My First "Fix" Revealed

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.
arrow bracelet from Metal Marvels
 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.
 earrings from Christine Marie Studio//necklace from KO Jewelry


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.

    1. In your style profile you indicate your price range. I believe their "normal" price point is $75 per piece however this lady is cheap so the items in my box ranged from $35-$68 each. Good luck :)

  9. I love clothes but hate the shopping - this looks amazing! Unfortunately I went to sign up and they don't offer their services yet to us full-figured ladies. :(

    Also, that nautical living room is right up my alley! will have to follow her, too!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Oh, and my vote definitely goes to that cardigan! LOVE the colors!

    ReplyDelete
  11. The maxi {not pad} and cardigan!!! But these all look like they were made just for you, girl lol

    ReplyDelete
  12. Polka dots, maxi skirt, and the bracelet for sure! The rest is cute too but those were my favorites! www.five27jones.blogspot.com

    ReplyDelete
  13. They all are so cute, but the polka dots and red pants are my fav! Great idea- I need to try this! :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. I was just standing in front of my wardrobe thinking..."I wish I had a stylist", so gonna check this out. Totally in LURV with that maxi skirt, I have been looking for one of those everywhere! Gonna have to buy 2 of those bracelets, 1 for me, and 1 for the pre-teen who "borrows" all my cool stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I love the pink open back sweater, super cute!!! And the polka dot blouse. Those two are my fav! :)

  17. I love outfit 2 & 5 :) very cute!!

  18. Oh my goodness I love that cardigan! I need it in my closet asap. I may need to look into doing this thing, too. I like getting packages with pretty clothes! And shopping is just exhausting sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  19. such a fun idea, i definitely may have to check it out!! and i love the maxi skirt on you, i definitely think you should keep it!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I know how much I would love to sign up for Stitch Fix, but I know I would never want to send anything back. My willpower for clothes is terrible!

    You should definitely keep the chevron maxi and the polka dot top! They're both super cute!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love the idea of Stitch fix! Wish they had a cheap girl line or a mommy budget lol.

    I like everything they picked out for you. If you have the means, I say keep it all :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. This is the coolest idea! That chevron maxi is to die for! And I love polka dots too (and I definitely pair mine with bright pants too!)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love the first shirt and that cardigan!!! And of course the maxi and polka a dots is adorable. But I'd say the first shirt and cardigan are my faves. Next, stich fix post (are you gonna do this every month!?) could you include prices?? LOVE the arrow bracelet from Metal Marvals!

    ReplyDelete
  24. The cardi (great colors on you!), the maxi, and the dots are must keeps! And the bracelet is just a given.. duh ;)

    Love the way you put together all the outfits... saw your Instagram post when you got your box to I looked it up and immediately got on their waiting list. Haha

    Great post!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Get rid of the polkadot top. everything else can and should stay :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I liked your style before better, these not so much. Besides being super expensive waste of money to me it kind of takes the individuality out of stylin our own outfits. Not for me but go for it if you like the clothes.

    ReplyDelete
  27. That striped skirt has to go please, you never want stripes on that part of your body !!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Maxi, cardigan, and the bracelet were my faves!

  29. First off, I love them ALL. But, if your hubby is being a meany and is making you send some of it back, I'd keep the polka dot top, bracelet and maxi skirt. Those are ah-dorable. Back to my first statement though - KEEP THEM ALL ;)

    ReplyDelete
  30. You got some great stuff in your Stitchfix box. The polka dot top with the red pants looks great and I love the green tank with the yellow sweater!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love everything you got! I've been doing stitchfix for a few months now and I'm obsessed! It's the only shopping I do now ;) I hope some of your items show up in my next fix! I love everything.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Wow, they are all adorable! My favorites have to be the maxi skirt and the enamel bracelet. But, everything looks amazeballs on you :)

  33. I would definitely keep the skirt! It is too cute.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love the skirt and the bracelet!
    And I am very intrigued by Stitch Fix...I may be single if I sign up though...hmmm.
    And thanks for your sweet words about me lady! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh that a tough one, they're all so stinking cute!
    I think number two and number four would be my keep picks. Although I do love a good chevron maxi...

    Just love // kelly

    ReplyDelete
  36. This looks like a lot of fun, but I feel like it would get me into a ton of trouble! The polka dot top is definitely my favorite. I'm like you, anything with a dot, I love it. I also love that style in general. It's perfect for skinny jeans!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I like them all! Boy I'll be in trouble when mine comes in on the 3rd... Thanks for sharing those!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love them all, but I'm obsessed with that chevron maxi. It looks so great on you, especially with the blazer!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Where did the chevron maxi come from? Love!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I think the idea of StitchFix is awesome, but personally I like the work of finding items that are "me" as opposed to someone else picking them out. I don't love shopping, but I love the feeling of finding the perfect thing myself!

    All that to say, your "stylist" really did pick out some cute items. I love the chevron maxi!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Id keep the first 3 looks. not so keen on the last 2. you look awesome in all of them though :)

    ReplyDelete

    1. actually id nix just the last one (you wrote 1-5 but really there are only 4 I believe).

  42. I haven't heard of this! What an interesting idea. Filling out my profile now...

  45. What the heck- that is amazing!! I love it all, but especially the cardigan & the maxi skirt.

  46. Love the skirt and the cardigan, and well everything, but those are my two favorites! I think I'd be horrible at deciding what I liked and what to send back, so that's why I haven't tried Stitch Fix yet lol!

  47. Love the skirt and the sweater. I have a thing for the open back too and anytime your outfit brings JT to mind you know it's good.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Maxi skirt, dotted shirt, and yellow striped sweater! The pink shirt is just ok. You look great in it (that's a given) but it's just kinda blah compared to the others. Bracelet is nice, but I've seen ones on your blog before that really rock.

    Let us know what you keep (if anything!)

    ReplyDelete
  49. I can't even begin to pick a fav but I do love all the jewelry~ especially the arrow bracelet and LOVE ring! new follower.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Love them all!! Love how you styled them too. The Maxi skirt is my favorite look, the polka dots for sure a keeper.

  51. I love that maxi skrit and the yellow cardigan. You look great!

  52. I LOVE this idea of you showing off your "fix" to us!! ..and I absolutely love ALL of it, but if you could only keep ONE thing..it should def be that maxi skirt :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Your husband is gonna kill me, but I like them all. If you HAVE to send something back, send the sweater. I love open backs too (it's like - surprise!) but I like maxis and polka dots and stripes more.

    ReplyDelete
  54. love the barn door backdrop! super cute outfits!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Um, first off, I kind of love you. That's not creepy at all, right? :) I think you made me laugh like a half dozen times in this post! I've been thinking about getting a "fix" and have signed up and everything, your looks are definitely selling me on it, I'm just nervous about the prices. Maxi skirts to you are like deals to me... I love the maxi and cardigan best, but honestly you styled them all so well it's hard to decide.

  56. I've done two Stitch Fixes so far and loved my last one a LOT more than the first. I must say, the prices are a little expensive but the items they sent you are SO cute. If I were you, I would have kept the whole box and saved the 25%. HA.

    ReplyDelete
  57. LOVE the polka dots and red! So cute!

  58. "I also love all things maxi. Minus pads."

    Ha!!! You're hilarious!!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. You're so stinkin' cute. Oh wait...I think I say that every time I visit your blog. I should probably try to think of something else to say. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  60. i hope you kept the maxi (skirt). and i hope i don't embarrass myself by reading about every single one of your fixes. and commenting. if i read and don't comment, then i won't have to be embarrassed. good plan.

    ReplyDelete

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
