My First Stitch Fix Experience

I know that I just met you, Stitch Fix, but I'm in love. I'm in love, I'm in love, and I don't care who knows it. Can I just say that I have little to no free time in my life, so having clothes and shoes delivered (!!!) is the most genius idea ever. (Do you know how hard is it to go shopping with a 7.5 month old? To put it politely, my girl has a short attention span. But that's to be expected, child is a baby.) Anddd as if having a delivery of goodies isn't the best thing ever, subscribing to Stitch Fix exposes me to things that I may not otherwise try on. It's officially official. I am HOOKED. I see this relationship lasting a long time.

Stitch Fix is a subscription that you can receive every 2-3 weeks, every 3 months, or somewhere in between. I am signed up for the monthly occurrence as a treat to myself. It's a flat $20 styling fee (free shipping both ways too!), but the beautiful thing is that you get to apply that $20 towards whatever you purchase. The subscription contains five pieces specific to YOU, which I really adore. I also loved the fact that my stylist included various ways to wear the pieces and a personalized note. I am super old school in that I love snail mail, and it almost felt like Jen was my long lost pen pal who knew my Pinterest heart. So, without further ado: 

Minal V-Neck 3/4 Sleeve Solid Blouse
I am super basic and love shirts like this fuchsia one. It's sheer, soft, baggy, but still stylish. I paired it with my new Lilly scarf that I received for Christmas and was sorta in love with it all.

Celinda Lurex Detail Open Cardigan
I love me a frumpy sweater, ESPESH if it's got a cheetah design. But, the arms were a tiny bit too long, and I had a hard time with the price. But this was no easy decision because it was super comfy and covered my back side! 

Kathy Striped Fit & Flare Dress
Nothing bad to say about this pretty dress expect I already own one almost exactly like it. I seriously love stripes, but I couldn't justify keeping it. It is stretchy (mama like), soft, and can be paired with so many other prints. 

Adorra Skinny Jean
So first off, these jeans are adorbz. But I was a tiny confused by them because they had the word 'ankle' written on the tag and they also said '30' (for the size. hey, no shame here)... but they appeared to be much smaller than a 30 and much longer than ankle length. Sure enough, they were tight and long. Two things I don't want in jeans. I managed to make them work for the pictures all cutesy-like, but I couldn't keep them longterm because they just didn't work for my body 100% right. If I received a larger and shorter size, I would be sold.

Snare Ankle Bootie by Seychelles
To be honest, until about 6 months ago, I didn't understand women who wore booties. "Why?" A famous quote by yours truly when it came to booties. I just didn't understand. And then, one day out of the blue, all of that changed. I kept seeing booties everywhere. Bootie here, bootie there. BOOTIES EVERYWHERE. That being said, you can imagine the pure excitement that I had when I opened my Stitch Fix box with these amazing (leather!!!) booties. Come to mama. 
In case you couldn't tell from my reviews about the items, here's the down low on what I kept: I decided I HAD to have the fuchsia shirt because it not only fit me well (I love all things baggy), but also because the color is actually something I didn't have in my closet therefore I needed it. And... drum role please... I somehow managed to also convince hubby that I needed the booties. He pretty much only approved because he wishes I wore stuff like this more often instead of yoga pants (#momlife). But I am super giddy over these booties that you have no idea. 

And one more because cute baby alert.

  7. hah. My husband will sometimes tell me it's fine to get a new top or something if it's something other than a plain t-shirt. What can I say? I stay at home with little people, t-shirts are my happy place :) I love that top you got though!
