Stitch Fix is a monthly service that sends you clothes based on your styling profile. You don't have to buy anything, but there is a $20 styling fee if you send it ALL back. If you keep any of the pieces, the $20 is deducted from you balance. If you keep all 5 pieces 25% is deducted from your total.

So, after you fill out the styling profile, you pick the date you want to receive your clothes. They recommend you have a Stitch Fix board on Pinterest that they can access so they know what kinds of clothes interest you. You can also tell them if you are looking for something specific.

Keep the items you like and return the rest in the pre-paid mailing bag and drop it at any USPS mailbox. There is free shipping both ways. You leave feedback for your stylist about what you liked and disliked and then you can schedule another box.

I usually shop at Target, Old Navy, Burlington Coat Factory, Ross and Maurice, but I decided to give this a try.

Here is what I got in my second box.

 I love the cards they send with the pairings. For us style challenged types.

 It's always packaged so nicely.

 The sweater was cute and fit perfectly and....
 .... I loved the lace, but I already have a black sweater. So this goes back.
 I loved this necklace, but I really don't need it, so I couldn't see keeping it either.
It looked really cute with this pencil skirt.

I fell in love the minute I took it out of the box.
I liked this shirt, but it just isn't me.

I loved the jeans with the little zipper at the ankles, but the their were priced way too high.

So I kept the pencil skirt and sent the rest back. I was so excited waiting for my monthly box and I will try it again. I really like this.

If you want to see what I got in my first box, here is the link...BOX #1.

Now I put all the items that I'm not keeping into a prepaid mailer, fill out a survey of how I liked everything, leave a not for my stylist of what I would like next time and set the next date for a box to arrive. It was fun!

What did you think of my fix this month? Are you ready to get your fix on? If you want to try it out please use this referral link. For each friend who signs up and orders, I will get a $25 credit.

It's cooled off in the mornings some, but it will still be in the 90's in the afternoons this week. So I'm still trying to find outfits that are professional, but comfortable and cool. Here's what I've come up with.

First Week of School

The student's love analyzing TODAY'S NUMBER. We do this as a BELLRINGER when they walk in the door, while I take attendance and do lunch count.
He's writing his answers in his spiral.
 We also do PAIR-SHARE in our LITERACY GROUPS. This is one of the favorite corners.
 This is a study hall block, where all the kids are working on something different and I walk around assisting.
This is the consensogram for our first Math Module. They have to put a sticker showing how well they understand a topic, like multiplying 2 digit numbers. One means they have no idea and four means they feel that they are experts.
 We write in our agendas every day too.
 Here is a student working on his continents and oceans map. We have a test on this next week.
 This student is matching words with their definitions. It's a fun way to practice.
Here is another picture of my room as the students are working.
