Tracy Chipman Tells a Tale

February 18, 2013

We love it when Tracy comes to town and swings by Blue Fish to model for us! Tracy is a professional storyteller…so we asked her to tell us a tale about modeling for Blue Fish. So she did.

Tracy’s Tale

I’m passionate about the power of storytelling – this magical, interactive and ancient craft has the power to inspire, empower and enlighten. The magic of storytelling lies in active listening and active imaging that occurs between listener and teller…we all love a good story well told. When I’m not spinning yarns I teach yoga, grow organic vegetables, write and feed the birds in Menomonie, Wisconsin near the shores of Lake Menomin.

Yet another reason why I’m head over heels for Blue Fish is that every article of clothing has a rich story – from the creative musings of the designers to the unfolding of the final hand printed, luscious dress or skirt or top – there’s a story every step of the way. Pure magic and integrity!

Tracy telling us a story

Modeling for Blue Fish is always a special and unforgettable experience. It’s soo not about the camera or posing…it IS all about experiencing (and showcasing) the heart and art that is Blue Fish.

There is something completely unique about donning their artful wear – you can feel all the personal attention, the creative energy…and yes the heart that these talented Blue Fish folk imbue their clothes with. From the design to the fabric selection, to the sewing to the hand block printing…you literally feel it all. This amazing hand-made, fine art experience…it’s the way clothing should feel.

That it is organic and made in the US is just the cherry on an already exceptional cake.

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.  

If you ever have questions about the fit of our clothing, just give us a call! We will help you find the specific styles that will work best for you. Call us at 800.395.4566 M-F from 9-5 CST to speak to our personal shoppers. You can also email us with any questions at
