Stitch Fix #5: My Mother's Day Box

What gets a husband out of shopping for his wife? Well, that's easy, Stitch Fix! When my husband and kids go shopping for me, I always end up returning most of it. My husband has been so stressed out, I suggested a box just for mommy.

What is Stitch Fix? Stitch Fix is a personal styling company that sends you 5 pieces of clothing and/or accessories. You simply send back what you don't want and keep what you do. If you keep all 5 pieces, you receive a 25% discount. If you keep nothing, you pay a $20 styling fee. The best part is the customer service is amazing. Also, make sure you have a Pinterest board that you create for style so your stylist can learn your likes.

Mother's Day was only a week or two away when I decided to request a box. Let me tell you, this is a hot company and the first box I could get would have been in June. Already knowing that they have excellent customer service, I dropped Stitch Fix an email stating that it was Mother's Day and I really wanted a box. Customer service made that happen for me. My box would arrive the day before Mother's Day. Since we have a turd mail lady on the weekends, I think she was too lazy to get out of her truck, so my box arrived the day after Mother's Day. It was all good. It gave me another day to anticipate it's arrival. On a side note, please feel free to pin anything I got to your very own style board.

Let me begin by saying, it's just easier to take selfies. By the time my husband gets home, I'm in pajamas with my hair in a pony-tail. I'm in my daughter's room because the lighting was better.

Nikky Striped Faux Wrap Jersey Dress
I was really hoping to receive this dress in navy or red because I received a dress last month in the same exact color. Once I put it on, I loved it. It was very figure flattering and soft. I kept it.
Franky Airy Knit Cardigan
I wasn't sure about this cardigan. It was so light and delicate. I didn't like it combined with anything that Haley sent me. My husband had a fantastic idea. He thought it would be great as a swimsuit cover-up. So, out came my bikini to see how it looked. I loved it. It added a delicate, lovely touch to my beachwear. I kept it!
Montgomery Chevron Cross-Front Top
I'm madly in love with this top. I'm wearing my jeans I received in my fix last month. I plan on wearing this shirt with a black skirt. I think you can dress it up or keep it simple. I really like that it doesn't show too much cleavage so I can wear it to more traditional events. I kept this one. The only thing I'm slightly worried about is the hem. It keeps showing on it. I'm not sure if it's a defect. I'm not worried since I know Stitch Fix will treat me right.
Brisha Cut Out Knit Top
As soon as my eyes spotted this top, I was in love! I put it on and didn't love it as much, but was still in love. It's a keeper!

Durango Cross Back Blouse
When I saw this shirt, I was slightly worried. I don't do well in white. I always end up staining it. My stylist sent this top specifically to go with the jeans in the picture. First of all, I hated that the top was sheer. I have a tank top under it. Second, the back is slit open. Now, this shirt would be totally sexy if it wasn't see-through but seeing a tank hanging out the back is not attractive. It was cheaper to keep this top than to send it back. So, I sold it on a Stitch Fix group for what I paid for it, so it all worked out.

I'm feeling euphoric with Haley making my clothing decisions. My last two boxes have rocked. Now time to pay some bills and save some money so I can get a box for my favorite holiday, which is The Fourth of July. Sign up for your very own Stitch Fix box!
