If you decide to sign up for Stitch Fix based on my review, please use this link to do so. I would appreciate the referral credit. Stitch Fix does not compensate me in any way to write my reviews, so all opinions are totally honest. One thing I appreciate about Stitch Fix is that it does not have to be a subscription service (you aren't obligated to get a fix every month or ever again, but you can select to get a fix whenever you do want it).
The theme of this month's box was HIT and MISS!
My stylist was Angie. Here was the description for what I wanted:
"We're spending a weekend in Seattle...I'd love something to wear for out for dinner and for being tourists during the day. A dress...jeans...a cute top? I'm open to adventure, but I really want a colorful fix. NO JEWELRY...all clothes please! NO over sized cardigans. I don't like that look. Patterns are fun!"
Up first, the Victoria Distressed Jean and Simpson Halter Blouse:
Damn, I didn't want to like these jeans: they are expensive, white, and have holes in the knees, but I LOVED them. They fit great, are just the right length, and are so comfortable. I couldn't deny myself. KEPT.
The halter top was silky soft and way fancier than I thought a halter top could be. I love how it looks with these jeans, with shorts, or with a beige skirt. It can be dressed up or down. KEPT.
Up next, the Maggy dress.
How awful is this dress? Let me count the ways...I didn't think it was flattering, and I have no idea how any woman could wear a bra with this. I'm not a fan of strapless bras for a casual dress...that just isn't comfortable.
I couldn't wait to change out of this. RETURNED.
Up next, the Kalie distressed denim jacket and Taluca Printed pencil skirt.
The jacket was too small...and also, it is not 1990 anymore (this is bringing back bad middle school memories for me). RETURNED.
However, the skirt is super comfortable. I love that I could wear it with a blouse for work, or wear it out and about this summer. KEPT.
So, in conclusion, I kept 3 and returned 2...not bad.
I love a good fix for a special occasion. Our special occasion is coming up. Brendan and I leave Saturday morning with my family for Seattle. On Sunday, we embark on an Alaskan Cruise together. This trip will be the first family vacation we have had in I don't know how long! In 2011, we took a trip to Palm Springs, California without my dad, and in 2013, my parents, Brendan and I went to a wedding in Las Vegas...but it has been so long since all of us traveled together. I'm REALLY excited to have a family trip and also to see Alaska. Brendan and I have planned some fun excursions. We have stops in Tracy Arm, Juneau, Sitka, Ketchikan, and Victoria British Columbia. Brendan and I will stay an extra couple of days in Seattle and see the sights.
On Tuesday, I got my hair done, so it is vacation ready.
If only I could style it as well as Peyton...it's nice to have a real haircut again, but I usually get so impatient with the blowdryer and just settle for air drying.
Well, here's to turning in my grades for the interim class tomorrow and to vacation starting Saturday!
