Good evening, Bits and Bobbers! Kerri here…
The best day of the month came last week, when my third Stitch Fix box arrived in the mail. EEEEEK!!
Girls, I am OBSESSED with Stitch Fix. It is literally the best thing since the invention of the TPT (Don't we all LOVE TPT??) You may have read all about my mom's SUPER successful first Stitch Fix box last week. She is HOOKED too! If you aren't familiar with Stitch Fix, I'll explain it at the end of this post.
Well, let's get this party started, shall we?? Here is the beloved teal and tan box after it arrived. The anticipation before opening it is probably my favorite part of all!
Well, actually... opening the box and seeing all of the beautiful colors is my true favorite part of all. Aren't this month's choices GORGEOUS??
This is the style card that they included with my fix. I LOVE these and I save them all!! I just love how they pair each item with different things to show you how you can look fabulous!
Next, I'll show you each piece and give you my first impressions. Then, you can see how I looked in each piece (AWKWARDNESS commencing soon!!)
First up-the Market and Spice Honolulu Embroidery Detail Tab-Sleeve Blouse. When I first saw this, I thought it was a bit plain, but I did love the red and blue embroidery detail. I was also worried it would be too see through when I put it on, but I did like the rolled up sleeves and button detail.
First impression-cute... but not sure about this one??
Next up…the Jill Jersey Maxi Skirt in bright blue. When I first took this out I LOVED the color and it was super soft, but I felt it was a bit plain. I am a pattern girl, and this was just so much blue. I kept in mind though, that the solid color would go well with a patterned shirt, so I was hopeful about this one.
My third piece was the Renee C Renya Racerback Striped Maxi Dress. I had specifically asked for another maxi dress after my last one was such a HUGE WIN, and I was super excited about the teal color (my favorite!!) so this one made me happy right away. HOWEVER, I didn't know if the horizontal stripes would make me look wide through my mid section (the bane of my existence-ugh!) and racerback is not my favorite, so we would have to see about this one!
My fourth piece was the Tucker Mixed Paisley Print Split Back Tank. This one literally took my breath away the minute I saw it. It was SCREAMING me. The colors, the print, the style. OH HAPPY DAY! The only thing I was a little worried about the the racerback style because I always feel self-conscious about my bra straps showing, so maybe I would have to wear a tank underneath it??
Last up…the 41 Hawthorne Abrianna Lightweight Knit Cardigan in coral. I LOVE this color!!! And this cardigan was SUPER lightweight, which is PERFECT for California at this time of year. I was excited about this one!
Okay, awkwardness commencing!!
My teenage daughter took all of these pictures of me (begrudgingly, of course. She IS a teenager!) while my next door neighbor was working in his garage. Needless to say, it was KIND of embarrassing! :)
|When I put this blouse on, I FELL IN LOVE! It was NOT see through at all, and it looked fabulous with jeans. Plus, my bright blue Kendra Scott set matched it perfectly! KEEPER!|
|It also looked fabulous with the skirt they sent me! I love love love how Stitch Fix sends you pieces that can be paired with each other! It's like an instant outfit!!|
|Well Praise Jesus! I love this TOP! I found out that I WILL need to wear a tank under it to hide my bra straps and also it was a teensy bit short about my hip area, but a tank will lengthen it. LOVE IT!|
|This print is just DELICIOUS!!|
|I also paired it was the cardigan they sent me from my first Fix and it was perfect!|
|It also works perfectly with the blue maxi skirt!! Another fabulous outfit for school!|
|This maxi dress was SOOOO soft and comfy! The stripes didn't bother me too much, and for school I will have to wear it with a cardigan to cover my bra straps, but that's okay because I absolutely LOVE it!|
|TADA!! It worked perfectly with the coral cardigan and I like how the cardigan breaks up all those stripes! WINNER!|
Here is how Stitch Fix works:
1. Create a Style profile on the Stitch Fix Website
2. Have 5 handpicked items that fit your style profile delivered to your house.
3. Keep what you like and check out online. Send back the rest in a pre-paid envelope.
4. Look fabulous at work or while you're out playing!!
It takes about 10 minutes to fill out your style profile online, and it is super fun and easy, because you get to choose different outfits that best represent you. I love this part! You can also go back in and tweak your profile, which I have done several times. Just for fun!
This really is the easiest service in the world. There is no pressure to keep anything. If you don't like anything, they charge you a $20 styling fee, but if you keep at least one item, the $20 fee goes toward the cost of that item, and shipping is FREE both ways. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!!
You can also schedule your fixes to come just once, monthly, or every 2-3 weeks. I started out with just once, and then after it came and I realized how RAD it is, I decided to switch to monthly. It is so much fun to look forward to each month!!
If you sign up using my referral link (I'm so grateful when people use my link!! Thank you so much!), I get a small referral fee which goes toward the purchases of my own Fixes, and I can keep blogging about it and showing you all my awkward pictures! :)
Come on, ladies! Try it out, You know you wanna!! :)
XOXO Kerri B
