Stitch Fix review January 2018

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links. If you use my affiliate link, I may receive a small commission.

Hi there,

Let me start off with saying Happy New Year!! I hope you have a happy and healthy New Year. Mine started great because I spent it with friends and family. Also to my surprise my Stitch Fix box #48 came a few days early. What a treat for me! I was so happy when I saw this box on my steps. I’m like a kid at Christmas time.

I have great news for this month, Stitch Fix is waiving their styling fee of $20. I have the special link attached for you here: Waived fee.

For those who do not know what Stitch Fix is, it is a monthly subscription mail order for clothes, shoes, jewelry and accessories. You get 5 items in each box. You set up your personal profile and customize it to your liking. It’s like Christmas in a box every month!! I can’t wait for that brown box to arrive with the Stitch Fix tape on it. I get an email that it shipped out and I track it when it should arrive. Usually in 3 days or less.

Once it arrives, I open the box and get a price sheet with the description of each item. I also get a card which shows each item I received, how to wear it and a personal note from my stylist.

Here is my recent styling card. My stylist Anna chose great pieces for me. I love the color palette she picked.

Now that you have an idea of what Stitch Fix is, let’s get into what I received.

Lemon Tart – Kaine velvet lace up pullover $68

This pullover is adorable. I really like the detail of the velvet lace criss-cross in the front. It gives it a delicate touch. I paired it with a pair of Kut From The Kloth jeans I received a while back. This top could be worn dressed up or down.

Tahari- Charles suede bootie $109

First of all I just love the olive-green color of these booties. It’s very different from all the other booties you see out there. It has a two-inch heel so it’s not to high and it’s comfy to wear. The back has an adorable bow detail.

Driftwood- Britt embroidered cuff scissor cut hem straight leg jean $98

RD Style- Kylin chenille cardigan $68.

I paired the jeans, cardigan and boots together for this picture. This soft and cozy pink chenille cardigan is amazing! I can’t tell you how many times I wore it already and it felt so comfortable.

The Driftwood jeans are really stretchy and soft. The embroidered cuff has a pretty floral detail. You really have so many options when pairing these jeans with a top.

Olive & Oak- Orchid velour hooded pullover $58

This velour pullover is so soft and it comes with a hood. This top can be worn with a pair with leggings, jeans or dress pants. I went for a casual look with my Kut From The Kloth jeans.

My stylist this month Anna, did a great job pairing these items to my style. I received pretty tops, jeans and booties. I decided to keep 1/5 items. I have to watch my budget this month especially after the holidays! I wish I could of kept it all.

If you decide not to keep all the items, you can return them for free with the enclosed envelope that is prepaid. It’s so easy to do or if you decide to keep all the items, you will receive 25% off your total.

Just to remind you, Stitch Fix is waiving their fee of $20 this month with my special link:  Waived fee. Why not try it, you won’t regret it and it’s risk free!

If you’re looking to give a gift that they would love, Stitch Fix offers gift cards. They are actual cards or it can be emailed to that special someone. Here is the link: Stitch Fix gift card.

Ruffles and more

Hi there,

Well here in New Jersey we are in the middle of a bomb cyclone! I never heard of this term something new to me! It is a snow storm with a lot of wind. So needless to say I’m staying warm inside and taking the pictures in here. I hope where ever you live it is warmer than here.

I’m loving ruffle tops these days. The ruffles could be on the shoulder, arm, across the front or back of the top. It gives the sweater or top a feminine detail.

I paired this sweater with a black pair of leggings and black riding boots since it’s so cold out! You could also pair this with jeans for a more casual look.  The purse I’m wearing is a Christmas present from Santa!

Here is a closer look. This bracelet I have on is a wrap bracelet that attaches by magnet. It’s very easy to get on by myself.

If you are interested in this look, here are the link below for these items.

Shop this look…

Ruffle sweater    Petite size

Ruffle sweater Plus size

 Black leggings these are tummy control! 

Riding boots

Purse  – It’s not the exact one but I found a similar one

Bracelet

Stay warm and thanks for stopping by.

