Fix #3–Stitch Fix Box #3,  special request! 

I got my #3 fix in on Friday. I wasn’t going to get a fix for another month or so (I set them on 3 month increments), but I special requested one to come in ASAP, due to my recent engagement. I have a girlfriend making me a special tee for my engagement party,  that I want to pair with a fun high-waisted black skirt and a chunky collared necklace (since the shirt is a plain white tee). I dreaded shopping and then I thought Stitch Fix would be perfect for this. I put in my note that I was looking for a few specific items (fun black high waisted skirt, and chunky collar necklace) and to refer to my pinterest board as I had pinned about 6 new pins with similar items. I also added anything white would be great, jeans, dress, whatever! 

I didn’t peek at my fix cause I was on vacation. Upon opening the fix I was a little disappointed, as there was no black skirt, not even in the note did she say hey didn’t have one, sorry, when I stressed this was the one item I was really getting my fix for. 🙁 But I will say even though this fix was my most expensive so far, it was by far more my style. 

 Papermoon Lonnie Crochet Back Knit Tank $38, paired with Warp + Weft Mattie Skinny Jean,  $98



First I would like to say I absolutely loved these skinny jeans. I don’t know about you but I always find it super hard to get white jeans on, they are always super tight in the legs and super unflattering. I’m 5’2″, 130 lbs, I wouldn’t think finding a nice material white jean would be so rough, but I’ve had no luck. These were great, perfect feel, material, weight. Loved them. They are just a smudge too tight. I’d love to try them again in a size up, but I would hate to spend this much on a size exchange and they not fit and get stuck with them. 

The shirt I love as well, just also a little too big (long really) and she actually sized me down to a small since I had size issues with mediums. Cute detail though and super comfortable. 


Laila Jayde, Bowie Solid Dolman Sleeve Top, $58
I also like this shirt a lot . I used to have a similar pink one, that I wore the crap out of!  It’s super flattering. It’s also pretty comfy. But it is a little on the heavy side, and since it would be another 5 months in this FL heat before I could wear it again, I’m gonna pass on it. I would maybe request it, in another fix though.
Market + Spruce, Carl Ruched Knit Dress, $58 

I like the price point of this dress and the fact it’s a little thicker material, so it is a little more on the flattering side, and you feel your getting good quality. Unfortunately I have a striped dress, so I don’t feel the need to pay for this one. I do think it’s flattering, and really comfortable. Could be casual or dressed up. 
Romolo, Montana Metal Starburst Necklace,  $34

This wasn’t the necklace I had in mind, and until I get my shirt back I’m not sure if it’s chunky and fun enough, but I am going to keep it and give it a try. I am glad that she included a collar necklace, as I requested. This is better quality than other jewelry I have received so I’m thrilled about that. I feel much better paying for it, that way. 
Overall, my fix was pretty good. I just didn’t get the items I was really looking for and these aren’t really calling my name for keepers. I would request the jeans again in a size up though, I think those were the best item in my fix! 1/5, with the potential  of 5/5.

Happy Monday!

Fix #2- Stitch Fix box!

image

My 2nd fix arrived! I peeked at this fix, and right off the bat loved the prices! I immediately thought my stylist must have really read my note, I was super exited, especially after my first fix was kind of a bust, as you can read here.

image

I liked my style cards, the items seemed way more my style than the previous fix. My note from my stylist, Denise, was super cut  too. She noted that she looked at my pinterest page, which is great. I really believe she did, too.

image

Prices were also more on point. $142 total is way more my ballpark of what I’m looking to pay.

Market and Spruce, Madrella Slouchy Boyfriend Knit Tank, $38

image

This was the item I was most disappointed about. I originally thought if anything I’d keep this, since it would only cost me an additional $18. But the shirt is huge. Not what I was expecting at all. I could literally keep it as a bathing suit cover up…

image

image

Verdict : Undecided

THML, Brandi Embroidered Skirt, $58

image

This skirt is not at all my style. I’m a little curvy on the bottom for being so short, not to mention I’m not as skinny as I was before becoming a mother, so I don’t find this flattering at all. Skinny tall people can rock these type skirts, that’s just not me.

image

Super unflattering! Verdict : not loving it

Papermoon Pontiac Crossback Knit Tank, $44

image

This shirt I think is super adorable. So my style. Super light weight, breathable, which is good for the Florida weather, plus the detail in the back is cute.

image

Verdict : undecided

Skies Are Blue, Olana Crochet Detail Top,  $48

image

This shirt I really love as well, it fits really well, tight enough on top and bottom but still loose enough to not be skin tight. I love the back. This is probably my favorite item in my fix.

image

Verdict : undecided, only because of price

Romolo, Willa Bar Drop Earrings, $28

image

I hate these earrings. Again, I feel like they are so cheap. You can honestly get better quality jewelry from Walmart than the items I’ve received so far.

