As soon as I checked out from Fix #5 on the 27th I immediately moved my next fix up as close as possible so I could get one more before heading to the beach next week. I am not really NEEDING anymore beachy pieces per se, but I WANTED more. I can’t remember what my note said other than “more beachy pieces and I’d love to try a Corinna Dolman if possible.”
First off I ripped my sheet out to see who my stylist was and I am so beyond thrilled to see that Jaycie was actually on vacation and not just “on vacation.” Sara did a great job while Jaycie was gone and even sent me a 5/5 box, but I love having the same stylist. I honestly feel like having the same one will help them get to know you, your style, when to size up, when to size down, etc. Having a personal stylist is a relationship and I don’t think switching each time is going to get me very far.
First, I saw the Amour Vert Natoma Split Neck Silk Blouse I had pinned on my Pinterest. I had NO idea this gorgeous shirt cost $108, but I like it so much I really don’t care. My husband on the other hand might have a heart attack. I really wanted to try it on with my white distressed Adalyn jeans from Stitch Fix, but they are dirty, so off to Joe’s I go! The pictures really don’t do it justice; this blouse is GORGEOUS!!! I am keeping it for sure.
Next I tried on the Skies are Blue Encina Henley Blouse. At first glance I didn’t love the colors. I have a love/hate relationship with orange. Coral I can do, but anything orangier and I look like an oompa loompa. This is really cute and I like the split in the front, but I have some major gaping going on at the buttons. It’s fine as long as I don’t really move my arms in any way, but who is going to stand around like that?
Ahhh the Corinna! I keep seeing people receive these in their fixes and wonder what’s so special that everyone is going nuts over…. Well now I know! I want one of these in EVERY COLOR. These are super soft and flattering and can be worn just about any time of the year. I can easily picture this one with shorts and flip-flops, as well as jeans. I have a bit of a mommy tummy, though, so I am sucking in like a crazy person. Is it bad that I want to lose a little bit more weight and tone up JUST so the Corinna fits me better? KEEPING!
I will admit that I am not a skirt wearer… Especially maxi skirts. I have a love for maxi dresses, but with those I don’t have to fool with trying to find a top to go with it. I feel like with a maxi skirt – or any skirt for that matter – that the top must be fitted in order to look right and fitted tops are just NOT something I can wear. Again, with the mommy tummy troubles. I went digging through my closet to try to find something to go with this Papermoon Tamera Printed Maxi Skirt at least long enough to get a picture and see if I like it or not. I do, I really do, but I have no idea how to style it. The style card shows it with a while long sleeve and a pink 3/4 sleeve top. I like the idea of pink being with it, so I may need to go back through my closet.
Lastly is the Market & Spruce Jamie Button Down Cotton Shirt… Did you notice there’s no picture of me wearing it? That’s because it’s SO tight and ill-fitting that I wasn’t going to do that to myself much less everyone else. It was scary! Which is a shame because it’s really soft and I love the sleeves. I don’t even think me going up a size will do. This one is definitely going back.
I am really torn about what to do. My total with discount is $214… My total keeping only the 3 I am sure of is $214. I would be paying the exact same for the 3 but not getting a discount, if that makes sense. If I were just on the fence about the other 2 I would keep them for the discount no doubt. But knowing I will definitely NOT wear the Market & Spruce button down, then I feel like I shouldn’t keep it. Regardless, I am thrilled with this fix and looking forward to what comes at me next time!
To see all the items I’ve kept from previous fixes you can visit my Pinterest board here. If you’re new to my blog, you might be wondering… What is Stitch Fix? Stitch Fix is an online personal styling service that will send you 5 pieces in a box. You pay a $20 styling fee up front in order for a stylist to choose pieces for you. Once the box arrives you can try everything on then choose what to keep. There is a 25% discount for keeping all 5 pieces. Before you get started there is a style profile you fill out so your stylist can know your preferences. You can choose to receive no jewelry like I have, or you can leave all the options open and receive clothes, jewelry, and/or an accessory each time. You can set up automatic shipments as frequently as every 2-3 weeks, or you can choose to do manual shipments and tell Stitch Fix when you’d like to receive a box. They also have a referral system where you can receive a $25 credit for every person who signs up through your link and purchases a fix. So really, even if you hate everything in the box, which I highly doubt you will, you’re only out $20. You can ship everything back with a prepaid envelope and choose whether to get another fix next month. If you leave detailed feedback about your items, keep your style profile updated, make a note about any upcoming special occasions or vacations, and link to your Pinterest, you’re bound to have a great fix!
