threadUp Goody Box Review

Reviews, Style

If you haven’t heard of thredUp yet, it’s a great website where you can buy gently used women’s and children’s clothing and accessories at bargain prices. The website sorts items by designer and even offers some items still with tags. I’ve gotten some great individual pieces so i decided to try the thredUp Goody Box. The box is basically like Stitch Fix of Secondhand fashion. You fill out a brief profile then thredUp sends you a box filled with 10…

Stitch Fix, Trendsend, Trunk Club … What’s the Difference?

Mom Life, Reviews

There’s no questions that the idea of receiving a box full of clothes right to your door and leisurely trying on clothes while sipping a glass of wine has a lot more appeal than battling crowds at the mall! But with so many options these days, it’s hard to decide which box subscription is right for you. After dozens of boxes from Trunk Club, Stitch Fix and Evereve Trendsend over the years, I’ve gathered a few notes on the pros…

Amazon Prime: Hits and Misses

Let's Spend Some Money, Reviews

Amazon Prime is the stuff busy mama’s dreams are made of! Add items to cart and they magically appear in two business days without shipping costs! Sign me up! The pro and con of Amazon is that everything seems more fabulous, more fashionable and better with free shipping! With a growth in vendors offered through Amazon however, sometimes what shows up on your doorstep is far different than what you saw on the screen when you clicked “add to cart”!…

Stitch Fix Review: Fall Work Wear

Reviews

I always seem to be on the hunt for the perfect work wardrobe. Somehow, I naturally gravitate more toward jeans and trendy tops than blazers and work appropriate pants. Stitch Fix is my go to when it comes to shopping outside my comfort zone and finding some mix and match work pieces. This month I asked my Stitch Fix stylist to send me work friendly blazers and fall pieces for the office. If you’re not already familiar with how Stitch…

Trendsend Review: Early Fall

Reviews

Fall is my absolute favorite season! I’m that girl who can’t wait for campfires, hikes in the mountains, carving pumpkins and dragging my family apple picking! In the south, fall weather doesn’t always magically cooperate as soon as the calendar hits September so I reached out to my stylist at Evereve’s Trendsend for some help balancing the fall season with temps that feel a bit more like summer! If you’re not already familiar with how Trendsend works, click here to learn…

Stitch Fix Review: Early Fall

Reviews

Fall means cooler weather and warm muted colors like wine, plum, pumpkin and marigold. It’s my favorite season of all time and I find myself dreaming of pumpkin patches, apple picking and bonfires as soon as the calendar flips to September 1! Since moving to the south however, I often struggle with how to balance my desire to layer on scarfs and jackets the first day of September with the 80 degree temps in Georgia. With that in mind, I…

Fab Fit Fun Review: Fall Box

Beauty, Mom Life, Reviews, Style

Chances are you’ve seen Fab Fit Fun pop up in your newsfeeds for a few years now. If you’re like me, you’ve clicked “add to cart” a million times but always bail and wonder if it is really worth taking the $49.99 plunge! I saw a promo code this month and decided to try it out! Fall is my all time favorite season and I figured, worst case scenario I’ll get a few pumpkin spice candles and a blanket scarf and…

Prime Wardrobe: Espandrille Review

Let's Spend Some Money, Reviews

Open Toe Espadrilles are a big trend this summer! They’re perfect for dressing up denim shorts and a tee on the weekends or paired with skinny pants and a blazer for the office. If you’re like me, shoes are really hard to fit. My feet have been tortured by years of running and it seems I need to try on about 100 pairs of shoes to find one that fits! Enter Amazon Prime Wardrobe to the rescue. I ordered multiple…

Battle of the Boxes: Stitch Fix vs Trendsend

Let's Spend Some Money, Reviews, Style

It’s no secret that I love a good box subscription, especially when it involves having great clothes shipped straight to my door! Stitch Fix and Evereve Trendsend are two of my favs! Stitch Fix ships 5 separate pieces based on your style profile and a quick note to your stylist all for a $20 style fee. The fee gets applied to anything you purchase and you earn 25% off your order if you keep all five pieces. Trendsend does not…

Hey Stitch Fix Stylist: Dress Me for My Beach Vacation

Reviews, Style

Every once in awhile, the stars align and we get to go on VACATION! But we all know a vacation is no vacation for mom. Just getting ready for it is filled with stress, packing lists as long as a CVS receipt and more stress. (Total first world problems, I know!) For our upcoming week long trip to the beach, I decided to try and take one thing off of my ginormous to-do list: packing for myself. I sent an…
