Stitch Fix Review – April 2017

IMG_8921

Every month, when I sit down to write my next Stitch Fix review, I think “Man, this month has FLOWN by!”.  April is no different!  I can’t believe the month is already half over.

IMG_8922

My April Stitch Fix box came 5 days late, which ended up working well with my schedule to make time for taking pictures.  I had some serious battle of the wills going on about whether I should peek on my Stitch Fix app ahead of time or not, but in the end, I waited to be surprised.  I’m always happy I waited.

IMG_8782

I didn’t request anything specific this month, so this box was a complete surprise!  I did request a “budget” fix to see what price points looked like.  It turns out Stitch Fix on a budget is FUN!

(Btw, 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!)

IMG_8920

Right out of the box, I liked everything!  And this month, I thought it would be fun to take the kids to the park to play & fly kites for my photoshoot.  Let’s check out April’s box!

Item # 1:  Loveappella Nay Crochet Trim Knit Top

IMG_8783

First impression: I loved that this cream tank top wasn’t see-through!  That’s a rare quality in a light-colored cream top, in my experience.

IMG_8917

Unfortunately, the pros ended there for me.  I felt that the fit was a little off & I didn’t love the cut – it was boxy and too flowy at the bottom for my taste.

IMG_8916

Yep.  Sending this one back.  If only my muffin top was returnable, too!  😉

Item # 2:  Fun2Fun Andrae Tie Neck Blouse

IMG_8785

I’m a sucker for floral patterns – this one is no exception!

IMG_8919

Isn’t it cute?  The drawstring is a nice touch, too.  The pattern, like I said, is adorable!  And the fabric was light & airy, too.

IMG_8918

The length, though, was short on me.  I plan to send this one back, too.

Item # 3:  Papermoon Lonni Crochet Back Knit Top

IMG_8787

This was my least favorite item in the box – I like the crochet detailing, especially in the back, but I wasn’t a huge fan of the plainness of the top.  But check out that price!!  $38?!  Way to go Stitch Fix for a budget-friendly item!

IMG_8914

IMG_8862

It grew on me after trying it on.  And even more after reviewing the pictures.

IMG_8915

I dunno, y’all.  I might end up keeping it.  It’s cute, subtle, and a good price!

Item # 4:  Dear John Lillie Cuffed Demin Shorts

IMG_8784

You’ve been seeing these shorts all through my previous pictures.  I couldn’t really change bottoms in the park, so I wore them with all 4 of the tops Stitch Fix sent me.

FullSizeRender

I love the Dear John brand.  These shorts are no different: great quality, good length, and good fit.

IMG_8911

My only minor, small complaint?  The cuff isn’t sewn in place.  It came pre-rolled, but after 1 wash, it will be hard to re-roll.   And this mama don’t do ironing  Ain’t nobody got time for that.  Because of that, I’ll probably send the shorts back.

Item # 5:  Leo & Nicole Amalia Knit Top

IMG_8786

I saved the best (& cheapest) for last!

IMG_8913

I. LOVE. THIS. TOP.

IMG_8912

It’s long enough to wear with leggings.  The pattern is orange and I have nothing orange in my closet.  I can’t remember the last time I tried on something orange that I liked that wasn’t Halloween themed.

IMG_8909

I’m keeping it!  At $34 it’s basically a no-brainer.

 

Overall, this month’s fix was SO fun to try on and decide on.  I would have kept those shorts, if not for the cuff/roll not being sewn in place.  That orange top – my keeper – is just the best!  I love it.

Would you have kept something different?  What item was your favorite?

Stitch Fix Review – March 2017

IMG_8103

March has arrived & is already half over!  So far, I think the month of March has brought colder days that February, ironically.  But I’m still in a SPRING mood – so much so, that I put most of my sweaters away and pulled out my lighter items.  Maybe that was a little premature, given our frosty weather (there’s SNOW in the forecast this weekend, y’all), but I couldn’t help it!

IMG_8180

I pushed my March Stitch Fix box up by a week so that it would arrive before vacation.  I figured I would rather have the new clothes *before* vacation and not afterwards.

IMG_8178

March’s box was small but packed a BRIGHT punch!  I loved the floral print immediately out of the box (I’m totally crushing on florals this spring).

IMG_8181

I asked for another maxi dress this fix.  If you remember from February’s fix, I received a maxi dress that I almost kept but decided, ultimately, that the elastic waistline was a deal breaker for me.  But I really wanted a maxi dress to take on vacation and I figured if ANYONE could find another maxi dress long enough for me, it would be Stitch Fix.

IMG_8179

(Btw, 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!)

