After slipping and sliding all over the floor during various plank exercises and other positions, I found myself feeling increasingly frustrated during class. Planks are hard enough when you’re totally stable, so when I found my feet slipping out from under me time and time again, the frustration began to build. Since my love affair with Pure Barre hit me pretty quick, I waited a few weeks to make sure I wasn’t just in the infatuation stage. (What is this, The Bachelorette!?) When I felt like this whole barre thing might stick, I bought a pair of grippy socks.
They make such a difference. Seriously. I kind of thought they wouldn’t, but I am a believer now and think it may be time to order another pair or two since I feel like the gross kid in class wearing the same socks day in and day out. (I also feel like the stripes on my socks make it rather noticeable that I’m wearing the same *unwashed* socks, so I’m opting for a more muted pair this time.)
I really wish I would’ve remembered to bring my barre slippers with me to temp housing!
After my 6 a.m. Pure Barre class this morning, I headed home to assemble a quick breakfast.
Breakfast began with a snack plate that centered around almond butter.
I paired Nut Thins with almond butter and let Sadie lick the plate when I was done which made her way too happy. (I’m so glad to have her back!!! We missed her way too much.)
Plus a cup of key lime pie Greek yogurt topped with a sprinkling of granola and a few crushed raw almonds.
Not too shabby!
And now let’s move right along to your StitchFix FAQs…
1. Does StitchFix offer maternity clothes?
No. But you can make a note when you request a fix to tell your stylist that you are pregnant and they will do their best to select clothes to flatter your bump! Here are two StitchFix maternity reviews from two of my blogging buddies that may be of interest:
You can also request “accessories only” fixes if you’d rather not take your chance with clothing. By asking for only accessories, you will receive fixes filled only with jewelry, handbags, scarves, etc.
2. How to I request specific items in my next fix?
You can do this a number of ways! Pin a StitchFix item you’ve seen on blogs or Instagram to the Pinterest board you have linked to your style profile. (I’ve personally never done a full review of a fix, but they are ALL over the internet, so simply Googling “StitchFix review” or searching the #stitchfix hashtag on Instagram will bring up a bunch.) You can also request an item by name (or provide a direct link to a picture of it) when you order a fix. I requested the pink dress I’m wearing above by simply linking to the previous blog post I published where I am wearing the dress.
3. Does requesting an item guarantee I will receive it?
4. How can I get better clothes in my fix?
Give incredibly specific feedback. I was frustrated with a handful of fixes because even though my style profile requested loose bottoms and more form-fitting tops, I received boxy tops time and time again. (Not the most flattering for someone with a pear-shaped body!) I was frustrated but then I realized that even though I was sending the tops back, I never actually provided feedback that said “no boxy tops” so my stylist could’ve thought I sent them back for a number of reasons (color, design, etc.). I now make it a point to give much more detailed feedback!
5. Is StitchFix planning to offer clothes for kids or men? Do they plan to ship outside of the United States anytime soon?
Not in the near future. They are still a very young company and don’t have the resources to ship internationally or expand into men and children’s fashion at this time.
6. Is StitchFix a subscription service? Do I have to sign up to receive fixes every month?
No and no. You can opt to receive monthly fixes, but you can also order one fix at a time.
Hope this helps!!! Have a great Tuesday!
