Stitch Fix is back, BABY!!! #9 (plus a little bit of 7 and 8 thrown in!)

Good Evening, Bits and Bobbers!! Kerri here...

It has been a while since I blogged about Stitch Fix, due to Thanksgiving in November and then there was all of the December madness, but I am back and excited to share with you my most recent fix, including some winners from my November and December fixes as well. Wondering what in the heck Stitch Fix is?? I''l explain it all at the end of this post!

Ready to see all of my Stitch Fix goodness?? Here we go...

So this yummy little box arrived last week and I couldn't wait to rip it open and see what my lovely stylist Jessica had picked out for me.

Here is a little peek at my Style card this month. So far, it looks fabulous!!

 And, here is my pretty pile of clothes all ready for me to try on. Don't they look good enough to try on?? ;)

I never ask for jewelry in my Fixes because, well, I have GOBS of jewelry. It's embarrassing, really. Just ask my husband!

But, I figured, what the hey! Let's see what she sends me. She did not disappoint, let me tell you! I pinned a couple of layered gold necklaces on my Stitch Fix board and I was so excited to see one show up in my box!
This is the BAY TO BAUBLES Jody Stone Charm Layered Necklace, and it was beautiful on. You'll see what I mean in a minute.

Isn't it great?? This necklace was JUST what I was looking for, and I have requested some matchy earrings in my next fix. Fingers crossed Jessica will find some for me. I'm in love with this!

I also asked for a sweater this time, since it is FINALLY chilly here in So. Cal.

This looked cute on the hanger, but HOLY HIDEOUSNESS!!! It was disgusting on me. I looked utterly ridiculous and frumpy. I couldn't even take a picture in it. UGH...this one was returned for sure!

Be still my beating heart!!! It was just fabulous on the hanger and even more fabulous on. So soft and cozy, and cute to boot!! I TOTALLY kept this bad boy and I even wore it to school on Monday! :)

See what I mean?? Isn't it too adorable?? Please ignore the WRINKLED SHIRT!! Geez, what a mess I am, right?? Can you tell I'll do anything other than iron, including looking like a hot mess on camera?? HEEHEE!!

My next piece was just as amazing. This is the EDMOND CHEVRON PRINT HENLEY SHIRT by PIXLEY. I loved everything about it the minute I saw it! The CHEVRON print (HELLO??? I love Chevron!), the 3/4 sleeves, the V-neck. It was perfectly perfect!

See what I'm saying?? It just fit me perfectly and I felt soooo cute in it!

The colors are gorgeous!!

My final piece was the BAJEE COLLECTION ARTURO FLEECE JACKET. I had requested a jacket this time, but this one was WAYYYYYY to heavy for So. Cal. 
Plus, I felt like Sherlock Holmes in it. And it was black. Not my favorite. So this one went back.

 Not a fan. Not a fan at all. :(

Want to see some more Stitch Fix goodness??? Check out some winners from my November and December Fixes!!

The colors from my November Fix were to DIE FOR! Aren't they so pretty???

 Here are my favorite 2 pieces from that fix...

 The CATHLEEN SPLIT NECK TULIP SLEEVE BLOUSE by 19 Cooper. The color was so vibrant and this shirt just flows perfectly. I wore it for Thanksgiving AND Christmas, that's how much I love it!

I also LOVE this dress and I have received soooooo many compliments on it! This is the DOMINIC GEO PRINT SHIRT DRESS by 41 Hawthorn. 
I loved this one so much that I requested another one in a different print for my December Fix and guess what?? I got one!! YAY!

These colors are just beautiful to wear and the 3/4 sleeves are my absolute favorite!

Lastly, here is a peek at my December Fix. See that hint of denim??I FINALLY got the denim jacket I had been requesting for months and I cannot wait to wear it with my dresses in the Spring. :) SQUEAL!!!

This denim jacket is super comfy and the perfect shade of blue! It is called the ANJULI DARK WASH DENIM JACKET by JUST USA. 
I love every bit of this, and I am excited to wear it to school soon!

Remember that dress that I loved so much?? Well, here it is again in a different print. The navy and white honeycomb pattern is super interesting and it is totally comfortable and long enough to wear to work. Thank you Jessica for sending me another one!!

Finally, I LOVE this 19 COOPER CATHLEEN LEOPARD PRINT TULIP-SLEEVE BLOUSE. The leopard print makes me feel a little sassy when I wear it, and it looks fabulous with a black cardigan and flats. RAWR!! :)

So, what exactly is Stitch Fix, you ask??
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 via the US Post Office.
4. Look fabulous at work!!

It takes about 10 minutes to fill out your style profile online, and this part is super fun, because you get to choose different outfits that best represent you. I love this part! 

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!! Plus, you can do it once a month, every 2-3 weeks, or just one time to see what it's like. It's totally up to you!

If you sign up, would you please click on my links? See, I get a little referral every time someone like you signs up, and then I can keep doing this little fashion show for you each month, which I am sure is the highlight of your month, right?? :)
Win win win!!
Hope you're having a fantabulous week, friends!!

XOXO Kerri B