IMG_8100

Let’s dig in to March’s Stitch Fix and see what Kate sent me!

*Spoiler alert* she did find another maxi that was almost TOO long for me (WHAT!?!).

Item # 1:  Catherine Malandrino Meia Ladder Bar Pendant Necklace

IMG_8028

When this necklace arrived, it was a tangled mess that took me a good 10 minutes & several cuss words to unravel.

IMG_8183

This was the only item Kate sent that was on my Pinterest board.  I love pendant necklaces of all kinds these days.

IMG_8182

I love the layers and pendant length.  I wasn’t a huge fan of the tail ends.  According to the style card the necklace should look like this on:

IMG_8177

But those two little dangles look weird to me.  I pulled them through, making the necklace longer, and liked it much better.  You’ll see that in the next set of pictures.

Item # 2:  Lemon Tart Shania Knit Maxi Dress

IMG_8030

“Holy cow!  That is an expensive dress!” were basically my first thoughts after checking the price list.  I mean, wow.  This is a $100 maxi dress.  Ouch.

But you guys, this is, by far, hands down, no competition, THE LONGEST MAXI DRESS I’ve  ever tried on.  Ever.  And I’m 6 foot tall.

IMG_8175

Besides the price, my other complaint about this dress is that the V-neck is SUPER deep.  I would never wear it without a cami underneath, like what is pictured.

IMG_8176

Because of the price and v-neck cut, I probably won’t keep this maxi, even though it truly is deliciously long.  It pains me to send it back for that reason alone.  PAINS ME.

Item # 3:  Olive & Oak Ailie Swing Knit Tank

IMG_8032

This tank top was my husband’s favorite of the bunch.

IMG_8173

I do really love that it’s knit & the colors are great!

IMG_8172

But I’m not a huge fan of the pattern, personally.  I try to think: “would I pick this out in a store, or am I just tempted to keep it because Stitch Fix sent it to me?”.

IMG_8174

I feel like outside of it being a Stitch Fix item, I wouldn’t keep this.  I’ll probably send this back.

Item # 4:  Daniel Rainn Albado Crew Neck Blouse

IMG_8031

Item # 5:  Dear John Finnegan Cuffed Shorts

IMG_8029

Kate told me to style these 2 items together, so I did. 🙂

IMG_8171

Now *this* is an outfit I can picture wearing on a cruise ship!  I mean, besides the pale girl wearing this outfit, the whole ensemble is screaming SUMMER and BEACH!

IMG_8169

When I took these pictures today, it was 33 degrees out.  I was mentally working really hard to think WARM thoughts!

IMG_8170

I love, love the shorts.  I like the brand “Dear John” and have a couple pairs of that brand already.  They are a good length; they don’t ride up or make me pick a wedgie every 10 minutes, which is a great plus for anyone who happens to be around me.  And this color is such a great pale blue, with white undertones.  I plan to keep the shorts!

IMG_8168

Let’s talk about this blouse.  It’s gorgeous, super fun, & flattering (not too boxy or billowy).  But it’s 100% polyester (not my favorite fabric).  And Daniel Rainn is one of those brands I can easily find local to me at TJ Maxx, so it’s always hard for me to pay more than $20 for the brand.  I don’t think I will keep this either, just because of the cost.  But I could be convinced otherwise, if you think it’s a keeper!

IMG_8167

All in all, I loved my March Stitch Fix box!  There were, as usual, a couple near-misses, and one great pair of shorts!!

Would you have kept something different?  What item was your favorite?

Stitch Fix Review – January 2017

img_7333

My last 2 fixes were flops and I sent everything back two months in a row (yikes!).  So I decided I needed to do a rehab of my style profile and Pinterest board.

I deleted almost all of my old pins, spent an embarrassing amount of hours browsing Pinterest for fresh Stitch Fix pins, and left a note for my stylist to draw as much from my Pinterest board as she could.

And then I waited.  My January box came a bit early, which was a nice surprise!

img_7322

I hoped that good things came in small packages, but my Stitch Fix bundle was small for the middle of winter.  Then again, when I took pictures today, it was 60 degrees and sunny.  On January 21.  Crazy!

img_7325

(Btw, 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!)

Kate, my stylist, sent 3 items straight off my Pinterest board!  I was super excited to see the very coveted Olive & Oak Raglan top.  And, spoiler alert, I’m tempted to keep all 5 items.  But I’m getting ahead of myself & I want your input, so let’s check it out!

Item # 1:  Le Lis Woodburn Lace Back Knit Top

img_7308

Pulling this top out of the box, I immediately liked the jewel tone & lace detail.

img_7348

Kate said that she sent a size up for extra length, which is great, but I felt like the top made me look a little pregnant since the front was so baggy.

img_7343

But check out that LACE!

img_7344

I’m on the fence about this one; what do you all think?  If I keep it, I would go down a size.

