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 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!
