Judith’s Story

March 27, 2013

Judith at the Taos Store

I knew from a very young age that I was different. My first sisters were following the fads but I was searching for my own style. That never changed even as I got older. I discovered Blue Fish after their doors had already closed. I fell in love with the uniqueness and creativity and expression of this line of clothing. I searched the internet for any and all information I could find about Blue Fish and I was amazed with Jennifer Barclay’s story and the beginning of this fabulous company. Needless to say when Barclay Studio opened, I was overjoyed. I finally had a place that gave me what I wanted —unusual styles and creativity. A year ago, I had a life changing event, I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. It was even more important for me to feel good about what myself, to express myself through my clothes, to show my strength. I also made the decision to take a trip to Taos, New Mexico which had always been a lifelong dream of mine. I got to see the shop, was able to tour where all the painting takes place. But sadly I did not get the chance to meet Jennifer.

I get lots of compliments on my Barclay outfits and when I am asked where I purchased it, I begin by telling them about this girl, Jennifer, who started painting in her parents garage at a young age and the rest is history. Blue Fish not only has helped me to express my creativity through clothing but it has also inspired me to express myself through my artwork and open up my own little shop on Etsy. I have developed a wonderful relationship with Frani at the Frenchtown store. Although Frani has never met me, she seems to know what I would like and what would work for me. You certainly don’t get that kind of treatment anywhere else. So, thank you Blue Fish, for allowing me to express myself creatively!

Size Guide


Blue Fish sizing is uniquely ours. We have developed this system to fit many body types, shapes, & heights comfortably. Here is the Blue Fish size chart and its traditional size equivalent:

00 – only available in select styles. fits up to size 6

0 – fits up to size 10

1 – fits ups to size 16

2 – fits up to size 22

3 – only available in our studio tees & some tunics. fits up to size 26

O/S – one size that fits most customers

Remember that each style is unique & has different measurements--please check the size chart on your item of interest for exact measurements! One style may fit you differently than other styles you have worn before and we strongly recommend checking the measurements before making your purchase.


You might wear a combination of sizes depending on your body shape and how you prefer the drape of your clothing. For instance, you might wear a size 0 pants and a size 1 top. If you prefer looser, more flowy clothing, size up--if you prefer more fitted pieces, choose those closer to your actual measurements. We provide measurements for each style so you can find the best fit for the way you like to wear your Blue Fish.