Item # 2:  Market & Spruce Wilco Solid Quilted Vest

img_7306

This vest was from my Pinterest board.  My initial thought was I liked it better in the photo than in person.  It’s a little shiny in person.

img_7363

It fits really well but is a little out of my style comfort zone.

img_7370

But it did pair really nice with the raglan top Kate also sent.  And looking at it in the pictures, I like the vest.  This is the other item I’m on the fence about – thoughts??  Should I keep this?

Item # 3:  Olive & Oak Mulliken Raglan Striped Knit Top

img_7304

Oh my gosh you guys.  I love this top.

img_7357

Burgundy stripes!?!  Yes, please!  And it’s super soft.

img_7354

I didn’t pin this version of this raglan top, but I love it!  It’s a keeper!

img_7358

Item # 4:  Le Lis Adea Faux Suede Button Back Knit Top

img_7305

This top was a surprise & I thought I wouldn’t be a fan because of the suede.

img_7389

But as it turns out, I really love the cut & length of this top!  Plus the button back detail is so fun!

img_7382

This top improves on the basic black (or dark charcoal gray) shirt – I really love it.  I’m fairly sure I’ll keep it, too!

Item # 5:  Octavia Ellis Elephant Print Infinity Scarf

img_7303

This was another item that I pinned on my board – it’s a little out of my comfort zone, too. Elephant print scarf!

img_7372

Kate told me to pair it with the Le Lis Suede top & I did.

img_7375

I think I might keep this scarf, too!  It’s a fun print, it’s infinity (my favorite kind of scarf), and it’s cheap (for Stitch fix!).

img_7387

My January fix was so much better than my previous 2 fixes have been.  The fact I want to keep 3 out of 5 items right off the bat is unusual for me.  I have until Monday to decide on the Jewel toned lace top & the gray vest – so let me know what you think!

Stitch Fix Review – December 2016

img_6815

December is well underway & with it, a new Stitch Fix review!  I postponed this box a couple weeks because I knew that earlier in the month would be too busy for me to write a review.  Plus, it’s kind of fun getting a box of goodies right around Christmas; I mean, it feels like Christmas anytime a Stitch Fix box shows up at my door, but now it actually IS!

(Btw, 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!)

For my December box, I asked my stylist, Kate, for tops to wear with leggings & boots because basically that’s ALL I wear in the winter months.  I also mentioned a pendant necklace & Christmas Eve dress.

screen-shot-2016-12-06-at-3-55-20-pm

As per usual, Kate listened to my note and sent the things I asked for (she’s fantastic like that).

img_6813

My initial thought was there wasn’t a whole lot of color here – kind of dull colors that matched the season.

img_6821

But, as always, I was excited to try it all on and see what fit & worked for me!

Item # 1:  Bancroft Leighton Metal Bauble Necklace

img_6881

First impressions of this necklace is that it isn’t something I would EVER pick out for myself.  It’s a little too gaudy for my tastes.

img_6823

After trying it on with a couple outfits I already own and pairing it with the clothes that came in my box, I still didn’t like it – this is going back (I would have preferred a pendant necklace for sure!)

img_6863

Item # 2:  Laila Jayde Cordi Button Cuff Knit Top

img_6877

Pulling this top out of the box, I liked it!  I don’t have anything in my closet this color & it’s totally in season this fall/winter.  Plus the length is fantastic, a tunic, which is what I wanted.

img_6861

And the button cuffs were a cute detail, too.

img_6854

But after trying it one, the first comment my husband made was that the top is see-through.  And it is (bummer).  I *know* I can wear a cami under it, but for $58, I don’t want to have to – I wish this top was a bit thicker.  I’ll be sending this back, too.

img_6858

Item # 3:  41Hawthorn Eevie Textured Sweater Dress

img_6878

So I was a bit bummed to see this dress in my fix.  I did want a Christmas Eve dress, but I was hoping to get something more unique & not just a plain, black dress.

img_6845

The fabric is pretty rough, so it’s not a comfortable dress.

img_6849

And it’s short-sleeved, which is not weather appropriate for winter.  I know, I could add a cardigan, but for $88, I want a dress that is fun, unique, colorful, and warmer.  This goes back, too.

img_6851

Item # 4:  Papermoon Belford Raglan Knit top

 

img_6879

So Kate said in her note that I could wear this Raglan with leggings or jeans, but this top was WAY too short for leggings (I paired it with them so you can see).

img_6866

It’s a soft, cute top, and I could wear it with jeans, but it’s a total no-go for leggings.

img_6867

It’s a little pricey for the simplicity of it ($48), so I think I’ll send this one back, too.  If it was longer, I’d be more inclined to keep it.

