Stich Fix

October Stitch Fix Review

Hey friends! I've been a little lax with my stitch fix reviews these past few months. Honestly, I've been really disappointed with them. September's fix was terrible-- I didn't like any thing and I sent it all back right away. The next fix was almost as bad (I did keep one shirt.) I was on the verge of quitting. And then I got my last fix, and boy my stylist, Tillie, hit it out of the park this time! I love almost everything. 

Here are the goodies I received:

Stitch Fix Late October Review
Stitch Fix Late October Review 2

1. Fierro Elbow Patch Crew Neck Sweater

I LOVE this sweater! I'm not a fan of pink, but I love the hot pink elbow patches on this sweater. It's so fun! It was definitely a keeper. No doubt about it.

2. Benzer Mixed Material Sweater

Another hit. I love the color, and I love the faux "shirt" that peeks out from the bottom of the sweater. It's super cute.

3. Mallory Ruffle Back Open Cardigan

This is a fun cardigan! It fits well, I like the grey color, and the ruffle back detail is really fun. Another keeper.

4. Ricardo Pleat Detail Sleeveless Silk Blouse

This was the only piece I was a little lukewarm about. It's a little extra flowy, but I think it still looks okay. I definitely need to wear a sweater over this blouse (not a fan of bare arms.) My fix would have more expensive if I sent it back, so, I kept it.

5. Henry Birds on Branch Infinity Scarf

I. LOVE. THIS. SCARF. I've worn it nearly every day (If not at work, then at home!) I LOVE the color (orange! YAY!) and I ADORE the pattern (birds! YAY!) This is my first infinity scarf. I think I'm hooked!

You guys,  I've fallen back in love with Stitch Fix! I admit, it was rocky there for a few months, but, I'm glad I stuck with them. They listened to me and pulled through. Thank you! (Now I can't wait for my next fix!)

My third Stitch Fix (August Review)

Oh Happy Day! I received my third Stitch Fix in the mail this weekend! Another Fix, another batch of clothes/accessories that I love and want to keep!

1. Tatiana Graphic Print Button Front Blouse

I LOVE this blouse! I love the color, I love the pattern, I love the fit. It is perfect! Loose and flowy without being frumpy. It's perfect with a little tank/cami underneath and it looks great with jeans. This is definitely a keeper!!  

EDIT 8/2015: This blouse has been in my closet/wardrobe rotation for a year now. EVERY time I wear it, I get compliments! This has been my most favorite item that I've received from Stich Fix. (Closely followed by the Henry Birds on Branch Infinity Scarf)

2. Tina Striped Open Cardigan

I'm on the fence about this one. I like the stripes, I like the color, I like the lightweight knit fabric... The style of sweater is a little out of my comfort zone. G said it was weird (well, he's a guy and has no fashion sense!) I took a pic and showed my mom and she really liked it on me. I may keep it just because it's a little different and pretty versatile.

3. Jillian Crochet Detail Tank

Another winner from my stylist! I love this tank top. It's a great color and I love the crochet detail on the back. Most of all-- I love the fit! Another flowy top to hide my fluff!!!!

4. Gabbiey Sleeveless Maxi Dress

Oh... this dress... well, it made me cry. A lot. And swear off food (yeah, that lasted until dinner time...)  I put it on and like what I saw from about the boobs upward, it was what was below the boobs that made me cry. Even with shape wear like my stylist suggested, this dress looked terrible on me. Well, I'm sure G would have loved it on me, but I hated it and felt terrible in it.  I don't think I'm ready for a maxi dress this year. :(  If you are a skinny gal, this dress would look amazing on you. Girls like me with extra fluffy middles... not so much. I'm sending this back for sure.

5. Lynx Layered Beaded Necklace

This necklace is pretty and I love the colors, but I'm not in love with the necklace. My stylist really did pay attention to my profile-- I mentioned that I'm allergic to gold so she made sure there wasn't any gold in this necklace. How sweet! I am, however, going to send this necklace back. I'm going to hold out for one that I LOVE.

 

I love the fact that I'm beginning to have "grown up clothes" in my closet finally (sorry Old Navy...) and that the few items I've kept from Stitch Fix have become my new favorites and my new "go-to" pieces when I want to look nice(r). 

I'm looking forward to my next fix!

My second Stitch Fix (a review)

You guys, can I just tell you how much I love Stitch Fix? Seriously! I received my second fix in the mail on Friday!!! **squee!!** I excitedly opened it up and I was not disappointed! This fix was even better than the first! I wanted soooooo much to keep everything in the box!

So, here's what my stylist (Lauren) sent:

 

Number 1: Eames Geo Print Gathered Waist Shirt

Stitch Fix- Eams Geo Print Gathered Waist Knit Shirt

I LOVE this shirt! It has a really fun pattern, it's a great color, and it hides all my fluffy bits! This is totally a keeper!!!

 

Number 2: Blake Side Ruched V-Neck Knit Shirt

Stitch Fix- Blake Side Ruched V-Neck Shirt

I took this shirt out of the box and I LOVED the color, and I LOVED the ruched style. However, I did not love how this shirt clung to my fluffy tummy as if to accentuate it. **sad face** This one has to go back.

