Stitch Fix Review # 2 – August 2016

FullSizeRender

Hi, I’m Sara & I have a a problem.

I’m so addicted to getting Stitch Fix Boxes in the mail.

I have been good and only been getting 1 fix/month for a long while, and then last month, I got TWO July Fixes (here & here).

So I decided for August I would only get my usual single fix.  But then this happened:

I WON A STITCH FIX CONTEST!!  I haven’t ever won anything this exciting, ever.  I was over the moon for days, I tell you, days.

So with my Stitch Fix credit burning holes in my pockets, I totally caved & schedule another August fix.  Because WHY NOT??

(If you are new to Stitch Fix skip to the end of this post for a short description of the whats and how-tos & for a link to sign up for your own box of happiness!)

Since I had lost my longtime stylist, I decided to give Jenn another shot (if you remember I wasn’t in love with my first August fix) because I hadn’t really asked for anything in my note, so there wasn’t a lot of direction (since I was expecting my old stylist to be styling me).

Here’s what my note said:

And when my box arrived, I was surprised to see that Jenn was not my stylist for this box after all, but a totally new girl, Kate, was.

But after looking at all the fabulous items, and feeling like it would be hard for me to decide on what to keep, I know I will keep one thing: KATE.  She did a great job on this box!

Floral, stripes, dress, denim: check, check, check, & half-check.  I asked for shorts, but got jeans, but that’s ok!

So many fun, pretty things to try on!

Out of the box, I immediately loved the dress & striped hoodie.  After trying things on, I’m unsure on both.  I have until Tuesday of THIS week to check out so give me feedback 🙂

Item # 1:  Skies are Blue Delila Embroidery Neckline Knit Top

IMG_4732

This is my least favorite item – it’s too blah of a color for me.  The cut is nice, and the pattern is fun though.

Me, hiding from the neighbors, because it’s embarrassing how frequently I pose for pictures in our front yard.

After trying this on, I’m still not loving it so much.  It’s probably going back.

Item # 2: Liverpool Collen 4 way stretch Straight Leg Jean

IMG_4733

I have to say I am really impressed with the length of these jeans!

IMG_4953

Here’s the thing with these jeans – I have dark skinnies from a previous fix that I l-o-v-e and I can cuff.  These I can’t cuff because they are baggy at the bottom.  I think I’ll send these back, too.

Item # 3:  Papermoon Jalen Lace Detail Dress

IMG_4734

This dress is amazing you guys.  I have nothing like it in my closet and it isn’t too short!

IMG_4932

Such a pretty floral print!

IMG_4930

My husband isn’t a fan of the shoulders on this dress….he thinks they are boxy & the top is a little too blouse-y.

IMG_4933

What do you guys think?  Keep or not?

Item # 4:  Loveappella Sevilla Funnel Neck French Terry Sweatshirt

IMG_4735

I love this one!  So soft & cosy!  And striped!

IMG_4976

IMG_4968

It’s such a fun piece!

IMG_4971

I love the details in the cuffs:

IMG_4975

I am pretty sure I’ll keep this!

Item # 5:  Papermoon Catarina Knit Top

IMG_4736

I love the color of this top!

IMG_4945

It’s super soft and a nice length.

IMG_4946

I’m not sure on this one either.  It seems a little plain Jane for $44.  It will probably go back unless you all convince me otherwise! 😉

IMG_4948

That’s it!

This was a great fix, especially considering that my stylist was completely new to me!  I need your help, though!  I have until Tuesday to check out: what do you think of the Papermoon dress?  Keep or no?

PS Like my necklace & earrings?  They are from Rocksbox!  For a limited time, For a limited time, anyone who signs up & use promo code sarabff504 will get their first month free (a $19 value!) and $10 to spend on anything you want to keep!Jewelry close up