Item # 5:  Hummingbird Bee Hooded Pocket Cardigan

img_6880

When I pulled this cardigan out of the box, I thought “Holy crap, I’m keeping this for SURE”, which is what I basically think about any cardigan that exists.  I love them.  I would wear them ALL the time.

img_6876

It’s so warm.  So soft.  Nice & long.  And it’s hooded!

img_6874

It’s basically all my favorite things in a cardigan.  My only complaint is that it doesn’t hold a shape well; so it looks pretty unflattering unless I’m holding it in place.

img_6875

I think that I dislike the cut of this cardigan enough, that I’ll send it back…with a few tears…

img_6869

So: if you are keeping track, my plan is to send all 5 items back.  That’s something that rarely happens to me, but this fix was just off for me.  Maybe, after 2 years of Stitch Fix, I’m getting too picky?  Or maybe Stitch Fix can’t read my mind ALL the time 😉

Whatever the reason, this fix wasn’t my favorite but that’s ok!  Hopefully my stylist does better next time 🙂

What do you think?  Would you have kept something that I sent back?

Stitch Fix Review – November 2016

img_6378

Fall is well underway and it’s time for my November Stitch Fix Review!  I asked Kate, my stylist, for some fun Fall pieces and jewel tones (because I’m loving that color scheme these days):

screen-shot-2016-10-13-at-9-51-55-pm

The tunic I asked for wasn’t in stock (boo!) but Kate sent some fun, colorful pieces in its stead, and I was immediately drawn towards the soft, gray tunic peeking out.

(Btw, 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!)

 

img_6381

Let’s try on!

Item # 1:  Fate Goodwin Cowl Neck Sweater

img_6347

I had this sweater pinned on my Pinterest Board as something I liked.

img_6417

And, boy, is this sweater SOFT.  It has 18% wool in it, and usually I can’t wear wool BUT man, I wore this around the house for an hour without any problems or itchiness.

img_6404

It’s a little see-through and thin, plus the fit is VERY loose, so at the wrong angle, I look HUGE, but I might just not care and keep this anyway.  It’s such a comfy piece.  I’m undecided on this top.

img_6407

img_6403

Item # 2: Market & Spruce Clarke Layered Hem V-Neck Pullover

img_6345

So Kate mentioned in her note that she sent this sweater for a better green color option than the top she sent last fix (see it HERE).

img_6439

I have decided something: I am just not a fan of green.  I didn’t love this sweater.  It’s soft, but the layered hem in the front is a little odd to me.  And the v-neck isn’t my favorite.  I added a blue vest just to see what I would think and still just “meh”.

img_6450

I’m planning to return this one.

Because Kate suggested pairing them together, let’s move onto Item # 3!

Item # 3:  Shiraleah Maxine Wrap Scarf

img_6344

I paired this scarf with the Market & Spruce green sweater & I felt like I was ready for Christmas!

img_6451

img_6456

While I L-O-V-E Christmas, I don’t love this combo.  I think it stems from the sweater and then the scarf, while super cute & fun, is bulky and awkward.  I would be sweating after 5 minutes of wearing it!

 

img_6461

I’m planning to send the scarf back, too.  *BAH HUMBUG!*  😉

Item # 4:  Loveappella Ledia Woven Detail Knit Top

img_6346

First impressions of this top was that I would keep it!

img_6431

I mean it’s so cute!  I love a mixed patterned top!

img_6430

And it’s knit, so it’s so soft and perfect for a stay at home mom.

img_6433

My husband wasn’t a huge fan of this one, though.  He didn’t like the pattern in the back.  So I’m undecided on this one, too!

Item # 5: Pixley Borrego V-Neck Sweater

img_6348

Look at those pretty jewel tones & stripes!

img_6421

Another plus was that this sweater was very long in both the sleeves & torso, just the way I like it!

img_6423

This is a cute top, that can easily be thrown on with a pair of jeans and booties, like I did in the pictures.  It’s knit, so it’s very comfortable, too.

Overall, I loved this fix!  Kate is totally amazing, as usual, and this was a fantastic Stitch Fix!  I’m debating on keeping the gray sweater, even with the boxy fit and wool mixed fabric, and the Loveappella top because my husband isn’t a fan of the print in the back.

What do you guys think?  What would you keep?