New year, new journeys

Hi there,

First off, I would like to thank you for being part of this blogging journey with me. I started blogging at the end of May of 2017. The reason I started blogging because I was inspired by the following women @LivinginYellow (Erin) and @JolynneShane that I follow on Pinterest. I thought to myself that it looks like fun and really wanted to try it. I thought about trying it a year before I started. Then one day I just said I’m going to do it. Life is to short not to try it!

I had no idea what I was doing and where to start. I did a LOT of reading on how to start a blog. Next I chose my niche of fashion/style and I was on my way. Then I created this blog on WordPress, next was social media… Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook! Connecting with other bloggers is great for support and guidance.

I’m so happy and honored to have partnered with Stitch Fix, Jane, Rose gal and Shop Style Collective. This past year has been a learning curve for me. I’m still trying to figure out some days what works and doesn’t.

What I am looking forward to this year is growing more, collaborating with more companies and people. I hope you enjoy the fashion styles I share with you.

Below are some of my favorite styles from 2017 on Instagram. Happy New Year to you and your family!

Stitch Fix review December 2017

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links. If you use my affiliate link, I may receive a small commission.

Hi there,

I can’t believe the holidays are almost upon us. This year flew by. This is my last box for this year, it’s my 47th box! I’m totally hooked, can’t you tell!

For those who do not know what Stitch Fix is, it is a monthly subscription mail order for clothes, shoes, jewelry and accessories. You get 5 items in each box. You set up your personal profile and customize it to your liking. It’s like Christmas in a box every month!! I can’t wait for that brown box to arrive with the Stitch Fix tape on it. I get an email that it shipped out and I track it when it should arrive. Usually in 3 days or less.

Once it arrives, I open the box and get a price sheet with the description of each item. I also get a card which shows each item I received, how to wear it and a personal note from my stylist.

Here is an example of the styling card.

Let’s get into what I received and how I styled it.

The first item is by Samantha Dru, it’s the Cheliz velvet knit sweatshirt. This has to be the softest sweatshirt I ever owned. It’s such a pretty shade of grey. You can’t go wrong with this sweatshirt. I wore it out and about doing errands and it kept me so warm. Look at the picture, I spy a little eye!! I just noticed my daughters eye in the picture on the left side!! 😂

Kept: how could I not keep this amazing sweatshirt!! Love, love, love it!

img_2047-1img_2044

The second item I received was by Teeberry & Weave, it’s the Juliah plaid back pullover. It’s comfortable and you can pair it with jeans, dress pants or even a skirt. Here is the front which is solid black and the back which has the print. Oh and you can see our laser lights through my curtain for Christmas!

Returned: Although it is a cute top, I had a similar one. If I didn’t have one, I would have kept it.

The third item I received is by TrulyPoppy, it’s the Pam mesh detail lace dress. This dress is really adorable but it didn’t fit. You can request a bigger size, if this ever happens to you! Stitch Fix will see if they have it and send it to you. I did not take a picture in it. I liked the lace detail and mesh netting on the top. It’s a great dress for a holiday party or to wear at work. Throw a cardigan over it if you get chilly! It could be worn in the spring and summer too. This is an all season dress.

Returned: It didn’t fit! 

 

img_2042

The fourth item is by B Collection by Bobeau, it’s the Jaime open lapel cardigan. I really liked this cardigan. The Olive green color is very pretty. It’s a soft and cozy cardigan. I paired it with jeans but you could wear it with dressy pants too.

Returned: I have a similar one.

img_2046-1

The last item I received was by Madison & Lola, it’s the Devyn faux fur-lined faux suede vest. So this was a really tough decision. This vest is soft, lightweight and my favorite color blue! I have to watch my budget this month especially with the holidays around the corner. So sadly I returned it. 😥

Returned: I may request this in a future box.

 

img_2045 Overall it was a great fix. I kept 1/5. If you decide not to keep all the items, you can return them for free with the enclosed envelope that is prepaid. It’s so easy to do or you can keep all items and receive 25% off your total.

The holidays are coming why not give a gift card to a loved one. They can buy a cute piece or try it out for the first time. Here is the link: Stitch Fix gift card link Great news starting last month for a short period of time, Stitch Fix is waiving the styling fee of $20. If you were on the fence about trying it, now is your chance risk free!! Get it while it lasts!  Click on my link to receive the waived fee. Stitch Fix waived styling fee I hope you enjoyed this review. Give Stitch Fix a try, you won’t be disappointed!

