Thanks to T-Mobile Tuesday for the $25 credit hookup in July! Best thing EVER. I asked my friends and family for their code so I could finally refresh my wardrobe. I really wanted everything in this box to be something I would like to keep and I got just what I wanted! YAY!!! I am ready to take on the world with 5 additional pieces!

Just a quick blurb on Stitch Fix, in case you’re not familiar:

Stitch Fix is an online styling service that delivers a truly personalized shopping experience, just for you. Fill out your Style Profile and a personal stylist will hand pick pieces to fit your tastes, needs and budget—and mail them directly to your door. Each box contains five items of clothing, shoes and accessories for you to try on at home. Keep what you love, send the rest back in a prepaid USPS envelope. Shipping and returns are free—even for exchanges!

I got my first box last year (Jan 2016) and haven’t ordered another one since. Not because they didn’t send me things I like (I liked them all), but because of the price point. You can read that post here.

Alrightie, so here are my 5 pieces. I was BEYOND excited to open the box (it sat near my door for 3 days):

stitchfix-logoStitch Fix is your personal stylist, who will mail you a box of fashion finds based on your style every month (or whatever frequency you like).

My first box arrived on Wednesday and with 3 days to return, I dropped it into a USPS box last night since this Snowpocalypse is making NYC a stay-at-time-and-Netflix kind of day (or a UWIB kick-off join.me meeting day). Here is a collage of the 5 pieces and some ways I decided to put it on:

my sister actually opened the box on Wed night while I was doing BBG WK 10 Abs. I was like, "THEY KNOW ME, OMG! SO CUTE" and then she told me the prices and I knew I had to return it ASAP (after taking pics, haha~)

My experience with Stitch Fix went from:
😮 – oh, what is this?
😀 – hey, this survey is kinda fun, *pins some things*
😦 – eh, a styling fee?
😕 – what if I don’t like the stuff?
📧 – 5 months later, discount code email –> 😁 aw yeah
📦 – package arrives!
👚👖👗 – yazz 😍
😭❄️ – when returning at the start of Snowpocalypse

Can you tell I love emojis? More about my experience in words and larger pictures…

Minor edits in Oct 2019

I wrote this a few months into my first “real job” back in 2012 because it seemed very relevant at the time. In fact, you’d be surprised how many people still have cluttered inboxes (1000s unread). WHY? Simple tricks to make your work/life more manageable.

As a new hire, you might already have noticed, emails land in your inbox very frequently and sometimes it may be distracting you from your current task. Before the work gets intense and you find yourself one year from now in the same situation, take some time to get organized. It will help you in the long run.

Here’s a few tips to keep in mind when dealing with Microsoft Outlook.
