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.
