Stitch Fix review June 2018

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

Hi there,

I can’t believe summer is almost here and the kids are almost done with school! Where did half of this year go already?! Father’s Day is also upon us, think about giving the Dads in you life the gift of Stitch Fix.  Most men hate to go shopping, this would be a great idea for them! I added the links for the gift cards at the end of this review.

Also, there is an amazing summer give away Stitch Fix is offering this month. It’s a dream vacation and a free 10 item fix!! All you have to do is sign up for a fix the month of June. There are giving it to 10 winners!! Here is the link to the contest: Summer giveaway . Good luck!

I’m on my #53 fix. Wow, I have been using Stitch Fix over 4 years! My friend actually told me about them years ago and I have been hooked ever since. When my kids were small, it was hard for me to get out to go shopping. Stitch Fix was exactly what I needed to freshen up my wardrobe. I have accumulated some great pieces over the years. I incorporate them so many different ways into my outfits.

I want to let you know what  Stitch Fix is, if you didn’t know already. Stitch Fix 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. She even saw me in my previous posts in a dress I kept and made comments about it. Talk about customizing to each individual.

Listed below is the style card I received for this fix. Now let’s get into what I received.

Skies are blue – Feliciano mixed material keyhole knit top $54

I must say this top is comfy and stylish. I really like how they mixed the two styles of print together. This top could be worn all year with a cardigan or without, it is versatile. You could pair this top with shorts, jeans or even a skirt. Even though it is adorable, sadly I had to send it back. It was a little snug around the top. Good news is that if I want a larger size, I can request it when I check out my order after the three days.

Below you can see the top in better detail. Oops and some wrinkles!

Loveappella – Gwen faux wrap knit maxi skirt $48

This wrap maxi skirt has a pretty print. My stylist Anna sent me something different this time. I don’t usually wear maxi skirts but I thought this was adorable. It has a little boho look to it. I love the fact that Stitch Fix gets me to try things outside of my norm. I paired this skirt with my orange top to pull out the color in the skirt. I did send it back only because I’m not sure how often I would wear it.

Cloth & Stone – Alanis button front top $88

Market & Spruce – Lanie short $54

This next outfit I really liked. I paired these two items together. I needed new shorts so these were perfect. They are made with Lycra and are so comfortable. I just loved the color too! I really could wear a lot of different tops with these shorts. This top is cute but I’m not one for pockets on shirts. I kept the shorts and returned the top.

Loveappella – Earnest knit swing tank $44

The last piece I received is this floral swing tank. The material is very soft and does not cling at all. You could pair this with jeans, skirt but I decided to go with white shorts. I was undecided about this one. Well, I have 3 days to think about it!

My stylist Anna did a great job matching items to my style. 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.

Did you hear about the summer giveaway that Stitch Fix is offering?

Stitch Fix review May 2018

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

Hi there,

It’s May and Mother’s Day is upon us. Happy Mother’s Day to you! We also have Memorial Day at the end of the month too. That means summer is coming soon!

This month I did put in a request from my stylist Anna for a romper and spring clothing items, well she did deliver. You shall request and you shall receive!

I received my #52 Stitch Fix box this month. I’ll show you each item and let you know what I thought of them. I’ll also let you know what I decided to keep.

I want to let you know what Stitch Fix is, if you didn’t know already. Stitch Fix 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.

She even saw me in my previous posts in a top I kept and made comments about it. Talk about customizing to each individual.

Listed below is the style card I received for this fix. Now let’s get into what I received.

41 Hawthorn – Cristen shirt dress $78

When I first saw this dress I wasn’t sure what to think. I put it on and loved it! It’s something I probably wouldn’t of brought in the store. That’s the beauty of Stitch Fix. You get to try clothing you possibly wouldn’t try at the store. I paired this pretty floral dress with wedges. I decided to keep it and I’m wearing it to a Communion this weekend. It’s a perfect spring dress.

Soaked in luxury- Magalie v-neck pocket knit tee $48

This next item is this v-neck tee. I know why it’s called soaked in luxury, the material is so soft! I wore this top in a casual way with my shorts and sandals. You could also wear it with jeans. I do love the color but honestly I’m not crazy about the pocket. It is a cute top. I decided to send it back. If it came without a pocket, I would of kept it!

