Happy Friday! It's been one hell of a week for only being 4 days of work. I didn't even get to the grocery store until late Wednesday night, much less cook any meals worth sharing!
It's alright, though, because my Stitch Fix came yesterday and I even got my act together enough to take pictures and write a blog post about it! I also got my act together enough to turn off my automatic scheduled fixes because unfortunately, or fortunately? I have more important things to spend my money on these days. Like Orangetheory Fitness (review coming soon - probably) and our trip to Italy in the Fall.
Before we get started, here is a bit about Stitch Fix if you don't already know:
- It is a personal styling service in which you fill out a style profile, give them links to your Pinterest style board and leave notes for your stylist as regularly or irregularly as you'd like.
- Your stylist takes the time to handpick 5 items for your fix that they think you'll love. These items vary from clothes to jewelry, scarves, purses and even shoes. For my Stitch Fixes I only ask for clothes because that is the area where I lack styling ability.
- They ship you your fix, you receive it and have approximately 2 days to try everything on and decide if you love it or hate it. Then you send back what you don't want in a pre-paid envelope and keep the items you couldn't part with.
- Last little details, Stitch Fix has a $20 fee for each fix sent to you. If you purchase any items the $20 goes towards your purchase and if you purchase all five items you get 25% off! You can get a Fix as often as you want. I am signed up to receive them monthly but I can turn that off at any time, set it up to send only when I request one or I could even bump it up to every two weeks (if only Justin wouldn't have a fit over that...)
I'm not going to lie, it was hard to turn off my monthly fixes when this one was SO good.
Also, check it out - I'm blonde again!
Le Lis - Addah Knit Maxi Dress
Medium - $74
I'm not generally into maxi dresses; however, the last maxi skirt Stitch Fix sent and this dress were keepers. So maybe I AM into the whole maxi style?! I was looking for easily packable, flowy dresses for Italy and this one hit the mark. I love the pattern and the colors and although it is long it is so pretty and fresh! Into my closet it went to be worn many, many times this summer.
Pixley - Mavis Dress
Medium - $68
I generally love everything Pixley has to offer so I was excited when I pulled this bad boy out of the box. I will say, though, the straps are a bit too far in on my chest and so the sides by my arms gap a tiny bit. I decided after seeing the pictures that I don't care, though and kept it anyways. I love the pattern and color and with a belt it is the perfect summer dress. Plus, most the time I'll have a jean jacket on!
Kut From the Kloth - Roxanne Drawstring Linen Short
Size 4 - $48
Ignore that my entire outfit is wrinkly. I can't tell you how excited I was to get these shorts. First of all, they're linen with an ELASTIC waist and nothing is easier to wear or more comfortable than linen. Especially when it has a stretchy forgiving wasteband. Second, good length and third, great color. I want them in every color now. Gosh, they're comfortable!
Collective Concepts - Krissa Keyhole Halter Blouse
Small - $54
OK, I'm a huge proponent of bras with straps. I generally never buy anything that I have to wear a strapless bra or sticky boobs with but... This fix proved me wrong because three of the five pieces require strapless undergarments. I kind of love this top, the pattern and color are fun and I think it's quite flattering. Keeper!
Just Black - Adorra Skinny Jean
Size 4 - $88
Are you catching the trend? Yup, I kept all five items! By the way, this red blouse came in my last fix and I lovvvve it. I didn't think that I needed any more skinny jeans... But then I tried these on. They're crazy soft, a new brand and the PERFECT fit and length. Happy happy!
What did you think of my 15th fix on the blog?? Oh Stitch Fix, how I'm going to miss you.
