Have you ever tried shopping with a 4 year old boy? If you answered yes, then what I’m about to tell you is nothing new. Four year-old boys hate shopping. Unless of course you are buying toys for them, you’re basically screwed.
As you shop for shirts he will yank them off hangers. He will hide under clothing racks. He will loudly point at bra’s and ask, “what’s that Mommy?” He will scream to go to the toy department and if you let go of his hand for a moment he will bolt off in search of the toy aisle. He will ask if he can get “just one toy, please”. And answering “no” will result in an epic tantrum and lots of pouting.
And you will bribe and plead and beg for him to let you just look for one minute. And when you’ve finally accepted that this is not happening. That you will never try on clothes in a store again.As you are dragged out of the store and desperate to just get home and pour a glass of wine, your son will mention that he needs to pee and you will be racing back into the store past all the pretty things that you are not bringing home with you.

Here are a few of the items that I’ve gotten from Stitch Fix and loved.
The Just Black jeans are Made in the USA, which makes me smile and Stitch Fix does a fabulous job of finding jeans that fit the short girl. And if you’re a short girl like me you know the struggle to find jeans that fit is real.
I love the blue and yellow plaid scarf, it’s versatile, super soft and it dresses up a plain T-shirt. A great scarf can turn a blah outfit into a fun new look. And it’s great for when you work 2 days a week and don’t want people to realize you are wearing the same navy sweater you wore last week, cause, uh your work wardrobe is lacking.
I know you’re thinking surely Stitch Fix picks can’t all be hits, and it’s true there have been some misses. But I think they get my style right more often than they get it wrong and they do just as good of a job of picking out clothes for me as I do. I also like that they make me push the envelope a little. They send me items that I might not be drawn to on my own and because they are in my home I’m compelled to try them out.
The items that aren’t a fit for me, get sent back in the postage paid envelope that I put in my mailbox. No trip to the post office or to a store to make returns.
For me Stitch Fix is a total sanity saver and keeps me feeling stylish.
