Since becoming a nomad, again, in November, I took a break from Stitch Fix. We don’t have an address and I didn’t want to take the chance of having something sent if our plans changed. Plans did change and I’m glad I didn’t schedule one for a while.
When I knew we’d be spending some time at my wonderful In-Laws’, I scheduled a Fix. I’m so glad I did. Gillian didn’t disappoint, yet again.
Since cutting Facebook ties, I’ve literally felt a monstrous weight off my shoulders. I’ve had more time to work on NEW projects for my shop and soon I’ll be debuting them. My shop’s main focus has always been centered on Military Pride, and I’m working on introducing some organizing tools that will help military families, civilian families too, keep things tidy on a day-to-day basis. I’m really excited to share them with you… stay tuned.
Speaking of organizing. I’ve been doing a lot more of it. I’ll be posting about that, hopefully, this week. Since we’ll be PCSing (Permanent Change of Station, a grand ol’ military acronym for moving) at the end of the year, we, and I really mean I, need to make sure we’re as prepared as possible.
Our little guy is growing up far too quickly, as they do. He doesn’t say much but he is plum full of mischief. He’s enjoying preschool and loves his teachers a ton.
My fourth fix arrived a bit later than usual this month because of a technical problem, but once it did arrive, I was very happy with it. On to the Fix.
I signed up for a subscription with Stitch Fix three months ago and while I can’t say I’ve loved everything they’ve sent, I can say I love the service. Especially after my recent fix. It arrived yesterday afternoon and I was just able to unbox it this morning and try everything on.
I mentioned Stitch Fix in my last post and my first “Fix” arrived this afternoon. I was so excited, I only took one picture of the box and then ripped it open.
First up: A beautiful 41Hawthorn Abrianna Longsleeve Knit Cardigan. I absolutely love the color. It’s also lightweight so it’ll be perfect for layering in the spring and summer. This is a keeper. At $48.00, it’s not bad on the pocketbook either.
Next: Ellison Davis Leopard Print Button-Up Cardigan. Not all to fond of animal print. It screams “Old lady” to me. This one is going back. $68.00
Next: Under Skies Briella Embroidery Detailed Peasant Tank. This will be great to layer with a jacket or wear on its own. I’ll be wearing this a ton in Guam. $54.00
Next: 41Hawthorn Adrienne Lightweight Dragonfly Print Infinity Scarf. Love the colors and I’m a huge fan of scarves. $28.00
Last but not least: Kensie Jeans Johnny Skinny Jeans. My stylist “Jill” must have been reading my mind. I’ve been wanting/needing another pair of skinny jeans. And these ones fit great!!! LOVE THEM!!! $88.00
I can’t wait for my next Fix to arrive. From what I’ve read, each Fix gets better and better.
I’d love to see what you’ve received in your first Fix. Have you signed up? If not, I’d love for you to use my referral link. 🙂
Since moving to Maine, we’ve seen a lot of snow. And I mean, A LOT OF SNOW!!! I’m told by quite a few people that this has been one of the worst winters they’ve ever seen. With the bitter cold and all that white frozen stuff outside, we’ve spent a large amount of our time inside keeping warm.
This has given me lots of hours to organize and reorganize our belongings. We only have a couple of boxes left and for the most part are settled. Thankfully, I’ve met several wonderful people. Our new command has been very welcoming, even though we’re not technically attached yet, which has been nice. I’ve always been a very active participant in our Family Readiness Group (FRG) and didn’t want that to be any different once we got here.
I’ve also been working on more pieces for my shop. It’s so much fun introducing new things and I look forward to sharing them with you.
I also delve into Ancestry.com almost everyday too. It’s somewhat of an addiction for me. I’ve traced my ancestry clear back to the 1600’s and its sooooo fascinating. My Grandmother gave me a book about my ancestry which I’ve been transcribing into my “tree” online. It’s truly amazing seeing what I have on paper connect with what I find online.
I’ve also just recently found Stitch Fix. Have you heard about this? It’s an amazing concept. Stitch Fix is a subscription service that sends you clothes and accessories. While I do love to shop, I truly HATE stepping into dressing rooms. I often find myself buying something in a couple of sizes, bringing them home, and returning what doesn’t fit. Or, in some cases returning both sizes if I don’t like how it looks on me. It’s also not easy to try things on with a two-year-old.
Stitch Fix to the rescue. All you do is create your “style profile”. Your profile consists of choosing things you like and dislike, giving your sizes, and linking to a “style” Pinterest Board (if you have one you’d like to share with your stylist). Once you’ve completed your profile, you select your delivery date for your first fix. You can choose to receive a “fix” once, monthly, or at any time you choose. Once you complete your “fix” profile, your own stylist gets to work selecting five hand-picked items based on your style profile. It’s mailed to you with a handy card with styling tips, a prepaid envelope to return what you don’t like, and if you decide to buy everything you were sent, you save 25%. How awesome is that?
I just received an email today stating my “fix” was shipped. I’m so excited for it to arrive. I’ll be sure to share it with you when it arrives. And take pictures, of course. Check out more about Stitch Fix and I would totally love love love it if you used my referral link. 😉
Going to get back to transcribing more of my genealogy.
