Stitch Fix Review

I started a monthly subscription to Stitch Fix several months ago. I have adult children now and felt like I could finally afford to provide myself a much needed updated wardrobe. The clothes I had been wearing to work each day were of poor quality and several years old. 
I remember my daughter coming into my closet and pulling several pieces out and stating how long I had been wearing them. She had recently graduated from high school and some prices she remembered me wearing when she was in elementary school. So I decided to give Stitch Fix a try. The hope was to find clothes that helped me look more professional and stylish.

Cost:
When Stitch Fix sends you a box they charge you up front a $20 styling fee. The good thing about the fee is it is applied to anything you purchase. So, as long as you purchase something from the box, you don't lose you $20 dollar styling fee. 
The cost of the clothes varies tremendously based on what you style preferences are. I personally have cheaper the better choosen for my style picks. I have purchased several items ranging from an $80 blazer to a $30 blouse. Pants seem to run around the $50-$60 range typically. I have found several of the items have become some of my favorites and I wear them quite often. I recently just purchased a pair of Sperry shoes for $60 that will become an everyday favorite with jeans.
Fix
Stitch Fix calls the box of items your "Fix". An email will be sent to you right before the stylist picks your items asking for any notes. I use this place to list what I want and what I don't want. I have found after several boxes the more I formation I give the better the Fix is for me. No cardigans, no sleeveless tops, but still in need of professional work tops is my usually message. Recently I asked for clothes for my upcoming vacation in Florida. My husband laughed when I told him about my notes. He couldn't believe I asked specifically for Florida clothes. I questioned why not? If that is what I want, then why not ask for exactly what I want. 
The Fix comes with five pieces each time. At first I felt like this was plenty but now I wish there were more items each month. Since it only comes once monthly, I always crave having more than five choices. I get they have to pay for the return shipping and more pieces would cost more in shipping charges. 

My style
My style has improved drastically since starting Stitch Fix. I have received several compliments from coworkers on my clothes. One said let me see what top you have on today, you have the cutest tops. I said they are all Stitch Fix. She was surprised and intrigued. My stylist has sent several pieces that I have kept that I would have never bought myself had I went to a store looking for clothes. It has opened my mind to new patterns and cuts. I even kept a work skirt that I would have never in a million years dreamed of wearing. I actually love it and feel like a million bucks in it. 

Discount
If you end up liking the entire Fix they give you a 25% discount of buying the entire Fix. I have ended up doing this several times. Usually after wanting to keep a few of the items it only makes sense to keep the entire box. My last Fix had a pair of Silver shorts for $60, athletic shorts for $35 and Sperry shoes for $60. The other two items ended up costing me little of nothing because the entire Fix was $165. 

Referral Code
After you sign up you can share you referral code with friends and family. They get a $25 credit off their first Fix and so do you for each referral. Want to give it a try, use my code and get yourself a credit.

Fit
I have always had a hard time finding clothes to fit just right. I am short and quite busty in the chest. Somehow these clothes come and fit perfect. I know you send in your measurements but it's crazy the pants, skirts, shirts they all fit. I have had a few items I felt were too snug in the chest area but overall I am amazed by the job the stylist has done to get clothes that fit. 

Returns 
Returns are simple! They provide you with a paid USPS shipping bag each Fix to return any unwanted items. You simply put your items inside, seal, and drop in the mail. How easy! 

Overall thoughts
I plan on continuing the service. I love getting clothes each month mailed straight to my house. Especially during this time of a pandemic it made updating my professional wardrobe painless.

CBD Oil and Josie week 10

Well, it's been a while since I wrote an update. In the beginning the changes were fast and easily noticeable. I think we have now reached our plateau. It would be hard to keep writing weekly updates as there aren't many changes from week to week now. I may continue with monthly updates instead.  Labs are prone to bad hips and lose some of their mobility as they age. I watched the loss with a previous lab we owned and eventually he had to be put down. He was 16 years old but his mind was still viable. Putting a dog down who stills understands what you are saying but lacks the ability to even stand anymore is one of the most heartbreaking things I have ever done. Experience is key in life! After we went through it, we made a decision to do the things needed to alivaite some of that pain and suffering for our next dog. No matter the cost! I remind myself, I went and chose Josie, she didn't come pick me out. I owe her the best life I am able to emotionally,  physic

