December Stitch Fix Review (Stitch Fix #13)

stit

I say this every time: I know this is outside of my normal fitness/running blogging, but hey – its my blog, and I want to blog about my awesome clothes!  I actually managed to take semi real pictures this time! You should be proud!

Here’s how it works: You set up a style profile and you receive a box with 5 items in it.  You can choose the frequency with which you set up the box …once a month, every other month, etc.  You pay $20 to receive a box.  If you keep anything, that $20 goes toward your purchase.  If you keep all 5 items, you get a discount!  They send you anything from jewelry, to clothes to handbags. If you don’t want to keep an item, they have an envelope to send them back.

What I love about this is that I get a stylist that looks at my style profile and picks out items just for ME.  You can even link to a pinterest board so they can get inspiration and a better look into what you like.

Item Number 1 – Look by M Chloe Houndstooth Infinity Scarf ($28)

untitled1

This is the second time I’ve asked my stylist for an infinity scarf.  I liked it, it was incredibly warm, but I just didn’t love it. I couldn’t justify $28 for a scarf I didn’t love, when I have a closet stuffed full of scarves.

Verdict:  Return

Item Number 2 – Romolo Branson Metal Fringe Necklace ($34)

untitled

I asked my stylist for a versatile necklace that was neutral in color so that I could wear it with many different items.  This necklace did fit the bill, but it was a bit too modern for me.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 3 – Skies are Blue Lasalle Cross Front Blouse ($48)

untitled4

I love the color of this shirt and was super impressed with this pick from my stylist.  However, something about the fit was just a bit “off.”  It was tight in the upper arms (something I usually don’t have an issue with).  I liked it, but couldn’t justify keeping something that didn’t fit.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 4 – Ezra Eleanor Mixed Material Knit Top ($38)

untitled2untitled3

I had to show a picture of the back of this top.  Its beautiful. This was a bit of a surprise to me.  Its not something I typically gravitate toward, but I really liked it. Its hard to tell in the picture, but the shirt is navy. Navy is not a normal color for me…all the more reason to get it!

Verdict: Keep

Item Number 5 – RD Style Maureen Twisted Seam Elbow Patch Sweater ($64)

untitled5

I pinned many sweaters like this on my pinterest board, and my stylist took note.  I love it! The husband didn’t get why this is so cool, but I just love the leather elbow patch.  The sweater is super comfy and I couldn’t resist!

Verdict: Keep

Overall Impression

I liked most everything in this box.  I appreciated my stylist finding items she thought I’d enjoy. I didn’t end up keeping the two things that I pointedly had requested, but I love that she really made an effort to find items I’d love.  I love the surprise of the sweater from my pinterest boards.

Despite the fact that I don’t keep everything, I really do like my stylist and most everything she sends me! The sizing has gotten much better, and almost everything fits now!

Item Number 1 – Brixon Ivy Reyne Lace Shoulder Blouse ($58)

IMG_0049

This top was beautiful and I loved it.  It was simply too tight.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 2 – Pixley Sines Skinny Lapel Blazer ($74)

IMG_0048

This blazer was great! I was surprised to see another blazer, I thought my stylist had given up, but this one is great!

Verdict: Keep

Item Number 3 –  Margaret M Emer Jacquard Print High Waisted Cropped Pant ($98)

IMG_0051

I really like the pattern on these pants and they were beautiful.  I just don’t think cropped pants are a good look for me.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 4 – Liverpool Collen Straight Leg Jean ($78)

IMG_0053

I know its boring to keep jeans from a fix, but I loved them.  The fit is great and they are so soft!

Verdict: Keep

Item Number 5 – Dee Elle Auriga Cowl Neck Waffle Knit Top ($58)

IMG_0050

I loved the texture of this sweater, as well as the color.  However there was something about it that I just didn’t love.  It wasn’t very flattering.  I think it was probably because it didn’t have enough structure to it.

