My First “Fix” Revealed

February 27, 2013

By:

Well being that I am professional Stich Fixer now, I feel like I should do a professional Stitch Fix post. I know a lot of you are thinking “what in the world is this Stitch Fix you keep talking about?!” and to you I say “read more blogs..”. Like all great and necessary things, I found out about Stitch Fix from several of my favorite bloggers. All of a sudden they were dressing themselves all cute like and kept making mention about how they didn’t have to do any of the shopping themselves. As in they had a personal stylist sending them these little articles of adorableness. I was sold at personal stylist. Sometimes fashion and I don’t get along all that well. Not that my 7th grade basketball tee shirt isn’t trendy, I just don’t always know what to pair it with per say. After much debate, I decided to sign up for my first “fix” and see what all the fuss is about. It should be noted that this is not an advertised post and as much as I would’ve liked to receive these articles of clothing for free, I did not. Stitch Fix if you are reading–I am not opposed to that idea. Just kidding.
My husband loves when I pay full price for items…

So real briefly here’s the 411 on how this process works.
You sign up here. You go through this massive in-depth style profile which is similar to taking the SATs but a lot more fun. They will assign a personal stylist to you who will then work hard to figure out they think you will love. Stitch Fix will notify you when your first “fix” is on it’s way. Each fix is comprised of 5 items..it can be anything from pants, tops, dresses, skirts, scarves, jewelry, etc. The best part in all of this is that you have absolutely no idea what you are going to receive in your box. If you are into the idea of having Christmas monthly instead of yearly, this is your gig. You receive your fix and have 3 business days to decide what you are keeping or sending it back. And if you are like me–to help in your decision making process, you take photos in each of the outfits and then have your blog readers tell you what they like the best. So that’s what we are doing today. Hip Hip.

Let’s begin…

The first little diddy was this Tulle open back sweater. A to the dorbs. A little bit small but not small enough to have my mind made up completely. I kinda have this thing for open backs. Primarily so I can walk around singing “I’m bringin’ sexy baaaaack..” I paired this sucker with some jeans and boots. Simple and easy.
Just like I like it.

 earrings from Castellammare Designs

The second item up is this Everly polka dot top. Apparently my stylist caught wind that I also have this thing for polka dots. I can’t help it they are cute, they just are. You know what’s even cuter than polka dots though? Red pants WITH polka dots. 
 pants from Old Navy

Third we have this Awake Couture chevron maxi skirt. Frick. I also love all things maxi. Minus pads.
I wanted to make this piece functional for work so I paired it with a blazer and some bright colors to distract my mind from winter. It worked for those 3 glorious minutes.

Fourth was a turquoise/gold chain enamel bracelet. Turqoise makes me smile. Trouble once again for my wallet.

LOVE rings from Style Lately

And last but certainly not least was this C.Luce striped cardigan. If you know me at all, you know that above all else, my heart belongs to stripes. I will never stop buying stripes. Or strippers. Ha.
I put a green shirt underneath (because that’s what their suggestion told me to do) and then plopped on some nude pumps and called it a day.
So there we have it. My first “fix” revealed.
Now is where the fun comes in…tell me in the comments below which pieces you think I should keep. Option 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5. Or maybe all of em’. Perhaps you don’t like any of them.
Just tell me your favorites.

This will provide great ammunition with my husband and for that, I thank you.

If you want to get your fix on feel free to do so here…lifes too short to style yourself.
Or something like that?

Today’s fabulous little lady is Erin from Cali-Land Chic.

Erin is the mastermind behind all DIY projects. She is one of those who I look at her blog and I constantly am just asking myself “How?! I mean how?!” One of the coolest examples of this is when her and her husband took a wall that was made out of aluminum and covered it in wood pallets. You just have to look for yourself to see the awesomness I am talking about. When Erin isn’t busy turning her staircases into fabulous displays of her Instagram pictures, she is a simple wife to one who loves to drink wine and exercise. I’m still working on the whole exercise thing. Erin also recently opened up her own shop which houses wood pallet signs like the one hanging below in our lake cottage.

I must say, it is my favorite piece in the house so far. Luckily for you she is giving you 20% off your order with the code YELLOW. I kinda love this one. Make sure to go say hello to Erin and make yourself a crafty little friend today.

Let’s just say, until we started working on this post, I had no idea that there were different pillows for different sleep positions. I figured it was a one-size fits all approach, maybe just a preference of firm or soft! Well, needless to say, I was way off. I also learned that over 70% of […]
