This post is a few days late (life happened) but better late than never. Besides, what better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than curling up on the couch with a giant Pumpkin Spice Latte (the weather is gorgeous right now) and checking out my second box of Stitch Fix goodies? This box was filled with the perfect pieces for transitioning into fall weather (seriously, I need a wardrobe overhaul this season, #runningprobs).
If you don’t know what Stitch Fix is make sure you stop by this post before (or after) reading this one to see what this great styling service is all about! I’m honestly a little obsessed and this is only my second box! It’s like Christmas when you get that box in the mail. My initial thoughts upon opening this box were: “Oh no, my poor wallet,” and, “Please, please, please fit,” when I saw the olive jeans. Got your PSL? Good! Now sit back, relax, and enjoy.
The day I received my second fix from Stitch Fix, I had pinned an outfit to my “Chic-ly Inspired” board on Pinterest that included a pair of Olive colored skinny jeans so when I saw these babies in my box, I was thrilled (and slightly terrified that they wouldn’t fit). These Just Black Dean Skinny Jeans are a little pricey at $78 dollars but they are literally a dream come true. The ankle length is perfect (they come in Petite!) and I adore the zipper detailing. They have just enough stretch to make them extremely comfortable (I wore them to work Friday) and the fabric is so soft. As per my stylists instructions, I paired them with the Loveappella Tampa Knit Top, which was a total miss. In theory, I love this shirt. The fabric was dreamy soft and the gray contrasted well with the olive color of the jeans. However, there is no way I would ever pay $48 dollars for this shirt. I’ll go to Target, thanks.
The minute I saw this top, it was love at first sight. This Cerritos Tie Neck Blouse from Collective Concepts ($64) featured a funky design that reminds me of one of my favorite New York and Company dresses. I was really expecting to keep this shirt but unfortunately, the sizing just wasn’t quite right. For this fix, I changed my top sizes to small in order to avoid pieces that were too big like the first one but I can see now that that wasn’t the right decision. That’s what I love about Stitch Fix, each box gets better and better as you and your stylist figure out what pieces you like, what you’re willing to spend money on, and how different sizes compare.
My initial reaction to the Papermoon Kelli Mixed Material Embroidery Detail Knit Top ($58) was the same as the last top. I love it out of the box but once I put it on, there was just something I didn’t quite like about it. It may have been the subtle stripes but I think the inverted V-shaped colorblocking on the sides made my hips look bigger than they are (I mean, they are pretty big). Maybe I would have liked this top better worn with leggings instead of jeans (it really would be perfect for fall) but I just didn’t love it (or the price point) enough to keep it for only that.
Not pictured: The fifth item in my box was the Romolo Rita Teardrop Bib Necklace in Olive ($38). I didn’t even bother taking this out of the box because I’m way too excited about Chloe and Isabel to buy jewelry from anyplace else.
Overall, I was very pleased with this fix. I love my new jeans and since I’ve already worn them twice, I know they’re going to become a great fall staple. All this #OOTD from Friday was missing was a couple of Chloe and Isabel pieces to complete it. Be sure to check back in a few days for the unveiling of my C +I Starter Kit as well as information on my Grand Opening Online Pop-Up Shop! (P.S. The camera on my new phone is so good that you can distinctly see the pieces of dog hair I missed on my jacket).
If you haven’t scheduled your first fix yet, what are you waiting for? Do it today! You won’t regret it (your wallet might).