Vedict: Return

Overall Impression

This box was much better than the last fix.  I asked Michal to stick with more classic pieces and she delivered. I was sad that the top didn’t fit, but I’ve asked for a larger size in my next fix if its available.  I love that the stylists really listen to what you want!

October Stitch Fix Review (Stitch Fix #11)

I say this every time: I know this is outside of my normal fitness/running blogging, but hey – its my blog, and I want to blog about my awesome clothes!  I actually managed to take semi real pictures this time! You should be proud!

Spoiler alert: This was not such a good fix….

Item Number 1 – Look By M Alzora Zig Zag Infinity Scarf ($34)

IMG_3729

I love infinity scarves.  In fact, I implicitly asked for an infinity scarf.  And I know this is “in” style-wise right now, but I was just not feeling it.  Its not me.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 2 – RD Style Ridda Mixed Material Knit Top ($58)

IMG_3728

This top was just ok for me stylistically, but the fit was terrible. It made me look very busty.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 3 –  RD Style Klarissa Cuffed Straight Leg Pant ($74)

IMG_3730

These pants were cute.  But they were SUPER fitted and totally not appropriate for work.  I couldn’t see myself wearing them casually, so I didn’t keep them.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 4 – Collective Concepts Airlia Dress ($88)

IMG_3731

This was the item I agonized over. I had asked for a dress like this.  The shape was PERFECT.  The fit was great.  The pattern….not so much.  I tried it on, styled it with boots and tights, and just couldn’t commit.  I just didn’t LOVE it.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 5 – Tart Artois Faux Leather Vest  ($68)

IMG_3727

This was a complete miss. The color was terrible the fit was just ok and it wasn’t my style at all.

Vedict: Return

Overall Impression

This box was a total miss, and it was my normal stylist! I’m not sure what happened.  I really wonder if its just because I don’t like the stuff that is in style this season or what.  This is NOT indicative of my normal experience with Stitch Fix, so I’m hoping the next fix will be better!

September Stitch Fix Review (Stitch Fix #10)

stit

I say this every time: I know this is outside of my normal fitness/running blogging, but hey – its my blog, and I want to blog about my awesome clothes!  I actually managed to take semi real pictures this time! You should be proud!

Here’s how it works: You set up a style profile and you receive a box with 5 items in it.  You can choose the frequency with which you set up the box …once a month, every other month, etc.  You pay $20 to receive a box.  If you keep anything, that $20 goes toward your purchase.  If you keep all 5 items, you get a discount!  They send you anything from jewelry, to clothes to handbags.

What I love about this is that I get a stylist that looks at my style profile and picks out items just for ME.  You can even link to a pinterest board so they can get inspiration and a better look into what you like.

Spoiler alert: I almost kept everything!!!

Item Number 1 – Street Level Huron Mixed-Material Reversible Tote ($54)

IMG_3653

Nice, but not a stunner!

This was a pretty cool tote, I liked the fact that it was reversible.  But I have a ton of totes, and there was nothing particularly special about this one to me….especially not for $54.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 2 – Market & Spruce Aleah Heathered V-Neck Dolman Top ($)48

IMG_3651

Looks a little dark here, but its forest green.

So I’ve been pinning Dolman tops for awhile, but haven’t gotten any.  This one is great.  The material is super soft and the color is great!  I’m fair skinned with dark hair, so jewel tones tend to look good on me.

Verdict: Keep

Item Number 3 –  Papermoon Keever Button Back Blouse ($48)

IMG_3649

Love the button back!

IMG_3648

Ahhh so cute!

This was the top in my last fix that I loved.  I wanted to keep it so bad, but it was just too small!  I was so pleased to see that my stylist had sent it to me in a bigger size.  It fits great and I can’t wait to wear it!

Verdict: Keep (DUH!)

