#WriterWednesday — Writer’s Life — Fashion (or lack there of)

Every writer I know has their go-to writing clothes. Usually it’s something comfortable like yoga pants, slippers, leggings, big fuzzy sweaters. Let’s face it. We’re at a desk or sitting on a couch, probably at home alone, and our characters could care less about what we’re wearing.

But even the busiest writers need to leave the house at some point!

Leave the house, you say? No. I can’t. I’d have to put on a bra!

Yep, you do. And maybe change out of those comfy-yet-very-broken-in yoga pants while you’re at it.

I recently discovered STITCH FIX to help me look cute and put together when I leave the house. In case you haven’t heard of it, Stitch Fix is a service that sends you 5 pieces of clothing or accessories as often as every few weeks, or as little as every few months. You fill out an extensive, but fun, survey about your style and what you like/need/want, and price ranges for all. Then just sit back and let someone else do the shopping for you! Each fix, you keep what you like and easily send back what you don’t.

I really wasn’t convinced it would work for me. I mean, shopping for clothes can really suck. You try on a ton of things and nothing fits. Ugh. But surprisingly, my Stitch Fix stylist sends me stuff every month and it almost always fits. Even the pants! And I’ve gotten some really cute stuff that I normally would never have tried on myself. Some months I buy only 1 of my 5 items and send the rest back. Last month, I bought all 5 and got a great discount!

Now I don’t have to fear leaving the house and not looking cute because I always have something new and awesome to wear from Stitch Fix! Check out the stuff I bought in my last fix! Jeans, maxi skirt, blouse, sweater, and scarf!

New shirt I would NEVER pick out but LOVE! And new skinny jeans in charcoal.

Same pants, with new sweater, and scarf. I would NEVER pick out the scarf and I like it and I think I’ll wear it this fall.

Maxi shirt I would never pick out for myself but seeing it with my black tank, I really liked it! Think it would look great with a dark blue blouse too!

    Great idea Heather! I’ve thought about doing something like this and now I know someone who actually has! Yay! By the way, I not only love to read your books but thoroughly enjoy your blog each week so if you ever feel like you’re hearing crickets, there’s at least one reader in TX always reading. Have a great day!

      Hi Liberty! Thanks for reading and commenting! I really enjoy hearing from people. Sometimes it does feel like I’m the only one who reads my blog. LOL. So it’s nice to know there are others out there following along!! I found out about Stitch Fix through another author who uses it and a friend who just started. They both had great things to say so I figured I had nothing to lose in giving it a try! Let me know if you try it and how it goes for you!

    looks good Heather. My daughter uses it herself. she likes the outfits they pick for her and has been able to sell off those she doesn’t.

      Hi Eileen, I’ve heard of people being able to sell the pieces they don’t want but buy anyway to get the discount, but I haven’t looked into it too closely. Returns are so easy that it’s not inconvenient to drop what I don’t want back into the mail. But maybe I’ll look into the sell thing! Thanks for stopping by!!
