (5 items).  the value of my box was $300, so that’s a $90 difference – essentially, a ‘free’ pair of jeans!

i told you that i am on a teeny budget, though, so i was looking to stay as close to $50 as possible.  the hi-lo pink blouse was $38, so it would’ve just cost me an additional $18, had i chosen it.

the sweater i did choose would have easily cost me around $70-$80 at a retailer like the limited, for example, but i ended up paying $58 (my $20 fee and $38 tonight), which i think is fair for a sweater of such uniqueness and high quality.  

all of the shipping is already included.  

the brands are unique and new, and most of my items were made in the usa, which i love!

probably every question you could think of is addressed on their faq page, so go on and take a peek!  

and if you have any questions for me, i’d be happy to talk about it with you further!

so there you have it!  it’s soooo simple.  
it’s a blast to skip the craziness of the mall and just try pieces on at your own pace.  my husband watched football while i played dress-up, and the kids were in bed, so it was heavenly!

if you use this link, i will receive a referral credit, and guess what i want to do…share!!!

if i receive any referral credit $$ from sharing this awesome company with you, i plan to turn it into a giveaway!  depending on the amount, if any, i will offer a gift card or a piece from my next fix!  why not share the love?!  so if you end up signing up through my link, let me know!  and i’ll return the love!  be blessed to be a blessing…be a blessing, be blessed!  here’s the link again to get started.  

enjoy!!!  please share your experience and feedback with me!  have fun! xoxoxo
