So I actually learned a lot from this Stitch Fix.
1. I had scheduled my Fix for Friday, March 11. Well, March 11 came and went and I still had not received a shipping notification. I was a little worried (and very impatient) so I emailed the company. I received an email back that same day telling me the shipment should be on its way soon and that shipments were guaranteed within a week of my scheduled date. I had no idea. And that’s totally fine/understandable. I was worried this Fix was going to be really late and it’d arrive while I was on vacation. But alas, it arrived 4 days later and all was well. Now I know not to schedule fixes within a few days of an event.
2. My kids hate having their photo taken… unless I want a photo taken. Normally, it takes forever and about 285 pictures to get a decent photo of them. W will tell you flat out that he does not like photos and I have to go through great measures to get him to smile. Side note: picture day at school is coming up and I cannot wait for W’s grumpy face photo. Haha. Anyway, I asked A to take photos of me in the clothes and the boys both had to be in the photos. Hence the following photos of me in awkward poses as I try to balance one kiddo or lean over to talk to the other. Any other time of the day, it’s impossible to convince them to be in a photo with me.
3. 18 minutes is not enough time to try on and decide on clothes. I was trying out a new recipe and had exactly 18 minutes until it was done baking so I asked A if he thought that was enough time to check out my Stitch Fix items. He said yes and away I went. And 18 minutes later I was still trying/deciding on what to keep, but that’s partly related to number 4…
4. W gets almost as excited about Stitch Fix as I do! He recognized the box, wanted to see the clothes, and even escorted me up and down the stairs while I showed A my items. He gave me his thoughts (liked the first outfit and did not like the second). He also wanted to take all the tags off of everything. So.darn.cute.
I was super excited about this Fix because it had been over 2 months since I received one. I was hoping for springy items and mentioned to my stylist that I was really into florals lately. And this Fix did not disappoint. Without further ado…
I first tried on the Lucio Henly Blouse. I thought the blouse was so pretty and felt so springy. The pink in the flowers was very bright, but I didn't think it was too much. I could easily pair this was a soft gray cardigan to balance the bright floral if needed. KEPT.
Next up the Morrie Boyfriend Denim Jacket and Alessandro Silk V-neck Blouse. I asked for a denim jacket since I gave away my previous one. Still kicking myself - what was I thinking? Anyway, I asked for one and received one. The wash is a bit lighter than I anticipated, but I still liked it. I mainly wear denim jackets over dresses, but thought it looked cute with this blouse. Speaking of the blouse, it was pricey, but gorgeous. The picture is a bit deceiving - I think I was leaning over and the blouse looks a little longer than it actually is. Nonetheless, it was beautiful and I love that it can be dressed down with jeans or a denim jacket or dressed up with black pants and heels. Had I not purchased the other items, this would have been too pricey to keep, but because I kept everything, I received a 25% discount. KEPT and KEPT.
|Yes, if you were wondering, W is wearing my shoes. I told you, he is REALLY into Stitch Fix. ;)|
And finally, the Elmar Embroidered Cutout Blouse and Denise Bootcut Jeans. I had received boot cut jeans in my previous fix, but the wash was too light for my taste. I LOVED this pair. Dark wash and they fit well. They're just a tad long for me, but I think they'll work well with heels and maybe they'll even shrink a bit in the wash. And this blouse. The cobalt color was seriously amazing. The sleeves had cutouts giving it a little something extra. KEPT and KEPT.
|Even Addie dog is photo bombing me now. And S is flashing a peace sign... or maybe he's telling me to keep both items.|
