Sometimes a Designer has to ask for HELP

Whew, it's been awhile since my last entry; I've been a busy bee!

I've had renovation after renovation nonstop!  Last year we completed a church that was new construction, a master bath renovation, a basement, countless color & furniture consultations, and a kitchen and sunroom renovation...I'm sure I'm missing stuff...it was a very busy year for L&L!  Then, my husband shocked us all by ending the year with open-heart surgery!  Literally right after returning from Northwestern (hospital) we learned we are expecting BABY #3!

So, here I am, my hubby's doing great, we've been back to work for several months and my wardrobe is getting more, um, "difficult".  I decided to treat this "season" with a full closet overhaul.  I've started packing away things I know will take awhile to fit back into...and my closet is somewhat empty!
I'm so busy with work these days, and I HATE shopping for maternity clothes.  I pulled out my maternity clothes from my first two babies, and just cringed.  I didn't feel good in those clothes the first time around...and as a close friend pointed out "I'm sure they are out of style!" haha...so I've decided to have a wardrobe stylist take care of this 'season' for me.  I'm pretty picky with my clothes (surprise, surprise)...so we'll have to see how it turns out.  I'll be sure to keep you posted!  I've always said I'd like to design a line of clothes...but unfortunately I don't sew, and I think those two go hand-in-hand. (wink)  I know what necklines look best on me, I know my best colors, I have a definite style...I'm just hoping my stylist doesn't reject me as "too high maintenance"! HA!  They give you a section to "type your notes to help the stylist learn your needs"...and I kept running out of character typing space. (whoops).

I'm doing my best to keep an open mind...I am actually a little excited!  It's kinda interesting to have someone pick something out for me for a change!  It's a nice program, for $20 if it can save me time and frustration, I think it's worth a try!  If you are interested, I'll post the link below.  Here's how it works:

-Basically, you fill out a style profile (likes & dislikes, sizes etc).

-Schedule your "Stitch Fix" -- It's delivered to your home

-You buy what you like & return the rest. The more you buy the more you save.

I'll let you know what I think.  I scheduled my first shipment for the first week in May!

Here's the link if you want to check it out!
