(this post has nothing to do with knitting!)
I have been thinking about my wardrobe quite a bit lately. I am getting annoyed with much of it. I am tired of everything in my closet. There is a lot that doesn't fit, since I have had my kids and as I work from home, I haven't needed to update much of it. I have picked up a few things here and there, but I know I am not always the most fashionable and, honestly, I don't really like clothes shopping. It takes more time and effort than I am willing to put in and in the end usually costs more than I want. When I heard about StitchFix, I had to give it a shot.
StitchFix is an online service where you answer several style preference and sizing questions. There is a $20 service fee for StitchFix to gather a box of 5 options for you of a variety of pieces. Once you receive the box you have 3 days to try on the items and decide if you want to keep them or send them back (and the $20 is credited toward your purchase). My first box arrived today (a day earlier than expected) and it proved to be quite interesting. What did I get? 2 shirts, 2 tanks and a pair of earrings. What's going back? Everything except one of the tanks.
Will I request another StitchFix? Yes - I liked the element of surprise in having someone else select items for me. I did fill out their survey to provide my feedback on each of the pieces, so I hope that future boxes would have more items I love. You can sign up for a monthly box or as you need "a fix". If you think you might give it a try, here's a link (and yes, if you sign up and get a box, I'll get a credit.)