Chaser- Darce Raglan knit pullover $58

My third item is this cute graphic sweatshirt. It says Sunday fun day, isn’t that the truth! It’s nice to be off work and home with the family. It’s really soft and comfy. I paired it with a pair of my distressed jeans and kicks. I decided not to keep it because I want more lightweight clothes for spring. It was a tough decision though.

RD Style- Bryanna knit romper $68

I asked my stylist for a romper in this fix. I paired it with a jean jacket and wedges. It has a drawstring waist. I decided not to keep it because I would of preferred a romper with sleeves. I didn’t specify that in my request, it’s my bad! Maybe my next fix, I’ll have one with sleeves.

Collective Concepts- Maire wrap front blouse $54

My last item is this floral wrap blouse. It’s really adorable for spring or summer. I paired this top with my white jeans and my new favorite blush flats. I loved the print but the material wasn’t that soft. I sadly decided to send it back.

My stylist Anna did a great job matching items to my style. I kept 1/5 items.

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.

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

White jeans are a wardrobe staple

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

Hi there,

I think one of the most important staples to a wardrobe is white jeans. Remember back in the day when everyone use to say you can’t wear white after Labor Day, well not no more! That’s old school! You can wear white whenever you want. Of course it is more popular in spring and summer.

I myself love white jeans or capris. You can dress them up or down. I can dress the jeans up to wear them to work with a cute blouse or dress them down with slip on sneakers and a tee shirt.

White jeans are so versatile. I’m going to show you some outfits with the jeans and jean capris. I’ll also include links if your interested in purchasing them.

This first look is great for a night out or to wear to work. I dressed it up with my pearl flats and a cute clutch. I linked a similar top. This brand of jeans are my favorite. They are not see through and are comfy.

Top link: Top  similar

Jeans link: White jeans

Flats link: pearl flats

This next outfit is with white jean capris. These are great for a more casual look but you could dress it up with wedges or heels. I like wearing these when it’s to hot to wear jeans but not hot enough for shorts.

Top link: Top – only available in plus size now

Jeans link: White jeans  similar pair

Sneakers link: Sneakers similar pair

This next look I dressed up with a pair of wedges. You could also dress it down with sneakers. I have both ways posted to give you ideas on how to style this look.

Top link: Pink top

Jeans link: White jeans

Sneakers link: Sneakers  similar pair

Wedges link: Wedges  similar pair

I hope you can get yourself some white jeans or capris or already have them in your closet. It’s a great alternative to regular blue jeans and they make an outfit pop with color!

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.

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.

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.

 

img_1458-2
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:

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!

Wild for plaid and Zoo Boo

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

Hi there,

I don’t know about you but I just love plaid prints and vests. It goes great in keeping with the fall style. I paired this outfit with a solid purple vest and kept it casual with jeans and boots.

I was so excited today that I won a bouquet of flowers from my local florist. Aren’t they fall festive!!

We had a day packed with everything Halloween themed. In the morning, I took the kids to our local park for a Halloween parade.

Then at night we went to Van Saun Park in Paramus, NJ for Zoo Boo. They sell out quickly so you have to get tickets in advance. They decorate the zoo for Halloween and have a haunted train ride. Below are some pictures of Zoo Boo. This is the entrance.

Here is the haunted train ride. They make different scenes of horror movies and they come to life!

Graveyard scene. Luckily no one jumped out at us here!

This is the bloody Dr. office scene. 😳 So gruesome!!

Creepy doll scene!!

Next stop the Bates motel! You check in but you don’t check out!!!

Shower scene from Pyscho!! 🔪🚿 The girl ran out screaming!!!

This the General Store in the zoo.

Witch scene in the zoo.

It was a fun night! The kids had a blast and so did we. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.

Here is another way I styled this outfit with distressed jeans and pearl boots! I was a comfy and casual outfit for a fun-filled day.

I listed the links to this outfit below…

Vest: Purple vest

Plaid button down shirt:Plaid shirt

Jeans: Jeans

Boots:Boots

Purse: Pursethis one is similar

Hope you all have a safe and Happy Halloween!! 🎃
