Fashion Friday: Stitch Fix # 5

12 Feb

HAPPY FRIDAY! Sorry, I’m just a little bit excited about it. I’m currently at Daybreak Coffee Roasters sipping on some amazing Hazelnut french press coffee while I write as I took today off of work to have a “me” day which is something I think we all need from time to time. I really need to come here and blog more often! I finally caved and ordered another Stitch Fix and I think this is honestly the best one yet!

Here is an explanation in case you haven’t heard of Stitch Fix before: Stitch Fix is an online personal styling service. You pay a $20 styling fee up front and then you fill out an extensive styling profile which is sent over to a stylist who picks out five items (clothing, jewelry, scarves, accessories) which fit the personalized profile you have filled out. The items are sent to you and you try them on, with three days to decide on what you want. If you decide to keep anything, the $20 styling fee goes toward your purchase. If you purchase all five items, then you receive 25% off your entire order!

Item # 1: RD Style Keira 3/4 Sleeve Split Back Knit Top ($48)

As soon as I saw this one, I knew my stylist, Alison was totally in tune with exactly what I was looking for. I requested a top with a “party in the back” style and this one definitely delivered. I love the flowy fit which pairs well with the sexy back and navy is one of my favorite colors to wear.

Verdict: Kept. I mean, how could I not keep it? It is exactly what I asked for and I know I will wear it a lot, whether by itself or with a brightly colored tank top underneath.

Item # 2: Skies are Blue Dorian Embroidery Detail Blouse ($58)

I was a little bit hesitant when I saw this one because although it is flowy which is what I love, it’s a little bit out the box for me, style-wise. Dan thought the same thing but once I tried it on, he actually loved the fit and I really liked the way it photographed.

Verdict: Undecided. I have to really think about this one because I like the way it looks in the picture but I have to decide if I will really wear it that often. What do you guys think?

Item # 3: BRIXON IVY Pinson Drape Cardigan ($54)

This cardigan is one that I actually pinned to my Pinterest board and Alison mentioned that in her note to me! I am absolutely obsessed with this one and I love the pretty ruffles. It is so romantic and delicate and I want to wear it every single day of my life.

Verdict: Kept. This one was a keeper before I even tried it on. It is literally everything that I love in a top.

Item # 4: Just Black Dean Skinny Jean ($78)

I did request some colored jeans in my note to Alison and she delivered on that. With that being said, I’m having a tough time determining what I would wear with these for a top and they are ankle length (with a zipper on the bottoms) and petite which is something I have never worn before. I may just try to venture out today and find some colored jeans at a cheaper price with a little more length.

Verdict: Undecided. This is another one that I’m going to have to ponder. If I end up buying everything else, it may be more cost effective to just get these too so we shall see.

Item # 5: Daniel Rainn Poppins Crochet Trim Blouse ($64)

I feel like Alison just totally understood me with this fix. Polka dots are one of my favorite prints to wear and I adore this top. I asked for some pieces that would transition into Spring and this is totally on point. I can wear it now with a cardigan over it and then by itself when the weather warms up (it’s currently 8 degrees so not sure when that is happening exactly).

Verdict: Kept. I love the detail on the shoulders as well as the polka dots and it really looks great so it’s a keeper. The price point is high but I have such a hard time finding nicer tops to wear to work and out on the weekends.

As you guys can tell, I’m in a big dilemma with this fix (#firstworldproblems). I don’t hate any of the items and there are a couple that I absolutely love. I don’t feel bad spending money on higher quality items because I know they will last me a long time. I’m definitely going to have to think over if I want to keep the pants and the purple top based on how often I will wear them. Please let me know what you guys think as opinions from an outside perspective are always helpful!

Friday’s Random Thoughts

7 Nov

Happy Friday all! This is a four day weekend for me so to say that I’m excited is an understatement. I have seen a few other bloggers using their Fridays to share their random thoughts and since rambling is something I am VERY good at, I figured I would try it out.

1. Our dinners this week have been very delicious but healthy at the same time. I have managed to have a salad with dinner every single night this week and my new obsession is a salsa/plain greek yogurt dressing.

Naturally I topped this salad with an egg, loving that protein!

2. My workouts have been successful although the times have been all over the place. There were two days this week when I woke up at 4:30 with Dan and went to the gym with him and the three other days, I worked out no earlier than 9:30 at night. But I’m happy that I was able to find time to exercise every single day.

This is absolutely the truth

3. I was SO pumped to hear about Target‘s free shipping for the holidays. Also, I am just as excited that the postal service will be doing Sunday delivery during the holidays as well because I LOVE getting mail (I’m aware its an odd obsession). I will definitely be doing more online shopping this year.

4. Fall TV is getting so crazy! Almost all of our shows are leading up to their winter hiatus so it seems like every episode has a cliffhanger or some dramatic turn of events.

5. I am thinking about trying out Stitch Fix for a month or two. I have read some positive and negative reviews from other bloggers and I’m intrigued enough to possibly give it a try.

6. The iPhone 6 has been such an awesome upgrade for me from the 4s. It really isn’t as big as most people think although it did take some getting used to but I love it!

There are no words for how perfect this is.

7. Dan and I are taking an overnight trip to Newport, RI this weekend (hence the four day weekend for me). We are going Sunday to Monday and I could not be more excited. I have only been to Newport once which was this past summer and I’m excited to go back and get the full experience.

I hope you guys have a fabulous weekend!
