Stitch Fix #4 and your chance to win a $20 gift card!!!

Happy Sunday, Peeps! Kerri here...
Soooo, last Monday the best day of the month arrived. The day when I received my 4th Stitch Fix box! You might have read about my previous Stitch Fix box here, and my last one was sooooo amazing, I had high hopes for this one. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint. If you don't know what Stitch Fix is, I'll explain it at the end of this post, where you'll also be able to enter to win a $20 Stitch Fix gift card!! Whoot whoot!!

Let's get this party started, shall we???
Here is the beloved teal and brown box sitting on my bed, just waiting to be opened.



Once I opened it, I first looked at the handy Styling card that is included with every box. I LOVE these and I keep them all. They are perforated, so you could (hypothetically) keep them all as separate cards in a file box to refer to. (Not that I am such a dork to do such a thing. Heavens no.)

Here is what they sent me. I always ask for 5 clothing pieces, although you can ask them to send you an accessory, such as jewelry or a scarf, as well. I never do this because I have GOBS of jewelry (it's embarrassing, really) and I'm not really a scarf girl. 
Looks delicious already!!!
Here are the pile of clothes once I took it out of the box. Aren't the colors GORGEOUS??? I ALWAYS ask for the same colors. I can't help it. Coral, teal and blue are my favorites.
Soooo pretty. Like model. Cheerleader. Something pretty.
Next, I'll break down each piece and tell you how much each one costs, plus my first impression when I hung it up, and then you can see what I looked like in each piece. 

DISCLAIMER....I took these pictures at 7 a.m. in the morning before I went to work each day because it was 10000 degrees last week and by the time I got home, I was a HOT, SWEATY, STINKY mess. I feel like there are giant bags under my eyes and I am half awake. UGH. Don't ever get old, peeps. It sucks.  Even my 6th grade daughter was like, "You look tired, mom!" 

Thanks.alot.child.


With that being said, and with the promise that you will ignore my puffy, sleepy face, let's continue shall we??? :)

First up...the Clarita Leopard Print Flutter Sleeve Blouse by COLLECTIVE CONCEPTS. ($38)

I loved the print and the color was spot on, as was the price, but I was a little put off by the flutter sleeves. I am self conscious of my arms (even though I do yoga and try my darndest to get them all toned up!!) and I felt like the flutter sleeves might accentuate my arms in a weird way. Plus, I felt like I might fly away. 


Ok, ok, not too bad. The fluttery sleeves are a little LARGE, but overall, it fit great, I felt comfy in it, and I just LOVE the print. So I kept it! :)


Isn't this print too cute???
Item #2-The Joshua Colored Ankle Jean by Pink Martini in Teal ($44)
These jeans were ADORABLE on the hanger. Thin material, great color and a super good price.
And then I put them on. UGH. Not even close to fitting me right. Just so wrong in all the wrong places, you know what I mean?? I couldn't even stomach taking a picture in them. Too gross.

Sorry, Stitch Fix.  These.were.hideous.

Item #3-the Milan Lace Print Back Pleat Top by 41 Hawthorn ($58).
When I first saw this top, I liked the material and the navy and white color, but the lace was just not me. I kept thinking, "Too grandma! When do I ever wear ANYTHING lace??" Plus, it was little spendy. Not looking good girls.

And then....I tried it on. And fell in love. And felt completely cute it it. And decided that maybe I'm turning into a grandma??? Whatevers. Totally keeping it!!!!

This is the beauty of Stitch Fix. I NEVER EVER would have even entertained trying this on in a store, and it turn out it is my favorite piece of all. I got about a thousand compliments on this when I wore it to school! Seriously...Stitch Fix nailed it!
I love it in sooo many ways!!!


Lovely. just lovely.

Item #4-the Taya Flutter Sleeve Silk Blouse by Daniel Rainn ($74)

This was just beautiful. The color was perfect, the cut was great, except...again with the flutter sleeves??? And silk, WAYYYY too high maintenance for this girl. I haven't walked into a dry cleaner since forever. In fact, I don't even know where the nearest dry cleaner is. Plus, it was SUPER expensive! DARN DARN DARN.  Not keeping.

And, it was so pretty on. Poo and double poo.
Item #5-the Florence Colorblocked Dress by 41 Hawthorn ($68)
This dress was fabulous! I had asked for a shorter dress to wear to school and Stitch Fix DID NOT disappoint. It was so so cute and comfy and the colors were great!!


And absolutely fabulous on!!! Kept it!!!

So, there you have it! Stitch Fix #4 was the BOMB, as usual. I kept 3 of the 5 items this time, wore all 3 to school last week, and got GOBS of compliments from all of my teacher friends! I'm telling you, I felt VERY fancy!
After I checked out, I made sure to leave SUPER detailed notes and what worked and didn't work for me. For instance, I told them NO MORE SILK EVER or flutter sleeves for that matter, and to please reference my Stitch Fix Pinterest Board, which I keep adding too every time I see something cute that is my style!

So what is Stitch Fix??

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 w
ork 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! :)

I'm going to be getting my next fix this week. I'm hoping it's a good one. I LOVE the navy lace top and the teal top. The dress is really cute as well. I got a similar dress a few weeks ago with coral instead of the teal. I agree with you on the flutter sleeve top. I think it would drive me crazy.

"Model. Cheerleader. Something pretty." LOL I keep laughing at that. I might have to work it into a conversation tomorrow. :) As soon as I can bite the bullet & not feel bad about spending money (I have a one year old who requires extra diapers, wipes and well, food...) I'm totally going to do it!

I had the fluttery sleeve shirt in my box last month as well. I was unsure of the sleeves, but kept it and love it! Thanks for sharing your fix.

I have to be completely honest....once I initially saw the items, I thought. I don't like that. BUT, once I saw the pics of you modelling everything, I thought, WOW! She really makes the clothes LOOK GREAT! LOL! Seriously, you look awesome in all of it!