Stitch Fix review November 2017

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links. If you use my affiliate link, I may receive a small commission.

Hi there,

So here I am at box #46!! Yes, I’m still excited every time I get a box. You never know what you’re going to get!! I usually don’t request anything particular, I liked to be surprised, unless I want a certain item.

For those who do not know what Stitch Fix is, it is a monthly subscription mail order for clothes, shoes, jewelry and accessories. You get 5 items in each box. It’s like Christmas in a box every month!! I can’t wait for that brown box to arrive with the Stitch Fix tape on it. I get an email that it shipped out and I track it when it should arrive. Usually in 3 days or less.

I open the box and get a price sheet with the description of each item. I also get a card which shows each item I received, how to wear it and a personal note from my stylist.

Here is an example of the styling card.

Now let’s get into what I received and how I styled it.

First item is Olive & Oak Maryanne striped pullover sweater. This sweater is really soft and cozy. I also loved how it fit.

The second item is Kut from the Kloth – Dayna distressed skinny jeans which are comfy too. I say it all the time that Kut from the Kloth are my favorite brand of jeans. They are stretchy and comfortable. I also wore my Steve Madden sneakers. I wore this when I was out and about doing errands.

Kept: the Olive & Oak sweater! Loved it!!

Returned: the Kut from the Kloth jeans. I have a similar pair!

 

Third item I received is the Le lis Alante woven back knit top. This is such a pretty detailed top in the back. I love the floral pattern. I paired it with the skinny jeans I received. You could dress this top up with dress pants or a skirt and boots!

The fourth item I received was Seavees Monterey canvas lace up sneakers. They matched the top perfectly!

Returned: both the top and sneakers. I wasn’t crazy about the sneakers and I do have a similar top! It is cute though, I almost kept it!!

The last item I received was Truly Poppy’s Arachna lace detail blouse. This top was a pretty shade of purple and had lace detail in the back. I didn’t take a picture in this one because it wasn’t flattering on me. 😞

Returned: it was tight and to see through for me. You could wear a cami underneath and it would be fine.

All in all it was a great fix. I kept 1/5. I was happy with my choice.

If you decide not to keep all the items, you can return them for free with the enclosed envelope that is prepaid. It’s so easy to do.

The holidays are coming why not give a gift card to a loved one. They can buy a cute piece or try it out for the first time. The link is below.

Hi there,

I wanted to share my exciting news that last month I became a Stitch Fix influencer!! What that means is that I will be promoting Stitch Fix. I do love Stitch Fix already and have been using for almost 4, yes 4 years!!

Basically what Stitch Fix is an online styling service personalized to your style and budget. You get 5 total items of clothes, shoes and accessories. You can keep all items and get 25% off your total or keep a few items and get $20 (your styling fee) off your total. Anything you don’t keep you can return in the prepaid envelope. You get 3 days from when you receive your items to decide to keep them or return them. I usually always keep at least one item.

They have recently expanded the sizes and are now carry men’s clothing and maternity as well!!

Every month I will show you what items that I have received in the box, how I wear them and what I decided to keep or send back. It is a great concept and service.

Here are a few examples of clothing I have received in the past. I have listed the style card and a picture of myself wearing the item. I love how the style card shows you different options on how to wear the clothing.

I hope you enjoy my posts and stick around for more to come!! Here is my referral link:  Stitch Fix link to give it a try! Please let me know what you think about it.

Pearl flats

Hi there,

I wanted to share with you one of my favorite pairs of shoes I got so far this season. We all know pearls are the rage but these shoes have pearls and a little bit of bling!

They really are adorable on! I do have wider feet so I did stretch them out a bit in the front.  Below I wore them with skinny jeans but you can dress them up as well.

This is how I wore them with my black Michael Kors shirt and Kut from the Kloth skinny jeans below.

Below I am wearing them with black pants from Stitch Fix for a dressier look! They really are versatile. I do get a lot of compliments on them.

Here is the link for these shoes:Pearl flats

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Let me know what you think!
