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.

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.

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!! 🎃

Stitch Fix review August 2017

Hi there,

It’s another month and another Stitch Fix reveal and review! I love getting this box every month. It’s so much fun trying on the clothes, I really enjoy it.

I will show you what items I kept and what I returned.  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. I have been participating for over 3 years now. 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.

Listed below are the items I received.

The first item I received was Lilli Faux Suede Wedge shoes by DV8. These shoes are adorable and comfy!

Returned: They were to small for me. You can ask for a larger size from your stylist when you check out.

Next is a Franchesca embroidered knit dress by THML. This dress is really cute and versatile. You can dress it up or down.

It also comes with pockets!!

Returned: I sent it back because it was to short for me. If it was a little longer I would of kept it.

I have to say I love this brand Kut from the Kloth. Their jeans are always so comfortable. I do own a couple of pairs myself. I was sent the Simmons bootcut.

Returned: Since I do have a few pairs, I didn’t need another one at this time. If I didn’t have them, I would of kept them.

This next item is by Daniel Rainn, Quin keyhole crochet top. It is so delicate and pretty. I did wear a tank underneath since it was a little shear.

Kept: I loved this top. The keyhole is on the front and back. It has beautiful detail down the back.

The final item is the Wallace brushed cardigan by Bobeau. It was one of the softest cardigans I ever felt!!

Returned: I loved this but I’m not ready to buy for fall yet! I really should of kept it. It was so hot out, I couldn’t wait to take it off. Lol

I hope you enjoyed this reveal and review.
