the prodigal returns OR the stitch fix is here!

 

I’m not even going to bother to apologize for my vast absence. Nor am I going to pretend that I’ll be able to start blogging regularly again. Between juggling my active family, teaching full time, and working as a travel planner part-time, I have exactly zero free time.

But…

This seemed blog worthy: My first Stitch Fix box. For those who don’t know, Stitch Fix is an online personal styling service. You register and complete a style profile, and then a personal stylist shops for you and sends clothing/accessories that are tailored to your style. You can specify if you want business, casual, or dressy pieces, and they’ll send you 5 items. You can choose to keep all 5 or zero or something in between. If you don’t keep any items, you pay a $20 styling fee, but it’s applied towards your order when you keep something. {However, you get a 25% discount if you keep all 5 items.} If you’d like to check it out, please click this link {full disclosure: I get “credits” for anyone who orders a Fix.} https://www.stitchfix.com/referral/3266055. You can even sign up to have a monthly delivery!

So, after weeks of waiting, my box finally arrived. Wanna see what they sent?  Of course you do.

Hurry up and open it already!

I actually squealed when I opened it. This week, I had been wishing for red pants, and lo and behold, there they were. AND, navy is one of my most frequently worn colors, so the two pieces in the box also had me excited. AND my obsession with the chevron is legendary, so that top jumped right out at me as well. This is gonna be fun…

The red pants are by Margaret M and cost $98.00 They are skinny and would work with ballet flats for fall/spring or boots for winter weather. My husband thought they were a bit too big, but I really like the color and do not believe the next size down would fit. Plus, you can’t exchange for a smaller size; it’s all or nothing.

VERDICT: keep

The black and white chevron blouse is lightweight and works for layering or possibly on its own in warmer weather. I like the pleat detail on the back, and love chevrons, so this was a no-brainer. It’s by Fiancee and costs $38.00.

VERDICT: keep

This shirt from Tart ($58.00) is navy and cream striped with a sequined design on each shoulder. While I’m not in love with the design, I don’t hate it either. Plus, the shirt is lightweight and can easily be layered under a cardi, so the sequins become a non-issue. I’ve been wanting a navy & cream striped shirt for a while, and when one arrives on my doorstep, I don’t argue.

VERDICT: keep

This longsleeved navy blue cardigan by 41Hawthorn is just my style. Simple. Versatile. A closet staple. And for $48, I’m in.

VERDICT: keep

The last item was a very long know necklace by Rikka. ($32.00). I’m not crazy about it and my fantastic husband just got me something similar, but it’s a much better deal to keep it since I’m keeping the other 4 items. I would probably have been more excited had I not just gotten something like it, but I think that for future Fixes, I may specify no jewelry.

The total cost for all 5 items was $274.00. Less the $20 styling fee credit and the 25% discount, I got all 5 items for $190.50.

All in all, I LOVED my Fix and have to apply serious personal restraint not to sign up for another one straight away. You should DEFINITELY scope it out. Now. Get to it!