CBD and Josie Week 1

My dog Josie is a 7 year old lab that has started showing her age.  Within the last year after we would go for long walks she would spend the rest of the day laying around sore and tired.  She showed extreme discomfort.  She would want to jump up places and lack the ability to do so.  Her level of play had decreased tremendously.  Her mind would want to run and play fetch but her body would tell her otherwise.  Just after a few rounds of fetch she would retrieve and walk to the door telling us she was done. A week ago we decided to try something new for her.  We have some family that runs a CBD oil shop.  After consulting with them and doing some research on our own, we decided this was worth a shot for our Josie girl.  Though we have only given Josie the oil once a day for a week, I want to say we have seen small changes in her mood.  I want to keep an on going journal of her progress as we try this CBD oil out.  After week one: She shows signs of discomf

CBD a year later

So here we are almost a year later, how is the CBD treatments going? I updated a previous blog with updated information.  After a year most thoughts I had a year ago are still the same.  Remember these feelings I posted months back? Labs are prone to bad hips and lose some of their mobility as they age. I watched the loss with a previous lab we owned and eventually he had to be put down. He was 16 years old but his mind was still viable. Putting a dog down who stills understands what you are saying but lacks the ability to even stand anymore is one of the most heartbreaking things I have ever done. Experience is key in life! After we went through it, we made a decision to do the things needed to reduce some of that pain and suffering for our next dog. No matter the cost! I remind myself, I went and chose Josie, she didn't come pick me out. I owe her the best life I am able to emotionally,  physically, and financially give her.  Yes still strongly feel the same way. We h

Scout's passing, my first heartbreak.

Three years ago my son came back from his freshman year of college and decided he wanted to take a different career path other than college.  After being home a month he decided he was ready to get his own dog. We had a 5 year old lab and didn't think we wanted another dog in the home. We tried and tried to talk my son out of getting a dog. My son is kind of impulsive, does things, and never really thinks anything through. He went one afternoon and picked out a 10 week old lab that some people had leftover from a litter. Since he was already 10 weeks old, they had dropped the price dramatically to just $125 for a full yellow lab. June 2018 Scout became a part of our family whether my husband or I were ready. It is hard not to love a puppy but we both knew the struggles coming with training, house breaking, and chewing.  My son being a 19 year old who thought he knew everything quickly realized how little he knew and how stubborn Scout could be. I had never seen a dog dr

CBD and Josie week 4

We have reached the four week mark of testing CBD oil out on our 7 year old lab Josie.  I will start this blog by saying I am so glad we decided to try this treatment. I feel like we enabled our dog to continue doing the things we think brings her the most joy. What are those things?  Long walks  on conservation land. Before the treatment, we would have passed on taking her mushroom hunting through the wooded areas. The physical demands of navigation through the terrain and length of activity would have been too much for her. Seriously, she would have gotten tired and quit. I mean sit down and quit. We took her walking and mushroom hunting both days this weekend.  We would have never dreamed of asking this of her a month ago. Instead she would have been left at home to sleep her day away. The CBD oil treatment has given her freedom again. She was always a dog we took everywhere with us. It broke my heart when we had to start leaving her at home.  We would tell ourselves we

Confessions of a dance mom 1

I spent 13 years in the competitive dance world. Man I have got a lot to say after 13 years. I watched so many things evolve, change, become better, and always become worse. I will break this into several small sessions to hit many topics without writing a book each blog. So session 1? What else besides the dance, duh. When we started dance 13 years ago, my daughter was 4 years old.  She is now 19 years old and a student at AMDA college in Los Angels getting a Dance Theater Bachelor of Arts Degree. I remember running to my computer at home and watching numerous YouTube videos for the next amazing dance move, costume idea, or song choice.  Back then it was like a guarded secret which YouTube channels had the good stuff.  You see the really competitive parents back then in dance didn't like to share information. Fast forward to today and the information is at everyone's finger tips and easily accessible. It has been quite amazing to watch the world change before my ey
