Stitch Fix Review: June 2013

tumblr_inline_mkdn876jaP1qz4rgpHello Blogosphere!

It’s that time again!!! Time for another Stitch Fix Review!

So, how does it work?

-Just go to Stitchfix.com, fill out their style profile, set your budget limits, and schedule your 1st “Fix”!

-To make things more fun, follow Stitch Fix on Pinterest, make your own Stitch Fix board, & then they can see what you’re pinning and throw in some extra special goodies into your “Fixes”!

-AND, of course go look at the Stitch Fix Blog for the latest and greatest!

These are iPhone pictures & I have post-gym hair with my Y re-admittance stamp 😉 No judging allowed!

Overall, Sarah really took note of my pins on my Stitch Fix Pinterest Board. The blue dress is KILLER & just like the dress I pinned which is way more expensive. I’m also quite pleased with all the Summer looks in this Fix. The last fix had a wee bit more fall than I’d hoped for, so this Fix was perfect…sigh*

Memorial Day: Honor the Fallen

909801

This Memorial Day how will you honor the fallen?

As an Army Wife and Army Brat, Memorial Day means honoring those who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom. This year, I’ve decided to pledge 3 miles of running to Wear Blue: Run To Remember, a grassroots organization with 3 goals.

– Act as a support network.

– Create a living memorial.

-And bridge the gap between the military and the community.

This organization does SO much more and is led by founder, Lisa Hallett, whose husband CPT John Hallett died fighting for our country in 2009. She and so many others honor their loved ones every Saturday by running. You can see them everywhere here in Tacoma with their Blue Shirts, iPods, and steely looks of determination. This Saturday’s run is especially important as we celebrate Memorial Day 2013. Just over 3,000 miles have been pledged! Last year, 18,000 miles were pledged!

I highly encourage you to click on the graphic above to see if you have a local chapter in your area. If not, you can still pledge miles and join me and so many others in honoring the fallen…

In love,
