Hi, I'm Sarah.
Join me in keeping on and beginning again!

I did my hair for you (pictures and Stitch Fix)

Soooooooo I might be the last person in the blogosphere to try Stitch Fix.

And maybe in real life as well. I figured, why do I need a box of expensive clothes sent to me every month when I can just steal Amy’s fixes? {giggle}

But for real. I do not like shopping, I’m not good at shopping, malls and choices and ALL THE THINGS make me feel overwhelmed and crazy. Also, I don’t know what to do with clothes. I don’t know how to wear them in a fashionable way (hence, why I steal Amy’s clothes – she’s super fashionable). I don’t know what necklaces to wear with what shirts, and I’m basically only good at the earring game because of Noonday.

Which brings me back to Stitch Fix.

I think Amy might be getting annoyed that I keep taking her clothes, and I think it might be fun to dress properly, so I decided to ante up the $20 styling fee and try Stitch Fix.


First, the pictures!

The first item in my fix was this blue dolman top, WHICH I ADORE. I was very clear in my Stitch Fix profile that I love dolman tops and wanted one. They heard me. Thank you Meagan (my stylist) for putting this comfortable, flattering top in the fix. WIN.

I know some of you are going to ask about the shoes. Yes, they are SO CUTE, and I totally ordered them from Zappos after seeing my friend Amy in them (yes, that Amy). But ya’ll, I’m returning them because I cannot walk in them. So sad. And so painful.

Next up is this soft denim “chambray” shirt. I don’t know what chambray means, but I really like it.

The thing is, I have a denim shirt, so I’m not sure what I’m going to do. Also, it’s expensive. But really comfortable. And it fits. I may or may not have gained a few pounds and have a tight situation in the other one. Ahem. Well, as far as styling goes, it’s a WIN.

Last top in the fix was this pretty little lacy thing. I asked specifically for a white lace top (per my Pinterest style page), and they delivered. The only problem is that it’s too big. I know it doesn’t look like it’s too big in this picture, but what you don’t see is the undershirt attached to it is UNDER my bits. I actually put another undershirt on to keep this fix G. You’re welcome. The stylist again sent a WIN, but for sizing purposes, I may wait on something with a better fit.

I know, those shoes are cute too. They are not from Stitch Fix, although Stitch Fix will send you shoes to try if you want them to. I asked them not to send me shoes.

The last piece of clothing in the fix was the jeans, which I’m wearing in each picture. They fit great, but (and tell me if this is me being too old), I can’t justify buying jeans with a purposeful hole in them.

Not subtle.

No on the jeans.

Last item in the fix were these earrings, which are cute, but I’m not sure…I’m a dangly kind of girl, so, we’ll see.

Now for my overall Stitch Fix thoughts! Isn’t this fun? 

Stitch Fix PRO’s

I am happy to report that YOU DO NOT have to get a box of clothes every month! You can schedule your fix for every two-three weeks, monthly, every other month, or every three months. This is a major plus for me because every three months sounds just about right. I get to avoid the shopping places while still getting to be cute. TOTAL WIN.

Did I mention with Stitch Fix I don’t have to go shopping? This is the biggest pro for me, and what is likely to make me keep getting fixes.

The stylist for me pretty much NAILED IT. She listened to what I wanted, and delivered. She couldn’t have known that I wouldn’t want holes in my jeans, and I didn’t think to add that information.

You send back whatever you don’t want. There is a prepaid shipping label and packaging and everything you need to pop into USPS and send the items that didn’t work for you back.

You can earn free clothes. When you sign up to try a fix for $20, you get the option of having a referral link to earn free clothes. Hi. I like that. Thank you. Here’s my referral link if you want to try Stitch Fix. 🙂

Stitch Fix CONS

I really only have one con, and it might be me not understanding the service (I am a newbie, remember). But I thought when the stylist sent me items, they sent along ideas for how to wear jewelry with it. Okay, now that I wrote that sentence I feel silly, because why would they do that? They did send a paper with ideas of outfits (see above). I put in a note in my profile that I wanted to know how to wear necklaces with shirts . I was hoping she would have sent necklaces to try with each top. Ah well. Maybe next time. Meagan, if you’re reading this, HELP A SISTER OUT! I need to know how to style necklaces with tops, for reals. 


WIN WIN WIN WIN! I feel like my stylist rocked it. I am VERY happy with my fix and will keep using Stitch Fix. YAY! No more stealing clothes from Amy and no more wandering the mall like a zombie! PERFECT FIT.

Try Stitch Fix For Yourself!

Want to give Stitch Fix a try? Head HERE to create an account and fill out a profile! It’s fun and easy and only $20, which I think is not so bad to be able to avoid malls.

Remember, what you don’t want, you can send back.

Have fun not shopping!

Love, SM

    For the blue top it is long and flowy you need a long, but simple necklace. Long chain (below the boobs) with a statement pendant. For the chambray, statement necklace, wear it inside the collar, a bold color, and make sure it doesn’t fall below the first closed button. White, a lot going on with the lace, a simple pearl necklace would do, something that stays above your collarbone. since there is a lot going on with that top you can’t go wrong with going without and wearing nice dangle earrings instead!

    You are just the cutest. As far as the earrings, I can hook you up with the dangly and you will be empowering women out of poverty while looking amazing. I’ve got other great things to finish off those outfits. You know where to find me. 😉

    So if you keep the clothes are those the prices that you have to pay for them? Cause YIKES! I hate shopping too but the most I’ll spend on a shirt is about $10.00. *smile*
    You look great in all the pictures by the way.

    • http://www.likeawarmcupofcoffee.com Sarah Mae

      Yes, and they are SO expensive! You can request a “cheaper the better” option which I was too late to do. BUT, to find a great shirt that will last (we’ll see) is worth paying a little more for in my opinion. For example, I love that blue dolman top, and so it’s worth it to me! 🙂

    • Beth Perry

      I thought the same thing. Our town has several woman’s consignment shops where you can get great brands for less than $10 a lot of the times. Really great designer stuff is pricier, but still usually less expensive than those tops she has. So consignment has ruined me for all other shppping.

      Yes, the price would definitely be a con for me! But, I’m a cheapo goodwill shopper 😉

    I’ve been thinking about stitch fix for a while since so many people I know use them. And because you are so cute in your presentation here and took me on a whimsical little journey, if I do try it I’ll surely go through you:) You look fab!

      Aw, thank you! 🙂

    Adorable!! Way to go and try something new yet keep it real, too.. like not being too comfortable with the “subtle” jean year. :). But I think moms can try to get into a comfort zone and always adorn the inside but dress up the outside (our “look”) as well. I just enjoy following your blog here and there especially after reading Desperate: Hope For Mom’s Who Need to Breathe.

    girl, no. you NEED some ripped jeans. If you can’t justify buying new jeans with a hole in them, then add some distress to some that are thrifted or some old jeans you already have. they look amazing on you, and no, you are not to old for a little youthful flair. It is a conscious style choice to add a little bit of edge, not a frumpy look.
