Tried-It (& Now Obsessed with It) Tuesday! Hah!


First off I need to apologize for the lack of educational posts. I promise I have been working on some fun activities and units that I hope to share very soon! =)

Today for Tried-it Tuesday, I found the COOLEST thing ever to share with you guys. It's not educational, but based on all the teacher fashion posts/instagram pictures I've seen floating around, I think a bunch of you guys might LOVE this! 

Have any of you heard of Stitch Fix? One of my favorite non-educational bloggers talks about it all the time. Basically its a fashion website where you have your own personal stylist. You sign up for a "fix" and your personal stylist sends you 5 unique pieces of clothing and accessories based on a detailed style report you fill out. You have three days to check out the clothes, and then you send back (free shipping) the ones you don't want. The only commitment is a $20 styling fee that you can put towards any item you purchase. 

I got my first "fix" yesterday and I am already addicted! 
I REALLY want order another fix, but I decided to purchase two of the five items I received yesterday, so I need to save up some more spending money first. 

Check out my first fix:
Items I got in my fix:
1) Super cute blue and white dress... sad news though... 
it is much too short for me.
2) Maxi-skirt... I love this skirt so much that I actually already have it. 
3) Ombre tank...OBSESSED. This one was a definite keeper.
4) White tank... This one looks much cuter on... It was also a keeper.
5) Necklace... This was cute, but I decided to send it back. 

Another super-fun thing about Stitch Fix is that now that I've seen and tried on these five items, I go back to the website and report what I thought about each item. This way my "stylist" can try to make some changes before my next fix. 

Have I convinced you to give this a shot? 
Go to the Stitch Fix website and sign up. You give them your email and then in the next day or two you will get an invite where you can fill out your style profile and get your first fix. Give it a one time try or you can even sign up for monthly fixes! If you sign up let me know! I want to see what fabulous fixes you receive! =)

** Just a side note... Stitch fix didn't ask me to write this post! Hah! I just think they have come up with the coolest idea and I had to share it with all of my fashionable teacher friends! =)

Go check out other things everyone else has tried! 
Thanks for the fun linky Fourth Grade Flipper!

  3. How much do each of the pieces cost? Are they like super expensive if you choose to purchase them?

  4. Thanks for sharing this Stitch Fix idea! It sounds great, but I'm going to have to remember this for the future! (...Sometime after the tight budget is released from saving up for a new house! Which we hope to get into shortly after our wedding in a month ...Yikes for the time crunch!) Anyway, I enjoyed reading your blog today and am excited to be your newest follower! Enjoy your summer!