Item Number 4 – Skies are Blue Tabor Crochet Detail Blouse ($58)

IMG_3650

I was cautiously optimistic about this one when I pulled it out, but when I tried it on it was wayyyy too short.  The cut was not flattering at all.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 5 – Market & Spruce Elissa French Terry Striped Moto Jacket  ($74)

IMG_3652

This was a bit of a surprise for me.  For some reason, I don’t do well with stitch fix and jackets.  But this was a slam dunk! I love it.  Its very comfortable and I love the zipper and button details.

Vedict: Keep

Overall Impression

I loved the style of everything.  Had the Skies are Blue blouse worked, I may have just kept the tote to get the 25% discount off the whole box.  However, I couldn’t justify keeping all of that when I didn’t love the tote and the blouse didn’t work.  Style-wise, this was great.  My stylist is fantastic and I love the mix of things she’s sending me.  I asked for more fall stuff next fix!

August Stitch Fix Review (Stitch Fix #9)

So I know I just posted July’s review, but I’m a little behind!

I say this every time: I know this is outside of my normal fitness/running blogging, but hey – its my blog, and I want to blog about my awesome clothes!  I’m going to apologize in advance for my absolutely terrible awful ugly pictures. I planned to take pictures with them on…but the best laid plans….

Here’s how it works: You set up a style profile and you receive a box with 5 items in it.  You can choose the frequency with which you set up the box …once a month, every other month, etc.  You pay $20 to receive a box.  If you keep anything, that $20 goes toward your purchase.  If you keep all 5 items, you get a discount!  They send you anything from jewelry, to clothes to handbags.

What I love about this is that I get a stylist that looks at my style profile and picks out items just for ME.  You can even link to a pinterest board so they can get inspiration and a better look into what you like.

Spoiler alert: This was was a little disappointing.

Item Number 1 –  Pixley Turk Bow Back Top ($48)

IMG_3594

I loved this top, but it was way too tight.  It was such a cute little polka dotted top.  I really wish it had worked.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 2 –  Papermoon Deandra Multi Strap Tops ($44)

IMG_3593

This shirt was a little different than things I normally like, but I thought I’d give it a try.  It was way too tight.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 3 –  Papermoon Keever Button Back Blouse ($48)

IMG_3597

I wanted this to work so bad.  I love the top so much. Its one of my favorite pieces that she’s sent me.  It was disappointed when it didn’t fit.  I almost kept in for when I lose more weight.   That’s how much I loved it.  I was going to keep something that didn’t fit!

Verdict: Return

Item Number 4 –  Renee C Huebert Space Dye Open Cardigan ($58)

IMG_3596

$58 was too much for this style cardigan.  I could get it much cheaper somewhere else.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 5 –  Just Black Adorra Skinny Jean ($88)

IMG_3595

I’m always apprehensive when she sends me jeans.  But this one hit the mark.  Super dark wash and lots of stretch.  They are a little long, so I’ll have to hem them…..quite a few inches.  Don’t care…they are amazing!

Vedict: Keep

Overall Impression

If everything had fit, I probably would have kept the entire box for the first time.  However, the sizing was off.  I know I’ve gained a few pounds, but not so much that the stuff from previous fixes stopped fitting.  I don’t know why the fit was so off this time! Odd.  I’ve asked for a bunch of fall stuff in my next fix.  Lets see how it goes!

July Stitch Fix Review (Stitch Fix #8)

So I know its August, and I’m posting July’s fix, but hey, better late than never.

I say this every time: I know this is outside of my normal fitness/running blogging, but hey – its my blog, and I want to blog about my awesome clothes!  I’m going to apologize in advance for my absolutely terrible awful ugly pictures. I planned to take pictures with them on…but the best laid plans….

Here’s how it works: You set up a style profile and you receive a box with 5 items in it.  You can choose the frequency with which you set up the box …once a month, every other month, etc.  You pay $20 to receive a box.  If you keep anything, that $20 goes toward your purchase.  If you keep all 5 items, you get a discount!  They send you anything from jewelry, to clothes to handbags.