Verdict: hate them.

Overall, I think my fix is a 2/5. Love the Papermoon and Skies are Blue tops. But considering to keep these two items I’d be spending an additional $72.00, I just can’t do it. I think that’s insane, personally. Neither one of these are super great quality in my opinion. I’m weighing the option of keeping everything, and seeing if I can’t sell a few items, or returning everything.

I’m really not sure if stitch fix is for me. The fixes as a whole are affordable, but items singularly are not. What’s the chance I stumble upon a 5/5 fix???

My stylist did do a great job this time though, that is one thing I can’t complain about!

Verdict: super undecided on what to do!!!

Fix #1 Update – Stitch Fix Keeper!

Hey ya’ll, as you read in my previous blog, you can check out here, I wasn’t too happy with my first fix. Originally I scored it a 0/5 and seriously debated on just letting them keep my $20 styling fee.

But…. I came to my senses and…

I decided on keeping the Bay to Baubles, Nordic Stone and Feather Necklace $28! I thought why lose my styling fee when I could just spend another $8 and keep the necklace. I thought maybe I would just gift it…. Then I tried it on tonight with my outfit….

image

… I must say I kinda like it! Maybe if I just stick to wearing it with a black shirt, I will learn to love it!

What do you think???

Happy Friday!

Fix #1-My first Stitch Fix Box

image

My Stitch Fix, Fix #1 finally arrived! I tried peeking online  (I don’t have an iPhone to be able to use their app 😕) , and I was a little worried when I read the names of a few of the items… and saw the prices. I picked the “cheaper the better” option, which is a step below the $50-$100/item option. Yet some of my items are much pricier than that.

Upon opening my styling card, I wasn’t too impressed either. #doublewammy

image

Bay to Baubles, Nordic Stone and Feather Necklace $28

image

Super disappointed with this necklace. It weighs about 1/4 of an ounce, literally light as a feather…which to me comes off as cheap. For a $28 necklace, it should not feel cheap. But that’s not what busted it for me, it’s the stone design.Returning

RD Style, Matt T-Shirt Knit Dress $58

image

Not loving this one either. It is super comfortable and super forgiving… But not very flattering. This is a dress that I wouldn’t mind picking up for $10, (on sale at a Ross) to run errands in, but I don’t see myself wanting to wear this to lunch with friends, or a day date with my man. It may be cute with a slim belt, but that’s not my style, my body type doesn’t bode well with that type of accessory. Returning

image

Le Lis, Sadria Contrast Trim Top, $44

image

I don’t love the print on this shirt, but it probably would have been a keeper had it fit better. It doesn’t look too bad from the front, but here is a side view:

image

It makes me feel pregnant! I’m all about the flowy top, they are my fav, but I think I would have liked this better in a small. Since I’m obviously not getting the discount, I can’t see myself paying $44 for this. Returning

Liverpool, Frankie Printed Cropped Jean, $78

image

image

I actually like the print on these, I think it’s fun. You can’t tell from too far away, but close up they are too cute. Unfortunately, they seem more like ankle length then cropped, yet they are more open then a skinny jean on the bottom and I just don’t like the way they look. I don’t like cuffed jeans either, so rolling them up isn’t an option (I tried it, promise). These just aren’t for me. Returning

Last but not least.

Renee C, Jaimie Eyelet Stripped Cardigan, $48

image

image

image

This one I tried to style as suggested on my style card… Did not make me like the jeans anymore, and especially wouldn’t wear it with the dress (the dress is blue and white, the cardigan is off-white). This happens to be the only item I would actually consider keeping. It is cute with jeans, warm yet light at the same time. But without the discount, even with my credit I can’t see myself spending $48 on this. Is it silly to rather let them keep my $20?? Undecided

image

At $172 with my discount, I don’t find this fix super expensive if I loved every item and were keeping them all. After all, the stylist has to get paid, the shipping and return shipping is plugged in there, not to mention the convenience and the overheard.

Overall, I think this fix is a total bust. I gave my stylist my pinterest board link, which you can view here and I don’t feel like she looked at it, at all. Plus I live in Florida and it’s about to be summer, I don’t really need jeans and a cardigan! But I’m optimistic, I think I may give it one more go before I quit it!
