Stitch Fix #21 and 22 and a Giveaway

There’s good news and there’s bad news!  The bad news is that I have been so busy this summer that I’m behind on my Stitch Fix posts.  The good news is both of my last two boxes were FANTASTIC.   I don’t know if I’m getting better at expressing my likes and dislikes or if I have just found the BEST stylist ever (Love ya Katelyn!!!), but I love it either way. So today is a two-for. I’ll be showing you both fixes, and, of course, there will be that added little something for you at the end of the post . . . a chance to win your own $20 Stitch Fix Gift Certificate.

FIX #21

First up in my Fix #21 box was this AMAZING Light Green Urban Expression’s Elisha Zipper Accent structured Satchel.

I can’t tell you how much I love this purse.  First of all it’s green which might not be your thing, but it’s definitely mine and it will be a great piece to go with my Market and Spruce Julia Utility Jacket from May.

And the best part is it holds a TON of stuff.  It will hold my planner (Which I love by the way.  It’s from A Modern Teacher’s site.  I am all about supporting other teachers friends, and her planner is great.  Check it out HERE), an iPad (or two) my phone, wallet and I still have tons of room.

My next item was a Fun2Fun Torrance Lace Detailed Sleeveless Blouse.  I’m going to warn you, I usually shy a bit away from sleeveless these days because, let’s face it, when you start to hit a certain age, your arms begin to look a little less than youthful, but I knew I was going to be headed to HOT-lanta in a week after I got this fix, so I decided to give it a try.

I really loved the way it fit and felt on.  It was so cool and I knew it would be perfect for my trip.  I still don’t like my arms in sleeveless tops, but I have faith that the pretty lace detail will distract people from looking at my old lady arms.

Item number three coordinated perfectly with my blouse, this black Gilli Kelsey Skirt is SO comfortable, I would almost dare say I would give my yoga pants up for it.  Is has a wide elastic waist so it doesn’t bunch and would be perfect for date night out to an all you can eat buffet.

But seriously!  It’s one of my favorite pieces.  I love the pattern and the length, and together the blouse and skirt were a great fit.

The fourth item in my box was one of those key pieces that you just need to have in your wardrobe.  This Ark n Co, Burma Keyhole Blouse is a nice anchor piece that I knew I would be able to wear with dress pants to work or throw on with a pair of jeans when I needed something a little more dressy than a t-shirt.

I especially liked the detailed piped stitching on the front.  It was just so dang pretty.

Finally, my last item in this fix was this amazing Ryland Maxi Dress from Gilli.

I loved how the top was offset from the bottom pattern.  It is so soft and flowy.  It’s definitely once of the most comfortable Stitch Fix pieces I’ve ever gotten.  So that’s it for Fix 21 . . . ready to see Fix 22?

first of all, for those of you that aren’t quite familiar with Stitch Fix, let me give you the down and dirty before we move on . . .

WHAT’S STITCH FIX?

sf10-9

 

 

Only a girls best friend that’s what!  But no really, Stitch Fix is a personal shopping/stylist service that comes right to your  front door.  No joke,  you get amazing pieces without ever having to leave the comfort of you yoga pants to head to the mall.  Just fill out a personal style profile and answer a few simple questions about your style and color preferences.  Once that’s completed, it’s just $20.00 to have a stylist pick out 5 items of clothing especially for you.  You get your box and get to try on your pieces in the privacy of your own bedroom and with the benefit of coordinating them and seeing how they work with pieces that are already in your closet. Giving your stylist information about your preferences, size Pinterest style picks and any special events coming up in your schedule really helps them select amazing pieces for you.   I don’t want you to worry if you’re like me, and you don’t always ‘get’ how pieces are supposed to go together either.  You see Stitch Fix includes this great little cheat sheet with every fix.  It’s a guide to show you different ways to wear your ‘fix’ with items that you may already have in your closet. (I like to call it my ‘how to dress for dummies’ guide, because I desperately need all the help I can get.)    If you decide to keep a few or all of the items after trying them on, all you have to do is head on over to their site and check out.  They apply your original $20 to the balance of your ‘fix’ plus you will earn 25% off you bill if you choose to keep your entire fix.  So in my case, in the last two months that is exactly what happened.  I decided to keep everything, all five pieces in each fix.
But let’s say you don’t like anything they send you.  Well, then you simply place all the pieces in the prepaid shipping bag included with your fix, and it all (or some) goes back.  You don’t even have to pay for shipping.

FIX #22

My stylist, the lovely Katelyn, hit another home run with this fix as well.  First item out of the box was this Bash, Anza Sweetheart Lace Neckline Blouse.  Now we’ve talked about sleeveless before, but I have to tell you, Katelyn is smart enough to make these pieces so pretty in the front that I just know no one is looking at my arms.  So I’m ok with this piece.  In fact, I really love it.  (Don’t mind the wrinkles friends.  It’s fresh out of the box!)

It’s two toned with a navy body and black lace straps and front detailing.  Yep, it’s definitely a keeper.

The second items of the box was this pair of Margaret M (My favorite dress pants always come from Margaret M.) Emer Printed Straight Leg Pants.  I was a little freaked out over the pattern before I put them on, but I was quickly converted to a believer.

They are so incredible comfortable with an elastic waist and stretch material.  I know, again, that I can have a nice meal and not worry about feeling like I’m being slit apart in the middle.  But here’s the best part . . . look at the shirt and blouse together.
Yep!  That will work out just dandy!
Item three out of this month’s fix was a Market and Spruce, Kristah Ruffle Knit Blazer.
 I said ‘knit’ as in, it feels like butter when you put it on.  I mean it.  This blazer was like wearing a favorite t-shirt.  It’s so comfortable and let me show you something . . .
No.  I’m not really trying to give you a shot of my booty, but just giving you a glimpse at the sweet little ruffle detail in the back.  I LOVE how it looks with my new Margaret M pants and Bash blouse
or even with jeans.  Love Love Love!!
A Mo:Vint Chania Cardigan was the next item I found in my box from Fix#22.
This item is perfect for fall in Northern Michigan.  You know those mornings when it’s just a little chilly and you need something to get you through until it warms up around mid day?  Yep.  This is exactly what you need.  I also loved the little split side detail.
Finally, the last item Katelyn sent me was this 41Hawthorn Renesme Graphic Print Dress.
It’s a light teal-greenish color with a small gray pattern.  So fun and pretty, I was praying it would fit.
I think it might just be that perfect ‘meet the teacher dress.’  What do you think?
