Stitch Fix: Pre-Spring Review

- Featured, Reviews

Stitch Fix arrival day is always a mixture of giddy nervousness when I pull into my driveway and see my Stitch Fix box by the front door. This time was no different!  I decided to wait until after the kids went to bed to open my box and it about did me in!  By the time I opened my box, I was like a toddler waiting to dig in to their piece of birthday cake, 2 kids too long!  At…

I Tried ThirdLove – A Brutally Honest Review

- Featured, Reviews

Confession: The last bra I purchased was a nursing bra from Target. I bought it before Cate was born. She’s three. For me, bra shopping is more painful than swimsuit shopping. While my slim frame usually serves me well in the fashion department, I struggle to embrace my flat chest. I almost exclusively wear the Victoria’s Secret Bombshell bra. I’m a big fan of its well-padded, pillow-like cups that adds two cup sizes, but it has never fit well. So, I wear…

I can already think of a ton of ways to pair them for weekends, date nights and casual Fridays at work. They feel a little more dressed up and fashion forward than my regular denim. For complete outfit…

Trendsend Review: Winter Edition

- Reviews

It seems like there are 101 subscription boxes these days! Sometimes it’s hard to decide which ones are worth trying and which ones should “stay in the box” so to speak. Evereve Trendsend is typically one of my favorites with it’s mom-inspiring positive messages and personalized stylist notes. The only reason I don’t usually keep everything in my Trendsend box is because my mom budget won’t allow me to in good conscience. This month I requested trendy winter pieces for work…

Trendsend Review: Fall Trends

- Let's Spend Some Money, Reviews

Stitch Fix is a favorite of mine but sometimes I feel like the words “mom” and “40” pigeon hole me into a certain “list” of clothing choices somewhere in their database so it’s always fun to throw another boxed subscription into the mix with Evereve Trendsend. It works a lot like Stitch Fix in that you complete a style profile and schedule your box to ship. Unlike Stitch Fix, however, there is no styling fee and you can schedule as many…

KidBox is Stitch Fix for Kids

- General Fabulousness, Reviews

While lately my last few Stitch Fixes have been disappointing, the idea of clothing that someone else picked out showing up on my doorstep is still pretty damn awesome. KidBox was created with that same intention, only this time they’re shipping clothes to your kiddo. Try it on at home, keep what you like, exchange any items that don’t fit or return. Can’t get any easier, right? A new KidBox is available every quarter as the seasons change, and they offer…

Stitch Fix: Weekend Getaway

- Reviews

Recently, I got to go on a work trip to a very fabulous location. So I did what any working mom would do: asked a grandma to come watch the kids and bought a ticket for my husband to meet me out there. We have not had a kids-free trip in YEARS (literally seven!), plus it was right around both of our birthdays, so we were ready to have some fun. Of course, that means new clothes! And since there’s…