Stitch Fix Review – October 2016

img_6092

I can’t believe it’s October already!  September just flew by – we celebrated my daughter’s 5th birthday with a surprise (to her) DISNEY WORLD trip & we all got sick upon arriving home, so some highs & lows for the month of September.

I received my October box a few days ago but just now have made time to try on & think about what I might want to keep.

img_6095

I did things a little differently for my Stitch Fix note & requests this month.  I asked Kate to send me a “whole outfit”.  Now, since I have large feet (hello, size 11s), Stitch Fix doesn’t carry shoes in my size (sad).

So knowing I wouldn’t be eligible for shoes, I asked for: a top, pair of pants/jeans, accessory, bag, & then maybe a cardigan or dress for the 5th piece.  Kate sent some fun pieces:

img_6119

(Btw, 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!)

I was a little sad on the lack of color, but beyond that, my first thoughts were that I really liked aspects of each item.

img_6105

Let’s dig in!

Item # 1:  Dolce Vita Sahara Lasercut Saddle Bag

img_6140

I liked the color and laser cut/detailing of this bag!

img_6181

Plus the size wasn’t too large or small for my tastes!

img_6097

I loved the inside fabric – so fun & colorful!

img_6183

But here’s the thing – I have a bag super similar to this one already, Moda Luxe brand.  It’s hard for me to want to have 2 purses that are so similar.  I’m probably going to send this back, even though I really like it.

Item # 2:  Romolo Genevieve Stacked Chevron Pendant Necklace

img_6142

So this necklace is ADORABLE.

img_6104

I’ve been in the world of Stitch Fix long enough now that I know this is also a super popular piece.

img_6172

I love it but again – and I kid you not – I have an almost identical necklace I bought from TJ Maxx that is so similar, I wouldn’t keep this one, too.  Otherwise this would be a keeper, too!

Since this is a “whole outfit” fix, I am going to list the next 3 items together, because I styled them as an outfit 🙂

Items #3-5:  Market & Spruce Arcola Side Binding Knit Top, Market & Spruce Alan French Terry Asymmetrical Zip Cardigan, and Just Black Adorra Skinny Jean

img_6138

img_6139

img_6141

So here’s what everything looks like together!

img_6189

The jeans are nice & stretchy, super long, and soft.

img_6177

Long enough to cuff even!  I have a couple pairs of dark wash skinny jeans though, so I’m wishing these were another wash.  I’m not sure I want to spend $88 on another pair of dark skinnies.

img_6178

The Market & Spruce green knit top is SO soft but I am not a huge fan of the color.  Plus it’s very flowy and looks boxy in my opinion.  I don’t plan to keep it.

img_6168

And finally, the cardigan is such a steal (price-wise) that I almost knew I would keep it before trying it on.

img_6191

Zipping it up was a little difficult.  😉

img_6192

And my husband isn’t a fan of it zipped (he says it’s too bulky in the front with extra fabric).  But I’m keeping it to wear unzipped.  So soft & budget-friendly.

img_6194

The whole box in one outfit:

What a fun box to try on!  I’ve never done a special request for an outfit like that, so it was a neat month 🙂  I am on the fence on the jeans, would have kept the necklace & bag if I didn’t have pieces almost identical, and will probably keep the navy cardigan.  The only piece I didn’t like was the green knit top.  I’d say this was a fantastic Stitch Fix month!

What about you?  What would you have kept?

Old Navy Review: The mustard tunic

OldNavyReview

I have another Old Navy reveal for you today!  With Black Friday quickly approaching, I am getting lots of goodies in the mail (yay packages!).  In fact, I have more Old Navy clothes coming next week because I got 50% off my entire order – a pre-Black Friday discount.  So fun!

This order, though, was placed entirely because the gorgeous mustard tunic/dress.  I saw this beauty on someone’s outfit of the day (OOTD) post on Facebook and totally fell in love with the color (I am loving mustard this season).  But when I went to buy it, the mustard color was completely out of stock.

Commence:  Operation stalk Old Navy until they re-stock.

They added more in a week ago – and I jumped on it!  I also added some tall leggings in colors I didn’t have to avoid shipping charges.  Sidenote:  I love Old Navy’s leggings.  They are thick and well-made.  The fact that they carry talls is just icing on the cake!

Here’s what I happily got in the mail!

2 pairs of leggings – charcoal gray & wine color.  I love them both!

And the beautiful mustard tunic (on me – tall girl problems)/dress:

I wore it yesterday for the first time & had fun styling it!  I started with a vest & scarf, plus leggings & boots.

Then dropped the vest & just a scarf:

And then dropped the scarf – plain jane.

I also added some of my favorite Chloe + Isabel jewelry to it – mustard is such a fun color to accessorize.