 

Number 3: Emmett Boyfriend Jean

I'm usually a bootleg jean kinda girl and lets leave it at that. The boyfriend jean did nothing to help flatter my frame at all (truthfully, it reminded me a little bit of skinny jeans because the legs were so narrow and tapered...)  Because it sits lower on my waist, it bought out my fluffy muffin top that I try so desperately to hide. This one goes back.

 

Number 4: Cheli Striped Maxi Dress

Stitch Fix- Cheli Striped Maxi Dress

After the maxi skirt from the last fix, I was secretly (super secretly) hoping that I would get another one. I was kinda excited when I opened the box and saw this dress (so was the husby!) I tried it on and while the husby liked it, I didn't like how I looked in it. I thought that it was too... form fitting, and that it accentuated my tummy fluff too much. Sadly, this one goes back too. I don't think I'm ready for maxi dresses yet... **sad face**

 

Number 5: Clarita Messenger Bag

Stitch Fix- Clarita Messenger Bag

My stylist did a great job with this one. I mentioned in my profile that I HATE purses (but I love shoes? go figure!) but I was in the market for a new messenger bag as the one I've been carrying around for 7 or 8 years is on it's last leg. I like this bag. A lot. It's beautiful, well made, and is really comfy to wear. I'm on the fence about this one. I don't know if I'm ready for a "grown up" bag yet.... I've got one more day to decide!

What do you think? Should I keep the grown up (purse like!) messenger bag? Send it back since I'm not exactly 100% in love with it?

This fix has renewed my commitment to getting in shape... well... at least taming my fluffy bits. I would have kept everything in this fix if I wasn't so fluffy. Back to no sugar and less grains. and more walking.

My first Stitch Fix (a review)

So, if you know me in real life, you know that I need some serious help when it comes to fashion. My father-in-law has jokingly said that he's going to call and see if he can get me on "What Not to Wear."  (He really means that in the most kind way.) I wear the same thing (or slight variations) all. the. time. Here's my 7 day a week wardrobe: Jeans, sweater or t-shirt and cardigan to cover my arms, and gym shoes. I never wear shorts. Like, seriously, never. And I never wear skirts. I will only wear a dress if I go to a wedding (and yes, I tried to get out of wearing a dress for my own wedding!)  Yeah, I need a little help. I have the hardest time picking out clothes that are age appropriate and flattering. I'm not a size 2, i have some...  extra fluff... and I'm short, so I feel that nothing ever looks good one me.

A few months ago I decided that I needed an intervention of sorts. I've been hearing a lot of positive things about Stitch Fix and I've seen a lot of cute wardrobe pieces on Pinterest and blogs. Everyone seems pretty happy with this service.  I'm a fan of not having go to the mall to shop.  If I'm going to try on clothes and cry, I'd rather do it from the comfort of home, ya know? (Did I mention that I might also have some body image issues?)  I also like that the stylist gurus often seem to send clothes that you might normally try on. That's a bonus. I tend to gravitate to the same things in the same colors. A girl can only have so many black, grey, and green shirts. Also, I know it's pretty silly, but I really like the little idea cards that they include to show you two different styling possibilities for the pieces they send.

So...I signed up!

I got my first Fix this week!  No, I didn't take photos of me wearing the pieces. We're not there yet, internet.

Here's what my stylist guru (Tonh) sent me:

Stitch Fix Review 1- Ashford Cross-Front Slub Knit Shirt

I loved this shirt when I took it out of the box. However, it looked AWFUL on me when I tried it on.  The way that the fabric crisscrosses in the front center was not flattering to a girl with extra belly fluff, know what I mean? So, I sent this back. *sad face*

Stitch Fix Review 1- Delmont Lace Chambray Shirt

This Chambray shirt was a HUGE miss. I took it out of the box and hated it immediately. It seriously reminded me of something a mom in the 80's would have worn. I know I'm old, but... no. I tried it on, and I hated it even more. Definitely sent this sucker back.

Stitch Fix Review 1- Bowie Solid Dolman Sleeve Top

When I took out this top, I wasn't a fan of the color (it's PINK!) and not sure about the dolman sleeve style looking good on my short and fluffy frame. I tried it on and fell in love. Hard. It looked great on me! This is for sure an example of something I would have never ever tried on in a store. This was a keeper!!

Stitch Fix Review 1- Suzie Stripe & Dot Knit Shirt

I thought this shirt was fun when I took it out of the box. Stripes and little dots? Definitely different. I tried it on and I just didn't like it. I felt that the black and white stripes being that wide and horizontal looked like a convict uniform. I sent it back.

Stitch Fix Review 1- Gabe Striped Maxi Skirt

First of all, when I opened the box and found a skirt in there, I was pretty disappointed. I don't wear skirts. I tried it on, prepared to hate it, but... it looked cute and was fun.. I kinda liked it. Not enough to keep it, though. I didn't care for the color and I just didn't have anything in my closet that would work with this. Yet. Receiving and keeping a different maxi skirt might not be out of the realm of possibility in the future... (did I just hear you gasp?)

I really enjoyed this first fix (with the exception of 80's mom-style denim shirt) and I'm definitely looking forward to my second one (not until July! Ugh!)