My stylist is the best.  She completely gets my style! Here’s looking at you Michael!

Item Number 1 –  Bancroft Danielle Long Knot Necklace ($48)

I loved this necklace immediately.  I have worn it a ton already. I forgot to grab a picture of this!

Verdict: Keep!

Item Number 2 –  Skies are Blue Taven V-Neck Blouse ($44)

IMG_3589

This shirt was a little different than things I normally like, but it fit well and I really liked it once I tried it on.

Verdict: Keep

Item Number 3 –  Market & Spruce Kristah Ruffle Knit Blazer ($78)

IMG_3591

This blazer was just way too tight and not flattering at all.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 4 –  41Hawthorn Maurice V-Neck Top ($54)

IMG_3592

I liked the look of this shirt and the color, but it didn’t it.  Also, $54 seemed a bit expensive for the top.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 5 –  Market & Spruce Ivy Crochet Back Tab-Sleeve Blouse ($58)

IMG_3590

I loved the color of this top immediately upon pulling it out of the box.  Its a style of shirt I wear often, but the open back was something new for me.  It is a great shirt to wear to work, so I decided to keep it!

Vedict: Keep

Overall Impression

This fix was an interesting mix of perfect selections and not so good sizing.  I really love the pieces I kept, but I’m still frustrated on why we can’t get the sizing right.  I’m asking for more work tops in my next fix.

June Stitch Fix Review (Stitch Fix #7)

stit

I know this is outside of my normal fitness/running blogging, but hey – its my blog, and I want to blog about my awesome clothes!  I’m going to apologize in advance for my horrible ugly pictures. I planned to take pictures with them on…but the best laid plans….

Here’s how it works: You set up a style profile and you receive a box with 5 items in it.  You can choose the frequency with which you set up the box …once a month, every other month, etc.  You pay $20 to receive a box.  If you keep anything, that $20 goes toward your purchase.  If you keep all 5 items, you get a discount!  They send you anything from jewelry, to clothes to handbags.

What I love about this is that I get a stylist that looks at my style profile and picks out items just for ME.  You can even link to a pinterest board so they can get inspiration and a better look into what you like.

I have Michal back! I love my stylist, and I’m so glad she’s back after May’s fix!

Item Number 1 –  Urban Expressions  Adelade Woven Fold-Over Clutch ($48)

I had asked for a silver purse to use for a wedding I was attending this month, and my stylist delivered!  This purse was too cute not to keep.  It is made by Urban Expressions, same as the crossbody bag she sent in my April #2 fix.

Verdict: Keep!

Item Number 2 –  Market & Spruce Austin Polka Dot & Striped Mixed Material Shirt ($44)

IMG_3471

I liked the look of this shirt, but it was not very flattering in the tummy.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 3 –  Sweet Rain Rochford Button Down Blouse ($48)

IMG_3473

This top was super cute and super feminine.  I’m not a massive fan of see through shirts that require camis or tanks underneath, but this was perfect for work.

Verdict: Keep

Item Number 4 –  Level 99 Marlowe Denim Short ($98)

IMG_3474

I had asked for a neutral, solid color pair of shorts.  Level 99 pants have been good to me, but these were too tight.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 5 –  Level 99 Patrick Cropped Chino Pant ($88)

IMG_3472

My stylist sent me these Level 99 pants.  I hoped that I would like them….the olive green would be a new color for me, but these were very unflattering and showed every curve….not in a good way!

Vedict: Return

 

Overall Impression

I enjoyed the style of everything I received in this fix, but the sizing and fit was a little off.  I’m not sure why things didn’t work this time.  I’m loving all the purses she is sending me, but I’m going to have a purse problem if that’s all I keep!  I’ve asked for more tops for work in my next fix – so lets see how it goes!

