I have to admit that sometimes I’m behind on the trends. There are times that I jump on board with something 18 months after everyone is talking about it. It’s like when people finally get into deal-a-day sites and subscription boxes now when they were at their peak like 3 years ago. If I were a teenager, I would tell myself, “that was SO 2012!”. While I wouldn’t recommend subscription boxes of trinkets and trash, I would encourage you to take a look at the fashion haul boxes that can spice up your wardrobe.
One of the trends I just discovered up close and personal is the fashion subscription boxes like Stitch Fix. Full disclosure: I am not a fashion blogger and will never be a fashion blogger. I just don’t have the fashion sense that it requires and honestly have no desire to be that. I’m just a mom trying to figure out what styles look good on me so that I don’t keep my current fashion trend rolling of “hot mess casual mom”.
After hearing bloggers, friends and family members rave about Stitch Fix, I decided it was my turn to try it. My sister-in-law loves it so much that she is on her 26th box! If that isn’t reason enough to try it, I don’t know what is. Even after our BG editor explained to everyone what Stitch Fix is and why she loves it back in February, it still took me 3 months to sign up for my first box.
If you aren’t familiar with Stitch Fix, I highly recommend jumping over to Gretchen’s post and she’ll tell you exactly how it works.
So, I signed up last month and just received my very first box on Friday, and I have to admit that while it wasn’t perfect, I am smitten! One of the shirts is my new favorite shirt and that is all that it takes! Win!! I’m so excited for my next box to arrive next month!
I was so excited about this first box that I decided to share the opening with you in a Baby Gizmo video!
If you want to try out Stitch Fix fashion haul for yourself (and I highly recommend it now that I’ve tried it), please use my referral link – Stitch Fix Sign Up.

Thanks for posting a video about Stitch Fix. I may try it now as I've been very curious. In all honesty, I liked all the items that were sent to you. Stripes are slimming if they are the right size stripe and are on the right fabric. I do agree that the long sleeve might be too warm but would be cute in the fall/winter with some boots. I look forward to seeing more of your videos regarding Stitch Fix!
PS. Another great store to try that caters to women, especially to busy moms, is Evereve.com. They have several stores in the Chicago area, MN, and MI, not sure about in NC, but you should check what they are all about online. Love that store and they help style you and also entertain your little ones so you can shop and try on clothes in peace.
