I have recently become totally obsessed with Stitch Fix! I have received two Fixes and I am in love.
For those of you who don’t know what Stitch Fix is here is a quick rundown. It is a service that sends you 5 hand -selected gorgeous clothing items that are styled specifically for you by a personal stylist. You create an online profile of your preferences, styles, sizes, and likes/dislikes. Just like magic these 5 items will show up at your doorstep where you get to try them on and keep whichever ones you would like. You can keep any number of items (0-5) but if you choose to purchase all 5 items you receive 25% off your total. When your box ships to you $20 is charged to your credit card but that $20 is credited to anything you purchase from your Fix.
Now some of you may know this but I recently became a Stitch Fix stylist myself. My first Fix was styled by someone else but since I am figuring out what my style is I decided to style myself for this one.
Now, disclaimer, I am not a fashion blogger by any means of the word. I do love clothes. I might look goofy in the poses but hey, you gotta start somewhere (and please ignore the messy closet, I will straighten that up next time, haha)
Truth: I have lost my personal style a little since becoming a mom.
False: Because I am a mom and I am busy and I am curvy and etc…. I do not deserve to look and feel my best.
Truth: Taking care of myself is what is best for me, my family, and my personal world. This does not have to be clothing or material but I do need to cover myself daily so I might as well look good trying.
Clothing isn’t what makes you who you are but fashion is a great way to express your personal self as I am discovering. The joy and anticipation leading up to receiving a Stitch Fix box is powerful and amazing. Wearing a new outfit is enough to lift dark clouds of almost any day. Looking at a picture of yourself an a well fitting and beautiful outfit is such a treasure.
So, with all that said I am going to post pictures of me in my Stitch Fix clothing. I am doing this for a few reasons. As I have been researching the company and trying to rediscover my own personal style (so moving away from mommy sloppy as I affectionately referred to my daily uniform of yoga pants and Costco workout tanks) I realized that posts with pictures are awesome. The other reason is that I think I want to show the world that a curvy girl can do this. Any girl can do this. Any woman can get some fantastic clothing pieces that make them feel great about themselves. Along the way I am sure I will look silly and funny and maybe even cute. If even one of you feels inspired to do a little more for your personal style, I am more than happy to put myself out there.

Now on to the clothes!
Kut From The Kloth Distressed Boyfriend Jean and Market & Spruce Corrina Dolman
I am not sure how I lived with out these jeans in my life. I love this whole look!
Skies are Blue Crochet Detail Top with my Old Navy jeans and Payless boots
I don’t love this top on me. It is gorgeous but it looks a little boxy and unflattering.
Gilli Sebastian Maxi, Target Belt, JCPenny Sandals
Again this is amazing and I love how it shapes me. I feel like an hourglass goddess in this.
Margaret M Emer Cropped Trouser, Target wedges and JCPenny henley
I am torn about these. They are too long for me and too big but way comfy.
All in all, I think I did a good job. I am for sure keeping three items (KFTK jeans, maxi dress, dolman top) which is great for me. I can go to the store and try on 20+ items and walk out with nothing! I fully would have kept all 5 if I had gotten a size smaller in the trousers (I would still need to hem them, if you look at the picture, my right leg is the correct length and those are rolled twice!). I think it is worth it to hem a really great pair of pants. I have short legs and a longer torso so pants are normally like this for me.
What would you keep if you were me?
Thanks for reading this weeks What to Wear Wednesday! I am thinking up creative new ways to envision this recurring post on my blog. Some will be fashion, some will be makeup, some will lingerie, I may do a bathing suit special (I may not model that one, haha). What would you like to see on these posts?
