Things I Can’t {Style} Without: Mom Edition

December 7, 2012

I adore Stitch Fix. Here’s why: I’m not a shopper. I’ve admitted it on here before. I just hate going into stores and wandering through aisles, going into dressing rooms, trying to match pieces with other pieces and ending up in with a huge headache from it all.

Yet there is a part of me that does want to look dressed up – not always the mom in jeans and a Target shirt (not that there is anything wrong with that. Target for life.) 

So then I found out about Stitch Fix and my style life changed. Basically you go to their site, fill out some questions about your current style, what you want your style to be, what your body shape is, colors you like/don’t like (nix on the leopard or neon), choose a few outfits from some Pinterest type pics, add your budget, and schedule a “fix.”

Then? (This is the BEST PART. Other than new clothes) Stitch Fix sends you a box with tops, pants, dresses, accessories – all based on your interests and customizations – and you try them on at home. Keep what you love, return (in a prepaid bag) what you don’t. Keep it all and get 25% off everything.

All name brand. All gorgeous.


It’s a “fix-as-you-go” kind of deal. They offer a monthly but you can simply schedule randomly with no extra charges. As you put your feedback in on each piece on their site, they further customize your fixes to fit your style and needs.

I’m sorry some of these are awkward with my face. It’s just how taking your own photos goes.

Want some new clothes for the new year? Schedule a fix now. Then sit back and wait for the pretty little Stitch Fix goodies to get to your door. <3


I like being able to throw my hair up quickly and go. With therapy appointments, a sitter who comes 3 mornings a week, and working from home full time, I can’t spend a lot of time messing with it. So on days I just need it up and out of my face without yet another rubber band (that can’t be found anyway), I love the Lilla Rose products.

These stylish and darling pieces make keeping my hair looking cute so easy. I ADORE the flower You Pins (see below left pic). I can twist my shorter hair up and stick them in and it stays all day. They curve in so they hide in your hair as well.

You Pins and Flexi

The Flexi is a great way for me to pull my hair low and stick it in to hold – the best part is they flex for thinner or thicker hair. Aren’t sure what to get for your hair length and thickness? They have a page and video to show you what would work best.

I toss them in my purse for on the go moments and use them for 2nd day hair that maybe looks like 4th when it’s down. That way I always look pulled together even if the day wasn’t heading that direction. 🙂

Lilla Rose always has specials going on, and offer a work at home start up business for anyone interested in selling them!


Stitch Fix is a referral but unpaid link. I was sent the Lilla Rose products to review. All opinions are my own.

    This sounds like a dream come true! Especially since in BV the options are quite limited, I rarely get to the city and when I do the shopping, driving, traffic, long day, etc. are quite headache-inducing. Will check it out!

    it sounds nice, but you sign up and have to wait for an invite. do you have invites to send out?

      It’s in a beta stage so they are staggering invites in order to get shipments out quicker. You should only have a short wait and they send them – mine was 2 days. 🙂
