Gettin’ my fix on. {Stitch Fix #6}

September 29, 2014/Style

I was super excited last week when a Stitch Fix arrived on my front step.


With the cooler fall weather coming, it has me in the mood to add a few things to my wardrobe. I had been trying to spruce things up before getting pregnant with Piper, and now that I’m getting back to my pre-baby size, I’m ready to get going again.  As someone who put off shopping with kids for YEARS, Stitch Fix is a great way to bring the store to me…. it’s so much easier trying everything on while the babes are sleeping/at school, than dragging infants and preschoolers to the store. It just is. And since this is my stage of life right now, I’m rolling with punches. All that to say, I couldn’t wait to try everything on. I took a look at the first item and thought, “Yep, I can do this.”


First item up is this peasant top with dark purple embroidery.


I think it’s cute and it adds a sweet bohemian piece to my closet. Next up is this v-neck tank.


I’m not a big fan. It’s a little boxy and reminds me of something my mom wore when I was a kid. I’m passing on this one. My stylist suggested pairing it with a little chevon skirt that was included.


The skirt is a little small in the waist so it’s going back. And I’m a little iffy if it’s cute anyway.

These dark green cords hit the mark. Unfortunately, I just bought a pair of dark green jeans a month ago… I actually like the texture of the cords better, but I’ve already worn the jeans so they’re staying and the cords are going. Being that I bought the exact same color and fit of pants that my stylist sent me made my day. Could it be I’m getting better at this style-thing?


Last, but not least, is this asymmetrical zip cardigan. I was torn on this one…


Henry does not love it, and while I don’t always dress for him, it’s nice to have pieces in my closet that he at least likes!  However, I thought it paired really well with my black striped tee and green pants. So it’s staying. I live enough of my life with him at work that I’ll have plenty of places to wear it.


What do we think of it zipped?

I have one more fix scheduled for the fall/winter to see if I can round things out a bit. Have you tried Stitch Fix yet? Let me know if you liked it. Or if you’re curious, click on the picture below to see what it’s all about. Here’s my first fix which explains how the whole process works.

    I love the green pants and the black sweater on you. Asymmetrical zipped clothing seems to be all the rage right now. It doesn’t sit well with my OCD neat brain, but I did buy a few moto jackets that have it. On another note, you have really pretty hair and it’s a great color. I know longer is easier because of being able to put it up in a ponytail on those days you don’t feel like doing it. If you ever considered making a huge change, a sleek bob with an asymmetrical line (slightly longer in the front) would look awesome on you. Look up pictures of Jennifer Lawrence in the past month or so since she has grown her hair out from the pixie cut. It’s so you! And you could either blow dry it totally straight for a hot date night =) or wear it more beachy wavy like she does. Just a thought. You look beautiful no matter what you wear or how you style your hair.

    (So….I’ve debated for the past few minutes about hitting post on this comment…wondering if you would find what I said offensive. I absolutely don’t mean to suggest a hair change is necessary, in case you take it that way. When I was looking at the pictures of your clothes, I could also see you having that type of bob haircut so thought I would make a suggestion if you ever did decide to cut your hair).
