Stitch Fix #4!

Oh man. I’m really bad at blogging again, but whatever. It’s my blog and I’ll be totally random and post two Stich Fix entires in a  row if I want to 🙂

I did Stitch Fix again!!! Read my previous post for all the information about what Sitch Fix is 🙂

First of all, I got new hair. (I got a dark gloss and some new and improved bangs!) The style didn’t last too long, though, because it was insanely humid and I sweat a lot. I think some people are just a lot better at sweating than others. I am a champion sweater. And champion eater too… It is what it is.

And without further ado, here are my pieces from this Fix!

Loveappella kit v-neck top:
This one is INSANELY soft and comfortable. It’s not the most flattering, and I feel a little overwhelmed with stripes (Probably because they are all over my Pinterest style board). But The side panels and neck and sleeve details broke up the stripes nicely.

Verdict: Keep!

Next is a dress! I didn’t know what to think when I saw this one but i put it on and was amazed!!!

It works for my long torso–the hips are in the right spots and the style is both date AND work-friendly. And it is STRETCHY!

And also in my fix was this adorable statement necklace. Look how great this little pop of color is with this dress: 

 

Verdict: Keep!

And the statement necklace, too.

Verdict: Keep!

Next is a really pretty colored shirt. I liked the sleeve length a lot and the color is so pretty. The only negative is that it’s pretty tight in my armpits because I have huge football-player shoulders and traps.

Here you can see the armpit snugness, but I think I will wear it anyways. It’s actually a really cute design 🙂

And since i’m loving everything else in my box so much, you get a 25% discount if you keep it all, and I can definitely get some use out of this shirt. 

Verdict: Keep!

And last but not least–here is a really nice cardigan.

It’s amazingly soft and has really cute details! Look! It has elbow patches! I’ve never owned anything with those, so that is really fun.

 

The stylist mentioned that she saw something really similar on my pinterest board  and I just went to see if i could find it and here it is!

Anyways yes, so I KEPT IT ALL!!!! YAYYY! I am really happy with this fix 🙂 Especially that dress–I never would have tried that on if I had seen it in a store, but I think it’s my favorite piece from the whole fix.

Try if your yourself!!! and please my referral link: https://www.stitchfix.com/referral/3245408

When you get your first fix, I get $25 credit–and I had $50 to use towards that last fix so that was really awesome.

 

Stick Fix #3!

So…. I signed up for my third Fix at Stich Fix!!! I’m so excited! I never ever shop.  Seriously. And when I try to shop, I always leave practically in tears because nothing fits me.  My body type is a difficult one to dress, so I left a note to the stylist that I prefer things with stretch.

If you Ddn’t know what Stich Fix is, it’s this incredibly convenient online shopping experience. You fill out a profile on their site and they send you a “Fix” which consists of 6 items.. I think. I’ve always gotten 6 in my fixes. The stylist who creates your Fix will try to tailor the items to your profile. Also you can write them notes per fix and share a Pinterest board with them. I totally share mine and I think that’s why i end up with stripes in my fixes a lot. I don’t really love stripes on me, but I love them on other people. Models. Everything looks good on models.

 

So anyways, I got my box last night when I got home from the gym. I was so excited, I apologize for the sub-part photos, but i was super excited and didn’t care about the crappy lighting.

Here’s the note from my box:

And now for the goodies:  

First item:

STREET LEVEL #7382-044

Juno Small Folded Clutch

$38.00

  

I never use clutches, but I really like this one. I am honestly extremely torn about keeping it or not… but I will decide by the end of the day today so that I can take all the no-keepers to the post office.

I forgot to mention–if you keep everything then you get 25% off! Unfortunately, not everything fit me so that’s not an option for me with this Fix, but it’s a pretty cool bonus. But also, since I know I won’t keep it all, I have no incentive to keep “most” either. Which makes me  feel less likely to keep the clutch since I can probably find something similar for the same price later in the future when I actually need it.

I also forgot to say that it costs $20 for the “styling fee” but then you get to use that $20 towards keeping anything from your Fix. And shipping both ways is free, so it totally is worth it even if you don’t keep anything, IMO.

Next up:

PAPERMOON #6711-357

Anna Mixed Material Knit Top

$38.00

This top is really cool. and unlike anything I already have. I have nothing with this type of print and nothing that is mixed materials like this. I think it’s really cool. It’s looser/flowier than what I am used to, but I am keeping it for sure. Excited to be adding something new and different to my style 🙂

I almost wish the whole thing were solid colors, but here’s to being a little more exciting.

