Trying Out Stitch Fix

So, my sisters gave me a gift card to Stitch Fix for my birthday and I was pretty excited about it. I hate shopping mostly because I hate trying things on, so this seemed perfect. Stitch Fix evaluates your style and then sends you a box of clothes as often as you’d like to buy or send back. You pay a $20 styling fee and that will go towards anything you buy, but if you don’t buy anything you lose that $20 which stinks.

I got my first box over a month ago and was beyond excited only to be completely let down. I hated everything except for the sandals they sent me, which were just generic any girl would probably like them. The box seemed like it was picked out for a 40 year old mom with two kids. I questioned why I even bothered to fill out the style profile.

But I gave them another shot because getting packages excites me and I still had gift card money. The second box came and…I hated it. Same kind of style was sent to me again even though I sent specific feedback saying I wanted edgy styles and the clothes they sent me didn’t flatter me at all in both boxes. I did keep a pair of jeans which fit me beautifully, were a little pricey, but worth it because they’re my new favorite pair.

If I didn’t have money left on my gift card, I would have been out at this point. Why bother telling someone what you like if they aren’t going to bother to read it? They even have access to your Pinterest and Instagram. What does the $20 styling fee go towards if you aren’t actually tailoring the style to me?

I just got my third box and swear I fell in love with my stylist. They FINALLY listened to me and I liked every piece! You get 25% off if you buy all 5 pieces, but I only bought the 3/5 that I loved.

Overall, I think for $20 it’s fun to see what they will send you. If you want to check it out you can use my referral code here: https://www.stitchfix.com/referral/12689660?sod=w&som=c&str=17299.

I’m going to keep getting boxes because they really hit the nail on the head this time around, but if I get another total bummer then I will probably cancel. The clothes I got were worth signing up, for sure. Stay tuned 🙂 Let me know if you’re thinking of trying/have tried Stitch Fix!

8 Things I Don’t Like About Myself

A couple of days ago I wrote about the things I care too much about. It’s refreshing to see all of the things you need to let go written down in a list. Therefore, I decided to write down the things I don’t like about myself in hopes that I can one day let those go as well.

  1. Being introverted
    A lot of people just don’t understand the amount of time I need alone.
  2. My roots are too dark for my blonde hair
    And literally this is always a problem
  3. My weight
    I think I started my first diet in like 7th grade, I’ve always been insecure about it.
  4. Being self conscious without make up
    I don’t go anywhere without it
  5. My pessimism
    I’m very realistic and this often causes me to be pessimistic
  6. My fear of public speaking
    I seriously suck at it
  7. My overthinking
    It drives me insane
  8. I get easily frustrated
    Why can’t people just stop doing annoying things?hc

Dad Bods, Man Buns, and Facial Hair

It’s funny to watch styles come and go. Even funnier when we begin to popularize things with names such as “dad bods” and “man buns.” Not sure if you want to go down the man bun, dad bod, or facial hair path? Here’s some opinions on the three:

Dad Bods:

By definition – someone who has the body of a dad. It’s a guy who is a little on the softer side, proud of his gut, sporting a little muscle, and built for comfort.

Those who enjoy dad bods say:

It gets a little annoying when a guy is overly obsessed with going to the gym, eating healthy, and having the perfect physique. If they care that much about what they look like, they’re definitely going to care about what you look like. The dad bod lovers want their men looking like they can father children, drink a six pack, and sometimes do manly things outdoors. Plus, who doesn’t love something soft to cuddle with?

Those who aren’t huge fans of the dad bods say:

If I’m busting my butt to look cute, so should my guy! The gals against dad bods want someone who takes care of themselves a little more.  They can lift things, have leaner or sculpted bods, and are a little more clean cut than the dudes with dad bods.

Man Buns:

By definition – a man bun is a man with their hair in a bun. First seen on Europeans and soccer players, the man bun has gained its popularity through sports players and rugged models/actors.

Those who dig the man bun say:

The guys who did it originally and have rocked the style, can actually rock it. They have the scruff and the bod that lead to a perfect boho and indie look. With the right Instagram filter, a guy with a man bun looks as if he lives an active and wild lifestyle that you could be a part of!

Those for chopping off the man bun say:

There are a few things man buns go with and don’t go with.  They do not go with dad bods, they do go with facial hair.  Too many man bun wannabes are attempting this style with clean shaven faces and messy hair or messy hair with a messy bod.  Chop it off, take a shower, look like you put some effort into yourself besides sticking your weird straight hair into an attempted half-pony.

Facial Hair:

There are mustaches, beards, goatees, chin straps, sideburns, and all of the above combined!

Those who like the scruff say:

The more a man looks like he lives in a cabin in the woods, chops wood, and drinks whiskey for breakfast, the better! A guy with facial hair gives off the manly man vibe. Plus, if it’s well taken care of it’s sooo soft!

Those who want a clean shave say:

They want a baby face.  The cavemen-esque style just doesn’t cut it for them because it kind of looks like you’re a little dirty. As stated before, they want some effort in your appearance. Facial hair can also cause some irritation during a long make out sesh.

Here’s a disclaimer though: if you like the way it looks then continue to rock it! Always do what makes you happy.