May Stitch Fix Review (Stitch Fix #6)

stit

Like I say every time – I know this is outside of my normal fitness/running blogging, but hey – its my blog, and I want to blog about my awesome clothes!  I’m going to apologize in advance for my horrible ugly pictures. I planned to take pictures with them on…but the best laid plans….

Here’s how it works: You set up a style profile and you receive a box with 5 items in it.  You can choose the frequency with which you set up the box …once a month, every other month, etc.  You pay $20 to receive a box.  If you keep anything, that $20 goes toward your purchase.  If you keep all 5 items, you get a discount!  They send you anything from jewelry, to clothes to handbags.

What I love about this is that I get a stylist that looks at my style profile and picks out items just for ME.  You can even link to a pinterest board so they can get inspiration and a better look into what you like.

So, I had a new stylist for this box, and spoil alert: I wasn’t a huge fan.

Item Number 1 –  Bancroft Kate Stone and Pave Disc Layering Necklace($34)

I really liked this necklace, but debated if it was worth the $34.  I decided to keep it.  As of the writing of this post, I’ve gotten a ton of wear out of it!

Verdict: Keep

Item Number 2 –  Daniel Rainn Tolley Crochet Panel Top ($68)

IMG_3276

No, no, no.  Didn’t like this at all.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 3 –  Level 99 Cindie Printed Short ($68)

IMG_3277

The shorts were really cute and fit well, but the problem was the print was not me at all, and I couldn’t find anything in my wardrobe to wear them with.  I asked for them in a different color if possible.

Verdict: Return

Item Number 4 –  Fun2Fun Baker Print Split Neck Top ($44)

IMG_3275

So the bicycle print top I loved from my last fix? This is the same shirt but with  a different pattern.

Verdict: Keep

Item Number 5 –  Donna Morgan Divya Dress ($128)

IMG_3274

For the price of this item, I thought it would be great.  Nope.  This was the most unflattering dress.  I’m quite busty, so the dress just did not work for me.

Vedict: Return

 

Overall Impression

I want Michal back.  I appreciate that this stylist took some time to find items that she thought I would like.  She incorporated some things that I liked, but missed the mark on what is flattering on me.  I asked for Michal to style my next fix.

Advice: If you like a stylist, ask for them by name to keep returning.

April Stitch Fix Review #2 (Stitch Fix #5)

 

stit

I know this is outside of my normal fitness/running blogging, but hey – its my blog, and I want to blog about my awesome clothes!  I’m going to apologize in advance for my horrible ugly pictures. I planned to take pictures with them on…but the best laid plans….

Here’s how it works: You set up a style profile and you receive a box with 5 items in it.  You can choose the frequency with which you set up the box …once a month, every other month, etc.  You pay $20 to receive a box.  If you keep anything, that $20 goes toward your purchase.  If you keep all 5 items, you get a discount!  They send you anything from jewelry, to clothes to handbags. If you don’t want to keep an item, they have an envelope to send them back.

What I love about this is that I get a stylist that looks at my style profile and picks out items just for ME.  You can even link to a pinterest board so they can get inspiration and a better look into what you like.

When I pulled everything out of the box, I was thinking that this could be the first time I kept EVERYTHING!

Item Number 1 –  Urban Expressions Brittany Top Zip Crossbody Bag($48)

I literally squealed with delight when I opened up this item.  It is the CUTEST bag and the most wonderful color.  I didn’t care how much it cost, I knew that I was keeping it!  I failed to get a picture of it, but don’t worry – I will get one eventually!

Verdict: Keep!

Item Number 2 –  Margaret M Christiana Textured Pencil Skirt ($78)

IMG_3245

Ya’ll.  I’m not a pencil skirt kinda girl.  I like things to flow away from my tummy.  But this skirt was too cute, I couldn’t pass it up.  It was stretchy, so I didn’t feel like a stuffed sausage.  I normally wouldn’t have picked a navy skirt, but I really like it.  I’m playing around with different tops, seeing how I could make this work.