 

And here come here come the stripes 🙂

LOVEAPPELLA #7460-224

Canon Button Detail Striped Knit Top

$48.00  

I love the button details on the sleeves! And the length of the sleeves. This top is an absolute keeper because it works perfect for any season. And it’s knit so it stretches to fit my insane shoulders.  I would love to have it in a solid color as well if that exists.

I specifically asked for a pair of pants to try in this Fix. And I got these:

MARGARET M #7098-754

Emer Bootcut Pant

$98.00

 They are so stretchy! And I think it’s cool that they don’t have a zipper or button fly of any kind, they are just a super easy pull-on pant and really stretchy. Which is exactly what I asked for 🙂

Unfortunately, if I bend at all then they slide down like crazy! Exhibit A:   

That will drive nuts at work, so I knew I had to pass on these. Very unfortunate. #bigbootyproblems?

Next up is a SKIRT!

PIXLEY #7790-924

Hanneli Polka Dot Swing Skirt

$54.00 

It’s actually a little bit longer than most of my skirts, but I think I really like it. It will be great for work this summer while it’s so dang hot. I was on the fence for a while, but I think I should keep it.

The color may be a little tricky to match with. It’s navy with white polka dots.  The stylist mentioned to pair it with the striped top, but I held them up together and felt very strongly that it wasn’t a good look for me. lol

  Also here is the clutch again. I just can’t decide! Gah!

Here is my OOTD for work today!

I think my arrowhead necklace added a fun touch that went along with the indian print theme. Woohoo, I’m trying harder to be more stylish! It’s really fun, but not something that comes naturally to me.

Have you ever tried Stitch Fix? Do you wanna try it? Would you keep the clutch?

If you think you wanna give it a try, I’d love it if you used my referral link. I get $25 credit when you schedule a fix!

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!

Stitch Fix!

So I tried Stitch Fix for the first time! I had a $20 credit for them in my PopSugar Box, and I thought it sounded really fun so I decided to give it a shot! Basically you create a profile with your taste and budget and body type and wants/needs and then a stylist looks over it and sends you a box based on your style preferences. I feel like my body type is a bit rare, so it’s hard to find clothes that fit me properly. REAL hard. I have really big shoulders, an average waist, and a bit butt. I’m SUPER curvy, so “flowy” clothes tend to look pretty dumpy on me. My go-to’s are things that fit snugly and are dark colors. That way they flatter and conceal me at the same time…. not that I claim to know anything about clothes… I can either pick and choose pieces to keep, keep it all for a discounted price, or choose to send it all back and eat the $20 styling fee.

I can’t decide what to do… except that I for sure don’t plan to keep it all. Help me decide???

Ok here we go: my first STITCHFIX box.

20140113-160354.jpg

The first thing I saw was a envelope with a nice personal note 🙂

20140113-160529.jpg

So here’s the first thing I tried on: plaid collared tank.

20140113-160150.jpg

20140113-160156.jpg

Here are my issues with it: too short, too thin, too see-through, and too tight through the top of the chest. It’s cute, and could be a very nice top to have if you could wear it on its own. BUt this would have to be for layering only since it’s so sheer. I know I’m sending it back for sure because I wouldn’t reach for it if I kept it.

Next: this plain black tank. 20140113-160207.jpg

I like the ruffle/pleat detail in the front. But it’s just a boxy black tank top… what do you think? Maybe it would be the kind of piece I would just go ahead and keep if I also loved everything else in the box in order to keep the discount.

This next piece is the one I am most “up in the air” about! It’s really pretty. I absolutely LOVE the color, but am not sure whether I’d wear this or not.

20140113-160220.jpg

Yeah, it’s pretty see-through but I have tanks I could layer with it.

The best part is the lacy upper back:20140113-160226.jpg

Here it is layered with a red tank:20140113-160233.jpg

I always feel frumpy in button-ups…. Are they supposed to be worn tucked in??? Does anyone even know? I am clueless.

They also included a skirt!20140113-160244.jpg

It’s very fun and flowy but I don’t really like the way the pleates poof out form the waist. It makes me feel like my hips are sticking out like saddlebags. I’ve been really wanting a skirt lately, though. I would keep it for sure if it was a brighter color and just a little bit shorter.

20140113-160251.jpg

Last but not least, I got a dress!20140113-160301.jpgI think I am way too tall for it, though.20140113-160308.jpg

I didn’t like the way the back of it hung. It just kinda dropped off way too high. It made me feel super naked. Like I was dressed like winnie the pooh.

It was a really nice quality dress though…

What should I do? Send it all back? Keep the red top? Keep the purple skirt?
