Stitch Fix July Box! — July 31, 2018

Stitch Fix July Box!

Its the last day of July already and I can not believe it! We leave for Texas in a few weeks and its really setting in for me. I am little excited, worried, anxious, scared, and happy. Just a big bag of emotions. I enjoyed my month of July. I had a lot going on to keep me busy. I hope you all had a good July too!

I only kept 3 items out of this box, a dress, a shirt and a purse. AND! I did a beginner blogger fail and forgot to take a screen shot of the one shirt. It is the shirt I sent back but I still like to screen shot everything for my posts. I took a picture of the card they send with the break down of why they sent certain items and how to pair them with other clothing items. I should probably add that to my blog post as well anyway so I guess it wasn’t a total fail on my part.

I really liked all 5 items I just didn’t like the one shirt on me as well as the pants. I always try everything on. My Grandma always taught me to try everything on even if it doesn’t appeal to your eye. Normally I like it on me too after I do this. For the 3 items I kept the total was $185.28. Since I didn’t keep all 5 I didn’t get the discount. That’s really my only complaint with StitchFix is when this discount does and doesn’t apply. They were very nice and understanding the one time I wanted to exchange a pair of pants for a different size and they didn’t have a bigger size for me and they waved the fee since it wasn’t totally fair. I loved the pants they just didn’t fit right. That I really appreciated. They have some of the best customer service.

The shirt I kept was by Loveappella and it is an off the shoulder knit top size medium. It is so soft and comfortable to wear. I love off the shoulder tops even though they can be a pain some times because they push up and won’t stay down on your shoulders. I love the way they look. I actually wore this out the same night.

The second item was a purse by Sole Society. Its a blush pink color and a circle cross body bag. I also wore this the same day with the off the shoulder top. It looked super cute. I paired it all with a pair of white shorts.

The last item I kept was a maxi dress they sent. It is made by Market & Spruce. I originally was thinking of wearing this to the Beyonce concert in August but I changed my mind. I think I may wear it to my friends wedding in August. I am not sure if it is too tropical though. I have some better dresses I could wear that I have gotten from Stitch Fix.

The 2 items I did not keep were a pair of white boyfriend cut jeans by Just Black. I keep trying the boyfriend style on me and I am not sure if its because I am a curvy girl but they just never look right I feel.

The last item was a stripped top. I loved the way it looked when it was not on me. I put it on and I immediately felt like an old lady. No offense to anyone but I am not at that point in my life yet. And no need to speed up time with a shirt I would be wearing. So I decided to send back both of those items.

It is definitely easier to send back more than one item or none at all. Most of the time unfortunately if you send one thing back you spend more on the 4 items than you would have if you kept all 5. Again… that’s really the only downfall to StitchFix. I still constantly go back to them and I have tried Trunk Club, DailyLook and Wantable. Wantable is a close second but I haven’t gone back for clothes because after my second box from them I realized they do not know my size where as StitchFix is normally spot on every time and that’s why I still get the box.

Thanks for stopping by for this post! 🙂

Stitch Fix Unboxing April 2018 — April 13, 2018

Stitch Fix Unboxing April 2018

Happy April!!! and Happy Spring!

I received my April Stitch Fix box yesterday and I was sent the perfect items to kick off spring. Now if only the weather here in Buffalo NY could shape up…..

In my box was a Kaileigh Lexy Knit Jumpsuit in Olive. When I tried this on I couldn’t believe how soft, comfortable and stylish it looked. They sent me a Just USA Loula Denim Jacket in blue and is the perfect pair with this jumpsuit and the Nine Britton Lizzy Brushed Knit Dress in red. The denim jacket is the perfect add on for this spring and the jacket as well was really comfortable. It is going to go so well with so many other things in my closet. I still can’t believe how comfortable the clothes Stitch Fix sends! I can’t wait to wear the dress, denim jack and some cute wedges with it. Its the perfect out fit for getting together with friends. Very versatile. Next was the Level 99 Andriana Tulip Hem Short in light pink and those are going to be my errand running shorts on the weekends because they fit great, they are not too tight or too loose and I feel stylish in them but comfortable. The last item was the 41 Hawthorn Liano Mixed Material Top in off white. It has this beautiful floral pattern in the front and the back is all white with a section of crochet/lace like fabric down the back in a straight line. When you keep all 5 items you receive a 25% discount.

Stitch Fix started adding extras to their boxes which are cami’s, shape wear, tights, bralette’s, underwear, socks etc. They have so much to choose from. I added on a cami in the color sesame to this box. Stitch Fix also started sending style rating quizzes through their app and Facebook messenger. I take it every day on both platforms that way my stylist will have an even better idea of the style I like. My style board on pinterest is hooked up to my account so the stylist putting my box together can look through that as well to get an idea.

I recommend this box to so many of my friends all the time. I just love it and I think it is such a great concept for women and now men. Yes Stitch Fix has a clothing box for men now too.

Thanks for stopping by! See you in the next post!

Stitch Fix Unboxing! — July 26, 2017

Stitch Fix Unboxing!

If you have ever been curious about this subscription box you will definitely want to keep checking my blog. I am a monthly or every other month subscriber because I swear by this box. I plan to be posting whats in my box the week I get it.

When I first started subscribing I was so excited and let me tell you my first box was spot on. I could not believe that out of the 18 boxes I have received there have been 3 boxes where I sent some of the clothing items back. I have never sent a all the clothes back from one box.

This box I got for the month of July was wayyyyy more casual than what I ask for because the new job I started is on a construction site. I have to wear jeans, a t-shirt and steel toed boots. And when you see below they sent me exactly what I needed on top of a new cute top to wear out. The t-shirt in this box was my favorite item because of how soft and comfortable it was. I also liked the pattern. The pricing on everything was not the grand the total. The total was around the $220 range. They give you a discount if you keep all 5 items.

Scroll below to see the items and thanks for stopping by!