Verdict: Keep

Item Number 3 –  Ark n Co Lucas Hi Lo Embroidered Sleeveless Top ($48)

IMG_3246

I liked the look of this top, but sadly it was too tight in the stomach and it was not very flattering.  I wanted so badly to keep it!

Verdict: Return

Item Number 4 –  Fun2Fun Toronto Bicycle Print Split Neck Top ($48)

IMG_3244

I wasn’t sure about this top.  It looked too small and was a little too hipster looking for me.  BUT – I ended up loving it! The fit was superb and it looks amazing with the pencil skirt.  10 points for my stylist for this one! I already wore it and got a ton of compliments on it.

Verdict: Keep

Item Number 5 –  Market & Spruce Colibri Paisley Print Sleeveless Top ($44)

IMG_3247

Paisley….stylist, you get me.  However, it was too tight in the bust.  I wanted so badly to make it work, but the fit was just not right.  This pick is proof that she really does get my style though!

Vedict: Return

 

Overall Impression

This box was a slam dunk in terms of style.  There were a few things I may not have picked for myself, but I ended up loving! The fit is getting MUCH better.  I’ve learned that it really does help for you to tell your stylist why it doesn’t fit.  Don’t just say that its too tight, tell them that its too tight in the bust and the buttons gape, or that its too short in the front, or that it just clings to your tummy wrong.  All of those pieces of advice will help her get the fit better next time.

Weekly Update – 4/13/15

I finally got three solid workouts in this week! I was very excited and proud of myself.  Its been a rough few months and it was good to get back to a more consistent routine.

Monday

I swear I’m never getting back into my Monday night routine of yoga.  I decided to attack the guest room and see if I could clear out enough room to get to the futon.  I was able to pack a lot of things away in the closet, although the setup in there is less than ideal.  I’m not making the best use of the space in there.  Got some laundry done, finally got the dishes washed (don’t judge me!) and took care of some bills and the like.

Tuesday

I worked out with Danny.  He was running a few minutes late….bad weather had caused some traffic delays.  I warmed up with 1600 meters rowing.  We did 3 sets of the following:

1. Overhead cable assisted squat (12)

2. Cable cross row, extend, y raise (6)

3. Overhead walking lunges

Seems pretty simple, but the focus was on form and stabilization.  Its harder than it looks!

Wednesday

No workout for me.  Even though I already thought I had plantar fasciitis, getting that truly diagnosed kinda sucked.  I did my first PT session and it was awful.

Thursday

Nicole – and new machine day!!!  We did Jacob’s Ladder for the first time and its so weird.    We did 3 round of the following:

1. SA KB Swings (10 each side)

2. SA Clean and press (10 each side)

3. SA Suitcase Deadlifts (10 each side)

4. Jacob’s Ladder (1 min, 2 min, 3 min – increase a minute per round)

After my workout, Michael and I went to my friend Jessie’s house for our cake tasting!  She will be doing the cake pops for our wedding and she had an amazing spread for us of 24 different flavor combinations!

Friday

My dear sweet love gave me $100 to go shopping at Old Navy! I got lots of great summer clothes!

Saturday

Danny was away at a class, so Nicole and I worked out together outside.

1.  10 hex bar dead-lifts/100 meter row

2. 20 wall balls/200 meter row

3. 30 resistance band side steps/300 meter row

4. 40 walking lunges with dumbbells/400 meter row

After my workout with Nicole, I headed home to do yard work for about 2 hours.  I sufficiently wore myself out, but got myself cleaned up and then mom and I headed off to the mall to get some more spring shopping done.  Victoria’s Secret got the bulk of my money!

Sunday

Michael was out of town for the weekend, so after church, I headed to Erin’s house and we grabbed lunch at Noodles and Company.  After that, I headed home to do some errands, laundry, etc. Michael and I are going to Florida and had a lot to get done. I went to Kohl’s and got some new pants for work – I was LONG overdue.
