STITCH FIX | JUNE: My Brightest Box Ever!

Tuesday, June 16, 2015


I finally got a new Stitch Fix after taking off several months. I had a few fixes back in the winter that I kept pieces from, but I think I was just keeping them because I wanted something new and now I'm not really wearing most of them, however, there were a few sweaters I loved and will wear in the Fall. I never posted those because life was just too chaotic and honestly I'm not at my best. My body is not cooperating and I have a lot of negative things to say about myself in most of these pictures - BUT I'm not going to say them. I'm not fishing - just being honest - I'm having a hard time with pictures of myself these days, but in the words of Amy Poehler "Who Cares, Who Cares, Who Cares!" I am not perfect and that's okay. Moving on. 


Stitch Fix is a great way for me to find unique things and typically I love what I keep and wear it over and over and over. I will be going on Season 3 in this sweater this Fall and have no plans to stop wearing it anytime soon. 

If you've never experienced Stitch Fix or have been wanting to try them, I still highly recommend it! Even though I have a bit of an attitude in the unboxing video I posted on the Behind the Camera and Dreaming Facebook page this weekend, I really do think the stylists take time to really pick up on what you want. Sometimes they are on the money, sometimes they aren't, sometimes I keep everything (because I'll get 25% off) and sometimes I send everything back. Here's how this fix played out. 

41HAWTHORN | Moni Geo Print & Camisole Blouse $58.00


When I opened the box and saw this bright orange top, I thought no way. Orange on me is a no no, but when I put it on, I actually didn't hate it. I may even kind of like it. I like the fit and I could wear this to work and where ever really. It's a versatile style for our warm weather and I could wear it in the summer, spring, winter or faaaall. Still though I wish it was a different color, so back it went. 

Did I make the right choice? 

Sidenote: I'm so awkward when I ask my husband to take my photo. He gives no direction or feedback on how I look. Basically, he's a tripod that's annoyed with me. 

BANCROFT | Kaitland Spade Charm Long Necklace   $36.00  and  PIXLEY | Maritzia Scoop Neck Blouse  $48.00


I absolutely loved this necklace and it is exactly my style. So, unfortunately that means I already have some things that are too similar and couldn't justify keeping it!

I kept this top. It was just too funky, unique and comfortable not to! Hopefully, it will wash well and be one of my go-tos this summer!

JUST BLACK | Morrie Boyfriend Denim Jacket  $58.00



Despite my super awkward laughter and attempts at making this jacket summery, I just couldn't. I was SO hot taking that photo. It was so soft, pretty heavy, and fit really well. I still just couldn't justify keeping it, even though I really wanted to!

Lastly, there was the dress

KUT FROM THE KLOTH | Evy Dress   $98.00


I did try the dress on and it fit pretty well. It was comfortable and flowy, but I just didn't like how it looked on me. So, I didn't try it back on to take a photo. It's gorgeous though, well made and modest. 

So, this time, I only kept one thing, which I'm totally fine with since my budget is a little tight right now! That's the great thing about Stitch Fix though is you can set your price range and I think I also always find something to put my $20 styling fee towards. 

What do you think? Did I make the right decisions?

  2. I just signed up for Stitch Fix and I'm so excited to try it. I love seeing what you get every month. I hope my box is just as good as yours this month, although, my husband and our budget probably won't feel the same way. Ha.

    1. Ha! I'd love to see what you get! Keeping it all is RARELY an option for me. If I can get 1-2 good pieces I'm really happy.

I love the communication and connections one simple comment on a blog can bring. Lifetime friendships are formed, grown, and flourished in this little box. So, basically the pressure is on ;)
