Baby’s First Blog Event: a StitchFix Launch Party

A few weeks ago, I received a curious invite from StitchFix to a secret event. There were no details other than a date, time, and mention that kids were welcome. Because I love a good mystery, I accepted the invite. It also helps that the StitchFix HQ are right around the corner from my apartment, since I have major “seven block” mentality when it comes to where I will go in the city. If it’s more than seven blocks from my home, I’m a bit lazy about it.

If you don’t know about StitchFix, it’s an online personal styling service for women. Since I hate picking out my own clothes, I’ve used it several times in the past and I’ve loved it. To get “a Fix,” you go online to the StitchFix website and fill out a style profile, price range, and the date you want your fix delivered. A personal stylist will select five items for you ranging from clothes to jewelry to handbags, you name it. You try it on, keep and pay for what you want, and send the rest back. Oh, and if you keep everything, you get a discount. It’s super easy, and so much fun when the box comes in!

Okay, so now you know why I was pretty intrigued and exited about this event. I get to go hang out with a bunch of personal stylists at a mecca of fun fashion! So Monday I received the final invite – it was a secret launch party to introduce StitchFix’s new Maternity and Petites lines!

Squeee! All the squeee. Since I am both petite and have needed some good maternity clothes in the past, I was super excited to find this out. When I was pregnant and wanted to do a StitchFix, I requested an accessories-only fix which was really cool, but I could’ve still used a good pair of maternity pants, you know?

Anyway, I figured this would be a good mommy-daughter outing for Buttercup and me. We even got all gussied up for it.

They had professional babysitters from urbansitter.com to corral the kids, so I promptly handed the little miss off so I could schmooze and peruse the cute clothes and fun baby products from 4moms that were being raffled off.

“You’re coming back, Mom … right? Mommy?” I don’t know, Cream Puff. There’s free champagne and lots of cute clothes over here.

It was fun dusting off my “work a party” skills again. Coming from new baby and this whole postpartum depression thing, it was great to get out and meet some other bloggy moms from the area. The event was co-hosted by ClubMomMe, a community for parents and parents-to-be to network, socialize, and get clued in on new baby products and helpful tips in the overwhelming “oh-goodness-we-have-to-keep-this-small-human-alive-and-thriving” world. I met with the nice ladies of Club Momme, and found that there will be a stroller-friendly 5k coming this fall in the Bay Area! I’m quite excited about that, since it will give me a little extra push to actually finish up my Couch-to-5k program that I’ve started and stopped about five times since I was cleared for exercise. Maybe this will become a running blog again!

The launch party was tons of fun and I got to meet a bunch of really cool moms and bloggers, and Buttercup did her thing of looking cute and squishy and pulling off the “baby can’t even” quite nicely.

I can’t even. Nope, can’t even.

Thank you to StitchFix, Club MomMe, and all the great sponsors for this event! I can’t wait to schedule my next Fix with real petite pants that I don’t have to take to a tailor to hem! 😀

Make it a great day, everyone!

  1. Her face is just too much! I’m not a huge fan of stitchfix. I did it twice but it mostly just missed the mark for me and… I’m cheap 😉

    • I’ve heard mixed reviews about StitchFix. Fortunately it’s always worked for me, but you’re right about the cost thing. It is much more expensive than my usual wardrobe staples, so I only do it a couple times a year, for a fun splurge.
